Astrology of Love by the Sun Signs, The Basics

by Milky Way Maid

One of the perennial questions that astrologers get is how to make someone of a given sign fall in love with them, or how to keep them. How do I attract a Capricorn man? How do I keep an Aries?

There are certain principles that apply to all signs, of course. Be honest, be his best friend, support each other emotionally as well as financially. Astrologically, your moon signs should be compatible also; moons that square each other or oppose each other warn you that you may have too much friction to live under the same roof! Masculine and feminine planets should be conjunct or in harmonious aspect; for example Mars should be sextile, trine or conjunct Venus; the Sun or Ascendant should be conjunct, sextile or trine the Moon.

Some astrologers use the Arabic Part of Marriage to find out more about the nature of the marriage and if it will be auspicious or not. Calculate the Part of Marriage by adding the Ascendant and Seventh House cusp, then subtract the placement of Venus. (You can read a nice, clear description of two ways to do that, at

And if you have read any of the books by the Magi Society, then you are probably also aware that there are often contacts between the Chiron of one, with planets in the other's chart. Chiron does not always guarantee happiness; the Diana and Prince Charles marriage featured Chiron contacts, and we all know how that turned out.

OK, let's go to the specifics of sign by sign. The following applies not only to the Sun in these signs but Moon, Mars, Venus or Ascendant. Mars will apply more to the sports and other activities while Venus applies more to their values and love nature. Sometimes the Ascendant really expresses itself in the physical appearance, and sometimes more strongly in the personality.
