Venus' return to your communication sector over the weekend and Jupiter's direct turn in your romantic sector last week brings you to a very different week, with conditions on both the relationship and romantic fronts having changed dramatically. It was just over a week ago that a lunar eclipse in your relationship sector over Easter brought personal and/or relationship tensions to a head, yet already with Venus on board there's a chance to turn this into an opportunity for a communication and/or relationship breakthrough. At the same time the tide has turned on the romantic front, with the only way to go from here is up. From this point on romantic and relationship conditions will only improve, with the challenges of the past dropping their hold on you as a new era begins.
Venus, planet of love's departure from your sign over the weekend has not only left you with the romantic and relationship desires and expectations that will define the coming year, but the means to walk the talk. Your birthday month and new solar year doesn't even begin until next week yet already you know what you want from love and your relationships with Mars, warrior planet of the cosmos staying behind to ensure those expectations aren't forgotten. It's Mars' passions and fighting spirit that is giving you the confidence and the courage to walk the talk, but the love gods still require a degree of blind faith. For what they know and you don't is that in just a few months time your luckiest year for love in over a decade will kick off, with the bar set to that height.
While your birthday month and new solar year won't begin until later next month Venus has got a major jump on things, with her return to your sign over the weekend giving her and your heart the first say on what you want from the future. Having returned just a week after Easter's total lunar eclipse in your romantic sector and immediately teaming up with fellow goddess of the solar system Ceres in an adventurous part of your chart, all of a sudden the spirit of romance is being fuelled. It's on Monday and Tuesday that Venus and Ceres will be in their tightest alliance, bringing the spirit of romance and adventure together, on day one of a new cycle of love. This will put your relationships on notice, with Venus here to police a balance between your personal and relationship needs.
In case there wasn't already enough focus on your relationships you'll move into the new week with the Moon's monthly visit to your relationship sector just wrapping up, fuelling your emotional responses and getting your attention. The timing couldn't be better, for with Pluto due to turn retrograde in your relationship sector on Wednesday, it's in those final days in direct motion that you're able to look to the future and establish what you want from your relationships and what they need from you, before beginning a 5 month relationship review. Pluto isn't alone with Pallas, goddess of creative intelligence having returned last week. While only here for 22 days she's here at a critical point of the year for your relationships, keeping things real and the communication lines open.
It was Ceres' return to your relationship sector over Easter that began the repair or the rebuilding process after a series of oppositions between personal and relationship forces created a lot of personal and/or relationship tension in the early months of the year. This week things get a lot easier for Ceres, dwarf planet and goddess of the solar system, thanks in part to Venus' return to a social and serendipitous part of your chart over the weekend and the Moon's return to your relationship sector on Monday. As the Moon, Venus and Ceres come together in the early days of the week this will create some auspicious days for friendship and relationship building, with the laws of synchronicity in effect, setting the scene for some serendipitous moments or encounters.
The Moon will visit both your romantic and relationship sectors this week, giving you a read on forces that settle in for the long haul. You'll move into the week with the Moon just leaving your romantic sector, but having spent the weekend here with a lot of romantic sentiment in the air. With Pluto turning retrograde in your romantic sector on Wednesday, beginning a 5 month review phase that will hold the doors open to the past and second chances, this will stir your heart's emotional responses and the spirit of romance just when you need to embrace both. It's midweek that the Moon will return to your relationship sector for the first time since your annual review ran its course, giving you a better sense of what you want from your relationships and what they need from you.
You've reached an important week for both matters of the heart and your relationships and while both will argue that their agenda is the more important, if you have to choose one or the other, which you don't, then your relationships need to come first. While you not only begin the week with the Moon's return to your romantic sector on Monday, which will highlight what was already the coming together of romantic and adventurous forces, both are here to stay. On the other hand you're in the final push to put your relationships on the course they'll continue on and is something you can't put off. With Mercury leaving your relationship sector on Wednesday, a New Moon over the weekend and the Sun leaving next week the time to commit to your relationships and the journey ahead is now.
While it's all about your relationships this week, the Moon's return to your romantic sector midweek will bring a chance to tie up loose ends on your romantic intentions for the coming year. With Venus having left your relationship sector over the weekend, Mercury returning on Wednesday, the Moon over the weekend and the Sun next Monday you move into a phase this week where, having established what you want from your relationships you've got the support and resources needed to walk the talk. Romantic forces on the other hand have had their run, with the Moon's return on Wednesday a reminder of the romantic intentions banked and a chance to tap back into the spirit of romance. In a week dominated by relationship forces the love gods are keeping the romantic flame burning.
With the Sun spending his last full week in your romantic sector, Mercury leaving on Wednesday and a New Moon over the weekend it would seem that the love gods are busy enough just keeping the spirit of romance in full flight, with one last push to get matters of the heart over the line, but apparently not. Already planning for what will happen once a romantic push eases back next week the focus is already shifting to your relationships thanks to Venus, planet of love's return to your relationship sector over the weekend. With the Moon returning to your communication sector on Monday, during Venus' first full day in your relationship sector you're able to ensure that the communication lines are open from the get go. This is a partnership that will continue for several weeks.
Venus's departure from your romantic sector over the weekend has left you with the desires and expectations that will define what you expect from love over the coming year, before your birthday month and new solar year even begins. This also sets the scene for something special in the early days of the week, with the lid taken off your romantic passions and fighting spirit, leaving them with no filter and no excuses to hide behind. While Mars is spending 6 weeks in your romantic sector the few days from Venus' departure and Mercury's return on Wednesday are the only days he'll spend on his own, with your romantic passions and fighting spirit unbridled. This is enough to turn you into a romantic warrior and knowing what you want from love start fighting to make it happen.
It's hard to say what's more important, but together you've got an extraordinary week for both romantic and relationship matters, with a corner having been turned on both fronts. In retrograde motion in your relationship sector since early December Jupiter's first full week back in direct motion is a chance to look to the future and with support from the Sun and Mercury in your communication sector to move on. There is no doubt that the tide has turned and with a clear sense of what you want from your relationships the real journey begins. Not to be outdone the love gods pull out the big guns on the romantic front, with Venus' return to your romantic sector over the weekend kicking off the most romantically charged weeks of the year, just as your relationships have turned a corner.
While the love gods are playing undercover roles this week they are none the less important. While domestic and communication matters hardly seem the realm of the love gods that's exactly where the focus is this week and for good reason. It was Venus' return to your home and family sector over the weekend that has put her into preparation mode, for returning to your romantic sector early next month this is a chance to begin the process of making your life as love friendly as possible. At the same time, with your most important relationship year in over a decade now just a matter of months away with Mars already in your communication sector and Mercury, planet of communication returning midweek, the mission to ensure the communication lines are open moves to a whole new level.
