Looking for the one but find yourself out of luck after every failed relationship? Use astrology to guide you closer to a winning match. Express.co.uk chatted to astrologer Francesca Oddie (@francescaoddieastrology) to find out how astrology can determine the right partner for you.
Before you dive into Francesca’s suggestions and spend the rest of your life searching for a Scorpio because you’re a Taurus, there’s something to consider.
Astrology is more complicated than just your star sign, which is actually called your Sun sign, by the way.
Your Sun sign is linked to your personality, ego, and the type of person you want to become, but you need to look at your Venus, Moon, and Mercury too.
If the matches below don’t work for you, you should look at your entire birth chart to understand where the planets were at the time of your birth.
This will impact the type of person you are and your likes and dislikes.
Understanding the zodiac wheel is essential when discussing your compatible sign.
Francesca said: “Because the zodiac is a wheel, the opposite of every fire sign is an air sign and the opposite of every earth sign is a water sign.
“Fire and air are generally extroverted, while earth and water are more introverted.”
Astrologers say these signs are “different sides of the same coin”, which means they approach life differently but it compliments one another.
If the below match doesn’t sound right for you, you should try dating within your element.
The fire signs are Aries, Leo and Sagittarius. Earth are Taurus, Virgo and Capricorn.
Air are Gemini, Libra and Aquarius. Water are Cancer, Pisces and Scorpio.
Francesca said: “Fire signs love action, drama and seek to entertain and be entertained.
“Earth signs tend to value security, routine and ownership of quality things.
“Air signs love to talk, think, read and discuss. Water signs are emotional, sensitive and nurturing.
“While there can be too much of a good thing, we have a sense of kinship towards those who share our element.”
Read on to hear who your potential soul mate could be – but remember: look into other members of your element as potential matches and research your entire chart for an accurate reading.

Aries is attracted to Libra because Aries is a cardinal sign – it says ‘I want’.
Libra is willing to help them get it. They are six months apart, and opposite signs attract.
Mars is going to be in Aries for the rest of the year. In fact, it goes retrograde in Aries on September 6 until November 12.
Aries doesn’t normally suppress their anger, and this retrograde could make Aries asset themselves and say what they feel.
It may bring back some old lovers.
Uranus is in Taurus for the next few years, and that means that some surprise could happen.
Particularly for Taurus born in April, something could change the way you see someone.Relationships for Taureans, especially those born in April, have been in flux since 2018 and will stay like that for the next year.
That could be very exciting. Maybe you’re going travelling together or maybe you are living a more independent life.
Either way, relationships look up from November 22, when Venus moves into your relationship sector until December 16.
Taurus is a very practical and earthy sign, and they’re very loyal.Scorpio is the sign opposite Taurus, so they magnetically attract.
Scorpio is also the most magnetic sign of the zodiac and is quite emotional, suspicious and sensitive.
Scorpio really seeks out Taureans, because they are stable and reliable. They know where they are with them.
Gemini, your soul mate is Sagittarius.
You are opposite each other on the wheel. This is called the axis of education.
These two signs love to communicate, but they love their freedom.
You both value communication a lot in relationships.
You might like travelling but might have lots of individual friends.
Where Taurus and Scorpio like to spend time together alone as a couple, Sagittarius and Gemini are much more likely to be networking at a party together.
Venus is in Gemini until August 8, so Venus has got all the charm at the moment.
Venus was retrograde in Gemini, Gemini has had a lot of lessons and learning.
Perhaps some exes have come back into the picture during lockdown, and now that they are out they are socialising.
Relationships for Gemini come though friends and socialising because Mars is activating the area of their chart.
Relationships are changing a lot for Sagittarius and Gemini this year because of the eclipses.
The next set of eclipses in November and December will be in Sagittarius and Gemini.That really will amp up shifts in their lives.
Horoscope compatibility: Astrology isn’t all about your sun sign. Look at the rest of your chart.
Cancer is the mother archetypally and Capricorn is often seen as the father figure.
Part of the reason we are seeing such a shift in society in 2020 is because we have Saturn, Pluto, Jupiter, and some eclipses in Cancer and Capricorn.
We have seen a shift towards home and togetherness, mirroring Cancerian energy.
Because all of these big planets are in Capricorn transforming society, for Cancer it means it is transforming their relationships.
Cancers born in July particularly will have seen big changes in the relationships.
Mars is going to be square, so it is going to be a very make or break time.It’s about getting married, going to therapy, healing, sorting things out, splitting up, divorcing.
This time will be transformational and empowering for individuals within the relationship.
Leo likes to be centre of attention, so in theory, they get on well with Aquarius who is more detached and cool.
A woman who has a Venus or a Saturn in Aquarius, they tend to draw a lot of Leo types.
The Leo takes on the leadership role and Aquarius is very happy to be one of the crowd.
I do often find that Leos really like each other, like a pride of lions.
Often people with rising Leo or Venus in Leo will marry or date someone with Mars in Leo or someone who is a Leo.
They seem to bond well.Otherwise, Leo gets on with other fire signs.
There has to be that fire and drama.
Leo is the sign that rules theatre and drama, so a few fireworks tend to be a thing.
For the rest of the year, they might be looking to foreign people, holiday romances, and summer flings if they get away.
They might meet someone through their friends and through socialising.
Virgo and Pisces are opposite signs and a great match.
The pair might enjoy a drink and being health together, so might go for a run and then go for a boozy lunch.
There could be some interesting deep and binding encounters.
Maybe Virgo has recently met someone at work.
Venus moves into Virgo on October 3 until October 28, and that could be a nice time for dating for Virgo.
Even though it isn’t common consensus, Virgo and Gemini could get on well because they are both ruled by Mercury and they both like communication and chatting.
Both are quite flexible and even though in theory they are in a fairly tense dynamic, in practicality they work quite well.

Libra has mastered the art of getting other people to do what you want, and they thank you for it!
They have got charm and diplomacy in abundance.
Currently, with Venus in fellow air signs, they’ve been doing a lot of chatting and socialising.

This will be very intense, but will also be quite healing.

You may find yourself making decisions, or cutting off old situations and bringing in the new.
Venus comes into Libra on October 28 until November 22– throughout the whole of Scorpio season.This could be a good time for Libra to date.
Scorpio loves their Taureans, but Uranus is in their relationship sector.
October-born Scorpios may have seen some excitement in their relationship sector, which could mean a little bit of distance, space, freedom and independence.
This could be an exciting development. You have experienced this unpredictability over the past few years.
Venus gets to Scorpio on November 22 until December 15, so this will be an amorous time for Scorpio.
Sagittarius loves Gemini because they’re all about freedom and communication.
They really value friendship and having freedom to be friends with people of both sexes– they thrive on a multitude of relationships.
With Venus in their relationship sector until August 8, there’s plenty of opportunity for them to meet someone and explore all of their opportunities and keep meeting people.
They may be feeling quite dynamic now with Mars in their fifth house.
Sag may be wearing lots of colour and expressing themselves, and this is emphasised on December 15 during Sagittarius season the day after the eclipse.
This will be a very exciting time for Sagittarius in their relationships.
Venus moves to Sagittarius on December 16 and the eclipse in Sagittarius is on December 14.
Jupiter moves into Aquarius on December 20, which is their communication sector.

Aquarius love Leo, Gemini and Libra because they love chatting and having lots of friends and networks.
Aquarius also wants loyalty and they kind of enjoy being with someone special because it reminds them that they are special too.

Venus is in that sector reminding them into August 8, so you might be feeling confident and snazzy.
Venus will get to your seventh house on September 7 until October 3, so that’s your time to get out and about.
Pisces loves Virgo because it will organise Pisces and help it out.
Pisces also loves Cancer and Scorpio because they are water signs.
