People have turned to the stars for guidance for thousands of years.
For physical direction, dream interpretation, even important economic and marriage decisions.
Leaders even referred to astrologers for guidance.
We may not turn to astrology as much as we used to, but the stars just might be onto something when it comes to roommate compatibility.
When you search for a roommate it seems as long as they are clean, can pay their rent on time, and have similar lifestyles they’d be a perfect match.
However, it turns out that your personality’s can still clash horribly.
Obviously, there’s more to living with a person than logistics.
Next time try asking your potential roommate “what’s your sign?” before you sign the lease.
Here’s a guide on what you can expect when you share a home with other signs and who is the best fit for you.
