The magic and mystery of love – Love compatibility between Zodiac signs

By Rox Jewellers

LOOK AT THE STARS, LOOK HOW THEY SHINE FOR YOU…

History is peppered with star-crossed lovers whose tales offer endless inspiration – think of Grace Kelly and Prince Rainier III, Wills and Kate, or even Kim and Kanye. But just what does it take to create a match made in heaven of your own?

We’ve looked to the stars in search of our romantic destiny since ancient times, hoping to find some insight into our best matches. In fact, astrology continues to grow in popularity as an increasing amount of millennials are turning to the skies for answers.

Traditionally, many techniques can be used to calculate compatibility between couples, including synastry charts, which take into account planet positions of both partners and show their mutual aspects. However, despite having access to these often complex and rigorous processes, even the most seasoned of astrologers often evaluate compatibility based on sun sign alone.

So, how exactly does it work? Determined by your date of birth, your sun sign represents your core personality. The elements play a key role in finding the perfect match, and whether yours is earth, water, air or fire, you’re always best matched with someone of the same element.

Another option is to consider your opposite sign – the one that occurs during your half birthday. While some pairings might seem a little odd, the counterbalance within these pairs can be a winning combination.

While the secrets of the stars can help you avoid potentially toxic relationships, there’s no single astrological trick to calculate incompatibility. Love can be thrilling and scary in equal measure and it’s important to embrace it in all of its glory… But for those looking for a little cosmic intervention, we’re shining a light on the best potential matches.

ARIES


ROX - Written in the Stars - AriesMarch 21 – April 19

Element: Fire
Gemstone: Diamond
Spirit colour: Red
Traits: Ambitious, independent, eager, impatient, dynamic and competitive
Top love matches: Leo, Sagittarius and Libra

Known for their fiery, impulsive natures, Aries have an insatiable desire to be the best and need a partner that can handle their enthusiasm and strong character. Aries are unstoppable warriors on the good days, but can be prone to temper tantrums on the bad ones, so being with this fiery ram isn’t for the faint-hearted. Fellow fire signs Leo and Sagittarius make for good matches, bringing a creative energy and determination to the relationship, as inspired by Aries’ passion and zest for life. An Aries and Libra partnership is also worth exploring, with these opposite signs providing much-needed counterbalance to support each other’s best qualities.

Cancer and Capricorns aren’t the best match for Aries, and can struggle to manage their spontaneous energy. Aries, on the other hand, may feel a sense of being boxed in by these signs.

Perfect engagement ring:
Not afraid to wear their heart on their sleeve, Aries need an engagement ring that captures their love and fearless personality. Think a big, platinum radiant cut diamond engagement ring with plenty of sparkle.

 

TAURUS


ROX - Written in the Stars - Taurus
April 20 – May 20

Element: Earth
Gemstone: Emerald
Spirit colour: Pink
Traits: Strong, practical, dependable, romantic, sensual and creative
Top love matches: Cancer, Capricorn and Virgo

Known for their sense of romance and appreciation for the finer things in life, Taurus is an earth sign with a tendency to indulge the senses – from enchanting aromas and gourmet cuisine, to luxurious, soft fabrics. Taurus is a pragmatic sign, making practical Virgo and hardworking Capricorn great matches who’ll appreciate the sensual bull’s love of luxury. Opposite sign Scorpio is also a good match for Taurus: both are associated with change and regeneration (represented by spring and autumn) and can share valuable lessons about transformation when matched.

Like the bull that represents them, Taureans can be stubborn and hard-headed, and could lock horns with fellow unyielding signs Leo or Aquarius.

Perfect engagement ring:
Taurus likes to stand out from the crowd. An Art Deco-inspired platinum emerald cut design masters the art of capturing the unique style of Taurus whilst exuding timeless luxury.

 

GEMINI


ROX - Written in the Stars - Gemini

Element: Air
Gemstone: Emerald, tiger’s eye
Spirit colour: Yellow
Traits: Versatile, passionate, dynamic, expressive, curious and kind
Top love matches: Libra, Aquarius and Sagittarius

Known to be social butterflies, dating a Gemini promises to be a fun-filled experience. Always on the look-out for their next adventure, Geminis need constant stimulation through daily activities and communication. Fellow natural wordsmiths Libra and Aquarius are attracted to Gemini’s quick wit. However, for this sign opposites really do attract, with creative wanderers Gemini and Sagittarius making one of best pairings of the Zodiac.

Logical signs such as Virgo and intuitive Pisces may struggle with Gemini’s spontaneity, earning the sign a reputation of being unreliable.

Perfect engagement ring:
Geminis are celebrated for their forward-thinking style, so their perfect engagement ring is naturally one of the biggest trends of the season – a glistening oval cut diamond.

CANCER

ROX - Written in the Stars - Cancer


June 21 – July 22

Element: Water
Gemstone: Ruby, pearl
Spirit colour: Violet
Traits: Intuitive, sentimental, compassionate and protective
Top love matches: Scorpio, Pisces and Capricorn

A water sign ruled by the moon, Cancer is a sensitive sign and needs to establish trust and loyalty before unveiling vulnerabilities. As such, fellow water signs Scorpio and Pisces make for great matches, with water signs known for their intuition. Paired together they can communicate nonverbally, creating a real sense of intimacy. In spite of being a less emotional sign, Capricorn also makes a great living partner for Cancer as both signs enjoy nesting and building safe spaces.

Cancers struggle with direct confrontation and are known to side-step around difficult situations, so outspoken Aries and diplomatic Libra can prove a difficult match.

Perfect engagement ring:
Cancers are known to wear their heart on their sleeves, so a fancy cut diamond captures their personality and emotional openness. Capture classic romance with a platinum pear cut diamond engagement ring.

LEO


ROX - Written in the Stars - Leo

July 23 – August 22

Element: Fire
Gemstone: Carnelian
Spirit colour: Gold
Traits: Proud, outgoing, bold, ambitious and self-assured
Top love matches: Aries and Sagittarius

Fiercely proud of their passion and extravagance, fiery Leos aren’t afraid to show their true colours. Known for their unbelievable loyalty, enterprising creativity and movie-esque romances, this is a sign that’s ruled by the sun and Leos shine brightest when matched with fellow fire signs Aries or Sagittarius. Opposite sign Aquarius also makes a good match for Leo; while Leo represents the ruler, Aquarius symbolises the

people, creating the ultimate power couple.

Leo’s passion and charisma can come across as being self-centredness, which may cause trouble when paired with a Taurus or Scorpio.

Perfect engagement ring:
As the leader of the pack, a dramatic engagement ring is a must for a Leo. Looking for a ring that leaves an impression, a Leo wants a design that really catches the eye. More is more for this sign. Opt for a Crisscut trilogy design to capture the best of Leo’s personality.

VIRGO


”ROX

August 23 – September 22

Element: Earth
Gemstone: Peridot
Spirit colour: Silver
Traits: Graceful, organized and kind
Top love matches: Capricorn, Taurus and Pisces

Logical, rational and to-the-point earth sign Virgos are known for their intellect. Their a-type personality means they take a pragmatic approach to life and feel most at ease when with other earth signs Capricorn and Taurus, who appreciate Virgo’s analytical eye. Opposite sign Pisces also makes for a great match, with both signs known for their helpful natures – Virgo offers practical assistance while Pisces offers emotional support.

However, a Virgo’s quest for perfection can be too much for impulsive Gemini or wandering Sagittarius and can come across as being a little neurotic.

Perfect engagement ring:
Tradition and practical style are important to Virgo. Romantic diamond set engagement rings capture Virgo’s passion for life’s prettiest things whilst being practical. A classic brilliant cut diamond promises to be the perfect choice for a dazzling yet understated effect.

LIBRA

September 23 – October 22

Element: Air
Gemstone: Sapphire
Spirit colour: Blue
Traits: Diplomatic, artistic and intelligent
Top love matches: Gemini, Aquarius & Aries

With a passion for culture and the finer things in life, whether it be modern art, a deep glass of the finest red, or the latest designer threads, Libras are the aesthetes of the Zodiac. Ideal matches include fellow air signs Gemini and Aquarius who appreciate Libra’s refined tastes. Represented by the scales, it’s natural that Libras love being in pairs which makes Aries a compatible match. Aries may be known for their independence but when paired with a Libra, they can find the ultimate balance – just look at the infamous duo Bonnie and Clyde.

Libras can get caught up in pleasing others, making it difficult to pair with intense Cancers or Capricorns.

Perfect engagement ring:
Known for diplomacy, a Libra needs an engagement ring that captures their balanced personality. They also love classic glitz and glamour, making a platinum solitaire princess cut diamond the perfect engagement ring choice. Opting for a solitaire stone masters the art of looking opulent without being over the top.

October 23 – November 21

Powerful water sign Scorpio is known as one of the fiercest in the Zodiac. Armed with unbelievable intuition and relentless dedication, it’s hardly surprising that Scorpios make loyal partners. Known for their emotional intelligence, fellow water signs Cancer and Pisces are only too happy to embrace Scorpio’s passionate energies. Taurus, regarded as the most sensual sign of the zodiac, also makes a great match to Scorpio’s magnetic sexuality.

However, Scorpios can also seem evasive which might put off signs like Leo and Aquarius.

Perfect engagement ring:
Scorpios aren’t afraid to do things their own way and engagement rings are no exception. Eternally chic, a mysterious marquise cut diamond captures a Scorpio’s infinite passion and their alluring personality..

”ROX

November 22 – December 21

Element: Fire
Gemstone: Topaz
Spirit colour: Light blue
Traits: Extraverted, optimistic, funny and generous
Top love matches: Leo, Aries and Gemini

Always ready for an adventure, Sagittarius is a fire sign known for captivating storytelling and having an infectious sense of humour. Complemented by fellow bold and daring signs Aries and Leo, a match with either would bring a relationship filled with passion and creativity. Opposite sign Gemini also makes a great partner for intrepid Sagittarius, with both believing in living their best lives at all times, never afraid to support each other along the way.

As Sagittarius is always chasing the arrow, this sign can have a reputation of being unreliable which doesn’t sit well with logical Virgos and sentimental Pisces.

Perfect engagement ring:
Standing out from the crowd comes naturally to Sagittarius so an engagement ring that captures this forward-thinking personality is a must. A glistening round cut halo diamond makes for the perfect choice to show off the courageous style of this sign.

Top love matches: Taurus, Virgo and Cancer

Capricorns are known to create solid foundations in their lives, whether it be for their homes, careers or romantic relationships. Fellow earth signs Taurus and Virgo crave stability, something which Capricorns offer in abundance, making the two a dream match. Capricorns also share traditional views on romance with opposite sign Cancer, who also enjoys building safe domestic environments.

However, Capricorn’s fastidious approach to life isn’t always sought-after, with Aries and Libra often becoming frustrated by Capricorn’s stoicism.

Perfect engagement ring:
Capricorns appreciate understated style and aren’t really known to be big risk takers. With that in mind, an eternally beautiful round brilliant cut solitaire diamond engagement ring is guaranteed to enchant for a lifetime.

As an air sign, Aquarius is strongly linked to humanitarianism, with Aquarians known to proudly do their part to help others. Fellow air signs Gemini and Libra appreciate the Aquarian ability to look at the bigger picture, while Aquarians appreciate Gemini and Libra’s intellectualism. Aquarians and Leos also make a good match, with Leo representing the king and Aquarius representing the people.

Ever the idealist, Aquarians can sometimes come across as righteous, causing Taurus and Scorpio to feel a little attacked, which can make matches between these signs less likely.

Perfect engagement ring:
Aquarians are known to think outside of the box and it’s important for their engagement ring to capture that. Proud to always go that little bit further, a Crisscut diamond halo ring guarantees to celebrate an Aquarian’s ‘more is more’ attitude.

However, easily wounded Pisces can struggle to bond with extroverted Sagittarius and Gemini.

Perfect engagement ring:
Capture the gentle soul of Pisces with a round diamond halo engagement ring. A beautifully soft design will complement their sensitive personality.
