Sign Compatibility - How Astrology has the Answers to Your Relationships
Sign Compatibility - This is Just the Beginning Folks !
Taurus and Capricorns, Aries and Leos, is this Sign
Basic astrological compatibility starts with the sun signs and their elements. Earth signs
are compatible with other earth signs, air with air etc....also, every other sign is compatible with the sun sign. Gemini (air sign) with Leo (fire),
and Virgo (earth) with scorpio (water) for instance. These are the basic building blocks to sign compatibility.
Here's a simplified list of sign compatibility:
Fire Signs - Aries, Leo, Sagittarius
Earth Signs - Taurus, Virgo, Capricorn
Air Signs - Gemini, Libra, Aquarius
Water Signs - Cancer, Scorpio, Pisces
Fire and Air have co-sign compatibility Water and Earth have co-sign compatibility
Astrology reports can help you to unravel this mystery! with even more information about your relationships.
But first lets get you started with some examples of signs that are compatible because of similar elements AND THEN let's see how we can go even further...first ...an example from a fictitious couple's compatibility report.
Luke has Sun in Aquarius and Blair has her sun in Gemini -(both Air Signs)
You have an excellent intellectual rapport. You spark each other's wit and you love to toss ideas back and forth. Intellectual companionship
is important to both of you, and in this relationship you have found a partner
whose conversation and company you enjoy. The emotional and physical connection between you may, or may not be, strong. You may very well
feel more like brother and sister, or best friends, than lovers: this will be true if there is little emphasis on romance and emotional bonding
in the rest of this report. Shared viewpoints, common interests, and social activities are key elements in your relationship. (for instance;
sun to moon, sun to venus, venus to moon, mercury to sun/moon/venus etc.)
That's an example of two people with air sign compatibility. Here's an example of two people with mutual fire signs.
Enthusiasm, a sense of adventure, and high spirited play infuse your relationship. You both feel you can be yourselves fully with one another
you don't have to tone down any of your exuberance and energy, the way you might with someone else. In fact, you inspire and vitalize one another. John (the aries) sometimes clashes or competes with other stron individuals, but Karen is tolerant, not threatened, and doesn't take the bait.
Here's an example of sun signs that are not particularly compatible -
Sun in Aries and Sun in Cancer -
Lisa (aries) often feels smothered by demands of family and even friends. Bob on the other hand, is very devoted to family needs and the inner,
emotional needs of others. Lisa may, without realizing it, selfishly accept Bob's nurturing and giving, while contributing relatively little to the relationship on an emotional level. Lisa's need for autonomy and independence often conflicts with Bob's needs for closeness intimacy, and mutual dependency. Lisa seems selfish, impersonal, and
indifferent to Bob at times, and Bob may feel too needy and emotionally sensitive compared to Lisa. Lisa can learn compassion from Bob, and
he can learn to be more independent, but it's likely to be a rough road at times with much adjustment needed on both sides.
The other part of sun sign compatibility is whether the suns are in a trine aspect, which is the amount of degrees between each sign,
( remember there is 360░ in the zodiac, and when you were born your sun sign was assigned a particular degree) and a harmonious - trine (120 ░) aspect would denote a real kinship or ease in the relationship. To find this out you need to know the date (ex. 11th, 15th, 22nd) someone was born. If the other person was born within 8 days of the
date (not necessarily the month) you were born, then you most likely would have a trine between you.
Of course -that is if - this person was born with the same element as you ; fire, earth, air, or water.
If this person was born in a complementary element (fire/air)(earth/water) then you would check to see if you had a sextile aspect (60 ░) between
your sun signs. This too has a beneficial ease to the relationship.
This ADDS to the compatibility. Here's a couple examples of how this adds to the report.
Sun trine Sun - Your basic aims and approach to life are in harmony, and the mutual respect you feel forms the basis of an excellent friendship
or partnership. You feel understood, appreciated, recognized, and affirmed by one another. You stimulate, vitalize, motivate, and believe in each other.
Now that was a harmonious aspect between sun signs, now let's take a look at what it looks like when two signs are NOT in a harmonious aspect.
Here's an example of the added stress to incompatible signs that are in a square aspect
Your relationship is dynamic and energizing. You challenge each other to grow and develop, but unfortunately the process tends to be abrasive
and frustrating. The differences in your personalities that are described at the beginning of chapter 1 deserve careful reading and attention because if not understood and handled properly, they can lead to mutual frustration.
And boy can it !!! this was actually taken from my compatibility report with my significant other. If i were to go strictly from this aspect i probably wouldn't have fallen in love and had a relationship. Although sun sign compatibility is the beginning to understanding your connection, there are many other factors to consider, and it's those factors that kept us together.
Moon to moon, sun to moon, venus to mars, Ascendant to venus/moon/mars, and the aspects
made between these planets. These are all to be considered in the overall compatibility.
Then there's Saturn. Saturn is the planet of frustration, delay, inhibitions, restriction, if aspected stressfully. If aspected harmoniously you have commitment, longevity and stability. Look at this planet and the aspects it makes to your planets.
There is also the chart of the relationship called the composite
chart, and there's a wealth of information about the relationship itself
and what to expect from it, and what it's eventual outcome may be.
So in conclusion, the sun sign compatibility is just the beginning of your overall compatibility. I hope this article peaked your curiousity
to know more about your relationships.
