Today I’m talking about super basic relationship astrology. Things that make people get along and not. This is more about figuring out long term compatibility, not about short term passion.

Astrology is based on the 4 elements (fire, earth, air, water) and 3 modalities (cardinal, fixed, mutable). Thus, 4×3 = 12 signs.

In relationships, the most important part is to make sure the Sun signs are harmonious. If they are, then you and your partner will get each other in a deep way and all other factors can be worked out. If your Sun signs don’t match, then it may be an uphill battle no matter how compatible the rest of your chart.

Part 1: Compatible elements
Earth signs and Water signs are harmonious.
Fire and Air are harmonious.
Earth and Water are not harmonious with Fire and Air.

Part 2: Compatible modalities
We know that Earth and Water get along. To refine this further, it’s better for a Cardinal Earth (Capricorn) to stay away from Cardinal Water (Cancer). Same for fixed. Fixed should stay away from other fixed. Mutable and mutable may be okay since they are adaptable and one can act as fixed while the other can act as cardinal.

Thus, each sign has 4 super compatible matches.

Compatible Signs
Aries: Leo, Aquarius, Gemini, Sagittarius
Taurus: Cancer, Capricorn, Virgo, Pisces
Gemini: Aries, Libra, Leo, Aquarius
Cancer: Taurus, Scorpio, Virgo, Pisces
Leo: Aries, Libra, Gemini, Sagittarius
Virgo: Cancer, Capricorn, Taurus, Scorpio
Libra: Leo, Aquarius, Gemini, Sagittarius
Scorpio: Cancer, Capricorn, Virgo, Pisces
Sagittarius: Aries, Libra, Leo, Aquarius
Capricorn: Taurus, Scorpio, Virgo, Pisces
Aquarius: Aries, Libra, Gemini, Sagittarius
Pisces: Cancer, Capricorn, Taurus, Scorpio

You can also look at the signs of the following for you and your partner to make a more harmonious fit.
Moon: for compatible emotional style
Venus: compatible love style, aka love language
Mars: compatible sex & energy style
Rising Sign: compatible public personas

The more things that are harmonious in both your charts, the better the fit.

There is advanced stuff like Synastry, which is putting your natal chart on top of your partner’s, to see how all the planets aspect with either. There are free websites that will do that for you. I’m not sure how important this level of detail is but you may like to do it.

Celebrity examples of Sun sign compatibility:
Louis CK: Virgo (earth, mutable)
Ex wife: Aquarius (air, fixed)
ended up in divorce

Bill Clinton: Leo (fire, fixed)
Hillary Clinton: Scorpio (water, fixed)
super incompatible.
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)
super compatible.
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)
Super compatible.
Ended up in divorce.
Just because Sun signs match doesn’t mean all will peachy.

Kevin’s current fiance: Leo (fire, fixed)
Not compatible.
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.

super compatible.
married, with kids, and work together.

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.
