Planets influence our lives more than some people could imagine.
Our ancestors realized that long time ago. They observed this influence on human lives as well as on events in their surroundings and gathered it in a discipline called astrology. This gathering of knowledge lasts for millennia.
Astrology analyses the planetary positions at a certain moment of time to determine the characteristics of someone or something or to determine possible future events. Astrology uses different techniques, but even the simplest and most common ones are enough to give a lot of insight.
The most commonly used analysis is analyzing the aspect of the planers in the natal chart, and determining the meaning of these planets in signs and houses of the chart.
The aspects give a lot of information about the personal traits and possible events the analyzed person might experience.
The major aspects are conjunctions, square, trines, sextile, and oppositions. Aspects can have a beneficial or malefic nature.
Trines are major aspects with beneficial nature, formed when there is an angle of 120 degrees between planets. Their influence is fortunate and they bring opportunities for progress and achievements. They allow the energy of the planets to express freely.
Synastry is technique astrology uses to analyze relationships. It can discover whether a relationship between two people has the potential for being a lasting one or not.
Synastry determines the compatibility between people and possible issues they might have while interacting with one another.
Synastry compares the planetary positions in two natal charts and calculates the aspects between them. The most important as always are the exact aspects, which in a way give the tone of the relationship.
Synastry also analyses the positions of the planets of one person in their partner’s natal chart. These point the areas where they will be influenced by the relationship and their partner.
If the dominant aspects between the planets are challenging, and there are not sufficient harmonious aspects to stabilize the relationship and neutralize the negative effect of the challenging aspects, the relationship will most likely be full of tension and conflicts that might lead to its end eventually.
This shows the lack of basic compatibility and understanding between the partners.
If the dominant aspects between the planets are harmonious, they will be able to neutralize the effects of negative aspects.
This relationship is stable and lasting and it shows that the partners are compatible.
They are prepared to put in the necessary efforts to sustain their relationship and fight for it. They are willing to make compromises and accept each other’s differences, which is a prerequisite for stability and longevity of any partnership.
Saturn – Basic Traits

Transits and progressions triggering Saturn often indicate periods when major lessons are learned, usually through events that require the person to be patient, enduring, and determined. Sometimes this marks a time of heightened responsibility.
Pluto – Basic Traits
The planet Pluto is since recent times a planet only in astrological terms. In astronomy, Pluto lost this status, and is now a dwarf planet.
The reason was lack of traits that are required for an astronomical body to be considered a planet.
Pluto is the Roman god of underworld, and in astrology, its symbolism is similar. It rules death and all process related to dying, rotting, and waste. It also symbolizes regeneration, rebirth, and transformation.
People under strong Pluto influence are often interested in subjects like death and spiritual transformation.
The transformation Pluto rules usually happens during major transits and progressions that trigger natal Pluto. Pluto also causes major social changes and transformations.

The natal chart house where Pluto is placed, points to the areas where the person might experience events of Pluto nature. If Pluto is well-placed in the natal chart, its events will be surprising and dramatic but will bring positive changes in the person’s life.
On the contrary, if Pluto has challenging aspects, this could indicate dramatic events of destructive nature that cause devastation in the person’s life.
Of course, this doesn’t always have to be the case, and the whole natal chart needs to be taken into consideration when doing an astrological analysis.
Pluto rules matters like domination and control. Pluto people can be dominant and controlling. They can sometimes be subject to control and domination of other people.
