Part One -- Planets and Aspects
Each of us has every planet in his or her chart. Each planet symbolizes a different facet of life. In synastry, when we compare two charts, we look at the aspects (distance in degrees) between the planets of one chart and the planets of the other to determine areas of potential ease or difficulty. In general, sextiles and trines are easy aspects; squares and oppositions are challenging or dynamic aspects. Conjunctions can be either easy or difficult, depending on the planets involved.

Below, a brief (necessarily incomplete) description of the areas of life ruled by each of the planets: SUN: The life force, the ego center, who you are at your core. MOON: Feelings, home, mother, family, sensitivity, nurturing, moods. MERCURY: Communication, schooling, short trips, negotiations, the mind. VENUS: Emotions, asthetic and artistic sense, what you have to offer a lover or partner if you're a woman; what you want in a partner if you're a man. MARS: Aggression, desires, competitiveness, ego drive, conflict, what you bring to a relationship if you're a man; what you want if you're a woman. JUPITER: Expansion, generosity, travel, optimism, knowledge, beliefs. SATURN: Restrictions, discipline, fear, burdens, status, ambition, authority. URANUS: Innovativeness, quirkiness, rebelliousness. NEPTUNE: Dreams, illusions, drugs, deception, spirituality. PLUTO: Death and regeneration, elimination, tumultuous change, power.


Common Aspects

Moon sextile Moon
When your Moons sextile one another's it's generally an indication of an emotionally compatible and supportive relationship. You are likely to share similar views on your family and your home, and you're also likely to feel comfortable in similar domestic situations. Because of this, the aspect is especially favorable for those who share living quarters.


Venus square Venus
This square is often an indication of sexual or emotional attraction. Although squares are generally considered aspects of tension, in this case, the tension is likely to be expressed more as excitement or sexual tension. You are likely to have different tastes in music, clothing, entertainment and decor, but this can as easily be a positive difference as a negative, with each of you introducing the other to new things. You each bring different tangible and intangible items of worth, and somewhat different perspectives on values to the relationship. Whether these fulfill the other's needs depends more on the aspects and house positions of each of your Mars to the other's Venus.


Mars square Saturn
This is a problematic aspect that can cause great frustration between you. The Mars person is likely to feel held back and bossed around by the Saturn person, while the Saturn person may feel bullied or coerced into ill-considered action by the Mars person. You may find yourselves getting angry at each other often, and instead of clearing the air, you may seethe in silence, which only makes matters worse. There is the probability of a constant push-pull that makes it difficult to get anything done together. On the positive side, this aspect tends to teach you both something about how to achieve things with limited options. This is a lesson learned over time; it won't come quickly or easily. But, if you do learn this difficult lesson together, and have the maturity to apply it instead of blowing your cool, you can be a formidable team.


Mars sextile Neptune
Because Neptune spends so many years in each sign, everyone born within a few years of each other will have Neptune in more or less the same position. This sextile is therefore more significant as an indicator of the Mars person's response to an entire generation than as a trait in a one-to-one relationship. If the aspect is within a degree of exact, you can support each other and cooperate together in activities involving creativity, spirituality, charity (especially involving institutions of some sort) and idealism . You can also be an inspirational to one another.


Jupiter opposite Jupiter
This comparative aspect often indicates that you are from backgrounds that are in some way - culturally, educationally, religiously, or philosophically - almost complete opposites. However, this is usually a relatively easy bridge to gap, assuming that both of you are broad-minded, mature people, because Jupiter is the planet that symbolizes tolerance for backgrounds other than our own. You can, as a result, help to broaden each other's horizons and you're likely to be able to find common ground on cultural, philosophical and other deep issues. However, you may (because of the natural exuberance of Jupiter) encourage each other to excess and overly optimistic hopes, especially if the opposition is within a couple of degrees of exact. You may also have unrealistic expectations of each other or promise each other more than you can reasonably deliver.


Pluto trine Pluto
This is a generational aspect, and is not particularly significant in one-to-one relationships. For you to have this comparative aspect in your charts, there would have to be at least 65 years difference in your age. Your generations tend to hold compatible views or convictions on achievement, power, secretiveness and social reform.


Albert Einstein's Planets Aspecting Alicia C. Katz's Planets

Sun square Mercury
There is potential here for clashing due to a basic incompatibility between the Sun person's ego and need for self-assertion and the ideas and communications of the Mercury person. The Sun person may occasionally see what the Mercury person says or writes as something of a threat or challenge. However, this is unlikely to be a really problematic aspect unless there are several other, stronger negative factors in the chart comparison. If so, this square will aggravate them.


Sun opposite Uranus
This can indicate an exciting, stimulating friendship, with romantic possibilities, but stability may be lacking. You may clash occasionally over issues of freedom, self-expression and independence. You should give each other a lot of elbow room if you want to get the best from this combination.


Sun trine Neptune
As Neptune spends so many years in each sign, this trine is more significant as an indicator of the Sun person's response to an entire generation than as indication of one-to-one relationship traits. If the aspect is within a degree or so of exact, this can be a very romantic, spiritual and giving relationship with intuitive links between you.


Sun opposite Pluto
Because Pluto spends so many years in each sign, everyone born within a few years of each other will have Pluto in more or less the same position. This opposition is therefore more significant as an indication of the Sun person's response to an entire generation than as a trait in a one-to-one personal relationship. If the aspect is within a degree or so of exact, it can indicate that the relationship will be subject to power struggles, jealousy, resentment and manipulation.


Moon opposite Mercury
This comparative aspect can sometimes cause difficulties due to a clash of the Moon person's emotional and the Mercury person's intellectual responses to situations. There can be more than the usual miscommunication, misunderstanding and misinterpretation between you. However, there is a possibility, if you both work at it, that you will each be able to broaden your perspective if you make a conscious attempt to experience things according the other's frame of reference, rather than automatically dismissing the other's point of view.


Moon square Pluto
Because Pluto spends so many years in each sign, everyone born within a few years of each other will have Pluto in more or less the same position. This square is therefore more significant as an indication of the Moon person's response to an entire generation than as an indicator of one-to-one relationship traits. If the aspect is within a couple of degrees of exact, there can be emotional power trips, manipulation and attempts to control each other. Most often these will be initiated by the Pluto person.


Mercury square Mars
This tends to be one of the more argument prone combinations. You are each likely to stir the other's dander up over issues large and small and get into many disputes. There's a tendency to shoot your mouths off at one another without considering the consequences. If you're the kind of people who enjoy a good debate, this can make for a stimulating combination. However, if either of you needs harmony and agreement in order to feel comfortable, this tendency to challenge each other's ideas -- or to take every differing point of view as a challenge -- is likely to be annoying.


Mercury opposite Uranus
This can be an intellectually stimulating aspect. Each of you is likely to surprise the other with your point of view. You also tend to bring out the inventiveness in one another . You may find it difficult to relax in each other's company though, as this opposition tends to accentuate any predisposition to nervousness.


Venus conjunct Saturn
This aspect has the potential to be difficult, especially in romantic relationships. The Saturn person may be too parental and dour throwing a wet blanket on the Venus person's romanticism. The Venus person may seem too frivolous to the Saturn person and upset his or her sense of balance. Regardless of the above, many serious, stable, committed relationships with great staying power have this aspect. It tends to show a relationship where the partners show great loyalty to one another, even in the face of limitations and restrictions.


Venus opposite Ascendant
This operates more like a conjunction between the Venus person and the Ascendant person's seventh house, the house of marriage, partnership and other serious relationships. It is one of the better aspects for romantic, partnership and marital harmony, as one partner's Venus, the planet which shows what a person has to bring to a relationship, is in the other person's house of important relationships. As a result, each of you is likely to be attuned to the other's relationship needs. The Venus person is especially likely to go out of the way to meet those needs, but both of you should show signs of this trait.


Venus conjunct North Node
With this aspect in a synastry comparison you can reasonably assume that, regardless of what else may be going on, the North Node person is likely to feel fated, on some level, to be involved with the Venus person. That is not to say that you won't have to work at this relationship; you will. But the work you put in will pay off. Both of you are likely to feel connected in some essential way that is favorable for both love and friendship. There is also a tendency to operate harmoniously and symbiotically in social situations.


Mars trine Uranus
Dynamic relationships where there is a magnetic sexual attraction often have this comparative aspect. You are likely to enjoy many adventures with each other and to do things together that separately you might only daydream about. The Mars person can give the Uranus person the necessary boost in energy to actualize his or her inspired ideas; the Uranus person can show the Mars person how to direct his or herenthusiasm in creative and innovative ways.


Jupiter sextile Saturn
This sextile tends to produce relationships based on seriousness and high principles. You can support each other in achieving your individual and joint goals, especially those concerning business, education and ideals. The Jupiter person can help the Saturn person be more adventurous and open minded; the Saturn person can help the Jupiter person to focus, become more disciplined and get more accomplished.


Jupiter square Neptune
Because Neptune spends so many years in each sign, everyone born within a few years of each other will have Neptune in more or less the same position. This square is therefore more significant as an indicator of the Jupiter person's response to an entire generation than as an indication of one-to-one relationship traits. If the aspect is within a degree or so of exact, this is likely to be an idealistic, dreamy relationship that encourages you both to have unrealistic hopes and expectations of the other and to engage in impractical or irresponsible activities together.


Ascendant conjunct Midheaven
The Ascendant person can identify with what the Midheaven person is trying to achieve and the Midheaven person should be able to identify with the way the Ascendant person relates to the world. Often though, this understanding can be a reason for you two to feel competitive toward each other, unless other aspects soften this response.


Alicia C. Katz's Planets Aspecting Albert Einstein's Planets

Sun square Venus
This square is typically an indication of attraction, although there may be some friction. Yet, this friction is usually mild and may only add to the sexual tension between partners, which ain't all that bad. The Sun person's assertiveness may occasionally be felt as pushiness by the Venus person and the Venus person may sometimes seem oversensitive to the Sun person.


Sun square Saturn
This tends to be a difficult and frustrating combination. Each of you may feel like there is a wall between you that somehow, limits your ability to really get in touch with each other . The Sun person may feel restricted or burdened by the relationship with the Saturn person, even though he or she may very much want the relationship to continue and to work out. The Saturn person may feel his or her security or authority is threatened by the Sun person or the circumstances surrounding the relationship. These difficulties are not insurmountable, by any means, but they are sobering. If the relationship flourishes in spite of the problems, it can be both solid and enduring.


Sun sextile Neptune
Because Neptune spends so many years in each sign, everyone born within a few years of each other will have Neptune in more or less the same position. This sextile is therefore more significant as an indicator of the Sun person's response to an entire generation than as a trait in a one-to-one relationship. If the aspect is within a degree of exact, you are likely to be very supportive of each other's dreams and ideals. You can also bring out the charitable and benevolent side in each other.


Sun conjunct Ascendant
You are likely to immediately recognize aspects of yourself in the another, whether these traits are deep or superficial links will depend on other factors in the comparison of the charts. Your tendency to bring out and accentuate similarities in each other can either mean you're bringing out the best or the worst -- or maybe a bit of both in one another. You may feel a strong connection, but the danger is that your relationship may be focused on narrow issues and lack objectivity. You'll need an opposition or two between your charts, or some outside influences and interests, to get perspective on this pairing.


Moon oppositie Venus
This is likely to be an emotionally charged relationship, with the likelihood of romantic and/or sexual magnetism, and is a typical example of opposites attracting. There is the potential for oversensitivity and/or misunderstanding as you may each approach emotional situtations from opposite perspectives. You can, at different times, complement each other or clash; provide each other with the missing half of the puzzle or disagree strongly about what the whole should be. For the most part though, this opposition is more likely to bring a pleasant spark to your relationship rather than genuine friction.


Mercury trine Jupiter
This trine is usually an indication of intellectual rapport . It often indicates a relationship where one - usually the Jupiter person - is the teacher or mentor to the other. You're likely to make good traveling companions. You will probably also enjoy conversing with each other more than you might with others. With this aspect, it's best that you live in the same area code or you're likely to run up huge phone bills without even noticing.


Venus conjunct Ascendant
This is a favorable aspect for romantic relationships and marriages, and has the added benefit of stimulating the creative self-expression of each of you. The Venus person identifies with Ascendant person's self-image and the Ascendant person's feeling of self-worth is likely to be enhanced by interaction with Venus person. You are likely to share tastes in music, art or other forms of entertainment.


Mars conjunct Ascendant
Sometimes it's passionate, but sometimes the fever raised by this combination is simply a headache. This conjunction can make for instant attraction, but it can also inspire competitiveness between the two of you. Neither of you is likely to know exactly where and when to put the brakes on. There is the potential for too great an emphasis on taking action, without enough thought given to the outcome of that action. This can lead to conflict between you, especially if you're prone to placing blame on each other when something goes wrong.


Jupiter conjunct Uranus
This aspect is apt to give relationships a stimulating, free-wheeling quality. You may inspire each other to try new things and take chances that you may not take alone -- and you can probably get away with it assuming other chart factors are not heavily weighted against this. The potential negatives: the Uranus person may at times be a bit too "way out" for the Jupiter person, and the Jupiter person may seem too traditionally oriented to the Uranus person.


Jupiter trine Neptune
Because Neptune spends so many years in each sign, this trine is more significant as an indicator of the Jupiter person's response to an entire generation than as an indication of one-to-one relationship traits. If the aspect is within a degree or so of exact, it can bring a very benevolent, generous, idealistic and tolerant relationship that enriches both of you. Spiritual, religious and idealogical compatibility are probable with this trine.


Uranus trine Pluto
This is a generational aspect, and is not particularly significant in one-to-one relationships . Members of your respective generations usually hold compatible views on issues of social change, scientific research, and spiritual/religious search for meaning.


Neptune opposite Pluto
This aspect occurs between all those born in each of two generations and has virtually no significance in one-to-one relationships.


Pluto opposite Midheaven
There can be quite a bit of psychological upheaval in this relationship, with much of the drama played out on the domestic scene. An intense emotional and family situation is likely, especially if the aspect is close to exact . Pluto here can have either a constructive or destructive effect on the careers of both partners, but especially on the Midheaven person. The two of you may also find yourselves in a subtle struggle for control on the domestic front.


Part Two -- Planets in Houses
This section is concerned with where the planets of one partner fall in the houses of the other, also known as comparative house placement. For instance, if you have 12 degrees Cancer rising (also known as Cancer Ascendant or Cancer on the first house cusp) and your partner has Moon in 15 degrees Cancer, your partner's Moon falls in your first house. Your experience of your partner's emotions, family and moods (Moon) will influence how you see yourself (Ascendant). In comparative house placement analysis, the planets generally have a greater impact on the houses than the houses do on the planets. In other words, where your partner's planets fall in your houses is a better indication of how you experience him or her than vice-versa. And where your planets fall in his or her houses will tell more about how he or she experiences you.


Alicia C. Katz's Planets in Albert Einstein's Houses

HOUSE ONE
This is the house of self expression. The sign on the cusp of this house is called your rising sign or Ascendant. It shows your self image, the face you show the world and how others see you. The image you present can either be quite close to or very different from the inner you, depending on whether your Ascendant is in a sign that is similar or different in characteristics to the signs your Sun and Moon are in. When the planets of your partner or another fall into this, your most personal house, you will relate to the energies of that person, represented by those planets, in a very personal and immediate way; there may be a kind of instant recognition between you in these areas. For instance, if the Mercury of another person (which rules communications, short trips, thoughts, worries, and work, among other issues) falls into your first house, you may find that you instantly recognize, and/or identify with, the ways that person communicates or the ideas he or she has.


Sun in House 1
You are likely to feel an immediate identification with each other; more so the closer the Sun is to the Ascendant. The Sun person can strongly influence the self-image and ego expression of the first house person and this may challenge the Ascendant person to be more assertive. Although not, by itself, an indication of sexual attraction, the Sun of one partner in the first house of the other indicates that you two can think and act as one in many circumstances, thus supporting any relationship you form together.


Venus in House 1
This placement is highly favorable for romantic relationships and is a good indication of attraction. You are likely to identify with each other emotionally, and to feel an instant affinity with each other, especially if Venus is within a couple of degrees of the first house cusp. The first house person's self-image can be enhanced by association with the Venus person. The first house person is also likely to have any artistic, asthetic or musical activities he or she is engaged in, enhanced by association with the Venus person.


HOUSE THREE
The third house is involved in communication, basic schooling and training, siblings, neighborhood, community activities and extended family. When another person's planets fall in your third house, the energies symbolized by those planets will have an impact on the issues of the house. For instance, if a friend's Venus (the planet of romance, relationship, emotion, art, luxury, among other things) falls in your third house, your emotional response toward this person might be in some way similar to what you would feel toward a sibling, or you might communicate emotionally with one another.


Jupiter in House 3
The Jupiter person can help the third house person expand his or her intellectual, educational and communication horizons, and to add depth to his or her ideas. The third house person can keep the Jupiter person on track with details and organization when the Jupiter person begins to get too expansive or scattered. You tend to be good traveling companions and are likely to enjoy discussions and other forms of communication with each other.


HOUSE FOUR
The fourth house rules the home, real estate, your mother (and your mothering instincts), as well as home, domestic and family situations in general. It is also the house ruling your final resting place. Those whose planets fall in your fourth house will affect you on a deep level, and may arouse your protective and nurturing instincts. If the Sun, Moon, Venus, Jupiter or Ascendant of another falls in your fourth house, you may make good housemates or domestic partners.


Moon in House 4
This is a particularly favorable placement for those living under the same roof. There is probably a strong identification between you on an emotional level, with the potential for great empathy, or even an intuitive link. You can nurture each other and be protective of one another, but you can also exacerbate each other's moodiness. You're likely to depend on each other for emotional security and may retreat into a cocoon together -- in a kind of "you and me against the world" response -- when things aren't going your way.


Uranus in House 4
The Uranus person is likely to have a disruptive effect on the fourth house person's feelings, domestic situation or family relationships. If you share living quarters, something about the home is likely to be untraditional, eccentric or innovative; or there may be sudden changes of residence. The Uranus person may have an unconventional or unusual relationship with the fourth house person's mother.


Pluto in House 4
The Pluto person can be a powerful force for change in the fourth house person's domestic situation. This is likely to be an intense emotional involvement if Pluto also closely aspects the fourth house person's personal planets. If there are major hard aspects from Pluto to the fourth house person's chart, there may be power struggles between the Pluto person and the fourth house person's mother.


HOUSE FIVE
Some astrologers refer to the fifth as the party house, and it's an apt description. The fifth house presides over entertainment and fun of all kinds; including romance, gambling, parties, creativity and pleasure in general. It is also the house of children, and may describe certain traits of your first child. When the planets of another fall into your fifth house, the energies of these planets will have an affect on what you do, think and feel about fifth house issues. If someone's Sun falls into your fifth house, for instance, you may be attracted to that person as a romantic partner or as someone to simply go out and have good times with.


Neptune in House 5
You will probably share a love of similar art, music and entertainment. In fact, in many ways, this relationship may seem like a romantic dream come true, especially for the fifth house person. But it may or may not be what it seems. There is the potential for this to be a strong idealistic romance, but also the potential for disillusionment, deception, unrequited love or loss through this relationship. Which side of the equation will manifest depends on aspects between Neptune and the fifth house person's planets.


HOUSE ELEVEN
Friends, acquaintances, associates, associations, clubs, and virtually any other group you feel a part of are all matters related to the eleventh house. This is also the house governing your hopes, wishes and professional values (personal values are matters of the second house). When someone else's planets fall here in your chart, the energies of those planets will affect your reactions to eleventh house issues. For instance, if a friend's Pluto, the planet of power, falls in your eleventh, your association with that person can potentially bring you greater power and control.


Saturn in House 11
The Saturn person can help the eleventh house person to work with discipline and care toward realizing practical goals. The Saturn person can also provide networking opportunities which can further the eleventh house person's ambitions. There is the possibility that you will both feel part of a larger group that works toward some serious purpose. There is a slight potential that one of you may have entered into this relationship with ulterior motives, but only if other factors, such as major harsh aspects from Saturn to planets in the eleventh house, support this. Hard aspects from Saturn also sometimes indicate that the Saturn person, intentionally or unintentionally, may limit the eleventh house person's interactions with friends and associates.


HOUSE TWELVE
This is the house of illusion, where things are not quite what they seem. Secrets, ideals, deception and self-deception, dreams, drugs, chronic illness, institutions and intuition are all matters of the twelfth house. Older astrology texts call this the house of self-undoing, but this is probably too negative a reading in most cases. It is true, though, that it is difficult to get a clear picture of what is going on in this house; so the energies of any planets of another person that fall into your twelfth are likely to be harder for you to understand than those falling in other houses. If, for instance, someone's Venus falls in your twelfth, you may find it difficult to see that person's flaws and you may respond to the person as if he or she were your ideal mate, whether or not this is objectively realistic.


Mercury in House 12
You may have some difficulty understanding each other's ideas in a purely intellectual way. However, this placement often compensates for the above by making it easier for you to communicate with, or understand each other on a subconscious or intuitive level. This placement often shows that the communications between you connect you in ways that are not apparent to others. The Mercury person's words can stimulate the twelfth house person's intuitive senses, but may also inspire feelings of guilt, uncertainty, and martyrdom. There is also the possibility of dissembling or outright deception in this relationship, especially if there are harsh major aspects between Mercury and the twelfth house person's planets.


Mars in House 12
This can be a problematic placement as Mars needs to be direct and the energy of the twelfth house is generally vague and indirect. The Mars person can stimulate the twelfth house person to be more active in charitable and creative affairs. There is a slight danger of victimization or psychological cruelty, especially if there are major harsh aspects from Mars to the twelfth house person's chart.

HOUSE THREE
The third house is involved in communication, basic schooling and training, siblings, neighborhood, community activities and extended family. When another person's planets fall in your third house, the energies symbolized by those planets will have an impact on the issues of the house. For instance, if a friend's Venus (the planet of romance, relationship, emotion, art, luxury, among other things) falls in your third house, your emotional response toward this person might be in some way similar to what you would feel toward a sibling, or you might communicate emotionally with one another.


Moon in House 3
There is likely to be a great deal of communication between you about feelings, domestic matters and day-to-day happenings. The Moon person's emotional responses may have powerful effect on third house person's ideas; likewise, the third house person's words can influence the Moon person's moods and feelings. There is some potential for getting bogged down in talk about trivial matters.


HOUSE FOUR
The fourth house rules the home, real estate, your mother (and your mothering instincts), as well as home, domestic and family situations in general. It is also the house ruling your final resting place. Those whose planets fall in your fourth house will affect you on a deep level, and may arouse your protective and nurturing instincts. If the Sun, Moon, Venus, Jupiter or Ascendant of another falls in your fourth house, you may make good housemates or domestic partners.


Mars in House 4
The Mars person has the potential to stir up or upset the fourth house person's family or domestic situation and feelings. This is often a difficult placement for those living under the same roof as the Mars person can be selfish or argumentative about shared domestic responsibilites. The placement works best when you're doing something active regarding home or real estate together.


HOUSE FIVE
Some astrologers refer to the fifth as the party house, and it's an apt description. The fifth house presides over entertainment and fun of all kinds; including romance, gambling, parties, creativity and pleasure in general. It is also the house of children, and may describe certain traits of your first child. When the planets of another fall into your fifth house, the energies of these planets will have an affect on what you do, think and feel about fifth house issues. If someone's Sun falls into your fifth house, for instance, you may be attracted to that person as a romantic partner or as someone to simply go out and have good times with.


Jupiter in House 5
With this placement, each of you is likely to get genuine joy from the company of the other. You will enjoy similar cultural, artistic and musical entertainment and are likely to expand each other's appreciation of various art forms. The Jupiter person can bring the fifth house person luck when taking calculated risks, unless there are negative major aspects from Jupiter to the fifth house person's chart. There is a slight potential that you will over indulge in pleasurable activities together.


HOUSE SIX
The morning after the partying of the fifth house, you've got to get back down to business, and that's what the sixth house is about. It rules work, health, service, worries, diet, dress, personal habits and other mundane, but necessary details of life. When someone else's planets fall into your sixth house, the energies of those planets will affect the way you respond to the above sixth house issues. If, for instance, someone's Saturn is in your sixth house, he or she might be an authority (Saturn rules authority figures) who you consult about health, such as a doctor; or he or she might be your boss at work.


Sun in House 6
With this comparative placement, the emphasis is often placed on work, health, dress and appearance. The Sun person can have a significant effect on the sixth house person and stimulate him or her to attempt a variety of self-improvement activities. The Sun person can have positive effect on the sixth house person's health and/or work.


Mercury in House 6
There are both positive and negative potentials to this placement. On the positive side, the Mercury person's ideas can influence the sixth house person to achieve better health, physical fitness and/or fashion sense. On the negative side, each of you can be excessively critical of the other. This placement tends to be more favorable for partnerships that deal in details and organization, provided other chart factors support it.


Saturn in House 6
The Saturn person can help the sixth house person focus on occupational responsibilities, but there may be too much emphasis on obligation and not enough on relaxation. This tends to promote an all work and no play scenario. It can occasionally indicate that restrictions or other problems in the relationship cause a detrimental effect on the sixth house person's nerves or digestion, but usually only if other factors support this.


HOUSE SEVEN
The seventh, also known as the Descendant, is the house of marital and other partners. It is exactly opposite the first house, which represents you. As the old saying goes: opposites attract. The seventh is also the first of the houses above the horizon in your chart, and is the beginning of that part of the chart which represents your dealings with the public. When the planets of another person are in this house, the energies of those planets will have an impact on your seventh house issues. For instance, if someone's Moon is in your seventh, that person's emotional make-up and nurturing instincts are likely to be in sync with those you would want in a partner.


Venus in House 7
This is a very favorable placement for romantic partnerships and is a strong indication of serious attraction. Each of you probably fulfills the other's needs on some deep emotional level -- more so the closer Venus is to the seventh house cusp. The Venus person is likely to go out of his or her way to cater to seventh house person's desires.


Neptune in House 7
A relationship with this placement may seem like a dream come true, and sometimes it is just that; but sometimes it's just that you see each other as you want your mate to be, not as he or she is. There is the potential here for over-idealism, unrealistic expectations and disillusionment. Sometimes, the Neptune person will find it just a bit too easy to pull the wool over the seventh house person's eyes, and this may be too tempting to resist for all but the most principled of partners. There is also the potential for a happily ever after marriage of the sort that they claim is made in heaven. Favorable aspects between each person's Saturn and the other person's chart can help immensely by stabilizing the relationship and injecting a bit of reality into the fairy tale.


HOUSE EIGHT
The eighth house deals with a host of intense and weighty issues: death, obsessions, repression, jealousy, taxes, joint resources, inheritances and other people's possessions. It also represents what you want or need sexually. When someone else's planets fall in your eighth house, the energies of those planets will have an impact on how you think, feel and act concerning eighth house issues. If, for instance, your rich old Great-Uncle Harry's Jupiter falls in your eighth house, he might bequeath you a generous inheritance in his will.


Pluto in House 8
This is Pluto's natural house and its position here intensifies its effect. This placement can indicate that relationship concerns itself with Plutonian issues including joint resources, sex, death and inheritance, and transformation. There is likely to be a lot brewing beneath the surface with Pluto in this position, and there may be some subtle, unacknowledged power struggles as well.


HOUSE ELEVEN
Friends, acquaintances, associates, associations, clubs, and virtually any other group you feel a part of are all matters related to the eleventh house. This is also the house governing your hopes, wishes and professional values (personal values are matters of the second house). When someone else's planets fall here in your chart, the energies of those planets will affect your reactions to eleventh house issues.
