Love Flames

A soulmate (or soul mate) is a person with whom one has a feeling of deep or natural affinity, similarity, love, intimacy, sexuality, spirituality, or compatibility. A related concept is that of the twin flame or twin soul, which is thought to be the ultimate soulmate. In New Age spirituality, the ultimate soulmate is the one and only other half of one's soul. However, not everyone who uses these terms intends them to carry such mystical connotations.

Some of the most common questions asked of an astrologer are "When will I find love?" and "When will I marry?"
The answer, as is the case with any kind of prediction, is not clear-cut. In fact, it can be downright complicated.

Some of these points may overlap. For example, if Venus rules the individual's 7th house, you wouldn't need to note down the position of Venus twice, although it is helpful to make a mental note that Venus is likely to be a particularly sensitive point.

We will be looking for hard aspects to these points, as well as "soft" ones, in terms of transits and progressions. Hard aspects include the conjunction, square, opposition, semi-square, and sesquiquadrate. Soft aspects include the trine and sextile.
Although squares, conjunctions, and oppositions are fairly easy to spot, the semi-square (45 degrees) and sesquiquadrate (135 degrees) are not as intuitive. In order to organize your reading, the best thing to do is to calculate a list/table as found in the case study that follows this discussion.
