The Moon is having a big influence on both romantic and relationship matters this week and for all the right reasons this time. You'll move into the week with the Moon not only in your romantic sector but aligned with Jupiter, for the first time since he turned direct earlier in the month. As well as a chance to tap into the spirit of romance, this will bring the first real evidence that the tide has in fact turned, with the most expansive months for matters of the heart and all things romantic in over a decade now stretching out in front of you. Meanwhile, the Moon's return to your relationship sector on Friday and position here over the weekend sets the scene for something special. As the only visit while Venus is in your communication sector a breakthrough is possible.
While the Moon's return to your relationship sector on Sunday will set the scene for next Monday's Full Moon, its real influence won't be felt until next week. This gives you permission to put relationship matters on hold until the end of the week, leaving the majority of the week free to embrace the spirit of romance, as the Moon makes a timely visit to your romantic sector. While you can't afford to stick your head in the sand when it comes to relationship matters, but with a chance to get a better read on things in the final hours of this week and even more so in the early days of next week, there's nothing to be gained by jumping the gun. In the meantime, the Moon's visit to your romantic sector midweek is a chance to tap into the spirit of romance and boost your romantic confidence.
In what may appear to be a case of bad timing, the best part of the week for communication is in the early days, yet the time when you need to have the communication lines open won't come until the end of the week. Moving into the new week with the Moon not only in your communication sector but aligned with lucky Jupiter, this is not only a chance to give your emotional responses a voice, but to move things on. Do what you can to ensure the communication lines are open, for while Mercury's return to your sign on Friday will offer even more support, due to move into opposition with Saturn in your relationship sector over the weekend this may also trigger some personal and/or relationship tension, but also a chance for a communication and/or relationship breakthrough.
On both the romantic and relationship fronts the love gods are not only calling for a slow and patient approach, but that you continue to keep your focus on the rear view mirror. Yet while the Moon's visit to your communication sector midweek, for the first time since Pluto turned retrograde in your relationship sector, is a chance to give your emotional responses, relationship, the past and unsaid words a voice, this is also a chance to start building for the future. With your relationship focus remaining on the past for the next 5 months this is a chance to start the way you want to continue. Yet while Venus is taking your heart on a nostalgic trip down love's memory lane, there will be signs over the weekend that romantic forces are starting to get impatient.
As things continue to settle on both the romantic and relationship fronts, there is a sense that you're in this for the long haul. With a better sense of what you want from your relationships and what they need from you and the love gods no longer willing to let you hide behind your excuses when it comes to romance, it now becomes all about the journey. With Venus spending her last full week in a social and serendipitous part of your chart, she's working with the laws of attraction and synchronicity to put you in the right place at the right time, with the scene set for some serendipitous moments or encounters. The Moon's return to your communication sector over the weekend, coming full circle from Easter's lunar eclipse brings a chance for a communication and/or relationship breakthrough.
With romantic and relationship forces settling in for the long haul stage of their current journey, along with a lack of urgency comes a lack of pressure and a need to avoid creating challenges where there are none. With Venus in a competitive part of your chart there is a danger of turning love into a competition or get so focused on outcomes that you forget to stay in the moment, but it doesn't have to be. Neither romantic nor relationship forces are in a race to the finish line and with both favouring a slow approach this is a chance to let things evolve naturally. Where Venus is coming in handy is giving you an ultimate sense of what you're aiming for, letting fate and the love gods manage the journey itself. When you drift into 'when, where and how' you know you're off track.
When the Sun left your relationship sector last week this brought your annual relationship review and the most active months of the year for relationship matters to an end, but this was when the real journey began. With a clear sense of what you want from your relationships and what they need from you and plenty of support from not only relationship forces but communication and friendship forces as well, the journey ahead is destined to be a special one. This is not only a turnaround from last year's relationship challenges but this is when you get to enjoy the benefits of the breakthroughs created. With both romantic and relationship forces not only in good shape but in this for the long haul, the message from the love gods this week is that it's all about the journey.
While the professional and relationship gods may have to battle for your attention this week, with some smart time management you should be able to keep them both happy. With Mars now in his final weeks in your relationship sector, Venus already been and gone and Mercury, planet of communication leaving on Friday you can't afford to put relationship matters on hold. Yet on the other hand, especially in the early days of the week, there are some ideal professional conditions that also need to be seized. It all comes down to ensuring the communication lines are open, with a double layer of support leaving you with no excuses to hide behind. What you may have to work a little harder on is a balance between work and play, working to keep the spirit of romance alive.
Apart from the Moon's visit to your relationship sector last week Venus has been on her own since returning early in the month, giving you a chance to get a sense of what you want from your relationships before your annual relationship review begins. While Mercury's return to your relationship sector on Friday will not only see more relationship support kick in but the means to ensure the communication lines are open, this makes Venus' final days on her own even more important for the chance they provide to simply listen to your heart. This means putting the 'when, where and how' on hold and focus simply on the 'what'. Mercury's return may trigger some personal and/or relationship tension over the weekend, but with it an opportunity for a communication and/or relationship breakthrough.
With Mars now in his final few weeks in your romantic sector, Venus already been and gone and Mercury leaving on Friday there is a new sense of urgency in the air. While the Sun won't leave until the 21st May, once he's gone you're on your own. The time to throw yourself into your romantic passions and fighting spirit is now, with Mercury staying on board until Friday to give your heart a voice and to put heart and mind on the same page. Where Venus has already fuelled your romantic desires the love gods are now focused on walking the talk, knowing that once this romantic wave passes there isn't another coming until Venus returns to your sign in early 2016. Yet catch this wave now and you'll ride it for the rest of the year, making this week all about challenging your excuses.
You've reached yet another important week for romantic and relationship matters, yet with no competition either between them or from outside forces. It's as though the love gods know that professional clouds are once more looming on the horizon and the time to get in and turn this around on the relationship front and get the romantic flame burning is now. You'll not only move into the week with the Moon in your relationship sector but aligned with Jupiter for the first time since he turned direct earlier in the month. As well as evoking strong emotional responses, this will come with a sense of confidence and that the tide has turned. Meanwhile, just as Venus is spending her last full week in your romantic sector Mercury's return on Friday is a chance to give your heart a voice.
While Venus, planet of love continues to work in the background, inspired by the Moon's visit to your romantic sector over the weekend she's even more determined to make your life as love friendly as possible. Due to return to your romantic sector later next week, Venus is encouraging you to take care of the housekeeping that will make time and space in your life, before the most romantically charged months of the year kick off. In the meantime, while the Moon's visit to your relationship sector midweek might push some buttons, as the only visit while the Sun, Mercury and Mars are in your communication sector this brings the potential for a communication and/or relationship breakthrough. Beyond a need to focus on current relationship matters there'll be clues to what the future holds.
