Welcome to the Compatibility and Conflict Report and the myriad ways of expressing the continual dance of life. This report is based on methods employed through years of working with couples, observing relationships and analyzing the lives of the famous and infamous. The contacts described within this program are certainly not all the combinations possible between two people. But they are the core patterns of relationship analysis that I begin with in determining areas of compatibility and potential conflict between two people. I analyze these basic points of contact to arrive at my interpretation of what is central for an enduring relationship or for one that teaches something of importance and leaves a lasting impression. Additional parts, patterns and interpretations will be added to this report in the future.
In many of the interpretations, I've described the highest potential that one can strive for with a particular combination. Yet it is only a potential and we are human and have complex emotions and contradictory issues and reactions at any given time in our lives. Use this report as a guideline to make your relationships as rewarding and fulfilling as you possibly can. And know that your relationships are simply mirroring your own soul's struggles. Each relationship will fulfill something within you and challenge you to look at your shadow and transform yourself. Sometimes this means staying with a partner or a relationship and sometimes the learning process requires that you let the relationship go. These decisions are never easy and they should only be made after careful and truthful introspection, reflection and guidance. But ultimately, these decisions are yours and yours alone to make. Remember that variety is the spice of life and that although you may have some difficult areas of relating with a partner, it is in those areas that you can learn the most about yourself and others and grow in wisdom. It would be a mistake to look for a partner with whom you have no disagreements at all and this kind of relationship is a fantasy, rarely if ever, a reality.
Thank you for purchasing this report and I hope it is meaningful and useful to you.
Special thanks to John Flagg for unflagging editorial support.
To the mystery and magic of relationship chemistry,
Chapter 1: Enjoyment, Closeness and Lasting Impressions
This section is based on the idea that there are three basic needs in every relationship:
* Interest, energy and stimulation or sexuality.
* Enjoyment, abundance, expansion of awareness and happiness.
* Patterns for commitment, consistency, teaching each other or reaffirming something essential one for the other and vice versa.
The sort between your charts is for eleven separate aspects that define energy, fun and lasting impressions between you. Most strong relationships have at least four to six of these aspects between their charts.
Richard's Sun Conj Elizabeth's Moon:
A Sun/Moon conjunction between your charts is an exceptionally strong bonding aspect. All conjunctions blend the two individual planet's energies into one larger whole. But because the Sun and Moon are natural opposites and a male/female pair, you will feel a unique resonance and an easy blending in many ways with the other person. You could feel more complete or better understood than you have ever felt. There is great opportunity to complement each other. The more exact the aspect is mathematically, the more pronounced the effect, which is like a deep soul communion. This aspect can alleviate many of the conflicting aspects between your charts. You are likely to feel that you've known each other for a long time, or that you've known each other before even though you just recently met. There is an unspoken understanding, because you each reflect or complement a strong and similar part of the other's personality. You could easily feel that you've found a missing piece or expression of yourself in the other. You will find yourself agreeing naturally on many topics and may even share similar past experiences.
You might say that this person knows you better than anyone else you've ever met. Although the blending of the Sun/Moon produces a strong bond it can also mean that one of you (more likely Elizabeth) gives in too readily to the demands of the other. It seems so natural to give to each other. This needn't be negative and can simply indicate that you lend each other support to be all that you can be. You do need to make sure there is a balance so that both of you can shine in the areas of life that are important to you. You're probably often on the same wavelength and you understand each other exceptionally well. In fact, you may understand or reflect each other so thoroughly that it can become a source of irritation. Sometimes being this close is too intense, disconcerting or even scary for one or both of you. If you notice this, be wise and give each other space, so that when you reunite, it will be even sweeter and you will recognize all the more, the very special bond you share. You are likely to speak each others' thoughts and finish each others' sentences.
Elizabeth's Sun Opp Richard's Moon:
A challenging aspect of the Sun and Moon between you can initially attract or repel or both. The outcome depends on other planetary connections in your chart comparison. Respect and recognition of each other is vital with this aspect. Either your approach to life or some of your habitual patterns will be very different from your partner's. As you get to know each other, you may find that you disagree on some important or basic life issues. Initially this will produce conflict but it also offers you the opportunity to understand something more about your partner and even yourself. Do not minimize or belittle your partner's strong feelings. Instead, learn to allow each other to have your say and find ways to compromise, so that one person doesn't always give in to the wishes or demands of the other. Sometimes these aspects can indicate a lack of appreciation for the life view, habits or patterns of the other. Lack of appreciation will quickly erode your love for each other. Of course, you cannot expect always to agree but you can learn to tolerate a style or strengths in the other that are different from your own. These differences can in fact complement your life together. There will be times when you feel that the two of you are going in opposing directions and that you just rub each other the wrong way. This may be quite true but it gives you the choice to talk about what each of you want and how both of you can support each other. It may be that this aspect indicates that you need separate interests and fewer shared projects. When you come together again, you will bring plenty of new experiences into the relationship and life will rarely be dull.
Elizabeth's Moon Trine Richard's Asc.:
There is an easy outlet for the expression of emotions in your relationship and your partnership will have a strong emotional component. Expressing your feelings will be important and necessary in your relationship and will bring you closer. Sensing each other's moods and being responsive to your partner's moods and needs is greatly facilitated by this aspect. Simply being yourself, being accepted and feeling liked is the prevailing mood created by this connection between you. Provided you can handle the extra measure of emotional sensitivity, your relationship is enhanced by support of each other's feelings. You are likely to enjoy many of the same activities and have a unique and intimate way of understanding each other that makes being in each other's company comfortable. Interfacing with others and the public at large is an important additional way the two of you relate when you are together. People and social issues are of interest to you. Most people will find you caring, compassionate and sincere. The intent of this aspect is to increase your caring and nurturing capacities with each other and those whose lives you touch. Compassion and understanding in action are an important feature of your relationship.
Richard's Moon Square Elizabeth's Asc.:
This aspect requires that you explore the dynamic of emotion and action or that you are willing to act on the emotional needs required of your life together. One or both of you may have difficulty with excessive displays of emotion. When you are together and either of you is overly sensitive due to tiredness or any sort of stress, the expression of emotions can become extreme. Feelings seem to burst from either of you almost unexpectedly and in a flood. After one too many emotional outbursts, one or both of you may be reluctant to fully express yourself for fear of negative reactions from the other. Unmet needs will quickly become damaging to your relationship. There may be times that you feel out of sync with your partner and feel misunderstood or not properly acknowledged. This can be quite frustrating. To prevent unwanted and unwarranted dumping of emotions, make time regularly in your relationship life for the venting of emotions or simply set aside a time when you are calm, to process and discuss your emotional life. This tactic will prevent feelings from being bottled up and reduce excessively emotional scenes or emotions expressed inappropriately.
Elizabeth's Moon Conj Richard's Saturn:
You are serious about each other and your relationship. Or there's a serious tone, a sense of responsibility between you when you are together. This can be positive or it can put a damper on things, it depends on what each of you want from the other. One meaning of this aspect is that you have some important work to accomplish together and you could even go into business together. You are likely to feel a strong commitment and form a bond with each other that goes to your roots. Both of you will feel the strong connection and this can become devotion to each other. Although at times you will feel burdened by the obligations you inevitably share, this aspect is a strongly binding one. Possibly Richard may want more security within the relationship than Elizabeth, but this does not always follow. There is a mutual urge for establishing some type of commitment or at least creating rules of engagement for your relationship. Discussions of emotional or financial security will likely arise early in the relationship. The partnership works best if there are clear structures that both of you agree upon. With practice working together, you quickly become adept at problem solving, planning, organizing and honoring commitments you've made. Important issues between the two of you will concern responsibility, keeping promises, maintaining integrity, timeliness, parents, children and the overall structure or pattern of your life together. Having goals to pursue and work towards will enhance your partnership. As a team, others view you as stable, reliable and dependable. They may seek out your advice and counsel because they view you as responsible or even wise.
Richard's Sun Square Elizabeth's Jupiter:
In your life together, you will feel compelled, sometimes driven, to seek adventure, learning and travel experiences. The impulse of the aspect is to exceed limitation and to maintain the freedom to explore new experiences. These desires can at times clash with the more stable requirements of a relationship. If you can adventure together often enough, the times when one of you wants to go it alone may be tolerable. If not, this will be one of your issues. Together, you will desire to challenge yourselves and each other to reach new heights and test your abilities to exceed expectations. It's possible you will engage in sports and physical activity in general, which will alleviate the restlessness of this aspect. Above all, you want variety and will resist boredom. Reckless excessiveness is more of a pitfall with this aspect of Jupiter between your charts. Grandiosity and ego-excesses can get in the way of harmonious relationships with yourselves or others. The choices you make will teach you wisdom faster than you can believe is possible. You want to live the good life but you may not have the resources immediately at hand. Refrain from over-extending yourselves unnecessarily either financially, physically, emotionally or spiritually. Otherwise, your mutual goodwill could erode into blaming each other for spending your resources and feelings of being overwhelmed.
Elizabeth's Moon Sextile Richard's Jupiter:
This is an aspect of abundance, generosity and exuberance. Your giving nature will easily spill over into every project you are involved with and the people you contact as a couple. Others will enjoy your company because you exhibit a "can do" attitude that is allowing, supportive and creative. You will feel happy in each others' presence and find that your joy is doubled. Keeping a sense of adventure and continued learning alive is an important feature of your relationship. You can easily take greater emotional risks with each other because there is a great capacity for openness and goodwill between you. Honest and candid communication is easier with this combination. Abundance and opportunity seem to flow from you and equally toward you, quite naturally. The way to maintain that flow is to give back on a regular basis to causes and charities of your choice. Because you so often take the positive position, good things will come easily into your life. Excessiveness is an issue that must be tempered or else you will find yourself overwhelmed with either too many things to take care of and overextended by too many promises to people and projects. Learning to say no, after carefully considering your level of commitment, is an important lesson for you.
Elizabeth's Venus Square Richard's Jupiter:
Essentially positive, expansive, generous and joyful, this aspect between your charts generates its share of exaggeration and excess if not handled carefully. This is the classic, "too much of a good thing". The truth could be stretched or unnecessary risks taken with your resources or your affections. Guard against taking too much for granted, or you may easily lose something valuable to you Be careful of having too high expectations or promising more than you can truly give. Be aware of boasting and showing off, since it is likely to bring you the opposite of what you desire. The impulse is for betterment and supporting positive influences in your lives together but the compulsion in this aspect may be to get it all at once or immediately. Take the time to discern the experiences and influences that really matter to you and look at the long term, at least part of the time. The intent of the aspect is to make you aware of where you tend to be excessive and the consequences of that. There will always be a tendency to push the envelope a bit and it's up to the two of you to decide when that's in your best interest or not. A sport of some kind would be good outlet for your restless energies.
Chapter 2: Emotions and Communication Between You
These aspects detail the quality of the emotional connection and basic comfort between the two of you and your ease or difficulty in communicating, talking with each other and simply understanding where each of you is coming from. These aspects also describe how you reason together and resolve issues or problems.
Richard's Moon Sextile Elizabeth's Moon:
You are each blessed with a natural, easygoing and similar emotional style. You share some of the same rhythms and habits that will make daily contact more comfortable for each of you. Timing will not be as much of an issue, in that you can more easily and quickly respond to each other's emotional levels of excitement or energy and empathize with each other's disappointments, in ways that both of you feel met by the other. You can fire each other up and cool each other down because you'll frequently be riding the same emotional wave. You're able to support each other when feelings overflow. Basically, you both seek the same kinds of comforts and can relate easily to each other's peculiarities. In fact, you can accommodate your partner's idiosyncrasies with humor and even turn them into jokes that become part of the private fabric of your relationship life. If you share living space, you are likely to have domestic tastes that match easily. Environments that comfort and support you are more often than not, shared by your partner. Social connections and the types of people you choose to interact with will be similar. And you will appreciate the fact that you love the same interests and are able to share and enjoy numerous different activities together. This is not to say that at times you won't be totally perplexed by each other's reactions because there are other factors in each of your personalities that must be considered. Also, if your upbringing is very different, it will add to the emotional adjustments you will need to make. Still, on the whole it seems easier for the two of you to make these adjustments.
Richard's Mercury Square Elizabeth's Mercury:
Although you are attracted to each other, there are times when one of you will have great difficulty in figuring out where the other is coming from and what she (or he) is trying to tell you. Your styles of communication can be very different. The premises upon which you base your reasoning or the logic you use will often perplex your partner. Especially if you have to decide on projects or activities together, your differences can quickly become an issue between you. Talking things through slowly, step by step, will help each of you to understand how the other arrived at his (or her) opinion or conclusion. This will take patience but in the end will be worth it. What's more, by taking the time to really understand how your partner is thinking, you can not only learn something important about your partner but also get a different perspective yourself. You will also learn how your communication affects others, since your partner is probably not the only one who can't always understand what you're trying to say or figure out your logic. You've attracted this kind of relationship exactly for the purpose of fine tuning your thought processes and becoming more adept and flexible in the ways you have of communicating with others. This will be doubly useful if you are in a business that requires writing or regularly communicating with others.
Chapter 3: Fulfilling Each Other's Partnerships Needs
These aspects explain how you meet each other's desires and dreams in special partnerships and one-on-one relationships. These aspects are based on what your natal chart describes that you're looking for in any major relational interaction.
Richard's Moon Opp Elizabeth's 7th house ruler, Mercury:
There is a subtle emotional communication between you. Often a subliminal understanding of each other's moods means that you can intuit what your partner is about to say or do. And you communicate quite easily on a wide variety of topics. There will, however, be a strong emotional content to your communication. And you will often want to discuss your feelings and concerns with each other. The quality of your communication with each other, not so much what you say but how you say it, will be important to the harmony between you. Domestic and family concerns are important topics between you and learning to problem-solve sensitive issues that one or both of you both feel strongly about, will be one of your challenges. Nurturing and creating spaces for development to take place - such as, but not limited to, safe environments for children, teens or women is a strong possibility. The common denominator in many of your projects is creating situations that are nurturing as well as informative. The intent of this aspect is to make you aware of the emotional undercurrents of language and how voice tone and inflection can make all the difference in your communication and how others receive it. Processing what you've learned separately and together will be necessary on a very regular basis. Whether or not you feel heard by your partner and that your opinion is acknowledged is another crucial learning in your relationship.
Richard's Mercury Square Elizabeth's 7th house ruler, Mercury:
Communication, sociability and a keen awareness of your environment will be key elements and important features of your relationship. Quick comebacks, bantering with language, discussing what you've read or heard and a continued curiosity for learning new things are some of the special joys you share. Communicating your thoughts and ideas with each other openly and honestly will grant you valuable closeness and intimacy. Make sure that you're willing to process some of the feelings beneath the words of your communication to bring your relationship to a deeper level, provided that's what you want. You probably share many interests and together you will seek even more activities to stimulate you, so there's no chance to get bored. Being together seems to increase your curiosity for further information, input and socializing. Getting overloaded from one too many events or too much people contact within a short span of time, without processing the input effectively, will have a negative result if you're not careful. Over-scheduling yourselves individually or as a team can bring about unwanted stress and irritation. The intent of this aspect is to help you discriminate among the voluminous mass of information you come in contact with or that you seek out. It's worth remembering that sometimes what sounds intelligent may in reality be hogwash. This aspect can liberate you to separate the wheat from the chaff, the essential from the -- not worth your time or attention.
Richard's Venus Sextile Elizabeth's 7th house ruler, Mercury:
There is a distinctive sweetness in the way the two of you relate when you are together. This is evident in your manner of speaking or the considerate way you treat each other. Others will notice this and comment on the obvious affection and cooperative spirit you express toward each other. In fact, one of you may even be too willing to make compromises in the partnership or too often. When things are sweet it's so compelling and both of you want to keep it that way. Of course you want the harmony to last but, at the same time, be sure that things are fair and that you're comfortable with your contribution to the relationship. It's vital that responsibilities are equally shared. Certainly during the course of your relationship there will, at times, be breaches in consideration and mindfulness of each other's needs and roles within the partnership Then you will have to discuss what's happening for both of you and compensate or compromise until you've reached a balance with each other once more. The intent of this aspect is to help you discover each other's needs in the context of your partnership through open communication making the necessary adjustments for harmony. The aspect also teaches the importance of give and take and negotiation in yours and any other relationships you may share. Social interaction with others, how much or how little, will be another topic for the two of you to balance.
Richard's MC Conj Elizabeth's 7th house ruler, Mercury:
Initially, you will be attracted to each other through some form of communication, or a situation of learning, writing, commuting or social networking. Communication, learning, traveling, youth services, writing - any of these can be important interests or activities in the course of your ongoing relationship. How you relate and talk to each other, or your favorite topics of discussion will have some impact on either one or the other's career. Balancing career commitments with leisure and at home time is another issue that will require your negotiation and communication. The intent of this aspect is to make you aware of the important role of language and communication in the overall successful functioning of your relationship. You are together to share knowledge, not only with each other but also within your community circle which can include, but is not limited to, local schools, churches, politics, programs for children or young adults or any number of other community services that attract your interest.
Elizabeth's Moon Conj Richard's 7th house ruler, Saturn:
With this aspect, you probably recognized early on in your relationship that it was an important connection or that you had something to teach each other. There is a sense of history or of deep, even ancient feelings that draw you closer together. Sometimes this combination brings obstacles or challenges to being with each other, or you will feel restricted in the circumstances created between and around you. Still, the feelings you have for each other tend to be strong one way or the other, and, if you are committed to the relationship, you will work to remove the obstacles you find. There is a desire to take care of each other or to protect each other or nurture an idea or project together. These protective urges can indicate that your commitment to each other or your endeavors are solid and meaningful. Making contracts or promises with each other seems natural and feels right. It is likely that you will want to live with each other if you are in a romantic partnership. Your relationship will bring out core and essential issues for both of you and make you realize the factors and elements that make up the standards you hold for your life. Security, integrity and trust must be honored in your relationship in order for it to endure and develop in a healthy way. The intent of this aspect is to remind you of the preciousness of life and how important it is to respect and honor whatever enters your circle of life and to treat it carefully.
Elizabeth's Jupiter Square Richard's 7th house ruler, Saturn:
Meeting each other can bring a sense of possibility into your lives and a change in each of your existing patterns and structures. You will feel a sense of destiny or that your connection portends something of importance for both of you. In some cases, your relationship means a distinct economic or status change and you will encourage ambition and opportunity in each other's careers. Aspects of life that one of you finds difficult, the other can appear to accomplish easily. In these ways, you can balance each other and support the wholeness of your relationship. A certain amount of time is necessary for your relationship to develop and mature, since one of you (possibly both of you), is a bit more cautious and reluctant to be involved. If other aspects agree and support, the two of you could easily go into business together. Supply and demand regarding your available resources of time, money, energy and emotion will need to be negotiated. There will be times when things go out of balance and you will then need to evaluate your habits and spending. The intent of this aspect is to secure your economic, as well as your emotional stability by fully developing the resources at hand and making your assets and talents grow in the mutually supportive environment of your relationship.
Elizabeth's Pluto Trine Richard's 7th house ruler, Saturn:
The relationship you establish together will challenge and transform both of you. You have a powerful effect on each other. You need to guard against trying to control one another. Seek rather to empower each other and support the desires and ambitions you have. If you join forces, you can achieve great things and even become experts in your fields. Fighting each other will be a great loss, because both of you are strong and the battle will drain your resources for achievement. This is not the easiest of aspects to handle and you will have challenges that will either make you stronger or bring an end to your partnership. There is even the possibility of scandal. Taking charge of your patterns and supporting the intentions of your relationship will guard and protect it from needless harm. Nip negative habits in the bud to prevent ruts from forming. Maintenance is your best bet for a powerful and successful partnering. The intent of this aspect is to remind you to respect the needs and desires and even the habits of your partner. You will learn that you cannot change your partner but only yourself and your attitude toward your partner and your relationship. This aspect teaches major lessons and they are only arrived at with deep soul searching and an honest integrity. If you and your partner are able to agree to the terms of your life together, you have the potential to be very influential and contribute a great deal to the community and society in which you live.
Chapter 4: Your Closest Contacts, Your Strongest Themes
This section interprets the closest connections between your charts. The idea is that the closest ties explain the major or central themes of your relationships and the reason you have come together. The nature of these aspects will also define the main activities, interests and patterns that comprise your life together.
Notice that in this section each paragraph contains both the easier expression of energies as well as the more challenging ones. Both interpretations are included because these close connections pertain to the central learning curve of your relationship. Based on the premise that the more exact the connection (also the closest energetic contact) between your pair of planets, the more psychologically significant the aspect will be for each of you. This means that you are likely to be strongly influenced by each other in the areas described. Because of this, it will be useful to consider both the easier and more challenging interpretations even though you lead with one of them. You will, from time to time and in various circumstances, probably exhibit some elements of each group, both the easier expressions as well as the more challenging ones. Another thing -- it's possible with both types of aspects that you will have the same challenges but simply respond or react to them in different ways. The goal is to rise to the best possible expression of each combination. This is the learning curve and this bestows wisdom.
Elizabeth's Sun Square Richard's Mercury (challenging aspect):
If this is your most exact aspect, the primary theme of your relationship involves communication and connection with others and the gathering and distributing of information as the central focus of your partnership.
Challenging aspects: Communication is an integral ingredient in your relationship. In fact, it's so relevant that you will make an extra effort to seek out social relationships and activities involving learning and communication. At times, your varied interests will clash and prevent you from being in the same place at the same time and cause one or both of you frustration. You will need to monitor this situation so that you don't drift apart. Make sure that you do have more activities together than apart.
Easier aspects: You will stimulate each other's minds and likely understand each other quite well, most of the time. Both of you will seek social relationships and ways of connecting with others and with life. Wittiness and simply talking with each other about all sorts of topics will be an important aspect of how you relate to each other.
Richard's Mercury Square Elizabeth's Mercury (challenging aspect):
If this is the most exact aspect between your charts, your main relationship theme involves the quality of your communication with each other, how you seek information and also your social network and connections.
Challenging aspects: You will need to work on understanding your different styles of communication. At times, your inability to make sense of each other's ideas or explanations can be quite frustrating. Patience is a quality that will come in handy as you seek to make yourselves understood, and learning to be flexible in the way you communicate will eventually get your message across. Because you enjoy many different experiences, sometimes you will overschedule yourselves and create frustration. Information junkies that you can be, you'll sometimes overwhelm yourselves with the sheer volume of facts you gather. Slow down, breathe, and you'll be better able to synthesize and understand the information at hand.
Easier aspects: You are blessed with being able to understand what your partner says or what your partner means most of the time. In fact, you probably have better than average communication in your relationship. You will also be seen as witty and fun by others and you are likely to have a large network of friends. You are busy people, since you enjoy the stimulation of a variety of activities and want to keep up with the latest information.
Elizabeth's Moon Trine Richard's Asc. (easier aspect):
If this is the most exact aspect between your charts, your main relationship theme concerns the comfort you feel with emotional expression or its lack, in your relationship. You will be acutely aware of and receptive to each other's emotional state, the feelings of others and your environment.
Easier aspects: Emotional expression will probably be easy between you. In fact, warmth, closeness and physical demonstration of affection are desired and enjoyed by both of you. You are likely to attract others to you readily and may even be in a business where there is much interaction with the general public. Your preferred style together is naturalness, caring and sincerity in your dealings with people and it is exactly what endears you to others.
Challenging aspects: Because you are so emotionally attuned to each other, you can become hypersensitive to your partner's moods and, at times, can easily hurt each other's feelings. Balancing your emotional expression by curbing excessive displays of negativity or refusing to use emotionality to gain inappropriate attention will be one of your tasks. Family concerns and various emotional situations can push your boundaries and prevent you from progressing. Be compassionate and helpful but also firm, to maintain your own emotional balance.
Richard's Mercury Square Elizabeth's Neptune (challenging aspect):
If this is the most exact aspect between your charts, your main relationship themes concern imagination, compassion, understanding, faith and inspiration. The arts and music in some form will be a mainstay in your lives.
Challenging aspects: Your desire for peace and harmony can also create a difficulty with boundaries for you. You will have to be careful so you don't play the victim by involving yourself needlessly in unfortunate circumstances or allowing yourself to be taken advantage of. Make sure your self-esteem is healthy and that you tell others how you wish to be treated. You will always have a soft spot for those who are hurt or in need, and serving through organizations or agencies that provide services for such people can be a way to strengthen yourself. Music and art will inspire and uplift you.
Easier aspects: There is a gentleness and affection that you easily express as partners. You have a great capacity to forgive and make allowances for the foibles and failings of others. You can inspire and smooth over the inevitable hurts and pains of life through understanding and compassion. Being of service or providing a service for caring or inspiration is probably a strong part of your lives. Your belief in a unifying life principle leads you to a spiritual practice of your choice. Participation and appreciation of the arts is vital in your lives.
Elizabeth's Uranus Square Richard's Asc. (challenging aspect):
If this is the most exact aspect between your charts, your main relationship theme is to express yourselves freely without constraint and without automatically conforming to societal expectations. You support truth and human rights.
Challenging aspects: You are rebellious and attract attention or create a scene wherever you go. Sometimes this works in your favor but at other times it is disruptive and earns you reputations as rabble-rousers, malcontents or simply troublemakers. There's more than one way to get your point across. Work at smoothing some of your rough edges, and your original and timely message may actually penetrate the consciousness of those you seek to influence. Your relationship life can be chaotic, because you bring out the strong will in each other, which doesn't easily lend itself to the compromise necessary in relationship. Still, if you want to be together as a team, you'll need some rules to go by.
Easier aspects: You are unusual in some way, either your looks or your unique way of approaching life. Others may be fascinated with your boldness and your willingness to go against the grain. You tend to be very much who you are without putting on any social airs. People will respect your truthfulness and enjoy knowing that they can count on your honest opinion. In your relationship, you were probably best friends before you became intimate partners and you will likely always remain best friends.
Elizabeth's Moon Trine Richard's Pluto (easier aspect):
If this is the most exact aspect between your charts, your main relationship theme concerns managing the deep feelings you arouse in each other. Learning to channel the powerful emotions generated by your partnering is your next challenge.
Easier aspects: Your bond is strong and focused, you can change anything you train your attention on. The power generated by this aspect cannot be contained by your relationship alone. You will find yourselves involved in organizations where powerfully committed people like yourselves gather to make things happen. Being analytically inclined, you can be problem solvers or a healing force in business or in your community. Beyond that, you are survivors and can regenerate in spite of any difficulties you may encounter.
Challenging aspects: You will need to work through some power struggles and even some psychological demons you bring with you from past experiences. Curbing reactiveness and projection is something you will be challenged to resolve through trial and error. Because your feelings are so intense, fear of loss can be generated, which in turn can give rise to jealousy, control or possessiveness. These emotional responses will not get you what you want. If you can't easily resolve your conflicts, seek professional help. Once you settle your power struggles with each other, you will have much to offer the world and your community.
