One of the main lessons of this relationship may be to eventually come to the realization that the true source of moral and ethical valuation lies within each of you. Composite Saturn in Capricorn (or the tenth house) brings out an ambitious and clearminded quality in your relationship, with a strong sense of shared responsibility. Saturn finds its most natural placement here, and together you tend to be especially persistent, careful and calculating, with a strong capacity for mastery and achievement. In a romantic relationship, you may be so achievement oriented that there is a danger of missing out on the more personal goal of simply relating to each other, perhaps because you are working through subconscious fears that if you don't conquer the world first, then it will conquer you instead. The trick is to balance your mutual need for achievement with just being, with no need for anything beyond the sharing of yourselves with each other. As a partnership you tend to be cautious and rarely take chances. You may have difficulties, limitations or delays in the achievement of your joint goals, but your careful approach usually leads to success in the end. When your relationship is at its best, it can help you move from a personal drive for power in the world into an enlightened process of acting for the betterment of society itself. Composite Neptune in Capricorn (11° Cap 32') Composite Neptune in the Ninth House Neptune in the composite chart reveals the area of your shared experience where you will encounter idealization and nebulous spiritual feelings that will lead you to self-discovery. Neptune in the Ninth House (or sign) brings an impressionable, idealistic and highly intuitive quality to your relationship. As a partnership, you two are likely to be inclined to the mystical, and high minded, perhaps seeing life in terms of the poetic rather than the practical.
