So this how-to is an explanation of all the signs, which signs are compatible, and why those certain traits create such good chemistry. This should be helpful for bio writing and ship rps!
♡ Part One: Astrological Signs Explained ♡
So astrological signs, or horoscopes, are the creature and traits that correspond to the time of year you were born. For example, my birthday is April 23 so my sign is a Taurus and some of the main traits of a Taurus are being stubborn, charismatic, and creative. Not to be cocky or rude, but I think those are two of my strengths and one of my weaknesses so it describes me pretty well. So, I’d be pretty compatible with a Pisces because they’re more introverted and go with the flow while I’m more extraverted and persistant. The two contrasting signs balance each other into a good match. All people are different but a lot of times, the horoscopes do play a part in compatibility.
♡Part Two: All Horoscopes & Their Traits ♡
So in this section I’m going to list all of the zodiac signs and their traits so you can get a feel for each sign. I researched these from a bunch of different websites and rewrote descriptions in my own words. Compatibility will be in Part Three.
Aquarius is one of the air signs and most of the people born in this time frame are emotionally detached, have a strong personality, and are extremely likable people. Aquarius’s are extremely independent people who’d flee if someone tried to hold them down or restrict them. They’re aloof and never get too emotionally attached, preferring to be flighty and free. They don’t look at things practically, rather they deviate from the crowd and find their own unequivocal way to do things. They don’t like to over think things, preferring to just smile and move on. They’re very bright and amazing at working with others. In a relationship they’re extremely devoted and want complete openness; if they’re betrayed, they’ll stay away forever. They don’t want to talk about emotions or commitment, rather common interests.
MOST COMPATIBLE WITH: Aries, Gemini, Taurus, & Libra.
Pisces are known as a morphing sign, and the most abstract out of the whole Zodiac. They’re very sensitive, peaceful and willing to help others. Yet, they’re idealists and not very realistic. They let others lead them even though they don’t like being told what to do by people who think they’re superior, which makes them so complex. Pisces are creative but without a dominant figure in their life to lead them, they can get lost in the clouds. They’re sensitive and loyal friends who’d take on a friend’s pain and suffer as if it was their own. Their feelings often dictate their behavior. They’d be terrible managers but a good member of a team. In love, they give their heart purely to their partner and end up giving more than they receive. They care more about a spiritual union than a sexual one and end up letting their partners manipulate them.

They’re masters of communication and advice but they’re not ones to play the therapist and listen to other’s emotional problems.

♡ Part Three: The Best Pairs & Why ♡
From lots of research and real life comparisons, these are in my opinion, the best pairs of the Zodiac signs. Take everything with a grain of salt my friends!
AQUARIUS & GEMINI:
Gemini’s love to talk, but not about emotions. This suits the Aquarius who tends to run if they’re being too emotionally pressed. They’re both intellectual and free spirited so they’re able to have a super stimulating mental connection. They can easily share conversation and be platforms for each other’s creativity. They’re witty, super smart, and will always be stimulating each other mentally and physically.
PISCES & VIRGO:
Romione. Ron and Hermione. This really is the two fictional character’s Zodiac signs and wow does it describe them to a T. These two will always bring out the best in each other considering they’re opposite signs. The Virgo will be a strong place for the Pisces to come clean with their emotions and put faith in themselves while the Pisces will encourage the Virgo to be less serious and enjoy the present. There’s no stronger natural bond than the one between Virgo and Pisces which is why heated arguments are settled quickly with compromise. Just think about the way Ron and Hermione bring out the best sides of each other. That’s the ultimate Pisces/Virgo connection.
ARIES & LEO:
Both of these fire signs love being the center of attention which can cause for some arguments and competition but, y’know, hot makeup sex. They’re super passionate so the relationship is always exciting. They both respect each other and don’t hold grudges so arguments are never a major issue. Aries will always initiate things and the Leo will make sure to follow it through. Their passion is red-hot and make for a dynamic pairing.
TAURUS & SCORPIO:
These two opposites come together to balance each other’s weaknesses. They won’t always work out but when it does, it’s amazing. They’re both high in sexuality and it creates an intense attraction between the two. They both ache for security and although they come about it through possession and power, respectively, they’re both willing to make sure their partner feels secure. The planets created a romantic and sexual love creating a totally intense relationship. Once they put all their fears to the side, they’re able to have an intense, nurturing, heated relationship.
CANCER & CAPRICORN:
Capricorn’s are logical, down-to-earth while Cancer’s are emotional, creating a heavenly balance between realism and romantics. They both respect each other; the Capricorn finding joy in the Cancer’s persistance and the Cancer finding dedication in the Capricorn. The Cancer can pull the Capricorn out of their work and show them all the achievements they’ve unlocked because of it. If the two allow each other to use their strength’s, then the relationship will go far. They’re completely devoted to one another, share a love of fine things, and aren’t afraid to work hard to get what they want.
LIBRA & SAGITTARIUS:
This combination of signs can prove to be true bliss for each partner if they play their card’s right. They have a very special connection and deep understanding of one another. The Libra serves as a great companion for the wisdom-seeking Sagittarius and keeps things fun. There’s something about the two that allows the relationship to stay fresh and exciting, while at the same time, immensely intimate, because of their natural understanding of one another. With each other, they find it easy to forgive and forget over any hurt feelings or squabbles. Libra, the air sign, helps spread Sagittarius, the fire sign, into something heated. The Sagittarius is able to keep their feeling of freedom while adapting to the Libra’s ever changing mind. They both love to learn and try new things, while depending one on another.
