Zodiac Sign Compatibility and Aspects

Have you ever wondered why you have a certain chemistry with some zodiac signs and cannot stand to be around people from another zodiac sign? This could be for a myriad of reasons but one of the main reasons may be because that sign is trining, sextiling squaring or opposing your zodiac sign. I know these terms probably mean nothing to you so let me explain…Astrology is much more than signs and generic personality characteristics. An astrological (natal) chart is a snapshot of how the universe looked the moment you were born which is a key to unlocking your personality, strengths, challenges, love life, career and much more. But the natal chart is just the beginning. When I do relationship/compatibility readings, I pair one person’s chart with another person’s chart to see how the planets in each of their charts “talk” to each other which reveals how compatible the two people are. I can take that one step further and generate a composite chart which in layman’s terms is a combination of two people’s charts combined into one which is the “personality” of the relationship itself.

Compatibility is not just limited to romantic partners. It can include family, friends, coworkers and acquaintances. And we all have friends, family, coworkers that we absolutely adore and others that get on our nerves! Here’s a quick breakdown of the main astrological aspects and how they are related to each sign. Now you can see which signs you can be compatible with or want to strangle!

Astrological aspects

 

Trine: Signs that are 120 degrees apart. There is an ease and flow to these relationships. Energy is the same and there is a mutual understanding. #onthesamepage

Sextile: Pretty good chemistry. These signs are different from each other but their elements complement each other so it’s pretty easy for them to get along. 60 degrees apart. 

Square: Ummm….possible tension and misunderstandings. These signs share quadruplicity (I won’t get into this yet) so they share some common ground but have very different energy. 90 degrees apart.

Opposition: These signs are sitting across from each other in the sky (180 degrees apart) which can create tension or an instant attraction. Or an instant attraction that eventually turns into tension!

Sextile: Gemini, Aquarius
Fire needs air to burn so Gemini and Aquarius can be good friends and/or potential lovers to Aries.

Opposition: Libra
Opposites attract so Aries and Libra may instantly be intrigued by each other. Aries has what Libra lacks and vice versa. Aries is independent and decisive and Libras can be co-dependent and indecisive. This may drive Aries crazy OR turn them on so they can exercise their natural leadership abilities and make the decisions in the relationship.

Opposition: Scorpio
Opposites attract so Taurus and Scorpio may instantly be intrigued by each other. Taurus has what Scorpio lacks and vice versa. Taureans are determined, routine lovers and stubborn. Scorpios are also very determined and stubborn and here is where the problem lies. Both signs are very set in their ways so waiting for either one to apologize first is like watching paint dry. However, their romantic and sex life is off the charts as these are the two most sensual signs in the zodiac.

Square: Leo, Aquarius
Leo and Aquarius both have very different energy than Taurus. All three signs are stubborn and fixed in their ways. Leo likes the be the center of attention and Taurus is more laid back and down to earth. Aquarians are eccentric and march to the beat of their own drum so Taurus may be a little too predictable fort hem.

As you can see, these signs have similar qualities but their tendency to be noncommittal can keep these two from setting down with each other.

Square: Virgo, Pisces
Virgo and Pisces both have very different energy than Gemini. All three signs can be go with the flow – Virgo being the least go with the flow but more flexible than the other two earth signs. Gemini and Virgo share a sign ruler, Mercury so they are both thinkers. However, Virgo usually needs more relationship security than Gemini is willing to offer. Gemini and Pisces can be good friends but both sign’s moods are constantly changing and a relationship between the two may be all over the place.

Square: Libra, Aries

All three signs are natural initiators and are not afraid to go after what they want/begin new projects but that’s where the similarity ends. Libra being an air sign loves to move and shake around town, meet new people and keep things surface level. Cancers may take a while to open up to people, are not so easy to know and usually prefer to stay in rather than float all around town.

Capricorn is status driven and will make connections based on what people can do for them where as Libra loves to meet new people and/or discuss ideas.

People born under these two signs need to be very mature and self-aware to make this combination work. Sex life though? Off the charts.

Square: Aquarius, Leo
Aquarius and Leo both have very different energy than Scorpio. All three signs are fixed in their ways which presents a problem. Aquarians are eccentric, march to the beat of their own drum people and will laugh in Scorpio’s face if they dare to try to “control” them. Leo is a very strong sign and so is Scorpio.
