Free Astrology Advice: Horary Astrology – Career, Love and Marriage, Oh My!

Career, Love and Marriage Horoscope


I would like to know about my love life in the future, mainly if I will marry and be happy, also if my ex-boyfriend will come back to me, or if the current man I am with is the one (I am 20 years old, by the way)? I want to explore near and far future, if that is possible. I would also like to know about my career path, what is going to happen with my career, what will I be, and how will I get started?


Nina Gryphon:

Dear T.,

Perhaps because I tend to be overly descriptive myself, I am in awe at the way in which you put so many important issues in such a short space. This would be an excellent place in which to let my readers know that if they want more specific information in their answers, they will need to include more specifics. That said, it’s amazing just how much blood we can squeeze from a stone, or rather how much information we can squeeze from such a short question. Typically, answers of as major import as you mention are best reserved for in-depth natal readings, which I also do off the blog for a fee. However, because this advice column is about horary astrology, I am sure that the readers will appreciate the way in which we can get to the important issues even without delving into the deep recesses of a person’s horoscope.

As always in this column, I used horary astrology to analyze your question. This is a very ancient method which uses the moment of the question to find an answer in the horoscope cast for the question. If you think about it, everything in the universe has a birth chart, no matter how great or small. Your question has a chart as well, and inside it is the answer. The horary chart for your question is below:

Career, Love and Marriage Horoscope

You gave multiple questions; this is fine, and I will take your questions in the order in which you have given them. In this horoscope, you are shown by Venus. Venus is not doing terribly well in this horoscope, or it should say it thinks it’s doing okay, but it really isn’t. Venus is in Virgo, which is the sign of its fall — Venus is also in its triplicity. So we have this interesting ambiguity, were planet is doing okay (triplicity), but the overall picture is relatively bleak (Venus is in fall). Venus is also in the 12th house, which it rules, because 12th house is the house of self undoing. Venus is a seductive planet, showing that we all have a tendency to very easily slip into self undoing and bad habits. So this gives us a picture as to what is going on with you, you’re probably not making very good decisions right now, but you feel pretty good about that. In other words, you are happily self undoing.

Marriage is definitely possible for you; since you’re 20 years old, the odds are going to be heavily tilted toward your marrying at least once during your lifetime. I don’t see any afflictions to the seventh house or its ruler that would be total deal breakers, so I can only assume that you will marry. The fact that Mars, the Lord of the seventh house, the house of partners, is in the first house itself, shows us that you’ll probably marry pretty easily, and the guide will come to you of his own accord. The Moon is also applying to Venus in Virgo, which is an overall good indication for marriage. I am not too thrilled to see this happening in the 12th house and also in Virgo, which is a barren sign, but I think this will speak more to the quality of the marriage.

Even if we look at the part of marriage, which is a point calculated using the degree of the ascendant, the ascendant, and the position of Venus, we see that it is at 18Ā° Aries in the seventh house, and the picture is not terribly positive. Its ruler is Mars in Libra in the first house. The fact that Mars is angular and in your own house shows that you will get married, likely within a few years and easily. However, I am not sure that the marriage will be of very good quality. Would you want your marriage to be symbolized by the God of war in the sign of his detriment? I should think not. Most likely, you’ll marry quickly, but the relationship will be far better at the beginning than later on. Depending on your cultural and religious views, this may mean that you will divorce.

I also wanted to know if your boyfriend will come back. I think there will be an opportunity for him to come back, but I don’t think anything will come of it. The Moon will translate light between Venus and the Sun, with the Sun being his male libido aspect, so there is some sense of mutual physical attraction here, but when the Moon conjoins the Sun, we are going to get a solar eclipse. This does not bode well for the relationship. So I do not think you’ll come back, but I do not think you have a whole lot to regret, given that his planet, the Sun is not in very good shape here. Yes, it will move into Libra, where it loves Venus (you!) soon, but there are no upcoming aspects to confirm your getting together.

I think your current guy is a better bet, if he is Mercury in Libra in the first house, as I suspect. You like him, he likes you (note the mutual reception by sign), and he seems much more desirable than the ex boyfriend. The Sun is just not doing too well, given that it’s about to be eclipsed. I’d rather have a Mercury in Libra, even though it doesn’t have a whole lot of dignity, but it’s just doing so much better than the Sun. Does this mean that your current boyfriend is Mr. Soulmate, who will love you forever and ever? Maybe. You could do a lot worse.

You also asked about your career, and wanted to know what you will be when you grow up. Whenever people ask about careers in horary questions, I always request that they give me a few options. There are just way too many jobs out there in the world, so we have to narrow it down. If your career is shown by the Moon in Virgo about to conjoin Venus (because Moon rules your 10th house of career), we have a few interesting possibilities. The 12th house is normally malefic, so this could just show that your career will not be a good one all have to do with the self undoing professions, which I will be if your imagination. However, the 12th house also rules prisons and large animals. So you could work as a corrections person, but given that your career is shown by the Moon, you’d be more likely to be a counselor in some institution of that sort. You might also work with animals, such as a vet or something. The fact that the Moon is with Venus, and in a Mercury sign gives us a sense that there is some analytical work as well as aesthetic work involved here. One possibility is that you are destined to be a designer of horse dress for racehorses. Obviously, I’m only joking, but if we do not have options to choose from, we have to use our imagination, and mine is extremely fertile.
