The Playing Field


Welcome Paul and Joanne, to Simpaticos, an analysis of your relationship, through the use of a unique tool, the Composite Chart. This is a type of chart that astrologers use to get an overview of a partnership. It is constructed by using the midpoints between each of your individual charts. The Composite Chart is a Blueprint that represents a symbolic meeting place of your shared mental, physical, emotional and spiritual chemistry.

Have you wondered why the two of you find it easier to agree on some topics and experience distance when trying to discuss others? This report will likely touch on some areas where you might need insight.

There are no perfect relationships. We can strive to make our interactions with others more productive and meaningful. The pages that follow will describe places of harmony in your relationship. It will also point to places of potential conflict. You will notice that some descriptions will appear to contradict each other. Astrology offers a lens through which to view a wide variety of ways to express ourselves in order to make better use of our vast resources.

Relationships are made more from the fabric of a verb, rather than that of a noun. They are in a continuous process of becoming. You will eventually have changing expectations of one another. Your individual search for growth and new direction is rewarding and yet can create tension. It is important to find ways to make room for your individual needs. Nothing truly stays the same. Perhaps this report will inspire the two of you to finds ways to mentally stay on the same page. Communication is so vital in clearly relating to each other.

Romantic love is a powerful belief system in modern day society. Some people have even compared it to a religion. Our faith goes out to another person. Romance charges a relationship with more emotional intensity than any other type of partnership. Many of our hopes and dreams are invested in finding a soul mate.

We seek happiness in a lover. How can such a simple thing get so complicated? It's that each of us has our own definition of happiness.

This report could create new options. Relax. It is not intended to judge either of you. Pause if something makes you take a deep look at yourself or your partner. Each of us is really a student of life when it comes to relationships. Learning how to communicate and to truly hear the mind and heart of another person is a life long quest. Remember that you are not alone when it comes to understanding how to better handle your human relations.

Paul and Joanne, try to let your eyes scan the pages that follow with an open mind. Perhaps you will be stimulated into taking a refreshing look at one another!

Happy Navigating!




The Players: The 10 Planets

Part One: The Lead Roles

The Sun

The Sun is the center of our solar system. It generously shares its radiance with the other planets. In Astrology, the Sun is the heart of the chart. It points to ways that your relationship needs to confidently shine. Keep the fires of your Sun burning brightly and proudly together. Love will follow. Happiness will fill your minds, bodies and souls. The Sun stands for ego needs, will power and creative vitality.

Forget your own Sun signs for the moment, Paul and Joanne.

Your shared Sun sign could be different than your individual Sun signs. Remember that we are talking about your combined Sun. It is the fusion of your two hearts.

Your life together is apt to be filled with experimentation and exciting experiences. The inventor and rebel in each of you stimulate lively discussions. There can be a dislike of routines. You might not care for strict schedules.

Excessive intellectual aloofness might make you feel distant. Hiding emotional insecurity behind a show of mental strength can drive a wedge between you. Coming out from behind fears brings a great closeness.

Eccentric natures can be entertaining to each other and to your friends. You both can enjoy surprises. People with individualistic outlooks are fun to be around.

Freedom must be balanced. It is important that neither of you be an extreme follower of the other. This relationship thrives on mutual independence. Freedom does not mean we can always get our own way. A "different just to be different" attitude or extreme aloofness can cause tension.

Communication breakdowns must be fixed. Sometimes space will help bridge the gulf and restore a clear perspective. Each of you can arouse new perspectives, as well as a lot of nervous energy! Expressing your insights can help settle the differences.

Your creative vitality can guide you in the giving and receiving of support. Both of you need to feel you can fulfill your individual destinies. Enjoy being friends and lovers in this adventurous and sometimes unpredictable partnership.

The Moon

Countless song lyrics, poems and lofty dreams have been inspired through gazing at the Moon. The Moon's sign and house position represents the intimacy and feelings you share with each other. Establishing a sense of security and a home are other lunar sides of life. The Moon symbolizes the imagination you share from your inner landscapes.

You will need to talk this dimension of your relationship through carefully. You can balance these two tendencies in your everyday relating with one another.

Aloofness! It might cause a deep wrinkle in your caring for one another. Find a happy medium between your emotional and mental sides. Communicate to each other's heart as much as the mind. Support each other's future goals and you just might have a friend forever!

Let your imaginations guide you to walk with a spirit of autonomy, and yet find areas where the farthest reaches of your worlds can meet. Embracing the closeness found in the present may be wiser than pinning all of your hopes for the promise of the future--though it's hard not to look ahead!

Your shared values can give you confidence in one another. Your willingness to work hard for what you want is a unifying factor.

Let your intuition lead you to full cups of self-esteem. Accepting each other at face value does wonders for feeling close. Positive strokes never hurt either.

The Ascendant

We are taking a short intermission from the planets to introduce you to an additional key part of your relationship. The Ascendant or Rising Sign is the sign that starts the 1st house of the chart. The Ascendant is one of the twelve signs with a special role serving as an ambassador. It acts as a persona or mask for an individual or a relationship. The Ascendant is the personality through which we interact with the world.

The Ascendant is the way we appear to others. It is their first impressions of us. You meet someone and he or she seems to be confident, shy, talkative, cheerful, etc. The same can be said for a couple. The two people might seem theatrical, dreamy, or businesslike.

Ascendant in Capricorn

People may see the two of you as serious and all business. You are more fun when you let your hair down and interact spontaneously. Ambition is personified in your faces.

Making decisions can be done through adopting carefully laid out strategies. Leadership positions are waiting to have your names on an office door. You can be respected for your commitment to what you promise.

The Part of Fortune

Your Sun, Moon and Ascendant can be combined or blended into a cosmic alchemy, known as the Part of Fortune. This is not a planet, but rather a reference point in the chart. The Arabian astrologers of the Middle Ages are given credit for its discovery. The Part of Fortune is said to show where we can expect to find good fortune and even luck. Do we really need to take a look at something from the long ago past, if it will serve as nothing more than a relic to hang on the wall? A translation of this ancient symbol into modern terms makes this symbol worth investigating. Why? Because it can give clues to special paths that lead to harmony and a spirit of feeling united.

Think of the Part of Fortune as the potential corridor leading to Opportunity. It is a way to read the pulse rate of the partnership, indicating ways to reach a shared sense of fulfillment.

A willingness to be patient to realize the full completion of a strategy is within the framework of your relationship. You rejoice in each milestone. One or both of you cherish certain traditions. You both will be called upon to lead. It is here that your destiny can be smiled upon by good fortune.

Part of Fortune in the Twelfth House

The imagination you inspire in each other has a way of magically opening the doors to lucky happenings. You must have the faith to follow through on your convictions. There is a creative intensity that rests greatly on trusting your intuitive awareness. You are a healing force for others. A talent for expressing yourselves artistically is possible.

Inspiration that flows between two people can be traced to our good-natured friend in the sky.

Jupiter in Pisces

Your intuition is apt to be far out in front of your reality. Be patient in creating a relationship together that represents each of you.

Travel to exotic places keeps you close in mind, body and spirit.

Your principles and ideals are merged. Aesthetic talent is rich in your companionship. Performing for others is rewarding. People forget about their troubles when in your presence.

Astronomers say that if Saturn fell from the sky it is light enough to float on an ocean. Some people dread hearing about where Saturn is in their chart more than they do going to the dentist! The fortune tellers of old always painted this planet with "heavy" interpretations. They presented this planet as being a god of doom and gloom. In modern astrology, this motif denotes endurance and ambition. In mythology, Saturn was Chronos, the god of time, reflecting the wisdom that can be learned from past experiences. You could say Saturn is a "Cosmic Chiropractor", showing adjustments needing to be made along life's way. There can be frustration in repeating the same mistakes. Saturn's sign and house themes are associated with Commitment and Reality-Testing. The two of you may find clues here about how you define your relationship roles. Career drive is a Saturn hallmark. Saturn shadows are fear, rigidity and a need to be compulsively controlling. There is no longevity without partners dealing with the symbolism of this particular celestial wanderer. With a lot of practice and patience the two of you can get good in making this side of your relationship flow--honest! Saturn can become more a god of Success!

Saturn in Sagittarius

You are a couple that must stay true to your idealism. It is hard for you to commit to anything that isn't fun. People are moved by the steadfastness you show in sticking to your principles. You may even seem a little old-fashioned this way. When you decide to act on a plan it can be put into operation swiftly. There is a chance you will lose interest in ideas that don't yield quick results.

Staying focused will be difficult at times for the two of you. A tendency is to be very expansive. You dislike having your options so clearly defined that there is no breathing room. Your style is cramped by super planning types of individuals. You are a playful couple. Even your serious ambitions have a dose of humor lining them.

You can display a pragmatic philosophy about your most heartfelt issues. It is senseless to argue with each other. Your partner can probably match you word for word, and even sarcasm for sarcasm. You both want many of the same things. It's finding the smoothest routes to getting there that will take your patience and wisdom.

You can encourage each other to leap over your fears into new challenges. It is your sincerity and generosity that often warms each other's hearts. You won't have all of the answers your partner needs. But you can be a voice of support and insight that helps light the way.

Saturn in the Eleventh House

A serious sense of direction is your guiding light. You are a couple that will commit to a plan if it is clearly defined. There is an ability to be inventive in business. Authority figures can appreciate the stabilizing insights you offer. You tend to respect individuals with sound reasoning powers.

Showing indifference to your partner's emotional needs is shortsighted. You must talk issues through. Being comfortable with closeness and distance might take practice. Solitude could be needed by each of you when life is very stressful. It is your way of recharging yourselves. Your friends may see you both as protective of your space. They likely appreciate your sincere loyalty.

Professional associations could be special. Your work excellence can become widely known among your peers. Attending conferences or joining groups might be a good way to network. Receiving awards is possible for both of you.

Your being together contains an atmosphere of friendship as well as romance. Receiving support for your goals makes you feel this is a special relationship. You may like the way your partner can think progressive or in conservative terms as needed. Your connection is enlivened by creating a new goal occasionally.


Try to visualize a maverick planet orbiting on its side, whereas the other planets sit straight up and down. Uranus! This planet was discovered in the eighteenth century, sandwiched in between the American and French Revolutions. Is it any great wonder that this planet's sign and house occupations show our individuality and innovative ideas? Experimentation. Inventiveness. These are two more themes of this exciting and trend-setting entity. What is the down side to this rebel? A tendency in exhibiting a sarcastic tongue in your everyday communication. Launching sudden irresponsible actions will not make you feel like friends. Uranus can be the source of enjoying the refreshing insights you bring to your partnership. Treat each other as equals and you are likely responding to a positive tendency embedded in this planet's symbolism.

Uranus in Pisces

There is a planet that adds a mystical tone to our lives. Neptune defies being labeled as part of the physical world. It is our spiritual awareness on one hand and desire to escape from earthly reality on the other. Both are possible!

Part Three: Planetary Aspects

It's time now to mention another technical side of your report. (If you don't like technical explanations, skip right to the Aspect Interpretations). You have already been introduced to the ten planets. Certain planetary pairs in your chart have a special relationship to one another due to particular angular distances separating them, known as aspects. You could almost say the two planets in an aspect travel and interact together along the same circuit. The following aspect interpretations or descriptions will be listed under five types. Two are known as the soft aspects: the sextile (60 degrees) and trine (120 degrees). These two aspects generally point to more gentle themes found in your relationship. They indicate a lower voltage of electricity and produce less friction. The planets involved in a trine or sextile are more likely to be areas where you flow together without much effort.

The more hard or intense aspects are the conjunction (0 degrees), square (90 degrees) and opposition (180 degrees). They require our understanding and will point to key ways the two of you must communicate and negotiate. Planets that are part of an intense aspect will show how you energize one another. These higher voltage aspects don't mean you want to avoid them, but more so to develop a true understanding of how to use this energy constructively. "Soft" does not mean good and "intense" does not imply bad. It is often the more intense aspects that deepen the bond of a partnership. The interpretation of any planetary aspect depends greatly on the symbolism of the two planets forming an aspect.

It might be helpful to keep some key words in mind for the aspects. The sextile is a promise of Excitement and Eagerness. The planets in this aspect give clues how your energies support one another. The trine is a special Harmony shown by two planets. There is often positive regard for one another that comes spontaneously. We expect good things to be delivered in the trine.

The conjunction is where two planets are joined at the hip. There is a Fusion or powerful blending of these two energies. The square can reveal where you will encounter Friction in your relationship. Pay special attention to these aspects, as they are opportunities for growth as much as discord. The opposition requires a Balancing act. It is similar to a seesaw. Each of you may find yourselves taking turns in acting out one planet or the other.

It might be helpful to refer to Parts One and Two to refresh your memory about the meaning of the Planets, Ascendant and Midheaven, as you read the aspects that follow. Remember that it is usually the more intense aspects that stretch us the most. The more positively you use these challenging planetary combinations the greater will be your understanding of each other.

Note that a planet might be involved in several different aspects. In other words, the planet is interfacing its energies with numerous other planets (or even with the Ascendant or Midheaven). A "heavily aspected planet" plays a key role in your relating to each other.
