Relationship Astrology

a couple in a relationship kissing by a park benchAnyone who has a fascination with astrology and how the cosmos and the positioning of the planets affects our lives will be interested in how the universe can come into play regarding any relationship that we enter into. The art of relationship astrology is called Synastry and is the study of how people interact with each other and why certain individuals get on well and others tend to constantly be at odds with each other.

Each of us, when we enter this world, is born under a sign of the zodiac which is depicted by a birth chart, (also known as a natal chart) of the heavens at the moment we take our first breath. Although an individual is grouped together under a specific star sign like Capricorn or Virgo for instance which gives them certain characteristics, it is the moment of birth that lays the foundations. At this moment, a unique signature is created for the person and points to potentials in personality traits, likes, dislikes and so forth. Taking a measure of the complete birth chart of an individual will provide tremendous insight into the potentials and probabilities concerning a relationship.

Synastry in Relationships

Most people who are interested in astrology are familiar with Sun sign compatibility. The study of Synastry is the study of astrology related to relationships. It is complicated because most people do not know the exact time, to the second, they were born. However, with more detailed information, an experienced astrologer can look way beyond the limited information provided by a person’s Sun sign and interpret considerable detail about a person and their life. With all the correct information, one may know exactly what kind of person would be good for another in terms of a relationship. Interestingly, an astrologer with a good grounding in synastry is able to look at a particular couple’s charts and know how well suited they are, if there are potential problems on the horizon and if the relationship will last.

Valuable insights can be gained from some of the main influencers in the universe and one of those is the planet Venus also known in Greek mythology as the goddess of love.

Venus, Planet of Love

Venus is the ruler of attraction between two people and is particularly important in astrological relationships, and interactions point to lasting attraction and significant union. The position of Venus in a person’s natal chart indicates an individual’s approach to love and how they handle a long-term relationship. Aspects of other planets in conjunction with Venus gives an indication of how and if a relationship with another will work out.

Each natal chart will give a reading based on the planetary positions, but the one to take note of, if you are looking for answers to a relationship, is the Sun-Venus inter-aspect. This will indicate the common interests and potential harmony as well as the likely hood of long-term compatibility.

A Relationship Compatibility Example

An example of a love relationship between a Scorpio Man and a Pisces Woman has to be evaluated by their general characteristics. He is usually confident, loyal, driven, and profound. She is artistic, ethereal, ultra- feminine and sometimes unfathomable. The Scorpio male can be cool at first but with commitment comes possessiveness. The Pisces female, however, is a water sign and may struggle with self-esteem. The combination could prove strong if each is prepared to accept the others underlying faults. You can find out more information about the Pisces female in this article and the Scorpio male, here.

The above example is of two people born under a specific star sign relating to one of the twelve zodiac signs. However each of these signs just gives an indication of a person’s character make up, and to get a true reading of the chart at the time of birth needs to be consulted. All of us are governed by the positions of the planets in the solar system and are individual to each of us. The different energies depicted by our natal charts create specific energies when we enter a new relationship with another person.

Overview Of The Planets In Our Solar System

Overview Of The Planets In Our Solar System

the solar systemThe natural world truly is a wonderful place and it doesn’t matter if you are looking at things on a microscopic level or on a universal level, there are amazing things to see and learn. One of those things that are close to us in the solar system, and just taking a look into this unique area is going to help you have a greater appreciation for what the universe has to offer as well.

Our Solar System And The Planets

Orbits

The first stop in this overview of our solar system is the orbits of the planets. Up until recently, there were nine planets but now, there are only eight that are recognized, thanks to the decision to remove Pluto from the list. It also contains the sun, which is an average size star and it is located in the centre of our solar system. Along with the planets are also dwarf planets as well as satellites that revolve around the planets.

The inner and outer solar systems

The inner solar system consists of 5 planets and the sun. Those planets are Mercury, Venus, Earth, and Mars. Outside the orbit of Mars is the main asteroid belt and then you have the outer planets of the solar system, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune and the dwarf planet, Pluto.

The orbits of the planets are not circular but rather, they are elliptical. The only exception is Mercury, which is very close to circular. In addition, most of the orbits of the planets are on a very similar plane, which is approximately 7 degrees from the sun’s equator.

Another interesting thing about the solar system is the fact that the majority of it is not made up of matter but rather, it is empty space. There are vast gulfs between the planets and in some cases, those distances may be much larger than others. That is especially true when you get into the outer solar system.

All of the planets orbit the sun in the same direction. If you are looking down from the north pole to the sun, you would see that it was a counterclockwise motion for those orbits. In addition, the majority of the planets also rotate in a counterclockwise direction when looking down from the North Pole. The exception is Venus and Uranus. Pluto also rotates in a clockwise direction.

It can sometimes be difficult to truly envision the size and scope of the solar system in which we live. Some of the planets are so large in relation to the earth where we live that the earth itself could fit inside of them many times over. In addition, once you begin to look outside of the solar system, you see that the distances become so vast that they really are hard to envision when you try to consider the scale.

Interestingly, it is from the observation of our solar system and the various star constellations that has resulted in the theory of astrology and the use of horoscopes.

The solar system truly is a marvelous place to live. Our Earth, however, is a unique planet and it is one that is well-suited for life. You will not find a similar planet anywhere else in the known universe. It is a part of this wonderful system that is known as our solar system.
