CosmiTec's Love Letter, Issue #164 -- Defining the Partner in the Natal Chart (Revisited)
July 21, 2018

Mars at its closest approach to planet Earth causes lots of drought and heatwaves.

Mars will be at its closest peak to the Earth in the last week of July and the first week of August before it will very slowly start to distance itself again thereafter.

Forget about global warming though ;)

If you know a thing or two about astrometeorology, retrograde Mars is at its closest position (i.e. closer than close) to Earth every 15-17 years, which results in way more pronounced droughts and heatwaves here and there.

Look at 2003 or 1988 or 1971, among others...

And when you want to look ahead, take note of the years 2050 and 2082 too ;)

Remember that Mars, the so-called Red Planet, archetypally is dry and hot (and so is its temperament).

Weather(wo)men will never give credit to astrology and planetary cycles that are related to events on earth but if you just take the time and effort to learn and study astrometeorology and/or mundane astrology; nothing can beat "the proof of astrology."

So, actually, with the help of astrology there is nothing to worry about because you "know" that everything is cyclical, thus "predictable" and predetermined and in "good" hands (after all, the Universe is totally self-steering and in motion like a "perpetuum mobile" -- you can't interfere whether you like it or not).

So, perhaps, we better reconsider "free will" in some way as well... ;)

Love always

Love Forecasts for August 2018

(slowly hover over a paragraph with the mouse and wait a second for additional astrological information)

Click here to download the August 2018 calendar in pdf format.

In general and on a mundane level, events are likely to happen around August 2, August 8-9, August 14-15, August 21-22 and/or August 29.

Interestingly, during this month of August, there are no midpoint stations of outer planets going on.

Generally speaking, August 1, 17, 21, 22 and 29 are less "lucky" days.

Try not to initiate any major projects on these dark, unfortunate, chaotic and empty days (no proposals, no marriages, no changes of residence,...) because things may not go as planned or wished.

If you are born around January 21-22, February 20-21, March 22-23, April 22-23, May 23-24, June 23-24, July 25, August 25-26, September 25-26, October 25-26, November 24-25 or December 24, beware of a very sudden change of course between August 1-5.

There may be incidents, accidents, blockages, disturbing, disrupting and upsetting influences coming your way because of Mars at 2° Aquarius squaring (stationing) Uranus at 2° Taurus.

Uranus is the dispositor of Mars in Aquarius denoting that this turbulent square will be felt and may bring some physical injuries here and there too.

Around August 6-7 Venus enters its own sign Libra while the Sun at 14° Leo squares Jupiter at 14° Scorpio.

In its own sign Libra, Venus enjoys social events and gatherings.

You may encounter new people around these days and build brand new relationships and even partnerships.

Signing contracts may be another outcome.

The waning Sun-Jupiter square in fixed signs wants to "keep up appearances."

This aspect is above all about (self-)overestimation and ballooning behavior.

Around August 7 Uranus at 2° Taurus stations and turns retrograde.

Don't take sudden decisions just now even though the urge to create change is emphasized.

Stationing Uranus almost always brings some disruptions, breaking news about weird or peculiar events that are at times out of the ordinary indeed.

Retrograde Uranus can be as eccentric as it is in direct motion but because it's closer to the earth, it will tend to be less individualistic and more humanistic.

Usually, retrograde Uranus is interested in medicine and it's to be expected that some medical or scientific breakthroughs or discoveries are announced around its station.

The Sun and Mercury conjoin at 16° Leo around August 8-9, suggesting love talks or talks about children.

Around August 9-10 Venus at 3° Libra squares Saturn at 3° Capricorn denoting a lack of affection and/or increased financial concerns.

The atmosphere is clouded and you feel sad.

Some of you may mourn a beloved one.

Around August 11, Mercury at 14° Leo squares Jupiter at 14° Scorpio while a Solar Eclipse at 18° Leo builds up.

The Mercury-Jupiter square in fixed signs points to an obstinate "big mouth."

Bluff, tall stories and sweeping statements are not uncommon under this transit.

The Solar Eclipse at 18° Leo belongs to the 2 New North Saros Cycle.

According to researcher and astrologer Bernadette Brady, this Solar Eclipse is about a sudden collapse of plans or life-styles.

Confusion may reign and after the dust has settled, the rebuilding will have far-reaching effects.

The bottom line of this eclipse series is a change in your personal direction through the sudden collapse of an existing structure.

Know that an eclipse works out within six months so that its effect will not always be noticeable or visible instantly.

Around August 12-13 (retrograde) Mars re-enters Capricorn resulting in some crisis or emergency situation that will need the intervention of the armed forces around these days.

Expect some turbulent and disruptive days, full of changes of course.

Between August 16-19 hospital visits are possible and/or you may be separated from a beloved one.

If you are born around December 31 - January 1, February 14, March 31, May 16, July 2, August 18, October 3-4 or November 17-18, the current astrological configurations may especially affect your life.

The second half of August may bring particularly auspicious events or experiences and new perspectives.

There are fast going developments that will affect you most if you are born around January 22, March 8, April 22, June 8, July 25, September 10, October 26 or December 9.

Around August 19, Mercury stations and turns direct again at 11° Leo.

Geminis and Virgos (as well as Gemini and Virgo Ascendants) will be glad to find out their life is slowly on track again.

It will take till Mercury leaves its shadow period around September 2 before things get back to fully normal though.

But at least, taking decisions would not pose a problem and neither will signing contracts.

The Sun enters Virgo around August 23, time to think about the working environment.

Between August 25-29 you face stress, nervous tension ans some personal frustration is to be "feared."

You try to balance two sides but seem indifferent by more conservative people.

If you are born around January 22, February 21, March 23, April 22, May 23, June 23-24, July 25, August 25-26, September 25, October 25-26, November 24-25 or December 24, the current astrological configurations may especially apply to you.

On a mundane level, there is an increased chance of air traffic accidents, air crashes as well as other traffic issues.

Following astrometeorology, some heavy thunderstorms are possible too here and there.

During the August 26 Full Moon, Venus at 19° Libra squares Pluto at 19° Capricorn.

This waning square points to sacrifice in the name of "love", which also suggests playing a victim-role.

Any Venus-Pluto square points to intense relationships, insatiability, avarice, jealousy and/or messy love affairs.

Beauty regeneration or transformation like cosmetic surgery may be part of the current configuration.

Mars stations at 28° Capricorn and turns direct again around August 27.

Finally, due to this station Mars starts to slowly distance itself from the Earth again.

Your energy level is slowly increasing and you feel more and more prepared to tackle issues openly and actively.

Don't be too rash and impulsive though and try to control anger.

Due to the station at 28° Capricorn, love affairs my pop up as well and women should now be beware of an increased chance of rape and/or physical abuse.

Following astrometeorology, the heatwave and drought will slowly start to dissipate.Around the same days of August 27-28, Mercury at 16° Leo squares Jupiter at 16° Scorpio for the 2nd time this month.

Bluff, tall stories and sweeping statements are not uncommon under this transit.

Travel and traffic might be disrupted and some plans will have to be cancelled these late August days.

Defining the Partner in the Natal Chart (Revisited)

On different occasions we already wrote about finding about the partner in the natal chart.

The ruler of the 7th house and the conjunctions to the ruler of the 7th house as well as the planets in the 7th house describe the partner very well also.

In the female natal chart, planets conjunct the Sun also describe her partner.

This time we will focus on the zodiac sign opposite your Sun sign and the house opposite the one your Sun is in.

Your Sun sign reflects your personality and your Self.

The Sun represents your physical body too and thus the sign opposite you Sun sign, represents the meeting of or encountering the "bodies of others."

This makes sense because the zodiac sign opposite your own Sun sign represents "your opposites", all the ones that are outside of you and that you can encounter and meet face to face.

The 7th house meaning not only works when taking into account the houses in a horoscope but also when taking into accounts the zodiac signs.

The principle of the opposition aspect, opposite houses or opposite signs all have the same archetypal meaning; that of an encounter or a meeting, all that is external to one self, all that is outside of oneself and in one's field of view.

So, the first thing to check will be the zodiac sign opposite your Sun sign.

If you are a Leo, your partner will be described by the opposite sign Aquarius; if you are a Cancer, your partner will be described by the opposite sign Capricorn etc...

Additionally, the house overlays will add to the descriptions.

It pays to brainstorm a bit about all the real archetypal meanings of the zodiac signs to list all possibilities though.

For example, if you are an Aries, your partner will likely have Libra traits or characteristics meaning that (s)he might be a Libra or have a very good taste, interested in aesthetically pleasing goods with the need to live in a harmonious environment.

The partner can be a good diplomats too or a good mediator, etc..

If you are a Leo, your partner will likely have Aquarius traits or characteristics meaning that (s)he might be an Aquarius or love to live an independent life.

Perhaps, the partner has an interest in ICT, astrology, airplanes etc.

A humanitarian spirit and interest in our society may fit as well.

When you consider the house position of your Sun, you should also take into account the meaning of the opposite house because, remember, oppositions often represent your partner.

So, the natal house opposite the one holding your Sun, too describes your partner.

For example, if your Sun is in the 9th house, chances are your partner has 3rd house signatures or characteristics too, like being a Gemini, into trade, commerce or transportation and traffic or (s)he may be an intellectual (cerebral) etc.

If your Sun is in the 8th house, your partner may show 2nd house traits like being a Taurus or needing a stable and/or comfortable life etc.

If you are a Cancer, your partner will likely have Capricorn traits or characteristics meaning that (s)he might be a Capricorn or have very high expectations.

Climbing (literally or figuratively), construction work, being a superior, boss or leader all may fit in some way.

Also, everything that has to do with security and feeling more secure is apt etc.

To find out more specifically about your partner you will thus have to blend both principles: the zodiac sign opposite your Sun sign as well as the house opposite the one holding your Sun.

Combining or blending things are part of "the art of astrology" and can be very revealing in describing your partner, even though you will first have to brainstorm about the archetypal principles represented by the houses and zodiac signs separately.
