The most evident effect of the composite chart is the ascendant. If you want to know how you appear as a couple look to the rising sign. This is the placement that represents how you look when you are together. Leo rising couples are radiant and regal, dramatic. They look like fun. With a Scorpio ascendant you’ll have a subtle and compelling power about you. Perhaps you look a bit dangerous. My man and I have Libra on the ascendant and have been told we’re an attractive and pleasant couple. Because of this I try to keep him near me at all times.
Planets in conjunction to the ascendant add their energy to that of the sign. For example, Neptune obscures, adds a shimmer of chameleon-like essence. A couple with Neptune conjunct the ascendant is subtle, perhaps at times magical. Add Jupiter to the ascendant and you get a cheery effect, or a bigger presence, or on a bad day, perhaps you’re a bit much.
Planets in other aspects to the rising sign also influence the overall impression. A square can introduce an effect that is seemingly at odds with the overall appearance. It can, however, create an interesting mix. Planets trining the rising add an element of ease. Venus trine the ascendant couples tend to be popular.
