Frequently asked questions
Short Reports > Partner
are there contradictory interpretations of my relationship?
The free horoscopes do not contain a synthesis, but interpret each individual factor in your relationship horoscope. Naturally there are some contradictions - no relationship is free of them. Humans are multi-layered and contradictory, and so are relationships. This doesn't mean they are right or wrong, good or bad, they are just complex.
If you would like an in-depth analysis (and synthesis) of your relationship, please order Liz Greene's "Relationship Horoscope" or the "Horoscope for Two" by Mona Riegger, both of them are high quality AstroIntelligence reports.
- In the data sheet
of the Short Report Partner, the last set of data states an Ascendant which
is completely different to either of the two natal horoscopes. Is that
a calculation error?
No, it isn't. The final set of data refers to the composite chart of the two natal charts. It is an abstract chart which reflects the relationship between two people as a third entity. For each planet the midpoint of both natal charts is calculated, these are then shown as a chart drawing. Composite charts are computed constellations, they do not represent a real astronomical situation.
The composite Ascendant can be calculated in two different ways:
a) Either one can use the latitude of a place of reference, or
b) one can use the midpoint of both Ascendants.
For more information on the Composite Chart, please read Liz Greene's article on the subject.
- Why don't you
offer a partner matching service based on astrological compatibility?
Because we don't think it makes sense to match people just by comparing their charts. What brings and keeps people together in relationships is a very complex matter. We are all very different, and have very different needs in relationships, and different capacities to bring into relationships. We also carry our past experiences, from the family background and from our previous relationships as baggage into each new one.
These complexities cannot be known or taken into account in an astrological partner reading. Astrology can be very helpful in understanding an existing relationship between two particular individuals. But this requires an individual analysis of each relationship case, based on the complete birth data of the two partners.
If a relationship is not actually lived, but only considered as a 'potential', and if the detailed birth data (including birth time) of the partners are not known, the possibilities of serious astrological analysis are very much reduced.
