Love Compatibility Horoscopes
Love compatibility, as well as compatibility in other relationships, is thought to depend at least partly on the horoscopes of those involved. In fact, in some places, this belief is still so strongly held that people consult professional astrologers when arranging marriages, to ensure or at least facilitate the love compatibility match of the prospective spouses.
According to people who believe in astrology, everybody has a horoscope. Apparently, the stellar and planetary influences present at the date and time of your birth can have a marked effect on your personality, luck, destiny, and love life. You can also take into account the way the horoscopes of the different parties in a relationship.
Two of the most popular horoscope systems in the world are based on Chinese and Babylonian astrology. The Chinese one rotates signs yearly, while the latter rotates them monthly. Both systems have something to say about love compatibility. People frequently consult them to see which signs “go well” together. For instance, in the Babylonian horoscope, some good pairings include Pisces and Scorpio, as well as Taurus and Capricorn. As for Chinese astrology, the Rat and Dragon are good combinations.
The rule of thumb is that you will probably make a good love match with somebody whose sign is that of five years before or five years after your own. Interestingly, Chinese astrology also includes a lot of information on other types of relationships, such as business and family. Information based on the other type of horoscope does not focus on non-romantic relationships as much.
You will find many web sites and magazines who give horoscope-based love advice, as well as many mass-market books on the subject. However, many experts on astrology will tell you that such advice is very limited.
These publications tend to treat all members of the same sign in a very generalized, uniform manner. However, a reading by an expert is likely to be much more specific, including matters of love compatibility. If you are planning to make an exceedingly important decision (as in marriage, not just a date), it makes sense to consult an expert.
Importance of elements in astrology
Groups of signs in astrology share certain characteristics that are classified according to four earthly elements fire, air, water and earth. It helps explain why some signs are more compatible than others.
The Fire signs are Aries (March 21 to April 19), Leo (July 23 to August 22) and Sagittarius (November 22 - December 21). Fire people are leaders, dynamic. They light up everything around them.
Because Fire needs Air to exist, Fire signs are most compatible with the Air signs. Water is anathema to Fire and a Water person could try to dampen the dynamism and enthusiasm that defines Fire.
The Air signs are Aquarius (January 20 to February 18), Gemini (May 21 to June 21) and Libra (September 23 - October 22). These are the idea signs, the air that breathes a spark into a flame. They can’t be tied down. They require freedom of movement and thought.
The water signs of Cancer (June 22 to July22), Scorpio (October 23 to November 21) and Pisces (February 19 to March 20) are characterized by the phrase still waters run deep. They’re emotional and sensitive, given to deep thoughts and conversations. Just as water can blur an image or hide secrets within its depths, so do Water signs have secretive emotions and abilities. The Water signs are most compatible with Earth signs.
The Earth signs are Taurus (April 20 - May 20), Virgo (August 23 to September 22) and Capricorn (December 22 to January 19). They are stable and consistent. While not as compassionate as the water signs, they are nonetheless nurturing. They can be rigid (stick in the mud) and easily stuck in routines. They are most compatible with Water signs, as Water is necessary for the Earth to properly nurture growing things. Earth helps Water contain itself, which is often necessary for survival on the planet.
