Since the beginning of humanity, people have been fascinated by the stars and their impact on life on Earth.
They observed the Sun and the Moon, and the planets, and gathered information about their influence on people and nature. They noticed how they influence personal traits of individuals and their nature and destiny.
Their collected experience and knowledge became a part of a discipline called astrology. The accuracy of astrology predictions and analysis often amazes, but despite of all that astrology is still considered a pseudoscience.
Astrology has many different techniques which can be used for analyzing. The simplest techniques analyze the planets in signs, natal chart houses and the aspects they make.
It all starts with a natal chart which represents an image of the sky in a certain moment of time.
The planets in houses of the natal chart show which areas are likely to be in the focus of interest of the individual. They also reveal the areas where there will be the most action.
Planets in signs reveal the character of a person and their basic personality traits (this is especially true for personal planets).
The aspects between planets also reveal personal traits and can indicate the events the person might experience during their life. Aspects are certain angles formed between planets with a specific meaning. They differ in nature and can be challenging or harmonious.
The nature of the aspect should always be seen through the nature of the planets forming the aspect.
Challenging aspects are usually a sign of obstacles and difficulties that the person might encounter while trying to accomplish their goals. They also indicate conflicting nature or other blockages in the personality.
Challenging aspects sometimes prevent achievements or require a lot of patience and effort to accomplish some goal. They block the energy of the planets and trigger the worst in the planet’s nature to show into the person’s life.
These aspects can also inspire endurance and effort which ensure achievements.
Harmonious aspects are different. They allow the energy of the planet to freely express. They inspire the best in the planet’s nature to appear in the person’s life. Harmonious aspects are responsible for creating opportunities and chances for success without much effort.
Aspects are also divided in major and minor type. Major aspects are more important but some astrologers pay equal attention to both types. Of course, the strongest impact have the exact aspects.
The trine is a major aspect and has harmonious nature. Trine is formed when there is 120 degrees distance between planets.
This aspect is considered the luckiest by many astrologers. It gives the person many opportunities to achieve success and fulfill their desires without much effort.
Synastry is one of astrology techniques. It is used for analyzing relationships and their potential. When people are in some kind of interaction with each other, their natal chart planets also interact.
The relationship between their planets reveals the nature of their personal relationship. It sounds impossible, but it is accurate.
When analyzing relationship potential using synastry, the astrologer first analyzes the natal charts of two individuals to determine their personality traits and preferences.
After that, the astrologer compares their natal charts to determine whether they are compatible or not.
He analyzes the placements of the planets in the natal chart of the other person to see in which areas of life the owner of these planets affects the owner of the birth chart. He also calculates the aspects between the natal charts of these two people; they reveal the true nature of the relationship.
A relationship where most aspects between the natal charts of the partners are harmonious is usually a lasting union. Harmonious aspects are an indication of compatible characters and the partners getting along well.
The relationship is a satisfying experience for the both and they enjoy being together. They are always ready for compromise and tolerate their partner’s differences without trying to change them.
Such aspects have a beneficial influence on the relationship and neutralize the effect of challenging aspects between their planets.
These two are doing everything they can to prevent issues from arising and they try t resolve their problems as soon as they appear.
When the planets between two natal charts create mostly challenging aspects, this is usually an indication that the natures of two people are incompatible.
These two might also get into conflicts due to difference of opinion. They usually don’t have similar interests. Sometimes challenging aspects can be a sign of violence between the partners. The partners don’t feel the need to fight for their relationship.
Challenging aspects require a lot of patience, compromise and tolerant behavior, which usually lacks on both sides.
The partners might be overly critical towards their partner’s behavior and/or personal traits, which leads to conflicts and arguments. Usually this relationship drains the energy from the partners. It is a bothersome experience and it is often short-lived.
In some cases, the relationship might last a lifetime but both partners suffer.
When the analysis of two charts reveals no significant aspects between their planets, this usually indicates lack of compatibility and interest to form a union on both sides.
