You may have some very sweet moments early in the year as lovable Venus occupies your sign from March 5 until April 5, but the bigger potential for relationship rewards kicks in on July 16. That's when optimistic Jupiter, Astrology's traditional planet of good fortune, ends its six-year stay in the bottom of your chart and enters your 7th House of Others. This begins what could be an extraordinary period for favorable connections.
Don't forget that for an even more detailed look at your love life in 2014, you can get a Big Picture Love Forecast for your unique birth chart.
During the following 12 months, you will have more courage, creativity and confidence to make you appealing to new people and more interesting to those who already know you. If you're in a relationship, it's time to raise your expectations and increase your efforts to share positive feelings and to have fun. Looking at love as an adventure to keep pushing and exploring will be much more rewarding than simply trying to play it safe.
Take a leap of faith
Don't be afraid to express your feelings in ways that are more emotional than reasoned as of July 16. Jupiter is in expressive Leo, where big gestures and open hearts pay dividends. Logic is, of course, a necessary part of life, but if you're too analytical or calculating about relationships, you can keep the one you're in chilly or come across as uncaring to others.
Taking risks is what's required to keep passion pumping in your life, while playing it safe could keep you on the sidelines. But if you're feeling shy, aggressive Mars' move into your sign on December 4 will help you end the year with more enthusiasm, energy and initiative.
