How The Planets Will Affect Your Love Life This Week
Your voice and your mind are both your own this week, allowing you to think straight about any current romantic matter. Mars, your ruling planet, turns direct on Thursday in your communication sector. You’ve likely been rehashing thoughts and outmoded ideas connected to your love life, as well as the story you tell yourself concerning matters of the heart. Over the last several weeks, you may have come to realize that this story needed some serious editing. In some cases, it required a total rewrite! In any event, you can finally let Mars embolden you to walk your new talk—straight into success.
Be careful—you might act against your own best interests this week when it comes to your love life! On Saturday, Venus will make a tense square to Uranus, with the planet of instability and excitement currently in your sign. While it’s true that this can help you wake up and revolutionize a situation in your love life that has gone stale, at the same time, it might lead to extremely reckless behavior on your part. Since Venus is at the top of your chart, there is a very real danger that whatever crazy romantic thing you do this week could damage your reputation. Forewarned is forearmed. Think it through!
After months of potentially feeling out of sorts, you can finally get your mojo back! You’ll feel stronger, sexier, and more capable of getting what you want than you probably have since late October, when assertive Mars slowed down to spin retrograde in your sign. This Thursday, Mars turns direct, and it’s time to GO! If a love situation has been on hold or in limbo for some reason, you may notice that this static feeling is starting to break apart. You’re free to get back into the driver’s seat of your love life. No matter how different the road to true love looks, you can get excited about taking this new path.
All’s fair in love and war, but all isn’t fair in love and friendship. Do yourself a favor and keep your friends out of your love life this week! Venus will make a harsh square to Uranus, the planet of sudden chaos and currently in your friendship sector, on Saturday. With Venus sliding through the deeply erotic 8th house, things might seem incredibly delicious in your personal life. The fun train may crash to a halt when Venus zaps Uranus this weekend, so be careful! One of your friends might reveal a secret you trusted him or her with about your love life. Regardless of the specifics, you could feel blindsided by betrayal. Ouch!
There’s no telling what will happen in your love life this week, but it’s sure to make some waves! Venus is currently dancing through your partnership sector and will make both a positive and difficult connection this week. She’ll first exchange a sexy vibe with Mars on Monday, making you feel like you’re finally going to get what you want in love. But then, by Saturday, Venus will square Uranus. Be careful what you wish for! Once your hopes become reality, you could encounter a moment of electric clarity. If you realize you don’t want this after all, you’ll have to navigate the situation with care—whether you’re single or coupled.
You might go completely rogue in your love life or in how you express your romantic needs. If you’re in a relationship, then your partner is likely to be absolutely thrown off their game. Your mate could expect to please you with ease by doing what they’ve always done—only to experience a cold vibe of indifference from you. You’re allowed to change your mind about things you once enjoyed, but try to update others with kindness. If you’re single, you might send a mixed message to a crush by going out of your way to do something nice for them and then acting as if they’re invisible to you. Think twice: it’s not sexy to confuse people!
Romance could feel like a roller coaster ride this week, thrilling one moment and terrifying the next! Venus is moving through your true love sector, which is a strong place for supporting romantic happenings. She’ll be at a gorgeous angle to sexy Mars on Monday, which might help spark interest from someone. This is exciting, but by Saturday, you might wish you’d declined the offer. Venus will square Uranus, letting you know loud and clear if this person is moving way too fast for you. If you’re already in a relationship, you might find out that your sweetheart has been spending money erratically. Either way, you probably won’t be pleased.
You may feel like you’re getting your sexy back this week in a major way! Mars, your traditional ruler and the planet ruling desire for everyone, will turn direct on Thursday after having been retrograde since October last year. With Mars getting back into motion in your 8th House of Desire, you might feel yourself waking up in a major way. Perhaps you intentionally shut yourself down for some time to deal with a romantic dry spell. It’s also possible that you went through an emotional shutdown because you needed to deal with a painful romantic situation in your past. Whatever the details, you’re now ready to move forward and heal—especially when it comes to your intimate life.
You may have been in a rough spot with love and relationship matters for quite some time. Fortunately, you’re about to recover the knowledge of where you’re going. Mars, the planet of assertive drive, turns direct in your partnership sector on Thursday after having been retrograde since October 30, helping you take decisive action. You might have struggled with anger issues about your current love life situation or a past one that remained unresolved. In some cases, this means realizing that you and your current partner are not meant to be on the same path after all. Ultimately, you’ll have the strength to make whatever move you need to.
Whoever said that love doesn’t cost a thing wasn’t paying attention to what’s happening in your love life! Venus is moving through your 2nd House of Self-Worth, and on Saturday, she’ll make a difficult link to Uranus, presently in your romance sector. There might be sudden interest from someone that makes you feel great one minute but then shocked the next. It may become clear that this person has an agenda—and you’ll know about it sooner rather than later. If you’re in a relationship, then you might need to literally stop spending so much money on date nights. Don’t break the bank, even in the name of love.
You’re gorgeous, Aquarius—unfortunately, that doesn’t stop your love life from turning into a hot mess if you’re not careful. Venus in your sign gives you a lovely edge of allure. She’ll make a gorgeous link to Mars, now in your romance sector, on Monday, and then Mars will turn direct on Thursday. If you’re hoping to get a recent romance off the ground with someone special, the light is finally turning green! On the other hand, those already in relationships may have a problem. Venus squares Uranus on Saturday, inviting a family member to insert themselves into your love life when they really shouldn’t. Watch out!
You might be trying to keep your love life a secret—whether or not you are, the cat’s almost definitely out of the bag this week! Venus is tucked away into your hidden 12th house, supporting a more reclusive kind of love. Perhaps you’ve got good reason to be quiet about romantic matters. Maybe your lover wants you to stop posting pictures all over social media and just focus on being in the moment together. Or you could be involved in a salacious affair, and if someone finds out, there will be trouble. Whatever the details, private matters of the heart can become public all too quickly when Venus squares Uranus on Saturday. You’ve been warned.
