© 2008 AstroGraph Software, Inc.The composite chart represents the fusion of energy that two people create when they come together. It is a third being. Like a child, it inherits qualities of both parents, though it has a life all its own and exists independently of either of them. The following interpretations should be regarded as being for the relationship itself, taken as an independent entity, as this relates to the meaning for each individual within it.
The Relationship Report for two individuals applies to any type of relationship. It focuses on the relationship itself, rather than on the individuals who make it up. First a composite chart (mid-point chart) is created. The composite chart represents the fusion of energy that two people create when they come together in relationship. It is a third being. Like a child, it inherits qualities of both parents, though it has a life all its own and exists independently of either of them. The following interpretations should be regarded as being for the relationship itself, taken as an independent entity.
In the following report, each planetary placement and aspect is examined to reveal the basic qualities of your relationship, with the most important factors described first. Please keep in mind that these descriptions are not meant to put limitations on the relationship, but merely to describe its inherent tendencies. Challenging aspects can become the greatest strength of a relationship if you can both learn how to successfully navigate those issues, with good communication between you playing a vital role. For definitions of astrological terms, please refer to the glossary at the end of this report.
SeesawYou have the planetary pattern called the 'seesaw' type. With your planets divided into two distinct groups, you are very balanced in your outlook, always being aware of both sides of an issue, always able to compromise between opposing points of view. In this way you are quite similar to a Libra personality.
The Sole Dispositor of your chart is
Composite Venus in Taurus (1° Tau 14')The Sole Dispositor helps form your core personality, it ultimately rules all the other planets of your chart:
The placement of Venus in the composite chart reveals the area of your shared emotional focus and love and where mutual enjoyment and benefit lies.
The following paragraph emphasized:
Composite Venus in Taurus (or the second house) indicates that there is a solid basis of good will and financial stability between you. Your relationship thrives on shared values and a mutual appreciation of art and beautiful surroundings. If you have a communal space of any kind it is likely to be elegantly furnished. In a romantic relationship, this placement symbolizes a strong need for commitment and for creating a pleasurable life style together. Your love is earthy, grounded and long lasting. It is very likely that you will own your own home or property at some point in time, should you remain together. You like to entertain and show off your possessions and your living space. Just be careful not to let your appreciation of the finer things of life distract you from the internal beauty of the love you feel between you. As a partnership, you do well in investment or real estate You value material things and excel in the appraisal and exchange of these things, and indeed with your finances generally. You have your feet very much on the ground in these matters. You also value art for art's sake, and will always be able to take an abiding sense of enjoyment from music and the arts.
T-Square, focal planet SaturnYou have a T-Square in your chart. With this planetary aspect pattern, in which three planets or conjunctions are in square with one another, you have a high degree of motivation and drive. Your energies are most easily and habitually expressed by the energy of the focal point, the middle of the T-Square. You may also compensate for overdoing in the area of life represented by the focal point, by leaning toward the empty pattern element opposite the focal point, seeking to balance your activity. The lesson of this planetary aspect pattern is in learning to use your considerable energy wisely in the pursuit of your true goals. There is great tension represented by the focal planet or planets in your chart, where conflicting parts of your personality attain their focus and peak of energy, and you may observe compulsive behavior in the area of life represented here.
Saturn in the composite chart reveals the area of your shared experience where you will encounter limitations and build long-lasting success through trials of accomplishment.
Saturn in the Twelfth House (or sign) makes for an odd match, bringing a blockage or a concentration of energy to a power that is as vast and diffuse as the ocean itself. There may be a strong sense of hidden emotional currents between you that will bear further exploration in order to bring them to more conscious awareness. You also may find that you possess a joint focus on the mystical side of life. In a romantic relationship, you may trigger in each other, or help elucidate in each other, the feeling that life is too hard, or that it is beyond your conscious control. You two can be moody and introspective together, or simultaneously compassionate and sympathetic to each other's problems, and to the problems of those who cross your path. In the context of this relationship, you possess in concentrated form the urge for spiritual evolution that is present in all of us, and which requires detachment from the personal self in the quest for mystic union with all mankind. You seek stability in unusual ways with this placement, through the mastery of detaching from a need to rely on convention. You might to watch for a shared tendency to lapse into resignation or conversely, to try too hard to achieve control. Your true path of your partnership lies in a journey toward mystical transcendence rather than in the more mundane life of worldly events.
Composite Saturn in Aquarius (or the eleventh house) indicates that in your relationship there may be a blockage or a concentration of energy around socializing in groups and relating to the larger community. This is likely to become an important focus, and over time may create a powerful bond between you. You also have a strong goal orientation as a partnership. In a romantic connection, you will always have a clear idea of where the relationship is headed. There may also be difficulties that you encounter together in relating to groups. This relationship can exacerbate problems that you each have in feeling as though you fully belong to a particular group, or you may draw back from the circles in which you participate together from a fear of not being fully accepted. On the other hand, this placement of Saturn can also serve as a bridge between you, making a larger whole out of the amalgam of two kindred souls, and enabling you to make your way to higher states of awareness regarding the world around you. One of the main lessons of this relationship is to transform a narrow view of social acceptance on a personal level into a broader vision, one in which you both can meaningfully participate in creating a sharing society that has transcended the current level of materialism.
Yod, focal planet MoonYou have a Yod planetary aspect pattern in your chart, also known as the 'finger of God'. This pattern consists of two different planets forming inconjunct aspects of 150` to a third, or focal, point. Usually there will be a marked emphasis on the area of life represented by this focal point, which may be one planet, or two or more in conjunction. You may have physical or psychological problems associated with the expression of the energies of the focal planet or planets, creating a subtle form of tension in your life. The key is adjustment. Your lesson is to transform the expression of these energies along more positive lines.
The placement of the composite Moon defines the core emotional focus of your relationship. It indicates the most sensitive area between you.
The following paragraph emphasized:
With composite Moon in the First House, your relationship has a strong emotional basis. You and your partner may feel an almost fated sense of connection. You keenly feel each other's emotions and simultaneously enjoy the freedom to speak very directly and spontaneously in each other's company. In a romantic involvement, you likely experience a high degree of mutual contentment and emotional fulfillment. You may each feel that an evening in with this person can be as exciting and enriching as an electric evening out on the town with most other people. The shared emotional world that you create and journey through together becomes a universe of all to itself. With this degree of energizing communion and shared mutual enhancement, you may only need to make sure that you two don't forget about the rest of the world altogether. With such a high degree of emotional connection with your partner, it may be difficult to maintain objectivity. You benefit when you make time to enjoy this special and wondrous connection, and also learn to make the most of your independence from it as well.
Composite Neptune in Scorpio (13° Sco 05')
Composite Neptune in the Eighth HouseNeptune in the composite chart reveals the area of your shared experience where you will encounter idealization and nebulous spiritual feelings that will lead you to self-discovery.
The following paragraph emphasized:
Composite Neptune in Scorpio (or the eight house) brings out great personal and spiritual magnetism in each of you as a result of your association. You share a subtle intuition and an unusually clear ability to see into each other's depths, although there may also be a tendency to see each other somewhat through rose-colored glasses. Shared finances may also be subject to a form of idealism or even illusion. You may become more interested in otherworldly affairs, such as psychic matters or occult studies, than the everyday, or find that you share a love of sensuality and luxury together. With this relationship also, you may experience confusion over the power and/or sexual dynamics that come up between you. It may benefit you to put some extra attention into thinking and feeling through these sensitive issues. A process of spiritual transformation may take place in each of you as the relationship matures. You benefit from applying greater clarity to your shared values and to your intimate connection.
Composite Pluto in Virgo (10° Vir 28')
Composite Pluto in the Seventh HousePluto in the composite chart reveals the area of your shared experience where you will encounter your mutual drive for power and which will be transformative for the relationship.
Pluto in the Seventh House (or sign) gives your relationship an intense focus on satisfying your individual needs and desires by pairing up with each other. There may be an almost fated sense of connection between you; that you have come together for some powerful reason. In this relationship, you have a calling to learn all about the nature of your partner's needs and expectations, and there may also be power issues to contend with as one or the other unconsciously tries to dominate. As you sort things out with each other, you will transform yourselves around the issues of balance and control. In a romantic relationship, this transformation toward balance may at first manifest as an unconscious acting out of traditional roles. As you begin to resist playing out old patterns with your partner, a powerful love/hate response may arise in either one of you. Getting to the point where your will becomes harmonized with your partner takes time, but eventually the two of you will develop the ability to at least partially begin to "act as one," as power struggles give way to shared love and mutual respect. Gaining the courage to begin to confront these patterns becomes the challenge. You benefit when you allow time for shared reflection when your needs are not being met. A great deal of self-knowledge will be generated through your discussions around the issues of power sharing versus unilateral control once you can learn to really hear each other.
Composite Pluto in Virgo (or the sixth house) correlates to a relationship where there is a need to sacrifice to the other and to the relationship. As a partnership, you may also experience a strong desire or even a compulsion to be of service to the general good or to others that you encounter. You may find you are working through very deep-seated unconscious dynamics of being truly helpful and available to others. In a romantic relationship, in order to prevent power struggles that inevitably play out within the issues of sharing and service to each other, it is important that you carefully turn the light of consciousness onto the working dynamics of the relationship. In spite perhaps of a culture that does not encourage it, you benefit when you develop an ability to mutually acknowledge the power dynamics at play, and to begin to cultivate a very real and sincere humility, or take the time to access built-up and unresolved emotions within you, and just let it be. It can be very helpful when you become aware of the compulsion to create crisis, and take time out from the relationship in order to practice deeply forgiving each other from this, and possibly other, lifetimes. You may have as a survival instinct for the relationship a mutual desire to bring integrity and expansion into the area of shared service and to confront any limitations within you that prevents this from happening. When you work together for greater individual consciousness in this area, you benefit not only yourselves but also others that you come into contact with, as you move toward a more conscious and freely given act of sharing.
Composite Jupiter in Pisces (6° Pis 44')
Composite Jupiter in the Twelfth HouseJupiter in the composite chart reveals the area of your shared experience where you will find mutual good fortune and faith in positive outcomes.
The following paragraph emphasized:
Composite Jupiter in Pisces (or the twelfth house) gives you a quiet and unassuming relationship that grows very powerfully with emotional tending. You value being good and kind, and these values are magnified by your relationship with each other. You also tend to be considerate, friendly and easy-going in the context of this relationship. If you are business partners, you likely need to feel an emotional sympathy in order for your work to be satisfying to you. Together, you have your own personal code of conduct to which you are true, no matter what public opinion may be, or convention may dictate. In a romantic connection, as a couple you are likely to be fond of cinema, or other imaginative flights of fancy. There is some danger of escapism. As a partnership you tend to work behind the scenes, and do not seek personal glorification from your actions, but are content to do what you do because it is helpful to other people. You may jointly suffer from being overly sensitive to the needs of others, or seek to retire with each other from the casual cruelties of the world at large.
Composite Uranus in Virgo (2° Vir 26')
Composite Uranus in the Sixth HouseUranus in the composite chart reveals the area of your shared experience where you will encounter unusual and unexpected circumstances and where the relationship benefits from lack of structure.
The following paragraph emphasized:
Composite Uranus in Virgo (or the sixth house) emphasizes a clever and enthusiastic working team, original in thought and action and not comfortable with routine. You two are likely to share a scientific and analytical mentality. You tend to need to experience variability in your joint routine, and prefer to work from a sense of inspiration rather than demand. One or the other of you may experience health problems when the relationship becomes stressed, since Uranian energy can be fitful in its application. You may also experience difficulty with keeping things in order, emotionally and physically, during such times but this can be overcome through joint persistence. And while stress might cause a certain upheaval in this relationship, it will not tend to interfere with the unusually deep-seated support system that stands ready in place in this relationship. You two benefit from transforming your original creative impulse into a more long-lasting and concrete result through concentration and technique.
Composite Chiron in Pisces (8° Pis 31')
Composite Chiron in the First HouseChiron in the composite chart reveals the area of your shared experience where you will encounter patterns of wounds and deep connection and where eventual healing and empathy will occur.
Chiron in the First House (or sign) indicates a relationship that provides an opportunity for the two of you to face and heal deeply held wounds with regard to your vital force to be and to initiate within the relationship. With this placement of Chiron, your very sense of the relationship may be threatened by disturbing realizations and painful memories. Together, you may work through pain that arose from feeling belittled and put down, rather than encouraged, by the significant adult figures around you in your formative years. Within this relationship you may encounter and overcome obstacles that prevent yourselves from reaching your full potential. You may find that in this relationship, you operate more from a fear of failing than from the expectation of success that would breed confidence for further achievement. You may find yourselves sacrificing your own goals to the goals of the other, or to those around you, because they seem somehow more important or at least deserving of priority treatment. Either one of you may feel a keen lack of achievement in your own life, and compensate by trying too hard to help others, putting yourself in the background. As long as these relationship patterns operate more or less unconsciously, they are difficult to overcome, so the first step in surmounting them is to become more conscious of what's going on inside. Become aware of your own pain. Acknowledge and discover more about what exactly went on in past relationships to make you both feel so resigned with your present abilities in this one. At that point you can begin to come out from behind your painful experiences and really show yourselves to each other and to the world around you. With a more conscious understanding of your own dynamics, you can begin to help others in how they deal with similar issues, transforming your false sense of vicarious achievement into a strong center of true friendship.
Composite Chiron in Pisces (or the Twelfth House) indicates a relationship that provides an opportunity for you both to face and heal deeply held wounds regarding your vital force to be at home in the world of physical manifestation. In this relationship, you may notice places where you feel alienated from rest of mankind, and more at home in a world of fantasy than in what you laughably call "the real world". Talents may arise that come from beyond this world, and you may discover renewed passion for music, poetry, or spirituality. You may be reminded of painful episodes from early childhood that drove you into a world of your own. You have likely come to be quite at home in your inner world, and your challenge is to take advantage of this relationship to come out with style and dignity, with your inner cosmos intact. Again and again, when you attempt to be a part of it all, just like everyone else, you find it doesn't quite work. You may work with other people, helping them to be peaceful and comfortable in connecting their own lives to a higher truth, without ever really getting it yourself. Of course one is tempted to blame oneself for this sort of failure to connect. However, if you can examine the deep emotions associated with withdrawal from the world you can begin to operate from a feeling of wholeness that leads you to make your own true way. As you get in touch with the part of yourself that has been carefully hidden away, defended from the pressures of consensus reality, you can come to a sense of peace with your darker, more hidden self. As your relationship matures in this process of integration, you will both find a way to be a part of the world at large, to participate and share in its wonders and its disasters, without giving anything up. This difficult transformation is vital to your emotional health and well being, and makes it possible for you both to eventually reach out to others as well and help them integrate their shadows into similar wholeness.
Sun, Moon, Rising Sign Features
The composite Rising Sign is the image that this partnership presents to others and characterizes the nature of the relationship.
Composite Pisces rising partnerships orient toward the idealistic and sensitive. In your relationship you may come across as friendly and likable, and yet you can also be very moody and introspective, and not entirely at home in this world. Pisces is a watery sign, concerned with subtle emotions and secret mystical depths, and there is likely to be an undercurrent of emotion between you that is hard to pin down. Your ruling planets are Neptune and Jupiter. You may find that you are dreamy and full of imagination as a partnership, and that you bring these qualities out in each other. You also may find yourselves easily influenced by those around you. In a romantic relationship, you are very sensitive to each other's moods and may feel an almost psychic connection with each other. You might need to be sure to clarify your assumptions in some cases, since you intuitively feel that you know where the other one is coming from without asking, and you could be wrong. Together, you share an artistic temperament, and a spiritual strength, even while you may simultaneously have a hard time in making decisions. At its best your relationship generates true compassion and orients you to love and understanding of humanity at large, and to better serve the needs of all creatures.
Composite Sun in strong trine
(within 3.1 degrees) with AscendantThe planetary energies flow smoothly; the connection is easy and beneficial.
This aspect between the Composite Sun and Ascendant signifies a relationship that is strong-willed and generous in regard to the impact that it makes in the world. As a partnership, you are likely to be dramatic and assertive, also creative, self-confident and perhaps a bit self-indulgent. You are a mutual fan club for each other. When you entertain or make a social impact as a couple, you expect to be the center of attention, and often are. Your relationship has great energy and staying power that goes a long way to ameliorating any other deficits that might exist. The prospects are excellent for your partnership, since you are open to new experiences and to the world around you, while staying centered as a unit.
Composite Jupiter in strong conjunction
(within 0.9 degrees) with AscendantThe strongest blend of the energies represented by these two planets.
This aspect between Composite Jupiter and Ascendant signifies an optimistic and growth oriented relationship, with high ideals and good vitality. As a partnership, you are spiritually motivated, and possess a quiet strength which is invariably helpful to others and which takes you far in the world. This is an excellent aspect for success especially in a business relationship, or in a romantic relationship or friendship that has an additional career orientation. As a partnership, you might only have to guard against being overly optimistic at times, for your enthusiasm for life takes you far. Honors and material success accompany your union. You are attracted to higher learning, and the fine arts, and you are courageous in your approach to shared goals. You do not necessarily reach out to others, being content with your own society, although you will undoubtedly garner respect for your presence as a pair, and together you make loyal friends and few enemies. You are possessed of similar outlooks, and are likely to share a system of belief. Your philosophical common ground may prove to be a mainstay of your connection with each other.
Composite Chiron in strong conjunction
(within 0.9 degrees) with AscendantThe strongest blend of the energies represented by these two planets.
This aspect between Composite Chiron and Ascendant signifies a relationship with a great deal of healing potential. One or both of you are likely to experience painful realizations through the agency of this relationship that will enable you to recognize and eventually heal important issues that you face. There may be difficulties that come up between you for greater understanding and eventual acceptance and healing, and you will also encounter sympathy from your partner for your own process, enabling you to move forward into wholeness more fully. Chiron is called "the wounded healer" because it represents the archetype of imperfection and loss which when integrated leads to compassion and understanding of your own and others' suffering. In the past, one or both of you have probably experienced pain and frustration related to your self-concept, or there could have been trauma in your early years concerning parental protection which may have been withdrawn too suddenly or misapplied, or perhaps similar issues that arose with peers. These types of early traumas often lie buried behind walls of denial, and only when they are accepted and brought to conscious awareness can true healing begin to take place. There are long-buried issues that may come up for you with this particular partner where you can make enormous progress as you work through them realistically and honestly. The empathy and the understanding of your own and your partner's issues that emerge from such a deep relationship will serve you well later in life. Since you have come through the fires of difficulty you are likely as a partnership to be interested in the helping professions, and may eventually assist others in reaching better levels of acceptance and integration of their own dark places.
Composite Pluto in opposition
(within 2.8 degrees) with AscendantThe planetary energies are polarized; outer events stimulate their interaction; integration is the challenge.
This aspect between Composite Pluto and Ascendant signifies a transformative and depthoriented relationship. Your connection has its dark moments, but is fundamental in energizing your lives and allowing you to move through some very significant issues together. You are likely to be engaged in some form of power struggle with each other in this relationship, which can be difficult to handle gracefully, but which can also be a blessing in bringing up the hidden places within each of you and exposing them to the light of conscious awareness. As a partnership you have strong desires, and are intent on pursuing them. Whether a personal or professional one, your relationship will likely go through many changes as you evolve in your understanding of yourselves and each other. There may be boundary concerns that come up between you, or questions of who is calling the shots at any one moment, and these may cause conflict as you work them out together. You benefit from paying close attention to how you respond with your inner voice to each of these situations, preferring to deal with your own needs and reactivity first and foremost rather than playing the blame game, which is essentially a cop out from handling your own issues. By witnessing your feelings and respecting your partner you may achieve much in the way of evolving the relationship between you, and to advance your own personal evolution as well.
Composite Uranus in weak opposition
(within 5.2 degrees) with AscendantThe planetary energies are polarized; outer events stimulate their interaction; integration is the challenge.
This aspect between Composite Uranus and Ascendant signifies an eclectic and exciting relationship, but one perhaps also subject to a large degree of variability and even instability. Within this relationship, you have a cosmic connection to a level of intuition far beyond the confines of the physical plane. As a partnership you are original and independent thinkers with active, scientific minds, futuristic in outlook, and you are capable together of bringing new ideas into being. The two of you function in unique ways together, and stimulate each other's thought process. As members of an unusual and perhaps even eccentric partnership, you are rebellious both with respect to the norms of society and with each other, so that you will undoubtedly have to learn to take the bitter with the sweet. Over time you need to decide what you want to get out of the relationship and adjust expectations to match what is actually available. In a business or friendship connection there will be plenty of good ideas floating around, and you will be constantly amused and challenged by the next horizon of what you are attempting to achieve together. However in a love relationship there will necessarily be some major adjustments that you will have to make. Over time, the ideas that drew you together may still excite you, but if you are looking for stability and homemaking, this relationship is not it. One of you may feel the need to pursue an individual path of growth that is totally independent from the other's input. If you are willing to try a connection with an extraordinary openness, where each partner is able to get space from the other from time to time, then you are in the right place.
Composite Neptune in weak trine
(within 5.4 degrees) with AscendantThe planetary energies flow smoothly; the connection is easy and beneficial.
This aspect between Composite Neptune and Ascendant signifies a highly sensitive, visionary and creative relationship. Your partnership may well be founded on principles of an artistic or musical nature, and you are likely to be sensitive to each other to an extraordinary degree. You are very sympathetic to the needs of your partner. Together you possess an ethereal quality. In your relationship you may have problems in feeling free to assert yourself so that you evade decisions, or practice other forms of escapism. There could also be issues that come up within the relationship of illusion or even outright deception. Together, you feel a marked remoteness from ordinary reality that may find its natural outlet in poetic or musical expression. Your powerful connection with the spiritual dimension of reality is a wonderful ideal to adhere to and takes you far along your intended path, especially when you can manage to achieve a balance with the practicalities of ordinary life.
Composite Sun in Scorpio (4° Sco 33' 44")
Composite Sun in the Eighth HouseThe placement of the composite Sun defines the core identity of your relationship, and the place where it finds its greatest vitality. It gives you a sense of the predominant flavor of the relationship.
The following paragraph emphasized:
With the composite Sun in the Eighth House, your relationship centers around its magnetic fascination with the interaction itself, one that overpowers logic or convention. You have come together for the purpose of transforming yourselves in some way, and this relationship will very likely be an important turning point. In a romantic connection, this magnetism can bridge gaps that might otherwise prevent your relationship from ever happening, whether the difference be cultural, age, educational, or geographic. Your ruling planet is Scorpio, the most intense in the zodiac, and a harbinger of intense interaction with each other, both in bed and out. Here, your relationship reaches below societal norms to touch something deeper within yourselves, and you both emerge powerfully changed thereby. You may find an element of initiation and revelation drawing you both into a deeper exploration of yourselves. This placement can probe into your inner motivations and deep drives, and draw out profound emotions from each of you, although these may remain largely below the level of your awareness, felt but not fully seen. You benefit when you strive for a more conscious recognition of the dynamic that is driving you and, if you open to the flow, enabling your relationship to flourish as it brings about profound change in you.
Composite Sun in strong trine
(within 2.2 degrees) with JupiterThe planetary energies flow smoothly; the connection is easy and beneficial.
This aspect between composite Sun and Jupiter indicates an optimistic and generous relationship filled with good spirits and abundant energy. Together, you tend to approach to life in a quietly spiritual way. You share good executive abilities, and when working together make capable leaders. Together you have the ability to dream large, and then actually pull it off as you were planning, time and again. You are likely to acquire what you need materially relatively easily, the more so because you have natural and simple tastes, so that your wants are few. This might almost seem too easy, and some lessons of appreciation will help, so that you don't take each other or the gifts of this relationship for granted. Good fortune follows your relationship along your shared path.
Composite Sun in strong sextile
(within 2.1 degrees) with UranusThe planetary energies flow together, open into new possibilities, new connections.
With this aspect between composite Sun and Uranus, your relationship has an eccentric and uniquely idealistic quality. This aspect indicates an independent and strong-willed relationship. You two are determined to do things your own way, and love freedom from conformity. Together, you tend to explore all things new and unusual as a matter of course. You don't have to go out of your way to find them; they tend to find you first. You likely support each other to start new projects, or make major changes in your lives, and you share the gift of transforming yourselves without completely eliminating previous foundations. Together you tend to rebel against the norm, and generally do so with style. You have the capacity to support each other in inventing new approaches and developing original thinking. This way you help each other to push the envelope of conventionality. In a romantic context, your relationship may need lots of space. Give each other a long leash, and you are likely to find a rhythm that includes regular time both together and apart, allowing fruitful continuity. Your penchant for the new, the unusual, and the downright quirky will add much adventure to your life together. You two are ultramodern in outlook, and tend to bring new ideas into being on behalf of your larger community. Your task is to fully express your visionary impulses together and make them more concretely available in your own lives, and in the larger world.
Composite Sun in opposition
(within 3.3 degrees) with VenusThe planetary energies are polarized; outer events stimulate their interaction; integration is the challenge.
This aspect between composite Sun and Venus indicates affection and closeness between you with a potential clash of values. It is likely that you two bring distinctly different loves and tastes to your relationship. You are likely to experience each other with a fascination not unlike viewing an exotic creature up close for the first time. Here, what may be fascinating at first can get challenging later. Ina romantic relationship, your affections for each other may be changeable, with periods of strong, passionate love followed by periods of discord, or unsettling indifference. As with all challenging aspects, the key is to develop patience and faith that the things that whither in one season will flourish again in the next. It can be of help to create a communication system that allows you to gently address your differing needs in a way that they can be heard and responded to. You benefit when you learn to take turns with each other, to compromise and to experiment with weaving your differing ways into a wholly new and synergistic form.
Composite Sun in square
(within 4.2 degrees) with SaturnThe planetary energies conflict; internal and creative tensions bring rich rewards through effort over time.
This aspect gives a deepening and concentration, or a blockage, in the capacity for the relationship to express itself. You may find yourselves wondering from time to time, are we committed or not? This relationship tends to go through periods of low energy, when it seems to go nowhere, or when you just don't see each other much at all. Other times, you two can create one of the most ambitious teams around, and may actually leave some mark behind in the world. Look to the placement of the signs and houses involved as to how this ambition might materialize. When your relationship experiences a period of depression or dormancy, it benefits you to learn to let go and stay positive, trusting that it will pick up again when the time is right.
Composite Sun in sextile
(within 5.9 degrees) with PlutoThe planetary energies flow together, open into new possibilities, new connections.
This aspect between composite Sun and Pluto signifies a powerful intensity of connection between you. This relationship is likely to change your whole life. Pluto's presence may express itself as an almost compulsive joint urge for self-transformation in each of you, and the relationship may itself go through many changes, as you transform both individually and in the way that you express yourselves as a unit. This may be a large part of the reason that you have come together, and together you have tremendous capacity for regeneration and rebirth. There is a strong force magnetizing your involvement with each other and an inclination to stay absorbed in the relationship as long as it lasts. You may have experienced a fated quality when you first met, a feeling of recognition that you perhaps belong to the same tribe, or come from the same far away place. If this is a romantic relationship, you may find that you use your sexuality to play with and work through power issues. In a business partnership, you tend to drive hard, and can work single-mindedly as a team to pursue joint goals and to easily establish your place in the market. Whatever the basis for your relationship, it benefits you to train your considerable energy on the cultivation of the yin qualities of vulnerability, surrender and cooperation. As you learn how to get out of your own way and to treat each other with kindness, you surrender control while maintaining your powerful focus in a more conscious manner. Then your relationship can become a focal point for the transformation of society itself.
Composite Sun in trine
(within 4.0 degrees) with ChironThe planetary energies flow smoothly; the connection is easy and beneficial.
With this aspect between your composite Sun and Chiron you have a relationship with a great degree of healing potential. You are likely to experience painful realizations through this partnership, and be able to heal important issues of your own as a result. Chiron is called "the wounded healer" because it represents the archetype of imperfection and loss which when integrated leads to compassion and understanding of your own and others' suffering. Its aspects, such as this one, crop up with great regularity in deep and profound connections such as marriage. The empathy and the understanding of your and your partner's issues that emerge from such a deep relationship will serve you well later in life. There could have been trauma in your early years concerning your parenting or parental protection may have been withdrawn too suddenly or misapplied, and this is the type of issue that you and your partner are striving to bring to conscious understanding in the context of this relationship. There will perhaps be painful situations to work through, but if you have patience and stay the course the results will also be entirely rewarding. You have the chance, through this partnership, by telling the truth at all times and staying available for your own feelings, to begin to integrate your past experiences, no matter how painful they may have been, and no matter how painful these feelings continue to be for you at present. Since you have come through the fires of difficulty you are likely as a partnership to be interested in the helping professions, and may eventually assist others, as well as yourselves, in reaching better levels of acceptance and integration of their dark places.
Composite Moon in strong opposition
(within 2.2 degrees) with MercuryThe planetary energies are polarized; outer events stimulate their interaction; integration is the challenge.
This aspect between composite Moon and Mercury brings a verbally expressive and creative quality to your relationship, and also may indicate that the thinking and feeling functions between you have a tendency to clash. You two have a gift for expression, both with each other and as a partnership in your dealings with the larger world. Your powerful thinking and fertile imagination lend a witty and entertaining twist to your joint expression, and you share a knack for putting your ideas into words. It may also be the case that at times between you thoughts and emotions will not share the stage, but one or the other will predominate. When thoughts take over emotions, emotional mishaps could occur and attempts to clear things up end by taking much longer than it took for the mishap to occur in the first place. When emotions take over thoughts, you may find yourself saying things with an uncharacteristic intensity that surprises you both, or you may also find yourselves trying to reform each other. The key here is to stay on top of difficulties each time they arise, and to be careful to take responsibility for your own issues. There is a creative tension to the verbal and emotional realities of your relationship that can be a force for powerful expression, as long as you can find necessary common ground in your shared desire for love, understanding and acceptance between you.
Composite Moon in strong trine
(within 2.6 degrees) with MidheavenThe planetary energies flow smoothly; the connection is easy and beneficial.
With this aspect between composite Moon and the Midheaven, your relationship has a strong emotional basis with the possibility of a domestic or parenting focus. You have a very soft appeal to each other, in friendship or a romantic connection. If the latter, this is one of the best indications for a shared vision of living together and starting a family. The Moon here indicates that the mothering and feminine side of each of you is a strong part of your relationship equation and that you have commonly held goals there. The sexual chemistry between you may not sizzle, but it is steady and sweet, and your union definitely percolates through your lives in many ways to enrich you both. This makes for a very nurturing relationship in general. You will be prone to take care of each other through the course of time, and of others around you that you connect with as a partnership. You may work together to develop a vehicle for your caring and socially oriented values such as a plan to feed large groups of people. In any case you will be supportive of such values as may be in the process of emerging on the world scene.
Composite Moon in inconjunct
(within 3.3 degrees) with NeptuneThe planetary energies do not flow smoothly, one or the other predominates; discrimination must be employed.
With this aspect between composite Moon and Neptune, your relationship has a powerful emotional basis stemming from a high degree of sensitivity between you. You tend to be very focused on your joint ideals: your ideal environment, your ideal romantic circumstances, perhaps without ever finding the perfect reality. Together you possess an ethereal quality, noticeable to others, and a strong imagination with a propensity for withdrawing from the world from time to time into internal fantasies of your own making. You may need to be careful not to deceive yourselves about what is going on between and around you or to forget to take care of the practicalities of life on this planet.
Composite Moon in inconjunct
(within 5.9 degrees) with PlutoThe planetary energies do not flow smoothly, one or the other predominates; discrimination must be employed.
This aspect between composite Moon and Pluto signifies a powerful emotional intensity in the connection between you and highlights a moody and introspective quality in your relationship. You may each exhibit something of a power drive, especially in domestic areas or in how you give to and nurture each other. In a romantic relationship especially there are likely to be boundary issues, or issues of codependence, or possessiveness, that come up between you. These emotional issues can lead to stormy weather between you from time to time. These may be symptoms that reflect hidden insecurities that rule your behavior from largely unconscious levels of your personality. This relationship challenges you to transform your sense of insecurity by coming to terms with your survival issues based on deep, safe exploration.
Composite Neptune in sextile
(within 2.6 degrees) with PlutoThe planetary energies flow together, open into new possibilities, new connections.
This aspect between composite Neptune and Pluto is a generational aspect that many of your contemporaries will share, and indicates a relationship that is very attuned into the collective, both in its conscious and more unconscious aspects. You share a subtle intuition and unusually clear insight into others. Because the influence of the unconscious is especially strong in your relationship, it benefits you both to connect with your deepest, highest selves in order to be happy. You are part of a dawning awareness that we that cannot help but be part of creating a new paradigm for life on planet earth. You function at your best together when you are in service to the world, helping increase awareness of interconnectedness and oneness.
Other Natal Planets
Composite Mercury in Libra (18° Lib 34')
Composite Mercury in the Eighth HouseMercury in the composite chart reveals the quality of the communication process in your relationship, and an area of your shared experience where intellectual compatibility is to be found.
The composite Mercury in the Eighth House indicates a relationship with good communication around issues of intimacy and deep sharing. You are likely to have an excellent rapport with each other, at both verbal and non-verbal levels, with an almost psychic understanding each other's emotions. In a romantic context, you have good communication in and out of the bedroom, especially regarding issues which are important and transformative for either one of you, so that this is an excellent placement in an important and life-changing relationship. You are likely to learn much from each other regarding the underlying motivations of your actions and the reasons that you might have come together in relationship. Your life together therefore has a great deal of healing potential. As a partnership you may find that ideas surrounding the occult or the deeper understanding of human motivation fascinate you and come up for discussion, although you probably won't make your profession in these areas unless other connections between you warrant it. You have a great deal of interest in smoothing the way for others as well as yourselves to come to a better understanding of their own unconscious processes.
Composite Mercury in Libra brings a positive mental attitude to your relationship, with a good sense of graceful communication. You two tend to be diplomatic with each other and with those around you, and are often quite aware of the effect that your words will have on others. You have terrific judgment and sensitivity most days, with an occasional propensity to lapse to the other extreme once in a while. When together, you tend to express your ideas with balance and fairness to all sides of an issue. Your joint awareness of differing points of view can however make it difficult for you to come to a decision as a partnership. Your relationship brings out a highly developed sense of artistry between you, with a strong tendency toward perfectionism. A shared living space will generally be aesthetically pleasing to both of you. You benefit when you stay as aware as possible of your shared propensity for being fussy with each other and those around you, and learn to lean on your core values of balance and fairness.
Composite Mars in Scorpio (28° Sco 01')
Composite Mars in the Ninth HouseThe placement of Mars in the composite chart reveals the area of your shared activity in pursuit of partnership goals, and where ego needs may be identified.
Mars in the Ninth House (or sign) brings a friendly and optimistic quality to the energy of this relationship, inspiring a spontaneous and impulsive drive for results. You tend to work well and joyfully together, with competition and jealousy at a minimum, although you are sometimes scattered in the application of your joint energies, and are perhaps best suited as a partnership in focusing on the big picture, and delegating the details. You are likely to explore sports or perhaps gambling when with each other. You tend to lead physically active lives together, and may find that the perfect day would be an outing in nature such as a hike rather than anything fancy. You two are idealistic, outspoken and honest with your opinions. You also have a synergistic propensity for growth, which makes this an ideal placement for joint learning and development, or for a student-teacher relationship. While your mutual perspective on the big picture comes easily, you benefit when you slow down, pay attention to details and concentrate your energies.
Composite Mars in Scorpio (or the eighth house) brings out a passionate and intense drive in your relationship. You two tend to move in proud, strong-willed and stubborn ways, and you create a noticeable presence that will likely prove to be a powerful influence on those around you. It may work best if you make an effort to take this naturally competitive drive and consciously create a shared alliance around a specific activity such as joint investments or investigations. In a romantic context, your shared sexual energy is very important to both of you, making this an ideal placement for passionate involvement. Your joint instinct is powerful, and often confidently enacted. Your urge for personal security is strong, and when you let your ego-drives interfere with your good sense, you may lapse into quarrelsome and self-indulgent patterns. When higher consciousness is involved, you can tap into great healing energies for your relationship and for each other individually. You each like getting your own way, so that it is important to you align your goals, and when you do, you create a powerful synergy. When you cultivate self-discipline and strive for objective rather than selfish motivations, the power of your shared drive can have a profound effect on both of you and on the world around you as well.
Composite N Node in Leo (4° Leo 14'R)
Composite N Node in the Sixth HouseMars in the Ninth House (or sign). South Node in the twelfth house or sign. This placement in a composite chart indicates that within this relationship one or both of you feels a great desire to be of service to other people. There may be a sense that in the past, this partner remained relatively unfocused, perhaps was dreamy and paid little attention to detail. But this connection commends each of you to the here and now. Rather than drift in cosmic realms, in the context of this relationship your focus must shift to the details of daily life, in a constant effort to improve self, to serve self and other, and to remain alert to the myriad mundane details of life that do not leave much time for otherworldly pursuits. This is a difficult transition to make, but necessary if you are to fulfill your destiny, and to really explore to the depths your reason for being together. Other conditions may arise, such as illness on the part of one of you that will be a test of the other's patience and commitment to service. As you work through these challenges, though, you come closer and closer to an understanding of how dealing with every-day issues really does connect you with the world of Spirit, in a quite different way, still operating at the core of your being.
Composite Lunar North Node in Leo (or the fifth house). South Node in the eleventh house or sign. This placement in a composite chart signifies that within this relationship you each have a focus on being recognized and admired for the personal creativity that you manifest. You are fortunate in this lifetime, for few people have the capacity, as the two of you do, of actually making your dreams come true. You are engaged through the agency of this relationship in a process of concretizing your thought images, turning the products of your extraordinarily clever intellects into actual manifestation in the world. In the past, you may have specialized in ideals and imaginings, without giving much thought to working these out in the real world. But in the context of this relationship you find that your focus bends toward actually manifesting these into form. When you are on your true path with each other, you find that you must act and create, for in acting you give shape to the otherwise indistinct and ideal, and in so doing fulfill a major purpose of your coming together.
Composite Venus in strong trine
(within 1.2 degrees) with UranusThe planetary energies flow smoothly; the connection is easy and beneficial.
This aspect between composite Venus and Uranus brings to your relationship an eccentric and unconventional method of relating to each other, with a unique ability to come together in new ways. There is something very immediate about the connection between the two of you. You tend to immediately see in each other what you need in order to justify committing to an exploration of further possibilities, whether a business or a more personal connection. In a romantic context, you will likely explore, experiment, and explore some more. You just won't be able to put what you have into any kind of box. You may find that independence is as much of a key to this relationship as togetherness, or that you swing back and forth between the two extremes. When it's hot, it's hot... and when it's not, let it go and trust it will come back around again. You may find your ideal rhythm involves sharing time in potent but irregular doses. You two are likely to be enthusiastic socially and to love the stimulation and excitement of new contacts Your potential with each other is also quite variable, making it hard to know exactly where this relationship is headed. You benefit when you can bring a more consistent focus to your many interests and activities together, and when you allow space for your shared need for freedom.
Composite Jupiter in strong conjunction
(within 1.8 degrees) with ChironThe strongest blend of the energies represented by these two planets.
With this aspect in your composite chart you are likely to be engaged in a relationship that has a strong connection with it's own unique brand of spirituality. As a partnership you likely agree on the powerful effect of Spirit in your lives, and in seeing things though a different lens than that of consensus thinking. One or both of you may also have been wounded in your inherited beliefs in some way; perhaps in your early life you may have been forced into relationship with some sort of spiritual community to which you did not feel a deep bond. If so, this issue remains to haunt you to a greater or lesser extent in your adult life, and it is likely that this relationship will have a positive affect on the situation. Through conversations and activities with your partner, you may well feel your way into a different and more fulfilling connection with the divine, as manifesting in each of your hearts and minds, although not necessarily from the standpoint of any other societal group. Together you have an abiding interest in matters of religion and philosophy, although this is likely to represent your own style of spiritual involvement rather than any form of spiritual institution.
Composite Pluto in strong opposition
(within 2.0 degrees) with ChironThe planetary energies are polarized; outer events stimulate their interaction; integration is the challenge.
With this aspect in your composite chart you are likely to be engaged in a relationship in which there is difficulty and also great healing potential around issues of power and control. There may also be compulsive behavior on the part of one or both partners that comes up for greater acceptance and eventual healing during the course of this relationship. As a result of your life experiences before coming together, one or both of you may have a tendency to plunge into the depths of despair or the heights of manic madness as a form of compensatory reaction to over-indulgence in one form or another of a compulsive desire nature, perhaps expressed in terms of sexuality or abuse of power. Potent healing abilities are ultimately indicated with this placement, but you must first work through some tough issues, and this relationship can be life changing in that regard. Of course the relationship will be an important testing ground where power and control issues emerge, and where a tremendous increase in consciousness around them may result, but that is only the first step. There is a lot of work that needs to be done, and the nature of this work is that a good deal of it must be done alone. However, the safety zone of a mutually agreed conscious relationship can be an invaluable asset in pursuing such rewards. There are great depths of passion within each one of you, likely the result of painful experiences from early childhood, and there is tremendous benefit to be gained when these experiences become better integrated. When you become more conscious of these patterns you have a huge capacity to heal yourself and even others in your circle. As a partnership you have a keen intuition for each other, and great power to transform not only yourselves and your relationship but the larger collective surrounding you as well.
Composite Venus in inconjunct
(within 3.2 degrees) with MarsThe planetary energies do not flow smoothly, one or the other predominates; discrimination must be employed.
This aspect between composite Mars and Venus indicates fireworks in your relationship that will inevitably show up, especially when there are other solid links in place between you. In a romantic relationship, you are likely to feel a strong animal magnetism toward each other. You tend to activate deeply held desires within each other and offer the means to fulfill them. If you are friends or colleagues rather than lovers, there still remains a noticeable air of charged chemistry around you. You may find that your desire energies complement each other or there may perhaps be potential conflicts between you in gratifying the ego needs that you each have. No matter what the nature of your relationship may be, the lesson of this placement is to let go of future wants and instead to stay very present with what is happening between you right now. You benefit when you learn to enjoy that which quietly arises out of the present, and let the situation build from there.
Composite Jupiter in opposition
(within 3.8 degrees) with PlutoThe planetary energies are polarized; outer events stimulate their interaction; integration is the challenge.
This combination brings a fatefully determined quality to your relationship and an intense mandate to develop your powers to the fullest. You might feel as if you are reflecting a change-or-die mentality that can create a powerful intensity between you that turns small disagreements into major battles. Your relationship brings out an intuitive, penetrating capacity for insight that helps to make the workings of your dynamic easier to understand, as long as you can avoid the obvious power struggle and begin to truly work together rather and apart from each other. In a romantic relationship, it may help to sort out your conflicting aspirations and sit down together to prioritize them. It may also benefit you to take time to carefully check what drives are motivating you at any given moment. You may see that the inclination to control or to convince the other of your point of view is based on old fears, or the belief that some unseen force out there has it in for you. Once you can work together to uncover the fears that drive your need to control, you may find that this relationship ushers you both into a deep level of surrender and transformation. If you use the gifts of your connection wisely, you can become a model for demonstrating the transformation of a power-over dynamic into a mutually empowered and co-creative process for growth.
Composite Saturn in inconjunct
(within 1.7 degrees) with PlutoThe planetary energies do not flow smoothly, one or the other predominates; discrimination must be employed.
This aspect between composite Saturn and Pluto brings a formidable forcefulness to your partnership. With this placement, you find yourself part of relationship that comes with a focus on issues of authority, power and control, with also the benefit of radical transformation. You benefit when you work through any compulsion that arises within the relationship regarding personal power or attitudes toward established authority. You have the opportunity here to help each other reevaluate and transform your urge for power and control based on a deeper understanding of the very nature of power itself. It may be difficult to achieve, but if you can work through these issues, you are likely to develop a more conscious and socially responsible use of personal power that could assist in your own evolution and that of the world around you.
Composite Pluto in square
(within 3.3 degrees) with MidheavenThe planetary energies conflict; internal and creative tensions bring rich rewards through effort over time.
This aspect between composite Pluto and the Midheaven brings to your relationship a passionate intensity and also a great potential for personal evolution. There is a depth to your connection with each other that may not seem obvious on the surface, but which over time you find is there. Deep needs are triggered in each of you, and one or both of you will perhaps profoundly change as a result of your coming together. In a romantic connection, the possibility is there for conflicts over who has the authority at any given moment. The sexual arena is one place that these control issues may manifest. In any case, there is unconscious energy to be discovered and discharged as a result of your joint enterprise, and a profound sense of your mission together, which may go through many changes on the way to discovering what that mutual purpose truly is.
Composite Sun in weak conjunction
(within 8.5 degrees) with NeptuneThe strongest blend of the energies represented by these two planets.
With this conjunction between composite Sun and Neptune, your relationship has vision and creativity, with a high degree of sensitivity between you. You will find that your connection has an unworldly, ethereal side. There is an important spiritual connection that you share, and that may even be the reason that you have come together. You two bring out a softhearted quality in each other, and you may have to be careful that you don't sacrifice too much of yourselves in helping others. Your relationship thrives in its subtle body, but you may begin to suffer if you expect it to bear fruit in the material plane. There could be issues of idealism or fantasy, perhaps even outright deception that you will mutually work through in the course of this partnership. In a romantic relationship, you are likely to share an interest in art or music. You may find that you daydream together easily and well, and that you enjoy sharing fantasies. Just try to be sure you remember the difference between sharing your fantasies and living inside of one. The otherworldly energy of Neptune must be used in ways consistent with its visionary possibilities, or it will turn against itself. When you do find expression for the mystical force you share between you, tremendous creativity is possible, perhaps manifested through artistic channels: music, drama, or poetry.
Composite Venus in weak square
(within 7.5 degrees) with SaturnThe planetary energies conflict; internal and creative tensions bring rich rewards through effort over time.
This aspect between composite Venus and Saturn brings a potential blockage to your relationship, as well as a deepening and a concentration of your powers. With this placement you may notice you don't get what you want from your partner. You may feel as though you were working at cross-purposes with each other. Especially in a romantic relationship, obstacles to do with distance, age, lack of availability or the like, tend to crop up on your joint path, making it difficult for you get to where you want to go with each other. Even in a business-oriented partnership, these types of issues may present problems and keep you from ever feeling as though you were truly on the same page with each other. You may seem cold or uncaring to each other at times, or express jealousy or other feelings of inferiority, which may also manifest as a nagging discontent with life in general, and this of course causes difficulty in the relationship. Together, you have an opportunity to rise above these circumstances with concentrated effort over time toward inner integration and balance, building a relationship more fully explored and felt.
Composite Mars in weak square
(within 4.4 degrees) with UranusThe planetary energies conflict; internal and creative tensions bring rich rewards through effort over time.
This aspect between composite Mars and Uranus brings to your relationship a powerful eccentricity with an original and eclectic mindset and a keen intuition. You two are strong-willed and nonconformist to the point of resisting each other as well as outer authority and occasionally display fits of temper. You may feel restless in this relationship or lack steadiness as you pursue your joint goals. Your shared goals may change unexpectedly and dramatically as time goes on, and resist all efforts to define them. Together, you may make sudden decisions. You may, for example, find that one of you makes a sudden move that impacts the other's life in far-reaching ways, or it may be that outside agencies conspire to create unexpected shocks. You may also find that this connection catalyzes long-held ideas into action, and dreams new truth into being. If you keep your eyes open, really try to learn what makes your partner tick, and accept what you see, you can make the most of unconventional attitudes and bold behavior. Change and variety excite you as a partnership, and your urge for constant breakthrough may frustrate or confuse those around you. You share at your essence a courageous and pioneering spirit that gives your relationship a sense of mission around bringing new ideas into being. You benefit from bringing consciousness and clarity to the expression of your joint goals.
Composite Jupiter in weak opposition
(within 4.3 degrees) with UranusThe planetary energies are polarized; outer events stimulate their interaction; integration is the challenge.
This combination brings a socially conscious, optimistic and intuitive quality to your relationship, and you two share a gift for working with groups. You have a strong sense of optimism, possess high ideals and motivate others through your inventive and original example. You enjoy exploring new horizons, either real or imagined, and tend not to value security as much as you value an ever-expanding sense of freedom. You share a penchant for committing outlandish acts for the sheer heck of it, which provides you with tremendous entertainment, and occasionally tremendous stress. Together, you can be rebellious, restless and excitable, because you have the capacity to visualize new possibilities rather than accept an outmoded status quo. You are also likely to experience sudden and surprising opportunities throughout the lifetime of this relationship, which may take you into expansive states and distant places. Be aware of your capacity to envision possibilities too vast to achieve. You may resist this idea, but you actually increase your chances of benefiting yourselves and others with your innovative gifts by choosing the more conservative path and by cultivating a more practical approach.
Composite Jupiter in weak trine
(within 6.4 degrees) with NeptuneThe planetary energies flow smoothly; the connection is easy and beneficial.
This aspect between composite Jupiter and Neptune brings a highly imaginative and deeply spiritual quality to your relationship. You tend to bring out a friendly and unassuming energy in each other, and make a practice of kindness and consideration of others. You may find yourselves together naturally falling into the role of spiritual leaders in your larger community although you also prefer to do your work behind the scenes, not seeking personal glorification from your actions. You do what you do because it is helpful to others, and because it feels good to do it. As a partnership you are inclined to the mystical, seeing life in visionary and poetic terms rather than in the practical. When you enjoy your shared sense of imagination without letting it cloud your powers of judgment, you benefit as your relationship moves to a more practical and reality-based center.
Composite Jupiter in weak square
(within 7.0 degrees) with MidheavenThe planetary energies conflict; internal and creative tensions bring rich rewards through effort over time.
This aspect between composite Jupiter and the Midheaven brings a joyful recognition between you and good luck generally, although with a perhaps overly optimistic assessment of your potential. You two may feel like you can move mountains together, and you might need to be aware of the possibility of glossing over the drawbacks along the way to a proposed outcome. It may be best to temper your joyful expectations with a healthy dose of pessimism and reality checking. In a romantic relationship, you are likely to be excited over your plans for a shared future. You might want to be sure that you're on course before you go ahead with your plans. You also may have a joint urge for taking in the broader point of view that comes with extended travel, while teaching and learning together are also likely to be a strong part of your relationship experience.
Composite Saturn in weak square
(within 4.3 degrees) with NeptuneThe planetary energies conflict; internal and creative tensions bring rich rewards through effort over time.
This aspect can bring clear thinking, discrimination and grounded action to what otherwise might be a very nebulous relationship. You two tend to be responsible, compassionate and take social issues very seriously. You may participate in an active way with music or the healing arts. With these two planets in challenging aspect, however, you may find that the limitations of Saturn combined with the confusion of Neptune leaves you both feeling depressed about the general state of things from time to time. You may suffer through a series of trials before eventually learning to work these energies into their more positive forms. Then, sturdy Saturn serves to ground the grand visions of Neptune, allowing you two to give form to the inexpressible in a way that serves both the relationship and the world beyond it.
Composite Uranus in weak conjunction
(within 8.0 degrees) with PlutoThe strongest blend of the energies represented by these two planets.
This combination in your composite chart reveals a relationship with a strong will and great depth of passion. Together, you are tuned in to the energy of the collective to an unusual degree, with a special focus on the ultimate transformation of society. You share a keen intuition and great power to transform yourselves and your relationship as you evolve as a partnership. You also tend to bring great force to bear in expressing your opinions about how this is best accomplished. You benefit when you work to develop tolerance, diplomacy and tact as you boldly make your way through the world. In a romantic connection, you may share an unconventional approach where sexual matters are concerned. At your best, your partnership demonstrates great interest in the transformation of social systems to be more individually fulfilling and empowering, and you are apt to be of assistance to this effort as builders and helpers in the creation of a new world based on humanitarian ideals.
Composite Uranus in weak opposition
(within 6.1 degrees) with ChironThe planetary energies are polarized; outer events stimulate their interaction; integration is the challenge.
With this aspect in your composite chart your relationship has a strong spiritual connection with it's own unique brand of philosophical outlook. As a partnership, you are likely to be prone to sudden insights and departures from consensus thinking. One or both of you probably has an unusual combination of personality traits in which you are very unconventional yet also somewhat unsure of yourself in your very departure from the rest of society, so that you may surprisingly show flashes of a conservative side. You are likely to have brilliant and refreshingly unconventional minds, and this combination of personality traits may have drawn you to each other in the first place. Now you can form a conspiracy of two that defeats the pressure to conform that constantly comes at you from the surrounding social setting. In this way, and with this very important support for each other, your relationship can be extraordinarily healing for you both, especially in the area of your own uncertainties regarding your resistance to the straight and narrow. You have a creative perspective that allows you to go far in pursuing your own unique brand of spirituality.
Composite Neptune in weak trine
(within 4.6 degrees) with ChironThe planetary energies flow smoothly; the connection is easy and beneficial.
With this aspect in your composite chart you have in your relationship a strong spiritual connection and an almost psychic sympathy with each other, based on your own experiences in these sensitive areas. One or both of you is likely to have particularly strong access to the world of dreams and inner fantasy, which may serve as an escape valve. If so, there may be a wound to your sense of place in this physical world. You may be extremely sensitive to the energy of others, and vicariously experience their pain, or allow yourself to be overly influenced by their opinion of you. Something perhaps keeps you out of touch with consensus reality, and you are not very comfortable with this role. It is as if you stand on the other side of a glass door from the rest of society, through which you alternately gaze longingly and then lose interest and wander away into your own fantasy. Your spiritual evolution involves moving through this issue, and there is a way that this relationship will be an important steppingstone for both of the partners in this regard. There may also be issues to work through regarding too much idealism or self-sacrifice by one of you. Once you have begun to work through these difficulties and establish a better sense of where you each stand vis a vis the remainder of society, the two of you are capable of tremendous spiritual powers. Together you may build bridges from this world to the visionary other, exhibiting great poetic or musical talent or the empathy of the born healer. Having come through a painful examination of your own psyche you are able to see more clearly and compassionately into the minds of others around you as well.
Composite Chiron in weak square
(within 5.2 degrees) with MidheavenThe planetary energies conflict; internal and creative tensions bring rich rewards through effort over time.
This aspect between composite Chiron and the Midheaven brings to your relationship a sense of your own woundedness and also a great potential for healing these wounds as you continue to work through them together. With this placement, there are likely to be issues from early childhood that may be triggered in the context of this relationship, perhaps around exerting personal will versus knuckling under to authority. If so, the evolutionary intent of bringing up these facets of the long-dead past is for moving through them and the eventual healing of these issues in your lives. When conflicts arise you benefit when you are able to look quietly and closely into your underlying motivations, rather than either attempting to ignore the pain that might be coming up for you or to put the blame on your partner for triggering your own reactivity. As a partnership you might also be called to a sense of mission around healing these types of problems in the lives of others.
