Looking for love and the connections that make for a harmonious relationship are the number one reason people consult astrologers.
Throughout history, civilizations have been gazing skywards and wondering how the movements of planets affect our everyday lives and the unions we make together with the other people in our lives.
Astrologers have devised many differing charts based on the time and date of our birth and discovered similarities in characteristics of people born under a certain star sign. This helps to give one a fascinating insight into past, present and possible future events. However, when talking about the future, this is only an interpretation based on probabilities of the various energies that may or may not be influencing a situation, so it is also important not to take an astrologers word as the stone cold truth.
Astrology & Relationships
It is human nature to believe that love is destined that there is someone in the world for everyone. The truth however lies in horoscope compatibility and the answers are generated if approached in the right way to us finding our ideal partner in a long-term relationship. However, I am a firm believer that there is more than one “right” person for everyone and our love life is not ultimately at the mercy of fate. But rather, we each do also have our own free will, which we can exercise as we wish in these matters.
Having said that, if a match is strongly against the energetic alignments of the stars then the universe will certainly let you know and then point you in the direction of a more suitable partner. This may be for the reasons of merely a more harmonious connection. However, in many cases also, two people are brought together to either do some kind of work, complete a mission together or to learn valuable life-lessons from one another.
The zodiac and its influences
The zodiac is divided into twelve signs which in turn are segmented into four categories, known as the elements.
Fire is the controlling element of the star signs of Leo, Aries and Sagittarius. Earth the element of Capricorn, Virgo and Taurus. Air is the ruling element of Aquarius, Libra and Gemini. With the final element being water which covers Pisces, Cancer and Scorpio. Each element interacts with one another creating a unique link.
The astrological elements work within the zodiac in a scientific way of the main elements of our planet Earth. For instance if one was to pour water on fire, it would initially produce steam, but too much would extinguish the flames completely. Similarly adding water to the soil will make vegetation grow but too much would form a mud-bath. The same goes for the other two elements in as far as Air can blow the earth dry and turn it to dust but can also fan the flames of fire to make them burn brighter. This is just one aspect of many to consider when looking into compatibility at a Sun sign level.
When a person understands how the elements work in nature they can easily see how the signs of the zodiac control the relationship compatibility and how various signs interact or repel one another.
Success in finding love is all about knowing the characteristics of the various zodiac signs and using that knowledge to relate to the other person. There is no such thing as two signs being completely opposed to each other only an awareness of the differences that can erupt.
A cardinal fire sign is Aries and is known to always want to take the lead. So this sign may not be so good with another cardinal sign like Capricorn, Cancer or Libra. But looking at it from an element perspective Aries merges well with Air signs to set the sparks flying with the fire signs.
A good match for Aries would be Sagittarius, Gemini, Aquarius or Leo. The planets have a ruling influence and Mars is the ruler of Aries and could possibly be a great match with Venus ruled, Libra which is a recognised classic pairing of Mars and Venus.

Using Taurus as an example
The sign of Taurus is related to the element of earth. Therefore, one may say the best compatibility matches for a Taurus man would be Virgo, Pisces and Scorpio. But why these three signs in particular? For the Virgo woman, her element is also earth, so the two of them have a lot of similarities which can be complimentary and, therefore, they can have a lot in common and naturally be on a similar or the same wave-length.
When we look at a Pisces or Scorpio female in this situation, both of these ladies can water the earth sufficiently to make a flowering and flourishing relationship as they are both signs relating to the water element. However, both the Pisces and Scorpio woman need to be careful not to smother their Taurus man too much or they will drown the flames of passion completely as Taurus likes to be with an independent woman and one who will not stifle him.

If we were looking at a Taurus woman, however, then her best match is said to be Libra, Cancer or Pisces. So, why these three? Well, when it comes to a Cancer or Pisces man, it is similar to the Taurus male in that each of these water signs can water her soil to help bring forth a flourishing relationship. However, Libra is an air sign, there is said to be a karmic link that exists between these two as they have a lot in common with one another and can be mutually complimentary in a relationship.

Compatibility is understanding the influences that are projected from the elements which will initially form attractions but then moving forward with how these influences can manifest themselves within the relationship.
