Love Horoscope for the Week of March 26

First off, let’s make one thing clear: Mercury is still retrograde and will stay that way until April 15th. The reason I’m emphasizing this point this week is that Mercury in Aries is not a big fan of patiently choosing its words or doing careful proofreading in the first place. Don’t just rely on your spell checker. Why? Because yew can sea awl the words eye rote hear Ahr spelt wright, butt yule no their offal wen yew reed them.

Part of the reason for ill-advised or poorly thought-out communications may be that you are feeling unsatisfied with the love and affection that you are receiving, even if your situation isn’t actually that bad. This sort of thing can happen when Venus is conjunct Uranus, which is exact on Wednesday but fills the entire week with strange and unusual attractions, whether they are appropriate or not. This can be a great time to liven up your love life or shake up your diet, or possibly end up in bed with the wrong person for the wrong reason. Or is that the right person for the wrong reason? Maybe it’s the wrong person for the right reason after all. In any case, Venus conjunct Uranus is one of those times when people tend to use “the heart wants what the heart wants” as an excuse a lot.

Sometimes those newly launched but poorly thought-out attractions can be a way to just shore up your ego when it’s feeling a little bruised, and Sun square Saturn is providing the conditions for a lot of that. Again, be careful how you fulfill your appetites.

Don’t worry though: none of this means that the weekend dating scene is doomed to either failure or merely temporary victories. Venus enters Taurus on Saturday and stays there until April 24th. Since Venus rules Taurus, this can be considered an excellent time for romance and affection in general. Venus in Taurus is both loving and fairly stable. Venus in Taurus also loves parking itself next to the buffet table and not moving all day long, so if you’re watching what you eat, watch it especially carefully in the next month or so.

Saturday also brings us a Full Moon in Libra. Libra has a strong association with relationships in general, and a Full Moon has strong association with moods and attitudes going completely off the rails. How this will translate into practical terms in your case is up to you and your personal situation, but in general I would warn you not to propose to any strangers, no matter how beautiful they may seem. Remember what I told you what Mercury retrograde? Yeah… maybe you’re just not thinking things through.
