Do We Get Along? Sign-by-Sign

Sagittarius woman and Pisces guy

Pisces: One a scale of the best relationships I’ve ever seen, this is second only to its reverse. But you’re going to have to be pretty careful when handling your Pisces guy. He is a little more sensitive than you. No, that’s not true, he’s not more sensitive than you. No one is more sensitive than a Scorpio woman. (And I’m not pandering to you, either—it’s the truth.)

But that Pisces guy is more in touch, in an obvious way, with his feelings than you are. There are very few guarded Pisces guys. Ask him, he’ll tell you how he is feeling, at that very moment. So much for the good news.
There was the nicest stray cat in this one apartment complex I lived. He was all black except for a little tuft of white hair on his chest. He was also a Pisces male. That should be, he was a typical Pisces male. He would cat around all night, and then show up on my doorstep in the morning. Rather than say he was hungry, he would just look at me with those forlorn cat eyes, and I would give him food.

I did, eventually, put a cute pink flea collar on him, too. That worked pretty well. The way I know he was a standard–issue Pisces cat was something that happened one night. There was typical Texas spring storm. There was high wind, rain in great sheets. Some folks reported seeing a tornado funnel cloud someplace. The cat was sitting on my door mat, soaking wet. If he had moved over a mere three feet, he would have been in a dry spot, but the lashing rain was soaking this guy. He didn’t scratch at the door, or meow. He just sat there until I let him in.

This did not go over too well with my indoor Mama cat, but she did let him know that he wasn’t allowed out from under the couch, but he could stay the night. At least as long as it was raining that hard.

You can’t help but have pity on the guy. You can’t help but believe that he needs your mercy. But he’s a foxy little critter, that Pisces. However, just like that stray, when he looks in your eyes, you have no choice but to take him in.


Libra female and Taurus male

Taurus: A loving Libra needs to have some sort of internal examination before jumping off with a Taurus Male. Don’t get me wrong, the Taurus is absolutely a wonderful person, that’s not the issue or the question. And the Taurus can be so sensual in an exciting way. Again, it’s not the issue. The problem here has to do with making decisions. The typical Taurus way of dealing with a problem is to wait for someone else to fix it. And the typical Libra way is to get some one else to fix the problem. And this is the problem, two signs who are not really willing to address the core issue of whatever it is that is going on.

The upside, of this, is that all the trappings that go to make a relationship a good thing, all the day in and day out stuff, the loading of the bass boat, as it were, that all works. The Taurus will know how to enjoy the good things in life, whether that’s music that is usually a favorite, or tasty food, which is another Taurus trait. And, not to slight the Taurus, the guy will probably be a consummate shopper as well.

The problems seem to occur when the Libra, being the Libra that she is, has a tendency to flirt. I’m reminded of one Libra friend, with a large pair of well–formed assets, and she’s ever so amusing. She gets upset, though, when guys don’t notice her, or when they don’t pay her the kind of attention that she really feels like she deserves. It creates problems.

A lot of this relationship is going to depend on how understanding the Taurus guy is. If he’s fairly self–secure, then this isn’t a problem. But if he’s not secure, perhaps this is a young relationship, then there will be trouble, right here in River City.

The Fixed and Cardinal signs seem to share a enough of a common ground that they have what it takes to keep things moving along in a forward motion with a relationship. What any Libra girl needs to make sure she does, or doesn’t do, is to care for the male ego in this situation. Make sure that he feels secure. Stability is very important to a Taurus, and as long as he feels like the relationship is stable, he’ll be able to ply you with the pretty things that you don’t require, but sure do make you feel l good. Good liquor, nice treats, pretty words, all of it is within the grasp of the Taurus, because, after all, he is the consummate sensualist.


Capricorn woman and Scorpio man

Scorpio: Not many people are up to the “Scorpio Challenge,” and if a Cappy woman lands a Scorpio male, she will find that she has her hands full because the Scorpio male is certainly a breed apart from the rest. Once again, though this is a Cardinal–Fixed relationship, and these relationship certainly have stronger and more stable characteristics than other signs. In this case, it’s matter of knowing the enemy, knowing what that Scorpio man is like.

Scorpio is intense and usually highly sexual. The problem with this Scorpio male is that he will also be very guarded about his emotions. He might preface any number of statements with the term, “I feel,” but the words themselves lack some of the emotional content one would normally associate with feelings. Get used to it.

Scorpio’s are a manipulative bunch. Not all manipulation is bad, for example, teaching is a form taking young and malleable minds and helping them along. And Scorpios aren’t all bad, either; it just appears that way. The same hold true for the Capricorn female. Both signs get a lot of bad press. Admittedly, some of this is well–deserved, but not all of it. The inherent beauty, and hence the strength of a Capricorn female and Scorpio male lies in the way the two communicate. And, the Capricorn is willing to address and forgive old hurts. Beware, though, because many Scorpios are known for their ability to nurture old resentments.

With this relationship, you will find that there is a certain amount of karma, past life luggage, or soul–mate type potential. It will always feel like you have known this person in a previous lifetime. In fact, it’s quite common to have this one be a love at first sight scenario.


Scorpio female and Aquarius male

Aquarius: How good, my dear, beloved Scorpio woman, just how good are you at playing long odds? What was that line from that movie, the one that has been bantered about so much? “Feel lucky punk? Go ahead, make my day.” Such a good Scorpio line and so evocative what this relationship is like.

You two are almost always going to feel like you are at odds with each other. I have no polite way to get around this. To borrow from another source, a country song that was popular not long ago, “Sometimes you’re the bug and sometimes you’re the windshield.” I will always suggest that you’re the windshield, the flattening force or the driving force in this relationship, but that’s not always the case. There will be days when Mr. Aquarius gets the upper hand, and he rolls right over you. That’s when you revert to your Scorpio archetype. Ever try to crush one? It’s real hard and it doesn’t usually work unless you grind really hard with your boot heel. Even then, that Scorpio stinger is still loaded with potentially fatal poison.

So the Aquarius guy will eventually try to run you over, and like I’ve suggested, that doesn’t work. The other problem with this relationship is the emotional needs of each partner. Consult with an average astrologer, and they will tell you that Aquarius have no emotions. Ask me, and I’ll suggest different, but I will point out that the Aquarius isn’t very well equipped to deal with your Scorpio feelings.

We’re back to the odds. It’s not like this is completely doomed. But if you’re contemplating dating an Aquarius, give him a very thorough examination before you take the plunge. As you’re looking him over, ask yourself, “Do I feel lucky today?”

Scorpio girl and Aries guy

AriesAries: Whatever you do, don’t knock this one at all. It’s one of those relationships that some folk say won’t last. But I’ve seen this unlikely combination work. And unlikely as it may seem, it has certain definite astrological bonus points which are going for it. This is like a frequent flyer relationship that can come as a reward at the end of collecting some of these bonus points.

8scorpioIt’s certainly going to take wing, but that’s where the Scorpio part of your feminine mystique might come into play, and it also might get grounded. Some of the more subtle Scorpio points that so many of us dearly enjoy might be lost on the Aries fellow. To be sure, once you begin to understand his intrinsic nature, I believe that you will come to enjoy this relationship as long as you learn to deal with the apparent brusque behavior of an Aries. He’s not short tempered, he’s just quick to take action. He’s not childish, he’s childlike. And most of all, he’s not shallow, he’s just upfront with everything.

Don’t knock your Aries guy. He can make a decent companion for a Scorpio girl because he’s going to offer the different point of view from your own. And neither one of you is inclined to bicker with the other one. Best of all, when you’re right, he will acquiesce, which is definitely not a normal male trait, but one that is happily found in this guy.


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

CapricornCapricorn: 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.

PiscesIt’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.
