The Compatibility Report for
Birth Data for James:
18 July 1940
Los Angeles, California
Birth Data for Barbra:
24 April 1942
Brooklyn, N.Y.C., NY
This Lovers Report is divided into 4 chapters.
Chapter 1 compares your temperaments and personalities. The issues described in Chapter 1 become particularly powerful if you are married or live together. Idiosyncrasies or quirks in another person’s personality do not bother us as much if our relationship is a casual one. For example, if one person is neat and tidy and the other is sloppy, this is more likely to become a concern if you are married than if you are only seeing each other occasionally.
Pay close attention to the issues described in Chapter 2 because these are the most important themes in your relationship. For example, if themes of romance and sexual attraction are emphasized, then you can count on this relationship being a passionate one. However, if romance and sexuality are hardly mentioned at all, then this relationship will not be a passionate one. Note also that the material in Chapter 2 is presented roughly in order of importance, so that the material presented at the beginning of Chapter 2 is the most powerful.
Chapter 4 describes issues in your relationship of less importance than those presented in Chapter 2. Chapter 3 describes situations and circumstances that arise if you have a close, long-lasting relationship.
If a statement appears to contradict another statement, then your roles are likely to alternate. For example, a statement that James is more aggressive than Barbra, and another statement that Barbra is more aggressive than James, means that you alternate roles, with James sometimes being the leader and Barbra being the follower, and sometimes just the opposite. Also, read the statements carefully, as it is likely that a careful reading will reveal different kinds of aggressiveness or areas in which the aggressiveness is likely to express itself.
To make the most of this report, combine this astrological analysis with other things that you know about each other. For example, we have assumed that you are opposite-sexed (assuming that both of you are heterosexual, otherwise same-sexed). Physical attractiveness, age, religion, education, family and cultural background will affect your relationship as well. The material in Chapters 2, 3, and 4 of this report describes the magnetism between you, but does not describe your individual natures. For example, suppose that Chapter 2 makes little mention of romance and sexuality, but the Natal Reports for each of you indicate that each of you has extremely strong romantic and sexual desires. In this case, marriage is not likely to be successful! However, if romance and sexuality are not important to either of you, then the lack of passion in your relationship is not likely to be as much of a stumbling block.

A Comparison of Temperaments and Life Styles
that Affect Your Ability to Harmonize with Each Other
James’s Sun in Cancer and Barbra’s Sun in Taurus:
Both of you are very domestic and appreciate the simple joys of life. Others find the two of you to be very warm, friendly, and caring, and your soft and considerate attitude is greatly appreciated by your friends. If you have children, then you are very dedicated and involved parents. The two of you would enjoy living in a quiet, fairly secluded place away from hustle and bustle. James is very emotional, very attached to family and familiar surroundings and easily upset by any form of cruelty; Barbra’s practical, grounded approach to life and gentle manner is very much appreciated by James.
James’s Moon in Capricorn and Barbra’s Moon in Leo:
James’s essentially sober, conservative, and cautious disposition contrasts with Barbra’s exuberant, generous, dramatic temperament. Barbra’s tastes are lavish, bold, and colorful, while James prefers a subdued, simple, quietly elegant style.
Whereas James downplays emotions and emotional displays, Barbra often exaggerates them. Like a child, Barbra is eager for attention, love, praise, and recognition from others, while James, ever the adult, rarely admits needing people in that way. James is, or appears to be, more self-sufficient emotionally. While Barbra is usually quite warm and personable, James is frequently detached, formal, and businesslike with people. For James, sharing is shown by dedication and faithfulness or by practical assistance – “actions, not words”, and Barbra sometimes craves more warm attention from James.
Also, Barbra is more of an optimist by nature, whereas James tends towards pessimism or at least a clear-eyed realism. Barbra’s cheerfulness can lighten James’s mood when James becomes too serious (which is frequently).
Major Themes in the Relationship: What Brought You Together
Barbra’s Moon Conjunct James’s Mars:
There is a dynamic, almost aggressive quality to your relationship. A good outlet for this energy is competitive sports and outdoor activities. You enjoy challenging each other and competing against one another. You also have the ability to accomplish a great deal together and make a dynamic working partnership – as long as you can refrain from arguing with each other. Sexual and physical attraction is also very strong and “hot”. If your sexual relationship is not satisfactory, you begin arguing with each other; in this relationship, frustrated sexuality turns to anger. Assuming that there are no physical impediments, the potential for becoming pregnant is high, so it is essential to be scrupulous in the use of birth control methods if pregnancy is not desired.
James’s Mercury Conjunct Barbra’s Pluto:
Your conversations tend to be probing and deep. You enjoy uncovering the underlying motivations and causes of a situation. Frequently what starts out as a light, friendly conversation ends up as an in-depth psychoanalysis of each other! Barbra may dominate your conversations and at times tries to force James into agreeing or believing whatever Barbra wants!
James’s Venus Conjunct Barbra’s Mars:
The romantic and sexual attraction between you is almost irresistible. This relationship is one that was probably “more than just friends” from the start. The intensity of your feelings for one another is unlikely to fade over time, and you find much fulfillment in your love for each other.
Barbra’s Sun Square James’s Mercury:
The two of you do not always see eye-to-eye on issues, and it is very easy for James to become critical of Barbra. Compounding the problem is Barbra’s tendency to be very sensitive to criticism from James and consequently react defensively to this criticism. This need not be a serious problem however; a little tolerance for each other’s right to disagree and respect for individual differences is all it takes to make personal differences stimulating rather than annoying.
Barbra’s Sun Square James’s Pluto:
Your relationship is intense, magnetic, and complex. You are fascinated by each other and you engage in deep, intense discussions and encounters that unveil your innermost thoughts, feelings, goals, hopes, fears, and ambitions. This is not a superficial relationship! You are very uninhibited with each other, and you open up to each other more readily than to others. Be wary of power struggles, however, as James, in particular, may be tempted to use the magnetic attractive power over Barbra to manipulate and control Barbra. Also, either of you may feel threatened, embarrassed, or disempowered by revealing so much of yourself to the other, and consequently feel the need to be secretive and competitive with each other. You have a profound influence upon one another, for good or ill.
Barbra’s Asc. Trine James’s Mars:
Attraction between you is very strong. Your goals and interests harmonize very well, and you are naturally inclined to join together in shared interests, projects, goals, and work.
Barbra’s Moon Square James’s Jupiter:
You enjoy joking and kidding each other, and you spark each other’s sense of humor. In fact, it is sometimes difficult to be serious with each other; the tendency to be light-hearted and jovial is too irresistible. Also, you are very supportive and encouraging to each other, but you tend to be overly optimistic about each other and make promises that you cannot fulfill. You encourage each other to be extravagant, sometimes too much so.
Barbra’s Moon Square James’s Saturn:
This relationship is not an easy one! There is a sense of responsibility towards each other that may incline you to marry or form some kind of long-lasting commitment to each other. But although the union is likely to be long-lasting, it is also likely to have more than its fair share of frustrations and difficulties. At times you both feel emotionally constrained and inhibited by being together, and this relationship may feel like a form of imprisonment! Barbra, in particular, may feel disheartened by James’s criticisms, worries, fears, or need to dominate Barbra’s life. Barbra’s emotional needs and feelings are ignored and neglected at times, leaving Barbra feeling alone in this relationship. Most likely there is too much emphasis on responsibilities and obligations and not enough attention given to the needs for acceptance and tenderness. The serious tone of the relationship also stifles play and light-hearted fun-loving activities. This relationship may endure even when your feelings towards one another have cooled because there is a great deal of security in it, even if there is little satisfaction over time.
James’s Moon Sextile Barbra’s Venus:
Romantic love for each other is very strong, and there is a very sweet, tender, and romantic quality to your feelings for each other. You also evoke feelings of good will and tenderness in each other. This is a sweet relationship that could easily become a long-lasting one.
Barbra’s Mercury Square James’s Mars:
The tendency to argumentativeness, verbal abuse, and mutual misunderstanding is very strong so please heed the following advice, especially if your relationship is a permanent one: try to avoid abusive language towards each other, and do not try to coerce the other person to accept your views. You enjoy challenging each other’s ideas, showing the weaknesses, inconsistencies, or superficialities in each other’s reasoning. While the intention is good, the net result can be hurt feelings and anger. Typically there is some truth to each other’s point of view, but a lack of real appreciation and respect for each other’s ideas triggers argumentativeness.
James’s Venus Square Barbra’s Neptune:
Your love for each other has a very dreamy, idealistic, and romantic quality. You are infatuated with each other, sometimes almost hypnotized by each other. You tend to have glamorous and idealistic notions of each other that are far removed from reality. This relationship is prone to major disappointments when you each discover that your partner is not as perfect as imagined. Disillusionment and disappointment are likely, but you can mitigate this tendency if you allow yourself to enjoy the dreamy romanticism without projecting your wildest fantasies onto your partner, believing you have found the companion of your dreams.
Destiny and Final Outcome of Your Relationship
Composite Moon Quincunx Jupiter:
Inevitably the two of you will have to deal with the results of either poor management of funds, excessive extravagances, mishandled investments, or past debts that one or both of your bring with you from previous times.
There is a curious discontentment that is generated between you – a desire for more, for better, for improvements, for something that you don’t have now. As a result you are apt to, for instance, buy a more expensive home or automobile than you can comfortably afford, and then struggle with the payments. So, while you may look very comfortable and prosperous, it would be at a cost to your emotional peace and well-being.
“Unexpected and/or inconvenient increases” is a theme. Your family may become bigger than anticipated, creating inconveniences – but also blessings!
Composite Moon Square Pluto:
When you are together, deep emotions and intense, compelling, irrational energies within both of you come into play. Definitely, if you are together for any length of time, you will both undergo an emotional transformation, a soul cleansing, for being together will dredge up all of your unfinished emotional business and feelings you may not even have believed yourselves capable of. This may feel like a “fatal attraction”, one that is irresistible even if one or both of you wants to run the other way.
A significant part of your purpose in coming together is to clear up and heal the past – old griefs, jealousies, wounds, and unresolved emotions, many of which you may have forgotten about until now!
Certainly, no matter how long this relationship lasts, it will be a profound, intense one. Emotionally it may feel overwhelming at times. If any emotional manipulation, domination, or abuse occurs, you both need to step back and get a clear, objective third party to help you. At times you’re both apt to feel that you’re in over your heads. On the other hand, though you may go through extreme emotions, you can develop an incredibly close bond.
Composite Mars Sextile Saturn:
Together you act more carefully, cautiously, conservatively, methodically and patiently than either of you might on your own. You have a steady pace which enables you to go the distance, and thus to achieve something worthwhile and enduring. You don’t shy away from hard work or the real nitty-gritty, concrete details involved in life. You can and will help one another organize and effectively manage certain mundane aspects of your lives. However, these details may become a significant focus in your time together, and falling into the role of being the responsible adult may not leave much room for dreaming, playing, or exploring new things. Nevertheless, reliability and being able to “get the job done” can be satisfying in their own way.
Composite Jupiter Sextile Pluto:
The two of you will grow tremendously through your relationship with one another. A spiritual renewal or rebirth of sorts will be the result of your combined energies. Your faith in yourselves will be renewed and will enable you to undertake endeavors that might have seemed too great of overwhelming before you came together. Your belief in one another, as well as shared religious or spiritual convictions, will be a great source of support.
A shared interest in healing, health, and spiritual as well as physical wholeness, will definitely play a part in your relationship.

There is sufficient variety and expansiveness in this relationship to keep it interesting for a long time.

James’s Saturn in Barbra’s 1st house:
James’s more mature, responsible, reliable side comes out in this relationship. James becomes almost paternalistic in this relationship, always being concerned about Barbra’s well-being. James is also inclined to offer lots of critical advice, at times interfering too much with Barbra’s plans and goals. James’s “helpful criticism” sometimes sours into moralistic judgments. James should be wary of the tendency to control or severely limit Barbra’s sense of freedom.
Barbra’s Saturn in James’s 8th house:
If you are married or live together, you will find that finances and management of resources become a significant issue in your relationship. Barbra is likely to be hesitant to freely provide and give as willingly as James would like. One of you often wants to keep certain assets owned individually and is unwilling to share them. The problem may be more subtle also, and one of you is likely to feel at times that the other is selfish and unwilling to share, even if you cannot defend your reasons for feeling this way. You are also likely to find that attitudes towards sexuality and love-making are different, and your moods are not always in sync with each other. You may wish your mate were more sensitive, or more aggressive (or less aggressive), more romantic (or less romantic), etc. On the other hand, if both of you are able to avoid the tendency to be selfish at times and withhold feelings, you may find that you are able to overcome old habits of extravagance, poor judgment and lack of discernment in financial matters. Illusions about romance can also be replaced with more realistic views.
James’s Uranus in Barbra’s 2nd house:
James encourages Barbra to use more creative, unusual methods for investing, developing financial stability and security. James may, for example, encourage Barbra to invest in a new enterprise that presents big opportunities but is also risky.
Barbra’s Uranus in James’s 8th house:
Your courtship undoubtedly took many unusual twists and turns. The attraction between you is powerful, and sometimes the “urge to merge” is almost irresistible. Sexual activity and love-making probably began very early in the relationship. Also, the way you jointly handle finances and investments is likely to take some unusual turns and the two of you may, for example, invest in some risky ventures. Also, if you marry and later divorce, both of you are likely to be surprised by the manner in which you agree to divide your joint resources.
James’s Neptune in Barbra’s 6th house:
Barbra is often disappointed in the way that James handles problems and performs various chores and tasks. Barbra is likely to feel that James is careless or sloppy. You approach many tasks in a very different manner from each other. This is not likely to create any serious problems, and can even add some interesting variety to your lives.
Barbra’s Neptune in James’s 12th house:
The two of you are likely to share a lot of secrets together. There is a great deal of fantasy and imagination that you share, and both of you may feel that it is inappropriate to bring this side of yourselves into the public. There is a strong spiritual or psychic bond that draws you together and there is an element of mystery to your relationship. You may share some very unusual, almost mystical, experiences together.
James’s Pluto in Barbra’s 5th house:
Your relationship is a spirited one. You love to do things together, and you will inevitably engage in creative work or play together – developing projects together or competing with each other. If romantic attraction is strong, you can become obsessed with each other.
Barbra’s Pluto in James’s 10th house:
If this is a long-term relationship, Barbra will have a critical effect on James’s career and ambitions. Circumstances arise that enable Barbra to play a key role in helping steer James’s career along new lines, and to levels of greater stature and influence. Barbra can help James gain a whole new outlook on career opportunities and the best way to utilize personal talents, but this process is a complex and tricky one. The final outcome could be very successful or a failure, depending on how both of you handle the situation.
James’s Sun Sextile Barbra’s Saturn:
There is a deep sense of mutual commitment and dedication that keeps the two of you together, even when you face difficult times. Barbra is very dedicated and loyal to James, sincerely interested in being responsible to James, and willing to make sacrifices when necessary. The two of you work well together on practical matters and business affairs. If you marry, you will find that you can rely on each other to be helpful and responsible.
James’s Sun Sextile Barbra’s Neptune:
A strong feeling of sympathy and shared idealism is an important link between the two of you. Your ideals, intuitions, and religious aspirations are very harmonious and you work very well together, and are able to assist each other to grow spiritually, often in an unconscious way. You help each other to look beyond the immediate personal problems and concerns, and focus more on your higher aspirations and loftier ideals.
Barbra’s Mercury Conjunct James’s Jupiter:
Your conversations frequently turn to philosophical, religious, or political areas. Your discussions often move more towards the forest than the trees. You help each other get a broader perspective of your situation and you are likely to find yourselves traveling, exploring, and, in many ways, broadening your horizons. James believes in and encourages Barbra’s ideas, plans, and intellect.
Barbra’s Saturn Conjunct James’s Uranus:
James often feels that Barbra inhibits, disapproves of, or limits James’s spontaneity, freedom, and need to experiment. In your relationship, James often feels and acts like a rebellious teenager, with Barbra playing the part of the disciplinarian, or authoritarian, restrictive parent.
Barbra is the voice of caution and has a stronger concern for security, stability, and commitment. James wants more openness and excitement, and this conflict can create a lot of tension between you.
James’s Uranus Trine Barbra’s Neptune:
You are more open and receptive to the psychic realm and to spiritual impulses when you are together, and as a couple you may explore areas such as telepathy, dreams, meditation, and “higher consciousness” to a greater degree than ever before. You inspire imagination and creativity along artistic or musical lines in one another as well.
