The week begins in the shadow of Venus square Saturn, which is still in effect for the first few days this week. You may recall me mentioning that this particular aspect was going to make it pretty difficult for romance to gain any ground. Although the first part of the week is still overshadowed by this, stay tuned, dear reader. Relief is coming by the end of the week.
If your love life was unsettled in the last week or so, Monday is not particularly likely to help much. That’s when we get a Full Moon at 28 degrees Pisces. In my experience, the Full Moons in Virgo or Pisces are two of the craziest Full Moons of the year. Your mileage may vary of course, but even people who aren’t particularly into astrology know that things can go off the rails during a Full Moon.
On Wednesday, Mercury square Pluto is exact. Have something important that you’ve been holding off saying to someone? Do you feel a strong urge to express yourself over an important matter? Well, before you do that, you might want to consider putting a sock in it. Mercury square Pluto is not in any way, shape or form known for its subtle wordplay or sensitive phrasing.
Wednesday is also the day that the Sun enters Libra. I’ve been doing this job this long enough that I’ve run out of jokes about fashion accessories for this time of year, so feel free to make up your own.
The romantic outlook hasn’t been so great in the last week and a half, but towards the weekend things begin to improve. Two very big and important aspects that will affect romantic outlooks, in general, should give you much better results than we’ve seen recently. First of all, Venus opposite Uranus is exact. Whereas Venus square Saturn was downright frustrating, Venus opposite Uranus may not sound exactly stable to you — but it can be fun and exciting and lead to new adventures. That sounds a lot better to me than the chilling effect of Venus square Saturn any day.
On Saturday, Mars trine Saturn is exact. Although Venus opposite Uranus might be a little romantically rambunctious for your tastes, Saturn can be a remarkably stable time when your urges and drives are applied more thoughtfully and more successfully towards your goals and yes, that includes love and romance.
Whatever you do this week though, I hope you heeded my advice from previous forecasts and gotten all your big important agreements and communications wrapped up as best as possible. Next Monday, Mercury turns retrograde. Better get to work finishing that novel before then!
