A week that begins on a romantic note is set to end on not just a relationship note but a dramatic one at that. In fact, the contrast between the early and final days of the week couldn't be more extreme, making it important to look at this as a divided week. The week begins with the Moon in your romantic sector, with one last visit while lucky Jupiter is in retrograde motion bringing a sense of romantic nostalgia into play, while the doors to the past and second chances are still open. With the Moon not leaving until Wednesday the majority of this short working week will be clothed in a sense of romantic nostalgia. Over Easter things swing towards your relationships, with a lunar eclipse in your relationship sector drawing your attention to relationship matters in a dramatic way.
With Venus not due to leave your sign until later next week but having already spent long enough here to establish herself there is a new sense of confidence setting in, as you start to trust your heart and what it's telling you. Venus is on a mission to define your romantic and relationship desires and expectations for the coming year and while she'll get to your relationships next week, this week is all about your romantic desires and expectations, with some stunning developments midweek, just in time for the lead up to Easter. It all happens on Wednesday when Mars, warrior planet of the cosmos returns to your sign less than 2 hours before the Moon's return to your romantic sector, all of a sudden whipping up a cocktail of emotional romantic responses and passion.
This is a week of two halves, so great is the contrast between where things stand at the start of the week and what is set to transpire over the long weekend. To begin with the focus is on your relationships, as the Moon's last visit to your communication sector while lucky Jupiter is in retrograde motion here and the first since Saturn turned retrograde in your relationship sector is creating a rare opportunity for a major communication breakthrough, especially when it comes to giving the past, your relationships and unsaid words a voice. With the Moon here until Wednesday the early part of the week is all about communication and your relationships. Over the weekend things change dramatically, with a lunar eclipse in your romantic sector over the long weekend.
While, with Venus not leaving a social and serendipitous part of your chart until later next week and with Mars returning midweek to make this even more special, giving you the courage and confidence to make the most of serendipitous moments or encounters, this is a week that belongs to your relationships. Rather than being miffed by her thunder being stolen this is something that Venus endorses, throwing the full weight of her support behind fellow goddess Ceres, who is spending her last full week in your relationship sector. This creates a special week for friendship and relationship building, especially when it comes to getting a sense of what's possible. A mission to define what you want from your relationships gets support midweek to ensure the communication lines are open.
A week that begins as nothing out of the ordinary is set to end as something extraordinary, with a need to see this as a week that is taken one step at a time. In the early days of the week there will be a mix of romantic confidence and communication pressure, as the love gods seem to be up to something behind the scenes. With the doors open to second chances on the romantic front, this will be evident in the early days of the week, with a sense of romantic nostalgia in the air. It's later in the week that you'll appreciate the benefit of any communication wakeup calls. For it's over Easter that Ceres, dwarf planet and goddess of the solar system will return to your relationship sector, followed by a lunar eclipse in your communication sector, unleashing something game changing.
There is a sense of urgency on the relationship front as you move into the new week which Venus, planet of love is doing her best to put into perspective. With Mercury, planet of communication leaving your relationship sector on Tuesday any urgency surrounds one last push, especially on Monday to ensure the communication lines are open. Yet with Venus in an adventurous part of your chart she's bringing a reminder that it's all about the journey, for with Neptune and Chiron staying on the only real urgency surrounds ensuring the communication lines are open. The real relationship journey begins once Mercury leaves and an active 3 months for relationship matters runs its course, one designed to redefine what you want from your relationships and what they need from you.
Your relationships may take you on a bit of a roller coaster ride this week, but the support is there to ultimately achieve a communication and/or relationship breakthrough, especially over the weekend. The week begins with Mars in his final days in your relationship sector and before leaving on Wednesday things could get a little heated. Mercury's return on Tuesday finally brings the means and support to ensure the communication lines are open. Things will ease back when Mars leaves only to flare up again over the weekend, when a total lunar eclipse is likely to bring personal and/or relationship tensions to a head. However, with Mercury on board and Ceres returning to your romantic sector just hours earlier, this is when a communication and/or relationship breakthrough is possible.
There is a change of focus this week, with dominant romantic forces giving way to relationship forces, which is where the power balance will shift this week. As you move into the new week things are still fairly balanced, with Mercury's final hours in your romantic sector coming just as Venus is already putting the focus on your relationships. Yet Mercury's departure from your romantic sector on Tuesday will see matters of the heart take a back seat, but only after spending the last 3 months getting a sense of what you want from love, with the real journey just beginning. It's just a day later that Mars' return to your relationship sector will put even more focus on your relationships, returning to fire up your passions and your fighting spirit in his first visit in 2 years.
The love gods take one player off the field and put another one in this week, ensuring that the spirit of romance never goes off the boil, but this will change the dynamics of the game. Until leaving your romantic sector on Wednesday Mars, warrior planet of the cosmos is firing up your romantic passions and fighting spirit and with some adventurous lunar vibes in play during his final days there'll be a real push to break out of a romantic rut. With the Sun and Uranus staying on there was never any danger that the spirit of romance would go off the boil once Mars leaves, but Mercury's return on Tuesday will change the dynamics. Mercury doesn't have Mars' passion and warrior energy, here instead to give your heart a voice and to put heart and mind on the same page.
A combination of having Venus return to your romantic sector much earlier in the year than last year, as in two months earlier and Easter falling a little earlier this year as well, means that for the first time since 2007 she's here over Easter, promising something special over the long weekend. However, while you'll move into the week with Venus on her own in your romantic sector she won't end the week on her own, with Mars' return on Wednesday changing things dramatically. Returning for his first visit in 2 years Mars is here to fuel your romantic passions and fighting spirit, adding fuel to the sense of romance and the romantic desires and expectations Venus is already evoking, giving you the courage to follow your heart. This will help counteract the week's professional resurgence.
There is something special in the early days of the week that needs to be ring fenced. You'll move into the week with the Moon in your relationship sector, making one last visit while Jupiter is in retrograde motion and while the doors are open to the past. As the Moon's first visit since Mercury left your sign and last before Ceres returns over the weekend, this is the first monthly visit since late November that won't bring personal and/or relationship tensions to a head and the last for another 4 months, with this stand alone visit coming just when support from communication forces also peaks. While the Moon is still in your relationship sector Mercury, will return to your communication sector on Tuesday, with the potential for a communication and/or relationship breakthrough.
The timing of the Moon's return to your relationship sector midweek couldn't be better, especially as it may come with some emotional baggage. While this may push a few buttons and bring any personal and/or relationship tensions to a head, you're a lot more ready for it than you were last month, able to turn this into a massive blessing in disguise. That's because what you have now that you didn't have last month is Venus in your communication sector, but the real game changer is Mars' return and his impeccable sense of timing. Mars will return to your communication sector less than 2 hours before the Moon returns to your relationship sector. As your emotional responses kick in so too will your fighting spirit, creating the potential for a communication and/or relationship breakthrough.
