I created the chart below (and subsequent key) to help people understand how the signs interact with one another. Most traditional astrology websites only compare two Sun signs together. However, there are a whole host of other factors that contribute to how a relationship can turn out. You can utilize the chart to check and compare Sun sign connections, Moon sign connections, Mercury sign connections , Venus sign connections and Mars sign connections. Here is a great way to organize things for you to remember:
Sun—> reveals the way we express our ego to our partners
Moon—> reveals the way we express our emotions and deepest fears to our partners
Mercury—> reveals how we communicate with our partners
Venus—>reveals what we value in relationships and how we behave when we are romantically interested in a mate
Mars—> reveals our sex style and sexual compatibility between lovers
So let’s say your Sun sign is Virgo and your partner’s Sun is in Sagittarius. According to the chart below, you two would be incompatible! However, if your Mercury is in Libra and their Mercury is in Sagittarius, this means that you all can find ways to work together and communicate when problems arise since those signs sextile one another. Additionally, if your Moon is in Virgo and their Moon is also in Virgo, you will definitely understand one another’s emotional style and can easily adapt and make adjustments.
**Please note that your Sun sign does not translate to all of your other signs being the same. For example, if you are a Leo, don’t assume that your Moon, Mercury, Venus, and Mars are also in Leo. The only way for you to figure out what constellation (sign) each planet was positioned in on the day of your birth is to complete a natal chart.**
Your signs are conjunct with one another and this leads to an intense relationship. Your communication, love, or sex styles are so similar that you may think you are dating yourself! Negatively, although you have similar positive traits, you also possess similar negative traits. This powerfully forceful union may lack balance if the two of you cannot assuage bad habits and find room to compromise. Overall, this is an “in your face” partnership that offers consistent thrills, and unforgettable memories. Being with your partner is exciting because you all share uncanny parallels.
Your signs trine one another. You and your partner may not be 100% alike, as say a conjunct aspect, but your communication, love or sex styles are alike enough that they are easy to understand. Yet, you guys are different enough from one another to enjoy each other’s company. This union has sustainability because the energy between you two is easy flowing and warm. There is a genuine sense of compatibility and you may feel “natural” when with your partner. You truly enjoy your partner’s company. The two of you complement one another well.
Your signs sextile one another, creating a harmonious bond. You two are not two peas in a pod, but seem to find ways to make the partnership work. You can appreciate the communication, love or sex sign of your partner and vice versa. It’s easy to come together and collaborate. The energy in this union is very positive. This partnership may develop over time: the attraction probably isn’t immediate and you may not be “knocked off your feet” in love at first. However, once your partner has grown on you, you feel very comfortable with the relationship and may plan for longevity.
Your signs are opposites. Initially, you may find one another fascinating, exciting and interesting. Overtime, however, your true personalities will emerge and frustrations are likely to follow. You may have a hard time coming together. If a compromise is not made, this union will not last for very long. Your feelings for one another are never lukewarm and there is no grey area. Either you are completely smitten or completely disgusted. The attraction is powerful and definitely embodies the idea of a “love-hate relationship.”
This union will be plagued with trouble. Your signs are semi-sextile so your communication, love or sex styles are disharmonious. Serious adjustments will need to be made from both parties in order to grow into a comfortable space for the relationship. If both parties can be patient with themselves and with their lovers, this bond has the opportunity to become permanent. You can both learn a lot from one another if given the chance.
Your signs are inconjunct. The attraction that initially brings you and your partner together is overpowering and consuming. You may not necessarily understand how you two find comfort in one another but the “honeymoon” phase in this relationship will be unusually short. You must make adjustments or the partnership will eventually dissolve due to irreparable differences in communication, love or sex styles. The attraction is either there or isn’t. People in a relationship whose signs are inconjunct make an unlikely couple. Others are inclined to ask, “How did they get together?”
Your communication, love or sex style square one another. These constantly clashing issues bring in severe challenges, especially if neither person wants to take the time to understand the other. There is an apparent and upfront difference in personalities. The union will be intense and intoxicating during the fledgling period. You all are fervid and passionate with one another. But overtime, the frequent head butting will become exhausting and you all may end up going your separate ways.
