The Astrology Of Age Differences In Relationships

posted by Matthew Currie

The single subject area I deal with the most when doing a reading for clients is relationships. Sure, family relationships and boss/co-worker relationships often come up, but there’s nothing like romance to send someone to consult with an astrologer. One […]

posted by Matthew Currie

One of my former astrology students kept coming back to me, years later, trying to make sense of her often-confused love life. What puzzled me about this is that, despite my rantings in class, she’d always start with the composite […]

Astrology, Compatibility, Mercury, And Cowboy Monkey

posted by Matthew Currie

It’s kind of a cliche, but still true:  the key to a successful relationship is communication. And it’s interesting to notice that Mercury, the planet most associated with communications in astrology, is also the most gender-neutral of the planets. Ancient […]

The Astrology Of Sun Sign (Sort Of) Compatibility

A survey released in Australia recently reveals some surprising reasons why long-term couples break up. Okay, some of those reasons aren’t so surprising: physical violence being the biggest single indicator that it’s not going to work. But many relationships that […]

Astrology: Where Is The Love In My Birth Chart?

posted by Matthew Currie

Astrology, Morality, And Mary Kay Letourneau

posted by Matthew Currie

Astrology that does not incorporate the human experience is essentially useless. As much as I try to treat it like a clear-cut and objective science, those of us who live out the perils and potential of our birth charts know […]

Astrology, James Caan, And The Soul Mate Struggle

posted by Matthew Currie

Much of what I deal with as an astrologer has to do with relationships, and you probably won’t be surprised that the term “soul mate” turns up a lot in my various consultations. I was speaking with a client the […]

Astrology, Love, And The Ham Sandwich Effect

The Astrology Of Why Your Soulmate Situation Sucks

posted by Matthew Currie

I can’t tell you for sure whether or not it’s love that really makes the world go round, but it’s certainly a large part of an astrologer’s business. And, just as the average doctor gets to see a lot more […]
