Even if you have no prior experience with astrology, chances are at some point you have heard people make reference to two people’s astrological signs being compatible or incompatible. Some people find astrological sign compatibility to be purely amusing, while others take it very seriously and would never consider a romantic relationship with a person if their signs were not agreeable.
This is a topic that I have been asked my opinion on many times, and one that I actually have strong feelings about. I myself use astrology routinely to determine when the timing is favorable for performing certain tasks. And yes, occasionally I have consulted the charts to determine relationship compatibility for myself and others. But do I feel that you should not enter into a romantic relationship with another individual just because the stars say it is not ideal?
Often times, people view astrology as the end all, be all in their choices. They feel as though because the stars say it is so, than it must be so. But as a true witch should understand, things are not always black and white. There are absolutely shades of gray that need to be considered as well. Each individual has the opportunity to make their own choice, regardless of whether the stars say otherwise.
For instance, have you ever taken the time to read a personality profile for your astrological sign. Many times, there is a good portion of that profile that is spot-on and defines you to a “T.” But usually, there is some information in there that when you read it, makes you say “Oh I’m not like that,” or “That’s not me.” Every single person has their own unique traits. Each of us is an individual. While I wholeheartedly believe that there is an enormous amount of truth and accuracy to astrological personality traits, our free will defines who we are, and affects the final outcome of our life.
So it is with our relationships. I myself am a prime example of how astrology can be incorrect in determining relationship compatibility not only in romantic relationships, but in friend and familial relationships as well. All of the people that are closest to me are born under signs that astrology deems to be incompatible with my own. Had I consulted with the charts and said to myself “Oh, I won’t be compatible with this person,” and avoided the relationship with that in mind, I would have denied myself the joy and pleasure of truly wonderful, loving relationships that have completely changed my life.
I say all of this to you my friends, to stress this one simple point. You are your own person, with your own free will. Nothing in this universe, not even the stars themselves, have complete control over your life. You are the captain at the helm, and it is up to you to make the choices that you feel are best for you.
Astrology is a truly awesome and amazing science to learn. There are many, many benefits to learning even simple astrology and it can be a powerful tool when used properly. But you should never let it control your life, especially when it comes to developing relationships with another person. The stars may say it won’t work, but the heart has other plans in mind. Now remember, I’m not saying there are times the stars aren’t right, but they can be wrong too.
The greatest gift we can ever receive is love. When your heart speaks to you, listen to it, regardless of what anyone tries to tell you.
