12 Zodiac signs that make DISASTROUS couples if paired up

They say that matches are made in heaven but then why, at times, apparently heaven-made matches turn out to be absolute disasters? What can go wrong in a fairytale romance that turns it into an episode of crime patrol’? Well, more than habits and mismatches, it’s the fault of our stars.

Well, as cliche as it might sound, but stars do have a role in governing our everyday personalities. Astrology has always been a fascinating field that has, on many occasions, provided an insight into stories that could not have been comprehensible in any other way.

It is the patterns that matter. Behavioral patterns over the years have been exclusive to horoscopes. Understanding the vital forces of the universe that surround us will surely help us better understand ourselves and our people.

Astrology has preset compatibility standards among the different stars. In some cultures, these standards are taken into account with religious devotion at matchmaking, and hence they have lesser divorce rates. It will be miserable to waste time and emotions building up a wrong astrological match that ultimately leaves you in despair.

So it is better to understand pre-handedly the nature of your zodiac sign and the kind of partner that will suit you. Knowledge is indeed power, and specifically, an astrological education will help you score the best in a short period. To guide you through the astrological incompatibilities and incompatibilities given below are 12 astrological mismatches to watch out for!

12. Lion and the Virgin (Leo and Virgo):

Leo and Virgo fall at complete opposite poles in the horoscopic sequence of nature. Both the stars possess extremely opposite natures and their bringing together is nothing but a call for ultimate doom. Leos prefer glamour. The charm and highlights of the glamorous world out there keep them captivated. They daydream a lot and live less in reality.

Virgos, on the other hand, as compared to Leos, are introverts. Where Leos prefer to party all night, Virgos desire a small intimate social circle with less attention. Leos prefer the center stage while Virgos are better backstage. Here are

Madonna (Leo) and Guy Ritchie (Virgo) are famous examples of such a disaster where the two of them stayed married for eight years before divorcing in 2008. The Queen of Pop declared that her successful director husband lacked empathy and sensitivity. Jennifer Lopez is another Leo who has made similar mistakes twice. Both her marriages fell apart severely.

The only way such a relationship can work is if Leo guarantees that their Virgo partner does not feel left out at any point. Their feelings are taken into consideration equally.

11. Fire and Water (Aries and Scorpio):

When Scorpios marry Aries, it rarely works. It’s simple math that goes against them. Their union is like that of water and fire, intense and passionate but ultimately, both put each other out. Both the stars are strong-headed and stubborn by nature when not making out in the bedroom, and they make showdowns with ultimatums happen. Scorpios have a vital element of jealousy, and Aries, by nature, is bubbly and flirty, which severely puts a Scorpio off and makes them lose their cool.

They make the sort of couples who apparently look happy but, inside, the premises of their bedroom are each other’s arch-nemeses. If you’re planning on dating a Scorpio, then you should know the .

They will argue in cars, on bus stands, in shopping malls, at home, everywhere as long as they get a chance to keep up the appearance of a happy couple later on. Both of them are fierce fighters and do not accept defeat easily.

A famous example of such a disaster is Meg Ryan and her ex, Aries actor Dennis Quaid, who married in 1991 and divorced Ten years later. Quaid had accused Meg of cheating, and the relationship went down in shreds. The only way to save an all-Aries-Scorpio couple compromises. Survival is their only option because they cannot fully live with each other’s jarred edges. One or both of them has to compromise to keep a relationship going continuously.

10. Venus and Uranus (Taurus and Aquarius):

Venus governs Taurus and Uranus governs Aquarius. One is the bull, while the other is the water bearer. One jumps into the water, and the other drowns in it. Venus, the planet of Romance, love, beauty, and calm can never sit in harmony with Uranus, which symbolizes the unexpected, and is the rebel planet.

The most significant lacking factor in such relationships is ˜communication’. The lack of communication leads to a lack of coordination and hence compatibility. Aquarius refuses to take talks head-on, while a Taurus is always pushy about arguments and conversations. Every time a Taurus brings up a controversy, You can also read another piece on

The Aquarius refuses to entertain it, and hence they fight. The lack of communication leads to misunderstandings, doubts, and suspicions, ultimately drifting both partners away. Uma Thurman, a strong-willed, stubborn, and confident Taurus, had a difficult time when, in 2014, her ex- Arpad Arki Busson,

(an Aquarius), pressed charges against her over the custody of their baby daughter, Luna. A lengthy legal battle was pursued, which made both the ex-partners lose emotionally and financially until a legal agreement was finally made between the two, but the damage was already done.

This would not have been easy Taurus-Aquarius matches are opposites; hence, none of the two is willing to step back. Such a couple can only make it if they learn how to communicate appropriately and with dignity.

9. The Mutable and the Cardinal (Gemini and Cancer):

Gemini, governed by Mercury, and Cancer, governed by the moon, has very little common ground. A Gemini-Cancer union will mean two opposite poles brought together. Their biggest drawback is the lack of anything in common. Such a combo of two people is just not meant to be. Being air and water, both are restless and suffer severe bouts of frustrations and mood swings. Therefore, they have a very high tendency of irritating and shutting each other off.

They will compete like arch-nemeses and set all the blame on the other and leave none for themselves. They, by nature, have very different ambitions, aims, and priorities. Cancerians prefer a quite well-settled lifestyle, whereas Gemini has a tinge of worldly attraction. Also read, .

They always prefer to be in motion. Such a heavy contrast is nothing but a call for destruction. Gemini Cancer matches are a terrible idea. One such example of a bad idea is Tom Cruise and Nicole Kidman. Cruise, being a Cancerian, preferred the quiet lifestyle, whereas Nicole Kidman, being a Gemini, preferred to be more in the world.

The pair managed it for 11 years together but ultimately fell apart. One plus of such a couple is the excellent sense of humor they both have, but there are matters more important than a good laugh at the end of the day.

If only Gemini had more patience with Cancer and was willing to cooperate in helping them tackle their insecurities. If only Cancer could provide the loving security that Gemini craves, this relationship could work out, but seldom is such a case.

8. The Goat and the Archer (Sagittarius and Capricorn):

The goat and the archer together are again a big mistake. Both partners will have to be practically forced to continue to make such a duo work because the tension between these two stars is too much to handle willingly. Both the stars lack sexual chemistry, and the life inside the bedroom is doomed.

The stars since always have been against the making of such a couple, and time stands witness to several disasters involving these two stars. Read

One such example is Capricorn Ava Gardner and Sagittarius Frank Sinatra; They somehow managed six years of marriage, of which they were only two years together and the rest, separated. Even this long time in a relationship is a miracle for them.

Capricorn and Sagittarius is a doomed astrological match. Gardner cheated on Sinatra as she slept with actor Robert Mitchum. Capricorn and Sagittarius lack the spark together and hence are a terrible idea.

7. The Virgin and the Twins (Virgo and Gemini):

While the Virgin is calm, the twins are dynamic and vicious, and they have very little or almost no common ground. The lack of mutual interests leads them to be one of the worst stars to be placed together in a duo. They will often have nothing to talk about. The monotony will kill them. They are destined to bore each other to death.

The twins are mischievous while the Virgin is clever, and hence in a game, neither succeeds. A Virgo Gemini disaster is Courtney Cox (Virgo) and her ex David Arquette (Gemini). Their split was just a matter of time as Virgos are known to work very hard and stress a lot about what they do. Here are .

Deadlines are not their thing, and they bring their worries home from work, whereas a Gemini, on the other hand, takes a more passive and relaxed approach and gets irritated when they see their partner stressed about something they consider nothing.

Financial issues also dominate this relationship. Geminis love to spend and spend like kings. They love outings and spending sprees, whereas Virgos prefer to save for rainy days. This contrast does not allow them to be on the same page. Financial issues eventually weigh them down and leave their relationship in shreds. The only thing that can come out of such a relationship is hurt and more hurt.

6. The Fish and the Lion (Pisces and Leo):

Pisces being water and Leo being fire is bound to be the death of each other. It is a very imbalanced and uneven match. The relationship does not have a lot of space to grow in, and hence it grows apart. Such a duo can be pretty frustrating and irritable.

A Leo will demand attention, while the Pisces are generally too self-centered and wrapped in their thoughts to pay that level of attention to anyone. One such example of a care-demanding Leo is Selena Gomez. Like every Leo you will ever come across, she too does not like to feel like an afterthought. It is a central problem factor in their relationships. Also read,

The start of such a combo will be a fairytale. They will be swept off of their feet. But Romance is not everything. When the initial phase fades, and it is the time for a long-term commitment, Pisces and Leos fail together. They eventually start to see the incompatibility factor between them and slowly grow weary of trying to cope with each other.

Pisces are known to shun the motivation, creativity, and enthusiasm of a Leo. Leo demands worship, and Pisces never truly cares enough to submit.

Such a relationship is a nightmare and eventually, at some point, calls quit. The only way such relationships can somehow survive is when the partners together make their needs very clear to each other right from the start. Otherwise, there is nothing but frustration in such a case.

5. Mercury and Pluto (Gemini and Scorpio):

The most significant setback of such a couple is the lack of quality time spent together. Initially, they will experience intense sexual energy, but eventually, it will fade into a haze of frustration. One such example is the Scorpio Katy Perry and Gemini Russell Brand, who walked down the aisle together just after one year of dating, only to be divorced two years later. Also, read our separate article for Geminies: .

Both the stars are too extroverted for their excellence. They are easily pulled into doubts about each other and cannot handle time apart easily. The Scorpio in the couple tends to be almost too open, which sets the Gemini off and scares them into their shell.

4. The Water Bearer and the Crab (Aquarius and Cancer):

The crab represents cancer because they are too clingy for their good and their partners. Once they dig their nails in you, it’s almost impossible to distance yourself, and you ultimately start feeling suffocated. This clingy nature of Cancer contrasts with the free-thinking, easy-going, and loves to be out in the evening nature, governed by the water sign of Aquarius.

It’s a call for an absolute disaster. Lindsay Lohan and Wilmer Valderrama are an example of such a disaster. The clingy-cancer nature of Lohan has proven that she just won’t let go. The couple was last seen together in 2014 “ten years since their break-up. Also read, .

An Aquarius wants the kind of freedom and liberation in a relationship that Cancer will never allow. Cancer needs to feel safe, protected, in possession, and secure. Hence they don’t like their partners owning a separate space and distancing themselves from them. The lack of mutual trust never really allows such a duo to work.

3. The Scales and the Fish (Libra and Pisces):

Venus governs libra, and Pisces by Neptune never works out well. Initially, their relationship seems to be very optimistic and good going even to them. Still, eventually, when the times no longer remain smooth, and the going gets tough, they cannot cope with the pressure of reality together and tend to ignore it.

They prefer waiting and seeing the problem escalate to the extremes rather than facing it and solving it together. They dig the grave of their relationship without even realizing the intensity of their actions. Also, read

One such example is Libra Gwyneth Paltrow and Pisces Chris Martin, who consciously uncoupled after 12 years of marriage as they would frequently turn their faces away from each other, and ultimately it had to end.

2. Fire and Earth (Leo and Taurus):

Leo and Taurus together is a bad idea. They are not meant to be. Their union is not favored at all by the stars, and their contrasting natures approve. Both of them are very demanding and have high expectations which are far from reality. They drain each other every day physically and emotionally. You can also read another piece on

They are constant attention seekers and get very irritating towards each other’s demands of affection and care. They both have formidable egos and a strong sense of pride that does not let any of both compromises. Mick and Bianca Jagger suffered a similar fate. They failed to make a Leo-Taurus union work. Such relationships look perfect from the outside but, in reality, are far from it.

1. The Ram and the Crab (Aries and Cancer):

An Aries and Cancer form a great team as long as the relationship is severely platonic and emotions do not come into play. Emotions turn into an inevitable disaster. Aries have wanderlust and crave long travels, whereas a Cancer prefers quite settled lifestyle. They contradict a lot with each other and are never really on the same page.

An Aries will always find their Cancer partner to be way more sensitive, emotional, and moody than required, whereas a Cancer will find Aries too impulsive, insensitive, indifferent, and uncaring. They will never find faults in themselves but always in each other.

They do not know how to apologize. Actress Jennifer Garner and actor Scott Foley are an example of a failed Aries/Cancer match. They could only manage to survive four years of marriage together, yet it was considered a miracle. Have a look at one of the most read articles on how to love an Aries.

Does this resonate with you? Let me know in the comments below!

  1. Aries and cancer can work if they listen to one another and communicate. Gregory and I have been together for 5 years and enjoy each other.

      1. I am a Sagittarius and my hubby is a Taurus . We are highschool sweet hearts.We have been together going on 18 yrs now,married for 13 yrs of that. Not the easiest but it takes a lot of communication and patience . I think if 2 people love each other and genuinely want to be with each other then they’ll do what it takes to make the relationship work.

  2. I’m a Leo woman married to a Taurus man. We’ve been married for going on 7 years now. I love my Taurus and he loves me. We were made for each other, we can almost finish each others sentence. Even our food choices are similar. Just goes to show these things aren’t always right.

  3. This makes alot of sense… not in my romantic relationship, but me and my sister(I’m Virgo she’s the Leo) she would always say that virgos, (looking at me me) are always “me Me…ME!”…. but in reality, it was because she wanted all the attention. Because I never understood why she always said that… I prefer to be the helper in the shadows… I hate the spotlight.
