Love Sign Pairings - Part I

Everyone wants to find their perfect match, their soul mate, that one person that they are meant to be with. And why shouldn't we? We all want to feel comfortable with our special someone and feel that they know us inside and out!

Many people believe that when we were born has a lot to do with who we are compatible with. Every person has a Zodiac sign which indicates when they were born and also, could indicate what type of person they will become.

For instance a woman born in mid October is a Libra and she is therefore believed to be charming, flirtatious, sensitive and appreciative of art and all things beautiful. Now this does not apply to every Libran obviously but some people let their star signs guide their future and put a lot of faith into their love sign pairing.

Zodiac Signs

The signs, and dates of the twelve Zodiacs are as follows:

  • Aquarius (The Water Bearer): 20th January to 18th February.

  • Aries (The Ram): 21st March to 19th April.
  • Taurus (The Bull): 20th April to 20th May.

The Zodiacs are further split into 'elements' of Earth, Air, Fire and Water and three Zodiac signs fall into each element as follows:

  • Earth: Taurus, Virgo and Capricorn.
  • Air: Gemini, Libra and Aquarius.
  • Fire: Aries, Leo and Sagittarius.
  • Water: Cancer, Scorpio and Pisces.

Each Zodiac also has a ruling planet, a different birth stone and a symbol.

It is believed that each one has significant characteristics which are highlighted below:

  • Aquarius: Those born under this sign are meant to be either lively or shy but overall they are honest and strong willed. Some may think you are a loner as you like your own company but this also means that you are independent and are not swayed easily. Famous Aquarians include Clark Gable, Oprah Winfrey and Nick Nolte.
  • Pisces: Pisceans are kind and generous and worry about other people and their problems rather than focusing on their own. They can also be indecisive and some can have low concentration levels. Famous Pisceans include Sally Jessy Raphael and Ted Kennedy.
  • Aries: There is nothing more satisfying than a good challenge to an Aries. They are energetic, honest and open but can be impatient and sometimes aggressive. Famous Aries are Sarah Jessica Parker, Warren Beatty and Eddie Murphy.
  • Taurus: A dependable and determined character who does not like change. Generally an intelligent person with a good sense of humour. Famous Taureans include George Cloony, Uma Thurman and Al Pacino.
  • Gemini: Two sides to every Gemini apparently which can cause some confusion. A Gemini may continue to behave like a child all throughout their adulthood, to some you will be two-faced and to others the best friend ever. Gemini's can be very intelligent, energetic and happy but also mean and passive aggressive. Famous Gemini's include Clint Eastwood, Paul McCartney and Nicole Kidman.
  • Cancer: Apparently someone born into the Cancer sign is very difficult to understand. Cancerians enjoy big families and prefer to spend time at home but can have a good gossip like anyone else. They are also very patriotic and loyal. Famous Cancerians include Princess Diana, Angelica Huston and George Michael.
  • Leo: A very ambitious person who is logical and can be a bit of an extrovert. Leo's like to have lots of friends and are very out going and helpful to those around you. They can sometimes be hard on themselves and love power. Famous Leos include Hulk Hogan and Jackie Onassis.
  • Virgo: A very intelligent, creative and patient sign. Virgos are observant, charming and logical but they can also be judgemental and keep their feelings to themselves. Famous Virgos include Keannu Reeves, Shelley Long and Lauren Bacall.
  • Libra: Apparently the most desired of signs. Librans are generally believed to be beautiful as well as kind and gentle with a dislike of anyone who is cruel. They are creative and charming but can also be impatient. Famous Librans include Tim Robbins, Catherine Zeta Jones and Dwight Eisenhower.
  • Scorpio: Considered a powerful and emotional sign, Scorpios are fun and energetic. They can be passionate in relationships but they also seem withdrawn in social situations and take things to heart too much. Famous Scorpios include Leonardo DeCaprio, Jodi Foster and Grace Kelly.
  • Sagittarius: A person born under Sagittarius is optimistic and enjoys life, they like to be extrovert and adventurous but can also be impatient. Famous Sagittarians include Bette Midler, Sammy Davis Jnr and Dick Van Dyke.
  • Capricorn: Of all the Zodiac signs, this is the most serious. Capricorns are confident and like to be independent but they are often critical of themselves and can be prone to mood swings. Famous Capricorns include Faye Dunnaway, Anthony Hopkins and Edgar Allan Poe.
