Planets influence our lives and there is no doubt about it. They influence the world around us and they influence our lives and personalities.
Astrology is the study of the stars and planets and their influence which uses many techniques for such analysis. It has been developed over millennia and its origins date back to ancient Babylon.
Astrology analysis begins with creating a natal chart, which is the chart of the placements of planets in a chosen moment of time. After making the natal chart, the astrologer analyses the meanings of these planets in signs of the Zodiac (especially personal planets: Sun, Moon, Mercury, Mars, and Venus).
The astrologer also analyses the placement of these planets in the houses of the chart, as well as the aspects these planets are making between them. These analyses can give a lot of information about the person’s character traits, their beliefs, interests, and the possible life path they will choose.
The signs where personal planets are placed describe the person’s basic traits and their interests. The houses where their planets are placed also show their focus of interest and the areas where most activities will unfold.
The aspects between planets give personal traits as well a picture of possible events that the person might experience during their lifetime. The aspects are significant tool for analyzing someone’s personality and potential.
They form when the planets find themselves at certain distances from one another. They can have auspicious and inauspicious nature in general, but the final prediction should be give after analyzing the nature of the planets forming the aspect.
Auspicious aspects are a blessing because they create opportunities and enable the person progress without much stress and effort.
They clear the path before the person enabling them to achieve their goals. They allow the planets to cooperate and show the best in their nature.
Inauspicious aspects usually block the energy of the planets creating the aspect creating obstacles and in some cases preventing the person from getting what they desire. The obstacles and delays they create require patience and determination to overcome.
The aspects can also be major or main and minor. The major aspects are most important in any astrology analysis. These aspects are conjunction, sextile, trines, oppositions and squares.
Trines are major aspects wit auspicious nature. They are considered the luckiest by many astrologers. They form when the planets are 120 degrees apart. Trines enable the planets to cooperate and create fortunate opportunities for success.
Astrology also has a technique to analyze relationships between people and their potential. This technique is called synastry.
Synastry analyzes individual charts to determine information about their personalities and after it compares their natal charts to determine the compatibility of their personalities. Synastry can discover the issues they could experience in the partnership and suggest ways to avoid them or resolve them, if that is possible.
Synastry analysis determines the positions of planets from one chart into the other to see how the person will influence the owner of the natal chart. It also calculates the aspects between their planets to see how compatible these two are.
The aspects between the partners’ planets reveal the nature of their relationship. If they are mostly auspicious, this is a sign of compatibility of characters and indication that the relationship will most likely be a satisfying experience for both of them.
The partners are interested in maintaining the relationship and keeping it stable so they don’t have a problem making compromises and tolerating their partner’s differences. This is usually a lasting relationship.
When the aspects are predominately inauspicious, this is usually a sign of incompatible characters between the partners. They don’t have tolerance for each other’s differences which usually creates conflicts and disagreements.
These two need to put in a lot of effort to overcome their challenges but they usually don’t have the will to do so. This is why the problems usually pile up until they cause the relationship to end.
Relationships with challenging aspects are usually short-lived, unless there are some other aspects to support their longevity and neutralize the effects of the challenging aspects.
In some cases, synastry analysis reveals lack of significant aspects between the natal charts of two people which is usually a sign of lack of compatibility and interest between the people.
