People often generalize astrology. They research their sun sign and its stereotypical traits, disagree with them, and in turn, invalidate the science (and art) of astrology altogether.
However, astrology is far more complex than most people let on. There is the sun sign, which correlates to personality and is the sign most people identify with. Additionally, everyone has a moon sign and rising sign, both of which play a huge factor in identity and how people process emotions.
Even further, in addition to the main three signs, everyone also have nine other signs which rule all the planets in our solar system (excluding Earth)— Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus and Neptune. All of these planets influence different aspects of our lives, ranging from how we communicate to how we assert ourselves.
The planet we look towards when determining compatibility between two individuals is not the sun sign, but planet Venus— the sign of love, wealth, and pleasures, and whatever sign controls this planet for each individual. Venus plays a key role when examining compatibility between two people.
The sign of one’s Venus greatly determines how they act in relationships and qualities they need to make them work.
