Want To Know If You And Your Partner Are Astrologically Compatible? I Can Help You There


Hey everyone! I’m Syd, TheNews.Top’s resident Blue-Haired Astrology Girl™. Recently, I invited you all to DM me your astro questions on Instagram and Twitter and told you I’d answer them, so let’s get to it!!!

This week’s question is pretty broad but usually the first question that pops into our heads when astrology comes up, so it’s DEFINITELY worth covering: Which placements and planets determine compatibility?

First off, when talking about astrological compatibility, aka “synastry,” I think it’s important to say that it’s only a blueprint for a friendship or relationship, but that everyone is responsible for their own actions in this life. PERIOD.

Basically, using “I’m a Gemini” to describe your own shitty behavior is a bullshit excuse, or using “My crush has an Aquarius moon; that’s why they aren’t a good communicator!” to justify someone else’s lack of effort also isn’t valid. You should NEVER accept less than what you deserve EVER — and ESPECIALLY never because of someone’s astrological chart. Just felt like it had to be said!

But with this slight disclaimer out of the way, there are DEFINITELY some key things you can look for in your and your friends’/your crush’s charts (besides just your Sun signs) that might give you a little more insight into your relationship.

(Of course aspects add a WHOLE other level to synastry, but in the interest of keeping things ~digestible~, I’m just gonna cover planetary compatibility in this post.)

First up, your Moon placements!

As I wrote in last week’s post, the Moon sign is all about “emotions, instincts, and your inner self.” So clearly, this is gonna be pretty important when it comes to having emotional connections with other people!

The general “rule” across astrology is that Fire and Air signs (as well as Fire and Fire, and Air and Air) are compatible, and Earth and Water signs (same for Earth and Earth, and Water and Water) are compatible. Like so:

So you’re gonna want to compare your Moon sign with your friend’s/partner’s and see how they match up. But DO 👏 NOT 👏 FRET 👏 if they’re not technically “compatible” — more on that later…

Another key point for compatibility is the Venus placement.

Venus represents what you find beauty in and how you love.

The same elemental compatibility applies here. Additionally, if your partner’s Venus is in the same sign as your Sun (or vice versa), you can be sure that there is some MAJOR attraction at play.

IMHO, Mars placements are also worth noting!!!

Mars has to do with sex, aggression, and how we act in the face of conflict, so, ya know, this is also kinda important in relationships!

OK, so…what if your Moon/Venus/Mars placements are NOT compatible?!?!?!

Well, personally, I’d argue that if synastry is, like, TOO perfect, it’s kinda boring. But that’s a Hot Take™!

I think there needs to be a little friction in order for two people to challenge each other and ultimately grow. So all this to say, I think it’s actually fun if there’s a little astrological tension!

TL;DR: Ideally, you’d like your charts to line up elementally in MOST ways, but if there are a couple placements where you two don’t line up, it might actually do you both some good to be challenged in that way. Just sayin’!
