Linda Goodman is my Astrology guru. I have loved her work forever, and own all of her books in which I have read multiple times. She always believed that being in a relationship with someone that was Trine to your Sun Sign was the ideal match for you. If you have absolutely no idea what all of this Trine business is that I speak of please visit this post for more explanation. I still do believe that being with someone that is Trine to you is easier, but Linda wrote her books years ago, and times are changing.
I have noticed that a lot of people, including myself, are marrying people that are Conjuct to their sign. Meaning you are in a relationship with the same Sun Sign that you yourself are. I have been pondering over the past year why this could be, and I think that it could be for a few reasons. People are now marrying at an older age. When you live alone, or when you are single for some time, you form an incredibly important and strong relationship with yourself. As Carrie Bradshaw said, “The most exciting, challenging and significant relationship of all is the one you have with yourself. And if you can find someone to love the you that you love, well, that’s just fabulous.”
We are not in the days of our mothers and grandmothers anymore. We are no longer pressured to get married at 20, we are no longer obligated to find our self-worth through childbearing. Our 20’s are now a time for self discovery, not self-sacrifice for others. For those of you that are young mothers and fathers, I have the utmost respect and praise for you and I am not saying that you are not independent and self-aware, it is just harder to find that piece of yourself when you have other people that depend on you.
Maybe we are now marrying our same Sun Sign, because women and men fall in love with themselves before they fall in love with another?
Think about it for a moment….
I do not want this to be taken egotistically, but more of just something interesting to think about. I am a Scorpio (I have a Sagittarius Rising and Scorpio Moon) and I am undoubtedly married to my soulmate who is a Scorpio (he has a Leo Rising and an Aries Moon). I would be completely lying if I told you that our relationship was easy, but the things that I do love about him most are things that we have in common. We share the same goals, the same desires, the same lust for life, and we are on the same playing field. We are true equals to one another. Isn’t that the way of the future?
I have written 4 Conjuct relationship posts thus far;
I will be starting a new series in which I will be finishing the rest of the Conjunct Relationship posts. So if you yourself are in one of these relationships stay tuned. Conjunction junction, what’s your function?
