Do We Get Along? Sign-by-Sign

Aquarius female and Scorpio male

AquariusScorpio: Tough call, here. I’ve seen a couple of those unions work out over the long haul, but it’s not like it’s an everyday occurrence. The challenge, and this is one of those times when other stuff in the chart really counts, the challenge is to get past the Aquarius/Scorpio debate about who is in control.
Next to the Scorpio Male, the Aquarius girl is going to feel like a real inconstant person. Nothing can address this. Her love of freedom is going to make this a hard one for the Scorpion to understand because he likes to control every situation. And when there is something in his environment that he can’t control, like an Aquarius, he has a tendency to write it off, or dismiss it in some off hand way.

ScorpioThe heart of this relationship is a Square, and it’s between two pretty stubborn signs. On the down side, I’ve certainly seen these two extract the worst possible behavior for both signs when the two get conflicted. In fact, most Aquarian women have a built–in detector that averts them to the Scorpio grasp. Maybe it’s better that way. Like I’ve alluded to before, I’ve seen this work, but I’ll promise that there is a lot more in the charts than just the sun signs. The Square is a tension–filled angle, and that’s what gives this relationship the spark. Just make sure it doesn’t start a raging bonfire. Or forest fire, if you know what I mean.


Capricorn woman and Virgo man

CapricornVirgo: Virgo man and Cap woman. This has always been interesting to watch. In fact, this is a relationship that will bring many hours of pleasure to your friends. I can’t say that it will bring many hours of pleasure to you, though, although, a decent Virgo male is certainly a good catch. It’s an earth and earth combination, with a solid grounding in reality. Or so it would seem. The Virgo guy, though, has flights of imagination, which can sometimes be interpreted a little too literally by that fine Capricorn mind of yours. Taking something that a guy says too much to your Capricorn heart can hurt. It doesn’t always work out in the best of ways.

VirgoHowever, on paper, this works great. On paper, this is one of the best combinations I’ve seen. On paper, it’s a stellar combination. There are problems in the real world, but that doesn’t mean that it’s not without some real glue. And glue is the stuff that makes people stick together.

Every once in great while, there’s a Virgo who doesn’t complain too much. But as a whole, the sign does seem to have an overly critical eye. This is a the only real source of irritation for these two signs. The nice thing is that the Virgo guy is much less likely to be overly critical as compared with other combinations/ In fact, the mindset of these two signs can be very similar and that’s a good thing.

It was in Shakespeare’s A Midsummer’s Night’s Dream that his character said, “Love looks not with the eyes, but with the mind….” and that’s exactly where this combination can work.


Leo Woman and Aries guy

Aries: The Leo Female is a fine specimen of humanity. So is the Aries male. The good news is that these are two fire signs and that can evoke a great deal of passion.

Problems? I hate to put it this way, most of the problems in this relationship arise from the Leo female in respect (or as we astrologers say, “in aspect”) to the Aries male. You’ve got to understand a little bit more about where he is coming from. Look up the general remarks about the Aries Sun Sign, for starters. Apply some of that to him. He’s stubborn. Okay, so he seems a little headstrong. He’s really not that stubborn, just willful. What you can do is treat him like you would treat a child. Cajole him a little. Console him a little. Act like he’s right.

We both know that you’re the one who is right, but for the sake of appearance, let him think like he is in charge. There’s a good matriarchal model for this found in some of William Faulkner’s literature. In one book, he describes a Southern family that is a matriarchy and is ruled by a bedridden mother figure. This is how your relationship works. You are the seemingly helpless female, and let him come to the rescue. Works very well for you.

In general, all Leo women are princesses, and they all need to be treated as such. And, a truly benevolent ruler runs the kingdom in a manner that lets all the peasant think they matter in the decision making process. So what you want to do is let your Aries man think that it was his idea. It was yours, you and I know that, but he thinks he is helping. This is the easiest way to get along with one of these creatures.

Cancer Female and Libra Male

Libra: A Cancer girl will usually fall right for a Libra guy. That’s good news. That’s even great news, in some cases. But there’s an encumbrance that the Libra guy brings into this relationship, and that little problem is the way he deals with problems. This can drive a poor Cancer woman to the edge. In at least one case, the Cancer woman came to me and asked about jumping off the cliff. I couldn’t really suggest it. However, the thought of pushing her Libra mate off the same cliff wasn’t such a bad idea.

The Libra guy is fun. He’s charming. He’s got a way of being able to sugar coat just about everything. That’s good. His refined actions and tastes indicate that he’s quite the suave character, at least in your book. But there’s always something that doesn’t seem to ring true… on certain occasions, you’re going to feel like he is pulling your leg. You’re going to feel like he’s not as sincere as he seems.

I wouldn’t worry about this apparent lack of sincerity. It’s not really the case. While your little Libra guy might seem to be overly concerned about appearances, that understanding is not all it takes to make this work. There’s also the part that goes on behind closed doors, and I don’t really want to know about the intimate details. However, I’m sure you do, and that’s part of what makes this improbable combination work. It’s the real intimacy, and yes, despite his appearances and smooth talking ways, he is very capable of it.

As with so many relationships, this is a case where the Sun Signs square each other. In traditional astrology, this is a bad angle. Good for attraction, bad for a fight. But the nature of these two signs seems to work okay with each other. And then there’s that other thing, that basic animal attraction that you two always seem to have for each other.

Go for it? That’s up to you. Odds are good, but still odd.

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

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.
