Indicators of Romantic Chemistry...



  • What is it about that special someone that gives him or her the ability to make your knees weak, your heart race, and your brain to turn to mush? According to astrologer Maria DeSimone, it's called chemistry. Astrologically, there are a few clear indicators to help you understand why one person has the power to give you an immediate rush while someone else leaves you feeling flat.

    Synastry is the branch of Astrology concerned with how one person's planets interact with your planets, thus creating a unique synergy of energy flow between the two of you. Astrologically speaking, it's possible to know if someone is attracted to you and whether or not you share a mutual affinity. Of course, astrological indicators of attraction won't tell us much about the potential for love and endurance ... but hey, it's a start. And isn't it fun to explore what your planets might do to the planets of your latest crush?

    What follows is a lowdown of the dominating indicators of chemistry between birth charts. Keep in mind that the conjunction is the granddaddy of all aspects when it comes to chart comparison. With the following aspects, if two planets are in the same sign and in close degree you have a guarantee of sexual attraction! Sextiles and trines in close orb are the next best. Squares and oppositions, while providing the attraction of friction, often also comes with a challenge.

    Here are some aspects to look out for when addressing chemistry in your chart:

    • Sun-Moon: This is the classic indicator not only for attraction, but for compatibility...
    • Sun-Mars (or Mars in the 5th House): When the Sun and Mars are linked, passion is fortified!
    • Sun-Pluto (or Sun in your 8th House): A potent, obsessive, and instant connection is felt where identities seem to merge...
    • Moon-Mars: Emotional arousal is a strong factor in any passionate relationship...
    • Venus-Mars: This is by far the most famous inter-aspect for attraction!
    • Venus-Uranus: This connection is known as the "love at first sight" aspect
    • Venus-Pluto (or Venus in your 8th House): This is an intense attraction that leads to a transcendental love experience...
    • Mars-Ascendant: You have a pure, unadulterated physical attraction to one another!
    • Mars-Pluto (or Mars in your 8th House): Deep erotic urges and physical desire is inspired with this link

    Do you have any of these? Do you find that they hold a certain truth?!
