Astrology Zodiac Divisions
Every sign of the zodiac represents a different personality type. The western zodiac is based on constellations in the sky. If you search for a rational connection between these twelve signs or constellations and happenings on Earth, you won't find any. Despite no direct correlation whatsoever, somehow, the patterns observed in the sky, when an individual is born, seem to predict his disposition and future, to a fair degree of accuracy. There seems to be a connection between human personalities, happenings on Earth and the presence of the Sun in these zodiac signs. The correlation may not be causation, but this synchronicity between the events of the heavens and Earth has been studied for centuries by humans and harnessed to gain a degree of predictability in an unyielding chaotic universe. We explore the predictions of the western and Chinese zodiac in terms of compatibility between individuals belonging to different signs.

Here are individual compatibility charts for each one of the signs. Compatibility in relationships is largely dependent on the degree of overlapping in core values and beliefs which two people share. Every zodiac sign is a representation of certain core values and qualities which are inherent in the personality of a person born under that sign. The intensity of expression of a quality varies as you travel across the zodiac signs.
There are some signs which share a large set of qualities and core values and on that basis, all the 12 signs are divided into four categories, containing three each, which are:
  • Fire Signs - Aries, Leo, Sagittarius
  • Earth Signs - Taurus, Virgo, Capricorn
  • Air Signs - Gemini, Libra, Aquarius
  • Water Signs - Cancer, Scorpio, Pisces
These categories are named after elements of nature (Fire, Earth, Water and Air) as they symbolize the combined qualities of all these signs. People born under fire signs are enthusiastic, aggressive and strong willed extroverts. People born under Earth signs are practical, materialistic and introverts. Water sign people are emotional and sympathetic towards others. Air sign people tend to be detached, analytical and flexible extroverts.

Chinese Zodiac Sign Compatibility Chart
Chinese Zodiac Signs
Chinese astrology dates back to 10th century BC, the days of Zhou dynasty in China. Like western astrology, Chinese zodiac is characterized by 12 signs or animals that are representative of various human temperaments. Even so, similarities end there, as this oriental astrological system is radically different in the way it assigns signs to individual. Instead of months, the Chinese zodiac is based on a 12-year-time cycle, with all individuals born in a year, belonging to the same sign.
Chinese zodiac set
Like every other system, the Chinese zodiac is based on a picture of the world, as ancient people of the land saw it. They believed the entirety of cosmic action to be a result of interaction or transition between the five processes or stages (Wu Xing) - wood, fire,Earth, metal and water. Each sign is made up of a combination of these elements or a result of interaction between these processes.
According to intrinsic abilities and behavior patterns of these signs, a compatibility pattern emerges, which is presented in the chart below.

Astrology is borne out of human experience and it's not a precise science. People are too complex for them to be categorized into just twelve types. You can validate this chart by checking your real life compatibility with people you know. If you find the chart to be true, use it as a rough indicator in checking compatibility with love prospects, relatives and colleagues. It is advised that you take the predictions of this chart, with a pinch of salt. It is not recommended that life decisions about relationships be made on the basis of a chart, as human nature is ever-evolving and the nature/nurture equation molds unique individuals, that may not yield to any kind of limited classification. At times, it's better to give yourself in to the magic of serendipity and let it do its work.
