“It seemed like a good idea at the time.” Those famous last words could be uttered of several key zodiacal pairings that, upon first romantic gaze, seem to be ideal, but later prove to be full of more heartache than a country song sung by Meat Loaf. (And is some pretty epic heartache right there!)
Before you rush off into the sunset with a partner that could potentially cramp your style, here are 5 astrological matches that — try as ye may — don’t always work out. (Don’t say we didn’t warn you!)
Gemini and Sagittarius
Air sign Gemini stokes the flames of fiery Sagittarius. Gemini’s dual nature is represented within the constellation of The Twins, while Sagittarius is frequently depicted as a centaur: half-man, half-horse — a mythical creature that combines two distinct species. In matters of love, the duality of both signs can often provoke discord as both signs are known for changing their feelings — or behavioral patterns — seemingly on a whim.
Scorpio and Taurus
Scorpio loves to take the lead in matters of the heart… And pretty much every other aspect of life, too! While Taurus is a born romantic, those born under this sign are also prone to rush headlong into matters and show a great disdain for being told what to do. (Think of the proverbial, cosmic bull in the China shop!) While both Scorpio and Taurus have a love for the finer things in life and a great appreciation for beauty and romance, they may find themselves embroiled in a power struggle that can overpower their enjoyment of one another.
Aries and Capricorn
Aries the Ram and Capricorn the Goat seem to have much in common on the surface: The cerebral, exacting nature… And the set of horns that come into play the second either determines that brute force must be used to emerge victorious. Their fundamental differences lie in the ways in which they view the world. Aries is far more action-oriented and will make a grand production out of life, while Capricorn prefers a much more subtle, controlled approach to life and love. These differences will cause major flare-ups between the two partners in yet another astrological example of two strong-willed signs engaged in a battle for dominance.
Leo and Pisces
Fire sign Leo and aquatic sign Pisces are a classic case of “fire and water.” Naturally charismatic, hard-charging Leo has a love for the spotlight, while easy-going, artistic Pisces could be perceived as a threat to Leo’s spotlight. Leo will boil Pisces still waters with the need to succeed. Conversely, status does not mean a great deal to Pisces and Leo may find its flame doused by Pisces.
Aquarius and Virgo
Happy-go-lucky Aquarius loves adventure and hates to be confined. Virgo, on the other hand, is strongly rooted in the earth and is happiest when he or she is adhering to a schedule. Both signs are naturally inquisitive, however, Virgo prefers to take a more rational, measured, even-keel approach to life and love while Aquarius is fond of grand gestures and demonstrations of love — a poet at-heart. Both signs will feel unappreciated by the other, which is less a matter of how much they truly may love one another, but rather a matter of misunderstanding, simply because their methods of expression differ so greatly.
