“Hey baby, what’s your sign?” No one really asks that, do they? At least not the way they do on television. Whether you’re into Astrology or not, chances are you want to know the Astrological sign of your potential mate. I won’t lie – I’ve sworn off dating fire signs for the rest of my life – but I realize now that having a fire sun sign doesn’t mean someone is all fire – that could be balanced out with a water moon or ascendant. Getting too technical? Let’s break it down:
Our sun signs do dictate a bit of our personality – what we present to the world. But not every Aries is going to skip off into the sunset with every Leo and not every Cancer will get on swimmingly with all Scorpios. Yet, the myth of the perfect match persists.
Birth/natal charts are telling and they can be a wealth of information when comparing the charts of two people to assess compatibility. But our compatibility with someone goes far beyond our sun signs matching up. That’s where comparing birth charts comes in — it can be illuminating, pointing out areas of strengths and potential difficulty you two may encounter. Your sun sign (and that of your love) should by no means be the deciding factor as to whether or not your relationship is “forever”. So the next time your stubborn Taurus self meets a flighty Sagittarius, don’t run away…yet. Learn more about his/her birth chart before making any decisions about Astrological compatibility.
The positions of Mercury – for communication — and Saturn – for stability – at your time of birth hold a lot of importance in regards to compatibility with someone. Venus, the planet of romance, is also important though surprisingly not as much so.
