Love Astrology & Love Compatibility
LOVE is the #1 reason people consultult astrologers — for answers in love, relationships, and compatibility. It’s human nature to want to believe that love is destined, that somewhere out in the grand scheme of things there’s ONE person, just for you. The truth of the matter is that the secret to romance is in the stars, and when approached the right way, astrology is a useful tool to get you some insight when it comes to love compatibility (and that all-important sexual chemistry too!)
Love and desire, why one person turns you on and another doesn’t, can be confusing enough. Especially when you’ve got the hots and the other person is just a cold shoulder; or maybe someone wants to woo and court you, and you’re just not interested. However, understanding the 12 signs of the zodiac can help when it comes to finding a good match. You’re looking for the right person to share your heart — and your bed — so there’s no such thing as too much information!
The Human Factor in Love Compatibility
The first thing to understand is that there’s no such thing as perfect compatibility. This has less to do with astrology and more to do with human nature. People come with baggage, history and hangups. Using astrology can help you to understand where that history might be hanging, so that you can see if this relationship has the potential to work.
Any relationship — even if you never learn to read an astrology chart — is going to function best when you understand each other’s strengths and weaknesses and when your willingness to be happy overtakes your need to be right. You can choose to be compatible with anyone, regardless of their zodiac sign. It all comes down to personal preference. So do you really need astrology for love and compatibility?
The Astrological Asset
Astrology can give you an advantage in love. Zodiac signs are broken down into 4 elements: Fire, Earth, Air, and Water.
- The Fire Signs: Aries, Leo, and Sagittarius
- The Earth Signs: Taurus, Virgo, and Capricorn
- The Air Signs: Gemini, Libra, and Aquarius
- The Water Signs: Cancer, Scorpio, and Pisces
Why is this important? Well, what happens if you pour water onto fire? You get steam, and then the fire goes out. This can happen to a relationship if you pour a water sign onto fire, too! Add water to the earth and you nourish the soil, but if there’s too much water you get a mudslide. It’s the same between water signs and earth signs. Earth signs can smother fire; can scorch earth signs. Air signs can blow earth signs away into dust, or they can add fuel to fire signs so they burn brightly. When you understand how the elements work in nature, you can get a pretty good idea as to how the different astrological elements interact with each other.
There's more to these signs than just their elemental properties, though. Each sign is also a part of a quadruplicity which, just like the elements, come with its own set of behavioral quirks. There are 4 elements and 3 quadruplicities. 4 x 3 = 12. That means that no one sign of the zodiac is the same element and the same quadruplicity. It’s another reason why the secret to romance is in the stars, and part of what makes us all unique.
Cardinal Signs / Qualities (Aries, Cancer, Libra, Capricorn)
Cardinal signs are the leaders of the zodiac. And as such, they're often perceived to be the most successful — but always remember that sun sign and other factors in the birth chart need to be considered.
Fixed Signs / Qualities (Taurus, Leo, Scorpio, Aquarius)
Fixed signs can be stubborn, which can be both a blessing or a bane. They're often seen to be bombastic, obstinate, and rigid, but their loyalty also brings stability and security to relationships.
Mutable Signs / Qualities (Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius, Pisces)
Cardinal signs are the leaders of the zodiac. Because of this, they're often perceived to be the most successful quadruplicity — but remember, it also depends on their sign and other factors in the birth chart.
Using Energy From the Planets for Romance, Love & Compatibility
There’s a lot to be learned about someone by knowing their sun sign, like their reliability, dependability, impulsiveness, attention to detail, and much more. Still, when it comes to using astrology to find a partner, the key is to take it very lightly. It takes more than just understanding someone’s sun sign qualities to know whether they’re going to be a suitable partner for you. If you’re really serious about this, you’ll want to invest in a full relationship compatibility report and examine all the astrological factors beyond just comparing sun signs. Yes, the secret to romance is in the stars. But the planets only influence things; they don’t carve things in stone and they don’t take away free will or the right to choose. People are always going to be people — and that’s what makes us such a fascinating study!
