All horoscopes describe signs compatibility, but, unfortunately, most of them give particular cases of some Zodiac pairs and neglect the general principals for everybody. However, these principals are very logical and simple. If you understand them, you will easily figure out who and why is your best match.
According to the classical astrology, the Zodiac signs are compatible if they do not contradict two main rules:
- the signs belong to the same evenness
- the signs are not the same
So, the conclusion from the first rule is the signs must belong to the same element or different, but supplementing each other. As we know, there are four elements. They are Fire, Earth, Air and Water. Within the element all the signs are matching. Besides, all Zodiac sign pairs within two groups – Fire-Air and Earth-Water – are compatible.
Let’s take the signs with their elements and study them thorougly.
The signs of the Fire and Air elements are uneven and the signs of the Earth and Water elements are even. Hence, the signs compatibility both inside the element and inside each two groups is very natural.
Air helps Fire flame up brighter and Water makes Earth more fertile. The compatible signs of the Fire and Air elements are: Aries, Leo, Sagittarius – Gemini, Libra, Aquarius. The compatible signs of the Earth and Water elements: Taurus, Virgo, Capricorn – Cancer, Scorpio, Pisces
The sign pairs of different evenness (Water-Fire, Water-Air, Earth-Fire, Earth-Air) – do not make a positive union. Even, nature shows that these groups of elements contradict each other.
Moreover, there are several characteristic features that influence Zodiac pairing.
