The Top 5 Things in Your Birth Chart That Predict Love
As an astrologer, one of the most popular questions I get during a reading is, “When will I find love?” Closely followed by, “When will I have babies?” and “Wtf is happening with my career?”
Funny enough, I love these types of questions. Being able to look into potential time periods when the universe is conspiring to make huge changes is my favorite part about astrology.
When I’m looking at someone’s chart, I look for potential ups and downs in planetary energy in their natal chart. It’s like looking at the weather forecast, instead of physical weather, I’m looking for emotional weather. While there are many ways of doing this—including Tarot cards, runes, pendulums, or simply following your intuition—astrology has been my favorite way to help others ride the waves of the universe.
Locating important “love time frames” in your chart can help you decide where to put your focus. For instance, like many of us, I too had a time I wanted to know when I’d experience my next significant relationship. After I looked to my chart, though, I saw that nothing more than casual dating was in store for me for the next few years (gasp!), as it was all about setting a foundation for my career. Once over the initial shock of multiple years of singledom, I think this really helped me to focus on self-growth, development, and self-care in a way that I probably would not have otherwise.
With that said, when analyzing at a chart, I try look for a couple key indicators. So without further ado, here are the top 5 astrological interactions that predict love.
When’s My Next Relationship? 5 Ways to Tell

1) When Your 5th House Has Activity
When your fifth house has many planets passing through it, the universe is telling you it’s time to have some fun. This is the time for play, dating, creativity, flirting. Meeting and greeting should be all too easy here. When I see planets like Jupiter (planet of luck), Venus (planet of love), Mercury (planet of communication), the sun (planet of self), or even a new moon happening in someone’s fifth house of love, romance, and creativity, I expect to see them shining when it comes to dating. This is heightened even more when harmonious aspects are connecting with planets in the fifth house. So if Jupiter is in the seventh house making a 60 degree angle to Venus in the fifth house, I tell folks to make sure they leave the house looking their best, prepared to collect numbers.

2) When Your 7th House Has Activity
Similar to the fifth house, the seventh house relates to love in astrology. The biggest difference is this is where serious relationships are experienced in the chart. The fifth house is all about dating and romance, the seventh house is all about long term partnerships and marriage. When someone asks me about when a serious relationship is coming up, I look to see where Saturn (planet of foundation) is. If I find him in the seventh house, I know that this person will be looking for something serious and long term, as this is the lesson their soul wants them to focus on right now. Often folks will marry or at the least get engaged with this transit. Other planets I love to see in this part of the chart is Jupiter. He brings expansion and good fortune, which naturally makes it easier to find a relationship with this aspect. A new moon here could indicate the start of a new chapter of your love life as well.
3) When Saturn and Venus Are ~Talking~
Saturn harmoniously interacting with Venus could absolutely indicate a significant relationship in the near future. Saturn represents commitment, responsibility, discipline, and Venus represents loveeee. When these two team up, you end up with some sort of love commitment. Saturn is all about pushing you into adulthood and/or soul growth. Romantic relationships is definitely one of those things that helps us do exactly this.
4) When Jupiter and Venus Join Up
Similar to when Saturn and Venus team up, when Jupiter and Venus team up, it can definitely bring some sparkle to your love life. The energy of Jupiter might not be as serious as that of Saturn, but it sure does bring its own magic to the party. You’ll feel your options for love increase under a harmonious interaction with Venus the ruler of love and money and Jupiter the lord of expansion and good luck. Angles that are most harmonious are sextiles (60 degrees), trines (120 degrees), conjunctions (0 degrees).

5) If There’s a Progressed Moon in Your 7th House
Last but not least is the progressed moon. I love to look at other aspects in a progressed chart but my most favorite is the progressed moon! The progressed moon takes 2-3 years to move through a house, and therefore takes 27-30 years to make a full rotation around the chart. When I see the progressed moon going through the seventh house, I feel like something significant will happen in that person’s love life. And mostly it does!! I’ve seen so many people enter into very serious, often marriage bound relationships during this progression.
Now that you are equipped with some of my fool proof aspects to look for, be sure to drop us a note and let us know if you see anything cool coming up for you. Plus, one final way to test out the energy is to back track and look at your chart on the dates of significant relationship changes for you. You can start to see patterns that you can look for in the future.
