I am trying to understand composite charts and having a hard time wrapping my mind around this concept…
I have a composite chart of a relationship with a packed 8th house: Pluto, Uranus, Jupiter conjunction in 8th house- square composite Venus in 5th. Sun and moon in 4th, so this is a serious relationship.
I admit i am quite nervous about these aspects. How do you think a 8th pluto square 5th venus composite can be handled? I read all over the web that this is unmanageable. I love your positive and wise insight that energy is neutral until directed.
Do you have any good advice for me where to direct this? My confusion is because this is composite- and most astrologers say that there is no way to work or change composites – because they are the concept that you can not change….as opposed to synastry which is manageable.
You’ve touched on a number of things here. I’ll address what stands out to me. Others can comment.
First, I don’t know who these “most astrologers” are but the idea you can’t work with a composite charts seems ludicrous to me. Ludicrous and defeatist.
“I can’t do anything with my hair! I guess I better shave my head – it’s hopeless.”
Come on! You work with what you’ve got!
Secondly, you state that this is a serious relationship. It is? It’s only serious if the two people decide to make it serious. We have free will, see? If one person tries to leave a relationship, what are you going to do? Wave a paper at them and tell the it’s serious?
I’m not trying to be mean. I’m trying to tell you that you’re upset over “air”. Over something fictitious.
Now in regards to Venus in the 5th, what’s wrong with that? Sounds creative to me.
And what’s wrong with Pluto in the 8th, his natural house?
I suppose the two people might kill each other, but I would be more inclined to expect them to express their collective energy (pluto) creatively (5th) in a way that benefits both (Venus).
