Synastry – the astrology of relationships

Where are your planets in relation to another person’s chart?

When you overlay your chart onto the chart of another person, for example your partner, children, colleagues, you can gain particular insight into how you affect that person and what areas of their life you are likely to be most actively involved in.

Looking at the planets and their aspects (planets in relation to each other) and the interaction between the two birth charts, we can learn a lot about how two people in a relationship interact and what kind of impact they can have on one another.

This synastry describes the areas of life in which the interaction is concentrated, and how each person views the other in more specific terms.

As well as chart comparison, there is the composite chart, which is derived by determining the mathematical midpoints between each person’s planets and points, to create an entirely new chart altogether— the chart of a relationship.

Basic relationship dynamics can be seen in the composite chart and, as relationships are not static, their development in time can be indicated by this chart and give a better understanding of the evolvement of the relationship.
