How do you find love?
That’s the question, this forty-something year old named Natalie (not her real name) asked during her cosmobiology consultation. She had been through multiple lovers and was desperate for guidance in hopes of finding that special fulfillment and feeling of belonging.
As you’ll see in her synastry analysis, a better question is: how could she expect anything but disappointment and despair from these relationships?
Let’s first look at Natalie's chart using basic astrological principles and then delve into a cosmobiology and synastry comparison.
Her natal chart shows both the Sun and Moon in Capricorn. As we know from astrology, the sun represents self-expression or the spirit and vitality of the person while the moon relates to her emotional well-being and personality.
Capricorn is the sign of ambition and endurance. With these two planets positioned in this sign, combined with her many planets in fixed signs, it’s easy to see why she was focused on achieving goals and striving for advancement. Now, let’s see how this compares to her lover.
She had great respect for this man. Similarly aspected with the Sun, Mercury, and Venus in Capricorn, he was ambitious and had worked his way up several rungs on the corporate ladder at a large manufacturing firm. He commanded a large salary with numerous perks. and recently, his firm had begun flying him about the country to negotiate some of their biggest deals.
His fierce attacking style, which had gained him entry into boardroom, carried over to their relationship. One word she repeatedly used was 'turbulent' and described great arguments, sometimes over the littlest things. This sparring was fun in the beginning as she hated lukewarm relationships, but soon turned to abuse.
Let’s consider two midpoints they shared: Mars to Mercury and Mercury to Mars. Yes, these were reciprocal midpoints between their charts.
Mercury represents the mind and communication while Mars means force, ambition, and sexual energy.
Since these cosmobiology midpoints were in both charts, the interpretation is that each partner will challenge one another’s thinking often quite vigorously and forcefully. This is exactly what happened; they would have intense conversations ranging from everyday ordinary topics to more complicated personal issues.
Had this midpoint occurred in only one of their charts, then Mars naturally would be the attacker and challenge Mercury’s thinking, communication, and even philosophies.
In part two of Capricorn Love, we explore more deeply some of the personal sides of their relationship and why it would never bring her the satisfaction and contentment she sought. This and other fascinating case studies of how midpoints impact relationships are taken directly from the book, Midpoint Synastry Simplified.
