A Fiery Duo – Independent Leo Lady & Aries Man

One look at this Leo lady’s chart and it’s obvious she is someone to be reckoned with . . . Sun conjunct Saturn in Leo and Scorpio Rising. She is in a relationship with an Aries man and wishes to make it last. Her independent nature is underlined by Uranus in Scorpio (Rising sign) squaring her Sun (Leo’s ruler). I am going to take a quick look at how her Sun and Mars are aspected in her chart because those two planets rule her Ascendant and her Sun sign.

Since we’re talking Leo here, I’ll look at the aspects to her Sun first. It comes as no surprise to find the closest aspect to her Sun is a sextile from her Mars in Gemini, adding to her abundant energy. And the next closest is a sextile from Pluto, co-ruler of Scorpio – underlining the theme of this being a very forceful individual. A trine from Neptune in Sagittarius located in her first house lends a measure of elusive charm and softens the edges of her Sun/Uranus square. This adds up to a woman who needs a partner who is capable of appreciating her strong and decisive nature while allowing her lots of latitude.

Her Mars falls in her 7th House and is trine to Pluto and opposed by Neptune. Often a planet in the 7th represents the type of person we are attracted too, and with Mars there, an Aries is a natural choice. With Neptune involved, I anticipate a certain romanticism and illusive quality projected on potential partners too. Mars in Gemini squares her Mercury in Virgo located in the 10th house, so her mind is very keen and penetrating.

For the most part their synastry is OK using the shorthand method – Sun/Moon in Leo and Sun in Aries semi-sextile Moon in Pisces, Mercury’s complement one another, Moons possibly inconjunct which may mean sharing a home could have its awkward moments and their chemistry from Mars to Venus is so so. However there are good parallels: Both have Fire Suns, their Venuses are sextile as are their Mars, off setting some of the other aspects.

To me the most fascinating synastry aspect involves his Venus conjuncting her Taurus Descendant. Venus in his chart is dynamically aspected by all the outer planets, in fact Venus is far more heavily aspected than his Aries Sun! His Venus is the focus of a Yod with inconjuncts to Pluto sextile Neptune and opposed by Uranus falling roughly at the midpoint between Pluto and Neptune. Saturn in Virgo is trine his Venus. Without an accurate birth time for him, we don’t know where Venus falls in his chart but I’m betting it’s some place significant. In essence, this suggests to me in this particular relationship, he will be the yielding Venusian partner bringing subtlety and richness to their interactions as a couple. Her Saturn is square to his Venus adding the possibility of durability here.

A couple of other synastry aspects of importance are his Uranus conjunct her Ascendant – instant attraction – and his North Node in Leo/Mars in Leo conjunct her mid-heaven. Both have a lot to do with the attractive draw between these two and a certain fated quality.

Will this be a lasting relationship for them? Well, she is past her Saturn Return and he’s coming up on his within the next year and that’s a plus. If they are both comfortable with her being the assertive partner, then I see a good outcome here. Best wishes to the two of them!

This is The Sun card from the Lover’s Path tarot deck. I choose it because the Sun is Leo’s ruler but this particular card seemed to fit in other ways too . . . ::grin::

    Hi Neith,

    Fascinating post. I love your synastry posts, I always wait in anticipation for them.

    I was just curious about you meant about the Yod. She is the focus of a Yod with inconjuncts to Pluto sextile Neptune and opposed by Uranus falling roughly at the midpoint between Pluto and Neptune.

    Do you mean one of her planets creates a yod with his outer planets? I would be interested to know your thoughts on what that means.

    Thanks, DM . . . :-D Synastry never fails to amaze me.

    oops, my bad. i didn’t explain that very clearly but his Venus is the “She” i was referring too, and the point of the Yod (two inconjuncts & a sextile). I’m no expert on the Yod configuration but always deem any planet with that much energy focused on has to be important. And in their synastry, where his Venus falls on her Descendant – that’s a hot spot for sure!

    Good to hear you are enjoying my synastry posts, Skye. I’ve got a couple more in the works – requests from readers.

    oooh now I get! Thanks neith that totally makes sense.

    Great post cant wait to hear for the next ones!

  • Aliza

    I’m impressed by your astrology Neith! Much to learn from you :)

    I am wondering what you think about this though: I was writing on my own blog about my relationship having a lot of “squares” and someone commented about squares being the “glue.”

    Now I know we need a little of it all, but what do you think when there are more squares than any other aspect (when comparing the two).

    Thanks in advance for your insight!

    Hi Aliza! Whether having a lot of squares in synastry works can depend on how much the two of you enjoy a good challenge as individuals. A strong, forthright Cardinal type may love it but a more sensitive peaceful sort find it overwhelming.

    If you wish more personal feedback, feel free to send me the birth data at neithnet@gmail.com and I can either write a post for you or a report . . .

    Thanks for your kind words about my blog!! :-D

    Hey there! :) I’m Leo chick in question. Thanks for your interpretation, Neith. I have to agree with alot of what she’s said; it’s amazing. Although…Im not sure what a Yod is? And is it formed when our charts are put together? Or he just has it all along? Any input anyone? Thanks! :)

    The Yod (or Boomerang – Uranus sits at the midpoint between Pluto & Neptune and opposes Venus)is in his chart. It connects your chart because his Venus is conjunct your Descendant – and his Uranus fall in your first House conjuncting your Ascendant. Here is a link to a site with more information on Yods & Boomerangs: Boomerang & Yods

    anyone else with more ideas or info on Yods, feel free to add your thoughts! :-)
