Vedic astrologers may be interested in the "Same Planet" chart
A. Look only at the sign that each planet is in (for example, the Sun
in my chart and the Sun in your chart).
B. See what angle is formed.
C. Interpret according to the information below.
Meaning of Aspects
A. Opposition (180 degrees) - this is the best and most complete aspect.
The two planets complement each other in every way.
B. Square (90 degrees) - initially exciting, this aspect tends to create
more and more problems as time goes on.
C. Trine (120 degrees) - flowing, easy and harmonious.
D. Sextile (60 degress) - the weakest of the benevolent aspects. This
is more appropriate for friends rather than for lovers.
E. Quincunx (150 degrees) - DOES NOT COMPUTE! The two planets have nothing
to do with each other.
F. Conjunction (same sign) - good but perhaps boring.
G. Adjacent signs - difficult. It is harder when the other person's planet
is in the 12th house from your planet. Then you feel a real sense of loss
around them. For example, if my Moon is in Capricorn and your Moon is
in Sagittarius, I will feel a loss of (emotional) energy from being around
you for too long. However, using the same example, you will feel some
benefit from being around me as my Moon is in the 2nd house from your
Meaning of Each Planet
A. Sun - the soul. Good compatibility on the Soul level is more of a
hidden vibration. It is beyond speech or action.
B. Moon - the emotions. According to the Hindus, the Moon is the most
important planet. The ups and downs of daily life are mostly ruled by
the Moon, so that two Moons that are compatible will give great attunement.
C. Mars - energy, assertiveness, aggression. Mars is the primary planet
of action so those who have harmonious Mars will succeed by sharing energetic
activities - sports, hiking, gardening, cooking, etc.
D. Mercury - the planet of intelligence and speech. Compatible Mercuries
give good mental (intellectual) compatibility. Good for discussions, study
and maybe business as Mercury is the primary planet of business.
E. Jupiter - wisdom. This may include religion, philosophy, the Law, higher
education, banking and money. In Vedic astrology, Jupiter is the main
planet of money and it also rules children. Therefore, harmonious Jupiters
imply religious similarities.
F. Venus - sexual attraction and the Creative Impulse.
G. Saturn - hard work, maturity, and responsibility. Those with harmonious
Saturns will have similar outlooks on life in the arenas of work, earnings,
saving and investing. They may do well in business together.
