Whether or not these two are an item or just friends might be a mystery, but Lucy Hale and Colton Underwood's astrological compatibility is pretty close to perfect. Rumors about a potential romantic relationship between the two started swirling on July 15, when the actor and the former Bachelor star were spotted hiking the Paseo Miramar Trail in Los Angeles together. According to a reported source, TMZ reports the maybe-couple has gone on a few "casual hike dates," and an insider reportedly told People they connected over Instagram DMs. "They are very casually dating," the source for People added. TBH, I'm into it, especially since their zodiac signs are totally compatible.
Hale was born on June 14, which makes her a Gemini. Underwood's birthday falls on Jan. 26, making him an Aquarius. Gemini and Aquarius are one of the strongest pairings in the zodiac, and it's not just because they're both air signs. Both Gems and Aquarians tend to be wildly intelligent and curious individuals who challenge each other in the best kinds of ways. Their shared spontaneity makes them perfect partners for adventuring, and they always find new ways to surprise each other. Basically, an Aquarius-Gem relationship is anything but boring.
There's a reason why Geminis tend to be popular amongst their peers — they're so easygoing and adaptable that everyone wants to be around them. Positivity queen Hale certainly exudes Big Gem Energy, and as she told W magazine in June 2019, she likes to spend time with people who also see the glass as half-full. "...you are who you surround yourself with, so surround yourself with people who lift you up," she said. Back in January 2013, she even told Seventeen she doesn't "really believe in cliques," adding, "I think everyone can be friends with everyone." Geminis are social butterflies, and it seems like Hale could get along with just about anyone.
As well as being outgoing and energetic, Gems are also whip-smart, though that can often cause them to overthink everything they do. As a result, the twins of the zodiac tend to be totally indecisive, which is why they distract themselves with constant company and stimulation. In January 2020, Hale confessed to Cosmopolitan that she used to fear being on her own. "When I was younger, I was constantly wanting to be with or date someone because I was so deathly afraid of being single or by myself," she said. Though she's become far more independent, there's no denying Hale's Gemini through and through — just ask the Gemini constellation tattooed on her arm.
Perhaps the only people who can keep restless Geminis constantly guessing are Aquarians. Aquarius is the most uninhibited and individualistic sign out there, so it makes sense Underwood is known as the rule-breaking Bachelor. I mean, he dumped his two finalists and hopped a fence in order to pursue Cassie Randolph, which is only something an Aquarius could pull off. "...without hesitation, without even thinking, I was just like, screw it. I'm over this thing. Let's do it," Underwood said of the moment during an August 2019 interview with This American Life. Aquarians are rebels with a cause, y'all.
The best thing about an Aquarius-Gem relationship is that these two bring out the best in each other. An Aquarius' sureness and openness can help Gemini form opinions and stick to them, while a Gem's mellow nature allows Aquarius to chill for once. Gems and Aquarians are truly a dream team, so if Hale and Underwood actually are a thing, I have a good feeling about them.
