People have always wondered about the meaning of the stars and planets and their influence on human existence and the world in general. They observed the night sky, fascinated by its beauty.
Since ancient times, people gathered knowledge and experiences related to the planetary influence on humans. They named their study of this influence, astrology. The origins of this ancient study go way back in time, to the times of the ancient Babylonians.
Even though many people don’t consider astrology as a serious discipline which can give a lot of valuable insight about people and events, astrology has proven many times throughout time its value and accuracy. Unfortunately, it is still not considered a science.
Astrology analysis begins with creating a natal chart for a specific moment in time; that is usually the moment of someone birth.
The basic analysis, analyses the meanings of the planets in the signs of the Zodiac (especially the personal planets: Sun, Moon, Venus, Mercury and Mars) and the meanings of their placements in the houses of that birth chart. Also, the aspects between the planets are calculated and analyzed.
The meanings of personal planets in the signs of the Zodiac can give a lot of insight about someone’s personality, their desires, believes, interests, attitude and the likely choices they will make.
The planets in the houses of the chart give insight about their interests and focus in certain areas of life. The aspects give insight in the personal traits and the events the person might experience during their lifetime.
The aspects are very important for every analysis, especially the major ones, such as conjunctions, sextiles, squares, oppositions and trines. There are also minor aspects, which not all astrologers use. The strongest are the aspects with exact degree.
Basically, aspects are angles between planets with a specific meaning, which is also combined with the nature and meaning of the planets creating that aspect.
Aspects can also have different nature, which can be harmonious and beneficial or challenging and negative.
Harmonious aspects have beneficial influence and provide the person with many opportunities for success in achievement of their desires. They enable the planetary energy to flow freely.
Unlike harmonious aspects, challenging aspects have a different nature. They block planetary energy, create obstacles, and sometimes prevent the person from getting what they want.
In some cases, challenging aspects create conflicts and disagreements and in worst cases, they create violence.
Trines are a type of major aspects and have harmonious nature. They are by many astrologers considered the luckiest aspect of all.
Even though it might be hard for many to believe, astrology can also be used to decipher whether connection between two people will be harmonious or not. What astrology can determine whether two people could have a lasting union.
It does that using the technique named synastry. Synastry uses techniques used for analyzing individual natal charts, but analyzing two charts at the same time.
Synastry first analyses the individual charts of the two people to determine their personalities, their preferences and desires; then it analyses their charts by comparing the planetary positions in these charts.
It analyses the placement of planets of one person into the chart of the other person and the aspects between the planets.
The placements in the houses of the partners’ natal charts are very important because they determine the areas of life which are likely to be influenced by this relationship.
The aspects between the planets are also very important because they show the overall compatibility between the partners and demonstrate whether this relationship will be a satisfying experience for the partners or not.
Harmonious aspects usually indicate compatible characters and lasting unions because the partners are willing to put the effort to overcome any possible issues between them and keep the relationship alive. In this case, the partners want to make compromises and tolerate each other’s differences.
When the aspects between the natal charts are predominantly challenging and conflicting, this is an indication of incompatible characters between the partners, lack of will to maintain the relationship, lack of tolerance to each other’s differences, and in worst cases, conflicts, disagreements, and violence.
These unions are often not lasting and end abruptly. In some cases, unions with challenging aspects can last long, but they represent an exhausting experience for both partners.
In some cases, synastry analysis shows that there aren’t enough harmonious ties between the partners, which is usually a sign of lack of interest on both sides.
