Judging persons by their zodiac signs is conductive to wrong assumptions about their personalities if some word of caution is not taken care of. Zodiac signs sometimes can indeed reflect the overall personality of an individual but at other times it's easy to misjudge if you do not consider the limitations of the zodiac sign general characteristics. In the following lines you can take a look at the zodiac compatibility information to get a more accurate idea of who is who from the point of view of relationship compatibility.
There are some general types of personalities that usually fit with their zodiac signs.
Usually the zodiac signs we are most compatible with are the ones of the same element. If yours is an air zodiac sign (Aquarius, Gemini or Libra), you'll tend to relate better with other of them. More passionate and long lasting relationships are more likely to be achieved with fire ones (Aries, Leo, Sagittarius).
The fire zodiac signs tend to be compatible with other fire and complemented air ones. Air zodiac signs show compatibility with other air types that are complemented with fire.
Earth zodiac signs show compatibility with other earth ones and those that are complemented with water.
A water zodiac sign show compatibility with other water signs and complemented earth ones.
The air and fire zodiac symbol group can be Aries, Aquarius, Gemini, Leo, Libra and Sagittarius.
The zodiac water and earth group can be Cancer, Capricorn, Pisces, Scorpio, Taurus, Virgo.
In general, persons of the same zodiac symbol tend to get along well.
In making your judgments you have to consider that compatibility is determined by the same character described for each zodiac symbol. If you do not find that the character of the person in question fits his/her zodiac symbol description, you had better associate the character traits of the person that fit with other symbol character wise or maybe completely disregard astrology as a tool.
Some typical character traits are associated with the sun. By example:
Go-getters have character traits that move their emotions and ability to make things happen in their lives and take on challenges with a strong drive to solve them. They tend to be worried and to be disappointed or hurt more easily because their expectations are high. The character trait or traits of a go-getter is said to belong to Aries, Libra, Cancer, and Capricorn.
People that take a slower pace in life and love, know what they think, tend to resist change and like things the way they are, make things happen the way they want, have their character make up associated to Taurus, Scorpio, Leo, and Aquarius.
People with character traits that make them quick to change their minds and to run for new directions, adaptable and open to new experiences, easygoing and able to respond to the ups and downs in a way that favors themselves fairly, fall within the general character traits attributed to the mutable Gemini, Sagittarius, Virgo, and Pisces.
Remember, we're only talking about general trends. Astrology should never command our thinking or expectations, it should just enhance our ability to understand others and to estimate the likelihood of better relationships.
