Feel The Rhythm: Ascendant
Never underestimate the power
of the Ascendant! It may be easy to underplay, or even
dismiss altogether, the Ascendant’s role in interpersonal
relationships when we think of the Ascendant as the
“mask” we wear when we meet others. If the Ascendant is
a mere mask, shouldn’t it only be important at the very
beginning of a relationship? We don’t think so. In fact,
we feel that the Ascendant has an ongoing, vital role in
relationships of all kinds, including long-lasting,
one-to-one relationships. We have found that interplays
between Ascendants can be the source of basic conflict or
harmony, on a body level.
Remember as well that the
Ascendant defines the Descendant, which is a highly sensitive relationship point in the natal chart.
Me: Grand Trines in Synastry
In our experience, one of the most powerful indicators of
special relationships occurs when a simple trine in one
person's natal chart is effectively turned into a
Trine by another person's planet(s), particularly when it
involves personal planets. For example, in one person's
chart, Mars is in the early degrees of Sagittarius and
trines the Moon in the early degrees of Aries. A planet
in the early degrees of Leo would form a Grand Trine in this
native's chart, but doesn't exist. Her partner's Sun fills
this pattern, as it is in the early degrees of Leo. This
powerful connection is especially potent when it is
reciprocated. A special bond exists between the natives.
Haven't We Met Before?: Nodes of
Many astrologers consider the
Nodes of the Moon an important axis, and some believe the
axis relates to past life connections. Whether or not you agree
with theories of reincarnation, this axis is a sensitive
point in any chart and it deals with important life lessons.
When strong contacts exist with the Nodes of the Moon in
synastry, there is a deep compulsion to be together. Read
more detail about
Nodes of the Moon in Synastry here.
You are Made for Me: The Vertex
A lesser known point in any natal
chart is the vertex. It acts almost like a secondary
descendant. Strong interaspects involving the vertex are found in
the synastry of people who feel they are made for each
other. There is a fated quality attached to the vertex.
When sign positions of planets
are interchanged, there is a special compatibility and
fascination. For example, if one person has a Sun in Aries and
Venus in Taurus, and another person has Sun in Taurus and Venus in
Aries, although they will act quite differently, this pair will
have some interesting exchanges in their relationship.
I Feel For You: Sun/Moon Contacts
When one partner's Sun makes an
aspect with the other's Moon, there is a natural affinity. The
Moon person supports the Sun in quiet but meaningful ways, and the
Sun person returns the favor with an affirming energy.
You Rock My World: Uranus,
Neptune, and Pluto (and Chiron) Connections
When the outer planets (Uranus, Neptune, and Pluto) figure
strongly in the synastry of two individuals, there is
generally a powerful feeling of being uplifted and
transformed through contact with each other. Chiron figuring
prominently in synastry seems to be just as potent.
You Give My Life Meaning: Sun/Moon Midpoint
A person's Sun/Moon midpoint () is a
point of great sensitivity. In a natal chart, planets that form a
hard aspect to this point are highlighted, and tend to reveal a
strong sense of destiny and identity. Naturally, when a planet in
another person's chart makes a hard aspect to this point in a
native's chart, that other person tends to give the native a
feeling of purpose and meaning.

Some astrologers are studying
the role of asteroids in astrology. Strong connections
between the asteroids Eros () and Psyche
() in synastry point to a
powerful romantic and sexual relationship.
Soulmates always have a powerful
composite chart. That is, their composite chart is not
scatteredit contains plenty of
strong aspects and connections. The Sun
and Moon are generally strongly aspected (not necessarily with each other);
and similar patterns exist with the other personal planetsVenus, Mercury, and Mars.
