Congratulations on your upcoming
wedding! With all that goes into planning your wedding day – the
guest list, the photographer, the tuxedoes and dresses – it may be useful
to add one more item to your list. How do your astrological charts
compare? Evaluating your fitness for marriage based on your astrological
signs can pay dividends for you and your spouse for years to come.
First, evaluate your own
fitness for marriage. Do you possess the best or worst traits of
your Sun sign?

Once you’re married, you’ll
want to continue to bring out the best attributes of your sign. The
signs that often do well in marriage are:
Libra – Classic sign of partnership
and cooperation, loves companionship
Pisces – Romantic and giving,
puts others needs above one’s own
Cancer – Home and family
Taurus – Satisfied with
consistency and simple comforts
If you’re not one of the
above signs, don’t fret, you can still have a successful marriage.
You may simply need to be aware of the things that can get in your way:
Aries – You like your independence
Gemini – Your attentions
can be scattered
Leo – The mirror can beat
your spouse for best friend status
Virgo – Work, work, work
Scorpio – You’re the brooding,
Sagittarius – You don’t
Capricorn – You’re busy
climbing that corporate mountain
Aquarius – That romance
stuff is a little too close for comfort
Also, consider your general
compatibility with your partner’s sign. There are many ways to do
this, and much more depth involved if you want to do it thoroughly, but
here’s a simple start. Choose a partner with a Sun sign that falls
within the same group as yours, according to the table below.
||Aries, Gemini, Leo, Libra,
||Taurus, Cancer, Virgo, Scorpio,
Group A signs generally have
a more socially outgoing and experimental temperament, whereas Group B
signs have a more reserved and conservational temperament. If your
Sun signs fall in different groups, you may have to show extra patience
in understanding one another, but you can balance each other out nicely.
There’s another secret to
marriage success, and that’s using the timing of Venus (planet of love)
and the Moon (domestic happiness) to select a good marriage time and date.
The idea behind choosing a wedding date according to the stars is that
a marriage occurring under good planetary conditions is like a seed planted
in good soil -- it will have the best chance of blossoming well through
the years. Though there are no guarantees, much can be done through
selecting a good wedding date to minimize problem areas and enhance the
probability of a strong and fruitful future.
May you have much joy as
you plan your wedding day, and many happy years together!
