In horoscopes compatibility is assessed to discover the romantic relationships that are likely to be most successful. Certain signs are known to be well suited to one another, but those that are incompatible can also enjoy successful romances when they are aware of the possible weaknesses their relationship might face. Romances are looked at in terms of the character, goals and will power of every sign, and how they interrelate. Sun signs are more often used to gain a general understanding of others and oneself. When there is awareness, couples can combat their weaknesses and make the most of their strengths so that their relationships work more successfully. Ascertaining the different birth periods and planetary impacts on personality allows one to look in more detail at the compatibility between signs. Scorpio is the most intense, sensual sign. Most other signs are fearful of their potent natures, but they are usually gentle, loyal characters. Their cruelty is usually only exposed when they are treated harshly. Scorpios see things at their most extreme, with no middle ground. They can be possessive of their partners and are also prone to obsession. Those who have their Venus in cancer get on well with Scorpios because they share the water element of their signs. Cancers are warm and maternal, which energizes scorpios. Scorpio and Cancer are both adoring and affectionate. Cancers don't often fear the intense natures of Scorpios, and these two signs both value commitment. This pair embraces intimacy, so their romance is usually extremely close. The darker, harder edges of both characters receive balance from their empathetic traits. Virgos value romance far less than water signs do, so they get on better with earth signs. Security and practicality are deeply valued by both Virgo and Taurus, so the couple tends to have a satisfactory relationship. When they share interests and hobbies, the two partners tend to find their relationship more pleasurable. When Taurus and Virgo are in a relationship, the latter can sometimes feel as though he is contributing more to the romance. Leo has earthy traits and enjoys being independent. Leos are most concerned with their goals, but they also need plenty of affirmation from others. Taurus is willing to offer this, which makes their coupling a long term one. Both partners have stubborn traits that can create conflict. Leos tend to have a far more playful partnership with Geminis. The two signs have a sense of drama, so they have a fascinating relationship. Gemini is intellectual, which can make Leo feel undervalued. The Leo Gemini attachment has its foundations in their solid friendship. Pisces is one of the most sensual signs, which makes him the ideal partner for passionate Aries. Pisces offers affection and flattery, which Aries values. The stubborn natures of both partners comes with its own problems, especially when Aries criticizes. The passion that exists in this partnership is an excellent payoff for the less stable elements it tends to have. Capricorn and Taurus enjoy a purposeful relationship that is filled with affection. The coupling is usually stable. In horoscopes compatibility between these two signs is enhanced by the devotion and loyalty both partners have. Their shared values also strengthen the partnership.
