ASTROLOGY: SOME QUERIES



Dear readers-

Are there any of you out there who know your way around the ins and outs of astrology? If so, what do you have to say about the compatibility between signs? I'm curious about the Cancer/Sagittarius thing; I've done some research, but I don't believe in the concrete rules as written. Any real-life practical advice that can be imparted would be greatly appreciated, so please write in.

i don't know much about astrology at all.. except i'm a moonchild...(cancerian), love the home life, emotional and moody... now, give me some chocolate, dammit! lol

Sorry to say, I'm a Cancer, too, and I usually have negative expereinces with Sag women.

Then again, maybe because the first one I ever met was my mother....

well to start, Cancer is a water sign and Sag is a fire sign. The opposites can present problems in finding common ground. Also, Cancer is a homebody whereas Sagittarius is a roamer. Cancer will work hard to get the Sag's attention, their personalities are after all quite attractive (traveller, philosopher, very creative) but once gotten there's a lot of neediness for the Sag to not wander. This can lead to jealousy and clashes.

The differences can be mitigated by moon signs however so this isn't the final word on the pairing.

Both signs are very generous.

Good point.

As one astrologer once advised me, Fire and Water can

(a) make steam heat,

(b) boil over, or

(c) make a small warm puddle that you just need to clean up.

As Spicey Kitten said, the other elements in the chart make up more of the difference. I've got a couple of astrology books, if you want to get together sometime and poke around with it...

I prefer to read the entrails of kittens. It's a much more accurate sysyem.

Water and Fire signs. Is that good or bad? I didn't get too far in wikipedia but I did learn that famous Cancer/Sag couples are Katie Holmes and Tom Cruise (eeeewwwwww) and Josh Harnett and Scarlett Johansen. Jared, what is wrong with you!

Kitten entrails work in a pinch as well...

Well, Steve, I'm not an expert, but I do know some things...for instance, it's not just your Sun sign that's important. Quite often, it's actually the LEAST important thing!!!

Being a Cancer is your Sun sign, which is the "face" you show to the world...it's your starting point, but it's not your end point. You need to know your Rising sign (what sign was coming up over the horizon at the time you were born), which is the "inner" you, or the "real" you...it's the you under the clothes, know what I mean? It's the sign that takes your basic personality and molds it or plays with it. You also need to look at your other planets, especially your Moon and your Venus when it comes to relationships. That's why it's hard to judge how a relationship will go when just looking at Sun signs...you have to look at the whole picture...

For instance, I'm a Scorpio sun sign, but it's tempered (no pun intended) because I have Sagitarrius rising...which is why I'm much more extroverted and talkative and open than someone like my brother, who is a double-Scorpio (Scorpio Sun, Scorpio Rising)...this doesn't mean he's a quiet sourpuss or anything, but he is quieter than I am...who isnt?! :-D!

Anyway, my girlfiend is a gifted reader, so if you want to talk to her, let me know.

All I know is that Sagittarians are the ones that kill people with arrows and Cancer's kill people with.. um, cancer?

Nonsense! Everyone knows that Cancers kill people with evil crab creatures from Planet Zero.

Just prove that it's not true...

Evil crab creatures don't come from Planet Zero! They come from Planet Zed. Everybody knows that. Sheesh... amateur...

All I know is that I'm a Gemini. Selfish I guess, but I've spent so much time trying to figure out my split personality that I don't even know the sign of my husband or my 3 boys.
