Earlier this week there was a beautiful connection between the “Cosmic Lovers” that, lucky for you, is still in effect this weekend! Venus, the planet of love and connectedness, and Mars, the planet of motivation, teamed up in a lovely trine that helps put love into action. Under this influence it’s easier to get what you want without much pressure. Both Venus and Mars are also schmoozing with Neptune this weekend, helping to make hearts desires come true and bringing exciting changes to the romance front. If you’re single and seeking a potential partner, act on all this energy! Especially with the Moon in Aries all weekend, you’ve got the confidence you need to make the first move, and the support of the universe to help it go smoothly. If you’re already attached, you can also get a big boost from these romantic vibes… Plan a date night with your lover to reignite the fires. With both Venus and Mars are in contented Earth signs now, you don’t have to do anything extravagant. Keep it simple and practical, like a picnic in the park or an indulgent candlelit dinner at home.
By Sunday it feels like the weekend is coming to a close, but no, some brand-new energy is just revving up! Early Sunday morning Mercury Retrograde finally ends, which means communication starts to get back to normal and misunderstandings are less likely to occur between you and your loved ones. What’s more, on the same day there will be a New Moon in Aries, sitting with the rebel-rouser Uranus. Something both the sign of Aries and the planet Uranus have in common is individuality. When it comes to relationships, all too often we change parts of ourselves to get along with or impress others. This New Moon is a wake-up call that helps you realize you don’t need to hold back or edit yourself in order to please anyone else. Use this time to consider how can you let your true self thrive, without fear of turning off others or appearing selfish. Aries wants you to be brave and Uranus wants you to do things that liberate you. Have the courage to be you!
