Communication, A Vital Part of Every Relationship

communication vital part of relationships

We all know that communication is a vital part of every relationship, but do you really know the meaning of the word, communication.

According to the Merriam Webster Dictionary, the correct meaning of communications is: “the act or process of using words, sounds, signs, or behaviors to express or exchange information or to express your ideas, thoughts, feelings, etc., to someone else”.

What is doesn’t mean is just talking or texting to each other.

Most couples will tell you they talk to each other, but I have to wonder how many actually listen, hear or understand what the other person is trying to convey.

There are many ways to communicate, some good and some bad. Do you know the difference? The best way form of communication is always face to face, but even that can fail if you aren’t really listening, hearing or just paying attention.

Let’s take a look at some things that might hinder or cause a lack of communication.

Multiple Marriages in the Natal Chart

Can your natal chart show that you may have multiple marriages? What are the indicators, and what will be activated at the time you get married again? This can be seen in your chart!

I wrote an article at the beginning of the year outlining Jennifer Aniston’s chart and what was going when she married Brad Pitt. She has recently remarried, so it should be interesting to see if she had indications again that she would marry.

The Astrology of Divorce and Break Ups

Can astrology predict when a marriage or relationship may go sour or experience difficulty? Can an astrologer foresee a divorce?

For this question, I have to say in most cases yes. The reason is that everyone goes through cycles.

Transits and progressions to one’s chart bring that planet’s energy to the chart. This can have an impact on our experiences during that period of time.

Another thing to consider is the individual horoscopes as well as the synastry and composite charts between the two people being analyzed for potential divorce or break up.

Is He the One I Should Marry?

You have a great boyfriend, he’s met your friends, been home for the holidays to meet your folks, and now you’re embarking on the next steps of your journey together and considering long term commitment, marriage and family.

You’ve been taught through movies and books that you should “just know” and gracefully get on with the business of living happily ever after but in reality, this isn’t always the case. One of the most popular types of questions I encounter as an intuitive are those asked by anxious brides, grooms or people getting ready to get married are, “Is he the one I should marry?” and “how do I know if I’m making the right choice?”

Doubts aren’t  always a sign that your partner isn’t right for you, or that you will need to cancel the wedding invitations and fire the florist.  Doubts are simply a natural expression of our egos as we try to negotiate unknowns, changes and risks.

True Love Or Just In Love With The Idea Of Love

Christmas, New Years, Valentine’s Day are all holidays that seem to bring out the marriage proposals. Now with those holidays in our rear view mirror, it’s time to take the next step and get caught up in the frenzy of wedding planning, or is it?

Maybe I watch too many Life Time movies but it seems to me that not all the proposals were well thought out before they were made. In olden days, the prospective groom went to the father of the prospective bride to ask her hand in marriage before he actually proposed. Some families still have that tradition but for most it has gone by the way side. Fast forward about twenty years, the couple fall in love, you buy the ring and propose.

What I’m seeing more and more today are the way out there, over the top wedding proposals and I just can’t help but ask myself, are they saying yes because they really want to get married. From the looks on some of their faces it brings me to the conclusion they are totally caught off guard in front of a lot of people and they don’t want to embarrass themselves or the prospective groom by saying no.

Marriage and Your Chart: When will you Marry?

Did you know that your natal chart can give insight into any area of your life at any given time? Most of the questions that I get are of course, about romance and when it may present itself.

Others just want to cut to the chase and know, “Will I marry? If so, when?” Yes, your chart can show this!

As an astrologer, the first thing I would look at is the condition of your 7th house. The 7th house in astrology rules marriage or bonded relationships.

Six Question Relationship Check Up

It’s the beginning of another year and a time when many people are taking stock of their fitness, the health of their bodies, and pocketbook.

While it might seem more confusing or daunting to give our relationship a check-up than it is to get a check-up at the doctor’s office, checking in and assessing the health of a bond is just as important and it doesn’t have to be difficult.

Here are a few questions to help determine if your relationship needs some extra TLC or if emergency care is needed.

Is give and take in balance in my relationship? 

An imbalance of give and take in a relationship means that one partner often takes on the role of the giver who doesn’t get anything in return and the other person takes on the role of the taker who doesn’t give back.
