Zodiac Signs in Relationship and Astrology
Each zodiacal sign brings a different quality to any relationship, Virgo typically gets along great with other earth signs (Taurus and Capricorn) has good communication with Scorpio and Cancer.
I will address the approach to each zodiac signs in relationship (energy) and how this energy relates to other Zodiacal Sign Energy. You could choose to read the previous sentence as sun sign, however, the little lead on to the “good” stuff helps describe how it really works.
Astrology does not dictate what kind of relationship we should have it describes our attitude toward one, and can help understand the different kinds of relationships we are likely to have.
There are no totally good or totally bad relationships; they are simply each unique and different. Some are easy and some more of a challenge and as life is about growth and change, the challenging ones bring us the most of that growth and change.
None of us is completely typical of anyone zodiacal sign. Each one of us has some quality typical of each and every zodiac. We have all become accustomed to the division set out by sun sign columns. When it comes to relationships the male and female planets Mars and Venus have a lot to say, i.e. their energies represent the actions, mode of operation and desires and needs respectively. Most relationships have an emotional component of some kind. This is the Moon’s domain. In most relationships, we need to communicate and principally this is a Mercury activity.
How Astrologers Analyze a Zodiac Signs in relationship?
When astrologers analyze a relationship they not only look at your natal chart (Horoscope) with it 10 planets, miscellaneous other points as well as the 12 signs and 12 houses.
Astrologers also look at aspects between the planets and may cast progressed charts for you. In addition, your chart is compared with that of the other to see what type of interaction is taking place. In reading the following descriptions for signs take into consideration that it is not only the Sun that these apply to.
Just to give you an example – You may be a Taurus with an Aquarius Moon and Venus might be in Aries for you… Not only do the qualities of Taurus apply to you, what if your Mars is in Capricorn. Mercury and Venus stay close to the Sun the farthest Venus ventures from the Sun is 47°
(Meaning that if you were born with an early degree Taurus Sun you could have Venus all the way back in Pisces. If you were born at the end of Taurus and we add that same 47° then you might have Venus in Cancer).
Typically Venus is in the same sign or the adjacent sign than the Sun. Mercury is the same. Mars and the Moon can be any sign. The Moon changes signs every 2½ days and Mars takes 2 years to travel through the signs of the Zodiac and Tarot. Bottom line you are more complex than just what the Sun sign would lead you to believe and so is your significant other.
The adjacent chart shows all the zodiac signs in relationship around a chart wheel, which is dissected into twelve segments.
The Signs are of Four Colours:-
- Red for fire – inspiration – signs which relate well with each other as they operate from the same model.
- The same applies to all the deep blue signs, which share the element of water – emotion.
- The green signs are earth -practicality – signs, which also share a harmonious relationship with one another.
- The turquoise signs are air – intellect – signs, and likewise are well matched.
The next in good matches is between signs that skip one, i.e. green with blue and red with turquoise. This is what we typically read in short intros to signs on the web and in the magazines.
Red and blue, i.e. fire and water are not put high on the list of good partners neither is the pairing of turquoise with green, i.e. air with the earth.
There are no all good or all bad things in life – there are just different sets of circumstances – some of us better equipped with handling a so-called challenging relationship. This aspect is between these two pairings of elements is a square – 90° – and it is an aspect of friction, action and sometimes aggravation. Remember from chemistry – friction creates sparks, and you may like the excitement of sparks.
The Basics of Astrology and Zodiac Signs
Today, there are three main branches of astrology, namely the Chinese or East Asian astrology, Western astrology and the Indian or Jyotish astrology. The Western astrology is by far, the most popular astrology system used in the Western Countries. This astrology system first originated during the 2nd millennium BC in Mesopotamia. This is where it started to spread all around the world. After this system was spread to Egypt, further developments were made. This was then spread to Greek was a Greek astronomer/astrologer, Claudius Ptolemaeus (A.K.A Ptolemy), set the foundations of Western tradition in his work, Tetrabiblos.
Although there are might be some great similarities of the various astrological concepts, the Ptolemy system is very much different than the concepts we use today; that is when it comes to the understanding of the universe. The universe in Ptolemy’s concept was geocentric. This means that his universe has the Earth in the middle with the rest of the planets orbiting/rotating in series of complicated cycles and epicycles (which means cycles within cycles). Ptolemy’s concept of understanding the universe was used until around the late 1500s. This was when Kepler and Copernicus came into the picture. The work which they did was widely understood. This, in turn, boosted its popularity and became widely known to the world.
Astrology and other various arts went downhill when the Scientific Revolution became popular and astronomy gained respect. However, Astrology enjoyed some small revivals during the 1700s to the 1800’s in England. During the year 1930, when Princess Margaret was born, Astrology once again gained its popularity. In that year which Princess Margaret was born, the astrological profile of the princess was printed on the London Sunday Express. This has led to our modern-day horoscope column in various newspapers.
During the Dark Ages, the priesthood had the right and privilege to study the science of astrology. Astrology was used for leaders to run a successful kingdom and also for the benefit of their daily lives.
The western astrology is basically based on the horoscope construction for the most precise moment in time, which includes the birth of a human, which is said that the different cosmic bodies play a certain part in its influence. Astrology is, in fact, an ancient science which is a mix of psychology and astronomy. Being used and studied by the world, the study of the interactions which occur among the planets and stars that are widely based on complex mathematical cycles.
Astrology has become so popular nowadays that one need not go to great lengths to find any information about it; this means that it is extremely accessible. One need not have the knowledge of any classical languages to be able to understand astrology as Astrology is readily available in your mother tongue.
Indian Zodiac and Astrology
Indian zodiac traditions have outlasted millennia of other religious and talismanic systems of stellar interpretations and detoxifying. The Indian zodiac remains at the forefront of all the commonly known religious forecasting methodologies. Indian zodiac organization and houses, names of gods and personified astrological systems of forecasting star signs and futures of each sign have an extended but time seasoned chart methodology.
For centuries, the advent of a marriage in the family or an epoch-making family event has been examined under the criteria of the birth sign and astrological symbols. Indian zodiac applications have used in studies of synastry or combination of two signs (such as two people) and the likelihood of astral probability of happiness and a good future.
By plotting the birth signs through their astral signifiers, Indian matchmakers, soothsayers, astrologists and individuals can apply time-honoured rules of celestial navigation of earth, water, fire and stellar signs and elements to a complex system of intertwining prophecy. Various elements of marriage, love, family life and karma are interpreted within the dynamics of the intersecting astral houses.
Indian Zodiac Theory
Indian zodiac theory uses birth date and the astral symbols, animals, traditions, and myths associated with the specialized totems of that house to predict the future. Success, wealth, health, circumstances of death and personal relationships suffuse the lexicon of assigned astral signifiers of the Indian zodiac. These pairings form a map for likely marriage arrangements and family futures.
Indian zodiac functions on the level of the sacred. The birth star is highly deterministic in establishing what type of soul and spirit karma is in store. The psychology of the soul is reducible to movements of the stars and planets relative to one another and regular systems of movement. Deviation in these patterns and revolving astral relationships relative to fixed astral progressions demonstrate possible compatibilities in the respective persons.
Birth rashis are the predominant stars that claim eminence under a person’s birth date and time. These types of stars can be used to assess the ultimate compatibility of two people. If someone under the Mrigasira star, of learning, position, and high minded views of life, were to be plotted with a Makha-born commanding but weaker morally tendency individual, problems could conceivably arise.
Conversely, a groom or bride can approach a matchmaker with an attempt to find a suitable birth sign. Personality traits of the prevailing star can be precluded as stepping stones to finding a suitable wedding match. Indian astrology is called Jyotish, as a function of enlightened wisdom and the Grahas, the nine planets.
Indian astrology has been upheld for millennia and evolved in understanding from the Vedic scriptures Indians long held sacred. Indian zodiac mythology is celebrated in a widespread societal framework and has related symbolic functions in art, statuary, scripture, stories, dance, and modern culture.
Integral understanding is required to plot an astral chart in Indian zodiac sciences. Jyotish includes astral movements of descendants, lagans, variants, or eleven planets or Bhava houses operate along a zodiac belt. The respective aspects each planet faces relative to other houses and heavenly bodies, and the mapped progress of other stars, planets, and gravitational to each other astrological body toward determines the intervening presaged future.
Arranged marriages in India have taken place for thousands of years. Consulting one’s astrological chart is a necessary part of this centuries old tradition in even the most contemporary situations. Indian zodiac studies blend with practices of applying gems, charkas, fasting and other symbolic rites to encourage and experience the working through of various astrological possibilities.
