Sun Synastry

Synastry is the branch of astrology that studies the compatibility of any established relationship, be it professional, familial, romantic, marital, parental, friendships, or enmity. The easiest method to check the compatibility of this relationship is to observe the aspects formed between the planets of the horoscopes of both individuals involved in the relationship, placing the planets of one around the wheel of another. Inter-planetary aspects formed in the chart thus formed intensely impact the relationship under consideration, with each aspects accentuating the qualities of the planets involved.

When the Sun of a person falls in the chart of another, they may attempt to exert a level of ego or control over the other, mostly to further their ambitions. Any contacts or inter-aspects that the Sun forms with any other planet from the horoscope chart of the other is indicative of their growth potential.
