It is known that Bob Dylan and Joan Baez were very attracted to each other for various reasons, including their political views and activism as well as having a personal relationship that fell just short of a legal tie in marriage.
There are a few Astrofacts that show the astrological reasons for their attraction, and here listed are what could be considered the major aspects that are the cosmic influence on them, as aspects manifest in the lives of so many other celebrity couples, such as Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers, Kathreen Hepburn and Spencer Tracy, to name just a few.
The most powerful magnetic factor in the chart is identified by their exact Sun/Moon conjunction. Here is where the tie has its most emotional response and the one that draws the couple to feel and believe they have a destiny together, or that they are continuing a purpose that was founded in perhaps a previous life cycle.
They loved each other’s ideas, shown in the close dynamic between Dylan’s Mercury (mentality) and Baez’s appreciative Venus near his ascendant. Baez’s Mars is opposite Dylan’s Sun and this profoundly stimulates the Sun/Moon conjunction all the more, and definitely adds kick to their chemistry, with an extra dose of physical passion.
