What the Distance Between Your Signs Reveals About Compatibility
In astrology, the distance between two signs on the horoscope wheel forms an angle called an “aspect.” Aspects create a unique energy pattern that’s either harmonious or challenging. The astrological signs of your past and current partners are part of that story.There are seven possible aspects of the zodiac signs, each one bringing its own unique energy. Here, we explain what each one means for your relationships.
As the cliché goes, people come along for a reason, a season or a lifetime. Sometimes, a seemingly mismatched partner will inspire necessary growth. Perhaps you need to develop your generosity, learn to assert yourself, resolve an old drama with your parents. It might be a short-term kick in the butt, a call to action. So when you dump someone, don’t shoot the messenger!
For example, Tali had a semi-torturous relationship with a musically-gifted Scorpio man who spent most nights composing amazing songs, then bingeing on gin and bodega Chardonnay. His extreme behavior was a wakeup call: Tali realized that she had overlooked her own desire to sing and express her creativity. While she skipped the blackouts and hangovers, she did pick up the microphone and let herself belt out some tunes. The relationship has faded into history, but Tali hits the karaoke bar several nights a month with her (Scorpio moon) sisters, while her independent Aries husband enjoys his home alone time—a win-win.
As long as you’re taking the leap into love, you might as well get something out of it. Here’s how astrology and aspects can help you turn your relationships into soul-elevating personal growth. (To find how your sign matches up with another sign, check out our astrology love matcher horoscopes!)
