Do We Get Along? Sign-by-Sign

Virgo woman and Libra man

Libra: There’s only one little, tiny problem here. It has to do with a refined sense of order that a good Virgo girl has. Whether you’re the neatest of Virgo’s, or the kind of Virgo that lives in a messy place [but you know where everything is], there is still a very ornate sense of place, a sense of knowing, It’s a Gnostic quality, where everything must be perfect in your world. And well it should be. It is your Virgo world.

Let’s toss a Libra guy into this scene. He’s immaculate when he leaves the house. He’s capable of grand acts of romance, the bottle of your very favorite wine (or 12–pack of beer, here in Texas), the soft lights (broken neon buzzing through a motel window comes to mind), the soft music (old Hank Williams), he even has on your favorite western–cut flannel shirt with fake pearl snaps (on sale at Wal–Mart today). You get the idea, the mood is set perfectly. It’s an idyllic scene. He is everything you could want. Even better, there’s no dip on his teeth because he’s cleaned them for you. He’s clean even if it isn’t Saturday night that is, of course, a nice gesture.

Now what happens in the long haul tractor–trailer of a relationship? That’s where the Libra facade begins to develop a dull sheen to its formerly bright self. The shine loses its sparkle. Bummer, huh? Libra’s are good at starting things. They lack a little bit of follow through. And while they leave the house immaculate themselves, the house is usually a bit of a wreck., It looks like a motel room that a punk band has been sleeping in for a week. Not all Libra guys are like this, but they do all seem to be a little more concerned with pressing items on their hectic agenda, and house cleaning, real or metaphorical, gets put aside. That’s the problem.

The sometime chaotic mess of Libra can drive a Virgo to distraction. If you develop a means for dealing with this possible problem, then you’ve got it made.


Virgo female and Gemini boys

Gemini: Why do you do this to me? What have I ever done to deserve this? Why must I take two of my favorite signs and compare them in an unlikely combination? And yes, my dear Virgo girl, the odds are against you. Gemini men display many wonderful traits: they are witty, entertaining, and forever childish. And that’s one of the problems with this combination. Trying to tie up a Gemini guy in a Virgo–love–fest is just not a great idea. Every once in a while, perhaps twice a day, you’re going to want to put your foot down and tell him to, “Get serious for a minute.”

Refer back to what I just said were some of his good qualities. And you are much entertained, perhaps as much as 75% of the time, by his antics, make that his “Gemini antics.” The problem occurs when you want to get to the real point of a sticky situation and he insists on making a joke of it. Or when he wants to play, and your Virgo self is only interested in getting to the bottom of the problem, first.

Now, to be truthful, my cat is not a Gemini. But the fact that she decides it’s play time just as soon as I crawl into bed dog–tired, that’s a definite Gemini trait. Just when you thought you could rest, it’s a problem because he’s ready to play. My cat finds the loudest toy she can bat around, just as soon as I’m beat. Typical Gemini guy trick.

I’ll be honest, I’ve seen this combination last, with two shining examples of both signs, for a long period of time. But the Gemini guy has to be given a degree of “latitude” in order to operate on Gemini time. In Gemini space, as it were.

He will pick projects up, set sail on grand schemes, truck off in different directions, and he will always be exploding with new ideas. The entertainment value alone is sometimes worth the price of admission in this pairing of signs. As long as you understand just what you’re getting into, it can be good. The difficulties arise when the two signs don’t understand the inherent nature of each other’s needs and are not willing to bend a little to be with the other.


Libra woman and Virgo man

Virgo: Loving Libra females will get along with just about anyone in the zodiac. This is due, in part to their kind and forgiving nature. Ruled by Venus, the planet of love, of course you guys like anyone. The problems that arise from a Libra female and Virgo male are one of decisions. Neither sign is particularly noted for their decisive ability.

The Virgo male, too, can be quite adventuresome, but you have to get past his Virgo exterior first. The real secret lies in the bedroom. Or the living room. Or even the dining room, wherever the sexual escapades begin. The Virgo male, long tired of being called a Virgin, is usually anything but. Dedicated and monogamous? Certainly. Pernicious? True. Loyal? Of course. Kinky? That’s the secret, but it has to stay behind closed doors.

Whereas other signs have a penchant for exhibitionism, and this includes the Libra, the Virgo male wants to keep it private. Enduring and long lasting, but private. Don’t look for too much public display of affection with this guy. Other Virgo characteristics that are sure to show up include perfectionism and cleanliness. This behavior can make for a bad living arrangement for the Libra. Most Libra females intend to be clean. They might not ever get around to it, but the intention is always there. With Mr. Virgo Male, however, there is more than intention. He is neat and clean. He looks good in a business suit. His hair can be impeccable. And his bathroom is tidy. This exacting behavior can wear thin on the poor Libra female. She is used to action, going doing, and let the maid clean it all up. The Virgo male, however, feels like he IS the maid, and he can be distracted.

This romance is not without some passion, though, and that Virgo kink is fun to explore. Virgo men can be the best at earlobe nibbling and kissing in general. Just don’t lose them in the foreplay.

Libra female and the Scorpio male

LibraScorpio: The reverse of this relationship, Libra Male and Scorpio Female, I’ve studied for my entire lifetime, and I can assure you with good authority that it works. It’s when the tables are turned that we run into as few problems. It’s not quite as nice as the reverse. Doesn’t mean that this is without merit, though, because it does have a lasting quality to it. The vital link in getting these two signs to stay together in this combination is to avoid contests.

Even if it’s just a jest, even if it is as simple as some penny poker, let his Scorpio skill win. To be fair, he will win some of the time anyway, but that’s just the odds of the game. Still, he has to feel like champion. No sign is better suited for letting him feel like the victorious one that his, no sign basks better in his limelight than a Libra.

Occasionally, he’s going to appear sneaky. Get over it. Sometimes, you wonder what he’s really up to. Get over that, too. On occasion, there are some pretty serious questions about behaviors. Ignore his bad actions. Sometimes, you see, a Scorpio has to feel like he’s being sneaky, even if there isn’t anything there.

Aries guys

Aries guys: ram tough, this is the hard chargin’ sign of the truck. So it’s the first sign out of the wheel, what is it? Cardinal Fire, ruled by Mr. Mars, the God of War. Tough buggers, that’s the Aries Energy. Headstrong, stubborn, and those are the good qualities. Aries fish with dynamite. Nothing subtle here.

Shopping at 3:00 AM: Precision Shopping. Even in an induced stupor at three in the morning, the Aries knows what he wants, and the Aries gets what he is looking for. Nothing will deter him from this mission. Since Mars rules cutting instruments, being the Roman God of War, you can expect a surgical strike on the grocery store at 3:00 AM. A popular Aries food is the olive, which has been stuffed with a Serrano Pepper. Make sure that’s on the list for the 3:00 AM Food Strike Force.

Brick Wall: Just as the symbol for Aries is the Ram, and just as the glyph for Aries is the Ram’s Horns, Aries is very straightforward about problem resolution. They are very direct. Put a brick wall in front of an Aries, and he will charge straight into it. He will just lower his head, and bang away on that brick surface until something cracks. Like as not, it will be the wall. Aries are accused of being stubborn, but that’s not really the case. There is a certain amount of determination that comes with them, though, and they do charge headlong into that brick wall every time.

Bait: Live shad — see, an Aries fish needs something that wiggles, and let’s face facts, in some cases –– and Aries is just such a case –– no artificial bait can replace that special movement you can only get with a live one. For the non–technical folks, we call it action. Aries needs action, activity, and agility in order to get caught. Nothing works better than live shad for big redfish.

Body part: Head and face.

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.
