” She adds that it can be helpful to take note of what type of sign your partner is. “Water and earth signs are generally compatible, whereas fire and air signs tend to go well together. ” But again, this isn’t a hard-and-fast rule, since so much depends on where other planets in your chart are. “In general, other signs of the same modality—fire, earth, water, air—are compatible, ” says, an astrologist who trained with the renowned astrology writer and researcher, author of. “If someone shares your Sun sign, I feel it can go either way. Sometimes there is great understanding of each other and sometimes it’s too much of one energy. There are also some signs that share certain basic motivations such as a sense of security, the need for excitement, or intellectual stimulation. Knowing your—and your partner’s, if you want to be thorough—natural strengths, weaknesses, needs, and insecurities can help make us all a little less blind in the search for love. Strengths: Aries are passionate and good at physically expressing their love. They're natural motivators and can help encourage their partners to take action towards their goals, says Shea. Weaknesses: Aries often like to go it alone and do it their way, so compromise and coordinating with others can take practice. Advice for Dating One: When dating an Aries, don’t plan a sedentary date, says Shea. If you’re going to dinner, walk somewhere or go dancing. Compliment them and ask questions about their life. Don’t be afraid to challenge them with something like a game of darts or pool. Take them somewhere they’ve never been or to do an activity they’ve never done. Surprise them—but find out their interests first, so that you have a sense it's something they might like. Strengths: Tauri are generally reliable and faithful, says Shea. They're excellent planners and can help keep their partners grounded and on track. Their sensuality makes them good lovers, and often, good cooks. Weaknesses:
Tauri aren't the best at being flexible and establishing emotional intimacy, says Shea. They aren’t always able to roll with it if their partner deviates from the plan. Additionally, they're learning to open up emotionally and not always make decisions from a practical standpoint, but from their heart. Advice for Dating One: Spoil them. You don’t necessarily need to spend a lot of money, but it should appear as if you thoughtfully planned things. Sensory pleasures such as flowers, a special bottle of wine, or a spectacular view will be very appreciated. If you do a group thing, smaller groups are better. Don’t surprise them too much. Tauri will feel more comfortable with low-key, traditional dating activities. You can still make it fun and add some spontaneity, but don’t push them to try something they’re hesitant about doing—that’s not likely to go over well. Strengths: Geminis keep things interesting and their flexibility makes it easy to go with the flow when life brings unexpected challenges, says Shea. They can help their partner move forward when they get stuck, and their ability to analyze things from all angles make them excellent problem-solvers. They can forget to appreciate something great happening in the present and their partners could feel slighted. Advice for Dating One: Make it interesting. Ask lots of questions and get them to share their opinions and ideas, suggests Shea. Don’t let the conversation lag. Tell stories, discuss books, movies, or whatever it takes to hold their interest. Don’t get angry if they disagree with you. Don’t avoid a debate. Go with it and turn a difference of opinion into a lively, flirtatious exchange. Compatible with: Pisces, Scorpio, Taurus, Capricorn, and some other CancersStrengths:

Cancers are loving, affectionate partners who will do just about anything for someone they love, says Shea. They will be a champion, confidant and safe haven for their partner. Cancers are excellent at letting their partner know how much they value them by helping them to identify, share, and express emotion. Weaknesses: Cancers are emotionally fine-tuned, which means they have the ability to acknowledge all of their feelings all the time. This can translate to moodiness, and also cause them to expect their partners to be able to communicate their feelings just as well and easily. Cancers are learning to realize that other people are not as intuitive and emotionally sensitive. When they remember this, they can give their partners the benefit of the doubt. Advice for Dating One: Tune into their mood, suggests Shea. A date with a Cancer won’t be as much about what you do but how you do it—with feeling. Make a general plan, but watch their body language and ask lots of questions to make sure they're having a good time. Share childhood memories. I’d avoid hanging in a group for first dates, but if you do, a small group like a double date is ideal. Don’t try to impress them with grand gestures. A limo or a helicopter ride won’t thrill them as much as just looking into their eyes and giving them your undivided attention. Don’t be afraid to let your guard down and be genuine. Strengths: Leos are all heart, says Shea. They will love their partners unabashedly and can be extremely generous with their time, resources, and affection. They know how to keep things fun and can help their partners get more joy out of life. Weaknesses: It can be hard for Leos to remember the needs of their partners, as they're often working towards personal goals. Advice for Dating One: Make it playful and fun!
Think of activities that will generate laughter, smiles, and carefree goofiness, says Shea. Leos enjoy hamming it up, so consider finding a photo booth. Dress boldly and confidently. Encourage them to express themselves. Leos love parties, since they enjoy large groups. Beware of talking about yourself too much. No one likes this, but Leos in particular hate it. Put the focus on them and ask about their work, passions, and dreams. Don’t plan a quiet evening, at least for the first few dates. Avoid atmospheres that feel overly formal or stifling in any way. Compatible with: Capricorn, Taurus, Pisces, Scorpio, and some other VirgosStrengths: Virgos will do everything they can to please and take care of their partner, says Shea. They have a knack for tuning in their partner’s needs and making them feel special. They’re generally reliable people and sensible decision makers. Advice for Dating One: Be well groomed—look and smell your best, says Shea. Plan specific, thoughtful details that let them know you were thinking about them. For example, play a CD from a band they mentioned liking or seek their favorite food. Small group activities could be fun, especially if your Virgo date chooses the company. Don’t be late. Don’t be too loud or make a move too fast. It’s not that Virgos don’t want to have a good time, but being too blunt can be off-putting to them. They much prefer someone who can slowly build intensity over time. They’re wired for cooperation, collaboration, and teamwork.
They're masters at the art of negotiation and compromise. They're often generous lovers. Weaknesses: Libras sometimes keep their feelings hidden so they won’t rock the boat. When this happens, their partner misses the opportunity to address what might be bothering them and hidden resentments can build over time. Advice for Dating One: Be polite. Manners are important to Libras. Look stylish and plan something social, says Shea. Going to a party or engaging in a group activity will light them up. Go somewhere with an aesthetically pleasing environment and pay them compliments. Don’t try to flirt by starting a disagreement. Creating tension might work great with other signs like Aries, Gemini or Scorpio, but Libras like harmony. You don’t have to agree with everything they say, however, you may want to politely agree to disagree and move on to more pleasant topics like art, music, travel and what you find beautiful in life. Compatible with: Cancer, Pisces, Virgo, Taurus, and some other ScorpiosStrengths: Scorpios are known as the sexy sign, says Shea. They will likely be great lovers and make their partners feel desirable. Weaknesses: While Scorpios are masters at extracting emotional information from others, they can be a closed book when it comes to sharing their feelings. It will be important for a Scorpio’s partner to take the time to talk with them and find out what’s going on beneath the surface. Advice for Dating One: Be real. Of course, put effort into your appearance, but make sure you look authentic, so don’t wear something you’d never normally wear, says Shea. Don’t make small talk.
It will bore a Scorpio and make them suspicious about your motivations. Dive in with poignant questions that show you really want to get to know them. But first, share an intimate detail about your life.
