The Moon's return to your romantic sector on Monday gets the week off to a romantically charged start and with it a chance to ride the romantic wave that is now starting to pick up. While Ceres turned direct in your romantic sector five weeks ago, this has been a slow gain in momentum since then, mainly because the love gods are in no hurry. With the most romantically charged months of the year still in front of you, the romantically charged lunar vibes at the start of the week are just a taste of things to come. Meanwhile, the Moon's return to your relationship sector on Friday might push some buttons and may even create some relationship tension over the weekend. However, Venus' return to your communication sector on Wednesday will ensure the planet of love and guardian of your relationships is on hand to give your emotional responses and relationships a voice.
There may have been some relationship tension last week as both the Moon and Venus moved into opposition with Jupiter, in retrograde motion in your communication sector. Yet a week on you begin the week with the Moon just wrapping up its monthly visit to your communication sector, having spent the weekend giving your emotional responses, relationships, the past and unsaid words a voice. With Venus leaving Taurus on Wednesday, she's using this to craft a better sense of what you want from your relationships. It is just hours after Venus' departure from Taurus that the Moon's return to your romantic sector on Wednesday will keep the communication flame burning. These romantically charged lunar vibes will quickly fill the voice that Venus might leave. Meanwhile, the Moon will return to your relationship sector in the final hours of the weekend, in preparation for a Full Moon next Monday.
This is a week of two halves, with the first two days of the week dramatically different to the final five days. You start the week with Venus, planet of love in her final days in a nostalgic part of your chart. In the final days of a 25 day nostalgic trip down love's memory lane, a sense of romantic nostalgia will only deepen. Yet all that changes on Wednesday, with Venus' return to Gemini and the start of a new romantic cycle. It is during the planet of love's first full day in Gemini that things take an even deeper romantic turn, with the Moon's return to your romantic sector on Friday. As the Moon comes full circle from a Full Moon over Easter, this time it is to find Venus on board, with the planet of love knowing exactly what to do with these romantically charged lunar vibes. Together the Moon and Venus will create the most romantically charged weekend of the year, so far.
Starting the week with the Moon in Cancer is a mixed blessing, but fortunately its departure on Monday will see the negative impact drop off and the positive implications remain. It was over the weekend that the Moon moved into opposition with Mars, Saturn and Pluto in your relationship sector, creating the potential for some relationship tensions. With Saturn having turned retrograde last week, Pluto turning retrograde on Monday but Mars continuing to push forward, this leaves you with a better sense of what you want from your relationships and what they need from you. Yet this also put the Moon at a positive aspect to Jupiter, already in retrograde motion in your romantic sector. With Venus, planet of love returning to a nostalgic part of your chart on Wednesday, there has been a boost in romantic confidence, just as the doors to the past are set to open even wider.
The week might get off to a busy start, but things take a magical turn on Wednesday. This is the day that Venus, planet of love returns to a social and serendipitous part of your chart, where she is set to work her magic over the next four weeks. This is an area of your chart that always operates through the laws of synchronicity and Venus is a planet that operates through the laws of attraction. When they come together, which they do once a year, then so too do the laws of attraction and synchronicity. With the Sun not returning until after Venus leaves, she has this magical part of your chart to herself for the next four weeks. This will increase the potential for serendipitous moments and/or encounters. The Moon's return to Leo on Monday will ensure your instincts are sharp. For listening to your heart and hunches is the key to finding yourself in the right place at the right time.
Chiron, planet of healing's departure from your relationship sector last week has made it easier to move on from the past. We all have old relationship stories and baggage, but with the planet of healing here since 2010, it has been hard to move on from that past, until now. Until she leaves your relationship sector on Saturday Juno, queen of commitment and especially commitment to your relationships is working to help you commit to the future and the journey ahead. Yet while the relationship gods are looking to the future, at least two of the three love gods on the field are looking to the past. Pluto's retrograde turn in your romantic sector on Monday comes just five days after Saturn turned retrograde here. Yet as the doors open to the past and second chances, Mars is keeping the doors to the future open as well.
On Monday, Mercury will not only complete his first full week in direct motion in your relationship sector, but move into his final three weeks. A week on from last Monday's New Moon and with the Sun having left late last week Mercury, planet of communication is now playing a more active role. With your annual relationship review over and a good sense of what you want from your relationships and what they need from you, it is now all about having the communication lines open. This might be put to the test when the Moon not only returns to Libra on Friday, but moves into opposition with Mercury over the weekend. Yet this is the test that you need, with Mercury on hand to use this as a chance to give your emotional responses and relationships a voice. This is the first time since Mercury is being challenged since his direct turn and the last before he leaves your relationship sector.
There is a whole new feel on both the romantic and relationship fronts this week. At the same time that you're adjusting to Chiron, planet of healing's departure from your romantic sector last week, you're also adjusting to the Sun's return to your relationship sector. The Sun will always return to your relationship sector at this time of year, turning the solar spotlight on your relationships. Yet as the Sun spends his first full week Venus, planet of love and guardian of your relationships is in her final days. Before leaving on Wednesday Venus is making it clear that this is all about knowing what you want from your relationships, with the Sun able to bring his reality checks after she leaves. Between them, the Sun and Venus are working to identify what you want from your relationships and what they need from you, with Venus having her turn first.
There are shifts on both the romantic and relationship fronts this week, with one chapter now moving into its final weeks and another chapter just starting. After the Sun's departure from your romantic sector last week, Mercury and Uranus are now in their final weeks. Whatever the journey to get to this point, Mercury is now on a mission to give your heart a voice and to put heart and mind on the same page. Romantic matters now reach a point where it is more about walking the talk. It is your relationships that get a new boost this week with Venus, planet of love and guardian of your relationships' return to your relationship sector on Wednesday. Early warning systems might be sounding, but they will soon prove to be a false alarm. For the first time in four years Venus returns to find Saturn is no longer in opposition, with the challenges of the past no longer there.
The Moon may have pushed some buttons on the relationship front over the weekend, but by the time it leaves on Monday, any tension will drop back. This was caused by the Moon's opposition with all three planets in Capricorn, but was also a sign that your own needs fought back. This is simply a need for balance between your personal and relationship needs being policed. You might not even notice this, for with the Sun in his first full week in your romantic sector and Venus, planet of love leaving on Wednesday, there is a whole lot of romance in the air this week. Until she leaves it is all about Venus and her romantic desires and expectations. With the Sun staying on to bring a more objective approach, this is about knowing what you want before you can look at turning desires into reality.
The Moon might start things off this week, but it definitely doesn't steal the show. The Moon is actually pretty crafty, with its return to your relationship sector on Monday managing to squeeze in one last visit before things take a dramatically romantic turn. In fact, it is in the Moon's final hours in your relationship sector that Venus will return to your romantic sector. Until then the Moon's emotional responses give you a chance to give your relationships some last minute attention, before it all shifts to matters of the heart. Venus' return to your romantic sector on Wednesday not only kicks off her romantically charged four week visit, but the most romantically charged months of 2018. It has been a long time coming, but the romantic drought is finally coming to an end. The Moon only left over the weekend, with the romantically charged lunar vibes late last week a taste of things to come.
The Moon might leave your romantic sector on Monday, but starting the week with romantically charged lunar vibes in play is a bell that can't be unrung. Especially as this is the tailwind of a visit that dominated the weekend. With no planetary activity in your romantic sector since last September, there is usually a sense of urgency in the Moon's final hours, with the Moon leaving you wanting more. This time the Moon leaves you with a mix of romantic confidence and anticipation, something that shouldn't be here at this time of year. The Sun doesn't return to your romantic sector until late June, so there should be nothing on your radar. Yet on Wednesday Venus, planet of love will begin a 25 day mission to make your life as love friendly as possible, ahead of her return to your romantic sector next month. All of a sudden there are new romantic developments on your radar.
