Hey.. What's Your Sign? ;)
I don't know about you guys, but whenever I meet someone new I want to know when their birthday is. That is really all you need to find out if you are astrologically compatible. With Valentine's Day coming up, this is the perfect time to wonder how compatible you are with certain people in your life.
Of course there are many different kinds of compatibility. You might be great friends, but be terrible together in a romantic relationship. Or you might be great together in your personal lives but you could never ever, in a million years, work together.
Here's a compatibility website a lot of people might be interested in. All you need to know are your sun signs.
Most websites like the one above will give you a short explanation that is based only on your sun sign. As I suggested in my last post, there is a lot more to it than that. To understand all aspects of a relationship you have to look at all the planets and how they go together. First of all, every sign is also an element:
FIRE: Aries, Leo, Sagittarius
WATER: Pisces, Cancer, Scorpio
AIR: Aquarius, Gemini, Libra
EARTH: Capricorn, Taurus, Virgo
The signs in the same element group are the most compatible. Another website you might want to check out for sun sign compatibility is at Tarot.com.
Sun signs definitely offer insight into relationships but the planet that rules love and relationships is Venus. You can find out what sign Venus was in when you were born easily at Astrodienst.com as well as the signs of the rest of your planets. If you and your partner have compatible Venus signs it is even better than just looking at the sun signs. Check out this website to find out more about your Venus sign.
Just like in individual astrology, when it is used for compatibility, it is important to look deeper than the surface to get truly helpful insight.
Don't get too discouraged if you aren't compatible with someone according to your charts. When you know the things you have to work on as a couple it is much easier to recognize why you might be having certain problems.
Just another way to use astrology and get to know yourself and the people close to you. So for now, Happy early Valentine's Day and happy dating!
