Before we go into compatible astrology signs let's be clear on what it is about.
In Western astrology, astrological signs are the twelve 30º sectors of the ecliptic, starting at the vernal equinox (one of the intersections of the ecliptic with the celestial equator), also known as the First Point of Aries. The order of the astrological signs is Aries, Taurus, Gemini, Cancer, Leo, Virgo, Libra, Scorpio, Sagittarius, Capricorn, Aquarius and Pisces.
The concept of the zodiac originated in Babylonian astrology, and was later influenced by Hellenistic culture. According to astrology, celestial phenomena relate to human activity on the principle of "as above, so below", so that the signs are held to represent characteristic modes of expression, or primary energy patterns indicating specific qualities of experience, through which planets manifest their dimension of experience.
What this article wants to determine is whether compatible astrological signs necessarily make a successful marriage and incompatible signs doom a marriage.
Before writing this article I followed the process of how zodiac compatibility is determined and it works this way. You enter your zodiac sign and that of your intended which you should have already figured out using your birthdays. And then you're told whether or not your zodiac signs are compatible for marriage and why so. You may want to see genetic compatibility.
I've said it before that no marriage compatibility test is reliable especially not a science test. And I'll prove it now with true examples of married people I know. I'll take some married couples birthdays I know that are happy and run a zodiac compatibility test to see what they say about them compared with how they are actually doing.
Know that there are definitely going to be coincidences. For example I was born August 13th, and according to the astrological signs I'm supposedly a Leo. And some character and traits attributed to Leos are similar to my actual character. But then some are not. Another quick proof that any kind of science cannot possibly determine the character and attitudes of a group of people is that, as a test I ran a astrological compatibility test using my birthday and that of a great ex who is supposedly a Capricorn. Do we have compatible astrology signs?
Fire and Earth... Hardly had it begun, when it ended.
The prudent and practical Capricorn, who is often a little snob and always a little conservative, will burden Leo's romantic and enthusiastic personality.
I am romantic and enthusiastic yes. But how far they are from the truth about my ex boyfriend. A conservative person is someone who is averse to change or innovation and holding traditional values. And my ex was one of the most humble, teachable and compromising persons I know. And he didn't burden me at all. On the contrary, we were almost perfect for eachother. And the reason we parted ways had nothing to do with his personality which is why we're still friends till today even though he's now married.
Now let's look at astrological compatibility in marriages because here's what mysticscripts said:
Marriage between two persons of harmoniously compatible zodiac signs is sure to be successful and rewarding. On the other hand, marriage between two people who are of opposite signs or incompatible signs, the marriage will end up in adversity.
I already know that's not true but it's not about me but you. So let me try and convince you further using some actual married couples birthdays comparing their supposedly bride's zodiac sign with that of the groom.
Mr. and Mrs. Ekanem; bride was born April 9 and groom was born January 28. Zodiac sign for April 9 is Pisces and zodiac sign for January 28 is Capricorn. Do they have compatible astrology signs?
Capricorn is a feminine sign, which means (s)he has the capacity to understand Pisces' visions, emotions and intuitions, as well as his/her needs.
Practical and determined, an intellectual sign, Capricorn will be a good life partner for a Pisces.
This couple are happily married but practical and determined? I just know they understand themselves and get along well because we used to live in the same compound.
Mr. and Mrs. Aguozor; bride was born April 28 and groom was born June 19. Zodiac sign for April 28 is Aries and for June 19 is Taurus. Do they have compatible astrology signs?
Aries and Taurus. Fire and Earth. Really difficult...
Have you fallen in love with a Taurus? Do you happen to like stability? Taurus is very different from you: (s)he keeps his/her feet on the ground, (s)he likes safety, risks scare him/her to death, change is an earthquake to him/her. Not to say that Taurus does not have your strong nerves and this could lead to many conflicts!
Taurus is scared to death of risk and change is an earthquake?! Actually the groom is my close friend, and coincidently just a few days before writing this article we chatted on Facebook and I asked him how old is marriage was and he said a year old. I then asked him:
From your experience of being married for a year would you say it's been worth it?
To which he said:
Yes, every bit of it.
And he went further to add:
Marriage comes in very different flavours. There are challenges but, you must decide to get over them.
Does that sound like someone afraid of risks and change?
Finally, Mr. and Mrs. Mosindi. One very happy couple; that I'm sure of. Now with a very handsome baby boy. Though I'm just a distant friend of the groom but let's see what the zodiac sign compatibility has to say about them.
Bride was born August 15 and Groom was born June 5th. The Zodiac sign for August 15th is Leo and for June 5th is Taurus. Do they have compatible astrology signs?
Leo and Taurus. In a few words? Conflicts and conflicts again. That means too many personality conflicts.
Taurus has to have it his/her way all the time. Taurus is as stubborn as a bull.
Now that doesn't sound right, does it? Yet these two are happy and was even willing to model for me for some couples photos I thought I needed for the header of this site.
I hope this has convinced you that nothing especially not some science can predict the compatibiltiy of you and your intended. The best person to actually tell if you're compatible or not is You. So take some time to consider how things have been between you and your intended and use this marriage compatibility tips as a guide.
