I know you’re busy, but just thought I’d ask you this random puzzling question…
What’s the deal with a romantic interest with someone who has the same birthday as oneself? Recently bumped into someone on a plane who is April 17 Aries like me (but a few years older)… There were a few sparks and it feels vibey.
Thing is I’ve been in a relationship before with someone else with same April 17 birthday. He was 4 years younger and it was years ago in my 20’s and it ended up being the awful Saturn return kind of break up.
So back to Mr Aries-on-the-plane… any theories on fraternizing with same-birthday romantic prospects?
Welcome your thoughts?

So happy you are enjoying your subscription! Okay, this is an interesting question. Two couples offhand with same birthday – Christo & Jeanne Claude (you know the building wrappers) + Michael Douglas & Catherine Zeta-Jones. We explored their astrology and very PINK house here.
Personally, I have met a few women born the same day as me and really, really like them – instant rapport and familiarity but men born on the same day as me repel. One in particular almost gave me a nervous breakdown just from talking to him at a party for half an hour. He had some hideously annoying traits & I became convinced that they were, in fact, MY traits. He touched me on the arm to emphasize his stupid point and I shuddered. This may have been a bit extreme, I get that. You have to be v.careful how you do touchy-feeling with Aqua Rising peeps. Once I ducked someone coming in to try and hug me. I can also throw up a really good quick guard, from boxing
Now the thing is with same birthdays – it just means that your Sun and their Sun are conjunct – so you each stimulate each other’s solar powers, will to triumph, individuated self and self-expression. It’s nice synastry but hey we can do a LOT better than just Sun….the most intense interactions come when you’re looking at Sun on Mercury, Venus-Sun and it’s doubled – your Venus their Sun, their Sun, your Venus…Mars-Venus for ‘sexual napalm’ (see Sleazometer for a listing of the diff Mars-Venus combos), Pluto-Moon for when you really wanna go there… I could go on for hours with these things.
Sun-Sun synastry is but one aspect of a whole huge picture of different ways you can mesh (or not) with someone. There is also pure paleo chemistry – some people just smell good to you, remember – the olfactory nerve is in the nostrils and is the only nerve on the outside of the bod that goes straight to the reptilian brain.
So hey, with Mr. April 17 Aries on the plane – go there! You’ve both just completed Saturn transits so will be way suaver than you were previously…And you are both Aries so this should be quite swift and direct, yes? And don’t judge potential future flings or relationships based on some learning growth passage shit that went down during your Saturn Return!!!!
What does everyone else think?
