Star Sign Compatibility & Star Sign Traits

Star sign compatibility and star sign traits, are the two most popular things people ask me about as an astrologer! Star sign compatibility and  star sign traits are the two things that generally people gravitate to when they think of astrology. ‘Ohhh  he’s an Aries is he my soul mate?’ ‘Ohhh she’s a Scorpio is she passionate in bed? The mind boggles for those not in the know.

With that said, let’s look into star sign compatibility and star sign traits and see who gets on with who, or who may fight like cat and dog. The first thing to say is, astrology is a very deep subject  people and it is more than ‘ she’s an Aquarius and he’s a Libra they are both air signs and therefore their star signs are compatible.’ This is because, in our birth charts we have ‘energies’ ‘elements’ ‘modes’ ‘polarity’  without getting to technical in the astrology language to confuse you bottom line is,  all these things make up our personality. So while two air signs may on the face of it yes, understand each other due to them being the same element if, one person’s chart is very dominated by say the  fire element with their planet placements  mainly here, and one is dominated with say water element with planet placements  here this could cause a stir or even challenge depending on how the two charts interact when relationship synastry is done….one puts the other out so there could be challenges. Astrology is deeeeeeeeep and takes a lot of skill to analyse charts, and likely hood of compatibility deeply and accurately, but for today let’s look generally at star sign compatibility and star sign traits. See if you recognise yourself here.

Before we get into it did you know that  all star signs have crystals or stones associated with them? To help balance out the positive and challenging energies of the sign. Each sign has two sides to it just like ying and yang. Do you know that birthstones are also  different gem  crystals or stones  that are associated with your birth month? Each individual stone can tap into  hidden spiritual empowerment, balance you, and also help you with manifestations as well as understand yourself and life better. Just like actual astrology can.

  1. Hi Kae! Thank you for sharing your knowledge! I can tell you from experience that your understanding of the Taurus is right on!  My only complaint is that you left out how stubborn we are! XD  It’s so fascinating to see the depth that goes beyond just your “four-star day” or “five-star day” newspaper horoscopes. I’m off to get some rose quartz! Also – you should check out the water bottles with crystals in them – I think they’re called lithotherapy bottles! Will you write more about the secondary pieces of astrology, like waxing and waning? I have no idea what all of those mean. Thank you again for taking the time!

    1. Haha, yes that is true I did actually not put in the stubbornness of Taurus.. don’t wanna offend anyone! But it is very true and well known, also being a fixed sign too. Yeah there is a lot of depth to astrology but the thing with newspapers is that you can’t have everyone’s birth chart to hand to make it very specific (I wish we could). I will look at these water bottles and enjoy your rose quartz, thank you for your comment.

  2. Wow… I just learned new things about my zodiac sign (Libra) and too bad, I didn’t find my crush compatible with my sign (which is Virgo) but oh well. I guess that’s why she already had a boyfriend. Or am I just overthinking stuff? Still, I’d love to learn the compatibility guidelines to see how I could use it to direct my life in special ways.

    1. Ahh the beautiful energy of Libra, don’t worry if she has a boyfriend, under the Libra charm maybe she’ll change her mind *raises eyebrows* also, remember that her chart could be very compatible with yours depending on the astrological makeup of the two of you together. I will do more on compatibility and synasty ( relationship astrology) so stick around!

  3. Dear Kae,

    In the part of the world where I live Astrology plays a vital role in people’s lives. 

    For Marriage, business, building a house, buying a land, to name a child, before making some important decision, for all good and all bad things they will reach out to an astrologer. Because of this there are many Astrologers on every street and it became a huge business and to be honest not everyone is genuine.

    Thanks a lot for the helpful and informative post and your post gave me helpful insights. 

    Information on Horoscope Stone’s is an eye-opener. Star sign traits and compatibility you shared is very thorough and comprehensive. I must say I found your post highly uplifting and educational.

    One of my friend is studying Astrology in the university and I am going to share your article with him and I strongly believe he will find great value from your post.

    Your article certainly made me to think more on the subject. Great information, you have really given a lot of value here.

    Much Success!


    1. Hi Paul, thank you for stopping by, yes in many parts of the world more east than west astrology is a way of life! And how key decisions are made agreed totally. Personally, and from experience I can resonate with this. I wish your friend studying astrology good luck and thank you for sharing your views.

  4. Hi Kae, it was neat to see what compatibilities and traits are common to Cancer and Leo. I’m an odd one, a water and a fire sign, ruled by the sun and the moon, my birthday is July 23rd a cusp baby. It would be interesting to find out if you have any thoughts about me. The man I live with is a Scorpio, right on about being secretive and deeply sensitive, but the water sign is a good compatibility with my Cancer side, just like you said. It’s a fun and interesting combination. Cool site.

    1. Hi Elaine, I do enjoy working with you ‘cusp babies’ I get this question often, even when someone is born on the cusp you are only ONE sign. The key is you need to see when the Sun moved from Cancer into Leo the EXACT time, and compare this to your EXACT  time of birth. Wherever the Sun was at your time of birth is your sign. This will tell you if you are a Cancer or a Leo. We  can mix and blend yes…but we are only ever one star sign, and that sign will dominate I’d lean towards this, when born on the cusp. This is why in astrology knowing the exact time of birth is key. Not only does it impact the star ( Sun) sign also the Ascendant sign too, timing gives great accuracy.

  5. Awesome! I like my stone the garnet and I didn’t realize this was my stone so I really learned something here! I like the garnet, it’s red and bold so I’m happy with it. This is really interesting about horoscope stones. I’d like to put one by my bed as well to see if it influences my dreams in any way. I will be clicking my sign in your link to see more of what it’s all about, thank you!

  6. Thank you for sharing your article! I read about zodiacs every day. I’m an Aquarius.  I really enjoy reading about the zodiacs and horoscopes because they are often right and relatable. I found the things you said about my sign true and quite interesting. I really like the fact that my horoscope stone is Hematite! Its description is really amazing.   

  7. I enjoyed reading the signs for my husband and my sons. In essence, a lot of the traits are true, but the descriptions are incredibly broad too. I guess for me, I am not quite up to date on how the stones pertain to the signs and compatibilities, but I can understand how there is so much that goes into our traits, characteristics…life. Thank you for the post. 🙂

  8. I have to say that my what you say about my sign is very accurate. I am a go getter, bad temper (but I let go easily, I do not hold grudges), and I am very aggressive. I have to say that it is my way or the highway lol One day I was walking around in NYC and one lady say something that is similar to you. She just grabbed my arm and say that I need to wear red bracelet to ward off evil but she did not specify that it has to be bloodstone. She also mention that it would be good for me to light the blue candle and the pink candle for money and love every night. I am checking the bloodstone right now. Thanks!

    1. Haha a typical Aries then I take it, that’s all good. Aries is associated with the colour red so yes a red bracelet would make sense. For money and details on candle magic colours, check out the article on how to do candle magic under the rituals category or search in the search bar. Thanks for your feedback and stopping by!

  9. Honestly, I never get bored reading about my star traits. You would think that after many years of aging, certain things are bound to change, but fundamentally, they don’t change that much. The Gemini that I was 10 years ago is pretty much the same Gemini as I am today. 

    The house of life concept is new to me though. I have never heard of such a thing. Even so, a lot of traits that you mentioned in the third house feels very close to my personality. Coincidence or what? 🙂

    1. Hey Cathy… no coincidence lovely, not in astrology it’s all what we call ‘written in the stars’. There is a key transit for Gemini going on right now you should check out the Gemini and Sun in Mercury article too! Thanks for sharing your view.

  10. Hi Kae, wow, astrology is very ddddeeeeeppppp!  I can tell by your writing that you are very passionate about the subject matter and you have covered all the bases in this post.  I remember growing up as a child in the 60’s and 70’s my parents reading their horoscope every morning in the local newspaper.  

    I am a Virgo and I re-read your description of the Virgo several times.  I’ve never paid much attention to my sign but now I’m thinking maybe I should.  “Associated with the lower back”.  Hum, I’ve had problems with my lower back for years.  Not sure if the two are related, but, you never know.  “Very hard working”, “perfectionist”, “focuses on the finer details and good with data or analytical tasks, likes routine and logic”.  That describes me to a tee.  “Prone to nervous feelings or very cautious about things and reserved, an observer rather than forceful.”  I am cautious and for the most part, I do observe and am a good listener.  

    Thanks for the post Kae, in the future I may pay more attention to my horoscope.


  11. HI Kae, thank you so much for your clear blog about the zodiac compatibility. Indeed a frequently asked question, yet I didn’t ask it myself this time around. My boyfriend is Cancer and I’m a Scorpio and we go so well together. After reading your blog it turns out to be the emotional match that is working so well. It was very cool to read that my stone is a Citrine, because I have been naturally drawn to that stone for year, yet it didn’t bring me financial abundance yet. But well, I will just have to keep doing the work… it will come to me I’m sure. My perfect boyfriend did…. so money will too. It is all love, don’t you think. 

    Thanks for making astrology so approachable and you are also very open. Nice to interact with your audience in this way. I’m sure you will help a lot more people with your gorgeous website and super content. Love, Nanda 

  12. Hi Kae,

    Thank you for bringing such an in-depth description of the zodiac signs and birthstones. To answer your question Di you resonate with me? Yes you did actually, and I found your discussion on the power of keeping birthstones close by. I am a cancer and presently single. So I was looking at compatible partners(we all want to know!). I found something curious. You have all the compatible signs listing who they are compatible with, except Scorpio. I am going to guess, because they are a water sign, we may be able to overcome our differences, if I should fall for a scorpio? Thanks for the great article.


    1. Good looking out Chas… I did not include it. I have updated it on the article, yes Scorpio is compatible with all water signs, in addition good energy with the earth signs Taurus, Capricorn and Virgo. I wish you well on you love seeking too.
