Dr Z: Is it possible for a relationship to last and be loving between
a Taurus woman and a Sagittarian man?? I really need to know for i am
in love with a Sagittarian... Your answer is greatly appreciated...
Dr Z: I'm a Scorpio who keeps falling for other Scorpios... I know your
chart says it should be a "Hit." But from my experience... two
Scorpios may be not such a great idea. I've been involved with three
Scorpio men in the past seven years - and as much as I'm crazy about
them, we always manage to have huge difficulties. it makes me
very sad. Hmmm, I wonder why it is. Any thoughts?
Yep, it is absolutely possible for a relationship to last and be loving
between a Taurus woman and a Sagittarian man.
hey! What can I say? Although I'll confirm that the Scorpio/Scorpio
combination can be more than a wee bit challenging and difficult...
it nevertheless, worked out pretty darned well for Scorpio Sun Roy Rogers
and Scorpio Sun Dale Evans... but then, in mentioning the Happy Trails
of good old Roy and Dale, I guess I'm showing my age. (See the Love
Menu section "Sun Sign Compatibilty"
for a list of the traditionally "easy" and "difficult" Sun Sign matches.)
of what I'm about to pontificate about is already contained in the
Love Menu section entitled "Sun Sign Compatibility." But - based
on the numerous emails I receive asking these same sorts of questions
- it obviously can't be repeated or emphasized strongly enough...
seen on this site (and many others) that a match between a Sun Sign
Sagittarius male and a Sun Sign Taurus female is usually not considered
a traditionally "easy" relationship.
And nope, it's not traditionally considered to be an "easy" Sun Sign
match... or you've seen that a match between two Scorpios is potentially
a good match up.
Sign Astrology Compatibility?
There are a zillion popular astrology columns, books and sites "appearing" to
promote the idea that true astrological compatibility can be determined
by the simple comparison of two people's Sun Signs.
Libra lady - wanna know how to turn on your Aquarius man?"
How can I put this nicely? No astrologer (currently among
the living or the dead) can give an informed opinion of compatibility
based solely on two people's Sun Signs.
Heck, I still remember my own sense of astonishment the very first
time I went to visit an astrologer... I had no clue as to how complex
astrology is and/or that all the various planets in our solar system
play a part in our individual birth charts and in determining compatibility.
The Sun, the Moon, Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus,
Neptune and (yes, good old) Pluto all play their own unique roles
in that eternal (infernal) mystery called love. In fact - there are
planets, twelve signs, and twelve houses (and more) that go into
making up our unique personalities.
about it! If Sun Sign compatibility were the "be all" and "end all" of
determining astrological compatibility, then you (and everyone else)
would be compatible with about half the world's population.
a traditionally "easy" or "difficult" Sun Sign placement with another
person will neither make or break a relationship. In a real,
bona fide astrology compatibility reading - the comparison of
Sun Signs is only one of many, many, many factors considered. Sun
Sign compatibility is only a drop in the bucket... Sun Sign compatibility
is only the tip of the iceberg...
Books and Sites?
And all the columns, books and sites written on Sun Sign Astrology
and Sun Sign Compatibility? They're written and published because large
numbers of people enjoy reading (and buying) them.
don't get me wrong... Sun Sign Astrology and Sun Sign Astrology Compatibility
are always a good place to start. Sun Sign Astrology can be
great fun to read about! Sun Sign Compatibility can be fascinating
to dig into and explore a little! And Sun Sign astrology is how most
folks (including me) initially get introduced to the subject of astrology.
And that's, perhaps, why you've surfed to this site.
Sign Astrology and Sun Sign Astrology Compatibility are only a
starting point, and they will never tell the full story about
an individual's chart or the comparison of two people's charts...
it would be great if love and romance were that nice, clean, simple,
and easy. It would save us all from a world of hurt. But... they're
But let's face it! Most folks simply don't have the time, inclination,
or interest in exploring the vast expanses that lie beyond Sun Sign
Astrology. For the average person devoting the necessary years and
years of intensive, purposeful study in order to decipher the labyrinth
of astrological symbolism and interpretations just isn't "in the cards!"
this is exactly why some folks are still willing to pay big bucks
to have a reading done by an experienced astrologer. As with any
profession, the customer is paying for the astrologer's long years
of study and expertise in regard to a highly complex and specialized
subject. Having said all this...
With both questioners, there's obviously some sort of "chemistry
thing" happening. And this generally means there's some sort of strong
attraction going on here which goes far beyond Sun Sign comparisons
there's (more than likely) going to be several explanations for these
individual attractions and repetitive patterns that can be found by
an experienced astrologer when applying various advanced astrological
techniques (such as synastry, composites, astro-mapping, solstice points).
hedged, just now, by saying "more than likely" - because I've occasionally
done chart evaluations and wondered why in the heck the two people
One more thing: No astrologer (currently among the living
or the dead), even when using the most advanced techniques, can give
guarantees that a relationship between two people will last and be
loving... I only wish we could give such guarantees...
I could give guarantees, then I'd be charging the price of a small
country for compatibility readings and be rich beyond my wildest
dreams! Astrologers can point out some of the inherent strengths
and potential rough spots in a relationship. We can even look for
indicators of potential longevity and seriousness of commitment between
the two people.
guarantees? Get real! Not in this lifetime... If these love relationships
are important - then get thee to an astrologer who can do full blown
birth chart and compatibility readings...
