Astrology Compatibility by Birthday

Fishing Guide to the Stars: Fishing for love thru the zodiac

The long title ought to be about as self-explanatory as need be.

As an astrologer, my most common question from clients, friends and cohorts: “I’m a (insert sign here). Do I get along with a (insert sign here)?”

As a writer, this text had the weirdest history. It started out as a book, at an editor’s request, then I popped it up on the web page, as I fine-tuned the material. Finally, I published it. Quick, concise, down and dirty look at what signs get along with what signs. Includes a handy thumb-nail sketch for each sign — along with bait suggestions.

Gonzo Astrology — I encountered the term “gonzo journalism” sometime back in the late 1970s, and it influenced me enough to call my old racing team, “F & L Racing.” It stood for Fear & Loathing, an obvious allusion to the work of Dr. Hunter S. Thompson that has influenced a great deal of what I have encountered.

Now the term, Gonzo Journalism, might have been merely a marketing label applied to certain small branch of writing emerging from a turbulent era of history, but the definition, as I understand it, means “journalism with no perspective on the subject at all.”

I use the term to describe the kind of astrology that I practice. I have a chart. The person that I’m reading for has a chart. The two charts interact, much like a compatibility profile, or a synastry analysis. No two ways about it, either, not to me. I’ve encountered a number of astrologers who all try to remain objective and do deep psychological work with astrology. That’s nice; works for them. The information is certainly there, but this is humanity and most clients are looking for two big questions to be answered: “When will I find a relationship?” and “Will this relationship work out all right?”

What you hold in your hand is a text that attempts to demythologize some arcane astrology stuff and make it all simple. Look, Astrology is a sacred science and a viable art form, practiced for the last couple of millennia, and now it’s up to you to figure a little bit of this out, and how you can make it work for you. Pretty simply put, Astrology is a language, a set of signs and metaphors. How these signs interact is kind of like putting a puzzle together. This text isn’t about some of the arcane subsets of astrology, it isn’t about how the psychological process works. It’s about “Girl meets boy, girl gets boy, girl loses boy” and why that happens. Which ones stick around, which ones don’t, and what are the odds on making it work? I’ve covered Texas from the New Mexico border to the Deep East Texas Bayous, from Oklahoma to the Gulf Coast and Mexico, and I figure that this includes a fair representation of humanity as we all understand it. Some of my allusions and references are drawn from literature while other sources include day–to–day activities associated with living in Texas.

Using this text

So it’s the New Age. Rather embark upon a discussion about the Age of Aquarius and its ramifications, or, for that matter, exactly when it all started, let’s skip to the meat. If ya’ll are vegan, the meat of the message is the same, it’s the juicy part of the vegetable. Despite my New Age, liberal leanings, I still maintain that male and female versions of each sign differ. Look up your sign, then look your target’s sign. Your “target” can be a real target, a person you’re considering as a target, a spouse, a boyfriend, a girlfriend, a life–mate, a significant other, your boss, your cubicle mate, or, in my case, the cat.

If you know more about the target’s chart, perhaps you know the birthday and have an inkling as to what sign the Moon is in, of maybe the person has a giant cluster of planets in particular place in the chart to lend a strong flavor to the chart, then compare your sign with that flavor. Some work. Some people are dead ringers for their signs. Other people look like the Moon Sign, Ascendant, or maybe a stellium of planets in one particular slice of their sky.
