Relationship Astrology: Synastry and Composite Charts with Lin Ewing

Sunday, February 23, 12:30 PM » 3:30 PM

SYNASTRY compares the horoscopes of 2 (or more) people in order to understand how these people relate to one another.

Whatever their purpose in coming together, marriage, business venture, friendship or partnership of any sort, we can see how their individual characters, personalities and horoscopes will interact. This gives us insight into the viablity, comfort, discomfort and success of their relationship as well as the specific areas between them that will need special attention.

We will look at the individual charts of the persons in the relationship, place their planets within each other's horoscopes and note how and where each of them impacts the other.

COMPOSITE CHARTS look at the separate "entity" that forms when 2 (or more) people come together in a relationship of any sort. The horoscopes of the people in the relationship itself combine to become this entity. By joining, blending and clarifying the blend of these energies we can see the relationship itself.

Please give your birth information and the birth information of the person with whom you would like to be compared and composited for discussion (if you wish) or the information for those you would like to investigate so that the instructor is able to provide you with copies of the charts at the class. We need for each person:

  • Month, Day, Year of the birth;
  • The Exact Time Of Birth as it appears on the birth certificate;
  • The City and State of the birth. (If not born in the USA please include the Country of Birth)

Beginning Astrology Level 1 with Lin Ewing

Monday, March 2, 7:30 PM » 9:30 PM

6 Mondays
March 2, 9, 16, 23 & 30 & April 6, 2020

This 6 session beginning astrology course is designed for anyone who wishes to learn and master astrology. It covers the fundamentals of astrology and provides a solid foundation for more advanced astrological study. If you know nothing about astrology but wish to learn, or if you already know some astrology but need structure to help you increase your skill in interpreting charts, this course will provide the knowledge you are seeking. There are no prerequisites for this course.

BEGINNING ASTROLOGY will teach you what astrology really is and how it works. You will learn:

  • the qualities and characteristics of the different signs of the zodiac
  • the mystical meaning of the symbolic glyphs of the planets
  • how the planetary energies emanate within the various signs
  • how all of this influences an individual’s horoscope

BEGINNING ASTROLOGY will give you the skills to understand not only the planets, signs and houses, but also how everything relates and interacts through the "aspects" between them. You will learn how to look at all of this information in an integrated manner so you will be able to interpret a natal chart to identify the characteristics, talents and challenges of the native. You will also learn to interpret how the transits (current positions) of the planets affect the individual at a given time. Understanding the transits will enable you to identify upcoming energy patterns; this helps you prepare both for difficulties and for opportunities, such as deciding when is best to do something - start a new venture, take a trip, make a move, make investments, etc.

This course also covers the spirituality of astrology, and addresses how the soul’s level of evolution affects what the native may or may not do with the chart with which he has incarnated. The concept that the chart is a roadmap of how the soul functions on the material plane is expressed throughout the classes. There are handouts/information given at each class meeting, and there will be a small amount of homework so that you have an opportunity to hone your skills.

When registering for the course, please email Lin Ewing at with your birth information. This will enable Lin to have your chart available for you at the 1st class so you can begin using your chart immediately to further your understanding of astrological concepts as they are working within you.

Birth information Lin will need:

  • Month, Day, Year of the birth
  • The Exact Time Of Birth as it appears on the birth certificate
  • The City and State of the birth. (If not born in the USA please include the Country of Birth)

$180/$150 early registration by February 24
