It's not just the Moon that rushes to lucky Jupiter's aid in the early days of the week, but a raft of support that has the power to turn any romantic tension into motivation. Now in his final month in retrograde motion in your romantic sector Jupiter is under pressure, but from a planet that is pushing for a communication breakthrough and has the ability to challenge your excuses. That planet is Mercury and he's on a mission to see you connect authentically, with this one final roadblock more a chance to wake up to what you might be missing out on. With the coming months some of the luckiest for love in over a decade, these are the right wakeup calls at the right time. The Moon's return to your relationship sector on Saturday will bring a chance to focus on your relationships.
There will be no sugar coating the fact that the week is likely to get off to a bumpy start, but it doesn't represent what kind of week this is destined to be. Keep your love life and relationships in their own bubble, with the focus in the early days of the week more about keeping life's pressures at a safe distance, while working to ensure the communication lines are open. It's later in the week that the good stuff happens, beginning with the Moon's return to your romantic sector on Thursday ahead of Friday's Full Moon. This is a Lovers Moon and as the last Full Moon before lucky Jupiter returns in August to kick off your luckiest year for love in over a decade, the love gods will be using this to kick start romantic processes now, but also that will trigger events further down the line.
Normally it's Saturn, hard task master of the cosmos causing the challenges and especially now that he's in your relationship sector, for the first time in 3 decades. However, this week he's playing the good cop as both he and the Moon rush to lucky Jupiter's aid, as he comes under pressure in the early days of the week. With Saturn in your relationship sector and Jupiter in your communication sector they've been working as a team anyway, so that support was always guaranteed as communication issues and tensions come to a head in the early days of the week. However, it's the Moon's return to your communication sector on Monday that will not only fuel your emotional responses but give them a voice, leading the very real possibility of a communication and/or relationship breakthrough.
Pluto, in your relationship sector from 2008 to 2024, has seen and been through it all and last year in particular was responsible for a huge amount of personal and/or relationship tension, not because he himself caused it, but because of the pressure he was under. When you accept and move through the bad times you also have to accept and appreciate the good times and that's what you have. As you move into a settled relationship period there's a need to avoid the temptation of thinking this is too good to be true or to anticipate problems, especially with things getting even better this week. The Moon's return to your communication sector on Thursday and Full Moon Friday will not only support your relationships, but a chance for a communication and/or relationship breakthrough.
Be prepared for a bumpy start to the week, with an opposition between Mercury in your relationship sector and Jupiter in your sign underway since the weekend. This is the fourth opposition between personal and relationship forces since New Year's Day but it's also the last, bringing personal and/or relationship tensions to a head one last time, this time with support on both sides. The only reason you're experiencing any personal and/or relationship tension is that while this is always a time of year when the focus is on your relationships, it's usually unopposed, in that there are no planets supporting your needs, while this year that's not the case. As the planet of communication Mercury brings an opportunity for a communication and/or relationship breakthrough.
While the week may get off to a bumpy start, with a lot on your plate, this is actually a chance to clearly see the things that are making life more complicated than they need to be. While this isn't coming from or doesn't directly impact your love life or your relationships, they'll benefit from any moves to work smarter and practice smart time management. Your relationships will get a wakeup call later in the week, with the Moon's return to your sign on Thursday and the Full Moon this creates on Friday putting direct pressure on the Sun in your relationship sector. While this is bound to bring some personal and/or relationship tension to a head, this is the Full Moon that will always fall at some point during your annual relationship review, acting as an advocate for your own needs.
The early days of the week are likely to get a little bumpy and this will have some influence on both romantic and relationship forces, but is not a sign that either are in any kind of trouble and if anything they'll both benefit. Mercury, now on his own and in his final weeks in your romantic sector, is the sole survivor of a line up of romantic forces, determined to keep the spirit of romance alive and in the early days of the week he's going head to head with anything standing in his way. At the same time Venus, in the lead up to her midweek alignment with Uranus in your relationship is bringing home the importance of having the right personal/relationship balance. Any tension in the early days is simply romantic and relationship forces pushing through any final resistance.
While the Sun, moving through your romantic sector, is immune from the tensions that are likely in the early days of the week, when work/life balance tensions once more come to a head and will in fact act as an incentive to get it right, he faces his own challenges later in the week, though nothing that isn't expected. At some point during the Sun's month long visit to your romantic sector each year he will be challenged by a Full Moon in a social and serendipitous part of your chart, bringing the wakeup calls that make sure you're not asleep at the wheel. Friday's Full Moon falls just in time for the weekend, waking you up to the Sun's romantic influence and the romantic desires, passions and fighting spirit Venus and Mars left you with. This might come with some serendipitous surprises.
There is something special happening on the romantic front this week, with both a new sense of urgency and confidence setting in. Due to align with Uranus in your romantic sector midweek Venus is already triggering the laws of attraction, while Mars is fuelling your romantic passions and fighting spirit. This comes just as a lot of your excuses are being challenged, especially when it comes to embracing a sense of adventure, with a real breakthrough possible in the early days of the week. At the same time that Venus and Uranus align in your romantic sector midweek, bringing the laws of attraction and synchronicity into play, both form a special alliance with Jupiter in an adventurous part of your chart, bringing a sense of adventure into the mix. There is something magical happening.
While there is likely to be some pressure or tension in the early days of the week, just a small portion of this is being created by Venus, planet of love as she moves through a more domesticated part of your chart. While it might seem bad timing that Venus' push to address any work/life balance issues in a low key way in the early days of the week coincides with an opposition between Mercury and Jupiter, exacerbating any tension out of proportion, Venus won't argue. For by Tuesday Venus will be just 2 weeks away from your romantic sector and the start of the most romantically charged weeks of the year and if a bit of additional pressure gets the job of addressing work/life balance issues done, she'll be happy. Venus is on a mission to make your life as love friendly as possible.
You have one planet to thank for turning what could have been a disastrous few days and will still be a fairly intense few days, into an opportunity for a communication and/or relationship breakthrough. In fact, there are three planets to help, with one giving things the final push to turn this into the opportunity it was always destined to be. You'll move into the new week with Mercury and Jupiter already in opposition, with personal and/or relationship tensions likely to peak in the early days of the week. Eventually, with the planets of communication and luck involved this was going to turn into an opportunity for a communication and/or relationship breakthrough, but what speeds this up is the fact that you've also got Venus, planet of love in your communication sector.
When the Moon's monthly visit to your romantic sector wraps up it's always important to hold onto the romantic sentiment, spirit of romance and intuitive read on your heart this leaves you with, but especially so this week. The Moon will leave your romantic sector on Monday after spending the weekend here, just as tensions are likely to be running high and life's demands are piling high, with most of us likely to be suffering from a severe case of Mondayitis. As well as being able to wear a cloak of romantic sentiment as a protection, this will help boost what the ultimate aim of duelling planets is, which is to find a better balance between work and play. A Full Moon in your relationship sector on Friday may bring some wakeup calls, but also the kind of attention your relationships need.
