Horary Astrology Question:

I divorced my husband in 1999 after 28 years of marriage. My oldest son was married at the time and only wanted my happiness. My youngest son was 18 at the time and remained living with my ex. After a year of dealing with increasing hostility from my son, I moved to California to live.

It has been six years since I have seen my youngest son and he has called me only when he needed money to solve a problem that he got himself into. After the last 2 years, he has now written me again for help. I don’t want to give him any money without responsibility and am waiting until I can have a real conversation with him. But I do want him back in my life in a real relationship. Will that ever happen & when?

—E.

Nina Gryphon:

Dear E.,

It seems to me that your younger son wants to have his cake and eat it too; he wants your money, but he also wants the moral high ground on the divorce. He cannot have both, regardless of how unjustified he thinks your divorce was. I cast a horary chart to get a sense of when a reconciliation may happen. The horoscope is below:

We can see that the situation is bothering you a great deal, and that you do love your son very much. Of course you do; he is your son! The ruler of your first house of self is Saturn, which is in the sign and exaltation of Mercury. Mercury rules the fifth house of children, and so it shows your son. Saturn is in the eighth house of fear, which indicates your anguish over the situation. [Frequent readers of this advice column will notice that in a disproportionate number of charts, the person’s planet is in the eighth house, showing that they are anxious or fearful about the issue.]

It may be that you do not have all the facts in the situation, or are simply blinded by the powerful emotions at work. This is shown by the fact that your co-significator, the Moon, is combust and moving deeper into a conjunction with the Sun. In either case, it would be most helpful for you to gather more information, both from third parties, and in talking to your son. You might learn more about the reasons for his hostility that you previously thought.

How does your son feel? He seems to have an exaggerated anger toward you; as evidenced by the fact that Mercury is in the fall of the Moon. In order for reconciliation to happen, Mercury will have to be out of Scorpio, to exit this bad reception with the Moon. Mercury is now grinding to a halt, as it will turn retrograde in a couple of days, and during this time, there will be two contacts with Saturn, indicating that you will be in touch with him more often in the not too distant future.

Venus will aspect Saturn (you), then Mars, then Mercury (your son). There may be an attempt to reconcile, perhaps by the means of a third party, but something may get in the way. Mercury itself will form a sextile aspect to Saturn, so I would expect another try at reconciliation in four or five months, maybe a little bit later than that. However, I don’t think that the two of you will really patch it up until the second half of 2008, which is symbolized by Mercury moving back into Libra, where it exalts Saturn. Regardless of the exact timing, I do believe that the two of you will eventually reconcile, and have a positive relationship, due to Mercury retrograding into Libra.
