would you interpret the chart as though it were a composite?

No, the davidson is a chart that reflects outer influences affecting the relationship itself.

You only use it for transits to signal when a relationship will be going through significant changes.

Kismet*, what do you mean by outer influences exactly? The way the relationship is shaped by external influences or the way the relationship is perceived socially? Kind of like the social mask of the connection?

Outer influences mean planets in transit that affect the davidson chart's planets and points by orb.

i thought davidson charts were basically like composites, but rather than mathematical midpoints, it's time midpoints?

They are literally composites, but you interpret them differently.

Actually there are many theories out there how to interprete Davison.
One is the one Kismet suggested.
But of course you can interprete the Davison just like the composite. It`s also a midpoint chart (just the midpoint of the birthdates).

I never heard of that, that the Davidson is about outside influences acting on the relationship. I thought it was just another method of devising a composite chart, much like Koch and Equal & Placidus etc are just different methods of house division.

You would certainly want to consider transits that could affect a midpoint composite chart as well. Maybe the Davidson is more about that than it is about the nature of the relationship..? This is about where I start to see it all fall into a sea of one thousand monkeys all banging on keyboards, and one of them happens to come up with a Shakespearian sonnett. I mean, maybe it's true, but too many layers and too much detail starts to offend my strong Saggie big picture way of thinking. Sometimes we can't see the forest for the trees with Astrology. I know the details are money for some, but for me it gets to be too much. We over complicate everything us human folk. Or maybe I'm just lazy. I dunno. ;p

****DAVISON

Sorry, it was bothering me

The reason why people don't usually use transits with midpoint composites is because it's not a chart of an actual point in time. Many times a midpoint composite can have impossible planetary configurations (like Venus opposite Sun). There also aren't any retrograde planets in a MP Composite.

I pay more attention to the Composite when interpreting relationships, but look to Davison or even the first meeting chart for transits.

That makes sense. Thank you, Clarica agent.
(remember those commercials where the Clarica insurence agent explained some weird confusing thing to someone, like to the parents of a kid who was listening to incoherent rap music...etc? That's like you amowls. You could be a Clarica agent)

A little geeky from me, but that is funny!
