Actions may speak louder than words this week, thanks to a positive dose of expansive Martian energy. On Tuesday, Mars will link up to Jupiter, offering plenty of confidence and gusto to pursue your heart’s desire. On Saturday, Venus will be at a sextile to Saturn, helping keep both feet on the ground while you allow your heart to soar. By Sunday, however, the Sun will square off with Neptune, and all may not be what it appears to be despite your idealism.
Your heart takes flight this week when the Sun, ruler of your 5th House of Romance, enters optimistic Sagittarius on Thursday. You may feel a stronger sense of wanderlust, and if so now will be an ideal time to consider a vacation with your sweetheart. The more exotic the better! On Sunday, you might feel all warm and fuzzy as you and your love enjoy a spiritual connection that may feel too good to be true. Ask your lover to pinch you so you know you’re not really dreaming.
A scintillating conversation with your lover will likely get your heart racing on Tuesday. Even if you can’t see each other on this day, be sure to spend time on the phone or exchange a few sexy text messages. If you live together, the act of your mate doing housework or cooking dinner will really turn you on. Don’t forget to offer a proper thank you! On Saturday, Venus will be at a supportive link to Saturn and you’ll take a step back to feel grateful for where you are in your relationship: Secure.
Talking to a coworker you trust about an intimate matter in your personal life may help you sort things out on Wednesday. If it’s a colleague you have romantic feelings for, you might be surprised at how easy it is to reveal your emotional state by Saturday. Although your focus will be on committed partnership after Thursday, you might have the one you love on a higher pedestal than he or she deserves — especially on Sunday. Open your heart … and your eyes.
You and your partner may work together to make a vital decision on Wednesday. Whatever is happening, know that the choice you make as a couple will further empower your relationship. On Saturday, you’ll continue to enjoy a feeling of solidarity with your mate. If you have children together, you’ll be in complete agreement over how to handle a testy situation. If you don’t, you may create a framework around a joint creative endeavor. One thing is certain: This week your relationship will be rock-solid.
Romance will take center stage this week, which will surely delight you. The catch? You may be so enamored with the glamorous trappings of your love life that you neglect to separate fantasy from reality. The good news is that with the Sun entering your romance sector on Thursday, you’ll shine a light on making love … and making love work. Still, a nasty square from the Sun to Neptune on Sunday might leave you licking wounds of disappointment when it comes to your intimate life. A fantasy might be better off kept to yourself — at least for now.
You’ll have plenty of motivation to spice up your social life early in the week, which will help your love life, ultimately. On Tuesday, consider attending a meeting or other social function. If single, you might not leave the event alone! On Saturday, a stabilizing conversation between you and your sweetheart (if attached) will convince you that working together strategically is what it takes to make any love relationship work. A joint decision you make on this day will stand the test of time.
Behind the scenes support from your partner might be the catalyst prompting you to reach for new professional heights. Although your mate could prefer to remain a silent cheerleader, don’t underestimate his or her ability to make you feel capable of achieving your goals. By Saturday, you and your partner will likely feel more secure about a domestic or financial matter. If you’re considering an investment in real estate, you’ll be on the same page when it comes to how much you can realistically afford.
A serious conversation about a love relationship will be in order this week, and it may take place on Wednesday or Saturday. This might not even be a talk with your mate, but it could be a private dialogue you have with yourself instead. Don’t avoid this honest assessment. If you can sort out whatever holds you back in matters of the heart, it’s possible you’ll finally feel free to give your all in love. With Saturn in your sign, you are certainly ready for commitment. The question is, have you found the right person to commit to?
With the Sun moving into your sign on Thursday, you’ll have an “anything is possible” outlook to the ‘nth degree! When it comes to relationships, you’ll begin to put more energy on expressing your most vital self to a partner. Thankfully, you’ll also feel more appreciated than ever for simply being yourself. On Saturday, your mate will be an encouraging influence, supporting you as you cultivate one of your talents that you typically keep behind closed doors. Your partner already sees the best in you and now, you’ll agree.
Don’t discount the potential to intensify your love life this week by focusing on a humanitarian effort with your mate. It appears you’ll be busy in conversation with a group regarding such an endeavor on Wednesday. Your input will be valuable because you’ll create a plan to achieve a successful outcome out of everyone else’s high ideals. By Saturday, expect your lover to join in this effort once you discover that he or she shares the same passion to help others as you do.
If there was ever a week to talk to your partner about whatever it is you’ve been trying to sweep under the rug, this is it. Don’t feel anxious about initiating a difficult conversation, even if it means communicating about a subject you both try hard to avoid. Recognize that until you talk about this situation it’ll be an ugly thorn in your side, potentially diminishing what is a fantastic relationship otherwise. Have the talk, clear the air and then move on.
Now that Mars is in your partnership sector, you’re extremely motivated to stir the pot in relationship matters. You might initiate more arguments than usual, or you may enjoy being extra physical with your mate. Thankfully, on Tuesday you’ll enjoy the best, rather than the worst, of what Mars in the 7th House of Partnership offers. Mars will connect to Jupiter, the planet of expansion and abundance. You’ll have plenty of stamina to enjoy a new sexual or creative adventure with your lover. Good for you!

This week’s main event is a heady Solar Eclipse in Scorpio on Sunday, which will encourage you to leap into profound personal transformation. Scorpio is all about revealing yourself to someone close in the most vulnerable and soul-baring capacity. Between Mercury’s continued retrograde in Scorpio and this Eclipse, you’ll confront and hopefully eradicate at least one of your personal hang-ups in relationship. This will allow you to finally go “all in” with someone you love.
This week you can’t escape it: When it comes to love, you’ll need to confront your darker side. Those walls of self-protection you hold up to avoid being hurt are about to come crashing down all around you. This is a good thing. If you’ve been the one who gets all dressed up in a suit of armor before going on a date, then it’s time to dress down. In fact, it’s time to disrobe. Surrender those fears and dare to feel something real
If you’re not being up-front with your partner about what’s holding you back from falling head over heels in love, then the only person you’re really fooling is yourself. Now, more than ever, the universe wants you to confront the naked truth about romance, relationships and your requirements pertaining to them. It’s OK to revise your concepts around these matters now — in fact, it’s called for. What’s not OK is to keep trying to ignore what needs to happen: Transformation.
This week, trying too hard to control everything happening in your environment may leave little room for pleasure. Work may be all-consuming and you might also need to pay extra attention to your overall well-being. Still, there’s a nugget of gold available in your romantic life if you’re willing to mine for it. On Thursday, you’ll seize an intimate moment at home with a lover. Are you concerned about your sexual health? There isn’t necessarily anything to worry about, but it’s a good time to make an appointment with a healthcare professional. Take care of you.
Romance — or the lack thereof — will weigh heavily on your mind this week. If you feel as if you and your sweetheart have lost that loving feeling, this will be a good time to review potential explanations for why things have gone stale. An honest conversation may lead to you both making each other a priority once again. If single, you may struggle with pangs of loneliness or pessimism about love and your ability to “find the one.” It’s time to rewrite the script in your head.
Domestic distractions may challenge you so much this week that it takes your focus away from romantic pursuits. While it’s true you’ll have a lot going on at home, this will be the last week love planet Venus moves through the area of your chart that has to do with pleasure and romance. If you’re hoping to meet someone new and fall in love, there’s still time — but you must go out and mingle! Don’t expect the love of your life to come knocking on your door. Seize it!
Expect serious and potentially significant alterations in how you communicate this week. Thankfully, these changes symbolize opportunity that will help you convey your deepest desires in a way that no longer makes you feel threatened. Penetrating dialogue between you and someone close will only support deeper intimacy. On Thursday, you and a lover might reach new heights together in the bedroom. With Sunday’s Eclipse, you might be ready to speak up to your mate about what you need emotionally to enjoy a true partnership.
Compared to the stress of last month’s Lunar Eclipse in your partnership sector, this week’s Solar Eclipse might feel like a cakewalk. There won’t be any relationship red flags to look out for or monsters in your love closet to ferret out. What the cosmic climate will demand you reassess this week, however, is your self-worth profile. The old saying is true — if you can’t love yourself, then it’s impossible to love someone else. Where do you stand when it comes to self-love? If you’re not standing tall then an adjustment will be in order.
Be gentle with yourself this week, because Sunday’s Solar Eclipse in your sign might leave you feeling both rattled and energized. On one hand, you know it’s time to make a change in your personal life. On the other hand, the steps you’ll need to take to get there may seem daunting — even terrifying at times. Remember that shedding the skin of what no longer serves you is part of the growth process. You’ll have more to offer someone you love when you have the strength to reveal authenticity.
Keeping all of your relationship fears neatly tucked away out of site might seem like a clever move. The truth however, is that you’re only playing yourself for a fool if you continue to ignore them. Most of us have suffered heartbreak and trauma at some point, but the trick to overcoming a broken heart is to keep it broken open. This week you may have a breakthrough if you’re willing to talk about these feelings you try so hard to hide. A conversation with a therapist or trusted friend will work wonders.
It’s time to pay more attention to your social life — or lack thereof — and how it affects your love potential. Making new social contacts may be your key to inviting romantic prospects your way if single. The deeper meaning behind this week’s Solar Eclipse, however, is that it’ll challenge you to reconsider beliefs about your lovability. You don’t seem to have trouble giving love these days, but receiving love — truly being able to accept it — is another story. It’s time to make a change. You are lovable. Period.
With the ruler of your romance sector, Mercury, now in retrograde motion, this week may be more about dwelling on the past in terms of your love life than anything else. Thankfully, a powerful Solar Eclipse in Scorpio will help you face painful memories of love lost or any betrayal you may have endured that has left you scarred. If you want to let love in, it’s time to give yourself permission to release the grip any trauma has on your heart.
This week, you’re questioning everything you thought you knew about the world and your place in it. Not surprisingly, your ideals regarding love are also being challenged. To err is human, but you sometimes have trouble knowing the difference between a lover’s honest mistake versus an outright deception or lie. This is because you prefer to see the best in others and to love unconditionally. This week you may reexamine any overly naive approach in order to achieve healthier margins in intimate matters. A breakthrough is possible on Sunday.

I call to the Spirits of love and light
To help me make my outlook bright
Take away the gloom and doom
With the sweeping of my broom
Cleanse my soul of feelings dark
Where misery has left its mark
Shift my thoughts to patterns new
Within the cauldron’s witchy brew
Ease my heart and mend all hurt
To childlike innocence I revert
Greeting each new day with glee
Amid my magick’s mystery
Negative out and positive in
With this new attitude I begin
To live my life with love and light
And see the world with clearer sight
So Mote It Be
Love this day
Love this day and it will be good to you. Treasure this opportunity to experience life, and the experience will be beautiful.
The progress you seek does not always come in the ways you thought it would. Yet when you seek, and persist, and expect it, that progress does always come.
Don’t let yourself become too troubled by the troubles. Remind yourself to take it all in stride, and you will find great value and richness along the way.
Go forward with clear and positive intentions, seeking to make a beneficial difference for all. In whatever may happen, you will discover new ways to further your authentic purpose.
In its every aspect, life is predominately the way you consider it to be. Consider it to be unique, precious, miraculous, filled with opportunity and abundance, and give each moment of your reality a positive flavor.
Make the decision to love this day, this place, this moment, this special experience of life with the people around you. And there will be so very much to love.

Your heart may fill with wanderlust this week, thanks to love planet Venus moving into adventurous Sagittarius on Monday. You’ll be more inclined to take a leap of faith when it comes to romance now until November 5. Be careful, however, not to jump to fast into anything because your unguarded optimism might lead to disappointment. Venus will crash into Neptune on Thursday, creating an atmosphere that could leave you feeling blindsided, thanks to an open, over-trusting heart.
Sharing love with a like-minded soul will be especially important to you this week. Love planet Venus enters your 9th House of Intellectual and Spiritual Expansion on Monday. Until November 5, you and your mate will search for the greater meaning of life together — possibly through travel or study. On Tuesday, it might be difficult to communicate about an intimate matter, and if you feel pushed into a corner you’re likely to respond by shutting down altogether. Living in a romantic bubble of denial? On Thursday it might burst.
It’ll be easier for you to reveal your erotic side to your partner this week, thanks to Venus moving into your 8th House of Intimacy on Monday. You’ll be more willing to open up to your lover, body and soul, now until November 5. This trend might help nurture your relationship, however, a sober conversation or decision you need to make on Tuesday about the direction of your partnership may tempt you to put the walls right back up. With love these days, it’s one step forward, two steps back.
Expect greater relationship harmony starting on Monday and lasting until November 5. Venus will move through your 7th House of Partnerships, allowing you and your mate to see the best in one another. If you’re in a happy place with someone you’ve recently started to date, this cycle may lead you toward a greater commitment, such as an exclusive relationship, or even a possible engagement. On Thursday, you might feel as if your ideal partnership falls from its pedestal of perfection. This is not necessarily a bad thing — it’ll remind you that your relationship is real and not storybook fodder.
An office romance may soon heat up. While it might feel as if you’ve finally found someone to love, the quagmire about mixing business with pleasure may also have a chokehold on you. On Tuesday, you and your paramour may decide whether or not you’re ready to risk the potential fallout from exploring a relationship together. If you’re already in a relationship, it’s possible your mate will receive disappointing news about a work situation. Take heart — it’s temporary.
Love is in the air! Venus will move into your 5th House of Romance on Monday, and from then until November 5 you’ll enjoy magnificent potential to attract a new love interest your way. If you’re attached, it’s possible this energy will lead you and your mate to consider starting a family in the near future. One caveat this week: Keep love and money as separate as possible on Thursday. Venus will square off with Neptune, and you’re not likely to see Venusian ruled matters clearly.
Domestic and romantic harmony will go hand-in-hand this week. You and your partner might decide to move forward on a home decorating project, and if so you’re likely to share similar champagne tastes. Whether or not your budget can afford such extravagances, try to remain realistic as you move forward making these home improvements. On Thursday, you might feel a twinge of disappointment when it comes to your relationship and how it affects your family dynamic. Don’t fret, bliss will return by the weekend.
Expect communication between you and your mate to improve dramatically this week. Venus, the planet of love and harmony, will enter your 3rd House of Information on Monday, where she will remain until November 5. Not only will this improve your ability to speak from the heart, but you’ll also find that it’s easier to compromise if there’s a vital decision you and your love need to make together. On Thursday, you might discover that someone has a crush on you at the office. If so, you’ll feel flattered and confused. Now what?
As Venus enters your 2nd House of Money on Monday, you’ll notice a definite improvement in your financial situation, but there will be another, more subtle bonus you can certainly take to the bank. This has to do with your confidence and feelings of validation. Your partner will have a stronger ability to make you feel like a million bucks. Maybe you’re just more receptive to his or her compliments now, or maybe you’re actually getting the praise you’ve been missing out on for quite some time. Either way, soak it all in.
You’re beautiful and you know it! On Monday, Venus will enter Sagittarius, and until November 5 there’s no denying that you’re the fairest of them all. Use your powers of attraction wisely and you’ll have the potential to kiss a prince or princess. On Thursday, however, you may also discover that you’ve kissed a frog. A relative might try to warn you that you’re falling for the wrong one, but you’re not likely to listen. Think twice. Love is blind, but thankfully your family isn’t.
Romantic matters are likely to take a more private turn for you this week. Perhaps you just feel a stronger urge to take time away from the noise of your love life in order to consider the direction your relationship is heading. Or it’s possible you’ll need time to grieve a love that was lost — or one that was never reciprocated. Either way, be gentle with yourself and allow the feelings you’ve tried to keep buried to surface. That’s the only way to heal.
Friendship is a prerequisite to love in your eyes, and this week that will become even more of a requirement. Thankfully, you’ll feel especially connected to someone you’re already partnered up with. In fact, you may discover that exploring a mutual interest together adds extra sparks to your love fest. Consider joining a new club or pursuing a mutual aspiration together. If single, you might meet someone new on the Internet or through a friend’s introduction. The affinity you feel will be uncanny. Love is grand, but when your lover is also your BFF you’ve got it made.
When it comes to love, you might feel a stronger urge to be with someone you can respect and admire. Venus will enter your 10th House of Status on Monday, and you’ll be more conscious of this desire until November 5. It’s natural to want to be with someone who elevates you, however, on Thursday, if you discover your sweetheart isn’t all he or she appears to be, you may decide to end things. If you remain in an unhealthy relationship because of appearances, you’re in for a rude awakening. The only person you’ll fool is yourself.
Romantic matters may run from hot to cold this week, thanks to two very different cycles at play. First, Venus will be at a gorgeous trine to Jupiter on Thursday, allowing love to flow in the most open, sensitive way. Flattery and lavish gifts might be par for the course! If you’re planning to wine and dine anyone, Thursday will certainly be the day to do it! By the weekend, however, love becomes rocky as Venus and Mars lock horns in a testy square. Pride and power struggles take over and sweet sentiments might be lost amidst a clash of egos. Pick your battles and remember: Every rose has its thorn.
You might work so hard talking up your lover to relatives this week that you fail to take an honest look at any holes in your relationship. On Thursday, you’ll certainly see the best in your mate. You might even talk about sharing household expenses or purchasing a home together down the road if you don’t already live together. On Saturday, however, all of your idealism may go out the window when you’re likely to become frustrated with the way in which your lover handles finances. There could be a stalemate.
With Venus in your 7th House of Intimate Partnerships until October 7, you have a special focus on love that will attract greater harmony and personal happiness. You’ll notice this trend on Thursday, when Venus will embrace Jupiter, the planet of abundance, now in your 3rd House of Communication. Expressing your love and devotion to someone close has never been easier. Remember your heartfelt words, however, because by Saturday you might experience a test. Venus will rub elbows with Mars in your 4th House of Home and Family Life. A domestic squabble may put a damper on romance.
This week you may find it easy to wear your heart on your sleeve. The Moon will be in Gemini and your 1st House of Identity on Tuesday and Wednesday. This cosmic lineup will allow you to express emotions easily — which may bring a welcome change of pace to your usual style of logic first. On Thursday, Venus will be at a brilliant trine to Jupiter, helping to weave a magnetic spell between you and someone at the office. Will you succumb? Or will you try to ignore those butterflies in your stomach?
Romance seems to flow effortlessly for you these days. With Venus in your 5th House of True Love until October 7, you certainly have an edge when it comes to attracting someone your way. On Thursday, you may feel as if you’ve won the cosmic jackpot of love. Venus will be at a perfect trine to Jupiter, now in your sign. Delicious, sentimental, emotionally available amour will be yours for the taking. Whipped cream optional. On Saturday, however, a wrinkle in your romantic bliss might come up if you lose sight of a financial obligation in order to spend big and impress your lover. Think twice.
With Venus in your 4th House of Home and Family Life, you’re more interested in making sure your lover fits in with your security needs these days. This might mean nesting at home together quietly, or it might have more to do with testing the waters to ensure that your sweetheart fits in with your clan. If he or she does, you’ll be golden; but if there’s any conflict, you might feel stuck in the middle. Ask yourself: Who defines your true state of security? Regardless of your relationship status, that power should belong to no one else but you.
Whether you’re single or attached, your social life may be the key to romantic happiness this week. On Thursday, Venus, in your 3rd House of Communication, will be at a perfect trine to Jupiter, in your 11th House of Social Networking. You might enjoy a group activity, party or other event with your lover. You may also join a few friends at a social gathering and meet someone who stimulates your mind and heart! On Saturday, remain cautious with the words you choose. An acerbic remark to someone close might sting far more than intended.
Your self-worth is tied to partnership under ordinary circumstances, but this week you may feel as if this is especially true. On Saturday, Venus, now in your 2nd House of Possessions, will be at a tense square to Mars, the ruler of your partnership sector. You might feel as if your partner doesn’t value you as much as they should, and if so this might lead to an angry confrontation. Alternatively, you may try to sweep your feelings under the rug in an attempt to avoid conflict. That approach will only backfire.
With Venus still moving through your 1st House of Self until October 7, you’ll continue to enjoy a certain kind of sex appeal. On Thursday, you may find that you attract someone your way who is from a background quite unlike your own. This may be cultural, religious or educational. Regardless, you’ll feel enamored because of the differences. On Saturday, as Venus squares off with Mars, you might feel frustrated over having to choose between having fun versus taking care of a professional obligation. Do the right thing.
This will be an ideal week to carve out time for yourself in order to consider a decision in your personal life. On Thursday, Venus, now in your 12th House of Privacy, will be at a perfect angle to Jupiter, your ruler. You’ll find a way to untangle romantic knots before you get caught up in them. Will you take your own advice? The test will be on Saturday, as Venus and Mars square off. Don’t be your own worst enemy when it comes to love. If things get sticky, hold on to your moral high ground.
The week may start out looking bright when it comes to blending your social and romantic life. However, you’ll want to remain cautious by the weekend. On Thursday, Venus and Jupiter will be at a friendly angle, allowing your partner to be generous and gracious in the company of your pals. On Saturday, though, there will be a swift change as Venus squares off with Mars in your 8th House of Shared Resources. A friend might overstep his or her boundaries and meddle in your finances. Your partner will not be pleased.
This week — especially on Tuesday and Wednesday — your emotional focus will certainly be on romance. That’s because the Moon will be in your 5th House of True Love, encouraging you to seek pleasure and joy with someone special. But things may get dicey on Saturday if you’re in a relationship. You’ll want to impress the boss with your work on a project, so you might decide to bring work home for the weekend. Instead of receiving support from your mate, however, you’re more likely to get an attitude.
On Thursday, you and your lover may decide to book that exotic vacation you’ve been talking about taking together. There will be plenty of romantic energy and wanderlust in the air for you, thanks to the Moon moving through your 5th House from Thursday afternoon through Saturday. In addition, Venus — now in your 9th House of Long Distance Travel — will be at a magnificent trine to Jupiter, now in your 5th House of True Love. Don’t allow a hiccup with your work schedule dampen your mood on Saturday. Make plans — and stick with them!
