Astrology and Compatibility


Everyone has heard the old line “What?s your sign?”  While it is often used jokingly, there are many people who believe you can find a compatible partner based on his or her birth date and astrological sign.

Compatibility with a partner is based on many factors.  Many people believe that astrology is a very important one.

Astrology has to do with drawing connections between planetary positions and events here on Earth.  Some people believe all things are correlated to astrological phenomena and, therefore, make decisions based on horoscopes.

It is understandable, then, why so many people want to know if they?re picking the right partner based on his or her zodiac sign.  Astrology compatibility is complex and fascinating.

There are four elements (earth, air, fire and water) and every sign of the zodiac is correlated to one.

  • Fire signs: Sagit­tar­ius, Leo, Aries
  • Air signs: Gem­ini, Aquar­ius, Libra
  • Earth signs: Tau­rus, Capri­corn, Virgo
  • Water signs: Pisces, Can­cer, Scorpio

The best matches are the ones that are between the same element. Complementary elements are also considered good matches.  Fire and Air are complementary as are Earth and Water.

There is a bit more to it and it can get confusing and complicated if you are not an astrologer.  Luckily, all you have to do is take a peek at the charts below to get the answers you are looking for. First locate your birthday (and your partner?s) on the first chart and then take a look at the horoscope compatibility chart below!
