Astrology and Marriage

Astrology and Marriage

Your natal chart will show if you want to marry, if you don’t want to marry and if you can’t be without a significant other person in your life.

Some signs are more resistant to settling down than others. For example, people with strong Aries, Gemini, Sagittarius and Aquarius often have less need for intimate partnerships than other signs. They are independent and they value their freedom.
If you have a great deal of Libra planets, you will want to be in a relationship and get into a marriage. Often, you stay in a relationship long past its sell by date just because you don’t want to be alone.
If you have planets in the 5th and 7th houses (children, romance, marriage, partnerships), you are likely to marry and get into a serious relationship. With no planets in the 5th or 7th houses, you will have more options available to you.It doesn’t mean that you won’t marry, or that you won’t get into a committed relationship, it just means that it won’t be something you feel compelled to do. Chances are, you’ll have life lessons in other areas. For example, with planets in the 10th house you will be ambitious and want a serious career, with planets in the 2nd house and 8th house, you will have lessons around money and valuing yourself and bringing out your unique talents.  
One sure sign of several marriages is having Jupiter in the 7th house or Sagittarius on the cusp of the 7th house. Jupiter is a very optimistic sign and tends to jump into a new relationship without thinking about it too deeply. It always hopes for the best and sees only the good things about a person. Conversely, having Saturn in the 7th house or Capricorn on the 7th house cusp will make you more cautious in relationships and you could limit your opportunities for getting married or you may marry later in life.
Another feature of Capricorn or Saturn in the 7th house can be that you fall for people who are unavailable. It could be that they are already married, much too old or too young for you or in a different social bracket. If you meet someone who is married and they do become available, the likelihood is that you will start to find fault with them and not want the relationship any more. 
In astrology, Mars in a woman’s chart tends to describe her romantic partners and the kinds of men she attracts to her, just as Venus in a man’s chart shows the kinds of women that he is drawn to.

Keep in mind, that in astrology, no matter how difficult the planetary aspects between two charts are, if both partners are determined to make the marriage or relationship a success and they are willing to put in the effort and work, they can do it. You are not stuck with the natal promise in your chart. There is always the potential to outgrow the more difficult aspects.
