Love in the Stars

I have dated quite a few girls in my life. If you were to put them in a line-up you would find very little in common between them. Some are taller, some are shorter, some are very skinny, some are a little bigger, some are members of the church, some are not, some have short blonde hair, some have long brown hair, pale, tan, glasses, big lips, small chests, green eyes, etc. I don't really think I have "a type".

I have realized however that I have a tendency to date older girls. I have really only dated two girls that were younger than me. Not only do I date older girls, but they are almost always a year and a half older than me, plus or minus about a month. I told Christin this the other night and she decided to see what the horoscopes had to say about this particular occurrence. I am a Libra. Two of my last three girlfriends were Pisces, the other was an Aries. I am working on investigating the rest.

According to http://love.astrology.com/lovematch.html :

Libra and Pisces

When Libra and Pisces come together in a love affair, theirs is a congenial and even-tempered romance. These two Signs are very compatible, making for a truly smooth-sailing love affair. Both Signs are attuned to life's aesthetic side, but they also have much to offer one another: When Pisces gets lost in a fantasy, Libra can apply that Libran proclivity for balance to help get Pisces back on track, and Pisces can return the favor by helping Libra see the beauty in love and empathy. This is an honest partnership that values truth and harmony in itself and in the world.

Libra and Pisces make great friends as well as lovers. They understand one another: Both can be indecisive and tend to work in multiple directions at once. Problems between these two are rare, but Libra can at times be too mentally manipulating for Pisces. Sometimes they can also stop mid-action due to both of their indecisive natures; if these two work on a project together -- either their love relationship or something else -- it can be difficult to get it to move forward. If these two do have an argument, they do tend to forgive and forget quickly: Libra abhors conflict and will do almost anything to avoid it, and Pisces possesses great empathy and can forgive out of understanding for their partner's position.

Libra is ruled by Venus (Love) and Pisces is ruled by Jupiter (Luck) and Neptune (Illusions). These Signs are quite compatible due to the feminine energies of Venus and Neptune working in tandem. Under Jupiter and Neptune's rule, Pisces is intensely meditative, philosophical and internal. Under Venus's influence, Libra is in love with love. Libra is the Sign of Partnership and always is more comfortable when in an intimate love affair.



Libra and Aries

When Aries and Libra come together in a love affair, the inherent polarity of the Zodiac is invoked. Aries and Libra are directly opposite one another in the Zodiac -- 180 degrees apart. Each Sign possesses qualities that the other lacks; combined with Libra's natural yen for harmony, this can be a relationship that enjoys great balance. Aries is the Sign of Self while Libra is the Sign of Partnership, and the differences continue: Aries is impulsive, excitable and ready to jump right into something new and exciting, while Libra is indecisive, peace-loving and prefers a calm, smooth approach. Aries can learn from Libra that their own way isn't necessarily the best way.

These two Signs share the great sexual attraction common to all Signs opposite in polarity. At the same time, though this pair's connection is amazing when it's good, it can be extremely challenging when it's bad. All polarities have energies that tend to tangle or knot if understandings can't be reached. As a combination, Aries and Libra are well-balanced. Charming, cultured Libra can teach brash Aries something about style. Libra prizes harmony in a relationship and will go to great lengths to maintain it. Aries is very decisive and can teach indecisive Libra about relying on intuition for answers.

Aries is ruled by the Planet Mars and Libra is ruled by the Planet Venus. This is a great match, as these are the Planets of Passion and Love, respectively. Venus and Mars go well together as they're the two sides of the love relationship coin. They're universally recognized as male and female and this relationship is a good balance of masculine and feminine energy. Venus is about the beauty of romance while Mars is about the passion of romance. What a good combination!



Ha ha ha. Though I don't pay much attention to horoscopes, these were too funny to not post. Except the part about Libra being ruled by Venus, the planet "universally recognized as female". I really need to hang out with more guys.

I think that Adam and I have the same sign which is bad. I'll check the web site and let you know if we're going to make it. Meanwhile maybe you should use that cheesy pick up line, "What's your sign?" it could work.

I find it kind of weird that even one of the younger girls you dated, or me, is a pisces too. So odd.

hahaha...that is so funny. I am like the same as you...you know, in girl form...i like, or at least my dating patterns have come to the fact that, i date younger guys and attracted to them despite my mental objections. What is this? I dunno. I'm a libra as well and don't pay attention to horoscopes. I found this post really funny...but i like it! :)
