Monthly Love, Aug 2017

While the solar eclipse in your romantic sector is still another two week away, Tuesday’s lunar eclipse is the opening shot across the bows. This is the wakeup call, alerting you to what is literally a total eclipse of the heart. There is a major awakening to come, a chance to hit the reset button and from wherever you are, embrace the future. If the total solar eclipse later in the month is a time of major new romantic beginnings, then Tuesday’s lunar eclipse is the alarm clock going off. This comes just as Jupiter not only emerges from some fairly tough days, but just as he’s getting ready to move into his final two months in your relationship sector. Across the romantic and relationship front, a year that began with so much promise and potential is now coming to fruition. The love and relationship gods are letting you know that it’s show time.

Having returned to your romantic sector in late July for what should be a 15 day visit, Mercury should be in his final days as we move into the new week. By Wednesday Mercury will have been here for two weeks. Thursday is the point where Mercury’s mission to give your heart a voice and to put heart and mind on the same page should run its course. But you know where this story is going, for Mercury is doing exactly the opposite. Instead of moving on Mercury is slowing down and over the weekend will turn retrograde. With the Sun still 10 days away by that stage, this is an opportunity for U turn and a do over. By the time the solar spotlight eventually falls onto matters of the heart, the doors will have been open to the past and second chances for 10 days. In the lead up to Mercury’s retrograde turn it might feel that matters of the heart are moving slowly or not at all, but this is why.

Gemini
Mon, 07 Aug 2017 00:00:00 GMT
Both romantic and relationship matters had some important wakeup calls last week. In different ways, but in the way that they both needed. It was Venus, planet of love’s departure from Gemini last week that left you with some high expectations and a really big challenge. For the last time for another 12 years you have lucky Jupiter in your romantic sector and for the last time for another 28 years, you have Saturn in your relationship sector. These are some very big shoes to fill and some high expectations to look up to. Yet pressure on Jupiter last week has made what you want from love a lot clearer. While Jupiter will move into his final two months on Friday, there is help from the love gods through to the end of the year. This comes just as Saturn is moving into his final weeks in retrograde motion in your relationship sector, with support to give the past and unsaid words a voice.

Cancer

Last week saw the Moon visit both your romantic and relationship sectors, with very different implications. However, the timing couldn’t have been better. The Moon was in your romantic sector when Venus, planet of love returned to Cancer last week. Having romantically charged lunar vibes in play from the get go was important, but the game changer was the clues to major romantic developments ahead. No matter your current reality, the Moon left you with the kind of romantic confidence that might border on pipedreams. That’s okay, for Venus is in Cancer until later in the month and will continue to bring more clues. What you’re being alerted to is your luckiest year for love in over a decade, now just two months away. The Moon’s return to your relationship sector over the weekend had a lot more wakeup calls. In both cases you heard what you needed to hear.

As much as this is an important point of the year for matters of the heart, a lunar eclipse in your relationship sector on Tuesday will temporarily steal all the thunder. The Moon is in your relationship sector from Monday, so the week will start with strong emotional responses already in effect. As an eclipsing Full Moon this could see relationship tensions rise, but with the element of fate in play this increases the potential for a breakthrough. This is a lot more potent than the Full Moon that falls here at this time every year, because of what has been building behind the scenes for months now. It is once the Moon leaves on the Wednesday that you’ll have a chance to process the implications. Yet this is linked into some powerful relationship undercurrents that are in play for at least another 12 months and with a total lunar eclipse here next year it really is all about the journey.

Virgo

The romantically charged lunar vibes that dominated the weekend are likely to have had some bite to them. The Moon had not only come full circle from last month’s Full Moon, but at a time when Pluto, the planet working behind the scenes on the romantic front, was himself under pressure. This may have brought some wakeup calls or even difficulties. But the result was an opportunity for a jump start and a reset. The Moon has moved on, but it has left you in no doubt that old excuses aren’t being tolerated, at a time when the doors are open to the past and second chances. There may also be some wakeup calls when the Moon returns to your relationship sector on Wednesday. For the first time this year the Moon returns to find planets in Virgo and in opposition. This may see relationship tension temporarily spike. Yet this comes with the potential to give your emotional responses and relationships a voice.

Libra

Starting the week with the Moon in your romantic sector is always an advantage, but even more when on Tuesday this becomes a fateful lunar eclipse. This is an eclipse of the heart, with the element of fate and the strong reboot it can bring, directly impacting matters of the heart. This has the power to jumpstart a lagging love life or even end a romantic drought. This can have fateful connotations, whether you realise it at the time or not. Often it is only in hindsight that we can look back and join the dots, appreciating the coincidences we didn’t fully appreciate at the time. Tuesday’s lunar eclipse is the tip of a very large iceberg that will continue to have fateful connotations until late 2018. Fate could be intersecting in your life in ways that will have little meaning now, but will have huge implications down the line. Let your heart and these romantically charged lunar vibes take the lead.

As she spends her first full week in an adventurous part of your chart Venus, planet of love is forming the same alliances that every other planet that has passed through this year has. It all started with Mars’ return to an adventurous part of your chart in early June and his special relationship with dreamy Neptune. Mars and Neptune began the year aligned in your romantic sector, with 2017 kicking off with your romantic passions and dreams aligned. Mars moved on, but his return to an adventurous part of your chart was a chance to once more support those dreams. Mars was here when Neptune turned retrograde, opening the doors to the past and second chances. This has created a potent cocktail of nostalgic, romantic, adventurous and passionate forces that still lingers. As the planet of love, Venus knows exactly what to do with this. A mix of romance, adventure and nostalgia will be especially potent over the weekend.

Sagittarius

When Venus left your relationship sector last week a number of things happened. The first thing this did was leave you with a clear sense of what you want from your relationships and what they need from you. This was more confident than the messages the other planets passing through had left you with, because it came from the heart. You might intellectually know what you want and need from your relationships, but what your heart is telling you matters. The second thing this did was wrap up all planetary activity on the relationship front this year. This Moon will return each month, but apart from that you and your relationships are on their own. Or are they? The last thing they did before she and the other planet left was align with the South Node in your communication sector. It is communication that will keep your relationships on track. This is why Tuesday’s lunar eclipse in your communication sector is so important.

Capricorn

Venus, planet of love only returned to your relationship sector last Tuesday, but already both she and you have been through it all. Venus’ return started on a high, with the Moon not only creating ideal conditions for friendship and relationship building, but with hints of more support to come. Venus also returned to find Ceres, queen of nurturing here, giving you a clear sense of what you want and need from your relationships from the get go. It was the Moon’s return to Capricorn just in time for the weekend that put pressure on Venus and your relationships. This could have created some relationship tension over the weekend. Yet things take another turn this week, this time for the better. Not only will Venus and Ceres align over the weekend, but just as they both align with forces on the communication front. This is a complete flip from last weekend, with the potential for a real breakthrough.

Aquarius

At some point during the Sun’s month long visit to your relationship sector and therefore at this time every year, the Moon will visit Aquarius in order to check on your needs. This will always create a Full Moon designed to check that during the most important point of any year for relationship matters that this isn’t at the expense of your own personal truth. This can see personal and/or relationship tensions rise. The week begins with the Moon already in Aquarius, but Tuesday’s Full Moon comes with a lot more clout and the element of fate. Just two weeks before a total solar eclipse in your relationship sector, this lunar eclipse is a chance to bring any balance issues or tensions to a head. This may see relationship tensions rise at the start of the week, but with Uranus in his first full week in retrograde motion in your communication sector, it comes with a chance to give you, your relationships, the past and unsaid words a voice.

Pisces

The love gods are thumbing their nose at a busy week, especially on the job front but across all aspects of your life. Last week when Venus, planet of love, returned to your romantic sector she started with a ‘two can play at that game’ attitude. This was in response to the massive developments in play across the income, work and career fronts. Venus takes this to a whole new level. Apart from when the Moon returns to your romantic sector later in the month, this has the potential to be Venus’ most romantically charged week. The weekend in particular. When Venus returned last week it was to find Ceres, queen of nurturing here. These two goddesses of the solar system met up here four years ago, but their alignment over the weekend is their first in your romantic sector in nine years. Here Ceres’ mission, to get to the heart of what you want from love, aligns with Venus’ mission, to give you what you want from love.
