“What does not satisfy when we find it, was not the thing we were desiring.”
If I were to have to pick the most potent part of synastry, chart comparison, in evaluating relationships it would definitely be the Moon. The Moon by sign, element and aspect illustrates what feeds us, what satisfies. Each Moon signature provides a manual for the care and feeding of that individual. The Moon does not necessarily relate to what you think you want, but it will tell you what you need.
Begin by assessing the qualities of the first person’s Moon, by sign, by element and by aspect. Next compare the planets and angles in the second chart with that Moon Map. What placements in the second chart are in direct support of the first person’s Moon (aspects of ease, matching elements)? What placements are in positions of contention (aspects of challenge, elemental clashing)?
You then perform the same routine in reverse. What you’re looking for is the answers to these questions: 1) what does each person need? 2) can the other provide enough of whatever that is? 3) is there a reasonable balance of what each person needs and the other can provide, a balance on both sides of the equation?
How familiar are you with your own Moon needs? What about those of your partner?
