The Friends Compatibility Report for
Birth Data for Amy:
September 16, 1971
Birth Data for Tina:
May 18, 1970
Upper Darby, Pennsylvania
This Friends Report is divided into 4 chapters.
Chapter 1 describes your temperaments and personalities. The issues described in Chapter 1 become particularly powerful if you have a close or long-lasting relationship. Idiosyncrasies or quirks in another person’s personality do not bother us as much if our relationship is a casual one. For example, if one person is neat and tidy and the other is sloppy, this is more likely to become a concern if you depend on each other in a business partnership than if you are casual acquaintances.
Pay close attention to the issues described in Chapter 2 because these are the most important themes in your relationship. For example, if themes of open communication and friendliness are emphasized, then you can count on this relationship growing into a close, long-lasting friendship. However, if friendliness and harmony between you are hardly mentioned at all, your relationship will be a more formal, less personal one and you probably won’t think of one another as close friends. Note also that the material in Chapter 2 is presented roughly in order of importance, so that the material presented at the beginning of Chapter 2 is the most powerful.
Chapter 4 describes issues in your relationship of less importance than those presented in Chapter 2. Chapter 3 describes situations and circumstances that arise over time if your relationship is a long-lasting one.
If a statement appears to contradict another statement, then your roles are likely to alternate. For example, a statement that Amy is more aggressive than Tina, and another statement stating that Tina is more aggressive than Amy, means that you alternate roles, with Amy sometimes being the leader and Tina being the follower, and sometimes just the opposite. Also, read the statements carefully, as it is likely that a careful reading will reveal different kinds of aggressiveness or areas in which the aggressiveness is likely to express itself.
To make the most of this report, combine this astrological analysis with other things that you know about each other. For example, if your relationship is strictly business-related and close, personal friendship is unimportant to both of you, then it will not concern you if there is little warmth in the relationship. However, a lack if warmth and sympathy, or a tendency to be critical and judgmental of one another, is a more serious problem in a parent-child relationship. You may also want to order a Natal Report for each of you. The Natal Report describes your individual traits. The material in Chapters 2, 3 and 4 of this report describes the dynamics of your relationship, but does not describe your individual natures.
Your birth chart interpretation is based on the positions of
the planets at the time of your birth. For the benefit of
students of astrology, these positions, along with other

A Comparison of Temperaments and Life Styles
that Affect Your Ability to Harmonize with Each Other
Amy’s Sun in Virgo and Tina’s Sun in Taurus:
Both of you are practical and down to earth. Amy is more precise and more of a perfectionist than Tina. Amy is also more easily worried and more inconsistent.
Tina is steadier emotionally than Amy is, and Amy appreciates Tina’s consistent nurturing, healing, and soothing qualities. You make very good friends!
Amy’s Moon in Leo and Tina’s Moon in Libra:
Both of you are personable, friendly, and affectionate, but you are different in many respects also.
Amy is individualistic, proud, and somewhat egotistical, while Tina is more aware of others’ needs than Amy is, and more willing to accommodate them. This can be a significant problem for Tina at times – being too obliging, too eager to please, compromising too much. Being indecisive is also a habit of Tina’s. On the other hand, Amy is naturally rather self-centered, more dominant, certain, and decisive, and may unintentionally take advantage of Tina’s agreeableness. But Tina does have a strong sense of fairness and will resent being the one who gives in all of the time.
Both of you have Mercury conjunct or in hard aspect to Saturn:
Both of you are serious-minded and are prone to worrying, pessimistic thinking, or allowing small problems to loom large in your minds. It’s difficult to convince either of you of the potential worth of a plan, without concrete data, factual analysis, or “proof” of its feasibility. You are skeptical, especially of speculative ventures.
You also both tend to dislike a lot of superficial chatter and may be ill at ease with the sort of light, casual, fluffy talk that greases the wheels at most social functions. You may seem critical and standoffish at such events. However, because you both prefer more substantial fare, intellectually speaking, you may well enjoy discussions with one another. At least, you admire the depth of each other’s minds.
When you are together, try not to focus on the negative aspects of a situation, for you can reinforce one another’s tendencies that way.
Both of you have Venus conjunct, trine, or sextile Jupiter:
Both of you are noble and generous towards friends and loved ones. You each try to support the other’s growth and expansion, and promote a feeling of mutual freedom and non-possessiveness towards one another. You are idealistic about love and friendship without being completely unrealistic or deluded about what humans are capable of. You both prefer to see the best in others, and are tolerant and forgiving of the excesses or indiscretions of others.
You both truly enjoy people, parties, and big social events. You share some rather lavish tastes and have a yearning for abundance and ease. Both of you can be a bit lazy also – probably because wealth and other good things come so easily to you.
Both of you have Venus conjunct or in hard aspect to Pluto:
Both of you can be quite possessive, jealous, and intensely attached to and involved with your friends. Elements of subtle manipulation or emotional blackmail may enter into this relationship at times. Both of you are drawn to rather willful, intense people, which may be why you are drawn to one another. You both have much to learn about giving freely and allowing your friends to have a life, separate from you! There may be a love-hate or attraction-repulsion quality to your relationship at times.
Sun & Pluto hard or conj for Amy, soft for Tina:
Amy tends to be intense, driven, sometimes overly zealous or willful, and this is something few other people understand or appreciate. Amy tends to be an extremist, wants to go all the way, and may be regarded as a fanatic by more moderate types. Tina, on the other hand, understands and even enjoys Amy’s intensity, while not sharing the same degree of fervor or obsession. Tina isn’t threatened by – or dominated by – Amy’s strong will and desires. In fact, Tina may be one of the few who can stand up to Amy without becoming embroiled in a furious power struggle. If you both direct your wills toward the same aims, you would be a formidable team, with Tina helping Amy maintain some sense of balance and proportion.
Major Themes in the Relationship: What Brought You Together
Sun Mutually Aspects Venus:
You put each other in a good mood. You are kind, considerate, and warm to each other. You enjoy discussing the arts and there is a high probability that you will join together in an artistic project or activities with a strong aesthetic quality.
Amy’s Sun Square Tina’s Venus:
Your personal styles, tastes, and preferred leisure activities are often not in harmony, and you need to make adjustments and allowances for one another’s differing personal tastes and desires.
Tina’s Sun Trine Amy’s Venus:
Yours is a congenial and enjoyable relationship, for you both appreciate and like one another. You also share a similarity in tastes and enjoyment of leisure activities and pleasures.
Sun Mutually Aspects Pluto:
This is a very intense and complex relationship! You draw out the inner, hidden side of each other and your interactions are invariably intense, direct, and never superficial. Powerful passions, ego drives, and the hidden darker side of your personalities are revealed through your interaction. You also spur and challenge each other to excel and you may become an unbeatable team, working for a lofty goal or very deep, personal, creative expression. Be wary of a tendency to be competitive or jealous of each other, for the respect that you have for each other quickly turns to envy if you ever feel like you are competing rather than cooperating with each other.
Amy’s Sun Conjunct Tina’s Pluto:
You draw out each other’s deepest, hidden feelings, drives, needs, and ambitions. The uncovering of your inner needs and hopes is likely to cause both of you to undergo some major personality changes. You share a deep, inner bond; this is not a light or superficial relationship. You may go on a crusade together and jointly pursue shared interests with unusual intensity and dedication.
Tina’s Sun Trine Amy’s Pluto:
Amy helps Tina achieve personal goals, activate Tina’s latent talents and strengths, and encourages and promotes Tina’s creative work and endeavors. You can be a very successful duo. However, Amy can be more driving and ambitious for Tina than Tina is, like the “stage mother” who pushes her child to shine and to excel even when it is not the child’s own aspiration. Amy can have a profound influence on Tina, most likely for the good, but possibly not. Subtle manipulation and domination on Amy’s part should be avoided.
Tina’s Mercury Square Amy’s Mars:
The tendency to argumentativeness, verbal abuse, and mutual misunderstanding is very strong so please heed the following advice: try to avoid abusive language towards each other, and do not try to coerce the other person to accept your views. You enjoy challenging each other’s ideas, showing the weaknesses, inconsistencies, or superficialities in each other’s reasoning. While the intention is good, the net result can be hurt feelings and anger. Typically there is some truth to each other’s point of view, but a lack of real appreciation and respect for each other’s ideas triggers argumentativeness.
Amy’s Venus Sextile Tina’s Neptune:
You enjoy sharing music, art, or poetry with each other. Taking evening walks, listening to music together, and watching movies together are likely to be some of your favorite shared activities. You encourage one another to relax and perhaps to be lazy or passive. Also, you accept and appreciate one another, and readily overlook one another’s weaknesses.
Amy’s Mars Square Tina’s Saturn:
In your friendship, Amy is the eager, passionate, active and impulsive one, and Tina frequently puts on the brakes or tries to control, play down, and restrain Amy’s desires and drives. Amy is likely to feel very frustrated, angry or discouraged if Tina expresses disapproval or caution too often, and this can be a source of considerable friction between you. Tina feels overwhelmed and envious of Amy’s intensity and assertiveness, but instead of trying to hold Amy down, Tina should confront the fears and inhibitions that Amy’s directness evokes.
Destiny and Final Outcome of Your Relationship
Composite Sun Sextile Moon:
An underlying sense of equality and true understanding sustains your friendship. You will give and receive, depend on and be depended upon, teach and learn from one another in equal measure.
Some especially fortunate or fortuitous events which occur while you are getting to know one another give you a sense of “going with the flow” which continues throughout your relationship.
Composite Sun Sextile Saturn:
One of the positives in your relationship is the sense that you can always count on each other, and that you have a steady, reliable friend in one another. Conscientiousness, loyalty and remaining friends through “thick and thin” are essential aspects of your bond.
Practical matters, work, and taking care of mundane affairs are also very much a part of it. You work well together and because you make wise financial and business choices, you could be very successful in joint ventures.
Composite Moon Trine Saturn:
Loyalty, stability, and commitment characterize this relationship, which is destined to be a long-lasting one. Because you are consistently there for one another, and can be counted on for practical as well as emotional support, a solid feeling of security builds between you. As time goes on, the history you share becomes a strong force binding you two together. Your friendship becomes a great source of strength for each of you.
Together you are fairly realistic, not expecting more than another human being is capable of providing. You’ll also do well in any long-term investing or joint ownership of property.
Composite Moon Conjunct Pluto:
This will not be a superficial encounter! If you see each other often, you will find that you share more with each other than you do with others. Aspects of yourself that are hidden to most people are shared in this relationship. You are likely to share past experiences that were painful and difficult, and much healing can be achieved through your interaction with each other.
One of the purposes of your coming together is to dredge up unresolved emotional business and psychic blockages, in order to understand, heal, and ultimately be free of them. If your relationship is strictly of a business nature, then this process of sharing ideas and feelings of a deeply personal nature will be an additional factor that you probably had not anticipated.
Composite Mercury Square Uranus:
There is an electric, intellectual quality to your friendship. You’ll be continually challenging or upsetting one another’s ways of seeing the world, provoking each other to THINK and to remain mentally alert, active, and awake. One of you is apt to be considerably more liberal, progressive, “radical”, and interested in unconventional or alternative concepts and methods than the other, who finds this both fascinating and unsettling.
When you are together you tend to speak before you really ponder what you are saying, and the intellectual give and take between you can be rather dazzling. You may feel more brilliant and quick-witted with one another than you do with other people. However, you will also find one another’s company to be nerve-wracking and not very relaxing a lot of the time.
You are great for one another when it comes to brainstorming, stimulating original thinking and inspiring one another intellectually – and that is at least part of what this relationship is for.
Composite Sun Trine Neptune:
Unselfishness, tolerance, and forgiveness flow readily between you, and you may share spiritual aspirations and an inspiring idealism. You have high standards for your friendship and may expect yourselves or one another to be the Perfect Friend, all-giving and always impeccable in your dealings with each other. For the most part you both try to live up to these lofty images, and to not taint your relationship with selfish or mundane considerations.
The psychic tie is strong between you, too. You may experience an unusual ability to “read” one another, send messages to one another telepathically, and so on. Any interest you have in the metaphysical or imaginative arts will be highlighted, and become an important focus in your relationship.
Composite Sun Sextile Pluto:
You are undeniably a powerful duo, and the way you relate to one another affects the people around you much more than you realize.
You cannot avoid learning one another’s deepest fears, desires, motives, and aspects of one another that few others have ever seen. You can’t hide much from one another. This won’t trouble you but instead will be the basis of an especially profound friendship.
Fateful, unexpected events which are very much beyond your control will shape your relationship to a significant extent.
Composite Mercury Trine Jupiter:
Together you two have quite a lot of good luck, especially in anything involving trade or commerce, legal negotiations, and decisions affecting the future. Professionally or socially you will open new worlds for one another, greatly expanding your contacts and opportunities.
Travel and/or significant connections with people from other cultures will play a key role in your relationship, also.
You share a common philosophical base and are able to communicate from a lofty, impersonal, unselfish point of view. You are an ennobling influence on each other. If nothing else, you are quite tolerant of one another’s beliefs and thoughts, able to overlook the inconsequential.
Composite Venus Trine Mars:
It is likely that the two of you enjoy playing games or sports together. There is a creative, fun-loving quality to your friendship that inclines you to engage in artistic, musical, or other creative endeavors. You enjoy competing against each other and also being team mates in competition against another team.
Composite Venus Square Jupiter:
Openness, generosity, spreading good will, and generally having a good time together are emphasized in your relationship. If either or both of you have any tendency to be extravagant or to spend too much on pleasure, being together will really blow this out of proportion. Neither of you wants to deny yourselves any of the good things in life, and when you are in each other’s company, restricting yourselves won’t be easy.
Nevertheless, yours is destined to be a felicitous, affectionate, and fortunate friendship. A full and active social life, lots of “fun time”, possibly vacationing or traveling together are certainly a significant part of this. And even when you face difficult times in your lives, you manage to buoy one another up and maintain hope for the future.
Composite Mars Quincunx Jupiter:
As a team you will have to balance a certain tendency to over-estimate your resources and capacities. Somehow you foster in one another an unrealistic belief in your powers, prowess, or potential for success. You will generate a lot of positive energy and expectations which can then dissipate due to poor timing or becoming discouraged over having bitten off more than you could chew. Like the minor league player who will never feel successful unless he makes it to the major league, you will need to be satisfied with what you can do or achieve or create, rather than comparing yourselves to a rather grandiose standard. Eventually the two of you can succeed in your dreams but it will take a lot more patience and hard work than may seem to be the case when you first embark on a joint project or endeavor.
Composite Saturn Trine Pluto:
Together you are capable of extreme dedication, concentration, and self-denial for the sake of a mutual goal. There is an obsessive, unrelenting quality to this. Certainly when the two of you combine forces to accomplish something, you are a formidable team capable of enduring and going the distance. You won’t collapse under pressure or shirk the necessary hardships.
However, you can be excessively one-sided, or may needlessly deny yourselves certain pleasures which you may consider distractions or a frivolous waste of energy. There may be a subtle tyranny going on, either towards yourselves, or one another. Unless you supply some gentleness and adaptability, what you achieve together in concrete terms may come at too dear a cost.
Other Themes in Your Relationship
Tina’s Sun Opposition Amy’s Jupiter:
There is a great deal of enthusiasm and optimism in your relationship. You inspire each other to expand your horizons, explore new possibilities, and improve your financial and social situation. You have a lot of good will towards each other, and also allow each other a lot of freedom. You may, however, engage in risky speculations together that are driven more by optimism and hopefulness than by well thought out plans, and consequently fall far short of your expectations. Overall, however, this astrological influence is a positive one of good will and optimism.
Tina’s Sun Opposition Amy’s Neptune:
There is a strong tendency to be unrealistic in your perceptions and expectations of each other. Bitter disappointments and a loss of trust and confidence in one another can arise. To prevent this from happening, you both must strive be scrupulously honest with each other, and refrain from “playing games”, exaggerating or hiding things from one another. If handled positively, this astrological influence can inspire higher ideals and altruism in both of you.
Amy’s Sun Square Tina’s Mars:
This is a dynamic, energetic relationship, but unfortunately also a rather aggressive and combative one at times. As long as you don’t end up fighting and competing with each other, you can accomplish a great deal together. However, the aggressiveness of this relationship is prone to foster anger and hurt feelings -so be careful not to incite hostility in each other.
Tina’s Sun Square Amy’s Moon:
The distinct differences in your temperaments inclines you to periods of personality clashes and misunderstandings. In particular, Amy often feels that Tina does not sympathize enough or try to really understand Amy’s feelings. Both of you will have to understand and respect your differences, and make a concerted effort to harmonize your very different temperaments.
Amy’s Sun Trine Tina’s Sun:
Your basic aims and approach to life are in harmony, and the mutual respect you feel forms the basis of an excellent friendship or partnership. You feel understood, appreciated, recognized, and affirmed by one another. You stimulate, vitalize, motivate, and believe in each other.
Amy’s Moon Sextile Tina’s Venus:
There is a great deal of warmth and kindness in this relationship. You do not hesitate to assist each other and you feel like family even if you are not biologically related.
Amy’s Moon Sextile Tina’s Mars:
You probably enjoy sports or other vigorous physical activities together. You work together well as a team and can accomplish much together.
Amy’s Venus Conjunct Tina’s Uranus:
The two of you can really loosen up and have a good time together. You are a good combination to have a party, because the enthusiasm and spontaneity of your interactions infect everyone with a feeling of being uninhibited, spontaneous, and even a bit wild at times.
Amy’s Venus Conjunct Tina’s Pluto:
There is a great deal of magnetic attraction between you which can interfere with your objectivity about one another, or with any professional relationship you might have. Deep feelings of either love and appreciation or distrust and repulsion are stirred up between you, but much of this may be played out behind the scenes or in subtle ways. You are likely to wonder why your feelings toward one another are so irrationally strong. Negatively, there is a tendency for either or both of you to manipulate the other and to use your friendship for selfish purposes. Positively, an unusually deep and close relationship can develop between you, one in which there are few secrets or superficial social masks to hide behind.
Amy’s Venus Square Tina’s Venus:
Your tastes in art, music, and food are frequently very different and, more importantly, your approach to friendship and money is often at odds with each other. These differences are not severe and are likely to cause only minor annoyances, but nevertheless are a nuisance, leading to mutual misunderstandings.
Tina’s Venus Square Amy’s Pluto:
This is likely to be a love-hate type of relationship, for you tend to become intensely close and attached to one another, and you are prone to experience extreme jealousy, power struggles, or other highly-charged emotional scenes with one another. Feelings of being controlled and manipulated, or of being overly possessive towards each other are likely, and Tina in particular can feel overwhelmed or “used.” There can be a deep love between you, however, if you can avoid or come to terms with these negative tendencies that exist within and between you.
Amy’s Jupiter Conjunct Tina’s Neptune:
You dream big and beautiful dreams together and because you stimulate one another’s faith, optimism, and idealism, you feel that anything is possible. If either or both of you tend to be impractical or irresponsible, being with one another will increase that propensity, and together you are likely to harbor unrealistic hopes or ungrounded, grandiose schemes and speculations. You may become sloppy or lazy together. On the other hand, if you are fairly disciplined and well-balanced people, you will encourage each other to take a leap of faith, and to push past previous limits and boundaries that you’ve set for yourselves. Traveling, enjoyable escapades, or spiritual quests are an important aspect of your relationship.
Amy’s Saturn Trine Tina’s Uranus:
Tina loosens Amy up and prevents Amy from becoming too rigid and tight, encouraging Amy to make changes and take more leaps into the unknown. Amy has a steadying effect on Tina and helps Tina organize and direct Tina’s energies into clear, definite channels, encouraging Tina to be more reliable and constant.
Tina’s Neptune Sextile Amy’s Pluto:
Your spiritual values and strengths harmonize with one another and this is a subtle but positive force in your relationship.
Report Order FAQ
Frequently Asked Questions related to Report Orders
WHAT IF MY ORDER DOESN’T ARRIVE WITHIN 24 HOURS?
Reports are generally delivered within 24 hours of order placement, or if there were missing details, within 24 hours of the receipt of full information needed to generate the report(s). Occasionally, an order might arrive a little late if there was an unexpected influx of orders, for example, a power outage, etc.
However, if 24 hours have passed and you don’t find an email from Kristen – Cafe Astrology (reports @cafeastrology.com) in your inbox or spam folder, then please write and let Kristen know. Please understand that we make every effort to send your order, and if this is impossible, you will receive a refund.
Some people have problems with email delivery, particularly with emails that have attachments. In these cases, we can put the report(s) in a secure place online for download. If you prefer this method regardless, write Kristen an email with the request or add the request in the notes with your order placement.
HOW WILL I RECEIVE MY REPORT IF I WASN’T ASKED FOR MY EMAIL ADDRESS?
By default, Kristen sends report orders to the email address associated with Paypal. That’s the email that comes in with your payment and order details. You can specify another email address if you’d like, but keep in mind that a Paypal receipt email is automatically sent to the customer as soon as payment is made, and that email will go to the email address registered with Paypal.
SHOULD I USE 12 PM FOR AN UNKNOWN BIRTH TIME?
No, you should specify that the birth time is unknown rather than guess it so that the report can be created specifically for unknown birth times.
Although unknown birth time reports can be a little shorter than the reports with known birth times, they only include information that is known. Most importantly, the ambiguous information is excluded from the report.
Some people feel that they will get more for their money if they guess at the birth time, as they assume that more interpretations in the reports are better. However, it’s much better to have a shorter report with accurate interpretations than a longer report with a mix of accurate and inaccurate interpretations! In this case, less is definitely more.
CAN I ORDER A SOLAR RETURN (OR OTHER FORECAST REPORT) FOR A YEAR IN THE FUTURE/PAST?
Yes, absolutely. The start date of a report can be any date in the past or the future.
In the case of a Solar Return, the start date will be on or in the two days surrounding the birth month and day due to the nature of this type of forecasting technique, but the year of the report can be any year in the future or past.
In the case of the Time Line report, the software only allows the start date to be the first of any given month, for example, May 1st, 2017.
DO I NEED TO PAY WITH A PAYPAL BALANCE TO PLACE AN ORDER?
No, the shopping cart used on the site is run by Paypal, but all the usual payment options are included so that you can use credit cards, debit cards, and the like. There are different shopping cart technologies available to sellers, and Cafe Astrology has selected the Paypal shopping cart as its solution. All payment details are sent to Paypal and not to Cafe Astrology. Paypal sends Cafe Astrology an email with each order that lists the order details and email address, not any payment information. We are not set up as a merchant at this time.
WHY ARE THE PLANETS’ TRANSITS OF THE HOUSES IN MY REPORT NOT THE SAME AS THOSE OF YOUR HOROSCOPES?
Reports are based on your birth time, while horoscopes are based on solar charts. A solar chart places the Sun’s sign on the Ascendant, and most people don’t have the same Sun and Ascendant in their natal charts. While a solar chart is a valid chart and certainly has its merits, the natal chart should be the first you look at.
WHICH HOUSE SYSTEM DO YOU USE?
For reports, the default house system used is Placidus. However, you can request another house system for your order (example, Koch, Equal, Whole Sign, etc.).
WHY DO MY RESULTS DIFFER FROM THOSE FROM OTHER SOURCES?
It’s important to note that there are many different valid methods for arriving at various astrology calculations, including the Zodiac (Sidereal or Tropical), system of houses used, method of progressing the houses in the case of progressions, use of current or birth location for certain forecasting techniques, and many more. It’s rare that an astrology software program is making wrong calculations. Typically, discrepancies have to do with different systems and not about one or the other being “wrong.” When the Ascendant differs, it’s usually about an ambiguous time zone since we must use the time zone that was in effect at the time of birth and historical time zone information is not perfect. It is simply not true that any one particular software program has every historical time zone correct, although many efforts are made to get them right.
If you receive unexpected results, please send an email to Kristen who can look into the matter and explain the reasons for it, such as an ambiguous time zone or a particular calculation method. It’s important to provide as many details as possible.
WHY IS THE DATE OF MY SOLAR RETURN NOT THE SAME AS MY BIRTHDAY?
The Solar Return chart is drawn for the date and time of the return of the Sun to its exact position at birth, and not to the birthday itself. The Sun returns to its birth position once a year on or near the day of birth, and rarely coincides with the time of birth. For example, if my birthday is September 2nd, 1970 @ 5:00 PM, my Solar Return could be September 1st, 2016, @ 4:24 AM one year, September 2nd, 2017, @ 1:22 AM the next, and so forth. If the birth data is entered correctly on the report, you can expect the Solar Return date and time to be accurate.
HOW CAN I GET MY REPORT ORDER QUICKLY?
Report orders are promised within approximately 24 hours from the time of order placement and complete information required to create the report. Kristen sends out reports by email and she is at the report computer typically eight hours a day. Because orders and responses come in from all around the world at all hours of the day and night, rush orders are not possible. However, to prevent delays, making certain that you’ve included all information requested and that it’s accurate will prevent the need for email back and forths that will cause delays.
Typically orders are emailed out within 12 hours or so, but they do sometimes come closer to 24 hours. The most common reason is a sudden influx of orders. There are times when more than the usual number of orders come in and it takes much longer to complete orders.
WHEN DO I RECEIVE MY REPORT?
Within 24 hours of order placement, you should receive an email from Kristen, either as a request for further information or clarification if there is missing/unclear information or with a report attachment. If the information is incomplete, Kristen will request it from you and you will receive your order within 24 hours of receipt of the full information necessary to create your report.
DO I HAVE TO ENTER MY BIRTH DATA FOR EACH REPORT THAT I WANT TO ORDER?
If you are buying more than one report in one order, you can enter birth information only once if you prefer. However, it’s important to note that some reports require different or additional information, so be sure to supply all that is needed to create your reports.
