We're all prone to indulging sometimes, so what can show that you will? Venus and Jupiter are usually in play, so anytime you have any Venus or Jupiter aspects, you can be prone to overindulgence. This can be the case with transit aspects by Venus or Jupiter to your natal chart, or with transit aspects to your natal Venus or Jupiter, and it can be the case with the easy aspects (sextiles and trines), but tends to play out most with conjunctions, squares, or oppositions, particularly oppositions. Oppositions can show out-of-control energy, so overindulgence becomes over the top. And when you have transit Venus opposite natal Jupiter or transit Jupiter opposite natal Venus? Oh boy, throw out the scale!
You can also be prone to overindulgence with aspects to the 2nd house cusp or ruler, which is ruled by Venus naturally and governs the senses; as well as with transit Venus or Jupiter in the natal 1st house (of the self), 2nd house, 4th house (ruling comfort food), or 6th house (of health). The Moon can also show times when you may eat more, but it's usually as a way of comforting yourself emotionally since the Moon rules emotions, and you can be prone to "comfort foods". This can play out when the Moon is touring your 1st, 2nd, 4th, or 6th houses, or is aspecting your natal Venus, Jupiter, Moon, or 1st or 2nd house ruler or cusp.
Transit Saturn aspects or aspects to your natal Saturn can have more moderating influence since Saturn rules restrictions and limitations, so you can be less inclined to indulge with transit Saturn aspecting your natal chart (especially your natal Venus, Jupiter, or Moon), or with aspects to your natal Saturn, or Saturn transiting your natal 1st, 2nd, 4th, or 6th houses.
