There’s no doubt that planets influence life on earth and every individual in particular. People have noticed that long time ago. They gathered their knowledge about the planets and stars in a discipline which they named astrology.
Astrology is a study of planetary influence on human life and the world in general.
Natal chart is a chart composed of planetary positions in some moment in time, usually the moment of someone’s birth.
Planetary positions in signs and houses of the natal chart, and the aspects between the planets can give us much information about the individual’s characters and their future.
The houses where the planets are placed give insight about the areas where the person’s attention will most likely be focused and where the majority of activities will unfold.
The aspects between the planets describe the person’s character traits as well as the events they are likely to encounter during their lifetime.
The aspects are angles formed between planets. They can have either harmonious or challenging nature or influence on the individual.
Harmonious aspects create opportunities for progress and allow the free flow of planet’s energy. Hard or challenging aspects usually block or slow down progress and create obstacles.
The aspects can be main, or major and minor. Main aspects are the most important for astrology analysis. They are conjunctions, sextiles, trine, square, and opposition.
Trines are major aspects and are considered fortunate. They form when the planets are at 120 degrees distance. They have a balancing influence on the planets creating the aspect and allow the planets to cooperate.
This aspect creates many opportunities for success and fulfillment of goals. It also gives the planet space to express its best nature. Trines are considered the most favorable of all aspects.
Astrology can also analyze whether a relationship between two people will be lasting or not.
It can determine whether the partners will experience conflicts or the relationship will unfold smoothly. The technique astrology uses to determine relationship compatibility is called synastry.
Synastry analyses the birth charts of two individuals and compares the planets in these charts.
It determines the aspects between the planets and the houses where they are placed in the partner’s natal chart. This will show the areas where the partner influences the owner of the natal chart.
Aspects between their planets show the dynamics of the relationship and the basic compatibility between the partners.
Usually, hard aspects between planets in two charts are a sign of incompatibility and in some cases conflicts and disagreements.
For this relationship to be a successful and lasting one there needs to be some additional support from beneficial aspects between their planets.
If the aspects are predominately challenging, this is not a good thing for the relationship because it might be a constant cause of conflicts and disagreements; this is often a short-term relationship because of the tension that is created, but if it does last, it will probably be at the cost of both partners.
When the aspects are flowing and harmonious, this is a good sign for the relationship. Harmonious aspects between the natal charts of two people usually indicate compatible characters.
These two have genuine love and interest to be in a relationship. They are ready to make compromises and accept their partner’s differences.
Sometimes the analysis shows no significant aspects between the natal charts of two people.
Although this usually shows lack of interest on both sides, it doesn’t have to be a sure sign that the relationship isn’t possible or won’t happen at all.
