This month we have a New Moon at 13 Virgo today, Sept 5th and the following Full Moon at 26 Pisces in two weeks, on Sept 19th. I wrote in detail about this September New/Full Moon in a previous article here.
The relationship between President Obama and Russian President Putin are in the spotlight in the news today as they meet at the G20 summit to discuss what to do about Syria. Russia is Syria's ally and does not support Obama's demanding that something be done about the chemical weapons.
Looking at the Composite chart or the chart resulting from the calculation of the planetary midpoints between Obama and Putin reveals something quite striking.
Today's New Moon falls on the Sun of their composite chart while the Full Moon at 26 Pisces later this month falls on their composite Moon - exactly!
Many astrologers use the composite chart along with the synastry chart to analyze a relationship between two people and to foretell future events concerning the two people together.
John Towney, in his book about Composite Charts writes, " . . . the synastry . . . describes more of how two people affect each other, and how they make each other feel . . . the composite chart describes more accurately how the relationship will fare."
The composite Moon in Pisces gives them a psychic connection where they can fully empathize with each other. However, the Moon square the Ascendant could cause some confusion and misunderstandings if they are not very clear with each other and careful not to emotionally overreact to things.
The Mars trine the Ascendant means they they will act well together and get things done. They may have to be careful not to rush into things or get caught up in arguing as that would happen quite frequently in this relationship.
Due to current events in Syria, Obama and Putin have been pitted against each other and are now trying to work out a conclusion that satisfies everyone.
This composite chart and the lunations hitting the all important Lights (Sun and Moon) today and later this month shows that their relationship is at a crucial point and changing this month entirely. The world will be directly affected by the results of their working together.
The New Moon signifies a new chapter in their combined leadership and international policies, falling on the composite Sun in the 9th house. While the Full Moon falling on the composite Moon in Pisces in the 3rd house indicates more communications and actions with policies concerning chemical bombs.
This will be a turning point in U.S. - Russian relations.
