Dear friends:

        Welcome to the Compatibility and Conflict Report for Business and Friendship and the myriad ways of expressing the continual dance of relationship. This report is based on methods employed through years of working with relationships of all kinds, observing them and analyzing the lives of the famous and infamous. The contacts described in this program are certainly not all the combinations possible between two individuals. But they are the core patterns of relationship analysis that I begin with in determining areas of compatibility and potential conflict between individuals. These basic points of contact are analyzed to arrive at an interpretation of what is central for a strong relationship or for one that teaches something of importance and leaves a lasting impression.

        In many of the interpretations, I've described the highest potential that one can strive for with a particular combination. Yet this is only a potential and being human we have complex emotions and contradictory issues and reactions at any given time in our lives. Use this report as a guide to make your relationships as rewarding and fulfilling as you possibly can while knowing that your relationships are simply mirroring your own soul's struggles. Each relationship will fulfill something within you and challenge you to look at your shadow and transform yourself. Sometimes this means staying in a relationship and sometimes the learning process requires that you let the relationship go. These decisions are never easy and they should only be made after careful and truthful introspection, reflection and guidance. But ultimately, these decisions are yours and yours alone to make. Remember that although you may have some difficult areas of relating with a particular person, it is in those areas that you can learn the most about yourself and others and grow in wisdom. It would be a mistake to look for a business partner or friend with whom you have no disagreements at all and this kind of relationship is a fantasy, rarely if ever, a reality.

        Thank you for purchasing the  report and I hope it is meaningful and useful to you.

        Special thanks to John Flagg for unflagging editorial support.

Chapter 1: Bonds For Energy, Fun and Lasting Impressions

        This section is based on the idea that there are three basic needs in every relationship:

        Interest, energy and stimulation.

        Enjoyment, abundance, expansion of awareness/possibilities and sense of contentment or happiness.

        Commitment, consistency, teaching each other, sharing values or reaffirming/confirming something essential in each other.

        The sort between your charts is for eleven separate aspects that define energy, fun and lasting impressions between you. Most strong relationships have at least four to six of these aspects between their charts.

George W.'s Sun Trine Richard B.'s Moon:

        Core Themes: With an easy aspect of the Sun and Moon between your charts, there is an instant recognition of familiarity and compatibility. You naturally like each other and enjoy each other's company. You share some very similar attitudes, habits, likes and dislikes. You reflect and expand each other's instinctive and emotional behaviors. You may find yourselves saying the same things simultaneously or even having the same thoughts at the same time. Clearly, you will experience being comfortable with each other more often than not whenever you are together.

        There will be many areas where you will readily agree with each other, yet at the same time, be sure to allow yourselves to have your differences. This smooth way of relating that you generate so naturally will serve you well when you come up against difficulties or obstacles. You have a day-to-day ease and familiarity that sustains you. With this combination, you will tend to reflect each other well and enjoy each other's personality and ways of expressing yourselves, which makes working together natural and pleasant. Often you will feel joined by the other in stimulating ways and volley energy back and forth in a way that's satisfying and makes you smile. You have many of the same likes, dislikes, attitudes and sensibilities, possibly similar backgrounds. There is a natural understanding of each other's essential being. The intent of this aspect is to create ease and harmony between you.

George W.'s Moon Sextile Richard B.'s Mars:

        Core Themes: You feel more energized, even exhilarated when you are in each other's company. In fact, the intent of this aspect is to activate your moods and stimulate new feelings in each of you. Perhaps, even feelings you have never felt before or not felt in a long time. There is always likely to be a charge of energy between you and, you have a way of reaching each other on a deeply emotional level. There is a healthy, normal tendency to confront issues that arise between you. Resolving conflict will be easier to handle with this aspect.

        Because you generate energy when you are together, the two of you can be counted upon to take action or be in the lead, especially when you are part of a team or group. In fact, you may be involved in social causes or any project where goal setting and forward progress are necessary. Although there is a marvelous, naturally occurring energy between you, don't allow habit to make it dull. Be sure to plan new projects together to regenerate and rejuvenate your business relationship. With a bit of conscious awareness, this aspect is excellent for trading new ideas and enhancing any partnership projects. You will both encourage an atmosphere of aliveness and vitality when you are together. The expression of emotion between you is typically direct or candid and in that way describes a healthy release of emotions. Beyond the work you commit yourselves to, there's more than enough fun and laughter.

George W.'s Asc in Leo and Richard B.'s 7th House in Leo:

        Core Themes: With this aspect, you will feel an easy natural relating when you are together. Although your approaches may differ, you will often complement each other. The intent of this aspect is to focus and strengthen your ability to relate harmoniously without giving up individuality within relationship. The ASC's personality reflects what the DSC person is in part seeking from relationship with others and vice versa.

        Even though it's true that your natural approaches to people and projects differ, you have much to offer each other in a complementary way. What one overlooks the other will pick-up and vise versa until before you know it; you operate like a well-oiled machine. Be sure to give praise and credit where it's due, so as to avoid getting locked into only a single way to get things done. If you're working together on a project, play to each other's strength, allow each other to take on the role most suited and you will win the day. This is the classic "complementary opposites" situation, with a great deal to offer both of you.

Richard B.'s Sun Opp George W.'s Asc.:

        Core Themes: This aspect challenges each of your normal ways of expressing your personality and character. The essence of this aspect asks you to allow each other to be who you are and express yourselves freely, without undue interference from the other. At the same time, the aspect will challenge your ability to tolerance different ways of expressing and approaching life situations.

        Your interaction will, at times, be uncomfortable because of an initial inability to understand where the other is coming from on an important issue. It will take a greater measure of tolerance and respect for differences before you attain a working harmony in this association. Alleviate the potential challenges by really listening to your colleague, appreciating who this person is and what he or she is trying to accomplish. You may discover something you didn't know before. Frequently, you will be going in different, even opposing directions. There is no law of interaction that says you must always approach things in only one particular way.

Richard B.'s Venus Square George W.'s Jupiter:

        Core Themes: The intent of this aspect is to expand the full potential of your creative expression while still taking into account possible consequences and risk factors. There is no expansion or expression without universal feedback and this aspect teaches you responsibility for your use of energy, your own, or others. You seek variety, as this is a renaissance energy and you can tolerate a fair amount of risk-taking. Your over-optimism, however, and somewhat laissez-faire attitude, are like wearing rose-colored glasses and you'll need to take them off now and then to deal with the important practical realities of life.

        Essentially positive, expansive, generous and joyful, this aspect between your charts generates its share of exaggeration and excess, if not handled carefully. This is the classic, "too much of a good thing". The truth could be inflated, unnecessary risks taken with resources or sometimes by adopting a lazy or careless attitude. Guard against taking too much for granted, or misjudgment because you may easily lose something that's valuable. If expectations are too high, or you've promised more than you can deliver, it could damage your business reputation. Be aware of boasting or showing off, since it is likely to bring you the opposite of what you want. The general impulse is for improvement in your business associations. However, the compulsion of this aspect may be to get it all at once. Take the time to discern the experiences and influences that really matter and look at the long term, at least part of the time. There will always be the urge to push the envelope, and it's up to the two of you to decide when that's in the best interests of business or not.

Richard B.'s and George W.'s Mars and Jupiter in mutual soft aspect:

        Core Themes: The intent of this aspect is expansion of knowledge and aptitude through a variety of learning adventures including writing, publishing, promotion, sales, sports or religion. The end result is to attain wisdom and a greater capacity for self-expression - "to be the best you can be". The impulse is for improvement and breaking previous records or boundaries in whatever field you choose.

        You are together to motivate, expand and develop your project, to take charge and lead yourselves and others into new territories of experience in your business goals - mentally or even spiritually. You can spread optimism according to your means and you may be philanthropic. There's great joy, good will and possibility in this combination and, as partners, the two of you will continually see the silver lining in any black clouds that drift your way. In a business partnership, benefit and opportunity comes to you from this association. Whatever project you are working on, the impetus is to expand its influence and develop connections to further promote and publicize the product or service. It is your positive attitude that will earn the support of others. Don't make the mistake of resting on your laurels. Be sure to maintain the quality of your product or service.

George W.'s Moon Square Richard B.'s Venus:

        Core Themes: With an overall tendency to good fortune and harmony, this aspect brings up issues concerning shared values and mutual support. Social connections and interactions are favored and favorable. The intent of this aspect is to address the issues of ease, cooperation and consideration in all interactions and associations and to come to terms with one's value system.

        Although there is kinship between you, you may feel undervalued, misunderstood or poorly treated by your associate or business partner. The fondness is there but you'll have to work on the breach of respect or any damage to self-esteem caused by you or your partner. It's important that you put effort into acknowledging the good qualities that each of you has, even though they may be very different from your own. When you are in conflict make sure you don't disparage your partner just because you don't like their choices or values. Be sure to give credit where and when it is due. It's easy to take the good graces and support of your partner for granted but it does harm to the good will of your relationship long term. The purpose of this aspect is to teach you cooperation, negotiation and compromise even in small everyday matters and choices.

Chapter 2: Emotions and Communication

        The following aspects detail the quality of your emotional connection, your basic level of comfort and your ease or difficulty in communicating, and discussing emotions and simply understanding where each of you is coming from. Additionally, these aspects help describe how you reason together and resolve issues or problems.

George W.'s Moon in Libra, and Richard B.'s is in Pisces:

        Core Themes: Dissimilar emotional needs are indicated and to some extent different dispositions. Some of each other's daily habits can be annoying or irritating, making sharing the same physical spaces for long periods of time more difficult. In matters of timing, it is likely that, occasionally, you will be on a different page than your partner and operate on another timing pattern. The intent of this aspect is to find your way to emotional understanding despite different sensibilities and to respect the feelings of the other person although unlike your own.

        Although you are fond of each other on many levels, your basic day-to-day habits are probably very different. You approach life's mundane chores and happenings in ways that may not be clearly understood by your partner. Your feelings and responses can sometimes be confusing for the other person as much as they like you and want to understand. This can cause not only friction but also frustration on a regular basis in the course of working together. Your habits and peculiarities can grate on each other and be the cause of arguments and misunderstandings. If you need to work together, it behooves you to practice patience and show willingness to compromise so as to resolve some of these differences. This aspect definitely requires more tolerance and acceptance, to allow for differences in mood and reaction. You have attracted this combination because of your own need to dig deeper into your habitual ways of responding and to search out the roots of your behavior by exploring your upbringing. There are many things you do that are unconscious and automatic, and contact with your partner will allow you to take a closer look, modify the negatives and also reaffirm your strongest feelings.

George W.'s Mercury in Leo, and Richard B.'s is in Aquarius:

        Core Themes: Outlook, perspective or styles of problem solving, even communicating, are the core of this aspect.  This combination is more challenging because your mode of thinking and communicating tends to be quite different. The intent of this energy combination is to resolve issues of communication, speaking, reasoning etc., so that you can reach solutions and conclusions in creative and original ways.

        Although you are associates or business partners, there are times when one of you will have great difficulty in figuring out where the other is coming from and what she or he is trying to tell you. Your styles of communication can be very different. The premise upon which you base your reasoning or the logic you use will often perplex your partner. Especially if you have to decide on projects or activities together, your differences can quickly become an issue between you. Talking things through slowly, step by step, will help each of you to understand how the other arrived at his or her opinion or conclusion. This will take patience but in the end will be worth it. What's more, by taking the time to really understand how your partner is thinking, you can not only learn something important about your partner but also get a different perspective yourself. And you will learn how your communication affects others, since your partner is probably not the only one who can't always understand what you're trying to say or figure out your logic. Your interaction will allow you to fine-tune your own thought processes and become more adept and flexible in the ways you communicate with others. This will be doubly useful if you are in a business that requires writing, speaking or regularly communicating with others.

Chapter 3: Fulfilling Each Other's Relationship Needs

        These aspects explain how you meet each other's needs in important business or friendship partnerships. These aspects are based on what your natal chart describes that you're looking for in any major one-on-one relationship interaction.

George W.'s Mercury Opp Richard B.'s 7th house ruler, Sun:

        Core Themes: The intent of this aspect is to encourage the generation of new ideas and thought processes for creative pursuits, advancement and recognition. You are stimulated by and seek or discuss ideas and information when you are together.

        You will probably share many thought-provoking conversations, which can naturally lead to work projects. You stimulate ideas in each other and also the creative juices to translate them into new, original or existing tasks. The essence of the aspect is information and communication and how you will use it to advance your career goals. This is a sparkling and creative combination. Your lives could revolve around teaching, learning or any type of position in the wide fields of communications, advertising, promotion or education. If you generously give credit where it's due and avoid excess pride, stubborn entrenchment and posturing, your partnering has all the elements of being prosperous. The quality of your communication with each other will be vital to the success of your relationship and your business projects, so take the time to have meaningful discourse on a regular basis. Be sure to resolve breaches in communication as rapidly and as effectively as possible. The breakdown of normal channels of communication between you will harm your relationship. Keep those connections open.

George W.'s Neptune Trine Richard B.'s 7th house ruler, Sun:

        Core Themes: The intent of this combination is to increase your awareness of fantasy, illusion, deception, etc, and the role these factors play in your life. The aspect also seeks to teach you how to transform confusion, stress and chaos into peace, sensitivity, faith and inner strength.

        This can be an inspiring and positive association or it can mean that there is escapism, denial, deception or even illusion somewhere in your business partnership. Guard against the negative implications of this aspect by being totally honest with each other and speaking about your doubts and confusions, especially if something is unclear in your work together. Make sure that you're willing to accept your partner's flaws and that your expectations are not unreasonable. Speak up and don't expect your business partner to read your mind. Focusing a portion of your business on charity contributions in some way will satisfy some of this aspect's need for compassion and caring. Of course, charity begins at home, so make sure you recognize the needs of your employees and are treating everyone fairly. Be aware that this combination can produce projection issues, so be sure that you own your part in any disputes or arguments. No doubt this can be a tricky aspect but it can also be a deeply inspiring, sensitive and intuitive one. Use the positives minimize the negatives.

George W.'s Pluto Opp Richard B.'s 7th house ruler, Sun:

        Core Themes: The intent of this aspect is to bring you more in touch with what moves and motivates you by understanding your reactions. The aspect stimulates you to maximize your potential, increase your empowerment and resources and, learn how be vulnerable and strong at the same time.

        Strong emotions for power, influence, mastery and accumulation draw you together. You will feel compelled and desire to accomplish big things to influence your world. The motives you employ will be important to your overall success and happiness. With this aspect, you can encounter control and power issues in your business partnership. It's possible that one or both of you has strong aspirations to be a leader in your chosen field or perhaps even in the political arena. There could be financial or other resource issues that you need to resolve between you. Be aware of the projections that you cast on each other from your own complex psychological makeup. Make sure you're willing to own up to your stuff instead of blaming it on your partner. There is great depth and attachment between you but there could just as easily be obsessiveness or jealousy. Realizing that you can only control yourself should alleviate your need to control your partner and risk driving him or her away. Compulsiveness is another pattern that could crop up in your business partnership. This isn't essentially detrimental, but depends on how it's applied and whether the other partner can tolerate it.

George W.'s Asc. Opp Richard B.'s 7th house ruler, Sun:

        Core Themes: The intent of this aspect is to spark each of you to express your individuality fully and yet find ways to balance a strong and generous relationship. You will find lots of common ground together both in your outlook and perception of life and in the way you interact with it and with others.

        Together, you affirm each other's personality and basic style and you are highly motivated to find harmony in your business relationship. Unless one of you always wants to lead or be right, this can serve as a reinforcing aspect. You will no doubt feel the strong impact you have on each other's lives and you will want to translate that impact into projects you lead as a team. Although you won't always agree, you will stimulate each other to assess your direction, goals and lifestyle, one way or the other.

Richard B.'s Moon Square George W.'s 7th house ruler, Uranus:

        Core Themes: The intent of this aspect is to sharpen your awareness of the bigger picture, to encourage you to support basic human freedoms and to feel comfortable being different and creatively authentic.

        Your combination of energies stimulates unique perception, thinking out-of-the-box and originality. That's some of why you'll be attracted to each other and want to collaborate. You spark each other's creative juices and wonderful results will emerge from your combined energies. It's vital for both of you to craft a life that allows for your independence of spirit and creativity. Sometimes this means that you are self-employed or have creative freedom at your job. If the two of you decide to team up, maintaining a certain level of independent work and autonomy will probably be necessary. Because your energies are widespread, you will often be invited to participate in the greater community somehow. This is better than keeping yourselves distant or aloof from others in your own ivory tower. Your perceptions of the status quo are often shocking to others, and you can become involved in controversy.

Richard B.'s Mercury Trine George W.'s 7th house ruler, Uranus:

        Core Themes: The intent of this aspect is to have you believe in the power of the mind, the influence of communication and within that, the expression and development of your true and authentic voice.

        You may find that what initially attracted you to your partner was a great sense of humor and the easy banter you exchanged. The way you communicate with each other will become a central part of your relationship. When you are together, you will spark each other's intellect and influence each other creatively. This pattern, therefore, is best suited to aspects of business where brainstorming, verbal or written communication is of greatest importance. Sales and advertising are yet other possibilities. There's a tendency to want to speak your mind openly and honestly, which may be too much for some people at times. Guard against intellectual pride and being too rigid in holding on to a particular idea. You can accomplish great strides together provided you leave excess pride out of it. You can be seen as eccentric, offbeat or even controversial. Choose your battles wisely, because you could be drawn into questionable or unsettling situations. This combination for business is highly creative and could be just the boost your business needs to become leader of the pack.

Richard B.'s Mars Opp George W.'s 7th house ruler, Uranus:

        Core Themes: The intent of this aspect is to break new ground, take the high road and seek the truth in all your initiatives and interactions. There's a natural rebelliousness and desire to buck the system in this combination that you will need to negotiate.

        The unpredictability factor in this combination will create quite sudden changes in each of you. You definitely keep each other awake. Being respectful of each other and giving each other the space to do your own thing are necessary conditions of working together. Feeling hemmed in or restricted will cause disruptive behavior. The combined energies you generate can mean the difference between night and day. This energy is nothing if not innovative and original. So harness the powerful, alert and advanced consciousness you generate in each other by sharing your gifts within a group or organization of like-minded individuals. If you apply these energies, you can be leaders with a unique perception of the future, at the cutting edge of your field. Be sure to respect each other's right to be different, to be the individuals you are. Conforming to someone else's opinion of what is best is not typically your way. Excitement follows you, or you create it and bring fresh ideas to any occasion.

Chapter 4: Your Closest Contacts, Your Strongest Themes

        This section interprets the closest connections between your charts. The wisdom of this section says that the closest aspects explain the major or central themes of your relationship and the reason you have come together. The nature of these aspects will also define the main activities, interests and patterns that affect your relationship life together.

        Notice that, in this section, each paragraph contains both the easier expression of energies and the more challenging ones. Both interpretations are included because these close connections pertain to the central learning curve of your relationship. Based on the premise that the more exact the connection (also the closest energetic contact) between your pair of planets, the more psychologically significant the aspect will be for each of you. This means that you are likely to be strongly influenced by each other in the areas described. Because of this, it will be useful to consider both the easier and more challenging interpretations even though you lead with one of them. You will, from time to time and in various circumstances, probably exhibit some elements of each interpretation, both the easier expressions as well as the more challenging ones. Another thing - it's possible with both types of aspects that you will have the same challenges but simply respond or react to them in different ways. The goal is to rise to the best possible expression of each combination. This is the learning curve and this bestows the necessary wisdom to develop your relationship.

George W.'s Mercury Conj Richard B.'s 7th house cusp:

        Core Themes: If this is the most exact aspect between your charts, your main relationship theme concerns fully expressing and developing the quality of your communication skills within your relationships with others. You are recognized by your ability to engage in conversation with almost anyone.

        Challenging aspects: Communicating and connecting with others is the highlight of your relationship. You crave the stimulation of people and varied activity. Because your interests range across many fields, too many activities can have you running hither and yon, often exhausting yourselves in the process. Take some time to digest your experience before you go after more. Your constant communication can sometimes get in the way of really talking through the important issues by avoiding the deeper stuff. This will keep your relationship just on the surface, which may not be satisfying in the long run or useful for your business dealings. Avoid talking at people and practice talking with them.

        Easier aspects: How you communicate with each other will be a central feature of your relationship. Communication is likely to come easily and humor and wit are part of this combination. Because of the focus and value placed on reasonable communication, any issues that arise will be more easily resolved. Use this natural asset in your business negotiations to charm colleagues or clients and express clearly what you can offer that others can't. You will seek many activities and experiences to stimulate your mind and create occasions for sharing opinions and thoughts. It's very possible that you partner together to write, teach or in other ways communicate what you wish to share with others.

Richard B.'s Sun Opp George W.'s Mercury (challenging aspect):

        Core Themes: If this is your most exact aspect, the primary theme of your relationship involves communication and connecting with others through: curiosity, thinking and perspectives, versatility, variety of activities, and the gathering and distributing of information.

        Challenging aspects: Communication is an integral ingredient in your relationship but at times getting your point across can be frustrating. You may have vastly different perspectives but if you shift your thinking this can turn out to be highly creative problem solving. Communication is so relevant that making an extra effort to seek out social relationships and activities involving learning is recommended. At times, your varied interests will clash and prevent you from being in the same place at the same time and cause one or both of you annoyance. You will need to monitor this situation so that you do not say things you'll regret, especially out of hurt pride.

        Easier aspects: You will stimulate each other's thinking and generate ideas and likely understand each other quite well most of the time. In your business relationship, seeking social relationships and ways of connecting with others will enhance and benefit the energy you generate together. Wittiness, a kind of lighthearted humor and simply talking with each other about many topics will be the gift you share as a team and an important aspect of how you relate to each other. Together, you bring a fresh curiosity into everyday problem solving.

Richard B.'s Sun Opp George W.'s Pluto (challenging aspect):

        Core Themes: If this is the most exact aspect between your charts, your main relationship theme centers on the expression and understanding of your power, empowerment, desire, motivation, the development of your resources and harnessing your personal demons.

        Challenging aspects: You will learn much about expressing your personal power, especially in relationship with your business partners or associates. Although you may feel strongly about your point of view, trying to manipulate others typically backfires. You will have to learn how to yield to other ways of doing things from time to time. Instead, seek to understand and develop yourself, to get more of what you want. Grasping too tightly and a fear of losing will likely bring you the losses you feared. Releasing whatever no longer works in your life can be difficult, but a relief once you learn to let go. Although you will struggle with your desires and motives to create a fulfilling life, if you focus your energies in a positive way and keep your intentions clear, you will get what you want without alienating others.

        Easier aspects: You are likely to be quite creatively resourceful as a team for any business project. You stimulate each other to bring forth and develop the desires and resources you possess to fuel business projects and goals. Evolving and marketing your talents will be easier for you than most. You appear to have an instinct for knowing what to do when and to persuade others to be on your side. Resolving inevitable conflicts and transforming outworn patterns will be easier for you. Thinking big comes naturally and, once you've pinpointed your goal, you tend to focus on developing winning strategies. Your ability to analyze a situation is increased and your instinct for cutting your losses is excellent.

George W.'s Pluto Conj Richard B.'s 7th house cusp:

        Core Themes: If this is the most exact aspect between your charts, your main relationship themes are developing your strength and empowerment, overcoming struggles and understanding yourself and others through awareness of motives, desires, intentions and behavior patterns.

        Challenging aspects: The combined energy you project is powerful and persuasive and you seem to know exactly what you want. However, the intensity of your drives and desires can be too much for some people. Be aware that you sometimes come on too strong and create results just the opposite from what you wanted. Give people a chance to get to know you before you overwhelm them with all the details of your trials and tribulations. You almost want acceptance too much and don't handle rejection well. On the other hand, don't anticipate or suspect rejection when it isn't there. Learning to control your negative reactions is a big issue. Until you know yourself better and have a grip on your overreaction or your need to control life, your plans may fail and your business relationships may suffer. Self-healing and building self-esteem are issues you will struggle with on some level.

        Easier aspects: Being business partners or working closely as colleagues transforms each of you by activating the use of latent potentials and resources. You will be challenged and encouraged to continuously develop and expand your abilities. The close bond you forge as a team is empowering and sustaining. Together, you seek and desire to accomplish big things and you are willing to work passionately to succeed. Your intense focus and ability to overcome setbacks is remarkable. Others will recognize your skill in making things happen and will solicit you for their projects. You will quickly realize that your success is the result of your joint efforts and the pooling of resources and couldn't have happened without the "value added" of your partner. Forging powerful and influential alliances is your strongest skill. Your magnetic personality and your uncanny instinct make people willing to align themselves with you. It is the support of these allies that will enable the success of your larger projects.

George W.'s Venus Square Richard B.'s Uranus (challenging aspect):

        Core Themes: If this is the most exact aspect between your charts, your main relationship themes concern sensitivity, compassion, forgiveness and the power of the unseen through symbols and imagination. There is a reverence for life's mystery or faith.

        Challenging aspects: You are blessed with an ability to understand, experience and be open to life's special magic and a deeper understanding of its mysteries. The other side of this hypersensitivity is the dislike of conflict or confrontation, which can lead to various avoidance, neglect or substance abuse behaviors as ways to escape from various disappointments. Refuse to become a victim of your emotional sensitivities. Learn to trust your intuition, rather than ignore it, to keep you from questionable experiences in business practices or with business partnerships. Although your feelings can be confused or conflicted or you can be plagued by doubts, seek to speak the truth insofar as you know it to avoid giving your partner the wrong signals. Deliberate untruthfulness would be damaging to your long-term business relationships. The same with persistent avoidance of problems in your business -- the longer you refuse dealing with issues, the worse they get.

        Easier aspects: The particular skill you bring to your business relationships is that of emotional intelligence. You have an uncanny grasp of human behavior and more than your fair share of compassion and sensitivity. A tendency to be idealistic and to strive for perfection is an inspiration to those you lead or have contact with in business life. Listening to your instincts when dealing with clients or associates gives you an edge because although you may not be able to fully pinpoint the source of your feelings, you are quite likely to know whom you can trust. You understand that sometimes life works in symbols or in strange coincidences and synchronicity and that there is wisdom in such phenomena. Faith and a spiritual practice are important ingredients in your lives, and you are likely to use spiritual principles in the way you conduct your business. It's possible you inspire others through support of the arts, through a service or caring profession or specific community work. Giving back is a closely held value.

Richard B.'s Venus Square George W.'s MC (challenging aspect):

        Core Themes: If this is the most exact aspect between your charts, your main relationship theme is using your negotiation and cooperative skills in business or domestic situations and community affairs.

        Challenging aspects: Awareness is at a high level with regard to all your important life relationships. You may feel conflict between your personal relationship needs and the demands of your career. Finding a balance between your job commitments and your family relationships is always somewhat of a struggle for you, but attempting to resolve the imbalance is worthwhile and vital to your well being. Your social activities can either alleviate the imbalance or bring some needed relief and relaxation. Do not be needlessly concerned or compare yourselves to what others have or what they do. Living within the means of your business budget is admirable in itself.

        Easier aspects: Your ability to engage socially is your strongest talent. You know how to make others feel at ease, supported and cared for. People will want to work for you, because not only are you fair but you provide a pleasant work environment. Others notice and admire your standard business commitment to fair commerce and cooperative relationships. It's possible you win recognition for your excellent business practices. Showing appreciation to your employees or business associates is another natural behavioral gift that you've developed. Your social connections are many, and it's likely that you love the arts, music and good food and occasionally weave these activities into your business environment.

Richard B.'s Mars Sextile George W.'s Jupiter (easier aspect):

        Core Themes: If this is the most exact aspect between your charts, your main relationship theme is to challenge yourselves and take risks based on your ideals and dreams. Expanding and stretching previous boundaries through education, travel and sports are other expressions.

        Easier aspects: By all accounts, you appear to have the golden touch. This is obviously very useful in your business dealings. Either it's the way you present things, in a philosophical, easygoing or wise manner or the way that your energy engages others to believe and support you. All this may seem easy to you and you may be prone to take it for granted. But resting on your laurels could make you lazy and even have you feel entitled. That would be a mistake. Keep the energy you share together enthusiastic and positively motivated. You easily encourage others to take greater risks for themselves and are an inspiration to those who want to excel. Generosity and a willingness to lend a hand characterize your business associations and dealings. Protect this trust you receive from others. You will seek to learn, travel and, in general, make the most of your opportunities. Sports activity or sponsorship of some kind could be a way you support the community at large.

        Challenging aspects: In your enthusiasm, you can be excessive and prone to exaggerated words and actions. Although many opportunities will come your way, you may not recognize them or you may choose unwisely. At times, pushing the envelope means you're willing to go further than most, even "out on a limb". This common energy you share willingly takes risks and takes chances, but remember to analyze the potential consequences first. At other times, you can alienate clients or business associates with your bravado, "shooting from the hip," and  "know it all" attitude. Through trial and error, you will understand just how far you can go in various situations. Curb exaggeration and simply focus on being the best you can be. In important decisions, take time to consider all the facts before you commit yourselves. And then, keep your promises.

George W.'s Mars Trine Richard B.'s Saturn (easier aspect):

        Core Themes: If this is the most exact aspect between your charts, your main relationship themes are commitment, protection, mastery and integrity and pursuing your goals with determination and persistence.

        Easier aspects: In business you will not leave things to chance, because your energies require planning, organizing and preparation. You prefer to err on the side of caution and are generally not impetuous or prone to rushing into situations. In addition, you will quickly want to know where you stand in your business relationships and partnerships. Making a commitment and having business contracts is the preferred and sensible way for you to be in partnership with each other. Each of you must feel secure and protected in any business contracts you sign and in the way you delegate how the work is to be divided. Precision and excellence will distinguish the work you undertake as business partners. You are of the opinion that if it is worth doing at all, it is worth doing well. Reaching for excellence encourages others and sets an example. Others will admire and emulate, if not your achievements, then certainly your style.

        Challenging aspects: There's a seriousness with which you approach life and your business together. At times this seriousness can mean you are too negative in your viewpoint. Be aware of that tendency and seek professional help to bring balance to your attitude. Still, you are likely to face obstacles and challenges together that, at times, will test your commitment and strength. But you do have the endurance to overcome tough times. Maintain your integrity and, with persistence and determination, you will achieve your goals. Resistance and defensiveness are habits you do not want to indulge. Allow external challenges to develop your inner, unshakeable strength. As much as possible, adhere to proven business practices, such as contracts and other protective measures to secure assets and resources. Although you may have your sights set on something specific, circumstantial realities may prevent you from achieving in some areas. If this is the case, cut your losses and move on to the next project.

George W.'s Moon Sextile Richard B.'s Mars (easier aspect):

        Core Themes: If this is the most exact aspect between your charts, your main relationship theme is emotional excitement, stimulation and high energy. This aspect also refers to the expression of your feelings and how you deal with anger and conflict.

        Easier aspects: Your relationship is emotionally stimulating and exciting, and with these combined energies, you can accomplish much in a short time. You are probably direct with each other. In fact, you have the kind of relationship that can handle banter, sparring and debate. There are times when you deliberately want to get a rise out of your partner and this can engender laughter, but sometimes comments can become too pointed or personal. Most of these times, it's all in good fun, and when it's not, you'll find your partner and others will lodge their protest quickly and directly. There isn't much you'll get away with in this relationship and, in this sense, the partnership will keep you both on your toes and accountable. Your partnership energy will generate much enthusiasm with clients, colleagues and associates. Your aim to be first with the innovative idea will arouse some stiff competition. You enjoy being at the top of your game.

        Challenging aspects: Because of your high energy, attempting too much or going too fast are issues you'll have to deal with. Quickness to react, although useful in its place, can also mean unwarranted aggressiveness at other times. Managing your anger, irritation or impatience towards each other will be among the most challenging themes in your relationship. You are both quite aware of each other energetically. This stimulating energy between you is after all, what attracted you to partner up in the first place. After a time, you will know exactly which buttons to push, meaning that you can easily irritate your partner, sometimes deliberately. Don't go there, if you value this partnership. Revenge and antagonism will increase anger and forge a wider rift between you. When you disagree on points or how to handle a project, instead of seeing red, allow for some cooling down time. Later, honestly discuss the issues, each speaking in turn while the other listens. Being responsible for separate parts of the project will give each of you the full control you want over your portion.
