As a single woman, you know the scene all too well: you’re sitting at the Thanksgiving table, and your grandmother wants to know when you’ll finally find a nice partner to settle down with. At your annual Christmas Eve party, your mother finds a way to bring up her lack of grandchildren to the group.

The most important thing to remember about zodiac compatibility is that you have to factor in the characteristics of both signs. ‘It’s not just a one-sided sense of what makes each sign attractive. It is what is attractive to my sign that I can find in your sign. It takes two to jibe. A great romantic partnership between the signs can be found between those signs who balance each other out.
