This will be a week filled with some strange feelings and the energy to do something about them. The first part of the week is dominated by Venus square Uranus, which is exact on Tuesday. This can make for some weird emotional impulses — well, at least “weird” by your usual standards. If you want to liven up your love life a little, now is the time to do it. If not, you can still use this energy to creatively break your diet. Either way, having some whipped cream on hand is recommended.
Adding to the potential impulsiveness on Tuesday is a New Moon in Sagittarius. Sagittarius already has kind of a reputation for being unruly, and recent research indicates that the New Moon can make things nearly as emotionally disorderly as the more famous Full Moon does. If nothing else, the New Moon is a good time to firmly lay out your intentions for yourself in the following month, and a little of that Venus square Uranus energy may give you the motivation to finally do something different with your love life.
The biggest aspect of the week is Mars trine Jupiter, which is exact on Thursday but has an influence over the entire week. Any Mars-Jupiter aspect is going to do wonders for the sex drive, and the trine is easier to handle and less impulsive than most aspects. That should give you some hope for your love life, but when you consider that Mars is in Aquarius (which has a fondness for “changes of pace”) and Jupiter in in Libra (which is all about the relationships)… well, you get the idea.
Mercury enters Capricorn on Friday. This means it’s time to get serious about your communications and agreements. I’m not saying “get serious” because that’s the Capricorn stereotype — I’m saying “get serious” because Mercury turns retrograde in a couple of weeks and you may regret not taking care of these things sooner.
The weekend dating scene is the perfect place to work those Venus and Mars transits for maximum effect — but wait, there’s more! Mars sextile Saturn (exact on Saturday) lends a particular potential surprise twist to this story of impulses and new attractions. Saturn isn’t particularly sexy, but in a sextile to Mars it can make your urges easier to express, more refined, and can even improve your chances of getting something off the ground that has some real long-term potential. Combined with Moon in Aquarius, all of this makes for some great circumstances to make something good and meaningful AND fun and sexy happen — and keep happening. Lucky you!
