Composite & Asteroids ... some interesting aspect patterns
First, see the attached composite chart below. These are 5 degree orbs at the outside w/ lights (far less with asteroids/points/nodes).
Now, the reason I'm posting this is because of the aspect *patterns*. I'm not sure whether to give them any weight, as they don't involve only planets/points. But there are 2 in particular that made me sit up and take note: the Grand Trine, and the Minor Grand Trine.
And yes, I note the Jupiter opposition to Uranus (and Pluto). The Moon-Saturn conjunction (albeit in the 4th house, which isn't the worst placement for that -- note the Cap ascendant), and the Mars-Pluto square (this worries me most, although I've never seen any evidence of it in their actual interaction; easy aspects seem [at present] to trump it).
Lots of 9th house/3rd house activity, so lots of *mental* energy here, which fits. VERY tight Sun-Venus conjunction with looser Mercury involved in that, very tight Jupiter-N.Node conjunction. (Ironically, knowing the people involved, the Moon-Saturn conjunction may be more plus than minus, although I wouldn't say that for most.)
BUT, what I wanted to ask about ... the two trine aspect patterns.
I threw in the Vertex, Juno, and PofF for fun on a run through Astrodeinst ... and got this chart. NORMALLY, I pay little to no attention to asteroids, Parts, or the nodes unless in conjunction or opposition. But I looked at this and started scratching my head. Some of this may be knowing the pair involved. First ... the Grand Trine involving the 7th house PofF with Jupiter and Neptune: both these individuals are inspired *teachers*. It's what drew them together, and what they seem to share as a "mission." And in totally NON-astrological terms, if a couple doesn't have a "mission" together (even if only raising healthy kids), their relationship will die on the vine, sooner or later. Relationships (like individuals) require a *mission*, and when I glanced at this chart, the Jupiter-Neptune-PofF seemed to embody a "mission" for this pair: their vocation. Teaching in such a way as to inspire their students (and helping each other in that).
Agree? Thoughts? I know it's a *part*, not a planet, but I found it interesting.
Second, the Minor-grand Trine involving that really tight Sun-Venus conjunction at the point with Juno on one side the composite Vertex on the other. It's as if they are being told, "Get it together as a pair and get married already." Note, they are currently only very close friends, although those watching wonder what game they're playing with each other. ;P Again, I'm aware of the Uranus oppositions throwing instability in there, and the Saturn-Moon thing adding a certain coldness, or at least "seriousness." The 9th house emphasis suggests, "It's all in our head." Then I see this Minor-Grand Trine involving 9th, 11th, and *7th* with their Vertex there. (They met, btw, via a group of friends, and they became especially close/the Sun-Venus "love" aspect via their teaching.)
It's like this chart is at war with itself -- which is why I find it interesting. A slow, steady bloomer rather than "lightning strikes"? I've seen few composite charts with such a close Sun-Venus conjunction. I know the aspect isn't "uncommon" as Sun and Venus are never that far apart, but at that tight *degree*, they seem to be. I checked this one against all my marriage composites and it's closer than ANY of those. (Then again, I know Sun-Venus is just "love," not passion.)
I tend to give aspect *patterns* as much or more weight than strong interplanetary aspects. BUT I'm just not sure how much weight to give aspect patterns involving "soft" aspects when they involve asteroids and parts, not planets or cardinal points.
What do y'all make of these 2 particular aspect patterns? Pay attention, or ignore?
