Composite Davison Chart In Synastry

Finding true love with a soulmate is not all that it’s cracked up to be. It’s more likely to be a case of “Help, I’ve found my soul mate!” In astrology, the 7th house is not just the house of marriage, it is also the house of open enemies. It is also opposed the 1st house of the physical self. Therefore the supposed ‘Soulmate’ relationship is very often a tug of war on many levels.

What may feel destined could also be a number of things. The beloved could be reflecting strongly back to you your animus or anima, what you are lacking in your chart, what you have disowned in your chart or, when the relationship turns sour, your worst demons.

With synastry, squares and challenging synastry aspects between a couple are karmic aspects and can be extremely challenging. These will usually enable you to “fast-track” your spiritual evolution by burning off a ton of ingrained karma. Often a soul mate comes into your life simply to do this, but it does not mean it is lifelong. Negative karma from the past can attract you even more strongly than positive karma. Hence those impossible, gut-wrenching, and often unrequited love affairs.

Is this Synastry Chart ‘The ‘One’?

I don’t believe an astrologer can or should ever tell you This is the one”. It could be a one, however, and astrology can certainly show you why you have been pulled together. You will also be able to see why you find it so hard to break up even if the relationship is making you miserable. Usually, these are Moon/Saturn contacts. Looking at the charts individually first is crucial to see what each person can handle in a relationship.

Some people just cannot take too much drama, others would be bored without it. Some may need a very cozy domestic 24/7 togetherness, while others crave space so that a long distance romance might actually suit. Therefore it’s really rather pointless saying “Oh my Sun is conjunct his Moon, we are destined!” if one of you is a thrill seeker and the other likes vegging in front of the TV.

The Davison Composite Chart

The Davison composite synastry chart takes the midpoint in time between the couples birth-date. The coordinates are also halfway. This is my specialty. I love the Davison version of the composite synastry chart because it actually exists physically, so one can take into account the fixed stars. I now use the Davison as my only composite chart, as it keeps things simple and for me, they just work more than the composite midpoint chart.  I have also found them to contain the most magic. This chart describes why you have been brought together and what lessons you have to learn in this lifetime.

Relationships are the best teacher and synastry aspects between the natal charts can show what type of lessons you are learning from each other. One of the most illuminating things to look out for, is when the partner’s important planets or points make a conjunction with the Sun, Moon, AC, Nodes or Vertex in the Davison chart. It shows how important the relationship is for each of them. It will reveal if one is more attached to the union than the other.

Karma In The Composite Chart

The fixed stars in the Davison composite synastry chart can give us an idea of past lives and karma that may have brought the couple together. With soulmates, it is usually very obvious. Symbols and themes will keep repeating themselves and a story will come out. The Nodes will often show the nature of the karmic contract.

It is very important to look at the connections from the synastry chart to the couples natal charts. Strong indicators of many lives together and/or a karmic mission will be confirmed if the couple has conjunctions to the big 3 (Sun/Moon/AC). UPDATE! I believe that the Davison can show the nature of a third entity in the case of hyper-dimensional interference as explained in my Twin Flames or Hell Fires article.

  1. Happy Valentine’s Day, all. Venus at 12-13 d/g’s Capricorn conjuncts my progressed Venus and Mars (“alright tonight”), sextiles it’s own natal Scorpio position as well as my ASC and natal/progressed Neptune (ruler of my 5th house). Late Mon/Tue the Moon it her own Cancer will form a “hexagram of the heavens” (I use that phrase in reference and reverence for SCO/CAN rising Joni Mitchell) with my natal and progressed planets. My natal Moon is 16 d/g’s Taurus.

    Uranus is in my 5th house partile trining my natal Sun, and Jupiter is also in my 5th trining my natal Mars (that rules Aries–mutual reception!).

    Maybe I’ll get a card this year!

  2. Do you compare the Draconic chart to the natal chart also or just to the partner’s Draconic chart. My boyfriend and I have several conjunctions between our Draconic charts.

    • This is really all intuitive so it depends on the individual reading I do. I mainly focus on Draco to Draco, but if you compare one Draco to the other standard chart, you will find links that give more information. You really are going outside standard traditional astrology here, like I said, all very intuitive and when you get in the zone you will see links everywhere and really get a clear picture of the story.

      Same with the orbs, your intuition will tell you if something is relevant. I tend to keep them fairly tight, even to the points of only looking at conjunctions in synastry to the same star. But that is pushing it a bit too far. I guess 3 degrees would be fair.

    • This is a new area for me and one I’m excited to start exploring thanks to Robert Blaschke.
      He recommends Draconic to Natal and to use exact degree conjunctions only. I’m not sure what he means by exact. Does he really mean 0 degs 00′? This will show ongoing soul contracts.

      Interestingly he says natal to sidereal will show the completion of karma. These are the guys you will say bye-bye to in this life time. I have not come across this and need to test it out.

      • I have his relationship astrology book, and it seems that he was referring to conjunctions within 1 degree.

        BTW…I think that it’s refreshing to get astrological insights on relationships from a married couple like you and Jamie.

        Congratulations on the marriage. I wish you all the best! 🙂

        • Thanks Raymond. Its a bit of an odd one isn’t it though? Its very hard for us not to talk shop all the time, and now we have two computers right next to our beds while I’m on holiday here. Uranian overdose!
