For an introduction to Brian’s perspective on sibling relationships as shown by the chart, see his article here: The Astrology of Sibling Relationships—and How They Affect Us as Adults.
Donna Cunningham says: I’m very pleased to introduce my long-time colleague, Brian Clark, an internationally known astrologer and one of Australia’s most respected teachers and authors. He’s made a special study of the astrology of brothers and sisters and wrote an exceptional book on the topic, so I’m excited that he’s agreed to answer questions about it today.
How the Session Works: The process is the same as previous Q&A sessions here on Skywriter. Readers will pose questions related to the topic in the comment section. Brian will write his insights beneath them. We’ll continue until he’s answered as many of the group’s questions as he has time for.
What to ask: Brian will be focusing here on questions about the 3rd house or Mercury aspects as they relate to your sisters or brothers. The question should be about your own personal chart rather than someone else’s. Give the 3rd house sign and planet or your Mercury’s sign, house, and aspects, but not your birth data.
He also notes that it might be helpful for you to think about and include in your comment your sibling constellations, i.e. how many sibs? gender? position? and also if there are complexities, step sibs, half sibs, blended families, separation, death etc. And also to reflect on your birth order.
UPDATE: The questions are closed, but if you scroll down below this post to the comment section, you can see the questions and Brian’s answers. Perhaps one of them will be similar to your own.
