What Planet is Your Relationship on?

Written by Elizabeth White

If men are from Mars and women are from Venus, what planet is their relationship on?

John Gray's bestselling book used a planetary analogy to understand relationships. It proved very popular as a way of understanding and interpretingrepparttar behaviour patterns that men and women display.

Astrology also uses planets to understand and predict character traits and behaviour patterns. It is an extremely effective tool for analysing relationships. Venus and Mars are notrepparttar 122068 only planets looked at, although they are important. In total there are ten planets to consider and 12 different signs that each planet could be in. This gives a very high number of possible combinations, which can lead to an insightful and detailed analsis.

One ofrepparttar 122069 reasons astrology is such a useful tool is its neutrality. By describing a relationship astrologically, a distance can be achieved. Difficulties then become a shared problem which could be resolved through co-operation. Identifyingrepparttar 122070 problem as 'We have a Mars opposition' is a much more neutral way of saying 'We argue allrepparttar 122071 time' or even ' Why do you always argue with me?' What's more, astrology can even help to identifyrepparttar 122072 timing of both good and difficult times. Knowing that things will get better can dissolve a lot of tension.

In any relationship there will be combinations of harmonious and challenging aspects, but there will often be a way of relating to each other that seems to work most ofrepparttar 122073 time. It becomes a habitual way of interacting,repparttar 122074 line of least resistance. Sometimes one particular planet provides a dominant theme forrepparttar 122075 relationship. In effect, it isrepparttar 122076 planet on whichrepparttar 122077 relationship is based.

It could berepparttar 122078 moon, signifying that emotional rapport and domestic compatability arerepparttar 122079 foundation on which it is based. Or it could be Mercury,indicating that both partners are onrepparttar 122080 same wavelength, can communicate well with each other and enjoy chatting or even writing to each other. Or perhaps it isrepparttar 122081 Sun, suggesting compatability at a deep level and that fundamental values and ways of approaching life are in harmony.

"Photos your photographer won't take at your wedding....unless you ask for them!"

Written by Bill Collins

It has been my experience, with 40 years as a wedding photographer, thatrepparttar most forgotten people when it comes to photos at a wedding are oftenrepparttar 122067 individual parents ofrepparttar 122068 bride and/or groom.

Most photographers will be sure to includerepparttar 122069 parents in photos withrepparttar 122070 bride and groom, but most will never think to inquire about doing groups ofrepparttar 122071 individual dads ofrepparttar 122072 bride or groom with all his brothers and sisters who are present atrepparttar 122073 wedding. And of course,repparttar 122074 same is true withrepparttar 122075 individual moms ofrepparttar 122076 bridal couple, too.

While you're getting these photos taken, be sure to include any parents and grand-parents of those brothers and sisters that are there, too, to capture their entire core family group in photos.

A wedding is almostrepparttar 122077 perfect place to take these kind of photos withrepparttar 122078 individual parents and their siblings. Everyone inrepparttar 122079 families has gathered forrepparttar 122080 big event, many times from far flung regions ofrepparttar 122081 country.

Their child's wedding may well berepparttar 122082 first timerepparttar 122083 brothers and sisters have gotten together in years. It may be many years inrepparttar 122084 future before they are ever together again. Ifrepparttar 122085 opportunity to take these group photos is passed over because nobody thought much aboutrepparttar 122086 importance of this fleeting opportunity, then those photos may end up never being captured. These photos often turn out to berepparttar 122087 most important and most appreciated of allrepparttar 122088 photos I take regularily atrepparttar 122089 wedding.

I'd be willing to bet that less than 10 percent of wedding photographers plying their trade today know to get these photos for you. You will have to specifically ask for them to be taken, or they just won't be done!

Other important people that most photographers will probably overlook photographing for you atrepparttar 122090 wedding, unless you give them your written photo request list, arerepparttar 122091 bride and/or groom's god parents, groups ofrepparttar 122092 bride and/or groom's co-workers, high school friends, youth camp friends, fellow fraternity and sorority members, fellow sports team members for high school or college.

The one thing no wedding photographer can do is look at a room full of total strangers and figure out how they interlock with each other just by looking! I gave up trying to do that after photographing my very first wedding 40 years ago! Now I send each bride an email beforerepparttar 122093 wedding requesting exactly this sort of information, so that I don't end up missing anyone of importance torepparttar 122094 bridal couple on their special day.

You will want to see to it that your wedding photographer is thoroughly armed with this often overlook information, so that they will get these photos for you. Remember, your wedding photographer can't read your mind when it comes to who among those present on your wedding are important to you and need to be photographed with you.
