Hey,

I have been single for a very, very long time and I do went to get out there to start dating and settle down. I am curious though, does astrological signs matter in terms of compatibility? Yes I know I know, the stars in the sky doesn't determine whether or not your relationships are going to work. But I'm just sayin. Do you take astrological signs into consideration?

Thanks for your thoughts.

No I don't.  Maybe there is something to astrology but I'd think that a person would really have to study it in depth--otherwise, do you really believe that everyone born in a certain month would be compatible with you?

I don't take horoscopes seriously, but they can be fun to read. I think that the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator is a far more accurate gauge of personality. It's based on the persobality studies of Carl Jung.

yes, I think signs do matter but I wouldn't reject someone on that basis so I guess it doesn't matter taht much. You have to try harder to get along if you're not the compatible signs.

It's not just your sun sign but your moon sign (governing your emotional disposition), for example, I'm a fire sign but has earth in my moon sign so emotionally I'm more like an earth person while my temperment is more fiery. My earth emotion prefers stability and  material comfort in the the r/s while my fire sun sign makes me more expresive and liking to talk and communicate my deepest thought on a regular basis.

So knowing the basis of the sign helps you udnerstand how to deal with each other better but not neccessarily determine the success. For some reasons, my closest gf's are either fire or earth sign. I think astrology plays a role.

Yes, I also am a believer in astrology. Like White Satin, I have my Sun in a Fire sign(Aries) and my Moon in an Earth sign(Virgo). Astrology is a lot more than Sun signs. Besides Moon signs, each planet was in a sign at the time of a person's birth, Each planet represents and controls elements of a person and life---Mercury--thought and communication, Venus--love and beauty, etc. Also, interactions between the planets matter.

Additionally, for a man, his Moon and Venus show what he likes/wants in a woman. With my Virgo Moon and strong Saturn, I have done best with Capricorn women, the closest sign to Virgo and ruled by Saturn. . In fact, the three women I have been the most serious with have their birthdays within 4 days of each other---January 3, January 4, and January 7. My wife also has her Moon in Virgo, only 2 degrees away from mine.

So, yes, IMO, use astrology, but don''t just rely on Sun signs!!!
