What is the significance, in a composite chart, of the North Node conjunct the Ascendant? (By less than a degree?) I've gathered up quite a lot of synastric/composite interpretations in the last few days, but this aspect isn't covered.

paras,

The North node is the life direction, the Ascendant is the self, and a composite chart is about the relationship. So if the North node is conjunct (energy is combined with) Ascendant in a composite chart, it indicates the goal of the couple in the relationship is to work on and develop the relationship itself.

Relating,

Tim

North node aspects can be difficult to find in synastry I've had the same problems finding them Paras.

Tim, could you offer your insight on the following in a sysnastry chart (normal synastry not composite) - Womans North Node conjunct Mans Jupiter, MC and Sun - in womans 7th house.
And mans north node conjunct womans MC and Mars in mans 2nd house.

It would be greatly appreciated, thanks

Betelgeuse,

When one person's North node (future goals) connects with another's energies (planets), the person's energies can help the North node person accomplish their goals in life. This synastry would indicate the man can help the woman accomplish here life goals.

In the first case:
Womans North Node conjunct Man's Jupiter (expansion, also wisdom) and Sun (self-expression), perhaps there is a lesson for the woman about her self-expression which the man can teach. The Midheaven (otuer world) is a point, not an energy, but it could indicate that this "self-expressive learning" of the Man takes place in the outer world.

In the second case:
Man's north node conjunct woman's MC (outer world), since no energies are involved, there is no force in the woman helping the Man accomplish his goals. However, the woman's outer world focus will tend to suggest the man man's life goals, but there is no energy behind this "suggestion".

Your last case seems to have nothing to do with nodes:
Woman's Mars (being, also action) focused in Man's 2nd house (physical, also values). This could indicate that the woman is active in helping the man develop his values.

Guessing,

Tim

Thanks Tim, you clarified a lot for me. I was mainly uncertain as to the interaction between the north node person and the planetary person - whom affects whom etc - but you explained it nicely.

Thanks, wilsontc. Nice to hear from you; I've seen a lot of your posts recently and have been quite intrigued. (Hope that doesn't sound like a nutty statement but my nature is to be ever-curious about others, and to always want to put things on a personal level.) You're obviously both very intelligent and very knowledgeable concerning astrology. Thanks so much for contributing to this site!

Hrmmm, now, I need some clarification of your answer, if you can give it. You say that the relationship's goal is to develop itself. By itself, that sounds a bit... what's the word? Narcissistic? I guess what I'm asking is, develop itself to what end?

Nice that you have a website; I'll check it out as soon as I have a spare minute. I've been stacking sleep debt for days now and my gf ORDERED me to get some sleep tonight, so I might not get to right away, but I'm definitely curious!

Can you imagine a world in which each person understood that his only responsibility was to give and receive love?

Paras,

You asked:

The challenge of composite charts is that it creates something which isn't actually there: a "being" called "relationship". In real life (where most of us live! ), it is impossible that two people will combine into one unit called "relationship". So the composite chart indicates an overall direction that the couple will tend to move toward whenever they put aside their differences and work together for each OTHER.

That said, I believe there are limitations in astrology and one of those is when deciding "What is the purpose of all this energy focus I/we are doing in our lives?" Once you start asking those sorts of questions of a relationship, it is a time to talk to your significant other...not an astrologer! What ends do YOU want to come out of the relationship? What ends does the OTHER person want to come out of the relationship? What goals do you BOTH share and are willing to work towards? It seems to me YOU, rather than I, are in a MUCH better position to answer this question!

Putting the burden of living on others,

Tim

Good answer. I guess I got told, haha!

But seriously, I just wasn't sure what you meant. Perhaps I never thought of a relationship's development as one of its goals!

Thanks again.
