Once you get to know your own Sun sign and full chart well, you will probably want to know how your energy relates to the energy of other people in your life. The simplest and most straightforward technique compares one Zodiac sign with all the other Zodiac signs to understand and measure compatibility. Keep in mind that every point in the sky is in a particular sign at the time of birth. While your Sun may be in Aries, your Moon might be in Capricorn. As you delve deeper into the compatibility question, you will want to compare full charts, not just Sun signs.
Zodiac Sign Compatibility
Let us start with just the signs and how they interact based on their qualities. Every sign has an element and a modality. Aries is a fire sign; and its “mode” is cardinal, which initiates. Taurus, the next sign, is ruled by the element of earth; and its “mode” is fixed, which establishes. Certain elements and modes work well and easily together, while others struggle and challenge one another. Below is an excellent image that maps out compatibility among the signs.
Aries is a fire sign. Aries is the sign for new beginnings, independence, maverick action, and pioneering. Often known as “the warrior” or “the risk-taker”, Aries connects to the world through its boundless energy to explore, play, compete, and initiate. This sign rules survival, the ego, and the self.
As the ruler of the 1st House, its energy oversees identity, personality, and perceptions. Someone with an Aries Sun, Moon, or Ascendant (but especially the Sun) will seek to chart their own path as a role model for the world, humankind, and all of life; by being who they need to be, they encourage others to be themselves, authentically.
Aries is most compatible with the other fire signs: Leo and Sagittarius; and is one of the few signs that matches well itself.
Taurus is an earth sign. Taurus is the sign for traditions, security, stability, and personal finances. Often known as “the farmer” or “the settler”, Taurus connects to the world through hard work, consistency, connections to the land, and the practical foundations of society. This sign rules needs and resources.
As the ruler of the 2 nd House, its energy oversees money, the home, savings, and daily life matters. Someone with a Taurus Sun, Moon, or Ascendant (but especially the Sun) will seek to establish himself or herself in pragmatic and enduring ways; by being who they need to be, they help others feel stable and safe.
Taurus is most compatible with the other earth signs: Virgo and Capricorn; and it matches well with Libra because Venus rules Taurus and Libra.

This sign rules data and information, and how it is shared through the network of communication.
As the ruler of the 3 rd House, its energy oversees friendships, siblings, local travel, and daily interactions. Someone with a Gemini Sun, Moon, or Ascendant (but especially the Sun) will seek to learn about himself or herself and everyone around them. By being who they need to be, they help others connect, communicate, and understand one another.
Gemini is most compatible with the other air signs: Aquarius and Libra; and it matches well with Leo because they can be very creative together and have a lot similar to tinder of fun.
