The Chinese zodiac signs are more than just symbols. They have cosmic groups that can be paired up and noted for their compatibility. Compatible zodiac signs have a lot to do with the four elements. Each zodiac falls under an element and share some common characteristics with its brethren. Using common and unique characteristics of each sign, compatibility between two signs can be determined.
The four elements are the earth, fire, air and water. Earth signs include Taurus, Virgo and Capricorn. Those under this element are highly ambitious and are gifted with the ability to make their dreams come true. They are determined and are great planners.
The fire element has Aries, Sagittarius and Leo under it. Persons under these signs are people-lovers. They love attention, are very warm and full of life. They are even more energized when exchanging ideas with other people.
The zodiacs under the element of air are Gemini, Libra and Aquarius. These signs are very intelligible. They love facts, figures and details. They are natural communicators in the group that is why they build lasting relationships.
The water signs are Cancer, Scorpio and Pisces. They are compassionate and are have honed emotional skills. Their instincts are always on the go and they have the ability to sense things that are not of the physical world.
Compatible zodiac signs are based on these groupings.
Earth signs are most compatible with both earth and water signs. Earth and fire often do not make a great pair since earth signs can dampen the spirit of a fire sign. Earth and air can try to make things work but will not usually last a long time.
Some compatible zodiac signs for those under the earth element are:
• Taurus – Capricorn, Cancer, Virgo, Pisces
• Virgo – Capricorn, Cancer, Scorpio, Taurus
• Capricorn – Taurus, Scorpio, Virgo, Pisces
Fire signs go best with fire and air. A relationship with earth signs need extra effort to make it work while it is better to stay clear of water signs. Water signs will tend to be too emotional and may suffocate the relationship with a fire zodiac.

• Aries – Sagittarius, Gemini, Aquarius, Leo
• Sagittarius – Libra, Aries, Aquarius, Leo
• Leo – Aries, Libra, Gemini, Sagittarius

• Libra – Sagittarius, Gemini, Aquarius, Leo
• Aquarius – Aries, Libra, Gemini, Sagittarius
