“I’ll start walking your way, you start walking mine; we’ll meet in the middle ‘neath that old Georgia pine. We gain a lot of ground ’cause we both give a little; ain’t no road too long when we meet in the middle.”
There are two types of charts of the relationship itself, the composite and the Davison relationship chart. The Davison chart is the chart of an actual point in time and place that is the midpoint or average between the birth places and birth times of the two individuals. That is to say that it is a real chart that exists in real time. The composite is not. The composite is calculated by taking the planets and angles and calculating the midpoints between them.
The composite shows each planet in a position exactly between your individual planets, Sun to Sun, Moon to Moon, etc. You meet in the middle. That sounds a lot like compromise to me, neutral ground. When you look at the composite on its own you see the qualities of that neutral meeting place. You can compare the composite to each natal chart to see how well you resonate to the meeting place. To use metaphor, the midpoint between L.A. and Hawaii is in the middle of the ocean. How well does each of you swim?
On a goofy note I’ve always had an odd thought about the Davison chart. Out there are people who have the same chart as the relationship. Would I like them?
Do you like the energy you see in the composite chart of your relationship (past or present)? How well does it work with the energy of your own chart (synastry)?
