VENUS Conjoined MARS: Astrology Aspects Series

VENUS Conjoined MARS: Astrology Aspects Series


Guest author: Arwynne O’Neill  –   Published: February 2024

Today we’re going to be talking about an aspect that’s coming up on February 22, 2024. Mars and Venus are going to be conjunct in Aquarius at 9°.

Venus Conjoined Mars in Transit

This aspect occurs once a year. Since both Venus and Mars move pretty quickly, we’ll only feel the effects around this date, but we can expect to feel a heightened sense of excitement in relationships because both Venus and Mars are relationship planets. Aquarius is a bit more cold, detached and intellectual as an air sign, so it’s not going to be super fireworksy. That being said, it’s probably a great time to get to know somebody new or to reconnect with a partner with whom you share common interests and do something intellectually stimulating together.

Venus Conjoined Mars in the Natal Chart

People with Venus conjunct Mars are described as temperamental and competitive, with an independent, adventurous streak. Often in childhood they feel more connected to the parent of the opposite sex and this is because the blending of male and female energies is heightened when Venus is conjunct Mars, especially when it’s in an air sign like Aquarius where it can be more remote and unconventional then it would be in a different sign.

Depending on how tight the conjunction is, either Venus or Mars might be stronger in the chart. So you want to look at other aspects those planets make. If it’s a tight conjunction, they will act as one super-planet. Any aspects that happen to one will happen to the other and any transits from other planets will affect both Venus and Mars at the same time. If it’s a wider conjunction, say five degrees or more, one of the planets might dominate. For example, Venus might also be opposite Uranus, but not Mars, which would give a very different flavor and add a touch of unexpected, disruptive energy to the personality.

Sexual relationships always play an important part when Venus and Mars are conjunct and these people can be somewhat hedonistic, temperamental and inconsiderate of others in their pursuits of pleasure or their own self-interest in a relationship.

In the excellent book “Aspects in Astrology: A Comprehensive Guide to Interpretation,” Sue Tompkins gives some key phrases for Venus-Mars aspects. They are characterized as the romantic adventurer, love and competition, romantic triangles, sexual love, assertion and compromise, putting energy into beauty, and fighting for money.

She says these people radiate personality and Mars gives vigor to Venus, while Venus softens Mars in the chart, regardless of what sign they’re in. This is a highly creative combination and depending on what sign it’s in, that can indicate how their creativity plays out. She gives the example of Venus and Mars in Taurus being interested in fabrics and textiles, and a talent for working with their hands. Presumably Aquarius would suggest a more intellectual, technological or even abstract and mathematical or digital creativity.

She also stresses the competitive nature of this aspect and says there is frequently a love for or pursuit of money and an appreciation for the finer things, and an enhanced ambition for acquisition.


Venus in Aquarius

Steven Arroyo, in “Person to Person Astrology,” describes Venus in Aquarius as expressing affection freely, unconventionally, flirtatiously, humorously and experimentally. They are individualistic, detached and rebellious. They love exchanging theories and ideas and need to be actively social with many people in order to give fully of their emotional nature.



Mars in Aquarius

These people assert themselves intelligently, individualistically, eccentrically and independently. Achievement of goals can be thwarted by rebelliousness but their revolutionizing urges can be channeled into creative innovations. Aquarius is one of the most loyal signs but they also need to be intellectually stimulated in order to stay interested in anything, relationships included. If they lose interest they’re more likely to become emotionally detatched than to actually be unfaithful.



Celebrities with Venus conjunct Mars in Aquarius

Harry Styles, Alec Baldwin, Tony Robbins, Axl Rose, Gary Oldman, Jennifer Jason Leigh, Sheryl Crow, Holly Hunter and Eddie Izzard

SUN Conjoined SATURN: Astrology Aspects Series

SUN Conjoined SATURN: Astrology Aspects Series

Guest writer: Arwynne O’Neill   –   Published: February 2024

Sun Conjunct Saturn

The Sun and Saturn will be conjunct at 9° Pisces on February 28, 2024. This is an aspect that occurs once a year since the Sun goes through each sign for one month, and Saturn has a 30-year orbit so it spends about two and a half years in each sign, give or take a couple of retrograde periods. Dates for the last 80 years are listed below so you can find your Saturn placement if you don’t know it.

This is a hard-working and somewhat somber transit but it can also be very rewarding if you’ve been working hard. This can be a time when your hard work pays off, where you can achieve long-term goals or prove yourself to others through determined effort. On the negative side, you might find that your desire to assert your individuality or autonomy could be hindered or limited by this transit of Saturn.



Sun conjunct Saturn in the natal chart

This is pretty universally described as a challenging aspect to have in childhood. Most of the books describe this as an aspect of painful self-awareness, pessimism and potential depression. A difficult childhood with possibly harsh, disciplinarian parents or very conservative. Maybe the child had to work very hard, either in school or by actually joining the workforce at an early age. They’re often very serious or even melancholy and emotionally withdrawn. The conjunction in Pisces would certainly amplify that emotional melancholy and depressive nature.

Sue Tompkins, in her wonderful book “Aspects in Astrology,” says this aspect is characterized by self-denial, self-discipline, self-control, self-defense. Other keywords are the importance of authority, illumination of fears and the importance of time because of course Saturn is the planet of time, and the awareness of restrictions and limitations.

She goes on to say when Saturn touches any planet in the natal chart, the person tends to crave the things that planet represents, and when it’s the Sun, people with this aspect yearn to be considered important because they believe or fear that they’re really insignificant, and those feelings start in early childhood. Sun-Saturn children often do not feel a strong sense of their own importance; for some reason they feel their uniqueness and individuality were not recognized, reinforced or accepted. Their tough exterior can mask a desperately sensitive inner life, which may express itself in long-form creative writing, world-building or caring professions, especially those that are emotionally challenging for others. They may be excellent helpers and healers but not particularly nurturing one-on-one.

In adulthood, this aspect is described as conservative, disciplined, ambitious, solitary, hard-working, and often exhibiting a dark sense of humor. They can be trustworthy, good mentors, dependable and often very successful in the long term. Someone you want on your side in the zombie apocalypse or tax season!

They can often become exhibitionists or obsessed with their self-importance because of this perceived repression. So what may start out as an inferiority complex can go to the other extreme where they have a grandiose sense of their own importance in adulthood because they’ve had to carve their personality out of the rough rocks of austerity.

Saturn in Pisces keywords

Spiritual dedication, deep emotions or being an emotional “rock,” limiting beliefs, conservatism or austerity, dogmatism, transformation through hard work, old souls.

Midpoint Composite Charts

Midpoint Composite Charts

Author: Alison Price   –   Published:  January 2024

Podcast Episode

Listen to our podcast episode on Composite Midpoint Charts where Alison and Arwynne discuss this topic. The composite chart we chat about is shown below.


Composite Midpoint Charts: Overview


Two points on a circle will generate two midpoints, the nearer midpoint and the farther midpoint.


Natal Midpoints

A natal midpoint is the point between two planets (Sun, Moon, Mercury etc.) or chart points (Ascendant or North Node, etc.). For example, in a natal chart you can calculate the midpoint between the Ascendant and the Midheaven.

Composite Midpoints

Composite midpoints are formed by the midpoint of the same planet from two (or more) different charts.

Nearer Midpoint

If the first person’s natal Sun is at 5° Libra and the second person’s natal Sun is at 5° Leo, then the composite Sun will be at 5° Virgo. There is also a midpoint at 5° Pisces, but we always use the nearer midpoint.

Computer Generated Composite Midpoint Charts

Solar fire and Astro Gold will calculate composite midpoint charts for you. However, it is important to check the placements of the planets and aspects to the angles as they are sometimes shown as the opposite to that which you would expect.


How to Calculate a Composite Midpoint Chart Computer Calculations

Astro Gold and Solar fire will calculate a composite midpoint chart for you. However, as an Aspiring Astrologer you ned to know how to do it manually. Here is the sequence to manually calculate a composite midpoint chart for two people..

House Cusps in a Composite Chart

The composite Ascendant and the house cusps are calculated differently. Initially we find the Midheaven midpoint and then back calculate the house cusps in the Table of Houses for the location that the relationship is taking place. Unless you are doing manual calculations, the computer will take care of this.

Calculating the Composite Planets

Take both persons Sun’s longitude position and find the midpoint between the two Suns. Place that new composite Sun in the correct position in the composite chart.


Composite Midpoints Special Considerations Chart Calculation Defaults

It is important to measure apples to apples and not apples to oranges. Before you create a midpoint, composite chart make sure both natal charts are cast the same way and they are set for:

  • The same zodiac(tropical or sidereal
  • The same house system (usually Placidus)
  • The same node calculation (true or mean)

When the Natal Planets are Opposite

When natal planets are more than 150° apart between the two charts, you may want to consider both composite planetary positions, that is the nearer and the farther midpoint.

Planets in Signs in Composite Charts

Do not give much value to the sign positions of the planets in the composite charts. It is more useful to consider the planetary house positions, aspects and aspect patterns when interpreting these charts.

Composite Retrograde Planets

One person’s natal chart could have a direct Jupiter. and another person’s natal chart could have a retrograde Jupiter. We usually ignore retrograde motion when using composite charts.

Group Composite Charts

Although composite charts are usually done for a couple, you can cast a composite chart for three or more people. In group charts you see the dynamic of the group or unit.

Example 1

You may cast a composite chart for you and your partner who live in your home. When Granny decides to move in, you can cast the new composite chart with three natal charts to see how things will improve or deteriorate as a third person is added to the home.

Example 2

You may consider creating a four-way partnership at work, or perhaps for a music band. You can cast the composite chart for all four potential members to see how the partnership will change as more people are added.

In group composite charts look to the major aspect patterns that drive the chart for quick information.

Composite Chart Inner Planet Paradox

One paradox in composite planetary position calculations is that the composite Mercury or Venus can sometimes end up on the other side of the chart to the Sun.

This paradox can cause for example, the incorrect aspects of:

  • Sun opposition Mercury.
  • Sun opposition Venus.
  • Mercury opposition Venus.

The suggested solution to this paradox is to take the composite Sun’s position (the nearer midpoint) and, if the inner planets are on the wrong side of the chart, move the inner planets directly opposite the calculated composite Mercury and Venus position (the farther midpoint), and thus near the Sun’s position.

The Sun always is the magnet for Venus and Mercury.


Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie’ Compoiste Midpoint Chart

Venus’ position at 25°48′ Libra is the nearer midpoint. Use the futher midpoint for Venus at 25°48′ Aries. Angelina’s natal Venus is at 28°09′ Cancer and Brad’s natal Venus is at 23°28′ Capricorn. They are in opposite signs and are in fact nearly opposite each other.


The Angles in the Composite Chart

Remember the composite Midheaven and composite IC are both midpoints generated from the two individual charts. Whereas the composite Ascendant/Descendant axis is back calculated from the Midheaven position in the Table of Houses. This indicates that the composite Ascendant is not as important as in natal astrology and one should focus on the condition of the MC/IC angles.

Composite Ascendant

  • Indicates the “face” of the pair shown to the world.
  • Suggests the image they would like to project as a couple.

Composite Descendant

  • Shows the true nature of the relationship.

Composite Charts Interpretation Sequence

Remember the composite chart shows the relationship and not the individuals that formed it. You always need to have interpreted the two natal charts first to glean what each individual wants in a relationship and who they hope to attract.

In composite charts consider:

  • Any house emphasis
  • The luminaries houses
  • The luminaries aspects
  • Any planets conjunct the angles
  • Venus and Mars’ house positions and aspects
  • Any 7th house planets
  • Saturn by house and aspects
  • The other planet’s houses
  • The other planet’s aspects
  • The aspect patterns

Forecasting with a Composite Chart

The usual forecasting techniques of transits, secondary progressions and solar arc directions can be applied to a composite chart. It is not recommended to produce a solar return chart for a composite chart as the Sun’s position in the zodiac is already an extrapolated position. However, you may certainly attempt some research in this regard.

The Composite Vertex

The vertex in composite charts shows the sphere of experience that will be most significant for the couple, and the destiny of the relationship and to where the relationship is eventually going. We always need to consider that any relationship may have another purpose than that which we would normally expect. For example, two people who are married may not love each other anymore but both find solace or friendship within the actual relationship.

What to look for in the composite vertex:

  • A well placed vertex in the composite chart indicates this relationship is having a great effect on the couple and them as individuals.
  • Conjunctions and oppositions need careful consideration.
  • Use a 2° orb.
  • Do not consider the vertex house position heavily. Remember in a natal chart the vertex is typically only found in the 5th, 6th 7th and 8th houses.

Aspiring Astrologer Activity

Using the composite midpoint chart between yourself and your partner:

  • Determine if the inner planet paradox in present in this composite chart. If so, what will you do?
  • List the house positions of the composite planets (not signs).
  • Determine the Ptolemaic aspects in the compositechart.
  • Find any composite major aspect patterns (stellium, grand trine, grand cross, T-Square, Thor’s hammer, yod, cross of David, mini grand trine or mystic rectangle) and write a short interpretation for the pattern. (100 words)
  • Find the most emphasized composite house and briefly comment on the tenants and house meaning in regard to the relationship. (100 words)
  • Note if the emphasized composite house echoes the same houses in the two natal charts or if this a new emphasized house only showing in the relationship and comment. (50 words)
  • In a few sentences describe the composite chart ruler complex exploring the house (not the sign), essential dignity and if it is most elevated, oriental or the almuten and consider all the aspects. (100 words)
  • Note your feelings about this composite chart and how it describes the relationship between you and your partner. (50 words)

Extend Yourself

As an Aspiring Astrologer, to really get to grips with the principles of midpoint composite charts, you can extend yourself.

  • Cast a couple’s two natal charts and only by looking (no arithmetic calculations) decide which sign (and maybe degree) their composite planets will be. Check yourself against the computer calculations.
  • Cast the composite chart for your parents by hand. Do the manual calculations (arithmetic on paper) to see what you can create, then check your manual hand drawn chart against the computer results.
  • Cast a chart for three people that you know by hand. You could use your family member’s natal charts. See what happens to the composite chart as one person is added (when granny moves in) or taken away (when a young adult finally leaves home).
