Thank you Steve for pointing that out.
Yes Patricia! I have found similar, very direct correlations. Really amazing stuff to observe.
The best way I have found to use progressions in composite charts it to do the current progressions for each person in the relationship, and then to make a composite chart based on those progressions. You can then relate that progressed composite to the natal composite of the relationship in question. And, of course, transiting planets to the composite work.
That's really interesting, I'm going to sit with that. It seems that the composite chart of the two progressed charts signify the progression of the relationship from the point of view of each soul's individual progression. That feels intuitive to me.
One thing that JWG used to teach too, although nothing in print on it, is that you can take the natal planets of each person in the relationship and then apply them to the composite chart of the couple. In other words a bi-wheel where the composite is the center chart, and the individual planets of each person can be put on the outer ring. This, according to JWG, then symbolized how each person in their relationship is 'relating' to the fact of their unique 'coupleness': the composite. This is different than standard synastry charts that symbolize how each person relates to the other as individuals. This is about how each is relating to the coupleness itself. Very few astrologers know of this. Yet, when applied, it is a real eye opener.
Thanks for sharing this Rad. I'm thinking of a couple composite/natal charts right now and I can see very clearly how this principal plays out. I now see that we can take a composite chart in the inner wheel and put another chart (that wasn't one of the 2 charts that created the composite chart in the first place), in the outer wheel and the same principal would hold true. An example of this would be two parents (composite chart- inner wheel) and their child (natal chart- outer wheel).
