Following the California Supreme Court decision to pass a law that allows same sex marriage, Walden Welch legally married his partner of 45 years on 19 June 2008. Astrologically, Welch's natal Moon is found within (and on the cusp of) his 7th House (the house associated with relationships and marriage). At the time of his marriage his Solar Arc directed Moon had moved to 9 degrees of Taurus in the 9th House (the house of the Law), squaring his North-Node and Pluto conjunction in the 12th House (the marriage was a long time coming) and making a trine to his 5th House Sun (allowing him to marry his man). Meanwhile, Solar Arc progressed Neptune (the ruler of his natal 7th House) reached 9 degrees of Sagittarius (the Sign associated with the Law), forming a semi-sextile to his natal Sun and making a trine with his natal Pluto (thus allowing him to take advantage of the big Legal change that gave him the right to wed his same sex partner).
