The above headline is from an article on dating sites in the Business Section of the New York Times. Many of us are familiar with the mechanics of such dating sites as Chemistry.com and EHarmony.com where prospective clients are asked to fill out long questionnaires of personal questions and behavioral preferences. Then "scientific methods" are applied to the answers to match the person with the right love partner - psychologically right, that is. But there has to be a little more than a meeting of the minds when it comes to love. And that is why I prefer to use astrology to ascertain compatibility.
Astrology (using one's full and complete birth horoscope and not just one's sun signs) seems to me to combine psychology with the necessary chemistry. And it can also help advise you as to how to make your (future) mate happier and the relationship stronger. The mixture of art and science of astrology in relationships is called synastry analysis and has been around since the beginning.
But you don't need ot be an astrology expert to use simple astrology for synastry. While it is better to use someone's entire horoscope chart, you can do some back-of-the-envelope synastry. On your own, make a list of all past relationships and the sun sign of the person. Rank these relationships by degree of your happiness. You may find that you naturally prefer one or two of the twelve zodiac signs or prefer by element (Earth signs - Taurus, Capricorn, Virgo or Water signs - Cancer, Scorpio or Pisces or Air signs - Aquarius, Libra, Gemini or Fire signs - Sagittarius, Leo or Aries) or by Mode (Fixed signs such as Leo, Aquarius, Scorpio, Taurus or Mutuble signs such as Sagittarius, Pisces, Virgo, Gemini or Cardinal signs such as Capricorn, Aries, Cancer, Libra)
