Yesterday morning, my mother sent me a link to an article in her local Albuquerque newspaper regarding the “5 Worst Astrological Pairings for Romance.”
While there are going to be ups and downs in any relationship, no matter the sun sign (we are, after all, more than a simple summation of our sun signs), I thought this article was pretty spot on in its analyses (we’ll forgive them for referring to Sandra Bullock as a Gemini, when she is in fact a Leo).
Their list for the 5 Worst Astrological Pairings:
Gemini and Aries
Geminis are known, first and foremost, for their moodiness and “split” personalities.Â Aries is prone to infidelity. Between Gemini not being thankful for what is in front of them and Aries getting easily irritated with Gemini’s mood swings, this is one match not always destined for forever.
Cancer and Aquarius
The homebody, couch-potato Cancer will grate on the up-and-on-the-go Aquarius, who will be looking for the next newest nightspot. The arguments will not end there, either, as drawn-in Caner prefers cuddling and sensitivity to Aquarius’ adventuresome sexuality and icy demeanor.
Scorpio and Leo
In this relationship, both the controlling Leo and possessive Scorpio want to retain control. This headbutting lends itself more to violent fights than passionate sparks in the bedroom. (Though if someone did have to win, having my Sun in Leo, my vote is for the lion; honestly, one swipe of those giant paws or one chew between sharp teeth, and the poor scorpion is no more.)
Virgo and Sagittarius
Free-spirited Sagittarius will find a difficult union with the stable Virgo. The fiery Sagittarius will often be pulled down by earthy, logical Virgo. More often than not, the only point of agreement will be that they will have to agree to disagree.
Pisces and Taurus
Opposites do attract, and in this case the opposites that have been attracted could not be more different. The watery Pisces can be impractical, which will annoy the stubborn Taurus, who feels they are right. All the time. Pisces’ indecisiveness versus Taurus’ determination will lead to ample frustration. According to Michelle Solomon, author of the article, “this is perhaps the most stressful love pairing in the entire zodiac.”
While not listed, my belief is that the Gemini-Virgo union is one of great instability (though that could just be my horrendously bad experience with an extremely two-faced and moody Gemini and the overwhelming Virgo Ascendant and Virgo moon in my chart ).
What do you think? Are these the worst pairings in astrology? Are you (or have you been) in such a romantic pairing? How did you fare?
