This Is What Your Soulmate Is Like, Based On Your Zodiac Sign


(March 21st to April 19th)

Your soulmate is your intellectual equal.

Aries may be the leaders of the zodiac, but their ideal partners aren’t followers. Aries need to meet their mental match. They need someone who will challenge their ideas and help them to grow, someone they trust and can use as a sounding board. Aries need someone who is a leader in their own right, who will be more inclined to lead with them in life.


(April 20th to May 21st)

Your soulmate is your artistic equal.

Tauruses are known for being super visual people, and their ideal partner is the someone who will share their vision and help them achieve it. Tauruses are held back by anybody who thinks that they are too shallow or image-driven. These people simply don’t understand what makes a Taurus thrive, and it ends up becoming a huge source of frustration for them (even if they get along in other ways).


(May 22nd to June 21st)

Your soulmate is the person who grounds you.

Geminis tend to be so all over the place that their ideal partners are the ones that humble and ground them. Their best partner is someone who makes them feel comfortable and at home, someone who challenges their ideas and makes them think, but in an inspiring, unaggressive way. Geminis actually crave this kind of stability and simplicity in a partner, mostly because they usually have very little of it in other aspects of their lives.


(June 22nd to July 22nd)

Your soulmate is the person you want to spend all of your time with.

As one of the more emotional signs in the zodiac, Cancers usually seem like they wear their hearts on their sleeves. Despite their loving nature, Cancers only truly click with some people, and their ideal soulmate is the one they can be around happily for hours and days without interruption. A Cancer probably came up with the phrase “marry your best friend.”


(July 23rd to August 22nd)

Your soulmate is the person who you are most proud to be with.

Leos thrive with partners who they think are on their “level” or higher. Leos are notorious for dating “outside of their league” because they know that the effort and dedication they will put into the relationship can make them contenders for anyone’s affection. A Leo’s ideal partner is the person they are most proud to be with and around, to show off to anyone and everyone.


(August 23rd to September 22nd)

Your soulmate is the person who takes care of you as much as you do them.

Virgos need to come home and feel like they have a partner who is as sensitive, responsible, action-oriented and caring as they are. When a Virgo isn’t out trying to help the world, they need someone who will take care of them, someone who will give back to them the kind of unconditional care that they give to others.


(September 23rd to October 22nd)

Your soulmate is your passionate lover.

Libras are ruled by Venus, which makes the romantics of the zodiac. They are the most fiery and passionate sign when it comes romance. Pair this with their idealistic tendencies, and that makes a Libra’s ideal partner someone who they are absolutely obsessed with. Their soulmates are usually attractive, funny, warm, make great partners and co-parents. Libras don’t settle until they are in “like” as much as they are in “love.”


(October 23rd to November 22nd)

Your soulmate is the person you’re not afraid to open up to.

Scorpios are picky, and do not let just anyone into their inner worlds (they are often a bit closed in that way). This comes from the fear of someone seeing their true colors and discovering they aren’t “good enough.” This is why a Scorpio’s soulmate is the person they aren’t afraid to open their heart to, or at least try for. If a Scorpio is willing to put one of their worst fears – rejection/inadequacy – on the line, it means they feel that someone is very, very worth it.


(November 23rd to December 21st)

Your soulmate is the person you’d change everything for.

A Sagittarius doesn’t really believe in settling down (like, ever) but when they find their perfect match, it is astounding what they will be willing to do to keep them. A good way to tell whether or not a Sag has found their soulmate is basically to see whether they’re willing to commit and do whatever it takes to be with them. If they’re not, it’s not the right person yet.


(December 22nd to January 20th)

Your soulmate is the person who understands you.

Capricorns are known for being mindful, practical and ambitious, but they are very often misunderstood. They can come across as conservative or stubborn-minded (even if that’s not the case) and they need someone who is able to see past these layers and into who they really are. Capricorns usually have a lot boiling beneath their surface, and they need someone who sees, respects and desires just that.


(January 21st to February 18th)

Your soulmate is the person who believes in you.

An Aquarius’ ideal partner is someone who sees their vision when nobody else does. It’s the person who doesn’t mind waiting for them to be finished with work, and then talking about their existential theories and business plans at dinner. Their soulmate is truly their life partner, someone who they cannot only share their dreams with, but who can participate in seeing them to fruition.


(February 19th to March 20th)

Your soulmate is your muse.

A Pisces’ soulmate is someone that inspires them. It’s the person that they are infatuated with, who helps them redefine what love means. It is the person who a Pisces feels a distinctly divine connection with, someone who makes them want to create and feel even more alive. Thought Catalog Logo Mark
