The Zodiac and Marriage

Disclaimer: with astrology, it is possible to decipher our behaviour or to get a glimpse of the future. This is a theory which cannot be systematically tested. On the other hand, one may wish to follow an easier path, which puts into practice the principles listed in astrology textbooks. In a way, this is precisely the type of practical exercises that we suggest in this Lifestyle column.

We recommend that you follow our advice with both a light and observing mind. Beyond entertainment, the aim is to understand how each of us behaves in various fields; thus, we can better define and fathom, by deduction, how we have developed our natal predispositions. In addition, why wouldn't we be able to guess the talent(s) which we could harness in the future, according to our astrological profile.

The following information is given for signs in their purest form. Depending on the case, it is advisable that you check your planetary dominant or the sign of your Ascendant, the position, quality and aspects of the significators of the area involved, and if applicable, the position of the planets associated with it. For instance, for family affairs, examine the 4th House and its ruler, as well the Moon; for romance, examine the 5th House and its ruler, as well as Venus, etc.

The large number of books we have read, and more particularly, the experience we have drawn from the study of thousands of charts, urge us to be cautious. However, we thought that it may be interesting to provide a few concrete indications, which will turn out to be accurate, quite often.

Aries, Aries rising, Mars dominant, or strong 1st House

Marriage for Aries, Aries rising, Mars dominant, or strong 1st House

This is typically a decision which must be carefully thought over. You are absolutely able to rush to the altar on impulse. One may wonder if the Las Vegas-style concept has not been invented for you.

Furthermore, you are the all or nothing type. For instance, you may vilify this institution for years and suddenly become an apostle of marriage.

Having said this, you deem that the ceremony should be limited to the basics: two witnesses, a registrar, maybe a few friends or, in any case, just the family you have created for yourself.

You do not want anything fancy. You may choose a very simple dress, and even the bare minimum demanded by social conventions if you are a male. You are not too interested in feasts either. However, you are likely to dance the whole night away!

Since each planet also rules a House – sometimes two houses – you may want to also look at charts having a strong 1st House.

Taurus, Taurus rising, Venus dominant, or strong 2nd House

Marriage for Taurus, Taurus rising, Venus dominant, or strong 2nd House

Do you visualise correctly the country-style party? The bride wears in her hair a garland of roses, fresh ones of course, in addition to a magnificent bouquet. The groom looks great, seemingly relaxed and dressed like a gentleman farmer. This is, in your head, what the beautiful pair you form for your wedding must look like. Indeed, it is true that you think of it quite a long time before going to the registry office.

Once you are certain your commitment can last your lifetime, you insist that everything is organised according to the tradition. Besides, you are delighted at the prospect of experiencing a festive and warm moment, sharing emotions, eating fine food, listening to music, and singing. Is it necessary to add that elaborating the menu will be the object of your loving care?

Marriage for Gemini, Gemini rising, Mercury dominant, or strong 3rd House

A perpetual adolescent, regardless of your real age, you are ready to get married in jeans. Nonconformism is in any case a key condition to accept to tie the knot.

You used to believe a priori that this commitment was rather for your parents, or even your ancestors. But it happens that, under the spell of a burst of romanticism – after all, you are looking for your soul mate – you too decide to get married.

However, it is out of the question to go through a host of constraints and their inherent risks. You are unwilling to invite your nagging aunt or your doting father-in-law. The ceremony is likely to be an informal gathering with friends, with DJ, and with drinks in abundance.

As for the wedding banquet, it is probably pot luck... It is just to share a nice moment, and perhaps to make offbeat speeches, with your legendary humour...

If you were not shy, you would advocate the cause of marriage. In a soft voice, you sometimes enumerate the one thousand and one delights of this institution which has proved its worth. You definitely believe in it, and publicly declaring your faith in the other one moves you deeply.

Your dream is to answer "I do" in an American movie-style, at home. The bride would arrive holding her father’s arm. She would wear the good luck charms required by the tradition: something new, something ancient – often lent by Mummy – and something blue. Just to give yourself the best chances. As for the groom, there is no danger that he changes his mind before taking the oath.

Let’s not forget that a Cancer marriage always involves floods of tears. Therefore, tell your friends and relatives to bring their supplies of handkerchiefs. And to finish, throw your bouquet to your female guests...

To find a model of wedding, you look at what is practiced by the Windsors or the Monacos. They give you interesting ideas...

The ceremony must impress. Carefully selected guests are warned that the dress code is to be fully respected. Your witnesses must look elegant... but less that the bride – incomparable, please – or the groom. Their attire is designed by posh couturiers. Above all, there is a diamond as big as the Ritz.

The setting matches your megalomania in this special day. Depending on your budget, choose a palace or an estate having something magic.

You are cautious regarding the budget (oh yes!). You check the quality-price ratio like for any ordinary contract, you who are so reasonable.

You are most unlikely to splurge on a wedding gown, worn once only, or on a rapidly swallowed feast, in your opinion. What is important to you is to legalise a commitment, to spend a moment when your faith and your trust are shared with a small group of friends and relatives who are close to you.

Although your approach may be too rational, it has the virtue of being a lasting one, because it will not be difficult for you to get back to your daily routine, once you have said "I do".

Why are you getting married? With your taste for mystery, it is possible that even your friends and relatives had suspected nothing, and that you secretly enjoy keeping the reasons unexplained. They are yours exclusively, but it is most likely that you have decided to commit yourself stirred by passion and not by reason.

Given your strong personality, your marriage must be an outstanding one. You may opt for provocation, wear gothic attire or even forget the usual ceremony and get a guru who can bring in some mystical dimension.

If it is about being with the people you appreciate, celebrating, feasting, and dancing, then, you are ready to take the plunge.

At times, influenced by a dash of vanity, you get carried away, and you look at everything on a large scale. Ideally, you would welcome your guests in a palace, and you would spend lavishly, including for your own attire. Moreover, you try to give the ceremony a spiritual meaning, whether it is in a church or in a Buddhist temple.

Marriage for Capricorn, Capricorn rising, Saturn dominant, or strong 10th House

Serious, faithful, and respectful of traditions, it is obvious that you have nothing against marriage. However, you avoid it for years, saying that you need to be sure that you have found the right person.

Because you are quite a loner, and your career is your main concern, you may take your time. But once you make up your mind, you carefully organise a ceremony which reflects your decision.

You often prefer some sort of formalism, such as going to the registry office wearing an elegant but discreet suit. The friends and relatives you invite belong to your inner circle. You do not need much to have an enjoyable wedding.

Marriage for Aquarius, Aquarius rising, Uranus dominant, or strong 11th House

Since you are a partisan of common-law relationships, why would you get married? Well, this can nonetheless happen, and to explain why, you may find excellent arguments which have nothing to do with social traditions.

For instance, you may get married as a reaction to a boho family which has upset you by criticizing your commitment. You may also say “I do” to a much older or younger person, from a different religion or skin colour.

One might as well say that you are militantly in favour of gay marriage, and that nothing shocks you as good or bad reasons. On the contrary, it is conformism which scandalises you.

After having done strictly what is necessary on the formal point of view, you revel in an improvised party, with frenzy and music through the night.

A little romantic mermaid or a 21st century troubadour, poetry is a must for your wedding.

You may be even more excited if there is a religious ceremony instead of a civil one only, because you are engaging in a spiritual and symbiotic relationship.

In everyday life, trivial things bring tears in your eyes. Therefore, imagine the impact of such a special day! An aesthete, you are willing to give it a magic meaning.
