Astrology is an excellent means to find out more about people and their personal traits, their desires and interests in life, the path they are likely to choose and the destiny they are likely to experience.
Astrology can also be used to determine events in the world as well as to analyze relationships between people and their potential and nature.
Since the beginning of humanity people became fascinated with the Sun and the Moon, the stars and planets they could see.
They observed and registered their influence on humans and the world which surrounded them. They realized how strong the impact of the stars and the planets was on human existence and they respected them as if they were deities, especially the Sun.
The simplest techniques astrology uses are based on analyzing the planets’ positions during a certain moment, usually the moment of birth when a person is analyzed.
Astrologers analyze the meanings of planets in the signs of the Zodiac (especially personal planets like Mars, Sun, Moon, Venus, and Mercury).
They also analyze the aspects planets form between them as well as the positions of planets in different houses of the natal chart (a chart of planetary positions made for a certain moment in time).
It is fascinating how the planets in the moment of someone’s birth can shape their nature and their entire life and future.
The placement of planets in the signs of the Zodiac gives the basic personal traits of the person. The placements of the planets in houses reveal the areas of interest and the ones where there is likely to be most activities during the person’s lifetime.
The aspects between planets of the natal chart reveal the personal traits and the events this person is most likely to encounter.
The aspects are especially important for an astrology analysis. They represent different angles between the planets. They differ in nature; they could either be harmonious or challenging.
The first type is a beneficial kind of aspects which bring opportunities in the person’s life.
An individual which predominately has harmonious aspects is usually lucky and accomplishes their goals without much effort. Opportunities come their way and they don’t need to struggle much to achieve success.
Those with predominately challenging aspects usually have a different destiny.
They don’t get many opportunities and often need to struggle and put in a lot of effort to achieve their goals. They often experience obstacles and difficulties while trying to accomplish something. Challenging aspects often indicate conflicts and disagreements.
The aspects can also be divided in major and minor. Major aspects are more important and are used in every astrological analysis. The strongest influence have exact aspects and they give the most important information about the person. Major aspects are the trine, conjunction, oppositions, sextiles, and squares.
Trines are fortunate aspects and are formed when two or more planets are at a distance of 120 degrees apart. Trines are considered the luckiest by most astrologers. They create opportunities for success and promote progress and achievements.
People with a lot of trines usually don’t have any problems achieving their goals and getting what they want.
Besides being an excellent tool to analyze personalities and their likely destiny, astrology is used to analyze relations between people. The technique astrology uses to analyze relationships is named synastry.
The synastry technique is based on the idea that when people are interacting with one another, their planets also interact. The relationships between their planets determine the nature of their relationship.
It might seem incredible to many, but this approach gives very accurate results. The aspects between the planets in the natal charts of two people reveal their compatibility. If they are mostly harmonious, this indicates the compatibility of their characters.
Harmonious aspects indicate similar interests and getting along well with each other. These two have genuine interest to be in this relationship and maintain it.
That is why they are willing to put in the effort to avoid arguing and resolve their issues as they arise. This is usually an indicator of a long-term stabile relationship.
Relationships with challenging aspects are different. These relationships might in some cases be filled with violence and conflicts.
These two are usually not tolerant to each other’s differences and allow problems to pile up without trying to solve them. These relationships are in most cases short-lived and bothersome experiences.
If they last long, they might drain the energy completely from both partners. Lack of compromise and constant fights are usually the things which bring this relationship to its end.
Moon – Basic Traits
The Moon is an important celestial body, the Earth’s natural satellite. The Moon orbits the Earth in around 27.5 days.
It is believed that this body formed after the collision of an asteroid with the Earth around 4.5 billion years ago. Some people believe that the Moon is actually an artificial formation and that it was made by aliens.
The Moon is a very bright object. In astrology it is the ruler of the sign Cancer and it is exalted in the sign Taurus. The Moon rules our emotions and memories.
People under Moon’s influence are often very emotional and have a long memory. They will remember good and bad things that they experienced for a long time.

The Moon also rules our habits, dealings with our daily issues, our subconscious, our beliefs, our home, etc.
The Moon’s placement in the natal chart shows our approach to our home and reveals how much we are attached to our home. It also reveals the level of comfort we require in life. It shows the areas and places where we feel most comfortable.
The Moon also rules our caring and nurturing side and reveals how much we take care of ourselves and our needs as well as the needs of our loved ones.
These people can be very protective of their loved ones. They are often needy and clingy to the people they care about and this can be considered as suffocating by others.
They can also be prone to mood switches, especially when Moon has challenging aspects. They could change their mood sometimes without a reasonable explanation. They can also be very possessive.
The Moon is the ruler of women in our life, especially our mother. The Moon’s placement in the sign and house describes our mother and the relationship we have with her.
The Moon is also the ruler of our femininity and our motherly instincts. The Moon shows whether we embrace them or not.

Saturn – Basic Traits
The planet Saturn is a synonym for wisdom and seriousness. This is a big planet and only Jupiter is larger than Saturn. Saturn is known for the ring system it has and the 82 known moons.

It is also the ruler of chronic states, illness, poverty, suffering, difficulties, and other similar matters.
For Saturn, it takes about 29.5 years to orbit around the Sun. When Saturn returns to its natal position (called the “Saturn’s return”), this is usually the time when the person evaluates their achievements in life by that moment.
In the natal chart, Saturn shows the areas where we tend to be or need to be responsible and it also shows how responsible we are. It also shows the areas and situations where we need to remain calm and patient.
