Aspects of the Sun / Sun Synastry
The sun is the core of our being and identity, so harmonious aspects between the synastria of the sun are usually straightforward. You’re basically both on the same page. You will not challenge the other’s ego. You are so comfortable with the other person that you support one another by just being who you are.
Even the opposition is not bad because there is a nice magnetic feeling that attracts opposites. You feel like you are complimenting each other, that you are one together. The place is the most difficult, but it’s still a connection, so it’s compelling and dynamic. Queen Victoria and Prince Albert had this, it’s more like that “I met my match”. The ego will get a beating, but they will shape each other.
Moon / lunar synastry aspects
The moon is our habits and our autopilot of how we instinctively react. We want to be cared for and cuddled with the moon. Hence, it is preferable that the moon be harmonious in synastry if we want our relationship to feel like a comfortable pair of slippers.
Domestic workers are more likely to come up with difficult aspects and even conjunction, as the sensitivity that comes with the moon may rub a little too close to the bone when those of the moon are on top of each other. Either that or it could be a little too symbiotic and blending into one another so that you don’t know where one ends and the other begins as if you were still in the womb.
Aspects of the Sun / Moon Synastry
This is the classic indicator of marriage simply because it is what marriage is about. The balance of day and night keeps the earth fertile. Ying and Yang, male and female, partnership and balance. Fertility and growth are the foundation of a successful relationship.
Even if you don’t have children together, you want your soul to thrive and be materially comfortable. Harmonious aspects facilitate this fertility. The opposition creates a sexy polarity. Space will hinder growth, but growth can become more permanent because it has forced you to build more resilience. Victoria & Albert had this again.
Aspects of the Sun / Moon / Ascendant Synastry
The ascendant / descendant is the relationship axis, it is in work, it describes our journey through life and how we adapt when we are confronted with people and new experiences. The Ascendant is the vehicle of the soul, while the lights (sun and moon) are the drivers. The sun would drive more consciously and purposefully, while the moon would be more autopilot and flow with the river.
A personable relationship between the sun or moon and the ascendant means that you will all want to go in the same direction. For this reason, the two of you should achieve more together, get things done quickly and as stress-free as possible, since you won’t fight over the steering wheel. Horse and rider are one. There is a sense of “We against the world.”
Aspects of the Venus / Mars synastry
Of course, sex is important to most people in a relationship, so keeping your eye on Venus and Mars is preferable. It really doesn’t matter if the aspect is hard or soft, maybe even in the bedroom … These two compounds more or less guarantee a sexual chemistry that doesn’t subside too much after the initial arousal has subsided.
The hard aspects seem to make it stronger and more exciting. Linked to this is the potential for more aggression and a libido battle when one partner so desires and the other is not in the mood. The magical Venus / Mars aspect alone is not enough to keep a couple together. But you certainly need this sexual aspect or another if you’re looking to zing in the long term.
Aspects of the Synastry of the North Node
The north knot in synastry is hugely important because it shows where our soul must go in order to develop. It is very nice to see this trait in the synastry between a couple because it shows that they are helping one another on the same spiritual path. The North Node Conjunct Vertex is one of the top indicators of marriage.
Other than the vertex, the Luminaries, Ascendant, Venus or Mars that connect the North Node will be a winner because your relationship is in line with the evolution of your souls. Square to the knots is far more challenging and more likely that it is a karmic contractual relationship where excess baggage blocks you both and has to be resolved once and for all.
