Synastry chart – the up and down sides of your relationship

Today I encountered someone who asked online for a quick reading for a chart.

I had no idea who the person was so I just said what seemed to be obvious from the chart – that the person had an Aquarius moon on the 2nd house conjunct with Neptune and that this person is probably making money out of art.

I also saw an exact entrance of Jupiter, ruler of this chart, into the 5th house of romance, hobbies and pets so I mentioned this time is probably a time of self development through these areas of life.

It all seemed to be right since the inquirer told me that they were dating this person and would love to have their relationship chart, named Synastry.

since Synastrys are my favorite Astrology practice, I decided to dedicate a post to this subject or field of Astrology and Astrology reading.

a Synastry involves both sides strongest traits as they come to manifestation in a specific relationship. The way programs draw a synastry is easy – they just put two charts one outside the other in a way that the astrologer can read the poinrs or traits of both people and the way they kind of ‘speak’ with each other.

Often times it is very much of a discussion coming to life for me, when reading a synastry chart. the elements actually speak up with each other by different tones and other vocal nuances that can teach me about the relationship itself.

Off course, a synastry chart reading can not be replaced by, only based on, natal chart reading. meaning you are going to use the appropriate tools on your favorite astrology program or website to see the spread of the synastry. after being spread this way, charts have special angles and points that seem to speak to each other louder then others. Those are points where planets conjunct, opposite, square or sextile to each other.

Generally, the more dominant a planet or point is in one’s chart the more weight it has for the synastry calculation. Although, we can have some people ‘doing’ all kind of things to us – make us feel special, or understood, or even karmatically attached somehow. Usually, those connections will be manifested in the synastry and its attachment points.

In the picture you can see circled in black are the conjunctions, yellow – the sextile and pink – square.

usually all angles are meaningful (imagine them not talking to each other at all) but while sextiles are fluent positive energy and conjunctions are intense energy, squares tend to be more challenging to deal with though not necessarily difficult or fatalistically destructive for a relationship. having Saturn squaring someone’s Venus, sun or moon is better then…. right, not having them communicating at all.

And one last thing about synastries – try, for practice, having your synastry with someone that you like artistically such as a novelist or a painter. usually you will find some interesting connections….


Planets and signs in natal 4th house

In Astrology we search for significant telltales on a natal chart. The 4th house is where we find clues for father figure, father background and family background. There we an see indication for immigration, education, trauma and so on events and circumstances that were and are involved with the father and the family.

A populated 4th house increases the chances of patriotic activity and an emphasized 11th house shows tribal involvement (community) in one’s life.

for example:

well aspected and strong moon on the 4th house may show a lineage of strong women.

Neptune on the 4th house shows a religious background

Pluto in this position talks about immigration or some other physical transformation that happened to family or father

As for signs of the 4th they don’t tell much but the ruler of 4th house can give us more details about one’s brought up and family background.

Astrology of covid-19: part 2

Having discussed generally the constellation that triggered the current pandemic and after trying to analyse thebasics of astrology of covid 19 in the first part, I now move on to the speciffic areas of affect this pandemic carries due to the speciffic envolvement of certain planets in certain signs.

A little longer then a year ago, on the end of 2019, Saturn, the great tutor, was meeting Pluto in Capricorn. This meeting (on this 45 years apart ongoing schedule) was this time (remember the old Ants and their very slow language in Lord of the Rings? think this way) about revolutions and restrictions in governmental patterns and constructions. Saturn kept moving happily (or more like, earnestly) toward Uranus: another gigantic with plans of its own, sitting meanwhile in Taurus after just entering there. Saturn and Uranus first intense interaction happened while Saturn was forming a direct square from the 3rd degree of Aquarius to Saturn, at about half of the time spoken here (saying, on the peak months of this Covid-19 Pandemic, טפו טפו טפו, about 8 months ago on the summer of 2020) . As the great tutor not only personally but also to humanity, this form was an intense one because these two unfriendly but somehow, more “natural” planets, Saturn and Pluto, had plans of forcing some form structures over humanity (remember? revolutions and restrictions in governmental patterns and constructions) , as only the mediator of the gigantic planets, Uranus in Taurus and Pluto in Capricorn, Saturn had no choice but to take upon himself yet another task or mission (as Capricorns always do or people with dominant Saturn/Capricorn on their personal chart) : doing whatever needed and exactly as set with Pluto first, but with the new Uranus in Taurus crazy plans. Sorry for all Uranian fans out there, I myself an Aquarius moon and hell I know How fierce Uranus can be (personally I have it on my 8th house, meaning a lot to me). but here in Taurus Uranus plays with us the wicked game of give me some of your XYZ and get some revolution in return. this time, the negotiation is over the Taurus concerns. Taurus rules humanity assets: our physicals stamina, our wheat, breads and agriculture, as well as comforts, habits and sense of control over our surrounding. Taurus is the comforts and practicality of life. It is slow and steady. In the human body Taurus is the neck and throat. It also cares about our money but having Uranus there can not speak about cash alone. it speaks about the means of the making and handling it. Taurus is also an Earth Fixed sign. It is ruled by Venus / Earth. All these and other Taurus related areas were expected to be heated by the nature of this combination, Uranus in Taurus. Uranus in Taurus plans for us (here to stay for about 15 years and early born Taurus suns, as well as others with Taurus moons or Taurus rising on their Personal Chart, have started already feeling its affect personaly) – begins with the unique, lets say, Uranian sense of humor. Imagine maybe Who framed Roger rabbit or this kind of very slapstic no-red-lines sense of humor. yes, with Uranus in Taurus the price is not funny for us as it is for Uranus. This planet has been moving 2 degrees from the 2nd to the 4th during this year of covid-19. It entered while we were mostly busy with the Pluto in Capricorn governmental issues (still going on off course) and very typically it hit us not when expected (as is with Uranus) and waited to hit his show later then expected (Like, Uranus spent one whole year out of fifteen on waiting just to make a joke, before hitting us with a crazy lethal virus. Ha ha, isn’t that funny. Not)

Im not blaming Uranus. As said on the first Astrology of covid 19 article there are other heavy planets and the actual Pluto and Saturn meeting was the focus of our attention. Pluto being in Capricorn – yes, after squaring with Uranus in Aries for some time (think back 2014-2016), and after conjuncting with exessive Jupiter – is by itself a reasonable position for this pandemic as a governmentally-spread economical and structural game-changer.


Family Astrology

There are quite few common astrological combinations that are often found within families. They form an astrological structure as well as special relations between the family members. These family astrological combinations usually hold a karmatic meaning.

A ruling planet –

All family member will have, in this constelation, the same planet as a ruling or dominant planet in their charts. For example, an uranian family may have an aquarius dad, a mom with uranus as the ruling planet of her chart, one child with uranus on 1st house and one child with aquarius moon. The meaning is that this family was blessed with an uranian energy – they will be freedom loving people, keen to the new, considered somewhat weird as a family. Maybe they will have an unusual way of living, habits or relationships.

same sign kids –

Two, three or more children with same sun sign. The sunsign could be a telltale for the whole family energy: for example, taurus kids will indicate a country life and a tendency for foods: this family likes going on picnics, make food and eat, and induldge in the good life.

parent’s sun = child’s moon –

In this case, child will “take on” one of the parents’ sun sign and “embrace” it as his own moon sign. This kind of energy usually indicates a special connection between this parent and that child. Even if not shown, they may have a very strong understanding of each other and expresses each of other’s needs (unless other planets are opposing each other)

6-8 relationships –

With this constellation, a child’s sun sign would be placed on the 6th or 8th house from their parents sun sign. For example: a Capricorn parent with a Leo child or with a Gemini child. A Cancer parent with a Saggitarius or Aquarius child. And so on. This one considers to be a karmatic relationship, too: it usually forms a relationship in which both sides learn an important lesson about themselves thanks to the other.
