In a previous post I wrote that it would be neat if Baby Losavio was born January 20 or later because that would make her Aquarius. If she was an Aquarius, I wrote, she would be a water sign like the rest of the family. Paul is Aquarius, Joey is Pisces, and I'm Cancer. Well, it turns out that Aquarius is an air sign, not water. The water signs are Pisces, Cancer, and Scorpio. Considering that Aquarius means "water bearer," I assumed that it was a water sign. Not to mention that it contains the root "aqua." Silly me. The worst thing is that for the entirety of my relationship with Paul, I just assumed that we were compatible. It turns out that we're not. Uh oh.
Paul is Aquarius. Aquarius are generally considered to be compatible with the other air signs, Gemini and Libra, and the fire signs, Aries, Leo and Sagittarius. Aquarius are also semi-compatible with Taurus and Scorpio. Unfortunately Paul is not compatible with me or Joey, and won't be compatible with Baby Losavio unless she is born after January 20 and therefore, a fellow Aquarius.
I am Cancer. Cancers are generally considered to be compatible with the other water signs, Scorpio and Pisces, and the the earth signs, Taurus, Virgo and Capricorn. Cancers are semi-compatible with Aries and Libra. This means that Joey and I are compatible, and if Baby Losavio is born by January 19, we'll be compatible as well since she'll be a Capricorn. If she's born January 20 or later, we won't be compatible as she'll be an Aquarius. Oops. At least she and Paul will get along.
