Not that I'm aware of either. A composite chart isn't a real horoscope as there's no data for an input and some rather odd and impossible aspects can show up in them. However, to do something concerning transits with composites, you'd just have to have the composite chart up and then a chart of the transits for the time period you're interested in. Then you just kind of merge them with your mind.
"Neptune's at 19° Aquarius...where is that in the composite?" Something like that.
Or you could switch to a Davison chart, which is a real horoscope to which transits can be applied using programs, as Davisons have input data and whatnot.

astrodienst has the transit chart for 6 months/3 years etc and i find it sooo useful for looking at my natal. But what i really wan tto see is the same thing for a composite. Is there another program that can do it? or somewhere on astrodienst that i didnt see?
If you have a program like Kepler, what I do is create a natal chart for "now". I then create the composite chart with the people charts I need and use a bi-wheel listing with the composite in the inside and transit on the outside, and all the aspects to it in the grid. Works fine.

No, unfortunately it's not free. The other program I use, Astrolog, is free, but you can't do a composite and transit at the same time. Why can't you buy anything online? Kepler should ship to anywhere.

Not sure if this is what you meant ... but astro.com actually has transits for composite charts as well. Just enter the start date for which you want the transits drawn up in the extended chart selection and then have the composite chart drawn up. Above the chart on the right hand side it says "with transits" ... click on this link and you'll have your composite chart with the transits for the date you specified.
It's really very simple. You have the composite chart? On any site that gives free charts, put in todays date as the birth date. Take those planetary positions and put them, by hand, on the composite chart (which she should have already written out in your own hand.... it's easier to read that way....just leave out the lines and extraneous bodies)....................
So you put the planets of today on the composite chart and those are the transits.
IF you are interested in astrology on a long term basis, go to your bookstore or go online if you prefer, and buy a softcover copy of an ephemeris, for dates 2000-2050. Or 2001-2050 if it's the American Ephemeris for the 21st Century by Neil Michelsen... (midnight = 0 hour, which is what most astrologers use now.
Then just look up ANY date and that's the transit. Ephemerides are calculated at Greenwich England, so the moon might be a few degrees off, but in a composite chart transit, the moon is a bit less important than in a natal chart.
If what i said isn't clear, let me know.
