Astrology and Relationships


Astrology is a valuable tool for fostering healthy relationships, especially intimate and romantic relationships. In astrology, relationship analysis is known as synastry.

While it takes time to get to know your prospective mate, astrology and natal charts can prove helpful in offering insight into the person’s personality and individuality. These insights into yourself and others can lead to stronger relationships.

Someone’s personality and individuality shapes how they make decisions and their lives; astrology can illuminate an individual’s emotions, romantic and sexual desires, and even communication skills.

Natal charts provide information about the planets and their energies, and the significance of astrological signs, houses, and aspects. Astrological aspects in particular are fundamentally important for synastry. Below are some important factors provided in natal charts that may prove significant for romantic relationships.

Sun Sign

Sun signs are important because they reveal an individual’s conscious will and how he or she navigates through life.

Sun sign combinations are naturally harmonious. Generally there is an easy rapport between Sun signs of the same Element. In Western astrology, there are four basic elements: Earth, Water, Air, and Fire.

  • Earth signs include Taurus, Virgo, and Capricorn.
  • Water signs include Cancer, Scorpio, and Pisces.
  • Air signs include Gemini, Libra, and Aquarius.
  • Fire signs include Aries, Leo, and Sagittarius.

 

Sign Aspects

Signs of the same element are naturally harmonious. When planets and points unite (within the chart or Wheel) and combine their energies, it is known as conjunction. Astrologists disagree about the number of degrees that constitute a conjunction, although most agree that if two or more planets or points are within ten degrees of each other they are in conjunction. Closer planets will produce more of a symbiotic effect.

After the “conjunction” (0 degrees), the most harmonious aspect is the “trine” aspect (signs located 120-degrees apart). Trines are supportive and accepting of one another. Relationships built upon “trine” Sun Signs are usually very harmonious (unless other aspects in the chart override the Sun Sign).

After “trine,” the next most harmonious aspect is “sextile,” when signs are located 60 degrees apart. This aspect denotes the potential for relationship harmony, despite some apparent differences. There are two categories of sextiles: tangible signs and intangible signs.

  • Tangible signs: Earth and Water
  • Intangible signs: Air and Fire

 

After “trines” come the hard aspects that can make relationships into a difficult yet worthwhile challenge.

These relationships have both passion and intensity, yet also many challenges in the form of disagreements, drama, arguments, etc. Such difficulties can be overwhelming and may create exhausted frustration, so that the relationship dissolves just as fast as it started.

The most difficult aspect is the “square,” denoting a 90 degree separation between signs. The “square” aspect creates tension between the planets and points involved. Although some tension is necessary to stimulate action, too much tension leads to into stress. Relationships with a “square” aspect may run into countless obstacles and challenges before making the necessary compromises and adjustments.

After the “square,” “opposition” is the next most difficult aspect in synastry. Opposition indicates a 180-degree separation between signs and is created by halving the Wheel (or circle or Zodiac). Although there is tension involved with the “opposition,” opposites do attract. Folks with “oppositions” seek out others, as if to mirror or reflect their own inner or internal struggles. They learn about themselves through their interactions with others. When oppositions are used correctly, people are more willing to consider the other side. This can improve negotiation skills.

Sign Qualities

There are three categories of “qualities” in Western astrology: Cardinal signs, Fixed signs, and Mutable signs.

  • Cardinal signs: Aries, Cancer, Libra, and Capricorn
  • Fixed signs: Taurus, Leo, Scorpio, and Aquarius
  • Mutable signs: Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius, and Pisces

Now, for your astrological edification:

CARDINAL: Also known as movable signs, they stand for the seasonal changes, marking the four quarters of the year. They are related in some way to activity, to expressing oneself through enthusiastic and considered action. Ambition is a motivating force, and there is little delay in seeking to fulfill it. The driving force of Cardinal signs is strong and can result in selfishness and dominating rivals.

FIXED: Fixed signs tend to be strong, stubborn, determined, controlling, loyal, and reliable. They make for calm individuals, single-minded, determined, composed and self-contained. Recognizing their goals, those with an emphasis on fixed signs in their horoscope advance steadily, sometimes stubbornly, towards them. They are, in their own eyes, always right.

MUTABLE: Mutable signs produce adaptable folk who are flexible enough to change with the prevailing wind, if they see that change to be to their advantage. They are versatile and resourceful, sympathetic and grateful for assistance. Diplomatic, they are generally liked, though susceptible to duplicity.

Ideal Pairings

The six Zodialogical relationships or pairings that traditionally make the most ideal unions are:

  •     Aries (Fire) and Libra (Air)
  •     Taurus (Earth) and Scorpio (Water)
  •     Gemini (Air) and Sagittarius (Fire)
  •     Cancer (Water) and Capricorn (Earth)
  •     Leo (Fire) and Aquarius (Air)
  •     Virgo (Earth) and Pisces (Water)

    Q: The comment I have is about your topic on Islam and where it comes from. I would to like to know how did you come up with the information regarding Prophet Muhammad? I have been Muslim for a year and some change and Islam teaches us to study astrology and the zodiac signs Allah says in surah 85 in the English translation. I was shocked to read how the article dogs the prophet. I was shocked to read the statement about how the Catholics brought about Islam. I really like your concept about food and health I have brought some products from your company but the article really shook me up so if you could email back I would like to hear your humble opinion about this topic.

    A:

    To know what I know about Islam and Western religions one has to study all material and not be biased in reading and studying. Study Arab paganism, mythology, female studies, etc. and you'll discover that Islam, like Christianity, had pagan origins and it is not an accident that pre-Islamic history was covered up by the Muslims. before you had Koran you had Book of Kore. Her sacred day was Friday, the same day Jumah is on. her scared color was green, same color as the Qur'an. My article doesn't dog the prophet. You only feel this way because you are a follower of the prophet and your feelings and thoughts are biased as a Muslim. Do your homework, Good Brother! Ain't nothing sacred about Muhammad, Islam, etc. YOU are sacred! The human body is sacred! The Kabah represents you YOU! God did not speak to another man in order to convey a message to you. If God spoke to Muhammad God can speak to and through you. Religion is not from God but from man! This is a fact! Thanks for patronizing me! I am not a hater of Islam. I just speak facts and objective truth. I too was once a Muslim until I discovered the secrets about Islam and what the Arabs did to Africans long before Europeans did.

    Q: I'm interested in purchasing the Leo Formula. I was born on August 23, some years the Sun went into Leo on the 22nd, and some years the Sun entered Leo on the 24th. Usually the Sun enters Leo on the 22nd. The year I was born, and the time I was born, the Sun was still in Leo at 29`degrees. Many astrologers ends the Leo cycle on the 22nd of August. This is not always the case. I am born on the cusp of Leo-Virgo. Would you suggest I take the herbal formular for both signs? Thanks for reading!

    A:

    You could take the formula of both signs since you are born on the cusp. However, always remember that even though a sign ends on a particular day i.e. August 22, it takes approximately 5 days for the next sign to kick in energy-wise. So, people (Virgo's) born From August 23-27 are still under the influence of Leo, and thus technically, you'd only have to be concerned about Leo. Cusp people are influenced by the traits of the 2 annexing signs.

    Q: I would like to know if there are herbs that can help or cure ADD? My sons are exhibiting signs of the disease and are being tested and I was wondering if there are natural remedies for it. They have a hard time focusing and are frequently irritated.

    A:

    Please read our "ATTENTION-DEFICIT DISORDER" article in our article section. These children really don't need anything, just mental stimulation in a boring classroom. But if you insist something natural over chemical (drug), i.e. recommend NERVES TEA (1 cup before school).

    Q: My mother is 85, bed ridden and is fed through a feeding tube; she has this skin disease Bullous Pemphigoid! Her vital signs are good. Is there anything through your broad knowledge and experience that you might suggest for her skin? She is beginning to itch more and more! We have tried all kinds of topical creams none seem to relief her!

    A:

    At this stage it would be difficult for her to consume capsules. Can she still swallow or take food via the mouth? If not, then it's little that can be done unless herbs will be put through the feeding tube. Now externally, she could try the Dherbs HEALING SKIN OIL. Please read the article â€SKIN DISORDER = BLOOD DISORDERâ€.

    Q: I know you are an herbalist and I have read your articles on relationships, but I really need to discuss an issue with a conscious person like yourself. I have a friend who is a conscious brother, he made it known that he doesn't want to be in a relationship, claims he's to busy, but he is into having a spiritual sexual relationship(releasing energy he says on a spiritual level). My thought is that in order to connect with someone totally on a sexual level they should be a unit to experience this sacred sexual experience he refers to, otherwise to me it seems a very clever why to have sex without the commitment of being in a relationship. I would really appreciate your thoughts.

    A:

    Dudes can be so clever! He sounds like a Taurus! LOL!

    He's using spirituality to justify having sex with you. There's no spirituality with a casual sex partner. This practice is deep and creates serious energetic connections via the chakras. There's no connection without being a unit and having a commitment. My motto is: no sex absent love and commitment (unless both parties agree)! Hope this helps you out!

    Q: I got a question for you, I got a natal chart from you guys and it says my karma is in Virgo, I am a Scorpio. What does that mean, do I have problems with Virgo, do I owe them? What does this mean, my north node is in Virgo, and my south node in Pisces, these three confuse me, not sure what they mean. If you can shed some light, I would appreciate it. Love Peace and Light Brother!

    A:

    Identify the qualities of the sign of Virgo (service, work, health, hygiene, etc.) and this will show you the areas from a past life that you failed and need to work on in this present life. You may need to serve people, work for free (charity) in helping others, and perhaps in the field of health (i.e. hospital or something).

    The North Node also means the past life karma - area you need to work on (which is also Virgo; many times the North Node matches the 12th House sign which deals with karma). The 12th House and North Node are usually the same and mean the same - karma!

    The South Node deals with the things (traits of Pisces) you learned well in the past life. These are strong resources you can use now in this life. Study what Pisces represents and these are the things you mastered in the past life.

    Q: I am writing for advice about a brain tumor. My daughter, 14, was diagnosed two weeks ago with a grade II brain tumor (fibrillary astrocytoma). A neurosurgeon placed a "shunt" in her head a week ago. Speaking with a number of physicians in Atlanta that specialize in pediatric neurology, it seems our options are limited, and we've been directed to St. Jude's Children's Hospital in Memphis, TN, for a 6 week treatment of radiation and chemotherapy (tarceva). We know there are risks, but we seem to have no other choice in the conventional medicine arena. Here are my questions. What holistic approach could we take? The tumor is the size of an orange and is growing around her brain like a vine on a bush. It is also bithalamic, that is, covering both her left and right thalamus. She is an honor student, but we are seeing signs of some erosion i.e. she takes frequent naps, does not seem to know when to take herself to the restroom, and is running fevers. The doctors have her on steroids to help with the swelling of her three recent operations as well as something else. My preference is to try to the holistic approach first, but we don't have a lot of time. What are the time-frames associated with your treatment? I know something of this nature will take some time to take effect. I should mention that the prognosis is not very promising.

    A:

    Don't worry about time, just take a natural course. Chemo and radiation will do the poor child in. This would poison her. But this is you guy's choice here! I would give the child BRAIN TUNER TEA daily (2 cups daily) and DETOX TEA nightly. Stop feeding the tumor by giving the child bad food, i.e. meat, eggs, dairy products, refined grains and starches, etc.

    Q: I am 18 years old and was diagnosed with genital herpes in March 2007. Four months before that till present I have been suffering with a vaginal odor problem. No matter how I shower and clean, after a half an hour my vagina would have this fishy like odor that you could smell through my clothes. When I am on my menstrual the smell is even stronger and embarrassing because no matter what I do I cannot hide the odor. Before my first breakout with herpes I went to the doctor about the smell and my pap smear didn't show any signs of an infection to explain the smell. After being diagnosed with genital herpes I went back to the doctors to find out what I could do about the embarrassing odor. I was even tested for bacterial vagenosis but did not have it. The doctor said the smell could just be symptoms of a break out coming on. They gave me acyclovir pills and sent me home. Not to mention the pills did not help one bit with my breakouts or odor. I don’t know what to do anymore.... I’m tired of locking myself in the house because of my odor and my painful breakouts. Please help....

    A:

    BELOVED, HAVE YOU READ OUR "GENITAL HERPES" ARTICLE YET? IF NOT, YOU SHOULD. I BELIEVE IT WILL OPEN YOUR EYES. DRUGS WILL NEVER HELP YOU! NEVER! THE BODY CANNOT ASSIMILATE THEM. I'D RECOMMEND THAT YOU PERFORM THE FULL BODY DETOX FOLLOWED BY THE ANTI-VIRAL CLEANSE AND REGIMEN. PERFORM THESE TWO FOR STARTERS. BASICALLY, YOU HAVE TO PREPARE FOR A FULL LIFE CHANGE.

    Q: I was reading your article on Astrological Health and I am a Scorpio woman, born on October 31, who does not have a strong sex drive at all. In fact I've never really been into sex at all which has made my partners upset and discouraged at times and has had me thinking that something may be wrong with me. I have even considered seeing a sexual doctor about these issues. You state that the "Scorpio governs the genitalia or sex" and this explains our sex drive but yet I've been sexually active for 7 years and have also never had an orgasm. I was molested from ages 4 to 11 and sometimes I think this has something to do with how I am but I'm just not sure. I would really like to increase my sex drive and be able to orgasm and have considered taking your bunny rabbit formula in order to fix this but now knowing that astrologically I'm supposed to be opposite of how I am (which I've heard before but didn't know the extent until now), I'm beginning to think something is seriously wrong with me. What are your thoughts?

    A:

    Please consider scheduling a consultation so we can get to the root of the issue and help you to unblock your blockages that are preventing you from truly enjoying sex and having an orgasm. Consultations are now half price ($50). There is healing and help for you! You're just missing the knowledge you require.

    Q: What do you think about tarot card readings? Do you think I am to make my life or is it already planned? Can astrology help me know of future, or finances?

    A:

    Tarot cards are a from of divination, and can be very helpful in helping one to discover their life's purpose and path. Your life is partially planned (right hand tells this), and then planned by yourself on the mundane level (left hand). Astrology can help you to learn about future finances only based upon patterns that have been established. If these patterns change, then your finances will change, but you are the cause of this change.
