Do Zodiac Signs Truly Affect Relationship Compatibility?
Zodiac Signs and Compatibility
I have dated many different signs in my life and have noticed that the zodiac compatibility charts are just not at all accurate. I am a believer in astrology, and I think it contains a great deal of truth, but when it comes to deciding which signs are compatible or not, I find many inaccuracies.
There is a lot more to zodiac signs than character traits and what to expect from relationships. Many times, compatibility charts will show certain signs as compatible or incompatible. These pronouncements are not based on how the two different signs deal with confrontation or relationships; instead, they are based on what they are attracted to, or what they want from life.
Compatibility: Fire, Air, Earth, and Water
Compatibility charts also work for friends as well as relationships, but even then I have found them to be extremely inaccurate. Usually it seems that what I am meant to be compatible with, I do not get along with and vise versa. The problem is they base whether they are fire, earth, air or water signs and automatically conclude they are not compatible based on it.
For instance, I am a Sagittarius, and as a fire sign, I would not be meant to get along well with earth or water signs because water signs are too sensitive, and earth signs would also be difficult for a Sagittarius. However, they state that being with other fire signs such as Leo and Aries would definitely be a great match. I have had the opposite luck because when you put fire and fire together you will have more fire, and that means fighting and butting heads. Leveling out each other's balance is what really matters in terms of compatibility.
The Inaccuracy of Zodiac Sign Compatibility
There is always some positive to be found with each sign, but for the ones with which we are supposedly incompatible, they are mostly negatives. I have had the best relationships and friendships with Capricorns—who I am said to be incompatible with. The way they come up with how you will be compatible is definitely done incorrectly. What our personalities are like does not determine how well we will get along with someone. As a Sagittarius, I am outgoing and love freedom, but they do not take into consideration my moon sign, ascendant, my other qualities, or my beliefs.
Bottom Line of Zodiac Matches
Many people believe that zodiac signs mean nothing, but there are many others who do believe in them, myself included. Even for those who believe, however, these compatibility charts are just not accurate. Zodiac signs are not individualized and specific all the time, and that has to be taken into consideration.
When we read our daily horoscope, we have to understand that it is the same horoscope for anyone in the world born within that same month of our zodiac sign no matter what the age, race, or gender. If you are dating someone you are meant to have horrible compatibility with, do not fret because it doesn't necessarily mean it is true. Love is not always about how perfectly you can get along, anyway.
The one thing I have found that works is using a partner's zodiac sign to understand their behaviors and needs. You may know many different people of the same zodiac sign, and they will all be very different in terms of their communication styles, etc. It is all about the individual and the love you share.
