Astrology and The Influence of Distant Cosmic Objects.
If you’re interested in astrology, then you know how interesting (and revealing) it can be to read about who you might score a date with, or connect with on a friendship level, according to your sign.
But what about when it comes to the zodiac sign you should marry? That can require a much deeper look into horoscope compatibility for marriage, including the traits from other signs that match up best with your own.
Of course, it can be slightly discouraging to do a deep dive into your sign, only to find out you and your partner don’t mix on an astrological level. Or that you and a potential love interest might not see eye-to-eye. But that obviously doesn’t mean your relationship is doomed, or that something long-term couldn’t work out.
In A Nutshell!
There are 12 zodiac signs, and each sign has its own strengths and weaknesses, its own specific traits, desires, and attitude towards life and people. By analyzing the projection of the position of planets, and the Sun and the Moon on the Ecliptic at the moment of birth. Astrology can give us a glimpse of a person’s basic characteristics, preferences, flaws, and fears.
Basics of the four elements – Air, Fire, Water, and Earth.
Water signs are exceptionally emotional and ultra-sensitive. They are highly intuitive and they can be as mysterious as the ocean itself. Water signs love profound conversations and intimacy. They rarely do anything openly and are always there to support their loved ones. The Water Signs are Cancer, Scorpio, and Pisces.
Fire signs tend to be passionate, dynamic, and temperamental. They get angry quickly, but they also forgive easily. They are adventurers with immense energy. They are physically very strong and are a source of inspiration for others. Fire signs are intelligent, self-aware, creative, and idealistic people, always ready for action. The Fire Signs are Aries, Leo, and Sagittarius.
Earth signs are “grounded” and the ones that bring us down to earth. They are mostly conservative and realistic, but they can also be very emotional. They are connected to our material reality and can be turned into material goods. They are practical, loyal, and stable and they stick by their people through hard times. The Earth Signs are Taurus, Virgo, and Capricorn.
Air signs are rational, social, and love communication and relationships with other people. They are thinkers, friendly, intellectual, communicative, and analytical. They love philosophical discussions, social gatherings, and good books. They enjoy giving advice, but they can also be very superficial. The Air Signs are Gemini, Libra, and Aquarius.
Aries loves to be number one, so it’s no surprise that these audacious rams are the first sign of the zodiac. Bold and ambitious, Aries dives headfirst into even the most challenging situations (which is appropriate, since the body part associated with Aries is the head).
Like their fellow fire signs, Leo and Sagittarius, Aries is a passionate, motivated, and confident leader who builds community with their cheerful disposition and relentless determination. Uncomplicated and direct in their approach, they often get frustrated by exhaustive details and unnecessary nuances. They like things quick and dirty, a temperament also reflected in their sexual proclivities.
You should know that they can be a bit impulsive. They tend to say or do things before thinking them completely through, but it’s mainly because they’re the perfect combination of fearless and carefree. While they might act on their impulses, they are a breath of fresh air and constant energy.
Taurus is an earth sign represented by the bull. Like their celestial spirit animal, Taureans enjoy relaxing in serene, bucolic environments, surrounded by soft sounds, soothing aromas, and succulent flavors. Taurus is ruled by Venus, the enchanting planet that governs love, beauty, and money.
Taurus’s Venusian influence makes this earth sign the most sensual of the zodiac: These cosmic oxen are enchanted by any physical manifestation of comfort and luxury. Pleasure is a necessity for epicurean Taureans and they feel most content when pampered. (Taurus governs the neck, so neck caresses are especially irresistible to these bulls.)
You should know that they’re very stuck in their ways. They are stubborn to the core, and if you’re trying to change the way they do or see things, you should stop while you’re ahead. They won’t start eating breakfast because you tell them it’s the most important meal of the day, and they won’t change up their fitness routine because you say it’s good for them to try new things.
They like the way they do things, and they have no intention of changing that. You can’t change their mind or their behavior, but you can always count on them to be there for you when you need them to be.
Have you ever been so busy that you wished you could clone yourself just to get everything done? That’s the Gemini experience in a nutshell. Appropriately symbolized by the celestial twins, this air sign was interested in so many pursuits that it had to double itself. Because of Geminis’ intrinsic duality, they’re often falsely misrepresented as two-faced. In reality, however, Gemini rarely has a hidden agenda.
Playful and intellectually curious, Gemini is constantly juggling a variety of passions, hobbies, careers, and friend groups. They are the social butterflies of the zodiac: These quick-witted twins can talk to anyone about anything. Find them buzzing between happy hours, dinner parties, and dance floors.
You should know that they’re extremely indecisive. They won’t be able to decide whether they want to live in an apartment or a house, and if they do they won’t be able to decide on the furniture to fill it. They’re not sure if they want two children or three and they’re not completely certain if they want to add a dog somewhere along the way. They can’t make up their minds and pressuring them to won’t help either.
Cancer is a cardinal water sign. Represented by the crab, this oceanic crustacean seamlessly weaves between the sea and shore, representing Cancer’s ability to exist in both emotional and material realms. Cancers are highly intuitive and their psychic abilities manifest in tangible spaces: For instance, Cancers can effortlessly pick up the energies in a room.
These crabs are highly sensitive to their environments, as well as extremely self-protective. Much like their celestial spirit animal, Cancers are shielded by hard, external shells. At first, these crabs may be perceived as cold or distant. With time, though, Cancers reveal their gentle nature, genuine compassion, and mystical capabilities. Just don’t be surprised if it takes a while to get to know them.
You should know that they put their family first and that they count their friends as a family too. They would do anything for the people they love, and they care for them sometimes better than they care for themselves. Sometimes you’ll come second, but it doesn’t mean they don’t love you, it just means their family needs them, and they’re going to be there.
Roll out the red carpet, because Leo has arrived. Leo is represented by the lion, and these spirited fire signs are the kings and queens of the celestial jungle. They’re delighted to embrace their royal status: Vivacious, theatrical, and passionate, Leos love to bask in the spotlight and celebrate themselves.
These lions are natural leaders and they enjoy cultivating friendships and romances that are artistically and creatively inspired. Playful Leos have no problem leaning into drama-fueled romances that are perfectly suited for the tabloids. (In fact, they may even prefer them.) After all, every Leo perceives him or herself as a celebrity. These astrological divas never get tired of lavish dinners, exclusive parties, or decadent designer wear.
You should know that they like to be the center of attention. They like everything to go their way, and they tend to be more concerned with themselves than with others. They’re a bit self-centered, but they are confident and strong and can do anything they set their mind to.
Virgo is an earth sign historically represented by the goddess of wheat and agriculture, an association that speaks to Virgo’s deep-rooted presence in the material world. Virgos are logical, practical, and systematic in their approach to life. This earth sign is a perfectionist at heart and isn’t afraid to improve skills through diligent and consistent practice.
Virgo rules the digestive system, which makes these earth signs especially attuned to the ingredients that make up a whole — in food and in everything else. They’re hyper-aware of every detail.
You should know that they overthink EVERYTHING. They are careful and meticulous and they will never ever ‘just wing it.’ They like to have everything planned out because they tend to think of the worst-case scenario, and they want to make sure that never happens. You might think they’re a bit of a wet blanket, but they’ll always make you feel safe and secure.
Libra is an air sign represented by the scales (interestingly, the only inanimate object of the zodiac), an association that reflects Libra’s fixation on balance and harmony. Libra is obsessed with symmetry and strives to create equilibrium in all areas of life. These air signs are the aesthetes of the zodiac:
Ruled by Venus, the planet that governs love, beauty, and money, Libras adore high art, intellectualism, and connoisseurship. Suave Libras need to surround themselves with stunning objects and create environments that reflect their exquisite tastes. Accordingly, these air signs make excellent designers, decorators, art critics, and stylists.
While Libra’s opposite sign, Aries, represents “me,” Libra symbolizes “we.” Relationships are paramount for Libras, who find balance in companionship. They love harmonious partnerships, and they hate to be alone. They’ll want to do everything together because they think it’s more fun than doing it on their own. They might seem a little needy, but they make you feel happy like no one else does.
Scorpio is one of the most misunderstood signs of the zodiac. Because of its incredible passion and power, Scorpio is often mistaken for a fire sign. In fact, Scorpio is a water sign that derives its strength from the psychic, emotional realm. Scorpios have a number of positive attributes. They’re loyal, passionate, ambitious, and resourceful. On the negative side, they’re jealous, stubborn, manipulative, and obsessive. Not ideal traits for successful relationships.
Scorpios are known for being extremely independent and they always like to be in control. They don’t want to take a backseat to anybody. For example, Hillary Clinton is a Scorpio. So is Whoopi Goldberg. Don’t ever wrong a Scorpio. They can hold a grudge, and they don’t forget. Also, if they feel wronged, they may seek revenge. Scorpios can be a tad vindictive.
Uh oh. On the other hand, if you do something kind for a Scorpio, your gesture will be remembered and appreciated. They’re goal-oriented and driven; they’re relentless in pursuing their dreams. In part, they’re motivated by a fear of failure. It can be hard to get a read on Scorpios. Even though they’re passionate people, they often don’t show their emotions.
You should know they can get ridiculously jealous. Their jealousy might not always make sense, but they’re going to feel it regardless. They find it hard to trust you because the only person they really trust is themselves. They might be jealous and distrusting, but honesty for them means everything. They’ll always tell you the truth, even if it hurts.
Represented by the archer, Sagittarians are always on a quest for knowledge. The last fire sign of the zodiac, Sagittarius launches its many pursuits like blazing arrows, chasing after geographical, intellectual, and spiritual adventures. Fueled by wanderlust, these archers can be found traversing all corners of the world on thrill-seeking expeditions.
It’s no surprise that Jupiter, the planet of abundance, spirituality, and growth, governs Sagittarius. With so many journeys under their belt, Sagittarians are excellent storytellers and can light up any room with their exhilarating tales and infectious laughter. Effortlessly magnetic, Sags easily attract friends and lovers with their sense of humor.
You should know that they can’t be contained. If you make them feel suffocated by your relationship, they’ll flee. They don’t want to ever feel like their life has limits. They want to explore and discover everything this world has to offer, and they want your encouragement along the way.
The last earth sign of the zodiac, Capricorn is represented by the sea-goat, a mythological creature with the body of a goat and tail of a fish. Accordingly, Capricorns are skilled at navigating both the material and emotional realms. They scale the steepest mountains — Capricorn rules the knees, making it easier for this sign to climb — while simultaneously exploring their psychic strengths.
Capricorns tap into their inner fortitude to overcome whatever stands between them and their long-term goals and they don’t let anything distract them from getting ahead. Because of their unwavering focus, however, they are often perceived as cold and unemotional. Sea goats must remember that not every success in life can be featured on a résumé and that compassion is as important as any professional advancement.
You should know they’re extremely time-oriented and nothing means more to them than their word, and yours. If you say you’re going to be there at a certain time, be there. If you say you’re going to do something, do it. They always stick to their word, and they want you to stick to yours.
Despite the word “aqua” in its name, Aquarius is actually the last air sign of the zodiac. Aquarius is represented by the water bearer, the mystical healer who bestows water, or life, upon the land. Accordingly, Aquarius is the most humanitarian astrological sign. These revolutionary thinkers fervently support “power to the people,” aspiring to change the world through radical social progress.
Every Aquarian is a rebel at heart: These air signs despise authority and anything that represents conventionality. Free-spirited and eccentric, they can often be identified by their offbeat fashion sensibilities, unusual hobbies, and nonconformist attitude.
You should know that they enjoy their alone time. It’s not that they’re loners or don’t enjoy spending time with you, it’s that they need to be alone to reenergize. Being with other people all of the time can tire them out, and while they’ll have fun at the moment after it’s all over, they’ll need some time to collect themselves. They’re not trying to insult you when they express the desire to do something alone, they’re just trying to keep their sanity.
Pisces, a water sign, is the last constellation of the zodiac. It’s symbolized by two fish swimming in opposite directions, representing the constant division of Pisces’s attention between fantasy and reality. As the final sign, Pisces has absorbed every lesson — the joys and the pains, the hopes and the fears — learned by all of the other signs.
This makes these fish the most psychic, empathetic, and compassionate creatures of the astrological wheel. With such immense sensitivity, Pisces can easily become swallowed by emotions and must remember to stay grounded in the material realm (appropriately, Pisces rules the feet).
You should know that they can be very emotional. They’re sensitive and empathetic and when you’re in pain, they feel it. They have no trouble expressing the way they feel, but sometimes you might not know how to handle it. They’re happy then sad, they’re angry then content, they’ve got every emotion you’ve ever heard of and they’re not afraid of showing them.
Why Do We Believe In Astrology?
Although astrology is not a religion, it offers comfort, faith and a deeper understanding of the world we live in. Interpretations often offer assurances of one’s future, but more importantly, they are supposed to show us a way to resolve our issues and to improve our relationships with our partners, family, and friends and mainly tools to meet ourselves and discover our own inner worlds in a different light.
Astrology claims that nothing in life is coincidental and everything that happens to us happens for a particular reason. Astrology can provide us some good answers as to why these things happen to us and it guides us on our steps forward. In this way, astrology actually helps people to understand themselves and the world around them much better.
Astrology works, astrologers don’t. Most of the people who visit astrologers or read their horoscopes regularly, end up with a sensation of fulfillment and satisfaction somewhat like euphoria. This does not mean that the astrologers have accurately predicted the individual’s future or present based on their horoscope dates, but it means that having a horoscope cast can be actually a very fulfilling experience.
The Earth is positioned under the constellations that were known as our star signs millenniums ago. Although signs don’t coincide with the constellations anymore, we are still under the influence of seasons and planetary movements in the same way as we were back then. Many people diligently follow their horoscopes and believe in their astrology signs’ meanings.
This isn’t surprising, as astrology is widely popular and everyone in the world knows which are their horoscope dates and signs are. People enjoy reading their horoscope signs forecasts and this often leads to changes in personalities, behaviors, and decision-making processes.
Astrology can be a real lifesaver because it lets you know of future obstacles and problems in advance. It is up to you whether you want to believe the advice and precautions suggested in a horoscope reading and save yourself from the pain without doing much. Here is your first problem – There is no salvation “without doing much”. This is the main problem with the approach to chart readings – everyone has to put up a strong effort to change things in their lives.
Some People believe in astrology because others before them did and curiosity it a basic human nature, but the further drawn into astrology the more clear things become. The zodiac dates, the signs. We can associate zodiac signs to almost all aspects of our lives and we will see they are truly insightful and correct. Our horoscopes are unique and they can help us find and reveal our strengths, weaknesses as well as natural qualities.
Astrology can also help us find, which relationships are compatible – and which are not. Horoscope compatibility can improve our relationships with other zodiac signs. By knowing about your love potential you can make the best use of opportunities and take appropriate measures leading to a happy love or married life.
Astrology takes into account two major aspects – our birth potential and the effects of the planets and the stars on our personal horoscope. It can help us choose the right career and education path in order to make a good and successful life.
Last, but not least – we believe in astrology because it’s about us. My horoscope is like a blueprint of my life that got created precisely at the time I was born. That means that my birth chart is almost as unique as my fingerprints. Each planet’s placement in my horoscope can reveal a lot about my personality and destiny.
Astrocartography is one method of locational astrology that claims to identify varying life conditions through differences in geographic location. Reportedly, by comparing your natal chart to different areas in the world, you can determine the area where you’ll be most successful.
