The composite chart is created by taking the midpoint between pairs of each of two person’s natal planets (in this case Venus and Uranus) and using them to create a third, new 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.
Jupiter symbolises key areas of growth for the relationship as well as how the partners to that relationship find meaning together. Composite Jupiter also provides a shared spiritual commitment – an inspired, optimistic vision for the future. The trick is not to go overboard.
Neptune brings magic, colour, and soul into a relationship, shared creativity and beguilingly beautiful dreams. The problem with Neptune is that is that doesn’t play by ordinary rules. Hence Neptune is oft associated with disappointment, deceit, and disillusion.
Both Jupiter and Neptune share a taste for the boundless. They are the signature of the dreamer/visionary with a foolhardy naivety about the ‘real world’. When Neptune is involved in a composite chart, there is bound to be a sense of being soul-mates and hence it is all the harder to put on the brakes.
Neptune/ Jupiter is likely to manifest in a shared spiritual or idealistic vision that unfortunately might turn out to be pure delusion:
This is especially the case with the conjunction.
With trines and sextiles the idealism is not likely to be as destructive although it can turn a romance into something more platonic like a student/teacher relationship.
With the square, it is important to ensure both parties know where they stand with each other and avoid reluctance to acknowledge relationship problems.
The opposition is also likely to allow both parties to build up a false sense of security. The key with making this aspect work out is to avoid idealizing each other. Equally important is to avoid playing deceptive games with each other. If you honestly understand yourselves and what you have to together, there can be no illusion. If you don’t, you’re likely headed for disaster.
