Tell Me Who I’m Compatible With! This is one of the most frequent requests I receive. Instead of boring you with worn out compatibility rules, here’s the real story. . . . The raw, unvarnished truth is that any sign can work wonders with any other sign — if both parties are passionately committed to make the relationship succeed. That means you can toss out scary warnings about Scorpio and Leo or Cancer and Aries. There are crumbs of truth in these antediluvian laws of compatibility, but they barely skim the surface of our fast paced, long-lived modern world.
The old rule of thumb was that Fire Signs should stick together or mix with Air Signs, and Water Signs should hang together or invite Earth Signs into their lives. Most of us are too complex to fall neatly into ancient cookie cutter molds. The old ways have value, but only address a small part of the overall picture. If we stick to the old rule of Fire and Air or Water and Earth, we ignore powerful relationships that stimulate amazing transformation, personal development, and spiritual awakening. These life changing relationships usually involve Fire with Water or Earth and Air with Earth or Water. These blends force each friend or lover to look deeply into himself, ask questions, and connect with the divine. These combinations are demanding, intense, and far from easy. But BOY! Are they ever worth the effort!
For example, consider Virgo (an earth sign) and Aries (a fire sign). By traditional standards, these two signs have a slim to none chance of making it. But modern astrologers know better. The attraction between these two is high on chemistry, passionate (almost addictive) attraction, and soul connection. This blend is not for faint-hearted people who don’t like to get “too excited”. It’s for soulful seekers, willing to go deeper to find profound emotional and sexual fusion.
Another successful blend that shouldn’t work according to old-time standards is Libra (an air sign) and Cancer (a water sign). There are certain pitfalls associated with this arrangement, but it can — and does — develop into an ongoing luscious romance for many, many people.
Don’t be discouraged by stereotypes. Astrology changes and folds in new knowledge, just like science and medicine, and modern astrologers recognize that the rules of compatibility are continually being revised. Feel free to continue sending me your stories concerning compatibility.
