Zodiac Sign Compatibility
Star Signs Compared in Authentic Zodiac Sign Astrology
Your astrological Zodiac sign, also called your sun sign or star sign, is simply the position of the sun in your horoscope at the moment of your birth. That's almost the same for each date, year after year (except for the small deviations because of the leap years). The complete horoscope includes the planets, the astrological Houses, and the aspects (angles) between planets. That's a whole lot more.
Therefore, astrological compatibility predictions based only on your Zodiac sun sign can't be very precise. Still, they give some general clues, since the sun is almost as important in the horoscope as it is in the sky.
Astrologically, the sun shows your situation and sentiment when you're not involved in other things, for example when you relax or are unoccupied by something special. Your natural state. Some would say: the real you.
About Zodiac Sign CompatibilityNow, in your relationships, being able to relax together is fundamental, so comparing your Zodiac signs says something about how compatible the two of you are. Comparing the positions of your suns in the Zodiac reveals how easy or difficult it is for you to spend amounts of time together and adapt to the basic needs of one another.
Your Zodiac sign compatibility can only hint on the probability of how long your relation will be, and give mere glimpses of the exact nature of it, but they give a clue to how comfortable you are together and what might nag you about your partner, as well as what irritates your partner about you.
Your Zodiac sign compatibility shows the basic state of your relationship. The specifics, though, you need the complete horoscope charts to examine.
Zodiac Sign Compatibility of FathersYour Zodiac sign is where the sun is in your horoscope, and in astrology the sun reveals your relation to your father (your mother is represented by the moon). So, your Zodiac sign compatibility will also tell something about how compatible your fathers are to you and your partner, as well as to one another.
Synastry horoscope - two horoscope charts combined.
Synastry = CompatibilityWhen examining how compatible you are with other Zodiac signs, you must be aware that other things in your horoscope may suggest something different than what your Zodiac sign compatibility implies. Only your complete horoscope chart gives the whole picture.
So, if you're serious about using astrology to find out your compatibility with your partner, I recommend that you compare both your complete horoscopes. That's called synastry.

By authentic astrology I mean proper use of the horoscope, according to astrological theory. The complete horoscope chart consists of many more components than your star sign (where the sun was at your birth). The latter has quite limited applications, which should be respected. This website deals mainly with the complete horoscope, and states clearly when that's not the case.
About This WebsiteWelcome to the world of astrology and horoscopes! Here you find an introduction to the basics of astrology, in-depth presentations of the Zodiac and your sun sign, astrological predictions based on the outer planets, famous horoscopes and elaborate forecasts.
Mundane AstrologyHere are also several examples of mundane astrology - astrological principles applied to institutions, countries and the whole world. This way of using astrology was in the past much more common than personal horoscopes.
Astrology BasicsThe astrology basics present the astrological components and their significance in the personal horoscope. They are the twelve Zodiac signs, the twelve planets, the twelve Houses, and the five aspects.
There are astrologers who use additional celestial bodies, as well as additional aspects. I stick to the horoscope fundamentals specified by Ptolemy, the Greek mathematician of the 2nd century CE, in his classic on astrology: Tetrabiblos. It's the primary source to western astrology.
