What is the astrological significance of dating someone with the same birthday?
Submitted by: Lannea
This is a cute coincidence, especially in romantically involved couples – but it has no greater astrological significance than if the partners did not share the same birthday, I’m afraid. In your particular case, using the birth details you provided ( was asked to not publish them), I can see that just about the only astrological detail you share is the Sun in Taurus. Your Moon is in Gemini, whereas his is in Leo.
Your Ascendant is Cancer, whereas his is likely to be Scorpio, Sagittarius or Capricorn. His Venus, Mercury and Mars are all in Aries, whereas yours are in different signs. Even most of the slower moving planets have changed signs in the years between your birthdays.
If your birthday was the same day of the same year, especially in the same city or small geographic area, there would clearly be a much greater similarity between the charts. People born on the same day, same year and same time are termed ‘time twins’, whether or not they share a birth place, and there has been much research into this fascinating phenomenon. In your case, however, the sharing of birthdays has no significance beyond making it a joyful double celebration!
When 2 people share the same birthday this is called being an Astro Twin or Astro twins to be politically correct.
Astrological Twins are two unrelated people born on the same day, at the same hour, in the same world region. This means that both persons would have nearly identical astrological charts. As such, they would share the same interests, tastes, career choices, major life changes, etc. Comparisons of the lives of astrological twins is a fascinating study. Some well-known cases have revealed similarities in personal mannerisms, marriage partners— even the identical choice of a rug to decorate the home!
It’s fun to compare your life with that of your astrological twin. Stellar twins can be helpful to each other in determining their life paths. Two heads are better than one, after all, and if you both have the same chart, the two of you can work together to make sense of it. Do you both share a similar destiny? Has one of you had a significant breakthrough before the other one? Has one of you used the same astrological influences to become happier, more successful, more productive? These and other questions are the kinds of issues you can deal with in correspondence with your astrological twin.
For the purposes of this survey, every matched set of astrological twins will fall into one of three categories: Class A, Class B and Class C.
‘Class A’ twins are those born within 30 minutes of each other within a radius of 500 miles.
‘Class B’ twins are those born within 90 minutes of each other within a radius of 1000 miles.
‘Class C’ twins are those where one or both of the twins has an unknown time of birth.
When a match is found, you will be notified whether your astrological twin falls into class A, B or C.
In astrology the very same placement can manifest in different ways. Like some people get happy events when saturn cross their IC and some get sad ones.
When it comes to destiny and fate, it’s not only the stars that determine it, Our free will is a huge factor too.
My nephews are twins, born one minute apart. They are different but they both express the same charts. They have leo rising and Moon with a Aries Sun. One of them is the stereotype Leo. The other is a typical Aries.
Other twins might be born 5 mins apart and in some cases that can cause huge differences in charts (Like different rising signs, different house rulerships and placements). Also, some astrologers work with Duads and some twins get different Ascendant duads even if they are born 1 min apart.
Some adult twins relocate in different places which activates the relocation chart hence a different life. Not to mention the relationships they get into activates the synastry and the davison charts which would influence the influence of the transits!
