A Composite chart is one created using the Mid-points between each planet in your chart and someone else's.

This is useful to give you a better understanding of the relationship that the two of you have created.

Unlike a Synastry chart which uses both sets of data and compares them, a Composite chart creates a whole new chart: One that represents your combined forces.

If you're in a business partnership I definitely recommend making a Composite chart!

You will need to know how your combined forces are going to react in your business.

This week we are covering Synastry charts.

This is when you construct a chart using two people's charts.

Go to and make an account.

First you add the data of person A, then you add person B

Go to click on FREE Horoscopes

Scroll down to Extended Chart Selection

Click in the box Horoscope for and choose your person A

Then click in box Partner and choose person B

Then under Chart Type choose Synastry chart (2) and under House System choose equal...then click blue button 'click here to show chart'.

On the next page will be your Synastry chart

The website will automatically add person B's chart's planets around the circumference of person A

Now you can look at where the joint planets are in the same sign.

Here's what Queen Elizabeth and Princess Diana's Synastry chart looks like

Yods are funny little creatures...they're not Universal and not everyone has one.

They're an Aspect pattern in the chart where 3 planets are linked together in an isosceles triangle.

The Yod links three Elements that don't get along. The degrees are 2x inconjuncts (quincunx) and one sextile aspect.

Go to,_Duke_of_Cambridge and look

at William's chart. He has his Yod linking his Venus, Pluto and Neptune.

Big Thanx to Michael for this chart today:) xx

The symbol for a Yod looks like a little table with an A for its legs.....but like a wall-paper pasting table...

More info is in Karen Hamaker-Zondag's wonderful book The Yod Book, including a complete discussion of unaspected planets
