What is a Synastry Reading?

A very special relationship reading…

By: Craig Grant

The Fine Art of Synastry

One of the first books on astrology I ever bought, as a teen-ager, was from a second hand bookstore in Great Falls, Montana. It was a thin booklet with a yellow cover and very simple typography that said, HOW TO HANDLE YOUR HUMAN RELATIONS by Lois Haines Sargent. It was published in 1958 by the American Federation of Astrologers in Tempe, Arizona. I’ve never seen it anywhere since. It was in that yellow booklet that I first came across the word, ‘synastry’.

Synastry is the study of cosmic compatibility between two or more charts, be it romantic, friendly, business or whatever. In certain parts of India, they use synastry to decide who marries who at a very early age. One of my clients in New Delhi was married in this fashion. Her husband’s sun is conjunct her moon, ie on the same degree. And her sun is conjunct her husband’s moon. She claims to be the happiest married woman in the world.

It was Ms. Sargent’s book that I came across the concept of rulers of houses, specifically the house of marriage. (I had a feeling that possessing this information might come in handy in the near future, when meeting women took on added importance…. and I was right.) It took some research but I eventually found out that the ruler of my house of marriage was Jupiter, because I had Sagittarius on the cusp of my seventh house of marriage and Jupiter rules Sagittarius. Sagittarius, of course, rules foreign countries and spiritual endeavors. The most important woman in my life so far has been a Quaker Brit.

According to Ms. Sargent, the most important thing in synastry is to have someone’s 7th house ruler close to either your 1st house cusp, aka ascendant, or your 7th house cusp, aka descendant. Only after that should the astrologer discern whether or not there’s contact between the sun and moon, the classic masculine and feminine cosmic entities, and Mars and Venus, the sexual and romantic components of any loving relationship, respectively. And then, of course, he has to look at the nodes of the moon, to see if there’s a Kharmic connection, and then you look at the progressed charts, and the solar arc charts and where the asteroid Amor is lurking in either chart, and then you look to see where the Part of Passion and the Part of Marriage is, and then, of course, you have to look at what transits are occurring in the near future to all of the above……
