Astrological Compatibility: Seeing Our Fates in the Planets
Some say the keys to romance can be found in the stars. Read on for an overview of how the planets may affect romantic destiny.
Some believe in love at first sight, but for astrologists, the seeds of a relationship can be traced back even earlier than that—the day you were born. According to astrology, every person has a natal chart, a celestial map that records the positions of all the planets in relation to one another at the precise moment of their birth. These positions form a unique celestial energy that imprints on a person at birth and lasts for the rest of their life. When two people meet, they also encounter each other’s natal energy, which can have a significant bearing on the relationship that grows between them.
Mapping a Marriage
The astrology of relationships—also known as synastry—attempts to average a couple’s individual natal charts into a single composite map. This method goes beyond pairing basic zodiac signs, incorporating the position of planets according to signs (date), houses (time of day and location on Earth), and aspects (the angle between the planets) in order to assess the unique ways in which natal energies interact. By poring over the myriad combinations of signs, houses, and aspects, synastry practitioners aim to provide unique insight into the path a relationship has already traced—and predict the orbit it may yet follow.
Bonus Points * In synastry, Venus influences romantic attraction, whereas Mars—the Roman god of war and candy bars—dictates a person’s sense of passion and physical desire.
