Timing in Astrology is essential. In this article, we will explore the best timings for new love, romance and marriage.

By Justyna

Love and astrology have its own unique timing, and there are indications within your progressed chart that will help you discover and learn about those particular years when someone new will be coming into your life, or it’s a suggestion of a marriage year.

The best way for the analysis is to generate a natal, progressed and transit chart and compare them together, by creating a tri-wheel.

When you generate your progressed charts, (try astro.com) you can then begin to compare it to your natal chart. Each planet progresses at a different rate with fastest moving planets moving quickest and slower-moving so slowly, even 1 degree every ten years. For that reason, you mainly focus on the fastest moving planets in your progressed chart like Sun, Moon, Mercury, Venus and Mars. When one of your love planets progresses to make an aspect to one of your natal planets or another progressed planet, this is a vital factor to take into consideration.

Success! You're on the list.

Aspects that are created by a progressed planet to a natal planet are the most powerful, but you will also see them making aspects to the other progressed planets.

The most popular aspects in love astrology are the conjunction, trine, and sextile. However, squares and oppositions are also vital.

However, the most commonly seen aspects of love in astrology are between the following planetary combinations: Venus and Mars, Sun and Venus, Sun and Mars, Sun and Moon, Moon and Venus, Moon and Mars and finally any of the love planets to the angles and the ruler of the 7th house.

Also, don’t forget to look at your Arabic Part of Marriage and love planets making an aspect to this point.

When you are examining your love planets in the progressed chart to
natal/ progressed planets, it is essential that you stick to a 1-degree orb.

Pay attention to the time when Venus, makes an exact aspect (to 1 degree after )and similarly Mars, makes an exact aspect, or 1 degree before and one after.

To find the best timing for new romance or marriage, look at the transiting planets of love triggering the planets in your progressed chart. It will also work if you are already in a relationship and are looking for a marriage year.

I personally also like to look at New Moon taking place in either 5th, the house of romance and love and/or 7th house, the house of relationships and marriage. New Moon is a time of new beginning, making it an excellent for starting new projects, commitments and plans.

The Soulmate Connection

There is a lot of information circulating about soulmates and much of it is conflicting, as in any subject. It is difficult to have a solid understanding that can serve us when we attempt to know what these heartfelt connections in our lives mean.

By Kaleah LaRoche

The fairy tale version is that there is that one special someone out there who is made just for you and when you find him/her your life will finally be complete. Your expectation is that when you meet your soulmate that life will go smoothly; you will be head over heels in love and support each other completely in your quest for a greater life. It is the type of love story movies are made about. It is why we love romantic comedies so much. It is why we love fairy tales.

There is another belief system that tells us we have many different soul mates and they aren’t all romantic or sexual in nature. A soulmate could be a best friend, a family member or a lover. And…there are many soulmates in one lifetime that we will cross paths with.

For the sake of this exploration, I would like to stick to the topic of the romantic chemistry that leads us to believe we have found a soulmate. He or she is the ONE! When with this person we believe all our prayers have been answered, our dreams are coming true, we have finally met our match. No one we have been with has affected us like this person has. We have never felt so “in love,” so crazy about anyone in our lives.

Processing…
Success! You're on the list.

The problem with meeting this kind of soulmate is that when we are crazy for someone, the emphasis is more strongly on the “crazy” part. Rather than feeling calm, centred, balanced, self-assured, confident and on top of the world, we often experience the opposite. We are off-balance, confused, unsure of ourselves, and struggling with our feelings of self-worth. We can’t help but wonder why we feel so small in the light of greatness, or this person who at first appeared to be so great!

We hang in there with him or her in hope that we will grow beyond the difficulties and find the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow, the promise of true love and marital bliss. But the longer we hang in there the more our self-esteem erodes and the further into the darkness we seem to spiral.

Is this love? Is this the soulmate connection? What is it?

Although some are lucky enough in life to meet someone whom they truly feel a positive love bond with and their relationships are harmonious and inspiring, others find that their soulmate relationships end up being the most troubling and challenging relationships they have ever experienced. They feel the greatest deal of pain and misery. The promise of a dream come true gives way to the worst nightmare. Mr. right becomes Mr. wrong. The Prince becomes a toad. Snow White becomes the wicked stepmother.

How do we get fooled into believing the one we have fallen head over heels for is our soulmate? And why do we have so much trouble letting go?

It is my belief that there really may be a soulmate connection there. We feel a deep soul bond with this person, even if the relationship has become nasty and we feel very mistreated, even abused. The reason for this is Karmic Resolution.

The soulmate theory is based on a belief in past lives, that we have been together before and we somehow recognize each other again in this life. It might feel as if we know the person and there is an immediate connection. The question is “how did we know that person before?” Was he or she someone we loved dearly, a beloved husband, wife, or lover? Or is it possible this person was someone you hurt in the past who hurt you this time around to balance the karmic scales? It is possible this person abused you in the past and you brought him into your life to abuse you again so you could learn to say “No” to abuse.

Is this person someone whom there may be a true loving bond with from lifetimes ago, but this life has brought so much deep wounding that they don’t know how to open their heart and let love in? And as much as you try to love them and help them, you end up being the one who gets hurt because they can’t truly love you in return.

Could it be that you had a soul contract with someone whom you agreed to meet in this lifetime to learn some important life lessons? Your lesson may be learning to love yourself more in the face of someone who can’t seem to love you. Or it might be learning to honour and respect yourself in the light of someone who does not honour you. There could be an important aspect of your soul’s growth at stake here.

Finding a soulmate does not necessarily mean finding the love of your life, the one whom you are perfectly designed to be with who is perfectly designed for you. It may be more like signing up for a difficult course or going through a powerful initiation. It may be painful beyond words because the lessons brought into your life to teach you are hard ones. They are lessons you may not want to learn and have great resistance to. On the same hand, the soulmate may have even greater resistance to the lessons you have come to teach them. They may run fast and far and do everything in their power to avoid seeing the truth that is right in front of them. They may be someone unable to commit to the path of love because they learned at an early age that love hurts; so they protect their heart with many walls of defences. It doesn’t matter how much love you give, you can’t break down their walls.

Soulmates may come into our lives for a season, a reason or a lifetime. One thing we can be sure of. When we meet a soulmate we will never be the same again. They have the power to awaken something within us that we can’t put back to sleep, even if we want to. We may move on, leave them behind, be left behind and forced to go on without them, but they will forever be a part of us. In their wake we may have to learn the lessons of forgiveness, letting go and loving ourselves in ways we never realize were possible. We might have to learn how loving someone sometimes means letting them go. And even though we learn to let go, we never forget them or the impact they had on our lives.

The lover whom we have no intense chemistry with maybe the most harmonious relationships of all but we will need to get beyond the desire for an intense chemical attraction. Intense romantic or sexual chemistry can equal and intense and unstable emotional relationship. It can be heady and exciting in the beginning but sooner or later it will give way to something that completely knocks us off balance. The intensity is there for a reason.

So rather than searching for the one who will rock your world, it may be wise to search for someone who calms your emotional sea and puts you at ease. This is a far greater ingredient for lasting love with someone you can count on to be there for you in the long run.

5 Ways to Determine If You’ve Found Your Soulmate

soulmate
Image credit: Pixabay

Early on in a relationship, it is often very hard to determine if you’ve met your ideal match and if the person you are dating is actually your soulmate.

By Elena Krasnova

However, there are certain signs that let you know almost right away whether the one you are dating is your perfect partner.

1) You are fully comfortable and relaxed with this person as if you’ve known him/her for a long time.
Soulmates often have a “feeling like they already knew each other” before they even met. According to esoteric studies of soulmates, they actually have met before, in their past lives. Whether this is true and whether you believe it or not doesn’t really matter. The fact is that soulmates have a fundamental energy bond that they both feel from the very beginning. They can’t explain it, but it feels like they’ve known each other longer than they actually had. They feel at ease with each other, like they could say or do anything they could with an old friend. The comfort level is extremely high between soulmates.

2) You are not playing “the dating game”.
Soulmates don’t wait 3 days before calling after a first date. Soulmates don’t “play hard to get” or pretend they care less about their partner than they actually do, even in the very beginning of the relationship. Soulmates aren’t afraid to “look desperate” in front of each other by making a move, and they certainly aren’t reserved about how they feel about each other (whether they verbalize it or not). Soulmates’ main desire is to just BE with each other, and they are not concerned with what everyone else thinks, and much less how they should act at a certain point in the relationship. They just do what feels right.

3) You feel a deep connection with this person from the very beginning.
As I mentioned in the first sign, soulmates have a fundamental bond on the energy level, and it is usually evident to both parties very early on in the relationship. This can be described as a feeling that this person is almost a part of you in some way (not to be confused with infatuation, where you feel like you NEED the person to continue living, so to speak). You feel like this person adds profoundly to the quality of your life and you want to share important moments with him/her, as soulmates always share everything.

Processing…
Success! You're on the list.

4) Your most important life values are a match.
Soulmates almost always agree on important things in life. It means that they share different values, from spiritual to materialistic, and they agree on many things from where they want to live to how they spend their free time. They don’t necessarily have to have all the same interests, but they certainly share the most significant ones. What this means varies from couple to couple. For example, my partner and I like very different music, but to us, it’s a very trivial difference because music is not an extremely important part of our lives. However, for another couple, music can be very important, and if they are soulmates, chances are they will agree on the kind of music they like.

5) When you make love, it is deeply sensual, as well as extremely passionate and satisfying.
The physical expression of love between soulmates is just as powerful as their emotional and spiritual bond. When soulmates come together physically, it is more than just a sexual act. It is their deep spiritual connection materializing into tangible form. That’s why the intensity and passion level between soulmates is usually much higher than that of regular couples. The deep connection that you feel in point #3 from within will also undoubtedly be expressed from without in a soulmate relationship.

Attract Your Soulmate – Ten Top Ways

soulmate

Attracting your soulmate doesn’t have to be for the lucky ones. You can deliberately create an ideal relationship with the partner of your dreams.

By Maryann Candito

Over the years, by working on myself and with clients through the law of attraction coaching, I have discovered my own magical formula to help you attract your soulmate and it doesn’t involve waving a magic wand or speaking into a mirror…well sometimes it does but that’s another story!

First off, think about a massive 5000 item salad bar. When you walk down the aisle to put the various toppings on your bed of lettuce you pick and choose only the items that you like. Imagine you have a very large plate and everything you want on your salad will fit on the plate and is present on this salad bar. Also, keep in mind that you have no doubts that your favourite toppings will be available as you stroll along with salad bar heaven. By the time you get to the end of the line, you have created a masterpiece and your salad is completely by your design, that is the law of attraction. It’s the same way with selecting qualities that you desire in a partner. Your soulmate is by your design and there is someone out there that is a perfect fit. Your main job is to tell the Universe what you want in a partner AND in a relationship. This brings us to number one.

Image credit: Pxabay

1. List It -The more specific you are the more the universe will understand what you want. Don’t be afraid to shoot for the moon. Let your imagination run free. Get in the mood if you have to; put on your favourite romantic music, light some candles, watch your favourite romantic comedy. Just sit back, relax and let your imagination take the reins.

If you are having some difficulties listing then your next step would be to discover your clarity through contrast.

2. Contrast & Clarity – This is a helpful law of attraction exercise. Pull out a fresh piece of paper or go to a new page in your notebook. Go to the middle of the page and draw a vertical line down the centre. The left side is contrast and the right side is clarity. On the left side, list all of the qualities you don’t want in a soulmate or what you don’t want in a relationship. Don’t focus on contrast. Simply list them. Next, go to the right side and list the opposites or what you do want in a soulmate or a relationship. The contrast helps you see the clarity in more light. When you are finished, rip off the contrast side and throw it away. Now focus your attention and intention on the clarity – your soulmate!

3. Forgiveness – Through the law of attraction coaching, I have noticed that many people, including myself, underestimate the power of forgiveness. It is vitally important when attracting your soulmate to forgive others as well as yourself. When you hold on to the emotional charges around past loves, past relationships and even self-blame, you create a wall around yourself which blocks your soulmate from coming to you. Forgiveness allows you to take your power back, release the past and make room for the new – your soulmate!

The 4th step is one of the most important and crucial ingredients to attracting your soulmate using the law of attraction.

4. Get Rid of the Baggage! – The baggage that we carry around is really our own negative or limiting beliefs about ourselves, about love, about relationships, well about everything really. The baggage is also old emotional wounds that are still caught up in our body and mind. Carrying around this baggage can bog you down and create a layer of gunk that keeps you from attracting your soulmate. I have experienced the most success in getting rid of the baggage with clients and in my own life through EFT, Emotional Freedom Technique. To read more about EFT, visit the official EFT website: http://www.EFTuniverse.com.

5. Release the Need – This means not needing someone in your life to complete you or fill any voids in your life. You are a complete and whole person and at the same time, you are constantly evolving and growing. In this step, you continue to work on yourself and your past baggage. Remember, your goal is not perfection. Your goal is awareness of yourself and of the issues that you need to work on. EFT is very helpful with this as well.

6. Create a Vacuum – If your schedule is so packed that you don’t have any time for a partner, then there’s no room for one to enter. In this step, it is imperative to make room in your schedule and your home for your soulmate. You are creating a void, and the universe will do what it takes to fill this void. Some suggestions are: clear out a few drawers, make room in your closet, sleep on one side of the bed, park on one side of the driveway, not in the middle. The universe will jump to action to fill the space with your soulmate.

Processing…
Success! You're on the list.

7. Live Authentically by living your truth – It’s really important to let your essence shine. It is so important to be YOU, be your authentic self, not play some dating game and put on an alter persona to get a partner hooked and then three months down the line you surprise him/her with the ‘real you’. This brings up the question: How much do I love myself? Do I love myself enough to honor the truth of who I am, what I want in life, what I want in a partner, etc? ” If we are living authentically the universe can only support us. It’s when we live un-authentically that we run into all sorts of relationship problems.

8. Living and Feeling As If – Live as if your Soulmate is already in your life. Live in a state of having your soulmate, not wanting a soulmate. Know that your soulmate is with you in vibrational form and believe that the physical form is on its way. Feel As If means feel your soulmate with all five senses. Take time each day to visualize your soulmate and infuse that visualization with details. What does it feel like to eat dinner with your soulmate? What does it feel like it to watch a movie with your soulmate? When you engage the feeling aspect of having, you are really revving up your manifesting power because you are now becoming in alignment with your desires. You are resonating at a place of where you desire to be as if you are living it and that, in turn, raises your vibration to the place of Having not Wanting and that will put you in soulmate attraction mode!

9. Gratitude – Every day you should take some time to be grateful for all that you have in your life and all that you will have, once again as if you already have it. By being in the place of gratitude you raise your vibration, thus putting you more in alignment with your desires.

10. Detach and Allow – Release your desire to the universe and trust that your soulmate is on the way.

So are you ready to get rid of the baggage and get busy attracting your soulmate?

Oh what’s that I hear? Ding Dong… guess who’s at the door?

7th House Planets: Your Relationships

Image credit: Pixabay

Learn about the 7th house planet placements in Your Natal Chart.

By Justyna

With the Sun in the 7th house, relationships will play an essential role in one’s life. Often people with this placement feel incomplete until they find their other half. 

The Moon here, on the other hand, indicates that the native seeks emotional security through relationships. Hence people with the Moon in this house often marry young. If the Moon is well aspected, this should be a happy marriage. However, if it has some difficult aspects, then the marriage may, for instance, be delayed.

Processing…
Success! You're on the list.

People with Mercury in the 7th house seek mentally stimulating relationships. Often the love partner happens to be of a Mercurial type and have the Sun or stellium in Virgo or Gemini.

One of the best planet placements in the 7th house is Venus, as this is the natural ruler of this house. Natives with this placement want their relationship to be perfect and beautiful. Nevertheless, poorly aspected Venus can indicate disappointments and frustrations.

With Mars in the house of marriage and relationships, the native will seek excitement and at the same challenge. Natives with Mars in the 7th house will often seek partners with a strong Mars or well-positioned Aries in the natal chart.

Jupiter here is a sign for a happy marriage and natives with this planet placement may find a partner that is wealthy and successful. However, if Jupiter is poorly aspected, then the marriage partner may be somewhat unreliable and irresponsible.

People with Saturn in the 7th house seek security through relationships. A well aspected Saturn here is a great bonus and help for the relationship to be long-lasting, as this cold planet may present obstacles along the way. Sometimes Saturn here also indicates loneliness in the marriage and/or that the native will marry late.

Natives with Uranus in the house of marriage and relationships will need a lot of freedom. They may find it challenging to stay in a long term relationship or find it hard to have a traditional love relationship. Often, people with this placement may attract slightly eccentric and unconventional partners.

People with Neptune in this house will seek a soul mate, someone with whom they will connect on an emotional and physical level.

Finally, with Pluto in the 7th house, the native will often attract partners who are manipulative and want to be in control of their life. That could be connected to relationship karma carried over from previous incarnation(s).

No planets in the 7th house?

Look at the Sign on the cusp of the 7th house and the placement of its ruler. Also, the aspects that the ruler of the 7th house makes to other planets.

Love indicators in the Birth Chart

Why him?

Have you ever wondered why you become attracted to a specific type of man?

By Justyna

There are probably many people that appear in your life, often handsome and some of them might be even husband potentials and yet you do not get fascinated by their charm. You do not feel chemistry towards them, because in reality, you want someone else. However, you are usually not aware of that.

Our natal chart tells us not only about the type of our dream man but also shows how our female-male relations will look. In other words, your birth horoscope indicates how love will look in your life.

Venus and Mars

In woman’s birth chart, both Mars and the Sun are responsible for the image of a man. The signs in which these planets are found and the aspects that they make to other planets, tell us about what type of partner we are seeking. The Sun symbolises the fundamental nature of a man, while Mars represents the physical qualities. If the aspects are harmonious (sextiles or trines), between these planets the relationship often results to be successful.

The natal Moon here is also important because it tells us a lot about our inner life, our fertility and sexual initiation. If a woman has in her birth chart very disharmonious aspects() of the moon to another planet or an angle, she will probably have difficulty accepting herself. This, in turn, could translate into her relationship with the partner. Venus here also symbolises what kind of woman she will be.

In turn, in the man’s natal chart the natal Moon and natal Venus describe the ideal type of partner. Venus placement by sign, house position and aspects indicates what type of woman he seeks and is likely to attract. It also shows what a man find immediately attractive in a woman. The moon, however, indicates whether this relationship will be emotionally fulfilling and how it will be experienced on a deeper level.

Generally, you should also try to find out about the dominating element in the partner’s chart. This will give you a better understanding of who you are dealing with; whether this is someone passionate and lively or cold and withdrawn.
