Opposites attract, or so they say…but here’s the thing: it’s not always easy. Anyone who’s dated their polar opposite knows it takes work to make it work. In stars, as in life, opposites are one thing. The zodiac has cosmic pairs called polarities, which are two signs that are directly opposite each other in the elliptical and are six signs away from each other (like Aries, the first sign in the zodiac, and Libra, the seventh).
Like two sides of the same heart-shaped necklace, a pair of opposites shines with a striking aura that can leave us wondering: what makes these two beauties work? Whether it’s an epic friendship, a marriage, or a hot night, there’s a definite atmosphere written in the stars for opposites.
ARIES + LIBRA
This duo is trying to strike that delicate balance between oneself and others. Aries is the burning and impulsive Lone Star (ruled by Mars and stubborn), while Libra (directed by Venus seeking balance) prefers to be part of a group. Aries shakes things, while Libra is frightened at the first sign of conflict. Best case scenario? Libra teaches Aries how to relax and share the stage, while Aries teaches Libra about the joys of reflectors and expressing how she really feels sometimes.
TAURUS + SCORPIO
Taurus and Scorpius are the most likely couple to complement each other, as both are known for their focus on values and money. Taurus, ruled by Venus, is these earthly delights ,and Scorpius (ruled by Pluto, god of the underworld) shrugs his shoulders from the material Kingdom for its epic deep dives. In different ways, each one completes and greatly enriches the life of the other. Taurus can offer Scorpius much pleasure and ground connection (in the bedroom and finances) while Scorpius urges Taurus to explore the wild unknown (and loosen the strings a little bit).
GEMINI + SAGITTARIUS
Like the world travelers of the cosmos, Gem and Sag are very curious about each other and everything. Gemini focuses on details, while Sagittarius adventurer (ruled by the expansive Jupiter) has to do with the overall picture. Together, they’re practically unstoppable.
CANCER + CAPRICORN
Capricorn Foreman and nutritional cancer embody the most emblematic yin-yang vibe. Capricorn, ruled by Saturn ultra severo, likes logic and knows how to work, work and work, while Moon-ruled Cancer floats in more intuitive waters. High-profile racing and a comfortable home are the trademarks of this duo. Kate Middleton and Prince William are a Cappy-Cancer marriage and live in a palace, so…
LEO + AQUARIUS
These two know how to have fun. Leo prefers a Great Gatsby-style celebration, while Aquarius organizes a barefoot gathering in the woods. Leo climbs the social ladder while Aquarius goes out into the street, protests and literally lives in a commune. These two are launching the city’s most Dancing evenings, with vegan crudités and a guest list filled with the coolest people.
VIRGO + PISCES
Virgo is the sexy librarian of the zodiac and Pisces is the Dreamer softy who seeks guru. They both want to be at the service of others, but their approaches are different. Virgo teaches Pisces about proper wellness protocols and text message etiquette, while Pisces gently suggests that Virgo relaxes, takes a spiritual retreat, and sometimes dreams bigger.
