We at Cosmic Technologies (CosmiTec) are excited to bring you some very important and significant astrological divorce research results.
This time, however, the results do NOT come from our hands, but from the Netherlands.
The Dutch-based Equilibra Advice Corporation, a specialized astrological Corporation founded by Fred Opmeer, an M.D. specialized in Pharmacology, presented startling results for what perhaps is the first worldwide in-depth and largest research into astrology and divorce rates.
In his investigation, Fred Opmeer made use of the official data and information received from the Dutch Central Bureau of Statistics (CBS; Centraal Bureau voor de Statistiek) and consisted of all data of Dutch couples who were married on or before January 1, 2002.
The huge database of 3.2 million marriages was used to conduct the divorce research.
To keep the analyses manageable, a random test of 10% of the database was used.
Only the day of birth (not the time of birth) of the partners was used, the time was set at 12:00 pm MET with a place of birth based in the center of the Netherlands.
Other dates which were used were the day of marriage and when applicable, also the official date of divorce.
To analyse the divorce results, Fred Opmeer made use of the "event-history analysis" or "survival analysis."
After some data corrections (couples with huge differences in age, the marriage year and the legal modifications to the Dutch Divorce Laws) the final result of the divorce research study made it clear that couples who share more disharmonious (inharmonious, discordant, challenging) aspects than harmonious aspects have a 20% increase chance of divorce.
These results are impressive and highly significant.
This also confirms different astrological methods stating that any couple to experience a lasting love relationship or marriage should have more harmonious inter-aspects than challenging ones (we refer to the methods by Ron Bippus and Nance McCullough, among others).
Now, you will certainly ask: what are harmonious aspects because there's some controversy among astrologers about that.
In his divorce research study, Fred Opmeer has used the same inter-aspects and orbs that he uses in his groundbreaking and very reliable "Character-matching" method.
It's this set of aspects (and orbs) that brought the stunning and highly significant results.
He used the following orbs:
We are absolutely delighted to see that Fred Opmeer in his divorce research used quite realistic and narrow orbs, unlike research studies by other researchers that often use orbs as wide as 12° and beyond!
Harmonious aspects are:
Disharmonious aspects are:
If you want to check in a reliable way your chances of a lasting love relationship, consider the ratio between harmonious and disharmonious aspects.
You MUST have more harmonious aspects than disharmonious ones.
However, too much of a good thing is seldom good too and this is confirmed in this divorce research study also.
If you happen to have too much harmonious inter-aspects, the relationship may become boring and dissatisfying, eventually resulting in a divorce too in the long run.
So, you do need harmonious aspects, but also some challenging ones to get the relationship (and love) going (and growing).
A ratio of about 1.5:1 harmonious:disharmonious aspects seems a very promising result.
