*Eleditor’s note: Astrology isn’t a religion. We’re not sure it’s a science, either. It’s magic, maybe. But, as with feng shui, say, things affect things. So as long as we don’t go blaming our problems on the stars, as long as we assume responsibility for our own actions…well, hell, a little auspicious coincidence and applicable wisdom can’t hurt. And so, with that grain of salt…enjoy!
In my 35 years as an astrologer, the question I am asked most often is, “Larry, when will I meet someone for marriage?”
Look no further—the 7th House of your birth chart holds the answer to that question. This house of your horoscope is known as the House of Relationships, referring to marriage as well as divorce.
It may also hold the answer to, “How long will I stay married?” This is the House of intimate partnerships such as marriage, where there’s a deep commitment of love between two people. It’s quite fortunate when two people meet, come together and feel that wellspring of love where they are happy and genuinely want to be in a committed relationship together.
When is Your Lucky Time for Marriage?
You may meet a marriage partner when Jupiter transits your seventh House (or aspects the ruler of this house). When Jupiter transits this house for approximately one year, it gives you the opportunity for favorable partnerships and love relationships. If you’re single and want to find a wonderful loving relationship, then you’ve received a valuable gift when Jupiter transits your 7th House. It’s an incredibly lucky time to find a partner. If you’ve just said to a friend, “When will I ever meet my prince (or princess)?”—the universe has the answer for you. This could be the year!
What’s great about this time is that you are in an expansive state of mind where you’re genuinely open to a relationship. You’re likely to feel sociable, generous, affectionate, loving and very capable of intimacy with others. Because you feel confident, you have the courage to express yourself in a natural and easy manner in all your relationships. You possess a positive and optimistic demeanor, which is attractive to others and makes it easy for you to have honest and open relationships. In fact, when Jupiter visits your 7th House, you’ve been given a gift you can use to achieve your dreams if a love relationship is what you yearn for.
Perhaps in the past you’ve enjoyed the excitement of being single, dating around and having fabulous romantic experiences. You now realize your happiness comes from sharing your life with another person and learning about yourself in the process. You’ll have many fortuitous opportunities to socialize and meet desirable “potential” mates for a long-term committed relationship. I remind my clients that what’s so great about Jupiter transiting the 7th House is that, unlike other times when you may have met unsuitable partners, now you’ll meet ones for the long-term who may be “marriageable.”
If you’re already in a committed relationship, Jupiter’s transit here can provide you with positive assistance to improve your partnership and make it even better. You may discover during this year that you love and enjoy your partner even more than you did when you first married.
Great Year to Be Out Socializing for Fun & Romance
Don’t squander this gift by sitting at home or working your usual long day at the office. If you’re single and want to meet someone for a satisfying relationship that could lead to commitment, this is your year because you’ll have many opportunities. You can take advantage of this good fortune by busying your social calendar with many activities, parties and events where you can meet people.
Jupiter’s influence brings a special potential for enjoying love and romance in your social relationships. You’ll delight over any romance you encounter because it’s likely to be a love affair that’s exciting and passionate. You may even be attracted to someone of a different social or ethnic background. One of the features of your relationships right now is that they have the capacity to teach and help you expand your worldview so that you’re more sophisticated than before this transit took effect.
