Do We Get Along? Sign-by-Sign

Taurus Girl and Capricorn Guy

Capricorn: Dirt and dirt can go together like oil and water. Or they can form a more holy bond than most people experience in several lifetimes. And if you’re involved with a Capricorn guy, there is surely a degree of past life influence, a certain sense of destiny, and certain sense of trials and tribulations which might scare away a lesser sign, some female who isn’t a Taurus.

I’ve maintained for some time now that Cap guy doesn’t fully season until he’s hit a good 30 years of age. That’s when he’s on top of things, that’s when his ruling planet, the planet voted most likely to be associated with his sign, Saturn, has made a complete trip around his chart. Before that age, I wonder about these guys a little. They ain’t all there, if you know what I mean. But after that little trip through zodiac, he’s more than ready. Catch one before his Saturn Return, and he’s okay. Get one after that special astrological turning point, and he is wonderful.

The sun signs trine each other, and a trine is generally considered a very good angle between signs. See? I told you this could be good. Regrettably, though, there’s still a small problem with this one, and the Capricorn has this sense that there is some better part of fortune waiting for him, just over there. It’s not a Sagittarius wanderlust, and it’s not a Gemini inherent instability, it’s just a sort of reserved attitude. It’s not as reserved or even hidden, like a Scorpio, it’s just that, well, it’s just a sense of ennui that pervades his psyche from time to time.

On a good day, this man will be very entertaining. Good to look at, youthful, thoughtful, serious, and then there is that dry humor. As long as you adjust your delicate Taurus sensibilities to that self–deprecating humor, you’ll get along fine. He’s so serious some times, he needs that droll stuff to lighten up his load.
The physical attraction should be strong, but it’s less along the lines of fireworks, and more along the lines of Tantric Yoga. Know what that stuff is? Perhaps you are the one to introduce him to this subject. Few signs have the raw physical stamina to keep up with a Taurus. A Cap guy has what it takes to make you real happy.

Scorpio woman and Gemini boy

Gemini: They said it wouldn’t work. They said you should know better. The book says it won’t work. But because this is an experimental guide, I feel like this one has a fighting chance—only don’t use the words “fighting chance.”

There’s nothing that good Scorpio like yourself can really get into more than a good fight, an honorable fight, a fight where justice is right, and you are on the side of justice. That’s also a downfall for the Gemini guy because he lacks much attention span for a good fight. This lack of attention won’t just show up in a verbal disagreement, it will show up in many areas. As long as you can consider yourself entertained, this can work. A Gemini usually has a quick mind, and that’s something that you appreciate in him. The problem with this quick mind is that sometimes it never turns off. Then what do you do?

A good Scorpio like yourself can latch onto one idea and pound that idea into the ground. Work it over, follow all the serious lines of thought that spring from the original idea. Your Gemini buddy does much the same thing, only, well, only he’s looked at all the branches of that thought, gone to the bookstore and completely forgotten about it while getting lost in stacks and stacks of books, and he’s busy researching something else now. You’re still on the same thought. In other words, he’s on a different page now. That’s a problem.

It doesn’t have to be a problem but often works out like one because he’s busy worrying about details while you’re still wrestling with the core of the issue. He’s off and flitting about, while you’re angst ridden over the central issue.

If you can adopt a proper attitude, one of merriment and glee, and if you genuinely delight in the various little twists and turns he takes, then this can work. But you’ve got to be adaptable to the mutable nature of the Gemini, the many different facets, the supposed “two–faced” nature of the critter to begin with. (Personally, I like Gemini’s—I find great delight in them, but I’m NOT a Scorpio.)


Aries Female and Aries Male

Aries: Aries female and Aries male is a good combination because both partners are very much alike, although that may be a source of discord in the relationship due to the similarities. Aries is a Cardinal Sign, the first one out of the gate, a strong self–starter and self–promoter. Occasionally, in this relationship, the problem will be that the two people feel so much alike that there is friction caused by the “perception” that the mate just doesn’t get it. Whatever “it” is, needs some clarification. Because both of the partners are Fire Signs, look for a high degree of passion and physical love being expressed in this combination. Flying objects, or rather, sharp and heavy objects hurled with speed and accuracy are just one example of the many possible displays of affection. When problems do arise, the characteristic way an Aries deals with a problem is in a very forthright manner.

With two Rams in a relationship, both want to be in control of the situation and both want to have the upper hand. When fights do ensue, the pyrotechnics can be quite inspiring. Early on, both partners need to understand certain techniques for problem resolution. Since patience is never an Aries trait, effective tools need to be established, that is, clear lines of communication need to be established so the horns of these two rams can be unlocked. Brashness, bordering on brazen behavior is common for an Aries.

The good news is one always knows where one stands with an Aries, so one problem this relationship will never have is the comment: “I just don’t know how he feels about me…”

In a synastry chart, Sun conjunct Sun is a powerful combination. It makes for a couple quite capable of surmounting any obstacle, together. The most fun, though, comes from watching them bicker and squabble, because it can be done with such love and care. Unless there are conflicting elements in the chart, this is a good combination, and quit possibly one that can withstand the rigors of the long haul. Although it wouldn’t be considered typical, I would expect to find a certain degree of theatrics associated with this combination, along with the strong sense of power and destiny. Since both partners are at an early stage of development, the beginning of the zodiac in Western Astrology, this is a relationship that has overtones of lasting far into the future, possibly encompassing many future lives. As such, both partners should learn to cultivate care and respect for each other.

Capricorn girl and Pisces guy

CapricornPisces: 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.

PiscesThere 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.


Leo Woman and Libra Male

Libra: This one looks good to me. But in the real world, I’ve seen it be problematic. That is, from time to time. Not all the time mind you, but some of the time. And it’s not like there should be any problems, but men being what they are, and finding some of those male traits in a Libra male can be the source of some problems. But not all the time. Just some of the time. Maybe.

I would give this an unequivocal triple star award because it meets the Cardinal and Fixed rule that generally gets the triple star recommendation for a love combination. But there is a problem with this one, and it doesn’t have a lot to do with the cardinal and fixed nature. It’s what I would call the “Peacock Problem.”
In a barnyard, a male Peacock has beautiful feathers. He is the prettiest creature out there. Personally, I don’t care for the birds because the meats a little too gamy and doesn’t really make a decent chili. But my Leo friend assures me that she is the best in the barnyard. So we’ve got two of the prettiest critters together in a relationship. How’s that going to work?

To be brutally honest, ya’ll are a stunning couple. Not just good, but perhaps the most handsome couple I’ve ever seen. But a Leo deserves the center stage, and she seems to get a little upset when her mate attracts an equal amount of adulation. Therein is the problem. The ever so diplomatic Libra guy will certainly tell you that you’re the best, but that doesn’t mean you don’t always feel a little suspicious when other girls pay attention to him. And like that peacock, he stands tall and proud with his tail feathers beautifully arcing over the barnyard.

In private, he can be the most romantic and tender individual ever. He can say all the right things, and his timing is usually much better than mine. But there’s also a little problem with Mr. Libra. He does attract some unwanted attention from other critters in that barnyard of life, and that can cause a pique of jealousy in a Leo. It ain’t always good.

If you can learn to delight in the fact that you have the most magnificent male by your side, and if you can learn to understand that everyone is envious of you with him, then there is a strength that you can build on Tyco make this work. But if you let petty jealousy get in the way, this a doomed scenario.
Love them Libra’s for what they are, not for what they ain’t.

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.
