If you really want to know a person, live with them. And, like everything else, your star sign can shed light on which housemates are going to be good, bad or downright ugly for you. Your sign's compatibility can influence who you’re likely to find cosy companionship with, and who's likely to become a live-in nemesis worthy of a Netflix true crime drama…
If you're... ARIES
- Aries. You both ‘get’ each other and quickly suss out that you are equal allies (and potential adversaries), so the respect is mutual and immediate.
- Sagittarius. If the house hasn’t burned down after a couple of weeks then this pairing will lead to lifelong memorable antics. Your house is THE party venue.
- Libra. Kind of opposite characters but you help to liven them up and they seem OK with doing all your cleaning up. Fair dos.
- Virgo. Their judgement and critique on your frequent *bold ideas* (‘ridiculous’ is how they’d describe them, actually) will make you mopey and defensive.
If you're... TAURUS
- Capricorn. You are both kinda protective of your stuff. Everything will be covered in bubble wrap/protective gauze, and name-labelled (in blood), but hey ho. Better safe than sorry, right?
- Scorpio. Your shared appetite for sensual pleasures will create a fragrant, luxurious, cordon bleu-level kitchen service retreat from everyday life. People will PAY to visit you.
- Virgo. So respectful and courteous of your stuff (Taureans get weird about their stuff) you won’t even know they’re there. Perfect.
- Sagittarius. This no filter, messy hooligan will disrupt and distort your need for peace, calm and quiet.
If you're... GEMINI
- Aquarius. They spend so long living in their own head that you are spared the need to communicate, let alone entertain, which means being home is like a holiday.
- Sagittarius. They are as fun-loving as you, if not actually more so. If you’re looking to live in a frat house-style state of high octane excitement 24/7, get a Sagittarius in the spare room pronto.
- Libra. They’ll look after you when you’re poorly (even the *fake poorly* routine you’ve got down to an art). Like having a live-in parent again. Awww.
- Cancer. You know how you hate clingy, needy souls who want to SHARE their (horror!) FEELINGS all the time? Yup. Avoid.
If you're... CANCER
- Pisces. You’re both so dreamy and creative, the place will look AMAZING. You both like psychic shit and talking about your deepest emotions for, like, a loooong time.
- Capricorn. You can be a bit spacey sometimes and Capricorn will help keep you grounded and paying the bills/renewing the TV licence/taking the bins out, etc.
- Virgo. They are willing to listen to you. Sometimes that’s all you really want. They are also wise enough to know when to input an (always sensible) suggestion and when to just glaze over…
- Gemini. They will make fun of you, nick your food, belittle your emotions, cut you off when you’re sharing something important, and go out too much. It will be like living with the devil.
If you're... LEO
- Cancer. Because you like an adoring audience and this will be like having your own live-in No.1 fan on tap (until it gets weird which, trust me, it will).
- Sagittarius. They are as energetic, adventurous and outgoing as you, if not even more so. When you settle down over competing for popularity and join forces, you realise you’re both the best wing person you could hope for.
- Aquarius. Their cool, detached and analytical personality intrigues you. Bonding over real-life crime dramas and BBC2 space/wildlife shows will be a nightly ritual. You’ll learn a LOT.
- Scorpio. Their confident (*arrogant*), composed (*self-absorbed*) persona will rub you up all kinds of wrong ways and you won’t be able to impress/wow/subdue/beat them.
If you're... VIRGO
- Capricorn. Together you can make this the house that runs like clockwork, nothing out of place, every bill up to date and filed in a laminated pouch. Even your towels will be colour-coded by month.
- Virgo. Your zodiac twin understands how your outwardly judgey/critical demeanour is only because you’re very hard on yourself (and you have standards, godammit). You can leave critical post-it notes to each other every day, and no one will cry.
- Pisces. Something in your nature loves to help others because secretly you believe you can do it (i.e. everything) better. Pisces will sign over their entire life to you on this basis, and you can enjoy feng shui’ing and organising the zodiac’s most dreamy/chaotic sign. Makeover time!
- Leo. The mess. Oh god, the mess.
If you're... LIBRA
- Aries. They are your opposite sign and therefore you kind of fill each others' ‘holes’... in a character/personality way. So, life will not be dull and you’ll be pulled in new directions. It’ll be fun.
- Taurus. You love harmony, beauty and serene, elegant surrounds. So do they. Together you can co-create a home of great luxury, comfort and bliss. A front-page lifestyle mag nest.
- Gemini. You like talking, they like talking. Yap yap yap, all day long. About what? NOTHING. That’s the beauty of it. Sheer mindless fun.
- Virgo. You are known for your procrastinating and dithering (you just like to weigh up the options). Virgo will back you into corners over every little thing that requires a joint decision. House meeting agendas will ramp up, minutes will be taken, accountability assigned. Ugh.
If you're... SCORPIO
- Cancer. You’re both Water signs and therefore understand each other has intensity, deep emotions and a need for privacy, if not secrecy, around your shenanigans. You will ride the waves of everyday life in parallel, in tandem… without actually touching.
- Libra. They like to make everything pleasurable and luxurious and you’re a creature who likes your home comforts. They’re also incredibly diplomatic so they won’t stroke your fur (actually scales… your spirit animal is a snake) the wrong way.
- Gemini. You’re both super smart and like to observe other people’s problems, offering extremely dark and inappropriate commentary. Together you’ll form an unholy, and extremely comedic, alliance. Partners in crime (sometimes literally…)
- Aries. Every day will like a scene from The Real Housewives, an episode when someone threatens another with a broken glass/golf club/hair brush.
If you're... SAGITTARIUS
- Leo. High jinx, high octane, high living. It’s all wham bam, crash bang wallop with an extra dose of freak-out. Make sure you have insurance.
- Sagittarius. You don’t have a verbal filter (do you ever wonder why you get in so many fights?) and it’s tough to try and curb your tongue. Living with another Saggie means you’ll never have to, you can both gob off to your heart’s content and no one will cry about it.
- Gemini. You love to party, they love to party. You like mingling and mixing and changing up your friends (and lovers) on the reg, so do they. No strings, no neediness, no cloying, "Who are you out with tonight?" interrogations. Two freewheelers freewheeling through life.
- Pisces. They will hang on your every word and want to go wherever you go. Cute at first… annoying AF after literally two weeks. You cannot deal.
If you're... CAPRICORN
- Cancer. Your total opposite sign but, in a weird way, you often really enjoy spending time with each other as what you lack, they have, and vice versa. Compatible and caring companionship.
- Virgo. They appreciate (and can even top) your need for tidiness, order and precision. The clocks will all be at exactly the same time, to the millisecond. This is a task you can share and enjoy.
- Libra. You hate being teased (even affectionately) and Libra will work this out rapidly. They are the most diplomatic and charming sign, so you can relax in their company - no *banter*.
- Sagittarius. A creature of fun and spontaneity (*chaos*). They will get on your very last nerve.
If you're... AQUARIUS
- Gemini. Intellectually they can match your curiosity and interest in the wider world because they know (a little) about nearly everything. You can documentary-binge together.
- Leo. Sometimes it’s good to get out of your head and enjoy the physical world (you know, like, food and other people). Leo is like Captain Good-Times and will make sure your weekend agenda perks up dramatically.
- Virgo. Will (happily) make sure the bills are paid, floors are swept, oven is degreased etc, while you’re in the attic watching the stars and just thinking.
- Cancer. They have a lot of emotions which require discussion and analysis. Always. In other words, a living hell.
If you're... PISCES
- Cancer. They ‘get’ you on every level and can mirror your emotions and talk about them for days on end. A giant live-in therapy sesh.
- Pisces. Your zodiac twin will understand your moods and adapt to them. Like two fish in a bowl you’ll create a calm, serene pool to circle each other peacefully.
- Libra. A tactful and pleasing shape-shifter who will delight in your imaginative home improvement ideas (tie dye’s back, you know), encourage your creativity, and flatter you. Bliss.
- Gemini. Does not respond to tears well. Will literally leave the house, for hours, until they think you’re done. WTF.
