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 Joel is more aggressive than Hoda, and another statement that Hoda is more aggressive than Joel, means that you alternate roles, with Joel sometimes being the leader and Hoda 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.

Your birth chart interpretation is based on the positions of
the planets at the time of your birth. For the benefit of
students of astrology, these positions, along with other
technical information, are listed below:

Chapter 1

A Comparison of Temperaments and Life Styles

that Affect Your Ability to Harmonize with Each Other

Joel’s Sun in Aries and Hoda’s Sun in Leo:

Both of you are independent, self-motivated individuals, very much concerned with your own creative work and interests, and you prefer not to feel like you “own” each other. Joel, however, often acts in a manner that is socially inappropriate while Hoda is more aware of appearances and is more concerned with the response of others. Joel is somewhat indifferent to other people’s opinions, while Hoda craves approval and affirmation from others.

You are both immensely proud and neither of you wants to take the back seat in this relationship. There is a great deal of harmony between you, but being two spirited and somewhat volatile people, when you clash your fights are likely to be dramatic and boisterous.

Joel’s Moon in Aries and Hoda’s Moon in Virgo:

You will need to do quite a bit of adjusting in order to harmonize with one another on a daily basis, as your personal habits and instinctive emotional responses to situations are very different, and may become a source of considerable irritation over time.

Hoda is careful and needs to thoroughly analyze a situation before proceeding. Joel, on the other hand, is impulsive and direct and often abrupt. Joel will act first, and think about the consequences later. Joel is prone to emotional outbursts and short-lived, but frequent, flares of temper. Hoda is rather sensitive and becomes nervous, fretful, or anxious by Joel’s brashness.

Hoda is a bit of a worrier, and Joel, who hates to admit ever feeling frightened or insecure, may scoff at Hoda’s concerns and worries.

Also, Hoda is something of a perfectionist, dislikes making mistakes, and can be very critical of self and others. Joel has a strong need to take chances on new ventures, to be daring and original, and is bound to make numerous mistakes in the process. Hoda’s criticisms can be very discouraging to the bold pioneer in Joel. One way you can support each other is for Hoda to help organize and practically implement some of Joel’s creative ideas.

Moon & Pluto hard for Joel, soft or conj for Hoda:

You share a similar emotional depth and intensity, and passionate feelings about loved ones, family, and especially children.

Either or both of you may have come from an abusive family, and healing the resultant traumas is an important part of your journeys. You can help one another with this. Hoda, in particular, may help Joel release the pain from an unhappy past.

If both of you are not honest about and conscious of just how you were affected by your treatment as children, the two of you can become enmeshed in an emotional swamp, imprisoned by old conditioning and replaying the same old theme song of your youth over and over again in your current relationships.

Chapter 2

Major Themes in the Relationship: What Brought You Together

Sun Mutually Aspects Venus:

It is difficult for you to resist one another. You are charmed by one another and see much in each other that is beautiful, desirable, and attractive. Yours is a warm, affectionate relationship. Quite simply, you make one another happy!

Joel’s Sun Square Hoda’s Venus:

Joel is very much aware of Hoda’s beauty or attractiveness and finds Hoda very persuasive and appealing. However, your personal styles, tastes, and preferred leisure activities are often not in harmony, and you need to make adjustments and allowances for one another’s differing personal tastes and desires.

Hoda’s Sun Opposition Joel’s Venus:

Sparks fly when you come into contact with one another! Strong feelings of love, attraction, warmth, mutual admiration, and appreciation bring you together, and you are able to express your love feelings openly and fully to one another. You can be great friends and companions as well as lovers.

Asc. Mutually Aspects Neptune:

You tend to have a very unclear or stilted perception of one another, seeing each other through a haze of fantasy, glamour, or romantic imagination. You may be more taken with the image that you have in your mind of this person than the real none-too-perfect human being. You have trouble dealing with the prosaic aspects of life when you are together. You are also able to blend or merge emotionally with one another, and there is a great deal of sympathetic understanding and rapport between you. You “pick up” on one another’s moods very easily and may become confused by this at times, unable to distinguish or separate your own from feelings from those of your partner.

Joel’s Asc. Trine Hoda’s Neptune:

Joel’s sympathy and charitable impulses are brought out by Hoda and there is much mutual tolerance, sensitivity, and good will between you. You help one another in an unselfish way. If Joel is a driving, ambitious person, Hoda can help Joel relax and let go of minor irritations and petty problems. If Joel is a more relaxed or passive person, Hoda will reinforce those traits.

Hoda’s Asc. Conjunct Joel’s Neptune:

The two of you have a very strong psychic or telepathic link, and there is a great deal of sensitivity, empathy, and understanding between you. Idealism and devotion are important elements in your relationship and both of you may gladly give or sacrifice much for one another. Joel encourages Hoda to be receptive and somewhat passive. Hoda is easily swayed by Joel’s emotions and moods, and this may be confusing or overwhelming, especially if Hoda doesn’t have a solid sense of self. Joel, on the other hand, idolizes Hoda, and may have a very inaccurate picture of Hoda’s true nature and needs. Also, both of you may be very indirect or subtle in your communications. Strive to be straightforward and clear with one another.

Venus Mutually Aspects Neptune:

Your feelings for each other are so dreamy and idealized that it is doubtful that you have a very realistic view of each other. Enjoy the dreamy romance while it lasts but be ready also for times of disillusionment when the fog lifts and you see your partner in a clearer light.

Joel’s Venus Square Hoda’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.

Hoda’s Venus Trine Joel’s Neptune:

You evoke in each other a greater sensitivity to music, art, and poetry, as well as feelings of compassion and sympathy. You find each other fascinating and interesting and you love exploring new dimensions of feeling and sensitivity through music, art, poetry, or religion. There is also a dreamy, romantic quality to the love that you have for each other.

Hoda’s Sun Trine Joel’s Moon:

You have a strong affinity with one another, an instinctive rapport that enables you to know one another very well, almost from the start. A basic compatibility exists which helps you to overcome the stressful or problematic facts of your relationship. You have a natural sense of belonging with one another, and partnership of some kind is likely to develop and flourish.

Hoda’s Sun Trine Joel’s Mercury:

The mental rapport that you two share is a big reason why you enjoy each other’s company and are good friends. Communication is open and harmonious. You work together very well on practical affairs, daily chores, problem-solving, and business activities.

Hoda’s Asc. Square Joel’s Mars:

The two of you frequently approach work and goals in very different ways, and consequently you are inclined to step on each other’s toes. Hoda may feel that Joel is pushy or insensitive to all of the issues and concerns that are involved in a situation. You can work together very effectively, but it requires you to allow each other the freedom to approach problems in a very different way than you would. Very often you can accomplish more by working separately from each other on different aspects of a problem rather than attempting to work jointly.

Hoda’s Mars Trine Joel’s Neptune:

You enjoy watching movies, reading novels, discussing music and the arts, and pursuing religious or metaphysical areas together. You work well together in any area that involves a strong imaginative element. The spiritual bond between you is strong, and as you spend time together, your ideals and your sense of purpose in life becomes more refined and intertwined.

Chapter 3

Destiny and Final Outcome of Your Relationship

Composite Sun Quincunx Neptune:

Truthfulness, honesty, and personal integrity will become important issues between you. This isn’t to say there will necessarily be any willful deception, but subtle nuances and innuendoes which can be misinterpreted, omitting pertinent information, or leading the other to believe something that isn’t strictly true, can create mistrust and uncertainty in your relationship.

On the other hand, the two of you may be square with one another, but find yourselves involved with disreputable schemers. In any practical or financial matters, beware of being taken advantage of. When you join forces you have a tendency to believe what you want to believe, and to thus be misled.

Composite Moon Conjunct Mercury:

Through your relationship with one another, and especially your intimate conversations, both of you will understand your past histories, your emotions, and your own inner lives much more clearly. Being in one another’s presence evokes in both of you the desire to confide, to tell your stories, to speak about your private selves. You are able to talk for hours. There is often a sentimental or nostalgic tone to your discussions. Visiting old childhood haunts together, studying your family trees, looking at and discussing old photographs, describing your dreams to each other, talking about your children or your mate or parents – this type of sharing will be a crucial aspect of your bond. Even if you are not the sort of person who discusses feelings or readily confides in others, you’ll find that with this particular person, you can and will. You make good counselors for one another.

At times you may feel that your discussions are too subjective, or always become personal even when the initial topic is broad and rather impersonal. For the two or you, emotional attitudes and feelings will always color your communication. This is an essential part of the purpose of your relationship: examining feelings and the past in order to understand them.

Composite Moon Quincunx Saturn:

Your senses of what’s okay, what is and isn’t acceptable, what proper boundaries are, are very different on certain issues, especially regarding family matters. One of you may want more clear-cut boundaries and less interference from in-laws or children, while the other feels that a choice between “my lover” and “my family” must be made.

A disregard or disrespect (or simply a disinterest) for one another’s family, heritage, or traditions is also a possibility, and this can be a divisive issue between you.

In some significant way, severing old attachments will be necessary in order to develop a closeness with one another. If this doesn’t happen, great gaps may exist and grow between you.

Composite Venus Trine Uranus:

Openness, unconventionality, freedom from limiting ideas about how people “should” arrange their intimate lives, and willingness to experiment (sexually, or in how you derive pleasure and enjoyment) – these will inevitably play a significant role in your relationship with each other. You may be “breaking the rules” in some significant way, just by being together. The differences in your ages, races, or backgrounds may take people by surprise, for instance. Or in some other way you may not seem to fit together, according to “normal” standards. In certain significant ways the two of you do not conduct your relationship in the ordinary way. An unusual degree of independence and flexibility, and something totally different from other relationships you may have had, are part of what this connection is all about.

Composite Sun Square Pluto:

The two of you have a very powerful and profound effect upon one another for good or ill, and a major temptation for you both is to use your power to control or change or reform one another. Inevitably you WILL be transformed as a result of your interaction with each other and the struggles you will face together, which at times may seem monumental. Circumstances which force you to eliminate everything you thought you knew or had, and begin all over again, will arise. You may lose something which is very precious to you both, but as a result, experience life on a much deeper level.

This relationship is anything but superficial. It will probably be one of the most intense of your lives. At its best it can enable you both to reclaim power you never realized was in you.

Composite Mercury Quincunx Saturn:

Communication is something the two of you will have to work at, because an easy flow of understanding and rapport – at least on an intellectual level – doesn’t exist. You may find yourselves repeating what you thought you’d already said, interrupting each other, becoming bored with the other person’s thought processes or style, or simply not getting through. Verbal communication is difficult, especially when you’re trying to be rational with one another. You force one another to slow down and explain yourselves clearly, and this will be frustrating from time to time. Interrupted communications and interference between you (letters lost in the mail, messages never delivered, etc.) are bound to be part of your relationship.

Composite Venus Conjunct Mars:

The passionate, deliciously amorous feelings you arouse in one another initially are destined always to be an important “glue” in your relationship. This powerful drive you feel toward one another will be hard to ignore, and it is unlikely the two of you will ever be “just friends”. No matter what you tell yourselves, the sexual energies between you are highly charged, and the love-desire quite intense. Your feelings for each other will always be “hot”, and are unlikely to ever cool to indifference. However, if other aspects of your lives bring you into conflict, your animosity toward one another would become as hot-blooded and fierce as your love. You simply will never be lukewarm toward one another. Nevertheless, prospects for deep fulfillment – at least on the physical level – and sexual harmony are excellent. This is part of what draws you together, one of the purposes of your relationship.

Composite Mars Trine Uranus:

An unusual degree of personal freedom, independence, and permission to act freely and without constraints will be vital to this relationship. Perhaps one of the more enjoyable aspects of being together is the freewheeling, outrageous, and adventuresome energy that is generated between you. You should be out and about, exploring, doing things that are daring. Your relationship will never be entirely tame or domesticated, and as long as neither of you expects only peace, contentment, and complete devotion from this person, you may revel in the dynamism inherent in your relationship.

A tendency to act selfishly and inconsiderately is, unfortunately, also something one or both of you will do without even giving it a second thought. Individualism can outweigh the concern for the “togetherness” in your relationship.

Composite Jupiter Square Neptune:

The two of you will be involved in some highly speculative ventures, many of which are simply overblown fantasies with little chance of concrete realization. Unlimited imagination, hope, and idealism permeate your relationship, and this makes you believe (or almost believe) that you can do anything together. There is a naive foolishness and optimism in this, a trust in Luck or in the abundance of the Universe, which in fact buoys you up in spite of whatever setbacks occur.

Even if as single individuals you are fairly practical and realistic, something about being with each other amplifies your sense of grand possibilities, your most extravagant dreams and wishes. “Somewhere Over the Rainbow” could be your theme song. Be aware that as a couple you have an imagination that is somewhat out of control, and the inability to stay within reasonable limits will eventually catch up with you. Carelessness, negligence towards basic, mundane responsibilities, and generosity overdone will be your nemesis.

Chapter 4

Other Themes in Your Relationship

Joel’s Sun in Hoda’s 5th house:

Joel encourages Hoda’s creative talents, and both of you are inspired to undertake joint creative projects. If you share a similar artistic or creative interest, then you certainly will work together and inspire each other tremendously along creative lines. You really enjoy each other’s company and love to play games together.

Hoda’s Sun in Joel’s 2nd house:

Hoda takes a keen interest in Joel’s finances, assets, and talents, and Hoda is likely to provide financial assistance and enthusiasm for Joel’s projects and ambitions.

Joel’s Moon in Hoda’s 6th house:

Joel enjoys assisting Hoda in any way possible, and is willing to perform tasks and chores for Hoda with little complaint. Joel may, however, at times be overly concerned with Hoda’s welfare, and worry unnecessarily about Hoda’s well-being and health.

Hoda’s Moon in Joel’s 3rd house:

There is a natural smoothness and ease with which Hoda can express ideas and concern to Joel, which fosters a warm friendship between you.

Joel’s Mercury in Hoda’s 6th house:

You enjoy tackling practical chores together. Joel, in particular, provides Hoda with lots of ideas on how to maintain health, property, and efficiently run daily affairs.

Hoda’s Mercury in Joel’s 3rd house:

The two of you love to chat, and often it requires effort for the two of you to be together without talking, even if there is little to discuss. Try to avoid the tendency to gossip with each other.

Joel’s Venus in Hoda’s 4th house:

Hoda’s deep feelings of love and admiration for Joel are not likely to evaporate over time. Both of you love your times together, especially your shared domestic life.

Hoda’s Venus in Joel’s 12th house:

Hoda seems a bit mysterious to Joel and Joel is intrigued and fascinated by Hoda, but may lack trust and feel insecure with Hoda. It is important to be honest and candid about feelings in this relationship, as there can be hidden feelings. There may also be a strong spiritual, almost mystical affinity for each other.

Joel’s Mars in Hoda’s 3rd house:

Joel enjoys challenging Hoda’s reasoning and logic, and Hoda may feel that this relationship is more like a debate club than a romance! If both of you can keep your communication from becoming acrimonious, you can learn a great deal from each other and enjoy a mentally stimulating relationship.

Hoda’s Mars in Joel’s 12th house:

Hoda has a strong desire to know Joel in a very intimate way, and often pressures Joel to reveal innermost, hidden traits. Joel, in turn, reveals more to Hoda than to others. You enjoy times alone together, when you can be more intimate and less inhibited with each other.

Joel’s Jupiter in Hoda’s 12th house:

Joel has a knack for getting under Hoda’s skin and understanding Hoda in a more intimate, deeper way than most other people. Joel is a dear friend, and comes “to the rescue” in times of crisis or transition. Together, you will develop a shared interest in altruistic and humanitarian (possibly also religious or spiritual) activities.

Hoda’s Jupiter in Joel’s 11th house:

Circumstances develop so that the two of you become very active together in community affairs, socializing, or political/social action. Together the two of you explore many social circles and develop a wide variety of friends and acquaintances.

Joel’s Saturn in Hoda’s 2nd house:

Handling of finances is a major issue in your relationship, especially if your relationship is a permanent one. Deciding how to increase income, how to wisely spend money, and how to develop financial security becomes a big issue, and major problems can arise if either of you ignores or overlooks your partner’s point of view in these matters. You will learn a lot about handling money and resources and how to develop material security in this relationship, and hopefully any difficult lessons will not cause serious regrets. Joel, in particular, should be wary of the tendency to be overly critical of the way that Hoda handles finances and should try not to interfere too much with Hoda’s decisions in this regard. Hoda should try not to be overly sensitive to Joel’s suggestions and should try to extract the useful, valuable suggestions and ignore the rest.

Hoda’s Saturn in Joel’s 9th house:

Hoda causes Joel to question personally-held philosophical assumptions, political ideology, and religious beliefs. In fact, Hoda often relishes challenging Joel’s views. If you have different beliefs, you will need to adapt to each other! Both of you will develop a more mature and realistic political, philosophical, and religious perspective through this relationship, although the learning process may not always be pleasant or easy. If either of you stubbornly clings to your own viewpoint, and is unwilling to learn from the other, you will gradually grow apart or create a rift in your relationship.

Joel’s Uranus in Hoda’s 9th house:

Hoda’s philosophical, political, and religious beliefs will undergo some major changes as a result of this relationship, particularly if the relationship is a long-term, serious one. In trying to adapt to Joel’s views, Hoda discovers the value in new perspectives and ideas that previously were not considered.

Hoda’s Uranus in Joel’s 3rd house:

There is a spontaneity and quickness to your communications that allows the two of you to convey a lot of information to each other very rapidly. Hoda spurs Joel to develop new, creative ideas and you both enjoy the fresh, innovative ideas that come to you when you start brainstorming together.

Joel’s Neptune in Hoda’s 1st house:

Joel brings out Hoda’s more idealistic, imaginative, intuitive, or “spacey” side. Joel enjoys sharing ideals and fantasies with Hoda, even if these dreams seem childish or unrealistic. Joel may also tend to exaggerate a bit with Hoda and needs to try to be as honest as possible with Hoda.

Hoda’s Neptune in Joel’s 5th house:

Hoda enjoys acting childish and silly with Joel. You enjoy playing games with each other, and there is also a strong element of fantasy and imagination in your romantic and sexual life.

Joel’s Pluto in Hoda’s 10th house:

If this is a long-term relationship, Joel will have a critical effect on Hoda’s career and ambitions. Circumstances arise that enable Joel to play a key role in helping steer Hoda’s career along new lines, and to levels of greater stature and influence. Joel can help Hoda 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.

Hoda’s Pluto in Joel’s 3rd house:

Hoda sometimes expresses ideas and opinions in a very forceful manner to Joel, who inspires Hoda to take a strong stand on issues, but Joel may feel that Hoda is too narrow-minded at times. The two of you can work well together in areas that require concentration or bold presentations such as research, marketing, etc.

Hoda’s Asc. Conjunct Joel’s Jupiter:

Joel helps build Hoda’s self-confidence and self-esteem tremendously. Hoda feels Joel’s approval and appreciation, and feels that Joel is a real friend and supporter, which enables Hoda to do more, take more risks, and aspire toward greater things.

Also, you simply feel good in one another’s company. Humor, fun, recreation, and play are a big part of your relationship.

Hoda’s Asc. Square Joel’s Uranus:

To Hoda, Joel seems highly unusual and fascinating, or unstable and disruptive, perhaps both.

Joel makes Hoda feel nervous and unsettled, but this may also be quite stimulating. Both of you challenge one another to change your plans, habits, or attitudes, and a great deal of flexibility, willingness to change, and openness is necessary on both of your parts.

Joel’s Asc. Sextile Hoda’s Mercury:

Harmonious, open, and clear communication is so ingrained in your relationship that you probably take it for granted. You enjoy long talks and it seems that no matter how well you know each other, you continue to enjoy having time for long discussions.

Hoda’s Venus Trine Joel’s Jupiter:

You are generous with one another, always ready to help each other, and you have a great respect and appreciation for one another. You also allow one another a lot of freedom to develop other friendships, rather than clinging possessively to one another. You may also benefit from one another materially as well as emotionally.

Joel’s Jupiter Trine Hoda’s Saturn:

You work well together on the level of practical, mundane affairs and could function very well as business partners. When you blend your energies, financial matters, investments, and plans for future security tend to work out quite well. Because you are able to cooperate to be faithful to your shared aims and goals, you make a successful team.

Hoda’s Saturn Opposition Joel’s Pluto:

Most likely there is a strong attraction-repulsion quality between the two of you, and it may be difficult for you to totally relax, surrender control, or completely trust one another. There may be much that you both must give up, eliminate, or let go of in order to be together, including your own hidden fears and deep-seated character defects.

Try to avoid becoming overly serious, intense, and heavy when you are together.

Hoda’s Saturn Trine Joel’s Neptune:

There is an unspoken sense of working together for spiritual growth or of helping one another unselfishly, a spiritual commitment to one another which is subtle and often not strongly felt by either of you until adversity assails you. Through your relationship, there is a deepening of your faith and a serious pursuit of your dreams and spiritual yearnings.
