12 Lesbian Zodiac Signs by their Elements:
Air Signs: Gemini, Libra, Aquarius
Fire Signs: Aries, Leo, Sagittarius
Water Signs: Cancer, Scorpio, Pisces
Earth Signs: Taurus, Virgo, Capricorn
Lesbian Horoscope Compatibility:
Aries (March 21-April 19)If your crush is an Aries, you're likely to be attracted to women who are courageous, great leaders. Aries women are inspiring, assertive, enthusiastic, impatient and impulsive. An Aries woman can be forceful intense and passionate in a relationship, but she can also be domineering and possessive. She can sometimes love the chase more than the relationship and might not always finish what she has started. A word of warning - it can be very hard for her to settle down.
Lesbian Compatibility: Aries women can be passionate lovers but relationships with them seldom end well for women with Water and Earth signs.
Taurus (April 20-May 20)
Lesbian Compatibility: Taurus women do best with women with other Earth signs that are dependable and reliable.
Gemini (May 21-June 20)When it comes to the typical Gemini lesbian, she tends to be quick, adaptive, intelligent, curious, restless, exceptional at communication and intensely clever. There is a duality to her that can make relationships hard. She will want to be coddled and loved but also has an intense need for versatility that can make her walk away if things get boring. The challenge is to keep things interesting so that she will stay.
Lesbian Compatibility: Gemini women don’t do so well with Water and Earth signs, they are most comfortable in relationships with other Air signs, with Fiery signs coming in a strong second.
Cancer (June 21-July 22)Sympathetic, emotional, nurturing, tough on the outside but soft on the inside - that's the Cancer woman. She will seldom head straight towards what she wants, and can give mixed messages. She is cautious and shy but sensual once you are together. Her vulnerability might make her seem disinterested but if you earn her trust, she will let her guard down.
Lesbian Compatibility: Even though Cancer lesbians work best with other Water signs, many times the amount of emotions created between them can be overwhelming and ultimately drive them apart. Gemini and Leo women can draw Cancers in, but rarely work long term. Cancers do work well with Earth signs.
Leo (July 23-Aug 22)Like her namesake Lion, the Leo lesbian is self-assured, dramatic, generous, proud, ambitious, self-centered and overbearing. She adores the excitement of being in love. Loyal to a fault, she loves being the center of attention but can reciprocate in fawning over their partner.
Lesbian Compatibility: Leo women can be drawn to the passion and charms of Scorpios and Libras, but do best with other Fire signs.
Calm on the outside, but restless on the inside, that's a Virgo gal for you! She is also practical, analytical and organized. She wants to be of use to others but can be an extreme worrier and even misunderstood. She may sometimes be seen as cold or aloof but she just need the right person to trust. Once she does, she will give her all to a partner to please her.
Virgo (Aug 23 - Sept 22)
Lesbian Compatibility: Virgo lesbians have the best relationships with Earth signs, but can also have incredible connections with Scorpios and Pisces. Cancer women can bring out the deeper emotional sides in a Virgo but the combined vulnerabilities of these two signs can make it complicated.
Libra (Sept 23- Oct 22)What can you say about the Libra Lady? She's charming, social, indecisive but longs for balance, harmony, and justice. She may seem self-centered, but when she finds a woman who appreciates her for who she is, she can actually give away too much of her power just to please her partner.
Lesbian Compatibility: Libra lesbians have easy relationships with other Air signs. They are drawn to Aries but often gives too much to those partners to form a healthy relationship. They have the best relationships with Leos and Sagittarians.
Scorpio (Oct 23 - Nov 21)Seeking a Scorpio? Then you will find a lesbian who is intense, magnetic, emotional, passionate, deep, persistent, and determined. She can pull you in and seduce you before you know what hit you. She can cause complicated relationships because even though she can be loving, generous and loyal, she can also be controlling, manipulative and vengeful.
Lesbian Compatibility: Scorpio women have the best relationships with Water signs. Relationships with Earth signs can be beneficial but Scorpio lesbians are too complicated for many of the other Zodiac signs.
Sagittarius (Nov 22-Dec 21)Cheerful, independent, adventurous, inquiring, honest - that's a Sagittarius lesbian! She can be fun, passionate and exciting, but isn't great at commitment, at least not the long-term kind.
Lesbian Compatibility: Sagittarian women can have an amazing time with all signs but long-term connections happen best with other Fire signs. Air signs can sometimes keep up with Sagittarians whirlwind nature, but these women can actually drive Virgo, Scorpio and Taurus lesbians crazy.
Capricorn (Dec 22- Jan 19)Looking for someone ambitious, practical, patient, diligent, disciplined, and focused on wealth and success? Look for a Capricorn woman. She can intrigue you with her dry sense of humor, responsibility, and desire for stability and commitment over pleasure and romance. It might be challenging to break through her walls but if you do, she will protect you and stick with you till the end.
Lesbian Compatibility: Because of how cerebral Capricorn are, they need the emotional depth and support that Water signs offer, which is why they do better with these signs than any other. But grounded Earth signs can make great partners for Capricorn lesbians too.
Aquarius (Jan 20- Feb 18)What do you think of an Aquarius woman? How about that she's friendly, intelligent, visionary, a great communicator, idealistic, and eccentric. She has a fierce need for independence which can make relationships challenging. She tends to devote herself to big picture issues in the world, which can also keep her from focusing on relationships. If this kind of lesbian opens her heart to you, she will be a unique find!
Lesbian Compatibility: Aquarian women work best with all the Air signs, but also find occasional happiness with Fire signs.
Pisces (Feb 19 - March 20)The Pisces woman is compassionate, intuitive, adaptable, understanding, sensitive, impractical, creative and spiritual. She searches for deep soul connections and can be disappointed by common love. She can have an addictive personality and can throw herself so deeply into a relationship that it becomes unhealthy. It is important for Pisces lesbians to be careful, because of their nature, it is easy for them to be taken advantage of.
Lesbian Compatibility: The Pisces lesbian does especially well with other Water signs but Earth signs are the safest for them.
Lesbian relationships can be wonderful and messy just like any other relationship. But knowing your sign’s compatibility can help lead to the most optimal pairings.
