CosmiTec's Love Letter, Issue #088 -- The Quadrant of the Partner
March 21, 2012

We are looking for anyone who is able to translate some short English texts and sentences regarding our services into ITALIAN. For more information and to read about our conditions, see below.

Today March 21 is International Astrology Day! It is held on the theoretical spring equinox, the day the Sun enters Aries, which is the first sign of the Tropical Zodiac, and has long been considered the astrological new year.

It's the day of the theoretical ingress because in reality, the Sun entered Aries on March 20 already this year (the ingress differs from year to year).

In some countries, astrological organizations will keep astrological lectures, workshops, seminars and other activities.

It's funny that you can even find greeting cards for this event (as if it were New Year or Xmas), meaning that this day is gaining recognition worldwide...

Perhaps it will once become a Holiday! LOL ;-)

Love Forecasts for April 2012

With three planetary stations and Venus going out of bounds (till June), this month of April 2012 promises to become an eventful one with the following key dates to keep an eye on: April 4, April 10, April 17 and April 25. In general, most planetary activity relates to financial issues.

Venus enters airy Gemini around April 3. You will enjoy lots of small trips and may encounter new people in your neighborhood or visit/meet your siblings.

Venus in Gemini becomes charming and wants to keep moving. The need and opportunity to attend social activities are the result of this.

Mercury stations and turns direct again at 23° Pisces around April 4. This station is not an auspicious one.

First, Mercury is still in the sign of its detriment and thus still very confused. It cannot see clear and communicating is now a big challenge. In fact, reasoning Mercury gets lost in the endless sea of emotions during the station.

Second, 23° Pisces is not an auspicious degree at all. It's one of the most powerful degrees representing sadness and sorrow.

As long as Mercury remains at this degree (till April 7), something will bring an unhappy feeling.

If you are born between April 3 and April 7, Mercury's stationary position at 23° Pisces will mark your whole (solar return) year (counting from birthday to birthday), resulting in sadness and sorrow to bear in the fields related to its house rulership and house position in the solar return chart.

If you are born around January 7, February 20, April 5, May 21, July 7, August 23, October 9 or November 23, there will be stress and tension in your love life around April 4-5. There may be separation from a beloved one (in the widest sense).

Venus at 2° Gemini squares Neptune at 2° Pisces around the Full Moon of April 6. Neptune, very strong in its own sign, is the most powerful planet of the two in this aspect. Expect a financial decline and certainties to crumble (dissolve) under this aspect. A beloved one may leave your world.

If you are born around April 5-6, the influences will be felt during your whole (solar return) year (counting from birthday to birthday). Beware of a financial decline.

If you are born around January 9, February 22, April 7, May 24, July 10, August 26, October 11 or November 25 there is a lot of hard work to accomplish around April 7-8.

Around April 8, Venus at 3° Gemini squares Mars at 3° Virgo resulting in disputes over love vs. work.

On the one hand, you feel obliged to give the best of yourself at the working floor while on the other hand, you need to take some time to relax or give attention to your lover too.

Actually, between April 4 and April 7, Venus will be the apex planet of a T-square in which Mars and Neptune are opposite. For some of you, this T-square may point to health issues, while for others it may indicate infidelity (or a secret affair).

Also, the Mars-Neptune opposition is called the 'axis of denial and rejection.' Venus, planet of love in between Mars and Neptune may thus bring rejection in matters of love.

Around April 10, Pluto stations and is about to turn retrograde at 9° Capricorn. This heavy station will mark April for the most part and is related to bankruptcy, stock market crashes, financial decline etc.

We expect to see the corporate and banking world to go through another round of turmoil during the station. In its backward motion, Pluto will again review past actions and force governments, the corporate and banking world to revamp and go ahead with a total metamorphosis. Retrograde Pluto will delve deeper and deeper and get out all the garbage!

Venus at 7° Gemini opposes the Moon's North Node around April 12 resulting in family visits or encounters with friends from the past.

The third station this month happens around April 14 when Mars at 3° Virgo makes ready to move forward again. Fiery Mars will become more extravert now and chances are it will show impulsive and rash behavior resulting in more violence and anger. It would be wise to think first before acting!

Around April 15, the Sun at 26° Aries opposes Saturn at 26° Libra. There is separation (often from an authority figure) and you cannot unfold properly. You feel inhibited and cannot express your creative drives. You hesitate and fear losses.

Don't try to push yourself through now because you will encounter tons of resistance.

If you are born around January 17, April 16, July 18 or October 19 this may especially apply to you. For some of you, a change of residence during this period may result in more stress.

Mercury enters Aries around April 17 and becomes more focused and extravert after its sojourn in silent Pisces. Mercury wants to talk out but it will still take time (till April 24 when Mercury will reach 6° Aries -- its previous stationary position) before Mercury, the messenger, may open up completely.

The Sun enters material and physical Taurus around April 19 resulting in more stability and interest in money and possessions.

Between April 18-21, you will enjoy fortunate developments in your own (love) life if you are born around January 19, March 3, April 18, June 3, July 20, September 5, October 21 or December 5.

If you are born around April 18, the auspicious influences will be felt throughout your whole (solar return) year (counting from birthday to birthday).

Around April 22, Mercury and Uranus meet at 6° Aries resulting in breaking news. Mercury is now at the position it stationed around March 12 and it will now be able to express itself more openly.

You can tell in freedom what was on your mind during Mercury's past retrograde movement.

Around April 25, Mercury at 9° Aries squares stationing Pluto at 9° Capricorn. There is annoyance and too much tunnel vision. Your brain and thoughts are turning circles... Get rid of negative thinking!

If you are born around January 6, April 5, July 7 or October 9, chances are you may have to travel for work or will be obliged to make a small trip around April 30.

The Quadrant of the Partner

There are different ways to divide a horoscope wheel, the house division in 12 parts being the most common one.

Another way to divide the horoscope wheel makes use of the angles (Ascendant-Descendant axis and the MC-IC axis). This way, the horoscope wheel is divided into 4 parts; the houses 1, 2 and 3 build the 1st part (Quadrant), the houses 4, 5 and 6 represent the 2nd part (Quadrant), the houses 7, 8 and 9 contain the 3rd part (Quadrant) and the houses 10, 11 and 12 contain the 4th part (Quadrant).

The 4 parts (Quadrants) are very important tools to analyze the different and major life domains of the native.

  • The 1st Quadrant (houses 1, 2 and 3) tell something about the personal life of the native
  • the 2nd Quadrant (houses 4, 5 and 6) tell something about the family life of the native
  • the 3rd Quadrant (houses 7, 8 and 9) telle something about the social life of the native
  • the 4th Quadrant (houses 10, 11 and 12) tell something about the life in the community of the native
We now want to take a closer look at the 3rd Quadrant which tells us about the social life of the native. The 3rd Quadrant is opposite the 1st Quadrant (representing the personal life) and thus reflects external influences and everything that we can encounter and meet (in the widest sense going from people walking in the street to a book on a desk).

It's the Quadrant of encounters that tells us who and what we will encounter. Obviously, the encounter with Mr. or Ms. Right is just part of it.

If we analyze this 3rd Quadrant we notice it contains the 7th, 8th and 9th houses.
  • the 7th house is the house of socializing as such, walking, showing oneself, greeting and (sometimes) talking to the outer world. As a cardinal house, you don't feel a bond and are just on your own self in the midst of your environment.
  • the 8th house is associated with the fixed water sign Scorpio and becomes emotionally involved (and attached). Encounters evolve into become deeper involvements and become closer.
  • the 9th house is a mutable house that, like all mutable houses, spreads out and becomes more visible and public. The emotional bond gets public.
This counter-clockwise evolution clearly shows why the 3rd Quadrant is also called the 'Quadrant of the partner' because it describes all the stages a love union goes through from the encounter till the 'marriage' (which is nothing less than a formal moment in which the love union/tie is shared with and made public to the outer world).

Interestingly, this 3rd Quadrant can tell lots about the partner and your relationships with the significant other(s), especially if you take into account the planetary containments.

The most important planets or bodies to delineate are the ones that are closest to both the Descendant and the MC.

These planets or bodies contain the 3rd Quadrant and describe the essence of the partner and your relationships.

Unfortunately, not all natal charts have a planet or body around the Descendant and the MC so that this rule or method not always applies.

That's why we too cannot give the delineations for all the possible planetary combinations yet. Therefore we would need lots more accurate birth dates with very detailed biographies to find out how the combinations work out in reality rather than trying to find out how it could or should work by reasoning about them.

However, if you find such planets or bodies around the Descendant and MC, combining the core meanings can be very telling.

Indeed, in case the 3rd Quadrant is contained between two planets or bodies, you can know a lot about the partner(s) and relationships by delineating both planetary principles in their essence together.

Don't forget that this method (like any other method) should never be used alone and you have to blend it with other methods to confirm your findings.

Example 1:
If the Sun is around the MC and Saturn is around the Descendant, the following keywords may aply to the partner: (s)he may be childless, a governmental worker, a problem-solver, having a tough job, feel lonely, live a detached life etc...

Example 2:
If Venus and Saturn are around the Descendant and MC, chances are there will be a (huge) age difference with the partner(s).

Example 3:
If the Moon and Uranus are around the MC and Descendant (like in the natal charts of Kris Kristofferson, Kathy Bates, Anoul Aimee, Nastassja Kinski etc.) this may indicate a relationship with (a) foreigner(s) and a domestic unstable life resulting in multiple marriages.
