There are times when your partner is less receptive to commitment, but the opposite is also true. Certain transits and progressions can nudge someone towards marriage, or at least a deepening of the bond with their lover. As always, you must look at your partner’s natal potential for commitment. And, you must consider the synastry and composite charts for the two of you. But if these areas look strong, and one or more of the influences below activates your partner’s chart, they might be interested in taking your relationship to the next level.
Progressed 1st/7th House Axis: A Whole New Relationship
When the Descendant (7th House cusp) changes signs by progression, it’s a rare event. There will be a noticeable shift in your partner’s approach to relationships. Certain signs are more conducive to stability and solidification, and your partner will view their relationship through the lens of that sign. For example, the DC progressed into Scorpio can bring increased intensity and all-or-nothing commitment. Taurus can enhance stability and the urge to put down roots. The tradition-loving signs of Cancer/Capricorn can also increase commitment. Your partner’s Progressed DC in Cancer suggests that he or she is ready to nest and wants to establish a safe relationship. In Capricorn, they’ll become serious (even ambitious) about their love life: No more fooling around. Note that when the Descendant changes signs, the Ascendant shifts as well; your lover will develop a new identity to go along with their new take on partnership. The 1st/7th House axis occupies a new sign for about forty years.
