Excerpt from my latest Sasstrology post (please leave comments on the Sasstrology site):
"With all the planets, angles, Nodes, asteroids and various parts and points to consider, astrological interpretation can be overwhelming. What do you look at first? Does one influence cancel out another? Not all synastry connections and transits carry the same weight. Understanding the levels of importance is crucial to understanding what will have a major impact, and what will act as a footnote."
