Knowing that things are about to take a more romantic turn Venus, the planet of love is making the most of her time in your communication sector. While not leaving until early next month, with the Sun leaving over the weekend and both being confronted by Monday's Full Moon, this is a chance to push through any communication barriers. While the Sun is more focused on communication lines across the board, Venus' focus is on giving your heart and your relationships a voice. It is on Friday that the first signs of movement on the romantic front will be detected. This is small at first, but what begins as a drip will increase to a flood tide by the time Mars, warrior planet of the cosmos returns to your romantic sector early next month. In the meantime, it is midweek that Venus joins forces with the relationship gods to give the communication lines on the relationship front a push.
The Moon's departure from your relationship sector over the weekend has left you with a better sense of what you want from your relationships and what they need from you. Even more so than is usually the case with these monthly visits, for the Moon had come full circle from last month's Full Moon, to find a lot less push back and a lot more support, especially from the communication gods. With Mercury, the planet of communication in his last full week in your communication sector and Mars declaring war on communication barriers, they are using any strong emotional responses the Moon triggered as fuel. It is not until Venus, the planet of love returns to your communication sector early next month that there will be a chance to specifically target your relationships. Yet they will still benefit from Mars and Mercury's more blanket approach to communication barriers.
Starting the week with the Moon in your relationship sector is going to be a mixed blessing, especially when you still have the Sun and Venus in Gemini and this will create a clash between the two. It is an opposition between the Sun and Moon that will create Monday's Full Moon, just a week after the Sun and Jupiter clashed. Once again this will put your personal and relationship needs into conflict but at a time when there is support for a breakthrough. While a Full Moon is a clash between the Sun and Moon, when you have Venus, the planet of love in Gemini and lucky Jupiter in your relationship sector, there is a better chance to find a balance between the two. Any relationship tension will dial back by Tuesday, but not before getting a better sense of what you want from your relationships and what they need from you. It is just days later that support from the communication gods will kick in.
Mercury, the planet of communication has his work cut out for him this week but he wouldn't want it any other way. In his last full week in Cancer, Mercury is on a mission to ensure the communication lines are open and there couldn't be a more important week to have him here. It was late last week that Mars moved into opposition with Saturn in your relationship sector and in the second half of this week will move into opposition with Pluto there. As the planets of war and revolution clash this will see your personal and relationship needs come into conflict again but this time, you are not up against unyielding Saturn. Mercury and Mars align in Cancer midweek, forming a united front and with it a chance to address any balance issues. As Mercury works to push through communication barriers, Mars is able to attack all other barriers. This is a chance to get to the heart of what you want from your relationships and what they need from you.
Starting the week with the Moon in your romantic sector is always an advantage, even more so when this is a Full Moon and anything but the ordinary Full Moon that falls here at the time every year. This is the first Full Moon here with lucky Jupiter on board in 12 years and with Venus, the planet of love on the other side of this Full Moon there is a lot of romantic energy being discharged. The Moon will move on but with lucky Jupiter not only here but in retrograde motion, this brings a timely reminder that the doors are open to the past, second chances and an opportunity for a do over. It is later in the week that the Moon will make a timely return to your relationship sector, returning just a day before Juno, queen of commitment and especially commitment to your relationships returns to Leo on Friday. This will give a journey to get to the heart of what you want from your relationships and what they need from you a head start.
The Moon will visit both your romantic and relationship sectors this week and in both cases at critical times. The Moon will move through your romantic sector midweek, just as Mercury and Mars both move into opposition with Pluto, in retrograde motion here. This is on the heels of their oppositions with Saturn, already in retrograde motion in your romantic sector, over the weekend. Having the Moon move through at this critical point means that it will be under pressure as well. Yet this will also add fuel to these romantically charged lunar vibes, making it easier to sense what you are fighting for. It is over the weekend that the Moon will return to your relationship sector, just hours after Neptune's return here. By the end of the week, the doors will be open to the past and second chances across the romantic and relationship fronts.
The Moon can cause problems if it finds itself in the wrong place at the wrong time, yet even when this is seemingly the case midweek, this will prove to be a blessing in disguise. The week begins with the Moon not only in your communication sector but as a Full Moon on Monday, comes with the potential for a communication breakthrough. The Moon's friendly aspect to both planets in your relationship sector including Chiron, the planet of healing will ensure your relationships will benefit. The Moon will then go on to exacerbate any work/life balance tension midweek, but with romantically charged lunar vibes in play by the weekend this is a chance to address any work/life balance issues. The Moon's return to your romantic sector on Thursday is the only visit while Venus, the planet of love is in an adventurous part of your chart, with romantically charged lunar vibes adding fuel to a mix of romance and adventure.
As dreamy Neptune slows down ahead of his retrograde turn in your romantic sector over the weekend, the lines between the past, present and future will start to blur. In a week when there could be some pressure at times, this creates a romantic bubble that is the perfect place to escape to. Neptune spent the weekend aligned with Mars in an adventurous part of your chart and goes on, in the early days of this week to form the same friendly aspect to Mercury there. As Neptune comes to a standstill his energy becomes more intense and that means that so too will a mix of romance, passion and adventure. The Moon's return to your romantic sector over the weekend, just hours after Neptune' retrograde turn will amplify a sense of romantic nostalgia as the doors open to the past and second chances. With life about to become a lot busier professionally, Neptune will continue to guard against life becoming all work and no play.
Monday's Full Moon could bring personal and/or relationship tensions to a head, mainly because this is what it is charged with doing. This is the Full Moon that will always fall at some point during the Sun's month long visit to your relationship sector and falling in Sagittarius, is a chance to check that your own needs aren't being neglected. However, with lucky Jupiter in Sagittarius and Venus, the planet of love in your relationship sector, as the Sun and Moon clash they are on hand to ensure both you and your relationship needs benefit. By the time the Moon returns to your communication sector on Thursday, the Sun and Moon will be back on the same page. The Moon will remain here until the Sun leaves your relationship sector over the weekend, turning any wakeup calls at the start of the week into an opportunity for a communication and/or relationship breakthrough. Venus, the planet of love will stay on for another 12 days, with time on her own to work her magic.
Tensions might still be running high on the relationship front this week but running even higher, is an ability to turn this into an opportunity for a breakthrough. It was late last week that Mars, making his first visit to your relationship sector in two years, found himself under pressure from Saturn in Capricorn, for the first time here in three decades. This is now behind you, but with Mercury moving into opposition with Saturn at the start of the week and with both he and Mars going on to oppose Pluto, also in Capricorn, tension will wax and wane. Yet by then Mercury and Mars, the planets of communication and passion will be aligned in your relationship sector, for just the fourth time in two decades. The Moon's return to Capricorn midweek will amplify the intensity, but strong emotional responses as the planets of war and revolution clash and with the planet of communication on board, adds to the potential for a real breakthrough.
Despite the fact that both the Sun and Venus will find themselves under pressure from Monday's Full Moon, by the time the Moon returns to Aquarius on Thursday they will be back on the same page. With the Sun leaving your romantic sector over the weekend, any wakeup calls at the start of the week will have the support to turn this into motivation. However, chances are you won't need to wait that long with Venus, the planet of love moving into a friendly alliance with the asteroid Pallas, in an adventurous part of your chart midweek. With Venus staying on for another 12 days after the Sun leaves your romantic sector, these are likely to be the most romantically charged days of 2019. With Juno, queen of commitment and especially commitment to your relationships returning to your relationship sector on Friday, your relationships will benefit from the romantically charged conditions.
While there are some mixed conditions on the romantic front this week, hindsight will reveal even the challenges to be blessings in disguise. Both Mercury and Mars, heading towards an alignment in your romantic sector midweek find themselves under pressure. This might put up barriers, real or imagined or actual roadblocks that might put matters of the heart to the test. Either way, as Mercury and Mars face their last opposition aligned, by the weekend you will be on the other side. This will ensure that by the time the Sun returns to your romantic sector over the weekend, turning the solar spotlight onto matters of the heart and all things romantic, any barriers or roadblocks will be behind you. Regardless of what this forced you to confront, with Mars fuelling your romantic passions and fighting spirit, Mercury giving your heart a voice and the Sun turning the solar spotlight onto matters of the heart, this will be a chance to draw a new line in the sand.
