Horary Astrology  – “Will We Marry and Be Happy?”

Horary Astrology Question:

I live in Orlando, Florida. He lives in Australia. We’ve been emailing for two years and he plans to fly to the States so we can meet. There are mutually strong feelings freely confessed. And it’s lasted a year with romantic feelings; 2 years as great friends online. I know he’s sincere. He knows I am, too. Neither of us is a player. I’m 8 years older. My gut says he’s the one. What do you see? When we meet we’ll have to know from that because it’s not a trip easily afforded to have many occasions to determine the possibilities.


Nina Gryphon:

Dear A.,

Thank you for writing to me. I cast a horary chart for the time of your question:

Horary Astrology  – “Will We Marry and Be Happy?”

First, let’s take a look at what is going on with him. He is ruled by your seventh house of partners, and its ruler, Mars in Gemini. His co-ruler, the Sun, represents his urge to marry or his level of physical attraction to you. With Mars in your second house, he is primarily interested in your high opinion of him. This is not quite the same thing as him being head over heels in love with you, but he obviously does care how you feel about him.

The Sun is a little bit more problematic here; because it is in Virgo, it is in the fall of Venus, your main significator. Could it be that you’re not quite getting the sheer animal attraction from him that would be appropriate at this stage in a relationship? Or perhaps he has just not expressed an interest in a long-term committed relationship?

The interesting thing is that both of his planets are in strong dignities of Mercury, which rules the second and sixth houses in the horoscope (his eighth and 12th houses). Without knowing more about your relationship, I wouldn’t gamble on what these houses represent. There may be a possibility he is interested in your money, but as I mentioned above, very often this can just mean that he is interested in your approval or high opinion of him. Both of these are ruled by your second house.

I don’t like the fact that the Sun is in the turned 12th house of secrets. This doesn’t mean that he has some kind of scandalous secret life or anything, but it’s not a placement but I like to see in relationship questions, as I believe that everything should be out in the open.

You are definitely attracted to him, and are certainly hot to trot as far as marriage goes. This is because your first house ruler, Venus, is in the sign of the Sun, and the Sun rules him as animal Man, and also it rules the Arabian Part of Marriage at 9° Leo. I am a little bit puzzled by the placement of the Moon, which seems to indicate some kind of sadness. The Moon is conjunct Vindemiatrix, which represents sorrow or separation. The Moon is also in the fall of the Sun (him as animal Man and marriage), and the detriment of Mars, his main significator. Has there been some kind of problem with him recently? It’s like your head wants one thing and your heart another.

Since you’re asking about marriage, I would want to see an applying aspect between your planets and his. The only applying aspect is the upcoming opposition between the antiscion of the Sun at 9.59° Aries and the Moon at 8° Libra. Oppositions represent breakups or regret, which would tell us that this romance may not lead to marriage. Again, the fact that this is happening in his 12th house, makes me wonder if you have all the information in this situation.
