An astrological report prepared for

Person 1, born January 10, 1975 and person 2, Born May 29, 1975:

Me and My Ex - What Went Wrong

Reveal the Hidden Forces Behind Why it Didn't Last

DESPITE YOUR HOPES, YOUR RELATIONSHIP JUST DIDN'T WORK OUT. 

WAS IT THEM, OR WAS IT YOU? 

WAS IT CIRCUMSTANCE, OR WERE YOU TWO JUST A COMPLETE MISMATCH FROM THE START? 

THE SHORT ANSWER IS, ALL OF THE ABOVE.
Each of you contributed at least a few less-than-desirable qualities to this relationship that made it difficult for you to get along.

While you were probably able to outline your lover's failings complete with bulleted points and subheadings, you may not have realized that some of your character traits brought out the worst in them.

That's not to say that all your relationship problems were your fault, any more than they were all theirs.

No two people are a perfect match; every couple has areas that need work.

But some relationships function better than others, and the stars are a good place to look for answers regarding the issues you had as a couple.

Forewarned might have been forearmed.

Friction, Differences, and Karma Meters

The Friction, Differences and Karma Meters: remember how perfect things seemed back in the beginning?

Or maybe you can't even recall those glorious early days, when the future looked rosy and the possibilities for your relationship seemed limitless.

What was it that broke the two of you up, anyway?

The answer to that question is complex and multilayered, to be sure.

Had you known what your relationship trouble spots were, then you could have been better prepared to take one of three routes; avoid them as best as you could, worked through them as a team, or decided it just wasn’t worth the trouble and move on.

Your Friction, Differences and Karma meters give you a quick, at-a-glance view of the strife in your previous relationship -- all the sources of irritation, stress and hostility that ultimately led to that final goodbye.

This information can help you come to terms with your breakup, but also make you aware of pitfalls you may encounter in the future.

The War Zone

Venus square Uranus

Wild Ride

Yours was the kind of romance that makes for great stories later -- in other words, it wasn't always easy. You and your lover were drawn to each other right from the start. It all happened so fast. One minute you were on your first date, the next you were on the phone to your best friend saying 'This is the ONE!' You fell into love so quickly that you didn't look where you were headed, and therein lay the problem. It's just that you chose yourself such a darned tricky, unstable sweetie; full of electric excitement, of drama and blistering, little-hairs-standing-up-on-the-back-of-your-neck passion. But as you no doubt found out, they also signified upheaval, disruption, a heaping helping of the wrong kind of excitement.Well, if nothing else, you had yourself one heck of a ride. If you were willing to hang on, accepting all the bumps and jolts that were sure to come your way, more thrills would have been yours. One thing you could say for your relationship -- it was absolutely never boring. You may decide that next time you want a little smoother ride.

Loved to Laugh

It was lucky for you that you and your mate could laugh, both at each other and at yourselves. That was a strong plus in a relationship that was sometimes challenging. You were impressed with your mate, and rightly so. They were generous to a fault, stately, wise, and larger than life. You tended to be just a bit egotistic, and your sweetie helped keep you grounded and sane, even as you encouraged each other to dream big and go after what you wanted. But it seemed at times that you were at cross purposes. Fate threw obstacles in your way, or each of you made choices that created chaos and friction. You got annoyed with each other too easily, each accusing the other of being self-centered, overconfident, so driven to meet the goals you'd set that you lost sight of the big picture. And you know what? You both had a point. You two could have been bringing out the best in each other, but instead you wasted your energy on silly disagreements. If you'd wanted to make this work, you should have stopped the fighting and started throwing your attention towards what you loved about each other. And laughed a little more. Because if you two had started laughing together, you could have survived anything. Humor is, after all, the best medicine.

Strutting Peacocks

What a couple of strutting peacocks you and your lover were! And like peacocks, you were magnificent, impressive, admired -- and rather disagreeable at times. Both you and your lover tended towards the big and bold. More was more for the pair of you, as you spent exorbitant amounts of money, time, and energy on the good life. The pair of you did everything in a big way, creating a display that was dazzling but death on your inner lives. You spent too much time trying to impress each other and outsiders, and the result was the Yorkshire pudding of relationships -- all gorgeous and golden on the outside, nothing but hot air on the inside.What would have brought balance back to this relationship was paying more attention to life's bread-and-butter issues. Making sure responsibilities were taken care of before the fun started. Not taking each other for granted; instead, checking in with each other often to make sure everything was on track. Curbing your tendencies for extravagance and indulgence, and turning your energies towards what really mattered: family, friends, a happy home life, and each other. There was a lot of warmth and energy between you, all you needed was time to appreciate it.

Saturn square Jupiter

Complementary

You and your sweetie were an unusual match, and there were ways it worked for you, as well as ways you were bugged by the differences between you. Most of your problems were connected to the schism between your personalities. You saw your lover as rather egotistic and indulgent, while you were seen as stingy and pessimistic. You were both right, to an extent, but there was another side to your differences; they complemented each other. Your lover's presence caused you to open up and laugh more, while you acted as a stabilizing reality check on your sweetie's worst impulses. Even so, knowing that didn't seem to help you get along better in your day-to-day interactions.One of the biggest problems you faced was your own insecurity. You may have viewed your lover as somehow more important or special than you, and it made you feel like you didn't have the right to expect an equal voice in the relationship. But your mate desired a partner, not a child to nourish and scold. You were every bit as worthy as your sweetie -- you needed to start asking for what you wanted, and putting in as much time on your own goals as your partner's. A little energy put in these directions would have yielded great rewards. With these lessons learned, you're in a good position to succeed in your next relationship.

Unstable, but Interesting

There's an old Chinese proverb that goes like this: 'May you live in interesting times.' On the surface it seems like a blessing. But you of all people could confirm that it can also be a curse. This partner who claimed your heart was exciting all right -- and completely unpredictable. You would come home at night to find that your lover changed the curtains in the living room or, oh, changed careers and made plans to move to Antarctica. You like excitement as much as the next person, but that was ridiculous. You two had a lot of trouble managing the day-to-day problems, because who had time to figure out what day to visit Uncle Fred in the hospital when you were arguing over giant life-changing issues?But you needed to roll with it if you wanted to make this thing work. You couldn't ask for stability from a live wire. Instead, you could have just enjoyed the passion and intensity that was the silver lining of the rather dramatic life you chose. You may not have had quiet nights snuggling on the sofa, but you would have had the kind of love relationship that made for great stories -- and great highs.

Jupiter square Neptune

Not All There

When you first met your lover you were attracted to the sweet adaptability you found. Here was a lover who would let you steer the ship, deciding where you went and with whom. Someone who would listen to your stories, sympathize with your troubles, support your dreams. You loved all that, but somehow it wasn't enough. Your partner was loving and sympathetic enough, but awfully insubstantial. You felt like you couldn't trust them to always be there for you -- your lover meant well but found it difficult to conform to plans, keep agreements, maintain boundaries. You felt like you needed something more solid and stable.It is true you faced many challenges in this relationship, but had your love been strong enough you could have conquered your difficulties. You didn't tackle your issues squarely or learn the art of compromise. If your lover bent to meet you halfway, you would have needed to bend likewise. You had to decide how you would keep your patterns from repeating. It would have taken discipline on both your parts, but with some time and practice these new patterns would have come more naturally. With this experience under your belt you'll have a better ideal of how to do it next time.

You Didn't See Eye to Eye

Sun opposite Venus

Discomfort Zone

Your love relationship wasn't always a very comfortable place to be, was it? Fits and sulks, arguments and deadly silences with much left unsaid in the spaces between verbal assaults. You laid the fault for this open warfare at your lover's feet, but think about it: Were you really the kind of mate you'd have liked to come home to? Were you sweet and loving or bossy and demanding? Did you long to hold your lover close, or bash a frying pan over their head? The going was rough that you finally gave up. Yet how happy are you, really, without this relationship that caused you such strife? There could have been much to gain if you were willing to do a little more work. And the first thing on your to-do list should have been an honest look at yourself. Were you dragging baggage from your past into the problems of this relationship? Were you tweaking your lover's insecurities because of your own? Try analyzing this relationship in terms of your past, particularly if, during the relationship, you had the feeling that you'd been there before. You're going to have to work out your psychological hang-ups now, or you risk repeating the same pattern again and again.

Frustration Station

You loved your sweetie. That was the first disclaimer you made when discussing your many relationship problems with your friends. But ooh, you just got so irritated! Your lover was apt to yak and yak, at inappropriate times -- you couldn't read a newspaper or watch a movie without being interrupted by a flood of chatter. Even more annoying, much of the babble concerned your lover's big plans and soaring dreams. At first it was cute, but then it wasn't. You got fed up with hearing about goals that would never be realized, dreams that would never come to fruition. Your lover was all talk and no action, and you were all about energy, movement and force. All the inactivity made you feel stultified and angry. If you were going to get along, you needed to take things slowly. Your partner viewed you as aggressive and kinda mean, and there was a reason for that. Take a good hard look at yourself. Were you a partner or a parent? You were often impatient and inconsiderate. You needed to think of your lover's feelings before you spoke and acted. Instead you let your annoyance color your dealings. You spoiled what could have been so very good. Remember what they say: Patience is a virtue. You'll be more virtuous in your next relationships, won't you?

Sun opposite Saturn

Missed Potential

In your heart of hearts, what you really wanted was a relationship that would last. You wanted to grow with someone, to have the freedom to keep changing across the continuum of your life and be assured that you had a partner that would roll with the punches. So wasn't it nice that you chosen this lover? Your sweetie was the strong solid type, a person who could make lasting connections and be loyal for life. You were both set up to make something beautiful -- so why did you stomp all over it?Stupid fights wrecked what you had. You know it, don't you? Yet if asked for an explanation of the friction between you, the two of you would probably blame each other. Your lover intentionally pricked your sore spots, kicking you when you're down. Wrong! Oh, so wrong! The real story was that your sweetie wouldn't let you rest on your laurels. The very best, and nothing less, was demanded of you. If you had learned how to start delivering instead of complaining, you'd have found that you and your special someone had an easier path. Next time, step up to the plate instead of whining to the umpire.

This Was Not Your Destiny

Mars quincunx Venus

It Was A Puzzler

There was something odd about your relationship. Something didn't quite work; the pieces didn't fit together. What was it? Was one of you more committed than the other? Did one of you have desires to stray? Something went wrong, and you were going to have to look at the problem truthfully if you were ever going to solve it. It's likely that the mismatch of intentions or emotions caused some friction between you. You may have felt as if you couldn't talk to your lover truthfully; as if you kept misunderstanding each other. You couldn't see clearly; you didn't know where your lover was at. Making it through your rough patches would have required both sacrifice and compromise. You were hoping to keep on keeping on the way you had been, blasting through life and love with ambition and speed. But this relationship required more in the way of introspection and calm. You had to be willing to give in to your lover in some areas. Giving a little more would have guaranteed that you got more in return, as both you and your lover relaxed into partnership rather than rubbing each other the wrong way. It is possible; next time you'll try a little harder!

This Was An Awkward Mix

A day late and a dollar short. Does that about cover it? There were so many good things about your relationship, but for whatever reason you couldn't quite seem to make it all hang together. You found your lover intriguing, oh yes, indeed, but you couldn't seem to get comfortable. There were awkward pauses in your conversation. You didn't get each other's jokes. You couldn't make that comfortable connection that makes staying together seem more natural and easy than splitting up.It may have seemed as if inevitable doom was in your forecast, but that wasn't necessarily so. Individuals can triumph over the obstacles that make the path of their true love rocky, and you and your sweetie could have been star-crossed lovers who persevered. What would have spelled success? A connection so strong that it made working a little harder well worth it. Did you feel you couldn't live without the love you shared? If so, you could have learned to be flexible. If you had taken an interest in your sweetie's passions and played down the things you didn't share, you would have found that things ran more smoothly -- eventually.

Past Was Made Present

Past indiscretions have a way of coming back, and yours rebounded on you. Your mate discovered something you wanted to keep hidden, and you felt exposed and insecure. What you feared was true -- your lover did think less of you than before. But what you didn't know was that the shift was due more to your secrecy than to what you hid. How could your mate trust you when you kept things hidden? You needed to open up. Reveal all the aspects of the situation. What were you feeling at the time? How had it affected your life? How had you changed since then?Opening up like this would have been quite uncomfortable for you. So you reverted to your usual pattern, pretending like nothing was going on while you buried your head in work. You feared rejection if your lover knew your true self. But you had to let some air into your dark closet. It was hard to breathe back there! You should have let your lover know what was up; explained the repercussions of your past choices, and allowed them to make choices about what to do next. It would have been scary being an open book, but you would only have moved forward by letting go. That is no less true today.

Maybe You Were Too Similar (or Not)

No conjunctions

Not Enough Glue

There's glue, and then there's glue. Elmer's versus epoxy, Velcro versus nails. Your relationship was bound by the easy-to-separate type of togetherness, not the wild-horses-couldn't-drag-us-apart variety. Now, don't misunderstand: This is not to say that there was not a strong connection between you. But you were able to take the occasional separate vacation; to enjoy your own interests without your partner feeling threatened; to be two distinct individuals who chose to hang out together. Compare this to the joined-at-the-hip, can't-bear-to-be-apart couple. Didn't you always wonder about them? What did they think would happen if they weren't together for an entire evening, much less a day or even a week?Separation was not a problem for you two; in fact, you may have done it by choice on a regular basis. After all, absence makes the heart grow fonder, and this was surely true of you and your partner. You took great joy in sharing your individual experiences, as well as in spending time together. If anything, you might have had to make it a point to schedule in time to be together! You may each have been involved in your own orbits that you suddenly realized that days or even weeks had gone by without you two sharing a full day together.You shouldn't have let that happen. You needed to discover the challenges of your relationship, which so often can turn out to be opportunities for growth and development. You two had chosen to be together, and likewise, you could have chosen to grow together.

Next Steps

I hope you have enjoyed the valuable insight, wisdom and guidance of this astrology report. You might be a little curious about astrology and perhaps wondering how an astrologer can know so much about you!

Astrology is a mathematical system. It's all about applying meaning to numbers, or more specifically, finding meaning in the movements of the planets around the Sun, as viewed from our perspective here on earth. These planetary movements are easily captured and recorded with measurements, calculations, angles and so on.

That's why astrology works so well with computers, whose programs are also based on numbers and formulas. In 'the old days' -- thousands of years ago, when astrology was first recorded -- those early astrologers had to painstakingly observe the heavens and catalog their observations for the next generation of astrologers to build upon. Thank goodness for the computer age! Now we can simply use computers to make those calculations quickly and pull just the applicable pieces of information. Now, astrology is instant, based upon thousands of years of observations obtained through careful methodology.

Interpretations of planetary positions are based in part on ancient Greek and Roman mythology, but your astrological report is unique, describing you and you only. Even in the case of twin siblings, their birth charts differ from each other's in at least a few ways. And besides, no one amounts to just a simple interpretation of their birth chart; everyone's personality is complex. Your astrological report leaves plenty of room for variations based on your free will, personal growth and transformation over a lifetime.

Just like you, your astrological report is unique. It’s generated online in seconds and provides you with instant insight at your fingertips. Whether you have a pressing question about your future or you just want some guidance and direction, now you can have it all -- in a fast, focused, all-about-you format.

You can choose from several different types to find the report that's right for you and your needs. Your natal report is all about you -- your unique characteristics, strengths, weaknesses, potential and so on. Compatibility reports analyze the connections between two different people, to see how well and in what ways they get along. And a forecast is based on where the planets are today and how they're affecting you, uniquely. Be sure to try a free sample of another report to find out more about you!
