Why didn't my mother marry until she was much older than her peers?

This week I am (again) using a technique from Rose Murray's fab book When Will You Marry 

I am using my mother's chart as she didn't meet my Dad until she was 30, and she didn't marry until she was 32 years old.

Why wasn't she even interested in marriage until that age?

Mum's natal chart

Gemini Asc = Ruler is Mercury

Descendant/7th house in the sign of Sagittarius = Ruler is Jupiter



Ephemeris for 1921 

Get yours here

I've noted that Mercury is her Asc ruler and Jupiter is her 7th house ruler

Mercury is in Pisces and Jupiter is retro in Virgo (opposite signs)

I've underlined my mother's date of birth and counted on from that date in blocks of 10


As you will see Mercury goes retrograde on the 22nd Feb 1921



On Wednesday 16th March, Mercury comes out of retrograde.

By age 30 (which I've underlined) Mercury is 3 degrees 36 Pisces and Jupiter is 12 degrees 19 Virgo

When she gets to 32 days after birth, in secondary progressions = age 32 Mercury is now 4 degrees 6 Pisces and Jupiter has retro/ed all the way back to 12 degrees 5 Virgo which means they're exactly (within 8 degrees orb) in opposition!!
