    John Lennon & Paul McCartney: Part I

    The composite Sun, like the Sun in a natal chart, is the heart of the relationship and its primary drive and focus. The sign in which it falls will color the entire relationship, as many of the important events in the relationship will occur when transiting bodies are in this sign...The Sun's primary quality is restorative drive, the general impetus toward life and its sustenance, rather than any specific traits or areas of endeavor such as are represented by the planets. Therefore its placement will tell the overall thrust and style of the relationship and how well it bears up under fire, rather than give the details of just how it will do so...It is the driving engine of the relationship and everything else orbits around it and derives life from its energy.

    SUN in LEO
    Barring any undue affliction elsewhere, this can be one of the most expansive, creative, fun-loving relationships. It has warmth, breadth, and depth, though others may find it a trifle hard to keep up with at times. When either partner is at a loss for energy or inspiration, the partnership itself will be the well at which to refill with the waters of life. Conversely, however, nobody can party all the time and so you both may need a respite. This is the kind of relationship to which others look for leadership - if you're having such a good time, you must know what you're doing! It will be important to receive such attention with genuine modesty, because you may have it right. But you may also not have analyzed exactly how you do it and would be put into a bind if put on the spot. This relationship is likely to have good staying power and will rebound from the collisions of everyday life. Where you may have to step outside of the relationship, you have to play second fiddle to others, as the nature of this relationship is playing it your way, and you will be less happy and less effective doing it otherwise.

    The Composite Moon
    The symbolism of the composite Moon in a relationship is that of reflection - not in the sense of intellectual deliberation or thoughtful rumination but much more literally, reflective like a mirror. Whereas the Sun represents the primal, outgoing energy in the relationship, the Moon shows how the relationship reacts to situations once they have been presented to it... how you feel about a situation, the process and style in which your emotions are stirred. The things to which you react include each other, so the position of the composite Moon will be critical to the emotional well-being and functionality of the relationship, independent of your individual natures... This accounts for a lot of the "magic" - both good and bad - that is associated with relationships...In tandem with the Sun, the Moon and its position will make or break most relationships. If the Sun and Moon are well-placed and well- aspected, the relationship is anything from a good bet to a sure thing, regardless of the other positions and problems that need to be worked out. If the Sun and Moon are badly positioned or afflicted, it will be an uphill fight all the way, and one that either or both of you may choose to set aside unless you feel compelled to spend a great deal of time, energy, andemotion rising to the challenge. Life is about choices, and here especially the composite chart can help supply the data you need to aid you in your selection.

    This relationship has great potential power and intensity, but it is mixed with a special type of reserve and reticence that requires understanding in order for it to live up to its emotional potential. Above all, the way in which you react to situations is a mainstay of your power over others and each other, which makes it an area of great concern and of possible insecurity. Because you feel that much is at stake in the way you respond, you may withhold communication or commitment in order to play for a better position. This only serves to isolate and to build up emotion that needs a free channel to flow through, so you may be well-advised to be a little freer and be willing to take risks. Once cemented, however, your relationship will likely be long-lasting and deep, akin to comrades who have endured many battles together. In this respect, you will feel a passionate comradeship that in...everyday affairs produces do-or-die loyalty akin to none other. No danger is greater than that of betrayal, real or perceived, and the memory of such can linger on forever and poison a relationship or your mutual relationships with others. It is a good idea to remember that we all betray each other's trust at some time because of our innate human frailty and your greatest challenge will be to sort this out and be forgiving at every possible turn. By doing so, you allow yourselves, without remorse, to plumb ever deeper the still waters of your beings, hand in hand.

    Mercury in the composite chart represents the mutual meeting of minds, or lack of it, between you. It also represents your ability to communicate to others as a couple or as individuals. In the first instance, in which the position symbolizes the shore between two intellects, it will be important to know what kind of communication goes on: by style, substance, and action (sign, house, and aspect)...Its placement also describes how you communicate as a duo with the public at large, so herein lies further opportunities for good or ill...Nevertheless, knowing the situation in advance can help enormously, as you won't have to learn the communications value of the relationship by trial and error or blame each other for problems that arise from what is essentially a third party with its own horoscope, the relationship itself. Rather, you can take advantage of the best that it offers and avoid what looks like trouble by one or both of you pulling back on your own to handle problems the relationship does not cope with well.

    You may find that spacious and optimistic thinking is a notable trait of this relationship, a kind of infectious cheer that can carry others along with you. That's a pretty good characteristic, but you should be careful that your optimism is justified, particularly if you intend to bank on it later. That's even more important if you're going to be influencing others in the same direction. Whatever the situation, you will likely be able to put an upward-looking spin on your view of things, perhaps more so than you might do individually, so the relationship can make you feel up when you are down and let you share the brighter side of things, even when you think there isn't one. The only things you are likely to neglect in your communications skills are the nitty-gritty details; the little touches that make the deal airtight or give a conversation a specific personal touch. You may have to make a special effort to do that individually, should the details get lost in the shuffle when you are together with your sights set on broader, more general goals...

    The planet Venus represents desire, attraction, what you physically and emotionally desire and as a composite position describes where your desires meet and either blend or conflict, or a bit of both. This is too often applied to love interests alone, although it covers them as well. It means everything you desire - money, position, beautiful things, property, friends, lovers, anything that you want and believe if you get it, will make you happy. It also has another side which is your ability to appear to provide just such fulfillment for others, thus symbolizing personal charm, beauty, attractiveness, wealth, and so on. It's the two-way wish fulfillment point where dreams are born. When this is viewed between two people as a composite point, it means how and whether you make each other's dreams, on a very basic level, come true...It is, of course, critical in telling how a sexual relationship will unfold and can spell repeated ecstasy or constant frustration, especially taken in tandem with composite Mars. It also represents how well the relationship as a whole will be able to realize its goals and desires, which will of course be directly connected with its ability to make itself desirable, both of which are described by this composite point. Thus, an afflicted composite Venus is a double indemnity, because it usually prevents either of you from getting what you want out of each other, and it means the relationship will not get what it wants, either. Conversely, a well-aspected composite Venus is like a gift from above, as it means mutual success and satisfaction all around. In judging the overall success of a relationship, this is indeed a very important position.

    This is a very steamy position for Venus and will make you get very emotionally wrapped up in getting what you want and thus will heighten the level of everything from spiritual longing to physical lust. Realizing your desires, will provide tremendous interior release. Part of the reason for some delays or disappointments may be in a certain inability to communicate to others or each other exactly what it is you desire, thus making it difficult to bring to fulfillment. Together you have a high level of sensitivity that makes up-front dealing with desires painful, but if you don't express yourselves, no one is going to know how to give you what you want, so bite the bullet and say it out loud; you just might get it! Probably the best approach is to let it out completely or hide it so thoroughly that no one knows it's there and you get it by subterfuge. The middle ground, obvious but unexpressed desire, makes people uncomfortable and will seldom get you your way. This is because of its steam-pressure feeling, which lends a very dramatic sort of attraction to the relationship, somewhat similar to that found in soap operas: a seductive edge where there is little said, but much urgency and a great deal implied.

    Mars represents physical and emotional energy, and as such the ability and inclination to get things done, to fulfill desire by taking action. By itself it is really just raw energy, and its placement, particularly in relation to the other bodies in the chart, describes where and how well this energy will be directed. As a composite point, it describes how your two energy directions mesh and whether they will reinforce each other or simply get in each other's way. It will tell whether sparks will fly, igniting random and destructive brush fires, or whether a controlled fire will blossom that will become the engine to power and fulfill your desires under your own direction. Its relationship to Venus, particularly in sexual relationships, is critical, as it will describe whether it will fulfill or deny your sexual needs. In both male and female it describes sexual drive as well as assertiveness and ultimately, aggression...As with Venus, this can be the greatest natural blessing or a terrible stumbling block...It will also portray the power potential of the relationship as it exists in the outside world...None of this suggests that a difficult Mars means you should forget about the relationship, however, as if one of you is simply put in charge in certain areas, mutually compartmentalizing the energy flow; the ill effect can be largely disenabled, albeit at the price of local inequality. It is something to be considered with care and attention, however, as herein lies much of your self-empowerment and control over your lives.

    Your joint ability to hit the nail on the head is characteristic of this relationship, and you will find that no job is too refined for you to accomplish together. You know what needs to be done, and you do it. You can be, for this very reason, too demanding on yourselves, and perfectionism sometimes turns into a revolving door where nothing is ever quite perfect. This applies to the way you treat each other as well as the tasks you address, so don't get too swept up in it. This talent for specifics can be a special blessing where one or both of you is better at seeing the forest than the trees. This way when you get together each tree gets attended to and the whole operation is a success...

    Jupiter in any chart represents the capacity for growth and expansion in relation to whatever it is connected. It means bigger, better, newer, faster, higher, and more developed. It is usually looked at only in the positive aspect, but it also has the potential to get out of hand if not checked and directed. The composite chart is the area that your mutual aspiration and inventiveness meet, a point where creativity is strong but which may or may not bring its potentials to fruition, depending upon its placement and how you handle it...Jupiter usually does more good than harm and under most conditions it is the place to look for blessings...It will show you where the big picture is and provide the kind of life overview which the relationship teaches that you might not have discovered on your own. It can be the force that carries you both away with each other and raises you to heights you didn't know you had. Its only danger is allowing the relationship to take over you as individuals. Use it as a resource for each of you to draw on, not the other way round, and it will always pay off for you.

    Growth styles differ; some things grow like the trunk of a tree: slow and solid. This style of growth could probably best be compared to leaves and branches: multiple, supple, relatively swiftly-changing, interdependent but able to stand alone when necessary. Thus you will find that major developments in your relationship are likely to take a variety of different manifestations, showing a general direction but not holding to a single pattern and building a more flexible structure that is open to change and adaptation when the wind alters direction. This may make you wonder if you are really committed to the new directions you adopt, but it is not a matter of lack of strength but the understanding of placement. You don't put all your new eggs in one basket, but you keep them near enough to each other to reassign when you need to. This might not have been the way either of you were accustomed to doing things, but you'll likely find it the most useful style to adopt when together. You will also have need to wait for the finished product before you can really judge whether your plans have entirely worked out, just as you can't judge a tree's growth until its leaves and blossoms have fully developed. This applies inside and out, so that you develop together gently, lightly exploring the possibilities of where you'd like to go until, voila, there you are, in full bloom!
