Excerpt from my latest Sasstrology article (please comments on the Sasstrology site):
"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."
