I'd like to ask what the difference is between "get hitched" and "take one's relationship to a new level of commitment":
Just as it is auspicious to get hitched this month, it is also a good time to take your relationship to a new level of commitment.
As far as I understand the sentence says that the month in question is favourable for two things -- getting hitched and taking one's relationship to a new level of commitment -- but I fail to understand the difference between them.
Looks like one of those catch-all astrology pieces one finds in newspapers
They are very good at using phrases that can have more than one interpretation.
