Bill Clinton & Hillary Clinton: Part IITHE COMPOSITE SATURN
Saturn is usually considered the bugbear among planets and has an evil reputation that it only partially deserves. It is associated with restriction, contraction, dearth, debilitation, and a host of other adjectives that add up to not getting what you want. That is, however, only partly true. It might be better to say that it describes extreme delineation, concreteness, and finality - reality in the most concrete sense. Much of our lives are comprised of hopes, plans, desires, dreams, wishes, and expectation, and Saturn describes what actually becomes of them. So in such a goal-oriented, future-driven society as ours, what actually happens is all too often a disappointment, the result of failed unrealistic expectations. Thus, Saturn in the composite chart is where you both get down to brass tacks and determine (or have determined for you) what actually is to be...But...like any other planet, it will not touch every aspect of the relationship and so you are free to be selective if you know what areas it is either supporting or restricting. You want to know what the bottom line is everywhere, however; and that is what Saturn will tell you...If you recognize early what the downsides and the support pillars of the relationship are, you can use one to stand on while you either avoid or make repairs upon the other at your leisure. If you do not, ignorance is the ally of the dark side and it will have much greater power to pull you in and cripple you. Find your foundation stones early, so your house will not be built upon sand; and, in time, your temple will rise to the skies.
SATURN in LEO
When push comes to shove, this relationship is likely to have a bigger footprint than most; when you have to cut back or make do you still need a lot more to do it with than many others. Fundamentally, you don't have a lean, mean bottom line but require scope and breadth, no matter how tenuous, in order to achieve a sense of security. Therefore it will be well to be generous even when it seems you cannot afford it, as this will be the sort of attitude (contradictory though it may seem) which will bring to you what it is that you lack. There may a tendency to take play, enjoyment, and good times too seriously, but the reason is that they, being a primary foundation of your inner security, are more meaningful to you than most...If there is a down side it might be not taking problems as seriously as they demand which might make you seem a little Pollyana-esque to the more distressed around you. Your rosier view, however, will likely prevail. Stability through maintenance of joy is the operative concept.
THE COMPOSITE URANUS
Uranus is one of the three relatively recently-discovered outer planets, and all three are marked with a reality common to new experience and endeavor. They are not fully explored and thus not very much under our control. Uranus...is associated with sudden events, shocks, realizations, discoveries, and other highly delineated events that sheer off quickly and completely from their previous states or surroundings. For creatures of habit, such as most of us are, this is usually upsetting and generally bad news. But it does not have to be. Your ability to use Uranus instead of letting it abuse you, is directly related to how flexible and quick on your feet you are. It also is linked to how willing you are to accept and welcome change as part of the nature of things. If you accept it grudgingly, then Uranus will always be a symbol of malice; if you welcome it with open arms, it will be a deliverance and an inspiration. In the composite chart, Uranus is where the two of you are repeatedly forced to rise to this occasion, and its contacts will tell in what areas of life it usually manifests...Perhaps the only way to deal with this planet is to expect the unexpected, thus robbing it of harm and providing it with a welcome....Where this occurs in the composite chart, keep your eyes wide open, your stance wide, and your tolerance level on maximum.
URANUS in GEMINI
This is a good position for Uranus as it allows you the freedom to articulate your opportunities for self-discovery and get them refined and agreed-upon before having to embrace and implement them in your life together. This can make for an easier transition and allow you to integrate change into the relationship a step at a time, whereas others (or yourselves individually) may be faced with a more difficult time accepting the less understood demands of reality. On the other hand, at times this can work against you, as it can put change into a perpetual state of discussion and indecision because you have so much opportunity to distance it intellectually and thus avoid coming to grips with it in real life, particularly when it requires real compromise on the part of either of you to come to grips with sometimes alien feelings or needs in the other. It can be easier to just call it too weird to deal with and dismiss it, but this will only lead to resentment. The new and necessary always seems strange at first, and in fact it is usually your unwillingness to understand and deal with it that makes it seem odd or troublesome to begin with. Perceived kinks or troubles coming from your partner are often the chance to learn and grow that you have been looking for, only you didn't expect it in quite this disguise. Look at it as originality, rather than nonconformity, and new paths of fulfillment open up in a flash.
THE COMPOSITE NEPTUNE
The effects of Neptune, another outer planet and a recent discovery, are often largely out of our control both by our unfamiliarity with its effects and the apparent nature of the planet which represents the uncertain, dreams, illusions, ideals, mystery, and the higher unexplored (and perhaps unexplorable entirely) plane of the spiritual world...When we find an area of mystery, it is our natural instinct to provide something to fill that void. Nature abhors a vacuum and our minds rush in to fill it with every kind of speculation and fantasy, if only to have something to act on in the area. Whatever is actually there will turn up eventually. In the meantime we provide ourselves with an image which may be close enough to the truth to better help us function or may be off in fantasyland and fail us utterly if we are unwise enough to lean on it. We know only in hindsight. Thus, in a composite chart, this point becomes the place where dreams, fantasies, hopes and ideals meet or clash, and inspire us or drag us down in confusion and conflict. Too many wars and personal battles have been fought over it needlessly, because none of these things actually existed until later. That's the crux of it: don't fight over what isn't there, at least not yet...Dreams and fantasies belong to each of you individually; and when they are similar enough to share...they can be the greatest of joys. If one of you tries to enforce any of it on the other, however, everything will turn distasteful and there will be no dreams left; the mist will be blown away and only a charred landscape will remain. Where this point occurs, go gently, expect nothing, and everything will be returned to you.
NEPTUNE in LIBRA
If there is any main, driving force in your hopes and dreams, it is that everything should be just right and everyone be happy with the way things turn out. It is a very unselfish drive and one which makes you strive very hard for the good of all and make every effort to make it come true. You are, in the nicest sense, idealists. The greatest challenge you face lifelong, therefore, is not formulating the best but coping with less than the best when it so often turns out that way. Life's like that, and some rejuvenate themselves to try some more, while others can become embittered and cynical by the experience and cease to believe in the power of hope and the ultimate impact of their ideals. Your inclination to keep moving will likely be indefatigable, and it is the direction that it takes that will determine your happiness. When all does not turn out right, reshape your expectations based on your original vision and proceed further. Avoid the temptation to lower your standards, as to do so will simply lower the ultimate quality of your life. In the end, you're only as good as what you can envision and strive for, and the individual results are less important than the lifelong effect you have on each other and those around you. Don't let adversity, when it comes, get the best of you: just regroup and find another way to manifest what you believe to be right. When you keep your eye on the horizon, the bumps in the road become just a rhythmic accompaniment to travel on life's highway.
THE COMPOSITE PLUTO
Of the three outer planets, Pluto is the most recently discovered (1930) and least subject to our control. As such, it is even considered the planet of power and control, ultimately because it so controls us in our attempt to overcome it. It is, of course, appropriately named after the ancient god of death, the thing which in the last analysis we cannot control; and at the most basic instinctual level, all the control we try to exercise in life is simply a ploy to cheat death a little longer. It is called the survival instinct. The point at which Pluto occurs in the composite chart is thus, at a deep level, where we meet in our ability to face death. But it doesn't manifest itself that way on the surface. Instead, it shows up as the methods we use to keep control in order to avoid the certainty of personal annihilation...Where prominently placed, for well or ill, it will give the relationship an aura of inescapability and predestination, something that sweeps over you both (like sex or death) and takes you out of yourselves. Similarly, you may find the relationship itself has something of this effect on others, giving you a greater power (a power which you must be careful not to abuse) over those around you. In the end, however, it is the willingness to relinquish control as well as take it that resolves problematic issues. In the meantime, the ability to step away from the relationship and out of its sway, at least in Pluto-affected areas, can be an important safety measure.
PLUTO in LEO
There is a fundamental message that you share: you must make the world a better place to live in and get your message of how to do it across in a way that it will be heard. At its purest, this is a highly idealistic and laudable goal, but the methods of formulating and implementing it can be helpful and creative or negative and destructive, depending on how you handle it. Because the "must do" feeling is pervasive, it can be easy at times to believe it is your duty to enforce your opinion on others even when they don't want it, because you believe it is ultimately for their benefit. That, however, is not your decision or prerogative, and to do so is a fundamental violation not only of others but of your own contract with the Ultimate. The life and death issues you have to face (which are really just life and death, themselves) are individual to you and only you can meet them. If you can do that, it will be an achievement, so keep your own house in order and let others keep theirs. Where you can share these feelings, you will have great power and faith in each other and your personal destiny together. When you cannot, try to understand your differences, but above all, leave them be. Real change, such as it can happen to most of us (and that is less than we suppose), comes only from within and cannot be forced...
You may notice that when you are together you create a larger-than-life image which at times may be difficult to live up to individually. It is as if you carry your own party around with you wherever you go and fire up those around you to get things moving. Sometimes you may find it more tiring to be the party host than the party guest, and you may need some quality time individually to rest and sort things out. Nevertheless, you are gifted with an energizing facade when you are together which you both can ride to give you an extra boost of enthusiasm, and you may find others looking to you for joint leadership who weren't so supportive of you individually. It would be easy to resent that, but that's politics and to a certain extent you make yourselves into public figures just by the chemistry of being together. Go for the playful and fun side of it and don't take yourselves too seriously. You'll find that your credibility and support in your social surroundings is heightened proportionately...You don't have to seek out being the center of attention; just let your feelings radiate and the world will beat a path to your door.
MARS in FIRST HOUSE
This is a highly energetic relationship and will likely sweep both of you along with it at a rate that may be difficult to keep up with. There will be a considerable drive to be doing something all the time, and it is a good idea to have something always at hand to do to take up all that energy. Keep busy and you will keep happy, because the devil really will find use for restless, idle hands. This relationship allows both of you to be assertive (indeed, aggressive) in ways you might not have gotten into individually, and it will be a bit like driving a powerful car - heady, exhilarating, but safer on the open road than in traffic, at least until you're thoroughly used to driving it. As long as you have an agreed-upon direction, you will be a dynamic duo indeed, but if you get at odds with each other you can create world-class disputes as well. You've got a lot of effective firepower, so don't point it at each other. The only thing you'll have trouble doing as a partnership is keeping still and just letting things happen. Thus, when you find yourself with down time, don't bother trying to simply lay back and enjoy it (you won't) but keep something extra on the burner to take up the slack and keep you from spinning your wheels pointlessly. When you've got such an energy resource in each other, why waste it?
MARS sextile JUPITER
An expansive energy pervades your relationship which will go a long way to bring you growth and good fortune both internally and externally. Whenever you get involved in something new, you get on an energy high that enables you to push your intentions to their logical conclusions. There is a reservoir of optimism and enthusiasm that in itself leads to good fortune, because others see you as the happening thing and climb aboard, providing the support and assistance you need to bring it on home...Whether this is love, or strictly business, it will be a pleasure doing it with each other and it will also be enjoyable to be in the vicinity when it's happening. If there is a warning, it will be to make sure you have the backup to secure what you have already accomplished before you follow the call to move on.
