Patterns of Interest > Sun Venus
Ryan O'Neal and Farrah Fawcett
Ryan O'Neal and Farrah Fawcett have been in a committed relationship for most of the past twenty-six years. They "dated " from 1980 to 1997 when Farrah left Ryan for James Orr. Later they renewed their relationship.
Ryan and Farrah share a slightly unusual, but nevertheless conventional connection. How can something be unusual and conventional? Well it's not that the patterns in their synastry is uncommon, it's the length of time it has taken to perfect - or become exact - which is the oddity.
There is a wide trine between Ryan's natal Sun and Farrah's natal Venus. This is also dissociate, meaning that it is in zodiac signs that are not particularly friendly (Taurus is an Earth sign, Sagittarius is a Fire sign. Notwithstanding this, the trine is still relatively weak, being almost 4 degrees from being exact.
The interesting thing is that this trine is progressing towards perfection. That is, over time, the progressed versions of the two planets will make a trine. This does happen, although it is not guaranteed, in many relationships which also contain a natal Sun natal Venus trine aspect.
In 1980 the progressing trine is further apart than the natal trine...
...but over time, because the Sun mostly moves more slowly than progressing Venus (except when Venus is stationary and retrograde), eventually Venus will start to catch up with and overtake the Sun.
By 1990, Venus has made some ground. The distance from perfect trine is less than three degrees.
By 1997 is less than one and a half degrees from exact...but the couple temporarily split.
In 2003, they re-unite... and their progressed Sun progressed Venus trine is exact.
