Happy, long-lasting marriage is a rare delight - karmically speaking at least. Long-term partnership requires similar basic attitudes and thinking. In astrology, marriage and other important and great partnerships are determined by the seventh house (part of the sky through which the Sun moves every day from 4 to its setting).
The seventh house is ruled by diplomatic, graceful sign - Libra. Libra is a cardinal sign, which is very brave and highly motivated. At the same time, it is the air sign - intellectual, willing to talk, a good listener to whom it's especially important to maintain good and fluent communication.
Elements - earth, water, air and fire can give you insight into the sustainability of marriage.
Is your partner a fiery sign? Aries, Leo and Sagittarius are passionate signs. Even outside the bedroom, your fiery partner is looking for a way to express his passion. Fire signs are almost impossible to discourage, and they often don't need to be encouraged to do anything.
Feed their passion in a positive way and you don't have to be afraid that you will be facing a major problem in your relationship. Aries always need praise and honesty. Leo likes to be admired, and Sagittarius will respond best to the enthusiasm.
To Earth signs safety is especially important. Taurus, Virgo and Capricorn will appreciate the practicality, responsibility and thoroughness. Nobody is perfect and earth signs know that very well, but they will appreciate it if you try to be. Comfort and style are important to Taurus.
If you buy something you financially can't afford, Taurus will understand. Little things that will show her that she is loved are important to Virgo. Capricorn hates wasting money and extravagance, and admires the economy and persistence.
Is your partner air sign? Communication makes every Gemini, Libra or Aquarius happy. The worst you can do is to stop talking, so keep the dialogue going and listen so you always have a ready answer. Gemini hates boredom and want to be constantly involved in everything that is happening. Libra wants peace and harmony for everyone in the world, especially for two of you. Aquarius may seem distant, but she wants deeper intellectual discussions in which they will express their views and opinions.
Emotions and honesty are very important to water signs. No logic or concerns of the real world can't compete with the importance of loyalty and love.
Cancer especially appreciates family closeness. Scorpio craves for complete commitment and dedication. Pisces may seem demanding and intrusive from time to time, but security and your love are all that they need.
Even though astrology can offer you some interesting information, your will and personal decisions are much more important and more powerful than any horoscope and compatibility charts.
