CosmiTec's Love Letter, Issue #113 -- Marriages and Venus Returns
April 21, 2014

Our site management is rolling out a new e-zine 'builder' which we are now testing.

It has some features that will make it much easier for us to write and send the Love Letters in the very near future.

Currently, 'building' the Love Letters is quite time-consuming.

The new system will have some nice additions, among others the ability to flawlessly include images, videos etc. in the body of the newsletter.

This option is great if we want to explain some techniques and need some chart wheels or other images/videos to show how things work.

Soon (perhaps with the next issue if some minor bugs are ironed out), our Love Letters will be written via the new system.

For you, this will not change anything and we don't expect to change the layout (look & feel) of the Love Letter now.

However, the system change MAY cause some issues regarding the layout (for example) because of unknown bugs and that's why we want to inform you about the upcoming system changes.

If you see some weird things in the layout, just let us know.

With Love!
Luc De Jaeger

Click here to download the May 2014 calendar in pdf format.

In general, events are likely to happen around May 2, May 9-10, May 16-17, May 23 and/or May 29-30.

This month will affect some birthdays in particular:
  • February 4, March 20-21, May 5-6, June 21-22, August 7-8, September 23-24, November 7-8 or December 22 who will experience a major and powerful turning point in life.

  • The January 30, March 16, May 1, June 16, August 2-3, September 18, November 3 or December 17 birthdays will experience quite some unreal events.

    Your spiritual awareness will increase manifold and you may rather want to hide yourself and prefer to live in seclusion.

    Some of these birthdays will 'disappear' from this world while others may experience confusion, a loss of the frame of reality and/or spiritual heights.

  • The January 3-4, February 16-17, April 3, May 19, July 5, August 21, October 6-7 and November 20-21 birthdays will face sadness and a feeling of depression.

    There can be illness and the inability to express yourself or unfold properly.
If you are born around January 30-31, March 16-17, May 1-2, June 17-18, August 3-4, September 18-19, November 3-4 or December 17-18 you may enjoy concerts and musical performances around May 1.

For some of you, there will be kind of an awakening with unseen spiritual insights and a feeling of bliss.

Follow your dreams.

If you are born around this day of May 1, your whole (solar return) year (counting from birthday to birthday) is marked by financial expenses and an ultra sensitive and vacillating mood.

Following your dreams can be costly.

Physically, you may feel weak and you may be more spiritually inclined.

Also, some of you may experience 'cold showers' one way or the other -- so, beware of misguided states.

Mercury at 20° Taurus opposes Saturn at 20° Scorpio around May 2-3, resulting in obstructions and lots of senseless talks.

You can't decide because you can't make up your mind.

In the fixed sign Taurus, Mercury tends to chew things over and over without finding a way out.

Mercury (and your thinking alike) turns circles.

This Mercury-Saturn combo can be extremely stubborn and fanatic also.

There are fixed opinions and it has no sense to convince the other(s) because the mind is not open for insightful discussions.

Around the same period of May 2-3, Venus enters initiating and commanding Aries.

In Aries, Venus, the planet of harmony and balance, is in the sign of its detriment.

Venus in this position takes on a more action-oriented attitude and loves assertive behavior.

Venus in the sign of its detriment wants to conquer and wants to be loved/liked.

Notice that the dispositor of Venus (which is Mars because Venus is in the sign ruled by Mars) too is in the sign of its detriment (Libra).

In other words, Venus and Mars are now both in mutual reception by sign and will be in aspect soon (but that's something we will discuss in a second).

Anyway, the entrance of Venus in Aries brings love opportunities, love at first sight, sudden love encounters and enjoyable meetings.

If you are born around May 5-6, your whole (solar return) year (counting from birthday to birthday) is about profound changes and major turning points in your life.

Expect milestones to happen this (solar return) year and expect your life changing direction.

Around May 6-7 there is sorrow and a depressed mood.

You feel downtrodden.

If you are born around January 3-4, February 16-17, April 3, May 19, July 5, August 21, October 6-7, November 20-21, these feelings are likely to affect you most.

Mercury enters its own sign Gemini around May 7 and will bring favorable news and relief.

There is news about new plans, new perspectives and breakthroughs that overturn a status quo, resulting in optimism and increased confidence.

If you are born around January 4-5, February 17-18, April 4, May 20, July 6, August 22, October 7-8, November 21-22 this may especially apply to you.

The Sun at 20° Taurus opposes Saturn at 20° Scorpio around May 10.

Often, the Sun-Saturn opposition is related to the passing of a 'father figure' (an authority), a celebrity, a leader or VIP.

This aspect blocks creative self-expression and often results in resignation or the inability to shine and unfold in some way.

It's a separative aspect above all.

Usually, vitality is low and you may lack some confidence.

Try to keep a low profile now because the energies are too constricting.

Around May 11, Venus at 9° Aries opposes retrograde Mars at 9° Libra.

Both planets are in mutual reception and in the signs of their detriment.

This aspect of 'clashes and crashes' may work out physically (the more so because of the additional sobering Sun-Saturn opposition) and may result in physical injuries.

When Venus and Mars are in an exact aspect, people easily tend to bump into each other (often literally) -- for good or ill.

It's a time during which collisions easily happen.

Keep a distance (literally and figuratively) and try not to lose control.

On a more positive note, this aspect highly increases irresistible attraction and meeting one's other half.

Passions may run high.

If you are born around December 30, January 29, February 28, March 30, April 29-30, May 31, July 1, August 1-2, September 2, October 2, November 2 or December 1 this may apply to you.

If you are single, expect love at first sight and a powerful and major love union that will have some issues and hurdles to be taken in August 2014 but that will end in some sort of unification in February 2015.

For most people, mid May is a period during which knowing and honoring your (and the others') boundaries is important.

Because Mercury at 7° Gemini squares Neptune at 7° Pisces on the same day of May 11, confusion reigns though.

Beware of betrayal, theft and lies.

There are hidden or secret affairs going on and this aspect suggests escapist tendencies.

Secret love affairs may come out into the open.

The May 13-14 Full Moon period brings agony, defeat and disappointments, especially related to your relationships (in a wide sense).

It's a sad period full of suffering, pain or heartbreak.

You are missing (a) beloved one(s).

If you are born around January 3-4, February 16-17, April 3, May 19, July 5, August 21, October 6-7 or November 20-21, this applies to you most.

On a mundane level, expect arrests and the dissolving of criminal groups.

Venus at 13° Aries squares Pluto at 13° Capricorn around the same day of May 14 reinforcing the intense, sad and tumultuous configurations of mid May.

There is love's sorrow and separation from beloved ones all over mid May (especially between May 9-15).

However, May 15-17 look (much) brighter when Venus conjuncts Uranus at 14° Aries, bringing sudden insight and windfalls.

You feel happy and are in a creative mood.

Love may knock on your door and you may encounter attractive people.

It's a romantic period as well.

If you are born around January 4-6, February 17-19, April 4-5, May 20-22, July 6-8, August 22-24, October 7-9 or November 21-23, the auspicious configurations especially apply to you.

May 17-18 bring travel, a change of the place, a move or a change of residence.

The change of the place may be imposed or enforced (for example because of work-related reasons).

This will especially apply to you if you are born around January 22-23, March 7-9, April 22-24, June 8-10, July 25-27, September 10-11, October 25-27 or December 9-11.

If you are born around January 6, February 19-20, April 6, May 22, July 8, August 24, October 9 or November 23 the days of May 16-17 can become particularly beautiful and enjoyable.

Venus at 17° Aries squares Jupiter at 17° Cancer around May 18.

You may consider doing some home improvements resulting in financial expenses.

Severe obstructions and health issues bring sadness around May 19.

If you are born around January 3-4, February 16-17, April 3, May 19, July 5, August 21, October 6-7 and November 20-21, you will feel these difficult energies most.

If you are born around May 19, illness will mark most of your (solar return) year (counting from birthday to birthday).

Mars stations and turns direct again at 9° Libra around May 19-20.

Stationing Mars in the sign of its detriment may become hostile and disrupt a peaceful environment.

We expect quite some crime stories to enter the news around the station.

Mars becomes combative again, even though it's posited in a peaceful sign but the stationing direct motion just starts to release long pent-up energies.

This is the more so because the Sun is now at the Fixed Star Alcyone, the brightest star of the Pleiades.

This degree area is also called 'the Weeping Sisters', and for a reason...

The Sun enters Gemini around May 20-21 and brings breaking news and information related to successful projects.

May 22-23 too are related to good news and fortunate events.

Around May 26, Venus at 26° Aries opposes the North Node of the Moon at 26° Libra which may result in withdrawal and the need to avoid people.

Love's sorrow is likely and you may feel lonely or just need some time alone.

Some of you may be dumped by your lover or partner.

If you are born around January 16-18, March 2-4, April 16-18, June 2-3, July 19-21, September 4-6, October 20-21 or December 3-5 you will feel these influences most.

Financially, you may need to live on a strict budget for now as well.

The Sun at 7° Gemini squares Neptune at 7° Pisces around the May 28-29 New Moon, marking a day of illness and sadness.

You may be disappointed and some inexplicable situations may cause fear.

Beware of (self-)delusive behavior.

Around the same period of May 28-29, Venus enters its own sign Taurus.

Venus in Taurus needs lots of comfort and is possessive, a reason why you strongly cling to your possessions.

But comfort may come at a cost though.

Around May 29, Mercury, the messenger, enters emotional and home-loving Cancer.

A lot of information goes about the home (or nation) and how it brings about a powerful turning point in life.

May 30-31 bring separation from a beloved one, break-ups and/or divorces.

This may especially apply to you if you are born around January 22, March 7-8, April 22-23, June 8, July 25, September 9-10, October 25-26 or December 9.

What's New on Our Web Site?

We added three new pages since our previous Love Letter.

One about the astrological conditions for a comfortable relationship.

Another page about age differences in marriages and another one about compatibility at the working floor

These three pages are based upon articles that were previously published in a Love Letter.

Marriages and Venus Returns

Because Venus is the planet of love and relationships (among others), astrologers focus a lot on this planet to delineate the love life of a person.

Venus also represents enjoyable encounters and agreemenst (contracts) and that's why it's often found prominent during a marriage or the formalizing of a partnership.

Also, the Venus cycle (of 8 years and multiples) is found a very reliable indicator in the way love starts and unfolds.

We already discussed this important subject on our When to Find Love page.

Similarly, when (transiting) Venus conjuncts its natal position, it marks the start of a new (love) cycle.

Such Venus returns are told to show how one's love life unfolds till the next Venus return.

When this theory holds, it should also show if marriage might occur during a particular Venus return.

Following our own research, this may hold true, but it's not always that simple.

Currently, we have based our research results on the marriage dates of quite some men and women (most of all celebrities) and analyzed the Venus return as a stand-alone chart prior to the marriage date.

The charts were calculated for the place of birth.

Our preliminary research results lead to the following important conclusions already:
  • It's easier (more obvious) to find marriage in a female Venus return than in a male Venus return.

  • When delineating Venus returns you consistently have to look at the following configurations:
    • Look for all midpoint pictures that involve the Sun/Moon midpoint (45° dial/list, orb 1°)

    • Look for all midpoint pictures that involve the AS/MC midpoint (45° dial/list, orb 1°)

    • Look for all totally exact midpoint pictures (45° dial/list, orb 0°00' - 0° 01')

    • In the Venus return of women, we have found that any midpoint combination between the Vernal Point (the Aries point or 0° Aries), the Moon and Venus (45° dial/list, orb 1°) may denote marriage.

      For example: MO = VE/Vp or Vp = MO/VE is significantly often found in the Venus return prior to the marriage

  • Often, Saturn is part of an exact midpoint picture but in case Saturn rules the Ascendant, Descendant or 10th house of the Venus return, Saturn may work out well.

    It may be important to take the planetary rulerships into account when using midpoints!

    This is something we noticed many times before and this surely need more investigation.

  • We have not found any particular aspect from Venus that stands out.

  • In some cases, Venus was rising or culminating but not significantly so.
Let's take a look at some random examples of celebrities to show how the above-listed astrological principles apply:
  • Queen Elizabeth II married Prince Philip on November 20, 1947.

    Her Venus return prior to the marriage date shows the following exact midpoints (45° dial/list):
    • KN = PL/MC: to have influence over others, the own change and transformation through a union

    • JU = SO/MO: to experience happiness, a marriage, successes

    • MA = AS/MC: to initiate something, to be active

  • Marilyn Monroe married Joe DiMaggio on January 14, 1954.

    Her Venus return prior to the marriage date shows the following exact midpoints (45° dial/list):
    • KN = AS/MC: to bond or unite, to be connected

    • JU = SA = NE = SO/MO: uncertainty and confusing moments, to experience health issues

    • SO = JU/AS: to be happy with someone else, the successful union

    • Vp = MO/VE: the loving woman in public

  • Frank Sinatra married Mia Farrow on July 21, 1966.

    His Venus return prior to the marriage date shows the following exact midpoints (45° dial/list):
    • Vp = KN/MC = JU: to be publicly happy with someone, the happy connection in public

  • George W. Bush married Laura on November 5, 1977.

    His Venus return prior to the marriage date shows the following exact midpoints (45° dial/list):
    • VE = MA/JU = SO/MO: to marry

  • The Venus return of Laura Bush prior to her marriage shows the following exact midpoints:
    • VE = AS/MC: romantic moments, to live in comfort and beauty, to experience harmony and love

    • KN = SO/MA: friendship, to work together, to be active together, to marry

  • Clint Eastwood married Dina Ruiz on March 29, 1996.

    His Venus return prior to the marriage date shows the following exact midpoints (45° dial/list):
    • VE = VE/JU: happiness in love

    • MO = VE/MC = JU/MC: romantic feelings, fulfillment in matters of love, happiness through or with a woman
