Love compatibility issues
Hi I’m if I have a Metal Element (Rooster 1993) and other person has Fire Elements (Snake 1989) but I have Water(‘93) and they have Earth(‘93). Even though the first elements match, the 2nd ones don’t? So does this mean that there is a closer compatibility with another Snake that is from another year that is compatible in both elements?

Actually, the zodiac compatibility is more important and the elements are less important so you are suggested to pay more attention to the zodiac and your own feelings.
