Of all the branches of astrology, it is probably "synastry" – the technique of comparing the birth charts of two or more persons – that most fascinates those who practice astrology today. This is the first book to deal thoroughly with the basic purpose and techniques of chart comparison in clear, contemporary terms. Going beyond the simplistic popular methods which compare only sun signs, Michael Meyer's humanistic approach to synastry offers a responsible tool for understanding the mutually constructive aspects of any relationship. The Astrology of Relationship introduces the concept of "relationship" with a brief overview of its place in traditional astrological practice and its relation to certain Eastern Philosophical concepts. Explaining the significance of planets, houses and signs in determining personal compatibility, Meyer offers a step-by-step technique for chart comparison, including full instructions for casting and interpreting zodiacal contact, house contact, and composite charts. To demonstrate the methods described, the book concludes with synastric analyses of three important relationships in history: Sigmund Freud and Carl Jung; George Sand and Frederic Chopin; and founders of the Theosophical Society, Madame Blavatsky and Henry Olcott. Michael R. Meyer is the author of A Handbook for the Humanistic Astrologer and The Astrology of Change: Horary Astrology and its Humanistic Applications.

Synastry puts relationships under the cosmic microscope of astrology—offering an insightful perspective on the dynamics that drive all personal interactions. Rod Suskin, the author of "Cycles of Life, " blends traditional methods with modern techniques in this introduction to synastry. His step-by-step approach begins with interpreting an individual's birth chart to pinpoint relationship needs and behaviors. Next, you'll learn chart comparison techniques—involving the elements, inter-chart aspects, planets in aspect, the fifth house, dignities, and other astrological factors—to determine the compatibility and longevity of a relationship. "Synastry" will help you explore many critical issues that affect relationships: communication habits, values, feelings of self-worth, sex drive, life goals, attitudes toward money and children, karma, and more. For the professional astrologer, there is also advice for conducting client consultations with sensitivity and objectivity.
Relationship astrology - synastry - is not just an exploration of compatibility and possibility; it calls us to honour the mystery and soul of our attachments - not for what we want them to be, but for how they truly are. By its very nature, relationship is inevitable. Embedded in every human being is an instinct to respond and attach, to embrace the desire and urge to relate. As an integral human pattern, relationship is an aspect of every individual's future, shaped by the familial, ancestral and cultural atmosphere of the times in which they live; consequently, relationship is a central motif woven into each individual horoscope. When two souls form a relationship with one another, so do their horoscopes. The quest to understand the heart of relationship inspires this volume. From the Moment We Met offers a guide through the labyrinth of astrological symbols and images towards a clearer understanding and acceptance of your adult relationships.
Our connections with other people are perhaps the most basic fact of life, and yet they can be very complicated. The astrology of relationships, including such links as love and marriage, friendship, family ties and business associations, is the subject of this most thorough and detailed guide. It covers attraction, endurability and mental agreement as well as the position of Saturn. From interchart aspects to cross-chart house connections, all the major tricks of the synastry trade are explained in this book. Lois Haines Sargent's well written, well read volume has been a best sellar ever since its first printing in 1958.
The sages of ancient India developed the astrological practice of Jyotisha as a karma-measuring apparatus to indicate where your karmas will permit ideals to be shared between you and those with whom you relate. Jyotisha can help restructure relationship dynamics by providing perspectives on when and how your relationships and their difficulties are likely to arise and dissipate. Light on Relationships is currently the only book that makes relationship analysis accessible to the modern student of Indian astrology. If you want to learn how to use this system for chart comparison, this book gives you the complete details. The authors cover the techniques of synastry and explore all the facets of what makes a relationship work--or not--including personal karma and goals, family influences, the Ayurvedic constitution or dosha of each individual, and how these elements are revealed. In an entertaining and informative way, the authors explain how the individual chart will reveal your inborn ability to relate. They explain the traditional ten Porutthams, which evaluate a couple's sukha (external and internal happiness), and explore superstitious concepts, such as Vishna Kanya (literally, "poison maiden"), or Kuja Dosha ("The Blemish of Mars"). Included are details on determining the most auspicious times for a wedding. This approach to synastry has been developed over years of experimentation. The authors blend the principles of synastry with other techniques culled from Jyotisha's classical canon. Some of the less conventional techniques presented come from ancient oral traditions never before incorporated into the classical works. Other methods come from the authors' mentors; and some have been developed from processes validated over many years of their experience. The authors build on some of the best principles of the astrological traditions of both West and East, hoping to bring the two camps closer together.
