While Jim is experimenting with mundane planet-angle contacts in synastry, I (for some weeks) have been pondering about inter-paran contacts.
One example of an inter-paran contact would be X's Mars culminating when Y's Venus rises, at either's natal or relocated locations.
I believe I have 3 examples where this "co-paran" technique works appropriately. But they may not be perfect examples: (BTW, I'm only using partile paran contacts unless stated otherwise.)
Me and my past school crush/obsession:
He was born at 16/01/2001, Klang, Malaysia, birth time unknown.
Now the only real thing that happened between us (besides my indirectly throwing shade at him every once in a while, after I learned that he's taken, and especially after I learned that he dumped his girlfriend and got another one two weeks later ) is that he remained pretty much unresponsive to my affections and feelings from the day I first expressed them, until the end where I lost interest on him. Heck, even while throwing shade at him (which is probably my Saturn to his Mars) he remains just as unresponsive.
The only thing appropriate that speaks of this in our synastry chart is a 4-degree Moon-Saturn square. It tells a lot, I must say.
The above description is very much, well, descriptive of what mainly happened between us, but it's so descriptive, I'm not pleased that our Moon-Saturn is not partile. A 4-degree contact like this may not stand out over other partile contacts between us, like our Moon-Uranus conjunction, Mercury-Uranus square and Mars-Uranus square. Our composite charts do not have anything else to say that's Moon-Saturn-like.MOON-SATURN
Saturn somehow inhibits the Moon from fully expressing her emotions, or remains unresponsive to the latter's sensuous solicitations. Though often present among lifelong friends, it is not particularly conducive to domestic happiness together.
[ADD: Moon wants to "settle in" with Saturn.]
[NOTE: Rather than Saturn inhibiting Moon's emotional expression per se, I'm more inclined to read my current notebooks as showing that Saturn tends to be somewhat removed without being cold. For example (but only one variation), Saturn may be quite affectionate but already committed and "unavailable," or simply not interested except in a casual contact.]
So, coming to my point, it appears that my Moon sets while his Saturn culminates! This means we have a Moon-Saturn co-paran. Every time his Saturn culminates, my Moon mundanely squares it partile. A-ha.
We have a Mercury-Saturn paran too (I'm Saturn). Since he never actually uttered or written/sent a word to me, I don't know how is this manifesting between us, but I think it will be descriptive if we get into a relationship.
And we also have a Sun-Jupiter paran (I'm Jupiter). I don't know about my school crush, but I've always wanted to and have always thought of helping him as much as possible to improve his life. Since I'm older than him, I thought my experiences and knowledge in some areas (even if they're of little worth) might help him in some way. I think this is where the Mercury-Saturn may play out, I ask him to something, he has something to say about it but I don't care as I'm Saturn. He may also feel that I'm too harsh and controlling on him, which would be my Saturn opposing his Mars.
Me and my Dallas crush:
He was born on 20/10/1989, Merced CA. He never knew I existed, obviously, he lives so far away and I only fell for him because I, by circumstance, stumbled upon his facebook account and saw his then-seemed gorgeous face.
The only interaspect that shows I had a "big-time crush" on him is his Uranus partile conjuncting my Mars. It's enough and perfect really, but compared to the synastries I've seen for other teens and their "big-time crushes," they have more appropriate contacts, like Venus to their crush's Uranus (very common!) or Pluto, some Neptune contacts for awkwardness and shyness that's common when someone approaches their crush, and Sun-angle or Mars-angle contacts, especially if the angle is female or a gay male.
These make me think, with only his Uranus to my Mars, was I only sexually/physically attracted to him? I guess so, but isn't physical attraction also usually the case for other "love at first sight" cases, common with Venus-Uranus?
We both have a Sun-Neptune paran (I'm Neptune):
Appropriate and descriptive enough. He did seem like "dessert" and it was most definitely a temporary and coincidental circumstance that made me stumble upon his facebook account and eventually fall for him.SUN-NEPTUNE
In situations that could be romantic or sexual, each finds the other to be a temptation that it is appropriate to indulge in, as if ordering desert. In many cases, temporary circumstances setup the "appropriateness."
And while it's not partile, we both have a Venus-Uranus paran in Merced that's within 2°, i.e. my Venus anticulminates in Merced whenever his Uranus sets there. So there's the Venus contact I was searching for all this while! It;s the only close Venus contact I have to him, and this Venus-Uranus paran also explains the significant 10-year age gap between us.
Finally, me and some guy that I'm fascinated with:
He's born on the 8th of December, 1999, Klang, Malaysia. Birth time yet to be known. He is a double Scorpio.
I am just fascinated by this physical masculine energy I'm getting from him, that I'm also getting from guys that I have strong Mars contacts with. Nothing more, nothing less actually. It may be his double Scorpio luminaries that I'm feeling this masculine energy from, but I know two other double Scorpio men—the one whom I also feel a similar masculine energy from has his Mars on my Descendant, while the other who neither has his Mars nor mine connected, I don't feel his Martian-ness that much. The only thing I feel is his Uranus sesquisquaring my Venus. What I feel from him is actually more of a "freshness and colourfulness" and his "striking beauty" more than the raw, physical feelings I get from men whom I have Mars contacts.
So yeah, the only thing that this double Scorpio's Mars is contacting, is my Nodes (conjunct South Node). Maybe that's where I am getting this Martial feeling from, but I don't really know how do the Nodes behave like in synastry. Do they behave like angles? Or like the Moon? Or like the "angles" of the Moon? Are they negligible? Okay, his Mars conjuncts my Uranus around 3°45', but again, not as close as I think it should be, for me to strongly admire his masculinity, especially when I've already seen many other men whose Marses aspect my Uranus, all partile or near-partile.
After laying out his and my parans on Excel, I soon found out that his Mars rises when my Saturn anticulminates. So we have a Mars-Saturn co-paran. And Mars-Saturn is definitely not an aspect low on its sexual side. Good thing I'm not interested in him or anything. Him being a double-Scorpio, he's obviously straight. Our basic ecliptical synastry is pretty fine actually, so maybe we'd be good friends.
So what do you guys think? Has any one of you tried using paran contacts too in synastry? How did it show? What paran contacts do you have between the people you have significant relationships with? All comments are appreciated very much.
