While Mercury's departure from your relationship sector over the weekend meant that keeping the communication lines open is now up to you, it's not only temporary, but there is some extra special support arriving this week. Mercury, planet of communication will turn retrograde at the end of the week, setting the scene for a return early next month, with an opportunity for second chances, especially for giving the past and unsaid words a voice. In the meantime, while your annual relationship review continues Venus, planet of love's return on Tuesday puts a whole new spin on things. There is no doubt that your relationships have been through a roller coaster ride this year, but with so much water having passed under the bridge Venus' return signals the start of the rebuilding process.
You're not just moving into the week with the Moon in your relationship sector, evoking strong emotional responses but Mercury as well. Monday is Mercury's first full day here sector and to have the Moon stirring your emotional responses will ensure the planet of communication has plenty to work with from the get go, though without any urgency. Already slowing down ahead of his retrograde turn over the weekend, opening the door to second chances and especially to giving the past and unsaid words a voice, Mercury knows how important communication will be over the coming weeks and months, so he wants you to slow down and do it right. Where there is some urgency is on the romantic front, with a need to hold onto the spirit of romance before Venus leaves your romantic sector on Tuesday.
There is something special in the air, with conditions improving dramatically on the romantic front, while a bumpy start to Mars' return to your relationship sector evens out. Between Mercury's departure from your romantic sector on Sunday and Venus' return on Tuesday, the Sun has just one day on his own, making Monday all about looking at matters of the heart objectively, while keeping your eyes open and head out of the sand. It's when Venus returns on Tuesday that the most romantically charged weeks of the year will kick off, weeks that will include both new opportunities and second chances. In the meantime, the Moon's return to your relationship sector on Monday and alignment with Mars will fuel your emotional responses, bringing a clearer sense of what you're fighting for.
Things are looking good on both the romantic and relationship fronts as you move into the new week and on both fronts it all hinges on communication. You'll not only move into the new week with the Moon in your romantic sector but with Mercury, planet of communication on board. Monday is Mercury's first full day in your romantic sector, on a new mission to give your heart a voice and to put heart and mind on the same page. While Monday is Mercury's first full day in your romantic sector it's also Venus, planet of love's last full day in your communication sector, where she's on the same mission. This puts a lot of focus on ensuring your heart has a voice and the communication lines are open just as there is support on both the romantic and relationship fronts to move things on.
While Mars' first week in your romantic sector got off to a bumpy start as you move into his third week you're able to appreciate why you needed those wakeup calls. When Mars returned on the 14th September the Moon almost immediately moved into opposition, yet fast forward 8 days and the Moon's return to your romantic sector on Monday will bring a very different story. It's during the early days of the week, with the Moon stirring your heart's emotional responses and Mars firing up your romantic passions and fighting spirit, that you'll get your first real sense of what you're fighting for and that the love gods are no longer buying into your excuses. While you'll have a chance to focus on your relationships over the weekend, it's the spirit of romance that will dominate.
It's not often that Venus' departure from your sign is a good thing, but this time it really is, for it takes all the pressure off your relationships, leaving you with a clear sense of what you want from your relationships and what they need from you, just as there is a romantic comeback in play. While the relationship journey will continue, especially when it comes to the healing process and developing your relationship expectations, it's on the romantic front that there is some real progress possible. While the tide turned when Pluto turned direct in your romantic sector last week it's only now that you're likely to start seeing signs that the spirit of romance and rebellion are fighting back. Move into the new week not only listening to your heart, but prepared to follow its lead.
While there is a sense of romantic nostalgia in the air as you move into the new week it won't last for long, with Monday the last full day of a nostalgic trip down love's memory lane. While it's Venus' return to your sign on Tuesday that will bring you to the start of a new Venus cycle of love, one that is focused on moving on and redefining your romantic and relationship desires and expectations for the coming year, it's the past that will be holding your heart ransom in the early hours of the week. While your heart is still in a nostalgic mood the Moon's return to your communication sector will take advantage of the doors to the past open on the relationship front, with a chance to give the past and unsaid words a voice. The love gods are planning a romantically charged weekend.
There is already a sense of romantic nostalgia in the air as you move into the new week and has been for several months, but in one fell swoop this not only becomes more enjoyable but a lot more intense from Tuesday. For the last few weeks not only Venus, but before her the Sun and Mercury have all put pressure on romantic forces as they moved through a social and serendipitous part of your chart, providing the wakeup calls they'll bring at this time every year. Venus' departure on Tuesday takes away any pressure and with both planets in your romantic sector both in retrograde motion this is when a sense of romantic nostalgia will rebound. Venus' return to a nostalgic part of your chart on Tuesday takes this to extremes, beginning her own nostalgic trip down love's memory lane.
Things get both harder and easier for all things romantic this week and it's all because of Venus. Uranus, in retrograde motion in your romantic sector is enjoying a huge amount of support, holding the door open to second chances and serendipitous developments. However, as the Sun and from Tuesday Venus, move through a social and serendipitous part of your chart, they're moving into opposition, providing the wakeup calls needed to ensure you're not asleep at the wheels. While the real pressure won't come until next week, it's important to realise these aren't wakeup calls to issues that need addressing, but to what you might be missing out on. Meanwhile, with the laws of attraction and synchronicity in effect expect the unexpected, with some serendipitous moments or encounters likely.
Due to leave an adventurous part of your chart on Tuesday Venus is urging you to move into the new week embracing a sense of romance and adventure, holding onto to both when the planet of leaves. With no planetary activity keeping the spirit of romance and adventure alive once Venus leaves, overdosing on both is a must in the early hours of the week. This may trigger a case of Mondayitis, in which case embrace rather than fight it, for things are starting to become a lot more professionally focused. Your aim is to capture the spirit of romance and adventure and keep it safe in a part of your chart that can be accessed when life is in danger of becoming all work and no play. This is also a reminder that on both the romantic and relationship fronts it's all about the journey.
At the same time that things are settling down to a predictable rhythm on the relationship front, with plenty of support to keep the communication lines open and to make friendship and relationship building a priority, there is something special developing on the romantic front this week. With lucky Jupiter in your relationship sector until August 2015 and no planetary activity in your romantic sector, the love gods are mainly focused on your relationships, with the one exception being Venus, planet of love. While Venus spent a lot of time last month and in the early days of this month bringing a clearer sense of what you want from your relationships and what they need from you, she's working now to fuel your romantic passions and a sense of romantic adventure.
During her last full day in your relationship sector on Monday, before leaving on Tuesday Venus, planet of love has a big weight on her shoulders. As the last planet to move through your relationship sector for the year Venus knows that when she leaves there'll be no more support until mid 2015, but also just how important your relationships are set to become. When Venus leaves on Tuesday this will bring a period of 6 weeks and 3 days to an end, when the love gods put all their resources into defining what you want from your relationships and what they need from you, needing to bring some wakeup calls in order to get your attention. In Venus' final hours and as she leaves that comes to an end, yet at the same time this is when the real journey towards walking the talk begins.
