The Composite 1st House in Astrology
While the 1st house rules the self in a natal chart, the composite 1st house rules the relationship itself and your outward identity together. It shows how people view your relationship, and how you come across together.

The Composite 1st House in the Signs
Composite 1st House in Aries
Aries is an energetic sign, so the composite 1st house in Aries can make you two come across as an energetic couple. You may do a lot together, constantly on the go, and make be more active together than apart (depending on your natal charts). You may also seem more impulsive and have a hard time when fighting, and this can spill out publicly, so working on controlling that can be important. The crux of the fighting may be found with the areas of life ruled by the house the composite Mars is located in the composite chart.
Composite 1st House in Taurus
You can come across as more grounded, stable pairing with the composite 1st house in Taurus, and this can help you to stick together through a lot (whether this is a personal or professional coupling). You may be seen as being in it for the long haul together, but this placement can also make things a little boring at times, so you need to make sure you don’t let that happen (especially in personal relationships). This can be an excellent position for a business relationship since Taurus naturally governs money.
Composite 1st House in Gemini
Gemini is the sign of the mind, so with the composite 1st house in Gemini, it may seem like a meeting of the minds. Mental connection can be important between the two of you, and may seem like a strong bond. You can be an active pair, and constantly want things to do and a variety of things to do. But you can also get scattered and may be prone to anxiousness more together than apart (depending on natal placements). Some grounding energy can be helpful, though your adaptability can be an asset.
Composite 1st House in Cancer
Cancer is the sign of emotions, so with the composite 1st house in Cancer, the emotional connection between you can seem most important, and you may come across as deeply understanding one another emotionally. You can be a nurturing, supportive pair, and can create something with a solid foundation together. As Cancer rules family, this can be a good placement for family members or someone you want to create a family with. You may need to make sure you don’t get swept up in emotions together and lack objectivity.
Composite 1st House in Leo
Leo is a fun sign, so with the composite 1st house in Leo, you can be a pair who has a lot of fun together. It can be a great placement for personal love (romantic, friends, family) relationships since Leo is affectionate and wants a personal connection. Professionally, this may be a helpful placement if you’re pursuing a creative endeavor together. The downside with Leo is stubborn pride, so when you fight, you may get stuck in your trenches and feel especially wounded by any insults.
Composite 1st House in Virgo
Virgo is the sign of work, so having the composite 1st house in Virgo can be helpful for professional pairings, but you have to resist the urge to be overly critical of each other’s work. Being overly critical can be an issue in personal relationships as well with this placement, and you need to not pick each other apart. You can come across as a quiet, respectable pair, and if you can avoid the criticism, you get more done together than apart (depending on natal placements).
Composite 1st House in Libra
Libra is the sign of relationships, so having the composite 1st house in Libra is the most natural position for a relationship of any kind (even enemies!). You can come across really well together, and seem good together, whether personal or professional. You may seem like a charming couple, diplomatic and aware of your surroundings, and avoid fights as much as you can,preferring compromise. But this can lead to problems and resentment if you’re not being open with one another, and indecision can also be an issue.
Composite 1st House in Scorpio
With the composite 1st house in Scorpio, you may seem like an intense, strong pairing, more formidable together than apart (depending on natal placements). This can help keep you together, but can also lead to emotional intensity, rage, and hostility at times, and you have to avoid trying to control one another. Passion can run high in personal relationships, and this can lead to all sorts of problems if not properly used. This can be a transformative relationship, but that can be for better or worse.
Composite 1st House in Sagittarius
Sagittarius is a fun-loving sign in search of adventure, so having the composite 1st house in Sagittarius can make you come across as an adventurous pairing. You may travel a lot together, and can be more open to new experiences together. The downside to Sagittarius with relationships is this is the commitment-phobic sign, so commitment may be more difficult to find with this placement, whether personal or professional. If you can give each other a lot of space, that can be a good thing, and you may prefer to not make anything official.
Composite 1st House in Capricorn
Composite 1st house in Capricorn can be excellent for business and professional relationships since Capricorn rules career/goals and ambitions, so you can accomplish a great deal together, perhaps hit greater highs and more successes together than apart. You can come across as a responsible, stable pairing and stick together for the long-term. In personal relationships, you may encourage each other to go for your ultimate goals, but you do need to watch to make sure you don’t have too much emotional distance.
Composite 1st House in Aquarius
With Aquarius being the unconventional sign, having the composite 1st house in Aquarius can mean you come across as an interesting, oddball pairing. With Aquarius ruling friendships, this can be a great placement for a friendship; in personal and professional relationships, you may seem to have a foundation of friendship. Together, you may be more open to change, and may experience more changes together (usually in the areas of life ruled by the house the composite Uranus is located). You may need to work on emotional connection and stability.
Composite 1st House in Pisces
You can come across as a highly compassionate, helpful pairing with the composite 1st house in Pisces. You may have great emotional understanding, but can get a little lost and scattered at times. You may be more easily taken advantage of together than apart, and healthy, solid, boundaries can be incredibly important. You may see the best in one another, but need to make sure you’re not ignoring real problems. It may be hard for you to act together, so this placement may not be ideal for professional partnerships.
Composite Planets in the 1st House
Composite Sun in the 1st house
With the Composite Sun in the 1st house, the relationship can be very important to both of you. It can be the main focus each of you has, for better or worse, and you can identify strongly with the relationship. You can feel that you’re capable of more together and in the relationship than you are on your own. The upside of this placement is that the relationship is so important to both of you, but the downside is you can get too caught up in the relationship and need to make sure you don’t lose your individual identities.
