I was reading a blog post from Carrots ‘N Cake that talked about star signs and their compatibility with others and it inspired to do a little research of my own into my own star sign and P’s. We are both Aquarius’s, his birthday being in the end of January and mine being mid-February. I’ve never been one to pay any attention to star signs or horoscopes or anything like that but it was kind of fun to read and also see some of the characteristics that are right on the money!
This was the first article I found: http://www.horoscopes-love.eu/aquarius-and-aquarius-love-match-compatibility.html. There were definitely some statements that rang true for our relationship. Case in point: “The Aquarius man and Aquarius woman duo prove to be a well-matched and attuned couple only if each maintains a certain distance and gives the other their personal space.” The concept of personal space was definitely a theme in this article and I’d have to say it is true for us. As much as I often complain that P and I don’t get to spend a lot of quality time together (because we really don’t! 9-12 hrs a day spent at work, another hour or so at the gym, weekends and evenings spent doing different chores, we may not even be in the same room from 7am til 8pm that night), I know it is equally important that we spend quality time apart. My frustration often comes with wanting our quality time (together and separate) on my terms and that is not usually how it happens. Give and take. Give and Take.
Another site I found, Cafe Astrology, also had some interesting insight: “You have an aloof air about you that others find attractive…. It is easy for you to feel claustrophobic in relationships that are too close, too needy, or too demanding of your time. If you have the space to breathe a little, all the better. This is when you are at your best. You are a curious person and enjoy intellectual stimulation in your relationships. Although you are not someone who would be considered flighty, you do not tolerate stagnation very well. You need to feel like your relationship is heading somewhere. Your ability to detach yourself from a situation, take a step back, and look at it from a unique perspective is a tremendous strength. As willing as you are to stir things up if you are in the mood to enforce change, there is a wonderful calm surrounding you that can be most appealing to others…”
I found this whole section was about me. Again, needing space, my tendency to come off as aloof and unapproachable, my desire to always be seeing progress. I also see these traits in my husband and I think they help us better relate to each other.
I really just did this out of curiosity – I would never base my relationship or any other choices on my sign – but it was interesting.
What is your star sign? Is your significant other’s sign “meant for you”?
