This week's question was received on Jan. 20, 2005, 6:16:12 pm EET (-2:00), in Tirgu Mures, Romania (24e34, 46n33). Originally this question was phrased in Spanish "Soy amada por mi pareja?" ("Does my partner love me?", woman asking).
This is also a relationship question, a 7th house question. The presence of Neptune on the Descendant expresses the querent's confusion or doubt on partner's feelings.
According to the traditional rules, Saturn rules Aquarius, the sign on the 7th cusp, so Saturn rules the partner. The woman asking the question is represented by the Sun, ruler of the Ascendant.
What is very interesting in this horary is that both rulers of the 1st and 7th houses, the Sun and Saturn, are located in other person's 12th house (Saturn in the radix 12th house, the Sun in the 12th house derived from the 7th, i.e. the radix 6th house). This situation suggests a mutual misunderstanding.
What is of great importance in this chart is that the Sun is received by Saturn in its term, an essential dignity that often shows the intentions of the person represented by the planet which owns the term (Saturn, the partner) in relationship to the person represented by the planet located at that degree (the Sun, the woman asking). I consider this as an important indication of affection, if not love.
The Moon separates from a square with Uranus, modern 7th house ruler, indicating the events that led the querent to ask the question - a conflict with the partner.
The Moon applies to the Descendant by trine and this indicates that the events will go toward a reconciliation and is a 'yes' to the question asked.
Based on this data, it is possible to give the final answer to the question: 'yes' he loves her.
Although the question doesn't cover this area, it is possible to make a prediction as to the next flow of events - we'll just look to the house that symbolises the end of story. The end of the events related to the question is shown by the 4th house (end of things) counted from the 7th, of relationships.
The applying square of the Sun (her) to the 4th house from the 7th house and the disharmonic last aspect of the Moon before leaving its current sign, Gemini, the opposition with Pluto (fears, subconscious), make it possible for her not to believe this 'yes' answer and continue questioning his feelings.
The radix 10th house is also the house that holds the signification of the astrologer's reputation. In this case the Sun - Midheaven square may also indicate disbelief in the astrological interpretation.
