The conditions couldn't be better for making the most of Mars' last and Juno's first full week in your relationship sector. Both came under pressure from planets in Aries over the weekend, exposing any balance issues between your personal and relationship needs. For Mars, the warrior planet of the cosmos and your ruling planet, that better sense of what you want from your relationships and what they need from you makes it easier for him to leave you with something to continue to fight for. At the same time with Juno, queen of commitment and especially commitment to your relationships here until September 2020, this has given her a clear mandate from the get go. By the time the Moon returns to your communication sector midweek, any relationship tension will have dialled back. This will be a valuable chance then to give your emotional responses and relationships a voice.
This week's Full Moon in Taurus is both an ordinary event and an opportunity for a whole new sense of authenticity on the relationship front. This is the Full Moon that will always fall at some point during the Sun's month long visit to your relationship sector, so at around this time every year. Yet it is in the lead up to the Full Moon midweek that we will have a rare Mercury transit or eclipse in your relationship sector, where tiny Mercury will cross the face of the Sun. For a few hours, Mercury becomes the most powerful force in the solar system and in retrograde motion in your relationship sector, this gives the planet of communication the means to really give your relationships, the past and unsaid words a voice. What makes the timing auspicious, is that this happens in the build up to the Full Moon and just as tension between your personal and relationship needs is building.
For any other planets, pressure from not only planets on the other side of the sky but the Moon as well would put a dent in their confidence. For Mars, the planet of personal and professional, that clash over the weekend has only made him more motivated as he moves into his last full week in your romantic sector. Mars is on a mission to not only fuel your romantic passions and fighting spirit but to leave you with something to continue to fight for. This comes just as Venus moves into her final two and Jupiter his final three weeks in your relationship sector, with the planets of love and luck literally drawing closer by the day. With truly stunning planetary activity in play on the romantic and relationship fronts the timing of this week's Full Moon couldn't be better, as it puts knowing when to keep your work hat on and when to take it off to the test.
This is one week where, in hindsight, a challenge is revealed to be a blessing in disguise. The challenge was quite a severe clash between forces on the home and career fronts over the weekend, bringing work/life balance issues to a head just as this professional year is about to become a lot busier. However, with the message delivered this will prove to be extremely timely, with romantic and relationship matters benefiting from this. With Venus and Jupiter, the planets of love and luck just weeks away from your relationship sector, there is a growing sense of anticipation on the relationship front. However, closer to home we have a rare Mercury eclipse or transit in your romantic sector on Tuesday. Mercury, in retrograde motion will cross the face of the Sun and while he is too small to block out the light in a way that a solar eclipse can, this will bring the past, present and future together in a stunning way. A Mercury transit can only happen in your romantic or friendship sectors and the next is 13 years away.
As you move into the new week Venus is preparing to move into her final two and Jupiter his final three weeks in your romantic sector, with the planets of love and luck literally drawing closer by the day. While they won't align until Venus' last full day here, already this is creating some of the most potent romantic conditions of the year. The only problem is that with a professionally charged Full Moon this week and major new developments on the job front in just a few weeks' time, there is competition. Fortunately, while this week's Full Moon is a clash between the Moon on the career and the Sun on the home front, this work/life balance clash brings the right reminders at the right time. The message from the love gods is that if you can create the right work/life balance, they will take it from there. All the planets of love and luck ask for is space to operate.
While this week's Full Moon is a clash between the Sun and Moon and this will have no direct impact on romantic or relationship matters, it will have an indirect impact on both and fortunately, in a positive and exciting way. Falling in an adventurous part of your chart, this will see the Moon move into a friendly aspect to the planets in your romantic sector as it moves through, bringing the spirit of romance and adventure together. The Full Moon falls just two weeks before Venus and just three weeks before Jupiter are due to return to your romantic sector, with the planets of love and luck preparing to kick off your luckiest year for love in over a decade. At the same time the Sun is in your communication sector, where together with Mercury and Neptune there is some serious support for giving your relationships, the past and unsaid words a voice. This adventurous Full Moon will energise things romantically, while giving the communication lines the right push at the right time.
The Moon's departure from your relationship sector in the early hours of the week will see strong emotional responses and any relationship tension over the weekend dial back. This was more a case of the Moon appearing to be in the wrong place at the wrong time, moving through your relationship sector just both planets in Libra were in separate oppositions with both planets in your relationship sector. This was a complicated mix that put the right planets in the right place at the right time. One of those planets was Mars, who is on a mission to see you take your personal power back, as he spends his last full week in Libra. At the same time, while having only returned to Libra last week, Juno is the queen of commitment and especially commitment to your relationships. This was a clash between your personal and relationship needs, between planets committed getting to the heart of what you want from your relationships and what they need from you.
At some point during your birthday month the Sun will be confronted by a Full Moon in your relationship sector, making this week's Full Moon an ordinary event. However, for just the second time in eight decades you have Uranus in your relationship sector, who will be using this to not just put a balance between your personal and relationship needs to the test but to create something authentic from this. In addition, with Uranus in retrograde motion in your relationship sector and Mercury, the planet of communication in retrograde motion in Scorpio, there is a real chance to give your emotional responses, relationships, the past and unsaid words a voice. Things might be quite emotionally charged during the first three days of the week, but with a very real chance for a breakthrough. You will emerge from this with a better sense of what you want from your relationships and what they need from you. In the meantime, Mercury will also be highlighting the doors open to the past and second chances on the romantic front as well.
Starting the week with the Moon in your romantic sector is always an advantage. Even with the Moon leaving in the early hours of the week and even after having come under some pressure over the weekend. As the Moon's only visit while Venus, the planet of love is in Sagittarius, both the romantically charged lunar vibes that run their course in the early hours of the week and any wakeup calls over the weekend, are in safe hands. There is even an opportunity for healing, with a friendly aspect between the asteroid Pallas, in her first full week in Sagittarius and Chiron, the planet of healing, in retrograde motion in your romantic sector. In the meantime, while the Moon's return to your relationship sector on Wednesday will put some pressure on the planets in Sagittarius, again, this is the Moon's only visit while Venus is there. This is an important chance to get to the heart of what you want from your relationships and what they need from you.
A romantically charged Full Moon will dominate the first three days of the week, with the Moon returning to your romantic sector almost 48 hours before becoming a Full Moon. This is the most romantically charged Full Moon of any year, but it is the timing that makes this auspicious and for two reasons. While this is a Full Moon that falls at this time every year, it is the first time in eight decades that Uranus has not only been here at the time but in retrograde motion, while Venus is in a nostalgic part of your chart. Just as Venus is taking your heart on a nostalgic trip down love's memory lane, the Full Moon opens the doors to the past and second chances. However, this will also jumpstart the spirit of romance just two weeks before Venus, the planet of love is due to return to Capricorn, opening the doors to new beginnings.
In between moving into the new week and the Moon's return to your romantic sector on Wednesday, is a Full Moon that couldn't come with better timing. When the Moon returns for its second to last visit to your romantic sector for the year, this will open the doors to the most romantically charged days of this month. With Venus returning to Aquarius next month and the planet of love due to spend a huge amount of time in your romantic sector next year, these romantically charged lunar vibes need to be embraced. Why that Full Moon you must get through first is important, is that this is a Full Moon that at this time every year will expose and put any work/life balance issues to a test. This means you have one of the most important work/life balance reminders of any year, in the lead up to some romantically charged days. A friendly aspect to Mars will create a mix of romance, passion and adventure.
Thanks to the Moon, both romantic and relationship matters get a boost this week and with the pace of this professional year picking up, the timing couldn't be better. It is your relationships that get a boost from a Full Moon in your communication sector in the early part of the week. With the Moon returning nearly 48 hours before the Full Moon, this makes the first three days of the week all about having the communication lines open. As the Moon's first visit since the last planet left your relationship sector last week, the timing couldn't be better. In the meantime, it is the Moon's return to your romantic sector over the weekend that has equally good timing. These romantically charged lunar vibes set the scene for a romantically charged weekend. The Moon's friendly aspect to the Sun, in his last weekend in an adventurous part of your chart and Mercury his last in retrograde motion there by then, this will create a potent mix of romance, adventure and nostalgia.
