Astrology and Relationships (part 3)
- Relationships can be assessed either by synastry analysis, or in terms of the composite chart, the soul connection.
- Synastry analysis, or chart comparison, is concerned with the actual links between two individual birth charts. This method reveals the range of ways, whether at the physical and sensual, emotional and feeling, mental and intellectual, or spiritual and soul levels, that two people are likely to interact with each other.
Synastry provides information about how prospective and existing partners can be expected to interact emotionally, mentally, sexually, and spiritually. This knowledge can be so helpful in understanding and learning to tolerate the inevitable differences in the way people in a relationship behave towards each other and towards the world at large. In turn, this helps partners to be more compassionate toward each other, and to adopt more realistic expectations of the relationship. More on Synastry.
- Composite, or mid-point charts, are constructed by the melding of two or more individual charts. The result is a chart of the actual relationship itself, which we call the Soul Connection.
A composite Soul Connection chart is ideal if you are already in a relationship with a romantic or marriage partner. It reveals the relationship's actual nature and purpose, and how the couple responds to the world. The composite is a representation of what each party to the relationship brings out and stimulates (for better or worse) in the other.
Both approaches can be applied to any important relationship. A friendship, a business partnership, the relationship with a child, a sibling, even a pet - all can be explained with astrological analysis. The chief difference between the two methods mentioned is that a composite chart can be constructed for any number of partners, whereas synastry analysis is restricted to two partners at a time.
