In this article we will discuss some important natal midpoints in love related matters (marriage, childbirth, sex etc.) with their core meaning.
We will also show how to use the midpoints with some natal chart examples of celebrities.
In love related matters, the following midpoints often are aspected (in the 45° dial/wheel or 8th harmonic within a 1° orb) by other personal points, bodies and planets (the Ascendant, MC, the Sun, Mercury, Venus, Mars, the Moon's Node).
Mind though that the keywords we list are NOT limitative.
The keyword is just one single, but important, meaning of the planetary combination and is a great way for novices to learn about the working of midpoints.
So far the meaning of the natal midpoints in love related matters.
Jupiter expands and broadens. It brings some favors.
When we find Saturn in the picture or planetary combination, it always brings limits and/or separation and loneliness.
However, note that childbirth is always a "happy separation" and you may often find Saturn prominent in some midpoint combinations.
The same is true for a change of residence or a move (which is actually a separation from the environment or place!).
So, don't always think the worst when you find Saturn in a planetary picture or midpoint!
Uranus is related to the unexpected and sudden turn of events. It's the awakener.
Neptune sucks, dissolves and makes things invisible (more spiritual or platonic).
Pluto brings power and force.
Remember that the most exact midpoint combinations and planetary pictures (orb 0°00' - 0°01') work out prominently, powerfully and will manifest during your whole life.
We once more remind you that all the below mentioned examples and principles relate to the 45° dial/list or 8th Harmonic.
Now let's take a look at some examples to find out how it all works in practice.
We analyze some random natal charts to find out about the love life of the native by analyzing the natal midpoints in love related matters.
In a female horoscope of a client we find the following exact midpoints (orb 0°00'!): MO = SA/KN = SO/NE.
When analyzing these midpoints or planetary pictures, you have to look up all the single midpoint combos and then blend the single delineations together into one.
In other words, you have to look up MO=SA/KN and MO=SO/NE separately first and then blend their meanings.
Let's analyze this for a moment:
MO: the woman, emotional feelings
= SA/KN: separated, disconnected, limited in connecting, alone or lonely.
The MO=SA/KN relates to a separated or single woman, someone who is emotionally living a detached life with the environment.
= SO/NE: a sensitive body, a spiritual person, the invisible or absent man.
The MO=SO/NE midpoint then relates to a longing for an unknown man, living a spiritual life...
Because the midpoints are exact, this midpoint combo overpowers her life completely.
She has never been married, almost no friends either.
No children either...
In the natal chart of Bo Derek, born on November 20, 1956 at 14:13 PST in Long Beach (California, USA) (Source The AstroDatabank), we find the following midpoints (planetary picture): JU=VE/PL=VE/KN=SO/VE.
This picture denotes:
JU: success, happiness or something fortunate
= VE/PL: powerful love, compulsive love desires
= VE/KN: a happy union, a fortunate bond
= SO/VE: a beautiful body, a loving person
This is a midpoint combination or planetary picture of a very happy woman.
No wonder she was happily married to John Derek for over 20 years.
In the natal chart of Arnold Schwarzenegger, born on July 30, 1947 at 04:10 am in Graz (Austria) we find the following planetary picture or midpint combination: MC=UR=SO/PL=KN/AS=SO/SA=ME/KN.
Let's delineate this one without making it too complicated (because, actually, you have to bundle every single factor and midpoint separately and then bring the together like UR=KN/AS and MC=KN/AS and UR=ME/KN and MC=ME/KN etc. and then blend it all to get the bigger picture):
MC: 'I am'
= UR: a reformer, sudden changes, reversals, upsetting situations
= SO/PL: a powerful man, a self-made man, the developing body
= KN/AS: connected with the environment and the ones that can be met there
= SO/SA: the ambitious man, the lonesome man, personal hindrances
= ME/KN: threads of communications, connected with letters or documents or talks (anything related to communication).
This planetary picture describes him in many ways, in his personal life as well as in his jobs and career.
He's a builder (because of the SO/PL AND SO/SA midpoint combo) who's predestined to experience reversals (because of Uranus in this picture!).
Also notice that SO/PL and SO/SA represent the body-builder: the Sun represents the physical body and Saturn (SA) and Pluto (PL) together represent "the builder."
You see how the pieces of the puzzle come together?
