So high you can't get over it. So wide you can't get around it and so low you can't get under it. No, I'm not referring to the old gospel song, but this week's total solar eclipse in your romantic sector. Wherever you are on the globe, whether you get to witness this or not, this is a profound event that will speak to the heart of every Aries on the planet. The Moon returned over the weekend, so you begin the week with romantically charged lunar vibes already in effect. Yet whatever this eclipse of the heart triggers in the early days of the week, is just the beginning. The Moon leaves on Tuesday and the Sun on Wednesday, so they won't stick around to witness what together they will trigger. Yet Mars will continue to fuel your romantic passions and fighting spirit for another two weeks and Venus, planet of love will return over the weekend to exploit the solar eclipse and anything it might trigger.
Matters of the heart gets some heavy duty support this week and I am talking the biggest, fattest and most powerful force in the solar spotlight. The Sun itself will return to your romantic sector on Tuesday, four weeks after Mercury returned to give your heart a voice and 10 days after the planet of money turned retrograde here. With Venus, planet of love in your communication sector until Saturday, from the get go you've got the means to give your heart, the past and unsaid words a voice. What the Sun will do is shine the solar spotlight on matters of the heart, but also onto the road ahead. With Mercury due to retrograde back out of your romantic sector early next week, between them they'll cover the past, present and future. Their alignment could see this all come together over the weekend.
If you're going to have a total solar eclipse in your communication sector, then the communication gods couldn't have chosen a better week. Regardless of whether there was any cosmic focus on your relationships or not, the early part of the week was always going to create an opportunity for a communication and/or relationship breakthrough. Even before the Moon aligns with the Sun to create the solar eclipse, an alignment with Mars on Monday was going to help push through any remaining communication barriers. With Saturn not only in your relationship sector but turning direct here over the weekend, the eclipse falls in his final days in retrograde motion. Not due to retrograde here for another 28 years, this is a massive opportunity to not only give your relationships, the past and unsaid words a voice, but to start moving on. There is support both before and after the tide turns.
In a week where there is a lot happening across the income, work and career fronts, this should be a threat for romantic and relationship matters. Yet even a solar eclipse is no match for Venus, planet of love as she spends her final days in Cancer. Before leaving over the weekend, Venus is charged with cementing your romantic and relationship desires and expectations for the coming year. Your relationships are having no trouble finding their voice and even during the eclipse at the start of the week, you will find strong responses to relationship matters. It is on the romantic front that some blind faith is required. For less than seven weeks after Venus leaves Cancer over the weekend, your luckiest year for love in over a decade will kick off. Romantically charged lunar vibes that kick in just hours after Venus leaves Cancer should help with that.
It is no surprise that a week that begins with a total solar eclipse in Leo would have some wildcards up its sleeve. For a week that starts with the promise of some major new beginnings for you personally, will also host a massive romantic turnaround over the weekend. The week begins and continues with a deepening sense of romantic nostalgia. With Saturn in his final days in retrograde motion in your romantic sector and Venus in her final days in a nostalgic part of your chart, this takes a nostalgic trip down love's memory lane to a whole new level. The tide turns dramatically and within hours on Saturday. It begins with Saturn's direct turn in your romantic sector and is followed just hours later by Venus, planet of love's return to Leo. Venus will return to find Mars already in Leo, fuelling your passions and fighting spirit, but also keeping the eclipse energy alive.
A week that not only begins with nostalgic lunar vibes in play but a solar eclipse here, is the perfect stepping stone to a sense of romantic nostalgia that is set to deepen over the weekend. This will create a remarkable turnaround for romantic matters, in more ways than one. It is Venus, planet of love's return to a nostalgic part of your chart on Saturday that will bring you to the end of your current Venus cycle of love. This marks the start of a nostalgic trip down love's memory lane that will continue until Venus returns to Virgo later next month. With Pluto in retrograde motion in your romantic sector, this will see Venus tap into the romantic nostalgia he is already fuelling. This is the turnaround, for over the last few weeks Venus has been in opposition with Pluto, bringing all kinds of wakeup calls. Maybe this is why?
With so much going on this week, there could be a danger of missing something remarkable and irreplaceable going on. That something is a massively powerful opportunity to give your relationships, the past and unsaid words a voice. Why there is a danger that this could be missed, is that you have had this opportunity for months now. Not only that, you had the same opportunity in the middle months of last year and the year before that. That opportunity is having Saturn, in retrograde motion in your communication sector. Since arriving in 2014 Saturn has sought out both planets in your relationship sector, but it was only late last year that they finally came together. Uranus and Eris will remain in retrograde motion in your relationship sector for the rest of the year. However, when Saturn turns direct over the weekend this will end his last retrograde phase on the communication front for another 28 years.
Venus is a planet on a mission and she seems to be facing insurmountable odds, until we remember that she is the planet of love and she thrives on a challenge. Saying 'no' to Venus and her mission to bring a sense of romance and adventure together, is the same as tying to take a favourite toy off a toddler. Due to leave an adventurous part of your chart over the weekend, Venus has spent the last three weeks teaming up with romantic forces. With the doors open to the past and second chances on the romantic front, this has brought a sense of romance, adventure and nostalgia together. Venus is on a mission to make her final days count, but she has to compete with a solar eclipse in your career sector and massive of developments across the income, work and career fronts. However, Venus won't be taking excuses.
With no more planets in your relationship sector until 2018 and both planets in your romantic sector in retrograde motion for the rest of the year, things have quietened down on both fronts. It was the Moon's visit to your relationship sector last week, the first since Venus left just two weeks earlier that brought a chance to regroup. This may have pushed some buttons, but has left you with a clear sense of what you want from your relationships and what they need from you. Whether it is your relationships moving forward or the doors open to the past and second chances on the romantic front, it now becomes all about the journey. This is what makes Venus' return to an adventurous part of your chart over the weekend timely. For when the spirit of romance and adventure comes together this is what the planet of love herself will be promoting.
If there is any relationship tension at the start of the week the timing couldn't be better, nor more important. In the first half of the week Ceres, queen of nurturing will be in opposition with Pluto, planet of change and revolution. Ceres is making her first visit to your relationship sector in four years and this will be just her third opposition with Pluto in Capricorn in your lifetime. Ceres is called the queen of nurturing because her job is to ensure your needs are nurtured and here she is focused on your relationship needs. An opposition with Pluto has your personal and relationship needs go head to head, with planets absolutely committed to their cause. This has never and will never happen again while Venus is in your relationship sector, in your lifetime. With Venus not leaving until the weekend, this is a chance to get to the very heart of what you want from your relationships and what they need from you.
A lunar eclipse earlier in the month put the Sun and Moon in opposition and therefore your personal and relationship needs. This may have seen your personal and relationship needs clash. This time, this week's solar eclipse is an alignment between the Sun and Moon, both in your relationship sector. Yet while this puts the focus on your relationships, at its core it is still a battle to find an authentic balance between your personal and relationship needs. The Moon returned to your relationship sector over the weekend, with eclipse energy in play from the get go. With the Moon gone by Tuesday and the Sun by Wednesday, this puts a lot of focus on your relationships in the early part of the week. Yet with Venus not returning to your relationship sector until the weekend and Mercury not retrograding back in until next week, whatever this triggers is just the start of a journey towards something real and authentic.
Venus and Mercury, the planets of love and communication, have their work cut out for them or so you might think. With Mercury in his last full week in your relationship sector and Venus her final days in your romantic sector, this is an important week for both. Ideally, what you need is a nice quiet professional week, so there is plenty of time for matters of the heart and your relationships. Instead you get a week that begins with a solar eclipse on the work front and ends with a massive career turnaround underway. Fortunately Venus thrives on competition and any attempts to put romance on the back burner will be met with a rebellion. Not only in his last full week in your relationship sector but his last full week in retrograde motion, Mercury is on a mission to give your relationships, the past and unsaid words a voice. Fortunately the Moon's return to your relationship sector on Tuesday and the Sun's on Wednesday will give your relationships the validation they need.
