romance seekers have several options available for meeting compatible
partners. Some singles let attached colleagues know they are available
for blind dates and wangle invitations to parties or dinners. Others
may place personal ads, surf the dating sites on the Web, or join
a dating club to assess prospects. Once takers appear, romantics
must be able to describe their ideal social life or the qualities
they desire in partners.

that highlight your social and love life. Houses Five through Eight
comprise the zone of relationships or intimacy. These houses and
the planets that fall in them describe the people you meet and the
nature and type of activity that occurs. When you learn the birth
date of potential partners and discover that their intimate planets
fall (are placed in the same sign or degree) on some of your own
planets in these key houses, you determine the level of compatibility
Life: The Fifth House
Fifth House indicates how you carry out your social life and whom
you date. Your preferred recreation or vacation choices may attract
individuals who share them. You are likely to meet partners who
have similar interests or hobbies and attend the same parties. Since
the Fifth House describes your dating style, a social event could
trigger a long-term love affair when the personalities click. A
woman with Venus in the Fifth House met a man with the Moon in the
same sign. Both were musicians and they met at band practice. The
romance clicked, and they made beautiful music together on the concert

spirits there who share an interest in work. The place of employment
is a fertile dating ground, and you may be attracted to clients
as well. If you have inner planets in the Sixth House (Sun, Moon,
Mercury, Venus, Mars, or Jupiter) you have a good chance of meeting
someone through your work who becomes a dating partner at some time
in your work cycle. An optometrist with Moon, Venus and Jupiter
in Aries in his Sixth House met his future spouse through his work.

in her eyes and 20-20 vision.

mate. It refers to any significant other with whom you have an intimate,
live-in relationship. The sign ruling your Seventh House cusp often
describes the kind of partners you attract. If you have planets
in that house, a deeper description of the partnerís traits emerges.
When there are no planets in that house, the ruling planet (sign
on the cusp) is particularly important in understanding the depth
and type of relationship. If the ruler has mostly favorable aspects
to other planets, the chances of a successful marriage increase.
Dominant stressful aspects might suggest difficult partnerships,
karmic unions, or multiple marriages.

Planets here describe receptivity and compatibility of a romantic
and sensual nature. If a couple has planets that connect in this
house, the level of involvement increases. Weak links to Mars (passion)
and Venus (love) may put intimacy on the back burner. Harsh aspects
between these planets and Pluto may mean jealousy or obsession on
the part of one or both partners. True soul mates connect on all
levels. Absence of activity in this house often means the relationship
flames out, one or both partners feel uneasy in the relationship
or they have more of a business partnership than an intimate one.

mate who has planets falling there establishes an important connection.
An individual with planets that compliment your Ascendant finds
