This is an introduction to Zodiac Sign Compatibility and is a sub category to astrology; therefore in order to understand zodiac sign compatibility, we need to know the fundamentals and history of astrology, as true astrology is a very complex subject. Not at all to be confused with the newspaper and magazine tabloids.
Astrology is almost timeless as it has been used by mankind for thousands of years and holds a fascination with millions, even today but is it science fact or science fiction? This depends on whether you are a sceptic or a true believer in astrology but here’s one for the sceptics out there: is having just a belief in something really enough to transform an event into a reality? I’d love to hear your comments on this one!
Astrology was most definitely used hand in hand with astronomy up until the 17th and 18th centuries. Philosophy and astrology were also strongly linked as evidence shows in the studies of the ancient Greeks. Astrology was used to foresee major events but was difficult to determine exactly what that event would be or the outcome of the event. It’s not until it actually happened that the last missing piece of the puzzle was found and then it all made sense. This still applies to astrology today, we know roughly what the event will involve but until the event has occurred we can then see the picture in full and understand it.
Nowadays, astrology is a completely separate subject and no longer goes hand in hand with astronomy, not directly anyway. Astrologers use astrology for many different aspects of our lives to guide and not to predict. There are many different categories that use astrology and some of these are as follows:
Character Portrait: An individual’s horoscope or natal chart comprising of a snapshot of the positioning of the planets within the twelve constellations of the zodiac at the precise time of birth. This gives the presence of the characteristics an individual will have and the strengths and weaknesses of certain areas within the life of the individual.
Compatibility Profile: Two people’s horoscopes are compared to see if they are romantically suited to each other and to help find the strengths and weaknesses to improve their relationship with each other. This category could also be used for relationships between a parent/child, or an bployee/boss, siblings etc.
A Forecast: Using the individual’s horoscope with the positioning of the planets now to determine the course of events over the term of the forecast. This can be for a day, a week, a month, a year or more.
Career Horoscope: Using the individual’s horoscope to determine the path of career suitable within the planetary influences.
To understand zodiac sign compatibility, we need to understand the individual’s horoscope and how it works, as this is the basis of all knowledge and the information necessary to successfully construe zodiac sign compatibility readings.
I will try to explain in simple terms: A horoscope chart is a circle divided into 12 equal segments, these are known as houses. The zodiac sign in which the sun is present is your sun sign and the house which holds your sun sign is the known as the 1st house. The zodiac sign in which the moon is present is your moon sign and the zodiac sign rising over the eastern horizon at the time of your birth is the ascendant or rising sign. The planets Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune and Pluto will be placed within the houses depending on their positioning in the sky the time you are born and the aspects. Also to take into consideration is the place you were born. This makes the horoscope as unique to you as your fingerprints. The details you will need to give to an astrologer to make the horoscope chart for you will be your name, date of birth, exact time of birth and the place of birth.
Once we have grasped the concepts of the horoscope, we can now delve into zodiac sign compatibility.
Zodiac Sign Compatibility is also known as Synastry Astrology, looking at two people’s charts for love and romantic connections. This technique can be used to find out whether you are compatible with the person you have just met or how to improve an existing relationship. This can be really insightful and picks out the strengths that you both have and how to deal with the weaknesses.
The analysis will outline if you are mentally, botionally, sexually or spiritually compatible and how to work out your differences. Zodiac Sign Compatibility can help us to understand the differences and to be more tolerant and helps us to be more compassionate with each other. In turn, it can help us see a more realistic prospect of the relationship and to find out what’s really going on. With all this said, just keep in mind that there is more to a relationship than harmonious zodiac signs.
