Astrology for relationships

 In Self Improvement::Happiness

Valentine’s Day approaches, so I decided I’d write an article regarding couples astrology. Astrology is constantly being asked about love and marriage. So I thought I would share with you some key aspects of a healthy couple.

Here are some results from a little study I did with friends. Most of the charts I looked at were romantic couples, but I also observed some platonic friend charts as well. The results were very close.

Editor’s note. You will see both positive aspects and some negative aspects throughout this article. Positive aspects include conjunction (unless you need to specify), trine, conjunction, as well as sextile. Negative aspects include squares, and oppositions (unless you need to specify). This explanation is provided for your convenience. Trine refers to the 120-degree separation of two planets. Conjunction means that the two planets have the same degree for a sign. This can bring comfort and ease. Sextile is the 60-degree separation of two planets, which represents the elemental aspect of opportunity. Square indicates that two planets lie 90 degrees apart, causing tension, and challenges. Opposite means that two worlds lie 180 degrees apart, and is completely opposite.

Sun/Moon/Ascendant aspects:

Relationships are always more successful if there is a Sun/Moon/Ascendant aspect. This creates a sense of common energy and a sense of like-mindedness in the relationship. It is a great way to create a positive relationship. Both personalities are similar so they can blend well and enjoy one another’s company. Conjunctions may have mixed results. However, I find them to be the most beneficial when the Sun/Moon/Ascendant is involved.

Squares or oppositions between any of these two points, however, can bring significant differences and difficulties that the couple will have to work through. The differences can be in personality (Sun/Ascendant), but there will still be differences with the square aspect and the opposition.

Venus/Moon Aspects

Venus and the Moon are two very important personal planets and they relate to how we interact with others. Venus is a social world, while the Moon influences our emotional reactions. Both planets can be combined well when they are positive. Positive aspects all do well with the Moon and Venus, and many loving couples have them in their charts. The couple will be gentle and loving, as they both possess gentle energy.

While they may indicate some attraction, negative aspects between Venus and the Moon are more indicative of distaste for one another’s behavior. While the couple may be attracted to each other, they are imbalanced in the way they handle each other’s emotions.

Mercury Aspects

Mercury is a planet few people think about when thinking of relationships. But, without clear communication, how can a couple succeed? Positive aspects between one person’s Mercury and another’s Mercury indicate easy communication. The couple is easily able to understand each other in the case of a positive Mercury aspect.

With hard or negative aspects between two people’s Mercury placements, communication is much more difficult. Mercury squares and oppositions can make it difficult to understand each other’s intentions and arguments are more common due to misinterpretations or misunderstandings. Although it is not a clear indicator of a breakup, this can make the relationship more turbulent.

Venus and Mars Aspects

Physical chemistry can be established when a couple is positive in Venus/Mars. These are the passionate couples who will give their all to one another. These couples are able easily to be intimate with each other because their physical needs match up. Venus can give Mars exactly what it wants and the two planets are very attracted.

Even couples with a square or opposition between one person’s Mars and the other’s Venus have great chemistry. It might be a more difficult match than it looks, but Mars and Venus aspects can make for a wonderful couple, provided that there are other strong positive qualities.

Jupiter Aspects

With Jupiter, you don’t want a whole lot of aspects, as Jupiter can bring overindulgence to the relationship, but it can also bring joy and optimism. Jupiter should have enough aspects with their personal planets to make the couple feel happy together, but not too many. Jupiter aspects can be a positive influence on a couple, making them more generous with each other and generally more positive.

Jupiter squares and oppositions make it difficult. The couple might buy each other gifts constantly, depleting their finances, or splurge on getaways and whatever makes them happy. The Jupiter partner will be the impulse spender.

Saturn Aspects

Saturn aspects can bring a healthy dose of reality to relationships. The same way that relationships require enthusiasm and optimism, they also require practicality. Saturn also provides a bit of an “anchor” to the relationship, especially with positive aspects. These aspects help maintain a stable relationship through hard times.

Saturn’s negative qualities can be more difficult to handle but are not impossible. Saturn can be paired with Venus or the Moon to make it easier for them to work together in opposition or square. However, Saturn may just be too harsh about the person they are judging.

Uranus Aspects:

Uranus can bring chaos and instability to any object it touches. This can lead to a disruption in relationships and could be an exciting thing, but also a problem for those who seek more peace and quiet. With the trines, textiles, and sometimes conjunctions, Uranus can bring some welcome variety and excitement, but in the case of squares and oppositions, it may be too much for one or both partners involved.

Concluding my research, I found that successful relationships have a good balance of the above aspects in their synastry charts. I found that the relationships that had difficulties were those with more negative aspects or planets. On the other hand, the relationships that flourished had strong trines, fabrics, and connections between more positive planets. It is essential to balance, but it can be difficult for couples to manage too many things. It doesn’t matter what the problems are, it matters that you try to find the positive in every relationship.
