Astrology Love and Compatibility


Hunter Lejano, Journalist

One of the things the public loves to ask is what sign they are compatible with. With astrology the answer is that it depends on each individual birth chart, but some aspects between the two sun signs can give a clue to the potential for success. A sun sign is an individual’s overall astrological identity. However, there are multiple ideas to ponder, starting with the most basic kind of data. The simple sun sign connections.

As a reminder each sign has a gender, element, and quality. Gender having to do with how sensitive and impressionable one is. Elements such as fire, earth, air, and water. Fire signs get people off the ground quickly. Earth signs do things in a slow and considerate manner. Air signs like to talk and analyze. Lastly, water signs act according to their feelings at any given moment. The qualities such as cardinal, fixed, and mutable, are a very important personality factor.

The same sign conjunction is obvious that people understand others with the same sign, but this connection is more common as a family connection or for a friendship more than love. For two signs away on either side of the sun sign the connection is easy. Both signs are compatible elements, such as fire and air signs, or earth and water signs. There is often a similarity between how these people think and behave. The three signs away on either side of the sun sign may have a tense connection. Although the signs share the same quality. The passion and attraction are very present. For four signs away on either side of the sun sign could be the ideal relationship. The two signs share a gender and element, so they have much in common but the quality will be different. This links the fire signs of Aries, Leo, and Sagittarius; the earth signs of Taurus, Virgo, and Capricorn; the air signs of Gemini, Libra, and Aquarius, and the water signs of Cancer, Scorpio, and Pisces. Five signs away on either side of the sun sign is unlikely to work out.

The opposite sign is a common connection for lovers, partners, and friends to be a very successful connection. These signs share the same gender and quality, and although their elements are different, they are compatible with each other, for instance, fire and air, or earth and water. Depending on the factors in both birth charts, however the connection could be extremely good or bad. The oppositions are Aries and Libra, Taurus and Scorpio, Gemini and Sagittarius, Cancer and Capricorn, Leo and Aquarius, and Virgo and Pisces.

“There’s so many positives when asking others about astrology. They know a lot about their own signs which helps me get a better understanding of that person. Whether it’s with love, friendship, or an acquaintance, it can help you figure out how maybe you might approach that person and figure out if you actually like that person.” Maya Clausmen(11) included.
