The Moon is emotional and Saturn is logical and in a hard aspect in synastry like an opposition or square, their natures are certainly at odds with one another. That being said, everything in astrology exists in a spectrum of experience and there are positives and negatives that must be considered.
Oh the dreaded 12th house….in SYNASTRY of all things. Few synastry energies give my clients more feelings of fear and dread than to discover their love interest’s planets fall in their 12th house, or their composite chart has 12th house influences.
Having conjunctions with the luminaries (Sun and Moon) and the Ascendant/Descendant axis is one of the more common types of synastry aspects I see in deeply bonded romantic relationships and married couples.
Natal Venus in Virgo folks are usually pretty skilled at the care and feeding of a partner, both literally and metaphorically.

The composite Sun tells us what the relationship needs in order to stay alive and thrive. The SIGN of the Composite Sun tells us HOW the relationship likes to get its vitality. The HOUSE placement of the Composite Sun tells us WHERE in life the relationship likes to get its life force.

Ascendant square ascendant in synastry is a pretty loud energy, honestly, and will likely be felt or seen in a very clear way pretty early on as far as the previous paragraph goes. It can create an environment where you and your partner ANNOY each other with your very different and conflicting reactions to the world around you.
In my earlier videos and blog articles, I think I mentioned twin flames a handful of times. I thought that I could use these words and it would be understood that not everyone means the same thing when they use this term.

This ascendant descendant conjunction does a very interesting thing in the chart. It creates a synastry energy where all the houses for the whole chart are conjunct to their opposite house in the partner’s chart. This really highlights this magnetic quality to this conjunction and creates a situation where each individual holds the balance that the other needs in EVERY astrological energy represented in the houses.
