    Part of Marriage substituted for Part of Love (Eros)

    Updated 13th Jan 2021

    The Part Of Marriage (POM) is extensively used by John Frawley in his books and Kindle ebooks and by kindred Traditional Astrologers. It is often used in relationship horary charts.

    I’m taking an example from the excellent Kindle book Horary Examples: Traditional Horary Astrology By Example. The example horary is Will I be any happier if I leave him? 


    Here’s the chart from the book:

    “Now let’s look at the Sun in its role as dispositor of the Part of Marriage. To calculate the POM we use the formula of Ascendant + Descendant – Venus. This gives us 131:15 degrees, which converts to 11:15 Leo; the Sun rules Leo, so the Sun signifies the marriage.”
