The week begins with a magical alignment between Venus and Jupiter in your romantic sector, creating nothing less than a dream start. Having just returned to your romantic sector last week this is Venus' first encounter and alignment with lucky Jupiter here since 2003, not only kicking off the week in a spectacular fashion, but bringing a chance to commit to what has become your luckiest year for love in over a decade. This is a year that won't run its course until August 2015 and it's in these early weeks that you're committing to the journey ahead. While relationship matters might be pushed to the curb by more romantically charged forces, it's more important than ever to ensure the communication lines are open. On the romantic and relationship fronts a corner has been turned.
Mercury, planet of communication is punching above his weight this week, with one of the smallest planets in the solar system competing with a line up of cosmic giants in your relationship sector. Yet having returned to your romantic sector over the weekend Mercury is not only here to give your heart a voice and to put heart and mind on the same page, but has opened the door to the most romantically charged weeks of the year. With the Sun returning to your romantic sector over the weekend and Venus early next month, romantic forces will eventually balance out the dominant relationship forces in play, but for now the spirit of romance is still new, fragile and needs to be protected. With new romantic possibilities in the air and powerful relationship forces anything is now possible.
With the spirit of romance something that is now a permanent fixture and something that will take little effort to maintain, having become something you can tap into whenever you want, the focus is starting to shift to the future and your relationships. While Mars won't return to your relationship sector until next month, when he does he'll begin the build up for what will eventually become some of the most powerful relationship forces in decades, opening the door to a chapter that won't run its course until 2018. Yet already this is something that Venus, planet of love is already preparing for. Having returned to your communication sector last week, Venus' first full week is all about giving your heart a voice and working to ensure the communication lines are open.
When Venus, planet of love left your sign last week she left you with the romantic and relationship desires and expectations that will define the coming year, but she also left them in the safekeeping of the love gods that are here to make things happen now. With the personal and/or relationship tensions of the past gone and Mercury, planet of communication having returned to your communication sector over the weekend, conditions on the relationship front have completely turned around. At the same time you've got some of the most powerful forces ever to assemble on the romantic front, making this the week where you need to start turning Venus' desires and expectations into reality, while at the same time realising that on both fronts it's all about the journey.
Where last week began with a Full Moon in your relationship sector, one that brought your personal and relationship needs into conflict and therefore revealed what they were, it's important to hold onto the message and the insight this brought without holding onto any challenges this created. At a time of personal growth this is going to put pressure on your relationships to grow and evolve, which is something your relationships can't help but benefit from. The key to both personal and relationship growth is working to ensure the communication lines are open in a real and authentic way. In the meantime, as she spends her first full week in your sign Venus, planet of love is fuelling your romantic and relationship desires and expectations, as well as triggering the laws of attraction.
On first impressions Mercury's return to your sign over the weekend seems to have stirred things up, with his opposition with relationship forces on Monday likely to bring personal and/or relationship tensions to a head. Yet you know you can't always judge by first impressions and especially not in this case, for while this is likely to stir things up and push some buttons, it's for all the right reasons. It's Mercury's opposition with Neptune, in retrograde motion in your relationship sector that is going to challenge old beliefs and assumptions, especially where you've been ignoring any home truths. Yet at the same time this comes with the means and the potential for a communication and/or relationship breakthrough and to create something real and authentic.
As she spends her first full week in a social and serendipitous part of your chart Venus is not only working with the laws of attraction and synchronicity, but has luck on her side. It's an alignment with lucky Jupiter in the early days of the week that sets the scene for some serendipitous moments or encounters that reveal that you really do have luck and the love gods on your side. Where last week's Full Moon in your romantic sector brought the spirit of romance back into play or at the very least brought reminders of your romantic needs, Venus is now working behind the scenes to put you in the right place at the right time. This makes it important to trust your heart and your hunches, but also to stay in the moment. In the meantime, work to keep the communication lines open.
As you move into the new week the Moon's monthly visit to your relationship sector is wrapping up, a visit that may have pushed a few buttons, evoked some strong emotional responses and even some personal and/or relationship tensions over the weekend. While the Moon visits each month this was the first visit since you began to take your personal power back, which has put both your personal and relationship needs and especially a balance between the two, to the test. When the Moon leaves your relationship sector on Monday there will be nothing for any tensions to hold onto, at a time when you've got a new level of support and confidence on the communication front. It won't take much to turn this into an opportunity for communication and/or relationship breakthrough.
Thanks to the Moon's visit to your romantic sector late last week, the first since Uranus turned retrograde here, you've not only had a chance to tap into a sense of romantic nostalgia, but to appreciate what you've been missing out on. This comes just as Venus, planet of love is not only spending her first full week in an adventurous part of your chart but begins the week aligned with lucky Jupiter, bringing a reminder that it's not only all about the journey, but a journey that is well supported. This is something that your relationships will surreptitiously benefit from, all because of fluke timing. It's the Moon's return to your relationship sector on Monday that allows your emotional and intuitive responses to relationship matters to also become infected by this adventurous energy.
When Venus left your relationship sector last week she took with her the personal and/or relationship tension that has been a regular fixture over the last 16 months, while leaving you with a clear sense of what you want from your relationships and what they need from you. Your relationships have been on an incredible journey since April 2013, yet for the first time since then you've moved into a week where there is no planetary activity. This makes the Moon's return midweek so important, for this gives you a chance to tie up loose ends and as your emotional and intuitive responses kick in, to what still needs your attention. Yet, for the first time for a long time, it's not all about your relationships, with a sense of romance and adventure in the air as you move into the new week.
Venus, planet of love's first full week in your relationship sector is off to a flying start, not only aligned with lucky Jupiter in the early days of the week, but the Moon returning to your romantic sector on Monday to bring some romantic perspective. This is Venus' first encounter with Jupiter in your relationship sector since 2003 and this is set to have a huge impact in what is the final days of your annual relationship review. By the time the Sun leaves your relationship sector on Saturday you'll not only be aware of where your relationships stands, with an authentic new starting point, but you'll have a whole new sense of what's possible. This is just the start of an incredible new relationship journey but it's clear that you've got luck and the love gods on your side.
There is a fairly abrupt shift in focus this week or so it will seem in the early days of the week. For the first time since April 2013 you're moving into a week where there is no planetary activity in your romantic sector, thanks to Venus' departure last week, but for the first time this year you'll also find that the focus has shifted to your relationships over the weekend. As he spends his first full week in your relationship sector Mercury is pushing buttons and there could even be some personal and/or relationship tension, yet as the planet of communication he's stirring things up in order to get things out in the open. This makes the Moon's return to your romantic sector midweek a welcome chance to tap into the romantic sentiment you may have taken for granted before.
