Relationship astrology takes years of practice to try to arrive at a point that covers every individual, and I can tell you here that it is impossible with a lot of practice and dedication to this fascinating art.
Astrology relies on the fundamentals of when a person comes into this world and the position of the various stars, and planets in relation to their position to the Sun and the Moon. Having said that, a person born under a specific star sign does indeed have unique characteristics or recognized traits that have a direct bearing on compatibility within a relationship. This is primarily due to the unique personality traits, likes, dislikes and ways of viewing the world that inevitably pertain to the respective sign.
Getting to grips with relationship astrology
On starting out, to get as an accurate reading as possible one needs to view the inter aspect of the Sun and the Moon. Which one is forming a major aspect in the chart of the other and if not is there a crossover point mid-chart that will give me a fundamental starting point on which to proceed. To proceed with a composite chart there needs to be an interaction varying in multiples of 45 degrees between the mid or major points between Sun and Moon.
The Moon is a powerful source in synastry if spending a lot of time together or setting up home. Notes on the aspects between the A and B charts of the Moon and the two charts at crossing points of the Planets play a significant part in a true reading. Challenged inter-aspects or un-aspected inter specs involving the Moon may indicate obstacles within the relationship. Both parties, or, either individual may find the union unsatisfying in either scenario on this basic level.
Time of birth
The importance of an exact time of birth cannot be underestimated as a few minutes, either way can have a direct bearing on the outcome of the reading and subsequently the outcome of the entire relationship overall. Most people know their birthday but are not familiar with the exact time of birth, so if this is the case with you then you should exercise caution of the outcome of the reading as it will not in this case, be entirely accurate. However, having said this, the reading should still provide a detailed and in-depth depiction of the probabilities and potentials of the relationship overall.
In astrology, the vertex is an important point which relates to a powerful feeling of being drawn in by fate. This vertex acts as a conjunction between the personal points of the couple in relation to the position of the planets. The Nodal axis indicates through the Natal chart powerful lessons of learning indicating that one party is showing a greater desire for the relationship than the other. This is never a good thing in any relationship as one party is therefore, either likely to stray or end the relationship entirely.
The natal chart of the point in time when we are born is the focal point in astronomy. This point indicates which house or element that is associated with our individual birth sign. Fire, Water, Air, and Earth are the four houses that the twelve signs of the zodiac fall into. The word zodiac is Greek for the ring of animals and names were allocated between creatures and important figures in Greek history. Cancer is the crab, which comes under a water sign, with Virgo under the earth sign, with each having distinctive traits associated that can then attract or repel differing individuals. For instance, a Virgo male coupling with a Cancer female will have its own positive and negative connotations. The Virgo man can be very cerebral, while a Cancerian lady can very much lead with her heart. While these two sound somewhat incompatible from this broad statement, they both can actually get on very well together and make a very nice couple as they both tend to enjoy both the cerebral and emotional aspects of a relationship, which they respect in each other. This is an interesting couple to analyse and you can find our more about the Virgo male at virgomen.net and the Cancerian woman at astrologyzone.com.
This should help to give you a good overview of relationship astrology and what it entails. I’m sure you can appreciate that it is actually a rather deep and complex subject with many moving parts, which is why it is important to visit an experienced astrologer in order to get an accurate reading of any kind.
