(January 2017) – Guidance in seeking and maintaining partnerships is probably the most requested area of the astrologer’s expertise. Over the years, astrologers have devised a number of techniques for providing relationship advice.

The 1970’s, with Uranus and Pluto transiting through Libra, saw an explosion of innovation in the area of relationship astrology. Linda Goodman’s Relationships Signs introduced beginners and curious novices to basic compatibility concepts using signs of the zodiac. John Townley and Rob Hand popularized the concept of composite charts, using the midpoints between two natal charts to produce a horoscope that describes the interaction between two personalities. Coalescent charts, similar to composite charts but based on harmonics, and the Davison chart, derived from the midpoint in time and location between two birth charts, offered other lenses through which to view compatibility.

However, as early as the turn of the 20th Century—more than half a century before this renaissance in relationship astrology—Arthyr Chadbourne’s grandfather developed his own style of compatibility chart. Arthyr has used his grandfather’s system for many years without fail, and now he will share it with SDAS! Whether you’d like to determine whether a potential relationship is right for you or better understand an existing partnership, you won’t want to miss this unique lecture!
