Some people may laugh about it while others might head toward the other extreme, but astrological compatibility is a subject most have taken a look at even if many of them are loath to admit it.
Many enjoy reading their daily horoscope but when it comes to more serious matters there are a few who believe in evaluating their astrological charts. The problem with taking the astrological path toward finding out whether you are compatible with someone else is that it’s too prone to generalized information. That, and the fact that it isn’t a science (due to the lack of empirical data to support it), makes it a bit dubious.
To followers and practitioners of divination arts, however, it is a wholly different story. Aside from celestial divination—reading and interpretation of the stars and other heavenly bodies—there is numerology, tea-leaf reading, i-ching, various methods of scrying, and many more. Suffice it to say, that to some, this is serious stuff indeed. The planetary symbols will tell you the person’s character. In this way, you can easily understand your future partner and know the person’s strengths and weaknesses. This can be your guide to avoid clashes and break ups.
Going through all these methods will not necessarily answer your compatibility questions. With the best example, employing an astrological compatibility chart, the most you can hope for is a general picture, a “lay of the land” so to speak.
Take your own astrological chart for example. Generally, it contains information about traits that can be defined as your inner and outer personas. A catalogue of distinguishing characteristics you consciously exhibit as you go along through life and those that are subliminal. Someone taking a look at your astrological profile might gain some insight into your personality and you may do the same upon reading theirs. Will this mean that you or the other party can say whether you are either compatible or not, unlikely.
Astrological compatibility and any other aspect of your life that is well matched with another can only heighten the probability of a smooth and harmonious relationship. What it isn’t, is a sure guarantee of suitability. Other factors beyond the astrological can impact relationships of any kind, and ensuring compatibility is not something that can be easily achieved. Having said that, even a small understanding of another’s character and persona is better than none at all.
