Overall, love life conditions (and the transits in general) are pretty electric this week, as the big player in most of the proceedings is Uranus. Uranus in Taurus is a powerful influence on world events and the big picture happenings in your life, but ironically it doesn’t always get a lot of attention when you look at things one week at a time. You don’t often hear this, but technically Uranus in Taurus is a “debilitated” placement, being opposite Scorpio, the sign of its exaltation. That means that the quirky, erratic, but occasionally brilliant influence of Uranus may be more subject to subjective whims than divine inspiration. Lucky for all you romantics out there, though: Uranus in Venus-ruled Taurus can bring some real zip to your love life.
That’s especially the case this week, when both Venus and Mars makes aspects to Uranus. Venus conjunct Mars (although exact last week) is still going to be in effect for all of this week. Even under normal circumstances, a Venus-Mars conjunction will pump up the urge to socialize and seek out a mate. But when Venus trine Uranus happens? Those choices can become particularly exotic and exciting. That aspect is exact on Monday but lets its freaky light shine on throughout the week.
Meanwhile: when Mars trine Uranus is happening? The impulse for action is increased… sometimes regardless of how wise that action may turn out to be. Adventure is fun and all, but sometimes the need for it can make things get out of hand. Mars trine Uranus is exact on Wednesday, but makes the entire week exhilarating.
Whether or not your intentions are romantic, Uranus will also be lending a hand with boosting damaged self-esteem and just might make you feel a little shinier than usual this week. Sun trine Uranus is exact on Thursday. Although that’s normally a fun aspect, when it’s combined with the aforementioned Venus and Mars action, things might get a little too frisky for anyone to stay focused at work. Please try to behave, and you might just want to review those “personal conduct” materials from Human Resources you ignored during that staff meeting. Believe me, the last thing you need is a complaint on your permanent file.
And no… just because Mercury trine Uranus (exact on Sunday) will be making you and your words a little more creative and invigorating doesn’t mean you’ll be able to talk yourself out of anything. But hey, with luck… you might be able to talk someone into something at the bar this weekend.
Finally, if all of this sounds a little too risky and edgy for your tastes, fear not, because there is a potential stabilizer for all this. Venus trine Saturn is exact on Sunday, and that naturally increases the chances that any new connection you make has a better than average chance of becoming solid and long-term.
