CosmiTec's Love Letter, Issue #021 -- The Love Degrees In Your Natal Chart
August 21, 2006

Many visitors requested an analysis of Angelina Jolie's love life. It seems she's the most popular celebrity for the moment and that's why we finally finished and published our analysis of her love life on our web site.

Also, our 2007 yearly love forecasts for the 12 zodiac signs are imminent. We hoped to get the predictions ready for inclusion in the web site's updates in this Love Letter but we are still proof-reading and checking the texts and links for errors. It is a huge task to make sure the delineations are right and everything works fine when online.

Very soon the forecasts will be launched, so expect to see the links in our next Love Letter.

If you are subscribed to our RSS feeds, you will receive the forecasts instantly when they are published online.

Many blessings!
Luc De Jaeger

Love Forecasts for September 2006

On September 1 the Sun conjuncts Mercury in Virgo while Mars opposes the Moon's North Node. There is more thinking than doing now, also more worrying over minor issues.

Chances are you will suddenly encounter a long forgotten friend the first week of September.

Also expect some sudden (and even shocking) news then.

One of the major issues in September is the station of Pluto on September 5 at 24° Sagittarius. Powerful Pluto turns direct and can bring quite some alien experiences then, the more so because the station happens so very close to the Lunar Eclipse of September 7 at 15° Pisces, a "critical" degree.

Stationing Pluto most often brings separations from the past. Pluto closes a door, terminates a cycle and starts all over. Very often this station brings some obsessive and compulsive drives to the foreground.

During the Pluto station the Sun will oppose disruptive Uranus and Venus will enter Virgo, the sign of servitude. If you are born around August 23-25, November 22-24, February 19-21 or May 21-23 this configuration may denote the separation of a beloved one.

September 7 brings us to the Lunar Eclipse in Pisces. The 15th degree Pisces is quite a chaotic degree, bringing much confusion, misunderstandings and a feeling and sense of helplessness. Events seem to happen without the possibility to intervene.

Mars enters socializing Libra around September 8. Mars is the warrior and does not feel well in Libra, the sign of love and peace, balance and harmony and the sign of its detriment. Mars in this position will have to learn how to make peace in relating with others, but it will be particularly difficult, the more so because Venus (Mars' dispositor) is in Virgo, the sign of its fall.

That's why September is not that good a month for marriages or agreements; there is yet too much fault finding to bring harmony and balance.

Around September 9 Mercury and Pluto build a square denoting that you have set your mind on something and that you will carry out your plans.

Mercury, the messenger and communicator, enters the air sign Libra around September 12 and brings a lot of talk and conversations culminating towards September 15 when Mercury conjoins Mars.

A flirt or short-lived encounter comes your way around September 12 when Venus opposes Uranus. Mind power-plays though, because the Sun squares Pluto too. It's very well possible that there is just unrequited love.

If you are born around April 4, July 6-7, October 8 or January 5, September 21 will bring some important and fortunate news for you, marking a groundbreaking development in your life.

September 22 brings us to the Solar Eclipse at 29° Virgo. According to the meaning of the 8 South Saros cycle, this Solar Eclipse signifies separation and loss. This Eclipse is said to be effective on a physical level and will last for about 6 months.

If you are born around this day or June 21, December 21 or March 20 the Eclipse will affect you directly but it will affect you indirectly too for the coming 6 months if you are born around the 21-23 in a month.

September 25-26 may bring obstructions into your love or family life. There is separation of a beloved one.

Expect a change for the better after September 30 when Venus enters its own sign Libra and will bring more harmony.

The Love Degrees In Your Natal Chart

We continue our series about the Love Degrees in the zodiac signs and will now discuss some degrees and degree areas that you will want to have in your own natal chart if you want to be happy in your love life.

Before listing these degrees, just take the following into account.

Every planet or point (Ascendant, MC,...) can be on any degree, but when talking about your love life, we will only refer to Venus or Jupiter on some specific degrees.

Because the outer planets (beyond Saturn) stay quite a long time on a single degree, they have no particular meaning for your personal life (except when taking the rulerships into account but for the sake of simplicity we will not go into that for now). The outer planets almost always bring collective issues into your life.

Why only talking about Venus and Jupiter?

Venus is the planet of relationships and love in a general way. This planet is often called "Fortuna Minor". When delineating one's love life, this planet is one of the first to consider.

Jupiter, when not afflicted, brings luck and happiness and is often referred to as "Fortuna Major". When posited on a love degree, chances are your love life will blossom. Jupiter here reinforces the positive meaning of the love degree.

Jupiter often brings money too and tends to bring money through (the) relationships when posited on a love degree.

Also notice that the below mentioned degrees bring happiness in your love life - on condition that NO other divorce related degrees are activated AND the planet on the love degree is not afflicted! Afflictions occur when Saturn squares the planet for example.

Indeed, it happens all too often that Venus is posited on a certain love degree and the Moon (for example) is on a degree of divorce and separation. Well now, in this case you will have to first take a look at the midpoint analysis to know what is going on and to find out what prevails.

Honestly, it's quite rare to find the love degrees activated without the intervention of some other (turbulent) degree(s). On planet earth, love is seldom a smooth ride!

The Love Degrees:

  • Venus or Jupiter at 12° Aries, Cancer or Libra
  • Jupiter at 13° Aries, Cancer or Libra
  • Venus or Jupiter between 29° Cancer - 1° Leo (and not afflicted)
  • Jupiter between 29° Libra and 1° Scorpio
  • Venus or the Moon at 3° Taurus or Leo
  • Jupiter at 15° Taurus or Scorpio
  • Venus or the Moon at 26° Taurus or Leo
  • Venus between 29° Scorpio - 1° Sagittarius
  • Jupiter at 16° Sagittarius or Pisces
  • Jupiter or Venus at 18° Sagittarius or Pisces

Again, don't panic if you don't find any of the listed degrees occupied by the according planets in your natal chart. This does not mean you will not have a happy love life! The above mentioned degrees are only one single piece of the giant puzzle.

Also, when you have specific midpoints in your chart that point to a happy marriage or love life, these midpoints must be considered too. The most exact midpoints (with an orb of 0°) always overpower other configurations in your chart.
