Astrological Compatibility

I’d like to make an astrological dating suggestion (applicable to ALL relationships actually related to compatibility and understanding others… (it’s called Synastry, in astrology)… 

This will help you understand how a person acts, thinks, operates… so you can better know their strengths and potential weaknesses, which are rooted in their astrology… An Astrology Natal Chart (Birth chart) is a Blueprint to your Soul… it really helps you understand people 

Each zodiac sign is associated with an element (Fire, Air, Water, Earth) and a Modality (Cardinal, Mutable, Fixed)…. 

Modalities

– Cardinal signs are “starters”… get things going. Think of a sprinter out of the gate with a burst of energy… (known to lose momentum after things get started… ready to pass on to next)
– Mutable signs are malleable and flexible and adjustable to different situations, go with the flow…
– Fixed signs don’t like to change. They can be stubborn and find comfort in routine and security, they do not like changes… (great, dependable worker bees, dependable, reliable)… 

Elements

– Fire signs: passionate, action oriented sign often expressive and bold and simply “fiery”…
– Air signs are the thinkers and the intellectuals/cerebral people who’s mind is always going and yearns to understand and know and learn 
– Earth signs are grounded and stable, they like stability, dependability, rational understanding, material comfort and rewards. Tangible evidence
– Water signs rule emotions… They feel things deeply

There are Ten planets which are in charge of different parts of your personality. For example: 

– Sun represents your sense of self, the core essence of who you are
– Your Ascendant is known as your “Rising sign”, which is how the world sees you at first impression… it’s how you present to the world… the mask you wear…. 
– Mercury rules how you communicate
– Saturn is the planet of discipline and structure
– Moon rules your emotions and how you are at your most vulnerable and your shadow side 
– Venus represents Love

Each planet has a different “personality” which is the associated zodiac sign.

So, my Sun is Libra (Cardinal Air), but I have a Leo Moon (Fixed Fire) and I’m a Sagittarius Rising (Mutable Fire), Venus in Leo (Fixed Fire)… 

I won’t even get into the placement of each planet in houses here… 

My point that I wish to make in this mini-astrology lesson is that I encourage you to pull charts for the people in your life to understand them and to help you relate to them.

If someone has many planets in their chart which are heavy Fire and Cardinal signs,…. they will likely be bold and adventurous and direct and take action and can sometimes seem volatile or unpredictable or sometimes harsh… they may get easily bored with the same boring routine every day of their life… 

Conversely, if someone has many planets in Fixed and earth Signs… they will love routine and material comforts and will find comfort in that… A heavily weighted fire person may find that boring… 

Earth signs like material and security… Water is emotional… Air is thought… Fire is action… 

There is no “Right” or “Wrong” about any combination of signs… it’s more the fact that each sign has a Light side and a Shadow side … understanding them for who they are and then managing your interpersonal communication with them accordingly. Some aspects will be more compatible than others… but then again, sometimes opposites attract too… 

Understanding the other person and communicating is key.
