In this complete, step-by-step guide to determining astrological compatibility between two people, the author reveals insights into love relationships as well as connections that are often overlooked in other astrology books such as friendships, working relationships, and parent-child relationships. By comparing the charts of ordinary as well as famous couples, The Astrology of Whole Relationships delves deeply into emotional, intellectual, and sexual compatibility, how karma determines planetary positions, and important indicators of a soul mate connection between two people.
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.

The Synatry of Indian Astrology
Author: Hart Defouw,Robert E. Svoboda
Pubpsher: Weiser Books
Category: Body, Mind & Spirit
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.
Erin Sullivan's latest book is a breakthrough both in astrology and psychology. The Astrology of Family Dynamics makes for gripping reading and shows us that astrology is the only system that demonstrates the complexities of the family as an organicwhole, the family's place in the collective, and the role an individual plays in carrying on the ancestral line. Sullivan writes with compassion and accuracy, weaving together various methods of analyzing and working with individuals and their families.
The scientific, historic, and popular basis behind the ancient art of astrology is explored in this comprehensive reference. The guide also includes a table of astrological glyphs and abbreviations, a section on casting a chart, and a chapter that explains and interprets every planet in every house and sign.

Wisdom is Women's Gift to the World. In the many cultural stories that speak about the changing of the ages, it is always Feminine Spirit which brings about the transition to new life, for Feminine Spirit knows the rhythms of life, death, and rebirth and is the "opener of the way." In times of cultural transformation, it is also our right-brain, feminine consciousness that is our best guide, for it opens us to the creative imagination, the realm of possibility. The return of the Goddess awakens the transformative energy that births the changing of the ages. In the western story of worldwide spiritual transformation, there is a powerful image of Cosmic Woman, an image of the archetypal Feminine Spirit who transforms and gives birth to this new age. And her archetypal image gives us instructions for opening to and incarnating wisdom. This image of the awakening Feminine Spirit is an image of the Conscious Woman: a woman, clothed with the sun, standing on the moon, crowned with stars, who is in labor, giving birth to a savior. In earlier times and different traditions, this archetypal image was understood as Lady Wisdom. Today I feel this Goddess image of conscious woman can be incarnated by women everywhere. This woman clothed with the sun is Lady Wisdom, who calls all women to become her daughters. "I love Cathy's insights into fairy tales, mythology, dreams, astrological energies, and archetypes. She makes sense of how our lives are impacted by these complex yet very beautiful elements, making them accessible and keeping them profound. Her wisdom can only enhance anyone lucky enough to have crossed her path." --Alix Toland, Artist & Creator of Color-Scope: An Astrological Mandala
