Love Horoscope for the Week of September 11

If the old saying that “no news is good news” were always true, as far as your love life is concerned this would be a very short forecast this week. Maybe it’s just human nature, or maybe it’s just me, but I find difficult transits a lot easier to write about than the pleasant ones. Fortunately for all you True Romantics and lovers of love out there, your favorite planet (Venus) is getting some very helpful aspects this week. Whether you take advantage of all that or simply sit back and enjoy the vibe while it lasts is entirely up to you… But it should be noted that Venus in Leo is probably enjoying all this excitement.

On Tuesday, Venus trine Saturn brings a sense of stability to your affectionate endeavors. If you are avoiding romantic entanglements at this time, or are simply happy with what you’ve got, this is also a good time for you to get your finances in order.

On Thursday, Venus in Leo is conjunct the Moon’s North Node. The Nodes can be a little difficult to describe, but think of the North Node as the valve where new karmic connections gets poured into your birth chart. All else being equal, Venus conjunct North Node is one of those times where your careful planning can lead to some purely (or apparently) blind luck that works in your favor.

If you’re starting to get suspicious that all the news is completely good this week, keep in mind that Wednesday (and the day on either side of it) will be kind of a low-energy drag, because of Sun square Saturn. And if you are the type who occasionally blurts out things you shouldn’t (or enthusiastically expresses the wrong idea at the wrong time), you might want to be careful this weekend, as Mercury conjunct Mars is exact on Saturday.

The two Venus aspects this week that have the potential to lead to the most romance and excitement are both exact just in time for the weekend. On Friday, Venus sextile Jupiter lays the groundwork for a lot of happy socializing and good times, so it may be an ideal time to plan a first date. Be careful though if you’re on a budget or diet, because this aspect can encourage you to blow it.

Finally on Sunday, Venus trine Uranus is exact. This aspect will influence the entire second half of this week and the first half of next week. It brings opportunities for new excitement to your love life, a rekindling of attractions that may have fallen flat lately, and if nothing else is great for enjoying time with your friends or hobbies.
