Astrological signs may have a lot to do with relationship compatibility, with certain signs thought to be more likely to hit if off long term. A “healthy” relationship may be written in the stars, according to astrology expert Emily, who runs the TikTok account @astronomily.
However, she believes the exact placement of your birth chart could be the thing that holds the key to “emotional compatibility”.
A birth chart uses the date, time, and location of your birth to re-create a map of the sky at that moment, determining your placements in signs, planets, asteroids and more.
While your “star sign” is the exact placement of the Sun at your time of birth, the charts delve deeper to find which sign the Moon, planets and other astrological aspects were at the time of birth.
When looking for a long-term partner, Emily claims that the placement of your Moon and the planet Venus are of particular importance. She explained: “You can be physically compatible with a person but that doesn’t mean it’s going to last long term. To really have a non-toxic, healthy relationship your moon sign should be compatible.”

She believes compatible Moon signs mean will mean your emotions are congruous with your partner’s. This can lead to better emotional support and a happier relationship.
In relationships, the Moon signifies your innermost sentiments, which means it can aid a deeper connection.
Emily continued: “You need to be able to understand each other’s emotions and support and deal with them. And if their Venus is compatible with your moon well it’s going to be really easy for the relationship.”
In astrology, Venus represents love, sensuality, romance, beauty, affection and social appeal. Therefore, its location in your natal chart can shine a light on the attributes you are attracted to in a partner, as well as the type of person who is attracted to you.
When the Venus and moon signs are compatible, Emily claims “they love the way you express emotions and can easily support you”.
