For several years running on TV there is a children's show called "Who is the best?". Children under 7 years of age have the opportunity to express themselves – any way they can. One day I saw the show and I sat down to watch it. A man was asking all children the following question - "What do you want to be when you grow up?". Most girls answered that they wanted to become princesses. And the boys answered almost anything else but princes. Isn’t that funny!? Girls can become princesses only if they find a prince and no boy wanted to be a prince.
Why am I telling you this? Because every woman dreams of seeing herself in a white wedding dress, to become a princess. Men are not quite such enthusiasts when it comes to weddings, although they look for a mate as well. But it is interesting for one to ponder what is the role of marriage in both sexes.
Today's topic is marriage according to the horoscope. Undoubtedly this is the top or I would even say the Number One topic in every woman's life. In men it is not as highly active in their minds, but as the saying goes "even if he has a good life, every man gets married eventually”. The difference in attitudes to marriage between men and women is rooted in a genetic "coding" by gender. But this is not the purpose of my article.
When analyzing a horoscope, people are always interested in the following questions: Will I get married? When? Would it be good? How many marriages will I have?
The individual horoscope can give an answer to these questions. I will concentrate on the number of marriages. Whether there will be a marriage, will there be only one, or more. Now, I want to mention that love and marriage are two categories of life that do not necessarily overlap. For some people the beautiful love becomes a horrible marriage and with others the reverse occurs - the tough love turns into a beautiful marriage. And with others the same things are kept - the quality of love, follows them into the marriage as well. It all depends on the specific pattern of relationships embedded in each of us. According to this model, we maintain our intimate, love and marriage relationships.
The components of our marriage model are few. When I say “marriage model” I mean what resources we have for granted regarding marriage: if there will be a marriage, how it will develop, whether there will be a divorce, adultery, and how many marriages there will possibly be. Since the definition of these components is dynamic, i.e. it depends on the individual horoscope and the planets are usually different for different people, I will focus mainly on two of them - the Sun and the Moon. Those two planets always have a connection to marriage in the horoscope since they themselves bear the archetype man/woman.
Marriage in modern days has two dimensions - legal and the one that has not undergone any religious or civil ceremony. This second type I would not call it illegal because it is such only in terms of some public social norms that undergo constant change. From an astrological point of view it is not illegal because astrology considers marriage under the laws of nature, not the manners and customs of different peoples and social laws established by them. However, there are factors in the horoscope that affect the "legality" of marriage according to societal mores. Just for information I will mention that one factor is the position, strength and status of the planet Jupiter in the individual horoscope. Jupiter has many meanings, one of which is associated with religion, ceremonies and laws. And if the planet has no special "power" over the marital components, the specific person will not strive for legitimacy, especially a ceremonial one.
What is the role of the Sun and Moon, when it comes to how many marriages we will have or if we will have one at all? The Sun is the determining factor in a woman's horoscope chart and the Moon in the male one. Here I will add that in the female horoscope the Moon is also important in terms of intimacy and marriage. And notice what happens. For women the Sun and the Moon have equal importance. While for the men, the major role is played by the Moon. This describes the roles of men and women in our world very well. It also describes sexual discrimination, which continues to exist to this very day, even if it is more disguised.
In a public and social context, marriage for women is often their primary role. While marriage for men, is not such an important part of their expression in society. This is why the topic of marriage is essential for women. They give priority to it because marriage is the most easily accessible way for them to "succeed", to apply the solar energy given to them. For men, marriage is not a means to "succeed" except when it comes to reproduction.
As a general rule it is inferred that if the Moon in the horoscope of a man and the Sun in the horoscope of a woman are in the signs Gemini, Sagittarius or Pisces, the likelihood of more marriages is increased. What causes this specificity? In the Zodiac, there are three signs, which are made of two bodies and are called dual body signs. These are: Gemini - the image includes two human figures, Sagittarius - a centaur image, half man-half horse and Pisces - the image includes two fish. And if we find the Sun or Moon in one of these signs, it is believed that the man or woman tend to have more than one marriage or maintain two relationships simultaneously.
