Love Profile: Fiery and full of energy you attract a lot of people to your charisma. You need to keep control of your temper with loved ones though, as ‘hot-headed’ is a classic Aries trait and can push sensitive people away. You have a very tender side which is easily hurt, let others know occasionally that you are not as tough as you seem.
What You Need: Freedom to move at your own pace and to keep your independence within the relationship.
Best Matches: Leo and Sagittarius match you for enthusiasm and passion. Gemini, Libra and Aquarius will always keep you entertained and stimulated.

Best Matches: Virgo and Capricorn for stability and security. Cancer, Scorpio and Pisces for emotional depth and softness.

Best Matches: Aries and Sagittarius for the fire and passion they bring. Libra and Gemini will keep you interested and feeling good.
Love Profile: Sometimes criticised for being too picky about relationships, you are actually just very careful about who you let close to you. You know what you want and are prepared to wait for it, just don’t get bogged down in small details and miss the ‘almost’ perfect love standing in front of you.
What You Need: Order and knowing where you stand. You have a tendency to worry so clear communication is a mist.
Best Matches: Taurus and Capricorn for the peace and quiet. Cancer and Pisces for the emotional soothing and calm.

Best Matches: Taurus shares your love of harmony, Aries, Leo and Sagittarius bring excitement and glamour,

Best Matches: Taurus, Capricorn and Virgo give you the security and depth you need. Pisces and Cancer get you emotionally.

What You Need: You must have fairness and balance in your relationships as nothing kills your love more than injustice.
Best Matches: Gemini, Aquarius and Libra bring mental stimulation and freedom. Aries and Leo can match your fire.

What You Need: Commitment, honesty and a shared set of goals you can both work towards. Capricorns make great power couples!
Best Matches: Taurus and Virgo for their stability. Cancer, Scorpio and Pisces for emotional depth.

Best Matches: Sagittarius and Gemini for the adventures and ideas. Aries, Libra and Leo for the excitement.

Best Matches: Cancer and Scorpio understand your emotional needs. Taurus, Virgo and Capricorn give you a stable base to grow from.
