cupidsleeping Free Astrology Chart Reading: Will We Be in a Relationship?

Horary Question:

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?

—C.

Dear C.,

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:

johnandigettogether Free Astrology Chart Reading: Will We Be in a Relationship?

Free Astrology Chart Reading: "Will We Be Together?"

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.

Free Astrology Readings: Horary Astrology – “Will My Son & I Reconcile?”

October 10, 2007 by  

motherandchildindunes Free Astrology Readings: Horary Astrology  – “Will My Son & I Reconcile?”

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:

reconcilewithson Free Astrology Readings: Horary Astrology  – “Will My Son & I Reconcile?”

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.

Horary Astrology: Missing Child – Why Does Daughter Keep Running Away?”

September 6, 2007 by  

thebohemian Horary Astrology: Missing Child   Why Does Daughter Keep Running Away?”

Horary Question:

My close friend’s 13-1/2 yr old daughter has run away from home for the second time (1st time 8/2; “found” by police 8/19 hiding in a closet at a friend’s home & returned to mother that day; then she ran away again 8/24 and is still “missing”) and as happened during her first runaway attempt, is evidently living with individuals who have no problem “hiding” a minor child!

Missing child police reports, etc. have been filed by the mother. This child is also not attending school, so truancy is now an additional issue. She is for all intents and purposes 100% living “underground”. Of course the mother is beside herself. This child does not come from an abusive environment, lack for much in life, etc. Truly a sad, sad situation. What can you see happening in this situation? Will she return? Why are the police so lax in seemingly all they do with this case? What about the individuals who are certainly breaking the law by harboring a runaway minor child?

I will direct the mother to read this to (hopefully) provide some comfort to her in this very unfortunate situation.

—C.

Nina Gryphon:

Dear C.

As always, thank you for writing to me. What a strange situation; I would expect the girl to have told the mother her reason for running away. Since we have very little information, I will try to figure it out from the horoscope. I cast a horary chart for the time I understood your question:

missingchild Horary Astrology: Missing Child   Why Does Daughter Keep Running Away?”

Since the mother is a close friend of yours, we would give her the 11th house of friends, and its ruler, the Sun in Virgo. Her runaway child is shown by your friend’s 5th house of children, and its ruler, Mars in Gemini.

First, let’s take a look at when the missing child will return: the Sun will square Mars at 24 degrees of their respective signs, so it will be in 11 or 12 somethings. The applying planet (the Sun) is in a cadent house, so we would likely see this as days. There is the possibility we are looking at hours, but days seems more likely given how long the girl has been gone. So she will be back in just under two weeks. Will it be for good? I’m not convinced; with mutable signs dominating the chart, ther may be a bit more of this back and forth lifestyle.

Second, let’s try to figure out why she is running away. With Mars in the sign of Mercury and detriment of Jupiter, she either really likes what Mercury represents or hates whatever Jupiter represents. Mercury rules the missing child’s 11th house of friends, so this may be one reason she’s running away. Jupiter rules her 2nd, 4th, and 5th houses, so it could be she simply doesn’t like being at home, or potentially has some self-esteem issues (2nd house). But really, why not just ask her, and maybe get a therapist to talk to her?

Third, why are the police not doing anything? They don’t want to deal with it, especially after having already done their duty once. The police are represented by the 10th house of authority, and its ruler, Mercury. Mercury is in the fall of the Sun (the mom) and the detriment of Mars (the daughter); it’s not that they don’t care. Rather, they are intentionally not pursuing this. They certainly could do so; Mercury is powerfully placed in the first house. But they had already done so once, and don’t want to get involved again. Note how Mercury was recently in its own sign and exaltation, Virgo – in the recent past, the police were doing their policing, as they should have. But they are onto other things, and couldn’t be bothered, since there seems to be no danger to the child.

Fourth, why are these people harboring her? Without knowing her exact relationship to these people, it’s difficult to say. If they are just anybody to her (not friends, for example), we would take them to be shown by Venus in Leo. Since Mars has recently sextiled Venus, this is quite possible. If this is the case, the people with whom she is staying are not bad people. Venus is in its own term, which lends some amount of character to the people involved. Which leads me to believe that she has told them a compelling story – true or not – about why she has run away.

Horary Astrology: Free Astrology Readings – “When Will My Son Stop Using Drugs?”

July 23, 2007 by  

sickbacchus Horary Astrology: Free Astrology Readings – “When Will My Son Stop Using Drugs?”

Horary Astrology Question:

My son has been an on/off IV drug user since he was 18. He is presently 24. The guilt & devastation this has caused family is beyond words. Of course when he is using he cannot be trusted, has stolen my car, etc. When he is clean he is kind, caring & smart. He came from a “normal” middle class home, no abuse/addictions, and two happily married parents. We threw money at it initially, in our panic. Now we give unconditional love, and lots of our time. We see that this will be a lifetime commitment. Otherwise, my life is greatly blessed with a husband that adores me, a job I love, a happily married well adjusted daughter, and solid relationships.

—M.

Nina Gryphon:

Dear M.,

Thank you for writing to me. I am sorry to hear about your son, and can only imagine what you have been through. I cast a horary chart for the time that I understood your question, and the horoscope is below:

sonovercomedrugs Horary Astrology: Free Astrology Readings – “When Will My Son Stop Using Drugs?”

In this horoscope, your son is shown by Mars, ruler of your fifth house of children. Mars is not doing terribly well; it is in Taurus, the sign of its detriment. Clearly, your son is not in a good place. The question is whether this will ever change, and if so, when. The good news is that Mars is angular, just about to enter the seventh house. So the only person who can change the situation is your son. Does he want to?

I do not like the fact that Mars is in a fixed sign, showing a resistance to change. I also do not see a major motivation for him to do so. If he wanted to change, I would be inclined to look at Mars’s transition into the next sign, Gemini (where it is considerably stronger than in Taurus) as showing definite improvement in about 13 to 14 months. However, if, as I suspect, the motivation is not there, this timeline turns into 13 to 14 years.

Whatever the timeframe, about three quarters of the way through, he is going to experience some kind of negative wake-up call, which may well motivate him to make a serious change. This is shown by Mars applying to square Saturn. Saturn can just rule negative things in general, but here it rules your son’s 12th house of self undoing, which can include both drugs and jail. So there is a sense that he will hit rock bottom before things improve.

I wish the news had been better, but the motivation to change his life will have to come from within.

Free Astrology Advice: Horary Astrology – Is This a Good Time to Conceive?

June 25, 2007 by  

childrenboatstream Free Astrology Advice: Horary Astrology – Is This a Good Time to Conceive?

Horary Question:

Is now the right time to conceive? I have been with my husband for ten years (four years married). We are very compatible and feel now may be the right time. We’re both 28. I am finishing up college in December. I am torn between jumping head first into a career, buying a home or having a child! He says that now is right but has been against it until now, which doesn’t seem fair to me.

—P.

Nina Gryphon:

Dear P.,

Thank you for writing to me. I cast the horoscope for the moment that I understood your question, which is a method known as horary astrology. The horary chart for your question is below:

conceivenow Free Astrology Advice: Horary Astrology – Is This a Good Time to Conceive?

In this horoscope, you are represented by Jupiter, ruler of the first house of self, and also by the Moon. We will also need to take a look at your fifth house of fertility, which is ruled by Venus. We see that your and your husband’s biological clocks have been a major topic of contention recently; the Moon has just opposed Mars, which would indicate disagreements regarding your husband’s desire for children. Mars rules your husband’s fertility, as it rules his fifth house of kids.

I suspect that finances have a lot to do with your reservations about having children right now. We see that the fifth house ruler, Venus, is about to conjoin Saturn in barren Leo, and Saturn rules the second house of money. How is your money? With Saturn in detriment, not so great. So there is a strong argument for you going out and getting a job before committing to kids. We also see that Mars afflict the fifth house, and this is not just about Mars representing your husband’s fertility. Mars also rules your fourth house of home and real estate. So you recently realized your house is no longer satisfactory, which is another pressure on you. Again, if you’re going to have kids, it would make sense to have your new house set up first.

Given these two afflictions from Saturn (money) and Mars (housing and pressure from husband’s bio clock), I think your instincts are correct, and you should get your financial and housing situations straightened out before deciding to have kids.

Free Astrology Advice: Horary Astrology – When Will My Daughter Get a Job?

burgherofdelftanddaughter Free Astrology Advice: Horary Astrology – When Will My Daughter Get a Job?

Horary Question:

Will there be a job opportunity for my daughter soon? She is a single mother, has applied in numerous places but nothing has opened to her. I’m retired and have helped her to the limit of my fixed pension. She is determined to accept any job.

—H.

Nina Gryphon:

Dear H.,

Thanks for writing to me. I cast a horary chart for the moment I understood your question. The horoscope for the horary is below:

daughtergetjobsoon Free Astrology Advice: Horary Astrology – When Will My Daughter Get a Job?

Your daughter is shown by your fifth house of children, and its ruler, Venus in Leo. Venus is peregrine, without strength, in that part of the zodiac. This can indicate that a person is wandering, which is another meaning of peregrine; this is true – your daughter is wandering between jobs. Peregrine can also indicate that the person may not have the skills employers are seeking. Ideally, we would see your daughter’s significator strong, showing that she is qualified for the jobs she seeks. Still, there is no reason she shouldn’t get hired. It’s just that she is not a shoo-in.

Her next job is showed by the 10th house from the 5th, and its ruler, the Moon. Now, we see that the Moon is in Pisces, the exaltation of Venus (and in fact, it has just left the super-exaltation degree of Venus). I take this to mean that she will leave her pleasant but unemployed state soon, just like the Moon will shortly leave Pisces. The Moon will enter Aries, which is the detriment of Venus – she will find work, but she will not enjoy it.

When will this likely happen? Well, we have two possibilities: the Moon will enter Aries in about 3 degrees, and it will make its next aspect as a trine to Venus in 6 degrees. Since the Moon is in a mutable sign, it will go a little bit slower than normal. So we could say, between 4-6 weeks, two months on the outside.

Free Astrology Advice: Horary Astrology – Will I Ever Have Another Child?

May 31, 2007 by  

themother Free Astrology Advice: Horary Astrology – Will I Ever Have Another Child?

Horary Question:

I have had endometriosis for the past nine years. I have one son and I’ve lost four babies since 1998. The most recent loss was in February and since then I have had nothing but problems. I am in pain constantly and I am seriously considering a hysterectomy. I am only 29 and my fiancé has three children, two of which we have custody. I desperately want to have another child, but the pain is so bad that sometimes it just doesn’t seem worth it. Is that slim chance of me having another child worth all the pain I am going through? I want to have the surgery if it is going to be better for my health, but I am torn between my emotions and my body. Part of me is screaming to just have the surgery, but the other part of me is crying out for another child. Will I ever have another child?

—C.

Nina Gryphon:

Dear C.,

Thank you for writing to me. I know people with this difficult illness, and the attendant pain, suffering, and sometimes infertility is truly unfortunate. Since this is a semi-medical question, this would be a good time to mention that I am not a doctor, always listen to your doctor first, this is not medical advice, etc.

I cast a horary chart for the moment that I understood your question, and the drawing of that horoscope is below:

canhavechildorsurgery Free Astrology Advice: Horary Astrology – Will I Ever Have Another Child?

First, we note that the ruler of the first house of self is the Sun in Gemini, a barren sign. However, it is conjunct Aldebaran, a fixed star in the constellation Taurus. It is associated with a fresh start, so perhaps the meaning here is that you may be fertile, but unable to carry a child to term. But let us look at other indicators in the horoscope.

The fifth house, which rules your children and fertility, is governed by Jupiter, which is in Sagittarius, a sign that is neither fertile nor barren. Jupiter is in its own sign, which is positive, but it is retrograde, again repeating the same theme that your pregnancies would end prematurely. We also see that Jupiter is trine Mars and Saturn, so it is severely afflicted by these two malefic planets. Note that Saturn rules your seventh house, which signifies your reproductive system and pelvis, and it is very weak due to its location in Leo, the sign of its detriment. This is a reflection of the illness afflicting this part of your body.

It is important to note that the Moon in Sagittarius is just inside the fifth house of children, so it is going to be an important indicator of your fertility. It is Peregrine, so it has no essential strength, and it is quite afflicted by its upcoming opposition to the Sun. The Moon rules your 12th house of self undoing, and afflicts the ascendant by a trine aspect, indicating that your desire for child harms you (presumably because you are not getting surgery to stop the pain, and also to prevent the illness from getting worse).

Since your question is partly medical, I also would want to take a quick look at the prospective treatment (the hysterectomy), which is ruled by the 10th house. The 10th house is ruled by Mars, the natural ruler of surgery, so that is very appropriate. Mars is quite strong in Aries, where it exalts the Sun. So the proposed surgery looks rather helpful to you.

Unfortunately, the prospects for carrying a child to term are not very positive. You probably could conceive, but the problems indicated in the horoscope are quite serious, and I would hate for your health to deteriorate further if another child was lost. Note that even if the surgery did not prohibit the aspect between the Sun (you) and the child (Jupiter), the aspect between the Sun and Jupiter is an opposition, which indicates conception, but one that does not end well for you or the child.

Free Astrology Advice: Horary Astrology – Will We Have Another Baby?

ticklingbaby Free Astrology Advice: Horary Astrology – Will We Have Another Baby?

Horary Question:

My husband and I have two wonderful children. We are both 40. We both want another child but it doesn’t seem to be happening for us. We have had all testing done and the doctors can’t give us any reason as to why we are not getting pregnant. We did get pregnant 6 years ago; but sadly miscarried at 9 weeks. We are both in good health with the exception of myself having high cholesterol, which I do have under control with diet and exercise.

—M.

Nina Gryphon:

Dear M.,

I get many letters similar to yours; I never knew there were so many women in this world longing for a child. I really wish it were possible for every woman who wants a child to conceive. I cast a horoscope for your horary question, which is below:

fertilityastrologyhavebaby Free Astrology Advice: Horary Astrology – Will We Have Another Baby?

Since you are about 40, we will need to find an aspect between the planet showing you and the planet showing the baby. If the same question was asked by someone in their 20s, general indications of fertility in the horoscope would be sufficient. But as the odds drop over time, we need stronger and stronger evidence to show conception.

You are represented by the Moon, ruler of the first house of self, and the baby/your fertility potential is indicated by ruler of the fifth house of children. Your husband is represented by her seventh house of partners, and its ruler, Saturn, and his ability to conceive is indicated by Venus, ruler of his fifth house. We will look at the condition of all these planets, which will help us determine just how fertile the two of you are, and potentially, where the obstacles to fertility may lie.

The Moon is in Virgo, which is a barren sign, and afflicts your fifth house of fertility by a sextile aspect. This is not an auspicious start, but it can still be overcome by other positive evidence. The significator of the potential baby is Mars in Aries, which is a neutrally fertile sign. Mars is in the ninth house, where it is cadent and therefore difficult to express its energy.

Your husband’s significator, Saturn, is in a barren sign, Leo. Saturn also afflicts your fifth house, your fertility, by a square aspect. His fifth house is ruled by Venus in the fertile sign of Cancer, which is very positive. However, I am concerned that this testimony alone is not enough to promise a child. This fertile Venus applies to trine your house of fertility, which is a positive factor, but it is tucked away in the 12th house, and so does not have the oomph needed to manifest.

We do not see an applying aspect between the Moon and Mars, which, combined with the testimonies for infertility, does not promise a child. We do see an applying aspect between the Moon and Mercury. Mercury can signify doctors, so you may well make another trip to the physician either for testing or for fertility treatment. I do wish you much luck.

Free Astrology Advice: Horary Question – When Will We Conceive?

January 23, 2007 by  

womanwithbabyinlapsmallchild Free Astrology Advice: Horary Question   When Will We Conceive?

Horary Question:

When will we conceive?My husband and I are currently trying for a baby. We got married last August and started trying at the end of September. We are both in our late 20s and everything is very good in the relationship at the moment. The negative tests I’ve gotten for the last two-three months are becoming a bit depressing. I was wondering if you can offer any advice as to how long it looks like it might take us to get pregnant. I’m very positive every month as we have no reasons to worry, but also have an impatient streak!

—M.

Nina Gryphon:

Dear M.,

It’s interesting getting such a range of fertility questions as I do; ultimately, they’re all the same, because they ask the same question.However, the people asking the question couldn’t be more different.This, of course, results in charts that are very different — some practically shout yes, while others are quite discouraging.The horoscope always reflects the situation, and once you have done this for a while, you can see the overall tenor of a chart almost at first glance.The horoscope for your horary question is below:

conceiveifandwhen Free Astrology Advice: Horary Question   When Will We Conceive?

The first order of business, as ever, is to check whether you can conceive at all.Many people assume they can, but they don’t really know.Out of our four significators of fertility (yours, his, and each of your houses of fertility), three planets are in neutral signs and one is in a barren sign.Given your age, this is pretty encouraging, though it’s not as strong as if several of the planets in question had been in fertile signs, for example.But you already knew that, since if you were positively brimming over with fertility, you wouldn’t be writing to me today.

There are a few idiosyncratic features of your chart that are worth noting.One, we see that your significator, Jupiter, is extremely strong.Even though it is in a neutrally fertile sign, its very strength will ensure that you can conceive.Jupiter is in its own sign of Sagittarius, and it is just outside of the 10th house, a dominant position in the horoscope.

Two, we see that the baby, shown by the ruler of the fifth house, the Moon, is in the first house, where it has lots of power to act.Finally, we see that Mars its exaltation in Capricorn is on your husband’s fifth house of fertility (the radical 11th house). Normally, I do not like to see malefics in the houses of fertility, but seeing that this one is exalted, it is less of an affliction and might give us a hint as to what is going on.It could be that your husband is not quite as fertile as he may seem, though he is still plenty fertile.The exaltation causes you to have higher expectations than warranted, in other words.

Since you have established that you will eventually get pregnant, we can push the Moon forward through so-called prohibiting aspects (namely, the upcoming square to Mars), until the Moon aspects Jupiter.It doesn’t take very much, since Jupiter is the next planet after Mars to get aspected by the Moon.This is another good sign, and this is what I mean by saying that some charts just have a much nicer tenor than others.The Moon will trine Jupiter in about 9°, which I would interpret as weeks, though if you try hard enough, perhaps you can reduce it to days!

Free Astrology Advice: Horary Question – When Will I Conceive?

January 18, 2007 by  

 motherandchildingarden Free Astrology Advice: Horary Question   When Will I Conceive?

Horary Question:


When will I get pregnant?  My husband and I are both 28 years old.  My husband works away 2 weeks and then he is home 2 weeks.  I am 60 lbs overweight and am trying to get the weight off by eating right and exercising.  I am slow at this and am working up to cardio exercising.  We are asking for a child because we have been married for 4 1/2 years and have been trying since February 2006.  I was on birth control and now I am not ovulating, according to the doctors.  We have been actively trying for 11 months and we are having fun, but it is getting frustrating.  I have not been having a regular period, either, a direct result of not ovulating.

—L.

Nina Gryphon:

Dear L.,

I certainly can sympathize with your situation; I never realized just how many women so badly want children until I started writing this column.  I don’t think a day goes by that I don’t get an e-mail from a woman who wants a child but is having trouble conceiving.  The good news for you, of course, is that you are young, as is your husband, so your odds are substantially higher than they would be otherwise.

In any question about pregnancy, we must first determine whether a person will conceive, and only then can we get to the timing.  I cast a horary chart for the time and understood your question.  The drawing of the horary is below:

 williconceiveandwhen Free Astrology Advice: Horary Question   When Will I Conceive?

We notice that the rulers of your and your husband’s houses (the first and the seventh, ruled by Mars and Venus) are both in neutrally fertile signs, Capricorn and Aquarius, which for people your age is okay.  We also have to look at the fifth house of children for each of you, and we see that the ruler of your fifth house is the Sun in Capricorn, another neutral sign.  Your husband’s fifth house is ruled by Saturn which is in Leo, a barren sign.  I am concerned about this, because that nasty Saturn falls right in your fifth house of fertility.  Moreover, Saturn also aspects your ascendant, further indicating that his lack of fertility may be harming you. There could be a possibility that your husband is not as fertile as you may think.  Fortunately, you can have him tested.

I also do not love the fact that the Moon is in its detriment in Capricorn, though Capricorn is neutral in terms of fertility.  The Moon squares the ascendant, again showing that your fertility difficulties are harming you.  Finally, we see Mercury in your husband’s fifth house, peregrine, afflicting your fifth house cusp.  Mercury rules your second house of food, as well as your sixth house of illness, showing that one or both of these could be afflicting your fertility.  Of course Mercury rules houses in your husband’s chart as well, specifically the 12th house of self undoing; to the extent your husband has negative personal habits, such as smoking, this may exacerbate the problem.

So the first order of business would be to get your and your husband’s health checked out, and also eliminate any counterproductive habits or behavior.  It is great that you are working on weight loss, since I am sure that alone will help you quite a bit in increasing your fertility.

One ray of light here is that the Moon will conjoin the Sun in 5°, in the 10th house.  Since the fifth house rules the baby and the Moon rules you, this shows one possibility of the two of you conceiving.  The 5° most likely show five weeks or five months, so you may want to wait to see if you conceive at that time.  Given the other difficulties in the chart, the conception is not exactly a slam dunk, but you also may not want to run to the doctor until you have tried a little bit longer.
