It is not uncommon to turn to marriage horoscopes for advice on compatibility and choosing the best partner according to your Zodiac sign. However, the horoscopes and natal charts that may really offer astrological insight into one's personality are more complex than just knowing a person's date of birth. Another essential thing for a lasting marriage or relationship is both partners being willing to compromise and see past each other's flaws. Nobody is perfect, and as for flaws, any astrological context seems to cast more than just a few on a brand new human being who is entering this world.
Typical horoscopes based on date of birth are nothing but generalizations. Still, they may be useful when it comes to surprises you need to be on the lookout for when considering a certain Zodiac sign representative as a long-term partner.
Aries (21.03 — 20.04)
Aries are very adventurous, ambitious, competitive and independent .
Positive aspects: They are typically leaders, fighters, and winners who always strive to be the first and the best. With good skills for managing and organizing, they tend to be 'big picture' people and think broadly about projects, ideas, and goals. Aries are passionate and they relish the opposite sex, but they also put passion into everything they do or plan to achieve. They always know what they want and tell you what they are thinking, so you won't have to guess.
Negative aspects: Aries may be authoritative, impatient, and uncompromising, and their married life is often an ongoing power struggle. Be forewarned that you will not change Aries or their attitudes, you can only accept them the way they are.
Taurus (21.04 — 20.05)
Think reliability, loyalty and down-to-earth common sense.
Positive aspects: If you've had some trust issues in the past, your vision of an ideal partner is that of someone honest and faithful — for deep commitment — just like Taurus.
Negative aspects: Though Taureans may be a great match for an enduring love life, they are realistic, practical, stubborn and determined; outspoken, moody and possessive. Additionally, they can be both frugal and thriftless — and yes, these are often the same person.
Gemini (21.05 — 21.06)
Inventive, spontaneous, fun-loving and caring — you won't be bored!
Positive aspects: Geminis are open-minded, imaginative, innovative, bright, quick skilled, communicative and humorous. You will be idealized — that's how much they love you!
Negative aspects: They crave variety, so you have to keep things interesting and to be willing to embrace change and restlessness, otherwise Geminis tend to get really cranky.
Cancer (22.06 — 22.07)
Are you looking for a stable and homely family life? Look no further than Cancer!
Positive aspects: Cancerians invest everything they have in their relationships, home, and family. They are affectionate, romantic, caring, loyal, and willing to go above and beyond for the people they love.
Negative aspects: Cancerians are deeply emotional, moody, and easy to offend. They tend to hold grudges and believe they know better than you. So, it’s quite natural for them to tell you what you should do (it's meant with love!), and give you a hard time if you don't listen. You have to learn to accept their advice even if you aren't going to follow it — and if you beg to differ, you'll have to beg both literally and figuratively, otherwise a Cancerian will pinch you just like a real Cancer.
Leo (23.07 — 23.08)
The true royalty of the zodiac, they demand your undivided attention in exchange for kindly letting you share the spotlight with your "majesty" spouse!
Positive aspects: Big-hearted, noble-minded, courageous, and generous, Leos expect to be admired, praised and loved by all — and they usually are.
Negative aspects: Leos tend to be extravagant and wasteful, and they have an ego that needs to be stroked. Many male as well as female Leos are insanely jealous, so instead of romantic gestures they will shower you with questions like: "Where have you been?", "Where are you going?", "When will you be back?", "Who's calling you at such an hour?" etc.
Virgo (24.08 — 23.09)
Common sense reasoning is their middle name, so you'd best harbor no illusions.
Positive aspects: Smart and savvy, completely practical and rational as they are, and very hard-working, too, Virgos still manage to find time, compassion, and support for their special someone.
Negative aspects: The kind of stuff you buy to ‘treat yourself’ is nothing but reckless spending and a waste of money in their opinion. So you will have to keep your expenses under control and kiss your shopping sprees or impulse purchases goodbye.
Libra (24.09 — 23.10)
They are best described with a cute pet name "Honey Bunny" but are often nicknamed 'people-pleaser'.
Positive aspects: Libras are charming, adorable, very kind-hearted and lots of fun to be with. True to their name and symbol (the scales), they value balance and harmony, and dislike arguments and drama, which makes them very diplomatic partners.
Negative aspects: Libras have a hard time making decisions, big or small, as well as saying 'no' to others. This is why they are likely to say 'yes' to many things at once but not necessarily follow through. They don't mean to put everyone's needs before theirs, but it may happen — or may well look like that — because they just want everyone to get along and to be happy.
Scorpio (24.10 — 22.11)
Passionate, mysterious and full of energy, they are often considered the sexiest Zodiac sign.
Positive aspects: Scorpios are suspicious by nature, but honest. Honesty is one of the things they value most in a relationship. They are crazy and passionate about everything they are interested in, and invest their heart and soul into what they love.
Negative aspects: Your love, loyalty and respect has to be proven constantly to Scorpios, or else they may become clingy and needy, possessive or manipulative, controlling and jealous. Their constant mood swings and sarcastic sense of humor is not everyone's cup of tea — especially if you add their interest for all things psychic, dark, and occult to the mix.
Sagittarius (23.11 — 21.12)
A unique combination of optimism and realism, they are honest, openhearted, friendly, and good fun to be around.
Positive aspects: They are communicative, fond of traveling, with a strong sense of individuality, and tolerant of the flaws and faults of other people. If you hate getting into petty arguments, then a Sagittarius is your best bet. They love deeply, although it may be difficult to settle them down.
Negative aspects: For these born adventurers, personal freedom and individuality tend to come before anything else. If a Sagittarius finds a partner who is able to give them enough freedom and does not become too dependent on them, their marriage is likely to work out well and last for a long time.
Capricorn (22.12 — 20.01)
Capricorns hold themselves to very high standards.
Positive aspects: Earth signs are reliable and loyal, committed to their partners and family. Capricorns are incredibly hard-working and self-disciplined. They are trustworthy, responsible and family-oriented, but have a strong focus on their career goals and financial stability, and therefore consider marriage later than other signs.
Negative aspects: They can be stubborn, persistent, difficult to communicate with, and emotionally reserved, but highly likely to romanticize and idealize their partner. Capricorns can be pretty hard on themselves, and it doesn't take much to break their heart.
Aquarius (21.01— 20.02)
There is hardly a chance for boredom in their married life — or stability, for that matter.
Positive aspects: Insanely adventurous and creative, the restless Aquarius has a wild enthusiasm for trying new things, which is intoxicating. If you are looking for someone who will always be fun — in and out of the bedroom — Aquarius is a good pick, but still, it doesn't make him good marriage material.
Negative aspects: Aquarius is not the domesticated type and absolutely doesn't care for homely bliss or a cozy nest. Being committed is very difficult for the representatives of this sign, as they are too independent and restless to accept the sacrifices and compromises of marriage.
Pisces (21.02 — 20.03)
Their idealistic nature means they consider it their mission to fulfill all the wishes of their partner.
Positive aspects: Lovers and dreamers, Pisces are very romantic, affectionate, creative, and imaginative, with a strong faith in love and the miracles it will bring into their life. Their beliefs and values are very important, but Pisces, with their head in the clouds, may often get lost in their fantasies and daydreams.
Negative aspects: Pisces easily lose sight of reality and all the practicalities, and have a hard time handling responsibilities. So, these are most likely to fall on your shoulders, just as making all the decisions in the marriage.
How your marriage turns out depends on many different factors and may have nothing to do with your Zodiac alignment. So take astrological advice with a grain of salt and trust your intuition.
