Fans of TLC’s Sister Wives often debate whether Kody Brown has a favorite out of his four wives. But which of Kody’s wives is the best match for the 52-year-old polygamous dad of 18, according to astrology? Here’s what we can tell about the possible compatibility between Kody and each of his wives, based on their sun signs.

Kody Brown and Meri Brown are both Capricorns

Born Jan. 17, 1969, Kody’s sun sign is Capricorn. The Sister Wives star’s first wife, Meri Brown, was born just a day before him (but two years later), on Jan. 16, 1971, making her a Capricorn as well.

So, for those who follow astrology, it’s no wonder that Meri and Kody – despite their marital struggles over the years – often seem so similar in their personalities. Their therapist, Nancy, once told them they were both “exceptionally controlling people.”

Capricorns are grounded Earth signs, known for being responsible, practical, hard-working, and firmly rooted in reality. Often ambitious, serious, and organized, they make great managers and leaders. Capricorns often bond over shared values and beliefs, and the

However, two Capricorns in a relationship can sometimes pose a problem when they butt heads. When things go awry between two Capricorns like Kody and Meri, the relationship can fall into disrepair quickly, as both parties are likely to hold grudges. They also don’t like to be vulnerable, preferring to avoid intense displays of emotion, so it can be difficult for them to reconcile after a conflict.

Janelle Brown is a steady Taurus, making her a good match for Kody

Janelle Brown, Kody’s second wife, was born on May 6, 1969. Like Meri and Kody, she is an Earth sign, as her sun sign is Taurus.

However, at least according to astrology, Kody and Janelle might be a better match for each other. Taurus sun signs are known for being sensible, logical, and practical, so it’s no wonder that Janelle is often considered the least emotional of the Sister Wives stars.

However, unlike a match between two Capricorns, a Taurus and Capricorn relationship doesn’t usually include the same level of subtle competition. Instead, Capricorns often find the Taurus’s steadiness, loyalty, and security comforting. Tauruses like Janelle are also very affectionate, which can help to calm the ambitious Capricorn.

Christine Brown is an Aries

Born on Apr. 18, 1972, Kody’s third wife, Christine Brown, is an Aries.

Aries sun signs and Capricorn sun signs often come up against major personality differences in a romantic relationship – which anyone watching Kody and Christine on Sister Wives would agree with.

Aries signs are known for being optimistic, fun, energetic, excitable, and passionate, as well as short-tempered and impatient. A steady, even stubborn Capricorn might feel bowled over and even frustrated by the boundless energy and high-speed activity of a Fire sign like Aries.

A Capricorn like Kody might see an Aries like Christine as flighty and impulsive, while an Aries might see a Capricorn as boring, passive, or even a stick in the mud. It might be difficult for these signs to communicate effectively and relate to each other because they’re so very different.

Robyn Brown is a Libra

Robyn Brown, Kody’s fourth wife, was born on Oct. 9, 1978, making her a Libra.

Overall, a Libra-Capricorn relationship is considered an “average” match, according to astrology. There are both pros and cons to a relationship between a Capricorn and Libra sun sign.

Libra sun signs are known for being relationship-focused. They tend to avoid conflict, preferring to aim for harmony, peace, and diplomacy in all their interactions with others. However, they can sometimes be seen as underhanded or passive-aggressive because they want so much to be liked by all.

Capricorns, who are deeply money-minded, can also be frustrated by the indecisiveness and free spending of an Air sign like Robyn. (This calls Kody and Robyn’s extensive fight about homeownership on Sister Wives to mind.) They might also consider the Libra to be overly emotional and talkative, while a Libra might see the Capricorn as too reserved in expressing their feelings.

However, Libras and Capricorns like Robyn and Kody often trust each other implicitly and are faithful and loyal to each other. Both value marriage and family, so they often connect on that level.
