Why These 10 Celeb Couples Are Perfectly Matched, According to Their Astrology

Xavier Collins/Image Press/Splash; London Entertainment/Splash; Thunder Kick Photos/SplashIt's easy to look at a couples like Chrissy Teigen and John Legend or Prince William and Kate Middleton and feel like they're living in real-life fairy tales. Okay, that's probably somewhat true, but they're also just like us in that they're more compatible in some ways than they are in others. And it just might be that the sun signs under which they were born influence that compatibility.

Looking at our favorite celeb couples' astrology can offer some insight into why -- and in what ways -- they click. Here are 10 of the sexiest, most aspirational couples in Hollywood, and what we believe astrology has to say about their connection.

  • Chrissy Teigen and John Legend

    1

    Born on November 30, Chrissy Teigen is a Sagittarius, and born on December 28, her husband John Legend is the next sign over: Capricorn. On the surface, these two signs aren't exactly the most harmonious with one another, as fire sign Sag can be brash, outspoken, and free-spirited, while earth sign Caps tend to be more reserved and nose-to-the-grindstone.

    But if you look a little bit deeper at the pair's astrology, you'll find that John's moon sign (which represents his emotional center) is actually in Sag, so he understands Chrissy's outward personality. And his Venus (the planet of love, which represents how you behave in relationships) is in Scorpio, which forms a positive angle to Chrissy's moon in fellow water sign, maternal and food-loving Cancer! In short, these two speak the same emotional language -- and you can tell they have serious sexual chemistry, too!

  • Mila Kunis and Ashton Kutcher

    2

    Born on August 14, Mila Kunis is a Leo, and her longtime love Ashton Kutcher, born on February 7, is an Aquarius. Fire and air tend to work well together (as do earth and water), but these two signs are completely opposite one another in the zodiac. That means, at least on the surface, they likely share a yin-yang, balancing energy.

    Ashton's Mars (which rules how we take action in life) is in Cancer, forming a positive angle to Mila's moon in fellow water sign Scorpio. (Scorps tend to be rather private and protective, so that's why you see these two being rather guarded about their family life.) Given this water sign connection, their hearts and their actions are likely in sync, and this bodes well for their sex life and co-parenting style, too, as both water signs are highly family-oriented!

  • Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds

    3

    Blake Lively was born on August 25, which means she's a Virgo, and her hottie hubs Ryan Reynolds was born on October 23, so he's a Scorpio. The earth-water pairing definitely works -- both signs tend to be pragmatic and loyal. And Blake is as much a strong Virgo as Ryan is an intense Scorpio.

    Blake's ascendant -- which represents the personality we portray in public -- is in showy Leo, while Ryan's Venus -- which is his love personality, but also his creative center -- is in fun-loving Sag. These compatible fire signs speak to their work in the spotlight, but their Scorpio and Virgo dominates, so they're both actually pretty reserved and private, which is why they keep details about their home life and LOs under wraps!

  • David Burtka and Neil Patrick Harris

    4

    Born on May 29, David Burtka is a Gemini, and his husband Neil Patrick Harris, who was born on June 15, is also a Gemini. Two "twins" who now are proud parents of fraternal twins! Interesting how that works! Air sign Geminis each have (at least) two personalities, so put 'em together and you get (at least) four personalities in one relationship, which sounds kinda chaotic!

    But these two have other aspects balancing 'em out. David's Venus is in family-loving Cancer, just like NPH's Venus and Mercury (the planet that influences his communication style). NPH's Mars is in artistic Pisces, which is compatible with David's Venus, so it's clear this cute couple's heads and hearts are definitely in sync.

  • President Barack Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama

    5

    Born on August 4, President Barack Obama is a proud Leo, and First Lady Michelle Obama was born on January 17, making her a Capricorn. On the surface, the fire sign and earth sign are both ambitious but could clash personality-wise -- you've got Leo's outgoing personality vs. Cap's cool exterior.

    But when it comes to our beloved presidential pair, compatibility lies in two shared elements: Their moons are both in air signs (his is communicative Gemini, hers is forward-thinking Aquarius), and their Venuses are in water signs (his in patriotic and paternal Cancer, while hers is in poetic and empathic Pisces). They completely complement and support one another. Is that any surprise?

  • Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel

    6

    Justin Timberlake was born on January 31, so he's an Aquarius, and his longtime love and wife Jessica Biel was born on March 3, making her a Pisces. Air and water signs aren't typically the most compatible of all zodiac pairings, but they're more alike than their sun signs would let on.

    For one thing, Jessica's Mercury and Venus (so the way she communicates and loves) are both in Aquarius. And Justin's Mercury is in Pisces. So, these two definitely understand one another's communication and love styles. And though Aquarians tend to stick with their One True Love once they find them, they're pretty chill about settling down, so it's no wonder these two took their time to tie the knot. 

    In fact, Jessica is much more of an airy personality, thanks to her moon in Gemini and Mars in Libra. But his moon is in the exact same fire sign as her ascendant: entertaining Sag. Wow! "It's like you're my mirror" couldn't be more accurate, JT!

  • Portia de Rossi and Ellen Degeneres

    7

    Born on January 26, Ellen Degeneres is an Aquarius (like JT!), and her wife Portia De Rossi was born on January 31, so she's also an Aquarius! Two Aquarians can definitely be compatible, because at the core of their relationship is a friendship, and they'll know exactly how much space to give one another and how important socializing is to one another. 

    Beyond their sun signs, though, both have their ascendants and Mars in free-spirited Sagittarius. Ellen's moon is in Aries, and Portia's is in Sag, which means that they are both assertive about their emotions and go after what they want. Basically, they're a LOT alike -- and seem to have been made for one another, so it's no wonder they've been together for 12 years and married for more than eight! 

  • Jay Z and Beyonce

    8

    Jay Z was born on December 4, so he's a Sagittarius, and Beyonce was born on September 4, which makes her a Virgo. Sag's no-filter, big mouth tends to be a little too much for shy, particular Virgos, but Blue Ivy's mom and dad are more alike than they are dissimilar. 

    For starters, Jay's ascendant is Virgo, like Bey's sun, which means that publicly, they appear very much alike. His moon is in Libra, the same as Beyonce's Mercury, Venus, and ascendant. So, his emotional personality is guided by the same principles as how she communicates, loves, and is perceived by others. They're both constantly seeking balance.

    As if that wasn't enough, her moon is in stubborn Scorpio, which is the same as his Venus. So, no doubt the two have an intense sexual bond ("Drunk in Love," much?) and are likeminded on matters of love and family. Hence why they've stuck through it with one another, despite various challenges, and managed to make lemons from Lemonade?

  • Kim Kardashian West and Kanye West

    9

    Kim Kardashian West, born on October 21, is a Libra, and her bae Kanye West, born on June 8, is a Gemini, so North and Saint's parents are definitely one of those couples who appear to be highly compatible, if only because they're both air signs.

    Both also have their moon in Pisces, so emotionally, they definitely get one another, feel very deeply for others, and can easily get swept up in their emotions.

    They do have a shot at staying grounded, as well, thanks to Kanye's Venus (and Mars and Mercury) in Taurus, which is compatible with Kim's Venus is in fellow earth sign Virgo. Venus represents love and money -- so they're probably in sync when it comes to business matters and in the bedroom.

  • Kate Middleton and Prince William

    10

    Born on January 9, Kate Middleton is a Capricorn (like Michelle Obama!), and Prince William was born on June 21, which makes him a Cancer. Kate's earth is compatible with William's water: The two are both hardworking and center their lives around their loved ones (the royal family!). 

    Interestingly, both of them have moon in Cancer, so Kate can totally relate to her sentimental partner. And with Cancer being the most "maternal" sign of the zodiac, they both innately dote on the kids. They also both have their Mars in Libra, so they're driven by experiences that heighten fairness (all their charity work), harmony, and beauty (hello, gorgeous travel destinations!). Talk about the perfect pair!
