It is not just that the laws of attraction and synchronicity kick in with a vengeance this week, increasing the chance of serendipitous moments and/or encounters, where and when you least expect, but that it comes just as you're finding the confidence to take bold leaps of faith. Right from the get go your hunches are in tune with some serendipitous forces in play behind the scenes, whispering in your ear to turn left instead of right or to say 'yes' instead of 'no' to invitations. Yet that is of no use if you don't have the courage and confidence to trust what your heart and hunches are telling you or to take a risk. It is a combination of having the courage and serendipitous influences in play that is set to make this such a fateful week. As a bonus this also creates an ideal week for friendship and relationship building.
Moving into the week with the spirit of adventure and romance in the air makes it impossible to hide behind your excuses and no matter how busy you are, a need to find a balance between work and play from the get go. While the spirit of adventure and romance will remain strong in their own rights, it is only in the early days of the week that they are fused together, giving you easy access to both. At a point in the year where there is now less focus on relationships and more focus on matters of the heart and all things romantic, this is a chance to make up for lost time. There is an extraordinary amount of professional activity, far more than you would normally expect at this time of year, making it important to fight to keep the spirit of romance and adventure alive, doing what you can to move out of a romantic rut.
There is not only a strong sense of adventure in the air from the get go but of romance as well and it is something that you'll have a hard job ignoring. Old excuses no longer seem to work, as something is awoken that seems to be taking on a life of its own. While a wave of romantic and adventurous influences that came together over the weekend is starting to wane a little, there is another wave on the way and even more waves following that. You may as well bow to the inevitable now, that the spirit of romance is here to stay and a sense of adventure is now part of the process. Say goodbye to your romantic rut, as you move into some of the most adventurous romantic times you've seen in over a decade. While there is still a lot of focus on your relationships, even there a sense of adventure brings a reminder that it is all about the journey.
Whether single, in a relationship or between relationships you have reached an important week for relationship matters, both because more support has arrived and because the direction is about to shift. Until Venus leaves your relationship sector on Wednesday, as well as attracting something special, she is determined to leave you with a clear sense of what you want from your relationships, without being weighed down by the 'when, where and how'. It was Mercury's return over the weekend that not only brings the support needed to give your relationships a voice and ensure the communication lines are open, but is here to help you walk the talk. Weeks before your annual relationship review is set to begin and any reality checks are required, this is giving you a chance to get to the heart of what you crave and start the process of turning desires into reality.
Don't worry too much if emotions and passions are running high in the early part of the week or if this shakes things up or even gets you angry or frustrated. The week begins with the Moon and Mars aligned in your relationship sector and that can't help but push buttons and shake things up, but in the process will give you a better sense of what you're fighting for. Before you have a chance to put your defences up or put any filters on your emotional responses, they will be out in the open and impossible to ignore. Don't panic if this upsets the apple cart or brings strong responses you're not sure what to do with, for with Venus returning on Thursday the Calvary is on the way. Whether single, in a relationship or between relationships settling for less or the status quo is no longer an option.
There is something special developing on both the romantic and relationship fronts this week, while at the same time a warning that you can't afford to be flippant when it comes to a balance between work and play. To begin with, while the week is titling more towards busy work forces, this is being counter balanced by the fact that you have Venus, planet of love in your romantic sector and she won't be ignored. It is when Venus leaves on Wednesday that you will need to be more vigilant, for while there will be plenty of support to keep the romantic flame burning, there will be no one policing it. At the same time there is a chance, in the middle part of the week in particular, to get your first real sense that the tide has turned on the relationship front. While will always evoke strong emotional responses, this time they are steering you towards the future rather than the past.
Starting the week with romantically charged lunar vibes in play is always going to be a good omen, especially as there is something solid and very real behind this. With Mars moving into his final two weeks on Monday and Venus, planet of love returning on Thursday, a romantic revolution is taking hold that is set to sweep even the most resistant of excuses and barriers aside. The romantic drought broke weeks ago but if you've managed to avoid its clutches, this literally becomes harder by the day this week, to the point where you will have nowhere to hide. What is taking shape is one of the most romantically charged build ups to Christmas that you've seen since 1984. Avoid the temptation to bury yourself in work or life's other demands until this romantic tsunami passes through.
It is only now that you have turned the corner that you have your first real view of what lies ahead and for that reason your heart and a sense of romantic anticipation are likely to be doing cartwheels this week, especially midweek. It is the romantically charged lunar vibes in effect from Tuesday through to Thursday that may look and feel familiar, yet will come with a sense that something has shifted. As well as a sense that the past has finally lost its appeal there is a new sense of anticipation in the air, as your heart's antennas pick up on the new romantic developments just ahead. This gives you time to make your life as love friendly as possible, making sure you have the right work/life balance ahead of time. What lies ahead are not just some of the most romantically charged weeks of 2016, but a romantically charged Christmas and New Year.
Compared to this time last year finding a balance between work and play will be a walk in the park and while this doesn't mean your professional year will suffer, it does mean you have fewer excuses to hide behind. It is the Moon's return to your romantic sector on Thursday that will not only bring the last romantically charged lunar vibes of the year into play, but will heighten a sense of romantic nostalgia just as it starts to lose its hold on you. The romantic tide was always destined to turn in the later days of the year and the doors remain open to the past and second chances until then and while that is still the case, new doors will also start to open over the weekend. There is something special brewing on the romantic front that romantically charged lunar vibes will give you access to. Some communication breakthroughs are also possible this week.
A week that begins with Venus, planet of love in Capricorn and ends with the Moon in your romantic sector, is bookended with romantic forces that need to be seized. With Venus on a mission to define your romantic and relationship desires and expectations for a birthday month and new solar year that is still weeks away and the Moon making its last visit to your romantic sector for the year, this is something that needs to be seized. That would have been the case anyway, but even more so with your professional year continuing to go from strength to strength. If you're going to make an effort to find and maintain a balance between work and play, it has to happen now.
Until she returns to Aquarius on Wednesday Venus, planet of love is taking your heart on a nostalgic trip down love's memory lane, as is the case as one Venus cycle ends and as you prepare for another to begin. This is the second time a Venus cycle of love has come to an end this year, with Venus' return on Thursday bringing a short nine month journey to an end, while kicking off a new 13 month journey. A sense of romantic nostalgia in effect during the early part of the week brings a chance to look back over the journey the last nine months has taken you on and from that, a chance to get a sense of what you want to take with you into the future. In every sense of the word Venus' return to Aquarius on Thursday is an opportunity for a do over, which is why it's important to look back at what you could have done differently.
Until a nostalgic trip down love's memory lane begins on Thursday, as much as there will be a desire to escape into your imagination, daydreams and old memories, there will still be a need to remain plugged into the here and now. In her final days in a social and serendipitous part of your chart Venus, planet of love will be doing her best to put you in the right place at the right time. Following your heart and your hunches will have the power to put you in the right place at the right time, especially in the early part of the week. While the laws of synchronicity will remain in effect, it is only until Thursday that the love gods will be using this to their ends. You will also find that your relationships are starting to turn a corner, but it's more that your personal and relationship needs are more balanced.
