While a major new relationship chapter began earlier in the month, it is only this week that the full implications become apparent, both by a sense of optimism and confidence you're likely to find earlier in the week and a chance for major new beginnings by the time you reach the weekend's New Moon. Whether single, in a relationship or between relationships there is no doubt that you can sense there is change in the wind, with settling for less or for Mr or Ms Alright for now instead of Mr or Ms Right no longer an option. Yet in one of the most important relationship weeks of the year to date, romantically charged lunar vibes in the early days of the week will do their best to ensure things don't get too serious. At the end of the day this is all about imagining new possibilities, while realising you have to start somewhere.
The love and relationship gods both pull some surprises out of the hat this week and it's all to do with scheduling, making you the benefactor of romantic forces that are running overtime and relationship forces that are running ahead of time. The love gods have one last week to push their case and while holding onto the spirit of romance shouldn't be a problem, the focus this week is on giving your heart a voice and putting heart and mind on the same page. In other words if love is a state of mind, then it's time to adopt the right mind set, not only seeing romance as a choice, but a choice that you need to make. At the same time, while your annual relationship review is still four weeks away the relationship gods are already speaking, not to your head but to your heart, with new relationship yearnings starting to take hold.
While your luckiest year for love and romance in over a decade has officially been underway for several weeks now, it is only this week that the truth is starting to dawn and it isn't coming from anything happening externally. All of a sudden you're waking up to the possibility that love and romance isn't something that belongs to others or belongs in the past, that wherever you are now in your life there are romantic possibilities you haven't been aware of before. It's not that new romantic possibilities are suddenly opening up and more that you're opening up to them, with the love gods opening your eyes to what's in front of you. Whether you're in a romantic drought or you're doing very nicely as you are, where you are now is just a starting point and what the love gods want you to get excited about, is the journey itself.
Wouldn't you just know it, it never rains but it pours. Just as the love gods break the romantic drought and a good month ahead of schedule usher in the most potentially romantically charged weeks of 2016, the relationship gods wake up and decide that this is the week that they'll start paying more attention. As recently as last Friday the only romance available was that which you were able to muster for yourself, while the relationship gods had put things in a self induced slump since as far back as April. The fact that they both spring back to life at the same time suggests something is up and whether single, in a relationship or between relationship, the spirit of romance is in the air at the same time that you're ready for something new from your current or a future relationship. All of a sudden an urge to find a better work/life balance makes senses.
There is a sense of urgency on the romantic front in the early days of the week, with your most impassioned advocate in decades leaving the field, having done his job of fuelling your passions and fighting spirit. However, if you think this is the end of the story it's not, for all that ends in the early part of the week is that the love gods will disengage the fuel line and bring a refuelling operation that began back in early March to an end. With your tanks full of romantic passion and fighting spirit you're ready to go and if anything, this is when the real journey begins. You know what you're fighting for, you know what you want from love and the love gods are no longer buying old excuses. If you're waiting for the perfect time, for the perfect conditions, for you to reach your ideal weight or any other kind of mythical limitation, you'll end up missing out on something special.
While you're not quite out of the woods yet as far as personal and/or relationship tensions are concerned, the communication and relationship gods are working together to make this their last full week of a concerted effort to achieve a communication and/or relationship breakthrough. It now all comes down to having the communication lines open and whether single, in a relationship or between relationships, making a commitment to the journey ahead. Yet while a major relationship chapter is drawing to a close and a new and very exciting romantic chapter is just getting started or it will do soon, the love gods orchestrate a major turnaround in the early days of the week. Just as the tide was naturally ready to turn, your romantic passions and fighting spirit are likely to kick in, bringing a new and sudden urge to fight for love.
This is a week where the personal and/or relationship tensions of the last few weeks start to make sense and can simply be seen as the bar being raised as you move into a period of major personal growth. As you not only move into your new solar year but a new 12 year cycle of growth, a need for personal authenticity and to follow your own personal truth has been triggered in a way there is no going back from and if you're in a relationship, even the best of relationships will be challenged, for as you start to expect more for yourself and from your relationships they are being forced to come along for the ride. If you're single or in between relationships then the next person into your life has to meet much higher standards than even just a few weeks ago and this has forever changed your expectations. The journey starts in earnest this week, with communication essential from the get go.
While there is still a strong sense of romantic nostalgia in the air, the thick fog bank of rosy coloured romantic nostalgia is no longer as all encompassing, clearing enough so that you can see a way forward, but still there in enough quantity that you can escape back into it whenever you want. It's the love gods themselves, that while still holding the doors open to the past and second chances are now encouraging you to move on and almost a month before your birthday month and new solar year is due to begin, they're already looking to the future. This brings you to a crossroads, for while on both the romantic and relationship front there is still a lot of focus on the past, in your heart is a new sense that it's time to move on. The past is a place to visit and gain inspiration from and while the future is a mystery it all of a sudden has your attention.
If everything feels a little hazy on the romantic front this week it's because a fog bank of rosy coloured romantic nostalgia has descended. While there has been a sense of romantic nostalgia in the air for several months and the love gods have even had the doors open to the past and second chances since July, something has shifted that suddenly has your heart spellbound. This is something you don't want to fight and instead need to surrender into, for what the love gods are doing is preparing you for new doors opening in just a few weeks' time. While you've had the chance to revisit the past for several months, what has shifted over the weekend is a yearning that has turned this from something that was an option and into an urge that can't be ignored. This is a chance to dance with some old ghosts, but also rekindle old romantic feelings that will soon be given a new lease of life.
While there may have been some old relationship issues or emotional responses triggered over the weekend, this was more a monthly check in, bringing a reminder of what you want from your relationships and what they need from you, but also a chance to address issues while they're still small, not letting them mount up. Whether single, in a relationship or between relationships this will have brought up something from the past that will allow you to better understand what you want from your relationships and what they need from you, but don't see challenges where there are none. This is all but over by the time you move into the new week, a week that is full of the mysteries that the laws of attraction and synchronicity are brewing up. Something has shifted over the weekend, with the kind of conditions this week that could lead to serendipitous moments and/or encounters.
While you might have to work to keep the spirit of romance alive, with romantically charged lunar vibes in play as recently as late last week, this leaves you with no excuses to hide behind. The biggest problem this week will be finding the right balance between work and play, but if you can master that you'll have a much better chance of keeping the spirit of romance alive. What is good news for your professional game isn't such good news for matters of the heart, but they can't become a casualty unless you let it happen. In the meantime, your relationships do get a boost and the timing couldn't be better. It's on Tuesday that the potential for a major communication turnaround and breakthrough begins, coincidently just as your emotional responses to relationship matters are being triggered. From out of nowhere a chance exists for a communication and/or relationship breakthrough.
The only downside to the romantically charged lunar vibes in play over the weekend is they must come to an end and unfortunately just as your working week is ready to grab your full attention. From the get go move into the week determined to keep the spirit of romance alive, appreciating from the get go the importance of having the right balance between work and play. Yet while the love gods leave it up to you to keep the romantic flame burning and having fuelled it over the weekend are now moving on, the relationship gods are a lot more active. As a major relationship journey nears an end this final week comes down to communication and having spent 15 months establishing what you want from your relationships and what they need from you, the key to the journey ahead lies in having the communication lines open. While there is help now, that won't always be the case.
