2015 kicks off with a longing for pleasure and the promise of its delivery. Jupiter, the planet of expansion, will remain in romantic Leo until August 11, 2015. During this time it'll be easier to open your heart and invite the possibilities of love in. The pursuit of pleasure will reach dramatic proportions on March 3, 2015, and again on June 22, when Jupiter makes a perfect trine to Uranus -- the planet of sudden developments. If you're willing to take a gamble with your heart on these dates, then there's a great deal of support to ensure you'll be lucky in love. Fire signs and Air signs benefit most from this heart-pounding energy!

Jupiter moves into discerning Virgo after August 11, and on October 25 will make a conjunction to the love planet Venus. This combination makes practical romance a delicious priority. Earth signs and Water signs will benefit most from this combination.

This will help anyone stuck in an outworn partnership to break free from its chains. Then, a Lunar Eclipse in independent Aries on September 27 will leave you emotionally focused on your needs both in and out of the context of relationship.
