Do We Get Along? Sign-by-Sign

Virgo guys

VirgoVirgo — poor Virgo, much maligned as the neat–freak perfectionist of the zodiac. Which they usually are, but they do arrive in two flavor: neat and messy. Ruled, more or less, by Mercury. Mutable Earth signs, great for cleaning fish. Although they make great bean counters, don’t let them divvy up the check at the truck stop, as that one waitress you’ve been hittin’ on? She won’t get much of a tip from your Virgo buddy.

Grocery store: If you go grocery shopping with a Virgo, be prepared to read the labels. Or be prepared for the Virgo to read the labels. The packaging itself doesn’t matter, it’s what’s inside that counts, and this is what the Virgo seeks to find out.

Shopping, after midnight: Ever been shopping with a Virgo? Ever thoughts about the number of times someone can squint at a label, and wonder just exactly what part of which animal those things came from? Imagine the scientific curiosity at work here. There’s another problem, though, and one that suggest the results are not all in yet, that this an area which is going to require further research. “I’m not going in a Wal–Mart, please don’t make me go there,” I heard one Virgo girl whine. Good stuff, cheap, didn’t quite work on her. The results are still up for study, as of right now. And most of the Virgo girls I know wouldn’t be up after midnight, anyway, not if there was something else to do, like sleep.

Brick wall: When a Virgo encounters a fixed, immovable obstacle, there is but one solution. First, this brick wall must be disassembled, one grain of mortar at a time. And each single grain of sand that makes up this wall needs to be properly stored and labeled so that it can be reassembled later. Or so that whoever caused this obstacle can be found out and blamed. In any case, the Virgo will assure that this is all done perfectly.

Bait: Crappie Spin “it isn’t just for Crappie, Smallmouth love it too!” –– This is a special lure, designed just for Crappie, but guess what? Smallmouth love it, too. And that’s why it works for Virgo fish: the utilitarian nature of this lure will always attract that ever so practical, but mutable, Virgo. It’s a perfect fit. Besides, just about every Virgo has a taste for the unusual –– that’s why this dual–purpose bait works so well.

Body part: Viscera.


Pisces girl and Sagittarius dude

Sagittarius: There will always be one Pisces girl who will automatically assume that this is about her. No, it’s not. But dear, we will always have Paris. That would Paris, Texas, in case you ain’t up on geography these days.

This is one of those relationships that works against the odds. The odds are figured because we’re looking at two fairly flexible sun signs here, two signs that are a little at odds with each other. Two sun signs that make a pejorative angle to each together. And at it’s heart, Mr. Sagittarius tends to be a little on the flaky side. Well, then, so does Miss Pisces. I’m back at looking at these two like they are very good friends, and any relationship should start with that. However, there is still much which needs to be addressed about this relationship.

Mr. “Life should always be an adventure” can sometimes wear a little thin on the kindhearted Pisces soul. And one can only be so spiritual when dealing with acerbic academic redneck fishing types. Not every Sagittarius is like that, but there’s always a hint there is something waiting over there, and that’s innately appealing for a short period of time. In a longer period, though, it’s not nearly as much fun.

On some occasions, the poor Pisces girl is going to have some trouble with the Sagittarius. “Can’t you just go to the grocery store and not make it a foray into the jungle?” she will moan. His constant striving for one more event, one more grandiose gesture, one more trip can drive her a little crazy at times. It is fun, but you can take this being wacky all the time stuff just a little too far. Being a Sagittarius means we are always trying to see what a “little too far” really means.

If any sign is going to have the patience necessary for Sagittarius, it could well be a Pisces. Of course, our antics might wear you out from time to time.

The appeal here, the straight, physical charm of each sign has a profound effect on affections. It can last for a long time. Just remember that Sagittarius guys are usually better friends than anything else.

“Hey baby, who loves you?”


Virgo woman and Libra man

VirgoLibra: 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.

LibraLet’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.


Aries Female and Aquarius Male

Aquarius: The Aries female needs to be sensitive to the rebellious nature of the Aquarius male. Pretend he is a bird. Slight breezes don’t ruffle his feathers. Major gales, though, something that does threaten his security? Now that does scare him.

Aquarius males are rebels. Sometimes without a clue, but rebels nonetheless. The advantage of this relationship is that Aries is a Cardinal Sign, and the Aquarius is a Fixed Sign. While this is a rule for whatever fixed sign I’m talking about, Aquarius can be the most stubborn of the fixed signs. Unlike other fixed signs, however, the Aquarius male doesn’t let the little changes affect him. Try to make a major shift in his life, though, and watch him fight it to the bitter end.

AriesAquarius is an Air sign, and this intellectual ability can feed the Aries flame. The problem is that the Aries female will react to a situation with a physical reaction, and the Aquarius partner will just think about the next course of action. Resolving this difference between the two signs makes for all the difference in the world. In traditional astrology, the angle between Aries and Aquarius is sixty degrees that means the two suns are “sextile” to each other. While this is considered a beneficial and flowing angle, it does have the single drawback that unless one of the parties takes some action, any action (just DO something), nothing happens. Between the Aries and Aquarius, then I would suggest that the Aries initiate the action. But always let the Aquarius think it was his idea.

Sagittarius woman and Scorpio man

ScorpioScorpio: What do you do when the most sexy sign in the zodiac meets with the other sexiest sign in the zodiac? Mr. Scorpio is alluring. He’s sexy. He’s stimulating. He hints at a prowess that can tame your wild and wanton ways. He’s appealing. He gives you that look, the first time, and you feel like you are standing naked beneath his gaze. He looks you in the eyes and you melt. You have suddenly become one word: toast.

And he’s a Fixed Sign. You knew that this was too good to be true. Guess what? It was too good to be true. It’s not working and it’s not going to work. A good Scorpio guy doesn’t want to date. He wants to take you home and tie you up. It’s not unreasonable—he’s looking for a hostage, not a girlfriend. And you have been captivated by his Scorpio charms, of which there are many.
My, albeit limited experience thus far with Sagittarius women, has been that ya’ll are many things, but one hat you don’t wear too long is the hat which implies “property.” Not all Scorpio guys are like this, at least, not at first. But sooner or later, there comes a time when the Sagittarius yen for freedom unleashes itself, and that when the trouble starts. That’s Trouble with a Capital “T”.

One word of advice, never, ever cross a Scorpio guy. He will seem to carry a grudge to the grave. Scorpio guys have even been known to bring that grudge back across multiple lifetimes. He will remind you of any past indiscretion at a most inopportune moment. He will dredge up previous harms and flaunt them at a time when it is not a good thing. His timing will be impeccable—impeccable from the point of making you suffer. So if you decide to wander from this relationship, make sure that you have clear communication with Mr. Scorpio. Do us both a favor, never cross him or withhold information he might want or need. It’s just not a good idea.
I don’t want to be a voice of doom in this situation, but a typical Sagittarius girl needs a fair amount of warning before getting involved with a Scorpio. Even flirting with a Scorpio guy contains an element of danger. While flirting with danger is fun, the Scorpio guy is serious.

The odds are long on this one. The deck is stacked against you in this relationship. Compassion and understanding, maybe a Scorpio Moon in your chart, and this works well enough for a long–term commitment. But research Mr. Scorpio a little bit before you get involved. He can be a steadfast companion for life. Or an enemy. Depends on how well you deal with him. You will never forget him, that’s for sure.


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.
