SOLAR FIRE INTERPRETATIONS REPORT

 

Solar Fire Synastry Interpretations

 

(c) 2000, Esoteric Technologies Pty Ltd

 

This report has been written to introduce you to the concepts of astrology and how to get started in relationship astrology. Astrology is a complex and meaningful science which takes years to study and apply successfully; however, we would like to whet your appetite with this report, and encourage you to deepen your understanding through other means.

Astrology is a study of the connection between planets and life on Earth. It is based on a concept that energy patterns form between other planets and Earth and that these energies affect our lives as individuals and communities.

An astrological chart, also known as a horoscope, natal chart, or birth chart, records the relationship between the planets and the signs of the Zodiac. Charts can be calculated for the birth of a person, a community, an event or anything that seems momentous. The horoscope is as individual and unique as a fingerprint.

When using these interpretations, please bear in mind that, inevitably, every chart will contain some contradictory influences, and as a result certain interpretations of different items in the same chart may seem difficult to reconcile. However, this may still be an accurate reflection your chart, as it is likely that you do experience conflicting desires, events and circumstances in your life. Usually it is the responsibility of an astrologer to synthesise these apparent contradictions in order to present a cohesive and realistic interpretation of the dilemmas of the chart.

Please also be aware of the fact that each person has positive and negative influences in the chart, and therefore in their lives. The challenge is to accept and overcome the negative influences, so that we can successfully focus on the positive traits. This report outlines the influence of both people's charts on each other. This is called relationship synastry meaning the comparison of two horoscopes and the correlations discovered. It is likely that the report will show both the strengths and weaknesses of the relationship synastry. Any advice given is meant to be an aid to a person taking responsibility for their own lives and their own choices within a relationship. The ultimate decision rests with each individual. The author and publisher accept no liability for any adverse affects of this report.

ASPECTS FROM PAUL NEWMAN TO JOANNE WOODWARD

 

 

Paul's Moon Conjunction Joanne's Moon

Orb 751' Applying

The Moon is considered one of the personal planets in relationship astrology. A positive combination of personal planets is believed to augur well for intimate unions. Therefore this is an ideal combination for a close, personal relationship whether it is a close friendship or love relationship. Emotional bonds are important in personal relationships and when two people's Moons are in a positive aspect there is a feeling of empathy and understanding which is required for intimacy. Paul and Joanne can relax in the knowledge that they are compatible on an emotional level. Instinctively they feel comfortable in each other's company. They know how each other feels and are willing to consider their loved one's feelings along with their own. Paul ands Joanne enjoy spending time in each other's company because intuitively they understand each other. At times they may feel surprised at the ease with which they both are able to spend time together. Of course all relationships undergo times of strain and tension. However, in times of anxiety Paul and Joanne both seek solace in the same manner thereby reducing the possibility of extra tensions resulting through misunderstandings. In fact simply being together comforts them. This is a most rewarding personal relationship.

 

Paul's Moon Conjunction Joanne's Mercury

Orb 243' Separating

This is an ideal combination for a personal relationship in which two people enjoy ease of communication. Paul and Joanne enjoy each other's company because they are able to communicate comfortably. They enjoy discussions and are not concerned about arguments. Many personal relationships fail simply because two people are unable to communicate both their thoughts and feelings. The synastry of these two planets means that Paul and Joanne are able to tell each other not only what they are thinking, but also how they are feeling. They are able to do so in a manner that is not threatening or hurtful to each other. Therefore Paul and Joanne are both safe in the knowledge that they are not going to overreact, trampling on each other's feelings. Likewise Paul and Joanne are easily able to acknowledge the value of the each other's thoughts and feelings. At times Paul and Joanne may even feel they are telepathic together, seemingly not needing words to communicate but understanding each other's unspoken thoughts. Together Paul and Joanne are able to take a balanced approach combining passion and reason. They have an understanding and rapport that enables them to clarify their own thoughts and feelings. Paul is likely to be the more intuitive of the two, while Joanne is likely to rely more on the intellect when communicating.

 

Paul's Moon Conjunction Joanne's Mars

Orb 100' Separating

This combination of planets denotes a relationship that is exciting and animated. Paul and Joanne's discussions are lively and impassioned and their shared pastimes are also likely to be energetic and fun. Paul and Joanne enjoy spontaneity and both tend to be impulsive when together. Both of them feel that their lives have become more effervescent with the advent of this relationship. Paul is most likely to feel that Joanne brings excitement into his life. Paul is aware that Joanne's drive and energy contributes positively to his life. Whereas Joanne feels inspired by the relationship to achieve her goals. Joanne acknowledges that Paul's support and understanding is helping her to advance in life. There is also likely to be a strong sexual attraction that helps to add a little spice to life. However, this sexual attraction is most powerful when both Paul and Joanne are feeling comfortable within the association. The attraction can lose its spark when there is emotional tension. Fortunately, this does not happen often. Paul and Joanne are mostly able to resolve their differences and enjoy an enlivened and satisfying union.

 

Paul's Moon Quincunx Joanne's Pluto

Orb 038' Applying

This is an intense and powerful relationship. Paul and Joanne feel a strong attraction to each other, one that seems to unconsciously draw them together. Paul's and Joanne's deep feelings for each other need to be nurtured in a loving manner in order for the union to be long lasting. However, this can be quite difficult for Paul and Joanne to achieve. It's not that they don't love each other, because they do care very deeply. The problem is that at times their intense emotions seem to erupt from nowhere. In fact the feelings have been simmering under the surface ready to be expressed at any moment. The pressure builds up quickly between Paul and Joanne and before they know it they are embroiled in an emotional drama. Of course this can vary, depending on how Paul and Joanne handle intense feelings. Some individuals thrive on intensity, while others feel threatened and powerless. Paul is likely to feel that his life has been transformed in some way by Joanne. It's possible that Joanne has changed the way that Paul feels about the world, making him conscious of things that have been bubbling under the surface for a long time. Life is not the same for Paul once he encounters Joanne. He may feel powerless, overwhelmed by Joanne's volatile nature. The key is for Paul is able to see through the explosive behaviour to the true heart of Joanne and to nurture Joanne's goodness. As a result Joanne will deeply appreciate the emotional support offered by Paul. If this does not occur then it is likely that Joanne will feel angry about the constant demands being placed on her by Paul. Joanne will start to withdraw and become isolated, only initiating contact in the relationship when she feels at boiling point. The challenge for Joanne is to maintain a loving attitude and to give Paul time to learn his emotional lessons. This is indeed a passionate personal union and one that needs to be loving, otherwise there is a danger of abuse. This combination can also signify a secret love affair in which intense feelings are indeed in the background. It can also depict an intense working relationship in which power struggles abound, but it is more likely to point to a personal union.

 

 

 

 

Paul's Sun Trine Joanne's Jupiter

Orb 232' Applying

The Sun and the favourable planet Jupiter are combining suggesting that this relationship is blessed with good fortune and happiness. It is an ideal combination for an intimate relationship such as marriage because it indicates shared philosophies on life and the ability to grow together. Together Paul and Joanne land on their feet no matter how difficult a situation. They seem destined to be in the right place at the right time. Paul and Joanne enjoy each other's company, feeling all of the benefits that come with this union. Their optimism and enthusiasm are infectious, and as a couple they are popular. In particular Paul shines as a result of his association with Joanne. Paul feels able to embrace life and all it has to offer. He is aware that his union with Joanne is truly blessed and that it helps him to achieve his full potential. Joanne knows that her horizons are continually expanding through her association with Paul. Joanne feels able to conquer the world. In fact it is likely that both Paul and Joanne enjoy travelling, studying or teaching together. They enjoy sharing anything that expands their minds and contributes positively to their lives.

 

 

 

 

Paul's Mercury Semisquare Joanne's Moon

Orb 209' Applying

Arguments can cause upset feelings in a relationship with this combination of planets. All types of associations can suffer some setbacks under this influence, but personal relationships are particularly fraught with difficulties. Friction seems to result no matter how Joanne and Paul try to approach each other on intimate matters. Joanne and Paul's relationship suffers because of unspoken problems, or perhaps either Joanne or Paul speaks their mind too often. Either way the problem is communication. No matter how hard both Joanne and Paul try they cannot seem to understand each other's way of seeing things and how each other feels. Joanne communicates on an intuitive or feeling level whereas Paul is the more rational thinker. As a result Joanne and Paul alternate between passion and rationality, having difficulty understanding the other person. Joanne and Paul's behaviour seems at odds with their needs, and they do not seem to be able to comfortably settle down in the relationship. On a more positive note Joanne and Paul may not mind a little friction in their intimate relationship. However, it's more likely that Joanne and Paul would both do well to work on their communication skills. As a result Joanne and Paul can develop skills which help to overcome the problems enabling them to better understand each other.

 

Paul's Mercury Sextile Joanne's Venus

Orb 103' Applying

The combination of the personal planets of Mercury and Venus is a desirable one for an intimate union, and certainly advantageous to any association which requires harmony and collaboration. Paul and Joanne enjoy each other's company, finding it easy to co-operate and share their experiences. They are compatible. Conversation has an easy flow and pastimes are fun, free of the restraints that sometimes hamper clear communication. Paul and Joanne share an appreciation of the arts, perhaps even partaking in a joint creative or artistic activity. Discussions are harmonious because Paul and Joanne are so often in agreement, including money. They concur on how money is saved and spent and enjoyed. Paul and Joanne value the intellectual stimulation provided by each other. Paul, in particular, experiences mental inspiration from his association with Joanne. Perhaps Joanne is Paul's muse in some form of the arts. Paul gains confidence in his opinions and ideas as a result of his relationship with Joanne. In return Joanne appreciates Paul's intellect. Joanne feels able to relax within this relationship knowing that Paul encourages rather than criticises her.

 

Paul's Mercury Conjunction Joanne's Saturn

Orb 222' Separating

This is an excellent combination for an enduring relationship. Both Paul and Joanne share a mutual respect for each other and are willing to work towards sound communication. They take each other seriously, and are likely to share an interest in a thought-provoking pastime or a business enterprise. Shared values also mean that this relationship has firm foundations for the long term. Paul and Joanne realise early in their association that this is a lasting union. Therefore it is likely that they slowly and surely get to know each other, rather than rushing headlong into a relationship. As a result they eventually form a strong bond. Paul respects and learns from Joanne's wisdom. He is better able to communicate his own thoughts and ideas thanks to Joanne's well-received advice. Joanne's organisational abilities shine in this relationship. She discovers different methods of approaching activities through her association with Paul.

 

Paul's Mercury Square Joanne's Uranus

Orb 232' Separating

A lively and unpredictable relationship is the result of this combination of planets. Paul and Joanne enjoy the meeting of two minds and the sense of freedom that they experience in each other's company. At first they both enjoy the tension that crackles between them, but this soon becomes irritating. The problem is that there is no peace to be experienced in this relationship. The constant tension of two people having different ideas is a challenge. What seemed like a meeting of two minds soon becomes a clashing of two minds. Another obstacle to a close bond is a lack of commitment. As the relationship develops Paul and Joanne realise that it is difficult for them to predict the outcome of their union. In particular Paul experiences discomfort because of Joanne's unreliability. Even if Joanne is usually a reliable person, she seems unable to be constant in her association with Paul. This is a difficult combination for a personal relationship, although it can work depending on other aspects of the relationship. It is difficult to find a balance in a friendship or work association.

 

Paul's Mercury Opposition Joanne's Pluto

Orb 537' Applying

This is a potentially explosive combination of the planets Mercury and Pluto, with communication playing a key role. The problem is that this combination indicates a battle of two minds. Both Paul and Joanne discover that they trigger forceful emotions and thoughts in each other. At times the intensity becomes overwhelming and they don't know what to do. It is vital that both Paul and Joanne communicate honestly, keeping all emotions and thoughts out in the open as much as is possible. Otherwise their relationship is likely to become volcanic, possibly even abusive as they battle to make themselves understood. They both find it near impossible to simply let matters slide, feeling that they must tackle each other head on. This works well if both Paul and Joanne are able to enjoy penetrating and honest discussions. However, if they don't then one of them, probably Paul, is likely to suffer. Positively this relationship is transformative. Negatively it is abusive. The nature of the union depends on Paul and Joanne's personalities and other aspects of their association.

 

Paul's Mercury Conjunction Joanne's Ascendant

Orb 011' Separating

It is significant in relationship astrology when one person's planet makes contact with the Ascendant in another person's chart. In this case Paul's Mercury is combining with Joanne's Ascendant indicating that communication plays a key role in this relationship. Whether it is a love union, a friendship, relative or work association, this partnership thrives on honest and open communication. Paul places more emphasis on keeping spoken and written exchanges flowing. However, Joanne also appreciates the manner in which this relationship enables her to share information and learn through interaction. This is a positive and lively relationship in which both Paul and Joanne enjoy each other's company.

 

 

 

 

Paul's Venus Sextile Joanne's Venus

Orb 005' Applying

This is an ideal combination for a love relationship, providing the spark for an instant attraction. Ancient astrologers considered the planet Venus to have most beneficial effects and this could be seen clearly in relationship astrology. Both Paul and Joanne are attracted to each other, seeing the very best of himself or herself reflected in the other person. They enjoy each other's company, making the most of their joint interests. Paul and Joanne are likely to enjoy various pleasurable outings ranging from alfresco meals to visits to the theatre. As long as they are together they are happy. Paul and Joanne are in agreement on how their relationship should be approached e.g. the blend of freedom and closeness, intellect and emotion, personal time and social activities to name a few. This combination is most ideal for a long-lasting love relationship, indicating many years of happiness. It is also beneficial for a friendship in which both people can enjoy each other's company. Even so the friends need to respect other people's rights, otherwise there is a temptation for them to act like lovers when they are not, thus alienating their partners and other friends.

 

Paul's Venus Conjunction Joanne's Saturn

Orb 330' Separating

The planet Saturn is an important ingredient in any committed relationship. This sombre planet can take away some of the short-term excitement of any union, but on a positive note it adds commitment and security needed for a long-term association. In other words Paul and Joanne take this relationship seriously. They are devoted to each other and joyful in making promises that they are both able to keep. From the start of their association they enjoy taking their time getting to know each other, experiencing stability and understanding that grows slowly over time. They genuinely love each other and want to work towards a strong partnership. At times Paul would like more fun and spontaneity, but he appreciates Joanne's wisdom in slowing things down in order to build a lasting union. Mutual respect is a central theme to this union. There is also a strong feeling of fate in this relationship. Paul and Joanne may tell a story of how destiny meant for them to be together. While this combination of planets indicates a serious personal relationship, it can also be a positive influence on a partnership formed for the purpose of an artistic or creative project requiring both inspiration and hard work.

 

Paul's Venus Square Joanne's Uranus

Orb 340' Separating

This combination of planets indicates an instant and vital magnetism. It is the type of attraction in which Paul and Joanne take one look at each other across a crowded room and feel the sparks. Romance is alight and the relationship develops at a rapid rate. Friends are amazed as the couple's union becomes more and more intense. However, it is likely that Paul and Joanne have trouble maintaining the excitement in the long term. As the relationship develops the attraction turns to irritation as the passion wears off. In particular Paul feels that his love is being rejected as other interests and pursuits distract Joanne. At times it is difficult for Joanne to maintain her involvement in this relationship without becoming distracted by other creative interests. These may be scientific, astrological, environmental, technological or political. If other aspects of this relationship do indicate a strong bond, it is likely that Paul and Joanne experience friction in areas such as finances, personal hobbies, home comforts and friendships. The challenge for both Paul and Joanne is to find a balance between freedom and intimacy that suits both of them. If this can't be achieved then it is likely that the relationship fails.

 

Paul's Venus Opposition Joanne's Pluto

Orb 429' Applying

This is a powerful combination of planets indicating a strong bond, whether in a friendship, love union or work association. Paul and Joanne experience a compelling attraction to each other, one that easily becomes passionate and intense. Depending on the nature of the relationship, Paul and Joanne could easily end up in bed together. Positively they are transformed by this relationship, becoming more influential and powerful in their own lives, even if initially they have to overcome moments of feeling powerless. However, they also experience intense emotional battles as the passionate nature of the union becomes difficult to control. If Paul and Joanne are in a romantic liaison, these emotional struggles can overflow into the bedroom adversely affecting sexual relations. It is also possible that this combination of planets indicates a love affair that is intense and fraught with emotional problems. While both Paul and Joanne experience the tension, Paul feels more overwhelmed. He may even feel bullied by the strong personality of Joanne. Paul finds it difficult to live his life effectively while in this relationship. Joanne struggles to understand Paul and becomes impatient, wanting him to be more assertive. Joanne doesn't realise how domineering she appears to be. The challenge for both Paul and Joanne is to direct their passion in a positive direction, possibly a shared artistic or creative pursuit.

 

Paul's Venus Conjunction Joanne's Ascendant

Orb 119' Separating

It is significant in relationship astrology when one person's planet makes contact with the Ascendant in another person's chart. In this case Paul's Venus is combining with Joanne's Ascendant indicating that this is a significant personal relationship. Paul and Joanne feel strongly drawn to each other, experiencing a sense of completeness in each other's company. Paul is in love with Joanne, wanting to enjoy pleasurable activities and intimate moments. He appreciates the benefits that this union brings into his life. This relationship brings a wealth of benefits for Paul. In turn Joanne has a greater sense of well-being through her association with Paul. She appreciates Paul's love of intimacy and his attitude to this union. Together they share a mutual respect and affection. While this combination is most likely to indicate an intimate love union, it can also augur well for friendships, family relationship and work associations.

 

 

 

 

Paul's Mars Sextile Joanne's Moon

Orb 153' Separating

This combination of planets denotes a relationship that is exciting and animated. Joanne and Paul's discussions are lively and impassioned and their shared pastimes are also likely to be energetic and fun. Joanne and Paul enjoy spontaneity and both tend to be impulsive when together. Both of them feel that their lives have become more effervescent with the advent of this relationship. Joanne is most likely to feel that Paul brings excitement into her life. Joanne is aware that Paul's drive and energy contributes positively to her life. Whereas Paul feels inspired by the relationship to achieve his goals. Paul acknowledges that Joanne's support and understanding is helping him to advance in life. There is also likely to be a strong sexual attraction that helps to add a little spice to life. However, this sexual attraction is most powerful when both Joanne and Paul are feeling comfortable within the association. The attraction can lose its spark when there is emotional tension. Fortunately, this does not happen often. Joanne and Paul are mostly able to resolve their differences and enjoy an enlivened and satisfying union.

 

Paul's Mars Semisquare Joanne's Sun

Orb 003' Separating

This is a relationship that begins with a fanfare and ends with a bang. This fiery combination of the Sun and the planet Mars is a difficult one. Any relationship with this combination is likely to be difficult to maintain unless there are other more positive connections. There is much excitement when Joanne and Paul first get together; an electric sexual energy pulsates between both of them. Both Joanne and Paul feel a rush of energy when in each other's company. However, this quickly becomes friction because Joanne and Paul are trying to head in different directions. Conflict is likely. The problem is that Joanne feels overpowered by the demands of Paul, and unable to positively express herself in this union. The frustration can build to the point where Joanne's attitude aggravates Paul. Joanne feels that her personality is squashed by Paul. Paul is frustrated by the demands of Joanne, feeling unable to pursue his goals. In the end the sexual attraction may fail to be enough to maintain a long-term intimate union. Depending on other connections in this relationship Joanne and Paul may finally decide to end their association. They may need to seek counsel on how to resolve conflict, which at times could be quite fiery.

 

Paul's Mars Semisquare Joanne's Jupiter

Orb 027' Separating

Paul and Joanne have difficulty maintaining equilibrium in this relationship. They both eagerly approach joint tasks. There is no lack of enthusiasm, only a lack of harmony. Problems arise at the start of any joint project because Paul and Joanne fail to agree on common goals. Once they have managed to agree on the goals, then they both have their own ideas about what is the best process of achieving those goals. They often seem to be heading in opposite directions. In fact they put their own independent desires first, rather than considering what is best for the bigger picture. Paul has a tendency to force Joanne to do things his way. At times Paul can be quite aggressive in his communication. Joanne believes that she knows best. The result is tension and arguments. The challenge is for both Paul and Joanne to learn to co-operate, each using their own talents while respecting the skills of the other person.

 

 

 

 

Paul's Jupiter Semisquare Joanne's Moon

Orb 114' Separating

Although there can be some difficulties with this combination, on the whole this is a positive combination. Joanne and Paul enjoy each other's company and feel a certain zest for life when together. Joanne and Paul share a need for fun-filled adventures and the capability of achieving their goals. They both feel that the world is their oyster which is ready to explore together. This can include holidays in far-away places, adventure travel and also encompasses any activity which expands their minds and views of life. This is a meeting of higher-minds. Joanne feels that Paul expands her horizons. Joanne feels safe and appreciated in this relationship. Paul knows that Joanne is a comrade in arms when it comes to fun and adventure. Paul knows that he is truly appreciated for his generosity and optimism. Together Joanne and Paul can conquer the world. Nothing seems too far-fetched. And this is where problems can lie. It is possible that neither Joanne nor Paul know when enough is enough. There is a saying that 'you can have too much of a good thing'. This is one of the underlying problems of this association. Joanne and Paul need to make sure that they do not become too grandiose in their dreams. Overinflated ideas of their capabilities are not helpful and can lead both Joanne and Paul into troubled waters. Another complication can arise if Joanne and Paul do not share the same values, because morals and beliefs play an important role in this relationship. However, if Joanne and Paul share the same beliefs and can exercise some restraint this can be a positive combination for a long-term relationship.

 

Paul's Jupiter Sextile Joanne's Sun

Orb 036' Applying

The Sun and the favourable planet Jupiter are combining suggesting that this relationship is blessed with good fortune and happiness. It is an ideal combination for an intimate relationship such as marriage because it indicates shared philosophies on life and the ability to grow together. Together Joanne and Paul land on their feet no matter how difficult a situation. They seem destined to be in the right place at the right time. Joanne and Paul enjoy each other's company, feeling all of the benefits that come with this union. Their optimism and enthusiasm are infectious, and as a couple they are popular. In particular Joanne shines as a result of her association with Paul. Joanne feels able to embrace life and all it has to offer. She is aware that her union with Paul is truly blessed and that it helps her to achieve her full potential. Paul knows that his horizons are continually expanding through his association with Joanne. Paul feels able to conquer the world. In fact it is likely that both Joanne and Paul enjoy travelling, studying or teaching together. They enjoy sharing anything that expands their minds and contributes positively to their lives.

 

Paul's Jupiter Quincunx Joanne's Jupiter

Orb 106' Separating

This association can bring joy to both Paul and Joanne, depending on the nature of other aspects of their relationship. If other aspects are positive then Paul and Joanne are likely to enjoy each other's company, giving and taking. Although they may hold opposite beliefs or find pleasure in different ways, they are tolerant of each other's differences. In fact they enjoy the stimulation of each other's differences. Ancient astrologers consider the planet Jupiter to be of beneficial affect in each person's life. Hence the mostly positive influence of this combination on Paul and Joanne's relationship. There is a chance that other tensions in their union adversely affect this beneficial influence. If this is the case then Paul and Joanne are more likely to have differences of opinion over values, beliefs and pastimes. These differences can be a source of tension rather than a source of joy.

 

Paul's Jupiter Conjunction Joanne's Saturn

Orb 101' Applying

A strong bond is formed as a result of this combination of the planets Jupiter and Saturn, in which both Paul and Joanne learn a great deal from each other. In many ways Paul and Joanne take an opposing approach to their relationship. Paul is more adventurous, keen to explore new territories. He takes a somewhat philosophical approach to this relationship. On the other hand Joanne is cautious, often taking a slower and more practical outlook. Fortunately they enjoy these opposing qualities, finding equilibrium in their relationship. Joanne finds her day enlivened by Paul's personality. In turn Paul enjoys having a stable and patient companion to bounce his ideas off. Joanne learns much from Paul's wisdom, gaining a greater understanding of her own nature. Together Paul and Joanne can achieve much success in either their personal lives or a joint project.

 

Paul's Jupiter Square Joanne's Uranus

Orb 051' Applying

This combination of the two planets Jupiter and Uranus indicates a meeting of two individual minds. In some associations it can be a case of "opposites attract". At the beginning of their relationship Paul and Joanne are attracted by the novelty of each other, but this quickly wears off. However, differences between Paul and Joanne are difficult to overcome. What follows is a discordant union. Their individual natures clash. What was once attractive becomes irritating and a cause of friction. Both Paul and Joanne find it awkward to allow each other the independence needed to pursue their individual interests. The end result for an intimate bond depends on other aspects of the relationship. However, this combination is a formidable one and could result in a love relationship breaking down unless Paul and Joanne find a way of following their independent paths within their association. A friendship or work association also needs to provide plenty of scope for individual expression.

 

Paul's Jupiter Conjunction Joanne's Ascendant

Orb 312' Applying

It is significant in relationship astrology when one person's planet makes contact with the Ascendant in another person's chart. In this case Paul's Jupiter is combining with Joanne's Ascendant indicating that this is a significant relationship. Paul and Joanne feel strongly drawn to each other, experiencing a sense of completeness in each other's company. Paul is enthusiastic about his relationship with Joanne. He enjoys exploring new territories with Joanne, perhaps even teaching Joanne new experiences. He appreciates the benefits that this union brings into his life. In turn Joanne has a greater sense of well-being through her association with Paul. She appreciates Paul's love of adventure and his attitude to this union. Together they share a mutual respect and affection. While this combination is most likely to indicate an intimate love union, it can also augur well for friendships, family relationship, teacher-student and work associations.

 

 

 

 

Paul's Saturn Trine Joanne's Sun

Orb 536' Applying

Many astrologers believe that a connection between the serious planet Saturn and a personal planet such as the Sun is important, providing the cement for a long-lasting relationship. In other words a serious planet is needed for a serious, meaningful union such as marriage. It is certainly true that the combination of the Sun and Saturn is found in many, meaningful relationships. However, the harmful planet Saturn can also cause problems. The extent of the problems varies according to the astrological aspect. Certainly this combination indicates that Joanne and Paul both view this as a serious association, whether it is a marriage, friendship or a working partnership. Both Joanne and Paul are committed to their association. It is likely that they experienced a strong attraction in the initial stages of their relationship, and it is likely to be long lasting. When Joanne and Paul first meet they each know they have discovered a potential serious relationship, one to which they can commit and build on over a lifetime. If they believe in reincarnation, then it is likely that they feel a karmic attraction, a moment of recognition when they first look into the other person's eyes. However, the very qualities, which they seriously considered as attractive in the initial stages of the relationship, can become the source of friction if they are not careful. In particular, Paul needs to be wary of becoming too critical and judgmental. Initially Paul found Joanne's personality traits to be worthy of a committed union. He admired Joanne's qualities as complementing his own. However, it is easy for Paul to forget this attraction. As the relationship develops he feels threatened by the force of Joanne's personality and takes a superior attitude in defence. As a result Joanne feels threatened, disliking the authoritarian side of Paul. If Joanne is not careful her self-confidence is whittled away and the relationship becomes onerous. It is vital that both Joanne and Paul work at developing a stable basis for communication and understanding in this relationship. If both Joanne and Paul work at maintaining their own self-confidence as well as mutual respect then they have the makings for a very successful marriage or working relationship. If this is the case they both benefit from the stability offered by this union, growing in integrity in their own lives.

 

Paul's Saturn Square Joanne's Mercury

Orb 039' Separating

A lasting union is indicated by this combination of the planets Mercury and Saturn, but only if the pitfalls are avoided. The problems could include poor communication, judgmental or critical attitudes to each other or a fear of intimacy. On a positive note both Joanne and Paul share a mutual respect for each other and are willing to work towards sound communication. However, they are likely to strike obstacles along the way, which will test their commitment. If Joanne and Paul can overcome these obstacles then they will strengthen their bond. If not, one or both of them is likely to feel imprisoned by the relationship. It's also possible that Joanne's self-esteem is adversely affected if Paul is too critical. A personal relationship is the most difficult to balance with this combination. A working relationship is also a challenge.

This sombre planet can take away some of the short-term excitement of any union, but on a positive note it adds commitment and security needed for a long-term association.

There is also a strong feeling of fate in this relationship. Joanne and Paul may tell a story of how destiny meant for them to be together. While this combination of planets indicates a serious personal relationship, it can also be a positive influence on a partnership formed for the purpose of an artistic or creative project requiring both inspiration and hard work.

 

Paul's Saturn Square Joanne's Mars

Orb 222' Separating

This combination of the planets Mars and Saturn suggests a strong commitment in which Joanne and Paul struggle to understand each other. On the one hand both Joanne and Paul are committed to making this partnership work. On the other hand they face almost insurmountable difficulties along the way. Ancient astrologers consider the planets Mars and Saturn to have a harmful effect on humanity. Therefore this relationship is in grave danger of causing emotional or physical damage to both Joanne and Paul. The trouble is that they are both determined to force their own egos on to each other, and can be quite brutal in their efforts to get the other person to do as they wish. They lack understanding and respect for each other. Joanne tries to force her methods on to Paul, only to meet Paul's stubborn refusal to budge on certain matters. The challenge is a big one in this union. Both Joanne and Paul need to carefully consider the future of this relationship, knowing that only mutual respect and caring communication can shine a light on their difficulties.

Orb 400' Applying

The combination of the planets Saturn and Pluto indicates that this is an important relationship, although not necessarily a personal one. Paul and Joanne combine their talents in a way that enhances their lives. Paul provides structure and security so that Joanne can safely make any changes necessary in her life. In return Joanne helps Paul break through any barriers created by her fears. For these reasons this can be a dynamic and satisfying union.

 

Paul's Saturn Sextile Joanne's Ascendant

Orb 149' Separating

The planet Saturn is a vital ingredient in relationship astrology. It is the planet that represents stability and commitment and is seen by astrologers as the necessary glue that holds a relationship together on a long-term basis. Of course not everyone is seeking long-term commitment, but for those who are Saturn is a welcome sign. This is particularly true of connections between one person's Saturn and another person's Sun, Moon, Ascendant or Nodes. In this case Paul's Saturn is combining with Joanne's Ascendant indicating that this is a significant relationship. Paul and Joanne feel strongly drawn to each other, perhaps experiencing a sense that their relationship was written in the stars. In other words they may feel as though they were destined to meet and form a union. This is a significant relationship.

 

 

 

 

Paul's Uranus Conjunction Joanne's Venus

Orb 556' Applying

This combination of planets indicates an instant and vital magnetism. It is the type of attraction in which Joanne and Paul take one look at each other across a crowded room and feel the sparks. Romance is alight and the relationship develops at a rapid rate. Friends are amazed as the couple's union becomes more and more intense. In the short term this relationship provides fun, excitement and stimulation for both Joanne and Paul. The long-term scenario depends on other aspects of their relationship and the ability of both Joanne and Paul to respect each other's need for autonomy. It is all too easy for the initial flame to burn out of control. For this reason this combination of planets can be more prominent in relationships that contain the intrigue of a love affair, rather than the stability of a long-term union. Joanne feels particularly struck by Cupid's arrow, ignited by the very presence of Paul. She wants her love to be strong enough to keep the spark of excitement in the relationship. However, Paul is hard to pin down and is likely to become bored once the initial excitement starts to fade unless he is given plenty of room to be independent. It may be difficult for Paul to make a commitment to this relationship unless he is given the freedom to inspire Joanne without feeling tied down to promises. A strong bond can be achieved if Joanne and Paul can find the right balance between intimacy and personal freedom. If this is achieved then they can both enjoy a long-term relationship full of joy and romance.

Orb 122' Separating

Although not a major contributor to this relationship, the combination of the planets Uranus and Pluto indicates common values. A drive for growth and change is at the basis of this relationship.

Paul's Neptune Opposition Joanne's Moon

Orb 313' Separating

Romance is a major theme in a union that involves the Moon and the planet Neptune. With this combination of planets Joanne and Paul both feel that they are meant to be together. Perhaps they believe that it is a union of their souls. This is the height of romantic love. However, with romantic love there is always the possibility of disillusionment. Joanne and Paul are likely to stumble across obstacles in this relationship because of unrealistic and overly idealistic expectations of each other. It is difficult for them to maintain the heights of love first attained at the beginning of the relationship. Misunderstandings can easily arise. After the first flush of love Joanne feels that her emotional needs are being ignored, that Paul does not understand her. It is even possible that Joanne feels that Paul is being deceptive in some manner. There is a danger that Paul does feel the need to hide behind a facade, failing to be his true self. Perhaps Paul feels that he cannot live up to Joanne's expectations. Despair within this relationship needs to be avoided by both Joanne and Paul facing their feelings of loss in previous relationships. They need to face the problems honestly in order to avoid the breakdown of trust and ultimately the relationship. As a result Joanne and Paul may be able to recapture their sense of belonging together which was so strong in the initial stages of their union.

 

Paul's Neptune Opposition Joanne's Mercury

Orb 721' Applying

This is an inspirational relationship whether it be a romance, friendship or a creative working partnership. Both Joanne and Paul feel excited by this union. Their imaginations are enlivened. However, it is also a difficult combination of the planets Mercury and Neptune. Joanne and Paul need to ensure that they face this relationship honestly. Otherwise they may both be caught in a web of deceit. This could mean viewing each other with rose-coloured glasses, failing to realistically assess the merits of their association. However, it could also be possible that the relationship has an element of deceit or abuse, in particular drug abuse. Both Joanne and Paul could feel disillusioned by their association. It is important that they ensure that the creative, rather than the destructive, elements of their union are emphasised. Perhaps working on an artistic, spiritual or philanthropic project would be beneficial. However, they need to ensure that this project is a positive and appropriate one.

 

Paul's Neptune Opposition Joanne's Mars

Orb 538' Applying

Joanne and Paul have difficulty maintaining a long-term commitment because of the negative influence of the planets Mars and Neptune. There is a strong sense of loss associated with this influence. Perhaps Joanne and Paul have formed a bond based on a shared sense of grief or loss, or maybe they fail to establish a loving bond and suffer as a result. In extreme cases they may be victims of each other's abuse. They find it very difficult to be honest with each other, because straight-talking often becomes confused and hurtful. There is a tendency for them to resort to deceit in order to escape the emotional pain associated with misunderstandings. Of course much of this depends on the influence of other aspects of their relationship. It is possible that Joanne and Paul share a common bond by working together on an artistic, musical, dramatic, spiritual or philanthropic project thereby maintaining a positive focus in their association. However, it is more likely that they struggle to find common ground and therefore maintain a strong and loving bond.

 

 

 

 

Paul's Pluto Sesquisquare Joanne's Moon

Orb 210' Applying

This is an intense and powerful relationship. Joanne and Paul feel a strong attraction to each other, one that seems to unconsciously draw them together. Joanne's and Paul's deep feelings for each other need to be nurtured in a loving manner in order for the union to be long lasting. However, this can be quite difficult for Joanne and Paul to achieve. It's not that they don't love each other, because they do care very deeply. The problem is that at times their intense emotions seem to erupt from nowhere. In fact the feelings have been simmering under the surface ready to be expressed at any moment. The pressure builds up quickly between Joanne and Paul and before they know it they are embroiled in an emotional drama. Of course this can vary, depending on how Joanne and Paul handle intense feelings. Some individuals thrive on intensity, while others feel threatened and powerless. Joanne is likely to feel that her life has been transformed in some way by Paul. It's possible that Paul has changed the way that Joanne feels about the world, making her conscious of things that have been bubbling under the surface for a long time. Life is not the same for Joanne once she encounters Paul. She may feel powerless, overwhelmed by Paul's volatile nature. The key is for Joanne is able to see through the explosive behaviour to the true heart of Paul and to nurture Paul's goodness. As a result Paul will deeply appreciate the emotional support offered by Joanne. If this does not occur then it is likely that Paul will feel angry about the constant demands being placed on him by Joanne. Paul will start to withdraw and become isolated, only initiating contact in the relationship when he feels at boiling point. The challenge for Paul is to maintain a loving attitude and to give Joanne time to learn her emotional lessons. This is indeed a passionate personal union and one that needs to be loving, otherwise there is a danger of abuse. This combination can also signify a secret love affair in which intense feelings are indeed in the background. It can also depict an intense working relationship in which power struggles abound, but it is more likely to point to a personal union.

It is possible that this relationship is a positive one for both Joanne and Paul bringing rewards and challenges that lead to greater fulfilment in both their lives. Power and wealth may result from this relationship. Both Joanne and Paul are ardent in their pursuits enjoying intense and fulfilling pastimes, which are ultimately life changing. However, it is also possible that both Joanne and Paul experience the less attractive aspects of this relationship.

They can be either intensely loyal friends or formidable opponents. Joanne feels empowered by this union, learning to rise to the challenges set by Paul. She feels that life is more exciting and intense, thanks to her union with Paul. Paul is a powerful force in this union.

Orb 102' Separating

Intense emotions are central to this relationship. Joanne and Paul feel a passionate attraction to each other, a compelling need to be together. Sexual magnetism plays an important role in the initial stages of the union and continues, even through times of emotional difficulties. It is also possible that Joanne and Paul share an artistic or creative pursuit about which they are both ardent. Whatever the outlet for the emotions, the key is intensity. On the whole this combination of the planets Venus and Pluto has a positive influence on any association, but it can be overpowering in some instances. If both Joanne and Paul enjoy intensity then this relationship positively transforms both their lives. Together they embrace the changes that challenge any relationship. If one of them dislikes emotional upheaval, then there are likely to be problems. In particular Joanne may feel overwhelmed at times by the force of her own emotions or the power of Paul's personality. At other times Joanne enjoys learning about how to be more influential in her life. Paul feels more powerful as a result of this union with Joanne, more able to achieve his ambitions.

 

Paul's Pluto Opposition Joanne's Saturn

Orb 223' Applying

The combination of the planets Saturn and Pluto indicates that this is an important and challenging relationship, although not necessarily an intimate one. Joanne and Paul have difficulty relating to each other, both approaching the association from different angles. Joanne tends to communicate with Paul in a serious and cautious manner, hoping to run a stable course. However, Paul feels restricted by this method of relating and wants to break out. Resentment can build up on both sides causing friction that is difficult to resolve.

 

Paul's Pluto Square Joanne's Uranus

Orb 233' Applying

Although not a major contributor to this relationship, the combination of the planets Uranus and Pluto indicates a conflict in values. Joanne's need for intellectual stimulation is often met with opposition from Paul, who prefers to delve into underlying meanings. Joanne is more likely to experiment with various innovative methods of tackling problems in order to reach a new solution; however, Paul prefers to rake over old ground delving deeper and deeper in an effort to reach a sound understanding. They clash and find it hard to form a basis of understanding.

Orb 536' Separating

This planetary combination of Pluto is not a significant one in relationship astrology. It indicates common values, which can help form a basis for a relationship. However, many other combinations of planets will make a more significant contribution to this union between Paul and Joanne.
