Do We Get Along? Sign-by-Sign

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….


Aries Female and Taurus guy

Taurus: Aries and Taurus can be problematic, but most of the trouble stems from the fact that both signs appear to be headstrong. This is an astrological fallacy. Taurus is not really headstrong, perhaps a better word would be “determined” or maybe “tenacious.” That’s the secret. The beauty of the relationship lies in the fact that neither sign has the “hidden agenda” routine, although, it would often appear that way to the Aries. If you can find that secret sensual side to the Taurus, and if the Taurus can tame the Aries fire, there is a possibility of a strong relationship here, and also, the possibility of lasting one because this is the second most ideal combination for relating to one sign because it’s Cardinal (Aries) and Fixed (Taurus).

The problems, which do arise, have to be dealt with quickly by the Taurus individual, and failing to do so is the root trouble between these two signs. In a strong love relationship, if the Aries is willing to accept the apparent Taurus fault, there is also the concept of the sensual Taurus nature that can pervade the scene. Unlike other Cardinal–Fixed relationships, though, this one can get past some of the problematic humps but that’s only because the Aries is doing all the striving.

Remember the old adage about Aries, how these people seem to be cold and dispassionate. The average Aries is anything but cold and dispassionate. A more accurate description is one where the Aries is quick to take action. “Still mad about that? I don’t know why, I forgave you a long time ago,” would be a typical Aries reaction whereas the Taurus is still deciding what to do. And that poor old Taurus guy is still trying to decide what to do to this very day.

Sagittarius woman and Leo man

Leo: I really do like the opposite of this one. And I’ve seen this one work pretty good for an entertaining relationship. But a good Sagittarius girl had better do a little academic research about her Leo companion before getting into to this too far. He’s easy to please, all you have to do is stroke him. It reminds me of a guy I know who catches catfish by hand. Now, with Leo being the Lion, the Catfish metaphor is even funnier and more appropriate. How does this guy do it? He strokes the Catfish. He reaches down, runs his fingers around the big fish’s head, and then grabs that sucker by the gills and tosses them up onto the bank. There’s got to be an assistant on the bank, too, someone to make sure that big fish doesn’t flop back in the creek.

Okay, your Leo guy is just like that catfish, almost literally. A quick stroke, a reassuring touch and then, “bang!” He’s yours. Makes it sound simple, but catching Leo’s is like trying to catch certain fish, it looks a lot easier than it really is.

And like the example of those catfish, it could almost take help from another person to keep him when he’s landed. But is it worth the effort? For a Sagittarius girl, it sure is worth the effort to keep that Leo around. He’s loyal, dependable, imaginative, and he will treat you like a Queen, if you let him. It might take a little bit of a try to get it together the first time, but after that the rewards are great. Personally, I prefer my catfish rolled in some corn meal and pan fried with some Cajun spices.


Gemini Woman and Cancer male

Cancer: The Gemini woman is, at the very heart of this relationship, little girl. Unfortunately, there is some childish qualities associated with her behavior. On the good side, though, and with the multitalented Gemini, there are many good sides, the Gemini can expect and receive a lot of love and adoration from the Cancer male. And her childlike behavior at times can be quite attractive.

The Gemini, more than any other sign, never seems to lose her sense of wonder, and it is this very sense of wonder that turns the Cancer on. Now, there are some problems associated with the Cancer. Not many, but a few. Even though he is a sensitive water sign, he like some other water signs in that he is not always wide open about his feelings. He does have them, and the feelings are quite deep, but he’s not always ready to express these deep emotions. He’s been hurt before, and he’s always looking to get hurt again. The sign for Cancer is the Crab, and the Cancer male operates just like that crab archetype because he’s really hard on the outside, but once you crack him open, underneath the shell, he’s all tender and delicious.

The Cancer guy really is a soft one, on the inside. Watch a crab at the beach one day, note that it can’t (or won’t) walk in a straight line. It does everything sideways. Your Cancer man will be like that. Instead of saying, “Let’s get married,” he’ll say something like, “you know, it would be a lot more convenient, and save money, if we lived under the same roof….” Notice that the end result is much the same. The words, though, are very different. Sideways.

The way to his heart is through food and attention. Cancer men need lots of care and feeding. Although traditionally a nurturing sign, the Cancer needs to be nurtured as much as he nurtures. Cancer men, for a Gemini, are always an excellent catch.

Scorpio woman and Libra guy

Libra: The Scorpio gal and the Libra guy is actually a long–lasting relationship provided that the two get a working understanding of who is the boss. I’ve dated both [both signs—never dated a Libra guy], studied both, and I have a fair degree of understanding about this relationship.

The central issue is control. Just who is in charge?

And the answer varies with the day. To be fair to the Libra, he will come across as being in charge because he is, even in times like this, the man. And the Scorpio will let him feel like he is in charge, even in times like this, as long as he understands that the real power is within her Scorpio grasp. There’s a mutual admiration society that forms, between the two signs. In old–fashioned astrology, the ruler of Scorpio is Mars, and the ruler of Libra is Venus. Mars and Venus, the two love planets. Getting to see a connection here? I would hope so.

The issue of control in any relationship is ticklish, at its best. With the two controlling signs, one would have to assume that it’s real case of a fight. But both signs are quite cautious in their use of this control. And that’s what makes this one work so well. It’s a bit of a game, but then, watching folks play this game for over 50 years makes it an interesting one to watch. And yes, it can last that long. I’ve seen it before. When I figure out who is really in charge, I’ll post that information along, although, my vote tends to go with the Scorpio.


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.
