There's an interesting mix of energy in the sky when it comes to romance. On one hand, you might feel very lovey and light this week when it comes to your sweetie. A gorgeous trine between the Sun and Jupiter on Thursday, followed by a trine between the Sun and Neptune on Sunday, suggests benevolence, kindness, and truly seeing the very best qualities in your mate and in your relationship overall. What's not fitting, however, is a rather unkind conversation you and your love might have on Thursday when Mercury, now in dramatic Leo, opposes Mars, which is currently traveling retrograde. It's possible that you will need to speak your piece about things not moving the way you want them to in your current love life situation. Alternately, you might have a discussion about your sex life that isn't the easiest to have. Push through. This will allow you both to get back to focusing on love and light.
The emotional depth that is possible between you and your lover this week is mystical, sentimental, and oh so sweet. There will be an emphasis on watery energy this week, which will have you and everyone else capable of feeling all the feels. Happily, they will be directed in the right way. You and your love are likely to enjoy a true soul connection -- don't be surprised if you look into each other's eyes and feel like you've absolutely come home. If you're completely single, try not to push too hard if there is someone in your environment you're now talking to. Allow things to flow naturally. If it's meant to be, it'll be.
Relationship bliss is yours for the taking, Taurus! Conversations with your partner this week center on the deep and truly beautiful emotional security you feel with one another. Thanks to Jupiter touring your commitment sector, you have done a great deal of shadow work this year when it comes to intimacy and partnerships. If you've confronted those depths, you are sure to feel the rewards of romantic expansion and happiness now. If you're not feeling it, then guess what? You get a second chance now. Go deep, sweet Bull. The grass is going to taste so sweet once you do.
Honest conversations with your lover might be uncomfortable this week but they are absolutely necessary. There needs to be a discussion about your spiritual perspective and any disagreements you might have concerning morals or beliefs. Another possibility is that you are dating someone who you now realize might not be on your level intellectually. If this is happening, the disappointment you feel may come crashing down on you and it's likely to take away from the attraction you feel for this person. Talk about it -- stat! And if you realize it's not working, it might be time to walk away.
You and your partner have all the makings of a beautifully romantic week ahead. The only trouble you might need to get past has to do with a serious disagreement about finances. There could be a situation concerning joint financial debt between you and your partner that is negating what may otherwise be a solid connection. One possibility is that you discover your mate has been spending money recklessly lately and because of this, you both have to pay the price and do some serious belt-tightening in order to address the debt incurred. Yes, that would cut into romance. Hash it out and try to move on. The love is still there.
Love planet Venus is in your sign for one more week, so don't waste it! If you're single, there is plenty of attention coming your way from others. In fact, you are at your magnetic best with Venus in Leo, not needing to do much work at all when it comes to romantic prospects. Even so, Mercury will oppose Mars on Thursday. Since Mars is moving retrograde in your partnership sector, it seems like you will look and feel great but not have much luck getting your partner or a potential mate to do what you want. Hmmm ... what's a Leo to do?
One of your friends might comment this week about your relationship and just how blessed he or she feels that you are. You'll enjoy hearing your pal's perspective about your love life, because he or she will truly have nothing but positive things to say. In fact, your friend might remark that he or she feels you have finally found your true soulmate. As far as you and your lover go, you'll tend to agree. Single? Make peace with it for now. Your time will come. In the meantime, you are clearly surrounded by amazing friends. Be grateful for them.
Oh, Libra, your love life might feel like a complete dud. Mars, the ruler of your partnership sector, turned retrograde last week in your 5th House of Romance and Pleasure. Something is off and there doesn't seem to be much you can do to make it right. Frustration when it comes to getting your physical and relational needs met is likely, and you've only just begun to put your finger on what has been wrong in your love life scenario. Maybe you're going after the wrong person, maybe you have unrealistic expectations with the right person, or maybe you've just hit a lull. The bright side? At least you and your lover will talk about it.
If you're single, this might be a week you meet someone who instantly speaks to your soul. You're usually quite guarded and even controlling when it comes to how much you reveal to others about yourself. Typically, you have this way of finding out any and everything about the person you're interested in without allowing this person to penetrate you in any real way -- at least at first. This is because you need time to trust and open up to someone. This person, however, will have a way of cutting straight through your defenses and right into your heart. Don't be afraid.
It might be difficult for you to get any real satisfaction in your dating and sex life if you're not in a committed relationship. Now that Mars, the ruler of your romance sector, is retrograde, you might be ready to become a hermit for the next couple of months. While it's true that any brand-new dating or sexual relationship might not be as satisfying as it could be, that doesn't render you completely hopeless. What about taking things slowly? If there is someone on your radar who makes your heart beat faster, recognize that Mars is slowing down the progress for a reason. Good things come to those who wait.
With the Sun moving through your partnership sector, you are absolutely shining a light on relationship matters now. The Sun will make happy links to both Jupiter and Neptune this week, which can only help fortify an existing love connection. You and your mate could spend time discussing a shared dream that you both have and how to make it come alive. This can be anything from a vacation you've wanted to take together to a business goal. Whatever the details, you'll have all the faith you need in each other to know that you'll eventually get there.
If you're feeling flat in the love department, cut yourself some slack. Mars, the planet of motivation and libido, went retrograde in your sign last week. This week, as you adjust to Mars being in hibernation mode, you might feel dejected when it comes to the current state of your love life. Instead of resigning yourself to misery, make peace with the fact that this is a cycle that requires you to stop pushing and to start reflecting on why this stalemate has happened in the first place. This will allow you to actually change things. There IS a reason. Find it, Aquarius.
The Sun is shining a light in your 5th House of Romance and Pleasure, which bodes quite well for you in terms of love potential. If you're single, this might be a week when you feel extra optimistic and idealistic about someone special. You might even put this person up on a pedestal and refuse to see anything but his or her absolute divine qualities. The good news is there is no reason to suspect that this person is anything else but a dream come true, so go ahead and fall in love. The universe will catch you.
