Zodiac Matches

’We are born at a given moment, in a given place, and like vintage years of wine, we have the qualities of the year and of the season in which we are born.
~ Carl Gustav Jung

In the 5000 years that have passed since the study of astrology was first recorded, the twelve signs of the zodiac have taken on special associations and meanings.

To understand zodiac sign love matches, it’s essential to gain insight into the qualities that make up each sign. Some zodiac matches are more challenging than others, but the key to make these couplings work is to accept and embrace your respective differences – as annoying, absurd or mystifying as they may seem. The process of acceptance is one of the greatest gifts in creating harmony in love as we seek to better understand those around us.

Elements of Romance

Each zodiac sign belongs to one of the four element groups and each element represents different needs and desires. The four elements are the basis of all matter and form the building blocks of the natural world. Like a seed that requires heat (fire), water, oxygen (air) and soil (earth) to thrive, the Zodiac is built on an equal mix of these essential compounds.

Understanding the elements gives you an insight into how each sign operates. They highlight motivation or the reasons you do something.

’The magic of astrology can help you understand why some relationships seem to work with little effort, while others just don’t gel as easily as others. The answer is in the stars.’

In unique proportion, each individual has all four elements present in their astro-energy mix:

Fire: Fire symbolises action, energy and passion. The Fire signs (Aries, Leo and Sagittarius) are natural leaders who like movement, activity and excitement.

Earth: Earth signs (Taurus, Virgo and Capricorn) are practical, grounded and reliable. They have a secret sensual side, but are perceived to be reserved and quiet by others.

Air: Air signs (Gemini, Libra and Aquarius) reflect the social and mental realms and are turned on by talking, thinking, discussing and learning in all forms.

Water: Water signs (Cancer, Scorpio and Pisces) are sensitive and emotional. They are the most romantic of al the signs and enjoy being showered with love. Water signs can be moody.

Yin and Yang

Fire and Air signs are yang, masculine and extroverted, usually with higher energy levels. Yang signs are viewed as more direct and strong through action than yin signs.

Earth and water signs are yin, feminine and introverted, with more of a private style. Yin signs are seen to be receptive and magnetic, and strong through inner reserves.

Zodiac Compatibility

Remember that your zodiac compatibility is not just based on your star sign, but also your Moon, Venus and Mars signs. While nobody has all the answers to the mysteries of love, astrology can offer a fresh perspective to help you better understand yourself and potential partners, making the game of love easier to play.

The following element combinations are usually more challenging because of inherent differences based on their signs:

• Fire (yang) / Water (yin)
• Air (yang) / Water (yin)
• Fire (yang) / Earth (yin)
• Air (yang) / Earth (yin)
