TAURUS This couple share a love of luxury but Leo likes to splurge whereas Taurus needs money in the bank.
VIRGO This is the perfect upstairs/downstairs combination. Leo likes to give orders and Virgo is happy to carry them out.

Note: Your Zodiac Sign refers to which astrological constellation the Sun appeared to be in on the date of your birth. Each sign lasts for about 30 days, starting from around the 21st of each calendar month. If you were born close to the cusp of one sign and the next, you will need to check your year of birth for which date and at what time on that date, the Sun moved signs.
