The composite chart is created by taking the midpoint between pairs of each of two person’s natal planets (in this case Moon and Pluto) and using them to create a new, third chart. The composite chart is not the same as synastry, which examines how one person impacts the other. Instead the composite chart represents the relationship as a whole giving insight into the dynamics upon which it, as a relationship, functions.
The composite Moon represents the heart of the relationship, the feeling aspect, the emotional guts and glue. Unlike the composite Sun, which expresses the more conscious purpose of the relationship, the composite Moon operates unconsciously, feeding the relationship with that which it needs to continue. The placement of, and aspects made to, the composite Moon symbolise that which the individuals party to the relationship feel they share in common. Likewise, the composite Moon indicates where, and how, the relationship manifests emotional distress.
Pluto is the planet of death and regeneration. Hence composite Pluto suggests that which will cause the relationship to experience periods of heavy change. In any relationship, composite Pluto is often experienced as power plays and in sexual relationships, it gives special power to, and impact on, the emotions of the involved individuals. Let’s be very clear about this – with composite Pluto these emotions are never one-sided. Both parties experience (and will be forced to react to) the powerful drama enfolding between them. Composite Pluto shows how each of them will be personally transformed by the relationship.
Composite Moon conjunct Pluto is extremely intense. There can be nothing casual about the relationship with this aspect. It is likely to plunge each of the involved individuals into emotional depths which they have never (and may never again) experienced. This may make them feel (alternatively) deliriously happy and wretched. With Pluto involved, nothing will ever be shallow. This composite aspect often manifests in a codependent relationship generating excessive reliance of one party upon the other to obtain his/her personal self-esteem and/or identity.
It will be extremely difficult to walk away from a relationship with Composite Moon conjunct Pluto. At best, there will be an intense and enduring love between the parties. At worst, it will tear them apart. Feelings (on both sides) about this relationship will often run so high that it will difficult to rationally evaluate it. Remember that composite Pluto usually manifests in power plays and with composite Pluto conjunct Moon, these power plays will likely result in attempts to control each other’s feelings.
Advice: Lighten up, take it easy, enjoy each other calmly and quietly once in awhile. Keep plenty of personal space, maintain separate interests, and try extra hard not to always push each other’s emotional buttons.
