Fighting is a fact of life… and a fact of relationships. People aren’t always that great at communicating, let alone even knowing what their feelings are, to begin with, so we intercommunicate frequently. We also take things personally that really just have to do with the person who delivered them, and we react defensively when we’re trying to protect ourselves from unseen forces that might not actually be threatening our well-being.
This gets even more complicated when different personality types are adding to the mix of everything that we’ve developed about our way of communicating throughout life. Our astrological signs are associated with certain qualities that we have that seem to remain fixed in lives, meaning that certain signs just get along better with others no matter what kind of people they are. Here are the 15 zodiac combinations that fight more than the rest. Some of these can get pretty explosive too. But you know what they say: there’s a fine line between love and hate, right?
15. Leo And Aquarius
The Leo and the Aquarius can make a passionate team, but they are also one of the more explosive zodiac combinations out there. If they are going to get along they have to be specific about nurturing each other’s needs. The thing is that they’re both really strong signs so they are more likely to butt heads. Think about the Leo being the king and the Aquarius always wanting to assert their own independence. It can get complicated and the battle for power can go on and on over time even if it ebbs and flows with communication and is reflecting anything else that might be happening in their life. What’s strange is that the power struggle that these two into actually serves to bring up some of their own insecurities around their individuality, since they’re not in a position where they are always running the show. This can push them to consider their confidence and figure out new ways to grow if they have a mutual respect that is.
14. Aries And Taurus
Aries are a very strong willed and stubborn sign, but the Taurans are also incredibly stubborn. When two stubborn people dig their heels in and refuse to budge, it’s a total recipe for disaster. When these two get into a disagreement about something they won’t want to change their own viewpoint on it even if they’re wrong, simply because they have an investment in being right. To move past this, one or both of them has to be willing to give in to a certain extent, which they have to be incredibly motivated to do. In a relationship, the Aries can take some time figuring out what they want because they tend to have some commitment issues. This can be a hot topic for the Tauran who wants to know where they stand in a relationship at all times. If they ask the Aries will feel even more pressured than before which can make them pull away more than before. Then the Tauran will be confused and not happy very happy about it.
13. Virgo And Gemini
Virgos feel the need to have things organized and under control at all times, but Geminis are much more unpredictable. In fact, Geminis are often said to have a bit of a trickster energy while the Virgo is more likely to have trust issues. If anyone in this situation was a particularly jealous type this imbalance of understanding could reach crazy heights and turn super explosive. If these two are not communicating well, the Virgo will never understand the Gemini’s flighty tendencies which will set them off and lead the Gemini to react as well. The Gemini might even think that the Virgo is crazy, and the sensitive Virgo won’t like it. The good thing is that both of these signs are pretty good at communicating, so even when they are fighting if they are in the same room they are likely to say the things that they feel the need to say. Of course, that doesn’t hold true if things get to such an explosive level that the Gemini is out the door before the Virgo gets a word in.
12. Scorpio And Aries
Scorpio and Aries can have an incredibly explosive relationship based on the fact that they’re so similar. At first glance, these signs seem really different, being that Scorpio is a water sign and Aries is a fire sign. After all, fire and water coming together create a lot of steam. But they’re both incredibly passionate signs and they are both ruled by Mars, which means that they have a lot of energy for life. If they’re on the same page that’s great, but they can also become incredibly competitive with one another no matter what sort of a relationship it is. Both of these signs have a short temper so they are likely to reach their boiling points really quickly. And then add on to that the fact that the Scorpio is likely to hold a grudge…which can even last forever in the more extreme circumstances. If these two are in a romantic relationship they might also experience some issues with the differences in how they express their love.
11. Gemini And Capricorn
The Gemini and the Capricorn can have some complicated tendencies together…that can turn totally awkward and challenging. These two aren’t a very natural duo so if they’re going to get along they both have to be willing to do some major work in understanding and appreciating one another. These two communicate from totally different places. The Gemini can be all over the place but they’re good at talking about their feelings. The Capricorn on the other hand only shares deeper stuff when they are asked to, they’re not as willing to offer up their thoughts on their own. These two can also be a little off balance in their communicating since the Gemini is one of the children of the zodiac while the Capricorn is more like a parent. This can draw them together in some ways if they are trying to work something out with that dynamic, but they also can start to resent each other for playing into the role.
10. Taurus And Aquarius
The Taurus and the Aquarius are not a great match when it comes to romance, and they can be an oppositional duo. These two signs just have a totally different outlook on life and it doesn’t make them feel comfortable with one another. The Aquarians can be a bit aloof as far as the Taurus is concerned, and the Taurans desire for a stable existence is hard to understand for the more eccentric Aquarian. Those differences are huge differences when it comes to how people live their lives, and if they’re trying to do it together they are going to have a lot of issues being patient with the other. They will always be speaking a different language and it’s really hard for them to figure out a way to communicate even when they’re both actively trying, so things can get weird. The Taurans will push their points too far for the Aquarians, and the Aquarians will then try to back away from the situation which is going to raise the heat from the Taurans end even more. Talk about infuriating.
9. Leo And Scorpio
Leo and Scorpio can get into the kind of fight that you won’t want to be around to witness since they both have super strong personalities. These two can be super drawn to one another in different circumstances, but they also can both be super dramatic, meaning that not only are they more likely to get into intense fights, but those fights are likely to exist at really high levels. In fact, that might borderline on frightening and can cut some wounds that never heal if they aren’t careful. They’re both fixed signs meaning that they are unwilling to compromise, and they’re also both power hungry, so they’re willing to do whatever it is that they need to do to find the power that they seek. The Leo will do this is showy ways, while the Scorpio might even do it through some manipulation. You don’t want to see them fighting for the same thing. Both of these signs can be super jealous as well, so if they’re in romantic relationships the fights can come often.
8. Sagittarius And Virgo
The Sagittarius and the Virgo generally don’t create a fairy tale type of bond if they’re trying to date one another… although it’s possible. These signs come from different elements which can be part of the issue with them. Sagittarius is a fire sign so they can be super passionate about going after what they want in life. The Virgo, on the other hand, is an earth sign and doesn’t take as many risks. The Sagittarius can find it aggravating that the Virgo prefers to stay in control and keep some stability, while the Virgo can be thrown off by the Sagittarius’ interest in always being so forceful about it. When they’re trying to do things together this can turn a bit chaotic since they just inherently don’t understand each other’s basic way of dealing with things. They are also are unlikely to trust each other, which can lead to some explosive misunderstandings. In a romantic relationship, the both of them can start to feel trapped.
7. Cancer And Libra
The Cancer and the Libra don’t always connect. Cancers are looking for an emotional connection while the Libra is looking for a mental one, and the Cancer is likely to be a bit moody and the Libra is always looking for some harmony. When the Cancer feels moody and misunderstood they are likely to withdraw, and the Libra is not going to be very intuitive so they won’t know how to help fix what the Cancer is feeling. This can leave both of them upset and frustrated and sort of unsure about what the problem was, to begin with. The Libra is also going to be more likely to need to go out and talk to other people about their lives, which can also mean that they end up sharing personal details about their relationships that Cancer would rather keep quiet. Depending on what the issue at hand is, having them share the personal details of a disagreement can feel like a huge breach of trust and privacy.
6. Pisces And Leo
Leos are a bold sign who are not afraid to go after the attention that they want to prove their place of power in the world, while the Pisces is a more gentle dreamer that can get wrapped up in their own dream world. These just two just aren’t operating on the same level at all times. The problem with that mismatch of desires is that the Leo isn’t going to feel like the Pisces is giving them enough attention, even though the Pisces might be totally down for what they stand for. If the Leo is feeling like they aren’t getting the attention that they need, then they can come on a little strong, which the Pisces will then be slightly intimidated or overwhelmed by. The Pisces doesn’t want to feel like their thoughts and feelings don’t matter, so they can get super frustrated and be pulled out of their dreamy world to address this issues, which they won’t like. This is a fire and water combination which always makes steam, and when it isn’t working these two can totally set each other off.
5. Aries And Cancer
Aries and Cancer can get along really good in general, but they can also get into some pretty explosive fights. Both of these signs are really strong willed but just in different ways. The Aries tends to be a pretty adventurous sign while the Cancer tends to be a more sensitive one, but the Aries should do well not to mistake Cancer’s emotional world for weakness. Cancer tends to be the type to try to make things work with people who they care about until something crosses the line and then they can snap and retreat. Good luck getting a Cancer back on your page once the bridge has been burned. The Aries can be reactive in the moment and a little distracted at times, and when the Cancer gets irritated about it and says anything that bothers the Aries, the Aries will then get aggressive and try to stubbornly hold onto their grudge even if what the Cancer was saying was totally accurate. They’re both stubborn, but just coming different emotional places, so these two have to be patient and understanding otherwise they’ll just piss each other off.
4. Scorpio And Scorpio
Two Scorpios can actually get along pretty great since they understand each other to a certain extent, except that they can’t trust each other. Scorpios are known for being a little sneaky from time to time and since they are aware of how that behavior looks in themselves, they will recognize it in other people as well. They can’t really hide that from each other. The problem is that sometimes they aren’t seeing the whole picture and they’re simply being suspicious of one another, not actually drawing on any true facts of the matter. If they both feel like they’re being straightforward, then they will be offended by the other person’s lack of trust in them, which will set off their egos to go protecting themselves. They might even pull back so far that they no longer want to continue sharing things with their friend/partner/whatever. They literally create the disharmony as a unit and then respond to it as a unit as well. These two can get into a heated screaming match over something that never even happened.
3. Aquarius And Cancer
The Cancer and the Aquarius aren’t a great love match because their personal life can be really stressful and weird. If they’re trying to make it work as a couple these two are likely to have some issues in the bedroom. Aquarians are a fixed sign, even though they are known to be innovative in certain ways. Cancers are ruled by the moon and it’s ever changing tides, meaning that they have a rich emotional life that ebbs and flows all the time. Since Cancers are naturally so sensitive so much, when they feel like their boundaries are being crossed they are likely to react and then draw back so that they can’t be crossed further. Cancer might feel like they can’t trust the Aquarian because they aren’t sure of what their emotional reaction will be in certain situations, so they can start to get into a habit of withholding things from one another out of defense, and eventually that always comes out on the other side and shows up somewhere else.
2. Leo And Virgo
The Leo and the Virgo can bring up some weird things in one another, and they are not great when it comes to a little thing called emotional intimacy. This can make communicating pretty tough. They both try to be rational, but they don’t ever understand why the other person is feeling what they are feeling, so the other person can feel irrational to them. Virgos tend to take an organized approach to things, which the passionate Leo might mistake for not being powerful. If the Leo tries to boss around the Virgo, the Virgo is going to be really annoyed but is likely to hold it in because they don’t like conflict either. Eventually, however, this was come out in an explosive way. The Virgo is also a big nitpicker, and if they have their opinions set on something about the Leo that comes out in a negative way, the Leo is not going to take their criticism well and can turn towards even more domineering ways to try and get their own point across.
1. Libra And Taurus
The Libra and Taurus just don’t trust each other, and they as a bonus, don’t communicate well either. At all. In fact, they can totally drive each other crazy. The Libra can come off as indecisive to the Taurus, while the Taurus is fixed and has really strong ideas about what they want. Neither of them understands that quality in the other, and it’s the type of thing that will come up all day long and irritate them. The Taurus can get really critical about the Libra if they perceive them as being less refined in any way, but then they will also get irritated at themselves for feeling that way and even start to feel insecure because of their guilt. This can make them feel like they want someone to take the guilt from them, which makes them feel powerless, and that’s the opposite of what their fixed structure should be doing for them. They have different values and they will both throw each other off their normal thing, which can totally set them off and lead to some weird arguments.
