Whether you celebrate Valentine’s Day, palentine’s day, galentine’s day, or nothing at all on Feb. 14, there’s no denying the cosmic pull (and push) your sign has. This week we’re talking your most and least compatible signs!

Disclaimer: your compatibility with a certain sign has way more to do with the rest of your natal chart (especially your Mars and Venus signs) than your sun sign. Don’t run away from the potential love of your life just because they’re a Gemini and you’re a Pisces.

Look for your most compatible sign in red, and your least compatible sign in blue.

Aries, if you’re in the mood for a loving state of affairs, try pairing off with a Sagittarius, Leo, Gemini or Aquarius. Your feisty energy will be matched with fellow fire signs Sag and Leo, while Gemini and Aquarius’ free-spirited air sign energy will help bring out your creative side. However, you may want to stray away from Cancer. The mix of your impulsive nature and Cancer’s more reserved and protective style will rub you both the wrong way.

Taurus, your star-crossed lovers can be found in Cancer, Virgo, Capricorn or Pisces. Earth signs Capricorn and Virgo match your hardworking and dependable nature to a T, while Cancer and Pisces’ gentler energy can bring out the softer side of you. You won’t find such luck with Leo. Leo’s “all eyes on me” energy is a direct opposite of your laid-back, chill nature.

Gemini, your quick-thinking and passionate personality clicks well with Aries, Leo, Libra or Aquarius. Your fellow air signs will never run out of interesting conversation topics, while fire signs Aries and Leo will be attracted to your wit, and you to their ability to keep you on your toes. You may find Pisces less fulfilling. You’re very logical in thinking while Pisces rely heavily on intuition, and it will be difficult to find common ground.

Cancer, you thrive when you have stability and security, so Taurus, Virgo, Scorpio or Pisces are your home in relationships. Your fellow water signs will be able to meet you where you need them emotionally, while earth signs Taurus and Virgo will be the rock (pun intended) you can rely on. You won’t find that reliability in Aries. Their bold and blunt communication style causes friction with your need for a safe emotional space.

Leo, you’ve got an energy that can only be matched by Aries, Gemini, Libra or Sagittarius. Gemini and Libra are fantastic additions to a Leo’s social lifestyle, while Aries and Sag have a way of hyping you up and keeping you motivated that’s hard to find elsewhere. Keep a ten-foot pole between Leo and Taurus, though. The bull’s stubborn nature may leave you feeling like you’re being held back from your full potential, and they won’t enjoy being the center of attention like you.

Virgo, as one of the most detail-oriented and organized signs, you need energy to match and support you. That’s why Taurus, Cancer, Scorpio or Capricorn are your best matches. Your practicality matches that of Capricorn and Taurus, while Scorpio and Cancer are just as detail-oriented as you, but also willing to put in the work to make you open up emotionally. A Sagittarius is your relationship nightmare. Their spontaneity and whimsy will leave you feeling unorganized and completely out of control, whereas your attention to detail and need for order will have them feeling like they’re in a cage.

Libra, you’re easygoing and charming, so Gemini, Leo, Sagittarius or Aquarius will naturally be drawn to you, and you to them. Your fellow air signs can match your charisma like no other, and will keep you fully interested in the relationship. Fire signs Sag and Leo will keep your life exciting and push you to your limits in the best ways. However, Capricorn’s tendency to put work before relationships will make you feel like you’re always playing second fiddle to a paycheck.

Scorpio, your most compatible matches are Cancer, Virgo, Capricorn or Pisces. You’re known for your mystique and problem-solving, so your fellow water signs Pisces and Cancer will understand this (plus your emotional states) better than anyone else. The focus and drive of Capricorn and Virgo will empower you both to be the best versions of yourselves. Aquarius’ social butterfly and aloof nature just won’t click with your deeply sensitive and emotionally-rooted style.

Sagittarius, home is wherever Leo, Aries, Aquarius or Libra are for you. You need a partner who can keep up and make life interesting, that’s why you’ll find it easy to hit it off with fellow fire signs Aries and Leo. Air signs like Aquarius and Libra are easy-going and need as much freedom in their lives as you do, so you’ll get along like two peas in a pod. If you find yourself looking at a relationship with Virgo, you’ll end up feeling like you’re dragging around your own personal stick in the mud.

Capricorn, don’t waste your time with a sign that will make you feel perpetually distracted, like Libra. Instead, your energy would be better focused on Pisces, Scorpio, Virgo or Taurus. Your fellow earth signs are reliable and understand your need to be in touch with detail and your bottom line. Scorpio and Pisces will help you delve into your sensitive side and bring you in touch with your dreams and feelings.

Aquarius, Romeo and Juliet have nothing on you with Aries, Gemini, Libra or Sagittarius. You value your freedom highly, so fellow air signs Gemini and Libra are perfect to understand that need. Aries and Sag are just as open-minded as you are, but will still challenge your ideas and keep things interesting. Scorpio, on the other hand, will see your overly-social nature as an invasion of their private lifestyle, and it’s going to be hard to find common ground.

Pisces, earth and water are where you feel the most respected and nurtured. Scorpio, Taurus, Capricorn and Cancer will find harmony in your intuition and creativity, while also helping you keep your feet on the ground. Don’t get too comfortable with Gemini, though. You have a dreamy and sensitive personality style, and Gemini’s need for consistent logic and communication may feel too rigid for your taste.
