Why Are Opposite Signs On The Zodiac Wheel Attracted To Each Other?

The mystery of whether opposites attract is one of life’s biggest debates, however it can finally be settled with the help of the stars. Whilst most people tend to believe that dating someone similar to you is the best option, we’re here to fight the case for contrary personalities. According to the laws of astrology, personalities that are placed opposite each other on the zodiac wheel have an instant spark and attraction, which means that can’t keep their hands off each other. That's right, they are drawn to each other on a physical level but also on an intellectual level, based on their thirst for learning and discovery.

When we date someone who is native of the opposite sign to us, their influence helps create balance in the relationship. Indeed, they enrich us with their qualities and outlook on life. For example, Aries tends to be more aggressive and self-oriented, while Libra is more concerned about how others may feel. Together, Libra can show Aries how thinking of others first can be fulfilling, and Libra can show Aries how being more assertive can increase their drive and self-confidence. 

Why opposite zodiac signs are naturally drawn to each other

While traditional horoscope compatibility wouldn’t necessarily match opposite personalities, that’s not to say they aren’t deeply enticed towards each other. The opposites are complementary and have chemistry because what differentiates them, is also what brings them together. We think dating someone who is dissimilar to you on the surface is the secret ingredient to spicing up your life, and astrology certainly agrees! These astrological signs have little in common, yet they are very often drawn to each other like magnets!

Aries and Libra

Aries and Libra make a surprisingly smooth mix

Aries is a passionate fire sign, yet when they are around Libra, a sumptuous air sign, their heads instantly starts spinning. Although these zodiac signs are opposites, the attraction between them is intense, and they really do manage to bring the best out of each other. Aries fiery behavior is counterbalanced by Libra’s cool and easygoing influence.

Taurus and Scorpio

Taurus and Scorpio are both loyal partners

Taurus and Scorpio may be polar opposites, but they do in fact have lots of things in common, especially their need for stability and calm. Although they often approach situations differently, deep down they both crave stability and loyalty in relationships. Together, Taurus and Scorpio have what it takes to become the ultimate dream team in love.

Gemini and Sagittarius

Gemini and Sagittarius make a super fun couple

Despite Gemini and Sagittarius not exactly seeming like a match made in heaven, they do have a plethora of things in common! Both of these zodiac signs have so many layers to their personalities and always lead with their carefree and fun-loving side. Gemini and Sagittarius are definitely on the same wavelength and instantly bounce off each other.

Cancer and Capricorn

Cancer and Capricorn are a mix of homebodies

Cancer and Capricorn may seem very different, but their personalities blended together are very complementary. Cancer is naturally sensitive, and Capricorn helps ground them and bring them back to reality. This zodiac pairing will hit it off instantly thanks to their love of traditional values and their adaptable natures. Together they are the ultimate breath of fresh air!

Leo and Aquarius

Leo and Aquarius share similar mindsets

This pairing is the perfect mixture of fire and ice! Leo’s bold personality is toned down by Aquarius’ laid-back yet adventurous side. Leo’s commanding character is softened by the loving and tender Aquarius. While this pair appears to have very little in common on the surface, when we dig a little deeper, we soon notice their mutual admiration for each other.

Virgo and Pisces

Virgo and Pisces have strong points in common

Virgo and Pisces have electric chemistry and really do get on perfectly! This sensual mix of romanticism and sensitivity really will get pulses racing and helps to create great foundations for a lasting relationship. Pisces will help Virgo discover their creative side and could even bring out their spontaneity and impulsiveness!
