I find nothing so compelling as love. It is the subject in which I am most able to lose myself in a drug-like (or tv-like) state of bliss. While synastry is the best tool for assessing how individuals interact, there is something fascinating about the idea of a chart on how they merge. The composite chart is the chart of the relationship itself. It is a chart made from the melding of the two individuals’ birth charts, made by plotting the midpoints of each placement. Instead of the comparison of two individuals we are looking at the chart of a third entity, the relationship itself, which only exists in theory.
I find the whole concept very Neptunian, very Piscean. Melding, blending, a chart of something intangible, that is wholly Pisces and Neptune, as is bliss.
So the composite chart can be read much like a natal chart. It’s helpful to compare each individual’s natal chart (synastry) to the composite to see how the relationship energies affect the individual. Also helpful is looking at transits to the composite chart. Though this is a theoretical entity, the chart of the relationship, it is also a chart of the midpoints of two people, midpoints that can be activated by transit.
Do you find the composite chart reflective of your relationship?
