Fated Relationships: The Vertex In The Composite

The Bounty“What fates impose, that men must needs abide; It boots not to resist both wind and tide.”
–William Shakespeare

The vertex is a “fated encounter” point in any chart and linked to timing by transit and aspect. There is more than one way to spot the chart of a person with whom one has a fate link, but it is often reflected in vertex interaspects between the charts. But what of the relationship? The relationship itself has a chart; it is called the composite and is the chart of the midpoints between the planets and angles of the two individuals’ charts.

The composite chart has a vertex as well. Its vertex is the midpoint between the individuals’ vertices. There are many possible indicators of a fated relationship. Not having any particular one does not mean the relationship is not special or destined. I hesitate to use the word “soulmate” because there is no specific, agreed upon definition. However, one such indicator of a fated relationship is the composite vertex conjunct the composite descendent.

This doesn’t mean the relationship will be easy, or blissful or even long-lasting. What it means is that it will be important and ultimately growth-inducing. Of course, reflectively, that doesn’t mean it WON’T be blissful or long-lasting. There are so many factors to consider, but I find these individual indicators interesting and one more to add to your arsenal of “hmm, isn’t THAT something!”

Before I accept that something “works” I really need to have a grasp on WHY it works. In this case, what enters the relationship through that destiny “stargate” is at the point of the 7th house cusp, Venus-ruled, what one likes. It is an aspect of embracing the destiny of the relationship, whatever that may be.

In addition, transits in conjunction or opposition to the composite vertex show the timing of fated events or people entering your joint life that affect you jointly, affect the relationship itself. Individuals whose planets closely hit that vertex axis can have a profound effect on the relationship. On the descendent they are in agreement with the relationship desires. Or at least when a malefic presence enters there is more likelihood of accord in handling the influence.

Fated Relationships: The Vertex In The Composite — 115 Comments

  1. Oh my gosh, Satori. I’m stunned… our composite Vertex is on the composite Descendant to the exact degree. An unbelievably difficult and deep and loving relationship.

    “hmm, isn’t THAT something,” indeed! Learning a lot here.

  2. Just checked via astro.com. Vertex (if it´s that whatever abbreviated with “verte” – is it? Yes it is, I looked on the list) conjunct moon node right on the descendent. Exact degree. So what does vertex conjunct moon node mean, Satori??

    I´m kind of puzzled at that.
    The relationship I´m in is well, practically nonexisting on the outside and definitely not blissful in many ways. Four saturn squares in the synastry. I´d not find it amusing to think in terms of “fated” in that, somehow.

  3. the north node? these fated happenings draw your toward your purpose as a couple. south node would likely be the fatedness of working out past karma (if such things are in your belief system. ::wink::).

    • Hi Satori
      In me and my special-one’s composite chart, our north node conjunct antivertex and eros in 2. House capricorn.
      What what does that mean for us as a couple?

      At the moment, transit pluto conjunct this constalation in capricorn in our composite 2. House.
      Transiting uranus is making a square to also
      What can we expect to deal with?

      (We have a lot moon/saturn aspects both in synastry and in composite).

      Best regards

  4. Hmmm! ISN’T THAT SOMETHING! We have Vertex in Virgo on the 7th. How close does the aspect have to be? Is four degrees too wide? Also interesting my Vertex conj. his moon. His Vertex conj. my Sun. Would it be better the other way around in a man/woman relationship?

  5. ‘However, one such indicator of a fated relationship is the composite vertex conjunct the composite descendent’ – I had this with Taurus. Also conjunct Jupiter. I *had* to know him, and he seemed to feel the same.

  6. Composite vertex in 8 degrees cancer in the 8th house, opposing our composite saturn in cap at 7 degrees. Also our comp vertex exactly opposes his natal mars in cap. at 8 degrees. Not sure of the relevance any of this.

    • Can you help?
      Our Composite Vertex is on the cusp of 8th House , in Virgo. What does that signify?
      Also, we have an 8th House stellium involving, Uranus, Mars, Pluto and Jupiter.
      Can someone please help out with the analysis?
      Thank you so much!
      Warm regards

  7. Our composite vertex opposes our composite AC, squares our composite MC, and Sesquisquare our composite Uranus.

    Transiting Uranus is conjunct it, and Transiting Neptune is in a semi-sextile.

    we had to know each other.

    Our natal planets:
    Saturn opposes my Vertex
    Neptune squares it
    Pluto inconjuncts it
    Uranus trines it
    MC trines it

    Pluto opposes her Vertex
    Sun squares it
    Mercury squares it
    Saturn trines it
    Neptune trines it
    Moon sextiles it
    MC sextiles it

  8. thank you Satori for posting this!! 🙂 the composite vertex is Aries 7th house trine composite Neptune and opposing Pluto. very interesting l don’t know what to make of it just yet…Jupiter Aries was conjunct composite Jupiter at some point..and passed over the vertex (23degrees Aries) very nice indeed!

  9. my best friend has Jupiter&Saturn Aries and she has a magical influence on the relationship her Saturn being at 27 degrees it’s conjunct our composite Vertex l’d say. l can see why she has this stabilizing powerfull energy on us. Like this magician sending good vibes :)!

  10. Ox and I have composite vertex in 7th but it is several degrees from the descendant. But, I do have something that illustrates what you are talking about. I’ve been working on a friend with something and she is interacting with a person and their composite has vertex exactly conjunct the descendant. Like nada degrees. This isn’t a romantic relationship by any means. But it definitely has had a deep impact upon this girls life but also in her line of thinking. I have not a doubt in my mind that these two were fated to meet. But it has nothing to do with establishing a life long romantic partnership. What’s ironic is I just went looking for info about this yesterday because I noticed the conjunction. I reckon I should have just checked the blog..eh..duh.

    Thanks Satori, I have a better understanding of the vertex after these last two posts. 🙂

    I have

  11. I’m having a hard time in my relationship but not knowing which way to go seems inevitable with our Vertex just 2 degrees under the DC in Libra 6th house.


    Sextile Jupiter & Uranus I don’t think its all that bad but opposite our Aries Acs & Moon it seems our insecurities are continually tried and tested.. am I on the right track??

  12. and I have another example. The composite chart of my ex boyfriend (fondly referred to as “the stalker”)and I. Vertex conjunct Descendant at 2 degrees. Trust me, we are not life partner compatible. But a fateful meeting..oh yeah. Big possibility.

    Ex hubby numero two and I and my grandson and I also have the conjunction..but 10 degrees out. I wouldn’t count that as within orb, but both connections were fated. I love the grandson..the ex..ha, not so much.

  13. my last relationship was very important in many ways, it didn’t work out, but I learned a lot in there…and we had Vertex conjunct Descendant in our composite chart.

  14. Our composite Vertex is conjunct my Natal IC and also his Natal Saturn,both by 2 degs.The relationship does seem very fated.It feels we have always known each other.The composite Vertex is also cunjunct composite Pluto with an orb of 5 degs.The composite Descendant is 7 degs from the Composite Vertex.Can it be considered conjunct?

  15. Uncanny. Comp. Vertex is precisely conjunct (w/in 30 minutes). We met when Saturn transited the Vertex.

    Comp. Sun/Venus/Merc and Jupiter also in 7th house. Lilith is conj. the Asc.

    The attraction is magnetic, irresistable and palpable.

  16. Thanx Satori! It´s the north node, by the way. Funny though, as I´ve experienced quite some encounters to have been fated (my personal venus conjunct north node in 8), i always considered this relationship to be the least fated in that row by far. There´s just none of the “usual phenomena” involved.

    And yes, it´s in my belief system 😉 – if one would call that “belief”. To me it´s rather a matter of experience ;-).

  17. My composite vertex do not conj descendant but it trines saturn & neptune. Plus ♄,♅ & ♆ are in the 12th, with Cap rising. Any clue?

  18. vertex in the 7th house composite…..(taurus)
    trine Neptune…
    square Uranus….

    Could this mean magical, mystical, dreamy (neptune) and full of excitement?

  19. Composite Vertex conjunct North Node in the 7th house in Taurus
    (it’s a 1 degree conjunction)

    Also, it opposes Saturn in Scorpio in the 1st house.
    And it sextiles the moon in Pisces in the 4th house.
    Any thoughts & guesses about this? 🙂

  20. My last relationship had a Vertex conjunct DC and it was fated… I can say that now, a great learning experience and it was very hard as well. Transforming. We had a Saturn Pluto conjunction in composite…so it was pretty harsh.

    My astro friend told me that the Pluto conjunction Mars is kind of a glue aspect in synastry/composite. That it makes it hard to walk away. Any thoughts on that?

    • Hello Mist, would you elaborate on your story about what happen in that relationship? I’d really love to hear every detail. I’ve just met this girl whom I have zero degree Vertex conj. Dc with on synastry, she’s the Vertex I’m the DC. The chemistry is off the charts intense..

  21. My husband’s Venus in Aries is exactly conjunct my vertex in Aries in my 7th house. His vertex in Libra is within one degree of my ascendant. Our composite vertex is conjunct our composite Ascendant. We met as teens and reconnected 28 years later. Very fated and intense. My Mars/Pluto conjunction at 9 degrees Virgo is within two degrees of his pluto/north node in Virgo–despite its difficulties (family burdens, not personal issues) it feels impossible to walk away from each other. @Mist: I had a Saturn/Pluto conjunction with my first husband–that was dreadful and also life-transforming as the divorce left me with two kids to raise on my own.

  22. @Anna in Canada – i have read about it being an extremely difficult aspect to handle in synastry/ composite. Like a burden and a test of will. Yours was literary life transforming then… We also had a 0 degree Mars – Pluto conjunction, and a Saturn square Mars in synastry.
    It was just mind blowing and very intense and hard to just be and breathe. Kind of a burden relationship for both of us, but hard to just leave it and walk away free. Weird. And then after a few years of trying to get out, we both fell in love with other people in the same week! 🙂

    I now checked all my important relationships, turns out – all my close friends, my boyfriend, even my mother, we all have a composite Vertex conjunct DC… by a very tight conjunction… or a Vertex in the 7th in composite. 😀 All of those people kind of transformed me… so I can agree with Satori, a very “fated encounter” signature aspect ;)Tnx for this info!

  23. In our composite, me and *Cindy* have Vertex exactly conjunct the Descendant and SATURN. Too bad we don’t actually “have a relationship” which makes the whole “relationship chart” – pointless. :/

  24. I just looked at this again and we have composite Vertex conjunct composite Dsc. With Jupiter and Ceres also conjunct. Interesting!

    His sun = my Vertex
    His vertex = my mars/Chiron

    I love returning to these posts.

    • Hi Kr… would you please elaborate on what happens in your particular relationship? How did it feel? How did it play out??

  25. In our composite- vertex opposition pluto @ 0.00 orb. His natal vertex is in my sun sign virgo in 7 house. Does it mean anything? In synastry we have my vertex sextile his sun, his vertex square my neptune any ideas?

  26. one thing to note with his vertex in your 7th house is that anything that enters his life by transit as a fated event via that vertex affects you as well. it keeps you tuned in to him in a relationship context and that can really build the partnership!

  27. Thanks Satori. My mistake 7 house it’s him. His vertex in virgo is in 7 house. Mine is in taurus in 8. But I was just wondering if there is any relation between my sun sign virgo and his vertex sign.
    Since he is the sun in synastryband I’m the vertex does it have any meaning. I also found out we have vertex opposition pluto in composite. But we’re not together…it feels profound to me though

  28. Also in composite- vertex conjunction both chiron and jupiter and oppose uranus but trine neptune. In synastry his vertex sextile my neptune. I’m so confused with it all

  29. Sorry. I don’t know what’s wrong with me today. In synastry also his sun sextile my vertex. Hope that’s all 🙂

  30. I don’t look at anything but conjunctions to the vertex axis. that makes pluto conjunct the antivertex! if you think of the vertex/antivertex as openings into the chart, where energy “comes in”, you can see why I only look at conjunctions. the anti-vertex shows where fated energy enters through your own action! the vertex happens from a source beyond you.

  31. I just looked up davisons chart and it came up with no vertex aspects (except for a square with venus but it does’t count). Composite vertex is placed in 8 house. Any ideas?
    In my natal my south node is in conjunction with antivertex
    Thank you

  32. hmmm very interesting =D
    got our composite vertex conjunct descendant exact degree in Leo, also his natal jupiter (leo 9th house) is exact conjunct composite vertex. looked at the davidsson chart as well and there his moon (leo 9th house) is conjunct vertex all within 1 degree

  33. Just found this! I decided to look up our composite (considering a life-long partnership w/ someone who just won’t give up on me) and, whoa, we have comp Vertex 1 degree conj the Descendant!

    Further, he has always seemed in love w/ me from day one, whereas I don’t feel deeply until a long time, and on top of our composite Vertex conj desc, my natal Venus, also exact my desc conjuncts this composite Vertex. Holy guacamole, that may explain why he is so connected to me. Really in awe here. I have always felt there was some destiny or reincarnation with us, yet I keep fighting it and he’s all matter-of-fact w/ us like there’s no possible person for him til the end. There is seriously something magical going on w/ the ‘math’ of the celestial heavens.

  34. Satori, slowly learning this. =)))

    Still in a bit of awe here at my desk over the looking up our composite on a whim, then googling the aspect, and then the answer circling right back here! I hope you guys never leave this blog. Have a wonderful weekend, all.

  35. I just found out that 2 of the loves of my life (I’ve only had 3 but I don’t have the time of birth of the 1st one!) have the same Vertex!!! These two women with the same Vertex were born in different countries, have different birth dates, sun signs, were born 5 years apart and still…. have the same Vertex angle even on the same house !!! And happened to have met me and happened to have changed me in so many ways! And they have never met each other… maybe they will though.
    So what their Vertex does to me is….
    it trines my Sun and Venus
    it sextiles my Uranus
    it squares my Jupiter
    it semi-sextiles my Saturn

    But I think what really does the trick is the fact that our composite Vertex is conjunct my natal Chiron and North Node.


    P.S. The Ascendant of both of them falls in my 7th House… the only difference is that one falls of them has it in Aires (my descendant) and the other one has it in Taurus. I think that this made me want the Aries Asc as a “love at 1st sight” and the one with the Asc in Taurus it had to grow on me.

  36. Hello Satori,
    Good post. Me and my new ‘romantic interest’ have composite vertex conjunct composite descendant BY SOLSTICE within 1 degree. Does that count?

    Also, composite Saturn in the 11th house trines Descendant which in turn trines our venus/mars/uranus conjunction in the 3rd house, creating a composite grand trine (or three grand trines?) – Orb within 2 degrees.

    Also, Composite sun trines composite moon (5 degrees) and they are conjunct my natal sun/moon mp (3 degrees) and his natal sun/moon mp (3 degrees)respectively.

    Also, Eros and Psyche are conjunct both ways natally (double whammy) therefore conjunct in the composite (4 degrees) as well.

    What do you think? Is this relationship fated? So far, the guy seems detached/withdrawn…though he was the first to show a lot of interest when we met. What could this mean?

  37. Just checked the composite Vertex of my current relationship. Composite Vertex is Conjunct Composite Sun by less than one degree in the 7th house ~ happy happy happy 🙂

  38. Just learning about the vertex. I was born when Jupiter transited my mother’s vertex exactly.

    When Saturn transited my vertex, I started my own business and also met my soulmate (a very difficult but intensely erotic as well as spiritual relationship that was on and off for 8 years).

    Is there an easy way to calculate the vertex without using astro.com?

    Thanks Satori & everyonefor all the great posts.

  39. Composite
    All in Virgo
    H6: Psyche 0*, Venus 5*, her S/M 5*, Descendant 8*
    H7: Sun 13*, Mercury 20*, Vertex 20*, Cupid 24*, Jupiter 24*
    H6 Pluto at Leo 29*42 cj Psyche 0*

    Vertex/Desc are sign-cj 11*. In Synastry Virgo Vertexes are cj 2* in H7 (both). Have not found anything online about that aspect. Comments?

    Comments appreciated. Thanks!

  40. I just checked a relationship that felt *fated* at the time of meeting and in composite the Vertex is 2 degrees off the descendent.
    Somehow this info has made me feel better. We each had something to learn and then move on. It felt like *coming home* when we first met; when it was over, the loss was painful.
    Learn and move forward.

  41. I just checked the composite chart of my boyfriend and me, and our composite Vertex is EXACTLY conjunct the descendant! I have always felt a strong soulmate feeling about him. I was convinced he was my future husband before we even started dating. (We were both dating other people, but started noticing each other) We have strong synastry and composite aspects. It isn’t easy though! Some of the aspects are tightly opposite or square. Anyway, I was blown away after reading your article because I didn’t expect to have this aspect at all, none the less be exact! Can you explain why this aspect indicates a fateful relationship? I know the Vertex represents fateful encounters, but why would it be fateful for us being placed on the descendant?

  42. *bump*

    ….checked out ALL close and important relationships in my life- including family members. guess what? in ALL of them we have vertex in 7th house composite. and all the really good relationships- the vertex is conjunct my natal jupiter-sun
    how about that 🙂
    thanks so much satori- you are the best teacher

  43. in synastry my vertex conjunct his dc and my vertec conjunct his sun/moon midpoint .
    I love him so dearly and I think from the moment he saw me he liked me as well.
    On top of it sun and venus conjunct his venus on his ascendant and his moon is on my asc.
    The first time I saw him I thought he would be THE ONE! WOW! (I can not speak for him)
    His sun is exact opposite my moon! Oh, it is the perfect love story, isn’t it?
    UNFORTUNATELY it has a Romeo/Julia twist. We met 20 years later than we were supposed to. Ironic and maddening! WE are Both married!(to someone else of course) And we have a lot of planets (even so they are the beneficial ones) in the 12 house.
    Talking about self sacrifice and letting go!
    So basically living hell. But I still love him so deeply for over a year now!
    What am I supposed to do? Any advice?

  45. I’m in a new relationship that has a composite Vertex conjunct composite North Node (1.5 d orb) in the 8th house. Also composite Venus is exactly opposite here. Additionally, Composite Sun is in the 1st conjunct the ASC. Any thoughts on this? Is this “good”?

  46. Weird! My last relationship had composite Vertex conjunct the DC within 3/4°… VERY growth-inducing. Being with him taught me a lot of self-esteem and self-assertiveness. He was extremely supportive of me and the process of finding my confidence and voice. Very interesting…

    I actually found this article by googling “composite sun conjunct composite vertex” (as I found in the chart of my current relationship), but apparently that’s the one thing in the whole universe that hasn’t made it’s way onto the Internet :-p what would you make of that conjunction, Satori? (It’s actually the composite vertex conjunct the composite sun AND the composite moon, because the composite sun and moon are conjunct each other… Can’t find much about that either!!! :-p )

  47. Hi! I realize this blog entry is 2 years old, but I just found an interesting discovery in my family charts. I found that the following charts had the vertex conjunct the descendant in the composites between me and my father, my son and his father, my daughter and her father (same man), me and my son, me and my daughter, and a man of interest with my son and also my daughter (he and I have several soul mate indicators showing many lifetimes together, apparently). My mind is blown! 🙂

  48. Lovely article!

    Have you ever encountered the composite Nodes conjuncting the composite IC/MC points?

    I have this with my partner:

    composite North Node conjunct composite IC
    and (obviously) comp SN conjunct comp MC

    Do you have any thoughts on that?

  49. WOW. Mind blown. 2 husbands and a very significant relationship Vertex conj the DC. All of them fell into place within hours.

    There really IS something to this astrology business, isn’t there? 🙂

  50. I have Vertex in H7 conj DC conj Venus, but the relationship lasted only 2 months :/
    I notes that in my past two relationship the Vertex is in the H7 but is not conj DC and the relationships lasted longer. It is like the more is far the more is longer :P.
    Well what about that? 🙂

  51. Wild! My husband and I met each other while we were traveling in Peru. The moment I saw him, I looked over to a friend of mine and half whispered, “He’s perfect.” Our meeting was so powerful, I have never felt anything like it before. He actually said to a friend of his that he would marry me some day. Our relationship has been deeply transformative. We are from different countries and we are 13 years apart. Our daughter was definitely the key that held us together as we learned to live with one another. I have a lot of natal planets in the 4th house (Scorpio Saturn, moon and Pluto) and our composite chart is heavily aspected in the 4th house (Leo Venus, and Virgo Saturn and Mercury). We have healed and grown together as a family. …but, anyways, our composite vertex is conjunct our composite DC. Awesome.

  52. how interesting Satori..how would you summarize difference between Ve.ac/dc and Ve./venus?talking about Ve.conj venus in composite,plus very active in synastry

  53. Hi there,

    Can you tell me what, if anything, it means for his chiron (7th house) to square my vertex (also in the 7th house) ? Orb 3 degrees 58s

    Thank you

  54. Hello Satori, would you consider the orb of 2°31s ,between composite vertex and composite Dsc ? or is it too wide? Also does composite vertex square composite nodes with 2°18s have any sort of significance? Thank you in advance

  55. Hello Sartori,

    I’m going through a rough breakup in which I kicked myself out of the relation because it was weighing down on me hard EMOTIONALLY.

    His vertex is in my 7th house (Moon in Cancer lies there)
    Mine is conjunct his Moon in Leo by 1 degree!!

    What does this mean??

  56. What about composite Vertex opposite composite Ascendant and square composite Midheaven? Does this then mean that the relationship is still fated? Does the Anti-Vertex come into play here at all? Would appreciate the feedback, thank you!

  57. Isn’t this just a question of worldview? For some, every relationship is “fated” as is everything that happens to them. For others, their free-will means nothing but their birth and death is guaranteed. What is the need in this point named Vertex with that in mind?

  58. Massive fated moment right here when I stumbled on your page and saw your photo of tall ship Bounty. I kid you not, four of the most significant relationships in my life have been related to that ship. WHAT a spin out!

  59. All my significant relationships had this Vertex conjunct DC feature in composites. With the unavailable soul mate karma nightmare one, his abusive wife’s composite with me also has that conjunction, nearly exact!
    Just tried composites for a friend with her late husband — yes, it was there — and with the man she now has feelings for, whose Sun is conjunct her MC — his birthday was the day her husband died. Their composite Vertex is conjunct Saturn on the 8th house cusp. Anyone know what that could indicate for their future?

  60. Hello.
    I just saw in somebody’s chart an interesting combo. The natal vertex in tight conjunction within 12 minutes with progressed composite vertex. Does it mean that at this point the relationship is kind of highly significant in this person’s life?

  61. Can’t believe the date you posted this was when I got it together with the person I have composite Vertex conjunct descendant with so only seen that now, I knew it was fated….not been together but we remain deeply involved…the eclipse this week falls on that point. More fate.

    At the same time transiting Lilith/NN/Juno hits the composite Pluto in 7th and transiting Jupiter hits the composite Mercury/Juno

    An eclipse and Pluto. I expect a complete death of it or rebirth.

    The eclipse is also on his Venus and my MC/Pluto/Uranus so individually we have strong links to that composite Descendant/Vertex point too. And the composite Jupiter is on my Descendant. BIG person in my life.

  62. Composite vertex sitting on top of our DC, at 0 degrees libra. We haven’t got together yet, he’s not my type physically but there’s this strong intuition that something will happen and it won’t be superficial.

  63. hi , just had a look at my own composite chart w lover,vertex in a close orb w dc , not exact conjunct but pretty close.
    W sun opp venus, moon opp mars and true node,a bunch of oter stuff.. hmmmmm.

  64. I checked the composite with the man I have met about 5 weeks ago, in a University-related event(he is a foreign exchange student) I am 26 and he is 23, but I from our first conversation I felt a kindred spirit thing, however there are some harsh aspects in our chart that scare me.
    He is though. I have no fire in my chart, he is a sadge rising and Moon, Cancer sun and venus, leo mercury, taurus mars. I am virgo rising, pisces sun, venus, mercury, north node, Gemini(or last degree taurus) Moon, and Mars-Jupiter in 0 Gemini.
    My saturn is opposite his sun(6 deg orb) trine his Mars.
    His Moon in 2 deg sag is opposite my Moon-Mars-Jupiter, his ascendant is exactly conjunct my IC, my Eros is exactly conjunct his DC.
    Plus mutual Venus trine Sun aspects and mutual Mars-Venus sextile aspects.

    In our composite we have Sun-Mercury-Venus-Mars all conjunct in Taurus, in the 7th house, and Vertex is conjunct sun-venus-descendant.
    But Moon is square composite Mars, trine ascendant(all the major aspects it makes) and that stellium is also sextile Jupiter, trine Saturn and opposite Pluto. The heavy Pluto energy scares me…

  65. I’ve just had my heart broken by a guy that I have this in composite with..we started out hanging out as friends 2 months ago and I fell for him, even though it was not love at first sight.
    We have significant aspects in composite and synastry, but I guess not enough for him to love me, he said he always thought of me as a friend and would continue to have me as a friend(he’s a foreign exchange student, so he only spends 3 months in my country; and asked me to spend the winter holidays at his place, plus asked me to come visit), in our composite we have pluto in the 1st house(scorpio rising), sun-venus-mercury-mars all conjunct, in the 7th house,some of those also conjunct the vertex, and the vertex is conjunct the dc, moon in the 5th house, square mars, trine ascendant, semi-sextile saturn. The Sun-Mars-Venus-Mercury is also trine Neptune, sextile Jupiter, opposite Pluto, and trine Saturn, and sextile Chiron.
    Jupiter is opposite saturn and trine Pluto
    However saturn is square the ascendant-a 3 degree orb, and saturn is conjunct composite north node(3 degree orb) so maybe those are deal-breakers.
    also, composite sun-mercury-venus-mars are conjunct his mars, the composite jupiter-chiron conjunction is conjunct his natal sun.
    composite moon is conjunct my mercury, vertex and north node, composite mars is loosely(5-6degrees) conjunct my natal moon.
    in synastry, my moon-mars-jupiter conjunction falls in his 7th house, his sun trines my sun and venus, my venus and sun trines his venus.
    His ascendant is conjunct my IC, his jupiter is conjunct my ascendant(7degree orb), opposite my venus and sun.
    his mars sextiles my sun and venus,trines my ascendant, my mars sextiles his venus
    his moon is opposite my moon-mars-jupiter conjunction.
    My sun and venus are square his ascendant, also our ascendants are in square.
    his psyche conjunct my ascendant, square my eros.
    My eros almost exactly conjunct his descendant.
    also, my chiron conjunct his south node, his moon square my north node.
    my saturn is opposite his sun.

    • I can’t go through all the aspects but much of the composite sounds similar to a situation person I knew…again not love at first sight but I fell hard …we were involved for a short time though …and that Saturn/NN conjunction will be hard to break Saturn is like glue so needed but can create connections we need to let go too. If it’s already breaking your heart you’re very lucky he’s not in the country more! My advice from (long, hard, brutal) experience is try and let go before it consumes you as if he wanted more he’d made it clear. And why should you expect any lesser yourself? Friends never work when one person is in love.

  66. The composite sun is conjunct the vertex, which are both conjunct the descendent….i have to imagine that being together is the main point of the relationship, or being brought together, i should say

  67. Freaks me OUT!
    Conjunction with:
    My Husband, best friend, daughter in law (I will have to look at this differently now) My Scorpio moon Granddaughter, my Children’s father(ex-husband, My Mother, and my sisters. All with the conjunction to the dsc.

    I almost fell over when I saw it. That many people!

  68. Its really creepy, this vertex/composite descendant thing . I have this with my husband, exact. While our relationship has been very rocky at times, and there were plenty of times I wished I werent in it, it has been the most growth-inducing relationship of my life. I think we were meant to be.

    • It is creepy!!! I cant believe it. The people I have had the most profound relationships with are right there ….I couldn’t believe my eyes. WOW

  69. My composite Vertex is in our composite 7H and it is also conjunct MY natal DC. Our composite 11H Scorpio Venus exactly trines our 7H Cancer Mars/Uranus conjunction. Lots of passion.

  70. I had this with my first husband of seven years. Through our relationship, I was deeply transformed and then came the time to part. We continue to be friends. Our friendship is inspired and supported by our common goal of raising her together, in a nontraditional family. We’re doing great as friends and co-parents. The first man I’ve had any kind of butterflies and desire since my divorce (it took a year)… we have the Vertex conjunct the descendant in our composite chart! And a YOD to boot with Venus as the apex. and the Moon and Mars as the base. I need to read more into yods. However, I’m feeling a lot of Venus/Neptune energy and there have been various red flags. The attraction, feeling and pull, though, is undeniable. Oh Lordy. My game plan? I barely know him and there are complications that could go against my own moral code. So, my game plan? I’m going to step into patience and continue to find joy and happiness in my life. If it’s meant to be, things will align.

  71. If I understood correctly, then it is very useful to know the vertexes and DCs of other people. But for that you need to know exact birth times. So it’s very difficult to make use of this lesson. I just cast a line:
    My Vertex: 26 degrees Virgo
    My DC: 19 degrees Virgo

  72. Vertex is pretty crazy. In our composite chart, we have vertex conjunct descendant, juno, and south node all within 2 degrees. Vertex is on the DC exact to the degree. I’m surprised we didn’t elope as it was a married at first sight type of situation, lol

  73. My ex-boyfriend and I have composite vertex in Aries (24 degree 33) conjunct composite DC (24 degree 35) to the exact degree too. My moon is 22 Aries too. We have so many aspects –
    My south node is conjunct his Venus and his Venus is conjunct my south node. His vertex conjunct my natal AC and my North Node conjunct his DC and lots of our aspects that point to a fated relationship, past life, not meant to be together in this life stuff. We broke up 2 years ago but still keep in daily contact, multiple times a day, every day since our break up. We can’t seem to let go, but he keeps pulling away from me. I am still trying to figure this out – I know I need to let go, but don’t want to. Very very mind blowing finding this. Love reading all your stories, maybe I can make some sense out of this situation with him. Blessings and Love to All

  74. Wow. This is crazy.
    I finally (at the age of 48) have come together with what I would call my soulmate. We indeed have Vertex conjunct descendant!
    Also, poignantly, this is the degree of my natal Chiron. And Sun is conjunct Chiron in the composite.
    Thanks for this article!

  75. Hahaha -Awesome Post!!! :-)))

    I’ve studied the Vertex point in Astrology for some time now…

    My Twin Flame and I composite chart has the Vertex conjunct the Descendant in Aries in opposition to Lilith and Pluto in Libra conjunct the Acendant in Libra…. lol

    I can vouch to you it’s powerful stuff playing out between us in the transformation!

    Cheers – Shane

  76. I have my vertex in Virgo and my love interest has his vertex in Pisces and Pisces is my rising sign and Virgo is his rising sign.

    Does that mean our composite Vertex is on the composite Descendant or where can you calculate this?

    I also like to know where you can see when you have a transit on the Vertex?

  77. Omg I could pass out. So accurate. Composite Vertex conj composite desc, 7th house Libra. I wish I could give the whole backstory, but all I can really say is wow.

  78. Composite vertex @24 Gem in the 7th. Trines the comp Neptune in Libra.. opposite comp Mercury.. His Jup 19 Gem, my Moon 5 Gem…. That vertex is just inside my 5th house, and in his 9th. The relationship spent 25 yrs as an affair. Then broke off for 14. Got back together last mid-Dec we are both free. The Covid19 intensified it very quickly, and now transit Venus has a stay in Gem in the comp 7th, while Mars will be traveling thru his natal 7th for months soon, and the comp 5th!

  79. Composit Vertex in the 7th house conjucting north node sextile MC and opposes sun,moon,mercury,pluto,south node and lilith.I have been havibg having problems with ladies all my life
