People’s fascination with the stars and planets and their influence on our lives goes way back in time. They observed and recorded evidence about this influence in a study they named astrology.
The oldest written records of astrology analysis can be dated to the ancient Babylonians. Our ancestors worshiped the Sun and the Moon as deities. They realized their importance and respected the role they had in our existence.
Astrology is still underestimated by many, even though it is often used a fun topic in everyday conversations. This is a great injustice done to astrology because its predictions can often be incredibly accurate.
Astrology gives us information about people’s personalities, their interests, beliefs, attitude, preferences in life and the way they present themselves in public. It also reveals the content of their inner being and the way they deal with emotions.
The range of astrology is extremely wide. It can give us predictions about future events and can also describe our relationships with other people and the longevity of these relationships.
Astrology uses different techniques for its analysis. The first step in analyzing is to create a natal chart, usually for the moment when someone is born, because individual charts are the most often analyzed ones.
The most common one consists of analyzing the planets in signs, houses and the relationships of planets with other planets.
The planets in different Zodiac signs (predominately personal planets like the Sun, Moon, Venus, Mars, and Mercury) give insight about the personality, appearance and desires of a person.
The placement of the planets in the birth chart show which areas of life will mostly be in focus of that person.
The aspects also show the personal characteristics of a person as well as the events they are likely to encounter during their lifetime.
Aspects are angles made between two or more planets which have a specific meaning. They can be challenging or have a harmonious nature. Challenging aspects usually create obstacles and delays or completely prevent the person from achieving what they desire.
These aspects make things difficult and require a lot of patience and determination. They also create conflicts and disagreements. Harmonious aspects create opportunities and help the person get what they desire. These aspects ease achieving goals and clear the path to achievements.
The aspects are also divided in major and minor category. Major aspects are used in all analysis and minor aspects are used by some astrologers. Major aspects are conjunctions, sextiles, trines, squares and oppositions. The most powerful aspects are those with exact degree.
Trines are major aspects formed when the distance between two or more planets is 120 degrees.
These aspects are favorable and considered by most astrologers as the luckiest aspects. This aspect creates fortunate opportunities for success and achievement of goals without any effort.
Synastry is technique astrology uses to analyze relationships and their potential. Its premise is that people interacting with each other introduce their birth planetary positions in this interaction.
The contacts between their planets reveal whether their relationship is going to be a satisfying experience or not.
Even though for many this sounds impossible to determine just by comparing the natal charts of two people such analyses are possible and very accurate.
Synastry analyzes where the planets from one chart are placed in another because these houses show the areas where the relationship will affect the life of that person. Synastry also analyzes the aspects between the positions of the planets in two charts.
The aspects reveal whether the couple is compatible or not. If most of the aspects are harmonious this is usually an indication that the people have compatible characters and they have sincere interest to be in the relationship.
This is usually a sign that they are prepared to make compromises and tolerate each other’s differences to maintain their relationship.
When the majority of aspects are challenging, this is usually an indication that the two people aren’t compatible. They usually don’t have the necessary understanding and tolerance which are required for a stable and lasting relationship.
These relationships are often full of conflicts and in worst cases violence. They are usually short-lived.
Some analysis, demonstrate a lack of significant aspects between two natal charts. This is usually a sign that the partners lack interest for each other.

The place where Saturn is positioned in the natal chart should be noted because this area is usually the one where the person might experience struggle, difficulties or obstacles and which requires more patience from the person to finally achieve success.
These are usually the areas for the person will be confronted with situations when major like lessons will be learned; these are also the areas where the person might be required to show more responsibility or will need to take care of someone or something.

Saturn Trine Uranus Synastry
The trine aspect between someone’s Saturn and another person’s Uranus in synastry is an aspect that helps neutralize the basic differences between their personalities.
Saturn is usually traditional and conservative and is reluctant to make changes, while Uranus is all about the future and experiencing new things.
These opposite natures will have a hard time of finding mutual understanding and cooperating if there isn’t enough tolerance and will to embrace changes and to tolerate each other’s differences.
Uranus might help Saturn to relax and embrace new things (if natal Saturn isn’t afflicted and overly rigid). Saturn might realize that he enjoys the sense of freedom and independence from self-imposed boundaries which Uranus has helped him achieve.
This could be a liberating experience for Saturn who might discover that he doesn’t have to be as organized as much and that he might stop worrying about everything and instead let things unfold naturally. Uranus might open an entire new world for Saturn who might find it fascinating.
On the other side, Saturn might help Uranus to introduce some order and discipline in their life. Uranus can be prone to miss the details of things and make mistakes as a result. Saturn might help Uranus attain a more detailed approach to making decisions and taking actions.
Saturn will influence Uranus to become less eccentric and unpredictable in his behavior and become more accepted by its surroundings.
Saturn will help Uranus understand that his eccentric behavior isn’t doing anything good for his life and that he needs to change and blend in while remaining unique and different without attracting negative attention.
These two might combine the differences in their nature to form successful partnerships. It is a good aspect to have between coworkers and business partners.
When someone’s Saturn creates a trine aspect with another person’s Uranus, this can be a beneficial influence to neutralize the differences between their characters.
When there is mutual will to sustain this relationship both sides will influence each other in a way that they improve their characters.
Saturn will help Uranus become more organized and find a way to control his eccentric attitude towards people without losing anything of its authenticity and Uranus will help Saturn become more relaxed and release his self-imposed restrictions and boundaries.
This is a good aspects for business partnerships and between coworkers as well.
