Comparing charts of twins
I'm certain this topic has been touched upon in other threads, but I just wanted to throw in something which I'd figured out about some twins, in particular, non-identical twins.
I've always been somewhat twins-obsessed. I've taught heaps of twins, most of them identical, and have always been blown away by how different they are from each other. That is, the differences seem to outweigh the similarities.
I'm currently doing a written reading for the fraternal twin of a woman whose reading I did a couple of months ago. What I'm finding interesting is that even though they were born only minutes apart, and have very similar charts, they each express totally different parts of their charts. She is the achiever, the professional, the `success', while her fraternal twin is the extremely sensitive one, with some mental problems (due mainly to his extreme level of sensitivity) and a far more childlike view of the world. The interesting thing is that both these expressions are found within each chart. The key to it seems to be a T-square between Uranus opp Moon, both square Cap sun. She channels this energy into her Cap sun, while he flounders around with the Uranus, but manages to reach a deeper place than his twin.
I have this theory that sometimes there is too much in one chart for one person to deal with, so twins are born to express different levels of what is essentially the same astrological profile. This puts this observation in the area of spiritual astrology, I guess.
Has anyone noticed a similar thing with twins?
