Each duality has a reason for meaning and has specific functions and needs. By understanding the needs of each duality we can be better in our own relationships.
Every duality holds specific lessons which we have to accomplish and become skilled at; these lessons appear in our life through crises which demand from us to be evolved.
Do not forget that everything in astrology happens for the sake of evolution and perfection of human soul and existence.
The 6 Dualities
As we stated before, there are 6 dualities that work and bring us 6 different kinds of relationship that people create.
Those dualities are:
Aries – Libra
Taurus – Scorpio
Gemini – Sagittarius
Cancer – Capricorn
Leo – Aquarius
Virgo – Pisces
We can understand in which of the 6 dualities our relationship works by creating a composite chart. We call opposite chart in astrology the midpoints of the planets and axes between two natal charts. For example if someone has his Ascendant in 1 Degree of Taurus and his Relationship has her Ascendant in 15 Degrees of Leo means that the Midpoint of the Ascendants is 23degrees of Gemini. So the relationship works on the duality of Gemini – Sagittarius. If you want to learn your composite relationship Ascendant and you don’t know how to calculate the degrees you can contact me with me through OM Times Magazine forum, in the group: Astrology of Relationships and Personal Development.
Now we are ready to learn the basic principles of each duality:
Aries – Libra Duality
The Aries – Libra duality is one of the most passionate and strongest we can find. Both signs are ruled by sexual planets (Venus and Mars) and they are very sensual. This duality usually exists in relationships that have as the most important factors passion and intimacy. Although love is something important there are also some important imbalances that they may create severe problems in a couple’s life. The “I” and “You” are usually in conflict and someone takes more than he gives and the other usually remains unsatisfied. This dissatisfaction may lead to power struggles between the couple and severe conflicts. The person with the strong ego has usually to lower his demands and the person who is more passive needs to learn to ask and demand more for himself. This is not something that happens in a day and it may need a cognitive – behavioral therapist.
Taurus – Scorpio Duality
Sensuality and extreme passions are the greatest characteristics of this duality. The couple usually has common needs and it wants to feel well not only emotionally but also financially. There is great stability in this relationship and they can sustain their union even when luck is not with them and they do not get the support from the others. It is also a duality that makes couples to last the test of time and live together for the rest of their life. The problem in this couple is sometimes the rigidness and the importance it gives to materials such as money. They may feel very insecure and unhappy during periods their financial situation is not going well. There is also sometimes a problem with “emotional suffocation”, the couple has a deep insecurity and the partners may feel not well giving each other the proper freedom, something that becomes tiresome later on.
Gemini – Sagittarius Duality
This duality brings joy and fascination to the couple. It usually creates a relationship with many interests and with the need to explore and discover many things within their relationship. This duality is very joyful and the relationship is often verbal and needs to share its happiness with the environment. The problem is usually the development of the emotion because sometimes people are more friends than a romantic couple. Also the problem with this relationship is that it is difficult to last as the couple usually feels not very connected. On the other hand this type of duality is positive when the people want to have a relationship which will have as a result their development of their personality. The problem is that sometimes a person in the couple is not highly motivated for the relationship and feels he/she just has a good time with someone. Infidelity is finally another major problem.
Cancer – Capricorn Duality
This duality is full of emotions but also disturbances. It is the duality of the usual phenomenon which one is usually more in love from the other. On the other hand it gives a mother – child or father – child balance in the relationship that it is useful for people that have age difference. Emotionally it may be a very fruitful relationship but usually has lots of obstacles as a result of fate. Sometimes the couple is isolated from the others and inhibited something that may create important problems especially when the relationship needs people to breathe and be developed because it is an organism that has to live and communicate in a specific environment.
These kinds of relationships are very deep and important for the people which compose them, when they understand that their whole dynamic perspective of their relationship… Love changes them utterly.
Leo – Aquarius Duality
A Leo – Aquarius duality brings relationships which have many ups and downs. Ego defenses and tribulations within the couple is a common phenomenon. Although they are couples with many conflicts these couples relationship lasts in time and are secure. The stability of the relationship is not based just in emotions but also on concrete knowledge of what they are. Sometimes there are instabilities in the way the emotions are expressed because one person is usually more serious or detached from the other. Also the other is usually more egocentric and has lots of unfinished business to solve. But when they come together they flourish and feel that they can fight all the problems together. They usually succeed in accomplishing their dreams but they sometimes need lots of patience and struggle with their own beliefs.
Virgo – Pisces Duality
This duality is the most difficult but also the most important when has to do with relations. Here one must learn the important lesson of devotion and even sometimes of sacrifice. Here the couple changes and becomes something entirely new. Most of the times there is a strong bond, even psychic that connects those two souls, it’s a bond which makes people feel so close. The problem is that people are not usually ready to behave with the right way in this relationship, for this reason the possibilities for the couple to split are very high.
Sometimes people lose their own inner balance and they lose control of themselves, as a result they don’t usually feel well in the first months. But if they feel really connected and they don’t get afraid of their closeness then they both are transformed to something entirely new. This duality is the most difficult because it demands from the individual to forget his/her individuality, something that in western society is perceived as a threat. Sometimes with this duality a sacrifice it is needed from one person to the other.
In the second part of the article we will deepen the analysis of the six dualities.
