In our previous step we managed to narrow the time frame for Kate and Malcolm’s wedding date to five beneficial dates:
- Friday, April 27th after 12:49 p.m.
- Saturday, April 28th before 2:53 p.m.
- Saturday, May 5th before 11:03 p.m.
- Sunday, May 20th after 10:29 a.m.
- Friday, May 25th
The next factor for you to consider is the aspects the Moon will make before it leaves its sign. Why is this important? Because a wedding chart will symbolically continue to unfold (as we follow progressions in a natal chart) as long as the marriage lasts…and often afterward! The moon, as the fastest moving body in the wedding chart, symbolizes how things will progress on a day to day level in the marriage. If the moon will make a number of fractious aspects between the time of the wedding and the time the moon enters a new sign, what we end up with is a marriage full of day to day disruption that can be quite hard on the nerves, and subsequently undermine the relationship.
Let’s look at the moon’s aspects for the dates we’ve elected as most beneficial for Kate and Malcolm’s wedding:
Looking at the Moon’s aspects on May 20 and 25, I think it would be best to eliminate both dates, don’t you? That leaves us with (drum roll, please):
Friday, April 27
(after the Moon square Venus aspect at 5:20 p.m.)
Saturday, April 28, before 2:53 p.m.
Saturday, May 5, before 11:03 p.m.
