I wasn't quite sure whether I should create this new thread in the Natal and Predictive Astrology Forum
or in Other Branches of Astrology
, but because synastry involves the comparison of two natal chart, I decided that this board should be a safe bet. Anyway, I recently stumbled upon a synastry chart between my brother and I that I had created a while ago, and wondered if anyone here could help me interpret it. This is especially important to me because, as many of you may be aware of already, my brother suffers from autism and verbal communication between us is extremely limited. I would love to receive some astrological insight into our relationship and perhaps, one day, understand why he chose to enter this incarnation with such a heart-wrenching disability.
Something that immediately grabbed my attention was our conjunct natal Mercury...I find this extremely peculiar due to the nature of our situation. Yet they are almost EXACTLY conjunct each other, closer than any other two bodies in our synastry chart with the possible exception of my Uranus conjunct his Neptune. I know that this is significant, but I am having difficult determining what this symbolism may indicate. I thank you all in advance for taking the time to study this chart!
EDIT: Here is our updated synastry chart.
