When to Find Love?
-- A Quick Help --

Time and again people desperately ask us the same questions:

  • When to find love?
  • Where to find love?

This proves over and again that the mindset of most people is still wrong.

People assume that (love) relationships are still the ultimate goal in life or even the ultimate purpose of life.

From a metaphysical point of view that is not so at all and even self-delusive thinking.

Today's society has programmed people the wrong way by assuming that money and relationships are goals and purposes in life -- to keep you dependent (even enslaved if you wish).

However, relationships (in a wide sense) are tools or means to develop yourself. Self-development is the ultimate purpose of life.

You will only find love at the appropriate time and place according to what's 'written' in your pre-birth agreement for this lifetime.

So, not everyone is destined to find love this lifetime -- there is even no need to. It all depends upon what you will need to develop or learn this lifetime.

Astrology lets you take a look when the odds of finding love (following your 'natal promise') are high.

While it should be no secret any longer to know where to find love, the question on when to find love still remains open.

Though we discussed the question when romance or love will be in the air by checking some specific degrees in your progressed horoscope, some other simple methods were still missing.

Not for long anymore as you will find here some very simple and straightforward methods that will give YOU the opportunity to look up for yourself when to find love!

So, what are these simple methods to know when to find love?

  • Check the transiting Venus and Mars positions (I)
  • Check the transiting Venus and Mars positions (II)
  • Check the progressed Moon-Venus aspects
  • Check transiting Jupiter and Saturn and the ruler of the 5th house
  • Check the position of the progressed Sun or Moon
  • Are you in a Venus love cycle?
  • Check the progressed Moon-Vertex relationship
  • Check the Mars returns



    Check the transiting Venus and Mars positions (I)

    Whenever the planet of love (Venus) and the planet of instinctive drives and desires (Mars) transit your Sun sign, romance can be in the air. These are periods in which attraction rules and when you can increase the odds of finding love.

    Also, when both transiting planets are in a sign that trines your Sun sign (i.e transiting Venus and Mars are in a sign of the same element as your Sun sign), it's a good time to find love.

    The trine is a "no friction" aspect and love may enter your life "as unexpectedly as a thief in the night."

    For your convenience we have calculated the dates when both transiting Venus and transiting Mars are in the same sign from 2006 till 2020, so that you can easily look up the dates when to find love!

    Check the transiting Venus and Mars positions (II)

    From empirical research, we noticed that whenever the planet of love (Venus) and the planet of instinctive drives and desires (Mars) transit the zodiac sign that is opposite your Sun sign, romance can be in the air.

    In many instances, we found that this period marks a time of (sexual) encounters and love. These are periods in which attraction rules and when you can increase the odds of finding love.

    When both planets are in the zodiac sign opposite your own Sun sign, they are in your 7th solar house (the 7th house counting from your Sun sign) of encounters, the (significant) "other", meetings and relationships. That's why they may bring attraction and love.

    For your convenience we have calculated the dates when both transiting Venus and transiting Mars are in the sign opposite the Sun sign from 2009 till 2020 so that you can easily look up when to find love!

    Check the progressed Moon-Venus aspects

    Another very simple way to answer the question when to find love is by taking a look at your (secondary) progressed horoscope (1 day for a year).

    If you don't have any astrology software to calculate your progressed charts, just visit Astrodienst's Web Site to get your free progressed charts, and so much more.

    When to find love is easy because any time the progressed Moon aspects Venus with an orb of 1° love and romance may be in the air. Use all the aspects that are a multiple of 30, starting with 0° (the conjunction) and disregard the square (aspect of 90°).

    Also, do not underestimate the converse progressions, they are as valuable as the direct progressions -- if not more!

    Return to the top


    Check transiting Jupiter and Saturn and the ruler of your 5th house

    Whenever transiting Jupiter and Saturn both make a major harmonious aspect (conjunction, sextile or trine) to the ruler (or co-ruler) of your 5th house of love, be prepared for an important and radical change in your love life. Use an orb of 3° and list the periods when both planets build such a soft aspect to know when to find love.

    Note that we use the Topocentric house system because this system has giiven us the best results. Also try out the equal houses as they are most valuable too and give some additional information.

    Also note that Aquarius, Scorpio and Pisces have two rulers:

    • Saturn and Uranus rule Aquarius
    • Mars and Pluto rule Scorpio
    • Jupiter and Neptune rule Pisces

    Often, the outer planets, Pluto, Neptune and even Uranus conjunct, sextile or trine the ruler of the 5th house may bring a profound change too. Uranus is often more short-lived though.

    Check the position of the progressed Sun or Moon

    This rule is quite simple too if you want to know when to find love.

    If you're a woman, check if the progressed Sun conjuncts your natal MC. Don't forget to take a look at the converse progressions too!

    If you're a man, check if the progressed Moon conjuncts your natal MC. Don't forget to take a look at the converse progressions too!

    Often, this way the Lights indicate when to find love when they culminate by bringing the archetypal male or female principle in the spotlight.

    Are you in a Venus love cycle?

    In our March 2005, Issue #4 of our Love Letter we discussed the 8-year cycle of Venus, planet of love.

    Indeed the ages of 8, 16, 24, 32, 40, 48 ... (and all multiples of 8) are ages ruled by Venus, planet of love, relationships and encounters. In these ages (new) friendships and, sometimes, love almost always will come your way...

    This is the more so if you are born under the zodiac signs of Taurus or Libra -- which are both ruled by Venus.

    This may also apply if Venus culminates in your natal chart (which denotes that Venus is the highest planet or in other words, the planet that is closest to the MC, the Midheaven, and stands above all other planets and bodies).

    • If your solar return for one of these ages shows favorable aspects to Venus, your love life may prosper for the coming (eight) years.

    • If your solar return for one of these ages shows unfavorable aspects to Venus, your relationships may bring sorrow and/or endings in the coming (eight) years.

    There is something else too about the Sun-Venus Synodic Cycle.

    If the transiting Sun-Venus conjunction is exactly conjunct one of your personal planets or points (Sun, Moon, Ascendant, MC, Pars Fortuna, Mercury, Venus or Mars), expect a profound change and transformation in your (love) life, the more far-reaching when Venus is retrograde!

    Below you can find the transiting Sun-Venus conjunctions for the next couple of years so you can check whether or not this duo conjuncts any of your personal points:

    • March 30, 2005 at 10° Aries (Venus direct)
    • January 13, 2006 at 23° Capricaorn (Venus retrograde)
    • October 27, 2006 at 4° Scorpio (Venus direct)
    • August 17, 2007 at 24° Leo (Venus retrograde)
    • June 8, 2008 at 18° Gemini (Venus direct)
    • March 27, 2009 at 7° Aries (Venus retrograde)
    • January 11, 2010 at 21° Capricorn (Venus direct)
    • October 28, 2010 at 5° Scorpio (Venus retrograde)
    • August 16, 2011 at 23° Leo (Venus direct)
    • June 5, 2012 at 15° Gemini (Venus retrograde)
    • March 28, 2013 at 8° Aries (Venus direct)
    • January 11, 2014 at 21° Capricorn (Venus retrograde)
    • October 24, 2014 at 1° Scorpio (Venus direct)
    • August 15, 2015 at 22° Leo (Venus retrograde)
    • June 6, 2016 at 16° Gemini (Venus direct)
    • March 25, 2017 at 4° Aries (Venus retrograde)
    • January 8, 2018 at 18° Capricorn (Venus direct)
    • October 26, 2018 at 3° Scorpio (Venus retrograde)
    • August 13, 2019 at 21° Leo (Venus direct)

    So, check your natal charts and see if in the future one of these conjunctions joins one of your natal personal points and if so, be in for a most important transformation in your (love) life.

    Check the progressed Moon-Vertex relationship

    Check if, and when, the progressed Moon is EXACTLY (in the same numerical degree) conjunct your (natal or progressed) Vertex. This configuration also tells you when to find love!

    The Vertex is said to bring "fated encounters", which we have found to be almost always true, one way or the other.

    Also, don't underestimate the influence and importance of Venus or the ruler of your 5th house of love conjoining the Vertex regarding your love life.

    Return to the top


    Check the Mars returns

    Michele Finey has found that looking at Mars returns is a compelling and quite reliable way to find the time when love will blossom.

    When in a Mars return, Venus and Mars are conjunct, the scene is set for romantic developments.

    Besides the conjunction, tight aspects between Venus and Mars can signify major relationship developments.

    When a Mars return occurs at the same time with a Venus return, expect truly amazing events in relationships.

    Dreams may come true when such 'synchronised Venus-Mars returns' occur!
