While Mars left your romantic sector last week and Venus the week before, the imprint that the planets of love and passion have made on matters of the heart lives on. This week it is the Sun and Mercury that take up the mantle, with a focus on matters of the heart that began with Mars' return in June now moving into its final phase. The Sun will keep the solar spotlight on matters of the heart for another three weeks while Mercury's first and only full week in your romantic sector is a chance to give your heart a voice and to put heart and mind on the same page. The Moon's return to your romantic sector on Saturday not only sets the scene for a romantically charged weekend but begins the lead up to a New Moon that can give matters of the heart extra leverage. Meanwhile, with Venus just two weeks away from your relationship sector, there is a new focus on communication. As the dwarf planet Ceres spends her first full week in your communication sector, she is joined by the Moon on Monday for a deep dive into your communication needs and priorities.
Another week and there is even more focus on matters of the heart, as Mars joins Venus to spend his first full week in your romantic sector. Last year Venus didn't return until late October and Mars didn't return at all but three weeks before the Sun is due to turn the solar spotlight onto matters of the heart the planets of love and passion are already on the job. It was over the weekend and into the early hours of the new week that the Moon is not only helping to boost your romantic confidence but is amplifying a mix of nostalgia, romance, passion and adventure that is a taste of things to come. It was the Moon's return to Taurus over the weekend, friendly aspect to both Venus and Mars and then to Pluto, in retrograde motion in an adventurous part of your chart before leaving on Monday that mirrors what lies ahead but on a much larger scale. On Tuesday a friendly aspect between Venus and Uranus in Taurus sets the scene for serendipitous moments and/or encounters.
While the focus is on your relationships this week, behind the scenes preparations are in place for the start of the most romantically charged months of 2021, which start in just two weeks. It is Venus, the planet of love's return to your romantic sector in two weeks from Monday that will begin the most romantically charged months of 2021 but it is the support she will find that will make this even more special. That support will come from Jupiter, who is spending his first full week back in an adventurous part of your chart and the dwarf planet Ceres, who is spending her first full week in Gemini. Meanwhile, the asteroid Juno's direct turn in your relationship sector on Tuesday comes just as the Sun and Mercury, the planet of communication are aligned in your communication sector. The Moon might push some buttons at the time but it is a case of the right push at the right time, creating the potential for a breakthrough.
What a difference a week can make. It was just last Monday that a clash between Mercury, in his final days in Cancer and Pluto, in retrograde motion in your relationship sector had once again put a balance between your personal and relationship needs to the test. This was the same clash that the Sun, Mars and Venus made as they moved through Cancer, something that created relationship tension but has also left you with a better sense of what you want from your relationships and what they need from you. A week on and with no planets left in Cancer the tension is gone and in its place, you have Venus and Mars, the planets of love and passion in your communication sector. Over the coming weeks, they will move towards a friendly aspect to Pluto. Where there was tension between your personal and relationship needs there is now support and especially on the communication front.
A clash between the Sun and Mercury, aligned in Leo and Saturn, in retrograde motion in your relationship sector might create some relationship tension on Monday but with perfect timing. This is the same clash that Mars and Venus encountered as they moved through, putting a balance between your personal and relationship needs to the test. This was something that a recent Full Moon also put to the test. This is the first time in three decades that you have moved into a new solar year with Saturn in your relationship sector, with the bar raised on your relationship expectations but with the Sun making sure that your own needs aren't forgotten as a result. As this involves Mercury, the planet of communication is on hand to turn this into a breakthrough. What makes the timing auspicious is that it comes just as lucky Jupiter is spending his first full week back in your relationship sector.
Romantic and relationship matters are both experiencing improved conditions this week and for the latter, even though Jupiter retrograded back out of your relationship sector last week. This has not only left dreamy Neptune behind on his own but as Venus and Mars, the planets of love and passion spend their first full week together in Virgo, there is a lot less push back. Last week Mars returned to Virgo just a day after Jupiter left your relationship sector, avoiding a clash. This has seen a lot of the relationship pressure drop while leaving you with more than enough relationship support. Meanwhile, Venus and Mars' return to Virgo is good news for Pluto, in retrograde motion in your romantic sector. While it will take several weeks before they move into a friendly aspect, adventurous lunar vibes that run their course on Monday and their friendly aspect to all three bring a taste of things to come.
On both the romantic and relationship fronts there is a strong sense of nostalgia in the air this week, with the doors opening a little wider to the past and second chances. Just having Venus, the planet of love in a nostalgic part of your chart is going to take your heart on a nostalgic trip down love's memory lane that will end in her return to Libra in two weeks. When Venus returned last month it was to find Saturn in retrograde motion in your romantic sector and the dwarf planet Ceres in her first full day in retrograde motion in your relationship sector. However, things took a turn for the better for Venus when last week Jupiter retrograded back into your romantic sector. With the planets of love and luck both holding the doors open to the past and second chances, the romantic nostalgia in the air has intensified to a point not seen in over a decade. While Venus is only in a nostalgic part of your chart for another two weeks, Jupiter will remain in retrograde motion in your romantic sector until October.
Neptune and Uranus are planets that share a lot in common this week. With Neptune in your romantic and Uranus in your relationship sector until 2026, they already have a lot in common, both on a long term journey that will end at roughly the same time. However, they share something else in common in that they are both spending their first full week on their own after departures last week. It began when, after just two and a half months in your romantic sector Jupiter left last week. Because Jupiter retrograded back out he will return later in the year, with a chance for dreamy Neptune to focus more on his nostalgic trip down love's memory lane. It was over the weekend that the dwarf planet Ceres left your relationship sector, after spending two and a half months updating your relationship needs and priorities. She two will not only return later in the year but just days before Jupiter's return to your romantic sector.
It is your relationships that have received a significant new boost, something that will become evident in the early days of the week. It began with the dwarf planet Ceres' return to your relationship sector over the weekend, returning for the first time in four years to begin a deeper dive into your relationship needs and priorities. The Moon's return to your relationship sector on Monday will not only be a chance to become more emotionally engaged as you begin this new journey but will draw your attention to the communication support available. The Moon returns to your relationship sector every four weeks and as has been the case with every visit so far this year, this includes a friendly aspect to Saturn, in retrograde motion in your communication sector. However, it is the Moon's friendly aspect to Jupiter, in his first full week back in your communication sector that will make it even easier to give your emotional responses, relationships, the past and unsaid words a voice.
As you move into the new week the Moon is just wrapping up its monthly visit to your romantic sector, getting the week off to a romantically charged start and with perfect timing. This is the Moon's first visit since Venus and Mars, the planets of love and passion returned to an adventurous part of your chart and a friendly aspect to them over the weekend and to Pluto, in retrograde motion in Capricorn just before leaving on Monday is a taste of things to come. Where the Moon was able to bring a mix of nostalgia, romance, passion and adventure together for a few days, the same planetary aspects will play out over the coming weeks. The first is a friendly aspect between Venus in an adventurous part of your chart and Uranus in your romantic sector on Tuesday, something that could also trigger serendipitous moments and/or encounters.
When Mercury left your romantic sector last month it brought a period of planetary activity that had begun with Mars' return in March to a close. Or at least that was the case, with the Moon returning to your romantic sector on Monday to find the dwarf planet Ceres here for the first time in four years. Ceres returned over the weekend and here now until just before Christmas, she is in the early days of a deep dive into your heart's needs and priorities. After months of planetary activity, there is more than enough romantic momentum, with Ceres returning to give you a better sense of where to channel this. This adds more weight to the romantically charged lunar vibes that will dominate the first half of the week. This comes just as the Sun and Mercury, the planet of communication are spending their first and only week together in your relationship sector. This is putting the solar spotlight on your relationships while giving your relationships a voice.
Even though the Moon will leave on Monday, just starting the week with the Moon in your communication sector will always be an advantage. Until now, with no planetary activity in your relationship sector since last year, the Moon's return and its alignment with planets on the communication front have been the only support your relationships have had. However, when the Moon returned to your communication sector over the weekend it was to find Venus and Mars in your relationship sector. The Moon moved into a friendly aspect to both over the weekend, allowing you to begin the week feeling more confident and better able to give your relationships a voice. This will get a further boost when Venus moves into a friendly aspect to Uranus in your communication sector on Tuesday. As the planets that rule through the laws of attraction and synchronicity, this could lead to some unexpected, serendipitous or eureka moments.
