Zodiac Sign Compatibility
Star Signs Compared in Classical Zodiac Sign Astrology
Comparing the Zodiac Signs of You and Your PartnerYour astrological Zodiac sign, also called your sun sign or star sign, is simply the position of the sun in your horoscope at the moment of your birth. But the complete horoscope includes the planets, the astrological Houses, and the aspects (angles) between planets. That's a whole lot more. Still, some things can be said about compatibility, even when only the Zodiac signs are used.
Complete astrological compatibility predictions use both the full horoscope birth charts of those involved. That's quite complicated. A comparison based only on your Zodiac sun sign can't be very precise, but it does give some general clues, since the sun is almost as important in the horoscope as it is in the sky.
Astrologically, the sun shows your situation and sentiment when you're not involved in other things, for example when you relax or are unoccupied by something special. Your natural state. Some would say: the real you. In a committed relation, that's exactly where you both want to be.
What Zodiac Sign Compatibility Can RevealIn your relationships, being able to relax together is fundamental, so comparing your Zodiac signs says something about how compatible the two of you are. Comparing the positions of your suns in the Zodiac reveals how easy or difficult it is for you to spend amounts of time together and adapt to the basic needs of one another.
Your Zodiac sign compatibility can little but hint on the probability of how long your relation will be, and give mere glimpses of the exact nature of it. But it does give a clue to how comfortable you are together and what might nag you about your partner, as well as what irritates your partner about you.
Your Zodiac sign compatibility shows the basic state of your relationship. The specifics, though, you need the complete horoscope charts to examine.
Zodiac Sign Compatibility of FathersYour Zodiac sign is where the sun is in your horoscope, and in astrology the sun reveals your relation to your father (your mother is represented by the moon). So, your Zodiac sign compatibility will also tell something about how compatible your fathers are to you and your partner, as well as to one another.
Synastry horoscope - two complete horoscope charts combined and compared.
Synastry = CompatibilityWhen examining how compatible you are with other Zodiac signs, you must be aware that other things in your horoscope may suggest something different than what your Zodiac sign compatibility implies. Only your complete horoscope chart gives the whole picture.
So, if you're serious about using astrology to find out how compatible you and your partner are, I recommend that you compare both your complete horoscopes. That's called synastry.
