Do We Get Along? Sign-by-Sign

Sagittarius female and Capricorn male

Capricorn: Seek professional help now. You’ve fallen for a Cap guy. You need a check up from the neck up. You really should know better. There’s been a recent deluge of charts I’ve looked at, good Sagittarius women, darling every last one of them, and they all seem to have a plethora of planets in Capricorn. Not the sun sign, but other orbiting little planets like Jupiter and Saturn, maybe Venus or Mars.

Then this person finds herself looking long and hard at a Capricorn guy. To be sure, there’s a little bit of astro–glue in the charts, but let’s be reasonable here…. he’s a Capricorn, fer chrissakes.

I happen to have a lot of really long standing and well–intentioned relationships with guy Caps. But I’m not sleeping with them. Pretty simple fact. And I’m not going to be sleeping with them in the foreseeable future, “not in this lifetime” is a likely phrase. Not this body. So I get along with a Capricorn guy in a most excellent manner. Funny, witty, droll, entertaining, self–deprecating, honest, reliable, able to leap tall buildings in a single bound. So I lied about the buildings, but I have several Cap guys who would do just that, or, at least try.

With all the nice things said, let me warn a decent Sagittarius girl like yourself about getting involved with a Capricorn fellow. He can be all of those nice things. It’s just when it comes a relationship, he can be pretty much “out there” and none of us are too sure where “out there” is. This obviously witty guy is suddenly smitten by your Sagittarius traits. The only problem comes from the fact that he’s going to start trying to amend your ways. Sagittarius girls are great but they do not gently let someone else manipulate them for very long. I want to be as fair as possible to the Capricorn guy, too, and he’s just trying to evoke a few changes that might actually do you both some good. But that’s also a problem.

If you’re smitten with him, or he’s quite taken with you, good. Just be a little careful, and since I have so many Capricorn guy friends, I’ll plead with you to be as gentle as possible with him. Just remember, sometimes, you’re going to find him “out there” when you ask about the true nature of your relationship.

One of my guy Capricorn buddies came up with the perfect analogy for this relationship, “Man, it’s just like Artoo and Threepio. No, wait, really, it is. See: that Sag girl, she’s just like Artoo, always in the right place, at the right time. And Threepio? He’s just like me. He complains about no adventure, and when that Sag Girl drags me off on some adventure, I’m just like the character, complaining that it’s not safe.”

Can’t win for losing, huh?

Virgo female and Aquarius male

Aquarius: I’ve seen worse combinations work, and starting out by stating that, gives your Aquarius guy a chance to think about it. If you are willing to put up with some of the Aquarius eccentricities, then this is certainly a worthwhile relationship. But please, my favorite Virgo girl, please learn to control the whining, complaining, and general sad face that is so often mistaken for a Virgo face.

Yes, I realize that you Virgo’s do get picked on a lot for making a point out of making a point out of about every little problem. And I’m not about to suggest that you change your basic Virgo nature, either. That’s not what I was looking at. What I was trying to address is the way you bring these complaints to your Aquarius guy. He has many fine traits. One of them is not usually deterred by minor discrepancies in day to day stuff, and that’s just exactly what will bother your own, sweet self. Those little hiccups that occur, the routine problems that you encounter… that’s the problem.

I found one Virgo girl carefully polishing the silverware at a restaurant where she was dining. Her Aquarius date was able to find the humor in the situation. She was merely wiping off the water spots with a clean napkin, something to insure that the silverware was nice as possible before she used that same silverware too convey food to her mouth. It was not an unreasonable proposition.

Proper Aquarius fashion is not concerned with such minute details. He’s looking at the big picture, and your Virgo attention to detail is a problem.

If you’re lucky, then you wind up with an Aquarius who finds such actions amusing, and, from a strictly intellectual point of view, he can see the justification for doing what you do. In the worst of situation, though, he will make fun of your behavior. You’re going to know, right away, whether this will work or not. Although you’re not prone to snap decisions, you will find you can make a quick assessment of the potential here. My best wager is that it’s good. There is enough “astrological glue” to hold this one together for a long time.


Aquarius girl and Aquarius guy

Aquarius: “They said it would never work,” is the expression that comes to mind, and then, all I can do is think about times when it has worked.
It is an odd combination, and the places that I’ve found this one to be more successful are in remote locations. It’s like two halves of the same piece of fruit. A remote location, like far West Texas or Alaska seems to let these two really get into it all by themselves. And secluded locations force a sense of sharing that’s not always possible in the hustle and bustle of the big city.

That’s not to say, if you want it to work you have to move to the country. But what it does imply is that there needs to be plenty of time where you two are alone together. That expression, “alone together” is the best way to explain how this thing works in the long haul. It’s a really weird combination because both characters have a detached sense, yet, when paired up, they almost need each other, if only to know that the other one is somewhere in the house, maybe not right in each other’s face. It’s pretty strange.

It might be my own predilection for remote locations and it might be my own predilection for Aquarius in general which finds me finding these coupes so successful in far–flung environments. But there’s a really cool dependency that grows in this pairing because everyone knows that an Aquarius can survive alone. I realize it’s a contradiction, but a simple contradiction is no challenge to an Aquarius, male or female.

Telling you it won’t work is the best way to reverse the situation. It will work, but there’s a degree of understanding, almost like mental telepathy, that is the basis for this coupling.

Hey, go for it. Drop me a postcard from Alaska, the Pacific Rim, or your mountaintop.


Leo Woman and Aquarius Man

Aquarius: This is one of the oddest combinations—it’s both very good and very bad. Good because, under the right circumstances, it can work out quite well. In an ideal situation, the Leo needs an audience, and, in this ideal situation, the Aquarius represents that ideal audience, always wanting to be there to please the Leo.

In less than ideal situations, though, there can be trouble with this coupling. The basic standoff nature of the Aquarius guy, the mental mensurations and various side–tracked attitudes can be detrimental to this relationship. The Aquarius male can seem cool when he’s supposed to be hot, he can seem to be detached when he’s supposed to act like he cares, and he can be very passionate when he’s supposed to be distant. This creates problems. As long as you understand what it is that is going on with the guy, you’re doing okay. As long as you can tolerate his Aquarius attitude, you’re fine. Trouble starts when you don’t understand what his basic nature is.

The Aquarius guy will challenge what you believe in, not because he doesn’t believe, but because he feels like he must challenge any preconceived notions. He’s a rebel, at heart. In order to win him over, a little distance, a little patience and degree of compassion is necessary. Understand what it is that he’s trying to accomplish. Understand what he’s trying to do. Understand that, oh, never mind. When it works, he’s your natural audience. When it doesn’t work, he’s busy thinking about something—something that you’re feeling sure is something he should be emoting about, not thinking about.

When it’s good, it’s very, very good. When it’s bad, don’t say I didn’t warn you.


Leo Woman and Pisces male

Pisces: When I see this one, I’m reminded of a friend. Every time she hears the term “Pisces” she responds with “The Devil’s Lap Dog.”
“Dude! That’s harsh!” said another friend. It’s a brutal expression, and perhaps it’s too hard on the poor Pisces sign in general. I can’t let just one negative experience get in the way of the relationship and romance research. But I do wonder about this one. So far, the numbers aren’t too good. 2 out of 3 don’t do well with this relationship.

Now that you know the odds, are you going to be dissuaded from pursuing this? I hope not. Just understand your target. While a Leo woman is full of fire and passionate energy, the ever–emotional Pisces displays his passion in a different way. He’s less inclined to have obvious outbursts of emotions, but if you hurt his feelings, this is the one who will sit there and quietly leak tears from his expressive eyes. If you’re a sucker for nice eyes, you can beat the odds on this relationship. It can be done. Just understand that your man needs a certain amount of affection. Perhaps it would help if called me, and I explained how a Leo is really an easy woman to get along with as long as you follow the rules.

The guidelines are really simple, and the Pisces guy might agree to this right away. It’s just that sometimes his rather fluid background will get in the way. That’s when the trouble starts. But as long as he regards you as the best thing since sliced bread, and you might have been better than sliced bread, you have a chance.
In traditional astrology, Fire is extinguished by Water. That’s what you need to be careful about. Learn to delineate the difference between emotions, feelings, and passion. The words you use are important. And make sure he understands you’re the greatest thing on the planet. That really helps.


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.
