Not Another Delay Again!

Saturn delays. He makes us wait. With Saturn, it’s like running a marathon rather than a sprint. So, when a person asks about finding someone to form a family and there’s Saturn involved, it’s unlikely that the person finds someone to settle down at a young age. For example, Carter is single and is feeling the urge to have a family. His 4th house ruler conjuncts Saturn. He might feel frustrated or restricted in his attempts (to have a family). Perhaps as a result of those inner tensions, forming a family does happen later in life for him when compared to his peers. Certainly, Saturn conjunct IC ruler could manifest in a variety of other ways. For example, being cautious, realistic or even having a fear about forming a family. Read More »


7th House

Based on my limited knowledge of traditional astrology, the 7th house represents the other person, our partner, romantic or business and a host of other matters. So if there’s a Mercury in your natal 7th, it could suggest that Mercurial themes such as communication, student, transport is associated with your partner.

After numerous consultations with clients over time, it seems that the 7th representing the partner is not encompassing enough. I have found repeatedly that a person with say Mercury in the 7th could mean that the person thinks or talks about relationships all the time or with a therapist. Open enemies a.k.a. people who openly object to him/her could do so with words, contracts, speed, etc. If the 7th is taken to represent our partner instead of say open enemies,  the 7th could represent anything about our partner – our relationship needs, how we experience our partner, the physical appearance and personality of our partner, etc.


Single or Dual Direction Causation

Howard’s 7th ruler conjuncts his Midheaven. There’s a clear connection between his significant one-to-one relationship and his career (or other matters as represented by the 7th and MC). So when his relationship is going well, his career is very likely to go well too. Does it work the other way as well? i.e. when his career goes well, his relationship goes well too. I don’t think so. The midheaven is a sensitive point, it receives energy and doesn’t give out energy. So, it’s a single causation – relationship affects career and not the other way round.


The Danish Girl – A Look at Lili

I watched the movie “The Danish Girl” (2005) just now. It’s a difficult movie to watch as my world views are challenged and the movie forced me to think through them. For those who have not heard of the movie, it’s about a male and female artist who were married. The husband named Einar / Lili came out as a transgender woman to the wife named Gerda who supported her throughout her journey and transition to a woman.Read More »

Will there be a Divorce?

Moon is on the 1st. The querent is feeling emotional regarding her hopes. Or a friend is with her now. I don’t look at quincunxes but the Moon is in the same degree as Sun, which is a natural significator for men in general. There’s a sense of letting go. In fact, the querent asked “Will my husband ever go?” The answer seems yes, based on the foregoing. But, as I have said, I don’t consider quincunxes. Let’s plod on.Read More »

Will I Go Off with my Lover?


Mars and Moon sits on the 7th. Suggests an impulsive, sex’s-on-his-mind-all-the-time lover. Maybe a Latin lover. Mars rules turned 5th and turned 12th. Suggesting a hidden romance, sexual pleasure. But the foregoing could describe our querent too. Interestingly, Moon rules our querent and her 2nd house of money and possessions. Has the querent a monetary interest in the relationship? Read More »

Will we Get Back Together?

The Headlines

Venus and Chiron are sitting on the angles. Chiron is the tighter one. Let’s start from here. Chiron, Pluto and Moon cluster on and around the 7th. The partner is emotionally hurt and feels abandoned, let down, perhaps by his parents. He’s going through a dark period in his life, even potentially depression.

Venus is in 12°. Looking around, Pluto, Mars, and Saturn are in 12° as well! What are the odds of that? Venus can’t be interpreted in isolation then. There was probably an event to fight for her partner who is also her best friend/her hopes and wishes (Venus sextile Mars), ending of love which is painful (Venus square Saturn), transformation of love which might be for the best (Venus sextile Pluto). Venus rules turned 12th. Something that is hidden, of self-undoing. Maybe the partner needed therapy especially given his sense of deep emotional woundedness.

The Analysis

Mercury, the querent, just left the group of planets in 12°. But it’s heading back there again by retrograde, perhaps to see if she can do anything regarding the separation/divorce from her partner.

Mercury and Jupiter – Mercury is retrograding to apply a sextile to Jupiter. Jupiter receives Mercury in its sign. But before the sextile can be perfected, Mercury meets Saturn and then the Sun. Mercury is frustrated in its attempt to reconcile with Jupiter. As if meeting Saturn is not enough, it has to burned by the Sun!

Moon and Jupiter – The Moon doesn’t make an applying aspect to Jupiter.

Jupiter aspects 1st – Jupiter doesn’t make an applying aspect to the Ascendant.

Judgment: It is unlikely that both of them will get back together.

P.S.: before or after addressing the headlines, it’s best to look at the significators in detail before looking at perfecting aspects.
