You have one last week to fully commit to the spirit of romance, in a way that defines your priorities moving forward, what you expect from love and what you're willing to invest in return. As Venus spends her last full week in your romantic sector and especially with the Sun's departure over the weekend ending a need for reality checks this is when your heart is able to go to town. While lucky Jupiter will remain in your romantic sector until August 2015 it's while Venus, planet of love is here that the foundations are being laid. While Venus won't leave until later next week, with the focus shifting back to your relationships from early next week, matters of the heart aren't always going to get your full attention. Even later this week your relationship needs will start to surface.
At a time when you already have a powerful confluence of forces in play in your relationship sector, an alignment between Mars and Saturn in the early days of the week takes this to a whole new level. The last time Mars' passions and fighting spirit aligned with Saturn's power to move mountains if you have to, in your relationship sector, was in 1984 and with a much clearer sense of what you want from your relationships and what they need from you and of what you're fighting for, this could be game changing. Saturn is making it impossible to settle for less and Mars is giving you the courage to take some bold leaps of faith and as they come together, settling for the status quo is no longer sustainable. Tuesday's New Moon will ensure this isn't at the expense of the spirit of romance.
With Mars now less than 3 weeks away from your relationship sector as you move into the new week and just 2 weeks away by the end of the week and considering how game changing this is destined to be, all the focus this week is on ensuring the communication lines are open. While you still have Venus, planet of love in your communication sector, working to give your heart a voice and to put heart and mind on the same page, she'll leave 8 days before one of your most powerful relationship chapters in decades has its early steps. You'll not only move into the new week with the Moon in your communication sector, but having aligned with Venus over the weekend in the best possible position to do whatever it takes, for as long as it takes, to ensure the communication lines are open.
At the same time that conditions improve for your relationships, mainly because of the support from communication forces, at the same time that pressure has dropped away, there is something special and powerful developing on the romantic front this week and you won't have to wait too long to see what that is. It's on Monday that a 2 day alignment between Mars and Saturn, the first in your romantic sector since 1984 comes together, with Mars' romantic passions and fighting spirit fusing with Saturn's force, determination and the power he gives you to move mountains if you have to. Due to leave your romantic sector on the 14th September and empowered in a way that he hasn't been in decades Mars is turning you into a romantic warrior, no longer willing to let old barriers stand in your way.
When the Sun left your sign over the weekend and brought your birthday month to an end, this freed Venus up to focus more on matters of the heart. Until now she's been working with the Sun to help define your general desires and expectations for the coming year, but with your birthday month over, she can go back to focusing on what she's really here to focus on, which is defining your romantic and relationship desires and expectations for the coming year. As this is not only your most powerful solar year in over a decade but a year where you're taking your power back, Venus' job is to balance this with your romantic and relationship needs. With Mars returning to your romantic sector next month, it's matters of the heart and your romantic desires and expectations that are the more urgent.
While last week saw personal and/or relationship tensions come to a head and the Sun's return to your sign over the weekend means you can expect more this week as well, this is both a blessing in disguise and comes with some powerful and game changing support. The Sun, Mercury and Venus' return to your sign each year will always put pressure on your relationships, not just because you're a lot more aware of your personal needs, but the physical pressure an opposition with Neptune and Chiron in your relationship sector creates. Yet this comes just as a powerful alignment between communication forces, the most powerful in 30 years, creates the potential for a communication breakthrough. This is especially so in the early days of the week, with some healing possible.
As she spends her last full week in a social and serendipitous part of your chart Venus is able to really get down to working some of her magic, now that the more serious side of things is out of the way. It was the Sun's departure over the weekend, which took the focus off personal and professional networking in general that is allowing Venus to focus more on her own agenda. While Venus won't leave until later next week, it was an alignment with the Moon over the weekend and with lunar vibes still in play in the early hours of the week, that is making those days especially auspicious. Venus will continue to trigger the laws of attraction and synchronicity until she leaves, with the potential for serendipitous moments, encounters or finding yourself in the right place at the right time.
While there are likely to be some wakeup calls or even challenges on the romantic front this week this is more a case of the love gods challenging your excuses and making sure that you're not asleep at the wheel. There is an all out effort to ensure that you not only have a balance between work and play now that a game changing professional year is underway, but that you have the best of both worlds. This isn't about compromising your professional goals for your personal needs or sacrificing your love life for the pursuit of success and instead about finding a way to do both. The challenge from the stars this week is a campaign against over thinking, reminding you that it's about seizing moments, making the most of the time you have when it presents. Spontaneous moments can't be scheduled.
There is something very magical in the air in the early days of the week with Venus and Uranus, the planets of love and synchronicity, getting together to bring the spirit of romance and adventure together. Venus is a planet that works through the laws of attraction while Uranus works through the laws of synchronicity, so when they come together this sets the scene for some serendipitous moments or encounters, where following your heart and your hunches could see anything happen. With Venus on a mission to bring more adventure to your love life and Uranus, in retrograde motion in your romantic sector, holding the door open to second chances, anything is possible as they come together and decide to work as a team. From the get go be ready for the love gods to surprise you.
When the Moon left your relationship sector over the weekend this really was the end of a massive and defining relationship journey, one that has left you with a clear sense of what you want from your relationships and what they need from you. While this may have seen some personal and/or relationship tensions come to a head late last week, this was more a case of one last push to get everything out in the open. Of course, while this is the end of a journey towards defining what you want from your relationships and what they need from you, the next journey has just begun, one that will remain a work in progress. The key to keeping your relationships on track is communication, with the right mix of pressure and support to encourage a communication a cathartic breakthrough.
Having aligned with Jupiter in your relationship sector last week and the Moon over the weekend Venus, emerges into the new week with a much clearer sense of what you want from your relationships and what they need from you. When the Sun left your relationship sector over the weekend this brought your annual relationship review to an end, with Venus now more focused on cementing your desires and expectations and ensuring you get back from your relationships what you need. Things are already looking good for your relationships but they catch yet another lucky break when, in the early days of the week Venus teams up with Uranus, in retrograde motion in your communication sector. As well as bringing the laws of attraction and synchronicity together, this will give your relationships a voice.
The Sun's return to your relationship sector over the weekend has not only put the solar spotlight on your relationships, something that happens at this time every year, it has set the scene for a continuation of last week's personal and/or relationship tensions. Yet rather than a sign that something is wrong, this is the checks and balances that your relationships will always go through at this time of year and has the power to create communication and/or relationship breakthroughs and to prove healing and cathartic. Where an opposition between Mercury and Chiron, planet of healing on Monday may bring some issues to a head, a New Moon in your relationship sector on Tuesday not only creates an opportunity for a fresh start, but to give the past and unsaid words a voice.
