Marriage horoscopes are just one of the other inceptional charts that describe the potential of your marriage.
In fact, every (new) beginning, be it a new love, a new job, a move, a birth... can be judged by such inceptional horoscopes.
Just draw a chart for that very moment of beginning, and you'll be able to delineate the innate disposition, development and outcome, out of this moment as a self-developing story.
So, with the marriage charts, set up for the exact moment when the couple exchanges vows and is officially pronounced man and wife, we can see how the marriage will unfold and develop.
You may argue then, that carefully choosing the right moment for such an important event must be most recommended.
It is, BUT, experience shows us that what is not indicated in the birth chart, will not happen.
The Natal PromiseSo, if your birth chart shows marital problems, you may choose all possible (fortunate) marriage horoscopes, you just will have marital problems...
It's just part of your current life map and something that you will have to experience.
This kind of 'determinism' may seem hard to understand, but remember for now that this knowledge is grown out of experience and NOT out of reasoning...
Moreover, it's something that can better be explained metaphysically rather than astrologically.
Nevertheless, some rules may apply as to choosing the right or appropriate moment for a marriage.
The TimingAmong astrologers there is some doubt as to the exact moment the marriage is sealed.
Is it the moment of the vows, is it the official pronouncement of man and wife or is it the exchange of rings?
Resolving this question can only be done by looking at the deeper meaning of the ritual of a marriage.
We may ask you, when are you married? When do you feel that you are married, that you are man and wife?
We, at Cosmic Technologies (CosmiTec), are of opinion that you are man and wife, when YOU officially and personally are pronounced Man & Wife.....
So, this will be the moment to erect our marriage horoscopes.
That's why we will only use the time of the legal ceremony when you say have said YES to set up the marriage horoscopes.
Only then, you are officially married!
As marriage horoscopes are delineated as electional horoscopes, some rules are the same.
Often, astrologer think that they can choose a time when the planets indicate harmony and happiness for the marriage horoscopes, giving destiny a helping hand.
Alas.... there is NO guarantee that this time is the most propitious one.
Most couples plan a period (or year) within which they want to get married. But what if a year (or two or three or four,...) later there is a more auspicious period....
And what if the astrologer does not know about some invaluable (and lesser known) astrological techniques to find the most auspicious period?
We already touched this topic on this web site when we mentioned that some astrologers know more than others....
Astrologers should be VERY aware of the responsability they have when trying to choose a fortunate moment in time.
We just want to say it again: don't give your life out of hands. No one astrologer knows it all!
If you want to consult an astrologer to erect some marriage horoscopes, consult 2 or 3 other astrologers!
Together they know more and, in the end YOU too!
Astrological Rules For Choosing a Marriage HoroscopeWe will not give any details as to find the best time (hour), since you will almost never be able to pinpoint the pronouncement of man and wife to the minute... BE REALISTIC!
If there is some delay of any kind, are you going to postpone your marriage because the hour might be wrong? You must be silly!
And what if you have found that the best time is in the late afternoon, on a moment there even are no marriage ceremonies organized...
If you love somebody, go for LOVE, not for astrology!
If the day is fortunate, we just hope the hour will be too. And, between..., we hope your natal chart shows some marital bliss too...
Also understand that a marriage is never ever the ultimate goal in life, nor is it the ultimate purpose of life at all!
The ultimate purpose of life here on earth is self-development and relationships (in a wide sense) are just a tool or means to develop "your Self."
That's why your marriage should only be a means to develop your Self and experience what it means 'to be married.'
Now to the most comprehensible theoretical rules for choosing the most auspicious marriage horoscopes (there are numerous more, but we'll only mention the most important ones, not to overwhelm you with information).
The real Marriage Chart, calculated for the exact time of the marriage after the marriage took place, will be discussed in another article.
- Mind the position of the Moon!
Some astrologers advice to avoid New and Full Moons.
New Moons mostly have a hidden influence.
Things are not that clear and there may be a lack of foresight. Things have NOT developed enough to start, so a marriage on a New Moon is not advisable.
The Full Moon is more developed and visible to the public.
There is maximum visibility and because of the opposition between the luminaries, this Lunation has the quality of an encounter (the Moon in the 7th - equal - house counting from the Sun).
We, at Cosmic Technologies (CosmiTec) think that a Full Moon is a good day for a marriage because it signifies the culmination, the fulfillment of the love relationship and love-cycle.
So, in our opinion, marriage horoscopes may contain a Full Moon, especially when the Moon is still waxing.
A void of course Moon may not pose a problem if the Moon is not afflicted.
However, you should never propose or engage when the Moon is void of course! We refer to our dating page.
- Avoid (applying) squares or oppositions from the Moon to Mars, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune or Pluto.
These aspects are a burden, causing tragedies, disruptive events, separations etc. in the family.
- Avoid any planet in the same degree as the Moon's Node.
According to the fabulous astrologer Ivy M. Goldstein-Jacobson this planet points to a catastrophe, casualty, fatality or tragedy, the more far-reaching when a malefic (Mars or Saturn) is involved.
- Avoid retrograde personal planets (like Mercury or Venus) or Mars. Retrograde planets let you RE-do, RE-think the matter (the marriage too).
Retrograde planets may feel RE-stricted, RE-pulsed, RE-fused.
Retrograde planets almost always signify or represent persons in your life that are hiding, shy or ill (This is a HOT tip!).
But they can also RE-try and RE-evaluate.
We, at Cosmic Technologies, can confirm that retrograde planets may cause some irritations, trouble and delay.
You'll have to wait till the planet turns direct for a more fluent and 'direct' action.
- Try to avoid any planet in one of the following positions:
* the 19th degree Scorpio: Serpentis or the accursed degree bringing sorrow. Things are not as they seem.
* the 9th degree Libra: the position of the Fixed Star Vindemiatrix: the Star of Widowhood.
* the last degrees of the sign Taurus: the Head of Medusa, especially the 26th and the 29th degree.
The 26th degree is the position of Algol, the most evil Fixed Star, causing to lose your head.
The 29th degree Taurus is the position of the Weeping Sisters, causing something to weep about.
It may (will) bring sadness and endings!
We, at Cosmic Technologies, have found these degrees to be MOST important, so, indeed, don't neglect them - or better, DO avoid them in marriage horoscopes.
* the 23th degree Pisces, a degree of sorrow, sadness and unhappiness.
It's a very disturbing degree that you MUST avoid in the marriage horoscopes at all cost!
In our experience, this degree has brought lots of tearful events, aggression and fights. Don't make love a battlefield!
* try to avoid in the marriage horoscopes the day the Moon is in the Via Combusta (15° Libra - 15° Scorpio, except for the safe degrees of 22-24° Libra) because this brings misfortune and illness.
- avoid a marriage on the so-called "dies atri" or unlucky or ill-omened days.
These days are said to bring hard luck, trouble, chaotic experiences, delays, restrictions and/or disturbing events.
The dies atri are:
* January 2, 3, 4 and 18
* February 3, 6, 8 and 16
* March 13, 14, 15 and 29
* April 19
* May 3, 10, 22 and 25
* June 17 and 30
* July 19, 22 and 28
* August 1, 17, 21, 22 and 29
* September 21, 22, 23, 24, 25, 26, 27 and 28
* October 3, 6 and 11
* November 12
* (December has no dies atri)
- Mind the position of Venus, the planet of love, relationships and sociability because, in marriage horoscopes, this planet becomes more important!
- Look at the most exact midpoints with an orb of 0°00'-0°01'.
Exact midpoints are invaluable.
They are SUPER important because they absolutely OVERPOWER the aspects.
