Picture this: your turbulent, mostly water and fire chart coincides with the diagnosis you're given during the worst week of your life. You go out in your PJs because you've been put on drugs that can cause self-harm, so you're not supposed to be alone the first weeks. You go out with your mom in a completely vulnerable state. You sit next to two family members as predictable as they come: a Taurus with newfound luck in the matters of money; a ruthless and cold AF Virgo with newfound interest in that Taurus because of the "accomplishments". As per usual you're being your silent self, observing and absorbing like a ghost, and what do they talk about? The best materials to redecorate kitchens. They don't notice. They're clueless. And man, can you imagine this in a marriage, even in a friendship, this level of superficiality? How depressing and frightening.
The water/earth compatibility template you read in 99% of astrology stuff is a lazy misunderstanding of the nature of both elements. I read most of the questions here, the concern is whether some man you have no clue about except for his astro sign, is interested in you, and this is the saddest, most pointless stuff ever. If any wisdom can come from this massive frame of accumulated knowledge through the course of 2000 years is that you get to know yourself through a series of trials and errors, and apply that knowledge to make it work with someone on a road just as bumpy. You try and try especially against the odds, until something clicks, the way life works.
