I believe the reason astrology exists is to shed light on misinterpreted phenomena and enlighten individuals to their inner dispositions. It’s critical for people to understand why something is happening in a particular situation because it strengthens the soul.
Twin Flames are a valuable phenomenon that brings fundamental change to the way we see the world in not solely an esoteric view, but also in scientific one as well.
When people understand the concept of twin flames, they understand the last two centuries of connections with what we call “karmic bonds.” In fact, the twin flames bond takes a relationship to a much more sophisticated level…
Let’s continue our travels:
An astrologer usually has a difficulty time answering if two persons are each others twin flame because the basic instruments are not helpful. Longitudanal charts as we know them are not very helpful if we don’t know some other important techniques.
First of all, we have to understand that according to what we’ve discussed, a twin flame is the other half of the soul when is splits entering the human kingdom through geminian influences. This means our soul splits into opposites and we have to find our other half.
In astrology, we are full of opposites; the chart itself is built through opposites. Aries and Libra, Taurus and Scorpio, Gemini and Sagittarius, Cancer and Capricorn, Leo and Aquarius, Virgo and Pisces. All of these are polarities that work among themselves. It is very important when we try to find our twin soul to share opposing planets with the other person. Astrologers and people usually try to avoid opposition because medieval thought used to believe it was a bad aspect. In fact, oppositions between two charts may create some conflicts, but they are very important when you want to have a relationship that really contributes to individuals.
Planets in opposition between two charts are very important when we try to trigger the twin flame relationship. We have to be very careful because we don’t just want the planets to be in opposition but also in contra-parallel. Only when two planets are in opposition and in contra-parallel can we talk about the possibility of a twin flame relationship.
The first criterion is opposition. The other criterion is a very important concept we call “Antiscia.” The degree when the planet has equal day-time is called antiscia. For example the antiscia of a planet in 21o of Taurus is 09o of Leo.
But according to theory twin flames are not based on similarity, so antiscia is not in reality the real point we look for because a person that has a lot of planets in our antiscia points has similarities with us, not oppositions.
The point that is in opposition with Antiscia is Contra-Antiscia. So a person with his planet in 21o Taurus has his contra-antiscia point in 9o of Aquarius. So when a person has a lot of planets in our contra-antiscia points this means that he is probably a twin flame for us.
At this point, we have to combine both techniques. We have to see if any planets are in opposition and contra-parallel at the same time but also to find if there are any connections with each other’s contra-antiscia points.
Of course there are other secondary things an astrologer should look at. First of all we have to look at whether or not the person of interest has planets in the water houses (fourth, eighth and twelth). Although the fourth house sometimes can give us information about whether or not the person found his “father” or “mother” and not his twin flame, for this reason we have to be careful with the interpretation. The reverse is also very important. If we have planets in the other person’s water houses then we increase the probability of a twin flame relationship.
Secondly we have to see if there are planets of the person who form aspects with our retrograde planets, especially Venus. A lot of people with Venus retrograde have high probability to meet their twin flame. Retrograde planets may sometimes be identified with karma but in fact if the theory of twin flames exists, then every time there is an incarnation, every time our soul happens to split our karma partners may be our twin flame.
The last thing we have to look at is on the Composite chart (the chart where we combine the two persons’ natal charts) is if our twelth and first houses have lots of planets. The most important thing is if there is a spark. As we said before there has to be a spark, a light between two people, a flame of passion, love and understanding that they have never felt before. Combining the emotions of the couple and the astrological influences we can easily understand if that is a twin flame relationship or not.
Modern psychology believes that human beings in a century of depression and loneliness try to find ways to believe in what they have lost. People usually don’t communicate anymore and they are alone. Relationships usually are short, do not involve intense emotions, and neither individuals gets what they want. People suffer from low self-worth, people who had destructive relations in the past and people with extreme romanticism as a way of living, try to anchor themselves from a lie. For modern psychology the concept of twin flame is a lie, a hope. A person needs to find another person to stand in his life. Usually persons that need so much to belong to another person, create this illusion because of their weakness.
But if this is really a delusion does it matter?
People who believe in God are statistically proven to handle disease, anxiety, depression and other bad feelings better. People who believe have increased probabilities to succeed in their targets. Faith for people is something that can move even mountains. No matter if the twin flame relationship really exists, for modern science it is important because it is people who believe and belong to the relationship make it real.
If two persons believe, then it is assuredly true; the difference between reality and illusion is always between behavior and actions on one side and theory on the other. I have seen twin flame couples who fascinated me with their deep devotion and understanding. Their relationship is a miracle especially in communication when they do not have the need to speak with words to understand each other and speak with their eyes.
The soul is a fundamental part of humanity. Ignore the soul’s needs and you are going to get lost. From extreme science to extreme metaphysics the key to happiness is always to find the balance among us and other people. Finding your soul-mate may be a little difficult, especially on a planet of seven billion. But even if you do not manage to find it, don’t forget that having any other kind of romantic affair is equally important. Sometimes fate needs us to learn from other people and not from our inner oppositions.
By searching for your twin flame, do not lose your inner love for every aspect of this life and do not lose thousands of beautiful love experiences. While twin flame is the triumph of uniqueness with another person, having a relationship with any other person on this planet is also very fascinating and generates a big and long path of wisdom and happiness. Don’t forget that the most important thing is not if the relationship we have is a twin flame but if it has the flame to make us different and better. Love is the ultimate weapon of spiritual alchemists, through love you can change a simple relationship to a golden union, the sacred union that we will talk about in another article.
Till then let love and your inner flame drive you to happiness.
