Relationship Analysis (Astrology: A Language of Life Vol. IV)
Author: Robert P. Blaschke
Astrology Level: 3/4
Our Rating: A+
Relationship Analysis is Volume IV in Blaschke’s Astrology a Language of Life series of books. This gem of a book has only recently been published. The author discusses the theory of relationship astrology, interchart aspects, the composite chart, the Davison chart, and future considerations. He covers broad subject matter, including such things as midpoints, progressed composite and Davison charts, synastric progressions, Solar Returns, the Part of Marriage, Sabian symbols, and more. He goes into detail on the topic of electing a date of marriage, the concept of the “shadow”, and a topic that isn’t covered frequently: “mirror degree synastry” or antiscia synastry. There are more topics covered than I can list here. The author also helps readers prepare for a consultation and offers a Relationship Analysis Worksheet that serves as an excellent means for organizing one’s findings. Outstanding, and a must-own book for those with a serious interest in relationship astrology.
Relationship Analysis is perhaps the most extensive and organized book on the subject. This book is outstanding. It’s not a cookbook in that it doesn’t offer interpretations of each synastry aspect or composite position, for example, but it explores the topic of relationship astrology in depth. Used in conjunction with other cookbook-style books (such as Planets in Composite: Analyzing Human Relationships (The Planet Series) by Robert Hand, Planets in Synastry: Astrological Patterns of Relationships (The Planet Series) by EW Neville, and Synastry Techniques (The Only Way to Learn About Relationships, Volume 5) by March and McEvers), this book is invaluable.
Note that for those who don’t delight in details, this book may be considered a tad overwhelming due to the fact that there are so very many topics covered. If you are familiar with Blaschke’s work, Progressions (Astrology: a Language of Life), you will know that when he covers a topic, he truly covers it, in much detail.
