With the Sun and Venus both leaving your relationship sector on Friday this was always going to be an important week for relationship matters, but considering the journey you've been through this year it seems that it's all coming together in the end and also that you have all the bases covered. With Mercury in retrograde motion until the end of the weekend, the Sun and Venus aligning on Wednesday and then staying aligned until they leave on Friday, everything is coming together. With Venus focused on your needs and the Sun on the reality checks needed to keep it real, in the final days of your annual relationship review you're getting a clear sense of what you want from your relationships and what they need from you. This is a chance to give the past and unsaid words a voice.
You have a week that begins very differently to how it ends, with a need to stay in the moment as much as possible. It's the Moon's position in your romantic sector as you move into the new week that puts the focus on matters of the heart and the spirit of romance, especially as this is the first visit since Venus left. Yet while the Moon will make the first 48 hours of the week romantically focused that ends when the Moon moves on. While the underlying focus is and has been for over 2 years now on your relationships, that changes dramatically on Friday when, within the space of just a few hours first the Sun returns, then Venus and finally the Moon, creating a solar eclipse that ushers in the beginning of the end of a massive push to put your relationships on the right course.
There is a sense of urgency on both the romantic and relationship fronts this week that is both false and too close to call in terms of which you should favour. With the Sun and Venus both leaving your romantic sector on Friday and Mercury's final days in retrograde motion holding the doors open to the past and second chances, this should and is an important week for making matters of the heart a priority. Yet with Mars leaving your relationship sector on Sunday and as the only planet on the case presumably then leaving you on your own, this makes it important to tap into his passions and fighting spirit, fighting complacency and for your relationship needs. Yet on both fronts the love gods have backup, with this week more about getting everything out in the open and the journeys begun.
By the end of the week there will be some exciting and game changing developments underway on both the romantic and relationship fronts, changes that will influence the remainder of the year and beyond. Key to preparing for this is the Moon's position in your communication sector as you move into the week and the chance this brings to give your emotional responses a voice. As the Moon's first visit since Venus left, this brings you back to the intentions made over recent months and with Mars returning to your relationship sector over the weekend, this is more important than you realise. Yet it's not just your relationships getting a boost, with the Sun and Venus not only returning to your romantic sector on Friday, but a solar eclipse on the same day drawing a major new line in the sand.
Key to making the most of Mars' final days in your romantic sector is buying into the right level of urgency so that you don't put off tapping into the romantic passions and fighting spirit he's evoking, but not so much that you feel that it's now or never. With the Moon returning to your romantic sector just hours before Mars leaves on Sunday and then Ceres, goddess of the solar system returning just hours before the Moon leaves early next week, the love gods are working as a team to ensure that between now and mid 2015 there isn't a moment that the spirit of romance is allowed to grow cold. Mars is simply here to get the ball rolling, waking you up to what will eventually become the most important romantic journey you've been on in decades, one that will run through to late 2017.
Don't worry too much if old alarms are going off in the early days of the week, with the Moon's first visit to your sign since your annual relationship review ran its course late last month likely to push some buttons. This is not a sign that things have become unstuck or they've gone wrong, with the Moon simply performing the monthly checkups you'll always go through. As the Moon's first opposition with relationship forces since Venus left your relationship sector late last month, this is a chance to test your resolve on the relationship desires, intentions and the expectations she left you with. This is also a chance to take care of any housekeeping, with Mars' return to your romantic sector over the weekend kicking off your most romantically charged weeks since late 2012.
Due to leave your sign on Friday, just hours behind the Sun and on the same day your birthday month comes to an end Venus is having a huge say in what you want and need from the coming year. Venus returns to your sign once a year to update your romantic and relationship desires and expectations for the coming year and working so closely with the Sun and aligned in their final days, this puts the solar spotlight on your heart and your deepest desires. The Sun and Venus will be aligned with the Moon, moving through your sign moves into opposition with relationship forces on Thursday. While this trigger some personal and/or relationship tension, coming in Venus' last full day in your sign this will bring a better sense of what you want from your relationships and what they need from you.
You've reached a week where how things start will be different to how they end, with a need to stay in the moment as much as possible, embracing the romantic nostalgia that will remain rampant in the early part of the week and then embracing the new beginnings that become possible from Friday. As you move into the new week you're not only in the final days of your old solar year and of an old Venus cycle, with both the Sun and Venus moving through a nostalgic part of your chart, but with both planets in your romantic sector in retrograde motion as well. It's the past that has your heart spellbound for the first 4 days of the week. Everything changes on Friday when the Sun and Venus return to your sign and a solar eclipse will set your new solar year and new Venus cycle off with a bang.
Venus, planet of love is bringing a week of two halves, with how the week begins very different to how it ends. In her final days in a social and serendipitous part of your chart Venus will be urging you to make yourself available, making the most of the fact that you have the laws of attraction and synchronicity in effect. Until Venus leaves on Friday she'll be working to put you in the right place at the right time, with some serendipitous moments or encounters possible. It's from Friday that the love gods will shift their focus to the past, in what is likely to be an all encompassing way. With Uranus already in retrograde motion in your romantic sector, when Venus returns to a nostalgic part of your chart this is when a nostalgic trip down love's memory lane really gets serious.
While there may be little time for matters of the heart in the early part of the week, this is one week where you not only can put things off until the weekend, but you're better off if you do. There is a chance to gain some real professional momentum and a read on any career matters that need your attention. The love gods are more than happy to accept a rain check, knowing that they'll have a chance to make up for lost time over the weekend. For it's on Friday that not only Venus but the Sun and Moon will all return to a social and serendipitous part of your chart, with a solar eclipse just hours after they arrive electrifying the laws of attraction and synchronicity that will suddenly come into play. From Friday and over the weekend expect some serendipitous moments or encounters.
The Moon's first visit to your relationship sector over the weekend allows you to move into the new week with a reminder of what you want from your relationships and what they need from you, but also that this is still where the love gods are firmly focused. This comes as both the Sun and Venus move into their final days in an adventurous part of your chart, where they're reminding you that it's all about the journey. It was the Moon's visit to your romantic sector last week that also gave matters of the heart and the spirit of romance a voice, but with the focus having shifted to your relationships over the weekend, where there is ongoing influence, that voice may have been lost. While your relationships are an unfolding story, keeping the spirit of romance alive is all up to you.
While the Moon's position in the early days of the week may appear to be a mixed blessing, even if it does push some buttons and create some personal and/or relationship tension, it's a win/win situation. This is the Moon's first visit to your relationship sector since Venus left your relationship sector, with a chance to tap back into the clear sense of what you want from your relationships and what they need from you she left you with. With your annual relationship review having only run its course last month, as the Moon returns this will bring the wakeup calls needed to ensure you haven't dropped the ball. It's these monthly visits that have become the only voice your relationships have and there's a need to pay attention, without creating challenges where there are none.
