Astrology is full of math. Now, I don't know about you, but math was not my favorite subject in school. And I LOVED school… Math problems had a way of "thunking" my brain shut (or was it "clunking?") in mere moments. It didn't matter what kind - Algebra with its X's and Y's - since when did letters become numbers, anyway? Geometry with its "planes" and funny triangles… And Calculus and Trigonometry with their… uh, you know, their… um, give me a sec… Oh - who can remember what the heck was in Calculus and Trigonometry? I sure can't! (I spent a whole summer doing nothing BUT Calculus and Trig and I forgot it the minute I passed the final exam - and to this day it's one of the great accomplishments of my life that I passed that exam!). But I digress… When I first began studying astrology almost nobody had personal computers. (Yes, Grandma Moses and I used to hang out…) We had to do all the calculations by hand. Fun, fun. Soon one of my teachers got a computer and would run charts for me for $5 a chart. (Let's just say you had to be a really good friend for me to get your chart for you…) Whew - that made things MUCH easier and more fun. You see, astrology is hard enough without having to do the astronomy or calculation side of things. Just interpreting what planets mean in what zodiac signs, and in what "houses" of the chart, and in what combinations, is heady enough stuff to make my brain thunk and clunk… Almost. Luckily - I LOVE psychology, and understanding behavior, and learning about how people connect and disconnect, and watching events unfold in harmony with what the charts indicated… This stuff is fascinating enough to hold my interest, and make my brain come alive. And, once a computer and the God's of software do the computing for me, I LOVE looking to the data of astrology. I truly appreciate the math. Seriously - it's sooooooo endlessly fascinating. For example, your chart is divided into twelve sections (called houses) and each "house" has a certain amount of energy or power, which is reflected by a number. A "high" number means that the part of the life that house represents will go well and come together easily. While a "low" number means - you guessed it - that the part of the life that house represents will NOT go as well and NOT come together as easily. (And yes, there's a "house" of partnership and the number there tells you a LOT about your love life…) In a relationship between you and a man, there's lots of math, too. And in my favorite compatibility technique, your relationship gets an overall score that's the reflection of how you'll "vibe" together. There are eight aspects of compatibility that are each given a number, and individually each number is not so "life and death" for the couple (though they can be fascinating). But the overall total number is a very important indication of the power of the relationship to be effortless, or not.
