The Sun's last full week in your relationship sector should be the end of the story. With Venus and Mercury having been and gone, this week should be your last chance to focus on your relationships for the year. While the solar spotlight is on your relationships it is important to pay attention, but the journey will continue long after the Sun leaves next week. That is because Venus, the planet of love is already in retrograde motion and on her way back for a rare double dip visit. This means that the best is still to come. This also makes the Sun's last full week more about taking care of any relationship housekeeping. With Juno, queen of commitment and especially commitment to your relationships in her last full week in your communication sector, this is also a chance to ensure the communication lines are open.
It is all happening on the relationship front this week but in a varied and diverse way. Jupiter, now in his final four weeks in your relationship sector is both looking at the big picture and the journey ahead. In the meantime, Mercury, the planet of communication, in his first full week is focused on ensuring the communication lines are open. Then you have Venus, with the planet of love in retrograde motion as she takes your heart on a nostalgic trip down memory lane. It is Venus and Mercury's alignment that will not only bring heart and mind together but the past, present and future. With the Sun not returning until next week, the one thing missing is a need to keep things real. The relationship housekeeping can begin when the solar spotlight turns onto your relationships next week.
The Moon might leave your relationship sector in the early hours of the week, but here for the majority of the week, this gives you plenty of emotional and intuitive responses to process. The Moon returns every four weeks, fuelling your emotional and intuitive responses and sometimes pushing some buttons. As the Moon's only visit while Juno is making a short 24 day visit to Gemini, this may have pushed some buttons over the weekend. Yet any relationship tension this may have created doesn't so much come with a silver lining, but a golden lining. For as the Moon's first visit before Jupiter kicks off your most important relationship year in over a decade, this is a valuable reminder of a need for balance between your personal and relationship needs. Juno is the queen of commitment and especially commitment to your relationships, but in her last full week in Gemini, she is able to see both sides of the fence.
An important week on both the romantic and relationship fronts brings home the importance of having the right work/life balance. Especially with your professional year set to become a lot busier from next month and romantic and relationship matters remaining just as important. It is the Moon that will put the focus on your relationships in the early part of the week, as it makes its first visit to your relationship sector since Pluto's direct turn. As well as fuelling your emotional responses, this is a chance to tap into any areas where you want to change things up. In the meantime with Venus, the planet of love in retrograde motion in your romantic sector and lucky Jupiter in his final weeks, the love gods are making sure no stone is left unturned. You even have Mercury, the planet of communication in his first full week here, giving your heart a voice and putting heart and mind on the same page.
Starting the week with the Moon in your romantic sector is always an advantage. Even though this is literally during just the very early hours of the week, with the Moon leaving on Monday and the week dominated by relationship forces, the message from these romantically charged lunar vibes will keep you going all week. This is the Moon's last visit before Mercury returns to your romantic sector later in the month, with lucky Jupiter returning just days later. More than anything else, this is a taste of things to come. In the meantime, the Moon will team up with Mars in your relationship sector midweek, with potentially game changing consequences. This is all because of timing. Mars is ready to push relationship matters forward, at a time when support for friendship and relationship building is high. With the Sun in his last full week in your communication sector, he's on hand to give any strong emotional responses triggered a voice.
The Moon makes this a stunning week for both romantic and relationship matters, bringing important information and insight on both fronts. It begins with the Moon's return to your romantic sector on Monday, with romantically charged lunar vibes at the start of the week likely to fuel your romantic confidence and a sense of rebellion. This is the Moon's first visit since Pluto turned direct here two weeks earlier, giving matters of the heart the push start they need. In the meantime, the Moon's return to your relationship sector over the weekend is the last before Mars returns to spice and shake things up. At the moment Neptune and Chiron, the planets of dreams and healing are in retrograde motion, where they are receiving support from Venus, in retrograde motion in your communication sector. With Mercury, the planet of communication on board as well, whatever strong emotional responses the Moon fuels will easily find their voice.
Starting the week with the Moon in your communication sector is more of an advantage than meets the eye. On face value, with Eris not only in retrograde motion in your relationship sector but under pressure from the Sun this week, this is a valuable chance to ensure the communication lines are open from the get go. With no planets in your communication sector and Mercury, the planet of communication having left Libra last week, this is an opportunity that can't be missed. Yet as the Moon's last visit to your communication sector before Mercury and Jupiter return and also before Uranus retrogrades back into your relationship sector, the Moon leaves with the promise of more support on the way. In the meantime, as Mars moves into his final month in your romantic sector he is joined by the Moon midweek. These romantically charged lunar vibes will add fuel to Mars' romantic passions and fighting spirit.
There is good news on the romantic and relationship fronts this week and a lot of this comes from the Moon. With Uranus not only in his last full week on his own in your relationship sector, but moving into his final three weeks here on Wednesday, the Moon's return to your communication sector on Monday is a godsend. As the number of planets in Scorpio increases, this puts more pressure on Uranus and your relationships. Yet with the Moon returning to your communication sector on Monday and Mercury, the planet of communication in his first full week in Scorpio, they're on hand to turn this into an opportunity for a breakthrough. At the very least, this is a chance to give your relationships, the past and unsaid words a voice. In the meantime, the Moon is not just bringing a romantically charged weekend, but a taste of things to come.
As she spends her last full week in your relationship sector before retrograding out next week, Juno has a dream team of support around her. Just having the Sun in your friendship sector and at a friendly aspect, is creating the ideal conditions for friendship and relationship building. Having Mars in your communication sector is an added bonus, with the Moon's return midweek adding to the potential for a communication breakthrough. Juno, queen of commitment and especially commitment to your relationships is in retrograde motion, with the Moon making its only visit to your communication sector while she is here. With Mars already pushing through communication barriers, this brings a chance to give your emotional responses, relationships, the past and unsaid words a voice. Once Juno leaves next week there will be no more relationship focus, with the focus then shifting more to matters of the heart and all things romantic.
Uranus, the planet of surprise, synchronicity and the unexpected is not only moving into his final three weeks in your romantic sector on Wednesday, but is spending his last full week on his own. Juno, queen of commitment will not only return next week but will stay on until February, keeping the seat warm until Uranus returns. On one hand, this takes away any fear of matters of the heart going off the boil, but on the other hand this is a different energy. As the queen of commitment Juno is all about taking responsibility, committing to following your heart and to make matters of the heart a priority. On the other hand, Uranus works through the laws of synchronicity, which is all about letting fate take the wheel. In his last full week on his own, that is exactly what Uranus will be encouraging this week.
Since May 2017 the North Node has been in your relationship sector and the South Node in Aquarius, working to maintain a balance between your personal and relationship needs. Since then, every two weeks the Moon has returned to either your relationship sector or Aquarius, each time opposing the other lunar node and putting a balance between your personal and relationship needs to the test. With the lunar nodes moving into their final three weeks on Wednesday and the Moon returning to Aquarius on the same day, this begins the penultimate test. This time, with the Moon not only in Aquarius but Mars as well, the focus is more on your own needs. In two weeks' time, a week before the lunar nodes leave, the focus will be more on your relationship needs. If this does see relationship tensions rise midweek pay attention, appreciating any balance issues this might expose, at a time when you can still do something about it.
The Moon is playing an important role on the romantic front this week, except you would never know it or even appreciate it unless you look back in hindsight. Yet the love gods know the significance of what is happening this week and why you need to pay attention. The week begins with the Moon just wrapping up its monthly visit to your career sector, a visit that may have highlighted any work/life balance issues over the weekend. The Moon will then move on to create some work tension and job pressure midweek. What could this possibly have to do with matters of the heart you might ask? In both instances, the Moon is highlighting a need for work/life balance and to work smarter and the timing couldn't be better. For on Wednesday, the same day work tension and job pressure might rise, you are just three weeks away from stunning new romantic developments, that once unleashed are in play until 2020.
