Are you two compatible?

Here’s how to find out.

Astrological compatibility is determined by the position of Venus in an individual’s astrology chart at the time of birth.

The planet Venus represents love, passion, sensuality, beauty, and our social interactions both romantically and platonically.

What we are attracted to in a partner or a friend can be determined by the location of Venus.

Which means, it can also be used to determine what kind of individual the person attracts.

The position of Venus in your birth chart indicates whether we prefer emotional closeness, how much intimacy we are comfortable with, and the amount of affection we desire or are able to express.

Compatibility exists when your personality, mannerisms, and characteristics are in harmony with another’s.

For example, an emotional, nurturing Cancer would likely clash with an Aries’ aloofness and need to dominate the relationship.

A Cancer would be better off with a stable, solid Taurus, who values home and family as much as Cancer, and who would appreciate Cancer’s expressions of love and devotion.

When determining whether two people are compatible, you also have to consider the Elements – Fire, Water, Air, and Earth.

Fire, Water, Air, and Earth signs are generally most compatible with those of their own Element, but the elements may also complement or conflict with each other.

Water Signs

The Water signs – Cancer, Scorpio, and Pisces are complemented by Earth signs – Taurus, Virgo, and Capricorn.

Earth supports and holds Water, and Water, in turn, nurtures the Earth.

But Water signs and Fire Signs – Aries, Leo, and Sagittarius – create a lot of steam when combined.

Fire can be put out by Water, but Fire can also cause Water to evaporate – each has the potential to destroy the other.

Water signs and Air signs (Gemini, Libra, and Aquarius) combined are also prone to conflict.

A Water sign’s need for security and stability can quickly become exasperated with Air’s need for freedom and variety, and vice versa.

In nature, water and air interact to create storms that can be as violent as a tornado or hurricane.

Fire Signs

Fire signs are best matched with Air signs.

Air lets Fire breath, and in turn Fire feeds its energy into Air. A creative, energetic Fire sign meshes well with Air’s need for intellectual fodder and excitement.

Fire’s capriciousness and lack of caution conflict with the Earth signs’ consistency, calm demeanor, and practicality.

In short, Fire scorches Earth, but Earth’s persistence will always outlast Fire.

While the position of Venus on the astrology chart and the Element associated with a particular sign are good indicators of compatibility, they are not written in stone.

You must take the entire astrology chart into consideration in determining how they will relate and react to one another.
