     This Lovers Report is divided into 4 chapters.


     Chapter 1 compares your temperaments and personalities. The issues described in Chapter 1 become particularly powerful if you are married or live together. Idiosyncrasies or quirks in another person's personality do not bother us as much if our relationship is a casual one. For example, if one person is neat and tidy and the other is sloppy, this is more likely to become a concern if you are married than if you are only seeing each other occasionally.


     Pay close attention to the issues described in Chapter 2 because these are the most important themes in your relationship. For example, if themes of romance and sexual attraction are emphasized, then you can count on this relationship being a passionate one. However, if romance and sexuality are hardly mentioned at all, then this relationship will not be a passionate one. Note also that the material in Chapter 2 is presented roughly in order of importance, so that the material presented at the beginning of Chapter 2 is the most powerful.


     Chapter 4 describes issues in your relationship of less importance than those presented in Chapter 2. Chapter 3 describes situations and circumstances that arise if you have a close, long-lasting relationship.


     If a statement appears to contradict another statement, then your roles are likely to alternate. For example, a statement that Melanie is more aggressive than Antonio, and another statement that Antonio is more aggressive than Melanie, means that you alternate roles, with Melanie sometimes being the leader and Antonio being the follower, and sometimes just the opposite. Also, read the statements carefully, as it is likely that a careful reading will reveal different kinds of aggressiveness or areas in which the aggressiveness is likely to express itself.


     To make the most of this report, combine this astrological analysis with other things that you know about each other. For example, we have assumed that you are opposite-sexed (assuming that both of you are heterosexual, otherwise same-sexed). Physical attractiveness, age, religion, education, family and cultural background will affect your relationship as well. The material in Chapters 2, 3, and 4 of this report describes the magnetism between you, but does not describe your individual natures. For example, suppose that Chapter 2 makes little mention of romance and sexuality, but the Natal Reports for each of you indicate that each of you has extremely strong romantic and sexual desires. In this case, marriage is not likely to be successful! However, if romance and sexuality are not important to either of you, then the lack of passion in your relationship is not likely to be as much of a stumbling block.

Chapter 1

A Comparison of Temperaments and Life Styles

that Affect Your Ability to Harmonize with Each Other



Melanie's Sun in Leo and Antonio's Sun in Leo:


     You are both proud, vibrant, warm, but rather self-centered individuals. You both want to be the center of attention, and you may not want to share the starring role with your partner. Neither of you can dominate in this relationship - you must cooperate, which isn't something that comes naturally to either of you.


     Although it may not be obvious to others, both of you are very self-conscious individuals, and you are very concerned with your own personal creativity, personal recognition, and personal performance. Both of you are best suited to work that is very personal and creative - being one inconspicuous part of a large corporation is not for you.


     Your relationship is likely to be either extraordinarily happy and fulfilling or else disastrous - with no middle ground. You tend to either adore each other or despise each other. You are both very loyal, but you must respect and believe in your partner. If you ever feel that your partner lacks integrity or honesty, or is competing with you, or does not appreciate or understand your creative work and motivations, then the love and admiration that you have for each other turns sour quickly.


Melanie's Moon in Aquarius and Antonio's Moon in Aries:


     Antonio's emotions tend to be hot and fiery, while Melanie is cooler, more detached, impersonal and fair. When something provokes Antonio's impatience or anger, Melanie can be infuriatingly logical and reasonable. Both of you are active and independent and insist upon having the freedom to pursue your personal interests and desires outside of your relationship. You allow one another to be separate individuals, as well as being part of the couple. Antonio is sometimes domineering, but Melanie demands equality and will not accept being dominated. Both of you resist authority.


     Also, both of you have a craving for newness and a willingness to let go of the old and the past in order to embrace a new opportunity or to follow your direction regardless of tradition or convention.


     Though similar in temperament, you may not always get along because neither of you compromise very readily.


Both of you have Mars conjunct or in hard aspect to Pluto:


     Both of you are intensely self-willed and can be compulsively driven, controlling and domineering, whether you realize and admit it or not. You both tend to overpower people, or engage in relationships where fierce struggles over power, competition, and personal ambition are the primary themes. Relationships with men in particular are apt to be loaded with these dynamics.


     The obvious challenge for the two of you together would be how to not make your relationship an arena for this type of battle. This could easily spill over into the bedroom as well, and take place on a subtle level.


Mars & Neptune hard or conj for Antonio, soft for Melanie:


     You share a tendency to be discontent with yourselves and your efforts, particularly if there is no imaginative, spiritual, creative, or humanitarian element to your activities. Antonio, in particular, is prone to feelings of aimlessness and discouragement unless surrounded with others who also have creative aspirations or higher ideals. Melanie, however, is apt to be supportive and encouraging, and at your finest, the two of you can share your dreams with one another.





Chapter 2

Major Themes in the Relationship: What Brought You Together



Melanie's Sun Conjunct Antonio's Sun:


     You strongly identify with each other and are very much alike in important ways. It is easy for you to be together because you do not have to explain yourselves to one another. An innate appreciation and understanding of one another's essence exists between you, and this is vitalizing and ego-affirming for both of you. However, you share the same flaws and weaknesses as well as the positive qualities, and you may find it difficult to be with someone who so clearly exhibits the very things you like least about yourself. The more you accept yourself, the more beneficial and delightful your relationship with one another is.


Antonio's Venus Conjunct Melanie's Mars:


     The romantic and sexual attraction between you is almost irresistible. This relationship is one that was probably "more than just friends" from the start. The intensity of your feelings for one another is unlikely to fade over time, and you find much fulfillment in your love for each other.


Antonio's Venus Conjunct Melanie's Pluto:


     Romantic and sexual attraction is very powerful, but is likely to have an intense, obsessive quality as well. Antonio, in particular, may feel that Melanie comes on too strong or is too insatiable and demanding. Jealousy, sexual manipulation, or unrestrained emotional fervor are strong potentials between the two of you. An almost fated, love-hate kind of relationship is very possible.


Antonio's Mars Opposition Melanie's Saturn:


     Melanie frequently takes a cautious or cool attitude towards Antonio's personal goals or desires, and Antonio is likely to feel constrained and limited by Melanie's cautiousness. Many times the two of you simply cannot agree on how to achieve long-range goals. However, these problems are balanced by your ability to jointly focus on tasks of an immediate practical nature and to persevere until you successfully complete them. Try not to take your joint responsibilities too seriously or to be too pessimistic and skeptical about how the two of you can meet your goals.


     On another level entirely, Antonio 's physical drives and passions may be restrained, denied full expression or frustrated by Melanie. Anger can easily build up to toxic level if grievances are not aired frequently.


Melanie's Asc. Square Antonio's Sun:


     Although the two of you are strongly attracted to each other, you often "rub each other the wrong way". Your personal tastes and interests are frequently different. If you try to convince each other that your life style, tastes, and interests are better than your partner's, then you will frustrate each other and fail to appreciate and really understand each other. You must accept the fact that the two of you are different people with your own unique qualities. Don't try to force each other to adopt your own tastes, hobbies, and interests, as it will only make matters worse.


Melanie's Asc. Square Antonio's Uranus:


     To Melanie, Antonio seems highly unusual and fascinating, or unstable and disruptive, perhaps both.


     Antonio makes Melanie feel nervous and unsettled, but this may also be quite stimulating. Both of you challenge one another to change your plans, habits, or attitudes, and a great deal of flexibility, willingness to change, and openness is necessary on both of your parts.


Antonio's Asc. Square Melanie's Saturn:


     Melanie often checks or throws a damper on Antonio's spontaneous impulses and self-expression, which is frustrating to Antonio, and can be a source of resentment if it continues for too long. Melanie makes Antonio question and doubt Antonio's actions, which can be a good thing in small doses, especially if Antonio tends to be rash or foolhardy. However, Melanie must avoid becoming a "heavy" in Antonio's life, always the nay sayer or disciplinarian.


Antonio's Moon Trine Melanie's Saturn:


     There is a mature, stable, responsible tone to your relationship that makes you feel secure with each other. There is a great deal of trust and respect for each other. As you spend more time together, you will find that your tastes, priorities, and sense of what is really important in life becomes very compatible. If you marry and have children, you will work together well as parents, especially when difficulties and "minor crises" arise.


Antonio's Moon Trine Melanie's Uranus:


     There is an upbeat, enthusiastic, spontaneous quality to your relationship. You spark each other's imagination, creativity, and wit. You feel loose and uninhibited with each other, and you enjoy exploring life and sharing new experiences. Also, if you both enjoy dancing or playing music, you have found a wonderful dance and/or music partner. You spark each other's sense of rhythm, and you can work together very spontaneously, yet gracefully - an indication of sexual compatibility and satisfaction as well.


Antonio's Mercury Square Melanie's Neptune:


     You inspire each other's imagination and you may find yourselves gravitating towards discussions of fantasy, poetry, art, theater, and religion. However, the tendency to lose a clear sense of proportion and become clouded by fantasies is very strong! You may also be inclined to conceal something or deceive each other. Little white lies can quickly foster a morass of confusion. Misunderstandings between you arise easily so try to be clear and precise in all important, practical communications.


Melanie's Mercury Trine Antonio's Saturn:


     You work together well on practical problems. You help each other refine and clarify your ideas, and help "edit" each other's work. Consequently you make a very effective team in business affairs, important or exacting work, and in solving daily problems.


Antonio's Mercury Sextile Melanie's Jupiter:


     Friendly, enthusiastic conversations are frequent. You enjoy joking with each other and you inspire each other to take an optimistic view of life. Communication between you is open and candid as well. The mental rapport between you is very strong and fosters a very harmonious, fulfilling relationship.





Chapter 3

Destiny and Final Outcome of Your Relationship



Composite Moon Opposition Venus:


     Tenderness, caring, and love are the essence of your bond. The feeling that the two of you were meant for one another, and a sense of reuniting and coming together again after having been separated, is a strong undertone between you. There is a lot of sweetness and affection here, and at least one part of your purpose together is simply to share that! In many ways you are complements to one another (rather than similar or the same as each other), and you can blend your different abilities and qualities to form a rich and harmonious whole. You need one another, and allowing yourselves to be taken care of and depending on each other in certain ways are part of what this relationship is about.


Composite Moon Trine Jupiter:


     Quite simply, one of the purposes of your relationship is to BE HAPPY. Play, laughter, humor, and just feeling wonderful in each other's presence is the heart of it. You put one another in a good mood, and can cheer one another up quite easily. It will be unusual for both of you to be down for very long when you're together.


     To others you will appear to be unusually blessed. You seem "gifted" together, and you will be... uncommon good fortune and "miracles" happen to you, and as a couple you will be quite generous and willing to share the good that comes your way.


     A feeling of openness, spaciousness, tolerance, and generosity towards one another permeates your bond.


Composite Sun Conjunct Mercury:


     Yours is an intellectual relationship, among other things. Exchanging thoughts, studying together, sharing information, talking and bantering, turning one another on to new books or ideas, sparking one another's curiosity and interest in the world - all of these are important aspects of your relationship. A certain detachment and the ability to think about and talk about what is going on between you are also highlighted. Put simply, becoming more conscious or more informed and educated is a significant reason the two of you are drawn together.


Composite Sun Conjunct Uranus:


     Your relationship is permeated with a tone of unconventionality, spontaneity, and unusual rhythms. Other people may see the way you relate to one another as strange, even unnatural, because you don't conform to any of the standard patterns. Personal freedom, autonomy, and "space" will be yours in this relationship, to an unusual degree. Even if neither of you is especially progressive or "liberated" in your attitudes towards human relationships, you will be forced to open your minds and to be more non-possessive and less rigid and inhibited than you've ever been before.


     All of this will be disruptive and unsettling to you, unless you willingly embrace and learn from change, and give up preconceived attitudes and expectations of how it "should" be. A lot of your "shoulds" will be shattered, if you are clinging too stubbornly to them. Surprise and newness are the essence of this relationship.


Composite Mercury Trine Saturn:


     This is destined to be a "nuts and bolts" relationship in some ways. Sharing technical expertise or some sort of practical knowledge, teaching one another some particular skill, developing a business strategy together, or simply being very pragmatic and organized in the way you do things as a couple all contribute to the success and probable longevity of your relationship.


     At times, the communication between you becomes a bit dry, mundane, and matter-of-fact (unless there are other factors which stimulate imagination and excitement between you).


Composite Venus Sextile Jupiter:


     Many benefits and opportunities will come into your lives via your relationship with each other. As a couple, you are "lucky". That is, you seem to be in the right place at the right time to take advantage of the good things that come your way. Both emotionally and materially, you will be comfortable and successful together. A certain generosity and good will toward one another ameliorates any of the more difficult challenges you may confront. Affectionate play, happiness with friends, and a lot of laughter will bring you close and help to keep you together.


Composite Jupiter Square Uranus:


     A spirit of adventure, exploration, expansion, and freedom (especially intellectual or philosophical freedom) is the lifeblood of this relationship. Together you will be quite restless, and you will impulsively do things, go places, and experiment with "far out" new things you may have been hesitant to try before. You may challenge one another's faith or belief system, or do things that shake up your old assumptions about life. You'll enjoy vacationing together, particularly in unusual places. There will always be something very unstructured, unconventional and unique about your relationship. Trying to cling to any particular form or preconceived idea about how you two "should" be simply won't work.





Chapter 4

Other Themes in Your Relationship



Melanie's Sun in Antonio's 6th house:


     Melanie likes to perform chores and tasks for Antonio, and you may sometimes feel like your relationship is more like an employer-employee relationship than a romantic one! This quality tends to be a positive one, though, for you are able to assist each other in very practical ways.


Antonio's Sun in Melanie's 4th house:


     Antonio is able to confide in Melanie, and your relationship is a very personal, intimate one. Melanie brings out Antonio's softer side. You are drawn to live together and share a home together.


Melanie's Moon in Antonio's 12th house,

Antonio's Moon in Melanie's 12th house:


     There is an element of secrecy and deep intimacy in your relationship. You confide all of your deepest feelings to each other, and both of you find yourselves sharing things about yourselves with each other that you have not been able to share with anyone else.


Melanie's Mercury in Antonio's 7th house:


     Your conversations are lively. It seems that both of you can't resist a debate with each other. Although you frequently disagree with each, fortunately you enjoy the lively exchange of ideas nevertheless.


Antonio's Mercury in Melanie's 4th house:


     Antonio loves to discuss very personal issues with Melanie, which promotes a very close, inner tie between you.


Melanie's Venus in Antonio's 7th house:


     Melanie is highly attractive and interesting to Antonio, and there is a strong magnetic attraction between you that leads to a lovely friendship and perhaps romance.


Antonio's Venus in Melanie's 5th house:


     Dancing, moonlit nights, and other romantic activities are likely to be a very important part of this relationship. There is a fresh, joyous quality to the love you share.


Melanie's Mars in Antonio's 6th house:


     Melanie enjoys performing chores for Antonio, and also takes an interest in Antonio's work and health. Melanie enjoys assisting Antonio in practical ways and the two of you are able to buckle down together and accomplish a great deal.


Antonio's Mars in Melanie's 1st house:


     Antonio comes on strong, almost aggressively to Melanie, and this relationship is a lively, dynamic one. Antonio spurs Melanie to do more and be more. Melanie may feel inspired by Antonio, but may also feel that Antonio is too pushy.


Melanie's Jupiter in Antonio's 7th house:


     Antonio feels buoyant and outgoing in Melanie's presence, enjoys talking and doing almost anything with Melanie. Cooperation and optimism are high in this relationship and you can count on having a very upbeat and outgoing relationship most of the time.


Antonio's Jupiter in Melanie's 8th house:


     There is a strong inclination to merge resources, talents, and energies. You tend to pool your resources and Antonio, in particular, is not inclined to maintain a feeling of separateness from Melanie. This tendency to merge finances, resources, as well as feelings and living space draws you into a very personal, intimate relationship with each other, which you will have to use will power to avoid if you do not wish to be this close with each other.


Melanie's Saturn in Antonio's 9th house,

Antonio's Saturn in Melanie's 9th house:


     You question and criticize one another's philosophical assumptions, political ideology, and religious beliefs. In fact, you often relish challenging one another's views. If you have different beliefs, you will have to adapt to each other! Both of you will develop a more mature and realistic political, philosophical, and religious perspective through this relationship, although the learning process may not always be pleasant or easy. If either of you stubbornly clings to your own viewpoint and is unwilling to learn from the other, you will gradually grow apart and find that this creates a rift in your relationship.


Melanie's Uranus in Antonio's 6th house:


    Handling of daily chores and tasks can get very disorganized in your relationship, particularly if you live together or are married. Antonio, in particular, may feel that is an endless battle trying to maintain an orderly life. Your daily routines change frequently and you often switch roles. For example, it is likely that sometimes Melanie may take care of cooking and cleaning, and then Antonio assumes the responsibility, rather than one person always handling the same responsibilities. If you try to force a rigid system, you will find that it is not comfortable for either of you.


Antonio's Uranus in Melanie's 4th house:


     Antonio challenges many of Melanie's deeply ingrained attitudes and many of the habits and personal tastes that are developed from early childhood. Antonio often encourages Melanie to break free from the past, although this encouragement is often subtle and not overt. Antonio needs to be careful not to overlook the value of Melanie's heritage, and you both need to be able to preserve what is good in the past without remaining attached to habitual tendencies that are not fulfilling or healthy.


Melanie's Neptune in Antonio's 8th house:


     Melanie likes to share everything without reserve with Antonio. Melanie is much less cautious and reserved in sharing possessions, as well as emotions, with Antonio. There is also a great deal of fantasy and imagination in your sexual life. This adds a colorful touch to your lives, but problems can arise if you ever feel that your partner has been dishonest with you; fantasy can easily lead to distortions and dishonesty that can erode the good feelings that you otherwise share.


Antonio's Neptune in Melanie's 6th house:


     Melanie is often disappointed in the way that Antonio handles problems and performs various chores and tasks. Melanie is likely to feel that Antonio is careless or sloppy. You approach many tasks in a very different manner from each other. This is not likely to create any serious problems, and can even add some interesting variety to your lives.


Melanie's Pluto in Antonio's 6th house:


     If your relationship is a long-term one, circumstances will develop so that you will both feel that you need to work intensively together to meet your goals, and you will have the shared motivation and dedication to do this. Melanie, in particular, will work, without complaints, to get the job done. There is a mountain that you must climb together, and the chances are good that you will, indeed, climb it.


Antonio's Pluto in Melanie's 5th house:


     Your relationship is a spirited one. You love to do things together, and you will inevitably engage in creative work or play together - developing projects together or competing with each other. If romantic attraction is strong, you can become obsessed with each other.


Melanie's Sun Conjunct Antonio's Uranus:


     You inspire each other to try new things, experiment, and investigate alternatives. You may have met each other, for example, during a time period when both of you were breaking free from traditional values and exploring new possibilities. There is a lot of excitement and spontaneity in your relationship. The two of you may find it difficult to settle down into a stable life style - there will always be surprises and unexpected turns in your relationship. You encounter lots of new ideas, unusual people, adventure, and exciting times together. You both enjoy a good measure of freedom and independence in this relationship, but either of you may wish that there was more commitment, devotion, seriousness, warmth, and closeness.


Antonio's Asc. Opposition Melanie's Mars:


     The attraction between you is very powerful and your partnership is a very close and intense one. You enjoy working together and it is also likely that you engage in competitive sports or games with each other. A negative possibility is that one of you would attempt to dominate the other, causing anger and resentment in the other. You antagonize one another at times by emphasizing your individual differences and your own needs, rather than trying to cooperate or harmonize with one another. You are able to get issues out in the open, but direct confrontation can degenerate into attack if you are not careful. Be gentler with each other!


Antonio's Venus Sextile Melanie's Neptune:


     You enjoy sharing music, art, or poetry with each other. Taking evening walks, listening to music together, and watching movies together are likely to be some of your favorite shared activities. You can tune into subtleties of feeling and aesthetics in a manner that inspires and uplifts each other. Romantic feelings are strong in this relationship.


Melanie's Mars Conjunct Antonio's Pluto:


     You draw out of each other your deepest drives and desires. The two of you arouse a zeal and sense of mission in each other that makes it possible for you to jointly accomplish extraordinary tasks. However, your fears and anxieties are brought to the surface too, and there is no guarantee that your zealousness will produce positive, constructive results. You may become fanatical in an extreme and unbalanced manner. Also, sexual passion, jealousy, and competition can be very volatile, disruptive, obsessive, and intense in this relationship.


Melanie's Mars Square Antonio's Mars:


     You periodically find that you frustrate each other when attempting to work jointly on a project. The problem arises because your approach to work is very different. Very often you will find that you must work on a project separately because successful joint effort is impossible. Fighting, provoking, driving, or pushing one another can be problems for you. There is a great deal of irritation and stress between you at times. At least there is no lack of fire in your relationship!


Antonio's Mars Sextile Melanie's Uranus:


     You inspire confident, assertive, dynamic feelings in each other, and together you enjoy being daring, acting boldly, making definite decisions and following through on them. Your partnership is a positive, dynamic one that will help both of you reach your goals. You encourage one another to be inventive, to try new approaches and this recharges and vitalizes your sexual relationship as well as your life in general.


Melanie's Saturn Square Antonio's Pluto:


     In addition to the harmony and fulfillment you may both experience together, there is a difficult, darker side to your relationship as well. Your deepest fears or character defects are brought to the fore, and you must confront the very things you have avoided or tried to hide about yourself in the past. This can be a very painful process and you may begin to resent, try to control, or suppress your partner. You are much too serious and heavy with one another at times, and must be sure that you give equal time to play and to appreciation of the positives. Otherwise, over time, this relationship will weigh both of you down.


Melanie's Uranus Square Antonio's Neptune:


     Bursts of inspiration, creative imagination and insight, or strange psychic experiences makes your relationship lively and unusual. You may do some rather bizarre or unusual experimenting together. Avoidance of responsibility or reality can be a problem at times.
