Testing Astrology Compatibility In Relationships

Astrology compatibility generally comes to the scene in the understanding of relationships with people. This aspect of astrology covers areas like people's personality traits, their basic nature, their needs and wants with respect to career and personal life, the chemistry level they exhibit with another zodiac sign, and other details pertaining to their behavior in love and work.

How It Works?

The compatibility is determined by using various facets of astrology like sun signs, moon signs, twelve zodiac influences, ten planetary influences, and other such things. They might seem alien to the common person, but for an astrologer, these are the basics of astrology compatibility.

Each zodiac sign matches up with one of the 4 elements - air, water, fire, and earth. The 12 signs are distributed among the elements on the basis of the match. For example, air signs are Libra, Gemini, and Aquarius. Water signs are Pisces, Scorpio, and Cancer. Fire signs are Leo, Aries, and Sagittarius. Earth signs are Capricorn, Virgo, and Taurus.

Each element influences the behavior of the person with a particular sun sign. People with air signs are thinkers, dreamers, and brimming with ideas. People with water signs are moody, emotional, creative, and have a strong intuition. People with fire signs are creative, aggressive, and with high energy and passion. People with earth signs are down-to-earth, levelheaded, materialistic, and with a realistic approach to life.

As a person's behavior is influenced by these elements, when two different people meet, the elements influencing their signs also meet. What happens then? This is what astrology compatibility finds out.

A lot of common sense is also involved in determining the compatibility between two individuals. Let's take certain examples:

  • Air nurtures Fire - people with air sign are dreamers. They may encourage people with fire sign, who are creative.
  • Air blows the Earth - people with air sign may blow away or discourage the practicalities of people with earth sign.
  • Air flows over Water - this may prove to be an imbalanced relationship where air sign dominates over water sign.
  • Water and Earth douses Fire - the intuitive nature of water sign and the sensibility of earth sign can pacify or "tame" the aggressiveness of Fire sign.
  • When two water signs meet, there can be an intensely emotional relationship, as both are equally moody.
  • When two air signs meet, there might be a clash of ideas and dreams or thinking.
  • When two fire signs meet, it can be a highly passionate or aggressive relationship.
  • When two earth signs meet, it can be a stable relationship, which may tilt towards monotony.

There are many more such interesting combinations in astrology compatibility. There are not one, but many factors that have to be considered in order to tell whether two people are compatible with each other or not.

How It Helps?

Testing the level of compatibility helps in enhancing the quality of a relationship by finding the problem areas and avoiding mistakes that can kill a relationship. It can also help a person come out of a bad relationship.

However, astrology compatibility is not to be taken as a carving on stone. People change. Besides, every relationship requires effort to maintain its spark, irrespective of the sun sign of the people involved.
