Relationships: Your Best Matches by Astrological Sign
Understanding what makes two people astrologically compatible can be easier than it might seem. One of the key factors of compatibility in astrology is the use of elements to determine how well you are likely to get along with a person, either in love, friendship or business.
There are four elements that correspond to the zodiac signs.
These four elements are: Fire, Air, Water, Earth.
Simply put, you are more likely to have a harmonious relationship with a person of the same element.
The next best match would be the element that naturally goes with your own --
Fire with Air and Earth with Water.
Fire signs are: Aries, Leo and Sagittarius. This element desires freedom. Fire represents
strong wills and enthusiasm.
Air signs are: Gemini, Libra and Aquarius. This element desires freedom also, with a different emphasis. Air represents abstract thought.
Earth signs are: Taurus, Virgo and Capricorn.
This element needs security. Earth represents material and practical matters.
Water signs are: Scorpio, Pisces and Cancer.
This element needs security also, but with a different emphasis. Water
represents feeling and emotions.
The signs in opposition to your own will be where you will experience the most variance. This will be an intense relationship, but it could be either positive or negative.
Each sign has two other signs they are most incompatible with. An easy way to figure your least compatible signs is to start at your own sign and count to the third sign on either side of you. It's possible to get along with less-compatible signs -- there may simply be more pitfalls and difficulties in your way. This can be less important in the workplace, depending on the dynamics.
Equal co-workers will do better with these awkward mixes than will two people on different power levels. You will do better with work relationships that include your compatible or complementary element.
Romance is one thing; sexual chemistry is another. It is very possible to have an intense sexual relationship with a person of an opposing sign. But once the sparks die down, these relationships don't usually have what it takes to go the distance.
Fire and Water is a powerful mix in bed. Out of bed, these two strong-willed people will most likely not find lasting happiness together.
Another way to gauge compatibility is by assessing quadruplicities.
The three quadruplicities can be defined as ways of being creative. They are called :
Cardinal, Fixed and Mutable.
Cardinal signs: Aries, Cancer, Libra and Capricorn -- These prefer to initiate and create
Fixed signs: Taurus, Leo, Scorpio and Aquarius -- These signs prefer to stabilize or sustain what has been created or to resist and endure.
Mutable signs: Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius and Pisces. -- These signs attempt to alter or
adapt what has already been created.
Knowing another person's sun sign, can go a long way toward understanding what to expect from a relationship. It can give you the tools you need to make a relationship work, whether in the workplace, in the family or in the dating world.
