The Moon, Venus and ruler of the 7th house refer to marriage in a male nativity, and the Sun, Venus and ruler of the 7th house refer to and govern marriage in a female nativity.
If the Moon in a male nativity or the Sun in a female nativity be in strong aspect (conjunction, square or opposition). to Mars, Saturn or Uranus, then there will be discord, dissatisfaction, and generally poor results in marriage. Mars and Uranus cause discord, quarreling, etc.; Saturn ill-health of a marriage partner. If the planets causing the evils are in a fiery sign, the evils are much worse than if in the other signs.
Again, if Saturn, Mars or Uranus be in the 7th house then there will be as much evil as if the Sun or Moon were afflicted or if either of the three evil planets are near the cusp of the 1st house, as this will be in evil aspect to cusp of 7th.
If the ruler of the 1st house be in evil aspect to the ruler of the 7th house there will be disagreements. A lady born with Saturn on the cusp of the 1st or 7th house would do better not to marry as it will be a failure.
To judge which will live the longer, husband or wife, notice the ruler of the 1st and 7th, and the one having best aspects and dignities will outlive the other.
The number of times one will be married is determined by the number of aspects to the Moon and Sun at the time of birth. If there be two or more aspects at the time of birth, then they will marry twice or more, but an aspect which is past must not be considered, as when one is born with an aspect just leaving., they will fall in love with one described by the planet in that sign which the aspect is formed in. Thus: The Moon in aspect to Jupiter in Leo, the party would answer a Leo description. The planets will never show whether a ceremony will be performed, but will indicate that there is affection existing between two strong enough to cause marriage.
The Moon in strong aspect to Uranus will cause a male to love others besides his own wife after he has been married. Often the Sun in strong aspect to Uranus does the same in a female nativity. The first aspect the Sun or Moon completes after birth to a planet describes the marriage partner; if there are to be two marriages, the second aspect of the Sun or Moon will describe him or her.
An early marriage is indicated when Mars or Venus are very near any exact aspect; also, if Venus be well aspected and in the 1st, 4th, 7th or 10th houses. If Mars and Venus form an exact aspect at birth, the native will have a prominent love affair at the age of 19 years, and one at 38 also, if single; but a marriage which is caused by Mars, by being in one of its periods, generally ends disastrously in a very few years.
One should never marry when their significator cf marriage is afflicted. Such as during the time Saturn is transiting the ascendant, 7th house or in strong aspect to Sun or Moon’s radix, or of the radix of Venus. Good times for marriage are when Jupiter is in the 1st, 7th or 10th houses, or in good aspect to Sun or Moon’s radix. Generally, one who is to be fortunate in marriage will be married during one of these good periods, or if evil, will choose an evil time for it.
Good testimonies for marriage are Jupiter in the 7th or 10th and in good aspect to Sun or Moon according to the sex. The Sun well aspected to the Moon, if the Sun is in evil aspect to the Moon the native will have no success whatever. The ruler of the 1st in good aspect to ruler of the 7th modifies a great deal of evil otherwise.
One should try to marry another who has their Sun, Moon, and as far as possible, all other planets in good aspect to their own. The evil results in married life come when Saturn, Mars or Uranus transits evil aspects of the significations of marriage (the Sun, Moon, Venus, or through the 7th house). If Saturn be in the 7th his transit through the 7th is very evil. If Mars afflicts the Sun or Moon his transit over the strong aspect is very evil. Transits of Uranus are very evil because he moves so slow.
