When To Marry?
When do people actually marry?

To answer the question when to marry, we analyzed numerous horoscopes for (statistically) significant indications and configurations that point to a marriage.

This page is not about finding the most appropriate and auspicious time to get married (this topic is discussed on our wedding setting date page), but it's about the FACTUAL dates/timing people actually do marry.

On this page, we publish our findings, based upon different astrological methods.

This way, you may be able to find out in your own horoscope when to marry. For the moment, we researched three methods:

  1. marriage configurations in the Solar return charts

  2. marriage configurations in the Progressed charts

  3. marriage configurations in the Tertiary Direction I charts

We will update this page every time new significant results come up.

Your Marriage Year in the Solar Returns

We analyzed 546 solar return charts calculated for the year of marriage.

At first, we did not take into account the gender of the person involved, so we incorporated the solar return charts for both men and women looking for common astrological signatures pointing to a marriage.

Actually, we did not find too much significant results in the solar return charts. The ones that stand out are listed below.

The results changed completely when we split our research group into male and female horoscopes!

Below, we list these significant preliminary findings found in ALL 546 solar return charts calculated for the year of marriage of both men and women.

Our Preliminary Findings in the Solar Returns (configurations in bold are highly significant and found over and over again):

  • the Moon opposite Uranus (orb 3°) (Chi square 46.00). This aspect comes out powerfully and in numerous cases. If you find it, look for other marriage configurations to find confirmation.

  • Ceres/Part of Fortune = Vesta (the Asteroid Vesta in the midpoint between the Asteroid Ceres and the Part of Fortune) (45° dial or 8th Harmonic; orb 1°) (Chi square 45.0).

  • the Moon trine the Part of Fortune (orb 3°) (Chi square 25.0). The Part of Fortune is calculated differently for day or night births. This aspect too is found in numerous solar return charts.

  • JU/MC = VE (Venus in the midpoint between the MC and Jupiter) (45° dial or 8th Harmonic; orb 1°) (Chi square 25.0).

  • Pluto trine the 9th house cusp (Topocentric houses) (orb 3°) (Chi square 24.0)

  • the 8th house cusp inconjunct (150°) the Moon's North Node (orb 3°) (Chi square 20.0)

  • the Sun sextile the Part of Fortune (orb 3°) (Chi square 18.0)

  • Venus semi-sextile the Ascendant (orb 3°) (Chi square 18.0)

  • the Sun sextile Chiron (orb 1°) (Chi square 18.0)

  • Mercury semi-square Jupiter (orb 3°) (Chi square 17.0)

  • Sun conjunct Juno (orb 3°) (Chi square 16.0) (this combo means that when transiting Juno conjoins the natal Sun around your birthday, marriage is likely to take place within a year in both male or female horoscopes)

  • Venus trine Vesta (orb 3°) (Chi square 16.0)

  • Venus and Neptune in reception (Chi square 16.0)

  • Moon parallel Cupido (the TNP, not the asteroid) (Chi square 16.0)

  • Uranus stationary (Chi square 11.0)

  • MC in Scorpio (Chi square 14.0)

  • Saturn trine the Part of Fortune (orb 1°) (Chi square 13.0)

  • Jupiter trine the MC (orb 1°) (Chi square 12.0)

  • Venus square Uranus (orb 3)) (Chi square 12.0)

  • SO/VE = Vesta (the Asteroid Vesta in the midpoint between the Sun and Venus) (45° dial or 8th Harmonic; orb 1°) (Chi square 12.0)

  • we never counted the Moon semi-square the IC (orb 3°) denoting that IF this aspect is found in a solar return chart, it's unlikely this will be a marriage year.

  • we never counted Pluto conjunct the Ascendant (orb 1°) denoting that IF this aspect is found in a solar return chart, it's unlikely this will be a marriage year.

  • we never counted the Sun sextile the Asteroid Juno (orb 3°) denoting that IF this aspect is found in a solar return chart, it's unlikely this will be a marriage year.

  • Mercury square the Asteroid Juno (orb 3°) (Chi square 8.0)

  • the ruler of the 9th house retrograde (Chi square 7.0)

  • the ruler of the Ascendant retrograde (Chi square 7.0)

  • the ruler of the 5th house in the sign of its exaltation (Chi square 7.0)

  • the Sun conjunct Jupiter (orb 3°) (Chi square 7.0)

  • the Sun opposite Pluto (orb 3°) (Chi square 7.0)

  • Jupiter and/or Venus intercepted (Chi square 6.0)

  • Pluto in a cardinal house (houses 1, 4, 7 or 10) (Chi square 4.0)

  • the ruler of the Ascendant in Virgo (Chi square 4.0)

  • Venus in a mutable sign (Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius or Pisces), especially in Pisces.

  • Jupiter culminates (is the highest planet in the Solar Return)

  • Neptune is in the 2nd Quadrant (houses 4, 5 or 6)

  • Pluto parallel or anti-parallel the Ascendant or the MC

  • Venus in the Midpoint of MC/Vertex (8th Harmonic; 45° Dial; 1° orb)

  • Venus in a mutable sign and the Moon in any aspect to Uranus

  • Ruler of the 9th house stationary (Chi square 9.0)

  • Ruler of the Ascendant in any aspect (0°, 30°, 45°, 60°, 90°, 120°, 135°, 150°, 180° -- orb 1°) with the (modern) ruler of the 7th house (Chi square 13.4).

Taking into account the TNP's (Trans-Neptunian Planets) and midpoints we found some very significant signatures when we compared a first sample of 163 solar return charts with another group of 680 (!) solar return charts for the years of childbirth.

In at least five solar return charts of the 163 charts calculated for the marriage years of men and women, we found the following combinations (= astrological signatures) that could NOT be found IN ANY of the 680 solar return charts calculated for childbirth years:

  • Mars in the Venus/Kronos midpoint (8th Harmonic or 45° dial; orb 1°) AND Vulcanus in the Mars/Jupiter midpoint (12th Harmonic or 30° dial; orb 1°)

  • Juno in the Pallas/Mean Moon's Node midpoint (8th Harmonic or 45° dial; orb 1°) AND Jupiter in the Juno/Kronos midpoint (12th Harmonic or 30° dial; orb 1°)

  • the Moon in the Mars/Kronos midpoint (12th Harmonic or 30° dial; orb 1°) AND Mars in the Moon/Kronos midpoint (12th Harmonic or 30° dial; orb 1°)

The table below will make it more clear:

Astrological signature # found in 163 solar returns of marriage # found in 680 solar returns of childbirth
Mars in the Venus/Kronos midpoint (8th Harmonic or 45° dial; orb 1°) AND Vulcanus in the Mars/Jupiter midpoint (12th Harmonic or 30° dial; orb 1°)
5
nihil
Juno in the Pallas/Mean Moon's Node midpoint (8th Harmonic or 45° dial; orb 1°) AND Jupiter in the Juno/Kronos midpoint (12th Harmonic or 30° dial; orb 1°)
6
nihil
the Moon in the Mars/Kronos midpoint (12th Harmonic or 30° dial; orb 1°) AND Mars in the Moon/Kronos midpoint (12th Harmonic or 30° dial; orb 1°)
5
nihil

Clearly, these astrological signatures, found in the solar return charts of both males and females, seem to point to marriage!

Your Marriage Year in the Progressed charts

Irrespective of the gender, we also analyzed the progressed charts of men and women for their date of marriage.

This way, we are able to answer the question when to marry in reality.

During our research, we were struck by the importance of the "Arabic Parts."

Some Arabic Parts that is.

We found the following Arabic Parts most important:

  • the Part of Marriage: the Ascendant + the 7th house cusp - Venus (for Day and Night charts)

  • the Part of Self (abbreviated as P1): the Ascendant + the 1st house cusp - the ruler of the 1st house (for Day and Night charts)

  • the Part of The Other (abbreviated as P7): the Ascendant + the 7th house cusp - the ruler of the 7th house (for Day and Night charts)

We took the modern rulers into account (for example, Uranus rules Aquarius).

What did we find? A marriage takes place during the following progressions (one day for a year with the solar arc in RA):

  • the progressed P1 EXACTLY conjunct or opposite the natal Part of Marriage (orb 0° 00')

  • the progressed P1 EXACTLY conjunct or opposite the progressed Part of Marriage (orb 0° 00')

  • the ruler of the natal Ascendant EXACTLY conjunct the progressed Part of Marriage (orb 0° 00')

  • the progressed P1 EXACTLY conjunct the progressed Sun/Moon midpoint (orb 0° 00')

  • the progressed P7 EXACTLY conjunct the progressed Part of Marriage (orb 0° 00')

  • the progressed Ascendant EXACTLY conjunct natal P7 (orb 0° 00')

  • the progressed P1 EXACTLY conjunct the progressed ruler of the 7th house (orb 0° 00')

  • the progressed P7 EXACTLY conjunct the natal AS/MC midpoint (orb 0° 00').

    The progressed AS/MC midpoint EXACTLY conjunct the progressed ruler of the 7th house (orb 0° 00').

    The progressed AS/MC midpoint EXACTLY conjunct or opposite the progressed Part of Marriage (orb 0° 00').

    The progressed P1 EXACTLY conjunct the natal AS/MC midpoint (orb 0° 00')
    . This one came out in many occasions!

  • the progressed Ascendant EXACTLY conjunct or opposite the natal Part of Marriage (orb 0° 00')

ALL the above listed aspects have to be EXACT (so, a correct time of birth is mandatory).

Also, in male charts, we have found a man to marry when the progressed Ascendant trines his natal Moon.

In many instances men also seem to marry when the (direct or converse) progressed Sun and (direct or converse) progressed Venus are exactly conjunct.

In a female chart, we have found women to marry when her progressed Ascendant is opposite her progressed Moon.

In many instances women also seem to marry when the (direct or converse) progressed Sun and (direct or converse) progressed Mars are conjunct or build an exact aspect.

To be continued for sure.

Your Marriage Year in the Tertiary Directions I

After reading about the Tertiary Directions, discovered by the German astrologer E. H. Troinski, the Danish astrologer, Sven Frederik Fischer Svensson, wanted to know if this method could accurately predict one's marriage.

He made a lifetime investigation to find out scientiffically that beyond a doubt the Tertiary Directions I were accurate indeed.

He found that the Sun-Venus conjunction with an orb of 11° in the Tertiary Directions I (using the mean solar day after birth) proves to be a significant indicator for a marriage.

The applicative (applying) conjunction is the most powerful.

The Sun-Venus conjunction is found more often in a male nativity during the year of marriage though.

For females, aside from the Sun-Venus conjunction, you must also pay attention to a close Sun-Mars conjunction.

In our opinion, you should also take into account the converse directions.

It's found that converse directions and progressions seem to work more openly.

Alphee Lavoie, astrologer and Director of the Research Department of the N.C.G.R. (National Council of Geocosmic Research) uses both the direct and converse Tertiary Directions to forecast events accurately to the day.
