The Vedic Astrology Romantic Compatibility Report is a special computerized report that examines a romantic relationship using specific criteria in Vedic Astrology. Although we feature Western astrology on our site, we offer this report for a few reasons. Vedic Astrology tends to be very specific—some say fatalistic, although this is not always the case with many modern Vedic astrologers.
This particular report will appeal to those who take comfort in a formula or a “bottom line”. A couple either scores well in a particular category…or not. Those who are sensitive to this type of formula should not purchase the report.
The ancient method of relationship compatibility is largely based upon the Moons of the couple though it also includes a comparison of Mars. These techniques determine the fundamental compatibility that is the foundation of the relationship. If the compatibility is favorable, the couple will have the capacity to relate in a manner that allows the love to flow and for both of them to grow in a positive way. Karmic and behavioral factors will modify to which extent they will fulfill this capacity. If the compatibility is inadequate the couple will find it difficult to flow together; their very energies will not harmonize well together. In this case there is little that they can do, but to accept the fact that they collide or miss each other at times. They can consciously attempt to create a better flow, but at times they will fall back onto their natural, disruptive flow, especially during times of stress or fatigue.
In these techniques a very careful examination of the Moons are made. The Moons are compared not only in the context of the sign that they are in, but also in the context of the Nakshatra that they are in. A Nakshatra is a lunar asterism, of which there are twenty seven. Each of the Nakshatras relates to a small constellation. The Nakshatras are the ancient star based zodiac.
Why the Moons? Because, according to the writer of this compatibility report (Ernst Wilhelm),…
- The Moon is the “Manas, Mind, in which lives the Jiva: the self, with Ahamkara, the Ego, the idea of separate existence.” -Sri Yukteswar. The Moon, therefore, indicates the compatibility of the two selves.
- The Moon is the social planet through which people’s energies flow together. Whether the relationship flows in such a manner as to create mutual respect and increase in love, or whether it flows in a manner that causes disrespect and loss of love is largely dependent upon the Moon.
- The Moon is the conditioned consciousness; what is most comfortable, familiar and innate to the individual. It is most important for those living together and spending a great deal of time with each other to be comfortable with each other and to offer support to one other.
- The Moon represents the small things we need throughout the day to keep us feeling balanced and all right, such as the type of food we need, the stimulation we need, the environment we need, etc. It is important that two people spending a lot of time together need similar things at the same time, else one person, usually the less dominant one, will begin to feel unbalanced and unwell.
This compatibility report is written by Ernst Wilhelm and produced by Kala Occult Publishers. If you are interested in learning more about Vedic Astrology, please visit www.vedic-astrology.net.
Information required for the analysis:
Please list the following information for each person:
- Name (first name is acceptable)
- Birth day (example Nov. 12/71 – please use Month/Day/Year format if you are using numerical months)
- Birth time (example 7:25 PM)
- Birth place (example San Diego, CA)
Note this is a romantic compatibility report. The Moon signs listed in the report may be different than those in the other reports we offer, due to the use of the Sidereal Zodiac in Vedic astrology, while we use the Tropical Zodiac.
**Important**: Note also that the system used here speaks of the man and the woman. Many of the interpretations are gender-biased—that is the nature of the Vedic compatibility system, which is an old system traditionally used to match women and men for marriage. Because same-sex marriages and relationships were not recognized in those days, this Indian traditional system doesn’t take them into account. Obviously, because this compatibility system is hetero-normative and does not reflect today’s much more friendly progressive views, it’s limited. However, I offer the report to those curious about how their relationship would have fared with this traditional system. I am working on an adaptation of the report for same-sex unions, which should be available shortly. All other compatibility reports we offer on the site are based on modern views of couples and do not have different interpretations for males and females. As well, this report may not be relevant for those who don’t conform to the usual gender stereotypes.
This report does not describe the characters of either person and instead reveals and explains the scores/results in each compatibility category. Keep in mind that many couples do score low in these categories – if you feel that receiving a low score or rating will bother you, then it’s better to look for a non-score-based compatibility report instead.
Unlike the other reports we offer, this report uses sidereal Astrology calculations. The Moon signs may not be the same as those in the tropical zodiac.

Your Moons are in the same Asterism
Fortunately, the asterism that your Moons are in is a relationship-centered asterism. This means that you have great compatibility. Keep reading to get the details of your compatibility, keeping in mind a few things: Since your asterism is relationship-centered, the difficulties mentioned below will not be a problem; they will not be a strong part of your relationship. Only the favorable things mentioned below will play a large role in your relationship.
The flow of your relationship will stimulate mutual respect and, thereby, growth of love.
In any relationship it is respect that is most important. Love is said to, “flourish in the soil of mutual respect.” When any two people get together there is a particular flow between them. If it flows well, both people feel respected, cared for and loved. If it does not flow well, both people feel disrespected, incompetent and frustrated. Men and women tend to feel loved for different things and thus need to be respected in different ways. Men feel most loved when their thoughts and actions are respected and when they are appreciated for what they do. Women feel most loved when their feelings are respected and when they are appreciated for who they are. This is not to say that a woman does not feel loved when her thoughts and actions are respected and when she is appreciated for what she does, it is only to say that she feels most loved when her feelings are respected and when she is appreciated for who she is. Men do feel loved when they are appreciated for who they are and when they have their feelings respected, but they feel most loved when they are respected for their thoughts and actions and when they are appreciated for what they do. Since men and women feel most loved when respected for different things, a healthy relationship will flow in such a way so that both people will most often be respected for what is most important to them.
Your relationship is set up so that the energy will flow from the man to the woman, which is the ideal situation. The man will get a clear picture of what needs to be done in the relationship and he will be able to take the steps to do it. This will put him in a position where the woman will have the opportunity to respect him for what he is doing. As a result he will feel loved and his self-esteem and confidence will flourish and he will become a better man as a result. He will also get ideas about the relationship and what to do in the relationship and bring them to the woman for her consideration and input so they can work together to create a happy future. The woman will feel loved and cared for since the man is taking the steps that show that she is important to him and that she is worth building a life with. Since the man will be demonstrating his love for the woman, the woman will feel better and better about herself. Any ills she may have suffered in the past and in past relationships that have caused her to wonder why anyone would ever want to be with her will become distant memories and she will become a better and happier woman.
If for some reason you find things not flowing as smoothly, then there are likely to be issues that both of you have to work out as individuals, but which the relationship can help you work out. If things are not flowing as expected, then the man will be in need of improving his self-esteem. He probably doubts himself or just doesn’t know what he wants in life. This can cause him to not put the proper energy into the relationship or make it hard for him to have the courage to tell the woman what he wants. Given time, this relationship can help him discover these things about himself, since the flow of the relationship will help him breed the confidence he needs. The woman will probably still feel the need to prove herself, that somehow she is not “good enough,” or that if she does not do it, no one will do it just for her. As a result of feeling these things, she may do a lot more than necessary in the relationship. Given time, the good flow in this relationship will help her feel better about these things and help her experience a whole new world where she is the center of her man’s attention and actions.
You are on the Same Wavelength
For a relationship to be smooth, efficient and nurturing the couple has to be on the same wavelength. They must have mutual needs so that they can share in the fulfillment of those needs and they must have an innate ability to understand each other. Everything that we do in life has a subtle influence upon us. Throughout the day we crave one thing or another. Fulfilling these cravings goes a long way in helping us feel balanced and energized. When our body is craving exercise we need to get out there and move or we just won’t feel okay. If we are feeling the need to be by the ocean we won’t feel right until we get there. If we feel like eating a certain food, we will feel hungry until we eat that food. So it goes throughout the day. A couple that wants to spend a lot of time together has to have needs and cravings that are similar in nature and they have to have these needs at the same time. Otherwise, one or both of the individuals will not experience enough of what they need and end up not feeling right until, over time, they will become drained. If this type of attunement is not there, then the couple will also not relate and communicate well together since they really won’t be tuned into the same thing at the same time.
Your Wavelength score is 20 or higher which puts you both on the same wavelength and makes you naturally attuned to each other. As a result of this natural attunement with each other you will share many similar feelings about things and will often feel like doing the very same thing, so you will be able to spend hours with each other and your presence will help energize each other. This attunement will help you form deeper bonds as you naturally identify more and more with each other. Since you are so attuned to each other you will often find that you know what the other is going to say and be able to tune into what they really mean, so you will be able to share on a much deeper level. This attunement helps you both energize each other, so spending time together in close proximity, sleeping in the same bed and such can really help you feel good.
Your Wavelength score is determined by eight different astrological measures. Each of these eight measures has something important to show you about your relationship. Continue reading to learn all about these eight factors and how they are affecting your relationship.
Your Relationship Suffers from Excess Vata
Each persons physical health as well as their actions are governed by three principles: Kapha, Pitta and Vata. Kapha correlates to the Chinese principle of Yin and to the Phlegmatic temperament. Pitta correlates to the Yang principle and the Bilious temperament. Vata correlates to the interplay or movement of Yin and Yang and the Windy temperament. These principles are very important in respect to our actions, health and feelings. Kapha provides the capacity for love, devotion, receptivity, rest, enjoyment and emotional response. Pitta provides courage, initiative, leadership, determination, intelligence, improvement and protection. Vata provides the capacity for the change and adjustment that life requires in order to live healthily and happily. If one of these temperaments becomes excessive, then the relationship, the lives of both the individuals and the physical health of the couple may become unbalanced and strained.
Each person has their own make up and blend of Kapha, Pitta and Vata, which is their “normal” state. This “normal” state may or may not be a healthy “normal.” Regardless of a person’s normal mental and physical state, when we relate to another person, the energy can change and there is the possibility of two people relating together to create an excess of Kapha, Pitta or Vata which results in their relationship having some imbalance. The imbalance will also carry over into the rest of their lives.
Astrological Factors indicate that your relationship suffers from excess Vata. Excess Vata can make it difficult to maintain focus and consistency and you may find your lives together being full of change and instability. You may especially notice inconsistency with the small things, such as eating regularly, sleeping regular hours, keeping a schedule, etc. When trying to work something out, you may find yourselves quickly becoming confused and unsure of your thoughts and not be able to explain yourself the way that you desire to. Or, if you do actually come up with a game plan, you will find it difficult to follow through. Basically, excess Vata causes the relationship to be a bit ungrounded and makes it more difficult for you both to be focused and grounded when in each other’s presence. This not only creates difficulties in small things, like not having a clear idea of how to proceed or what to do at times, but also with the big thing of what to do with the relationship. When you do feel a lack of focus around each other, just a short time apart can get you both on track again.
Ancient astrological texts state that excess Vata will harm the woman more than the man. Vata is the energy of movement, grace and change, which is usually more dominant in women than in men. Excess Vata in a relationship, therefore, tends to affect the woman more than the man. So it is more likely that the woman will feel that her life is getting more inconsistent and lacking focus and direction. Excess Vata can cause the woman to suffer from fatigue, constipation, stress, and lethargy in the mornings, restlessness in the evenings and shallow or disturbed sleep. It is, therefore, a good idea to emphasize taking care of the woman’s health and make sure that she eats and sleeps regularly, gets away from the stress and finds something relaxing to do. Exercise helps. Excess Vata can, of course, affect the man as well, but usually it is the woman that suffers the Vata excess the most.
Excess Vata reduces your Wavelength score by eight points over what it would be if you did not have any such excess. Fortunately your Wavelength score is still twenty or greater. This gives you plenty of room to connect and relate healthily with each other even if you do get a bit spacey or ungrounded at times. And it gives you plenty of ways to relate to each other and work out any problems which having excess Vata may cause, to the point that these problems are only inconveniences, inconveniences being something that no relationship ever escapes entirely. If you spend a little time making sure that you both are working to balance the Vata in the female part of your couple by striving towards regularity in your lifestyle, your relationship can even improve.
You will naturally be creative and constructive with each other.
Astrological indications reveal that you will find it quite easy, and even automatic to be constructive with each other. You will find many things to create together and share many desires together that you hope to build into your lives. You will very often desire to do and create very similar things so that there will be many opportunities to enjoy each other as you build your lives together. Your capability to create together is one of the best things for the relationship and earns you seven points towards your Wavelength score.
When it comes right down to it, both of you are progressive, industrious and practical people. Since you both have this similar temperament you will better be able to relate to each other and better be able to relate to the rest of the world together. You will both strive to make the most of any situation that life offers you. You will be able to take advantage of the best options that life presents to you. When life is hard, you will both do what you can to make things better and get you through the difficulties. Having a similar temperament goes a long way in creating harmony and a sense of purpose together, and you therefore earn six points towards your total Wavelength score.
You have a natural affinity for friendship with each other.
A primary ingredient for any good relationship is the affinity of friendship. Friends are discovered in the places we like and in the things that we like to do, so in a relationship, friendship makes two people want to do things together. Also, in any relationship, people need to treat each other in a friendly way, especially during difficult times. Astrological indications reveal that you both have a natural affinity for friendship. This will help you both enjoy the same things and the same places and also help you have the same attitude about things. There will be greater feelings of friendship and mutual understanding, and compromise, when necessary, will be quite easy. When things get tough, you will have friendship to fall back upon and will treat each other kindly as you work things out. This natural affinity for friendship earns you five points towards your total Wavelength score.
Each person has an instinctive nature that they rely upon in intense situations when all recourse has left them. This instinctive nature is usually resorted to in crisis situations and in situations when a person has to do something, but does not know what to do. The instinctive nature also comes out to a lesser degree during the more intense aspects of sex. For a couple to go through intense situations harmoniously together and for a couple to bond through intense experiences and sexual experiences, it is important that their instinctive natures be compatible.
Astrological indications reveal that your instinctive natures are the same, which is great and earns you three points towards your total Wavelength score. Having the same instinctive natures will help you get through the intense experiences in life easily together and you will even bond deeply through these experiences.
A man’s temperament will either feel comfortable and safe to a woman, or it will feel more threatening. If the man’s temperament feels safe and comfortable, then the woman will, or course, feel better about the relationship, and she will also be better able to get over any issues that may be making having a good relationship difficult for her. It will help her grow emotionally. The man will also benefit as he will feel like he is doing the right things in the relationship which will help him feel good about himself and, by extension, the relationship. If, on the other hand, the man’s temperament feels more threatening, the woman will only have a more difficult time feeling secure in the relationship and the efforts that the man might make to move the relationship forward, or to improve the relationship, may actually cause a setback in the relationship. If that is the case, the man may become frustrated and unhappy with himself and, by extension, the relationship.
Astrological indications reveal that the man’s general temperament is non-threatening to the woman and so you gain three points towards your total Wavelength score. This will help both of you feel good about the relationship – the woman will feel good because more of the man’s actions (if indeed he takes any actions) will feel right by her and the man will feel good because he is doing right by the woman. In times of difficulty, there is a greater possibility of working things out, what the man will do to fix the problem (if he attempts to fix the problem) will more often than not be what will fix the problem.
This is quite a minor comparison by itself, and by itself it will not have a major say in the relationship, it is only important in the context of gaining a high enough Wavelength score as to have a good relationship.
You both innately know what the other needs.
When you are together there will be an innate ability to know what the other person needs and you will both be happy to provide it to the other person. You will both naturally know who is in the greater need at the given moment and the other will be happy to provide at that time. This can really help you both feel like you care for each other and so earns you two points towards your Wavelength score.
This relationship will incline you to make positive changes.
People change as a result of being in a relationship. Each person mutates somewhat as a result of being with the other. Ideally, this change is for the better and since it is part of human nature to want to change and improve, if the relationship has an innate ability to bring about positive changes, the couple’s need for growing and improving will be better met.
Astrological indications reveal that your relationship is more likely to help you both change towards the positive instead of the negative. This will make the relationship more fulfilling and so you gain one points towards your Wavelength score.
INNATE SENSE OF PURPOSE
Even though you have a very high Wavelength score, astrological indications reveal that you do not necessarily have an innate sense of purpose together. So, you will be wise to make sure that your reasons for being together are solid reasons. If your reasons for being together are superficial, then you may well find yourself one day wondering why you are together.
Obstacles can be overcome so that you can be together.
In any relationship so much has to happen for two people to completely be together. Many of these things are practical things, like living in the same place, both being free and unattached, having work schedules that allow the necessary time for being together and having enough money to feel secure about building a life together. Then there is always the matter of being in the same mood and frame of mind so that they can enjoy sharing their lives with each other. Getting all of these things to fall into place can be quite a chore at times and there is plenty of opportunity for setbacks and obstacles to being together. For some couples, their destinies are timed so completely differently that there will always be something, or some feeling, preventing them from fully being together. Their destinies pull them apart and simply living their very lives becomes a source of obstacles to being together. When one lives in California, the other lives in Florida, when the Californian moves to Florida, the Floridian moves to New York to take care of their mother…and so the relationship goes or, rather, does not go. Fortunately, you escape this and the timing of your destinies is not an impossible conflict. So long as other compatibility factors are okay, you will be able to sort out your lives and make any changes and adjustments necessary in order to be together.
Your association may attract trouble between yourselves.
Besides the obvious importance to love and to be loved in a relationship, it is important for every couple to share a productive and happy life together. In fact, being in love increases our desire to live a productive and fortunate life. Some people get together and find their lives getting better and find more and more meaning to be with each other. Others, on the other hand, get together only to have everything go completely wrong, not just wrong in their lives, but wrong between them as well. Their very togetherness brings ill feelings between them along with misfortune. It is as if they are tied to a string of unfortunate events. Fortunately, one astrological measurement will show whether a couple is tied to the type of misfortune that has no end and no cure or if their association does not breed any extra ill into their lives.
Astrological indications reveal that your relationship is tied to misfortune. Your very involvement with each other is likely to create problems between you. The deeper you are involved, the greater the problems will become. Your relationship is probably going to be full of ups and downs. This can be very frustrating. The closer you get to the one you love, the more troubles you suffer. You may find that even when you have the best intentions for each other that problems arise out of the blue that confuse and frustrate you, problems that at that moment appear hopeless. The more you try to help each other at these moments, the worse it will get.
Your association with each other will especially cause problems in respect to taking proper care of the woman in the relationship. No matter how hard he tries, the man may always find himself unable to provide what the woman needs, or, at the first hint of the woman’s dissatisfaction or at the first hint of her saying, “no” about something the man may be unable to think of anything to do or say and instead just fall apart. Your association may also attract unfortunate events that disrupt the woman’s goals or which harm her health.
If you really do love each other and want to be with each other, then you will have to learn to disengage and separate when you get into these confusing or depressing situations. You will find that just getting away from each other for a short while will do more good than trying to work things out in that moment. The woman will have to pay attention to herself and make sure that she fulfills her needs and that her health is well maintained. The man will have to learn not to be to sensitive to the woman’s reactions to what he does and when he gets confused, he needs to take a step back to reorient himself.
Since your Respect measurement is high, you have an extra ability to avoid the unfortunate events alluded to and an extra ability to keep things good between you. The fact that you are able to respect each other will help you get through the difficult moments and to do the right things to make each other feel loved. If you do feel lost and confused with each other, after a short break the man will most likely be able to clear his head and do what needs to be done to make the relationship work. This puts you one step closer to avoiding misfortune.
Since you have an innate affinity for friendship, in accordance with the Friendship measurement, you are both better able to understand each other, accept each other and not pressure each other. This helps prevent difficulties arising between you and puts you one step closer to avoiding misfortune.
Since the man’s actions are more likely to be felt as comforting to the woman, in accordance with the Comfort measurement, there is much less chance of ill feelings arising between you and less chance for events to be seen as unfortunate. This puts you one step closer to avoiding misfortune.
One of the things that make it difficult for you to avoid the troubles alluded to is that you do not benefit from the Innate Sense of Purpose measurement and this can create gaps that misfortune slips into. You will want to make sure you really do have the same goals and the same agendas and that you are going forward with those goals. If you do not, misfortune will find you an easy target.
While the Moon represents a person’s nature and consciousness, Mars is the planet through which we assert what is in our mind and heart. For two people to have a harmonious relationship, not only must they have an innate attunement towards each other, they must also assert themselves equally, or else the relationship will become imbalanced and frustrated. The position of Mars in your horoscope, and not just in one of your Vedic charts but in three important charts, determines how much force you assert yourself with in your relationship. If both of you assert yourselves with relatively equal force, you will be able to work together to have a balanced and healthy relationship. If one of you asserts yourself more than the other, then the relationship will become imbalanced.
Your horoscopes show that the woman asserts herself with more force than the man. This can result in the man feeling pushed and nagged while also making it difficult for him to say what he wants in the face of the woman’s stronger presence. The woman may often feel like she has to do everything and that the man is just not doing what he needs to be doing, that he is really not into making things happen in the way that she is. When the woman says “no” to something the man may have suggested, her “no” may sound so loud in the man’s ears that he loses his courage and focus.
In order for this relationship to have a chance at working harmoniously, the man will have to really work on being present and focused in the relationship and the woman will have to practice patience and acceptance for what she does receive.
Relationships are rarely easy as we all bring our challenging personalities into our relationships. When it comes down to it, the right relationship is the relationship that we feel right about being in the way that it is. A relationship in which we love a person but hope for things to be different and to change, cannot really be termed the right relationship. It is natural for each of us to have our hopes and wishes and no relationship will fulfill them all, but if we can accept the relationship for the hopes that it does fulfill then we are on the right track to the right relationship. Further, if the hopes that the relationship does not fulfill do not become a source of damage to the relationship or do not cause us to be cruel to our partner, then it is the right relationship.
The Vedic compatibility focuses on this right type of relationship. The considerations it makes are those that determine if people can have this type of foundation together. If the five important measurements are all good, then the foundation for this type of relationship is there. The five important measurements are Respect, Wavelength, Obstacles, Misfortune and Assertive Pressure. Any measurement amongst these that is inharmonious will be a source of stress, difficulty and lack between you two. But that is not to say that it is the wrong relationship, if that is the price you are willing to pay in order to have that person in your life and if you are willing to make the payment with the extra work, then it may well be the right relationship for you. However, it is usually seen that any of these five being insufficient create stresses that are more than the average person wants to pay for their relationship.
Since one or more of these five measurements is inharmonious, this relationship may tend to support each person’s bad habits and issues and make it harder to find happiness with each other as well as with yourselves. The most difficult measurements to lack are the Obstacles and Misfortune. These usually become apparent early on in the relationship. Misfortunes are particularly painful and create huge ups and downs. Lack of Respect and imbalanced Assertive Pressure become more and more apparent after six months and can become very frustrating for both people. Poor Wavelength is the least immediately painful of inharmonious and can take years to take its toll until it makes people drift apart or feel drained. So if this relationship is lacking any of these five measurements, you will want to take a good look at your relationship and see what you are really willing to do in order to have it, it will certainly take more work and effort or a bit of extra compromise.
Since you both share the same relationship-centered asterism, only the above favorable points will be those you experience most in your relationship. The difficulties mentioned will be things that you will probably rarely or never experience. You will share a very similar outlook and attitude about things and will be able to to bring your lives together very harmoniously.
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.
