Ah, relationships. They feel so great when they're new, so terrible when they break down. Wouldn't it be great if you could have a powerful resource that not only identifies the problems, but also predicts what types of problems you are most likely to have and then how to overcome them?

Now you can find all of that powerful information in SignMates by Bernie Ashman. What the author reveals is that each person is a manifestation of his or her astrological sign. When you put two people together they are liable to play certain types of "games" which can be predicted by their signs.

"A game can best be defined as a repetitive pattern of negative behavior that interferes with the harmony of a partnership. It is an imbalance of energies that is created when one of both partners engage in thought and actions that are counterproductive or hurtful to them."

Ashman describes several games for each astrological pairing, then gives a strategy which shows how a game can be converted from a liability into an asset. Finally, he shares a "rainbow," the potential for harmony that can be achieved between any two signs.

For example, let's say that you are a Taurus and your partner is a Cancer. One game you might play is the "Muddy Waters Game." In this game, "Taurus looks for instructions that are easy to read and follow. Cancer has the power of intuition at its beck and call. When the two of you work together, it can feel like you are on different pages." The strategy for dealing with this is simple. All you have to do is listen more attentively. Two other potential games are described and strategies for overcoming them are given. Finally, you will learn that in this relationship you gradually open up to each other's ideas and dreams. "The gifts you can offer one another deepen with time."

If your relationship is that of an Aries and Scorpio, you may play the "Poker Face Game" where you always keep something hidden from the other, the "Battering Ram-Biting Scorpion Game" where you each try to fight for rights, or the "Erupting Volcano Game" where you hold back anger or resentment so long that it finally erupts. Strategies for dealing with these games are given, as are insights into the strengths of such a pairing.

Even if you know nothing about astrology, this book is ideal for you. With it, you will gain insight into the way you and your partner interrelate. This information alone can improve or even save a relationship. But just because this book can be used by non-astrologers doesn't mean astrological professionals won't get a lot out of it. This is an incredible reference to the way signs mesh, and having this information can enhance your chart interpretations. And finally, this book is great for counseling professionals. Often clients are unclear as to the real sources of their conflicts with others. This book can help you identify the problem and help find an acceptable resolution.

The sign your Moon was in at your birth describes your habits, comfort zones, the way you respond to your emotional needs, and how you express yourself emotionally. In relationships the Moon is just as important as the Sun. These two parts of your character must be integrated for you to experience the best with others. The sign of your Moon gives... read this article
