Title: Contemplating a Composite Chart
Post by: cat777 on Sep 10, 2011, 08:56 PM
Contemplating a Composite Chart (my first).  I'm finding it quite interesting and have a few questions and also would not mind anyones input on it in regard to the questions or anything that I may be missing but stands out to you :-)

Composite Chart.  The two are at least individuated, one possibly spiritual state. They have not known each other long enough to have any problems with each other yet.  They both felt an instant attraction to each other and seem to share a very psychic bond and seem to be able to communicate on that level.  Or maybe they are just delusional (?).

Pluto is in Virgo in the 12th House conjunct the NN.  This indicates that Pluto's Polarity Point does not apply as the focus has been, and continues to be on Pluto's intention and desire described by Pluto in Virgo in the 12th House.  Mars however is in Pisces in the 6th House.  So, although the couple is working to transform the archetypes symbolized by Pluto in Virgo in the 12th House, the couple's instinctual desires to accomplish this are essentially through Pluto's Polarity Point.  In addition to all of this, Mars is Conjunct the SN in Pisces in the 6th House.

So, what does this mean?  Does it mean that although the past live wounds/issues described by Pluto in Virgo in the 12th House are the primary focus in this life (as in the past) the couple is instinctually trying to heal those wounds or resolve their past life issues through the polarity point regardless, and have attempted this in the past as well?

Pluto in the 12th House indicates a desire to help each other while the polarity point indicates that this can be a disservice as each needs to learn to help themselves.  But, maybe they still need to help each other rather than letting each other help themselves?  Or maybe they go to extremes with this and the message is a need for balance in regard to helping each other or allowing each other to help themselves?  

Or maybe the time has come to let go of one another and that is why the focus is on Pluto in the 12th House as the Polarity point would be an intention and desire to keep working together?  But then with Mars in the poloarity point, they don't desire that as individuals in this life?  

Or maybe it's just too early to tell as they have not been together long enough and I haven't looked at all the aspects and other planets yet?  :-)

There is actually a lot of this polarity type of thing going on here as far as the karmic axis goes.  Besides the Virgo/Pisces, 6th House/12th House polarities, the NNR is Mercury in Sagittarius in the 3rd House and the SNR is Neptune in Scorpio in the 2nd House.  

And one other interesting point, from a synastry perspective, each of their North Nodes is conjunct the other's SN.  I was reading an old post in which Steve said something like:
“This a nodal opposition.  One person is going where the other person habitually comes from.  Each  person is literally a mirror for the other.  It's not easy to live with.  If both can recognize what is going on and learn to embrace it, the potential for a lot of growth is high.  It will take a commitment to understanding why they are together, and to stick through it.  The opposition also makes mutual projections an ongoing issue, as disowned shadow parts of each one are acted out by the other.  Truly "in your face".”

After posting this I somehow discovered the word "paradox" and just finished reading alot of past posts regarding paradoxes, which help clarify a lot of this in my mind  :-)

Hi Cat,

You may have noticed that there is a very long thread concerning composite and synastry charts. In that thread, as well as in JWG'S 2nd Pluto book on relationships, that to understand the composite chart is to understand each individuals chart first, then their synastry charts together and then, and only then, the composite chart. You can not extract a few symbols from the composite chart, as you are doing here, and expect to know what the answers are, or what the symbols even mean. There must be a total understanding of each person, and their synastry together, before the symbols in the composite chart can be understood correctly.

God Bless, Rad

Hi Rad,

Thank you.  You are so right and I did realize that mistake after posting this and starting to read the John & Yoko thread from the very beginning last night.  I have been totally focused on natal charts and decided to take a stab at something different as I am trying to broaden my understanding of archetypes and thought looking at something different might be useful.  I think I'll just back up :-) 

But, even though I went about this wrong, it was a good thing as it took me down the "paradox" road  :-)  Now I'll go back to natal charts and study natal charts that contain paradoxes as that seems to be a theme I need to explore. 

Thanks for reminding me where I need to be  :-)
