Chart Overlay Series
Sun in your Partner’s House (Synastry/Compatibility)
Other than synastry compatibility based off aspects, and of course planets and asteroids, astrology has much more depth in compatibility. In a synastry chart overlay, one person’s natal birth chart is layered on top of another person’s chart to show how your signs, planets, and houses work together. Especially where their planets are in your chart. It’s this that explains why rising signs are so important, you can still use this if you don’t know their time, but you’ll need to know at least one person’s time. You of course will have more understanding with both rising signs. The point is to see where their/your planet falls in your/their chart and the specific house, to see the influence it has on your relationship and bond. Remember to take both combinations of yours and theirs together. If you don’t know their rising and therefore their houses, look at their planets in your houses for now. These are the characteristic of their/your sun, in your/their house:
Your sun in their first
A really good blend of energies, as it builds self-confidence in each other because of how complimentary this placement is. Both of you seem to click together very well because of how alike you guys are to each other, always being on the same page. In fact, you guys probably drive each other to do the best. The sun has a strong sense of expression that opens the first house person thirst to do the same; it’s often a cooperating energy or competitive energy. I definitely think their is potential to click well though, similarities smoothen and compliment the bond like icing on the cake; there is a promise of attraction.
Your sun in their second
The sun person admires the house person a lot and builds their esteem. It makes them feel loved and talented so in turn the house person spoils and treasures the sun person. It can help put the house person’s energy to create more material security. The problem is that the Sun person may become too dependent financially on the house person and make them feel used, or the house person can become too dependent on the sun person to build self-esteem. All in all, this is the house of possessions so you guys help each other financially grow and feel secure. This isn’t necessarily all work and no play, you guys desire each other a lot and can become possessive of each other.
Your sun in their third
Both of you will have strong mental connection, creating intellectual rapport and similar interests. Their won’t be many misunderstandings, as the sun person makes the house person feel understood. There’s promise of deep talks and conversations that seem endless and have no expiration timing, they could go on forever. It also means that you guys can communicate well in other forms other than verbal communication, such as writing, texting, and perhaps ways a long-distance relationship can benefit from. This placement actually plays well if you guys are around each other physically, as you guys feel very comfortable with each other. It’s not an emotional connection, so make sure planets or other overlays form that.
Your sun in their fourth
It may feel like a deep and meaningful connection, almost an instant attraction. You often find home within each other, and perhaps make each other get a taste of home or family that’s far away. The house person makes the sun person feel comfortable with talking about family and other deep issues/topics ,letting them confine to the house person. The sun person always wants to protect and defend the house person, as the house person is deeply sensitive towards them. You both can be emotional dependent on each other, as it lets out the youthful aura in the house person. Regardless there is a strong connection between you two.
Your sun in their fifth
It’s a very playful and beautiful overlay; it unleashes love, playfulness, romance, and so much more. Both of you are active together and perhaps risky, always having fun in life. The problem is you look at this house for dating (dating is short-term) so you have to make sure the flame doesn’t die out, because it’ll be frustrating for you both when the honeymoon phase dies out (of course other placements matter). You guys may want children, and this can be challenged if the sun is harshly aspected. Both of you may be jealous and possessive but this is more shown from the sun person. Nonetheless you both have romance boiling between each other with a zest of fun. It screams fire, just like the sign ruling this house.
Your sun in their sixth
With this overlay, you have to be careful not to give too much servitude to each other as it can go unbalanced, as one can do too much. You guys seem to build and understand an orderly routine together, even if it’s discussing work or helping each other with health and/or other duties. You guys may be critical of each other. The sun person can help their health a lot, as their efforts in work too. It makes me paint the picture that you both are reliable and stable to each other, it’s very supportive. Difficult aspects can make many of these things a burden, like being completely criticized and overly watched over. Almost like being babied, yet this placement works between with flowing aspects between personal planets. As I said, it’s highly supportive.
Your sun in their seventh
You both have traits that you both admire in each other, yet balance each other out in the areas you guys lack in. This placement indicates respect, admiration, romance, support, and a strong connection between each other. You both love each other’s company and yet help each other blossom in the world too. This placement is great for not only partnerships, but business too. The strong, “meant to be connection” is more felt for the house person,as the sun person has traits of the ideal partner they need. The sun person has to be wary about this because they’ll demand more alone time and be protective as well. The match can also go downhill and have lots of resentment and more. Nonetheless it’s a magnetic attraction that can go both ways depending on how you allow it to manifest.
Your sun in their eighth
You guys can make great financial partners or/and the sexual attraction sizzles between you guys; the sun person helps the eighth house person go through the transformation their 8th calls them to do so. The sun person is deeply, deeply attracted to the house person that it often feels magnetizing. Or the sun person can feel uneasy with the house person. The affect is more detectable on the house person, as you affect them greatly. The house person sees the connection as very intimate and strong. They have more sensitivity towards their partner but the problem is that the sun person may not feel the same, yet they can (it goes both ways).
Your sun in their ninth
Extremely, extremely good for romantic compatibly. You’d except the seventh to be but that’s merely the house of opposites and learning from the partner. The ninth house is of second marriages which makes sense. In fact I rather have my partner have their sun in my 9th than 7th (why would you want the first, when you can have the last). The Ninth house is about everything being elevated; truth, expansion, growth, happiness, and profound love. In the long run you want a love that has respect, shared ideals, and makes you feel hope. This person has a high possibility of being your life long partner, because the relationship is constantly growing and expanding. It never gets stale. You two inspire each other and share many ideals. In fact, you guys help each other open the eyes about world. It’s like becoming a newborn baby and exploring every layer and corner of the world, mentally and physically. There’s also a possibility of adventure between you two, is this the person you travel the world with? Possibly so.
Your sun in their tenth
The sun person values the house person’s identity a lot in society. The house person may see you as someone with status or class. The problem is not a lot of attraction can fizzle here, but that depends on compatibility as a whole. Such as other planets in the houses and the compatibility of the planets together itself. You guys inspire and improve each other’s work, pushing each other. This is much more evidently done by the sun person. You have to be careful not to be overbearing or overwhelming for the house person. The sun person may feel strongly awed by the house person; they admire you, want the qualities you have, and have the desire to impress you. You’re the sun person’s precious gem. The sun person may even be more responsible and patient with you. In return, you help them with their career and ambitions a lot, something they want. There’s a lot of admiration between you guys but other aspects and placements will help build more chemistry.
Your sun in their eleventh
You both want friendship and find it in each other, finding an equal in each other. Both of you may share common interest and even friends. It helps you guys express your individuality, freedom, and greatness, often creating a relationship that is even a “best friend” bond. Both of you are nonjudgmental of each other but at the same time you have to look for other aspects and placements because you guys might just see each other as only friends, which doesn’t necessarily have to happen but it can. I feel like air signs would benefit from this, in a sense of gaining comfort and freedom with a partner.
Your sun in their twelfth
Both of you are fascinated by each other, but it’s this mysterious aura that can cause misunderstandings under the illusive charm this overlay creates. The sun person is capable of making the house person feel an array of emotions. It’s a sacrificial match as the house person can give up much; it can cause heartache and it also may cause the relationship to be too private or a secret as well. Nonetheless, and just like the 12th house, it can be highly rewarding. There can be a strong karmic connection between the two. The sun person can put the house person on many, and sometime extreme, emotional highs and lows. Yet the sun person helps them discover themselves when the waves aren’t crashing in. In return the house person makes the sun person dig deeper to discover themselves too. It’s a very spiritual and sensitive bond, yet confusing. It’s highly influential.
