The Natal Chart and Planetary
The first thing we need to know is how you personally approach
relationships and what your attitude and issues are in an over-all
sense. Because Venus symbolizes the love urge, I look to see what
positive or challenging aspects are involved. Venus with Mars
symbolizes romantic love and how they aspect each other and what
other planets aspect each is another clue to how you feel about
romantic issues and how you react when in a romantic relationship.
The Sun and Moon are also symbolic of the Male/Female polarity and
tell us much about our parents as well as how we function as adult
men and women. Mercury is important because it shows us how we
communicate and communication is the cornerstone of any
relationship. The midpoints connected to the planets and points in
your chart will give me an even deeper understanding of how you
relate to others.
The second tool I use is called synastry and is a method of
comparing the planets of one person to the planets in the other
personís chart. This tells us how one person will react to the other
and how each will impact the other person. There are no perfect
charts so we will look at the positive interactions as well as the
more difficult aspects between the individuals. Often, where there
are relationship conflicts between two people, just understanding
the other person's relationship style will improve the over all
union considerably. Understanding ourselves and the other persons
relationship patterns create more tolerance and understanding and
gives us a way to make our relationships work.
Lastly, we can combine the two charts into one chart. It is called a
composite chart and symbolizes the relationship as its own entity. A
composite chart is not only great for describing the relationship
but works very well when you are tracking transits that affect the
couple as a unit such as a house sale or a move for instance. When
an astrologer has accurate charts to work with, we can help you
understand your relationships and improve the quality of those that
The little named asteroids are quite revealing in chart comparison.
Where each persons name falls in the other persons chart will tell a
lot about how that person will impact you. I am finding this
invaluable when there are names available! The other way I use the
asteroids is to take the ones that are concerned with love and see
how they are working in the individual charts and in cross aspects
to each other. There are asteroids symbolizing erotic love, platonic
love, friends and lovers, mutual love, unrequited love and love/hate
relationships. They have proven to be very accurate indicators and I
love having them in my tool box.
