Soulmate Astrology

In our understanding, one of the most influential pointers of special associations occurs when a simple trine in one person's birth or natal chart is efficiently turned into a Grand Trine by another person's planet(s), chiefly when it involves individual planets. For example, in one person's chart, Mars is in the early degrees of Sagittarius and trines the Moon in the early degrees of Aries. A planet in the early degrees of Leo would form a Grand Trine in this native's chart, but doesn't exist. Her partner's Sun fills this pattern, as it is in the early degrees of Leo. This influential association is particularly compelling when it is reciprocal. A singular bond survives between the natives.

Many astrologers consider the Nodes of the Moon a vital axis, and some believe the axis relates to past life influences. Whether or not you agree with philosophies of rebirth, this axis is a profound point in any chart and it deals with significant life lessons. When strong contacts exist with the Nodes of the Moon in synastry, there is a deep compulsion to be together.

In Astrology, one must never miscalculate the authority of the Ascendant. It may be easy to underplay, or even dismiss altogether, the Ascendant's overall role in relational associations when we think of the Ascendant as the 'mask' we wear when we meet others. If the Ascendant is a mere mask, shouldn't it only be important at the very beginning of a relationship? We don't think so. In fact, we feel that the Ascendant has an on-going, essential role in relationships of all kinds, including long-lasting, one-on-one relationships. We have found that interplays between Ascendants can be the source of basic conflict or harmony, on a body level. This is something to be considered in soulmate astrology.

Remember as well that the Ascendant describes the Descendant, which is a highly sensitive relationship point in the natal chart.

A lesser known point in any natal or birth chart is the vertex, which acts almost like a secondary descendant. Strong inter-aspects involving the vertex are found in the synastry of people who feel they are made for each other. There is a fated quality attached to the vertex.

When the sign positions of planets are inter-changed, there is a special compatibility and captivation. For example, if one person has a Sun in Aries and Venus in Taurus, and another person has Sun in Taurus and Venus in Aries, while they will act quite contrarily, this pair will have some stimulating interactions in their association.
 
When one partner's Sun makes an aspect with the other's Moon, there is a natural affinity. The Moon person supports the Sun in quiet but meaningful ways, and the Sun person returns the favour with a confirming energy.
 
When the outer planets (Uranus, Neptune, and Pluto) show powerfully in the synastry of two individuals, there is generally a dominant sense of being uplifted and transformed through contact with each other.

A person's Sun/Moon midpoint  is a point of great sensitivity. In a natal chart, planets that form a hard aspect to this point are highlighted, and tend to reveal a strong sense of destiny and identity. Naturally, when a planet in another person's chart makes a hard aspect to this point in a native's chart, that other person tends to give the native a feeling of purpose and meaning.

Some astrologers are studying the role of asteroids in astrology. Strong connections between the asteroids Eros  and Psyche  in synastry point to a powerful romantic and sexual relationship.

Soulmates always have a powerful composite chart. That is, their composite chart is not scattered-it contains plenty of strong aspects and connections. In soulmate astrology, the Sun and Moon are generally strongly aspected (not necessarily with each other); and similar patterns exist with the other personal planets-Venus, Mercury, and Mars.
