The composite chart is a chart of the Relationship formed by two people. It uses mid-points between each person’s planets and points. It is a chart by itself and will be interpreted as a Natal chart. Relationship dynamics are seen in the composite chart.
When you look at a Composite, look at the Ascendant and the house position of the Sun. This will tell why the relationship exists and what will keep it together. The purpose of the Composite is to tell you about how the two people function together, what their relationship means to them and how the chemistry works.
The Composite shows the forces that brought people together and the forces that are pulling them apart. The most important aspects in a Composite Chart are the conjunctions and oppositions (orb 3°).
