Relational astrology is an application of astrology which is meant to establish the relational nature formed between two signs through comparing the astrologic charts of the respective signs.
An astrologist may sketch a person’s life schedule, the psychological profile and the mental potential by studying an astrologic chart. This way, relational astrology provides us with the exact aspects which connect us to another person and the existing relational compatibility. These comparative studies proved to be useful to all those interested of their relationship with their close ones, from young women who wish to know if their life partners are the suitable ones, to parents interested in developing a close relationship with their children. Relational astrology is a field that, apparently, researches every interpersonal relationship.
The most well-known relational analysis methods are the Synastry Chart, the Composite Chart and the Davison Chart. The most popular relational astrologic study method is the Synastry. Synasty is realized between two people, through the overlapping of the two charts on the same sing circle. This way, different aspects may be observed from the overlapping, such as: the way the planets correlate in the chart of one of the person with the chart of the other one, as well as the positions of the planets in each others’ houses. The nature of these aspects offer precious information of the relational characteristics between the two people and it offers reference points in order to establish certain boundaries or remove them. Synastry explains the compatibility between signs.
There are 12 signs: Aries (21 March – 20 April), Taurus (21 April – 21 May), Gemini (22 May – 21 June), Cancer (22 June – 21 July), Leo (23 July – 22 August), Virgo (22 August – 21 September), Libra (22 September – 22 October), Scorpio (23 October – 21 November), Sagittarius (22 November – 20 December), Capricorn (21 December – 19 January), Aquarius (20 January – 18 February) and Pisces (19 February – 20 March) categorized in Fire signs (Aries, Leo and Sagittarius), Water signs (Cancer, Scorpio and Pisces), Earth signs (Taurus, Virgo and Capricorn) and Air signs (Gemini, Libra and Aquarius). It is a well-known fact that the signs of the same category are compatible amongst each other, but the compatibility amongst signs of different category is not the same. For instance, there is a strong compatibility between Leo and Sagittarius because they are passionate people who like to live and love with flames. A Fire-Fire couple has high chances to succeed according to the complementary zodiac characteristics between these signs.
It should however be remembered that the popular compatibility between signs is a correct theoretic concept, but it refers to signs as a general vibe and not to all the natives of that sign. In order to determine the compatibility between two individuals it is recommendable to realize a detailed study on the natal themes through relational astrological methods.
We proceed to analyze the Synastry Chart of a couple formed of a Leo woman and a Sagittarius man. The exact day and hour of birth are necessary for such a chart. Without the correct data, the chart cannot be correctly interpreted.
Supposing that the Leo woman was born on the 5th of August 1988 at 5:00 in a city and the man was born on the 8th of December 1984 at 10:00 in another city if we overlap the natal astrologic charts, we find out that the Sagittarius man owns the first planet and the Leo woman owns the second planet. The Sun by trigon with the Sun means that many of the values of the two signs are identical and that there is understanding, enthusiasm and energy in their relationship.
