Composite Moon in the Houses

The Synastry and Composite are the most important charts in relationship astrology.

In the Composite Chart, the Moon represents how the couple processes and expresses feelings and emotions. It can also indicate the areas where the couple will experience the most drama! It indicates what the couple needs to feel supported and loved.

To properly assess the Moon, we look at the sign, house, and aspects the Moon receives. In this article, we will go over how the Composite Moon behaves in different houses.
