Opposites Attract In Astrology
Of course opposites attract in the astrology world! People still feel that pull, that urge that makes you want to get to know someone better, the feeling that makes you hang onto their every word, to reach out and…well, you get the idea. There are six pairs of opposing signs in the zodiac, or some call it the 7-7 pattern, as you will see on the karmic astrology wheel. If you count signs, each opposite will be seven signs away from its mate. When we discuss opposites in astrololgy, the one sign has and needs what the opposite one lacks. So they make each other complete. Of course, it's not always quite that easy, but it can be. This pair also wants the same things from life, they just have different ways of approaching their goals. So without further ado, the couples are:
The Aries/Libra Couple
Aries is a fire sign, Libra is an air sign, and fire needs air to burn. Aries people are blunt and to the point, making swift decisions, which may not be very well thought out. Libra is ruled by Venus, so they have a harmonious and soothing nature. Since the scales symbolize Libra though, it can take them forever to make up their minds. They think about every little thing from every point of view. Librans can charm you so easily that you may not even realize what you are agreeing to! They make great lawyers, because they can argue a point for hours and wrap anyone around their little finger. This can make an Aries person crazy.
Another possible area of disagreement is that when an Aries person wants something, it can sound like a demand. Are they telling or asking? This attitude can seem rude, pushy, and impulsive. But when these two are under each other’s spell, the Aries will offer that big, open smile, and the Libran will be won over. When an Aries person gets angry, it’s over fast, like a thunderstorm. They are very forgiving. Aries people understand that Libran decisions are fair and logical, and respect that. Librans hear the word “decision” and they get nervous. Aries just dives in, thinks fast, then handles the situation.
Libra wants to play it safe, but that can get boring. So Librans admire the Aries style of just doing what they think should be done and forgetting about it. Since Aries is the fire sign, one would probably think they have the most dangerous temper, right? Well, not really. Think about what air does, as in tornadoes, hurricanes or cyclones. Most people think Venus ruled Librans are always sweet and calm. And most of the time, they are. Just make sure you do not push them too far. You do not want those scales to tip!
Both Aries and Libra Want to Be the Leader
Another issue here is that both Aries and Libra are cardinal signs of leadership, meaning they both want their own way. Librans just want to win to achieve justice and peace. Aries wants to win just to prove they are right. They have a bit of an ego to protect. Most partnerships of Aries and Libra will be a great experience for both. What could be better than having an affair with the one who has all the traits you lack? Librans are free thinkers and act on their thoughts, which will make the Aries person feel more confident than they are (they lack confidence, but I didn’t tell you that). Libran kindness and gentleness will bring out the best in an Aries. The Aries person is more balanced and tolerant when with a Libran person, because their individuality is respected. The Libran may find that they are making more firm decisions, and inspired into higher achievements on a personal level when their Aries love is around.
The Aries ram will try to understand that the Libran needs to conserve energy to maintain balance, they aren’t just lazy. Most people are not as energetic as an Aries, with that Mars rulership. If the Aries truly tries to see both sides of a disagreement, the Libran will respond with affection and encouragement. A Libran does not like to be crabby or argumentative, but Aries must learn to fight fair. Once the Aries decides not to be unreasonable in their expectations, they will be rewarded with that famous Libran dimple. The Libran is usually right anyway, and Aries can never carry a grudge for long. What argument?

Libra Scales of Justice
The Taurus/Scorpio Couple
Just like all opposites, Taurus and Scorpio both sense that the other has the missing qualities that would make each feel complete and whole. However, both of these signs are fixed signs, and that means stubborn, my friend. Scorpios are as sexy, secretive, and psychic as they are rumored to be, but they hide that all very well when they want. They can be snakes if they act on their lower instincts, or eagles if they soar to their highest. They are boiling cauldrons of emotion, and that can be scary. Scorpios are very sentimental, something that shocks people once they catch on to it. They really know how to hide behind whichever façade they are using, and you will know them for years before you see the sentimentality. Scorpios are surprisingly gentle with those that they love. But they can go from sweet and gentle to cold and intimidating very quickly.
A Taurus person has trouble understanding this, because they are very straight forward, what you see is what you get. Taurus is ruled by Earth, and they are sensible, dependable, patient, and determined. They do not have the Scorpio’s regenerative potential, but they do possess genuine inner calm that a Scorpio longs to have. And Taurus can match Scorpio in the determination department too. But Taurus would love to understand how Scorpio just knows things, in their psychic way.
Taurus is Sensible & Scorpio is Psychic
Taurus people are hard workers who want security, and if they knew all the things a Scorpio does, that knowledge could be put to good use as they build their lives. But Scorpio wishes they could weather life’s storms as calmly as a Taurus, they could accomplish more that way. So when these two come together and share these virtues, they can change many things for the better. This relationship will be many things, but never boring or bland. Scorpio can be sarcastic when angry, and a Taurus is hurt by that. They think a person can just say what needs to be said, and there is no need to embellish it or try to be mean. Scorpions sting when they are angry though. Taurus just likes to be direct. Although you do not want to upset the Bull too much, they do have a tolerance level that ends at some point.
Two Hardworking Signs Who Respect Each Other's Boundaries
Taurus people have a great sense of humor and of the ridiculous, but they can be prone to self-pity. Scorpio has a sense of humor, but does not like to let their vulnerability show. Taurus people make them feel safer. Both of them are reserved people, until you get to know them better. Neither speaks much unless they really have something important to say. They prefer it when people mind their own business. Scorpio will go to great lengths to keep their secrets private, even if they have to lie. A Taurus actually will just tell you to “mind your own business.” They do not turn everything into a drama like Scorpios do. Both signs are very loyal, especially if it is to each other. When they fall in love and trust each other, these two can move mountains together. They will be possessive of each other, but it’s all kind of cozy and warm, because they know neither will ever let the other go.

The Gemini/Sagittarius Couple
Most people think that all Sagittarians are active and outgoing, but there are actually ones that are rather quiet and shy. All of them are honest and speak with candor when asked what they think. They look at the world through a lens of truth. Now, Gemini is the sign of the twins, so since we know there are two sides to them, and that the Sag can be either the quiet or more talkative one, we realize it’s almost as if there are four people in this relationship instead of two!
A Sagittarian has a gift for just blurting out zingers, they cannot help it. But they are never mean spirited and normally their observations are correct. These people are wise and witty, honest and youthful in spirit. Gemini natives are very intelligent and mentally active people. A Gemini can persuade a Sagittarian to try to do something that he or she would not normally consider. A Gemini needs the Sagittarian’s high ideals, warmth, enthusiasm and sincerity, because sometimes a Gemini can be cold, and they like to play head games with people. This can be difficult.
This partnership can go two ways. Each can admire the traits in the other and try to imitate them to grow spiritually. They could also fear and envy the opposite qualities in each other, and keep putting each other down, thus hurting each other’s pride. Both parties are daring and do things on a big scale. They are not necessarily dependable or enduring. Both have great minds, but the achievements they accomplish together are not usually ones that last, they are normally more fleeting in nature. Think of them like two shooting stars! They can accomplish great things in short time period, but a project of longer duration may not pan out because they are not wired for patience or the strength to keep on the course for a long time.
Gemini Must Choose Words Carefully with Sagittarius
They have great compatibility to hang around, since Mercury and Jupiter people do like each other. But a sly Gemini may needle or be tactless to the sincere Sagittarian just because that’s what they do, and the Sagittarian will be very hurt and very angered by this. A Sag almost always takes the high road, for although they are emotional fire people, they are without guile. They will call you on it if you are getting judgmental or venting and do not really mean the nasty things you are saying.
Clever and glib Geminis like to play mind games, and do not understand that this is painful to others. Their minds are always working at a high speed. But their basic nature is sunny, cheerful and optimistic, just less so than a Sagittarian. The Sagittarians are blunt and do not always have tact, but they are never sarcastic. Sometimes the Sag can even get a quieter Gemini to speak their truth in a better, kinder way. But these two do not always listen when the other is speaking, they are already thinking of what they want to say next instead!
They are always competitive with each other, but in a playful spirit. They will help each other over tough times, and learn how to better communicate with each other in time. They can reach each other through poetry or art, and they love to dream together. As far as moods go, both are mostly enthused and excited about something much of the time. They share Jupiter’s luck and Mercury’s alertness, and together they normally experience a lot of good fortune and help from others around them. Both like to go out, they love being with other people, and they like to entertain. They enjoy children, pets, and the outdoors, although the Gemini may have allergies. This can be a great love match as long as they learn how to speak nicely to each other and take the time to listen to each other. Really listen, and try to give each one what it is that they need.

The Sagittarius Archer
The Cancer/Capricorn Couple
This is another Water/Earth combination, like Taurus and Scorpio. But the dynamic is different, as Cancer and Capricorn are both cardinal signs of leadership. Both are ambitious achievers, and both are very adaptable about change. Well, Cancer is very adaptable to change, Capricorn will change if there is enough benefit in it. But they are both conservative when it comes to love and family issues. So these two people can find common ground quite easily. Both have maternal or paternal instincts, and will enjoy taking care of each other.
Cancers and Capricorns Love to Be Pampered
Cancers can also be over emotional, and there will be times when the Capricorn will be exasperated with trying to understand Cancer’s moods. When Capricorn works many hours, they may not want so many people coming over to visit and party. But Cancer has a retiring side and likes a quiet day at home as much as anyone. And speaking of home, they both have a keen interest in real estate, which could very likely be the field one or both work in. Banking and accounting are other choices, as they both are also very careful how they spend their money, and knowledgeable about it. So this pair has a lot going for them.
Capricorn will not enjoy as busy a social life as a Cancer, as Cancer craves change and likes to try new things. Capricorn is not as extroverted, even if they try to be. So this can be an issue if the Cancerian gets too bored. Cancer people secretly like it when people try to take care of them, but not if they overdo it.
It’s a hard act to juggle, because Cancerians may act helpless, but they are very self sufficient, thank you. Try telling them what they should or should not do one too many times, and you will feel the change in the auric field around you very fast. Cancer people are psychic water signs, and they are very changeable. Think about the ocean, how it’s always moving, and always has changing shades of blues and greens. Capricorn has to keep up with Cancer, and it’s a tall order. Their moods change several times in an hour, and Cancers talk about four subjects at a time. What are they talking about? What to have for dinner, or the gift for Saturday's party?
Capricorns Are More Emotional Than You Think
Cancer people are emotional and just ooze warmth and kindness, which definitely attracts a Capricorn, who loves to be fussed over but would never admit it. The Capricorn has a serious and practical side that will appeal to Cancer, but has a good sense of humor as well, which is a bonus. These two will lock eyes across the room and feel their hearts beating faster. They will feel comfortable with each other too, and for some reason do not have to pretend, or put on a show of good behavior in the beginning stages of the relationship. Both are somewhat reserved and shy, and will slowly get to know each other better. Neither one likes to rush into anything without thought.
They are a little old fashioned, and I am getting a mental picture of two people having tea, with Grandmother’s best china and silver, just sitting in the parlor, relaxing and talking, loving the ceremonial feel of it. Cancer and Capricorn like ceremonies, oh, say, like weddings, for instance. Just the fact they continue to see each other means this is serious, these two signs do not like to waste time.
Capricorns are the most ambitious sign, and if they work so much they do not make enough time for the Cancerian, feelings will be hurt. Cancers need lots of love and attention, and they like to go out a lot. They like gifts and little expressions of love and appreciation, as they are more insecure than they admit. But like their symbol, the crab, they have a tough shell. They may be crying after the Capricorn walks out after a fight, and then will calmly meditate or clean out a closet. Cancers are much stronger than people give them credit for. They are often described as clinging vine crybabies, but they can run a corporation or be the rock that holds the family together during the most terrible crisis. Do not underestimate them.
Each Sign Has Traits the Other Sign Wants to Cultivate
Capricorns have more trouble expressing their emotions, but Cancers are sensitive and romantic, so can teach Capricorn a thing or two about romance, to be more expressive in both public and private. Capricorns need to know they are appreciated too, but will not say so. They really are so much the same, and sometimes when they have problems good friends can make them see the light.
Both are gentle and private people. But they are proud, and if they have a falling out, it can be very difficult for them to get back together again. Once bitten, twice shy, as they say. Like all opposites, each has what the other wants. Success at the relationship can have to do with their ages. Since they view life in so much the same way, they can make a very happy life together. The chances of their staying together get better if they are older and have more life experience. But if they keep breaking up over little things, and move on from each other, they will always remember each other as the love of their life. The timing just wasn’t right.
Cancer the Crab
Capricorn the Goat
The Leo and Aquarius Couple
Once again we have two fixed signs, and this combination may be more difficult than the Taurus/Scorpio one. A Leo and Aquarian must learn to blend their opposing forces. Leos are very graceful, and they command attention when they walk into a room. They are natural leaders, and used to getting their own way without fighting about it. Aquarians just accept life in all its craziness, and feel comfortable being their own independent and interesting selves. So what if people find their ideas unusual or think that their purple and orange hair is weird? Leos are afraid to let their hair down, to let others see their inner warmth and passion. An Aquarian can seem cool and indifferent, but they live largely in their minds, and are concerned with the larger mysteries of Life, The Universe, and Everything.
Leos worry too much about what others think of them, let their minds rule their emotions, then regret it later. An Aquarian person wonders if there is more to human contact than intellectual communication. Once a Leo puts a spell on them, they understand that love is joyous, incredible, fulfilling. But it’s hard for an Aquarian to be demonstrative or affectionate, and it’s hard for a Leo to stop holding back, afraid of looking undignified. The Leo must learn that there is no loss of self respect in loving a person in an honest and intimate way. Aquarians accept life and people effortlessly. Leos want to do that, but have too much pride. Aquarians have great freedom of expression, and the ability to be detached and unemotional when it is necessary.
Leo passions have a way of ruling them, even though they too can act calm and aloof when that is not the way they really feel. Leos are ruled by the Sun, and need to be made to feel like a King or Queen, as they do have that regal bearing. They feel neglected fairly easily, and need constant admiration. Aquarians are air signs, and will invite Leos into their thoughts, and think that is enough to show how much they really care. An air ruled Aquarian hints and suggests, but never comes out to say “I love you.” Or maybe it will be said once. Aquarians do not live in the past and are not redundant. They figure saying something once should be enough, that they can express feelings in other ways.
Leos Express Themselves in Words, Aquarians Through Actions
Aquarians are not direct and forthcoming as Leos are. Compliments and flattering speeches do not come easily to Aquarians, they feel funny expressing love in words. They would rather write a poem, or draw a picture. Leo needs to realize that Aquarians are unpredictable and a bit eccentric, but highly intelligent and special people. They do not give their love away easily. The Aquarian figures once something is said, it stands until something different is said. They do not feel a need to constantly flatter someone, and are not hypocrites, they live what they believe. Period. The Leo has to learn that they can say they love a certain food, and the next day the Aquarian can cook it for them like a French chef. The Aquarian will be beside themselves when “Sam” dies, and the Leo will be shocked to find Sam was a pigeon their love used to feed every day while eating lunch in the park. The Leo is noble and generous, something they both have in common. Leo has deep fires burning underneath their surface, and the Aquarian should never toy with them. But Leo has to learn that a mate will not be submissive to them, maybe they think they are Kings and Queens, but they are the same as everyone else.
Leos and Aquarians are Generous To Everyone
Both signs are efficient organizers, one more thing both signs have in common. Together they can do great work for charity or any cause they both feel worth their time. They just have problems organizing their emotional reactions as well as they organize and categorize everything else. They love to surprise each other and shower each other with gifts. They are creative and love to travel together. But Aquarians pick up strays and make friends with everyone, and a Leo is more selective. Leos are also jealous. Aquarians have so much going on they will not always make a Leo the center of their world, a big no-no for Leo. It is best to be the first love of an Aquarian. They will always remember their first love fondly, even if it was a platonic friendship (and Aquarians want their lovers to be their best friends too). Once Aquarian lives become more filled with causes and charities, a Leo mate will still be important, but may not get the regal treatment they think they deserve from everyone. If Leo is mature enough to understand they are loved but cannot always be at the center of someone’s life every single minute, this relationship can work. But the 7-7 pattern is a difficult one, as we are seeing as we go down the list.
Leo the Lion
Aquarius the Water Bearer
The Virgo and Pisces Couple
This combination is another of the Earth and Water variety, and possibly the easier one. Virgos are very efficient and orderly people, who can locate dates and information on people, problems, worries, situations, frustrations, you name it. They are never late, and their checkbooks always balance. They sleep enough, eat properly, and keep their possessions in systematic order. A Piscean is opposite of all that nonsense. Their house or apartment will look like a tornado just passed through it. It’s a charming mess of color and confusion. They know all kinds of stuff is in the nooks and crannies, and don’t even want Virgos poking around there. Yet there is a mystical feeling of peace and quiet there anyway. How is this possible? Honestly, Pisces people consciously would like to acquire those neat Virgo traits. On some level they realize that they need less daydreaming and relaxing, less procrastination and more tidiness.
Virgos and Pisceans Fascinate Each Other
So Piceans are fascinated with Virgos. Both are born under mutable signs, so they get along well, being changeable and easily influenced, despite their differences. Plus they are both shy and reserved with strangers. Virgo minds are so acute and alert, it seems they don’t think enough about the unconscious. They look at all their thoughts to be sure they aren’t missing any details. Pisces has the Neptune talent for daydreaming and wishing, and because they do, often their dreams come true. A Pisces can make their wishes true and manifest them into reality just by continually thinking positive thoughts. Their faith in "The All”, or cosmic mind, the great collective subconscious, allows these great things to happen. I have discussed "The All" in the Seven Hermetic Laws.
Now, Virgos have patience, but fussing and worrying doesn’t make dreams come true. Faith does, and Pisceans have it in spades. They may as well be sprinkled with fairy dust. Pisceans have such colorful auras that they are detected in the astral plane, and there is that old metaphysical law about light attracting darkness. They are sensitive, psychic and can read you like a book. But their energy can be depleted by helping strangers or just by their ability to pick up the vibes of everyone’s joys and sorrows. This can be a blessing and a curse, the reason why Pisces is symbolized by two fish, each swimming in different directions. Being sensitive or psychic is always accompanied by being exceptionally creative, and if this gift is not encouraged in childhood, this talent can be brought back in elder years, but only through meditation and other techniques. So Pisceans must be on guard because their strong imaginations may cloud their impressionable minds.
A Great and Surprisingly Sexy Couple
Virgos can help Pisceans bring out the bright colors or best of their ideas, and help turn them away from negativity. But now the Virgo’s aura has been affected too, and they will be getting visitors from the astral plane as well! Before we get to the romantic stuff, both Virgo and Pisces have a fetish for shoes and feet. If you don’t believe it, go look in their closet and count how many pairs of shoes they own. Aha! Anyway, Virgo will be thrilled that a Pisces is interested in listening to talk about shoes. Pisces will also be surprised that someone else cares about such a subject.
Pisceans are so kind about listening to others, they are shocked to find people like to listen to them too, although they are amazing storytellers. They are old souls who have experienced many incarnations. Soon one of them will snuggle closer, and it will be obvious they are interested in more than each other’s shoes!
Virgo will have that lovely sparkle in those beautiful, clear, intelligent eyes, and confide that their feet sometimes get cold. Pisces will immediately make a move to be sure the Virgo is getting warmed up in a big hug. Now a Virgo never has sex on the first night. But the lure of a Pisces is strong and unexpectedly seductive, and pretty soon they will both be wrapped securely in each other’s hearts. The sexual attraction between the Virgin and the Fish is terrific, both are natural lovers. They may fight about other things, but never about sex. They both are instinctively unselfish, and gently giving in a way that is fulfilling and peaceful, supported by great affection
Virgos Worry About Money, Pisces Worries About the Future
Unfortunately, they will not be as good at sharing money. Pisces could not care less, they will give money away. But Virgo is an Earth sign, and not so willing to part with cash. Virgos can be very critical, and will harp on it when a Pisces is too generous. The constant nagging is a bad Virgo fault that may begin to bother the Piscean. A Piscean who begins to be unhappy may begin drinking or taking drugs, staying out late to talk to less critical people, or find solace in daydreaming. A Virgo does have common sense, and may realize that this dreamer was the person they fell in love with, and overlook all except the traits that were first loved.
Pisces must understand the Earth person will be very hurt if secrets are kept. Virgos only worry because they care so much. The Pisces one must realize that a Virgo who really cares about their future together and peace of mind is truly a Godsend. Piceans are not very good at looking after themselves. Virgo undergoes great inner anxiety when their relationship has no clear and defined future goals. It would not be a bad thing to let the Virgo lead the way for a while. Once they get safe and secure as a couple, the Virgo will be happy to study Neptune’s mysteries once again. These two will travel far together, and love to talk to each other, because they communicate so well. They can discuss their problems and find solutions. They both find each other magnetically attractive, their love makes them feel so safe and secure in each other. So if they try hard, they can dream together forever.

Questions & Answers
Question: How does a Capricorn make a Cancer feel when they are in love?
Answer: I am a Cancer, and my first love was a Capricorn. I fell head over heels right from the start; it felt like it was cosmic and meant to be. I was young, 15, and he was four years older than me. My parents hated him; family is a big issue with Cancers and Capricorns. I know he loved me too, and we saw each other on and off for about four years. But opposites always feel that pull. We didn't have the same backgrounds, and by the end, I still loved him but accepted it would always be like that. My theory is if someone leaves you once because of problems, they will again.
Your opposite is one of your soulmates, but that doesn't mean it will be forever. I never forgot my first love. It's powerful. Be careful. It's a blessing and a curse! You will learn lessons from the relationship. I did, but too personal to discuss here.
Question: Would an Aries and a Virgo go well together?
Answer: I usually don't think a fire sign like Aries will get along well with an earth sign like Virgo. Aries people are fun and impulsive and like to show off, and they need lots of attention. Virgos are intellectually curious but are more cautious in their approach to life. Virgos are planners, and Aries have never heard that word.
Question: Can a Virgo woman fall in love with a Gemini man?
Answer: Any zodiac sign can fall in love with any zodiac sign. Gemini and Virgo are what we call mutable signs. Both communicate well but have different styles. The Virgo woman is more practical and organized in thoughts and speech. She is also critical and has exacting standards. The Gemini man is thinking about ten things at once, interested, and talking about them all. You have to sort it out. Gemini is less serious, as the air sign.
The two signs are in a square aspect, meaning there will be challenges and chemistry. You are both changeable and get bored fast, what mutable signs do. But don't let that discourage you. You both have 9 other planets in signs and houses and all the other planetary aspects. Give it some time.
Question: How well would a Sagittarius woman and Libra man get along?
Answer: Fire and air signs are compatible. Sag people don't judge others and are interesting and easy to be with. Libras are smart and ambitious, and both are outgoing and friendly. Fire (Sag) needs Air (Libra) to burn. It's good unless there are other things I don't know about in the chart. It's a good start.
Question: What do you think about a relationship between a Capricorn man and Sagittarius woman?
Answer: Usually, signs next to each other have similar views about the subjects which matter. If we drew out a real horoscope, we would be likely to find that he has planets in Sagittarius, and you have planets in Capricorn, increasing the odds you would understand each other. So, why not?
Question: How well would a Libra woman and Cancer man get along?
Answer: This is called a square aspect, which although challenging, can be exciting as well. Both are cardinal leadership signs, so you both have goals and plans for the future, and the ambition to carry them out unless other planetary influences in the charts say otherwise. The Libra is ruled by the head, but Libras likes balance and doesn't like to argue. Cancer is more sensitive, but both of you communicate well, so will talk your problems out. It's not a lot of info to go on, but I don't think it will be an issue. See what happens!
Question: How well would a Scorpio woman and her Sagittarius mate get along?
Answer: Going on Sun signs alone is very little information for me to really interpret or to know about either one of you. But normally, zodiac signs next to each other understand each other, and I know many such successful couples. Mercury and Venus are the closest planets to the Sun. So Mercury (how you think) for a Scorpio could be in Sag. Or vice versa. Venus, (social life, what you want in love) can also be in the sign next to you, so this helps communication and can actually describe the person or type who attracts you, and the sign next to you can be it. It works both ways. The Scorpio can have Mercury in Scorpio, Sag, or even Libra. The Sag can have Mercury in Sag, Scorpio, or Capricorn, and that would still be compatible with Scorpio. If you go to CafeAstrology.com, it's a site I trust (unless you want a whole natal birth chart, come to me)! and you can find out what zodiac signs all your planets are in, and most importantly, the houses.
Question: Virgo man and Taurus woman?
Answer: This is very little to go on, as all ten planets are in a zodiac sign, a house, and make aspects to other planets. Both are Earth signs, so basically it's a trine aspect, so it should be a relationship which just flows very easily. But there are so many other factors involved, and all of them can change this. Try it and see how it goes. The Virgo is sensible and reliable, so is the Taurus. He may be critical, being a Virgo, but is a good communicator, and cares about his health and yours if you get serious. A Taurus woman is sexy and also down to earth and kind, being ruled by Venus makes it a romantic sign. Taurus is a fixed sign, so the Taurus is more stubborn. I hope that helps a little.
Question: During a water sign season cusp, like Cancer or Pisces, what dates are the most cosmically charged for a position change?
Answer: There aren't really any dates on a cusp, EVERY day the sun is in a specific Zodiac sign, or it may change signs during the course of the day, so you need the Month, Day, Year, and time of birth to find a Sun sign. A whole horoscope has to be cast to find the best dates for specific things. The houses matter, the distances between planets matter. Each chart is very different.
Question: How compatible are a Capricorn man and Libra woman?
Answer: It takes a lot more than knowing a Sun sign to be able to answer a question like that. In my astrology articles, my efforts are to teach people the truth about astrology. Every planet and your Moon is in an astrology sign, and there are 12 houses which all have meanings. The distance between each planet matters. So does the Date, Time and Place of Birth.
But the quick answer you want is that it will be a challenging relationship. Capricorn and Libra are both leadership signs that are very ambitious people. The Libra woman thinks she's a Queen, and expects to be treated like one. But she is generous, friendly, and loves to socialize. She would do well in the hospitality industry.
A Capricorn man is stable and likes his security, but he is a hard worker. He will appreciate the business knowledge the Libra woman has, and also the time she takes to look good. He's sensual, but mostly in private, and she likes to get attention from her man. If she accepts it when he's ready to give it, they can basically understand each other. He's a lot more down to Earth, but needs a little of her vitality to liven up his life.
Based on that, it can work. Sometimes we need challenge and Libra and Capricorn are what we call "cardinal signs of change." So you will be forced to make changes in your lives to make it work. But sometimes that is why a soulmate comes into your life! I think it has potential.
Question: I'm a double Virgo with an Aries moon & my boyfriend is an Aries whose rising sign is Virgo. We are like 2 magnets to each other. Even after 2.5 yrs together, we can't get enough of each other. Is it normal when you share some of the same zodiac signs like that?
Answer: You got it! Since you have the Aries Moon, you can read him and understand him well, especially on an emotional level. Virgos are smart and restless, love to be busy and out doing things. Since you have double Virgo and he has the rising sign, you do compliment each other really well. People who share zodiac signs do have a tight bond with each other. I love a good romantic question, I hope you two lovebirds are very happy together!
Question: Will a Virgo man married to an Aquarius cheat with a Pisces woman?
Answer: This is not a question I can answer without casting a whole chart, and even then, I'd have to do all of them. A Virgo Sun and Aquarius Sun are not compatible, although all 10 planets are in a zodiac sign, and you two could have great ones besides what you told me here. Virgo and Pisces are opposite signs, so there is an attraction. But try not to panic. I suspect you think he's cheating, but are you sure? Have you discussed it yet? I think that would be where to start. The Mutable signs are the ones least likely to stay married for life, or for very long, Gemini, Virgo, Sag, or Pisces. They are the restless ones. Try to get it out into the open, and your fears may be unfounded.
Question: How well would an Aries & Taurus get along? What would attract them to each other?
Answer: Usually, Sun signs next to each other get along, because all of your planets are in a zodiac sign. So an Aries probably has at least one planet in Taurus, and the Taurus probably has one or more planets in Aries. But you can't plan a relationship on Sun signs alone, it's a very small part of your astrological story.
Question: How does a Virgo make a Scorpio feel when they are in love?
Answer: I like Water and Earth signs together. I think of it as surf and turf! Scorpios are independent and highly emotional. Virgos are caring and security-minded. Virgos love to take care of people, and who doesn't like to be pampered? I think Scorpio will love that (although they may not admit it)! The Scorpio will push the Virgo to do things and have experiences they never thought they would do or have. But the Virgo will ground the Scorpio and point out the details that Scorpio may not see, as they look at the big picture. I say go for it!

double libra with a sag sun sign but my lover has the sun in cancer, moon in pisces, and aries as rising sign. will we last ?
Jean Bakula (author) from New Jersey on June 21, 2020:
I can't really predict that without a whole chart. Capricorns usually have long life spans, and Cancers are cautious about health. I would say it's good.

Thoughts on the longevity of (F) Cap + (M) Cancer? Our Venus signs are (f) Sag and (m) Cancer?
Jean Bakula (author) from New Jersey on July 29, 2019:
Believe it or not, opposite astrology signs have a lot of the same traits. They also have similar views on the important things in life, although they express that in different ways. Most people end up in a relationship or at least a short fling with their opposite at some time or other. You can't help it, you get pulled in. They can even be the love of your life, but sometimes circumstances get in the way.
Yosy on July 28, 2019:
Perhaps you can give me some insight. Why do astrologists say to pay close attention to your "opposite sign's" reading, in addition to yours? How is an opposite sign's readings helpful?
Jean Bakula (author) from New Jersey on May 22, 2019:
You don't need to know anything about astrology to know if you are compatible with somebody. In fact, when people write and don't know, I have to tell them they probably aren't. Capricorn and Scorpio can do well together, but it's just a Sun and Moon signs. I have to do whole Natal Birth charts, and even then can't promise a couple will be together forever. You have to use common sense.
Sand Dun on May 19, 2019:
How do you think a Capricorn & a Scorpio will do in marriage? Maybe first how/why do you need to know your moon or sun sign? How much does that have to do with anything? Do you think they will make it? What problems should they watch out for?
Jean Bakula (author) from New Jersey on May 16, 2019:
Usually zodiac signs next to each other get along quite well. The Libra probably has Mercury or Venus in Virgo, and vice versa. So they communicate well and can understand each other.

How well would a Libra woman and Virgo man get along ?
Jean Bakula (author) from New Jersey on April 24, 2019:
Guys are weird about dating their friend's sisters. I guess the are afraid it will mess up their bro thing. I think it was wise to decide to be friends. That doesn't mean it will always be that way, or can't get romantic later. Keep in touch with him. If a Scorpio wants to get to know you better, he will be direct about it. Try to move on for now, but keep him in your sights!
Ame on April 20, 2019:
I am a Taurus and my Crush is a Scorpio, weirdly enough this discribed us perfectly. He is very distant lately should I be worried? Since he found out I liked him, we decided on being friends. He is one of my brother's best friends and it would have been awkward. But seriously should I be still trying or should I stop and try getting over him?
Jean Bakula (author) from New Jersey on March 24, 2018:
These two signs are opposites, my friend. Opposites attract. I am a Cancer, and my first love was a Capricorn. We almost all have at least a fling with someone opposite of our own Sunsign. Both are conservative, but Cancer is more affectionate. Capricorn shows it in private. Both are ambitious and plan for the future. If he's staring, he's interested. Capricorn is ruled by Time, and they don't like to waste it. I don't know enough to say it will last, a tarot reading could help. But I say go for it, you'd be a fool not to..

I’m a Cancer.....my crush is a Cap.....he’s super quiet. Stares at me a lot. Ideas?
Jean Bakula (author) from New Jersey on February 17, 2018:
It's true you have to go with someone who accepts you as you are. Both Leo and Scorpio are fixed, or stubborn signs. So you may find that you have to compromise more to get who you want. Generally there is one person who is the reacher and one who is the settler in any relationship. That's not a bad thing. But you do sound a little overbearing. You may meet your match though! Leos are charming and Scorpio Moons are devoted and intense. Good luck.
B on February 17, 2018:
This might be a bit late to comment, however I am a leo sun and scorpio moon. So fairly dominant signs. You had a line that stated this - "But Leo has to learn that a mate will not be submissive to them, maybe they think they are Kings and Queens, but they are the same as everyone else."
I just wanted to throw in here that as someone with a very dominant personality, my partner has to be submissive to a certain extent. Obviously not all women like that, however I do not think a leo trying to suppress this will be able to keep a stable relationship. It is better that they find a partner that likes them how they are.
Jean Bakula (author) from New Jersey on February 04, 2018:
Sometimes we call them "fatal opposites." No matter how much you love each other, not many opposite signs can last for long. Be we remember them as the loves of our lives.
Good luck with your opposite. It's a strong pull, I've been there.
Jacey on February 01, 2018:

Usually signs next to each other get along very well. Your Mercury (how you think) and Venus (your love life) can often be in each other's signs, and that helps things along. I have articles on sun signs in Exemplore.com. Best Regards, Jean

I like a taurus and aquarius but i dont know which one to choose
Jean Bakula (author) from New Jersey on June 14, 2017:
Pisces and Libra are both outgoing, gentle people who love being around other people. Libra is ruled by Venus, and loves to go out and enjoy life. It's also a leadership sign, so they like to get their own way. But Libras love to be in a relationship, they hate to be alone. Bet on it. Pisces is ruled by Neptune, so they are the dreamers. They can be friends with everyone and understand what it's like to walk in their shoes. A Pisces doesn't discriminate and can get along with everyone. Pisces is also the most spiritual, being the last sign of the zodiac. They need time to themselves because they are so interested in others they get very involved with their problems, and can get burned out. I can understand why you keep coming back together. The Pisces love is very true, and the Libra doesn't want to be alone. I hope it works out. If you look on Astrothemes.com and see what your Moon signs are, we can figure out some more. Cafe Astrology also has tables with planets on it that can answer your questions, or you are welcome here. Jean

Jean Bakula (author) from New Jersey on May 25, 2017:
The way you said this makes me think you are in trouble? It's unusual, but actually there are many Cancer/Aquarius couples! CAncer changes 12x a month, as the ruler, the moon, moves through all the zodiac signs. Aquarius people change a lot because Uranus is like a bolt of lightening. But since you both change a lot, this helps you understand each other. I don't know the other planets, but don't worry just about this. It's good. Jean
Jean Bakula (author) from New Jersey on April 06, 2017:
Well, you are both air signs, so this should be easy. You Librans want to be in love and in relationships of all kinds. You are ruled by Venus so can show you feelings more easily. Aquarians care, but aren't the best about expressing them, although other factors in the chart can change that. See Tiffani's answer above yours. Did you try to talk about this with her? This should be able to be worked out. You can do it! Take care, Jean
Armand on April 05, 2017:

Jean Bakula (author) from New Jersey on March 16, 2017:
Well, as a Pisces, you are the more outgoing one. Taurus people are kind, even sweet, but don't talk unless they really have something to say. The two signs are very compatible. You may have to be the one to start the conversation or make the first move. Good luck. Jean

Jean Bakula (author) from New Jersey on March 11, 2017:
I am Cancer and was married to a Taurus for 34 yrs. He passed 3 years ago. Water and Earth are a sort of cozy combo, you have to be careful not to get in a rut. You can do a composite, what sign is in the middle of your two signs, and that's the sign of your relationship. That can give you clues. We were Gemini together, and traveled a lot. I'm so glad we did, since we can no longer do that.

my husband has leo, dominant in his chart, but he's not a leo sun. Still, i get the aquarius/leo dynamic. I notice he does care what others think, and i don't to a degree. It's weird. He needs more attention and i love to give him that attention. I really love it, the warmth and feeling. I also have pisces and virgo (12th and 6th) house and he has Virgo, Scorpio. I also have taurus dominant in my chart. (taurus/Scorpio dynamic there too)

Jean Bakula 11 months ago from New Jersey Author
You make some good points regarding Capricorns and Leos. Often Capricorns have a lot of responsibility thrust upon them, which they never bargained for. Saturn is their ruler, and it's a karmic planet, so they must learn from those lessons thrust on them. Some are oldest children, who always get the bulk of family responsibility as years go on. They are stoic, and their life circumstances often force them to be, in order to handle all they must. But their inhibitions can be let down, by the right people, and they chill out as they get older for some reason.
Now, a Leo always is an optimistic soul, being ruled by Jupiter. Leos are always lucky in life and don't usually have as much responsibility as Capricorns. If they do, they can charm someone else into doing the work for them. Capricorns also are looking at the big picture, and Leos are more in the moment kind of people. Leos are very generous. Both have good traits.
You would be attracted to both signs. Opposites always attract, but it can be the first love you aren't mature enough for yet, or other circumstances can pull you apart. You want the same things, but differ on how to get them. We always get along with the signs next to us, and I know many married couples who are with the zodiac sign next to them. A Leo Sun can have Mercury (how you think) and Venus (love and social life) in Cancer, so that would be why you would understand that person. Best wishes.

I am a cancer guy and secretively like capricorns grounded approach towards life and a unique wisdom to resolve toughest of the issues,with a never giving up attitude.
the main prob with capris is their stoic and inhibited personalities and their lacking of compassion and empathay even towards their dear ones.
Also they have only one dull n hard way to life course.
On the contrary,Leos themselves are pretty much hard-workers ...
but a leo matured in his personality is almost everything.he will cheer you up and show you the possitive side of the life with his typical intelligence.he is generous and upbeat almost all of the time.
He is a real humanitarian even to an aquarian.
Nevertheless,every sign has its uniqueness which itself speaks the reason of its existence.

Thanks for writing in! I have experience with this combo, my first love was a Capricorn. I think we were both just too young. At the time I felt we were too much different from each other, but with the passing time I realized the issue was that we were really too much alike! He left me a lot of times (he was 3 yrs. older than me) but I left the last time.
It is a good combo though, especially since you are a bit older. I don't think it's odd you use Astrology at all. I can remember everyone's signs, even if I can't recall their names! Capricorns are reserved, even with those they love a lot. Actually they loosen up more when they get older, sort of reversed from other people. We Cancers do get our feelings hurt easily, so I know how that is. If you went from being friends to lovers, I would think he was caring a lot more than he showed you at first. Capricorns are afraid of rejection, they don't take it well. Plus you are the more outgoing of the two, and he may be jealous if you pay more attention (or what he perceives as more attention) to other friends.
You both care about the future and are planners. You both care about family, even if you don't have kids, you will have friends, relatives and pets you consider family. Opposites often feel the same about a topic or issue, they just approach it from a different way, but want the same outcome. I cant' promise you forever, that's a tall order. But I can promise a very meaningful relationship. If you want we can do a tarot reading, I have all the info on my blog, Spiritualitypathways.com.
Oh, and you are both worriers! Take care.

I absolutely love your hub! I am an astrology nut, I check my stats all the time, and (even though it may sound silly) I base almost all of my relationships (business, friendships, romances, and everything in between) on the basic standards of astrology.
I really appreciated your opposite’s explanations. More so because I have just recently entered a relationship with a Capricorn and I am a cancer. We are older, but I still worry about our future (which appears to be pretty standard for a cancer).
We had been great friends for years and he surprised me one day. Now, I feel madly in love with him; I love how kind he is, how compassionate, how patient, how affectionate he is, I love how he was raised, I love his dedication, but there feel like something is off. Like, he has a wall up, or maybe he is just a little bit reserved, or maybe I am being too sensitive.
Most sites repeat that whatever/most sign(s) are always going to bother cancer and that Cancer will be the 1st to have their foot out the door. From your professional astrological opinion, would you think Capricorns and Cancers have a forever future?

I couldn't have explained the Virgo/Pisces match better myself. A Virgo craves so many details, but just wants to get everything right. Sometimes the details can seem trivial to the rest of us, and they can be critical. But communication is the key in any relationship, and you both seem to have it in spades. I feel good about this match, and wish you all the best!
Coulibaly on October 05, 2015:
I'm a Pisces and my girlfriend is a Virgo. We get a long very well but @ times don't see eye to eye. But we're very loyal ppl and love hard. Not only that,our chemistry is inseparable. I can say I do learn a lot from her which she probably doesn't know. This relationship grew me and I'm sure it grew her as well. We're well balanced but the only thing is compromising. With my communication skills, we're able to dig in to our problems and resolve them without issues. But the thing is I have to explain each and everything she doesn't understand in very specific details, which can get frustrating sometimes. We know our differences and that's a plus I feel. This relationship is said to be very lasting relationship as long as we learn to deal with our differences.
Jean Bakula (author) from New Jersey on September 01, 2015:
I'm not sure what you mean. Cancer/Capricorn is a great match. I am Cancer and my first love was Capricorn. We were young and didn't end up staying together, but 40 years later I still think of him and wonder how his life was (I moved and never saw him again). Both signs are serious, and a little on the touchy side. But they are very emotional and supportive, and often have similar views on important matters. They both want security and aren't looking for someone superficial. Write back if you have any other concerns
This is also two parts. Maybe you didn't read the one with the Cancer/Capricorn dynamic?

hi, Jean, i was here before years ago, as "jan" for january (the month i'm born in) as i commented on your page before. That was my early, very early years of learning. I didnt realize then that there were also different types of chart styles. So some of the charts gave me different moons and different houses. so i had to stick to one. I usually stick to astrotheme though. It's been fun learning on and off, and also doing the charts of my relatives, family and friends. I remember you, so came back here to see any new updates. :D I really enjoy your blogs.
Jean Bakula (author) from New Jersey on July 11, 2015:

I love to figure out what makes people tick.
Lisa on July 11, 2015:
the comment about house signs make alot of sense, for example, 7th house suns marry libra suns, ect. Celebrities like Nicole Kidman (8th house sun, 2nd house moon) married a 3rd house sun Scorpio Keith Urban. His 3rd house gets her Gemini sun, which is in 8th.
This article is really great by the way. The deeper i get into astrology, alot of stuff makes sense and it's all about synastry.

Nice to see you Sylvia, and thanks for your kind words. I write here a little again now, but mostly am building a clientele who orders astrology charts and tarot readings from the blog. I still write on it, but the click the ad model doesn't work well, I never made money on the blog itself. Still, it gets people to me, and I am finally seeing some customers.
I loved your analysis of 50 Shades of Grey, it was so accurate. And I saw it like you did too, as a successful rescue, or a love story, since neither of them ever fell in love before. I didn't really need to know so much about dominants and submissives. Are you going to see the movie? Or are they making more than one? There probably isn't enough material without all the sex scenes, which got boring after a while.

Jean Bakula (author) from New Jersey on September 16, 2014:
Thank you. At some point most people end up having a relationship with someone in their opposite sign. Opposites want the same things out of life, and have similar views, but they approach things in a different way. If they can get over that, they will be fine, but some don't. If it's a serious love relationship, and doesn't work, it will always feel sort of like "the one who got away." But you have to remember at the time you both needed to get away!

Jean Bakula (author) from New Jersey on April 24, 2013:
You are welcome. I was thinking of you, perhaps the Famous people of the Sunsigns would give you a faster look at main traits and you could see if the person had any in common. If you know the season of the year, we can narrow it down to 3-4 Sunsigns. If I can help in any other way, please feel free to ask.
Joseph Beridze (changed too, against my will in 1947) from Los Angeles on April 24, 2013:
Jean Bakula (author) from New Jersey on April 24, 2013:
You could use a person's traits to try to find out their astrology sign, sort of backtrack into it. It would be a bit hard though, if you aren't familiar with the traits. Is there someone you can ask about the person's B-day? I'm assuming you don't want to ask. Otherwise, if you go on my blog, http://www.Spiritualitypathways.com, I have a longer piece than the ones on HP about each Sunsign. I also have a Famous People of the signs series that begins on HP with 5 people and ends on my blog with 5 more. If you read a few of those, you may get a better feel for the characteristics of the person and be able to guess the sign. Let me know if you need more help or get stuck. Best Wishes.

A very interesting hub! and it makes a lot of sense
Jean Bakula (author) from New Jersey on April 16, 2013:
That's so cute! From my experience, these opposite relationships can go either way. I'm Cancer, and my first love was a Capricorn. We would get along beautifully for a few days, and end up fighting and breaking up. I didn't know Astrology much then, so there must have been other influences causing the fights, Capricorn and Cancer aren't argumentive (at least not openly). When I was at the point where I realized it was never going to work, I met my Taurus hubby, and he was always so steady and calm. What a relief! But I still see a lot of opposites. My son has two friends (Sag woman, Gemini man), both divorced and currently single. I have a bet going with him that they will at least go out a few times, since I know them and can already see they are attracted to each other. He says no way. We'll see!

Thanks, Jean, for this article. My parents are an Aries-Libra couple. She's the emotional one and he's the one who takes charge and tells her to think about the long view and then brings her a bowl of ice cream.
Jean Bakula (author) from New Jersey on March 18, 2013:
The way I wrote this it goes by whether your Sunsigns are opposite, so with Gemini and Aquarius, you are not. But you are both air signs, drawn to each other for intellect, so that's why you don't hold grudges long. It's interesting you both have Cancer moons, that's your deepest inner feelings, and it is the most sensitive sign. So both of you have feelings that get hurt easily, and the Sunsigns help that. Scorpio Ascendants make you appear serious and intense, both my husband and I have them. I think you will be fine!
It is a great relationship as long as there are other planetary positions to help balance it out a bit more. Opposites see traits they wish they had in the other person, so if they are together, it's a good thing. It's just intense, and at times can't work out because of other planets. Even then many will recall the person as the "love of their life." Thanks for writing in.

Fascinating stuff; I think opposites make a great couple usually when they are able to balance each other out, they complement each other. Never thought about it in terms of astrology. Nice work, voted up.
Mae Williams from USA on March 18, 2013:
I am a gemini, scorpio rise with cancer moon and my husband is an aquarian, sag moon with cancer moon....we are the opposite in many things. When we argue it is very intense, but when we play it is like kids.
We can argue very intensely, the tension in the room can bo so thick and then an hour later, you would would never know...Most who know us can't believe the intensity. I think its my scorpio and cancer moons that make it that way. But are we opposite attraction?

Thanks for this look at the opposite-sign astrology relationships. As a long studying astrologer, I agree that opposite signs are attracted to each other but it takes a lot of something special to make these relationships really work. Astrology is also a great tool for timing activities (which I wrote a hub about). Thanks for your work!

Wow, those Taurus women are really attracted to your aura field! My Taurus husband gets the same from Cancer people, he is surrounded by them (I'm Cancer too)! The tarot reading is old, so it will reflect what was going on in your life then. Horoscopes show your natural inclinations to be however you are, and tell you your potentials, and possible pitfalls.
A tarot reading is more detailed and accurate. The Fool doesn't mean you are foolish, it means at the time you were open to new things more than usual. The Hanged Man makes you feel like nothing much is happening, but you are growing spiritually. The High Priestess is a virginal or cool woman, who has good intuition but keeps to herself (maybe your Taurus ladies who don't want to commit). The Wheel of Fortune means life would have picked up again, but The Devil gave you some doubt, negativity, or some bad behaviors for a while. The Emperor is organized and a leader, a Father figure, or yourself putting things back together. The Empress is a Mother figure, but is also sensuous and loves nature, like a Taurus. The Star is about hope and light, and I usually read it as a good health card. The Knight of Swords is always off to be an advocate for something, and horses they ride on mean change. The 5 of Swords is about a difference or several differences of opinions. The King of Pentacles could be you, it's usually a person who is fianancially secure and knows where they are going in life. So does that sound like your life at that time?
I guess just go slow with another Taurus. They are also a bit passive, so she may like it that you a bit older and will likely take charge in certain areas. As far as the Taurus that left you, honestly, they are sort of lazy, so unless you think she's the love of your life and go all out to get her back, it's probably not worth the trouble. It's hard to get a Taurus to do anything, though she may have many planets in other signs, and that would negate much of what I've said about her. That's the pitfall of giving these mini-readings. I'm trying to get people to the blog, because I only have half the story when I read this way. Good Luck to you! Go slow.

I haven't tried sending her flowers or anything 'cause I didn't bother to ask her current address anymore. I just wanted to make her feel that I didn't like her actions. If I can't wreck her fortress of pride, I will just have to return the favor. My feelings is just not something rubbish 'cause when I'm in love, I'm really in love.
If this is what she wants, then this is what she gets. If she wants time to think then, I'll give her all the time in the universe to do so. For now, I just want to live life.
In my relationship history, I already had 2 Taurus women. The first lasted for 8 months and this second one lasted for more than 2 years. I have not mentioned to you that I am also working as a part-time model here in our place. We had a new female model just like me that struck my attention when I first saw her 3 days ago during our rehearsal. And guess what, Ms. Jean. I just found out from my other male model friend that she's also a Taurus woman. Wew! I think I am really attracted to any Taurian women whenever I'm free. :D But I haven't tried to initiate a contact with her. I just want to know her first better before I make my move. :D Besides, I'm confused if I would try to court her at some point because she's too young. She's just 18.
I have seen in the link that you've posted in your reply that you also read tarot cards. I once tried this card reading stuff and as far as I can remember I picked up The Fool. The Hanged Man. The Wheel of Fortune. The Devil. The Emperor. The Empress. The Star. The High Priestess. The Knight of Swords. The Five of Swords. I can't remember the rest. I think I also picked The King of Pentacles. That was the first time I tried this thing and these were the cards that I've picked out.
Anyway, you're right about that Taurians prefer to keep silent about the emotional stuff which I can't take that easily since I wanted to know what they really feel and they just tend to ignore it. I really hate it when they hide something.
Jean Bakula (author) from New Jersey on February 15, 2013:
I'm sorry to hear of your troubles with a Taurus. That's the problem with these opposite sign relationships. We feel a very strong pull towards each other, but we have trouble understanding each other. Bob Dylan said it best in Tangled Up in Blue: "We always did feel the same we just started from a different point of view." I can understand you would at least like to speak to her and clear the air if that's the best it can be. I'm married to a Taurus, and they don't talk much anyway, especially about emotional things. They are ruled by Venus, and avoid talking about any unpleasant things if they can. It's not really a healthy thing. They are romantic though because of the Venus ruler. Have you tried flowers and a note to try to get her talking again? I understand how stubborn they can be, my husband is like a mule when he doesn't want to do something. But it's hard to let a relationship go when it's so good except for a few things. Opposites always go this way. Sometimes they can work it out. I met mine when I was young, he was my first love. After about 5 years of breaking up and making up, I just couldn't take the drama anymore. So a nice, safe Taurus worked for me. I wish you all the best, and I have a Venus in the signs series on http://www.Spiritualitypathways.com if you are interested. Good luck, and keep me posted.
Joel Gonzaga Jr. from Bacolod City, Philippines on February 15, 2013:
Hi, Jean. Nice hub you got there. I am a Scorpio man and I was with a Taurus woman before. We ended our long term relationship about a year ago. We had a little misunderstanding before she left the country and work abroad. I still love her. I just can't get through to her now ''cause she keeps ignoring my messages and refusing my calls. I wanted to know why but I am just getting a dead air response from her and it's getting through my nerves already. You're right that bulls are really stubborn and fixed just like me and I that's creating a big problem in my goal to have a reconciliation. Her actions are very appalling already and if this continues, I have to let my feelings go. 'Cause I can't stand being ignored for life.
Well anyway, all in all I had a very very good kind of relationship with a Taurus woman. It's just that we had crossed the limits of our patience or something like that. If she wants to be with me again, I would still accept her. That is if I have not gone too cold for thrusting me aside.
Jean Bakula (author) from New Jersey on February 12, 2013:
I'm always happy to help!
Nakia Deon on February 12, 2013:
Awesome! Thanks Jean...you are a priceless resource.
Jean Bakula (author) from New Jersey on February 12, 2013:
Well, if his Mercury is in Libra too, it's really hard for him to make up his mind. Being Aries, you do things fast, both in your mind and actions. A Libra person will take things slowly, but like to keep the peace as much as possible. So don't let it ride too long if you can't pin him down. These opposite relationships are usually ones where you make up and break up pretty much, but many other factors come into play, and you may be just fine. I hope it all goes well. All your other planets and moon are in different signs and houses. Try a Moonsign hub, I have links on them so all you need to do is plug in your birthdays.
Nakia Deon on February 10, 2013:
As an Aries who is falling for a Libra, I really enjoyed this post.
I do feel like I am getting a lot of mixed signals from him though and wonder if this is all a part of the Libra man's natural way of operating?
Jean Bakula (author) from New Jersey on September 11, 2012:
Hi Meg Rose W,
I'm a Cancer. I am happy you found me too! If it's a question I can answer with info you know, ask away. I have links so you can figure out your Moonsign and Ascendant on any of the Moonsign hubs, and an ascendant or rising sign link on that hub. Thanks for visiting!
Meg Rose W on September 11, 2012:
fate made me stumble this lovely website , love thisssss readddddd !!!!!! once i figure this out i will have muchos questions, may i ask your sign?
Jean Bakula (author) from New Jersey on April 19, 2012:
Yes, you know alot about astrology. all of the signs you mention are the mutable and changeable signs, so they have that in common. Plus Mercury rules the mind, but people forget Jupiter is higher mind, the studies of philosophies, religion, or just thinking for a group and putting your own self in the background. Even though the signs are square to each other, that can cause an attraction. I have more Astrology on my blog, http://spiritualitypathways.com.
jan on April 19, 2012:
oh this is most interesting!I noticed that mercury and jupiters really like each other. i mean they will even defend/protect each other too. it's that affinity of just...i can't describe it: it's like they find love/respect for each other. many jupiterian ruled are with mercurian ruled persons. It could be pisces/virgo, virgo/sag, sag/gemini (brad pitt angelina jolie), pisces/gemini, ect.
i included pisces because loads of people forget that pisces is also jupiter ruled. which is why pisces is always so darn lucky!!! All the piscean friends/family members i know are all so lucky in many ways. and people forget astrologically they are jupiterian ruled. while for example, scorpio is pluto and mars ruled, no one forgets they are also mars ruled with aries, pisces has jupiter to give it tons of luck!
loads of virgos and geminis are attracted to both pisceans and sagittarians and vice versa.
Jean Bakula (author) from New Jersey on April 16, 2012:
Thank you for sharing what has been the story of a very difficult life. I have a brother, who although was not abandoned, seems to prefer to live like he was. His story about living a destructive life and surrounding himself with the wrong people is so like yours, I have tears in my eyes as I write this. I am so happy to learn that you have matured, are getting counseled, and are facing the issues. That is the hardest thing for any person to do, and we all have issues --even people who seem like they have "perfect" lives. I am a big believer in therapy, I have been in myself because I was born with health issues, and it is so helpful to have an objective person with your best interests at heart to advise and guide you. You certainly deserve a good Saturn return, and I hope your life improves. I know it can seem like a battle, but as it's said, one day at a time. Being at the start of a new chapter of your life is such an exciting place to be. Have you tried meditation? That is very calming too. I wish you all the very best. Take care of yourself, and listen to your heart and intuition when you let new people into your new life!

"True believer in the Saturn return"
I was left at birth i was born in Thailand and grew up in an orphanage there until i was five. I was adopted and moved to England where i have been bought up by two English parents. I was speaking fluent Thai so my early years were pretty tough in an English school I was of a different colour and stood out.
I grew up being bullied, I felt alone most of my life was constantly pushed away by people and never fitted it. Through my own feelings of being abandoned from birth and being made to feel insecure I've grown up to be very confused about my own identity.
Most of my life I tried to always fit in where I can and that's never had a positive outcome. I ran away for 6yrs to try and find myself this didn't work I made my life hell. But through this time gained valuable life experiences which brings me into the job I am working towards today.
I have lived through my young years aged 15- 26 years partying, all my life making ive been making mistakes, did stupid things to get attention, I've always wanted to feel loved and wanted in friendships and feeling misunderstood constantly. I have never really hurt anyone but myself through it all.
I really was lost inside as a person feeling of loneliness, emptyness and what seems a lifetime of guilt, ive also tortured myself most days.
what I'm trying to get at is I surrounded myself around people "so called friends" they watch me fall but never was really there for me.
It's taken a lot of things to happen to make me reach this point in my life I am 27 now and all the traumatic events ive been through from birth til now all the hurtful times of feeling abandoned, lonely and unwanted and upsetting feelings i ever had to live with on a daily basis for a very long time just lately have floated away. "Things happen for a reason?" true believer in that too.
The friends i say about are no longer in my life.
I have faced up and hit head issues that i shouldve done a long time ago.
i think life does definitely take a strong hold of you in a way to make good use of yourself 'maturity' is kind of forced onto you i believe. Things have occurred in my life mostly negative but now i feel 100 times positive. I'm having counciling and that's really helped me to move on, she actually told me about this Saturn return and I can actually say I am a true believer.
I've never once in my life before felt so calm, at peace with my inner self and at peace altogether, i am happy and feel relief/relieved and the feeling of moving on into a whole new positive chapter in my life is exciting and opening up a chapter I thought I'd never see.. Hope this I said makes sense?? Thank you for reading
Jean Bakula (author) from New Jersey on December 04, 2011:
I just noticed your post. Wherever your sun is, you shine, so even if you feel you can be independent, you are a bright spot and probably the stronger one in a relationship, or a partnership of any kind. I don't have all the astrological positions you've shared with me, but it's not strange. You probably have planets in signs and houses that help your independent streak. You really are picking this up well.
ayu on December 01, 2011:
Just read this article today and just want to tell you love the stuff that you are sharing with us :)
I have my sun in 7th house, I'm Taurus. I rarely feel like I need a relationship or company as I can totally do anything myself, even travelling alone?
Isn't that strange?
Jean Bakula (author) from New Jersey on September 13, 2011:
I am happy you took the time to read my hub, and glad you found some of the info true! I have studied for a very long time.Best Wishes.
JasonStroth from Los Angeles, California on September 01, 2011:
Very subtle! I am always intrigue with astrology... These infos are really true. I know.. I'm an aries..
Voyance on July 21, 2011:
nice post. I'm checking out my horoscope :)
justom from 41042 on June 11, 2011:
Stubborn is something I grew out of a long time ago (well for the most part). That's funny about your son, Justin had long hair during those years too but has kept it buzzed for a long time now while I, on the other hand, am sporting a ponytail which I think will soon meet it's demise. Have a great one! Peace!! Tom
Jean Bakula (author) from New Jersey on June 11, 2011:
Two Scorpios, huh? That's tough. My son is Scorpio, and my M-in-law was. They will give you the shirt off their back, volunteer until they drop. But they are Stubborn and it has to be their way. They don't fight, they just sit there like mules. My son decided to grow his hair long in 3rd grade (he's 23 and now ties it back for work) and became a vegetarian at around the same time. Thankfully my husband likes to cook, we're so sick of making 2 meals every night. Sometimes we can all agree if it's pasta, grilled cheese, or the like. But 2 Scorpios is hard. You'll respect each other though. And understand each other too! All the best, & always Peace. Jean
justom from 41042 on June 11, 2011:
OK Jean, now I understand why my relationships never lasted :-P Both Justin and I are Scorpio's so that explains a lot. Interesting stuff, as always! Peace!! Tom
Jean Bakula on June 09, 2011:
Well, that sort of makes sense, as both Taurus and Libra are ruled by Venus, you are gentle people that feel the same way about many things. The 3rd house rules communications, usually ones with family, friends, neighborhood, people you see every day or are important in your life. So a Taurus with a Sun in the 3rd is a much more talkative and outgoing Taurus. You are right, the 7th house rules marriage (and war by the way) or partnerships, so with your Sun there you do want to be part of a couple. My brother is Libra, and always did things with partners, even projects. They don't like to do things alone. You would maybe do better with a water sign or earth sign like yourself, but I don't have your whole horoscope, so that's all I can tell. Best Wishes to you, thanks for reading!J
deblipp on June 09, 2011:
I'm a Taurus and I married 2 Libras. My Sun is in my 7th House, so that explains it. I wonder if others have this House connection in their attractions; if a Taurs with Sun in the 3rd House would be attracted to Geminis, etc.
Jean Bakula (author) from New Jersey on May 12, 2011:
Hi Micky, I think you are a terrific guy. I keep hearing Joan Baez after reading your hub yesterday. Hang in there.
Hi Deborah, I never went on Facebook, does it help traffic here on HP, I have troulbe attracting. But when I went on StumbleUpon or some sites older hubbers mention, their rules changed too, and they dont just let you post your URL's on there. My best friend was a Sag married to a Gemini, so I have some insight on that pair! Your mental connection is strong, you just have to not hurt his feelings. Take care!
Deborah Reno from First Wyoming, then THE WORLD on May 12, 2011:
If this hub had a "love" button, I would love it. I mean, as in facebook. This was very helpful to me, a gemini, married recently to a sag. It has been an experience, I must say. Thanks for the clarity.
Micky Dee on May 12, 2011:
Oh Jean- I couldn't attract a magnet is I were steel. Great advice dear Jean. You've put a lot of work into this. God bless you.
