While Venus, planet of love will remain in your communication sector for another 2 weeks, where she's working to give your heart a voice and ensure the communication lines are not only open but in a real an authentic way, the Moon will only make one visit to your relationship sector during that time. That visit takes place this week, with the Moon moving through your relationship sector from Tuesday to Thursday. What makes this so important is that with no planetary activity in your relationship sector the emotional and intuitive buttons the Moon pushes are the only voice that your relationships and any underlying issues get. This is the only time all year that Venus is able to give those issues and emotional responses a voice, creating the potential for a breakthrough.
There is a sea change this week and it's not just that you begin the week with the Moon in your romantic sector, bringing some much needed romantic sentiment. The Moon will be here during the last full day of your birthday month, giving you a chance to counterbalance a month that has had more than its fair share of personal and/or relationship tension. With Saturn in your relationship sector you haven't been able to let things slide and by now, anything that needed to come to a head will have, with everything is out in the open. While the Moon's visit to your relationship sector from Thursday to Saturday may push some buttons, it will also provide a chance to clear the air. This makes it important to hold onto the spirit of romance earlier in the week, enjoying some light relief.
This is a week of two halves, with a romantic feel to the first 5 days and then things shifting to your relationships. The Moon's visit to your romantic sector from Tuesday to Thursday, his only visit while Venus is in your sign will help define your romantic desires and expectations for the coming year. With no planetary activity in your romantic sector this is your chance to touch base with the spirit of romance, getting your bearings on what you want from love as you move into your birthday month and new solar year. With no planetary activity in your relationship sector and not even the lunar nodes, which usually set the scene for eclipses, Saturday's lunar eclipse in your relationship sector could take you by surprise, magnifying things in a way that even a Full Moon can't do.
In case of perfect timing it seems the Moon, your ruling body has your back covered. The Moon knows that he can't do anything to stop relationship tension coming to a head on Tuesday, especially as it's been building since last week, but he can help turn this into an opportunity. You will move into the week with the Moon already in your communication sector and he'll leave on Tuesday, just as relationship pressure peaks. This means that as your relationships and any relationship issues are getting the squeeze, with anything building behind the scenes coming to a head, the Moon will be there to keep the communication lines open. This turns something potentially challenging into an opportunity for both a communication and relationship breakthrough, giving unsaid words a voice.
Things have been tough, with a series of work/life balance tensions having already peaked but still in evidence, work tension peaking this week and busy professional forces demanding your attention. Yet just when it appears that even if the love gods were to knock on the door and that you'd have no time to answer the door, fate is set to intervene. There is no force more powerful or impossible to ignore than a lunar eclipse and that's exactly what the love gods are employing to bring some much needed romance into your life. Just hours after returning to your romantic sector on Saturday the Moon will turn rouge, becoming a lunar eclipse when there was nothing there to suggest that this was even possible. This could be a game changer, introducing the element of fate.
While you'll move into the week with the Moon still pushing some emotional buttons and creating some personal and/or relationship tension and pressure on Pluto and your romantic sector building, things are not nearly as bleak as they might seem. Any relationship tension is fleeting and nothing more than the Moon's monthly wakeup calls. Even pressure on Pluto will peak on Tuesday and if anything is more likely to evoke your fighting spirit, with your romantic passions fighting back. On both the romantic and relationship fronts you're here for the long haul and the love gods are in no hurry, with every wakeup call more a sign that when a lot more is on offer a lot more is also expected from you. The future holds new opportunities and second chances on the romantic and relationship fronts.
While there may be some relationship tension this week, there is also the potential for a breakthrough. However, to start with things may appear to get worse before they get better and it's all because of Uranus, the only planet in your relationship sector. Uranus is under pressure from Pluto and chances are it is matters on the home and family front that are fuelling any relationship tensions. However, all this is challenging are false expectations and trying to keep up a false facade, with something more real and honest trying to breakthrough. The Moon's return to your sign on Tuesday will put him in opposition with Uranus, the same day that pressure from Pluto peaks, inflaming things. Yet at the same time this will speed up the breakthrough that is possible.
With the Sun leaving your relationship sector on Tuesday it's important to move into the new week with your eyes open and head out of the sand, which shouldn't be too hard after the relationship challenges of the last month. Since Venus' return to your relationship sector on the 15th April you've endured four Saturn oppositions, all the most challenging in 28 years of experiencing what is your annual relationship review period. Yet as the Sun moves on and with most wakeup calls already behind you this will leave Mars, planet of passion behind and not due to leave until later next week, he's here to help with the rebuilding and to push through any remaining barriers. This is all about finding the right balance between your personal and relationship needs, raising the bar on both fronts.
Despite the fact that pressure on Uranus and your romantic sector will peak this week, it peaks on the same day that the Sun returns to your relationship sector and is more a case of the love gods fighting for your attention. A wakeup call to your romantic needs will reveal what you're fighting for and also where you might be fighting too much, not leaving enough for the laws of synchronicity to work effectively. Meanwhile, the Sun's return to your relationship sector shines the spotlight on an improving relationship situation, with a yearlong Jupiter visit aimed at putting your relationships on the right track moving into its final month. Don't be surprised if relationship issues come to a head over the weekend, but with Venus and Mercury aligned this sets the scene for a breakthrough.
There is a new sense of urgency developing on the romantic front this week, for after Venus' departure earlier in the month and Mercury's late last week, the Sun's departure on Tuesday leaves just one planet behind. However, as that planet is Mars, planet of passion and the warrior planet of the cosmos then this is when the gloves come off and with your romantic passions engaged, you're ready to come out of your corner fighting. After being goaded by tensions and challenges over the last month, when the Sun and his reality checks move on, there will be nothing holding Mars back. Due to leave later next week and then not returning until 2015, as well as fuelling a sense of urgency and your romantic passions, Mars will be evoking a sense that it's now or never.
After some challenging weeks, with work/life balance tensions, the love gods are already fighting back this week. Just as Mercury is spending his first week in your romantic sector, after returning last week, the Sun's return on Tuesday will add even more weight to a romantic turnaround. Over the weekend lucky Jupiter will move into his final month in your romantic sector, bringing you to a point where support or no support it will be time to bring things home. When Mars returns next week, just hours after Mercury leaves, the line up in your romantic sector will include Jupiter, Mars, Venus and the Sun, lined up for the first time here since 1907. To say you're moving into some of the luckiest weeks for love in years is a gross understatement. This could be life changing.
While the Moon's position in your relationship sector as you move into the week may push some emotional buttons, the love gods have that covered, just as something special is building behind the scenes. For just as the Moon is pushing buttons on the relationship front on Monday the Sun is in his last full day in your communication sector and they are actively working together. This plays into both hands, setting the scene for a communication and/or relationship breakthrough. This gives you a chance to clear the air on any relationship issues for already there are signs of something stirring on the romantic front. While it's next month that the love gods will reveal just what's up their sleeves, they're already preparing the way by evoking a need for something deeper and more meaningful.
