One of the most common questions a person asks when they explore the subject of astrology is which zodiac sign is most compatible with their own. More often than not, the reason they ask is because there is something wrong in their current relationship and they want to know how to fix the problem or if it’s a hopeless situation.
It’s sad when people feel stuck in a relationship with a person their heart loves but their mind knows isn’t good enough for them, or worse, bad all around for their life.
It’s a tough relationship, an unhappy marriage, unrequited love. It doesn’t have to BE that way, but when you’re in the situation it’s difficult to see a way out. If you’ve been together for years, and you wonder if you can make it another few years, then searching into horoscope personality traits and astrology may seem to provide some hope. But, sometimes it doesn’t. Sorry.
A tale as old as time: a woman falls for a man who isn’t compatible or good for her. She may recognize this, or not, but either way she sticks it out because she’s in love, and that’s what matters, right?
No matter how you slice it, forcing yourself to move on once you’ve fallen in love is a tough thing for anyone to do. Being incompatible can refer to zodiac signs, life goals, or personalities.
However; there are different reasons behind why we cling to these feelings, especially when we turn to your horoscope’s astrology for an explanation. Each sign has a different motivation for hanging onto the hope of love when it’s clear it won’t work out.
Here’s why you still love him even though he isn’t compatible, according to astrology, by zodiac sign.
ARIES (March 21 – April 19)
Not only will Aries find themselves competitively living life, but they will be competitive in love, always striving to have the best and strongest relationship. They will love him even though he is incompatible because they are determined to make it work, and enthusiastic about the chance to do so. Aries will live and love passionately, determined to show the world how it’s done.
TAURUS (April 20 – May 20)
If you’re a Taurus, you’re known for being stubborn and uncompromising. When you latch onto something, you stick to it. You’re dedicated and overprotective, especially when it comes to the things you care about. He’s one of them. He may not love you back, but that doesn’t mean your feelings are going to change any time soon.
GEMINI (May 21 – June 20)
Gemini’s are serious about the people they spend time with. Although sociable and affectionate, a deep connection can be hard for Gemini because they tend to be indecisive and restless. However, once that bond is formed, and a Gemini falls in love, it will be tough for them to let go because they are naturally affectionate and caring.
CANCER (June 21 – July 22)
Cancers are notoriously emotional and sentimental. If you are a Cancer, your emotions run deeply, and you easily become attached to the people around you. He is no exception. You love him because you can’t help but love him. It’s a part of your very nature!
LEO (July 23 – August 22)
Leo, when you love, you love big. As a natural born leader, you’re used to being a respected problem solver and someone that others may lean on when they need support. However, when you let someone get emotionally close to you, or they find a way to break down your armor, they’ll have your whole heart as reward. You love him because he wormed a way into your heart and now you’re stuck with it.
VIRGO (August 23 – September 22)
As a Virgo, I feel very qualified to say that a huge part of the reason we fall in love and stay in love is all the little things. We analyze the heck out of every interaction, every gesture, every intimate moment. We see the best little qualities in the people we love, and fall for little moments that we don’t know how to let go of when it’s time to move on. We love him even when he’s incompatible because he does all the little things you dream someone would do for you, and you just can’t let that go. Loyal to a fault, you’ll find Virgo loving someone long after the moment has passed, it’s who they are!
LIBRA (September 23 – October 22)
Libras are social creatures; they hate to be alone. Gentle and peaceful, they enjoy coexisting with others in a positive way. Libras will love him even if he’s incompatible because they aren’t ready to confront the issue, or aren’t ready to decide that they are in fact incompatible.
SCORPIO (October 23 – November 21)
Scorpios live to experience and express emotions, living a vibrantly passionate life based off of their feelings. Although Scorpio’s have a tendency to be suspicious and jealous, they also live in a state of intense vulnerability in regards to their emotions. Passive isn’t an option. Scorpios will love him when they shouldn’t because they are addicted to the feeling of love, and don’t want to lose him, even if it’s toxic.
SAGITTARIUS (November 22 – December 21)
Sagittarius, ever the optimistic and the enthusiastic, will love them because of their ideals. They trust him to a fault, always ignoring his bad side, and choosing to focus on his best self. Love is always blind, but for Sagittarius, this is on a new level. They’ll love him despite him being incompatible because they chose to believe there is a chance.
CAPRICORN (December 22 – January 19)
Capricorn is the sign most naturally oriented towards family. He represents the chance at a family, the promise of a family, the reality of a family. Because of this, Capricorn will do their best to make it work. They are serious about commitment and will do their best to responsibly make it work despite the fact that he is incompatible.
AQUARIUS (January 20 – February 18)
Aquarius naturally likes to be alone, finding solitude to be a chance to enjoy their intellect in peace. If an Aquarius takes the time to spend time with him despite this, there is a good chance there’s a love connection. Aquarius will love him even though he’s incompatible because he offers a break from the intellect they love. Somehow, he brightens up their life with spontaneous adventure, and Aquarius can’t help but find that appealing despite trying to remain aloof. He may not be compatible, but the heart wants what the heart wants.
PISCES (February 19 – March 20)
Pisces is known to be wise and yet emotional, striking a balance between logic and the arts. If you are a Pisces, you find yourself dreaming of glamorous romance despite your tendency to enjoy your alone time. Pisces will love him because they enjoy the chase: and they enjoy the connection they make with another human being. He may be incompatible, but Pisces will be too invested in the idea of romance to pull back.
