What are the best aspects in Astrology that determine a successful relationship

As I was browsing the net the other day, I came across a very interesting article on synastry. I don’t have too much knowledge on that part of astrology, as I normally use the services of a professional astrologer when I want to check my aspects with someone. However, this article caught my attention and made me do a bit of research on some of the most exciting aspects in astrology.

For me, the most important indicators in anyone’s chart are the Sun, the Moon, and the Ascendant. Therefore, the first thing to look out for is the Sun¬†and Moon signs and how they relate to each other in your synastry chart. The best variant is the conjunction- sun_moonmeaning the Sun and Moon to be positioned in the same sign (between 0¬į and 3¬į of each other), especially if it’s the man’s Sun and the woman’s Moon. This is one of the aspects that also determines a successful marriage, so it’s really good if you have it with your partner or love interest. Trine (120¬į with up to 4¬į orb)¬†and sextile (60¬į with an orb of up to 2¬į-3¬į)¬†are also good, but the conjunction here is the most powerful. A good aspect between the Sun and the Ascendant and/or the Moon and the Ascendant are also very positive and give a long-lasting and very harmonious relationship.

The second most important aspect, in my opinion, is the Mars/Venus compatibility. Any of the major aspects here is quite positive- both the harmonious (conjunction, sextile, trine) and the challenging (square, opposition) ones. The conjunction or opposition give a lot of attraction and are an indicator of a very passionate relationship, especially if it’s the man’s Mars with the woman’s Venus sign. Here, I have to mention that the aspect between the two partners’ Venus’ as well as Mars’ signs is also important. A conjunction between your Venus signs is an indicator of a long-lasting and harmonious relationship, as both partners tend to express love and affection in the same way. A conjunction between your Mars signs is a very hot aspect as it gives a lot of passion and excellent sexual compatibility.

Venus in any aspect (both harmonious and challenging) to Pluto indicates for very intense and deep feelings. In the case of Mars and Pluto, though, if the aspect is hard, this could add violence to the relationship. Similarly, an aspect between the Moon and Pluto and the Ascendant and Pluto brings on a lot of physical and emotional attraction as well as obsessiveness between the partners.

The ascendant in conjunction to Venus, Mars or Pluto, a conjunction between the Moon and Mars and between the Moon and Pluto are three aspects that indicate for a very passionate and sexual relationship that adds a pinch of psychological intensity to it.

Jupiter is the planet of luck! Any positive aspects between Jupiter and the Sun, Moon, Ascendant, Venus or Mars brings a lot of harmony to the relationship. Any of those aspects involves a lot of (positive) energy exchange between the partners. For instance, Jupiter in conjunction to the Ascendant means you and your partner are natural friends. Mars in conjunction to Jupiter is a very lucky aspect and makes the couple very outgoing and positive and brings on friendly competition between the two partners. A positive aspect between Jupiter and the Sun or the Moon brings friendship along with the romantic relationship. The two partners are very supportive of each other and feel very lucky to be together.

Other quite positive aspects are any harmonious aspects between the Sun and Venus (especially the conjunction), which create a sense of harmony where the individuals find a lot to like in each other Рand between Neptune and the Moon, where an intuitive communication and mutual understanding between the individuals is very common (e.g. saying the same words at the same time). Also, a positive aspect between the Ascendant and Mars gives a lot of mutual attraction to each other.

The above are just some of the best (in my opinion) aspects in a synastry chart, but they are also quite general. There are many other elements involved such as house positions, personal planets, asteroids etc. This article is to give you but a general idea if you and your partner or love interest have enough basis to build upon your relationship.

Nine Astonishing Places on Earth

Nature is an incredible thing. It’s so beautiful, so powerful, so divine. It gives life, it takes life. Unfortunately, nowadays we, people don’t¬†recognise the importance of nature in our lives. Moreover, we don’t respect it, we abuse its resources and what is sadder, we destroy it.

In today’s post, I decided to put together a list of some of the most astonishing places on Earth and show the beauty of our planet in all its glory.

Erta Ale, Ethiopia

Erta¬†Ale is one of the most beautiful volcanoes in the world and also one of the hottest places on earth. Known as the ‘smoking mountain‘ and also the ‘gateway to hell‘, Erta Ale is one of the last constantly active volcanoes. It’s quite special for the fact it¬†is a very rare combination of volcanoes and lava lakes.

Waitomo, Glow Worm Cave, New Zealand

The name Waitomo comes from two MńĀori¬†words –¬†wai, water and tomo, hole or shaft. The beautiful glow in the cave comes from the glow worms known as Arachnocampa luminosa,¬†living inside the cave.

The Zhangye Danxia landform area is known as ‘the eye candy of Zhangye‘. No wonder where this nickname is coming from;¬†Zhangye Danxia is a unique combination of different colours,¬†which is so rare it almost seems magical.

According to China Highlights,¬†Zhangye ‘s Danxia was formed by:

“the erosion of red sandstone, forming isolated peaks and steep stratified outcrops. Its special geological structure, combined with long-term desert conditions , freeze-thaw peeling, and wind and water erosion gave rise to its present appearance.”

Playa del Amor, also known as the Hidden beach, is part of the Marieta Islands, located near the coast of Mexico. The big hole in the surface, reveals a hidden beach with crystal water and golden sands, looking straight to the cloudless sky.

The Marieta Islands have never been inhibited, which is making them an ideal destination for relaxing and getting in touch with Nature.

Trolltunga in Norway

Trolltunga- this magnificent rocky ledge has always reminded me of Lion King (remember when Rafiki lifted little Simba above his head and presented him to the animal kingdom as the heir to the Lion throne). The beauty of the landscape is magnificent and breathtaking, showing Nature in all its glory.

No doubt, some of you have seen pictures of this incredible sight from Vaadhoo Island in the Maldives. At night, the beach looks like a mirror that reflects the star sky, also known as the sea of stars. This mesmerizing view is the work of a rare species of phytoplankton known as dinoflagellates.

Vaadhoo only has around 550 inhabitants.

A fiord is defined as a u-shaped glacier-carved valley which has been flooded by the sea.There are 14 fiords that form the south-west corner of the South Island. According to a Maori folk tale, the fiords were created by a giant stonemason called Tute Rakiwhanoa, who hued out the steep sided valleys with his adzes. Rudyard Kipling calls the park the 8th wonder of the world.
