How to Predict Marriage Using Astrology

See how your birth chart can predict major shifts in your married life!

So, you've fallen in love. Your heart is soaring and life is grand. But will this romance lead to commitment or marriage?

To answer that question we need to consider the 7th house of your Astrology chart! The 7th house is the house that rules marriage and all committed relationships.

First you need to find out which planet rules your 7th house. Get your own birth chart, and look at the cusp (or beginning) of your 7th house, and which sign that is in. Then, look below to see which planet rules that sign -- this is the planet that rules your 7th house.

Next, find where that planet is in your particular birth chart. When an outer planet in the current skies positively aspects this planet in your birth chart, it's a big sign of marriage potential.

For example in my own chart, if you look at the 7th house you will see the sign Libra on the cusp. Libra is ruled by Venus, and in my chart Venus is placed in Aries and my 12th house. So if I am going to get married, I would expect my Venus to receive a positive aspect from one of the outer planets in the sky. 

Sure enough, when I got married on November 2, 1997, transiting Pluto was trine my natal Venus (ruler of my 7th house). That's a major hit! But transiting Uranus (which is a co-ruler of my 7th house) was also making a perfect sextile to natal Venus. WOW!

Making a commitment

Saturn in the sky will also play a role when you are ready for commitment, since Saturn rules obligations and things that are long-term. As a result, you can expect transiting Saturn to make aspect to the ruler of your 7th house.

Say it out loud: Transiting Saturn must be connected to your 7th house or its ruler in order for you to make a commitment like marriage! And indeed, transiting Saturn was moving to a conjunction with my 1st house when I got married!
