Do We Get Along? Sign-by-Sign

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.

Gemini Female and Capricorn Male

geminiCapricorn: The good news is that the Capricorn is just grounded enough to hold the attention of the Gemini female. The other advantage is that Capricorn’s seem to age in reverse. The older they get, the better they look. The only problem with a Capricorn male is that he’s got a lot of Cardinal energy, and seeing as how Capricorn is ruled by Saturn, there is also a tremendous amount of “karma” involved with this relationship. In popular parlance, the way I like to say it is that there’s definitely a past life connection.

CapricornThe Capricorn male also has a unique sense of humor. While some of the jokes might seem a bit strange to the Gemini female, there will always be that merry little twinkle in his eye. The Cappy guy knows how to have fun, too. And that’s important in this relationship. Often as not, it can seem like there are two overgrown kids here. This makes for a playful relationship, the one problem is that the Capricorn can get set in his ways, and he might not want to deviate from what he’s doing, especially if the relationship impinges on his business time.

Capricorn’s love their money. It’s almost an art form to the Capricorn male, and sometimes the art of the deal is more important than the deal itself. Makes for uninteresting way to relate to each other. When you get around to one those talks about “how do you feel,” remember that a Capricorn guy will try to quantify and qualify everything. It makes it all a much easier load for him to bear. Or, in the case of feelings, it makes it a much easier load for him to bare.


Libra woman and Libra man

Libra: This is a powerful combination, especially the closer together the birthdays are. Sun Conjunct Sun is the technical term. What it means is that relationship will have an excessive amount of Libra energy overflowing from every aspect of where these people touch.

Now here’re the difficulties: we have two generals here. Just who is in command?

I’ve got a couple of friends, a long standing married couple, who are both Libra. I’ve inquired a number of times about the success of the relationship. I know that most Libra folks tend to think that the world revolves around them. It’s the sign of the little general. What happens when one little general meets another? That’s simple, at least in the case of my friends. There is a clear division of labor. He’s the boss at the office. Period. She’s the boss at home. End of discussion.

This way, both the generals have a camp in which they can execute orders. The relationship works quite well just like this. In order to make a Libra and Libra relationship work, the lines of demarcation, the point where one starts and the other starts is necessary. “Who’s the boss?” is not a question that can be tolerated. To get these two to work together, you’ve got firmly establish the diplomatic process, and where the country’s boundaries are. Do this first, and all will be well.


Virgo Female and Virgo Male

Virgo: Same sign relationships face a little bit of a stigma, according to some resources I’ve consulted. But when I look at the couples like this, I’ve always found that there is something here that seems to work pretty well. More often than not though, there is a discrepancy in the traditional Virgo archetype, that neat freak version of a Virgo. One of you two will likely be the messy Virgo. It’s not bad, it just is.

That’s what seems to hold these couples together better than anything else. Even though ya’ll are the same sign, you both bring different versions of this sign together. Makes it work. Makes it work pretty well, as a matter of fact.

There is one chance that this one won’t work. There is one chance that your Virgo guy turns into the creature from the (insert favorite horror film here). There is one chance that this one gets really bad, really ugly, really quickly. There is this one chance that it turns out like a scene from a bad “Z” movie. “Z” movies are way off the scale when it comes to bad, it’s the western with the car tracks and high power electrical wires in the background. The monster movie with the bad monster makeup. So there’s a single chance that this can turn sour. With two Virgo’s, though, I tend to respect this relationship. The rest of the time, it’s like a match made in Heaven.

Heaven, of course, that I’m referring to, is a very small town in West Texas. Maybe it’s called Eden, I don’t recall. Same thing.


Leo guys

Leo guys: the royal sign. The Royal Sign. Anyone who’s ever dealt with one can tell you what a royal pain a disgruntled Leo guy can be. Ruled by the Sun, the basic Leo likes to loll around in the sunshine and work at nothing all day. Although he’s a fire sign, it’s a fixed sign, too. These guys are rotten in a fish camp since they expect everyone else to serve them.

Grocery store: Due to the artistic nature of the Leo, grocery shopping can take on a little bit of an adventure–like quality. Leo’s are hunters, so plan on the foodstuffs themselves having something with bones in it. Could be T–bone, or for the more environmentally conscious Leo types, imagine free–range chicken. Don’t forget that Leo is a fixed sign, and as such, if there is something that deviates from the shopping list, this is bound to upset the Leo. Let the Leo assiduously stick to his list. You’ll be much happier.

Shopping at midnight: This is an interesting case study, what the Leo does after midnight in a giant discount chain store. There is so much to choose from, and what does the Leo look at first? Usually, it winds up being art supplies. I know, and you know that super stores are not always the best place to buy art supplies, but it’s a start. There are pens and crayons and big tablets of paper that will draw the Leo’s attention. Then there’s the jewelry section, too. No, this isn’t the best place to buy the finest gold creations, but all that yellow glitter will surely attract the Leo’s attention, if only for a little while. Finally, and I hate to let anyone know this, there’s the clothing. The Leo will have to have a go at the clothing department, just to see if there’s anything worthwhile. Look on the bright side, in at midnight, out by 4:00 AM.

Brick wall: A Leo is a magnificent creature, tall and proud, good looking and handsome. And a fixed obstacle in front of this Leo is a problem, a big problem. In fact, just such a deviation from the way things should be having this brick wall right in front of the Leo is terribly offensive to our fine specimen. So what does the Leo do? Ever watch the nature shows about the African Lions? It’s just like one of those guys: the male scares up the game, chases it into the clutches of the female. The male then comes in and helps himself to the best cut of meat, relaxes and preens his luxurious mane. Now, when our Leo hits the wall, he’s going to do something similar. He’s going to loudly call attention to the fact that there is an inconvenient obstacle in front of him, and some one had better get over RIGHT NOW, and do something about it. Of course, our Leo might never actually lift a paw to do anything about the wall, but that’s not his job. He just lets us know it was there, and it’s a problem that needs to be addressed right now.

Bait: Live Bait with a spinner — Nothing works better for catching a fixed fire sign fish than Live Bait. Worms, minnows, or even some traditional Japanese cuisine, I hope you get the idea. Live bait has an aura of adventure about it. It’s hard to get them little wigglers onto the hook, if you know what I mean. And that’s the only thing that will really ever catch a Leo’s attention, something that seems to be an adventure.

Body part : Upper back and heart.

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.
