There are plenty of opportunities for love, sex, and romance this week, with both Venus and Mars providing ample opportunity to kick it up a notch. Venus and Mars are the usual suspects in such matters, but let’s take a moment to thank the important supporting role being played by Saturn and Uranus.
Saturn trine Uranus is in full effect this week, and that will provide us with the opportunity to reshape our lives in both creative and practical ways that can have a lasting impact. But what makes this week particularly significant for potential romance is that both Venus and Mars will be interacting with Saturn and Uranus.
Mars enters Aquarius on Monday. Although in theory Capricorn was the best place for Mars to be, that kind of energy can be a little stiff and unyielding for many people’s tastes. Mars in Aquarius, on the other hand, tends to be a lot more fun and flexible. This is the kind of placement that is excellent for throwing a party or attending one.
Amplifying that Mars energy is Mars square Uranus, which has been in effect for a few weeks now, but he’s approaching the exact degree again. This aspect is a little rambunctious and unpredictable, but don’t forget that Mars will be in the sign that is actually ruled by Uranus… and when a planet receives an aspect from the planet ruling the sign it is in, the planet receiving the aspect gets a little extra gas in its tank. Sex drives will be turned up, but be cautious: the square aspect with Uranus tends to make things a little hard to control. Be careful how you use this newfound energy, and try to make wise choices about who you use that energy with.
Venus in Scorpio is already a pretty sexy placement, and right in the middle of the week on Wednesday Venus will be opposite Uranus and sextile Saturn. Venus opposite Uranus is a potentially wild and lively time as far as your attractions go, bringing up new opportunities and giving us a chance to pump some new life into a relationship that may have become routine. Venus sextile Saturn, on the other hand, is unusually practical and stable. When you combine these two influences, there is enormous potential to get something going with someone special.
Now if that wasn’t enough to get you out and socializing this weekend, maybe Mercury will make the difference for you. This weekend Mercury sextile Jupiter will make for big thoughts and big plans, and Mercury trine Pluto will give your words and communications a little added punch. If you are looking to talk someone into a date… or if you’d like someone to talk you into something sexy… get out there and make it happen!
