How To Find Your Zodiac Love MatchFeb 22, 2022
Didn't find your love match in time for Valentine's Day? Don't despair! Your natal chart holds the key to finding the best match for you.
If you've been reading your horoscope for a while, then you're probably familiar with the cookbook way of finding love matches based on your Zodiac Sun sign.
The earth signs of Taurus, Capricorn, and Virgo are often paired with each other or the water signs of Cancer, Scorpio, and Pisces. This is because the earth and water elements are harmonious and blend well together. As a result, these signs share similar qualities of valuing loyalty, family, and a desire to nurture others.
Similarly, the fire signs of Aries, Leo, and Sagittarius are paired with each other or the air signs of Gemini, Libra, and Aquarius. These signs share the qualities of valuing change, adventure, and communication.
Although this cookbook method has some merit, there are better ways to find your match. One of the reasons it may be so difficult is because what you value in a partner may not be who you actually attract. This is due to a few reasons that can be revealed in your natal chart.
Venus is the planet of love, beauty, finance, art, and what we value. The Zodiac sign of your Venus gives you a clue about what you value in a partner. For example, someone with a Venus is Aries values a partner who is brave, passionate, and adventurous. However, someone with a Venus in Cancer would value a partner who is nurturing, emotionally available, and is family oriented.
For additional information, look at what house your Venus is located in for where you might meet your romantic match. Someone with Venus in their 6th house of work and service may strike up a workplace romance while an 11th house Venus is likely to meet their love match networking or through friends.
Another reason you may be having difficulty finding your love match is because there's a conflict between what you value versus who you attract. There's a little secret many astrologers don't talk about, but it determines the qualities of the partner you attract. It's called your descendent and is on the opposite axis of your ascendent.
Your ascendent or rising sign is the sign that was on the eastern horizon at the time of your birth. It's often referred to as your mask or how you come across to others when they don't know you very well. The ascendant is one of the top 3 signs that make up your personality and sets the tone for your entire natal chart. Your ascendent rules the first house of self-expression and is one of the reasons why people see you in a certain way. Your descendent rules the 7th house of relationships and signifies the qualities you attract in a partner.
Here are the Zodiac opposites:
So, if you have a Taurus ascendent, then your descendent is Scorpio and vice versa. The person you attract may not be the actual Zodiac sign of your opposite but may have the qualities of that sign. So, if you have a Taurus ascendent, you may attract a partner who is passionate yet secretive and may have trust issues which are common Scorpionic qualities.
Every Zodiac sign has positive and negative qualities. If it feels like you're attracting the negative qualities of a particular sign in your relationships, then the purpose is most likely to help you develop the positive qualities associated with your ascendant.
A good example is the Virgo-Pisces axis. If you're a Virgo ascendant, then you're viewed as organized, analytical, and value responsibility in your friends and partners. However, if you're attracting a Pisces embodying negative qualities, then they may lack boundaries, hate structure, and be unpredictable. This relationship disaster will help a Virgo ascendant realize they may need to relax a little themselves while still maintaining boundaries around what's important to them.
Every relationship provides you with an opportunity to grow and learn. Even if they don't work out, you get a chance to refine what's important to you going forward. There are other markers in your natal chart that determine how you function or what you value in relationships.
