Signs of the same Element are the most "similar" in that they share several traits and strategies for living. Friendships are easily made and maintained. They are "comfortable" - but not as "interesting" or "exciting" as less similar Signs. A love relationship or marriage with a Sign of the same Element (or especially with the exact same Sign) can become "too" comfortable and run the risk of boredom and a lack of the challenges that promote personal growth.
Your best "love match" may be the three Sun Signs in your own Sun Sign's COMPATIBLE Element, not just the other two in the SAME Element. The Element of FIRE is most compatible with AIR - and vice-versa, AIR Signs are most compatible with FIRE Signs. The Element of EARTH is most compatible with WATER, and vice-versa. For example, Taurus (an EARTH Sign) is good with the WATER signs of Cancer, Scorpio, and Pisces. Aries (a FIRE Sign) is good with the AIR signs of Gemini, Libra, and Aquarius.
The three Signs in that matching Element are similar enough to the Taurus nature to be comfortable; but different enough to be interesting!
ONE of the Signs in your compatible Element will be your "opposite" Sign. For example, Scorpio (WATER) is the opposite Sign to Taurus (EARTH). Another example is: Gemini (an AIR Sign) is good with the FIRE Signs of Aries, Leo, and Sagittarius. Here, Sagittarius (FIRE) is the opposite Sign to Gemini (AIR). The traits of your OPPOSITE Sign are not 100% "opposite" in their nature - they are partly different (being traits of a DIFFERENT Element) and partly similar (as traits of a COMPATIBLE Element). This is why you can actually be quite "compatible" with your "opposing" Sign. The "opposites attract" effect is strongest when your month and day of birth (in any year) are close to 183 days (6 months) from theirs.
