The Asteroid 447 is Valentine, a Love Asteroid that has a big impact in compatibility and synastry. Valentine represents true, pure love, and the sacrifices we are willing to make to be with our partner.
As I was researching Valentine, I was struck by how much it reminded me of Neptune and Pisces.

When I see strong Valentine aspects in a synastry chart, I am excited. The Valentine person usually wants to make the planet person happy, and does everything in their power to do so. It is an extremely romantic and sweet energy that is welcome in any relationship.

But what about the ‘bad’ ones? Which synastry aspects are considered detrimental to a relationship? Let’s discuss.
The worst synastry aspects
Sun square Mars, Sun opposite Mars
This aspect is tough to handle , especially those who do not like too much conflict or drama in their relationships. The Sun and Mars are both confrontational and driven planets. so a square aspects between them in synastry can lead to much frustration and ego clashes.
In this couple, competitiveness is taken to a new level. These two may see each other more as enemies rather than partners, and tend to irritate each other easily. At some point, the irritation and conflict may become too much, resulting in a huge blowout.
Moon square Mars, Moon opposite Mars
Hard aspects between one person’s Mars and another person’s Moon indicates petty arguments and hurt feelings. In this relationship, the couple know how to get under each other’s skin.
The Moon person may find the Mars person overly aggressive, rude, and hurtful, while the Mars person thinks the Moon person is overly sensitive and emotional. Indeed, the Moon person is very sensitive to any perceived meanness or aggression from the Mars person, and vice versa. There is a tendency to taking things “the wrong way” in this relationship. It is hard to discuss feelings without hurting each other.
Mars square Mars, Mars opposite Mars
This is another tough aspect. Mars is the planet of energy and action, so when it is in square aspect to another person’s Mars, frustrations and conflicts may feature strongly in the relationship. This couple is very competitive with each other, but not in a healthy way. These two easily irritate and annoy one another, which can make it hard to stay together in the long run.
This aspect also does not bode very well in the bedroom. It shows different likes and dislikes, and dissimilar rhythms and energies.
Sun square Saturn, Sun opposite Saturn
This aspect can be tough in a relationship. The Sun person feels stifled and restricted by the Saturn person, while the Saturn person may feel the Sun person is immature and impractical.
The Sun person may eventually feel they are treated like a child by the Saturn person. For the Saturn person, it can be hard not to criticize the Sun person, for they see the Sun person as childish and irresponsible. This relationship can have a negative effect on the Sun person’s self-esteem in the long run.
Moon square Saturn, Moon opposite Saturn
The square between one person’s Moon and another person’s Saturn indicates emotional distancing and censoring. In this relationship, the Moon person does not feel safe and free to express their emotional needs. Instead, they feel afraid to express themselves to the Saturn person, out of fear the Saturn person will reject or disapprove of the Moon’s feelings.
The Saturn person feels the Moon person is overly sensitive and needy, while the Moon person finds the Saturn person cold and impersonal. In this relationship, the Saturn person probably feels awkward about emotional communication, so they discourage the Moon person from expressing themselves.
Venus square Saturn, Venus opposite Saturn
This is a classic indicator of relationship difficulties. In this relationship, the couple feels awkward expressing their love and affection to each other. This is because the Saturn person tends to discourage the Venus person from doing so. It can be very difficult to understand what each person feels in this relationship.
This aspect also indicates there could be barriers standing in the way of this couple formalizing a partnership. Sometimes differences in cultures, religions, social classes are indicated by this aspect.
Mars square Saturn, Mars opposite Saturn
This aspect is a tough one, and indicates much frustration and conflict in the relationship. The Mars person feels stifled and restricted by the Saturn person, and feel that nothing they do is ‘good enough’ for the Saturn person. Saturn wants to repress the Mars person’s energy and drive, for they find the Mars person very childish, impatient and impulsive.
The Saturn person may frequently get annoyed with the Mars person, while the Mars person finds the Saturn person to be a wet blanket. The Mars person feels they cannot express their assertive side without upsetting Saturn. This aspect can be a recipe for disaster, with both partners feeling frustrated with the other.
Sun square Uranus, Sun opposite Uranus
Uranus is the planet of freedom and liberation, so when it is square another person’s Sun, it can cause relationship issues. This relationship may have begun very suddenly and unexpectedly.
The Uranus person is generally unreliable and unpredictable when it comes to fulfilling their obligations to the Sun person. In turn, the Sun person might not feel they can rely on the Uranus person in times of need. Something always seems to get in the way of their relationship, and the plans they make together often do not pan out. This relationship has a strong on-off quality, and it can be difficult for these two to settle into a committed partnership.
Venus square Neptune, Venus opposite Neptune
If you have this aspect natally, everyone around your age has their Neptune in square aspect to your Venus.
This aspect can be problematic because of the confusion and deception Neptune tends to bring to a relationship. The Venus person feels the Neptune person is their soulmate, and vice-versa, but there can be difficultly when it comes to committing to each other fully.
When issues arise in this relationship, this couple is likely to ignore conflict and sweet their troubles under the rug. Other may think the couple is not in touch with reality because of their refusal to see the relationship for what it is.
The Venus person (or the Neptune person) projects their ideals on their partner. There may be a tendency to overpromise and underdeliver in this relationship. They see their partner as someone other than who they really are, which can cause issues later one when the rose-colored glasses are removed.
Mars square Pluto, Mars opposite Pluto
At first, this relationship can be quite enthralling and exciting. The sensual connection between you is off the charts! Over time, however, issues related to power, control, and anger may surface in the relationship.
Mars is the planet of energy and assertiveness. Mars shows our drive and ambition, and how we project our energies. Pluto, on the other hand, is the planet of transformation and power. In this relationship, when the Mars person asserts their will in the relationship, the Pluto person pushes back even harder. Pluto may resort to manipulative games in order to keep the Mars person ‘in line’, which angers the Mars person even more.
In this relationship, strong feelings are evoked on both sides. Each partner really knows how to push each other’s buttons and get under each other’s skin. At worst, this aspect can indicate physical conflict and violence.
What are your least favourite synastry aspects, and why? Comment below!
Unrequited love is a result of many situations, but they usually occur when 1) one person does not feel as strongly for their partner, or 2) something keeps the couple from being together.
These types of relationships are never easy, as at least one or both partner yearn for the other. It can be hard to accept the relationship is over, and you may see that partner as the “one that got away”.
In this article, we go over some major indicators that a relationship may end up in an ‘unrequited love’ scenario.
Saturn in Synastry and Unrequited Love
Aspects to watch out for:
One person’s Venus in hard aspect to another person’s Saturn
One person’s 7th house ruler in hard aspect to another person’s Saturn
Most of you may have guessed I’d mention Saturn in this article. Saturn is the planet of restriction and realism, as well as maturity and commitment.
When Saturn is well-aspected in a Synastry chart, the couple is likely quite committed and settled with each other. There is a feeling that they can depend on each other, and they feel responsible to one another. Positive Saturn aspects are commonly found in the synastry charts of married couples and long-term relationships, for they act as the ‘glue’ that keep a couple together.
When Saturn is not well-aspected in a Synastry chart, unrequited love can be the result. This is especially true in the case of hard Venus-Saturn synastry aspects, or if either person’s Saturn makes a hard aspect to the other person’s 7th house ruler.
If one person’s Saturn makes a hard aspect to another person’s Venus, barriers to commitment and partnership are indicated. In these relationships, the Saturn person might have some sort of restrictions or obstacles that keep them from being with the Venus person.
For example, perhaps the Saturn person is already in a relationship. If this is the case, the Saturn person is not likely to leave their current partner for the Venus person, as the Saturn person likely feels very responsible to their current relationship.
Another example could be religious or cultural barriers. Perhaps the Saturn persons’ family would not approve of the Venus person due to cultural or religious differences, and that is what keeps the couple from entering a real partnership.
Of course, the Saturn person may simply have inner fears regarding vulnerability and rejection, which keeps them from opening up fully to the Venus person.
I’ve found that couples with Venus-Saturn aspects find it hard to open up and talk to each other about their feelings. It can feel awkward to be vulnerable with each other, so the couple might avoid those kinds of conversations completely.
Whatever the reason, unrequited love is definitely a possibility when Saturn makes a harsh aspect to Venus in a Synastry chart.
The ruler of the 7th house in hard aspect to another person’s Saturn works similarly to the Venus-Saturn aspect I just mentioned. The 7th house is naturally ruled by Venus, so it also indicates barriers and obstacles to the couple being together.
What is your 7th house ruler?
If your 1st house is in Aries, the 7th house ruler is Venus
If your 1st house is in Taurus, the 7th house ruler is Pluto
If your 1st house is in Gemini, the 7th house ruler is Jupiter
If your 1st house is in Cancer, the 7th house ruler is Saturn
If your 1st house is in Leo, the 7th house ruler is Uranus
If your 1st house is in Virgo, the 7th house ruler is Neptune
If your 1st house is in Libra, the 7th house ruler is Mars
If your 1st house is in Scorpio, the 7th house ruler is Venus
If your 1st house is in Sagittarius, the 7th house ruler is Mercury
If your 1st house is in Capricorn, the 7th house ruler is the Moon
If your 1st house is in Aquarius, the 7th house ruler is the Sun
If your 1st house is in Pisces, the 7th house ruler is Mercury
If someone’s Saturn makes a hard aspect to your 7th house ruler, an unrequited love may be indicated. In this case, the Saturn person might have internal or external barriers which prevent them from committing fully to you.
Uranus in Synastry and Unrequited Love
Aspects to watch out for:
One person’s Venus in hard aspect to another person’s Uranus
One person’s 7th house ruler in hard aspect to another person’s Uranus
Uranus can be tricky in synastry, especially when it is aspecting another person’s Venus or 7th house ruler. It indicates the couple likely fell in love quite quickly and suddenly, but the relationship will likely end as suddenly. Uranus is unstable and unpredictable, and tends to prevent a formal commitment from forming.
In many cases, Uranus relationships are downright bizarre, as the Uranus person is too impractical and unstable for the relationship to continue. However, there are instances in which sudden, unexpected external factors prevent the couple from settling down together.
Perhaps the relationship is long distance, so the couple cannot find time to spend extended periods together. Or, perhaps the Uranus person is not fond of commitment, and would rather keep the relationship open in some way.
This might be very hard for the planet person, especially if a formal commitment is what they want. No matter how hard the planet person tries, they cannot ‘tame’ the Uranus person. If the planet person is very in love with the Uranus person, the relationship can be extremely frustrating and may eventually break up.
Unrequited Love in the Composite Chart
Aspects to watch out for:
Composite Venus (or 7th house ruler) in hard aspect to Composite Saturn
Composite Venus (or 7th house ruler) in hard aspect to Composite Uranus
These aspects in a Composite Chart are major indicators of a relationship that the relationship may not last.
In the case of Venus-Saturn hard aspects in Composite, barriers and obstacles exist in the relationship which prevent the couple from formalizing a commitment. Saturn in hard aspect to the 7th house ruler of the Composite chart works very similarly. External barriers may prevent them from being together, or one person simply may not feel the same way as the other partner.
With Venus-Uranus in the Composite chart, the relationship may be unpredictable or untraditional in some way, and settling down into a formal, traditional partnership might not be in the cards. If one of the partners wants a formal commitment, they may face difficulties due to the unpredictable and erratic nature of Uranus.
Unrequited Love in the Natal Chart
There are some natal aspects which point to someone who experiences unrequited love in their lifetime.
As with Synastry, Saturn aspects to love planets in the natal chart can indicate pain and loss when it comes to love. My ex boyfriend has Venus square Saturn in his natal chart, and he has unfortunately had a lot of pain in his relationship life (though, he does bring a lot of it on himself!).
People with harsh Venus-Saturn aspects in their natal charts may suffer from low self-esteem. They may feel they are unlovable or unworthy of true love, and often marry out of duty and end up in a loveless marriage. Or, it can prevent partnership and commitment completely.
Venus-Saturn folks usually have a strong fear of rejection and do not like appearing vulnerable to others. There may also be external factors that always get in the way of true love.
As a result, they may experience unrequited love. They might tend to fall in love with the ‘wrong’ people, or may even subconsciously choose ‘unavailable’ people because they know the relationship will end eventually.
All in all, unrequited love scenarios are very difficult to deal with, particularly when you really want the relationship to work. If you see strong Saturn or Uranus aspects in your synastry or Composite, especially if they make hard aspects to Venus or the ruler of the 7th house, you may end up in an unrequited love situation.
If you find yourself in a relationship like this, please remember that the universe has someone better in store for you.
This is a commonly-asked question in astrology which I would like to address. It is easy for one person in a relationship to feel they feel more strongly for their partner, than vice-versa.
How can you tell who feels more strongly for who in a Synastry Chart? What are the indicators of a one-sided relationship? What aspects show synastry compatibility towards one partner, but not the other?
Check out the House Overlays
House overlays are a powerful way to assess how each partner feels for the other person in a relationship. When interpreting a house overlay, it is important to understand how they work in a synastry chart.
When someone’s planet touches one of our houses, we feel the energy very strongly in the area the house represents.
For example, say my partner has their Venus in my 11th house. This means that I see my partner as a friend, above all else. We may have met through friends, and prefer being with our friend group when we are together as a couple. This is not a particularly romantic house overlay.
However, say my Venus is in my partner’s 8th house. This means I affect my partner is a deep and profound way. I bring out their deep and transformative feelings, and they feel obsessed and enchanted by me. I put them in touch with their primal instincts and show them a side of themselves they have never seen before.
As you can see, overlays to the 8th house feel very different than overlays to the 11th house. The person with the 8th house overlay may feel more strongly for their partner than the other way around. The 8th house person cannot help but feel intensely bonded to the planet person.
On the other hand, the 11th house person may not feel as intensely attracted and enthralled by the relationship, and would rather the two of them stay friends or ‘keep things light’. The 8th house person’s feelings are anything but light, which might make the 8th house person feel their feelings are one-sided.
When assessing your own synastry chart, check out where your partner’s planets land in your houses, and where your planets lie in their chart.
1st house overlays: strong attraction and identification. Also check aspects to each person’s Ascendant.
4th house overlays: strong feeling of attachment and dependency. This person feels like ‘home’ to you.
5th house overlays: feelings of love, playfulness, fun. When someone’s planets fall in this house, you feel romantically attracted to them, and you can see them as the future parent of your children.
7th house overlays: desire for commitment. If someone’s planets fall in this house, you see them as an ideal partner. They might not feel the same way if you have no planets in their 7th house (but check the rest of synastry to determine this)
8th house overlays: desire for merging and deep intimacy. The 8th house person is strongly affected by the planet person. The planet puts them in touch with their deep subconscious feelings, and they want to merge with the planet person.
If you find that your planets mostly fall in your partners 1st, 4th, 5th, 7th, or 8th houses, you affect them in a deep and profound level. If your partner’s planets tend to fall in the houses not listed above, you might not feel the same way for your partner. They simply do not affect you in the same way you affect them.
It is important to note that how your planets aspect each other can override ‘bad’ house placements. More on that below.
Venus aspects in synastry
Venus is the planet of love and affection. It shows how we show love and who we are attracted to.
When someone’s natal planets make an aspect to our natal Venus, they awaken our love. How that love is awakened depends on the planet aspecting Venus.
Inner planets are very important to consider here. Having someone’s Sun, Moon, Mercury, Venus or Mars in aspect to our Venus indicates a strong level of attraction and love.
For example, if your Mars is conjunct my Venus, I feel a passionate love towards you. You feel a strong sexual pull towards me, which is primarily based on physical attraction.
Outer planets are also very important in synastry. If someone’s Jupiter aspects your natal Venus, your loving nature is expanded through your association with this person. You feel very good when you are with them. Saturn in aspect to your Venus indicates this person teaches you how to love and relate in a mature and responsible way. You are willing to commit to them for the long-run.
Someone’s Uranus in aspect to your Venus indicates you feel a strong attraction to them, and you are in love with their uniqueness and individuality. Neptune in aspect to your Venus indicates this person teaches you about unconditional love and you may see them as your soulmate. Finally, someone’s Pluto in aspect to your Venus indicates this person impacts you powerfully and you will likely become romantically obsessed with this person.
But how do they feel about you?
If one partner receives many synastry aspects to their Venus, while the other partner does not receive many synastry aspects to their Venus, a one-sided relationship can be indicated. The person who receives many synastry aspects to their Venus experiences strong feelings of love and affection for their partner because their partner activates their love very strongly.
I find that square aspects between one persons Venus and another person’s planets is most problematic. In this case, the Venus person likely feels unappreciated in the relationship. They may feel they are constantly giving in the relationship, and their partner does not appreciate them.
Have you ever been in a one-sided relationship? What aspects did you share with your partner?
Progressed charts are calculated by adding one day for each year you are born to your natal chart. For example, if you were born on January 1, 1980, and you are now 25 years old, your progressed chart would be calculated by drafting a chart for January 26, 1980.
Progressions show trends which set off major events in your life, and are reinforced by the transits you are experiencing at the time.
You can check your progressions on astro.com. Go to the Extended Chart section, and choose “Natal and Progressed Chart.”
One of the most reliable indications in the progressed chart of meeting a new mate is to look at the condition of your progressed Venus or your 7th house ruler in your Chart, as well as progressions to your natal Venus or your 7th house ruler by other planets. Here are some progressions which indicate the beginning of an important relationship.
Progressed Venus to Ascendant/Descendant axis (or progressed Ascendant to Venus):
The Ascendant/Descendant axis represents the “self” and the “other”. The Ascendant represents our self-image and how we approach the world, while the Descendant represents our one-on-one partnerships, including marriage partners and business associates.
When progressed Venus makes an aspect to our AC/DC axis, we feel more sociable, attractive, and loving, which helps us attract partners into our lives. The same goes for when progressed Ascendant aspects one’s natal Venus. For example, I met my first boyfriend when progressed Venus was sextile my natal Ascendant.
Progressed Planets to 7th house ruler:
The ruler of your 7th house represents your closest personal relationships, and the type of people you attract is described by the condition of this planet. For example, the ruler of my 7th house is Gemini, so my 7th house ruler is Mercury. My Mercury is conjunct Neptune, so my relationships are very confusing and disorienting. Check the aspects and house placement of your 7th house ruler to learn more about the type of people you attract.
Progressed planets making as aspect to your 7th house ruler can signify a new relationship. The 7th house also represent marriage and commitment, so relationships started at this time have long-term potential.
Aspects to look out for:
Progressed Ascendant in aspect to your 7th house ruler
Progressed Sun in aspect to your 7th house ruler
Progressed Mercury in aspect to your 7th house ruler
Progressed Venus in aspect to your 7th house ruler
Progressed Mars in aspect to your 7th house ruler
Progressed Ascendant in aspect to your 7th house ruler
Outer planets tend to move more slowly. If you already have an aspect between an outer planet and your 7th house ruler in your natal chart, and the aspect is separating, keep an eye on the outer planet’s progressions. As the outer planet progresses, the aspect becomes stronger. I find the aspect is strongest when the progressed outer planet is within half a degree applying to half a degree separating.
Progressed Jupiter in aspect to your 7th house ruler
Progressed Saturn in *positive* aspect to your 7th house ruler
Progressed Uranus in aspect to your 7th house ruler
Progressed Neptune in aspect to your 7th house ruler
Progressed Pluto in aspect to your 7th house ruler
Progressed North Node in aspect to 7th house ruler
Progressed 7th house ruler in aspect to natal planets:
Your progressed 7th house ruler is also an effective way of timing love. Because the 7th house ruler represents the marriage partner, its progressed aspects and placement can indicate a new relationship coming into your life.
The progressed 7th house ruler in aspect to the natal 7th house ruler is also very positive. To explain, say you have natal Venus in retrograde in your 7th house. At some point in your life, your progressed Venus might change directions and return to its natal position. If your progressed Venus is conjunct your natal 7th house Venus, this is a good indication of love entering your life.
Progressed Venus to natal Sun (or prog. Sun to Venus):
This is one of the most reliable indications of the beginning of a major relationship. This is often the time when we meet the “love of our life”. This is also true of progressed Sun aspecting one’s natal Venus.
Both progressions indicate a time where we feel most attractive, and thus our powers of attraction are most potent. This is often the time we meet our marriage partner. Progressed Sun conjunct natal Venus or Progressed Venus conjunct natal Sun are classic love indicators.
Progressed Venus to natal Moon:
This progression brings about a loving relationship which is often characterised by feelings of dependency, mutual support, and emotional development. The conjunction, sextile, and trine bring generally pleasing, supportive contacts, while the square and opposition often bring resistance and adjustments in regards to the direction of your relationship. The same goes for progressed Moon to Venus contacts.
Progressed Venus to natal Mars:
This progression often brings about an intense, sexual union. Passion is at the forefront of your relationships. This can also indicate a time in which you meet the person you have children with.
Progressed Venus to Jupiter:
This progression often brings about partners from a foreign culture. Events like marriage are likely to take place during this progression. This also indicates a positive time for socializing and making new friends. The same goes for progressed Jupiter on one’s natal Venus.
Progressed Venus to Saturn:
This progression can bring about heavy commitments, and might bring relationships with older partners. This time is wonderful for beginning long-term relationships, such as marriage. This is especially true of Venus conjunct, sextile, or trine one’s natal Saturn.
In fact, my mother met my father when Venus was conjunct her natal Saturn. My father is 12 years older than my mother. The square and opposition tend to have the opposite effect; it is a time of loneliness and disconnect from others.
Venus has just moved one degree past squaring my natal Saturn, and I couldn’t be happier about it. The last few years have been incredibly unsuccessful in regards to love, my sense of loneliness increased greatly, and my social life was practically non-existent.
Progressed Venus to Uranus:
This progression brings different, exciting relationships into our lives. We reject convention and tradition under this influence, so this transit can also be an indication of separation from a partner in favor of a more exciting, yet unstable, relationship.
This is a time where your love life takes a “walk on the wild side” with someone different than what you’re used to. For example, your new mate could be from a different cultural background, or you may begin a long-distance relationship. Hard aspects between progressed Venus and Uranus are especially indicative of (sudden) separations.
Progressed Venus to Neptune:
This progression can indicate the time when you find your soul mate. Your sensitivity and compassion for others increases during this time, and you feel more open to love in general.
If the progression is a square or opposition, you may be deceived or disillusioned by a mate. The trine and sextile are generally positive times. Marriages often occur under this influence.
Progressed Venus to Pluto:
This progression awakens powerful emotions, and changes the way you approach love and sexuality, as well as intimacy. This is a time when we are attracted to the taboo and the forbidden, and this can manifest through our choice of partner (i.e. falling in love with an “unavailable” person), or through sex (exploring sexual taboos with one’s partner).
Relationships begun under this transit are marked by intensity, obsession, possessiveness, and power games. The sextile and trine are intense in a pleasing, manageable way, while the conjunction, square, and opposition can lead to extreme jealousy, obsession, and even sexual/financial exploitation or abuse.
Progressed planets in the natal 7th house:
Natal planets progressing into the 7th house indicate relationship changes. Sometimes, when a progressed planet enters the 7th house, the results are not immediate. Look at the aspects the progressed planet makes to your other progressed and natal planets while it is in the 7th house.
If a progressed planet in your 7th house makes an aspect to your natal 7th house ruler, or Venus, a significant relationship is likely coming your way. If negatively aspected, there may be relationship issues or negative experiences.
There are numerous ways of predicting the beginning of a relationship. One of the most reliable indications is when an outer planet (Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune or Pluto) makes an aspect to your natal Venus, the ruler of your 5th house, and/or the ruler of your 7th house. For this section, I will only refer to transits to natal Venus, but you can apply these transits to the ruler of your 5th and/or 7th houses, as well.
Please note: while transits to to Venus and the 7th house can indicate the beginning of a relationship, you also need to look at other indicators, such as progressions, to see how significant the relationship will be. You can read more about progressions in Part 2.
Outer planets transiting in aspect to your natal Venus (or the ruler of your 7th house): often indicate the beginning (or ending- depending on the transit) of a relationship. The planet transiting your Venus and the aspect that planet makes to your Venus will tell you what kind of relationship will come into your life. Let’s review the nature of the outer planets, and discuss the type of relationship that will enter your life when it makes an aspect to your natal Venus.
Jupiter transits your natal Venus | Jupiter transits your 7th house ruler
When Jupiter conjuncts, sextiles, trines, opposes, or squares your Venus or the ruler of your 7th house, your desire for a partner and loving feelings expand. Jupiter is the planet of abundance, good luck, and expansion. Jupiter thus expands your love sector during this time and increases your opportunities for romance. This is especially true for the conjunction, trine and sextile aspects. With the square and opposition, you may take foolish risks in love. While Jupiter transits, on their own, do not necessarily indicate the beginning of a long-term, life changing romance, it can indicate a positive time for dating and creating new social connections.
I do not think Jupiter-Venus aspects on their own are enough to bring love into your life, though. Other transits need to be in play
Saturn transits your natal Venus | Saturn transits your 7th house ruler
Saturn is the planet of restriction, realism, commitment, and hard work. When Saturn conjuncts, sextiles, or trines your natal Venus or 7th house ruler, you become more serious about settling down and are attracted to stable, mature relationships. Indeed, this is a very commitment-friendly transit because you are more attracted to long-term relationships.
Many people find themselves settling down or reinforcing commitments to their partners during this time. If you begin a relationship at this time, it is likely to be serious and long-lasting. Strong Saturn contact should show up in composite and synastry charts, and your partner is likely to have strong Saturn/Capricorn aspects in his/her chart.
Uranus transits your natal Venus | Uranus transits your 7th house ruler
When Uranus aspects your natal Venus or 7th house ruler by transit, you crave excitement in your relationships. Uranus often brings us non-traditional relationships/partners (i.e. partners from a different culture, background, etc.), which usually begin (and end) very suddenly. Timing Uranus transits is very simple, as events tend to occur at the time Uranus makes an exact aspect to your Venus (by exact, I mean the aspect is within 11 minutes of exact).
Uranus-Venus relationships are characterized as sudden, impermanent, non-traditional, and exciting. What usually happens is a sudden encounter with the “man/woman of your dreams”, and the native often experiences “love at first sight”. The energy between the two is electric and exciting, but not stable, and the relationship often lacks any real commitment. Uranus transits serve to jolt us awake through events that force us to throw out any previous behaviors or habits we tend to cling to.
This is especially true for emotionally clingy, needy people, or people who are inherently stable and afraid of change. Uranus relationships are difficult to control, and manipulative tactics are completely useless in getting what we want out of the relationship. The native must learn to “let go” of expectations and control, or he or she will suffer greatly from this transit.
Because Uranus is characterized by impermanence and excitement, many find that relationships begun under this influence often end when the initial spark fizzles and one of the partners gets bored and feels the need to move on.
Sometimes, when the transit is over, the native may say, “what was I thinking, being in that relationship?” due to the fact that partners are generally chosen for the fact that they are “different” and “exciting”, rather than suitable, which becomes more and more apparent as Uranus moves away from their natal Venus.
This period can also be marked by increased promiscuity on the part of the native. Uranus on one’s Venus increases one’s magnetism, so the likelihood of meeting several partners increases. A good friend of mine characterised her Uranus opposite Venus transits as: “Lots of one-night stands, and lots of partying.”
This is especially true with the conjunction, square and opposition. Sextiles and trines are generally more stable influences, but have that Uranian spark to them nonetheless. The partners you find under this transit are generally Aquarius or Uranian, or the syanstry or composite charts have strong Aquarian/Uranian influences.
Neptune transits your natal Venus | Neptune transits your 7th house ruler
When Neptune aspects your natal Venus or the ruler of the 7th house, your sensitivity and compassion towards others increases. Neptune represents delusion, illusion, dreams, addictions, and self-sacrifice. Under this influence, you are more likely to “see what you want” in partners, which can often lead to disappointment once the transit is over.
Under this transit, we are wearing rose-colored glasses; we see beauty in all people, and only want to think the best of them. This influence often brings a relationship into our lives, and we often believe this person is our soul mate. We idealize the person and make excuses for their faults, and ignore indications that the person is anything less than perfect. Relationship behaviors we would not normally approve of are now regarded as acceptable.
If the aspect is a conjunction, square, or opposition, the native must be extra careful to not over-idealize the partner and ignore red flags, as the threat of deception is strong. As Neptune moves away from Venus, the native becomes less enchanted by their mate; the native begins to see the person as they really are, which often leads to disappointment. The end of the transit can also manifest in the discovery of infidelity on the part of the partner; the native ignored red flags and made excuses for their partner’s behavior instead of facing the truth about the situation.
The partners you find under this influence are generally Piscean, or have strong Neptune in the chart. The Synastry and Composite charts generally have strong Neptune or Pisces aspects/placement.
Pluto transits your natal Venus | Pluto transits your 7th house ruler
When Pluto transits your natal Venus, you are no longer satisfied with superficial relationship; you want something deep, complex, and consuming. Pluto is the planet of “death”, therefore there is usually a death of some kind in regards to relationships (i.e. death of an existing relationship, death of previous relationship behaviours). For example this influence can also bring about an affair, or finding out one’s partner has been having an affair. This is a very “sexy” transit, and the attractions you have during this transit are often intense and obsessive, and sexual drives are generally strong.
Under this influence, you often meet a person with whom you have a life-changing and complex relationship. You feel magically drawn to this person, and might not understand why. This is because Pluto represents the unconscious, so your feelings for this person are generally the result of unconscious forces you find difficult to control. You might feel obsessed and possessive over this person, as Pluto brings an “all or nothing” energy to your relationships. Power struggles are thus common under this influence.
The physical component of the relationship is generally very strong; the need for physical closeness under this transit is intense. Pluto also represents the taboo, and the forbidden, so one is often attracted to unavailable partners under the influence of this transit (i.e. married, gay/lesbian, people from different areas). One thing this transit guarantees is personal evolution; we evolve through these relationships, as they uncover areas of our personalities we often keep hidden, and will teach you about personal intimacy. If partners separate, the passion and intensity they once shared is difficult to forget.
The relationships under this transit can also be financially or sexually exploitative, or even emotionally/sexually abusive, as Pluto represents domination, power, and control. The people you attract under this influence are generally Scorpio-like/Plutonian, and the synastry often reveals strong Pluto aspects and/or Scorpio placements.
Outer Planet Transits to the 7th house
Outer planets transiting your natal 7th house is another excellentindicator you will find love. The 7th house has to do with marriage and partnership, so when you are receiving a 7th house transit, you feel more open to partnership, and your powers of attraction are heightened.
Jupiter transits your 7th house
Jupiter transiting your 7th house indicates luck and abundance in your relationship sector. If you are single, you will have better luck finding a partner during this time. You will find more opportunities for love available to you. You might attract people from different cultures or Sagittarius people during this time.
Saturn transits your 7th house
Saturn transiting your 7th house can bring a serious and restrained air to your relationship sector, but can bring in a serious, committed relationship if the time is right. Look at how Saturn aspects your natal planets when it is transiting your 7th house. If it makes positive aspects to your natal Venus or 7th house ruler, this is a good sign. If you have planets in your 7th house which transiting Saturn will touch, there may be relationship changes at this time.
During this time, you are more likely to attract partners with whom you share a large age difference. You’re likely to attract Capricorn or Saturn-dominant people during this time.
Uranus transits the 7th house
Uranus transiting your 7th house can bring sudden, unpredictable relationships into one’s life. New exciting relationships may form, only to fall apart as quickly as they started. This transit will usually bring partners who are not your usual ‘type’. Anyways, I know a couple of people who met their marriage partners while Uranus was transiting their 7th house, so all relationships formed during this time are not doomed.
Look at how transiting Uranus will make aspects to your other natal planets, including Venus and your 7th house ruler, for more clues. You’re likely to attract Aquarius or Uranus-dominant people during this time.
Neptune Transits the 7th house
Neptune transiting your 7th house can bring in a relationship that feels like a dream come true. There is a feeling you have met your soulmate during this transit. It is very important to stay as realistic as possible in this relationship, for the threat of confusion and deceit can be high, depending on what aspects Neptune makes while transiting your 7th house.
If it makes a square to your natal Venus or the ruler of your 7th house, is is very important for you to see your partner and your relationship for what it really is. Be very clear with your intentions with each other. You’re likely to attract Pisces or Neptune-dominant people during this time.
Pluto transits the 7th house
Pluto transiting your 7th house brings intense, deep connections. Relationships become an obsession during this time, and you find yourself yearning for another half. You are likely to attract Scorpio or Pluto-dominant partners now, and the relationships you have will be transformative and all encompassing. Check how transiting Pluto aspects your natal planets while in your 7th house for more clues on timing.
Pluto transforms the house or planet it touches. So, if you are single, Pluto will bring new opportunities.
