Timing is everything. Astrology holds the key to timing.
Love and astrology has it’s own special timing, and there are indications within your progressed chart that will help you hone into those special years when someone new will be coming into your life or it’s an indication of a marriage year.
First you have to have your natal chart in order to compare your progressed chart to it. There are three progressed charts to work with. There’s your forwarded directed chart, converse directed chart, and your solar arc progressed chart.
When you get your progressed charts, you can begin to compare them to your natal chart (a three wheel chart is recommended). Each planet progresses at a different rate, and when one of your love planets progresses to make an aspect to one of your natal – or another progressed – love planet you have a love year, bringing you either a new love relationship or possibly a marriage year !
Aspects that are formed by the progressed planet to the natal planet are the strongest, but you will also see them making aspects to the other progressed planets. I’ve seen love connections when converse to converse were seen, and progressed to converse, but most importantly progressed to natal. In many cases you’ll find up to 3 of these indicators from all or any of these combinations.
Here’s a list of what to look for, the planet in bold is the progressed planet, the other planets can be natal or progressed. And numero uno love planet is Venus of course!
- Venus – Sun, Moon, Mars, Ascendant, Descendant, MC, IC, Chiron, Jupiter, and any planet in your 7th house or your 7th house ruler.
- Mars – Sun, Venus, Angles, 7th house planets and rulers.
- Sun – Venus, Moon, Mars, Angles (especially the Descendant) and Chiron.
- Moon – Venus, Sun, Mars, 7th house planet or ruler.
- Progressed Ascendant/Descendant – Venus, Moon, Sun, Jupiter, 7th house planets and rulers.
- Progressed MC/IC Angle – Venus, Moon, Mars, 7th house planet Or 7th house ruler.
The aspects seen most frequently are conjunction, trine, and the sextile. However, squares and oppositions are noted as well.
The most frequently seen aspects for love in astrology are between these planets in order:
- Moon/Venus and Moon/Mars
- Any of the love planets to the Angles and 7th house ruler
And one more to look at is your Arabic Part of Marriage and love planets making an aspect to this point.
When you are comparing your progressed love planets to
natal/ progressed planets, look for an orb within 1 degree.
Look for Venus to work her magic from the time the aspect is exact to 1 degree after. Mars works a bit faster, look for an orb 1 degree before to exact. All the others are in the works anytime the orb is within one degree – before or after.
To fine tune the timing of when a new love or a marriage will take place look to the transits that set off the progressions.
If you are already in a love relationship and you are looking for a marriage year this works too!
That gives you an overview of love – astrology style.
