Relationships | 6 July 20164 Charts for Relationship Astrology Share article facebook twitter google pinterest It can be so hard to know if someone is a good romantic match for you. Instead of agonizing about it, why not consult the celestial bodies? In Sarah Bartlett’s Relationship Astrology: The Beginner’s Guide to Charting and Predicting Love, Romance, Chemistry, and Compatibility, you will be guided through the process of seeing how planetary movements can predict compatibility, longevity and commitment in a relationship. To get you started on the path toward an astrologically-sound relationship, here are 4 astrology charts and how to read them. Ascendant/Descendant Axis The angles of the birth chart show where and how we interact with the apparent outside world. The Ascendant and Descendant show what we “see” and what we “get” respectively, particularly regarding love relationships. The Aspects The most important aspects for relationship astrology are the opposition (180 degrees), the square, (90 degrees), the trine (120 degrees) and the conjunction, or same sign planetary position. “Out of Sign” Trine Aspect This “out-of-sign” trine aspect shows that even though the moon in Aries is 90 degrees (a square) away from the moon in Cancer and not compatible by sign, the exact degree of the moon at 1 degree Aries is actually almost 120 degrees (a trine) away from the moon at 29 degrees of Cancer and therefore they are compatible by degree. Elements of the Zodiac By counting round the signs of the zodiac you can generally find out which signs are compatible and which aren’t. So starting with Aries, count the next sign in a counterclockwise direction, Taurus, as one, then Gemini as two and Cancer as three, which is the tense 90-degree aspect.
