We don't know who we are going to fall in love with even when we have an ideal in our mind but astrology might help us understand who we share an amazing connection with.

Opposites attract, or so people say. It's an old adage but many people might be skeptical if they value having a partner who is more similar to them. However, attraction works in mysterious ways and who we end up having chemistry with is not under our control. We might want someone with whom we have common interests but could end up falling for someone who challenges us by being the exact opposite. There is no absolute way to tell but perhaps astrology can help. This art of foretelling can inform us what zodiac signs share great chemistry, even if they are opposites.
These two signs seem very unlike each other. While the Aries is an action-oriented and ambitious sign, Libra is more subtle and people-oriented. One is a fire and the other an air sign. And yet, this match can work well for many people since you would push each other towards greatness. Where the differences end the similarities begin. The level of charm both of you have over people and each other can be difficult for either of you to ignore. As a pair, you are likely to have an exciting and fun-filled time together.
These two signs may seem to be at each other's throats all the time, but that is only because they both have intensity. While the earthy Taurean prefers to maintain the status quo, the water sign is all for shaking things up. In fact, they might attract change a lot. Whatever the other lacks, the partner can make up for in this companionship. Taurus is all about persevering while the Scorpio uses their intellect and passion for going after their dreams. Together, it's a team that's unstoppable.
This is another unlikely pairing between an air (Gemini) and fire (Sagittarius) sign. Both of you are likely to be introverted and extroverted in parts. These qualities may come out depending on one's mood. However, it might be difficult to predict a Sagittarius person's mood. These dynamic changes can seem exciting for the Gemini, who seeks intellectual stimulation more than anything else. Both of you are capable of understanding the other well too. While there may be some arguing, what healthy couple doesn't have small fights?
These two signs are very attracted to each other and share an electric chemistry. Both may have different personalities but that just gives them more ground to cover together. Each sign aims for success in their own way and they can learn from each other. Cancer can be moody and hide in their nook or want to spend an entire day outside. The levelheaded Capricorn is likely to be a good partner through all these phases, even if they might need some convincing. They might have similar ideas about long-lasting relationships and the importance of family. Their dedication to and patience with each other can make this relationship a success. Whatever arguments they have can be solved together with effective and open communication.
While the fiery Leo likes to be the center of attention at all times and keep a handle over everything, Aquarius is the exact opposite. They might care as much about making things go their way alone. In fact, the Aquarius is somewhat of a lonely wolf. They like to not be controlled, which is where there might be clashes with Leo. Once the Leo partner learns to accept the Aquarius partner as they are, there can be a lot more peace in the relationship. Meanwhile, action-oriented Leo can empower Aquarius to put their many ideas into action. They can be good mentors for Aquarius, who is more intellectual and can be laid back.
This is a great example of how opposites can feel attracted to each other. The Virgo can have a reserved personality while the Pisces is likely to be loved by those around them. These two signs are great at bridging each other's needs. The persistent Virgo can help the Pisces get to their dreams while the latter can help the earth sign find their footing in their emotional life. The fun-loving and sweet Pisces can cajole the Virgo out of their shell to express more freely.
