Free Astrology Chart Reading: “Will We Be in a Relationship?”
July 19, 2008 by Nina Gryphon
John and I dated 3 years ago. He was newly divorced. We had two dates and we are just friends. There was a very big physical attraction, but only kissing and hugging on the 2nd date. He then didn’t ask me out anymore, but I ride his bus since he is a bus driver. He has a son who lives with him in his early 20s. He is a problem because of drug and alcohol addiction. What is he going to do about his son? I’m worried about John’s health because he is a heart attack survivor. Will John and I ever get together?
Your question is interesting, and makes me wonder why you are asking about the potential relationship now, three years after the date. I cast a horoscope for the time that I understood your question, and the chart for your question is below:
The chart shows that John’s son very much dominates the situation; his son is symbolized by Mercury, ruler of John’s fifth house of children, and we see that the planet symbolizing John, Saturn, is very much in Mercury’s power. The son controls the situation, and it does not bode terribly well for you. Mercury has just left its own sign and entered the sign of Cancer, where it has little essential dignity. This tells me that the son’ s behavior has become a greater problem, and this is now seriously impacting John’s life. Mercury is in the detriment of Saturn, so we have the son harming the father.
I am concerned about John as well, as we have Mars separating from Saturn. This can indicate a fling in John’s life, but it could also be illness, especially if his health has not been very good recently. In this context, it could be a very recent acute health situation that is only now starting to go away. We have Mercury applying to Saturn, and then Mars, making me think that the son is really having a negative health impact on John. Stress with his child could cause John to have some kind of relapse.
Regarding your relationship with John, I don’t really see the level of mutual interest needed to overcome these opposing external factors. None of your three planets, Venus, the Sun, or the Moon, are particularly interested in Saturn, which is the planet symbolizing John. Similarly, John only has moderate interest in you, and ultimately, I don’t think he’s that attracted to you. His planet, Saturn, is in the fall of Venus, which does not make for a long-term, happy relationship.
The Moon has just separated from a sextile with Saturn, and is applying to Mars. I’m not exactly sure what Mars is, so I cannot interpret this unequivocally. However, if we have your planet and his separating, itprobably does not bode well for the future of your relationship. My sense is that John has much bigger problems than wanting to be in a relationship, and as of late, his son and his health have been only conspiring against him having a meaningful or long-term relationship.
