As Venus and Jupiter continue to converge in your romantic sector you'll find that your excuses are being challenged, with your heart starting to fall under its spell. While Venus and Jupiter won't align until Thursday, creating some extremely auspicious romantic conditions, in the early days of the week an alliance between Venus and Uranus, planet of surprise, synchronicity and the unexpected is bringing the laws of attraction and synchronicity into play. With luck, fate and the love gods working as a team all you've got to do is let things unfold naturally, getting out of the way of what is trying to get through as you refuse to let old excuses get in your way. As good as the romantic conditions are this week this is just a gateway into some stunning weeks and months.
As you move into the new week you're riding the crest of a wave that began over the weekend, one that is sweeping your emotional responses to relationship matters up in an unstoppable force, with unsaid words finally finding their voice. While the Moon's first visit to your relationship sector since Saturn returned 2 weeks earlier will end on Monday, coming just a week after the Sun's return to your communication sector and just 4 days after Mars' return, this comes with the means for a communication and/or relationship breakthrough. With communication and relationship forces continuing to work together over the coming weeks, this is a chance to start the way you intend to go on. In the meantime, hold onto the romantic sentiment and promise triggered last week.
The focus is on your relationships this week and the timing couldn't be better. The Moon's visit to your relationship sector in the early days of the week, the first since Saturn left will evoke some strong emotional responses and a reminder of where your focus needs to be. After taking you on a 6 month relationship boot camp Saturn left you and your relationships on your own for 3 months, returning in September to start over from scratch again, in the meantime putting responsibility for keeping your relationships on track in your hands. The Moon's first visit was always going to be a valuable chance to use the emotional responses as a gauge, but coming during the most auspicious week of the year for communication, there's a chance for a communication and/or relationship breakthrough.
With the Moon not only returning to your relationship sector midweek but triggering a Full Moon on Thursday, your relationships will get more than their fair share of attention this week, making it important to hold onto the spirit of romance you move into the week with. While the Moon will leave your romantic sector on Monday, a visit over the weekend and the first encounter with Saturn here all year, has not only evoked a sense of romance but allowed you to tap into a sense of romantic nostalgia. This comes with a reminder of what you might be missing out on, while the doors are now open to second chances and a do over. This is something that will remain a work in progress for the coming months, even as the focus shifts to your relationships midweek, in an emotionally charged way.
The Moon makes two important visits this week, not because of what this might create but the forces already in play that will be accentuated, at the best possible time. Just as Venus should be getting ready to leave your sign, she is instead digging in her toes and is refusing to leave, aligning with lucky Jupiter towards the end of the week, while starting the week in an alliance with Uranus that is bringing the laws of attraction and synchronicity into play. It's into this atmosphere that the Moon returns to your romantic sector on Monday, for the first time since Saturn left and to your relationship sector over the weekend, evoking emotional and exaggerated responses on both fronts. This comes as Venus' mission to redefine your romantic and relationship expectations gets serious.
The love gods dial up a very special week on both the romantic and relationship fronts, for very different reasons. While, with Pluto in retrograde motion in your romantic sector, Neptune and Chiron in retrograde motion in your relationship sector and Venus, planet of love in a nostalgic part of your chart the focus was always going to be on the past, it's what this brings up this week that is significant. Your relationships will get a boost by the fact that you'll not only move into the week with the Moon in your communication sector, able to give your relationship and emotional responses a voice, but will highlight the powerful support behind this. Yet it's the spirit of romance that gets a boost from the Moon's return to your romantic sector and the Full Moon this creates on Thursday.
While your relationships haven't always been well supported and even as recently as late last week the Moon's return to your sign may have pushed some buttons and fuelled any personal and/or relationship tension, from the get go they couldn't be more supported this week. That was the case anyway with Uranus, moving through your relationship sector coming out of a strong alliance with lucky Jupiter over the weekend, only to move into the same alliance with Venus, planet of love in the early days of the week. With the laws of attraction and synchronicity in effect there is something serendipitous in play in the early days of the week, with the Moon's return to your communication sector on Monday turning this into an opportunity for a communication and/or relationship breakthrough.
While dreamy Neptune turned retrograde in your romantic sector on the 15th June, it wasn't until Chiron's retrograde turn last week that all your romantic focus shifted to the past, with a chance this week to let this settle. The Moon will return to your romantic sector early next week to give you a better read on what this has opened the door to, with the focus this week more on giving yourself time to adjust to this change of focus and to what having the doors open to the past and second chances means for you. At the same time you've had a chance over the weekend to get a sense of what Saturn's return to your sign had on your relationships, with any buttons this may have pushed or strong emotional responses to relationship matters more likely to be a case of old triggers.
Thanks to the Sun and Mars' departure from your relationship sector last week Mercury is now back on his own and it will stay that way until he too leaves next week. With all the focus on your relationships finishing when Mercury leaves next Thursday, his last full week is all about doing whatever it takes to ensure the communication lines are open and showing up in your relationships in every possible way. You're at a point in the year where you should know by now what you want from your relationships and what they need from you and it's now all about walking the talk, with communication a key to setting the scene for how you want things to continue. The Moon's return to your communication sector over the weekend will help give your relationships and emotional responses a voice.
When Venus left your relationship sector on the 6th June she left you with a clear sense of what you want from your relationships but it's only now, with the Sun and Mars spending their first full week here that you're able to begin the process of turning that into reality. With Venus been and gone and the Sun now shining the solar spotlight on your relationships, in a warts and all way, you've got a more rounded sense of what you want from your relationships and what they need from you, realising that it's a two way street and that you can't get back what you're not prepared to invest. While the Moon's return to your sign midweek and the Full Moon this creates on Thursday may bring any personal and/or relationship tensions to a head, this is a chance to get everything out in the open.
With a huge amount of focus on your relationships this week with Venus and Jupiter, the planets of love and luck not only aligning in your relationship sector this week but both on especially good terms with communication forces, the spirit of romance could easily be overlooked. When the Sun and Mars left your romantic sector last week they left Mercury, planet of communication behind and due to leave next week himself, he's charged with giving your heart a voice and putting heart and mind on the same page. As the smallest planet in the solar system he's no match for a united relationship front, with a need to take responsibility for finding the right balance. What is clear is that the love gods are smiling on both romantic and relationship matters this week.
When Venus left your romantic sector last month she left you with the romantic desires that form the foundation for all that will transpire on the romantic front this year, something that is now becoming more real. This is thanks to the Sun and Mars' return to your romantic sector last week, the Sun to throw the solar spotlight on matters of the heart and all things romantic and Mars to fuel your romantic passions and fighting spirit, for the first time in 2 years. With Mars due to spend the whole of July in your romantic sector and Mercury returning next week, the romantically charged months of the year are officially underway. The only problem is that so too are the most auspicious months of the year for work matters, with finding a balance between work and play your only problem.
