Also called Electional or inceptional Astrology.
Electional Astrology is about picking out the right date(s) for a specific event to take place, such as a wedding or the start of a business. Inceptional Astrology is very similar but is more so about the birth of an event, such as a first meeting chart. You can find more about event charts Here
First Meeting Chart
A chart that’s cast for the first meeting between two people ; in person. A virtual meeting is not the same, the birth of the connection only takes place once you meet one another in the flesh. The first meeting chart shows the purpose and course of the relationship, the highlighted themes and potential for success.
It’s the same as a birthchart : calculated by date, time and place. However the way of reading such chart is a little bit different.
The chart can be used as a separate entity, that means transits can be applied onto such. If something happens to the relationship, tight and hard aspects are likely to indicate that to the first meeting chart. This event chart is often more sensitive to planetary influences, than the composite chart.
You can also calculate solar return charts, progressions and solar arc.
It’s the fastest moving planet, and most important.
Applying aspects from the Moon to other planets, show the future.
Separating aspects from the Moon to other planets, show the (recent) past.
If the Moon is in an applying harmonious aspect to Mars, it’s an indicator that the two of you might end up having sex that same day, in case of a romantic meeting. If the Moon is separating from Saturn it shows you were very anxious, insecure or nervous before meeting.
Any time when the Moon is conjunct to an angle, one is likely to feel deeply emotional, or tears may roll.
Any time the Moon sits in an angular house, it shows an emotional involvement, but not to the point of crying. more so a heart to heart contact.
|Separating aspects : Expectations you had before or at the time of meeting, the (recent) past
First applying aspect : Kickstart of the relationship
Last applying aspect : outcome, how it ends (in 3 months, unsure about this information)
New Moon : Not favorable, brings about secrecy or hidden matters
Full Moon : Best for mature relationship, intensity, peak
Full/New Moon : Wait 12 hours, unfavorable times
Waxing Moon : Ideal for growth, things that increase (better than waning)
Waning Moon : Completion, things that decrease
Void of course : Nothing will happen, timing is off, failure, no results, abandonment
Moon sign : Emotional nature of the relationship, emotional environment that’s created
Cardinal sign : The joy won’t continue, this also applies to Venus
Combust : Linked to death, unfavorable, things won’t go as planned
Angular house : Important meeting, emotional involvement
In 1st house : Unfavorable, can show emotional meeting
Aspects for relationship : Venus, Sun
Aspects for sexual relationship : Mars, Pluto
Aspects for business : Mercury, Saturn
Moon conjunct MC : Lover, meeting of emotional impact
Squares : Friction, differences, tension, emotional dissatisfaction (long term)
Opposition : Separative forces, differences
Applying to RX planet : restriction, delay, obstacle, not running smoothly
The Moon = The beginning of endeavor
Depositor of the Moon = The outcome
The ascendant is the second most important to consider for this shows whether the timing was right. When the ascendant is in the early degrees of a sign, it’s possible that it may not last, or it may turn out different than expected. With the late degrees, the meeting has a karmic load and likely took place to finish a karmic debt.
The later the degree, the more ‘urgency’ there is to meeting, especially in the last decan of a sign.
|• In early degree 0-2° : Unfamiliar, timing was not right yet, turning points ahead, “too soon”, too enthausiast
• In late degree 27-29° : Situation won’t last or won’t be significant, finishing off karma, “too late”
• 15° Libra to 15°Scorpio : “Via combusta”, unpredictable, “too hot” (also not favorable for the Moon)
• ASC sign : Shows theme of the outcome
Cardinal sign = Lots of action, new beginnings, to initiate something
Mutable sign = Movement, changes, a journey
Fixed sign = Long lasting, things that are/get stuck
Retrograde ASC ruler = Changing dynamic over time
The Ascendant represents :
Shared outlook of the couple, the character of the relationship
The face of the couple, the dominant party
The Descendant represents :
The one that follows, the supportive one in the relationship
The strength and dignity of both ASC & DSC ruler show which party is most dominant in the relationship.
In electional astrology for Marriage :
The ASC, the ruler, the Sun and the planet from which the Moon last separated = Husband/man
The DSC, the ruler, the Venus, the planet t which the Moon applies next = Wife/woman
The IC, the ruler, planets in 4th, planets that aspect the IC or the ruler = events at the end of marriage
ASC signs in Marriage election & event charts :
Aries : Unfavorable
Taurus : 0-19° favorable, 20-29° unfavorable
Gemini : 0-15° favorable, 16-29° unfavorable
Cancer : Unfavorable, good when marrying a widow
Leo : Favorable, one party may deceive the other
Virgo : Unfavorable, good when marrying a widow, until death
Libra : Unfavorable
Scorpio : 0-15° favorable, 16-29° unfavorable
Sagittarius : Neutral
Capricorn : 0-10° unfavorable, 11-28° favorable, good for marrying a widow
Aquarius : Unfavorable
Pisces : Favorable
Significators in Marriage chart :
Jupiter in a feminine sign + Venus in masculine sign = beneficial marriage for wife
Jupiter in masculine sign + Venus in feminine sign = beneficial marriage for husband
This indicates the general nature of the relationship. A good example is when two people who were formally into a long distance relationship, met in real life for the first time. The Sun was in Sagittarius, which perfectly described the two people being foreigners to each other. The Sun can show what you’re likely to deal with during this relationship.
• The purpose of the relationship
|Sun :Physical attraction, assertiveness, anger, active, the self, personality, impressive, drive, impulsive.
Dealing with physical vitality, ego, independence, competition, dominant people, passions
|Sun : Slow, lover, materials, money, sensatory, investing.
Dealing with finances, the senses, food, physical nourishment, possessions, objects, the concept of stability
|Sun : Travel, communication, fun, learning, documents, studying, exchange, picking brains, superficial.
Dealing with neighbors, visitors, young people, documents
|Sun : Home, family, comfort, memory, introspection, property, support.
Dealing with emotions, personal needs, family dynamics and matters, security, the past
|Sun : Children, pleasure, expression, eroticism, creativity, self development, sexuality, act from the heart
Dealing with desires, self-expression, children, creative development, business
|Sun : (Mental) Health, routines, animals, doctors/assistant, service, help, planning (ahead), discussing
Dealing with tasks, reality, health problems (mental/physical), the way you organize your life
|Sun : Lover, romance, business, public, beauty, cooperation, official endeavors, social, seeking harmony

Dealings with fears, intensity, personal struggles, private matters, sexual organs/diseases, inheritances and money of others, power conflicts

Dealing with humanitarian needs, changes, organizations, seeking creative solutions, manifesting ideas
|Sun : Charity, emotional, artistic, spiritual, healing, benefits, (mental) health
Dealing with the subconscious mind, fantasy and the development of such, escapism tendencies, flexibility, dreams
The sign that rules over a specific house, can show what’s involved, the flavor and attitude towards the matters of that house. For example Leo on the 9th house cusp, can show that foreign matters create drama in the relationship, or that the heart wants to travel and explore.
Cancer of the 8th cusp can show financial support, a need for closeness, or to share a home together.
Scorpio on the 12th cusp can shows deep secrets that relate to trauma, things that are deeply embedded into the soul, financial matters or fears that are kept secret.
The Sun and Moon
The Sun (male archetype) and the Moon (female archetype), can indicate what a person was mostly focused on, what they went through, prior to meeting. Any planet that’s conjunct either Sun or Moon shows the type of efforts or events.
Such as Sun conjunct Mercury shows one to be focused on documents or travel plans. Sun conjunct Mars shows one that was independent or fighting for a case. Moon conjunct Southnode shows one to be focused on the past, stuck in a pattern or experienced loss.
If this is a meeting between man and woman, you can look at Sun for the man and Moon for the female. In case this is a meeting between two people of the same gender than apply the Sun to the one who is most dominant and masculine, whereas the Moon suits the more nurturing and feminine type.
Hard aspects between Sun and Moon, such as the square and opposition, give friction. The two of you may not get along after a while, or the differences come to the surface and create challenge. In essence it means the male and female archetypes don’t cooperate harmoniously.
For a relationship, it’s beneficial to have either one of these :
• Harmonious aspect between Sun-Moon
• Harmonious aspect between Venus-Mars
• Harmonious aspect between rulers of 1st-7th
• Luminaries preferably a the top half of the chart
Planets on the Angles
The angles are incredibly sensitive, any planet on an angle adds weight to the overall theme of the relationship.
It shows the themes of the first meeting, but also shows potential issues on the long haul.
For example : Lilith conjunct the descendant may point to one doing hat they want without considering the feelings of the other. It can show a rebellious union or two people that seem to trigger each others wounds constantly. But it may also show a therapeutic union, able to unveil any mechanisms and masks that one hides behind.
|MC = Shared mission, goals and purpose, that what dominates the relationship
ASC = Shared outlook, the meeting, the person that initiates, the dominant figure
DSC = The one who follows, the supporter
IC = Deep structures and foundation of the relationship, “end of the matter”
• Benefic on the angle : Important relationship, influential contact
• Any planet on an angle : Important influence, flavor of that planet influences the contact
• Node : Shows a fated/karmic meeting, important, turning point
• Saturn : A meeting that could bring obstacles, hardship, breaking away
• Venus : Romantic feelings, artistic, harmony, balance, cooperation, social
• Jupiter : Truth, wisdom, growth, enhancement, healing, exploration, gains, travel
• Sun : Male figure, intimidating, creative, expressive
• Moon : Emotionally involved, nurturing, tears, homely, subjectivity
• Pluto : Sexual themes, transformation, difficulty, change
• Uranus : Change, unpredictable, unstable, new ideas
• Lilith : Feminine energy, vulnerability, sexuality, powerful, someone you find intimidating, nervous
• Chiron : Vulnerability, wound, healing, a lack, insecurity
Benefics in Eastern half (left) of the chart = Beneficial for husband
Benefics in Western half (right) of the chart = Beneficial for wife
Consider sect to determine which planets is most powerful in the chart. By ‘benefit’ it means who wins the most, who is mostly pampered for example. I’ve seen Benefics on the Eastern half in a marriage event chart where the husband was treated like a king, but this was at the cost of the wife’s happiness. In another first meeting chart the benefics were at the Western half, and it was the girlfriend whom gained the most from the relationship. This doesn’t always mean material matters, but can apply to profound experiences and events.
These show some delay or struggle. It’s hard to get the full benefit from the planet, this also applies to the house the retrograde planet rules. For example, a retrograde ascendant ruler may show that the relationship will endure some challenge and struggle, one may not fully give themselves or the relationship doesn’t blossom optimally. A lot more effort is required if you wish this relationship to succeed. If it’s the 3rd house ruler, it can shows communication issues or things related to documents that are delayed or incomplete. Also consider the planetary essence, such as Venus represents love, finances and values, Mars represents sex, drive and projects, Jupiter represents travel, opportunities and prosperity, Mercury represents documents, communication (style) and decisions, and so on.
The areas of life that are ruled by the planets in mutual reception, support one another, there is a tight linkage between them. If one is retrograde, there is lack of support. You may want to but circumstances don’t allow to.
• 1-7axis : most important, a benefic in these houses are favorable
• 1-5-7 : most important houses to check for a love relationship ; need to be well placed & aspected
• Dignities of the house rulers : The rulers of 1-7 should be strong for a favorable outcome
• Planets in angular houses : show outside conditions, how others see the relationship
• Venus/Jupiter : Best in angular house
• Mars/Saturn : Best in cadent house
Although it’s beneficial to have a positive planet in the 7th house, Venus in 7th does not mean that this meeting will evolve into a romantic relationship. It may revolve around arts, beauty, fashion, or you may want to cooperate with this person.
I found that when Venus is placed in a succedent house, the relationship does not evolve properly. An angular Venus usually indicates a good contact, something positive which can point to a constructive interaction with the person or a good friendship that may grow out of this.
Every planet has a sign in which they feel uncomfortable or lose their strength, but the other way around too, in which a Planet becomes strong such as Jupiter in Cancer, Moon in Taurus,…
A well dignified planet tends to be a strong theme or binding factor in the relationship. Such as Mars in Aries can show a strong sexual desire. Jupiter in Pisces shows optimism and joy, or Jupiter in Cancer shows expansive experiences that are hear felt, and so on..
More about dignities
• Fall, exaltation : Lack of energy, motivation, won’t go as planned
• Dignity of 1-7 ruler : shows interest and attraction
Responsible for fated/karmic meetings, whenever they are conjunct to an angle it shows a very important meeting that may act as a turning point.
When the Moon is in aspect with the Nodes it shows the same.
If Venus is conjunct to a Node it can show karmic romance, but this can also point to a (shared) journey of mutual support and one that helps to better or heal your self-esteem.
• Southnode : considered unfavorable
• Northnode : considered lucky
The house placement of the Northnode shows for what purpose you meet. Northnode in the 7th does not mean a romantic relationship, but the contact may revolve around others and the theme of relationships.
|self-awareness, encouragement, initiation, individuality, what you want, increasing personal power
|your needs, reliability, stability, awareness of the senses
|interaction, the need to share and learn. Communicating for enhancement, learning to distinguish, environmental awareness, analyzing, facts, tidbits, superficiality, learning to communicate, the practical side of things
|inner foundation, home, defining safety, deepfelt, emotional, from the soul, subjectivity, (at) home
|arts and expression, meeting to design or create something, identity, learning your needs and wants, learning to open your heart, seeking truth of individuality
|health related matters, the need to rearrange and structure your life. Back to reality, (seeking) diagnosis, self-consciousness, practical approach, habits, to better understand reality, to see things in practice, considering the practical side of life, bringing things into the tangible realm
|cooperation, something official, learning about relationships and balance, self discovery through another, people pleasing dynamics, shadow self, to better understand a partner or an ex
|learning to share, vulnerability, intimacy, transcending material plane, trauma, inner psyche
|Learning, teaching, expansion, discovery, joy, adventurous, spontaneous, intuitiveness, to publish something, to achieve a certain purpose or dream, to expand your knowledge, to find truth
|official matters, to bring something into the world, to be recognized, new begin, inspiration for career, understanding your coping mechanisms, relating on a professional level, increase personal potential, to better understand your goals and mission
|friendship, relating, stimulating ideas and perspective, discovery, team, humanitarian, community, individuality, innovative, togetherness
|spiritual matters, the need to dive within, transcending reality, (shared) isolation, serenity, healing a past wound, to find closure, to be given the time to recover, introspection
Northnode conjunct the ascendant is about a profound contact, the merging of two, deeply fated and karmic in nature. You may have been nervous during the meeting, the same applies to the Northnode conjunct the descendant. The difference is that conjunct ASC it points to the development of each individually, conjunct the DSC it points to a necessary relationship or an important cooperation.
Any time Northnode is conjunct an angle, will likely point to nervousness. It amplifies what that point stands for.
ASC = The self and development, inner importance
IC = Inner foundation, emotional perception, inner importance
DSC = Relationship, cooperation, official matters
MC = Business, recognition, work, official matters
• Aspects : effect on growth of the relationship
Whatever planets make an exact aspect to each other, will add more flavor to the meeting and the outcome of it.
This also applies to the angles or Nodes.
If Mars is sextile to the ASC it shows a strong possibility for a sexual meeting.
If Venus is sextile to the ASC is shows a strong possibility for romance and love.
• Tightest aspect : Influential strength
Applying aspects to Part of fortune favor the outcome of the meeting.
It’s useful to consider the degrees of the angles as well as the (personal/inner) planets to gain deeper insight and understanding of the event chart. Such as a first meeting chart when Venus is at 1 degree Scorpio could signify permanent love or long term love. This is seen by the Love degrees for example, but there are many other ways to check the meaning of the degrees which you can find on this page under the section ‘degrees’ : Click here
The anaretic degrees 0° & 29° are not favorable.
|Unfamiliar, unseen or unexpected, something is unknown, needs a lot of work, a student, journey of learning, pure traits of the sign are expressed, original experiences
|Crisis, amplified theme, urgency, mastery, karmic debt or circumstances, taking risks, exaggeration, neglect in worst case, whirlwinds, contrast
|Full engagement, prominent, activity, importance
Any planet, angle or house cusp that’s in the midst of a sign, adds importance to the over all dynamic and purpose of the relationship. For example Uranus at 14° Taurus shows differences in values. Mars at 15° Libra can show poor sexual issues, problems related to shared projects, problems in decision making. 9th house cusp at 16° Aries has been found in a chart where the husband had an affair in a foreign land.
Consider the house and sign placement too, such as a cardinal sign will show a lot of action and activity, sometimes it can point to egoism and impulsive decisions.
Every chart has an emphasis onto a particular element, sometimes it’s more then one. However, this also influences the nature of the relationship.
Fire = passionate, active, spiritual, fast, intuitive, expansive, creative
Earth = stability, materialistic, practicality, solid nature, to define things, slow, values
Air = intellectual, communicative, exchange of thoughts, detached, changing nature
Water = emotional, nourishment, introspective, unconditional, careful, security
As the event chart, or first meeting chart, symbolizes the birth of a relationship, it also means that transits and progressions are applicable. Anything that you produce as a couple or partnership, will involve this chart. Whether it be the purchase of real estate, starting a business together, marriage, childbirth, dispute,…
For example, in the event chart of a married couple, the sexual dynamic changed drastically once progressed Mars changed signs. The outlook and attitude of the husband, changed once progressed Jupiter moved into the next sign.
This type of chart can be used in various predictive methods, that means you cast a solar return for each year of the relationship. What’s also interesting is that you can use it in astrocartography in case a couple decides to move abroad or to stay in some place for a vacation. By astrocartography it will show how it affects the relationship dynamic.
Influence on Birthchart
The first meeting chart could explain more what the flavor is of the meeting, but it’s advised to also compare the event chart to your natal chart, as they are just a snapshot of the transits at the time of meeting.
Check if there are any conjunctions to your natal planets, especially if it’s a conjunction to one of the angles or the Nodes, than it’s a double signification for an important meeting. Keep in mind that the impression and meaning is different for each individual.
An example is a chart where the Moon is trine to the Northnode, whilst the Moon is conjunct to the MC and in an applying sextile to Mars. This indicates a fated and emotional meeting that results into sex. When compared to one of the individual’s their birthchart, Venus was exactly conjunct the Northnode, indicating karmic romance. And the flavor is sex. wink wink.
Some examples :
Mars semisextile to Venus = A huge age gab between the two people
Moon sextile Mars = Had sex soon after meeting
Moon square Uranus = Explosive beginning, unstable after a while
Moon conjunct Uranus = Nervous prior to meeting (separating aspect)
Moon trine Neptune = Telepathic connection, two people able to sense one another
Moon square Sun = Individual differences, friction between man and woman
Asc ruler in 1st = came together to improve self and outlook on life, things related to own attitude
Asc ruler in 2nd = came together for improving self-esteem and resources, things related to personal belongings
Asc ruler in 4th = came together for property (buying), things related to residence
Asc ruler in 6th = came together for work related matters, things related to personal reality
Asc ruler in 7th = came together to figure out partnership, to seek harmony, things related to union
Asc ruler in 9th = came together to find deeper meaning and truth, things related to growth and perspective
Asc ruler in 10th = came together to better understand purpose, direction of life, things related to career
Planetary influences onto the event chart
The following are some of my observations.
Solar eclipse conjunct Ascendant/Northnode = the direction of the relationship changed, one going their own way
Transit Saturn conjunct Northnode = break up, painful circumstances, disappointment
Transit Northnode conjunct Venus = a secret affair came to the surface
Lunar eclipse conjunct Saturn = painful heartbreak, cutting ties
Transit Saturn conjunct Jupiter (ASC ruler) = new responsibility, long term investments, purchase of real estate
Transit Saturn conjunct Moon = one being on the edge, deep depression, taking responsibility for one’s well being
Transit Uranus square Moon (3rd ruler) = sudden shocking news
Jupiter return = finalizing the divorce
Transit Chiron conjunct MC = finalizing the divorce
Transit Uranus conjunct Mercury (3rd ruler/Sun) = contractual break
Half nodal return = the repressed coming to the surface, acting upon past/neglected desires, drastic change of course
Transit Saturn conjunct Pluto = the beginning of a major karmic event
Transit that involves a double whammy with Uranus = sudden sight, meeting unexpectedly (after the breakup)
I caught my eye that conjunctions to the nodes, or vice versa, bring about major shifts. These play out rather literal, such as an eclipse on the northnode/ascendant of the event chart, which brought about a time of cutting ties and focusing on self development and own life. During the half nodal return (transit northnode conjunct southnode), one felt an insatiable desire to act upon desires that were left repressed during the entire duration of the relationship, by coincidence, this conjunction appeared in the 12th house of the event chart, adding secrecy. This was also the time when an affair began. So essentially, it’s important to understand the nodal placement, the events that result from a nodal activation tend to correspond to whatever the house signifies ; 1st house = self, 12th house = secrecy,..
The transit Northnode, pushes something to the surface, and it’s helpful to consider what house the aspected planet rules over. For example if the transit node aspects (especially conjunction/opposition) the 3rd house ruler, it can bring about shift in contractual matters or documents.
It seems that transits of outer planets, eclipses and nodal contacts, bring about major events.
First meeting between friends. The Moon is in an Angular house conjunct de Descendant, showing an important meeting with an emotional flavor to it. The Moon is conjunct Mercury (applying) showing what kickstarts the meeting ; exchange of thoughts, skills and emotional communication. The Moon is sextile Venus (separating) showing there were expectations for romance or arts. In this case the two people met for artistic reasons. The Moon is sextile Mars (separating) showing there was attraction before meeting. Mars is in an Air sign, which is masculine, in this case it was the man who was sexually interested in the female. The Moon is square Pluto (applying) showing an intense interaction which could be sexually flavored.
The two people had very deep conversations about sexuality, frustrations, which even lead to crying out hidden wounds. The Ascendant in Libra shows either a romantic or artistic meeting, in this case it was for artistic reasons. The Sun in Taurus clarifies the meeting having a strong theme about personal values in life. ASC ruler, Venus, is in Gemini which is a neutral placement for Venus. DSC ruler Mars, is in Aquarius in which it becomes free and erratic. As both the rulers are placed in an Air sign, it gives the meeting an intellectual flavor. The two people communicated for hours. The most exact aspect is MC trine Neptune by 0 degrees. Which indicates idealization about each other, creative energy.
First meeting between friends. The Moon is in an angular house which shows an important meeting. The Northnode conjunct the MC indicates a fated and karmic meeting between two people. It’s meant to be, for whatever reason. As it involves the MC it indicates a meeting that supports the individual’s purposes in life. The Moon is trine Mercury (applying) indicating that the kickstart is communication. The Moon is square Venus (separating) showing what was expected prior to the meeting. Probably there were some romantic feelings involved, however not very strong as Venus is weak by sign placement, but at home in the 7th house. Venus in the 7th house is a very beneficial placement for a first meeting chart,
which could also indicate that romantic feeling could developpe shortly after the meeting. The Ascendant in Virgo shows the nature of meeting, which in this case was about service, helping one out. The Sun in Aries indicates a very assertive and action oriented meeting. Loud, bold and strong. ASC ruler, Mercury, in Pisces is a weak placement and a bit delusional, meaning there could be some confusions around each other. DSC ruler, Neptune, in Pisces is at home and strong. But looking at the ancient ruler, Jupiter, in Aquarius is in fall, so again a weak placement. By dignity it shows no attraction between the two people. The most exact aspect in this chart is Mars trine Saturn applying by 0 degrees. showing there is determination and willpower between the two people, they could work well together.
Event of a Marriage, it lasted for 9 years and ended in a cheating scandal. The cheating shows up in the chart quite literal, and for this you don’t need to know electional astrology really. Neptune opposite to Mars, Venus conjunct Southnode in 12th, Neptune conjunct Lilith, Moon at 24°. First applying aspect from the Moon is a trine to Mars. A wedding gift that the wife promised to the husband, was to have a threesome at one point. Initially their sex life was very good, but the urge to explore got out of hand, and eventually lead to a cheating scandal (Neptune + Lilith).
The last applying aspect is a square to Jupiter, which represents the Husband, this indicates emotional dissatisfaction in the department of self expression (Moon in 5th). Interestingly, the end of the matter is seen through the 4th house, the IC is at 12° Libra, via the degree theory this means loss, disguise, endings, cheating, via the individual degrees 12° Libra means disappointments, melancholy and unfortunate. And indeed, whatever methods is used to read the degrees : it it true and shows the outcome. When looking at the ruler of the 4th, Venus, she’s found in the 12th house of secrecy, cheating (once again) and undoing. Venus conjunct Southnode means the decrease of value, love and commitment. Venus is also in an applying opposition to Pluto, what’s interesting about that, is that the cheating occurred when the Husband had transit Pluto opposite his natal Venus. Talking about how the event chart echoes the future… ! Venus is at 11°, that is an Aquarius degree and links to friendships or people in general, now, the cheating scandal was thanks to a woman he befriended at a festival, this is validated for Venus also rules the 11th house of friends.
A breakup is shown through Moon in an applying square aspect to Saturn, this means an aching heart, since the Moon represent the wife or female in this relationship, it was indeed she who experienced the loss most profoundly.
Another breakup indication is Jupiter conjunct Uranus, both are focused on freedom, but that Jupiter is headed towards urgency and crisis (28°), whereas Uranus represents the unknown change and shock (0°), found in the 9th house of courts and legal cases (divorce). The same applies to Neptune (28°) an illusion is about to get strong, fore Neptune is heading towards the critical 29° and will enter it’s home sign of Pisces. 28° of Aquarius means ‘contemplation’. This takes place in the 8th house of intimacy and deep desires, but it’s also a secret ; a secret fantasy , a.k.a contemplating a threesome.
The Moon is separating from POF, which does not favor the relationship n the long run, usually an applying aspect between Moon-POF works as a mitigating factor, sadly they did not benefit from this aspect on the long haul.
I’ve discussed this chart in a YouTube Video
