Aries are the bold and confident leaders of the zodiac. These extroverts love to put on a show and aren't afraid to remind the world just how awesome they are. And while some people love their feisty and fiery energy, others are turned off by it.

"Aries is known for their impulsive and headstrong nature, while Capricorn tends to be more conservative and cautious," explains Tiffany McGee, professional astrologer and founder of Nomadrs. "These differences in approach to life can cause tension between the two signs." Moreover, Aries, a fire sign, and Capricorn, a water sign, sit in incompatible elements, so sparks are sure to fly whenever these two disagree.

Taurus is the stubborn and steadfast problem solver of the zodiac. They'll be quick to tell you they're not going to change their mind, and they are not looking to befriend or date anyone who thinks they need fixing.

Aquarius, on the other hand, likes to constantly challenge the status quo and push others to do the same. And considering both Taurus and Aquarius are fixed signs, they'll be extremely committed to their own way of thinking, making it almost impossible for these two to compromise.

Gemini is the quick-witted comedian of the zodiac. They love having fun and meeting new people, so if there's one thing this sign can't stand, it's someone who doesn't know how to lighten up.

"Geminis are sociable and communicative, while Scorpios are more reserved and introspective. This can create misunderstandings and conflicts in their interactions," says McGee. In addition to not jibing with how they like to spend their time, these signs will butt heads due to their inability to communicate effectively.

Cancer: Sagittarius

Cancer is the intuitive and sentimental sweetheart of the zodiac. Known for their big hearts and giving spirits, it's easy to see why so many people get along with them.

Sagittarius, however, is known for their outrageous and wild sense of humor. And while Cancer might find some of Sags' jokes funny, it won't take long for their blunt way of speaking to rub Cancer the wrong way. As a result, miscommunication is the number one issue for these two signs—and it's unlikely that either will be willing to say sorry first.

Leos are known for their bold and confident nature. They tend to be natural leaders, and they're not afraid to speak their minds or take charge of a situation. "Leos have a strong sense of self-worth and often crave attention and recognition from others," says McGee.

Meanwhile, easygoing and reserved Pisces prefers to take a more subtle approach. While these two might tolerate each other initially, it's only a matter of time before Pisces feels talked over or Leo feels like the fun police are after them.

Virgo: Aries

Virgo is the meticulous perfectionist of the zodiac. They have high standards in friendship and dating, which means they value consistency in the people they choose to be close with.

On the other end of the spectrum is passionate and impulsive Aries, who likes to live in the moment and can be a bit overbearing. Not only do these two have completely different communication styles, but they also approach solving problems from opposite viewpoints. So while they both value the other's hard work and ambition, they can't help but pick at each other's faults incessantly.

Libra: Cancer

Libras are the fun-loving socialites of the zodiac. On the surface, their easygoing and charming personalities seem like a perfect match for a hopeless romantic like Cancer. And while it's true these two have a lot of physical attraction to one another, their communication is where things fall apart.

Libra likes to play peacemaker and dance around the issues, while Cancer wants to pour their heart out and talk about it. Over time, this dynamic will overwhelm Libra and leave Cancer feeling ignored, which is a recipe for resentment.

Scorpio: Leo

Scorpio is the most complex and mysterious sign of the zodiac. You never quite know what they're thinking or feeling, and they like it that way.

Leo, however, loves to be the center of attention and leave a lasting impression on pretty much anyone they meet. This conflict of personality type, along with both of these signs being a bit prideful and stubborn, is why Scorpio and Leo are enemies more often than they are friends.

Sagittarians are never content to stay in one place for too long. They have an adventurous spirit and like to go where the wind takes them. That's why they can't stand people who are overbearing or push their opinions on others.

Not only does a stubborn sign like Taurus need to make their opinions known, but it's not likely they'll agree with a Sagittarius about much. "Taurus values security and stability, while Sagittarius… seeks new experiences. This can lead to clashes over lifestyle choices and priorities," says McGee.

Capricorn: Libra

The dynamic between Libra and Capricorn is very interesting. Both of these signs have natural leadership qualities, but they have very different life viewpoints, which makes it difficult for them to see eye to eye.

The key difference is that Libras care desperately about how the world sees them. Meanwhile, Capricorn doesn't let others' opinions influence them in the slightest. This causes tension, with Libra seeing workaholic Capricorn as too inflexible and stern, and Capricorn seeing Libra as a bit of a people pleaser.

Aquarius is the rebel of the zodiac. They're always pushing the limits and love to shock with their radical ideas. They're attracted to people who have the same free spirit, which means they can't stand those who think too rigidly.

"Virgo is grounded and practical, while Aquarius is eccentric and unconventional. This can lead to disagreements over matters of lifestyle and values," says McGee. So although these two signs have a strong attraction to one another, it would take a miracle to make the relationship work.

Pisces: Gemini

Pisces are sensitive souls. They have big hearts that they aren't afraid to wear on their sleeves. If someone is too much of a critic of their ideas and feelings, Pisces is not going to get along with them.

On the flip side, Gemini has a playful and teasing nature that could cause Pisces to feel targeted. On top of that, Gemini is likely to feel hurt that Pisces sees them as negative or a bully because they consider themselves a friend to everyone. Communication is key to friendship, and unfortunately, that's where it all falls apart for these two.
