There are many Love Match websites out there. Some are silly that generates a random number base on the names of the individuals. The good ones are astrology reports that you have to buy. Aside from the birthday of two individuals, it requires more detail like the place and exact time of birth. I was looking for something casual but with structure and meaning. A precursor report with minimal input that visitors can get for free.
It seems like astrology is the way to go. There are many compatibility reports base on the zodiac or Sun signs. While doing this project, I discovered that the analysis should not be Sun signs compatibility only. Using a combination of Sun signs and planets is better.
To make a long story short, I stumbled upon the concepts of astrodyne, harmodyne, and discordyne from Course XVI Stellar Healing by C. C. Zain. The book is part of a course in Astrology by The Brotherhood of Light. Elbert Benjamine started writing the lessons in 1910 under the pen name C. C. Zain. During that time the computations were all made by hand. It was a shock to learn that such a procedure existed on an era that does not use a calculator. The method uses a look-up table to determine the values. You have to compute everything manually. One natal chart alone took five hours to complete. A couple’s synastry chart literary took half a day to calculate on that era.
The massive computational task is where the Love Match project becomes useful. In mere seconds you can get the score for a love match. I tested the algorithm by pairing birthdays from January 1, 1901, up to December 31, 2017. A constraint of 30 years was used to limit the age gap. The pairings generated a total of 408,245,769 birthday combinations. See the distribution graph below.
Here are some interesting facts about the statistics. The lowest score is -341 for a pair born on January 11, 1910, and July 8, 1931. On the positive side, the highest score is +358 for a couple born on March 3, 1965, and January 7, 1994. Notice the highest score has an age gap of 29 years!
It was a fun project to create. I encourage you to try as many Love Matches as possible. Start experimenting with your day of birth and find out your most compatible birthday. If you are a teaser, try sending a Love Match ninja page to someone who has a crush with somebody.
