Composite vs. Synastry
What´s the difference? I read on some sites that composite could possibly interpret the *outcome* of a relationship? If that is true, anyone want to volunteer to help me with my composite? :61:

A composite chart is essentially, one chart made from the midpoints between the planets of the two individual charts. It is therefore, a chart of the relationship as if the relationship were one body.

A synastry demonstrates how the two people interact or how they affect each other.

Welcome :)

As to stating that either method can “predict the outcome,” I say “humbug.”

A composite will reveal the same kinds of strengths and weaknesses, temptations and proclivities as any natal chart.

We´ve all referred to a couple as if they were one person: "Sara and Andy are kinda quirky, aren´t they? Interesting how they always glom on to the most esoteric stuff…”

Perhaps Sara and Andy have a composite Aquarius rising? Neptune on the Midheaven? :)

I see

Would you say that maybe a composite would be how others see your relationship then? Or..?

The ascendant in a composite chart would be how others see the relationship.

The composite chart is, itself a picture of the relationship: for example, the Mercury placement would indicate how the relationship communicates, Jupiter would indicate where the relationship´s expansiveness can be found...

Make sense?
