Finally I’m sitting down to write a little.
Life on the road is becoming a series of catching up; with laundry, with different people, with myself (Im still rarely spending time on my own company), with my diet, my yoga practice…
I am really looking forward to have a room for myself but I know that it won’t happen for another month or perhaps 2 months (I’m going to check another place that I would only be able to move in on 1st of October).
But that doesn’t bother me.
Life has its seasons and I’ve been learning how to respect and flow with it rather than fight it.
Anyways, enough of catching up with myself here.
What I really was thinking about is writing a few posts on common questions that people ask you when they find out that you’re an astrologer.
Astrology still so much misunderstood.
So, one of the questions people always ask me (together with the usual is that good or bad?!) is: “which star sign would be my perfect match?”
I think this is such a funny question. And naive at the same time.
When I think about compatibility I think about commonality.
Traditionally if your sun is in Aquarius you wouldn’t be a match made in heaven with someone that has a cancerian sun, but what if your Moon is in Cancer?! And even better, the other person’s Moon is also in Aquarius?
Synastry has always been one of my favorite topics in astrology and because of that I’ve been experimenting with it a lot in my life. I was always paying attention to how I feel around a certain person and then checking the symbolic reflection of it.
Then, as I was becoming more acquainted with the astrological language, I started comparing how the same interaspect would feel with two different people. I once dated a guy for couple of months that had a very tight conjunction from his Saturn to my natal Sun, an interaspect that I also had with my father.
So fascinating to see those energies playing out in “real life”!
I went to Bristol for another week and spent more time with the man I’ve met at the festival. Things are unfolding pretty well between us and I can’t ignore the strong amount of commonalities between our charts.
I have a strong angular square involving Virgo and Sagittarius and in a different way (involving slightly different houses and planets) so does he.
We share something; a similar conflict is playing out in our psyches.
The need to be free to explore and be spontaneous (Sagittarius) versus the analytical and grounded tendencies that need to be put into service (Virgo). The switch back and forth from the bigger picture to the smallest details in a situation.
And because we are both made of these energies we sort of understand each other’s two sides.
I think that this is what I mean by commonalities.
When people share similar energies, like for example someone with a strong Capricornian nature can relate well with someone that has a stellium in the 10th house, there is a natural understanding.
Not to forget that our level of awareness has a major impact on how much you get on with someone else or not.
And this part still pretty much a mystery, in my opinion, impossible to be measured with astrology.
Reblogged this on Lost Dudeist Astrology.
Good grounded stuff, Fernanda – and you are so right about the level of awareness – and maturity! – determining compatibility. And where would we be if an element of mystery was absent from how we live our lives? So much of our creativity flows from that.
