The idea that “opposites attract” in relationships isn’t always going to be true. In fact, it’s fairly common for couples to break up purely because they are unable to work through the differences that they have in the relationship. They might just be too different from the personalities that they end up being totally incompatible with one another.
And it’s always unfortunate whenever that’s the case. What most people don’t realize is that plenty of couples are forced to break up not because they don’t love each other anymore, but rather, they just aren’t able to overcome the issues in their relationship. And it’s always sad to hear two couples parting ways even if they are still in love with one another. However, love is only one part of the equation. More than love, couples really need to be compatible. There always has to be chemistry.
That’s where the Zodiac signs can really help you out. Sometimes, there are just certain Zodiac sign pairings that can make for very dysfunctional relationships just purely based on certain personality traits or characteristics that people might have. That’s why if you want to minimize the effects of incompatibility and dysfunctionality in a relationship, then you might want to avoid getting with someone who you are going to clash with.
If you want to know what kind of Zodiac pairings might not necessarily be built to last, then just continue to read on until the end of this article.
1. Aries (March 21 – April 19) and Cancer (June 22 – July 22)
The two of you would just never be able to make it work. As an Aries, you have a tendency to be very selfish while a Cancer is going to want to be coddled and cared for. At the end of the day, someone in the relationship is just always going to be receiving the short end of the stick.
2. Taurus (April 20 – May 21) and Leo (July 23 – August 22)
There is too much pride and stubbornness in this relationship in order for it to work. The Taurus and a Leo would butt heads way too frequently and no one would be humble enough to budge or yield. That’s what happens when two intense and passionate people spend too much time together.
3. Gemini (May 22 – June 21) and Virgo (August 23 – September 22)
You are just way too different from your personalities. The Virgo always wants order, predictability, and meticulousness. The Gemini is a wild card who rarely ever has a plan for anything in life. It would be hard for these two to ever come to an agreement on anything in life.
4. Cancer (June 22 – July 22) and Libra (September 23 – October 22)
This might seem like it’s a match made in heaven but in reality, it isn’t. Cancer is always going to want to take care of the people around them. The Libra is always going to want to make sure that everyone is happy. There is just too little selfishness in this relationship to the point that it will fail to develop its own identity.
5. Capricorn (December 22 – January 20) and Libra (September 23 – October 22)
The Capricorn is a sign that is completely no-nonsense. They are always working towards a goal or a dream of theirs. On the other side of the coin, a Libra is always looking to have a good time and enjoy other peoples’ company. It’s hard for these two signs to find meaning in a relationship with one another.
6. Scorpio (October 23 – November 22) and Aquarius (January 21 – February 18)
Scorpios are incredibly intense, passionate, and sensual. An Aquarius is analytical, unemotional, and intelligent. One leads with the heart while the other leads with the brain. See how this relationship just wouldn’t be able to work out? They just speak completely different languages when it comes to love.
7. Sagittarius (November 23 – December 21) and Pisces (February 19 – March 20)
A Sagittarius is known to be a very non-committal person who takes a very casual and nonchalant approach to romantic relationships. That might prove to be a problem for a Pisces who is very traditional with the way that they conduct themselves in the realms of love and romance. A Pisces would never be happy with a Sagittarius. And a Sagittarius would never be able to give a Pisces what they need in a relationship.
8. Aries (March 21 – April 19) and Capricorn (December 22 – January 20)
An Aries is a wild card who rarely ever thinks about the things that they do before they do it. A Capricorn is a very pragmatic Zodiac sign that always wants to make the right decision every single time. An Aries would be too much for a Capricorn to handle because of their impulsiveness and volatility.
