Romantic Compatibility Report

The Compatibility Report for
Birth Data for Katie: Katie Holmes December 18, 1978 9:32 PM Toledo, Ohio
Birth Data for Tom: Tom Cruise July 3, 1962 12:00 PM Syracuse, New York
This Lovers Report is divided into 4 chapters.
Chapter 1 compares your temperaments and personalities. The issues described in Chapter 1 become particularly powerful if you are married or live together. Idiosyncrasies or quirks in another person’s personality do not bother us as much if our relationship is a casual one. For example, if one person is neat and tidy and the other is sloppy, this is more likely to become a concern if you are married than if you are only seeing each other occasionally.
Pay close attention to the issues described in Chapter 2 because these are the most important themes in your relationship. For example, if themes of romance and sexual attraction are emphasized, then you can count on this relationship being a passionate one. However, if romance and sexuality are hardly mentioned at all, then this relationship will not be a passionate one.
Chapter 4 describes issues in your relationship of less importance than those presented in Chapter 2. Chapter 3 describes situations and circumstances that arise if you have a close, long-lasting relationship.
If a statement appears to contradict another statement, then your roles are likely to alternate. For example, a statement that Katie is more aggressive than Tom, and another statement that Tom is more aggressive than Katie, means that you alternate roles, with Katie sometimes being the leader and Tom being the follower, and sometimes just the opposite. Also, read the statements carefully, as it is likely that a careful reading will reveal different kinds of aggressiveness or areas in which the aggressiveness is likely to express itself.
To make the most of this report, combine this astrological analysis with other things that you know about each other. For example, we have assumed that you are opposite-sexed (assuming that both of you are heterosexual, otherwise same-sexed). Physical attractiveness, age, religion, education, family and cultural background will affect your relationship as well. The material in Chapters 2, 3, and 4 of this report describes the magnetism between you, but does not describe your individual natures. For example, suppose that Chapter 2 makes little mention of romance and sexuality, but the Natal Reports for each of you indicate that each of you has extremely strong romantic and sexual desires. In this case, marriage is not likely to be successful! However, if romance and sexuality are not important to either of you, then the lack of passion in your relationship is not likely to be as much of a stumbling block.

Chapter 1 A Comparison of Temperaments and Life Styles that Affect Your Ability to Harmonize with Each Other
Katie’s Sun in Sagittarius and Tom’s Sun in Cancer:
Your natures are so different that you are bound to clash at times. Very often when Katie feels the urge to travel, explore, expand, and follow a new star, Tom feels just the opposite: the urge to be close to family, to establish roots, to have children and provide for them, to be near close friends. Katie’s desire for freedom and exploration is often at cross purposes with Tom’s need for security.
Katie tends to also be philosophical and detached about personal matters while Tom takes a much more personal, subjective, compassionate, and emotional approach to life. Although in theory your differences can complement each other, and sometimes they do, there are times when you will have to be very creative and imaginative to find ways to meet everyone’s needs.
Katie’s Moon in Leo and Tom’s Moon in Leo:
Both of you love to be made to feel that you are very special and important, the favorite, the best! Proud and somewhat egotistical, you are sensitive to being ignored, slighted, or put in the background. You need personal recognition, appreciation, and respect very much, and you also want to be associated only with people you admire and respect.
You both have a warm, sunny disposition, and you don’t want to acknowledge your own problems or weaknesses, so you generally show only your bright face to the world.
Both of you are also rather theatrical, dramatizing or exaggerating your own feelings or emotional responses. (If you like something, you ADORE it. You’re not just irritated, you’re ABSOLUTELY FURIOUS, etc.). This is one way that you dominate, overpower, or try to control (in a subtle way) the people closest to you.
You are both strong individuals and the obvious problem you will face together is: Who’s the boss? If either or both of you are too insecure to be able to share the limelight with someone else, you will not be very happy together. On the other hand, if you are secure in your own worth, you are likely to admire one another enormously.
Chapter 2 Major Themes in the Relationship: What Brought You Together
Mercury Mutually Aspects Pluto:
As discussed below, there is a deep, probing quality to your relationship. If your relationship is long-lasting, you are likely to embark on some kind of investigative research in a scientific, historical, or psychological field – unearthing the hidden roots of a situation.
Katie’s Mercury Square Tom’s Pluto:
There is a distinct investigative quality to your conversations at times. Tom is occasionally frustrated with Katie’s opinions, as Tom wants Katie’s communications to be more revealing and deep. When the two of you argue over issues, Tom can be almost compulsive about getting to the heart of the matter, and may even be prone to forcing Katie to believe certain things, and/or to not only understand Tom’s point of view, but also adopt Tom’s opinions. At your best, the conversations you have can be very deep, but Tom may be given to psychoanalyzing things that Katie says or believes, and Katie reacts in a cerebral manner, which can frustrate Tom more. A tendency for frequent arguments or misunderstandings that are the result of miscommunications, or reading too much into what is said, may be a theme in your relationship.
Tom’s Mercury Trine Katie’s Pluto:
Your conversations are deep and probing. When you are able to connect with each other, you understand each other at a very deep level, and you may find yourselves revealing things about yourself that you have not mentioned to anyone else. You also make a good research team or investigators. At times, Tom may feel that Katie wants to direct Tom’s thoughts and opinions, but there is a general feeling that you can have deep discussions that bypass the superficial and cut to the chase. Meaningful and insightful exchanges help to support your relationship in ways that may not always be obvious, but that should certainly be appreciated.
Katie’s Moon Conjunct Tom’s Venus:
There is a sweet, tender, and sympathetic quality to the love feelings that you have for each other. You enjoy taking care of each other and nourishing each other. You probably enjoy such activities as cooking for each other or with each other. Your heart really opens up to one another and, like a mother who loves her children regardless of what they do, your affection for each other is likely to weather the most difficult trials. Tom reveals a softer, more gentle side to Katie then Tom would to most others.
Tom’s Mercury Opposition Katie’s Neptune:
You are inclined to conversations on imaginative areas like art, theater, music, psychology, and religion. Discussions of very practical and mundane affairs (for example, your annual tax forms) are inclined to be fraught with misunderstandings so strive to be very careful to be clear and precise when discussing important details.
Jupiter Mutually Aspects Saturn:
One of the most important themes in your relationship involves finding a balance between two basic needs: security, stability, order, responsibility and conserving versus freedom, envisioning new possibilities, taking risks, growing, and expanding. For details, read on . . .
Katie’s Jupiter Opposition Tom’s Saturn,
Tom’s Jupiter Opposition Katie’s Saturn:
This relationship can be a restrictive and frustrating experience for Katie, who feels that Tom opposes Katie’s aspirations or limits Katie’s opportunities and freedom. Tom may feel a need to control or discipline Katie and do so overtly, or may simply seem to disapprove and hold Katie down in subtle ways. This is because Katie stirs up some of Tom’s insecurities and fears. Tom can become free of some of these inhibitions through this relationship. Patience and understanding on Katie’s part, and a willingness to be flexible on Tom’s, will enable the two of you to be more harmonious together.
Katie’s Sun Trine Tom’s Uranus:
Playfulness and a zest for newness infuse your relationship. You really spark each other’s imagination and creativity. This quality is especially welcome in a long-term relationship because you will not fall into a lifeless routine. You spur each other to explore, take risks, and develop new creative outlets. Things work best for your relationship when you encourage each other’s independence. There is an electric, spontaneous quality between you, and your sexual relationship is lively and exciting as well. Katie finds Tom very inspiring and exciting.
Tom’s Venus Square Katie’s Uranus:
This relationship has an erratic, unstable, but exciting quality. Sexual attraction becomes very intense at times and at these moments you may feel like you cannot live without each other. But the feelings come and go quickly and they are not always reciprocated – your moods and desires get out of tune with each other, so that one of you (generally Katie) may feel like partying and the other (usually Tom) wants to have a quiet evening at home. The quality and nature of the relationship changes frequently. This is a difficult relationship to maintain over a long period of time but it is also difficult to break such an exciting relationship as well. If you want a permanent, close relationship, then both of you will need to be extremely flexible and willing to accept unexpected changes in your relationship and lifestyle. Tom is intensely (and sometimes frustratingly) intrigued and even mesmerized by Katie’s romantic and sexual energy. When Tom is feeling especially romantic, Katie may be just out of reach somehow, whether it is a physical reality or a mental distancing.
Katie’s Venus Trine Tom’s Jupiter:
You are generous with one another, always ready to help each other, and you have a great respect and appreciation for one another. You also allow one another a lot of freedom to develop other friendships, rather than clinging possessively to one another. You may also benefit from one another materially as well as emotionally.
Tom’s Venus Trine Katie’s Neptune:
You evoke in each other a greater sensitivity to music, art, and poetry, as well as feelings of compassion and sympathy. You find each other fascinating and interesting and you love exploring new dimensions of feeling and sensitivity through music, art, poetry, or religion. There is also a dreamy, romantic quality to the love that you have for each other. It feels wonderful, and both of you will appreciate the sense of being uplifted by each other. After meeting, you are likely to become more appreciative of spirituality, as you inspire each other to greater heights.
Tom’s Venus Sextile Katie’s Pluto:
Romantic love and sexual attraction is very strong. You pour your hearts out to each other and feel like you are able to express your feelings to each other very fully. This is a powerful love affair that may lead to marriage.
Chapter 3 Destiny and Final Outcome of Your Relationship
Composite Sun Conjunct Venus:
Quite simply, one of your purposes in being together is to create and express beauty, whether this is in the form of a beautiful, loving relationship, or gracious and artful works. There can also be an element of vanity, artifice, or wanting to show-off, the desire to be seen and recognized as a Beautiful Couple, whether or not that’s entirely true. Hiding or downplaying your difficulties and the ugly parts of your relationship may be helpful to a point, but if you try to maintain this image of yourselves as a happy, loving twosome despite your actual conflicts, then deeper troubles may never get attended to. However, whatever friction, dissonance, or ill will develops between you, there will also always be an urge to harmonize, reconcile, and ease your differences, and to create cooperation. It will take a lot for the two of you to ever turn against each other entirely.
Composite Sun Conjunct Uranus:
Your relationship is permeated with a tone of unconventionality, spontaneity, and unusual rhythms. Other people may see the way you relate to one another as strange, even unnatural, because you don’t conform to any of the standard patterns. Personal freedom, autonomy, and “space” will be yours in this relationship, to an unusual degree. Even if neither of you is especially progressive or “liberated” in your attitudes towards human relationships, you will be forced to open your minds and to be more non-possessive and less rigid and inhibited than you’ve ever been before.
All of this will be disruptive and unsettling to you, unless you willingly embrace and learn from change, and give up preconceived attitudes and expectations of how it “should” be. A lot of your “shoulds” will be shattered, if you are clinging too stubbornly to them. Surprise and newness are the essence of this relationship.
Composite Moon Sextile Uranus:
As a couple, you will have many unusual experiences, and a lot of friends who are unique, interesting, creative, and quite different from one another. You could gather a “family” around you that is quite unlike a traditional or “normal” family, including adopted relatives and close friends. A certain openness, acceptance of deviance from the norm, and willingness to learn from unexpected sources will be essential in this relationship. Being able to flow with change and live in the present moment will be necessary too, as there is a certain, ongoing movement in your relationship that precludes settling down into any established routine for very long. It is likely that both of you feel more alive in one another’s presence, and appreciate the decidedly *unique* energy that you create as a couple. You do things a little differently than other couples, and this fact pleases the both of you!
Composite Mercury Opposition Mars:
There is a marked tendency toward argumentativeness and sharp words between you which will need to be worked with if it is not to become an overriding dynamic in your relationship. Petty bickering and insistence on doing things in your own ways can even lead to minor accidents, especially when traveling together. Long distance automobile rides may be especially irritating.
One of the purposes of your relationship is to learn how to honestly discuss conflict and how to assert and communicate your personal desires. If you can find ways to do this without alienating or warring with each other, you will have fulfilled one of the functions of your being together.
Composite Venus Sextile Neptune:
An aura of enchantment, mystery, and romanticism permeates your relationship, and maintaining a beautiful image of one another and of yourselves as a couple is crucial to its success. If either (or both) of you allows yourself to neglect romance or, in other ways, forgets to keep the magical element alive, your partner will be inordinately disappointed. This relationship needs fantasy and beautiful dreams, candlelight, moonlit escapades, and forays into paradise! If you two can also be clearheaded at the same time, your bond with one another can be very sweet. Try your best to maintain the romantic innocence that characterizes the first stages of your partnership, as it is precious indeed.
Composite Venus Conjunct Pluto:
A complete transformation of your attitudes about love and relationship will occur through this fateful, profound connection. Expect intense feelings of attraction which can amount almost to obsession, a deep irresistible fascination with each other, and a sense that the whole thing is unavoidable even if painful at times.
What initially may feel like mad love, will reveal other, hidden sides of your emotions. The desire to control, dominate, or manipulate (sexually or in other ways) may well be a part of this. Jealous feelings, issues of trust and betrayal, as well as deep, passionate love are all easily aroused between the two of you.
Certainly this is not a bond to be taken lightly. You will learn an incredible amount about what you are capable of, through your interaction. You are playing with fire here. Whether it is a purifying fire, or an eternal flame, or whether it will all end in ashes, is up to the two of you and how conscious you are willing to become. Be mindful of the intense feelings you arouse in each other, and make sure you avoid playing games in order to “keep” this relationship that seems almost primal. Games can only push you away from each other in the long run.
Composite Jupiter Opposition Saturn:
As a couple, you seesaw between optimism, faith, and openness to future possibilities versus caution, doubt, pessimism and a deep concern for security. One of you is apt to be more liberal, generous, lax, or wasteful; the other more conservative, cautious, and frugal. This will be the source of considerable conflict within your relationship.
Also, if the more freewheeling one of you influences the other to stop holding the reins so tightly, your extravagances and debts as a couple could become very burdensome. So finding a balance is crucial to your joint success.
Chapter 4 Other Themes in Your Relationship
Tom’s Sun in Katie’s 11th house:
There is a wonderful sense of the ability to be yourself around each other. Although some possessiveness is natural in any relationship, this position suggests a better ability to let go of each other a little and to trust each other. In particular, Katie gives Tom much room to breathe. If intimacy is a big priority of Tom in terms of relationships, there may be some frustration with this overlay. Tom is likely to enjoy the offbeat and truly friendly relationship that this position offers, but may long at times for a more personal and intimate connection. However, this relationship is very much a treasure, as there is a sense in both of you that you will never be judged by the other. Both of you easily share confidences with each other, and find one another to be a wonderful audience.
Tom’s Moon in Katie’s 12th house:
Katie likes to confide in Tom, telling Tom many events and circumstances from childhood that no one else has been told. Nevertheless, Tom may feel that Katie is hard to grasp, or might find Katie hard to define or pin down. Some element of mistrust or confusion is possible over time. Tom must be especially aware that Katie is especially sensitive and attached to Tom, and sometimes acts irrationally as a result. This is because Tom touches a part of Katie that is very deep and personal.
Tom’s Mercury in Katie’s 10th house:
The two of you enjoy planning together and sharing ideas, and there is a good chance that you will work together in some kind of business together. At times, Tom feels Katie is critical of Tom’s ideas and advice. Tom has a way of reminding Katie about career goals and status in society, stimulating Katie to think and formulate plans about these areas of life.
Tom’s Venus in Katie’s 12th house:
Katie seems a bit mysterious to Tom and Tom is intrigued and fascinated by Katie, but may lack trust and feel insecure with Katie at times. It is important to be honest and candid about feelings in this relationship, as there can be hidden feelings. There may also be a strong spiritual, almost mystical affinity for each other. There is a strong *private* quality to your relationship. Katie may feel somewhat dependent on Tom for love, as Katie opens up in many very personal ways, sometimes responding irrationally to Tom. Although this vulnerability exists, Tom may be victim of some level of mistrust, as Katie doesn’t always respond in a traditional, straightforward, and public way to Tom’s love.
Tom’s Mars in Katie’s 10th house:
There may be some problems with criticism in your partnership, where Tom makes plans or expresses desires, and is faced with a certain level of resistance and skepticism from Katie. You can be of much “use” to each other on a practical level, although at times you can be rather somber with one another.
Tom’s Jupiter in Katie’s 7th house:
Katie feels buoyant and outgoing in Tom’s presence, enjoys talking and doing almost anything with Tom. Cooperation and optimism are high in this relationship and you can count on having a very upbeat and outgoing relationship much of the time. With Tom, there is a feeling that the partnership is going somewhere, which Katie finds very appealing. Katie admires Tom’s personal philosophy and particular spin on things, and finds Tom extremely companionable.
Tom’s Saturn in Katie’s 6th house:
If you are married or live together, handling schedules and day-to-day responsibilities can become a major issue and a potential stumbling block. You can lock horns when it comes to deciding who is responsible for preparing meals, cleaning the home, getting the car fixed, making sure all of the bills are paid, mowing the lawn, etc. Tom, in particular, may have the sense of contributing more than half the load, and may resent any complaints by Katie. Oddly enough, it is likely that together you probably a do a good job at meeting these responsibilities, and very often you work well together. But unresolved disagreements on how to best coordinate your efforts can be a sore point in your relationship.
Tom’s Uranus in Katie’s 1st house:
Katie’s more unusual, creative side comes out in this relationship, and Katie feels more spontaneous and exuberant with Tom than with most other people. Consequently, there is a lively feeling to your relationship, but if Tom is a rather unstable person, then Katie may feel that there is not enough stability and reliability in the relationship.
Tom’s Neptune in Katie’s 3rd house:
Fairly frequently the two of you misunderstand each other regarding some practical detail or specific instruction. Without realizing it, you express yourselves less clearly to each other than you do to others. The factual information being communicated can get lost in colorful language and flourishes, consequently resulting in misunderstandings.
Tom’s Pluto in Katie’s 1st house:
You find one another to be fascinating, mysterious, and almost charismatic. There is a strong desire to know each other more intimately, and share very personal experiences. You may also be prone to power struggles at times or try to manipulate one another.
Tom’s Sun Trine Katie’s Venus:
Despite your differences, you truly enjoy each other and find each other very attractive. You appreciate each other’s tastes, and there are many times when you feel truly comfortable in each other’s company, especially when you are doing leisurely things together, such as going to the movies or out to dinner. At times like these, the rest of the world simply doesn’t exist. This is not just about love! It’s also about “like”, as you truly like and appreciate one another. Katie loves to please Tom, and Tom truly enjoys that individualized and special attention. You also share a similarity in tastes and enjoyment of leisure activities and pleasures. Katie finds Tom’s “way” or manner extremely attractive, and there is something exceedingly charming and inviting about Katie that Tom can’t help but resist.
Tom’s Sun Sextile Katie’s Saturn:
There is a deep sense of mutual commitment and dedication that keeps the two of you together, even when you face difficult times. Katie is very dedicated and loyal to Tom, sincerely interested in being responsible to Tom, and willing to make sacrifices when necessary. The two of you work well together on practical matters and business affairs. If you marry, you will find that you can rely on each other to be helpful and responsible.
Katie’s Asc. Conjunct Tom’s Venus:
You are very special to each other and you both probably recognize that you have found a person that embodies many of the qualities of your “Ideal Mate”. Love, sweetness, tenderness, and appreciation permeate your relationship. A strong desire to please each other, and to cooperate, makes you a very harmonious couple.
Katie’s Asc. Conjunct Tom’s Uranus:
There is an electric, immediate attraction between the two of you and an element of surprise, discovery, and spontaneity will always infuse your relationship.
Tom stimulates Katie to be more uninhibited, looser, less conventional, and to experiment. Tom can also be unpredictable and changeable toward Katie, and Katie may feel that Tom is not to be relied upon. Tom brings out Katie’s independent or eccentric side. Personal freedom, independence, and individuality are highlighted in your relationship, and sometimes one or both of you feels that there is not enough togetherness, mutual dependency, or emotional closeness.
Nevertheless, there is much enthusiasm and spark between you, and your relationship is always changing, always exciting.
Katie’s Asc. Square Tom’s Mars:
The two of you frequently approach work and goals in very different ways, and consequently you are inclined to step on each other’s toes. Katie may feel that Tom is pushy or insensitive to all of the issues and concerns that are involved in a situation. You can work together very effectively, but it requires you to allow each other the freedom to approach problems in a very different way than you would. Very often you can accomplish more by working separately from each other on different aspects of a problem rather than attempting to work jointly.
Katie’s Asc. Sextile Tom’s Mercury:
Harmonious, open, and clear communication is so ingrained in your relationship that you probably take it for granted. You enjoy long talks and it seems that no matter how well you know each other, you continue to enjoy having time for long discussions.
Tom’s Moon Trine Katie’s Mercury:
Katie very easily stimulates Tom towards self-expression. This aspect means that you feel very comfortable chit-chatting about practically anything under the sun! This ease with one another is probably noticeable right from the start of your relationship, and the easygoing nature of your interaction will feel tremendous! Who else could you share such personal issues with in such an easy manner? You enjoy long talks and you feel very much at home with each other. You are able to openly share your feelings about various issues, whether they are political, religious, or personal in nature. You will find that as you spend more time together, your tastes, interests, hobbies, and activities tend to blend together harmoniously. The feeling of friendship and inner understanding of each other is very satisfying and of a very positive nature.
Katie’s Moon Sextile Tom’s Mercury:
Long, friendly conversations are frequent in your relationship. You are able to openly share your inner feelings and concerns, and very often you may feel that there are very few other people that understand and appreciate you as well as your partner does! This is true even in the early stages of your relationship. The deep level of mutual understanding and appreciation inclines your friendship to be a long, harmonious one. Tom feels comfortable and at ease with Katie, and often encourages Katie to talk about anything under the sun. You may find that you easily share personal information with each other, and feel comfortable doing so, as each of you is sincerely interested in what the other has to share. Both of you may enjoy little changes and “busy-ness” in your environment. Sharing memories with each other can be a favorite pastime. This interchart aspect suggests that you have an opportunity to solve problems in a rational and reasonable manner. Enjoy!
Katie’s Venus Conjunct Tom’s Neptune:
The old adage “love is blind”, is appropriate with this combination. What can start out as a very dreamy love affair, may eventually fizzle away and leave each of you, and perhaps Katie in particular, wondering what happened. This is because high expectations and opinions of each other exist at the outset of the relationship, and each of you, especially Tom, tries to live up to these perhaps *too* high expectations. The “out of this world” feeling that permeates your initial interactions may eventually be replaced with a sense of disappointment and disillusionment. In some exceptional cases, outright deception is involved. However, in most cases, neither of you has any intention of hurting the other. The problem generally is “errors of omission”, as each of you wants your partner to maintain the initial vision of one another. Fear of letting each other down, especially on the part of Tom, is common with this aspect, and the tendency is for Tom to feel an increasing need to withdraw. As Tom withdraws, Katie is left feeling dumbfounded, especially since Katie didn’t do anything explicitly “wrong” beyond seeing beauty in Tom’s character. The problem is that Tom senses that Katie’s opinions of Tom are perhaps too lofty and idealized, and doesn’t know how to react to this subtle pressure except to withdraw slowly but surely. There can be a “fading away” on Tom’s part that leaves Katie feeling estranged and left out. The key to handling this important dynamic in your chemistry will be to be direct with each other because, ironically enough, your deep desire to NOT let each other down will ultimately let each other down in a possibly dramatic way if you don’t face each other honestly and directly! If handled well, there is huge potential between you to enjoy a very tolerant relationship.
Katie’s Mars Trine Tom’s Pluto:
As your relationship grows over time, you begin to work together very closely on shared goals and objectives. You develop a joint sense of purpose and you join together on projects that are rich in purpose and meaning. The intimate blending of your creative efforts and career goals makes the two of you that much closer and the bonding between you is very strong. Physical and sexual attraction is also strong, and chances are high that if you marry, this will be a lasting, strong union.
Note: Because Tom Cruise’s birth time is unknown, we omitted the interpretations for Katie’s planets in Tom’s houses, as well as Tom’s Ascendant aspects to Katie’s chart.
