Wedding date choice: What do you think?
I wonder if you can please help me decide between 2 wedding dates. They say that there's no perfect date....how true....
We want a garden wedding in early 2013, so ideally we'd like to get married in either Jan., Feb. or March 2013, in Sydney, Australia. I've checked and checked possible dates and at best came up with 2 alternative Friday night options. Friday, Feb 22 or Friday, March 1...both starting about 5:30pm with vows 6:30-7pmish - Taking vows as the chart time provides a fixed asc/desc axis, with jupiter conjunct MC both days and venus conjunct Desc (angular on the 22nd), but conjunct Neptune which is more likely to be angular in the 7th on March 1. In both charts the 7th house is loaded with planets and Jupiter squares them all including sun, neptune, venus, mars and mercury.....I figure there are worse challenges, or is that really bad?
Ruler of W (wedding) Leo Asc. (sun) is in Pisces conjunct venus, nepture, mercury and mars...and square jupiter in Gemini
Ruler of W Aquarius Desc. (uranus) is in Aries in the 8th house, sextile Jupiter, but square pluto.
Saturn is in 3rd, pluto in 5th, mars in seventh.
On Feb 22 Moon is in Cancer in the 11th house (if we run to time, otherwise 12th house), On March 1 Moon is in Libra in the 3rd house
In both these charts W(wedding) saturn in scorpio trines grooms sun, but squares bride's natal sun, mars, MC conjunction.....but it's a year long aspect and impossible to avoid.
W jupiter is trine the same conjunction, but square bride's natal venus/pluto opposition (part of a directed yod, sun/mars/mc in aquarius, venus in pisces (11th), trine neptune (7th) in scorpio, jupiter in 12th in aries - square mercury in capricorn in ninth), and square groom's natal sun.
FEB 22 CHART DETAILS
Feb 22 is a much better date work-wise - and mercury isn't retrograde yet, it turns retrograde late the next day. It's a beautiful chart: The Moon is waxing in cancer and well aspected to mars and mercury conjunction in pisces, saturn is trine sun. Sun in pisces is conjunct mars, mercury, neptune and - from aquarius- venus , BUT the moon's last aspects in the sign of cancer are quincunx venus 25 degrees in aquarius, trine uranus, 6 degrees in Aries. Is this very bad?
SYNASTRY FEB 22:
W venus conjunct bride's natal saturn and opp her moon, W mars conjunct bride's natal venus, w jupiter and w uranus form a yod with bride's natal ascendant.
W moon is trine Groom's natal sun, w mars is conjunct groom's natal sun, w mercury is conjunct groom's natal venus and opp his natal pluto, W saturn is trine groom's natal sun
MARCH 1 CHART DETAILS
March 1 is less convenient for work, and moon is waning, but it's still full in libra, applying trine to venus and neptune, both in early pisces. This aspect continues as moon leaves the sign of libra, approaching a trine to sun at 10 degrees of pisces. Another consideration is that mercury is retrograde on this date, however.
SYNASTRY MARCH 1:
W sun conjuncts bride's natal venus, W moon sextiles bride's natal moon,
W jupiter trines brides' natal sun, mars MC
W sun is conjunct groom's natal sun, W moon opposes his natal moon, W venus is sextile groom's natal saturn
Both bride and groom are over 40 - but this is the first wedding for each.
Does anybody have any advice about which date is best to choose? Your thoughts would be much appreciated because my head is reeling a bit....
