Chances are everything has been lain on the floor after the weekend’s Full Moon in your relationship sector and while strong emotional responses are only just starting to ease back as you move into the new week, already this has been a game changer. Chances are you’ve learned more over the weekend about what you want from your relationships and what they need from you than you have in months and this is at the crux of what this is all about. Knowing what you want from your relationships and what they need from you is all about balancing your own and your relationship needs and with your annual relationship review ending over the weekend, this has been a crash course. Help will come in the form of the Moon’s return to your communication sector midweek, with a chance to give your emotional responses and relationships a voice.
Due to leave your relationship sector on Tuesday, Venus is in her final hours of getting to the heart of your romantic desires and expectations as you move into the new week and she’ll be doing anything to get your attention. Knowing that she won’t be back for another year, but also that your annual relationship review will start at the end of the week, Venus is determined to leave you with a clear sense of what you want from your relationships, even if that means pushing buttons. Sometimes the quickest way to establish what you want from your relationships is to appreciate what you don’t want, with some personal and/or relationship tensions in her final hours a way to get your attention. Yet while you will start the week focused on what you want from your relationships, you’ll end the week more focused on the reality checks needed to turn desires into reality.
Until Venus returns to your relationship sector on Tuesday, to begin spreading her magic and kicking off what could be some of the best relationship weeks of the year, it’s important to take care of any housekeeping, dealing with old relationship issues and laying old ghosts to rest. Yet from the get go it’s clear that Venus means business and having moved into the year here, she will take you back to the relationship expectations you moved into the year with and while her focus isn’t on reality checks, she will ask what you have done with those intentions and resolutions. Yet Venus is not here to scold but to help and whether single, in a relationship or between relationships, she is determined to create some of the best relationship weeks of 2016. It won’t take long to remember what you’re fighting for.
As much as the planets of war and revolution might be firing things up on the relationship front and suggesting that their push to fight for your relationships or against the things you don’t want is the most urgent game in town this week, in the early hours of the week it is the spirit of romance that needs your attention and in a very specific way. When Venus leaves your romantic sector on Monday she will wrap up the most potentially romantic weeks of 2016, yet if this wasn’t a particularly romantic time for you then you’ve missed the point. This has been less about what you have experienced and more about what this has awoken, with a need to move into the week believing in love and the spirit of romance, with a better chance to turn romantic desires into reality from next week.
While there is every reason to move into the week with confidence, there is nothing to suggest the game changing developments and the big implications this is going to have on the romantic front. Everything changes with Venus, planet of love’s return to your romantic sector on Tuesday, kicking off the most romantically charged weeks of 2016, while at the same time reigniting some of the romantic intentions and promises you moved into the year with. It’s that reigniting of old romantic flames and the lighting of new flames that allows you to learn from the past, while appreciating a lot of water has passed under the bridge since then. What you wanted from love at the start of the year isn’t necessarily what you want from love now, but in terms of your chances of turning desires into reality, your odds are now a lot higher.
While the pressure on your relationships has dropped back considerably over the last few weeks, having Venus in your communication sector has been a buffer, continuing to give your relationships a voice and to keep the communication lines open. That buffer is removed with Venus’ departure on Tuesday, but with more help on the way and tensions dropping right back, it shouldn’t take much to keep the communication lines open, but it will still take some effort on your part. Chances are there will be plenty of distractions though, with the planets of war and revolution coming together to spice things up on the romantic front. It’s their alignment midweek that is set to bring your romantic passions, fighting spirit and the spirit of rebellion together, giving you the courage to take some bold leaps of faith.
Chances are there are still some strong emotional responses to either present or past relationship matters in the aftermath of the weekend’s Full Moon in your relationship sector, but you can expect this to start dialling back from Monday. While there may be one more flare up of personal and/or relationship tensions in the lead up to the weekend, instead of the Moon’s emotional responses involved it will be Mercury, planet of communication pushing buttons. This will bring a chance to turn anything not resolved over the weekend into an opportunity for a breakthrough, especially with Venus returning to your communication sector on Tuesday. In the closing days of your birthday month and as you prepare to move into your biggest year for personal growth in over a decade, a call for personal and relationship authenticity is being put to the test.
While there might be a sense of urgency in the air at the start of the week, especially when it comes to defining your romantic and relationship desires and expectations for the coming year, this is being balanced by a growing sense of confidence on both fronts. With the Sun not returning to Scorpio to kick off your birthday month and new solar year until the weekend but Venus, planet of love leaving on Tuesday, this is giving your heart a chance to get in first. Where the Moon’s visit to your romantic sector was able to tap into both a sense of romantic nostalgia and a growing sense of confidence, in Venus’ final days in Scorpio there is a chance to take a closer look at your relationships. Don’t be surprised if this might push some buttons, for with limited time the quickest way to establish what you want from your relationships is knowing what you don’t want.
Moving into the week with the Moon in your romantic sector is always an advantage, but even more so when it is the tail end of the weekend’s Full Moon. This Lovers Moon has not only brought the spirit of romance back to life, but has unleashed a wave of romantic nostalgia and sentiment you’ll find hard to ignore and once established, is set to take on a life of its own. The reality is, that had this fallen just two weeks earlier it wouldn’t have been nearly as effective or as game changing, but with the busy professional pace of recent months having eased back, there is a void that romantic forces are able to fill and lay claim to. This has given your heart and the spirit of romance the kind of wakeup calls you can’t ignore, at a time when the doors are still open to the past and second chances, just as Venus’ return to Sagittarius on Tuesday opens the door to new beginnings.
In a week where professional forces are gathering to bring everything together on the career front and the spirit of romance looked like it was set to be squeezed right out of the equation, the spirit of romance is fighting back and isn’t holding back. That fightback begins in the early hours of the week, with the Moon’s return to your romantic sector not only bringing romantically charged lunar vibes into play, but tapping into a subtle sense of romantic nostalgia already in the air. That sense of romantic nostalgia will become a lot less subtle with Venus’ return to a nostalgic part of your chart on Tuesday. With the Moon still in your romantic sector, this will ensure that as a nostalgic trip down love’s memory lane begins there will already be a sense of romantic nostalgia and sentiment in the air.
There is something special in the air this week or at least there will be once you reach Tuesday. Yet from the get go there is a sense of adventure in the air, reminding you that as things continue to unfold on both the romantic and relationship fronts, that it is all about the journey. Things take a serendipitous turn when Venus returns to a social and serendipitous part of your chart on Tuesday, opening the doors to some of the most fateful weeks of the year, weeks where you’re likely to find yourself in the right place at the right time, with serendipitous moments and/or encounters becoming more likely. It is the Moon’s return to your romantic sector midweek that brings a more romantic twist into play, while the weekend will be an auspicious time for both friendship and relationship building. From the get go let fate take the wheel.
While for the most part you are still in recovery mode, with a chance now for healing and for letting the relationship journey continue in a less demanding way, there are still plenty of support. As you move into the new week it was just 10 days earlier that a massive push to establish what you want from your relationships and what they need from you ran its course and whether single, in a relationship or between relationships this has forever changed your expectations moving forward. Moving forward the twin beacons to follow are communication and authenticity, with compromising your own needs and truth no longer an option. However, this is a week where the best is being saved until last, with the Moon’s return to your romantic sector over the weekend not only promising a romantically charged weekend, but a chance to lighten things up.
