Free Reports: Compatibility Report Scores
How to interpret the scores in the free Compatibility Report with Birth Times.
Numbers over 1200, in any of the three columns, are considered very high and significant.
I’ve had the free compatibility report section on my site since 2002, and it’s only now, in 2019, that I am writing about the compatibility scores! There is a reason for this–it’s because scoring systems have a lot of caveats. People love scores, but they don’t always read the fine print about them. The scores are in place as relative guidelines to help make a quick judgment of whether or not a particular aspect is strong (close in orb and between significant planets/points) and either challenging (represented by a negative value) or flowing (represented by a positive value).
For example, an aspect that has a value of 168 is a relatively high positive number, and is this way because the aspect is between significant planets, is relatively close in orb, and is generally considered a strengthening, easy, or flowing aspect. An aspect with a value of 52 is also considered an easy aspect but may not be as close in orb or between inner, personal planets such as the Sun, Moon, Mercury, Venus, and Mars. An aspect with a value of -651 is one that’s considered quite difficult in nature and is likely between significant inner planets as well as very close in orb.
In the Compatibility Report with Birth Times, you’ll see a list of the planetary aspects between the two charts in a table.
Look to the totals at the end of the table, and note the highest values you see, whether negative or positive. Generally speaking, we want to see synastries that have a lot of interaction, so high values can point to a significant bond, although they don’t necessarily speak to the quality of the bond. Numbers over 1200 would be considered high values and a stronger bond. Celebrity examples of especially high total activity values are Beyonce and Jay-Z (although their times are under question), Goldie Hawn and Kurt Russell, and Ashton and Demi.
Beyonce and Jay-Z have the following values at the end of their table:
1963 -1207 756
The highest value is 1963, which is unusually high. This means there are many close aspects between key planets/luminaries. The positive value is 1963 and the negative value is 1207 with a sum of 756. The final value of 756 is also unusually high.
Angelina and Brad
730 -1092 -362
The highest value whether negative or positive is 1092. It happens to be a negative value so that the sum or final score is also negative (-362). This doesn’t mean their relationship is negative but that there are more close challenging aspects than positive ones. Their total activity is rather high, which creates a bond.
An example of a celebrity couple who’ve been together for decades but that also have a final score in the negatives are Goldie Hawn and Kurt Russell. Their final score is -275. However, their bond is strong since the highest value is 1393 and this value is very high (over 1200).
A final positive score of 200 or more is above average.
To sum, it’s nice to have a final positive score, and the higher the better. A final positive score of 200 or more is above average. However, people can bond strongly with high activity values since they seem to bring out stronger reactions in one another, and this means that the bottom line is not always truly the final sum.
In truth, while it’s not extremely difficult to rate astrological aspects between charts, it is difficult to make a definite statement about whether two people are good together. Some people are drawn to challenging relationships, while others pass them by. A relationship can be filled with easy, flowing aspects but it may not stick. It’s also difficult to make a blanket statement about a couple, whether celebrity or not, that defines the relationship as good or challenging. People can stay together for years for many reasons, and it’s not always about love or the strength of a bond, for example, so longevity is not necessarily a reliable factor. For these reasons, I feel that the total activity rather than final sum is the most telling value, and even with that in mind, shouldn’t be the final judgment of something as complex as a relationship.
If you’d like to experiment with famous couples, the best source for birth data with Rodden ratings is Astro.com’s AstroDataBank. The ratings help tremendously–this way, you know whether or not you are working with questionable birth times and sometimes even birthdates or years. It’s always preferable to work with charts that are rated AA or A.
Here are some examples:
Kurt Russell and Goldie Hawn (both data sets rated AA): 1393 -1668 -275
Sara Gilbert and Linda Perry (both data sets rated AA): 1395 -1224 171
Jennifer Aniston and Brad Pitt (birth data rated AA and A): 1292 -888 404
Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt (birth data rated AA and A): 730 -1092 -362
Michael C. Hall and Jennifer Carpenter (birth data both rated AA): 389 -1224 -835
Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel (both birth data rated AA): 1038 -541 497
Katy Perry and Orlando Bloom (birth data rated AA and A): 1644 -683 961
Laura Prepon and Ben Foster (both data sets rated AA): 1056 -335 721
Zac Efron and Vanessa Hudgens (both data sets rated AA): 2030 -597 1433
Alison Brie and Dave Franco (both data sets rated AA): 1940 -526 1414
Megan Fox and Brian Austin Green (both data sets rated AA): 1187 -776 411
Ashton Kutcher (rated C, so questionable birth time) and Demi Moore (data rated A): 584 -2725 -2141
Michael Douglas and Catherine Zeta-Jones (both data sets AA or A): 1391 -1127 264
Ashton Kutcher (rated C, so questionable birth time) and Mila Kunis (questionable time): 1122 -816 306
Justin Bieber (data rated B) and Selena Gomez (data rated C): 1087 -798 289
John Legend and Chrissy Teigen 912 -598 314
