Relationship Astrology: Sun/Moon Midpoint in Synastry

Sun-Moon PhotoSun/Moon Midpoint in Synastry: Inner Unification through Relationship

Sun/Moon midpoint is a very sensitive point in relationships.  In natal chart analysis, when we have a focal point (i.e. a planet or an Angle) in hard aspect with the Sun/Moon midpoint, the planet or the Angle often becomes the catalyst for our deepest need fulfillment & creative self expression.

In synastry, when another person’s (e.g. spouse, business partner, teacher, client, boss etc) focal point makes a hard aspect with our Sun/Moon midpoint, it has a similar impact on us, almost as if we can use the energy from our partner’s chart to experience the sense of deep unification and effective self expression.

In this sense, the synastry aspects involving the Sun/Moon midpoint becomes important in professional and personal relationships – in both cases, we can express and fulfill our innermost needs through the help of another person more than if we just tried to do so on our own. 

How Do I Find My Sun/Moon Midpoint?

You’ll need to know the exact degree of your Sun and the Moon to arrive at the correct Sun/Moon midpoint (literally, a halfway point between the Sun and the Moon).  It would be useful to know your partner’s Sun/Moon midpoint as well, to see if your focal points make a hard aspect to it.

This post tells you how to obtain a list of your natal midpoints for free.

Sun/Moon Midpoint Synastry Interpretation

Note that the equal sign (‘=’) denotes conjunction, square or opposition.

  • Their Mercury = Your Sun/Moon Midpoint: Their attitude, ideas and communication help you to express yourself more fully, and find your own voice.
  • Their Venus = Your Sun/Moon Midpoint: Their love, affection and/or friendship help you to love and accept yourself and others better, and be more effective in social settings.
  • Their Mars = Your Sun/Moon Midpoint: Their action, motivation and self assertion help you to become more proactive and assertive in general.
  • Their Jupiter = Your Sun/Moon Midpoint: Their optimism, generosity and enthusiasm help you to become more positive and optimistic about life.
  • Their Saturn = Your Sun/Moon Midpoint: Their wisdom, integrity and discipline may help you become wiser and more mature.  On the other hand, their fears and challenges may lead to frustration as well as personal growth.  Like any Saturn aspect, this one tends to get better with time if you can persevere during rough periods.
  • Their Uranus = Your Sun/Moon Midpoint: You may feel stimulated and a little impulsive through this synastry contact.  Uranus person’s individuality may help you realize your own uniqueness & the need for independence from others’ opinions.  On the other hand, their aloofness may make you feel alienated.
  • Their Neptune = Your Sun/Moon Midpoint: Their spirituality, creativity and idealism may help you to reconnect with your own dreams, faith and imagination.  On the other hand, their addictive or escapist behaviors may make you feel deceived or abandoned.
  • Their Pluto = Your Sun/Moon Midpoint: Their intensity and emotional honesty may help you access a deeper part of yourself, leading to profound healing or transformation.  On the other hand, their desire for power and control may lead to a struggle for dominance in the relationship, with strong undercurrent of unspoken emotions.
  • Their Ascendant = Your Sun/Moon Midpoint: Their personal expression and authenticity may help you to be more secure in your own identity and self expression.
  • Their Midheaven = Your Sun/Moon Midpoint: Their career and public status may somehow help you to succeed in your own work.
  • Their Nodal Axis (North or South Node) = Your Sun/Moon Midpoint: This could be a very meaningful relationship with a sense of karmic connection.  They may help you to connect with a larger group of people.

What about Their Sun or Moon = Your Sun/Moon Midpoint?

While Sun=Sun/Moon or Moon=Sun/Moon is generally not considered in regular midpoint analysis, in synastry this can be an important contact.  In both cases, another person’s core energy is making a strong contact with your point of relationship fulfillment and self expression.  This synastry contact can suggest a highly fulfilling and supportive relationship, regardless of whether it’s a marriage/love relationship, business partnership, or a teacher/student relationship.

UPDATE: What if Their Sun/Moon midpoint  = Your Sun/Moon midpoint?

This means both of your Sun/Moon midpoints will be triggered at the same time via transits.  If you’re in a relationship, it means major transits from Saturn or outer planets will be felt deeply by both of you in the same time period, possibly amplifying the potential of each transit – things could get quite emotional (very blissful or very painful, etc).

  1. Hello. I am wondering what it means if there are no significant conjunctions between personal planets and sun/moon midpoint in the synastry of my partner and I.
    I have synastry with other people, and so does he, with strong conjunctions to those sensitive, almost fated i guess points but other than the nodes ours has none. Although those other connections have definitely been intense and life changing for us, as well as our own relationship, our synastry doesn’t indicate so. I always felt like this person is my life partner and it has always been the most important relationship in my life and still is but looking at our synastry and some of those with other people made me sadly think if I am in the wrong about something. Do those sensitive points or angles have to be touched by another persons planet, or does a synastry chart without many “meant to be” indicators mean that we are not right for each other?

  2. I’ve recently started trying to interact with a girl at my place of work, I managed to tease her birth date from her and found out some rather promising aspects.

    Apart from the strong opposition between her moon and my sun and her venus and my sun, not to mention a strong conjunction between her sun and my mars.

    The one thing that stood out to me is that MY moon is in her 7th house making a direct conjunction to her sun/moon midpoint, and also my moon is conjunct her mean south node.

    Since you didn’t include luminaries in your reading for sun/moon contacts in synastry I decided I wanted to bring this up with you. I wanna know how significant something like that is and if I should try coming on stronger or play it slower?

  3. Question about composites… My Sun Moon midpoint is 23° Aries. My Astrologers Sun Moon midpoint is 1° Sagittarius. In our composite chart. The moon is at 1° Sag and Sun at 23° Aries. Is this a valid use of midpoints? She asked me to help moderate her Facebook group of 30,000+ before this was known and is a very good friend on the opposite side of the world from myself.

  4. Are the soft aspects from one person (personal) planets to other person Sun-Moon midpoint not strong enough to be mentioned?
    For example: Sun trine Sun-Moon midpoint? (exact aspect)

    • Hello Lina, soft aspects in synastry can be a comfortable source of support. In practice, I see their impact as weaker compared to conjunction or other hard aspects (which tend to speak with a lot more volume).

  5. Jennifer says

    Hi Hniizato
    His Jupiter = my Sun/Moon midpoint. Does this affect the planet person too in the same way?

    • Hi Jennifer, a purely technical interpretation suggests the influence will be from his Jupiter to your Sun/Moon midpoint. In practice, this may depend on the difference in the level of “Jupiter energy” each of you have (think: enthusiasm, positivity and support). If you are naturally more positive and cheerful compared to him, then what might happen is that you might end up activating his Jupiter, and help nurture/grow its expression. This kind of reversal sometimes happens in long term relationships.

  6. Wow, add this to the list: I keep trying to find synastry reasons for a lifelong fascination for a schoolmate/acquaintance but every time the new significant aspect suggests why she should be fascinated by ME: no help.

    Her Midpoint is PRECISELY conjunct my ASC. Our nodal axes are conjunct MY MC/IC axis, therefore my North & South Nodes are square her Midpoint (and our nodes are square my ASC).

    Her Moon and our Black Moon Liliths both sit on my South Node so my Lilith is square her Midpoint, whatever that might mean.

    My Vertex is opposite her Midpoint.

    …This is all brand-new to me! I only just discovered Midpoints today. I have a lot to try to process, now.

  7. His Sun/Moon mp is on my Asc in Aqu. My Sun/Moon mp is on his Plu (ruler of Scor). Strange thing is I’m the natal Scor but seem to be more Aqu than he is in the relationship. He’s the Aqu but acts like Scor more than I do!

  8. Hi! That’s such a helpful article about important details meant to refine our understanding.
    But i still have some questions:
    1. What may happen if in a synastry my midpoint Sun/Moon is in almost perfect oposition to his midpoint Sun/Moon?
    29:25 Scorpio – 28:53 Taurus
    2. He has Lilith conjunct to his midpoint Sun/Moon in Taurus. Therefore his Lilith is in opposition to my Sun/Moon midpoint. Could that have any possible meaning or is already way too subtle to be felt or to make any of us aware of it?

    • Hi Irina, Sun/Moon midpoints contacting each other will mean that both of you will experience a major transit at the same time. So pay attention when a powerful transit (0, 90, 180 degrees) excites both of your Sun/Moon midpoints and see how both of you experience and evolve in the relationship. I haven’t done much work with Lilith, so cannot comment on how it might impact synastry.

  9. Rositsa Petkova says

    Hello Hiroki ,
    I have few questions about midpoints in synastry:
    1. What would it be/feel if Venus/Mars midpoint (A) = Chiron (B)? Is it like healing through sexual experiences, intimacy?
    2. What is the likely considerable (felt by people) orb for midpoints (A) to other person’s focal points (B)?
    3. Very interesting matter: do we only consider the midpoint calculated on the shorter chart arc between the two midpoint points or always look at the longer chart arc as well? For example: my Sun/Moon mdpnt = 4.31 Pisces. Do I also look at the opposite mdpnt = 4.31 Virgo? And if partner has natal point at 4.31 Virgo do I also consider it substantial?

    Thanks a lot!
    BR, Rositsa.

    • Hello Rositsa, 1) Chiron in synastry might indeed offer opportunities for healing through relationships – it may suggest the potential for recognizing where you’re wounded. 2) I would keep the orbs small for midpoints, usually 1.5 degree and not over 2 degrees. 3) Because midpoint connection is assessed in terms of the 4th harmonic (0, 90, 180 degrees), both the shorter and the longer arc midpoints will be activated.

  10. How about their Chiron = Your Sun/Moon midpoint ?

  11. Donny Lim says

    Thanks for this article. Have someone’s Neptune-ASC-Mercury in tight opposition to my natal direct Sun/Moon midpoint in early ♊. It’s a mixed bag of energies to digest. Am thinking of letting it go altogether as Neptune also holds secrets and can be deceptive.

  12. This is a great article- thank you! I have partners sun/moon contact to my moon and also Uranus. And my midpoint contacting his Jupiter. My midpoint also contacts his IC. Is that significant too? Thanks!

    • Hello, yes, Moon-Uranus contact to his Sun/Moon seems significant. So is the Sun/Moon midpoint contact to his MC-IC axis.

    • Someone I’ve just met has moon, sun, north node and mars on my midpoint and my ascendant. He also has exact vertex conjunct my Pluto. There is an unbelievable chemistry and pull to be together. Do you have any insight for me on these aspects.

  13. Hello Hiroki,
    Although were not really in a relationship a dear friend of mine and I share an aspect where her Moon is exactly conjunct my Sun/Moon m.p. . Also, we have a rare aspect of a mutual Vertex conjunct the others ASC. Her Venus Mars conjunction is in my 7th near the DC and my Venus Jupiter conjunction is on her MC. Its an extraordinary compelling intimate friendship that is unlike any other I’ve experienced. It’s like we really SEE each other.

  14. Hello,
    I was wondering, my moon is conjunct his Sun/Moon midpoint by 1.6 degree Orb, and my venus is sesquiquadrate by exact degree (0.02) is that significant?
    My moon is also conjunct his Asc/Dsc Midpoint by 0.25 degree orb, do you think it means anything?

    • Hi Emma, Moon conjunct his sun/moon midpoint can be significant. Also, what you mean is that your Moon squares his Ascendant-Descendant axis. Sesquiquadrate can count as a strong contact too, but I would imagine there are other, more obvious interaspects that would make the same statement, if it’s a significant relationship. For a full analysis, please consider scheduling a private consultation.

  15. Hi Hiroki
    Our Vertex conjunct each other’s Sun/Moon midpoint. Does it mean anything?

  16. Hi Hiroki,
    My moon is in 29 Scorpio, my boyfriend’s sun/moon is exactly 29 Scorpio. Does that mean his sun/moon will be aspecting the same planets as my moon ? My moon squares my sun, mercury, venus, jupiter. What significances does this imply? Thanls !

    • Hi Regina, yes you’re correct – the orb of an aspect to a Sun/Moon midpoint should be very tight (no more than 2 degrees), so that may narrow down the actual contacts of your planets to his sun/moon midpoint.

  17. Hi there, am wondering about the important of ASC/MC midpoint in synastry. Recently met someone who already has nodes conjunct my ASC which seems fated. That someone also has Jupiter in exact conjunction to my direct ASC/MC midpoint. Since Jupiter is the ruler of the Sun and stellium in Sagittarius, Jupiter here plays a large role here.
    Am wondering what Jupiter = my ASC/MC midpoint implies ….

    • Hi Donny, ASC/MC midpoint is important, as a point of fusing your identity and work, or your relationship and public status. I would consider this to be a positive connection you have with this person.

  18. Hi Hiroki!
    My on/off love interest has his Sun/Moon midpoint = my ASC/Pluto & Sun & my Saturn & nodes also square it. In our composite chart, the Sun/Moon midpoint = his natal Sun & Jupiter.
    We both also each have the unusual natal configuration of Mercury/Uranus conj our individual Sun/Moon midpoints & our Uranus are conjunct each other’s Sun’s!! I feel like he’s the only one I’ve ever met who’s just like me.

    My question: Do you think midpoint configurations are as strong as individual planetary conjunctions?
    If my ASC,Sun & Pluto are conjunct his SO/MO MP is it the same strength/influence as having Sun conjunct Pluto/Sun/ASC and Moon conjunct Pluto/Sun/ASC? His Moon is already 6 degrees away from my ASC.

    • Hi there, you can certainly consider these and any other measurements, but I would keep it simple and stick to a planet or an angle when looking at synastry (otherwise you’ll end up with more measurements that you can know what to do with).

      Sun/Moon midpoint is a powerful exception, and I do look at its synastry.

  19. what if my sun/moon midpoint is at someone’s north node? and despite a break up and arguments after years we still meet each other very often and he becomes more and more polite to me?

    • I think Node = Sun/Moon midpoint is a significant connection. It doesn’t automatically imply you should get back together – that’s more in the realm of free will.

  20. What do you make of this? His MOON conjunct my SU/MO MIDPOINT, and my MOON conjunct his SU/MO MIDPOINT, both almost exact or very tight orbs.

  21. What about Juno conjunct midpoint?

  22. I have sun in 10 degrees taurus and moon 20 degrees gemini. When I used the methods of for finding the midpoint, I end up with gemini 20 degrees!

    So my midpoint is where my moon already is? Is it possible or did I do something wrong?

  23. An ex of mine had his Sun/Moon midpoint almost exactly opposite my Sun and I had my Sun/Moon midpoint in EXACT opposition to his Sun. I felt like we were soulmates/twinflames and still do.

  24. I’m having a relationship that continues to form, quite pleasantly, over the past two years. Without going into too much detail it’s an artistic supportive relationship with a large age difference. The thing is I feel I’m getting caught up in something that is quite unusual, good but surprising and in some respects affectionate…I don’t know what more to say at this point. Astrology wise: I’ve notice we have that rare Mutual ASC conjunct Vertex and in addition her Moon is tightly conjunct my Sun/Moon midpoint. I’m transfixed, lol.
    I’d appreciate your thoughts to these aspects when you have a moment, thank you!

  25. What about her sun-moon midpoint conjunct mine within 3 degrees in virgo(mine 19 and her about 21 degree).What can you tell me about our connection. I know is sound unrealistic in the physical plane but could this conjunction describe a twin flame union or at least 2 people coming from the same soul family?

  26. Hi Hiroki, I might be splitting hairs with this question, but I want to ask you are personal (inner) planets that make hard aspects to midpoints more significant than impersonal (outer) planets?

    I’m asking this because I’ve noticed that the partner of a friend of mine has a uranus contact to her venus/mars midpoint alongside his mars contact to her venus/mars midpoint. While I realize this points to potential for at least attraction on her part to the other individual I was hoping if you could clear this up because it has raised this conundrum with me when comparing inner and outer planets on midpoints in synastry relations.

    • Hi Fingal, in general slower planets have stronger impact. In matters of relationship and synastry, inner planet connection suggests a style of personality interaction, but outer planet connection is where the work is at.

  27. Hi Hiroki,
    His moon is tightly conjunct to my sun. My sun and moon are quite close to each other. His moon is practicly in the centre of my sun- moon midpoint. But all of this happens in his 12th house… I wonder i hé feels this. Or is it Just one side?
    Thank you! Best Regards, Lotta

  28. I have found your posts, interpretations/readings very interesting! I discovered today my love interest’s moon is in hard aspect to my sun/moon midpoint, and my asc, moon, mercury, jupiter & pluto are all in hard aspect to his sun/moon midpoint. The relationship is very easy when we are together but a little stormy &emotional when we are apart(due to distance and circumstances) … Is that common for a mutual placement like this?

  29. Thanks so much!
    BOTH him and I each have our natal sun/moon = venus.

    And then my sun/moon (= venus) in his SN,

    and his sun/moon (= venus) in my Asc.

    What does this mean?

    • Typically Venus synastry connections like that are highly magnetic and heartfelt. Nodal contact may even suggest a sense of being connected from the past life.

      How do you experience the relationship?

  30. hi hiroki
    Am the male in the relationship with the sun and moon in leo my question wasn,t to understand the longetivity or significance it was just to clear any aspect does it make to the mid point on both the sides ..Thank you so much for your feedback am learning astrology and have come quite a distance now understanding how the planets and bodies effect us and add upto the growth of our souls..

  31. Hi hiroki

    His sun is 21 degree leo and moon is 20 degree leo her sun is 14 degrees aries and moon is 17 degress taurus his sun/moon midpint is 21 degree leo as well..

    • also forgot to mention her sun /moon midpoint is in taurus 1 degree..

    • Hi Mushtaq, so he has a new moon birth chart. Your (her? not sure which partner you are in this) Sun and Moon form a close aspect to his Sun Moon conjunction which is certainly important, but in this case his Sun/Moon midpoint wouldn’t be part of the synastry, as the orbs are too wide.

  32. and to also sum it up am trying to understand that ..synastrically these are basic things going into it ..
    His sun leo
    moon leo
    her sun aries
    moon taurus

    now the sun trines the sun and moon squares the sun in synastry so the the sun/moon midpoint for him is in leo for her is in taurus so i think it may be giving the same effects to midpoint as well as giving it in the synatry itself whats ur take correct me if am wrong ..

    • Sun/Moon midpoint is a precise point at the mid-distance from Sun and Moon, so you’d want to get the actual degree of this point, and then see if the other person’s planets will make an aspect to that point within a 2 degree orb.

  33. hi hiroki

    If the sun /moon midpoint is in taurus and if the other person sun and moon are in leo does that mean the sun /moon midpoint in taurus is squaring the sun and moon of the other person and what significance does that make to a relationship..

  34. With sun – sun/moon midpoint in hard aspect in synastry, is the feeling mutual?

  35. So happy I found this article, thank you for sharing.
    My boyfriend has his sun-moon midpoint (13 degrees 6) exactly conjunct my natal vertex (13 degrees 22) in Leo. How does this affect us. Does this benefit him or me more. How does this influence how he feels about me and us. Thank you !!!

    • Hi Claire, I personally don’t use vertex so cannot comment on it with much conviction, but if you believe it as important as some astrologers do, then you could consider it as one more point of important connection between your horoscopes…The main word is connection, not so much how you feel about each other from one year to the next (which will naturally evolve and change over time.)

  36. Empriestess says

    Thank you for your response. Merry Christmas. I just found this write up about the asteroid inner child and been exploring asteroids lately and if they touch any of the planets or important points in charts to get a sense of the potential available in connections.

    Child (4580)—-I love the Child asteroid. I love Moon trine Moon. I love Moon conjunct Moon. If anyone asks me if they have a soul mate chart, I will go right to the moons. I will decide from the moons, only, in many cases. That is how much the Moons mean to me. I think one’s Moon is one’s soul. A soul to soul connection is what soul mates are all about.

    The Child Asteroid is our inner child. When it touches a personal part of another person’s chart, one may feel as if he can act like a child again. Love is child to child. Hence, if you had to substitute an asteroid for a planet, I would substitute the Child asteroid for the Moon. Look and see what your Child asteroid touches in the chart of your beloved. Once you know how it feels, you will be able to pick this up with other people, whether they be lovers of friends.

    Inner Child in Houses is great too.

  37. Hi Hiroki,

    I have two charts (synastry) which both have the Sun/Moon midpoint conjunct each others MARS within 4 degrees.

    His MARS conjuncts his inner child and Pluto.
    My S/M midpoint conjuncts my Vertex, Uranus and Pluto in the 7th house.

    The composite chart has Sun/Moon Midpoint at 20 Virgo conjunct MARS/DNA 18 Virgo. There was a solar eclipse to this point at 20 Virgo September 13, 2015 and this is when we met in person.

    Any thoughts to these connections?

    • Wait, there is a planet for inner child?

      The mutual Mars synastry connection (although 4 degree is a bit wide) suggests Martian themes within your relationship – shared action, anger and/or sexuality. I can’t comment on composite aspects since I don’t use them in my practice.

  38. Hello Hiroki,
    how would you interpret someones’s Sun/Moon midpoint falling exactly in between my AC (Virgo) and South Node (on their midpoint so to say, they are 3 degrees apart from each other). His Moon (Virgo) is also in my 1st house.
    Additionally that person’s North Node (that is conjunct his Mars) is exactly conjunct my Vertex, Pallas & my Sun/Mercury midpoint.
    I have very confused “karmic” feelings about him, like I know him from “before” and a notion, that I might have “failed” him in the past and have to help him this time, finding his way. If this is making any sense to you ;-) Thanks.

    • Hello Nadja,

      Someone’s Sun/Moon midpoint falling on your ASC/Node midpoint wouldn’t be as significant without a planet to trigger those midpoints. The karmic connection you feel is probably coming from the rest of your horoscopes’ synastry ties. I plan to write more on synastry soon, but you may enjoy reading the few articles that are already on the archive section.

  39. I have my sun contra antiscon my boyfriends s/m midpoint does that count? Thanks

  40. What about their sun/moon midpoint exactly opposite your sun/moon midpoint?

    • Hello Summer,

      This could be an important synastry tie, especially if supported by other synastric contacts. The important thing in the case of your Sun/Moon midpoint opposing someone else’s is that both of you will experience major transits to natal Sun/Moon midpoint at the same time, in effect sharing the rhythm of relationship development.

  41. Thank you for this. with my soulmate, his moon touches my sun/moon midpoint. my moon and my venus touch his sun/moon midpoint. we also have sun conjunct moon, moon conjunction venus, sun conjunct ascendant, mercury conjunct ascendant and venus trine venus. I feel completely blessed, unified and complete in his company :)

  42. Hello Hiroki,
    I have my midpoint SU/MO in conjunction with his ASC, and also I have mi ASC in conjunction with his SU/MO.
    We are both Leo… I am Scorpio ASC… and he is a Gemini ASC.
    Have had more that 4 years in a constant discovery about ourselves…very tough… very painful… but still feel we can work things out. The feeling of family between us is very strong… but I can’t help being so critic about him.

    Also, I see mi SU/MO midpoint is between his Mars and Asc, both in conjunction.
    Then… my moon and saturn is opposite to his midpoint SU/MO.

    • I am sorry I didn’t make any questions… but I think it is obvious… hahahaha, how do you see these contacts? Also… one more thing… Galactic Center is conjunct to his ASC… is this significant??? Gal. Center (at my birth) is also opposite to my midpoint SU/MO.
      I am always curious about such aspects… even I know about basic astrology… had never considered before Gal Center… nor midpoints as much as today.
      Thank you!!!

    • Sounds like you both have much to contribute to each other’s growth! It’s a good thing..

  43. Mercury in libra connotes a diplomat in communication. :). I’ve been reading your comments and noticed your answers to difficult questions. I’m wondering if there are other important midpoints to consider as well? Eg sun/venus or mars, you’ve mentioned sun/mercury earlier in the blog. Anything regarding the north node?


    • I think those midpoints are OK to consider in synastry, but probably the impact will be weaker – Sun/Moon midpoint is a special case because of it’s heightened importance.

  44. Hi Hiroki,
    Great site! I have a Mercury (25)/Uranus (22) conjunction on my Sun/Moon midpoint at 24 Libra. It’s a strong degree for me (I also have Arabic Part of Fascination at 25 Libra.)

    I often seem to attract folks with ASC around 25 Libra. (Including my mother!) I’m guessing from their end it’s b/c it puts a lot of my personal planets in their 1st, 4th, 5th & 7th/8th houses. Sometimes I get the Sun or Moon in late Libra too. Not sure of the rest of the planets. And yes, come to mention it, another boyfriend had his nodal access along those lines.
    Do you know what it means for me personally to have those planets activating?

    Although these days, relationships are so varied and evolved I think there are unlimited ways folks live and connect, I have heard that folks’ SO/MO midpoints will often conjunct, square, oppose or quincunx each other & that does seem to ring true. How it plays out probably has to do with the rest of the chart and other sensitive points.

  45. Novemberlady says

    Would you be able to go into a bit more detail about Sun= Sun/Moon Midpoint and Moon= Sun/Moon Midpoint?

    • Sun/Moon midpoint in another person’s horoscope is an important point for his/her inner fulfillment, both in terms of self expression and relationships. Your Sun or Moon illuminating such sensitive point suggests potentials for important connection to be made. The rest really is up to the rest of the horoscopes and how each of you is utilizing it.

  46. (And to highlight some of our difficult aspects, pretty much every other planet for me is in Aquarius, or on the Capricorn/Aquarius cusp, or in Leo… and his Mars and Moon are in Scorpio, therefore squares his Moon and Mars. I have nothing that connects with his Midpoint it seems. So everything about me pretty much feels opposing and difficult for him (or anyone else I’d meet with contact on my Sun/Moon Midpoint?). Too sad. I guess my S/M Midpt therefore squares all my plantes in my own chart. Argh.

  47. My recent ex who I don’t want to let go of at all, regardless of he troubles in our amazing yet difficult relationship, has his Moon exactly conjunct my Neptune (4th house) in Scorpio, which is also exactly conjunct my Sun/Moon Midpoint. No wonder I feel like, even with the other thwarting aspects we have amidst all the positive and incredibly good ones, that I can’t let go and will lose so very much and be flat and blah without him in my life closely. This all makes sense.

  48. Very interesting….

    Do you have any idea what Sun/Moon = Juno on a natal chart can mean? I have this and cannot find a definition.

    Many thanks!

  49. Great article! I have my Mercury conjunct my partner’s Sun/Moon midpoint. She lacks air in her chart and I have so much air in mine, you can imagine how great this is for her!

    What about Sun/Ascendant midpoint? I have my own Sun conjunct this midpoint in my partner by 0º 20′. Along with my Venus by 3º. Any ideas? It actually forms 2 semi-squares (sun – sun & asc – sun).


    • Sun/Ascendant midpoint represents the potential for “being yourself in relationships,” so any planet of yours that connects to her midpoint there would hopefully encourage her to be fully who she is.

      • Wow that makes a lot of sense. Thanks! And I just discovered that my Sun/Asc midpoint equals my Moon… and my Moon conjuncts her Mars and Venus…. in Leo… in the 5th house…. <3 <3 <3 Crazy!!!

        I love astrology.

        And you for this article!


  50. Hii Hiroki
    my SU/MO midpoint is 15.30 virgo in my 12 th house, (no aspects to my planets, only an opposition to my vertex at 20 pisces)
    and the man I am interested in has SU/MO midpoint 11.30 virgo in his 10th.

    What does it mean having the same midpoint with him??

    Do these midpoints count as a conjuction?

    We are not in a romantic relationship but it seems to be going there.

    What does it mean having the same midpoint??

    I’m trying to learn about midpoints and read that semisquares, squares etc from one person’s personal planets to the other’s SU?MO midpoint are very important.
    I noticed that my SU/Mo midpoint 15.30 virgo semisquares His Moon at 29.50 gemini.

    Also His SU/MO midpoint 11.40 virgo semisquares my MC at 26.30 gemini

    Are these considered strong affinities?
    Are they of any importance?
    Thank you in advance :)

    • see above response…If you want to go looking for minor aspects you can, but a significant synastry contact is usually much stronger than that, and it does not have to involve the Sun/Moon midpoint.

  51. Hii Hiroki
    my SU/MO midpoint is 15.30 virgo in my 12 th house, (no aspects to my planets, only an opposition to my vertex at 20 pisces)

  52. my partner midpoint is exact conjunct my own he is 22.23 sag i am 22.22 sag ! we both conjunct my venus , north node , ceres , juno !!! his juno 10.13 scorp exact conjuncts my sun 10.12 scorp . the great thing about us is we are very best friends we find the mercury square wonderful . our venus and mars are square both ways , we wouldnt have it any other way , we learn and we are better ppl for being together , we have been together 23 yrs :)

    • Good for you! Thank you for sharing your experience :)

      • Oh please help! This sounds so interesting!! I have both peoples midpoints and natals. I have no clue how to compare them. Is it person a natal to person b midpoints? So i look for matching signs or positions? For example it says my midpoint is 23 vir 19″19 … Do i look for virgo in the natal or the number 23?? Or 19″ 19″ thank you so much if you can advise i have wanted to lean and cannot find ONE Single help on line to find the connections.

        • Hi Lay, if you’re new to midpoints, I recommend that you start with the midpoint article. You’re correct, in this article we’re considering person A’s natal planet to person B’s Sun/Moon midpoint (hard aspect only). Without a good foundation of understanding in midpoints, it’s a bit too soon for you to jump into this topic.

  53. If someone have Sun/Moon Midpoint conjunct descendent should he or she need relationship in order to be happy.

    I know someone with this but she likes to be alone.

  54. Hi
    What about this?

    Not only Sun also Moon and Descendant are in conjunction to another person’s Sun/Moon midpoint (Sun and Moon less than one degree).

    And another person’s Sun conjunct person’s Sun/Moon midpoint.

    • I think that could be significant. Both people’s Sun/Moon midpoint will be impacted by the same transit, so it could be clear cut when the relationships will experience major tension.

  55. I had a ‘sort of” relationship with someone very brief but very intensely. Our synastry comparison was generally brilliant with the notable exception of a pluto square my moon (I am Cancer rising). The thing that I think was really confusing, though, and I have since often wondered if it was relevant and whether it could have been handled differently was that although my moon was square his sun/moon midpoint, his pl;uto was almost exactly conjunct his sun/moon midpoint too. His sexuality was – to say the least – confused. He considered himself a lesbian/bisexual woman in a man’s body (and I’m not sure it was that simple!). He had difficulty with my sexuality since I am a pretty well straight down the line straight woman – although my connection with him was the closest I have ever felt to having lesbian tendencies, and on all levels I found myself reacting to him as both male and female.. Do you think that his very complicated and often confused sexuality has anything to do with pluto being conjunct the sun/moon midpoint, which I understand is meant to be the balance point between your male and female selves? Could you comment on people who have a planet closely conjunct the sun/moon midpoint in the natal horoscope? I also know someone who has Uranus conjunct their sun/moon.

    • Sexuality (including sexual orientation) is best analyzed through looking at 5th and 8th house and their rulers. You’ll probably find interesting things there. Planets in contact with the Sun/Moon midpoint do not represent sexual concerns by themselves.

  56. Hi,

    What does mean that one person’s sun/moon midpoint conjuncts other person’s sun and vice-versa? besides the suns, they have other planets in conjunction to their sun/moon midpoints. One of them is Saturn….is it more powerful Saturn’s energy than the Suns energy? These 2 people loved each other but remained a very short time together.

    Person 1:
    Sun/Moon Midpoint: 02’03 SAG
    Sun: 03’16 AQU
    Moon: 00’51 LIB
    Mercury: 29’38 CAP
    Mars: 16’15 SAG

    Person 2:
    Sun/Moon Midpoint: 00’30 AQU
    Sun: 04’28 SAG
    Moon: 26’33 PIS
    Neptune: 02’52 SAG
    Saturn: 02’54 SAG


    • I recommend that you use a tighter orb for midpoints in general – about 1.5 degrees. No more than 2.00 degrees. If you do that, you’ll get a much clearer picture that Neptune-Saturn in Person 2 is conjoined with the Sun/Moon midpoint of person, which isn’t going to be easy (granted this is a extremely simplified picture…)

  57. My Sun\Moon midpoint is at 18 degree Sag. in conjunction with my vertex and Amor and at descendant of my friend, …in opposition with his jupiter and north node, square his Pluto and uranus in Virgo and also square his Saturn conjunct Chiron and Eros in Pisces ( Juno)…
    His Midpoint Sun \ Moon is also at my descandant at 3 degree Aquarius in conjunction with my Jupiter and his Lilith…and square my Venus conjunct mercurius and his Vertex in shorpio…His Moon conjunction Sun is at my Ascendant 3 degree Leo! His Amor is in taurus…

  58. I am so confused. what does it mean when it says: “parallel aspects between natal planets orb 0°40 / 0°20 (Midpoints)” and it refers to midpoints? for example: mars // moon/jupiter

    this is shown at for keller midpoints section at the very bottom of the midpoint chart.


    • Parallel refers to declination (similar to latitude), whereas all of the midpoint discussion in this article refers to right ascension (similar to longitude.) All planetary positions you see in the horoscope (25 Aries, etc) refers to right ascension. I recommend you keep it simple and not worry about the midpoints calculated off the declination.

  59. Sorry to bother you again. What about the conjunction of the Sun/Moon Midpoints between 2 people?

    Thank you.

    • I think you’d need a planet or an Angle to activate the midpoint contact (which you do, since your Moon and Venus are involved) What’s interesting here is that both of you will be experiencing a transiting aspect to your Sun/Moon midpoint at the same time. So things could feel very good or very bad depending on the quality of the transit to your Sun/Moon midpoint (an amplified response, like two people playing in unison.)

  60. I’m surprised you didn’t include either “Their Sun = Your Sun/Moon Midpoint” or “Their Moon = Your Sun/Moon Midpoint” in your synastry examples. Can you say anything specific about either of them like you did the other planets?

    • Read above comment please.

      • My Sun?Moon Midpoint is conjunct my partner’s Sun/Moon Midpoint in the sign of Taurus (my 1st house and his 2nd house). Would you please explain what this means? Additionally, my Moon and Venus in Taurus are conjunct his Sun/Moon Midpoint in Taurus in my 1st house.

        Thank you so much for your time.

        • Let me just add the answer to the post as an update, as this question keeps coming up despite being answered in the previous comment.

          • Brilliand says

            You don’t seem to have answered it for the midpoints conjunct… just for individual planets in aspect to the midpoint. I guess the main question is… does those midpoints being in the same spot mean anything?

          • Hi Brilliand, let me add it as an update to the post, as this question has come up before.

  61. what about their sun?

    • As a rule, the midpoint measurement A=B/C would not make sense if A is equal to B or C, so it’s not interpreted in Solar Arc or transit. In the case of synastry contact, we might be able to make an exception…With that said, I feel that Sun or Moon in strong aspect to another person’s Sun/Moon midpoint could generate quite a good feeling between the two people.
