Summer is often thought of as the best time be single. But there’s also something about finding love or, at the very least, engaging in a casual romance during the long, hot days of summer. Whether you’re at a beach destination or a backyard bash, summer presents the perfect opportunity for carefree dating. Scoping out a future bae this season? We’ve made the choice a lot easier for you by pairing up the most compatible zodiac signs. Read on to find your ideal match for a summer fling.
Leo + Aries
If there were any two zodiac pairings to heat up summer, it’s Fire signs Leo and Aries. These passionate signs have a flair for the dramatic. Perhaps this explains why your summer coupling is about to be lit, endless adventure. Fair warning, though: Your fiery match—filled with emotional breakdowns, competition and hair-trigger tempers—could lead to combustion by summer’s end.

Virgo + Cancer
Helper Virgo and Nurturer Cancer’s connection makes perfect sense. Your seasonal love story is one for the ages. You both understand the need for compromise, security and physical affection in a relationship. The problem you may run into, as temperatures rise, is keeping things interesting. Since your signs are typically homebodies, you’ll have to work on having fun away from the couch this summer.
Libra + Aquarius
These two carefree Air signs are one of the easiest pairings of the zodiac. You both have a knack for travel, adventure, mental stimulation and socializing. But when you get together this summer, your chemistry will be like no other. However, an Aquarian’s’ humanitarian spirit versus a Libra’s bent towards all things luxe could clash. Which means one of you could be pushed in the friend zone by fall.
Scorpio + Pisces
It’s rare to find someone as sensitive and romantic as you, Scorpio. But your fellow Water sign, Pisces, comes pretty close to being a perfect match. With an equally shared love for drama and music, Scorpios and Pisces are practically soulmates. To ensure the flame keeps burning bright well beyond summer, you’ll have to resist the urge to keep secrets and to withdraw emotionally from each other.
Sagittarius + Gemini
Opposites attract here. Geminis can be cool and distant and Sagittarians tend to wear their heart on their sleeves. If there’s one thing you do have in common, it’s the fact that you both hate being bored. Variety is the spice of life for you two. But as you throw dating conventions to the wind this summer, make time for each other in your busy schedules. If not, your fairy tale could have a not-so-happy ending.
Capricorn + Taurus
You’re both Earth signs and workaholics who radiate good vibes. One of the more traditional pairings, you’d much rather have a Netflix and chill night than spend money going out. A Capricorn is more practical and obsesses over the future, whereas the indulgent Taurus loves savoring the moment. In order to make it work for the long haul, your coupling will require a bit of compromise.
