I ran into a pretty unique situation yesterday, working with a chart with three strong oppositions. I’m not talking about a stellium in one sign, opposing planets in another sign. I’m talking about three strong, highly significant, independent pairs of opposing planets. Like this:
Sun opposite Pluto
Venus opposite Uranus
Mars opposite Neptune
Oppositions in a natal chart create a lot of energy. The person is always going back and forth, one way or the other. Generally there is another person involved, as I explained here:
It common people believe that one aspect in a chart overpowers another but it never works that way. Everything in the chart is contributing. So let’s say this person with three oppositions has one in Earth, one in Fire and one in Water. Can you see what a job this is? Can one relationship allow the person to experience all three oppositions in one relationship? I tend to doubt it.
What if you’re going to partner with someone like this. They are going to be a particular type of “busy”. Because it they pick an end of any or all of their oppositions, the other end beckons! And it is ignored or neglected for too long, it’s going to erupt.
I felt a lot of compassion for this person. Sometimes I see a chart like this, that looks back at me and won’t be denied. I don’t know that anyone has covered this, anywhere in the world, so here you go.
Do you have multiple oppositions in you natal chart? What’s life like for you?
