Auspicious dates, determined by the aspects of planets that rule love, idealism, men, women, abundance etc are few and far between. It gets even harder to determine a lucky day when you bring in the factor of the two people that are planning a marriage charts.
A lucky wedding date needs to be analyzed from the couple's natal chart AND the proposed date of marriage.
"I know of only one way in which to select a propitious time for courtship and marriage. That is by consulting the progressed aspects made in the chart of birth. While there must be a progressed aspect to the ruler of the seventh house (marriage) or marriage will not take place, the dominant harmony or discords of the progressed aspects at the time largely determine how successful the particular marriage will be.
In the analysis of 100 charts of people divorced, as set forth in the book WHEN AND WHAT EVENTS WILL HAPPEN, it was found that at the time of their marriage 79% had discordant progressed aspects predominant, 52% had only discordant progressed aspects to the ruler of the seventh, 44% had only discordant progressed aspects to the ruler of the opposite sex, and 28% had only discordant progressed aspects to Venus, the planet of affection. All of these and 115 other charts analyzed in the same book at the time of marriage, had a progressed aspect to the ruler of the seventh house.
The analysis of the progressed aspects in the birth carts of these 215 people at the time of marriage emphasized the unwisdom of marrying at a time when the progressed aspects are dominantly discordant.
While of the 100 marriages resulting in divorce 79 had discordant progressed aspects dominant, only 3 of them had harmonious progressed aspects dominant, and the remaining 18 had harmonious and discordant progressed aspects at the time rather evenly balanced. Thus unless the progressed aspects at the time of marriage are dominantly harmonious the marriage starts under a tremendous handicap.
Next in importance to the dominant progressed influence at the time of marriage is the harmony or discord ot the progressed aspects to the ruler of the seventh. In 52 of the marriages resulting in divorce the only progressed aspects to the ruler of the seventh were discordant, in 17 they were harmonious only, and in the balance they were about evenly balanced. Thus marriage at a time when there are no harmonious aspects to the ruler of the seventh is rather hazardous.
The significant factor however is this: “Quite a percentage of these people who divorced, later remarried when their progressed aspects were harmonious, and made a success of the later marriage. "
