Today I’m talking about super basic relationship astrology shit. Things that make people get along and not.
Astrology is based on the 4 elements (fire, earth, air, water) and 3 modalities (cardinal, fixed, mutable). Thus, 4×3 = 12 signs.
Super basic relationship stuff:
In general, Earth and Water are harmonious.
Fire and Air are harmonious.
If the Sun signs match, then everything else will be manageable.
If the Sun signs don’t match, then it will be an uphill battle.
You can also look at the signs of the following for you and your partner:
Moon (Emotional Style)
Venus (Love Style)
Mars (Sex & Energy Style)
Rising Sign (Public personality)
You can refine this further.
We know that Earth and Water get along.
But it’s better for a Cardinal Earth (Capricorn) to stay away from Cardinal Water (Cancer). Same for fixed and mutable. Fixed should stay away from other fixed and mutable away from other mutable.
You can also do advanced stuff like Synastry, which is putting your natal chart on top of your partner’s, to see how the planets aspect with either. There are free websites that will do that for you.
Some examples of Sun signs:
Louis CK: Virgo (earth, mutable)
Ex wife: Aquarius (air, fixed)
ended up in divorce
Bill Clinton: Leo (fire, fixed)
Hillary Clinton: Scorpio (water, fixed)
still together but probably not as close and intimate as if their signs were harmonious.
Al Gore: Aries (fire, cardinal)
Tipper Gore: Leo (fire, fixed)
ended up in separation after 40yrs of marriage. I would call this a successful union. 40yrs is a long ass time.
Kevin Hart: Cancer (water, cardinal)
Ex wife: Pisces (water, mutable)
Ended up in divorce.
Just because Sun signs match doesn’t mean all will peachy.
Kevin’s current fiance: Leo (fire)
Will see what the future holds. Maybe they have other harmonious aspects in their full chart or they will work hard to make it work.
Triple H: Leo (fire, fixed)
Stephanie: Libra (air, cardinal)
married, with kids, and work together.
Vince McMahon: Virgo (earth, mutable)
Linda McMahon: Libra (air, cardinal)
married, business partners, though it seems vince takes care of all work related things and linda is in the background. vince has publicly said he’s cheated on his wife.
Dwayne Johnson: Taurus (earth, fixed)
Exwife: Sagittarius (fire, mutable)
divorced but on good terms, have kid together. still business partners.
Dwayne’s Current Fiance: Virgo (earth, mutable)
Tina Fey: Taurus (earth, fixed)
Husband: Capricorn (earth, cardinal)
Married. Work together on their netflix show Kimmy Schmidt
Amy Poehler: Virgo (earth, mutable)
Super compatible with Tina
Jim Gaffigan: Cancer (Water, Cardinal)
Jeannie Gaffigan: Pisces (Water, Mutable)
Married. 5 kids. They’re always together and work together.
Tom Segura: Aries (Fire, Cardinal)
Christina Pazsitzky: Gemini (Air, Mutable)
Married. They even do a podcast together.
My mother: Cancer (Water, cardinal)
Father: Libra (Air, cardinal)
They should divorce but will never do it due to old-school tradition.
Remember that the full natal chart and synastry aspects will reveal more details than looking only at sun sign compatibility.
If your energies are incompatible, all hope is not lost.
It just means more work will be needed to get things on track.
Husband and wife energy medicine pioneers Donna Eden (Pisces/Water) and David Feinstein (Capricorn/Earth by only one day, close to Sagittarius/Fire) wrote a book called the Energies of Love. They are opposite personality types, Donna being a free spirit hippie type and David is a suit wearing intellectual type.
This book details their difficulties and how they overcame them by using energy medicine. Aligning their chakras, meridians, aura, etc.
