People have always wanted to discover the meaning of the stars and planets and their influence on human life.
Through ages of research and gathering information, a discipline called astrology was created, which deals with analyzing planetary placements in some moment of time and their influence on a certain event or personality.
In its most basic techniques, it analyzes planet’s placements in signs and houses, and their aspects.
Planets’ aspects are very important for determining traits and events, and should be carefully studied, especially if they are exact.
Major aspects or main aspects are the conjunction, opposition, trine, square, and sextile.
There are also minor aspects which have secondary significance in astrological analysis but shouldn’t be neglected if they are exact. Aspects can have harmonious or inharmonious nature and their effects will be according to that.
Trines are aspects that form when the planets are at a distance of 120 degrees. They are major aspects with harmonious nature. The trine acts in a way that enables the energy of the planets to express freely.
They create opportunities for achievement of goals and desires. Their nature is calming, and they clear the path to progress.
Besides analyzing events and individuals, and their future, astrology can be used for analyzing relationships between people and determining the quality and longevity of their relationships. Astrology discipline called synastry occupies with this analysis.
In the same way it analyzes someone’s personal traits, and their potential, astrology can analyze the relationship between two people by comparing their natal charts and analyzing the relationships between the planets in these charts.
Synastry has some other methods it often uses, but these are the basic ones.
In general, when the aspects between two natal charts are challenging, the relationship between these people could be full of tension and experiencing different issues.
These two need to put in the effort and compromise if they want to sustain their relationship.
Challenging aspects between natal charts often create toxic partnerships which can hurt the partners in various ways.
If the aspects between the planets are mostly beneficial, that is a good sign for the relationship because it implies good relationship between the partners, cooperation, willingness to make compromises, etc.
This relationship is usually a lasting one that will make both partners satisfied.
Synastry is very useful because it can point to the issues the partners could possibly experience and, if that is possible, give them advice on how to prevent them or overcome them.
