Predicting divorce and a little Ben and Jen

bena nd jen

I noticed Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner are in the tabloids again people are speculating for the 100th time after 10 years of marriage this time it is really over. Ben is off again on his own hitting the casinos, counting cards and enjoying some alone time. The man has the Moon in Scorpio (privacy) in his 5th house of gambling, betting and risk taking. This is his thing, will probably always be his thing no matter who he is with. The 5th house also rules sports and we all know he is a diehard Red Sox fan. No doubt he likely feels exposed when these reports surface, with Cancer Rising and the Scorpio Moon combined with all his planets below the horizon (in personal houses) and the only 2 planets above the horizon are in the 12th house of privacy this isn’t someone that wants to have his business out on front street. When I look at his synastry with Jennifer Gardner, I don’t see it. I don’t get it not on the paper in my hand and not when I see them. His feminine planets are in Scorpio and Cancer and the majority of her planets are in Gemini. Don’t get me wrong I never want to see him sprayed tan and emasculated standing beside Jennifer Lopez again but I don’t get this connection. Jen and Ben met when his progressed Moon was on his Descendent-when the progressed moon transits the 7th house it is likely you are ready for a relationship and Jens progressed Jupiter was conjunct her Descendent, she was also ready. But over the last several years while Saturn was in Scorpio Ben has had several hard transits to his Sun in Leo and Moon in Scorpio and once Saturn reenters Sagittarius it was pass over Gardners Gemini Moon, Venus and Mars. They won’t get a reprieve for a while.

The both of them also have Cancer Rising indicating they both have the same transits to houses for instance both of them now have Pluto digging its way through their 7th house of marriage and approximately 4 years from now they will have Saturn transiting their 7th. That can be the issue with having the same houses, who will be the partner to hold the others head above water if they are both drowning. When one is losing faith, it is likely so is the other! What’s that saying “the secret to a successful marriage is never falling out of love at the same time”. That is kind of hard to do when Pluto is knocking on both your doors simultaneously.

Hard times continue to be ahead for them and any relationship when you have outer planets (Saturn, Uranus, Pluto and Neptune) transiting the 7th house. But I don’t think divorce and break ups are an easy prediction. And I don’t think new astrologers should automatically assume divorce is a likely outcome when an outer planet enters a person’s 7th. After all people don’t necessarily stay married for some romanticized reason. Some people stay married for the children or in this case to avoid public scrutiny, some may stay together for the financial reasons…Bens Scorpio moon, Cancer rising and his Pluto in his natal 4th indicates he is very protective and dedicated to his family however dysfunctional that may be. Other couples stay together because the fear of the unknown is paralyzing. We do see this most with the fixed signs, Taurus, Scorpio, Leo and Aquarius and Ben Affleck has both, a fixed Moon and Sun. The natal potential of the individuals involved have to be taken into account. If for instance someone has natal Saturn conjunct Venus when Saturn transits their Venus this energy is familiar to them.

So instead of predicting the demise of a relationship lets prepare ourselves and others of what’s ahead

Saturn transits to Venus or through the 7th house

Shit or get off the pot, commit or quit, it’s now or never, for singles you want a permanent commitment. For married couples; love has become work. You are inundated with responsibilities-could be kids, could be career –could be you feel you are married to a nag. My ex said when Saturn was in his 7th house “if I knew marriage was going to be like a 2nd job I wouldn’t have done it” Marriage requires work when Saturn transits the 7th or your Venus. You may feel alone while married if you are single it is likely you feel lonely as well. Lessons in relationship, attracting karmic relationships, this brings huge tests. If your relationship is one that is rather dreamy and Neptunian Saturn’s visit to the 7th is like getting hit with a brick called reality

Uranus transits to Venus or through the 7th

Uranus is known as the planet of separation. I have seen this bring divorce, you want to be free, you have an affair, you are looking for excitement, you are searching for someone that is unconventional, you want to feel alive, you are smacked awake Singles attract Uranian types that are unlikely permanent. Married people may separate, or take on a side piece of ass. You can possibly divorce, or perhaps breathe new life into your partnership and/or redefine your relationship.

Pluto transits to the 7th

The superficial won’t do, digging deep, confronted with the darkest parts of your partnership all things Plutonian must be confronted, power struggles, secrets, the darkest parts of your relationship the stuff that lurks in the corner that you ignore demands to be confronted and only once you strip all the false pretense, dig deep to find your truth together and let go of all false pretense only then will your relationship die and be reborn. Survival is the theme, letting go of ego, of defining-what is-the ending of an era. For single people you attract Plutonian types, you become obsessed with someone unattainable, you get a stalker, you marry someone that wants to control your life, you long to discover the depths of someone. Either way the superficial will not do when Pluto enters your 7th house

Depositors in Synastry

there are all kinds of love in this world but never the same love twice

I was thinking about this quote lately I didn’t always believe it to be true; for a long time I think I had a very narrow idea of what love was. I tend to be very black in white in thought I bend towards extreme. But in synastry another person’s planets falling on your planets will never be exactly the same as someone else’s planets on your planets. Perhaps one person has their Sun and Mercury fall in your 8th house and with them you explore the depths of existence, sex is probably hot & intense. But someone else’s Sun and Mercury may fall in your 9th house and you will likely globe trot with them, maybe discuss philosophical and political beliefs maybe you share the same ideologies….things you probably never do with the person you have an 8th house overlay.

Everyone you meet influences you differently brings out parts of you that at times lay dormant without another person activating them. Remember someone’s planets on your planets act like a permanent transit. I know when I have 5th house overlays with someone I want to write like mad, listen to music , sing to them, my sense of creativity is expressed. The 5th house is home to romance and creative expression.
Of all the many ways we look at synastry the house overlays, the patterns of each individual and how they match up, I think we often over look the planet that rules the love planets; Venus (love, affection, finance, gifts, beauty, generosity) and Mars (ability to get along, passion, aggression, sex) In synastry we need to look at the planet that rules Venus, Mars and the ruler of the 7th house.
For instance I have Venus in Gemini love starts in the mind for me. I live for long conversations and banter I need to see how my Mercury (ruler of my Venus) is interacting with the other person’s Mercury. Our Mercury positions become very important. Mercury is considered to be the depositor of my Venus. It’s fine if my Venus in Gemini meets a man with Venus in Aquarius  yes they are both air signs, both love in a detached manner, both are ideas people, both  appreciate movement in love; both need an element of change & to feel free in love. On a superficial level that’s great but you need to take it a step further; my Mercury is in Cancer, if that man with Venus in Aquarius also has his Mercury  in Aquarius (been there done that) my intuitive, protective Mercury isn’t going to jive with that Mercury in a freedom seeking air sign. Mercury in an air sign is analytical whereas my Mercury in a water sign communicates a lot nonverbally via intuition and non-verbal cues. It’s important for me to find someone that’s Mercury goes well with mine because Mercury is the depositor of my Venus.

The ruler of the 7th house in astrology is said to be the part of you that you are searching for, you are the Ascendant whereas the 7th house cusp is your partner. Your 7th house ruling planet should match well with another person’s 7th house ruling planet. For instance I have Leo on the 7th house cusp so the Sun rules my 7th house  now let’s say I meet a man with Aries rising ; Libra will be on his 7th house cusp Venus is his ruling planet. It’s very important that his 7th house ruler (Venus) and my 7th house ruler (the sun) meet via a pleasing aspect such as a trine, sextile, or conjunction.

I hope I explained that ok; astrology has so many layers and synastry has even more..
