Sample Synastry Report for Laura and George W. Bush

Part One -- Planets and Aspects
Each of us has every planet in his or her chart. Each planet symbolizes a different facet of life. In synastry, when we compare two charts, we look at the aspects (distance in degrees) between the planets of one chart and the planets of the other to determine areas of potential ease or difficulty. In general, sextiles and trines are easy aspects; squares and oppositions are challenging or dynamic aspects. Conjunctions can be either easy or difficult, depending on the planets involved.

Below, a brief (necessarily incomplete) description of the areas of life ruled by each of the planets: SUN: The life force, the ego center, who you are at your core. MOON: Feelings, home, mother, family, sensitivity, nurturing, moods. MERCURY: Communication, schooling, short trips, negotiations, the mind. VENUS: Emotions, asthetic and artistic sense, what you have to offer a lover or partner if you're a woman; what you want in a partner if you're a man. MARS: Aggression, desires, competitiveness, ego drive, conflict, what you bring to a relationship if you're a man; what you want if you're a woman. JUPITER: Expansion, generosity, travel, optimism, knowledge, beliefs. SATURN: Restrictions, discipline, fear, burdens, status, ambition, authority. URANUS: Innovativeness, quirkiness, rebelliousness. NEPTUNE: Dreams, illusions, drugs, deception, spirituality. PLUTO: Death and regeneration, elimination, tumultuous change, power.


Common Aspects

Sun trine Sun
This is one of the better indications of compatibility. You tend to be on the same wavelength in many areas of life. You probably felt immediately at ease with one another when you met, and continue to be on a harmonious wavelength. This aspect tends to make for a comfortable relationship, as a rule, regardless of any other negative influences that may also impact on your pairing. You can support each other in your individual objectives and cooperate together in joint endeavors. About the only negative thing you can say for this trine is that it almost makes things too easy between you, so that you don't feel challenged to grow as individuals.


Mercury sextile Neptune
Because Neptune spends so many years in each sign, everyone born within a few years of each other will have Neptune in more or less the same position. This sextile is therefore more significant as an indicator of the Mercury person's response to an entire generation than as a trait in a one-to-one relationship. If the aspect is within a degree of exact, it can mean that you share compatible views on idealistic and spiritual issues. There is also the potential for an intuitive link between you, especially if this is supported by other aspects between your charts.


Uranus conjunct Uranus
Everyone born within a couple of years of you will have Uranus conjunct your Uranus, so this aspect has little significance in a personal comparison. It indicates generational similarities relating to expression of individualism.


Neptune conjunct Neptune
Everyone born within a few years of each other has this aspect, making it more an indicator of generational relationships rather than personal relationships. It indicates a tendency to idealize the same institutions as others in your generation . People born into the generation when Neptune was in Libra, for instance, were likely to share the tendency to over-idealize marital relationships, or possibly use relationships as an escape, and are also likely to share similar feelings of disappointment and disillusionment when relationships offered less than perfect bliss. People born under Neptune in Capricorn may over idealize and escape into careers, traditions, etc.


Pluto conjunct Pluto
As Pluto remains in one sign anywhere from 12 to 31 years, all those born within several years of each other have this aspect between their charts.

This conjunction therefore has generational rather than personal relationship significance. It shows obsessions, compulsions and intense drives; transformative, death/rebirth and purging issues confronted in some way by an entire generation. The generation with Pluto in Leo, for instance, is the first in modern times to deal as a whole, and with great intensity, with the purging (Pluto) from within of the fetus (Leo rules children). The generation is also dealing intensely with other Pluto/Leo combinations, such as pornography -- sex (Pluto) as entertainment (Leo).


Laura Bush's Planets Aspecting George W. Bush's Planets

Sun square Mercury
There is potential here for clashing due to a basic incompatibility between the Sun person's ego and need for self-assertion and the ideas and communications of the Mercury person. The Sun person may occasionally see what the Mercury person says or writes as something of a threat or challenge. However, this is unlikely to be a really problematic aspect unless there are several other, stronger negative factors in the chart comparison. If so, this square will aggravate them.


Sun sextile Mars
You are likely to bring out the energetic side in each other and to be able to get a great deal done when together. You can cooperate in challenging situations and help each other compete. Although any pairing of these two planets can occasionally bring out a competitive streak in the people involved, with this particular aspect, it usually indicates, at most, an enjoyment of friendly competition, such as in sports or other physical activities.


Sun square Pluto
Because Pluto spends so many years in each sign, everyone born within a few years of each other will have Pluto in more or less the same position. This square is therefore more an indication of the Sun person's response to an entire generation than an indicator of one-to-one relationship traits. If the aspect is within a degree or so of exact, there can be intense struggles for authority and control between you. You may see each other as threats to your personal power or there may be jealousy, envy and scheming.


Moon opposite Mars
This comparative aspect often indicates a highly emotional but stormy relationship. You are likely to arouse intense feelings in each other, and you can expect an ample number of blow-ups and disagreements. The Mars person can often hurt the Moon person through thoughtlessness and insensitivity and the Moon person can drive the Mars person to distraction through moodiness. All that being said, this is still one of the aspects most often seen between long-term romantic and marital partners. The secret to your success as a couple may be in all that time you spend kissing and making up.


Mars trine Saturn
This is an excellent aspect for people who work together or otherwise need to get things done as a team . The Mars person can encourage the Saturn person to put more energy and enthusiasm into activities; the Saturn person can help the Mars person approach projects with greater discipline and a better sense of timing. Together, you can focus your energy and achieve the maximum possible rewards from joint endeavors.


Jupiter square Pluto
Because Pluto spends so many years in each sign, everyone born within a few years of each other will have Pluto in more or less the same position. This square is therefore more significant as an indicator of the Jupiter person's response to an entire generation than as an indication of one-to-one relationship traits. If the aspect is within a degree or so of exact, it may indicate struggles between you for control of your joint resources. There may be clashes over differing moral, ethical or philosophical perspectives.


Saturn sextile Neptune
Because Neptune spends so many years in each sign, everyone born within a few years of each other will have Neptune in more or less the same position. This sextile is therefore more significant as an indicator of the Saturn person's response to an entire generation than as a trait in a one-to-one relationship. If the aspect is within a degree of exact, the Saturn person can provide structure and support so that the Neptune person's imaginativeness can develop into concrete products, or useful applications; the Neptune person can help the Saturn person trust intuition and develop his or her spiritual side more fully.


Saturn conjunct Pluto
As Pluto spends so many years in one sign, this aspect is more significant for showing how the Saturn person relates to a whole generation than as a one-to-one relationship indicator . If the conjunction is close -- within a degree or two of exact -- it can indicate a bond between you centered on achievement. However, there is a slight potential that this will manifest in struggles between you for control and authority.


Saturn conjunct Ascendant
This tends to be a problematic combination. It can indicate an unequal relationship or a relationship where one of you (usually the Saturn person) takes a parental-type role, but in an authoritative rather than a nurturing manner. This is likely to be a sober and serious bond, but it can have great stability, with each of you feeling a strong sense of responsibility toward the other. The potential negatives: the Saturn person may inhibit the Ascendant person's spontaneity; the Ascendant person may be a continuing drain or burden of some type for the Saturn person.


Uranus conjunct North Node
With this aspect, the two of you are likely to flout social convention and go your own eccentric way together. Otherwise, this is not a particularly potent influence in the comparative chart.


Neptune sextile Pluto
This is a generational aspect, of little significance in one-to-one relationships. Members of each of your generations are likely to hold some compatible attitudes regarding issues of psychology, the occult, and the world beyond the senses in general.


George W. Bush's Planets Aspecting Laura Bush's Planets

Mercury square Jupiter
This combination can produce a lot of talk - sometimes quite grandiose - but rarely produces an equivalent amount of action (or, at least, action of any consequence). Other than the tendency toward wasting time and energy in discussions that go nowhere, this is not a particularly bothersome square.


Mercury conjunct Saturn
This conjunction has both positive and negative potentials. You can work hard on practical matters together and will help each other see to every detail and plan for every contingency. However, the Mercury person may feel constrained by the Saturn person's seriousness and tendency to make demands. On the other hand, the Saturn person may feel Mercury person is not committed enough to joint projects or has less stick-to-it-tiveness than necessary. While this is not a fun and games combination, it can be useful in relationships or situations where you need to cope with serious issues.


Mercury conjunct Pluto
As Pluto takes many years to move through a sign, aspects to it from another's planets are not particularly significant from a relationship perspective. These aspects tend mostly to show how a a person relates to an entire generation with Pluto in this position (including yourself if you're a member of this generation). If the conjunction is close (within a degree or so of exact) there can be scheming by each partner against the other , or a tendency to manipulate, or misrepresent facts in order to gain control over the other.


Venus sextile Uranus
It's difficult to say what kind of relationship this aspect will produce, except that it will be, in some ways, both different and stimulating. There is a potential for lovers with this aspect to explore erotic territory they might avoid under other circumstances. You will probably feel great friendship for one another in addition to any romantic attraction that may be between you. One caveat: you should - in fact, must - give each other plenty of freedom to get the best from the relationship.


Venus conjunct Midheaven
This is an excellent aspect to have betwen two people who are involved in professional or business dealings together. The Midheaven person may provide the Venus person with greater security while the Venus person's social contacts and social skills can help advance the Midheaven person's status and professional ambitions.


Mars sextile Jupiter
You can support each other in taking enthusiastic action and the activities you enter into together are more likely to have favorable results than those that either of you ventures into alone. The Jupiter person can help direct the Mars person's energy into worthy causes; the Mars person can spur the Jupiter person to act on- rather than simply pontificate about- philosophy, ideals and other goals based on issues of principle.


Part Two -- Planets in Houses
This section is concerned with where the planets of one partner fall in the houses of the other, also known as comparative house placement. For instance, if you have 12 degrees Cancer rising (also known as Cancer Ascendant or Cancer on the first house cusp) and your partner has Moon in 15 degrees Cancer, your partner's Moon falls in your first house. Your experience of your partner's emotions, family and moods (Moon) will influence how you see yourself (Ascendant). In comparative house placement analysis, the planets generally have a greater impact on the houses than the houses do on the planets. In other words, where your partner's planets fall in your houses is a better indication of how you experience him or her than vice-versa. And where your planets fall in his or her houses will tell more about how he or she experiences you.


George W. Bush's Planets in Laura Bush's Houses

HOUSE EIGHT
The eighth house deals with a host of intense and weighty issues: death, obsessions, repression, jealousy, taxes, joint resources, inheritances and other people's possessions. It also represents what you want or need sexually. When someone else's planets fall in your eighth house, the energies of those planets will have an impact on how you think, feel and act concerning eighth house issues. If, for instance, your rich old Great-Uncle Harry's Jupiter falls in your eighth house, he might bequeath you a generous inheritance in his will.


Sun in House 8
This placement often indicates intense contacts that swing between harmony and discord. The Sun person can have a powerful effect on the eighth house person's emotions and sexuality. There is, however, the potential for manipulation, secretiveness, jealousy and emotional flare-ups. There can be a greater than usual focus in this relationship on joint resources, inheritances, taxes, insurance and other money matters. The Sun person can gain from eighth house person's assets or may control the joint resources of both partners. The above comments apply most strongly when both Sun and house cusp are in the same sign.


Uranus in House 8
This often indicates a potential for sudden changes in fortune, for better or worse, in your joint resources and holdings. Often, it's an indication of something untraditional, unconventional or eccentric in matters of sex. You may have secret mutual kinks or quirks. You can be powerful agents of change in each other's lives.


HOUSE NINE
The ninth house is directly opposite the third in your chart and represents a higher order of some of the issues governed by the third house. Foreign travel or other long trips, higher learning, philosophy, culture, religion, law and book publishing are all matters related to this house. When the planets of another person fall into your ninth house, the energies of those planets can affect how you respond to ninth house issues. For instance, if a friend's Uranus, the planet of innovation and surprises, falls in your ninth, he or she might introduce you to a new philosophical system or a new way of thinking about situations or events; or he/she might be the perfect traveling companion for an adventurous trip.


Mercury in House 9
This comparative placement tends to show intellectual compatibility. The Mercury person's words can have an impact on the ninth house person's beliefs. The ninth house person can stimulate the Mercury person to explore deeper, more expansive issues and pursue greater scholarship. This is a good combination for those who enjoy intellectual exchanges and is also favorable for partners who travel together.


Saturn in House 9
The Saturn person can help the ninth house person get serious about, and take practical concrete action to achieve scholarly, cultural or idealistic goals. There is a slight potential for incompatibility of beliefs, opinions or ideals; or of rigidity in beliefs that can create a gulf between you. If there are major harsh aspects from Saturn to the ninth house person's chart, the Saturn person may intentionally or unintentionally limit the ninth house person's access to education, cultural activities or travel.


Pluto in House 9
The Pluto person can have a subtle transformative effect on the beliefs and ideals of the ninth house person, but this usually requires aspects from Pluto to the ninth house person's personal planets for the potentials to be fully activated.


HOUSE TEN
Achievement, professional life, authority, status and ambition are all governed by the tenth house, also known as the Midheaven. This is also the house that represents your father, just as the fourth house represents your mother. (Please note: in some families, where the mother was the dominant parent, or the father was the greater nurturer of the two, the house rulership works better in reverse, with the fourth representing the father; the tenth the mother. Usually, however, the traditional rulership works best. ) When the planets of another person fall in your tenth house, the energies of those planets will affect the way you respond to tenth house issues. For instance, if someone's Mars, the planet of competitiveness and aggression, falls here, you might find yourself in professional competition with him or her.


Venus in House 10
With this placement, the Venus person's social skills and contacts can help improve the status and professional standing of the tenth house person. This trait is accentuated if Venus is within a degree or two of the tenth house cusp. The tenth house person's professional standing can, in return, improve the Venus person's security and comfort. If Venus makes any major negative aspects to the tenth house person's chart, he or she may encourage the tenth house person to spend unwisely on luxuries that denote status; or to make a show of status and wealth.


Mars in House 10
This placement can mean that you have a stimulating effect on each other's ambitions. The Mars person especially, can spur the tenth house person to climb more aggressively in his or her career. If you are in the same profession, you are likely to compete with, and challenge each other to do better. If there are harsh major aspects from Mars to the tenth house person's chart, disagreements over professional matters can have a detrimental effect on your personal relationship.


HOUSE ELEVEN
Friends, acquaintances, associates, associations, clubs, and virtually any other group you feel a part of are all matters related to the eleventh house. This is also the house governing your hopes, wishes and professional values (personal values are matters of the second house). When someone else's planets fall here in your chart, the energies of those planets will affect your reactions to eleventh house issues. For instance, if a friend's Pluto, the planet of power,falls in your eleventh, your association with that person can potentia lly bring you greater power and control.


Moon in House 11
This tends to indicate a warm, friendly relationship where each of you genuinely supports and cares for the other, unless other chart factors contradict this. The Moon person's feelings are likely to play a major role in who the eleventh house person's friends are, or what organizations the eleventh house person belongs to. The acquaintances, friends and family of each are likely to play major roles in the relationship.


Jupiter in House 11
This tends to indicate that you have a warm, trusting friendship as the basis of your relationship. You are likely to feel that you're both part of the same group and that, through your association, you can achieve your individual and mutual ideals and goals. The combination works best when each of you is willing to give the other freedom.


Neptune in House 11
It's likely that this relationship has a basis in friendship and idealism. This combination is favorable for relationships where the partners are involved in groups or organizations with humanitarian, spiritual or socially uplifting goals . You may feel that this is a dream-come-true kind of relationship. However there is the potential for disillusionment if you refuse to see each other as you really are, warts and all.


Laura Bush's Planets in George W. Bush's Houses

HOUSE ONE
This is the house of self expression. The sign on the cusp of this house is called your rising sign or Ascendant. It shows your self image, the face you show the world and how others see you. The image you present can either be quite close to or very different from the inner you, depending on whether your Ascendant is in a sign that is similar or different in characteristics to the signs your Sun and Moon are in. When the planets of your partner or another fall into this, your most personal house, you will relate to the energies of that person, represented by those planets, in a very personal and immediate way; there may be a kind of instant recognition between you in these areas. For instance, if the Mercury of another person (which rules communications, short trips, thoughts, worries, and work, among other issues) falls into your first house, you may find that you instantly recognize, and/or identify with, the ways that person communicates or the ideas he or she has.


Saturn in House 1
This placement shows that this is likely to be a serious relationship. The Saturn person will elicit feelings of responsibility, discipline and practicality in the first house person. This can either be an important, constructive partnership or it can feel oppressive and too fraught with obligation and restriction. If it is the latter, it will probably be because there are major harsh aspects from Saturn to the first house person's chart, or because there are other major negative factors in the chart comparison.


Pluto in House 1
If Pluto is closely conjunct the first house cusp, it can indicate an intense relationship that has a transformative effect on the first house person. The Pluto person can help the first house person focus on issues of personal power, control and achievement. There is likely to be an element of compulsiveness or obsession in the relationship if Pluto is within a degree or two of the first house cusp.


HOUSE THREE
The third house is involved in communication, basic schooling and training, siblings, neighborhood, community activities and extended family. When another person's planets fall in your third house, the energies symbolized by those planets will have an impact on the issues of the house. For instance, if a friend's Venus (the planet of romance, relationship, emotion, art, luxury, among other things) falls in your third house, your emotional response toward this person might be in some way similar to what you would feel toward a sibling, or you might communicate emotionally with one another.


Neptune in House 3
There is the potential for a lot of behind the scenes or secret communication between the two of you; or for communication that is not what it seems on the surface. The Neptune person can inspire the third house person to be more imaginative and creative with words and ideas.


HOUSE FOUR
The fourth house rules the home, real estate, your mother (and your mothering instincts), as well as home, domestic and family situations in general. It is also the house ruling your final resting place. Those whose planets fall in your fourth house will affect you on a deep level, and may arouse your protective and nurturing instincts. If the Sun, Moon, Venus, Jupiter or Ascendant of another falls in your fourth house, you may make good housemates or domestic partners.


Sun in House 4
This is likely to be a relationship centered around family and home-based activities. The Sun person will feel at home with the fourth house person and the fourth house person tends to enjoy nurturing or otherwise caring for the needs of the Sun person. The fourth house person's domestic situation, emotions and family relationships may be powerfully affected by Sun person, for better or worse, depending on other chart factors. Often, this placement is an indication of people who live under the same roof, with the Sun person likely to be the dominant partner.


Mars in House 4
The Mars person has the potential to stir up or upset the fourth house person's family or domestic situation and feelings. This is often a difficult placement for those living under the same roof as the Mars person can be selfish or argumentative about shared domestic responsibilites. The placement works best when you're doing something active regarding home or real estate together.


Jupiter in House 4
This tends to indicate that you will have a generous, tolerant attitude toward one another in domestic situations. The Jupiter person may be overly indulgent or overly-protective of the fourth house person. You are likely to share similar family values or ideals regarding family and home.


HOUSE FIVE
Some astrologers refer to the fifth as the party house, and it's an apt description. The fifth house presides over entertainment and fun of all kinds; including romance, gambling, parties, creativity and pleasure in general. It is also the house of children, and may describe certain traits of your first child. When the planets of another fall into your fifth house, the energies of these planets will have an affect on what you do, think and feel about fifth house issues. If someone's Sun falls into your fifth house, for instance, you may be attracted to that person as a romantic partner or as someone to simply go out and have good times with.


Mercury in House 5
There is likely to be much discussion between you about the relationship itself. The Mercury person's ideas tend to affect the way the fifth house person views entertainment, romance, children and fun times in general. The creative impulses of the fifth house person are likely to stimulate the thoughts and communication of the Mercury person.


Venus in House 5
This placement is favorable for romantic relationships and is a strong indication of sexual attraction. You are likely to enjoy similar forms of entertainment and to be well matched socially. The Venus person may very possibly appeal to the fifth house person as the answer to his or her desires. If you have children together, you will probably spoil them and/or shower them with somewhat extravagant gifts.


HOUSE EIGHT
The eighth house deals with a host of intense and weighty issues: death, obsessions, repression, jealousy, taxes, joint resources, inheritances and other people's possessions. It also represents what you want or need sexually. When someone else's planets fall in your eighth house, the energies of those planets will have an impact on how you think, feel and act concerning eighth house issues. If, for instance, your rich old Great-Uncle Harry's Jupiter falls in your eighth house, he might bequeath you a generous inheritance in his will.


Moon in House 8
Often , this placement indicates a deeply emotional relationship, where much occurs beneath the surface. There is some danger that one or the other of you will use negative emotional tactics -- such as jealousy, stonewalling, withholding of information or sex -- to attempt to control the relationship. The Moon person's emotional responses or family can have impact on your joint resources. The eighth house person may have a potent impact on Moon person's family situation and/or feelings.


HOUSE ELEVEN
Friends, acquaintances, associates, associations, clubs, and virtually any other group you feel a part of are all matters related to the eleventh house. This is also the house governing your hopes, wishes and professional values (personal values are matters of the second house). When someone else's planets fall here in your chart, the energies of those planets will affect your reactions to eleventh house issues. For instance, if a friend's Pluto, the planet of power, falls in your eleventh, your association with that person can potentially bring you greater power and control.


Uranus in House 11
You are likely to have a relationship based on friendship, and respect for each other's individuality and freedom. There is a likelihood that you both feel part of some larger group or association.
