hey i looked around and found this one article that perhaps you've seen, ok, actually i found 2 articles. they briefly mention what we're talking about here...
"Be aware that a planet in any sign will have a strong character resemblance to a planet in that sign's natural house. Thus, Mars in Aquarius in one partner's chart will function similarly to an 11th house Mars in the mate's chart, regardless of its sign placement."
and my favorite:
Okay... Here's an example of an affinity... Sun in Aquarius is similar in energy to the Sun in aspect to Uranus. Both of which are similar in energy to the Sun placed in the 11th house.
Extending it, they're also similar to Uranus in Leo and Uranus in the 5th house.
Some astrologers go as far as using the formula:
Sun in Aquarius = Sun aspect Uranus = Sun in the 11th House = Uranus in Leo = Uranus in the 5th house.
While I don't take it quite that far - the energies (and resulting life task issues) are most definitely similar. And for simplicity sake – I'll be using this formula in subsequent examples.
Here's the Formula:
A. Sun in Aquarius = Sun aspect Uranus = Sun in the 11th House = Uranus in Leo = Uranus in the 5th house
B. Moon in Aquarius = Moon aspect Uranus = Moon in the 11th House = Uranus in Cancer = Uranus in the 4th house
person a: Sun conjunct Uranus, Sun in the 11th house
person b: Sun trine Uranus
person a: Moon conjunct Uranus, Uranus in Cancer, Moon in the 11th house
person b: Moon sextile Uranus, Uranus in Cancer
These two people are dealing with the same life task issues encircling the archetypal energy of Uranus and "independence, freedom, excitement."
Okay now… Would this "shared affinity thing" be a wee bit more convincing... if I further told you that every "life-changing She" this guy has been involved with - the "life-changing She" has had the Sun in aspect to Uranus (and most had their Moon in aspect to Uranus)?
Sun in Virgo = Sun aspect Mercury = Sun in the 6th House = Mercury in Leo = Mercury in the 5th house
person a: Sun in Virgo, Mercury in Leo
person b: Sun in the 6th house, Mercury in the 5th house
And while all shared affinities appear to have some validity in mutual attraction…. Shared affinities involving the Sun, Moon, Venus, and Mars aspecting the transpersonal planets of Uranus, Neptune, and Pluto appear to be the most earth-moving, shattering, difficult, compulsive, transformative, and exciting affinities. (i.e. They have the old "Yee Haw," "Ooh baby, Ooh baby" effect!)
Let's mix it up a little.
Here's the formula:
A. Sun in Scorpio = Sun aspect Pluto = Sun in the 8th House = Pluto in Leo = Pluto in the 5th house
B. Moon in Scorpio = Moon aspect Pluto = Moon in the 8th House = Pluto in Cancer = Pluto in (or conjunct) the 4th house
C. Venus in Scorpio = Venus aspect Pluto = Venus in the 8th House = Pluto in Taurus or Libra = Pluto in the 2nd or 7th house
D. Mercury in Scorpio = Mercury aspect Pluto = Mercury in the 3rd or 6th House = Pluto in Gemini or Virgo
E. Sun in Aquarius = Sun aspect Uranus = Sun in the 11th House = Uranus in Leo = Uranus in the 5th house
person a: Scorpio Sun
person b: Scorpio Sun, Sun squared Pluto, Pluto in Leo
person a: Moon in the 8th house
person b: Moon squared Pluto, Pluto conjuncting the 4th house (from the 3rd house)
person a: Venus in 8th House, Pluto in the 7th house
person b: Venus in Scorpio
person a: Mercury in Scorpio, Mercury sextile Pluto, Pluto in Virgo
person b: Mercury in Scorpio, Pluto in the 3rd House
person a: Sun square Uranus, Uranus in Leo person b: Sun trine Uranus
