In astrology compatibility, signs – sun signs, that is – are only a small part of the story. However, the respective mode of two partners’ sun signs can give us clues as to how they express themselves within a relationship. When both partners have fixed sun signs – Taurus, Leo, Scorpio and Aquarius – how will that affect their astrological compatibility?
In order to find out, it’s important to understand what fixed signs have in common. Sharing life principles is always a good basis for compatibility, and zodiac signs which are fixed, one from each element, all share a deep desire to maintain the status quo, and all tend to be stubborn, down to earth and practical about doing so. As a general rule, fixed sign people don’t like change very much, and do like to be in charge of their own lives, not taking kindly to being bossed around. In love astrology, compatibility signs are good between the four fixed signs, but with reservations. Let’s find out why.
Taurus is the first fixed sign in the zodiac, and belongs to the earth element. Famously stubborn, Taurus is perhaps the best illustration of the immovability of a fixed sign. Once your Taurus lover takes up an opinion or a stance, they’re not budging, which can make communication difficult and compromise nearly impossible. Leo, the next fixed sign, is a fire fixed sign, and expresses this deep rootedness slightly differently, by being rooted or fixed to its own power and dominance. Leo is the bossiest sign in the zodiac, and also one of the most demanding when it comes to relationships, because your Leo lover absolutely demands to be adored. For astrology compatibility, signs like Taurus and Leo need understanding, somewhat flexible partners who won’t try to change Taurus or Leo, but will adapt and find strategies to deal with their tenacious grip on what they believe is right.
The third fixed sign is Scorpio, the water fixed sign. Scorpio is quite different to both Taurus and Leo in its intensity and love of power, but expresses the same obstinate defiance which is characteristic of a fixed sign. Scorpio’s fixed qualities will be most evident during a row or a disagreement, when your Scorpio lover will single-mindedly or even obsessively seek to win – or seek revenge if they lose. The final fixed sign of the zodiac is Aquarius, an air fixed sign. Aquarius isn’t as bossy as Leo, nor as jealous and possessive as Taurus and Scorpio, but your Aquarius lover expresses his or her fixed qualities intellectually, becoming highly dogmatic over ideas and projects. It’s tough to win an argument against an Aquarius. For astrology compatibility, signs like Scorpio and Aquarius need partners who can cope with inflexibility, whether it’s over power issues like Scorpio or over abstract ideas like Aquarius.
Generally, the fixed signs are compatible with one another, because each of them understands the others’ needs for stability and purpose. However, there are greater and lesser degrees of fixed sign compatibility. Taurus and Scorpio are a good potential match in terms of astrology compatibility. Signs are that this relationship will be extremely intense and that jealousy will play a major role, but the two signs respect one another’s boundaries and will learn to play it out. Leo and Aquarius are also potentially good soul mates, if Leo can let go a little of freedom loving Aquarius, and if Aquarius can remember to flatter Leo’s ego enough.
Love matches between Taurus and Aquarius or Taurus and Leo, or between Leo and Scorpio or Aquarius and Scorpio, however – here the astrology compatibility signs are nowhere near as good. Ultimately, what you have in the above combinations is two very stubborn people who are not prepared to give in to each other’s different ways of being. Often, these fixed signs would fare better in a relationship with a mutable sign (Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius or Pisces) who can adapt to their inflexibility.
Remember though that compatibility and zodiac signs are not the whole picture. For a true analysis of your relationship, you need an Astromatcha astrology compatibility report based on your full birth charts, not just your sun signs.
