Venus' return to your romantic sector over the weekend has been a game changer, returning in retrograde motion to open the doors to second chances and an influx of romantic nostalgia, just as a major push forward is occurring. With Jupiter in his last full week in your romantic sector and not due to return until 2024, the Sun and Mercury on board and Mars returning over the weekend, the love gods have all been summoned to make this final week count and to ensure that this is not the end of the story. An alignment between Venus and Jupiter midweek that is a repeat of their alignment early last month, this time with the doors open to second chances and support to make every opportunity count. Until Mercury leaves work to give your heart a voice and to put heart and mind on the same page.
While Venus' departure from your romantic sector over the weekend could be seen as a disappointment, especially as she was only there for 13 days, support is not only on the way to continue what she started, that support is game changing. With Mercury returning to your romantic sector over the weekend and Jupiter early next week, Venus has left behind the desires and expectations that will form the basis of your luckiest year for love in over a decade, now just a week away. In the meantime, this is a chance to shift the focus back onto your relationships, just as Saturn's direct turn in your relationship sector over the weekend has created a real turning point. No longer focused on the past this is a chance to start building for the future, focused on the journey ahead.
While you don't know it yet, events over the weekend have set the scene for some major relationship advantages over the coming months. The first event was Venus' return to your communication sector on Saturday, where in retrograde motion until early next month she'll bring a chance to give your heart, the past and unsaid words a voice. Not due to leave until October, this puts Venus in your communication sector for an extraordinarily long time, on top of the 6 weeks she has already spent here. The significance behind this is the weekend's second event, which was Saturn's direct turn. This has put Saturn on a 7 week trek back to your relationship sector, something that Venus is already helping you to prepare for. Still on the job when Saturn returns, communication is the way forward.
While Venus' departure from your communication sector over the weekend means you're once more on your own when it comes to ensuring the communication lines are open, but not for long. Before retrograding back out over the weekend Venus gave you a chance to give your heart, relationship, the past and unsaid words a voice something that Mercury will pick up and run with when he returns to your communication sector over the weekend. With more support on the way what Venus started is in good hands and just as well. For it's on Tuesday that Ceres will retrograde back into your relationship sector and with Pluto in retrograde motion here as well this opens the door to second chances. This comes just as the tide turns on the romantic front, shifting the focus there to the future.
It's the two goddesses of the solar system that are not only on the move this week, but change the dynamics completely. When Venus, planet of love left your sign on the 19th July, this should have been the last you'll see of the planet of love for another year, but over the weekend she retrograded back in for a double dip visit, bringing a bucket load of romantic nostalgia and second chances with her. This came during Ceres' final days in your relationship sector and after last Friday's Full Moon put relationship tensions and matters to a head, her departure on Tuesday is going to see personal and/or relationship tensions finally ease back. With the final hurdle crossed Ceres leaves you with a clear sense of what you want from your relationships and what they need from you.
While a sense of romantic nostalgia is only going to deepen this week and your relationship focus will remain on the past, a corner has been turned on the communication front. The week begins with Saturn in his first full day in direct motion in your communication sector and the Moon in your relationship sector taking advantage of this. While the planets in your relationship sector will remain in retrograde motion until November, when the Moon and Saturn get together to give your emotional responses and relationships a voice, the focus won't be on old issues but on moving things forward. In the meantime, a sense of romantic nostalgia will move to a new level, with Ceres retrograding back into your romantic sector on Tuesday, adding to the nostalgia Venus is already creating.
After just 13 days in a nostalgic part of your chart Venus, planet of love retrograded back out over the weekend and while she's still in retrograde motion and will remain so for the next 5 weeks, she's returned to a part of your chart that is able to better support Uranus, in his early weeks in retrograde motion in your relationship sector. It's Venus' return to your friendship sector and also the most social and serendipitous part of your chart that adds to an already important time for friendship and relationship building, by opening the door to second chances and unexpected developments. It's the Moon's visit to your relationship sector midweek that will stir your emotional responses but also highlight the special conditions the relationship gods have cooked up this week.
Moving into the new week with the Moon in your romantic sector will not only get the week off to a romantic start, but will highlight a sense of romantic nostalgia in the air. Yet rather than dissipate when the Moon leaves on Tuesday, it's Mars' final weeks in an adventurous part of your chart, where he's fuelling a passion for adventure and a hunger for life's richer experiences, that will seize on both the spirit of romance and a sense of romantic nostalgia. This comes just as you're likely to sense a personal turning point, with an increase in confidence and entitlement evoking a sense of rebellion, refusing to miss out anymore. Right in the heart of one of your busiest and most important professional weeks of the year, do what you can to keep the spirit of romance and adventure alive.
Uranus, in retrograde motion in your romantic sector until December, is settled into a nostalgic trip down love's memory lane that will dominate the coming months. Yet when Venus retrograded back into an adventurous part of your chart over the weekend it was after having spent 13 days getting a glimpse of the future and what it holds, returning with the news that life is about to become a lot more professionally focused, with clues to that later in the week and then no doubt by early next week. In retrograde motion for the next 5 weeks Venus has teamed up with Uranus to keep the spirit of romance, adventure and nostalgia alive. The love gods are closing ranks in order to ensure a balance between work and play before your biggest professional year in over a decade kicks off.
Moving into the new week with the Moon in your communication sector is always going to be an advantage, but especially when Mars is due to leave your relationship sector at the end of the week. Mars is the last planet standing, with his departure over the weekend not only due to bring his own 6 week visit to an end, but all the planetary activity for the year. At a point in the year where you will already know what you want from your relationships and what they need from you and with Mars giving you the confidence to fight for both, the Moon highlights the support already there to ensure the communication lines are open. Mars and your relationships have a lot of support this week, but the most important is a chance to give your emotional responses and relationships a voice.
The relationship gods have called every available planet to show up to make Jupiter's last full week in your relationship sector for another 11 years count. Even Venus, who left your relationship sector last month has been called back, with her return over the weekend setting the scene for some auspicious encounters, while in retrograde motion she's holding the door open to second chances. While Mercury, planet of communication will leave on Saturday, it won't be before giving you the resources needed to keep the communication lines open. His replacement will arrive on Sunday, with Mars' return just 48 hours before Jupiter is due to leave an 11th Hour shot in the arm, giving you the confidence to start fighting for what you want from your relationships and what they need from you.
While Venus retrograded back out of your relationship sector over the weekend, just 13 days after arriving, has put things on hold the desires and expectations she's left you with are only going to deepen. What you've bought yourself is time, for with lucky Jupiter returning next week to begin your most important and powerful relationship year in over a decade, those desires and expectations will soon have some heavy duty support. Preparations for Jupiter's return began with Venus' return last month, with Mercury's return over the weekend beginning the next phase. Returning on Saturday this gives the planet of communication a 3 day jump on this powerful new relationship year, with a chance to ensure the communication lines are open from the get go, taking over from where Venus left off.
