Zodiac pairs that bring out the worst in each other – Times of India


This column has been written by astrologer and palmist, Sunita Chabra

As social beings, everybody wants acceptance and recognition from and within society, so we tend to make adjustments with others. But it is not an easy task, as the personality of each individual is unique. Astrology can help you understand and establish human relationships with love and tolerance. It is said matches are made in heaven; well it is true, for good or for worse. There are times when two people meet, through ‘twist of destiny’, and instantly recognize that they are ‘soul mates’. They share this journey of life with happiness, laughter, grief or sorrow. It is destiny that brings them together.

There are few who fulfil, complete or help each other to travel through this difficult journey of life, yet there are few who create hurdles, obstacles, problems or hurt; you may find this hard to believe but even they are your ‘destiny souls’. One who suffers or one who inflicts pain and grief to the other, both learn through experience and travel in this journey of life together. None of us can control the eventual results of the causes we have initiated, or set into motion, into the present lifetime but with the ‘free-will’ to change our karmas, we may set into motion future conditions we will inevitably meet. Mostly, we talk of ‘love relations’ but let us talk of ‘toxic relations’ that brings out the worst in each other. It is really strange, how one person can be a nightmare to one individual yet be a perfect partner to the other. One of the biggest reasons a relationship can turn toxic is a clash of personalities and through astrology understand which all zodiac pairs can bring out the worst in each other. Through astrology, understanding and modifying one’s behaviour, as part of social and karmic maturity, will go a long way in helping a person to succeed (professionally, financially and personally) in life. Life is cyclic, what you give eventually comes back to you, so let’s understand this to make our lives better.

There are four elements in astrology, namely—
fire, earth, air and water. The zodiac signs belonging to these groups tend to take on the characteristics of the element (fire, earth, air and water) which are largely responsible for an individual’s temperament and its relationship with others. The laws of chemistry define the actions of fire, water, earth, and air in the real world, likewise, the zodiac signs behave in a similar manner, which is why some signs bring out the worst in others. The elements combine astrologically the same way as they do in nature. The same element (earth, water, air, or fire) form the most beautiful mathematical trine/ 180° angles to each other and the worst compatible are those forming square/90 °.

FIRE SIGNS: Aries, Leo, Sagittarius & WATER SIGNS: Cancer, Scorpio, Pisces: Bad

A fire sign (Aries, Leo and Sagittarius) and water sign (Cancer, Scorpio and Pisces) are not easy signs to get along well and can bring out the worst in each other. This is because water signs are sensitive and emotional beings. Whereas Fire signs are straightforward and will say what they feel. Water likes to flow gently on its own time and rhythm, while Fire ignites and burns bright with a glow. As in nature, water can extinguish fire, so is true in life. Too much fire can dehydrate delicate sensitivities of watery signs and overwhelming emotions may douse the enthusiasm and drain the energy of Fire signs. Every fire sign (Aries, Leo and Sagittarius) is independent and on a certain level, they need the freedom to express themselves to be happy. Water signs (Cancer, Scorpio and Pisces) love deep and are mostly intuitive, maybe psychic to read between the lines and get easily affected by underlying vibes. Water signs tend to recall what you said to them in the past and also to suffer over harsh words. The aggression of Aries, the ego of Leo and bluntness of Sagittarius is brought to the surface; often there are ego clashes leaving fire signs snapping angrily and water signs sulking. They will disagree over trivial issues. When they are together, neither of them adopts a logical position, and keep building harmful emotions up inside, until exploding at some point. Fire and Water drain each other’s energy and bring out the worst in each other. There is a divine plan in place; the sacred contract ensures each soul mate needs to perfect their soul and find ways to control the worst that surface in you. Astrology can help us learn a life lesson of adjustment or move on, should destiny throw conflicting personalities together, lest we will forever keep meeting people who will challenge and bring out the worst in us.

AIR SIGNS: Aquarius, Gemini, Libra AND EARTH SIGNS: Taurus, Virgo, Capricorn: Bad

Air in nature is invisible and circulates. Air can be gentle and we all need air to breathe, but don’t jump to hasty conclusions. Statistically, air kills more people in one way or another (covid-19 has made us realize this truth). Earth is stable and supports all living organisms. Those who belong to the air sign group are quick, curious, charming and maybe flirtatious. Earth signs are stable and sensual, and they rule the physical world. Earth sign—Taurus look for financial stability, Virgo go for methodical planning and Capricorn are committed workers. Earth sign and air sign, in personal or professional capacity, do not bond well for Air signs all is in their head and think too much, while the Earth is only analyzing practicality and do not want to waste any time on thinking. Air sign may find practical Earth sign people rigid and so, Air and Earth sign may criticize each other for their respective choices. The traits of earth signs are difficult to deal with for the enthusiastic Air sign; these two are not a suitable match for each other. However, blocking out your soul contracts with even the most annoying people that don’t serve you. Understanding simple practices to just disengage and hold onto your sanity is better. Destiny wants you to resolve issues such as, ego, controlling behaviour and insecurities (some you didn’t even know were in you), accept the challenges that bring out the worst in you, for destiny may not give you a chance again to reunite with precious ones you lose in this life journey.
