Elsa, I had a question about why aspects may mean one thing in a natal chart, but in either a synastry or composite chart, they can mean something else. OR, with transits, too. For example, some aspects that I would typically associate as being negative are considered positive when looked at as part of a transit or any type of relationship report.
Why is the interpretation of the energy so different, depending on what type of chart you are reading? Is there an easy way to figure this out?

It’s hard to answer a question like this because I don’t know what you have been reading, where you’ve been reading it, etc. But I can make some guesses and give you some framework.
For example, some aspects that I would typically associate as being negative are considered positive when looked at as part of a transit or any type of relationship report.
This might be explained, if you are reading different astrologers. Some tend to spin things UP. Others see doom ’round every corner. It’s also common that an astrologer has bias for or against some combination of planets. If they had sex they liked with a person who has X+Y in their chart, that’s that! It’s a sexy combination.
In their experience, that might be true. But how broad is the range of their experience?
Some people write in a way that seems authoritative…when they’re saying is flat out ridiculous. My first advice is that you consider the source!
You’ll fare best if you take the time to find exceptional sources and stick with them. It’s like diagnosing yourself on the internet. There is definitely good info out there, but there is also a sea of crap.
To resolve this, I would pay attention to the writer’s voice. Do they seem balanced? Are they overly dramatic? Is their ego stamped on everything they say? Where are they coming from?
If you ask questions like these and you like the answers, you’ll know how to weigh what you read. If you have to discount the writer, I wouldn’t read it at all. This is because un-reading something is hard to do.
If I’ve not been clear, I don’t think a particular aspect changes it’s tone, depending on the scenario. I’ll give you an example of all this…
I have Lupus. Depending on who I read on the internet, I don’t have Lupus, it can be cured by putting a flower behind my ear, I was a bad, terrible dude in my previous life…you get the idea.
Be discerning about what and who you read. You’ll be surprised how quickly the fog clears!
