When considering compatibility, keep in mind that the signs correlate with the houses.
Aries, the first sign is associated with the first house.
Taurus, the 2nd sign correlates with the the 2nd house.
Gemini/3rd, Cancer/4th and so on through the zodiac.
Consequently someone with a lot of planets in the 2nd house will have a nature similar to someone with a lot of planets in Taurus. Consider this when judging relationships.
If you have two Scorpio / 8th house flavored people, you have few problems.
On the other hand if you’ve pair two Leo types who both want to be the STAR you have dreadful problems.
Note this stuff is not secret and it is not woo woo. It’s common sense which common people can understand and that includes you!
