Even though I know hundreds of other astrologers are writing about Kate Middleton and Prince William, I just can’t resist throwing out my thoughts on the synastry of this oh so beautiful young couple. On the surface this appears to be an exceedingly romantic match up of the gorgeous commoner and the handsome prince, the kind of thing romance novelists have been making tons of money off of for years.
With Sagittarius rising and Neptune in Sagittarius conjoining his Ascendant, Prince William easily projects a dashing, devil-may-care image, however he does have his Sun and Moon conjoined in [...]
Waking up this morning to Venus back in Libra and an email from a reader asking about sextiles and trines in synastry, it seems like an excellent time to take a look at the difference between these two harmonious aspects in synastry vs. in the natal chart.
We find trines between signs in the same element and sextiles between friendly elements, i.e., air signs Gemini and Libra are trine and air sign Gemini is sextile fire sign Leo. In essence this makes a dialogue between those signs pleasant and the ability to find common ground easy.

This subject has been nagging at me seeking expression for several weeks now so I decided to write about it. As most of you know, I have Sun conjunct Chiron in Libra and have been puzzling out relationship issues most of my adult life, and in the process I have become rather good at spotting patterns in both my relationships and others.

I have been musing about the importance of the Moon in synastry and have concluded it is important indeed if the relationship is to last any length of time.

The Moon represents how we handle our feelings and emotions, our little routine habit patterns, the way we feel about home and family and is often largely unconscious in expression. It is next to impossible to make adjustments to behavior patterns if we cannot [...]
While the cardinal t-square doesn’t make any direct hits to my chart, I’m noticing a big surge of energy in general. I’m just hoping this will continue because most of this year has been spent wandering around in a fog, finding the roadblocks by stubbing my toes on them. Nothing like a good dose of pure cardinal energy to clear the sinuses and make it feel like you can BREATHE again!
For those of you who like my synastry posts, I have a new one up on Real Astrologers featuring Anna Paquin and Stephen [...]
