Astrology's Composite Chart and Your Relationship Roadmap
The Composite Chart of a Couple Reveals Valuable Information on the Relationship Itself
Astrological compatibility is determined first by assessing the aspects that are formed by the
individual charts themselves. We look at Sun to venus, venus to mars, sun to moon and so on.
This shows the compatible elements that the individuals themselves feel when in the presense
of the other person. Some people bring out the best in us and others, well......not so much.
This is because of the harmonious and/or challengingaspects between the charts.
Okay, so let's say you have relatively compatible elements between you. Now you have to look at the
chart of the relationship itself, to find out the purpose, and how this entity interacts with you individually.
At the beginning of a relationship you may seem to get along just peachy - But the minute you really
commit to a relationship, or it becomes long term, is when it's attributes, it's benefits, it's challenges will be revealed - this is the composite chart at work.
The composite chart is determined by finding the midpoint between two individuals' suns, moons,
mercurys etc. to form a new chart that reflects the purpose of the two joining together in a committed
union. This is true in friendship, a business relationship, siblings, parents, children, and romantic relationships.
This Chart now reveals another entity with harmonious and challenging aspects of its' own. It has a purpose and agenda that the individuals themselves will have to live with, and learn from. It shows what you may have to contend with within the relationship and outside forces.
What I like is that the composite chart can ofset some difficult aspects you may have between your natal charts. For instance, in my relationship we have some difficult mercury aspects interacting between us. This makes it difficult to understand each other and feel like we are on different wavelengths at times. However, in our composite chart we have - mercury sextile jupiter - this helps us to have more tolerance for each others' point of view. And we are better able to find the compromise or work through our differences.
We also have the aspect - sun conjunct venus - denoting a very harmonious and mutual love, and this is a very harmonious aspect to have which signifies mutual love and support within the relationship
-However, this conjunction is squared by uranus - boooooo - this has been a problem with us
from the get go. Constant disruptions, separations, and unavailability has reeked havoc on us. And it
seemingly is beyond either of our control.
So we can either throw up our hands and wave good-bye, or we can have this awareness that this is
something inherent in our relationship and learn to go with the flow. The lesson here would be to be
more flexible within a relationship and not need a 9 to 5/stable/secure/consistent relationship. This is where one of us (or you if this your case) would have to decide if this was something I/him/you could live with. Some people don't mind things being less than consistant and prefer a style of relationship where the other person isn't always around - someone who likes a lot of freedom perhaps. Then there's those who much prefer having a very stable home and relationship. This is where you would have to make a choice.
Another relationship I was in had a composite - moon square saturn - this one aspect revealed to me
why we couldn't make it FULLY work (i wish i knew now what i didn't know then).
With the knowledge you gain from a composite chart, you can be aware of the issues and lessons in your
relationship that are there for your mutual growth. And you can find ways to work with the challenges and enjoy the benefits ! Knowledge and awareness empower you to make the decisions that are right for
your relationships and your life.
