Be it outright dedication or sheer curiosity, one of the top reasons why people read their horoscope is to gain insight into their love life. Whether you’re single and looking to mingle, newly dating, or attached for the long-haul, everyone secretly (or openly) wants to know what the stars have in store. If you happen to be in a relationship, consider taking your celestial curiosity to the next level by booking a relational astrology reading.
An astrologer will typically offer insight into your relationship by comparing the natal charts of you and your partner on a physical, spiritual, and emotional degree — this is known as synastry.
So, while there are several ways an astrology reading can help shed light on various aspects of your life, here is what a session can teach you about your relationship.
Personality traits: the good, the bad, and the ugly
Even if you’ve mastered one another’s personality traits doesn’t mean there still isn’t more to learn. An astrology reading is a deep dive into your birth chart so you can begin to have a real sense of self-discovery. Learning about your assets, vulnerabilities, and buried gifts are all at the root of every reading. A psychic will point to all three of these areas when giving you constructive advice about all areas of your life. Remember, it’s not a bad thing if you become privy of challenges because your advisor will be able to give you practical advice for whatever life throws your way.
Now, it’s likely that you and your partner are going to compliment and clash in certain areas, but that’s completely normal. In fact, each other’s strengths and weaknesses can actually create a balance. An astrologer can help the two of you work through any roadblocks or areas of challenge so that you can have a more harmonious relationship.
Zodiac sign compatibility: the planets and luminaries
Astrology love compatibility (as referenced by your zodiac sign) is determined by the connections with the planets, to include their angles in both of your charts — but it goes a lot further in an astrology reading because the exact sign degree of the Sun, Moon, Ascendant, Planets, and Houses are taken into consideration. Here is how the fabulous five influence a love and relationship reading:
- The Moon rules emotions and natural response.
- Venus rules love and influences what type of person we are attracted to.
- Mars represents one’s sex drive, to include compatibility.
- The Sun represents the foundation of a person’s personality.
- The Ascendant is how we are perceived on the outside.
It’s important to note that the Sun and Ascendant are key players because they are more apt to be instantly detectable when two people initially connect. It’s not uncommon to be attracted to one’s personality (Sun) and looks (Ascendant) upon meeting for the first time. It’s after getting to know one another that the characteristics of Venus, Mars, and the Moon become more palpable. It’s the combination of all five that determine whether or not a relationship is short-lived or has the potential to go the distance.
Karmic relationships versus a soulmate: be open-minded
Did you ever meet someone and have a strong feeling that they came into your life for a reason? This is because we tend to meet and travel with people from a past life whose goal is to learn and experience a new life in the present. Advisors often consider these types of relationships as karmic. The information you receive is not necessarily romantic, which is why it’s best to consult a psychic for clarity. Soulmates, on the other hand, is essentially your perfect match — or soul. The deep bond you have with this person is emotional, spiritual, and sexual.
Not everyone finds their soulmate because they are willing to settle for Mr./Ms. Right Now versus searching for Mr./Ms. Right. As with determining karmic relationships, a tarot reading can help put you on the right path to finding your soulmate or provide clarity if you think you’ve already found this person. Keep in mind that as with all healthy relationships, a soulmate relationship cannot be rushed or forced. Soulmates are real, but you have to be patient—and being hasty can prompt you to confuse love with lust.
Relationship assistance: the big picture
When taking all of the above into consideration, astrology readings can help a couple’s relationship. In fact, the best thing you can do is to have a reading before a crisis occurs as you’ll be able to constructively work through your differences (from personality to planetary and beyond) in an effort to avoid a huge blowout. You can also gain insight into how cosmic events affect you and your partner so that you can consider how your actions will affect one another based on your astrology love compatibility.
