Love Astrology : The Balance of Assertiveness in a Relationship

love astrology 13Contact Michael Conneely at for a skilled and invaluable relationships compatibility reading.

My readings always combine both western with Vedic Astrology. They are always geared to the highest insights and also to healing and empowerment. They can be linked to healing modalities.

Vedic Astrology has a quite sure and ancient system of compatibility assessment called the Ashta Kuta system. This is never to be used in a simplistic legalistic way, of course, and I provide a full and very highly qualified analysis and assistance.

And a most important principle in my compatibility readings is one of the many features of the Ashta Kutas system, namely Assertive Pressure.

Vedic Astrology DOES actually provide an invaluable measure of the couple’s relative assertiveness – and ideally it should be balanced.

This very special feature of Vedic Love Astrology is called Kuja Dosha or Manglik.

Years ago I did a blog post on Sylvia Plath’s relationship with Ted Hughes, and it emerged that he was five times more assertive than her – and sadly she put her head in a gas oven!

The greatest disruption to marital harmony is quarrelling. So often this comes from the Mars balance or imbalance between the two people in the relationship.

As long as the pressure is equalized the relationship can be maintained and can be constructive.

If, however, Mars assertiveness is less in one person’s horoscope than the others, then the person with less Mars assertiveness gets abused and eventually has their self-esteem or self-worth trashed and the relationship will not be constructive. Their timidity, lack of aggressiveness, etc. can actually bring out the worst in their partner. The important thing is that the pressure of Mars assertiveness is balanced.

I look forward to working with you. Contact me for a relationships compatibility reading. See the range of linked healing modalities we offer.
