Astrology: Expert explains what your star sign means about you
Every star sign has a soul mate sign, and it is the sign directly opposite your sign in the zodiac wheel. You’re also supposed to get along with the other signs in your element – Air, Fire, Earth or Water. Astrologers will normally point you in the direction of one of these aligning signs, but your element and opposite sign isn’t always that important. Express.co.uk chatted to astrologers Francesca Oddie (@francescaoddieastrology on Instagram) and Bex Milford (@cosmic_cures on Instagram) to find out which signs they think are best suited.
Aries’ opposite sign is Libra, so Aries people are probably on the hunt for a Libra or another Fire sign (Leo or Sagittarius).
Bex’s favourite match for Aries is Sagittarius. She explained: “The fire sign duo of passionate Aries and spontaneous, adventurous Sagittarius keep things sizzling!”
However, Francesca thinks Capricorn and Aries go together with the best.
She said: “Aries and Capricorn are both cardinal signs and they are both business people.
“They are focused and they want to be the best. They want material things and money and share a competitive, driven streak.”
Taureans are always told to look out for a dreamy Scorpio on the horizon since this is their opposite sign.
Other traditional suitors for Taurus are fellow Earth signs Capricorn and Virgo, but Bex and Francesca have other plans for the loyalty and luxury-loving Taurus.
Bex thinks Taurus and Cancer are a match made in heaven, saying: “sensuous, romantic Taurus and nurturing, emotionally available Cancer go well together.”
Francesca likes the sound of Taurus and Sagittarius and claims that she often comes across married couples with these signs.
She explained: “This is a brilliant match because they both love the great outdoors.
“Taurus is pretty chill and is happy to let Sagittarius be quirky and here, there and everywhere.
“The only thing is – Sagittarius isn’t that faithful and Taurus is super trusting and very loyal.
“If the faithfulness thing isn’t an issue and Taurus is happy on their own with Sagittarius going on adventures, it will work.”
Which star signs are most compatible: The opposite signs in the zodiac wheels are soulmates
Which star signs are most compatible: Geminis are meant to be drawn to Sagittarius, Libra and Aquarius
Gemini is supposed to be drawn towards Sagittarius, or the other Air signs Libra and Aquarius.
Bex loves Aquarius and Gemini together because both are open-minded, love a good conversation and have a curiosity for life.
She added: “Aquarius’ rebellious streak will be tolerated well by social butterfly Gemini.”
Gemini is almost never put together with Virgo, but Francesca said this is “hands down” the best match for Gemini.
She explained: “Gemini and Virgo are an easy match. They’re both a bit neurotic and clever, and they can be really constructive together.
“They’re both mutable signs, compromising, witty and intelligent. This is my go-to match for Gemini.”
Cancerians are put with Capricorns because they are opposite each other on the zodiac wheel.
This is a great match because Cancer is ruled by the Moon and deemed the mother of the zodiac, while Capricorn is seen as the father figure of the zodiac.
However, Cancer is also thought to work well with other water signs Scorpio and Pisces.
As mentioned, Bex also thinks Cancerians will do well in a relationship with Taureans because they are both open to romance and want to look after one another.
Which star signs are most compatible: Leos are meant to love Aquarians, but Francesca thinks they’re better off with Scorpios
Leo’s opposite sign is Aquarius, so these two will be very attracted to each other.
Leo may also have a thing for the other Fire signs Sagittarius and Aries.
However, Bex advises Leos to pay attention to Libras. She explained: “Leo loves to be loved and Libra loves to love, so this works well!
“The harmonising effect of Libra will balance out any showmanship from Leo.”
Francesca puts Leos with Scorpios quite a lot because they’re both fixed signs which means it’s a match of “lots of loyalty.”.
She said: “Leo is sunny and hot while Scorpio is magnetic and sexy. They’re magnetic. They’re both very popular and ooze sex appeal.”
Virgos are typically set up with Pisces and, according to Bex, that’s the best match for them!
She said: “Romantic, arty Pisces will help Virgo loosen up and go with the flow, while Virgo’s need to be of service and take off their partner and will be fine with Pisces.”
However, as mentioned, Francesca prefers Gemini for a sensible, organised Virgo.
Virgos should also keep an eye out for the other stable and grounded Earth signs Taurus and Capricorn.

Libra is all about relationships and is considered the star sign of marriage and long term partnerships, so they can generally get on with everyone.
However, Libra’s soulmate sign is Aries and Librans will also naturally take to Aquarius and Gemini (the other Air signs).
As mentioned in the Leo description, Bex believes Libra is best suited to Leo.
Francesca, on the other hand, thinks Sagittarius is a brilliant partner for Libra.
She said: “They are both compromising and great communicators. Sag likes a debate and Libra likes to play devil’s advocate.
“On top of that, they are both concerned with justice, with Sagittarius being ruled by Jupiter and Libra represented by the scales.”
Scorpio is opposite Taurus in the zodiac wheel, so these two are often attracted to one another.
Scorpios will have a deep understanding of the other sensitive Water signs Pisces and Cancer, so these could make good partners too.
However, Bex thinks Scorpio and Capricorn are the best matches of them all.
She said: “Capricorn doesn’t ever take things lightly and hates the idea of failure in relationships – they’re also super loyal.
“Scorpio can be intense but just wants someone to throw all their love onto, and this helps Capricorn come out of their shell.”
As mentioned above, Francesca likes the combination of Leo and Scorpio. This is a sexy and fun match.
Which star signs are most compatible: Libras get on with just about anyone
Sagittarius is Gemini’s soulmate sign, and this is widely considered the most natural match for Sagittarius.
However, we’ve already learnt that Francesca thinks Libra or Taurus is a better suitor for Sagittarius.
Francesca even thinks Sagittarius and Sagittarius would go together better. She said: “If two Sagittarians come together, they’ll both be dream-chasing, adventurous, and have that limitless potential thing going on.
“Sagittarians have tempers but let things go and they don’t hold grudges. A Sag on Sag duo will be lots of singing and dancing together in the sun.”
Capricorn’s traditional other half is Cancer and they may also take a liking to the other earth signs Taurus and Virgo.
Bex thinks Virgo is marriage material for Capricorn (as mentioned in the Virgo section), but Francesca thinks Pisces is an ideal partner for Capricorns.
She said: “Capricorn is a water goat or sea goat and when he climbs to the top of the mountain he becomes a unicorn.
“There’s a mystical side to our Capricorn friends so it connects well with the spiritual, sensitive fish.”
Which star signs are most compatible: Aquarius and Cancer are an unconventional match, but it works!
Aquarians are supposed to be drawn to Leos, Librans and Geminis and this is often the case, but not always.
Bex has already told us how much she likes Gemini and Aquarius couples in the Gemini section, but Cancer is another really beneficial match for Aquarius according to Francesca.
She said: “Aquarius and Cancer always seem to get married – they have nothing in common but each gives to each other what they lack.
“Aquarius is exceptionally rational, cool and detached and Cancer is the crab clinging on – totally emotional and irrational.”
Pisceans are supposed to love Virgos, but they might also feel connected to Cancer and Scorpio because they are also Water signs.
Bex believes Virgo is the best match for Pisces, and we’ve already heard Francesca’s reasons for why Pisces and Capricorn should cosy up.
Another suitable choice for Pisces is Libra, according to Francesca.
She explained: “Both like art, beauty, peacemaking and calm.
“I can see them living by the sea holding hands – it’s all very romantic.”
