Astrology Special: Marriage Signs
Did you know that once you set your wedding date, you create a unique astrological sign for the marriage itself? In other words, you may be an Aries and your husband-to-be may be a Taurus, but if you choose to tie the knot on July 1st, you’ll have a Cancerian marriage. Check your wedding date below to find out your marriage sign.
THE ARIES MARRIAGE: March 21-April 21
This is the can-do couple. They’re always first to get moving in any situation. These two are fiercely competitive and if the neighbour puts a pool in, they’ll organise a pool, spa, cabana and faux beach. Expect the odd feud as well – with anyone from the council to in-laws. One of the pair will typically love playing sport, or supporting it, so be prepared. You will never be bored with an Aries couple and even though there will be plenty of fights (between each other, or involving their common ‘enemies’) their company is always fast, furious and fun. One of them will attract speeding fines.
THE TAURUS MARRIAGE: April 22-May 21
These two are either the King and Queen of budg living, or they’ll dedicate themselves to a lifetime of earning and spending. There are no averagely rich or broke Taurean couples, as they go to extremes – although the generous ones also give to charity. Lots of them go for pre-nuptials as they’ve been burned over money or property in previous relationships. Expect lots of issues about how the balance sheet divides up, especially if his salary is very different to hers – or if one of them is funded by the other! The garden will be very important. A shared business or investment is likely.
THE GEMINI MARRIAGE: May 22-June 22
The brother or sister of one partner will be tremendously important to this marriage, for better or worse. Expect a huge telephone bill before, during and after the wedding, as communication is what this relationship is built on. One partner may be in media, education, sales, travel or other ‘connection’ professions – with the job coming soon after the wedding. Lots of jokes and nicknames keep these two together. One partner will save all the letters, notes and cards and even print out the e-mails. When things go wrong, they usually do so because of communication issues; nothing more.
THE CANCER MARRIAGE: June 23-July 23
The mother of one partner comes along for the ride in this marriage, and will either make it or break it. There is a big focus on family for one partner – both the need to create one, and the need to keep the existing family happy. This marriage is also about property investment and renovations, as this is the sign of a couple who dedicate their lives to home improvement and savvy real estate deals. The kitchen will be the most important room in the home and there will be a big emphasis on food in the relationship – to the point where one partner may have to watch his/her weight. It’s a close match.
THE LEO MARRIAGE: July 24-August 23
Who’s the ‘star’ in this marriage? Both sides had better sort out the answer to this before the bride walks down the aisle, as it will be a constant concern during the relationship. In actual fact, this marriage will turn both partners into VIPs for the time that they are together, and one or both will have to get used to their fifteen minutes of fame. Both will take up leadership positions at work, in society or just in the local community. Both could easily become ‘King’ and ‘Queen’ of the neighbourhood too. The property they ultimately own will have a stunning garden – positively royal.
THE VIRGO MARRIAGE: August 24-September 23
This is the kind of marriage which comes with lots of rules about daily routines. Even if both partners were laidback about health or fitness before – or diet – once the Virgo marriage kicks off, don’t be surprised if the big topic of discussion in bed is tomorrow’s gym session, or the vitamin C content of tangerines. Together these two are incredibly efficient, like a well-oiled machine, so often end up being asked to organise life for other people. The home will be immaculate, because both partners work so hard at everything from the housework to the garden. Expect lots of lists on the fridge.
THE LIBRA MARRIAGE: September 24-October 23
These two will bend over backwards to please each other, to the point where family and friends will put their heads in their hands if decisions ever have to be made. It’s a madly romantic marriage, which reminds people of old-fashioned fairytales. Expect flowers in the home, and in the garden too – and flowers on birthdays and anniversaries. One partner will become a style icon during the course of the marriage, but both wardrobes will become far more impressive after the wedding. These two influence each other on matters of taste, style, art, beauty and fashion. They’re hard to break apart.
THE SCORPIO MARRIAGE: October 24-November 22
Passionate, complicated, intense and full of secrets – that’s the Scorpio marriage. Life will sometimes remind friends and family of an opera, or even a soap opera. Sex is extremely important in this relationship, and if the chemistry in bed is good, it will make up for a multitude of sins elsewhere. There will be lots of power and control issues as time goes by, and this couple will have to work hard to sort out questions about dominance within the relationship. If it works, these two will become business or property winners, as together they have an instinct for investment and a good deal.
THE SAGITTARIUS MARRIAGE: November 22-December 21
This couple will seldom be home as they will be exploring their own state, or distant regions of Australia and New Zealand, every chance they get. If time and money allow they will spend their lives getting to know an exotic corner of Europe, the US or Asia and it may become their second home. The beliefs and personal philosophies and ideas of one partner will be very important in this marriage and the views of both people on religion will be a big issue, prior to the big day. One partner will be given the encouragement to study during this partnership and gain qualifications.
THE CAPRICORN MARRIAGE: December 22-January 20
This couple climbs the social ladder in spectacular style during the course of their marriage, and will amaze friends by their steady move into better neighbourhoods, or a starrier social life. They are both very hard-working and one partner in particular will become a solid career performer throughout the relationship – encouraged, of course, by the other. This is a stable match, tied to property, money and position. The Capricorn couple are the first people that friends or family members turn to in a crisis. With luck this is the kind of partnership that can last a lifetime.
THE AQUARIUS MARRIAGE: January 21-February 19
This couple gather so many friends during the course of their marriage that it’s almost a second family to them. Their home will be an open house for his pals, her gal pals, and anyone who happens to be in search of a bed for the night. Expect lots of community involvement, from local politics through to music, drama or book groups. One partner will become noticeably more eccentric during the course of the marriage, to the point where he or she is quite an oddball in old age. This won’t affect the love these two share, however. They are best friends first, and red hot lovers second.
THE PISCES MARRIAGE: February 20-March 20
This is a super psychic partnership and there will be a lot of mind-reading during the time that this couple are together. Expect a very emotional, extremely sensitive relationship with a lot of poetry and music, and a few tears as well. Feelings run very deep in a Piscean marriage. Both will be drawn to water, and will either try to live near a river or beach, or if necessary, compensate for a lack of water views with a luxurious spa or stunning swimming pool. In order for a Piscean marriage to work, both partners have to understand the mutual need to escape, alone, from time to time.
