There is no better start to the week than with adventurous lunar vibes in play. At such an important point of the year for both romantic and relationship matters, this is a timely reminder that it is all about the journey. And that is exactly what it is, with many twists and turns on the road ahead. The doors are already open to the past and second chances on the relationship front, but there is also some pressure. Yet that won't last forever and brings with it the potential for a breakthrough. This gives a false impression on what an auspicious time this is for both new and existing relationships. The bar is being raised, but only because so much is now possible. At the same time, while romantic matters might appear stalled or stuck all is not what it seems. Here they are also preparing to open the doors to the past and second chances.
Thanks to the Moon's visit to your relationship sector over the weekend, you have a better sense of what you want from your relationships and what they need from you. It is unusual for the Moon to achieve that in just a few days, making its second visit for the year the most important in several months. What made this such a telling visit, is that for the first time in four months your own needs fought back. This may have come as a shock, because until now you didn't have anything advocating for your needs. While the Moon itself brought no challenges, this was a platform to find your own voice. This has also put a new found sense of romantic confidence to the test and chances are it has come through with flying colours. A robust sense of romantic confidence bodes well for the journey ahead.
Starting the week with the Moon in your relationship sector can often be a challenge, evoking strong emotional responses and even pushing buttons. But this time there is nothing but support. There is nothing to fuel any personal and/or relationship tension. At the same time this is your first chance to test the implications from last weekend's lunar eclipse in your communication sector. If this really was an opportunity to get the communication lines moving, then the Moon will fuel the emotional responses that will put this to the test. The Moon will be gone by Tuesday, but it is likely to leave you with a new sense of confidence. Whether single, in a relationship or between relationships, you have a most realistic and confident sense of what you want from your relationships and what they need from you.
Chances are it is a struggle to make time for your relationships and that is with planetary support. What are your chances then of keeping the spirit of romance alive, after the Moon's visit to your romantic sector over the weekend? If you don't try then those chances will be pretty much zero. For this is not only a busy professional week, but you've moved into some massively game changing times on both the work and career fronts. Even Venus, planet of love is unable to help you and won't until early April. With no planetary activity in your romantic sector, when the Moon left over the weekend the only one left to keep the romantic flame burning and those romantically charged lunar vibes alive is you. Surprisingly your relationships should do much better, especially if you work to keep the communication lines open.
You have reached an important week for both romantic and relationship matters, but fortunately one where there are no challenges on either front. The week begins with the Moon in your romantic sector, but it also starts with Mercury now on his own and ready to tie up loose ends on the relationship front. The Sun left your relationship sector over the weekend and with Mercury leaving this weekend, this does create a sense of urgency. Your relationships themselves will continue to receive support throughout the year, but Mercury's final days are essential for having the communication lines open. Whether single, in a relationship or between relationships, this is as much about the conversations you're able to have this week as it is about defining your communication needs. You should know what you want from your relationships and what they need from you.
The Moon will visit both your romantic and relationship sectors this week, so at the very least this was always going to be an important week on both fronts. What wasn't certain, is just how important both visits would be. The Sun's return to your relationship sector has put the spotlight on your relationships, as happens at this time every year. However, it is not the norm to have such a clear sense of what you want from your relationships from the get go. The Sun's early days are more about having your eyes open and head out of the sand. It is over the weekend that everything will start coming together. It starts with Mercury's return to your relationship sector on Sunday and the Moon's return just 77 minutes later. This kicks off a solar eclipse that brings the potential for major new beginnings.
While you can expect relationship tensions and pressure this week, there is no reason to see this as a sign that anything is broken that needs to be fixed. There is huge potential for major relationship building, with Mars in particular pushing his way through old restrictions and barriers. Venus is holding back, ahead of her retrograde turn in your relationship sector later next week, one that will open the doors to the past and second chances. But she is on hand to help turn this week's personal and/or relationship tensions into an opportunity for a breakthrough and an advantage. The only reason things may get tense is that your own needs are fighting back. If there was no pressure your own needs would be completely swept aside. Communication will make all the difference.
This is always the time of year when the solar spotlight falls on your romantic situation and matters of the heart in general. For that reason there was nothing unusual about the Sun's return to your romantic sector over the weekend. However, what wasn't the norm was to not only know what you wanted from the get go, but feeling so confident about your changes. For the first and only time in your lifetime you began the year with Mars and Neptune, the planets of passions and dreams in your romantic sector. Mars didn't leave until late January and Venus, planet of love has even spent a month here. To have such a head start at this point in the year is almost unheard of. The Sun has returned to bring the reality checks needed to turn dreams into reality. There is an element of fate in the air as well.
It is already clear that war has been declared on a romantic rut, with a chance this week that your romantic passions and fighting spirit will go rouge. Venus, planet of love is starting to distance herself from Mars and is dropping back, but not because she doesn't want to be associated with the warrior planet of the cosmos. Mars, making his first visit to your romantic sector in nearly two years, is taking you and your romantic passions and fighting spirit to a place they have never been before. This is the lead up to a rare triple alignment over the weekend, one that could see an explosion of romantic opportunities and some real breakthroughs possible. So why would Venus, planet of love not want to be part of that? Venus has her own agenda, slowing down ahead of a retrograde phase that will open the doors to the past and second chances, later next week.
There are some things that must be taken on face value and not subjected to over thinking. That is especially so when there is every reason to trust what your heart and instincts are telling you and for good reason. It was over the weekend that a rare five day alignment of romantic and adventurous forces ran its course, though with the players still very much in contact. This is not a point in the year where either romantic or adventurous forces are represented, but that all changed over the last few weeks. This was something you had already started to suspect, but last week's developments have confirmed it, at least as far as your heart is concerned. The problem, if there is one, is that there are subtle forces and you might struggle to find evidence. Yet these are linked to very real romantic developments ahead.
If Venus and Mars, the planets of love and passion, are acting like planets on a mission it's because they are. Both are taking communication and especially when it comes to giving your heart and relationships a voice, extremely seriously. So seriously that they have split up, each taking a different approach. This is all about divide and conquer, knowing that even if one fails the other has a chance of succeeding. Of course they will be rooting for both to succeed. What has set off this frenzied approach to getting the communication lines open was a lunar eclipse in your relationship sector. The Moon may have moved on, but this has triggered something there is no going back from. Mars is now totally committed to taking a bulldozer to communication barriers, while Venus tries a more patient and heart felt approach.
While you are unlikely to experience the personal and/or relationship tensions you experienced at this time last year, neither the communication nor relationship gods are leaving anything to chance. From the moment the Sun returned to Pisces over the weekend to begin your birthday month and new solar year, old alarms are likely to have gone off. For this time last year this triggered a huge battle between your personal and relationship needs, a battle that waged for months and dominated much of 2016. Yet it will only take days to realise this is a false alarm, allowing you to stand those defences down. Part of this is because last year's challenges just aren't there. This is also partly because of what you learned as a result, especially in terms of balance, but also communication support.
