When we meet someone we like, and expect things to evolve romantically between us, we get all excited and overwhelmed by imagining how things might look like if we were in a relationship with this person.

To find out more about them, we usually go through their social profiles in hope to find some more details about their life and their interests.

We look at their pictures to see what are they doing, or if they are dating someone already, etc.

One more way you can use to find out valuable facts about the person of your interest, is to make an astrological comparison between the two of you. How is it done?

There are few ways to do the comparison, but the most accurate one is to make a compatibility (synastry) analysis between your natal charts.

You do it by comparing your planetary placements to their natal chart and vice versa and determining the planetary aspects and their nature.

If the nature of the aspects is predominately bad, that is usually a bad thing, and indicates that your relationship with this person isn’t likely to be a good one. If, the aspects are predominantly good, the situation is different, and the relationship is likely to be a stable and lasting one.

To do such an analysis, you need to first make the natal charts for you and the person you are interested in.

For that, you will need the exact birth data for both you and this person, i.e., exact time, place and date of birth. If you don’t have this information, you don’t need to worry because you have another way to analyze your relationship with this guy or girl, by using your horoscope signs.

By comparing the basic traits of your horoscope signs, you will determine the basic compatibility between you two and the potential issues which could pose a problem to your relationship.

By analyzing their horoscope sign, you can also discover a lot about the character of that person.

In this text we compare the traits of a Capricorn man and a Cancer woman, aiming to determine their basic compatibilities.
