One of the mixed blessings of a composite chart is that it can repeat certain natal aspects of the partners. If those aspects are positive, it’s a clear bonus, because the energy is amplified in the relationship. But if those aspects are challenging, the couple can find themselves dealing with an intensified version of their own self-destructive habits or blind spots. If one or both have not dealt with their issues, these can become fault lines. On the plus side, this allows them to confront their issues, because the partnership makes it unavoidable.
One Partner’s Issues Become Both Partners’ Issues
When the natal aspect of one partner is echoed in the composite chart, the couple is strongly impacted by that area of the relationship, for better or worse. For example, Mr. Saturn has a natal Moon/Saturn conjunction. Emotionally, he is cautious and defensive, but also prepared to offer 110% commitment. That Moon/Saturn conjunction is repeated in the composite chart, albeit in a different sign. Even if the composite conjunction does not aspect Mr. Saturn’s natal conjunction, he still resonates with the relationship’s emotional restraint. He feels some level of comfort, because’s Saturn’s limits around the Moon’s emotional expression is familiar to him. But, the composite Moon/Saturn conjunction can also exacerbate his tendency to shut down when he feels unsafe.
