I posted in another thread tonight (well for me anyway), some stuff from a general astrology book by Julia and Derek Parker.
Here is a section titled 'Synastry Questions and Answers' that doesn't so much focus on the aspects but more so comparison:
"Here are some basic questions to ask yourself. Is either partner:
A Scorpio, strong Pluto
A Aquarius, Sagittarius, Aries, strong Uranus or Jupiter.
A Leo, strong Venus or Jupiter.
A Capricorn, Virgo, Cancer with no Leo planets, strong Saturn.
Q Possessive or clinging?
A Taurus, Cancer, strong Venus or Moon.
A Libra, Cancer.
Q Very emotional?
A Prominently fire or water signs.
Q Highly sexed and passionate?
A Aries, Scorpio, strong Mars.
Q Very cool and distant?
A Sun, Moon or Venus in Capricorn or Aquarius.
Q Obsessively disciplined?
A Virgo, Capricorn, Scorpio.
Q Over-talkative, gossipy?
A Gemini, Virgo - powerful Mercury.
Q Keen to have children?
A Cancer, Taurus, Capricorn; powerful Moon.
"If the answer to any of the above questions is yes, you then need to decide how the other partner in the relationship will cope with the characteristics that are shown. Then ask yourself the following questions, and the answers to these points will give you most of the answers you will need:
Q Do they have compatible personalities?
A Compare respective Sun, Ascendant, Moon and ruling planet.
Q Will there be sympathy and understanding?
A Compare respective Moon and Venus.
Q Do they have a similar attitude toward money (a frequent cause of clashes)?
A Compare second and eighth houses and Venus, also Pluto by house position, Midheaven.
Q How sexually compatible are the partners?
A Compare respective Venus, Mars and Uranus.
Q Have they decided or discussed how many children they wish to have, if any?
A Compare respective Sun, Moon, fourth and fifth houses.
Q What about careers/work?
A Compare Midheaven, sixth house and respective charts as a whole.
Q What are their shared interests and how well will they adapt to each other's views of them?
A Compare respective fifth house and elements.
