This post is about sharing the same aspect. For example when you have the same aspect in your chart as your partner, boss, family or enemy has. Sharing aspects are reflecting shared experiences.
People live and work together. Sometimes the planets in their chart interact. Sometimes people share an aspect. I mean, that in their charts both have a meaningful connection between the same two planets. When it is exactly the same aspect, this aspect is vivid and active in their relationship. It is exactly what they share. Continue for an indication of how to interprete shared aspects and for examples (like the shared aspects of Joran van der Sloot and Natalee Holloway).
Sharing aspects indicates: having the same sort of characteristic and/or experiences/wishes.Examples:
- If one person is ambitious and his partner is ambitious too the chances for success as indicated in their chart will grow.
- Or supposes someone is easily addicted and his partner too. How to stop an addiction if both are in trouble?
- In football teams many have an aspect between Sun or Mars and Pluto. That enforces the will to win and the drive for victory. They ‘go for it’! That is how sharing aspects works.
- Another effect is when a child is born with a harmonic aspect between two planets that conflict in the charts of his parents. The child might function as a mediator between his parents.
INDICATIONS FOR INTERPETING SHARED ASPECTS
Note: harmonious or soft aspects are the sextiles and trines. Neutral are conjunctions (except for ’difficult’ planets like Saturn) and quintiles and biquintiles (they mean: being creative with regards to the combination of the planets). Inconjunction, square and oppositions are hard aspects, also referred to as ‘afflictions’.
SHARED SUN ASPECTS
Sun and Moon in aspect is pointing at family life being the central issue in the relationship. If Sun and Moon are in conflict in both charts shared nasty experiences at home in early life or earlier relationships could be the focus. This relationship is an opportunity to learn how to go on based on these experiences. If the interaction between Sun and Moon is positive, you know how to be ‘one’ and how to cooperate, each op the couple doing their specific part.
Sun and Mercury shared in aspect is rather common and a sign of the subjective mind that many of us share. In a group or community this aspects makes you go for the shared interests.
Sun and Venus shared in aspect is a sign of love for life and sometimes for yourself. You want to have a pleasant life and that is what makes you come together, to make life more beautiful. As a couple you radiate beauty and happiness even more then when you are alone.
Sharing Sun and Mars in aspect is: competition. Who are the boss and the best? If harmonious you do sports together or you play a lot together. They are sharing the same kind of work and drives. But if in conflict there is a lot of struggle between the both of you and you must learn to cooperate or separate. In the same field of economy you might be competitive. In a relationship sexuality might be the battleground. Sharing the same enemy joins this couple.
Sun and Jupiter shared is a sign for shared progress in life. You both want to make life better and together you go for success. Even with the conflicting aspects you will probably succeed in it. You might be thinking you could do better….Both are tolerant and full of forgiveness and that helps to go on cheerfully and bright with supporting each other.
Sun and Saturn shared makes you worry a lot if the aspect is hard. Maybe you do this, due to sharing nasty life experiences or feeling the same limitations and responsibilities. Nice trines or sextiles make you the serious couple, the parents perhaps. You go for a long time relationship and for getting old together and you are consistent in that!
Sun and Uranus shared in aspect might indicate joined rebellion. How long this will last in a proper family home in a suburb, especially when the aspect is hard? But in a group of inventive people or in a place where news items are made you certainly can go for ‘sensation’ together. This relationship could have an unusual start. But too much tension could lead to stress, even if the surprises are nice. Both being independent and willing to be free it will be hard to stay together as a couple. With harmonious aspects this tendency for doing things the way you want it, will be tempered.
Sun and Neptune shared in aspect gives you shared ideals, dreams and faith or even a shared idol! But with hard aspects you might share the same disillusions as well or this relationship is disillusive. Cooperating could work out best in an asylum or in a non-profit organization where they can help others, and each other.
Another possible combination is between enemies and with Sun in hard aspect with Neptune shared. Ideology stand between you as was the case with the murderer of director Theo van Gogh who shared Sun square Neptune.
If Sun and Pluto make an aspect in both of your charts living together will not be easy. Two strong wills, two fanatics, both wanting to win and to have the power. If harmonious both will finally win in some way or win and survive together after making a difficult start. If both have the affliction in their chars, than there is the possibility of making each others’ life hell. But for some reason they are stuck to each other and will not easily separate. In crisis situations these people take charge and cooperate to survive. In teams they are joining forces to win as long as there is ‘the other’ to combat, trying to beat the team member by doing the best they can. Maybe that is why so many football teams have members with Sun-Pluto aspects.
SHARED MOON ASPECTS
Moon-Sun: see Sun-Moon
Moon and Mercury shared in aspect: this is the couple that knows how things ought to be done and they tell the whole family about it. Afflicted their will be a lot of misunderstandings and misinterpreting because both never really say what they feel. That is ‘not done’. Both behave in a way the other does not understand. That behavior makes life complicated, especially private life.
Moon and Venus shared in aspect is meant for the ever loving couple that attacks others as well (especially the males). When their are children and the aspect is hard the woman could become ‘mother’ for the husband and feel trapped and betrayed by a husband who is too nice to other women. In a family or group these two will enforce the feeling of belonging together.
Moon in aspect with Mars shared is the aspect for the hard working couple living speedy and (with hard aspects) having a lot of private fights at home. There may be sexual attraction, but also a need for competition. If production has to grow, it is rather fortunate to have these people sharing that aspect in your group. Otherwise the irritations will show up easily as they are always in a hurry together.
Moon in aspect with Jupiter shared is for the couple that has it all and never is content. They long for having more together and feel they own it. So they might even pretend to be better then they are when confronted with others. Success joins them. Not being satisfied with daily life issues is easily felt with hard aspects. They spoil their children, both of them and so the chance for having nasty children augments drastically. In a group they are the positive ones. With harmonious aspects both feel privileged and will therefore be open and tolerant. Prince Charles shares this aspect with his son William. That will make the relationship easy for them and they will be supportive.
Moon in aspect with Saturn shared is for the careful parents who like to live by the clock. With hard aspects share the bad memories are shared as well. They might stay together to remind each other of those bad events or actions. Seldom will this couple kiss in public and in a group they are the ones to regulate things and make the rules. Jennifer Aniston and Angelina Jolie (both related to Brad Pitt) share Moon square Saturn and Sun square Uranus.
Moon in aspect with Uranus in both of the charts tells us about surprises. The relationship can be a flashing one or there are tensions at home all the time. Both long for being different than the other and the share a desire for sensation.
Moon in aspect with Neptune shared: a relationship ending at the couch watching a movie or (with afflictions) ending up in an emotional disaster. These persons share an abnormal need for romance. A bit like in the film, but not like in the real world. Together they long for long voyages and they dream together. For some it is a nightmare (but then other indications must be ‘helpful’)
Moon in aspect with Pluto share is a challenge for daily life. Two little tyrants wanting to have it their way, to eat their favorite food! But they are a closed front when in trouble. A bit like the Bundies! If one of the two has a soft and easy aspect for this person it is a lot easier to have it his or her way then for the one with the hard aspect. The result of that is that the other person shows a lot of anger.
When aspects with Mercury are shared communicating with each other is a vital part of the relationship. Maybe you also do business together.
Mercury-Sun, see Sun aspects. Mercury-Moon, see Moon aspects.
Mercury- Venus: loving to talk with each other!
Mercury and Mars: discussions, opinions colliding (afflicted).British Queen Elisabeth and Prince Charles share Mercury semi square Mars. Volkert van der G. killed Dutch politician Pim Fortuyn. They shared afflictions of Mercury and Mars (their opinions were conflicting).
Mercury and Jupiter: you enjoy traveling or studying together and a wide range of interests.
Mercury and Saturn: sharing the same hard convictions, being serious about that. With hard aspects you are both mistrusting the world outside and that is what joins you.
Mercury and Uranus: differences in opinion are possible, but also learning a foreign language together.
Mercury and Neptune: movies and fantasies are the subject of your conservations. In business there might be a misty way of communicating or something hidden between you.
Mercury and Pluto: sharing a strong idea and it is wise to have the same idea or else there will be a constant drive to convince the other.
Venus-Mars: sharing the same blood (having children together or being related, colleagues sharing the same passion). Prince Charles and his son Harry share Venus sextile Mars.
Venus-Jupiter: sharing the love of traveling together, reading and growing. Your marriage makes you better.
Venus-Saturn: staying together as long as possible because love is a serious thing. And if you break up (possible with conflicts and supported by more indications) the pain is long felt.
Venus-Uranus is for sharing the same love of music, dancing and adventures. Venus-Uranus could be the shared aspect for falling in love for a short period of time.
Venus-Neptune is for the real romantic persons. They like being together in the light of candles, soft music, going to the movies. For how long? As long as it is OK.
Venus-Pluto is for fanatics. When in love they want all or nothing, there are no compromises and often they are jealous or there are other marriage problems. They might start a marriage 'forced' by circumstances. In a group the desire to make money shares them. But, if harmonious, this aspect could indicate 'love till death do us part'. And for experienced fanatics: sharing the same pain.
Mars- Jupiter: procreation, enterprise, drive for progress.
Mars-Saturn: working hard together as long as possible (like Queen Elisabeth and her late mother), sharing the same frustrations, not much fun (unless there are other indications). This aspect might indicate a lack of shared activities.
Mars-Uranus: new experiences in work activities, sport or sex. Male friendships like was the case with the martyrs in Algeria (read that article), who also shared a horrible incident that ended their life. Johann Calvin and his opponent Michael Servetus shared a Mars-Uranus aspect. Servetus (Mars inconjunct Uranus) was killed, Calvin was responsible. They had a controversy.
Mars-Neptune: Being without job, sharing drugs or alcohol or medications. Maybe they are working together in a health or non profit organization. A relationship that does not cheer up…
Mars-Pluto: could be destructive as it is about using power and force. In a team of sportsmen this aspect can empower the joined forces. If both of you have Mars trine Pluto this can make you go for being the ultimate number one in sport or in sex.
Of course more aspects can be shared. The above mentioned interpretations are but examples of possible workouts.
EXAMPLES of relationships of people sharing aspects in their charts
