I base this article on a relationship I have with one person. I have known this person for many years. He does a service for me and we maintained a relationship and became friends, but we would not have been friends without our working relationship and if that ended, I doubt we would stay friends. However, this relationship is interesting because it has lasted for many years and I see many astrological aspects and how they function.
My Nessus is an exact conjunction to his Sun. His Nessus is conjunct my Sun/Moon midpoint. I never trust this person, even though he has done many things that could merit my trust. He has done some things that would take away my trust though. He has a Pisces Moon. I do not think the Pisces Moon can be loyal when faced with adversity. Yes, I tell it as I see it. Don’t read my articles if you want platitudes and fluff.
In this relationship, I don’t think I will ever be able to really “like” this person. He has given me many reasons to like him. For the most part, he has done excellent work for me and has been a good friend. However, I don’t really like him or trust him. I have a wall up against him and I, always, have. I attribute this to my Nessus conjunct his Sun.
It is an interesting aside that I have needed to be very strong with him, at times. He would have taken advantage of me if I had not reared up my head in strength. I, also, have Bellona, the goddess of war, conjunct my Mars, thank goodness. However, the main point of this article is that the chart will really be at the root of any relationship. In a Nessus/Sun relationship, the Nessus person will never really like or trust the Sun person.
