Beyond Sun Signs
In this article - we're going to journey just a teeny tiny bit beyond
Sun Sign comparisons and talk about astrological romantic attraction.
If you've read my articles on Sun Sign comparisons and compatibility,
then you were most likely surprised to learn that Sun Sign comparisons
only speak about how easily two people can potentially get along with
each other without driving one another nuts. They speak very little
it's time that you get your feet just ever so slightly wet with the
astrological technique called "Synastry." Synastry is just
a fancy smancy word for the comparison of two birth charts for purposes
of determining astrological compatibility.
shucks... don't get scared and run off! What I'm about to discuss is
something that (with a little effort) virtually anyone can do.
In astrology, the birth positions of all the various planets in our
solar system play their own unique symbolic roles as messengers and
ambassadors of the universe...
fact - there are two luminaries (the Sun and the Moon), eight planets
(Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune, and Pluto),
twelve signs, twelve houses (and much more) which go into making up
our unique birth charts...
generally speaking… two of the most important points to pay close
attention to in any astrological chart reading are:
Two Most Important Characters
This overriding importance of the Sun and Ascendant holds true when
interpreting birth charts - and it holds equally true when performing
synastry comparisons between the birth charts of two people. In a nutshell…
the Sun reflects where we're going, and the Ascendant explains how we're
going to get there.
simple Zodiac Sign comparisons between the Sun and the Ascendant is
something virtually anyone can do without the aid and/or expertise of
an astrologer (and without getting too confused and/or lost).
But in order to make these simple comparisons, you must have calculated
birth charts for both of the people you wish to compare. At the bottom
of the next page, I've provided a link that discusses where you can
get an accurate and free online birth chart calculated. A birth chart
is based on your month, day, and year of birth (i.e. 2/19/56). For
an accurately calculated Ascendant Sign, you must also know the exact
time of birth (i.e. 8:09 am, 7:34 pm, 3:45 am) and the geographical
location of your birth (i.e. the city, town, village, hut).
As mentioned, cross Sun Sign comparisons don't speak much about potential
romantic attraction and/or "falling in love." But start adding
in cross Sign comparisons between the Sun and Ascendant - and then we're
beginning to touch on those all important issues that are so near and
dear to our hearts.
