Many people feel that oppositions between two charts are problematic. You don’t see things eye to eye (Mercury). Your values oppose (Venus. Your way of going about things (Mars) is very different.
Simply speaking, these things are true. But there are other considerations.
For example, my Mercury in Libra opposes my husband’s Mercury in Aries. However, Aries-ruler Mars is conjunct my natal Mercury. Consequently, we both have minds and mouths on fire. There is a match, as much as there is a clash.
I also think oppositions in synastry are more difficult to deal with, when you’re young. You want to be around your own kind, basically. But as you get older you realize it’s good to have some balance in your life.
You can learn and grow by coming to understand a person who thinks or feels or acts differently than you do. This is true, even if their thoughts and feelings and actions, oppose your own by 180 degrees!
Most successful partnerships have at least one strong opposition between the charts. Reading this, I’m sure you see why.
A synastry report will tell you how you and your partner interact. The oppositions are often what keeps your relationship, fresh!
How well do you deal with people who have planets that oppose your own?
