I highly recommend Kaypacha’s Relationship Astrology Course. When I started the four-part series, I knew nothing of relationship astrology, and upon completion, I now have the confidence to add this genre to my astrology offerings. Through a very comprehensive program, Kaypacha uses real-life examples and leads his students through first Individual Charts, then Synastry, then Composite, and finally Transits. His humor and professional expertise keep learning interestingly, and the content is eye-opening.

He brings in the Evolutionary Astrology perspective of Jeffery Wolf Green’s work to give an in-depth view of the soul work we are all here to do individually and in relationship. His book recommendations were excellent!

Dorene Garvin

Beautiful classes. These very expansive and interconnected sessions for me, provide tools to dive into what may have driven past or attract new prospective relationships, as well as professionally on the path to becoming an astrologer.

Each class is on target in its own right, though the entirety of the package provides a fulsome relationship perspective from all angles. While Kaypacha’s courses are always structured with a focused topic in mind, his dynamic and fluid approach feels connected spiritually and aligns with the moment. It’s worth the investment, time and space!

David Galvin

I would highly recommend this course to anyone interested in going not only deeper but also reinforcing the Evolutionary Method of Chart Interpretation. This course, in its entirety, is chock full of information, examples, and resources to enable the astrologer to see and comprehend “the whole chart.”

Inside the modules lies the gold. Real people and relationship examples, from past to present and beyond, with Kaypacha weaving you through the maze of connected energy. Where on Earth can you receive +50 hours of astrological relationship mentorship?

Ron Clempson

I’m blown away by the enthusiasm and breadth of knowledge Kaypacha brings to his students! His Synastry module is absolutely worth your time and dime! The insight gained is truly a one-of-a-kind game changer, and I’m so grateful for the opportunity!

Susannah Johnson
The Astrology of Relationship felt like a return home to myself. The astrological expertise and emotional wisdom that was shared are almost impossible to put into words. I feel a more balanced inner masculine and feminine within than I’ve ever felt in my now 37 years on this planet. And deeper knowledge of Evolutionary Astrology.

I am forever grateful and honored to have joined the space Kaypacha created for us to feel seen and understood. So much love!

Britt Johnson

This workshop is like receiving the Rosetta Stone on your map. Reconnection to time and space in awareness of yourself to others. Instead of being the broken watch that is right twice a day, you have a working knowledge of the true clock of space and time.

Kaypacha is either the last old, old guy or a pioneer in a new way. Either way, he puts cool into astrology and spiritual understanding!

J Ewanek

The Astrology of Relationship workshop gave us the tools and the knowledge to get to know ourselves and our partners on a deeper level. As a result, we found ourselves softening into a greater sense of heart-felt connection and inner peace, bringing more beauty to our relationships and lives.

Paula & Carl

The Astrology of Relationships workshop was such a wonderful experience for me. Not only was I able to understand myself on a deeper level, but I was also able to experience developing new friendships with everyone in the course. This experience opened up new ideas, thoughts, and creativity and, most importantly, opened my heart to receive more love. Thank you all!

Rachel Mestas

Watching Kaypacha read each chart and walk us through the evolutionary interpretations was one of my most impactful learning experiences. His deep passion for the subject makes him such a wonderful, caring teacher and also a humble student – often reminding all of us that there’s always deeper to go and more to uncover.

A life-changing experience indeed!

Becky Borenstein

An intimate relationship is perhaps the best means to grow and evolve, open your heart, and explore the inner recesses of your soul.

Beginning with family, the people closest to us and who love us the most, reflect our own unconscious projections, hopes, dreams, and complexes. Love brings us both the highest highs and the lowest lows as we grow through each relationship to better know ourselves, our needs, desires, illusions, and weaknesses.

As your soul blueprint, your astrological birth chart can save you tremendous time and trouble as it reflects not only your innermost needs and desires but your soul history and current life intentions.

THE COURSE

In Module One of this course, we analyze the planet VENUS, which symbolizes our feminine, receptive nature, and describes what/who we are attracted to, how we make ourselves attractive and how we receive.

MARS symbolizes our masculine, active nature, which describes what we desire, excites our animal nature, heats us up, and how we go about getting it.

In addition to these two planetary bodies, we have the Sun (conscious purpose), and Moon (subconscious habit patterns), and the Moon’s nodes (past and future soul intentions). Conditioned by the signs they occupy, and combined with the aspects from other planets, these factors reveal your deepest soul nature, strengths, challenges, shadows, and partnership needs.

Knowing yourself will also help you know who can best support your growth as well as bring excitement and fulfillment on physical/sexual, emotional, psychological, and spiritual levels.


After completing Module One of this 4-part course, you will understand all the factors contributing to your experience of intimate relationships and partnerships.

🔹 Module Two | SYNASTRY

You will learn the art of chart comparison called synastry. The houses of your chart that your partner’s planets fall in, and the aspects they make to your planets will reveal profound hidden dynamics and soul intentions that will blow your mind!

This information opens up new doors of perception, enabling you to see and go to levels of understanding each other that could take years or not even happen at all.

🔹 Module Three | COMPOSITE

You will learn the tools to interpret the composite chart. This is the chart “of the relationship itself.” It is calculated by taking the midpoints of the planets in each partner’s chart, and it is used to understand what the relationship is all about, where its roots are in past lives, and what the intention is for coming back together this life.

This chart, which describes what the two of you will be and do in the world as a unit will also show your strengths and challenges as a couple. Once you understand the Composite chart, you can refer to the individual synastry charts to see who is bringing what to the relationship and gain even greater insight.

🔹 Module Four | TRANSITS

Our last segment will bring in the past, present, and future transiting planets. These timing factors show what areas of your life experience are activated and when. By following these transits in your chart, you will more deeply understand where you have been, are now, and going in the future.

You will also see when your partner is going through something by looking at the synastry charts and how, why, where, and when your relationship will go through transformation.

  • The Relational Nature of the Zodiac | Part 1

    Kaypacha’s approach to chart interpretation of the first six signs of the zodiac: Aries, Taurus, Gemini, Cancer, Leo, and Virgo. Kaypacha shares the nature of the sign, including a discussion of the element, modality, and its relationship to the zodiacal wheel. He then explains the relationship needs, approach, sexual nature, evolutionary intention, complexes, and patterns.

    Kaypacha includes the Sun, Moon, Mercury, Venus, Mars, and the Moon’s node through each one of these signs. With your chart and worksheet, you can take notes on your planetary placements, and begin creating your personal relationship profile.

  • The Relational Nature of the Zodiac | Part 2

    Kaypacha shares the teachings of the remaining six zodiac signs: Libra, Scorpio, Sagittarius, Capricorn, Aquarius, and Pisces. Woven throughout the explanations of the archetypes are the houses that these signs rule in the natural zodiacal wheel and your “relationship houses” (4-8).

    By the end of these two days, you will have a healthy grasp on what your soul intentions are seeking in relationship, what ways and types of strength, joy, and beauty you bring to your relationships, and what kind of “Astro-partner” is out there for you!

  • Planetary Aspects & House Positions

    Day Three covers the aspects of Venus and Mars to the outer planets. These aspects play a crucial role in understanding the deeper, underlying, unconscious complexes that surface through relationships. This session is spent going through planetary aspects directly involved with relationship.

    An emphasis is placed on Saturn, Chiron, Uranus, Neptune, and Pluto, as these represent soul forces beyond the ego’s control that push our evolution forward, sometimes in unpleasant ways.

  • Tying it all together.

    This session is spent answering questions and applying the knowledge to volunteers’ charts.

  • Required Reading

    • Skymates – Steven and Jodie Forrest (required)
    • Inner Sky – Steven Forrest (suggested, especially if you’re a beginner)
    • Pluto: The Soul’s Evolution Through Relationships, Vol 2 – Jeffrey Wolf Green (suggested)

    In addition, there will be numerous handouts and worksheets you’ll need to complete to get the most out of this course.

Now that we understand the relationship needs and indicators within an individual horoscope, we can take any two charts and analyze them to see the karmic (especially the good!) indications. Resolving old (often past lives) relationship issues and growing through new relationships are two primary means of soul evolution.

Astrology can help us see what dynamics exist within any significant relationship, whether old or new, what unique qualities each person brings to the relationship, and what is needed to fulfill its purpose.


Day 1: The Past

We study the synastry with regard to Pluto, the Moon’s nodes, and the Moon herself. These inter-chart aspects offer us a look into the history of the relationship, what has already happened, and what forms the basis of attraction/karma. Planets aspecting (especially conjunct) Pluto, the south node of the Moon, and/or the Moon describe the other person’s impact on the native in both positive and/or negative ways.


Day 2: House Positions

The houses of your chart occupied by another person’s planets and the houses of another person’s chart that your planets occupy indicate the field(s) of experience impacted by the planet in question. On day one, we looked at the house locations of Pluto, the Moon’s nodes, and the Moon. In this session, we analyze the Sun, Mercury, Venus, Mars, and the Ascendant to understand the relationship’s current life dynamics, strengths, and challenges.


Day 3: Synastry Aspects

The planetary aspects from one person’s chart to another provide a wealth of information that is even more specific regarding the “active energy” driving the relationship than the house positions studied yesterday. For example, what turns you on and what turns you off, how easy is the communication, and what will one person foster in the other or be irritated by? The answers to these and other compatibility questions arise through the study of inter-chart aspects.


Day 4: Tying It All Together

This session covers anything that was not attended in the previous sessions and answers questions that arose within the chat. Finally, we again use example charts from the student body volunteers (new ones, of course!) to demonstrate the techniques taught in the course. With the information provided in Part One and Part Two (with study and practice), you will be able to see, discuss, heal, and deepen the relationship between any two people!

Synastry and composite chart analysis are needed to understand what is going on in a relationship and when. The composite chart takes the midpoints of the planets and houses of two individual charts to create an independent chart of the relationship itself. Whereas natal birth charts are geographically located at a specific place and time, the composite chart is a theoretical chart having no particular date, time, or location.

It was first developed by John Townley in the 1970s and has proven to be amazingly useful in describing what two people (or more) do/achieve/experience when their energies are combined and when changes will occur within the relationship.


Day 1: Introduction

This day will be spent introducing the composite chart and walking through the steps of the New Paradigm Method of Chart Interpretation. Kaypacha will use several students’ charts (and their partner’s) to show you how to create the composite chart, what it means, and how to interpret it.


Day 2, 3 & 4: Learn by doing

Kaypacha’s motto is “learn by doing,” and this course will be no different! The composite chart shows the roots, intentions, and dynamics within a given relationship. The individual charts show who is bringing what to the relationship and causing/creating what is happening. By referring to both the composite chart and the individual charts, you get the total picture of what’s happening, who is initiating what, and how to best counsel the clients to help them navigate the changes within their relationship.

We will spend these days working with one relationship after another using both native charts and composite charts. Kaypacha will go step by step, looking at person A’s natal chart regarding relationship needs and desires, then person B’s. 

We will then access the composite chart by seeing where each individual comes from on a soul level and what they seek to evolve through the relationship. Finally, using all three charts together, we’ll discover the deepest subconscious and unconscious needs and the ego desires that will make or break a relationship.

Every relationship grows and changes from the early romantic phase to deeper, more committed, and transformative stages. These changes can be seen, predicted, understood, and assisted by analyzing the transits occurring in both the native and composite charts. Again, the transits to the composite chart will show when the relationship is going through a change. In contrast, the transits to each individual’s chart will indicate what they are going through personally.

To illustrate the difference, let’s use an example of transiting Saturn going through the 4th house of the composite chart. We know that this indicates obstacles, blocks, limitations, and responsibilities connected to the home, roots, property, and family of the relationship. This transit could mean anything from the couple buying a new home (taking on the responsibility of a mortgage) to an infirm in-law moving into the house, creating challenges, burdens, and extra work for the couple that could have a profound impact on their relationship life.

The transit of Saturn going through the 4th house of the composite chart will give the times of the onset and conclusion of the event/condition and information about how it will affect the relationship by the aspects transiting Saturn makes to the other planets/houses of the composite chart.

The transiting aspects occurring within Person A and B will tell us how the event/condition will affect them, why they’ve attracted it on a soul level, whether they are the protagonist or the antagonist (if there is one), and what outcome may be expected.

Remember that as transits to the composite chart indicate dynamics occurring in a relationship, they do not necessarily point to the cause. Many factors can contribute to a change in a relationship, some being outside factors that bring the couple closer together or lead to differences and challenges. Using the same example, Saturn going through the composite 4th house could indicate the real estate market dropping or loan interest rates rising on the couple’s adjustable-rate mortgage. These outside influences are not initiated by either member of the relationship or under their control but will still impact both of them and their future.


Day 1: Transits of the outer planets from Jupiter out to Pluto

We will review the transits of Jupiter to Pluto as well as the Moon’s nodes and the Progressed Moon. These slower-moving planets and points (less conscious and very powerful) indicate more profound, long-term changes occurring in the life of the native and/or couple.

We’ll look at their meanings through the houses and in aspect to the “personal planets,” Sun, Moon, Mercury, Venus, and Mars. Particular emphasis will be placed on transits that affect the “relationship houses and planets.”


Day 2: Learn by doing

We will use examples of individual student charts to demonstrate the principles and uses of the transits learned on Day 1.


Day 3: Tying it together

We will look at student relationships, including transits to each of their personal charts and the composite, just as an astrologer would for a relationship reading.


Day 4: Conclusion

Q&A session for questions you may have regarding any part of the course. Depending on the number and depth of the questions, we may have time for another example or two of a relationship analysis using the techniques we have learned together.

Kaypacha will use Composite (Midpoints). This type of composite chart takes the midpoints of the planets and houses of two individual charts to create an independent chart of the relationship itself. 

It was first developed by John Townley in the 1970s and has proven to be amazingly useful in describing what two people (or more) do/achieve/experience when their energies are combined and when changes will occur within the relationship.

Evolutionary Astrology embraces paradigms and methodologies which specifically measure the growth of the soul from life to life. These methods invariably focus on the planet Pluto and its relationship to the Moon’s nodal axis. While it is composed of a set of specific formal methodologies, evolutionary astrology is ultimately characterized less by a technical approach than by a set of philosophical principles defined by natural law. Different evolutionary astrologers may use somewhat different interpretive methods, but they can always be recognized by a devotion to the following core perceptions:

1. An acceptance of the fact that human beings incarnate in a succession of lifetimes.
2. An acceptance of the fact that the birthchart reflects the evolutionary condition of the soul at the moment of incarnation.
3. An acceptance of the fact that the birthchart reflects the evolutionary intentions of the soul for the present life.
4. An acceptance of the fact that the circumstances of the present life, both materially and psychologically, do not arise randomly, but rather reflect the evolutionary intentions and necessities of the soul.
5. An acceptance of the fact that human beings interact creatively and unpredictably with their birthcharts; that all astrological symbols are multi-dimensional and are modulated into material and psychic expression by the consciousness of the individual.
6. An acceptance of the fact that human beings are responsible for the realities they experience, both internally and externally.
7. A respectful intention to accept and support a person seeking astrological help, no matter the evolutionary state in which such an individual finds himself or herself.
