Venus and Mars both change signs this week, which means that there will be a significant change in the tone of love lives for many. Whether you crave excitement or stability, this week has something for you.
On Tuesday, the Moon goes Void of Course early in the day, then enters Pisces. Also, it’s Election Day in the United States. Regardless of the outcome, I boldly predict four years of whining and complaining from a significant percentage of your Facebook friends. Besides, Mars enters Aquarius late Tuesday/early Wednesday, so it’s a good time to plot a revolution or an impeachment. Or, if you insist on being the enlightened type, you could start figuring out how you can all get along with each other after the nonstop national screaming fit that’s been going on the last few months.
Of course, you’re here for romance, not politics, and rest assured — Mars in Aquarius can do wonders for you that way, too. Mars in Capricorn was certainly a strong placement, bur didn’t have the flexibility or love of improvisation that Aquarius does. That sort of approach can do great things for your interactions with others, both inside and outside of the bedroom. Keep this in mind at the end of the month and early December when Mars will be sextile Uranus, and things get freaky.
Friday evening, Venus enters Capricorn. This is actually a sexier combination than you might think. Capricorn may have a reputation for being buttoned-down, but there’s something really sexy about applying the Capricorn sense of ambition to the Love Drive. Venus will be in Capricorn until early December, so make the long-term investment in your own sex appeal and you might get a great payoff before Christmas.
The weekend presents some interesting opportunities to improve your love life. The Moon will be in Taurus for Saturday evening and Sunday, which is a natural for fine food and wine and setting up a sensual experience. However, if you’re not in the mood for slow and steady lovin’, you can focus on Mercury in Sagittarius, which starts on Saturday. Sure, Mercury in Sagittarius is technically a “debilitated” placement, and may not be the best for detailed calculations. But when it comes to spinning a tale; portraying a little goofy charm; or just working up the nerve to start a conversation with an attractive stranger, Mercury in Sagittarius is exactly what you need on your side.
