Do We Get Along? Sign-by-Sign

Scorpio guys

ScorpioScorpio: Scorpion guys are one of the most maligned groups I’ve ever encountered. Rightfully, so, too, as they are ruled by Mars, the ancient god of war, and in more modern times, Pluto, the lord of the underworld. Secretive bunch, too. No one knows just exactly what a Scorpio fishes with, and one of them actually suggested to me, on a fine morning, that if he told me what bait combination he was using, he’d have to kill me.

Grocery store: Grocery purchase patterns of a Scorpio are strictly held secrets and none of us have been able to ferret out this information. But we’re working on it, and if we ever get to observes Scorpio’s in the store, we’ll let you know. I suspect that they purchase a lot of canned goods that can be stored in dark places for long periods of time. You can never be too prepared.

Shopping at midnight: Most of the Scorpio’s I’ve observed while shopping at midnight have a tendency to linger around the hunting and fishing department. I think they are looking at firearms, but I can’t be too sure about it. This is the result of the Uncertainty Principle that is amended to read that an observed Scorpio will do something different, just to throw the results off and to make sure you don’t record what it is that he is doing.

Brick wall: This one I know a little too well. Scorpio’s, when faced with a brick wall, glance around nervously, and then saunter off to the nearest cafe. They order a cup of coffee, stir in some sugar, lick the spoon, and then put that spoon in their pocket. They go back to the brick wall under the stealthy cover of dark and dig a tunnel underneath it, carefully distributing the misplaced dirt so as not to leave a trail. Now, when they do get on the other side of the obstacle, they rather loudly point out how they stole a spoon and dug the tunnel all by themselves. Besides, there is no obstacle that is too much for a Scorpio.

Bait: Scorpio: Sneaky Snake — I’ll tell you a secret about how to catch a Scorpio, I mean, there’s one thing that works best, but I don’t want you to get paranoid, since it is the secret Scorpio ingredient, and keeping it a secret is no conspiracy. That’s why the Sneaky Snake works so well on the Scorpio Bass. It’s the allure of secrecy and mystery that catches that Scorpio attention. Just don’t tell the Scorpio that this is a traditional lure for Scorpio’s.

Body part: Parts for regeneration and elimination.


Libra woman and Gemini guy

LibraGemini: Libra and Gemini. Okay, you’ve been warned about the Gemini basic make up, right? The whole two–faced thing? And you can hear the Gemini over in the corner crying out, “We’re not two–faced!” which is actually true, but you need to be aware that there is an inherent duality with a Gemini. Just look at the word, the name itself implies plural. Gemini is always best addressed in the royal “we” format. The good news, though, if you can move past the duality within the Gemini, you’ve got yourself a keeper because a Gemini is an air sign. And Libra is, as well, which means that there is an inherent and built in stability factor here: you two like the way the other thinks. Works well, in other words. Works very well.

At least, it works good here on paper.

geminiThe angle between your two signs is called a trine, and in traditional astrology, this is a very good thing, this trine. The real problem with an all air relationship is that there is going to be too much that is unstable. There’s got to be some form of guiding principle with these two signs. Libra is Cardinal sign, which means they like to go charging off in new directions, often at the expense of unfinished business. And Gemini is no better. In order to make these two signs work together, there has to be a spark of mental activity. Something, somewhere has to work. Neurons in the brain have to be transmitting. As long as they are, there is lots of hope for these two. And the Libra female has to understand the essential “flight” characteristic in a Gemini.

The relationship will be forever young and entertaining—that’s for sure.


Aquarius woman and Capricorn man

Capricorn: Since these two signs are so close to each other, it just seems like it would be a natural match to hook them up. In some cases, this can work very well. In other cases, this ain’t so hot. All depends on what else is floating around. But it does follow the Cardinal Rule that Cardinal signs take direction from Fixed signs best. In an ideal world, the Aquarius girl ain’t so much of an Aquarius that she is too rebellious. That’s going to kill something off in Mr. Capricorn because, at their very heart of hearts, a Capricorn guy has some traditional values. There’s that sense of destiny, which can’t be eschewed, there’s that sense of making sure things are done the “right way” which is important to your Cap guy.

Of course, this all might seem a little puzzling to the best of the Aquarius women I know. That sense of doing things the right way, just for the sake of tradition, or because it’s historically accurate, or because it’s “the way they did it before” can sometimes cause a little inner conflict with an Aquarius woman. She has that sense of adventure and a quality about her wherein she occasionally likes to fly in the face of convention just for the sake of rocking the boat. “If it’s a rule, then I’m supposed to break it,” one Aquarius date told me.

That same attitude about bending certain rules doesn’t always work with Mr. Capricorn. However, he can certainly see the results of your efforts, and that works well for him.

I’ve always found my guy Capricorn friends to have a refreshing attitude that includes a droll sense of humor. Dry comes to mind. “Dry as the Texas sand,” as the lyric goes. The intellectual component of the Capricorn guy and the brain part of the Aquarius woman can meet on a certain level, and that’s where this relationship can take flight. Somewhere, somehow, there can be a meeting of the minds. And I’ve yet to find an Aquarius woman who isn’t turned on by thinking.


Sagittarius woman and Aries man

Aries: Fire and Fire. Wow. Cool. No, hot. That’s what this is, a hot relationship. I’ve always approved of a Sagittarius and Aries relationship. I’ve seen them be nothing but good. Well, mostly good. There’s a degree of understanding that you need to impart to this fine specimen of humanity called an Aries, though. He’s a Cardinal sign, a Cardinal Fire sign, as we previously noted. What we wind up with, when you put these two together, is a relationship with a hot, passionate side, fueled by a lot of go power.

The problems start when the go power takes a nap. The intense passion needs a rest occasionally, and while passion is asleep, if no one tends to the fire, the flames will go out. That’s the problem. Don’t let the fire go out. It can rest and dwindle, but remember to make sure the coals stay warm.

Tending this relationship is lot like looking after a good barbecue pit. It takes time, patience, and a degree of responsibility. The problem here is that neither sign really has an innate sense of what it takes to keep this going. It’s good a for a short turn, like that barbecue pit, great for doing hot dogs and burgers on a summer afternoon, but the long, slow smoked brisket of a relationship might take some extra attention. There needs to be something that will keep the flames going, something that keeps the smoke pouring out of the top of the pit, a little fan for the flames.

One of the best pit tenders I know keeps a bottle of hot sauce, a bottle of barbecue sauce, and little spray bottle of water at hand. These ingredients, on one level or another, might be the best items to keep this relationship going. You need to add an occasionally piece of Mesquite for flavor, maybe paint the ribs with hot sauce from time to time, perhaps layer a little barbecue sauce, and then, there are times when the mist from the water bottle is necessary to tone down the flames.

The end result is long, slow–cooked to perfection, type of meal where the meat falls off the bone and melts in your mouth. There will certainly be enough zest in this relationship to keep it spicy for a long time, it’s the judicious use of that water bottle that’s important.


Virgo female and Pisces male

Pisces: The Pisces is a curious creature because it never knows what version of reality it’s standing in…. In other words, clueless fits these guys pretty well. And Virgo is opposite Pisces on the great wheel in the sky. That could mean trouble, in more than one way.

From the FGS files, I’ve discovered that a Pisces can get along with just about anyone. So much for the good news. The Virgo female is usually a bit demanding about just what it is that she wants, and that’s going to make some trouble for the Pisces male. See: Pisces have their own little drum machine going in their heads right now. It’s not a tune that you or I can hear. Maybe Elvis can hear it, but there’s no way to validate that information. And this little drum machine is giving that Pisces a rhythm beat which is different from the ones which either you or I listen to.

Pisces play by their own rules, and these rules frequently contradict what the other 11 signs consider to be normal. In order to make this relationship work, understand your target a little better. Mutable Water sign. Go and study up on Pisces. In fact, look a at Neptune, too, because that’s one of the planets closely affiliated with Pisces.

Pisces have this huge spiritual gift, and more than likely, like any good Virgo, you can sense this gift. And it drives you to a distraction when you realize that he’s just not using it right. If he would only do things your way….


Pisces girl and Pisces guy

PiscesPisces: It wasn’t supposed to work. It wasn’t a good idea. But that’s never stopped a Pisces because, let’s face it, a Pisces can make anything work if they want to.

I’ve seen this unlikely relationship actually work better than most because of the similarity between the basic compassionate nature of both parties. Not long ago, I ran into a Pisces pair, and it was wonderful. Happy, blissful, and probably not very well grounded, but then, like I’ve suggested before, reality might be a little overrated. It’s not like this relationship between two Pisces is not based in the real world, it’s just that the average Pisces can usually detect a minimum of four dimensions, as compared to the three that most of us work with. Maybe four, maybe five, maybe, hey, who’s bothering to count, and isn’t that numbering system just an artificial way of trying to impose one kind of order on their version of reality, anyway? See? It just doesn’t matter to a Pisces.

There’s one problem with this idyllic scenario. Occasionally, a Pisces guy will try to interrupt this dreamlike state by injecting some of the normal, day–to–day reality stuff. Don’t let him do it. Doesn’t work, and those concerns will gradually lift, given enough time.

If it is a Pisces and Pisces relationship, though, consult an astrologer, I can think of one I would recommend, and see what he has to say about moon signs for you two. That’s going to be an important issue in this relationship because dear sweet Pisces can be so sensitive.


Pisces girl and Aquarius guy

PiscesAquarius: Oh no. Oh yes. Maybe. It’s not a relationship without some merit, and to be truthful, I’ve seen it successful more often than not. But there is a small problem with an Aquarius male, and that goes back to the basic difficulty with the Aquarius sign itself: aloof, apart, different, diffident. But no sooner is that said, than the Aquarius, rising to the bait of the situation, sets out to prove us all wrong. And that’s where this relationship can work.

AquariusIt depends on a few elements in a chart, not just the sun sign alone, but with an Aquarian male, you’ve got a chance. The chance depends on his ability to transcend the innate difficulties associated with this sign. And, to a large part, this is also dependent on the compassion and understanding of the Pisces. Equivocate your needs. Explain what you want. Ask for what you want. Ask for a little more than you need, too. This insures that you get some of what you want. Remember that the Aquarius male loves his brain, and brain games are the best way to hook them up.

There’s a refreshing and unusual quality found in this sign’s basic make up. Don’t be afraid to reverse roles, either. It’s also a sign that depends on certain immutable desires. Be very careful before putting big changes into action. Tread carefully, but don’t be afraid to walk.

Get used to the fact that he’s “thinking about it” at the moment. He will demonstrate his care and concern eventually. Maybe not fast enough, but with good communication, this is workable.


Pisces girl and Capricorn guy

Capricorn: To be honest, I have to love both these signs. There is a quality, though, in this relationship that might cause some problems on that long and lonely highway of life. In fact, as long as you are dating a Capricorn guy, you’re going to feel like the Highway Department has abandoned maintenance on this section of the road. The road with a Capricorn is long, it winds around a bit, and there are some pretty big potholes. In fact, on more than one occasion, you’re going to find your sweet Pisces self wondering just when you turned off the Freeway of Love and headed down this rock strewn, obstacle laden dirt road of Capricorn land.

It’s not always that bad. If you were a car, though, I would see a Pisces as a Cadillac, not Jeep or similar all–terrain vehicle. Ever notice that a disproportionate number of Texas Ranchers prefer the Cadillac brand over any other vehicle? Know why? It’s a tough car. It can take the abuse that even an old truck sometimes can’t take. That’s one tough car. And because you’re a Pisces, not only are you tough, but you’re pretty, too. Just like that fancy sedan.

The problem with this relationship is that question, are you actually up to the task of taming a Capricorn guy? That’s the positive spin. The bad news is that you’re not sure you want to be up for the taming of this guy. That’s the negative spin. It’s like that dirt road of love, it’s not all smooth–sailing. The ride can be rough at times. In fact, there are times when you might get despondent and just want to turn back. The problem with a Capricorn guy is that this is a narrow road, and when it gets to be the worst possible conditions, you’re going to find that there is no place to turn around. No way out. And backing down that road is even worse than trying to push on.

If you are involved with a Cap guy, make sure that you have a tow–rope. Make sure you carry a shovel, maybe some extra supplies. It can be very good. There will be days, maybe even long stretches like that bit of road in West Texas that doesn’t have a curve for over hundred miles. Then there will be the detours. The potholes, the washboard surfaces, those sorts of things. It’s both good and bad, and it depends on what kind of luxury you demand in your relationship that determines the quality of this ride.
