     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 Vanessa is more aggressive than Nick, and another statement that Nick is more aggressive than Vanessa, means that you alternate roles, with Vanessa sometimes being the leader and Nick 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

Chapter 1
A Comparison of Temperaments and Life Styles
that Affect Your Ability to Harmonize with Each Other

Vanessa’s Sun in Scorpio and Nick’s Sun in Scorpio:

Your partnership is an intense one, and you are likely to become very attached to, or obsessed with each other. If romantic attraction is even reasonably strong, this relationship could easily lead to marriage. First of all, both of you are very oriented towards marriage. Neither of you feels comfortable in light relationships and it is difficult for you to be “just dating” someone. You prefer to be wholeheartedly involved in a deep relationship or not at all.

Both of you are also prone to be possessive and very emotionally attached to anyone that you give your love to. Like most lasting, important relationships, yours will have its share of difficult times, and you both seem to thrive on passionate, tempestuous interactions. Stormy fights and sizzling reunions may typify your relationship. You both love intensely and you hate with equal ferocity, so your relationship is likely to be either deeply satisfying or very destructive to you both; there is no middle ground for the two of you!

Vanessa’s Moon in Sagittarius and Nick’s Moon in Taurus:

You have very different, and often conflicting, emotional needs and yearnings. Vanessa is expansive, craves adventure, and wants to be where the energy and action is. Vanessa’s curiosity and quest for growth, knowledge, or new experiences creates a strong urge for travel or changes in residence. Nick, on the other hand, is very attached to the familiar, and prefers a steady routine, domestic peace and stability. Nick is very slow and resistant to changes in home life or personal relationships, and may feel threatened by Vanessa’s restlessness.

Also, Vanessa is an idealist with great hopes and plans for the future, while Nick lives primarily in the present and is more involved with immediate, tangible concerns. Vanessa may feel that Nick doesn’t understand or appreciate Vanessa’s dreams, and that Nick stifles Vanessa’s enthusiasm with an insistence on realism and practicality.

Nick may feel that Vanessa lives in an unreal world, ignores the facts at hand, and leaves Nick to take care of the work and business of day to day life.

However, you both have an essentially generous, live-and-let-live attitude which may enable you to overlook the differences between you.

Moon & Jupiter hard for Nick, soft or conj for Vanessa:

Both of you are emotionally generous, open, and free-handed with your money, time and affection. However, Nick tends to overdo all of these virtues, and can become lazy, irresponsible, “addicted” to comfort, unable to stay within reasonable boundaries, unable or disinclined to say “no” to any good thing that presents itself.  Vanessa is sympathetic and understands Nick’s desire to say “yes” to everything and everybody, but is not as self-indulgent.

Chapter 2
Major Themes in the Relationship: What Brought You Together

Vanessa’s Sun Conjunct Nick’s Sun:

You strongly identify with each other and are very much alike in important ways. It is easy for you to be together because you do not have to explain yourselves to one another. An innate appreciation and understanding of one another’s essence exists between you, and this is vitalizing and ego-affirming for both of you. However, you share the same flaws and weaknesses as well as the positive qualities, and you may find it difficult to be with someone who so clearly exhibits the very things you like least about yourself. The more you accept yourself, the more beneficial and delightful your relationship with one another is.

Vanessa’s Sun Conjunct Nick’s Mercury:

Talking and sharing ideas is highlighted in your relationship. You enjoy learning new things together and exchanging points of view. You work well together in planning, organizing, theorizing, writing, or communicating ideas in any manner. You work together effectively on daily chores, problems, or business activities.

Nick’s Moon Opposition Vanessa’s Mercury:

Lively, insightful conversations are frequent in this relationship. You love confiding in each other, pouring out your deepest concerns, fears, and hopes to each other. You also enjoy discussing and analyzing issues at length. In general, these conversations are enjoyable and enlightening, but occasionally they may degrade into gossip and Vanessa may sometimes take an overly intellectual, cool, detached approach to Nick’s feelings.

Jupiter Mutually Aspects Saturn:

One of the most important themes in your relationship involves finding a balance between two basic needs: security, stability, order, responsibility and conserving versus freedom, envisioning new possibilities, taking risks, growing, and expanding. For details, read on . . .

Vanessa’s Jupiter Square Nick’s Saturn:

Nick often limits, burdens, or frustrates Vanessa without intending to or realizing it. There is a conflict here between Nick’s needs for security, stability, and order versus Vanessa’s desire for freedom, mobility, and expansiveness. How much, and in what ways, you spend money is probably a particularly thorny issue for you. Nick is more careful and restrictive or disapproving of Vanessa’s more relaxed, extravagant, or liberal approach.

Also, Nick often seeks to control or dominate Vanessa, and Vanessa may even take a subordinate role in the relationship for a time, accepting Nick’s “discipline”. Over time, however, Vanessa may find Nick’s subtle (or not so subtle!) criticism or constraints to be devitalizing and draining. And Vanessa, on the other hand, can make Nick feel like a perpetual wet blanket or miser.

Working together or going into business as equal partners is unlikely to work out well for you. It’s best if you can respect one another’s differing approaches and not seek to impose your own values or styles on one another.

Nick’s Jupiter Trine Vanessa’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.

Vanessa’s Mercury Square Nick’s Jupiter:

This relationship has a marked effect on the overall attitudes and beliefs of both of you, but particularly of Vanessa. You challenge each other’s religious, political, and philosophical beliefs. You may experience differences of opinion that are difficult to reconcile. You are also inclined to take risks together and speculate, sometimes foolishly.

Vanessa’s Mercury Trine Nick’s Saturn:

You work together well on practical problems. You help each other refine and clarify your ideas, and help “edit” each other’s work. Consequently you make a very effective team in business affairs, important or exacting work, and in solving daily problems.

Vanessa’s Mercury Sextile Nick’s Venus:

You are able to share your feelings, interests, and yearnings with an unusual degree of openness and honesty. It is likely that you enjoy discussing at length your feelings and thoughts about literature, the arts, and psychology, and these conversations are invariably mutually stimulating, interesting, and harmonious. It is also possible that you will successfully work together in some creative area.

Nick’s Venus Square Vanessa’s Jupiter:

You enjoy laughing, having fun, socializing, and going out together. You are great pals, but the relationship may not be serious enough to warrant a lasting commitment to each other. Consequently you both may decide to not marry even though you may love each other very much. If you do marry, you will allow each other a great deal of freedom, but you are likely to disagree on how to handle finances, budgeting, and investments.

Nick’s Venus Square Vanessa’s Saturn:

This relationship may very well lead to marriage, but there are some major negative tendencies that you both need to try to avoid. The proclivity to marriage stems from the strong sense of commitment, reliability, trustworthiness, faithfulness, and stability that this relationship offers. You both feel that you can count on each other and dedicate your lives to each other. However, this stable, reliable relationship can easily become boring, unexciting, and downright cold over time. Nick, in particular, is likely to feel stifled by the relationship. Nick may feel neglected, unloved, and unappreciated. Your tastes and interests are often different and you sometimes simply don’t connect with each other on an emotional level. To prevent this relationship from drying up, you both must maintain your involvement in activities that inspire and uplift you, and maintain your friendships, hobbies, and entertainment you love -even when your partner does not share your enthusiasm for these activities.

Chapter 3
Destiny and Final Outcome of Your Relationship

Composite Sun Square Moon:

There is a basic undeniable tension between the two of you that will be both creative and irritating. It is apt to manifest itself in small ways, often in matters of personal comfort (such as the temperature each one prefers the thermostat set to, or a dislike for one another’s domestic habits), but also in more profound ways, for instance: an inability to accept the other’s family or familial background and traditions. Some resistance to your relationship by either or both of your families or old circle of friends can also be expected, at least initially. A marked degree of unease exists between the two of you on these subtle issues and this prevents you both from totally submerging yourselves into this relationship. In numerous subtle ways you are constantly reminded of your “otherness” and differences from one another, and you’ll be both fascinated and frustrated by these fundamental differences.

One of the purposes of your relationship is to challenge each of you to encounter (and even embrace) attitudes and aspects of life which your partner displays, and which are essentially very foreign to you.

Composite Moon Opposition Saturn:

Emotional separations, withdrawal, and distancing yourselves from one another are issues you will have to deal with over and over again in your relationship. You easily could simply pull away from one another in subtle ways, and grow increasingly cooler, more impersonal, and distant, leaving nothing more than a shell of a relationship with no life or feeling in it.

The other possibility is that you truly want to be together, but outside demands, commitments, or other pressing obligations prevent this. Unrequited yearning, unfulfilled emotional needs, a longing for closeness which simply doesn’t happen – these are some of the undertones between you two.

This is a relationship in which you are both meant to learn from emotional pain and frustration. For one thing, you will have to find ways to nurture and take care of yourselves rather than expecting the other person to provide that support. Long, dry spells or periods of aloofness can be expected. This is not to say the two of you cannot come together, only that there will be much to overcome, not the least of which are your own fears of smothering or closeness and your self-protective defenses.

Composite Mercury Conjunct Uranus:

Challenging each other’s usual modes of thinking, experimenting with new ideas or techniques, investigating “alternative” and unconventional methods, and continually discovering new, “mind-blowing” ways of seeing the world are essential aspects of your relationship.

You stimulate one another intellectually, so much so that both of you may want to talk simultaneously, breaking into one another’s train of thought with sudden insights and understandings. When the two of you brainstorm together, you come up with amazing and original ideas! This is certainly one of your purposes as a couple. At times you will find one another’s makes you feel tense and “wired”, in which case you’ll both need to take a bit of a break.

Composite Venus Square Mars:

Inevitably there will be passion and fireworks in your relationship, and just as inevitably there will be friction, argumentativeness, and competition between you – all of which adds to the magnetic attraction you have for one another. Fighting will create more desire and cause amorous feelings to flow. But if one or both of you prefers a more peaceful relationship, all of this intensity can be unnerving. Sexual disharmonies or conflicting needs and desires regarding how love is expressed will have to be worked out. Lack of passion, however, will never be a issue!

This is destined to be a vibrant and very physical relationship. If for some reason the two of you could not physically express your affections for each other, you will find being in one another’s presence irritating and frustrating.

Composite Sun Square Saturn:

The necessity to get down to business, to work hard, and to be responsible adults is an essential aspect of your relationship. When the two of you are together a sense of heaviness, seriousness, purpose, or obligation weighs in on you, so it is not always pleasant to be around one another. You demand much – sometimes too much – of one another and of your relationship. One or both of you may become overly critical, oppressive, and restrictive toward the other. Financial hardships and burdens, difficult circumstances such as a chronic health problem, or other “battles” which require patience, endurance, forbearance, and toughness are also likely. Part of the purpose of this relationship is to develop these qualities within you both. While unlikely to be an easy relationship, it can be character-building and ultimately strengthening.

Composite Venus Square Saturn:

Unrequited and unfulfilled love will be a theme in your relationship. It may be that outside circumstances prevent you from being together as fully as you would wish, or the blockages come from within the two of you. Fears – of loss, separation, or abandonment – may well block you from sharing your love, surrendering fully, and letting feelings of closeness flow. Insecurities and lack of trust can hold you back from even coming together. And if you do come together, true intimacy will be hard to achieve. A certain lack of generosity and openness, and an overall feeling of caution and tightness, characterize your bond.

Part of the purpose of this relationship is to let you see what you really need and what you are truly capable of giving in close relationship to another, but it is principally through frustration that this insight occurs.

Composite Mars Opposition Saturn:

In addition to whatever joys this relationship holds, there will be considerable frustration as well. Part of the purpose of your being together is to help you both define what you really want – but this happens through being deprived of or denied it. One or both of you feels that you cannot do what you want, or that you are constantly being checked, watched, and judged. Either that, or as a couple you will feel that outside circumstances and forces work against you. Life may seem like a great strain, a constant battle, a grind, a struggle against overwhelming odds. A certain grimness and pessimism can get in the way of your joint achievements.

Inevitably, there will be a chronic, long-standing difficulty in this relationship which will require patience, forbearance, and persevering effort to overcome. It is important not to let an overall feeling of struggle and discouragement contaminate your entire relationship.

What do you want? How much do you want it? And, what are you willing to do for it? are questions that will face you two.

Composite Neptune Sextile Pluto:

Mysticism, supernatural experiences, psychic communication, or interests of an inner or esoteric nature will play a significant role in your relationship. There may be an unusual shared interest in secret things, mysteries, uncovering things which have been hidden. Your “psychic radar” and ESP are heightened, too, through your relationship and the “far out” things you pursue together.

Chapter 4
Other Themes in Your Relationship

Vanessa’s Sun in Nick’s 9th house,
Nick’s Sun in Vanessa’s 9th house:

Philosophy, either of a religious, political, or social kind, is a dominant issue in your relationship. You will explore various religious or political ideologies; together you will develop a more mature and broader philosophical outlook on life. You may also travel quite a lot and broaden your horizons in other ways as well.

Vanessa’s Moon in Nick’s 10th house:

Vanessa takes a great interest in Nick’s career and reputation, and is likely to openly promote Nick’s career, drawing recognition to Nick and “advertising” Nick’s services and talents. Vanessa may be less sensitive to Nick’s inner feelings and personal needs.

Nick’s Moon in Vanessa’s 3rd house:

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

Vanessa’s Mercury in Nick’s 9th house,
Nick’s Mercury in Vanessa’s 9th house:

You bring out the more philosophical or religious side of each other. There is a strong teacher-student feeling to your relationship at times, and you may switch roles, with one of you being the teacher and then later the other one being the teacher. As long as your philosophical perspectives are compatible, all goes well, but if you disagree strongly on philosophical, religious, or political issues, you will be at each other’s throats!

Vanessa’s Venus in Nick’s 8th house:

Vanessa stirs Nick’s romantic and sexual feelings. Vanessa is exciting, almost mysterious to Nick. An intense, but emotionally complex relationship can easily develop.

Nick’s Venus in Vanessa’s 11th house:

You enjoy going out together and you will develop a love for the same friends, groups, and social activities. As a couple, you are outgoing and friendly, and will meet lots of new people and share many new experiences together.

Vanessa’s Mars in Nick’s 11th house:

The two of you are likely to collaborate on community affairs, political activities, or intellectual endeavors. Vanessa encourages Nick to participate in social groups and contribute to society in greater measure. It is likely that the two of you will collaborate on committees or in some kind of business. Whether your endeavors are successfully depends largely on whether you can work together harmoniously; if you arouse anger in each other, you will end up being adversaries or competitors instead of partners in a team.

Nick’s Mars in Vanessa’s 3rd house:

Nick enjoys challenging Vanessa’s reasoning and logic, and Vanessa 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.

Vanessa’s Jupiter in Nick’s 8th house:

There is a strong inclination to merge resources, talents, and energies. You tend to pool your resources and Vanessa, in particular, is not inclined to maintain a feeling of separateness from Nick. This tendency to merge finances, resources, as well as feelings and living space draws you into a very personal, intimate relationship with each other, which you will have to use will power to avoid if you do not wish to be this close with each other.

Nick’s Jupiter in Vanessa’s 12th house:

Nick has a knack for getting under Vanessa’s skin and understanding Vanessa in a more intimate, deeper way than most other people. Nick 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.

Vanessa’s Saturn in Nick’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. Vanessa is likely to be hesitant to freely provide and give as willingly as Nick 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.

Nick’s Saturn in Vanessa’s 5th house:

This relationship causes Vanessa to question personal skills and competence a great deal. Nick feels that Vanessa is capable of so much more, and is inclined to feel that Vanessa is wasting valuable talent. Nick would like to see Vanessa be more serious and less superficial in creative work. Over time, Nick is likely to nag Vanessa to concentrate more on expressing unused personal talents. Rather than inspire Vanessa to do more, this may only serve to make Vanessa feel inadequate and dissatisfied with any accomplishments or progress made. With care and consideration, Nick can, indeed, spur Vanessa on to greater self-mastery and development, but the process is more delicate than Nick may at first realize. Great care – and unconditional love – is needed on Nick’s part to achieve this.

Vanessa’s Uranus in Nick’s 10th house:

Vanessa has lots of original ideas on how Nick can best achieve career goals. Vanessa is likely to encourage Nick to take a more adventurous, risky route, and Vanessa often feels that Nick holds back by being too conservative and security conscious. However, not all of Vanessa’s ideas are well founded, and Nick must have the ability to separate the really useful creative ideas from those that will only result in chaos and confusion.

Nick’s Uranus in Vanessa’s 9th house:

Vanessa’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 Nick’s views, Vanessa discovers the value in new perspectives and ideas that previously were not considered.

Vanessa’s Neptune in Nick’s 11th house:

You are likely to become involved in social groups, political or altruistic organizations, committees, and religious groups together. A big challenge will be how to maintain a high level of integrity and honesty in these activities so that the ideals can be reached.

Nick’s Neptune in Vanessa’s 10th house:

Nick tends to have idealistic notions of what Vanessa can achieve in a worldly sense, and consequently Nick is likely to encourage Vanessa to pursue dreams without compromise. Vanessa needs to be careful not to lose sight of the practical details that are needed to meet these goals.

Vanessa’s Pluto in Nick’s 9th house:

Vanessa challenges Nick’s philosophical and religious views. You are likely to find yourselves in enthusiastic, and sometimes heated, conversations about politics and social issues. These conversations are penetrating and deep, and both of you are likely to find them illuminating, although often uncomfortable as well.

Nick’s Pluto in Vanessa’s 8th house:

There is a powerful magnetism between you, and probably a strong sexual attraction as well. If romantic attraction is strong, you may go through periods of feeling compulsive and obsessive about each other. The emotions involved are complex, however, and the bond between you, while strong, is not necessarily harmonious.

Nick’s Asc. Trine Vanessa’s Jupiter:

Vanessa makes Nick feel more optimistic and self-confident, and encourages humor, play, and freer self-expression in Nick. You both feel more expansive and relaxed in one another’s company which makes the time you spend together easy, enjoyable, and rejuvenating.

Nick’s Asc. Sextile Vanessa’s Moon:

You are able to communicate with each other with such ease that you find yourselves openly sharing your personal concerns and interests very easily. Your friendship will continue to be a lasting, harmonious, meaningful one.

Nick’s Mars Opposition Vanessa’s Pluto:

This relationship is intense and can blow hot or cold, and in fact, is likely to go through extremes of happiness and fulfillment as well as frustration and conflict. At times you may feel like adversaries. You can end up in bitter power struggles with each other, and feel like your partner is trying to manipulate you. To prevent these problems, you must be able to accept differences of opinion and differing goals and ambitions. Vanessa, especially, must avoid dominating or undermining Nick’s efforts. You can drive one another to extremes.

Vanessa’s Jupiter Trine Nick’s Jupiter:

You encourage one another to grow and to be all that you can be, and through your mutual belief in one another’s abilities and aspirations, you help each other live more fully and freely. Because you see the best in one another, you naturally draw it out. You tend to agree on ethical, religious, philosophical, or spiritual matters, to have a similar approach to such issues, and to overlook or minimize your differences.

A shared goal, ideal, or vision is an important part of your relationship.

Vanessa’s Saturn Conjunct Nick’s Pluto:

It is likely that at the beginning of your relationship you both felt a powerful attraction to one another which one, or both, of you tried very much to resist, sensing perhaps that this would be a “heavy” relationship, one that could not be taken lightly. This is, indeed, the case! You will be unable to hide your worst sides from one another. Vanessa, especially, may feel defenseless and exposed, as the interaction between you two reveals deeper fears, weaknesses, and hang-ups. If there is a great degree of harmony and compatibility between the two of you (as shown by other astrological factors), the difficulties that arise will not be insurmountable: you will simply know one another very, very well – the pain, struggle, and darkness as well as the light. You do become overly serious together at times, and you tend to isolate yourselves from others.

Vanessa’s Saturn Square Nick’s Saturn:

No matter how fulfilling your life together is in some ways, there are times when you wonder why you are with this person, and if the frustrations and difficulties are worth it. There is a great deal of underlying friction and you may feel that your partner brings out the worst in you, stirring up fears, worries, and insecurities that you would rather forget.

Your relationship can be a very fruitful one if self-knowledge and inner development are your aims, for you will be confronted with your hidden, darker side. Instead of blaming your partner for the unhappiness you feel, try to see how your own attitudes and limitations contribute to the situation. You will grow in personal strength and integrity as you do this. However, there will still be times when you want “relief”, and may need to take a break from one another on a regular basis. If this cannot be arranged, you are likely to feel very stifled, restricted, discouraged, disapproved of, or suffocated a good deal of the time.

Vanessa’s Saturn Sextile Nick’s Neptune:

You are capable of dedication to one another’s spiritual needs or unselfish giving to one another, as there is an underlying sense of inner purpose and commitment between you. No matter how your relationship changes, you are likely to remain friends.

Nick’s Uranus Conjunct Vanessa’s Pluto:

Things are unlikely to become dull or predictable between you, as there is a strong current of intense change and constant renewal in your relationship. Your deepest desires for freedom and for new life and growth can be fulfilled in this relationship but will probably come about as a result of some radical decision and break from the past, a complete disruption of the status quo, especially for Nick. You may never quite feel like you are on stable ground together, and this can be very exciting or very uncomfortable, depending upon your individual temperaments.
