💫 Understanding Your Partner 💫

Look up your partner’s full chart to begin to gain more insight into how it is they view the world. Perhaps you’re a Cancer moon, so lots of time at home and with friends and family is really what nurtures you and soothes your soul. You may think the same is true for those you date. But diving deeper to consider your partner is an Aries moon, you’d realize that too much time at home will make them feel confined – they crave freedom, independence, and new experiences! By understanding THEIR placements, you can understand what it is they need in a relationship and furthermore, if it is a compatible match.

For romantic relationships, you’ll want to pay special attention to their Moon sign (as this describes his/her emotional landscape), Venus sign (as this describes what he/she finds pleasurable) and Mars sign (as this describes their intimacy landscape). For business or friendships, give more weight to Sun, Mercury, and Moon.

💫 Understanding Your Connection 💫

If we want to really understand how two individuals will grow and mesh together, we look towards the full charts of each individual and how the two interact with one another. Synastry indicates how your planets are interacting with their planets. It sets the tone over the connection between the two of you and can influence how you feel within their presence. The synastry will tell the story of your relationship – its strengths, downfalls, tension points, and where it flows easily. It’s how your chart connects with their chart, and where your charts clash. It can be used as a tool to gain awareness of your union.

Synastry is a very complicated process, but luckily, NUiT has taken the guesswork out of understanding you and your crush’s cosmic connection! NUiT calculates your compatibility, giving you data-backed insights of the potential of the relationship in four sectors – romance, business, magnetism, and friendship. With its easy to understand numerical system ranking the connection on a scale of 1-100, even astrology beginners can log in to learn more about what the potential of the partnership can be. 

There are additional categories that allow you to supplement the relationship. Learn insights into communication and mental compatibility, kindness, and supportiveness, likelihood of surprises, unexpected change, intensity, competition and friction, shared creativity and intuitive compatibility and teamwork, productivity, and mutual motivation, of your friend, business partner or lover. This provides cosmic insight into what aspects of your relationship really flow and others that may need more attention. 

Rather than abandoning your relationship when getting a low score, the information can be utilized to simply provide information to the user on where the union needs more attention. If you know you and your partner have a 91 score in communication and mental compatibility, with a 37 in shared creativity and intuitive compatibility, you can be sure that a stimulating date watching a movie then discussing the subplots over coffee will be more suitable than a wine & paint night. You can use the information to strengthen the parts of your relationship that are cosmically aligned and to work on the aspects that may not be as strong. These scores are meant to bring insight rather than shut down potential relationships.
