Wedding Date Tutorial: The Time – Second Try

In our previous step we considered the relative strengths of a Friday, April 27, 2001 evening wedding for Kate and Malcolm. In this step we’ll look at charts for Saturday, April 28th, before 2:53 p.m. (when the Moon goes void of course).

We know our Saturday wedding will need to take place before 2:53 in the afternoon. Common sense tells us a ceremony that takes place as close as possible to 2:53 p.m. will end late enough that, with a little creative stalling, a nice early evening reception can take place. Since we run the chart for the moment the couple says “I Do”, let’s run the chart for 2:45 p.m. to see how that might look:

I was feeling pretty good about this chart — Sun in the cheery 9th house, Jupiter elevated, Venus in the 7th house — until I got down to the bottom and saw (aaaarrrgggghhhh!) Pluto and Mars in the 4th house!! No can do; the 4th house is too important as the descriptor of all that is cozy and domestic in a marriage to put those particular landmines in there. Back to the drawing board.

Backing up to 12:39 pm, Pluto and Mars are both out of the 4th house. In fact, it’s a pretty nice chart…except for Uranus, the Great Disruptor, in the house of marital accord. Let’s try again. > > >> The Time – Third Try
