With the Moon's first visits to your romantic and relationship sectors for the year behind you and no planetary activity on either front, there is a chance to let things settle. However, a romantically charged New Moon next week does mean there is something pending. For now though, there is a chance to let things settle and especially as you adjust to less volatile times on the relationship front. 2020 saw a near constant policing of a balance between your personal and relationship needs, something that you now get to benefit from. The two main themes to focus on this week is a chance to ensure the communication lines are open and finding a way to balance having Venus in a competitively charged part of your chart. As the planet of love, Venus is giving you a chance to update your romantic and relationship goals for the coming year but without turning this into a competition.
Buoyed by a friendly aspect to first Mars in Taurus and then later last week Uranus, Venus is full of confidence as she moves into her second week in an adventurous part of your chart. While Venus won't make direct contact with either again until she leaves early next month her mission to bring the spirit of romance and adventure together has backing. Mars has added passion to the mix while Uranus has helped to bring the laws of attraction and synchronicity together. Venus didn't visit this adventurous part of your chart at all in 2020 and as Mars didn't visit Taurus either, both are ready to make up for lost time. While Mars has returned to fuel your passions, drive and competitive spirit across the board, he is helping Venus out by adding to a mix of romance, passion and adventure. This will get a boost from the Moon will it returns to Taurus midweek.
Last week not only began with the Moon in your relationship sector but with Venus, the planet of love having just left. This was a chance to regroup but also transition from a short to a long term focus. With Venus gone but the South Node and the asteroid Juno, the queen of commitment and especially commitment to your relationships staying on, a time of defining what you want from your relationships was over and the real journey had begun. A week on things have settled even more but once again, it is the Moon that will have an impact. This time it is due to its return to your friendship sector on Monday, which will see the Moon form a friendly aspect to both the South Node and Juno before leaving midweek. As well as creating positive conditions for friendship and relationship building, this can bring a sense of confidence. Especially when it comes to the journey ahead.
After last week's New Moon in your relationship sector, there has been a chance to draw a new line in the sand but there is another, less official line able to be drawn this week. Until leaving your relationship sector on Wednesday, the Sun will not only keep the solar spotlight on your relationships but will work to keep things real and authentic, with his departure creating a significant shift in focus. For the last three years, when the Sun left your relationship sector he handed over the reins to the hard taskmaster of the cosmos, with his reality checks a vital part of a three year relationship boot camp. However, what makes the Sun's departure this week such a line in the sand is that with Saturn gone he instead hands the reins over to Venus, with the planet of love staying on for another two weeks. Instead of working on the homework set for you, Venus will work to bring the magic into your relationships.
When the Moon left your relationship sector over the weekend this not only wrapped up its first visit for the year but since Saturn and Jupiter returned just before Christmas and Mercury, the planet of communication a week earlier. Normally the first visit for the year, especially if the Sun has yet to return, is more a chance to check in and become more emotionally engaged. While that was still the case, this was also your first read on the planets that will make 2021 a massive year for relationship matters. By then Mercury had already aligned with Saturn and Jupiter and slowing down ahead of a retrograde turn at the end of next week, he is taking communication seriously. By the time the Sun returns to your relationship sector on Wednesday and turns the solar spotlight onto your relationships, it will be to reveal the massive support available. Whether single, in a relationship or between relationships, this is the start of a new journey.
While the Moon will leave your relationship sector on Monday, starting the week emotionally engaged will prove to be a massive advantage. This is the Moon's first visit for the year and while this was always going to be a valuable chance to check in, it is the timing that makes this even more auspicious. It was on Sunday that the Moon aligned with dreamy Neptune and the dwarf planet Ceres, who since last April have been working as a team to update your relationship dreams, needs and priorities. There is nothing unusual about this, as this has happened every four weeks, with the Moon returning to check in and to amplify the progress you have made. The difference this time is that it comes just as Neptune and Ceres are due to align, for the first and only time here. Their alignment runs from Tuesday to Friday, beginning just a day after the Moon leaves. This is a chance for a deep dive into your relationship dreams, needs and priorities.
The Moon only left your romantic sector over the weekend, with its first visit for the year leaving you with your first insight into the massive planetary activity that has begun building there. While the Moon has moved on, these romantically charged lunar vibes have left you with an indelible read on the planets set to make 2021 a lucky year for love. By the time the Sun returns on Wednesday, you won't need the solar spotlight to tell you the love gods are active. Meanwhile, the Moon will return for its first visit to your relationship sector for the year on Monday and once again this will reveal massive changes since its visit last month. However, unlike the romantic influences, which have expanded exponentially, on the relationship front things have scaled back. The Moon returns 11 days after Mars left, with his departure dialling back a lot of the intensity but not the momentum or motivation.
Starting the week with the Moon in your romantic sector is always an advantage and especially when it is the first visit for the year. However, while the Moon will leave on Monday, these romantically charged lunar vibes are just a taste of things to come. It was over the weekend that the Moon aligned with dreamy Neptune and the dwarf planet Ceres, something that has happened every four weeks since they joined forces to update your heart's dreams, needs and priorities last April. The difference this time is that it is on Tuesday, just a day after the Moon leaves that Neptune and Ceres will align for the first and only time. With the faster planets starting to return next month, those that have the power to help you turn desires into reality and lucky Jupiter returning in May, this is a chance for a deep dive into your heart's dreams, needs and priorities ahead of some fresh opportunities on the romantic front.
The Moon returns for its first visit to your romantic sector for the year on Monday but also its first since Mars' departure 11 days earlier. This was always going to be a valuable chance to check in but this first visit since Mars' longest visit in 32 years ended will be its first without the warrior planet of the cosmos here in seven months. Because Mars has only just left the romantically charged lunar vibes in the first half of the week will amplify the romantic passions and fighting spirit he left you with. However, a week after the dwarf planet Eris turned direct there will be a noticeably slower and less urgent pace. As the warrior princess of the cosmos, Eris will continue to keep your romantic passions and fighting spirit fuelled but instead of Mars' hot headed enthusiasm she operates through cold headed determination. This is also a chance to look at where to from here.
It is all go on the romantic front this week, with the kind of intensity that could lead to a breakthrough. Regardless of where things stand on the romantic front, whether you are looking for love, have found someone to love or a current relationship could do with a little more romance, there is a call to buckle up. While the Moon's return to your romantic sector midweek will see romantically charged lunar vibes add fuel and intensity there will already be a bonfire raging by then. This is thanks to an alignment between Mars and Uranus on Wednesday and Thursday, for the first time in your romantic sector in eight decades. Mars is the planet of passion and the warrior planet of the cosmos and Uranus is the planet of surprise, synchronicity and the unexpected. Where Uranus can create the potential for unexpected developments, Mars' hot headed enthusiasm allows you to seize the moment. The Moon will return just as this alignment is running its course, with romantically charged lunar vibes adding fuel to the fire.
While the Moon won't return to your romantic sector until the weekend, this is one time when it is better to wait. It is always better to have the Moon return over the weekend than during the working week and especially as this will be the Moon's first visit for the year. The Moon will return on Saturday and is then here until early next week, setting the scene for a romantically charged weekend. This is the Moon's only visit to your romantic sector while Venus, the planet of love is in a nostalgic part of your chart and the last before she returns to Aquarius, fuelling a mix of romantic nostalgia and anticipation. Venus didn't visit this nostalgic part of your chart at all in 2020, with romantically charged lunar vibes adding to the nostalgic trip down love's memory lane she is already taking your heart on. At the same time, the Moon will also be looking to the future just days before Venus is due to do the same. This could see the past, present and future come together under the same romantic umbrella.
With the Moon's first visit to your relationship sector for the year behind you but its first to your romantic sector for the year and since a romantically charged Full Moon late last month still a week away, there is a chance for a firebreak between the two. Knowing that the Moon will not only return to your romantic sector early next week but will come full circle from last month's Full Moon, something that will carry a lot more weight, this gives you time to make your life as love friendly as possible. At the same time, with a lot of focus on communication this week and a very real chance for a communication breakthrough, this is a chance to give anything the Moon's first visit to your relationship sector may have exposed a voice. Anytime there is activity on the communication front your relationships will benefit but an alignment between Mars and Uranus in your communication sector creates the potential for a breakthrough. Mars has returned to declare war on communication barriers and this week he gets that chance.
