No matter how hard they try, these zodiac siblings will never bond.
Some zodiac signs can be friends with just about everyone. Whether it’s their siblings, people they have just met, or total strangers, there are few zodiac signs who can make a connection with anyone they meet.
On the other side of the spectrum, there are also zodiac signs who have a hard time getting along with everyone. Not only are they not the type of people to strike up a conversation with a stranger or consider someone they just met a friend, but it’s hard for them to even connect with their own family, namely their siblings.
It doesn’t matter if they are practically the same age as their siblings, or if they have a lot in common, some zodiac signs will never be close with their family. I have been lucky enough to be close with my sister now, but it didn’t come without fighting with each other for years, like all siblings do, before we became friends.
Growing up, your parents probably told you that you had to be nice to your siblings. Even when they stole things out of your room after you told them not to touch your stuff, and even when you couldn’t find anything in common, you probably heard at least once or twice that you had to at least try to get along.
For some people, getting along with their siblings has never been a problem. For others, it would have been easier to walk over a bunch of Legos then even think about being nice to their siblings. I think it’s important to note here that it’s not a requirement to be close to your siblings or your family.
I am not condoning being a jerk to your brother or sister, or starting fights with the rest of your family for no reason, but I believe that the saying “blood is thicker than water“ means that whoever you choose to be your blood, whether that’s your family, your friends, or anyone else who is in your support system, is who you choose to be closest with.
Because of that, some zodiac signs might find that they are closest with their best friends or a mentor, instead of their blood relatives, which is totally fine. Zodiac signs that are never close to their siblings usually have similar experiences.
Zodiac pairs that don’t always get along can sometimes be too similar to each other, which means that they see traits in this person that they also see (and sometimes dislike) in themselves. Conversely, they might be the polar opposite of their sibling, which means that they might never have anything in common with this other zodiac sign.
Whether these polar opposites mean that two horoscope signs have different values or goals for themselves in life, or it just means that one is outgoing while the other is shy, trying to force two zodiac signs together that clearly don’t get along is always a recipe for disaster.
This usually means that these sibling pairs fight a lot or simply don’t interact with each other. Again, while there is nothing wrong with not being close to your family, it can cause some stress between families who have to live with or deal with each other for the time being.
ARIES (March 21 – April 19) + TAURUS (April 20 – May 20)
Aries and Taurus are two of the most stubborn signs of the zodiac. Not only are they constantly butting heads, but they don’t care how nasty their fights get because they’re siblings – that’s just what siblings do. Aries fights because he feels like he’s always right, while Taurus fights because he’s too stubborn to back down.
If there wasn’t such a need for power between these two, they could have a better relationship, but neither one will admit they’re wrong or back down. Having two stubborn energies battling for control will keep these two signs apart.
GEMINI (May 21 – June 20) + VIRGO (August 23 – September 22)
The dynamic between Gemini and Virgo doesn’t work well simply because their personalities are way too different. Gemini is more of the carefree and chaotic zodiac sign, while Virgo likes his order and rules. In some situations, this pairing wouldn’t be so toxic, however, Virgo and Gemini are just too different for things to work between them.
Virgo doesn’t understand why Gemini doesn’t take things seriously like he does, and Gemini can’t understand why Virgo won’t loosen up a bit and just have fun. These signs don’t necessarily hate each other, but the vibes are too different for them to be friends.
CANCER (June 21 – July 22) + AQUARIUS (January 20 – February 18)
If any two zodiac signs are polar opposites, it’s Cancer and Aquarius. Cancer is emotion, Aquarius is logic. Aquarius is thinking, Cancer is feeling. For some, opposites do attract, but for these two, it only pushes them further away. Cancers emotions are constantly ebbing and flowing, while Aquarius much rather prefers to keep his real emotions at bay.
Aquarius doesn’t get along with Cancer because he feels like he’s way too sensitive for him. Cancer has a hard time trusting Aquarius because he’s never really sure what he’s feeling since he never opens up about his emotions. It’s a battle between feeling too much and not enough.
LEO (July 23 – August 22) + SCORPIO (October 23 – November 21)
Leo and Scorpio are the opposite of polar opposites. The reason they have a hard time getting along is because they’re almost too similar. They both have incredibly big, powerful personalities and strong energies that they can’t help but clash when they’re together. In fact, you could even call them bullies because they’re always picking fights with each other for no reason.
Both of these zodiac signs are constantly vying for control. They both like being number one, and because they’re both fixed signs, they have a hard time compromising or giving up. Scorpio uses manipulation to get his way, while Leo takes a more aggressive, direct approach.
LIBRA (September 23 – October 22) + CAPRICORN (December 22 – January 19)
Libra needs compromise like he’s need air and water to survive. He does well in relationships and friendships where compromise means everyone stays happy. Capricorn, on the other hand, is the type of zodiac sign that will do whatever he wants, whenever he wants. This need for compromise versus not caring about other’s opinions makes this pairing a disaster.
There is very little communication between these two signs because neither one cares enough to listen to other. Libra is too much of a pushover for Capricorn and Capricorn is too obstinate for Libra, which means that every time they interact, someone ends up unhappy.
SAGITTARIUS (November 22 – December 21) + PISCES (February 19 – March 20)
The reason Sagittarius and Pisces can never be close is mainly because there’s no trust between them. Pisces needs a deep connection to really feel close to someone, while Sagittarius doesn’t create emotional bonds until he knows for sure someone is important to him. Both are intelligent and deep in their own ways, but they’re still too different to really connect.
Because they’re so different, neither zodiac sign really tries to communicate with the other. Neither cares to relate to each other, which leads to a lot of petty fighting. This could be solved if they tried harder to work it out, but once the trust is gone, there’s no coming back from that.
