Sample Relationship Report for Brad Pitt & Jennifer Aniston
The Relationship SUN
The relationship Sun, like the Sun in a natal chart, is the heart of the relationship and its primary drive and focus. The sign in which it falls will color the entire relationship, as many of the important events in the relationship will occur when transiting bodies are in this sign. If it is strong in its house position and supported by good aspects from other bodies, the relationship will have a solid center and will tend to sustain itself despite the buffets of adversity. If it is poorly aspected or in a difficult house position, the relationship will be easily damaged and difficult to repair as the natural cyclical transits will tend to reinforce negative qualities of the relationship rather than positive. The Sun’s primary quality is restorative drive, the general impetus toward life and its sustenance, rather than any specific traits or areas of endeavor such as are represented by the planets. Therefore its placement will tell the overall thrust and style of the relationship and how well it bears up under fire, rather than give the details of just how it will do so. A badly placed Sun can mean a relationship that is almost certain to fail, because wounds to the partnership won’t heal themselves. A very well-placed Sun can mean a relationship that sustains and resuscitates itself so well that it may even be difficult to get out of should either partner choose to do so (as might be the case if the planetary aspects were very difficult or if the two natal charts themselves were in great conflict). It is the driving engine of the relationship and everything else orbits around it and derives life from its energy.
SUN in CANCER ☉ in ♋
Relationship sun in Cancer underpins this relationship with a great deal of intensity, which can mean great heights of passion in a love relationship or great commitment and brotherhood in other kinds. It definitely takes itself very seriously and that is both its joy and its risk. If things are going well, fine; when they’re not, they can be destructive to both partners. This is a very good kind of relationship to be able to stand back from and, as it were, dip into as long as it proceeds well. If problems arise, be ready to step outside the persona of the relationship and become individuals again where reason can prevail (unless both have sun in Cancer, in which case this strategy may be impossible). This also tends to be an exclusive kind of relationship that knowingly or unknowingly emotionally shuts others out. Just remember that there is an uncompromising joy in making the two of you the entire world. When you wall others out, you wall yourself in. Just make sure each have an escape route: the safety of knowing the route is there makes your ability to enjoy the intensity of exclusivity all the greater.
The Relationship MOON
The symbolism of the relationship Moon in a relationship is that of reflection — not in the sense of intellectual deliberation or thoughtful rumination but much more literally, reflective like a mirror. Whereas the Sun represents the primal, outgoing energy in the relationship, the Moon shows how the relationship reacts to situations once they have been presented to it. When someone approaches you with an idea, do you react to it, criticize it, laugh at it or with it? Steal it? Ignore it? Expand upon it? Extending this logic, it, of course means how you feel about a situation, the process and style in which your emotions are stirred. The things to which you react include each other, so the position of the relationship Moon will be critical to the emotional well-being and functionality of the relationship, independent of your individual natures. Thus, a well-placed and well-supported relationship Moon can lend clarity and cooperation to the most confused and befuddled people who might never expect to get along; whereas an afflicted relationship Moon can throw dissension and conflict into the lives of the most well-adjusted and easy-going persons who normally get along with everybody. This is, of course, because this reflective, emotional effect is largely subconscious, and because it does not emanate from either of you in the usual way, you are unfamiliar with its style and rhythms. This accounts for a lot of the “magic” – both good and bad – that is associated with relationships. On the positive side, it can mean a relationship that seems to heal one or both of you and just makes everything go right that didn’t before. This is a marvelous feeling but one that can lead to a mistaken dependency on your partner as the source of the improvement when it is actually the relationship itself that should get the credit. On the opposite side it can lead to mutual blame for making things worse when the fault lies with neither of you but in the structure of the situation itself. The great advantage of having the details of the relationship chart available to you is that you can better differentiate the strengths and weaknesses of the situation from those, which may lie within yourselves. The former you will have to work around on the exterior, the latter you will have to work from within. In tandem with the Sun, the Moon and its position will make or break most relationships. If the Sun and Moon are well-placed and well- aspected, the relationship is anything from a good bet to a sure thing, regardless of the other positions and problems that need to be worked out. If the Sun and Moon are badly positioned or afflicted, it will be an uphill fight all the way, and one that either or both of you may choose to set aside unless you feel compelled to spend a great deal of time, energy, and emotion rising to the challenge. Life is about choices, and here especially the relationship chart can help supply the data you need to aid you in your selection.
MOON in CANCER ☽ in ♋
This relationship can become a real emotional hothouse, steamy in the best and worst of ways. It will tend, when challenged, to fall back on itself and the two of you will be your greatest emotional resource, often to the exclusion of others. This will make for a comfortable nest to which you can retreat and live in your own special world together, a world of great commitment and emotional intensity. For this same reason, you may find the intrusion of the external world an invasion and to the extent either of you reaches out for other relationships it can engender jealousy or insecurity on the part of the other. If there is a lesson to be learned, it is to allow individual freedom outside of the relationship while maintaining the especially heightened level of feelings, which you bring to each other. Tolerance mixed with passion, understanding blended with commitment, will make this combination a winning one and a powerful unified force in dealing with the world around you. Externally, over-sensitivity comes easily, so cultivate a thick skin when dealing with others, as they don’t mean things quite as personally as you may take them. Open as many channels of communication as possible so that emotional pressure can find release when you need it.
The Relationship MERCURY
Mercury in the relationship chart represents the mutual meeting of minds, or lack of it, between you. It also represents your ability to communicate to others as a couple or as individuals. In the first instance, in which the position symbolizes the shore between two intellects, it will be important to know what kind of communication goes on: by style, substance, and action (sign, house, and aspect). A well-placed Mercury will mean that you can put clearly into words what you mean to say to each other, and such a position can be of great help in alleviating emotional problems that may not easily come to the surface. If you can both say how you feel, you’ve gone a long way towards being able to change. On the other hand, a badly placed Mercury can have the opposite effect, stirring up emotional problems where there were none by simply getting communications wires crossed. In a professional relationship this can mean all sorts of pointless starts and stops because of faulty information, particularly in an increasingly information-oriented society. The position of Mercury therefore becomes increasingly critical in relationships in general. Its placement also describes how you communicate as a duo with the public at large, so herein lies further opportunities for good or ill. Well-placed, it will mean that you may be able to get yourself across to the world at large through the relationship rather than on your own. Where there are difficulties here, it may be better to speak your own piece and not let the relationship represent you. Nevertheless, knowing the situation in advance can help enormously, as you won’t have to learn the communications value of the relationship by trial and error or blame each other for problems that arise from what is essentially a third party with its own horoscope, the relationship itself. Rather, you can take advantage of the best that it offers and avoid what looks like trouble by one or both of you pulling back on your own to handle problems the relationship does not cope with well.
MERCURY in LEO ☿ in ♌
You may find that spacious and optimistic thinking is a notable trait of this relationship, a kind of infectious cheer that can carry others along with you. That’s a pretty good characteristic, but you should be careful that your optimism is justified, particularly if you intend to bank on it later. That’s even more important if you’re going to be influencing others in the same direction. Whatever the situation, you will likely be able to put an upward-looking spin on your view of things, perhaps more so than you might do individually, so the relationship can make you feel up when you are down and let you share the brighter side of things, even when you think there isn’t one. The only things you are likely to neglect in your communications skills are the nitty-gritty details; the little touches that make the deal airtight or give a conversation a specific personal touch. You may have to make a special effort to do that individually, should the details get lost in the shuffle when you are together with your sights set on broader, more general goals. Similarly, it can be easy to confuse others’ goals and intentions with your own and thus make incorrect assumptions about what they are really trying to say. Make the effort to stand back and look at what you are saying as someone else would; this can be easily solved without losing the intellectual energy and drive of the relationship.
The Relationship VENUS
The planet Venus represents desire, attraction, what you physically and emotionally desire and as a relationship position describes where your desires meet and either blend or conflict, or a bit of both. This is too often applied to love interests alone, although it covers them as well. It means everything you desire – money, position, beautiful things, property, friends, lovers, anything that you want and believe if you get it, will make you happy. It also has another side which is your ability to appear to provide just such fulfillment for others, thus symbolizing personal charm, beauty, attractiveness, wealth, and so on. It’s the two-way wish fulfillment point where dreams are born. When this is viewed between two people as a relationship point, it means how and whether you make each other’s dreams, on a very basic level, come true. If badly placed, it can mean continual desire and constant disappointment. If strong by position, it will be a buttress to the relationship, as you know you will always get what you want when you come back to it. It is, of course, critical in telling how a sexual relationship will unfold and can spell repeated ecstasy or constant frustration, especially taken in tandem with relationship Mars. It also represents how well the relationship as a whole will be able to realize its goals and desires, which will of course be directly connected with its ability to make itself desirable, both of which are described by this relationship point. Thus, an afflicted relationship Venus is a double indemnity, because it usually prevents either of you from getting what you want out of each other, and it means the relationship will not get what it wants, either. Conversely, a well-aspected relationship Venus is like a gift from above, as it means mutual success and satisfaction all around. In judging the overall success of a relationship, this is indeed a very important position.
VENUS in GEMINI ♀ in ♊
A wide variety of tastes will likely mark this relationship, which means you will always find something to satisfy whatever the situation. Moreover, given a multiplicity of choices, it may be difficult to settle on just what it is you want or like best. When it becomes difficult to follow through or when you run out of interest, set one or the other of you on the task, and let that one pursue it until your joint interest and commitment returns. From an exterior point of view, you may find that you have a charming ability to please everyone, mainly because of your tastes and your willingness to accommodate others and still take real pleasure in what is being achieved. If there is any potential problem in this, it comes from spreading yourself too thinly and trying to please too many at once without being able to spend enough time with each. The same goes for your ability to fully pull within your grasp that which you would like to possess — be careful nothing slips between your fingers while you are distracted by another. The ability to successfully pursue multiple desires is entirely within your potential, but it will largely depend on your ability to split your concentration, which can be helped by sharing responsibilities between the two of you.
The Relationship MARS
Mars represents physical and emotional energy, and as such the ability and inclination to get things done, to fulfill desire by taking action. By itself it is really just raw energy, and its placement, particularly in relation to the other bodies in the chart, describes where and how well this energy will be directed. As a relationship point, it describes how your two energy directions mesh and whether they will reinforce each other or simply get in each other’s way. It will tell whether sparks will fly, igniting random and destructive brush fires, or whether a controlled fire will blossom that will become the engine to power and fulfill your desires under your own direction. Its relationship to Venus, particularly in sexual relationships, is critical, as it will describe whether it will fulfill or deny your sexual needs. In both male and female it describes sexual drive as well as assertiveness and ultimately, aggression. Thus, a well positioned relationship Mars allows the two of you to unite your energies naturally toward whatever goal you choose, while a difficult placing will put your efforts constantly at odds, wasting your efforts in mutual conflict or confusion when you should be utilizing them otherwise. As with Venus, this can be the greatest natural blessing or a terrible stumbling block. A strong relationship Mars can energize and focus two people who are otherwise at sixes and sevens with themselves, and a troublesome one can throw the most balanced performers into disarray as they wonder what hit them to throw them so off balance. Thus, it will be wise to understand this position well so as to know whether to ride it or back off. It will also portray the power potential of the relationship as it exists in the outside world. A strong Mars has the energy to carry others along with it, whereas a disabled one will tend to break down already functioning operations in the relationships’ social surroundings. None of this suggests that a difficult Mars means you should forget about the relationship, however, as if one of you is simply put in charge in certain areas, mutually compartmentalizing the energy flow; the ill effect can be largely disenabled, albeit at the price of local inequality. It is something to be considered with care and attention, however, as herein lies much of your self-empowerment and control over your lives.
MARS in CANCER ♂ in ♋
You may find that it is easier for this relationship to take care of business on its own with a minimum of involvement of others. Privacy, and actions taken in private, will have a high priority to you and you will accomplish more, internally and externally, than that which you are forced to perform under public scrutiny or in conjunction with others. As partners you will have an unusual degree of dependence upon each other. No one is an island, however, and you may find that reaching out to others for help when problems arise may go a long way to taking some of the pressure off the relationship, which can build up like an overheated boiler at times. Nevertheless, when you do succeed in fulfilling your aims, you will have the pride and self-assurance that the credit goes entirely to yourselves. Just don’t let the intensity that this is likely to give the relationship become all-consuming and thus throw you off the mark. Let off a little steam on less-serious matters and your aim and mutual enjoyment will be enhanced and your energy renewed accordingly.
The Relationship JUPITER
Jupiter in any chart represents the capacity for growth and expansion in relation to whatever it is connected. It means bigger, better, newer, faster, higher, and more developed. It is usually looked at only in the positive aspect, but it also has the potential to get out of hand if not checked and directed. The relationship chart is the area that your mutual aspiration and inventiveness meet, a point where creativity is strong but which may or may not bring its potentials to fruition, depending upon its placement and how you handle it. Well-aspected it allows you to view realistically and act effectively upon what you determine together to make the relationship a spawning ground of limitless opportunity, more than either of you could manage separately. Debilitated, it can mean overblown expectations that come to nothing, biting off more than you can chew, situations that spiral out of control, and projects that perish under their own weight. But these ills aside, Jupiter usually does more good than harm and under most conditions it is the place to look for blessings. A solid relationship Jupiter will mean that you can always look to the relationship to pull each of you up another step when you are stagnating and it will mean that others can look to the two of you for inspiration and new ideas. Where it is difficult, you will have to take the opportunity to restrain yourself now and again and develop only that which you think you can use at the time to avoid wasting your energies on unrealizable goals. It will show you where the big picture is and provide the kind of life overview which the relationship teaches that you might not have discovered on your own. It can be the force that carries you both away with each other and raises you to heights you didn’t know you had. Its only danger is allowing the relationship to take over you as individuals. Use it as a resource for each of you to draw on, not the other way round, and it will always pay off for you.
JUPITER in CANCER ♃ in ♋
The style in which this relationship develops and will take some special tending in order to get the most out of it. You tend to keep your new directions under wraps, sometimes even where each other are concerned, until they spring full-blown into existence. It’s rather like an egg developing, but you can’t see the embryo. It just sits there, until one day it bursts open and out staggers a new-formed chick. Nevertheless, a lot went into forming the new individual, and the wrong conditions experienced by the chick while in the egg can seriously harm its development. Although you will prefer not to give away your plans, it might be a good idea to get some outside feedback now. Then you see if it’s going as well as you think. If not, you need to rework things before it is too late and you’re already committed to a course of action. In the end it will be your feelings rather than your thoughts, which will direct the evolution of the relationship. And if it doesn’t work out; it will be feelings, which are sometimes difficult to repair, that are injured. Because you feel it all depends upon you, the pressure to get it right will be much greater than if you opened yourselves up a bit where you can share blame as well as credit. Once you decide how you want to revise and develop your situation, you will find that you have a great deal of commitment to what you are doing and will defend it like a mother defends her children. Such loving care about how the two of you grow together will do much to cement your relationship, especially if you keep channels open between you so both have plenty of input: truly a joint triumph in the end.
The Relationship SATURN
Saturn is usually considered the bugbear among planets and has an evil reputation that it only partially deserves. It is associated with restriction, contraction, dearth, debilitation, and a host of other adjectives that add up to not getting what you want. That is, however, only partly true. It might be better to say that it describes extreme delineation, concreteness, and finality — reality in the most concrete sense. Much of our lives are comprised of hopes, plans, desires, dreams, wishes, and expectation, and Saturn describes what actually becomes of them. So in such a goal-oriented, future-driven society as ours, what actually happens is all too often a disappointment, the result of failed unrealistic expectations. Thus, Saturn in the relationship chart is where you both get down to brass tacks and determine (or have determined for you) what actually is to be. If this point is well-situated, it means that you can rely on each other and the relationship as something that delivers every time. It will lend solidity to the relationship and make it something you can lean on when either of you need to be backed up. It will also make the two of you a haven for others in distress. In a difficult position, it will mean that you tend to fail each other, to bring each other down, and to sap each other’s energies physically or emotionally. In this situation it can highlight the insecurities of the relationship and mark for failure what might otherwise have succeeded. But in either situation, like any other planet, it will not touch every aspect of the relationship and so you are free to be selective if you know what areas it is either supporting or restricting. You want to know what the bottom line is everywhere, however; and that is what Saturn will tell you. But you don’t have to invest in stocks you think are going to depreciate, either. If you recognize early what the downsides and the support pillars of the relationship are, you can use one to stand on while you either avoid or make repairs upon the other at your leisure. If you do not, ignorance is the ally of the dark side and it will have much greater power to pull you in and cripple you. Find your foundation stones early, so your house will not be built upon sand; and, in time, your temple will rise to the skies.
SATURN in PISCES ♄ in ♓
This is a difficult position for Saturn, as its conservative, stability-seeking nature is literally afloat in the miasma that is the sign of Pisces. It therefore represents a physical and spiritual challenge concerning the methods you go about seeking your security together. If you look for the standard principles to lean on, ones that seem to work for everybody else, you will likely find yourself ill at ease with them and unable to make them work for you. Instead you will have to find a way of deriving your innermost stability from the results of inner growth and a faith in each other’s ability to achieve it. If you ask for imposing results all the time, you’ll seldom get them or, when you need them, they will disappear. If you cast your bread upon the waters, you will be buoyed up by hands unseen and carried on to broader vistas, like a ship caught up in a current and carried to foreign lands. This requires being willing to give up a lot of control that is taken for granted as necessary by most and can make you feel quite insecure until you get used to it. It is mainly a matter of style here, however, as the results will be the same, just not the methods you find most successful to go about getting to them.
The Relationship URANUS
Uranus is one of the three relatively recently-discovered outer planets, and all three are marked with a reality common to new experience and endeavor. They are not fully explored and thus not very much under our control. Uranus has been known the longest, (since 1786), and is a bit more familiar. It is associated with sudden events, shocks, realizations, discoveries, and other highly delineated events that sheer off quickly and completely from their previous states or surroundings. For creatures of habit, such as most of us are, this is usually upsetting and generally bad news. But it does not have to be. Your ability to use Uranus instead of letting it abuse you, is directly related to how flexible and quick on your feet you are. It also is linked to how willing you are to accept and welcome change as part of the nature of things. If you accept it grudgingly, then Uranus will always be a symbol of malice; if you welcome it with open arms, it will be a deliverance and an inspiration. In the relationship chart, Uranus is where the two of you are repeatedly forced to rise to this occasion, and its contacts will tell in what areas of life it usually manifests. Well situated, it is a mutual window onto the future, flooding you both with light and clueing you into what is coming next. In such a position, it will make the relationship an eye-opener, which you come back to time and again for more. It will also tend to put you both ahead of the game emotionally and socially placing you in a leadership position among others where future thinking is concerned. In a difficult place, it will mean that you bring to each other incidents and accidents in areas where you are the most entrenched and you force each other to come to grips with ideas with which you refuse to deal. This can be a source of great mutual blame: “You made me get into this. If it weren’t for you, this never would have happened. . . ” and so on. This is particularly the case in sexual affairs in a society that is at heart so sexually conservative (even backward) and yet ruthlessly courts danger by flaunting it everywhere as if it were an everyday affair. Perhaps the only way to deal with this planet is to expect the unexpected, thus robbing it of harm and providing it with a welcome. If you are ready to harness it – like a wild horse – you can ride it far. If you turn your back, it will surely trample you. Where this occurs in the relationship chart, keep your eyes wide open, your stance wide, and your tolerance level on maximum.
URANUS in VIRGO ♅ in ♍
You may find that the path to self-discovery and the leaps you must make when you have to rearrange your thought patterns will be quite demanding and that you will have to pay particularly close attention or you won’t get to first base. This means when there is a problem or a discontent due to some special need or viewpoint of the other, it needs to be addressed specifically and in detail, not glossed over in hopes that a quick fix will solve it or make it go away. Special care must be taken to apply maximum tolerance of each other here, as each other’s peculiarities will need to be addressed. This means finding a lot out about your partner and accepting what you find with understanding and compassion, however different that might be from your own style or expectations. In an exterior mode, don’t look for universal truths but find out what reality is in your own special cases. Most of all, don’t be annoyed if you don’t get it right the first time. Impatience, next to intolerance, can be your greatest enemy. With time, you can work out the details; and once you’ve got them down, they can take you far and serve as a special kind of bond unique to yourselves to further cement the relationship.
The Relationship NEPTUNE
The effects of Neptune, another outer planet and a recent discovery, are often largely out of our control both by our unfamiliarity with its effects and the apparent nature of the planet which represents the uncertain, dreams, illusions, ideals, mystery, and the higher unexplored (and perhaps unexplorable entirely) plane of the spiritual world. Its nature is so uncertain, it’s not even known exactly when it was discovered; various claims exist from 1810 all the way up to 1846, and we may never know for sure. It may be viewed from afar with a certain amount of analysis, however. When we find an area of mystery, it is our natural instinct to provide something to fill that void. Nature abhors a vacuum and our minds rush in to fill it with every kind of speculation and fantasy, if only to have something to act on in the area. Whatever is actually there will turn up eventually. In the meantime we provide ourselves with an image which may be close enough to the truth to better help us function or may be off in fantasyland and fail us utterly if we are unwise enough to lean on it. We know only in hindsight. Thus, in a relationship chart, this point becomes the place where dreams, fantasies, hopes and ideals meet or clash, and inspire us or drag us down in confusion and conflict. Too many wars and personal battles have been fought over it needlessly, because none of these things actually existed until later. That’s the crux of it: don’t fight over what isn’t there, at least not yet. Well placed, this planet will help you aspire to higher, more selfless goals but even they can make you take them more seriously than they are. Badly positioned, it can lead to lies, deceit, and mistrust based on mutual misreading of the unknown and the foolish action taken upon it. In the end, it is a gentle, diaphanous planet that can never be forced. Dreams and fantasies belong to each of you individually; and when they are similar enough to share, whether emotionally, sexually, spiritually, or even financially, they can be the greatest of joys. If one of you tries to enforce any of it on the other, however, everything will turn distasteful and there will be no dreams left; the mist will be blown away and only a charred landscape will remain. Where this point occurs, go gently, expect nothing, and everything will be returned to you.
NEPTUNE in SCORPIO ♆ in ♏
You will experience a certain dogged determination in making your dreams come true so there is a pretty good chance that they will. You, while keeping a fairly low profile so that others have less of a chance of interfering with your success, will tend to throw a lot of your power and ability here. As an initial strategy, this is a good one. As a lifelong approach, it can leave a lot out and cause you to miss some of your greatest potentials, so a little modification might be in order. It first might be well to consider that your aspirations and the ability to fulfill them are not wholly confined to you and your actions, either separately or together. It is the group experience of sharing your ideals that will give you the support to change and broaden them realistically and it will also give you the support to go on when your own specific expectations are not met. The good of one (yourselves) is much more dependent on the good of all. The more you confine your possibilities, the fewer results you will get. What you give away has the opportunity to come back tenfold, while what you keep for yourself stays where it is with only you to defend it. Retain your intensity, but let it circulate.
The Relationship PLUTO
Of the three outer planets, Pluto is the most recently discovered (1930) and least subject to our control. As such, it is even considered the planet of power and control, ultimately because it so controls us in our attempt to overcome it. It is, of course, appropriately named after the ancient god of death, the thing which in the last analysis we cannot control; and at the most basic instinctual level, all the control we try to exercise in life is simply a ploy to cheat death a little longer. It is called the survival instinct. The point at which Pluto occurs in the relationship chart is thus, at a deep level, where we meet in our ability to face death. But it doesn’t manifest itself that way on the surface. Instead, it shows up as the methods we use to keep control in order to avoid the certainty of personal annihilation. Well placed, it will mean a partnership that simply doesn’t worry about keeping in control of the situation, secure in the faith that things will take care of themselves and when it’s time to go, you’re in God’s hands. In a bad place or aspect, it will mean continuous attempts to gain power over each other and the environment (according to aspect, sign, and house) and a penchant for compulsive behavior that easily gets out of control. Or, rather, it was never in control to begin with. In some instances, particularly sexual, this can be heightened to mystic proportions, and though it can be playing with fire it can also be very revelatory. Where prominently placed, for well or ill, it will give the relationship an aura of inescapability and predestination, something that sweeps over you both (like sex or death) and takes you out of yourselves. Similarly, you may find the relationship itself has something of this effect on others, giving you a greater power (a power which you must be careful not to abuse) over those around you. In the end, however, it is the willingness to relinquish control as well as take it that resolves problematic issues. In the meantime, the ability to step away from the relationship and out of its sway, at least in Pluto-affected areas, can be an important safety measure.
PLUTO in VIRGO in ♍
The most fundamental issues, those that reflect your individual integrity and the survival of the relationship, tend to be quite specific and material in nature, and as such have to be handled with great care to avoid conflict of an entirely pointless nature. It is very easy to closely identify with the paraphernalia of life — possessions, status, physical territory, personal surroundings and the methods of handling them — and to defend them with a compulsive passion which they do not merit. When all is said and done, you can’t take it with you, so don’t try to defend more than you need at the moment. In good aspect this can make you both feel that you’ve got all you need, whatever that may be, and you will always have it, but when difficulties arise it can make you fight to the bitter end over issues that aren’t important and which distract from the fundamental communicating and sharing that makes up a successful relationship. As difficult as it may be to remember sometimes, home is where the heart is, not where the house is, and if you look into your hearts, you’ll find home. This is not to say that what you earn and possess is not imbued with a special value unique to yourself, especially the details of how you treat each other and your personal and physical exchange; most of these will pass while you still remain. Tend to that which endures and not what passes.
LEO ASCENDANT in ♌
You may notice that when you are together you create a larger-than-life image which at times may be difficult to live up to individually. It is as if you carry your own party around with you wherever you go and fire up those around you to get things moving. Sometimes you may find it more tiring to be the party host than the party guest, and you may need some quality time individually to rest and sort things out. Nevertheless, you are gifted with an energizing facade when you are together which you both can ride to give you an extra boost of enthusiasm, and you may find others looking to you for joint leadership who weren’t so supportive of you individually. It would be easy to resent that, but that’s politics and to a certain extent you make yourselves into public figures just by the chemistry of being together. Go for the playful and fun side of it and don’t take yourselves too seriously. You’ll find that your credibility and support in your social surroundings is heightened proportionately. Pride goeth before the fall, but the jester never comes to harm, so keep it light if you want to get good results. You don’t have to seek out being the center of attention; just let your feelings radiate and the world will beat a path to your door.
URANUS in SECOND HOUSE ♅ in 2nd
It is likely that your approach to your sources of income will be unconventional or that your resources in general will be sporadic or irregular in their output. This may come from circumstances beyond your control, but more likely will be the result of approaching income production in new ways. Whatever the case, if either or both of you depend on income you produce together it will be a good idea to buffer it with a layer of savings or other independent income-producing investments to tide you over the sudden ups and downs. Where you fail to do so and this is your economic life blood, money can become a real source of argument and unrest between you. It is one thing to see things in a different light, another to suffer as a result. This may not be as easy to solve as suggested, as the problem may be a fundamental way of viewing how it all ought to be accomplished and such surface remedies could be against your principle. Nevertheless, you can see and develop possibilities for sustenance that would bypass others and thus have access to resources others do not. In addition, you will see the good and original in physical possessions that ordinarily go unused, so other people’s junk can be your gold mine.
URANUS sextile NEPTUNE ♅ ⚹ ♆
This aspect happens in the sky only twice every 172 years, and the last time it occurred was in 1966-67, which means you were both born then or equidistantly before and after it in time. Thus, it has something of a generational tinge to it. Symbolically, it means a nice balance between your ideals (Neptune) and new discoveries about how they must be implemented (Uranus). Well, consider the year. It was height of the legendary 1960’s when the post World War II “baby boomers” were coming into adulthood and idealism was in high favor. Revolutionary technology seemed to promise to make these youthful dreams a reality, and everything was very mellow for a few short years, spawning Sergeant Pepper and flower children. Alas, it was not to be, not then, not like that. Fixed in your relationship chart, it gives you the talent to make just this sort of dream come true, to evenly balance the practical with the ideal, to match the technology with the dream. This can apply to your personal emotional and sexual growth, your social progress, and even your financial possibilities. Whereas in history this aspect has passed, not to repeat until well into the 21st century, for you it will not pass and is a lifetime opportunity. Perhaps the children of the flower children can make the flower child’s dreams come true.
URANUS conjunct PLUTO ♅ ☌
This is a generational aspect and its significance is derived from the fact that you were both born in the middle 1960’s or equidistant from that era. The symbolism of that era goes a long way to describe how it will work in your situation. During that time, the principles of Uranus (truth) and Pluto (force) came together and created a movement across the world where force was adopted in the interest of gaining change and the implementation of what people believed was truth. The same issues, at a basic level, will be operative between you and getting to the truth will have a somewhat compulsive aspect in the way you approach it. The necessity to speak out about what you believe is something you must leave room for in each other and tolerance will be the order of the day if you are to get along. More important is to understand that there is tremendous motivation here to do what is right, even if it is not expressed in a recognizable way. If you think it’s not being done well or appropriately, avoid making an issue of it and consciously look for compromise because unconsciously that is the last position you will spontaneously adopt. Getting it right takes time, and what you first view as the ultimate truth can change and mellow with time, and you will need to allow yourselves the kind of space that will allow you to grow toward each other. Otherwise, you could look back later and see that you really agreed at a basic level, but didn’t give yourselves the time to realize it.
PLUTO in SECOND HOUSE in 2nd
This position can have several effects, none of them lightweight. The first can be an overriding interest in money, possessions, and the control of the physical properties around you. This can mean your relationship can be a gateway to wealth and possessions, but it can at the same time give them an inappropriate priority that eclipses the other parts of life that are, in the long run, more valuable than things you can’t take with you when you exit. As long as you own goods and don’t let goods own you, the dark side of this can be avoided. Where this is a love relationship, sex can become a compelling issue and may become the bottom line of what goes on, dominating the other forms of intellectual and emotional communication that might be developing more freely if given room to grow. Another problem that may arise is a set of values motivated by the need to control each other or your surroundings that can warp your sense of reality and your human priorities. If, however, you can take a middle path where you accept the extra power over your environment this relationship brings and let it lead you without controlling you, great good can come of what you have, not only for yourselves, but for those you can benefit by using the talents you possess. When you use your tangible power over possessions to transform the lives of yourselves and your compatriots, you will realize your rewards.
NEPTUNE in FOURTH HOUSE ♆ in 4th
Home life and the private seclusion of the two of you has special appeal, and you may indeed idolize the “perfect” safe and secure family situation. The problem will be, however, realizing that dream because no situation is really ideal and disappointment will always be sneaking in somewhere. It can be too easy to hold yourselves up to a standard of perfection which may not be feasible and wind up blaming each other or yourselves for failure which was inevitable. This is further compounded by hindsight, as you will find that by constant dissatisfaction with the present, the past will always look rosier, even though you will have had the same problems when you were living in the “good old days”. Every effort to gladly accept the situation you are in and enjoy the good parts of it while dismissing the bad will be rewarded by the realization, at least in part, of your dream family situation. This applies not just to your traditional family by blood, but to those friends and compatriots which make up the immediate intimate world around you. If you let them set their own standards and work together to achieve joint dreams as well as what you yourselves wish for, you will find that the “good old days” are right now, and made good indeed by your mutual atmosphere of tolerance and camaraderie.
NEPTUNE sextile PLUTO ♆ ⚹
This is a rare aspect, happening only twice in five hundred years. It’s most recent occurrence is happening as this is being written, beginning in the 1940’s and ending in the 1990’s, and applies to those born then or on opposite sides of it. Perhaps it is too soon to tell, but some educated speculation is worth while. Neptune is associated with aspirations and ideals, currently in conjunction with Uranus (shock, sudden change) which will also be making the sextile with Pluto (force, transformation) or close to it. It is, in short, a watershed period when a radical new arrangement of world order is being inexorably forced into being. Thus, this is a generational aspect, something you share in common with billions of others of your generation. Although in the sky it will have passed on, you will have it for life, which means it will be your inescapable task to be implementors of the new planetary culture born at this time. Therefore, where this is tied in to the rest of your chart by aspect and house, these will be the areas where you have to take your place in this order, to make your own personal contribution to what is perhaps the greatest transformation the human world has ever known. Heavy? Yes, but no different from everyone else your age. Do it well, knowing that you are the founding ancestors of an age undreamed of in human history. Your great-grandchildren will be looking back on you, hopefully with pride.
NEPTUNE conjunct SOUTH NODE ♆ ☌ ☋
There can be a fuzzy, confused quality to this relationship, partly because you never know what it is going to bring to you, and partly because what you receive as a result of being together is difficult to put your finger on. You may find that just when everything is becoming clear and you think you know where you stand, something comes along to put your mutual positions together in doubt and you find you are on muddy ground again. Shifting winds will seem to dog you and there is almost a quality of intent about it, as if someone were pulling the rug out from under you in revenge for unknown and perhaps only imagined wrongs. Whatever the reason, it will be difficult to have your feet firmly planted on the ground here, but that doesn’t mean disaster, but only that you need to be ready to change direction, to bob and weave, to steer with the wind and tack like real sailors instead of expecting to go from point A to point B in a straight line. The more you lean on your expectations, the more you will be disappointed, and the more you look on life as an adventure that will float you to yet unimagined shores, the more likely it will become just that. When life is a dream, you can only dream on, and you may find you’ve got a better grip on it than the rest of the more hard-headed populous.
NEPTUNE square ASCENDANT ♆ □
You may have a bit of an image problem with this relationship, both in regard to your exterior image and your self-image. It may be difficult to convince others to take you seriously or to really understand what it is you do together as on first glance they will make an incorrect estimation of you. It’s not that you aren’t credible particularly, just that you look like you do and are something other than what is truly the case. It may be your clothes, your physical appearance, or the vibes they think they’re getting from you, but whatever it is it doesn’t match and you may have to adopt appropriate camouflage or avoid doing important deals in person where such confusion may arise. Similarly, you may be equally as puzzled about yourselves and keep chasing for a “reason” to be together, some external goal for your conjunction which justifies your remaining together yet eludes your grasp. In fact, you really don’t need one, and your relationship (or anyone else’s) is quite enough reason unto itself so don’t bother worrying yourselves over it. If you must look for reasons, borrow a leaf from mountain climbers’ book of motivation: because it’s there.
SATURN in EIGHTH HOUSE ♄ in 8th
This is a somewhat difficult position financially, particularly as credit becomes the dominant force in economics, as you may find it too difficult to come by when you need it or ignore the implications of how you handle it and therefore not use it to your best advantage. Whether you think you need it or not, it will be good to do what is necessary to maintain a reasonable credit rating if only to get along in the system as it stands. This inclination to simplify also extends to structures and processes of reality that have to do with time and the aging process. You can too easily take for granted that things are as they are because they have always been that way, a sort of “in-the-now” timelessness that can leave you high and dry when the relentless causes that time grinds so fine trip you up because you hadn’t bothered to investigate them as they unraveled. This is not so much the result of a devotion to living each moment for itself but a worry about what you might find out if you looked too deep or probed too far. Yet these very things which are so elusive are in a way the bedrock on which you will come to rest in times of difficulty, so it will be well to chase after the unknown and plumb the depths of areas you are inclined to avoid so they do not sneak up on you. Reality is a continuum from which you arose and will return to, and your greatest defense may lie in increasing your knowledge of that fact.
NORTH NODE in TENTH HOUSE ☊ in 10th
Responsibility and reward are the key concepts behind the Moon’s north and south nodes and the houses where they fall you will find to be the classrooms of life where your most important lessons may be learned. A concentration on the tenth and fourth houses means that circumstances will repeatedly bring you back to a focus on public and private life, where one begins and the other ends, and how they reinforce each other or conflict. The emphasis will be on the public side, and as a professional relationship this will prosper, as you find increasing opportunity to make commitments outside the home. The problem will be to see that it doesn’t get out of hand and you find yourselves driven your exterior connections because you have taken on more than you can handle. This can be particularly damaging on the home side, where surprises both good and bad await you and will require your attention when they appear. If you don’t have the time to spare for reworking and mending on the inner front, you may find your support lines crumbling and you no longer have the backing to continue on the public front. It can be a tricky situation to balance, mainly because it is unpredictable and you don’t have access to the kind of control you would like to maintain. But then, that’s what learning is about, and once you have discovered what you came together for, the lesson will be a fruitful and profitable one.
MOON in ELEVENTH HOUSE ☽ in 11th
Your immediate reaction to situations will tend to drive you closer together and at the same time draw upon the special closeness that you already have. It will be easy for this relationship to develop into a deep friendship with all the joys and creativity which that implies. This is a very good position for the Moon. Where problems arise, the tendency will be not to blame each other but to assume good faith on each other’s part and work it out with a smile. It is also likely that you can fairly easily work your way up in the world of social relationships, as you will know just who to befriend and who will lead you to a dead end. This is at least in part because of an ability to spot the same kind of natural communication in others that you have together, often a major indication of a successful personality. Thus you will often find support in your efforts without having to try as hard as others do. Things will just tend to come more naturally, without a struggle, though you may not be able to put your fingers on the reasons. Relax and enjoy it, because that is in fact the key: your ability to not worry about how to make things go well, but just to let them roll along in your favor.
MOON conjunct VENUS ☽ ☌ ♀
Love and beauty abound in this relationship, even if it is only a professional one, and a great deal of emotion is expended presenting yourselves in the best possible fashion. You look good together, because you care a lot about it and make it an art form more than just a facade to impress other people. This can induce some jealousy and competition, not in each other but in those who feel they are somehow less attractive than you are, which is regrettable, because you aren’t out to put anybody down, you just like to be your best. You treasure your feelings as well as your appearance, and handle them with the utmost care so as not to offend or express yourself in an emotionally harmful way. In this respect, you would make great parents or be good at any other pursuit that required a loving, nurturing approach. It is also good for working in the arts where an innate love and recognition of beauty are a primary motivation. If this relationship at times seems too good to be true, just relax and enjoy it, because it will likely be as pleasant as it seems. There are few aspects where it is difficult to come up with anything negative to say about it, but this is definitely one.
MOON conjunct MARS ☽ ☌ ♂
This relationship can have its rough spots and you may often find yourselves jumping into situations you should have had the restraint to stay out of. A general tendency toward rashness comes from a high level of emotion and emotional reactions which are acted upon without first working them through. You will have strong feelings about each other and about things in general, and you will be very likely to express them strongly as well, which can cause disagreements if you are not careful, but it also means that when you care, there is no doubt about it and you don’t hide it. Thus your relationship can sometimes turn into a firestorm of emotions; love, anger, passion, joy, all expressed in the extreme. Once you realize this, you should go to some lengths to be forgiving of the angry remark made impulsively or the inappropriate and embarrassing response that should have been suppressed. It’s not done out of spite or foolishness, it’s just that you bring on these sorts of things in each other and they have their good side as well as their bad, so take one with the other. Any way you look at it, in this relationship you’re in for a ride, so fasten your seat belts and try not to run too many red lights!
MOON square SATURN ☽ □ ♄
There is emotional hesitancy in this relationship that is likely to put distance between you and cause you to pull your punches as a functioning unit as well. Part of this may be manifested in a natural reaction of criticizing first and asking questions later. When you accent the negative, it tends to be a self-fulfilling prophecy and things turn out as poorly as you expect. It will be good to look for the bright side and emphasize it, even if it seems like only a glimmer. Another problem may be a disinclination to give full emotional disclosure. When you hold back from each other, you won’t be playing with a full deck and it will be easy to misjudge each other’s motivations and difficult to cooperate. One remedy is to conscientiously go a second mile with each other. When you would normally stop — whether it be in conversation, work, or even lovemaking — pick up the pace and keep on going. You will be surprised how much you have left in you and what you have been missing out on by dying out too soon. The negative effect of squares is best counteracted by repeated efforts to correct the situation until you can see your trail of errors to a corrected and stabilized pattern of behavior. The desired effect here is to raise your emotional energy level and bring a quicker and fuller level of response to each other and to the world around you.
VENUS in ELEVENTH HOUSE ♀ in 11th
A convivial love of intimate friendship and companionship suffuses your relationship which favors achieving what you want. Because you love and appreciate the special personal connections you make, you will find yourselves appreciated in return, not only in the emotional sense, but often in the social and professional sense. When you mix good feelings with business, you get more business. It’s amazing how many people fail to make this observation. You’re not likely to make this mistake. Still, the lesson is in the inner feelings of affection you seek and produce in each other and among others, which by nature elevate all concerned. It is your ability to exteriorize and apply to others the personal care and freedom of your feelings that will put you in demand as a resource of love and harmony in the outside world. The effect of this can make you a bit exclusive, if you do not take care, as it will push you ever higher on the social ladder, something that you may come to feel is deserved and which, of course, is not. Your rise or fall will be due to sincerity and happenstance, so hang on to your modesty and you’ll do OK! When fortune smiles, smile back.
VENUS square SATURN ♀ □ ♄
It can be very difficult to fully open yourselves up to this relationship and explore all the potential for enjoyment that it offers. This may be because of a limiting social situation which prevents you from becoming fully engaged or it may be because you feel you have to hold back for some internal reason — a misplaced sense of propriety or just plain guilt. In any case there is a built-in set of inhibitions here that lead you to expect disappointment and therefore set yourselves up for it. For obvious reasons, personally and professionally this can be damaging. If you don’t fully commit yourselves to go for the brass ring, you’re not going to get it. It’s as if you don’t really want it. Well, you may not, and that is OK, too. If you don’t set up a lot of expectations for each other, you won’t be disappointed and the difficulties presented by this aspect will be largely defused. If you want this to be a big commitment however, you will have to stand back and see what opportunities are presented and don’t take no for an answer until you have gotten everything you want. Even so, you will have disappointments, but rather than dwelling on them, brush them off and go for the next goal. What can cripple you is not the reality of the situation but your attitudes toward it. Keep telling yourselves your glass is half full, not half empty, and eventually you will fill it up.
MARS in ELEVENTH HOUSE ♂ in 11th
Because a great deal of effort and energy will go into maintaining and improving this relationship, it has a lot going for it. In fact, when all else fails, you are more likely to pay attention to each other than anyone else. The care and feeding of this partnership will be its most pleasant aspect, and the more you do for each other the more you will want to do. You will likely have success in cultivating friendships in the best of places and the fact that you are together will give you access to connections that neither of you could have made alone. This is primarily because you insist upon keeping good feelings at the forefront and making enjoyment of life a primary reason to be together. For a love affair, this position is ideal, with great attention not only to sexuality but to the most tender aspects of intimacy that make love into friendship and vice-versa. On the professional level, your ability to work amicably together without a second thought will allow you to move swiftly and trustingly on a handshake agreement while others are still negotiating their positions. If there is any problem here, it might be one of too much optimism, as the assumption of success together is a foregone conclusion, though not a realistic one in every venture. Nobody’s perfect, but you’re likely to feel like the exception to the rule. If anything will do that for you, this position of Mars will. Enjoy.
MARS square SATURN ♂ □ ♄
There can be what might be characterized as an energy crisis in this relationship, where you find you run out of steam before the job is done or don’t have the get up and go to throw yourselves into it in the first place. This can apply in any facet of life, so it can equally cool off your sex life or cause you to drop the ball in crucial negotiations with a competitor. Even though it may come across as a weakness, its origins are in a propensity to censor your actions so that you can’t deliver the follow-through that is needed in a one-two punch. This may occur because one of you may feel the other somehow disapproves of what is going on, or it might come from simple, overt criticism of the way you take action together. The result will be the same, however, and basically the remedy will be the same as well. Simply delegate more energy to any given task than you think you will need, and don’t stop until you’ve expended it all. If you do that, the chances are you’ll just have enough, at least at the beginning. Ultimately, this aspect leads to great economy of energy and extreme precision of motion, but only after you have honed the technique down over a long period of time. In the meantime, avoid laying blame on each other for something that is, essentially, a natural obstacle. You are not doing this to each other, yourselves are both having it done to you as a function of circumstance. Muster the extra effort, put smiles on your faces, and try some more.
JUPITER in ELEVENTH HOUSE ♃ in 11th
Close friendship, its nature, development and preservation will be an important focus of your relationship, and by and large a pleasant one indeed. Many of your greatest joys will come from bringing people together for mutual betterment, which often will bring betterment on yourselves in the process. It’s kind of a vicious circle turned happily upside down: by caring and doing favors for someone else, either personally or professionally, you earn their appreciation and favors in return. This raises you up a notch, inside and out, and your first inclination is to try it again on a higher level, where again it repeats. Because you appreciate the best and strive for it, not only for yourselves but for the world at large, your environment will tend to treat you in a kindly fashion in return. Whereas some would say you will be blessed with good fortune, it is more that you embrace good fortune and it embraces you back. Thus you don’t use it up, but reinvest it — a lesson you will not have to be hard-taught unlike some others. If you are painted as starry-eyed idealists at times, there may be more than some truth to it, but you will put your ideals to work for you rather than just hoping something will come of them. “Realists” are too-often folks who just don’t follow-through and reciprocate when they know they ought to.
JUPITER sextile URANUS ♃ ⚹ ♅
There is a very inventive and creative streak to your relationship that allows you to experiment and to be especially innovative without suffering much of the dangers which going overboard in that direction can engender. When you grow together, it will not necessarily be at all in the same ways or directions as your peers, and that makes it the more interesting for the newness of the ground you break. Personally, you are likely to give yourselves a lot more freedom to be yourselves, even when that means being different from each other, because as long as it doesn’t go to extremes, vive le difference! As long as at least one of you benefits from an experience and neither are hurt, you will be willing to try out anything, which will open up your lives to so many rewarding possibilities from which others shut themselves off because of fear or prejudice. In the professional world, this same principle applies, and your ability to open yourselves to new and unusual solutions to otherwise intractable problems will make you successful innovators financially and socially. There is more than one way to approach even the most ordinary challenges, and you’re likely to discover quite a few options no one had been willing to try, and everyone will be the better off for it. Moreover, because you are sensible about the choices you select to experiment with, you will find much less resistance to your innovations than others who go to greater extremes or make a point about how different they are.
JUPITER trine NEPTUNE ♃ △ ♆
There is a strong idealistic and spiritual underpinning to this relationship that is not preachy or overstated but buoys up your feelings to seek for the very best you can achieve. The drive upward is not a headlong gallop toward redemption nor is it a fool’s self-delusion that you can be saved by a given belief or dogma. Rather, it is a warm, inner knowledge that the spiritual call is real and that you will get there if you’re willing to take your time. Because this is a mutually supportive aspect, you have a natural talent to sense what is leading you where you eventually want to go and what is leading you astray. You also realize there is no such thing as a short cut in the spiritual quest, so you aren’t easily sidetracked by promises of instant enlightenment. In a personal love involvement, this allows you to retain the physical joys of sexuality while adding the heightened experience of using it as a basis for a spiritual union. On the professional level, this will mean you have the highest possible ethical standards, something that will make you trusted and respected in whatever pursuit you may have chosen. You know that short term gain cannot supplant long term values without losing something far greater than a few quick bucks. When people put their faith in you, they know they will not be disappointed.
JUPITER sextile PLUTO ♃ ⚹
There is a quiet certainty to the way you innovate and grow within this relationship that won’t quit and won’t take no for an answer. The reasons for this lie in a mixture of faith in what you are doing and the willingness to use necessary force to accomplish your tasks. When you see an opportunity, it takes on the quality of a mission, wherein you may feel there is more than just your personal interests at stake and that somehow greater environmental forces are helping sweep you along to realize it. Often that is literally the case, as you will have a feeling for what the wave of the future is, but even if you aren’t strictly in tune your clear determination can win the day over forces aligned against you without quite such a clear self-mandate. When they hesitate and you don’t, you win. Of course this is a big help in the professional end of things, as you can be a quiet steamroller against others who would rather give ground to than put up a fight. Be sure you’re right, then go ahead, as once you have taken action you may well find that it cannot easily be undone. Personally, this will give you a feeling of inner validation from being together, that you are indeed more than the sum of your parts and that when you stand united you can accomplish much more than when you stand alone.
SUN in TWELFTH HOUSE ☉ in 12th
This is the most difficult house position the sun can have, and as such carries with it very serious challenges that must be met head on in order for this relationship to succeed. You will first likely find that you have an unerring sense of how to tread on each other’s sensitive points, and you will easily mistake weaknesses for strengths and vice-versa in each other and in judging the potential of the relationship. If it is true that you learn the most from your mistakes, you have discovered a great reward here, one that after great patience, commitment and understanding, can offer many compensations. If you were looking for a diagnostic tool to spot and strengthen your weak points, you’ve got that here, too, and you are likely to uncover them in each other with great (and often unintentional) regularity. If your reaction is to condemn, blame, grieve, rage, resign, resent, or lay anything but patience and forgiveness on each other, this will self-destruct before too long. If you look at it as a Ph. D. course in service and self-understanding, where the focus is to welcome problems as challenges to growth instead of as obstacles to each other, then you may have more than a diamond in the rough. Expect the worst, and it will get better and better; expect unearned bliss and you will perish! The question here for both of you is not only whether you can do it in time (eventually, you will), but whether you’ve got the time to do it. Not every challenge in life must be met right away, and it might be the happier and wiser decision to let this one go until later.
SUN conjunct JUPITER☉ ☌ ♃
Your relationship has a wonderful, expansive feeling about it that makes you feel you could take on just about anything. The fact is, you probably can, and you will certainly be willing to give it a try. You are likely to be the eternal optimists, and by simply having a positive attitude you will make things go right for you. Generosity and good-heartedness are never in short supply, and you will always volunteer to go that extra mile without ever being asked. Professionally this is a very good position as it favors creativity and growth even during hard times. If there is any problem here, it might be a penchant for overdoing things or not knowing when to quit because everyone else has run out of steam. Do remember that others may not be quite so fortunate or filled with enthusiasm as yourselves, and that your own physical stamina may not be as great as your emotional readiness to keep on going. But with that one caveat, you can pretty much depend on this relationship being a special resource for both of you to enliven and rejuvenate yourselves with every time you are together, though for the aforementioned reasons, you may also need to take a rest from time to time and catch your breath.
SUN trine SATURN ☉ △ ♄
There is a very robust stability to this relationship, where the energy flows along very well-establish lines and serves as a protection against the sudden buffets and abrasions of life. You will not need to throw a party to express your care and concern for each other and your friends, but quiet get-togethers which better display the kind of grace and dignity you want to express are the order of the day. There is a natural conservation of energy here as well, and you are more likely to be together for the long haul than for a quickie. By careful corralling of your internal resources and dissemination of them only where they are really needed, you will have a lot more stamina than most around you. This works well in personal or professional circumstances, though perhaps better in the latter, as the emotional element is somewhat restricted and channeled here and mad passion is less likely than good control and wise allocation of resources. Nevertheless, there is not much bad to be said about this very supportive aspect, which will not only shore up your own relationship but can also make you a joint shoulder to lean on by those who have their act less together. When you have the opportunity to share, try to do so, as it not only helps out others but keeps your survival skills well-honed so they don’t get rusty on you down the road.
SUN trine NEPTUNE ☉ △ ♆
There can be a high spiritual flow to this relationship, as you can connect very comfortably on spiritual issues and tend to agree upon the dreams and ideals you pursue in life. Whereas others may tend to chase illusions and figments of their imaginations, you have pretty much got your feet on the ground in this respect, being able to sort out what can reasonably be achieved and what is just pipe dreams. Further, you feel quite strongly motivated to see that what can be done realistically, is. Communication can go on between you with great ease at a non-verbal level and frequently will, leaving others somewhat mystified about how you both know what’s going on when they don’t. It might be well to explain yourselves now and again, even if just for the exercise of putting what you feel into words so that others can share them also giving another view on your own reality. Natural talent for communications, like anything else, require keeping your techniques in trim and developing interchange with others to see how they do it, even though it is not as well as you do. What you make up for in ease of delivery, they may achieve through struggle and hard work, suffering illusions until the truth heaves into sight. Then your strengths become reborn and reinforced within yourselves.
MERCURY in TWELFTH HOUSE ☿ in 12th
This is a very difficult and challenging position for Mercury, because it forces you to explore the dark side of yourselves and the world around you, and you may not always like what you find. It will make you great troubleshooters, because you’ll have a nose for finding out where the trouble is. It makes it very difficult to keep secrets from each other (or from others, unfortunately), so you will need to be very open and willing to admit your shortcomings in the interests of improving them. This can be a great position for deep self-understanding, but it will take a lot of mutual tolerance to let each other make mistakes and go on forgiving, remembering that this is how you learn and grow, even when it is painful. For this reason, yours is a relationship that should not be taken on lightly, as it will take up a lot of intellectual and emotional time to make it come to fruition, and if you just ignore the way things develop you will be wasting each other’s time and courting disaster. Ask yourselves if there is that much room (and patience) in your lives to succeed at this sort of venture. If the commitment is strong, or if circumstances compel, go for it. If not, you might consider sparing yourselves and looking for greener pastures.
MERCURY conjunct ASCENDANT ☿ ☌
Communication is the front door of your relationship and when people see you together they see articulation, clarity of thought, which is an advantage in social situations. In fact, you will always find a lot to say, both to each other and to anyone you mutually deal with. You may find that just being together makes you better able to put into words what you might otherwise have had difficulty expressing. Thus you may feel safe from worry about not being able to talk to each other, for you will always be able to say exactly what you think. What you really mean in your hearts may not be what your heads are saying, however, and it would be good to keep that in mind, so that you will not only listen to what you say but attend to what you feel. Professionally, this position can only be an advantage, as communication and the understanding of technology and the manipulation of information is the key to the future and you are bound to improve each other’s read on anything in that division. Because you will always be there with a ready word, you will also have an aura of youthfulness when together which can give you a lift emotionally and an extra advantage in a culture where youth is worshipped beyond its merit.
