In many ways, 2017 will be a banner year for love. Much of it has to do with Jupiter, the planet of expansion and blessings. Back in September 2016, he moved into the partnership-oriented sign of Libra for the first time in nearly 12 years. As a result, until October 10, 2017, love and marriage will be especially lucky for so many! The capacity to relate expands, as well as overall faith in partnership. You can't go wrong pairing up with someone under this influence!

Two supportive eclipses will also shine a light on romance: on February 10 a Lunar Eclipse, and on August 21 a Solar Eclipse -- both in open-hearted Leo. This will be a year to truly say "yes" to giving and receiving love.
There are lessons to be learned
Of course, no year is without challenges. In 2017, despite the amazing support for relationship, there will be a lesson in store. From March 4 - April 15, Venus, the planet ruling love and marriage, will retrograde. She'll backpedal mainly in the independent sign of Aries, although from April 2-15 she will revisit Pisces. As a result of this retrograde, there will be clear revisions necessary connected to loving someone else, without forgetting the importance of loving and honoring your individual needs. During the latter part of the retrograde in Pisces, the emphasis will be on gaining clarity between loving someone unconditionally without being a doormat as a result.
