Re: where is it going?
I don't think this trip will lead to any long term love relatinship.
You are signified by Saturn in Leo in the 7th house. This house position and the detriment of Saturn show your "powerless" status and you're interest in a serious relationship (although not necessarily with him I must say).
I tried using different significators for him to cover all possibilities. Using the 11th house, he is signified by Jupiter in his turned 11th applying to a square with Saturn in the radix 7th. As your friend, he's more interested in continuing the friendship, which could clash with your committed relationship hopes.
Using the 5th house as a somewhat romantic partner (as you mentioned intimacy), he is signified by Mercury in his turned second not beholding your significator at all. That's a no, he is secure where he is right now.
Using the 7th house for a significant other relationship, he is signified by the Moon in its turned first with no application to Saturn. That's a no; he's more interested in his own life than getting a serious partner at the moment.
The last lunar aspect is a square with Pluto Rx in the 11th house, showing that it ends as friendship with a possible clash.
Now, I must tell you that I cannot see any of the degrees in the chart. If I could, I would have used Mars, the almtuen of the ASC, to signify you. From what I see, it's seem to be in a partile conjunction with the Moon, the ruler of the 7th. I cannot tell whether this aspect is applying to separating, something that may make a difference in this reading. Please post a chart shoiwng the degrees or the data of the question so that I could cast my own chart.
It's important to distinguish between means and ends.
