Relationships between adjacent sun signs - Mutable, Mercury, & Venus factors
Long term relationships between adjacent sun signs fascinate me. They shouldn’t be compatible. The modalities are not the same. The elements are not the same, or compatible.
I’ve noticed a few things. Of all these relationships I know of, one of the people has a mutable sun sign. All of them.
Mercury and Venus aspects also play into these relationships. These are the only two planets that are closer to the Sun than the Earth astronomically. They are always close to the sun. Mercury is within one sign of the Sun. Venus is within two signs of the sun.
Some of the couples have aspects between their two Suns.
I’ll use myself and my husband Big Sadge as an example. My Capricorn Sun is in exact semisextile to his Sagittarius (mutable) Sun. Our Mercury placements are conjunct. We tend to think alike. Our Venus placements are trine in air signs. The Venus placements are semisextile the Mercuries. — I won’t say we’re the perfect couple, but we are comfortable with each other.
I’m wondering if anyone has seen anything similar among adjacent sun signs
Hello Hello -- Hi Sue-Ellen -- Over the many years of doing charts, I see this all the time. The long lasting ones I see are the Scorp / Sadge couples. The ones I see that cannot seem to go the long haul are the Virgo / Libra couples. One factor you should also look at, well, really three......the moon, Chiron and the North Node. And many times you will find a Mars link. You are right about the "normal" incompatibles of elements. Then again, there are many long time relationships where the sun signs are not considered to be compatible, just everything else seems to work (me and my hubs),
That Mercury link you mentioned between you and your husband, I find that so often peeps forget just how important the Mercury link can be. Messenger of the gods, the communications Energizer bunny -- and if you cannot communicate with your partner, wellllllll.........that could be a major problem.
I’ve noticed the same thing, especially regarding mutables+other. Venus and Mercury aspects also just make sense. The most common long lasting ones I see are Pisces/Aries and Scorpio/Sadge. Interesting to consider the Mars/Jupiter dynamic. Very energetic.
Gemini with either Taurus or Cancer tend to be the next most common I notice.
