That last bit, the 4th degree Knight and the Decoy Catholic is indicative of several astrological themes in the relationship between the soldier and I.
For one, I have Uranus (odd) in the 7th house (partner) and the soldier has Uranus in aspect to Venus which is the same exchange. We are not interested in relationship with no freak factor. Things unexpected have appeal.
Same energy from another angle, it illustrates how we both allow the partner to be an individual. If the soldier wants to show up in church with a sword, well I assume he has his reasons. If I want to write our conversations on the Internet… well I guess if you don’t like it, he can always run his sword through you. Why? Because we are friends. And this is the same energy from a third angle (Uranus rules friendship). So while he defends me with his sword I do the same with my keyboard and this brings me back to the topic I started on and then abandoned – Synastry.
As I mention in the video, one person’s Sun trine the others Moon only goes so far. In fact I would say this other kind of stuff goes a lot further. It’s as if the straight synastry is flat and this other (affinity) is more robust and three dimensional.
That above is part one of my series on synastry. Part two is here: Painting vs Painting By Numbers
