Selecting a wedding date

Today is a special day: the 11th of December of 2013 (11-12-13 in Europ). Numerous couples tried to schedule their marriage at 14h15. Here is more on the chart of that moment in Amersfoort (Netherlands) , when 9 couples will get married. It is a good chart for a wedding.

There are a few reasons why this is a good chart for a wedding ceremony:
1. Venus doesn't make aspects in sign or orb 5 degrees.
2. Jupiter is elevated
3. Mars is also 'calling' (no aspects in orb 5 degrees)
4. Vesta is on the horizon
Venus and Jupiter are always 'in' for a party. The prominence of Venus and Mars points at the passion of that moment. And Vesta conjunct Ascendant presents the perspective of a warm house.

Of course, there are also lesser aspects. Eris in the 7th house might be indicative for the jealousy of not selected couples. Uranus and Pluto on the corner stones of the chart present high tension (the media is interested, there are a lot of couples getting married at once...). And how about Mars in Libra? Sometimes there is just too much 'fire'. But don't worry...

Wedding charts are just one of the charts involved in a marriage. More important are the charts of the partners, their synastry and the shared aspects. It also matters how the progressed charts and transits of each of the partners are. And then the exact day or hour is of minor importance. I got married with Juno on the Ascendant of the wedding chart and on a Venus conjunct Jupiter day. Juno was conjunct Saturn and opposition Mars. It was on December 31 1970, icy cold. Perhaps that is how the marriage remained fresh:).

For a wedding party (and any other party) it is best if it is on a day with an aspect between Venus and Jupiter or with Venus or Jupiter in aspect with the positions in the charts of the partners involved. Don't forget to have a look at the position of Juno!
