Lifestyle Compatibility in Synastry

Painting by Sofonisba Anguissola Excerpt from my latest Sasstrology post (please leave comments on the Sasstrology site):

"Synastry clearly illustrates chemistry and commitment between two people. However, one area that’s often overlooked during the initial rush of a new relationship is basic lifestyle compatibility. The attitude tends to be that any incompatible elements will somehow work themselves out. Or, if the connection is that strong, you may think that lifestyle incompatibility won’t matter at all. But once the surge of chemistry dies down, compatibility issues can be the difference between riding out the rough patches and deciding that the relationship is more trouble than it’s worth."
