When we think about signs that have a fundamental affinity with each other, we naturally think about signs in the same element. These signs all trine each other, and the energy just flows, smooth and easy. I think this is right, but I would take it a step further. Each sign builds on the one that came before it. In my experience, the sign that came before yours in the same element will naturally get something about you that others don’t. So when you’re feeling misunderstood, look to the sign before you in your element for comfort.
Take the fire signs. I am all Leo. And sometimes, when I am expressing love, it comes in the form of EXUBERANT YELLING. Once, when my partner overdid it and got himself run down enough to get a nasty fever out of nowhere, my reaction went a little like this, “OMG YOU IDIOT I LOVE YOU SO MUCH GET IN BED AND EAT YOUR SOUP BEFORE I SHOVE IT DOWN YOUR THROAT.” Yeesh, right? Luckily, my partner is an Aries and understood my reaction completely. He saw it as the expression of love that it was and got in bed feeling thoroughly cared for. Sagittarius, on the other hand, would likely find all this a little too attached for their taste. Why not pull back and let people handle themselves? But Aries understands that sometimes love needs a little war.
In the same way, Sagittarius is grateful to Leo. Leo is the only other sign in the zodiac that understands why Sagittarius needs to expand. Leo invented “go big or go home.” So when Sagittarius struggles to explain why every conversation turns into a dissertation or why every project turns into a PRODUCTION, Leo is there to lend a sympathetic ear. Aries, on the other hand, is a little too efficient for all that. If the goal is achieved, who needs the fanfare? Just get what you want and get on with things. But Leo understands the need for flair.
And finally, Aries can breathe easy around Sagittarius. When every other sign is nursing hurt feelings from their brash self-expression, Sagittarius is there to point out that Aries was just being honest, after all. How can everyone get so mad when Aries and Sagittarius are just pointing out the truth that should be obvious? While Leo would be busy licking their ego wounds, Aries and Sagittarius can roast each other to hell and back. What’s wrong with a little brutal honesty?
While all the fire signs understand each other implicitly, I think this model stands. I also think it’s true for every element. Capricorn is grateful to Virgo because they are the only ones who understand why all of the practical details Capricorn manages actually matter. And Scorpio can feel at ease with Cancer because no one else fully grasps just how deep an emotional wound can go. Aquarius loves Libra because no other signs really get how important it is to have other people on board to actually accomplish anything big. The list goes on!
So tell us, which sign gets you?
