The massive team of support that will take you and your relationships into the future has now assembled, with the last and some might say the most important member having only just joined the team late last week. It was Mercury, planet of communication’s return to your relationship sector that completes the most stunning support team your relationships have enjoyed for over a decade, ready now to take you and your relationships into the future. Whether single, in a relationship or between relationships the spotlight is now on your relationships and while you now have the chance to build something strong, authentic and enduring, it is all about the journey and it might not always be easy, for when you expect more from your relationships more is expected of you in return. No matter what the starting point, this is the week the journey begins.
Over the last 16 months a massive line up of love gods have moved through your romantic sector, in that time showing you what’s possible, the challenges to be overcome and how best to enjoy the romantic experience, leaving you with a clear sense of what you want from love, something that will define your love life for years to come. It was just last week that the last planet left your romantic sector, but a month on from the end of your so called luckiest year for love in over a decade you’re starting to appreciate that this is far from over and for some the journey hasn’t even begun. If all the last 16 months has done is leave you with a clear sense of what you do and don’t want from love, then the love gods have done their job. What you will find now, is how easy it is to turn desires into reality, though until you dip your toes into the sea of love you’ll never know.
Having spent much of the last year with your warrior spirit engaged on the relationship front, either in a combative position or through getting to the heart of what you’re fighting for, there is a chance to simply stand back and let things settle. What you have this week is a fire break from Mars’ tumultuous and possibly stormy months in your relationship sector, his longest in two decades and the return of Venus, planet of love and guardian of your relationships early next week. When Venus returns the rebuilding will begin, as well as some of the best relationship weeks of 2016, with a chance to use the journey so far as a foundation for something special. With your luckiest year for love and romance underway and a chance this week to give your heart a voice, it’s time to lay any old relationship ghosts to rest, with something special ahead on both the romantic and relationship fronts.
As if having the planets of war and revolution together in your relationship sector for the first time in two years wasn’t enough, the Moon’s presence over the weekend will have added strong emotional responses to an already potent cocktail. At the same time that you move into the new week the Moon moves on, leaving in its wake a lot of strong emotional responses and possibly some tumultuous days that you can only now start to process. No matter what was triggered over the weekend, whether it was your passions, fighting spirit or both, this has left you with a better sense of what you want from your relationships and what they need from you. Whether single, in a relationship or between relationships you’re no longer asleep at the wheel. At the same time Venus, in her final week in your romantic sector, will be working to make this week as romantically charged as possible.
As the love gods focus more on a chance to take ownership of your romantic past and even address old confidence issues ahead of next week’s stunning romantic developments, there is a chance in the early days of the week to give your relationships some much needed attention. With the most romantically charged weeks of 2016 starting next week this brings a chance to first take care of any relationship housekeeping, but also work to make your life as love friendly as possible. The time to address any potential roadblocks and address any balance issues between work and play is now. It’s the Moon’s position in your relationship sector in the early days of the week that might stir some strong emotional responses, but whether single, in a relationship or between relationships this is a chance to get everything out in the open before next week’s romantic developments.
At the same time that the relationship pressure of the past 16 months is dropping back dramatically, something special is developing on the romantic front, but it was over the weekend that both took a dramatic turn for the better. This allows you to move into the new week with a new sense of confidence and a sense that on both the romantic and relationship fronts a corner has been turned. While there is still likely to be a lot of healing to take place and whether single, in a relationship or between relationships the journey will continue, the pressure and tension of the past 16 months is gone, allowing the rebuilding to begin. It was over the weekend that the love gods brewed up a potent cocktail of romantic passion, emotion and rebellion, with one sip turning you into a romantic warrior, ready to fight for what you want from love.
The further into your birthday month and new solar year you move the clearer it becomes that this is no ordinary year, feeling your personal power and need for authenticity increase by the day but also the impact this is having on your relationships. As you grow and evolve and especially as you start to realise that settling for less than you know you can be is no longer an option, this is putting pressure on your relationships and especially your relationship expectations. Whether single, in a relationship or between relationships, as you evolve so too must your relationships and this is what you’re starting to feel this week. However, this is also the week that the support floods in, with the communication and relationship gods coming together to not only give you and your relationships a voice, but to begin redefining your relationship needs and priorities.
There is a whole new sense of romantic confidence in the air this week, as the dark cloud that has been hanging over your love life or simply your heart’s take on things finally moves aside. This comes just as the love gods and the planets of love and dreams in particular, have come together to offer up almost anything you could want from love. As Venus, planet of love spends her last full week in Scorpio she is showing you what’s possible moving forward, working to cement your romantic confidence, desires and expectations as she opens the doors to new romantic opportunities and the journey ahead. At the same time dreamy Neptune is not only keeping a sense of romantic nostalgia alive but is holding the doors open to the past and second chances. Yet chances are, on both fronts, you’re only now seeing what was always there.
While the love gods are definitely leaving the best to last, with the weekend due to play host to a Lovers Moon, a Full Moon in your romantic sector, there are steps along the way that should see your romantic confidence increase as the week unfolds. This is more a trail of breadcrumbs leading up to the weekend, with your heart becoming more and more engaged as the week progresses. To begin with it is a sense of romantic nostalgia and a sense of romantic confidence that you can’t quite put your finger on, but it’s an event on Thursday that sets the scene for a romantically charged weekend. Thursday’s shift is subtle, but it will see the fog clear and give you a better and deeper sense of what you want and need from love, so that by the time the weekend’s Lovers Moon rolls around you’ll be ready for whatever this triggers.
There is a sense of urgency in the air this week, but both in terms of being willing to trust your heart and listen to what it’s telling you. Until retrograding back out of your romantic sector on Thursday Ceres, dwarf planet and goddess of the solar system will continue to speak to a part of your heart that holds your deepest longings and yearnings, allowing you to get past what you think you want from love to what you really need. That takes trust, especially if your heart is telling you one thing and your head another. At the same time, in her last full week in a social and serendipitous part of your chart Venus, planet of love will be doing her best to play matchmaker, with following your heart and your hunches having the potential to put you in the right place at the right time. This is a week where serendipitous moments and/or encounters are possible.
There is a key to making Venus, planet of love’s last full week in a competitive part of your chart count and to avoid turning this into a disadvantage. This is a week for building bold and confident romantic and relationship goals and ambitions, with Venus’ aim before she leaves being to leave you with something to aim for and aspire to. What neither the love nor relationship gods want is to see your heart’s competitive edge used to turn your relationships or love into a competition or a race to the finish line. Early next week Venus will return to a social and serendipitous part of your chart, where through the laws of attraction and synchronicity she will trigger the serendipitous developments that will help take you from where you are now to where you want to be. Until then it is all about the ‘what’ rather than the ‘when, where and how’.
While there is no doubt there is a lot less relationship pressure this week, there is also a sense that this is where the real journey begins. Mercury’s departure from your relationship sector late last week brought a 16 month period of planetary activity to an end, one that may have created a lot of relationship pressure, but has also taken your relationship expectations to the highest point they have been in over a decade. However, the relationship gods don’t take you through a journey like this and just abandon you, with everything that has unfolded over the last 16 months simply the training ground. Whether single, in a relationship or between relationships you are moving into a new era, one where you know what you want from your relationships, you know what’s required in order to keep the communication lines open and what you need to invest to get back what you know is possible.
