A Quick Overview Of Your Love Horoscopes for August 2015

 August 2015 Love Horoscope

Romance in retrograde

By Maria DeSimone

 

Matters of the heart will be top priority for just about everyone this month. That’s because love planet Venus will continue to travel retrograde in Leo (until September 6). As a result, you can expect to continue the process of revising what you need in relationship in order to feel special and maximize your joy. This will also be a month to start making changes in order to achieve exactly what will bring you the most pleasure.

Although Venus will be retrograde and you might not be able to get everything you want in love, Mars will enter Leo (the same sign as Venus) on August 8. He’ll remain there until September 24, allowing you to move towards what makes you happiest in life and love. A bright New Moon on August 14 in Leo, will add even more potential to the mix. During the second half of August, you’ll want to plant seeds in your garden of love and water them diligently. With all of this incredible energy at work for you, next month something magical is sure to bloom.

2015 Summer Love Horoscopes

Learning lessons in love

This summer starts off with a heavy dose of passionate sunshine but just when you think you’re home free things may start to take a turn. Venus, the planet of love and relationships, is due for her retrograde phase and it’ll take place between July 25 and September 6. As a result, for most of the summer it’ll be more about learning lessons in love than enjoying hot and heavy endless summer nights. Try not to see this as a total downer though. In fact, there will be a golden opportunity to take stock of where you are along your personal romantic journey and appreciate it in a whole new light. Try not to focus exclusively on how far you have yet to travel, but also acknowledge how far you’ve come. And with Venus retrograde in Leo remember the ultimate lesson she is trying to teach all of us: self-love. Read more about what this summer has in store for your love potential by checking out your sign’s forecast!

Aries Horoscope (March 21 – April 19)

You, more than any other sign, will likely look back at this summer and realize pivotal developments occurred in your love life — the kind that changes the landscape of it forever. Everything looks as happy as can be as the summer kicks off. Both Venus and Jupiter — the two beneficial planets — will move together through your 5th House of True Love and Pleasure. Jupiter leaves on August 11 but Venus will hang around for quite some time. Pay attention to events near June 29 when Venus connects perfectly to Uranus, now in your sign. A happy, unexpected development in love can take you to new heights.

Things begin to turn on June 14 however when Venus squares off with Saturn. Perhaps you’re struggling in a romantic relationship that you prefer to keep lighthearted and fun, while your lover wants something deeper. Suddenly the party appears to be over and the two of you will need to figure out if this is a summer fling or something more substantial.

No matter what’s happening in your love life, you’ll have plenty of time to figure things out once Venus moves retrograde back into your 5th house on July 31. Until September 6, you will be forced to re-assess your love life situation as well as your capacity to give love to someone. If opening your heart has been difficult this retrograde, it will hurt just enough to challenge you to overcome what is holding you back the most in the love department. Ready or not, here it comes. Are you strong enough to love with all you’ve got? The Universe thinks so. Mars will be moving into Leo and your 5th house between August 8 and September 24, giving you the heart of a warrior.

Taurus Horoscope (April 20 – May 20)

On July 18, love planet Venus will be making a short appearance in your true love sector. You might be convinced a grand romance is about to get off the ground but the truth is, there’s not enough steam to get anything moving in the direction you’d like. The problem is that Venus will enter your romance sector and immediately begin slowing down, preparing to turn retrograde on July 25. Although it seems as if you have some type of action potential in the romance department, you may quickly realize that your attention needs to remain focused on a domestic situation. A relative might need your support as he or she struggles to resolve a problem that you thought was resolved. This situation will likely take up so much energy that until Venus turns direct on September 6, matters of the heart will not be a priority at all.

Don’t worry about your summer turning into a major dud as far as romance goes. See this instead as a vital cycle you need to go through to fix a major family situation once and for all so that after September 6, you can once again focus on your love life. The opportunity won’t be lost — and you’ll see this for yourself after September 13 when a gorgeous Solar Eclipse lights up your true love sector. By then, lucky Jupiter will also be in the same part of your chart (he enters your 5th house on August 11 and you just might experience the greatest love of your life!

Gemini Horoscope (May 21 – June 20)

This summer will have some bright spots as well as potentially cloudy weather when it comes to romance. The good news is that from the start of the summer until July 18, Venus will move direct in your 3rd House of Communication. You’ll have a gorgeous opportunity to get to know someone special through stimulating conversations that last until the wee hours of the morning.

The problem is that Venus, which rules your true love sector, will turn retrograde on July 25 and will not turn direct until September 6. This is like throwing a wet blanket over the flames of fire that any summer romance has to offer. You might have trouble making up your mind when it comes to any important decision you and your partner must make together. If you’re talking about deepening the relationship or making any kind of commitment on paper, this will be a time of heavy revisions and second guessing. Do your best not to make final decisions on anything that involves you and your sweetie signing contracts together.

Then, from September 17 until early fall, Mercury will turn retrograde right in your true love sector. You might end up communicating with an ex and wondering whether or not the two of you should give things a second chance. This will also make it difficult for you and your partner to agree on a vital decision that involves one of your children if you have any together. Perhaps the best course of action for you this summer is to go with the flow. When it comes to love, take things as they are and live in the moment. But don’t ignore the lessons.

Cancer Horoscope (June 21 – July 22)

For the better part of the summer you’ll feel sexier than ever! On June 24 until August 8, Mars, the planet of assertive energy and the planet ruling libido, will move through your sign. This is a once in two year event, so don’t waste its amazing potential. For starters, anything you initiate during this time will likely succeed since you’ll have unparalleled stamina and confidence. Your sexual energy will be high and it’s likely that you’ll put out vibes to someone you’re attracted to without even realizing it. The good news is that it’ll be almost impossible to resist you during this time. So if there’s someone you have your eye on go ahead and make that first move!

There are two “ouch” days when it comes to love that you’ll want to make note of. This will be especially difficult if you’re single or newly dating someone. On July 14 and again on August 4, Venus will square off with Saturn. Loneliness or disappointment in matters of the heart are possible.

If you’re in a committed relationship, pay attention to events that happen near the Full Moon on July 1. It’ll fall in your partnership sector and things between you and your mate are likely to be extra emotionally charged. If you and your love are at a breaking point as a couple this might be a time you decide to spend time apart in order to think things through. Or, you may end the relationship altogether. Either way, this Full Moon signals a vital turning point between you and your partner.

Fortunately, a New Moon in your sign on July 15 will help infuse you with even more optimism for a brighter tomorrow. If you and your partner have decided to stick it out, this lunation will help clean the slate and allow you to begin anew in life and love. Yes!

Leo Horoscope (July 23 – Aug. 22)

Make the most of early summer Leo because the Universe has a major lesson in store for you when it comes to matters of the heart. But first, the good news. Until July 18, love planet Venus will continue moving direct in your sign making you the “fairest of them all.” Your magnetism will be irresistible and you may also decide that it’s time to spruce up your appearance. Go ahead — use this time to strut your stuff and get noticed!

Once July 31 hits, everything takes on a different tone. Venus will have gone retrograde and on this day she’ll backpedal into your sign again, where she will remain in retrograde motion until September 6. During this time, you might second guess everything you thought you knew as it relates to partnership and romantic matters. You might have a major lesson that involves learning more about what you have to offer a person in a relationship that isn’t so much on the outside but rather, within.

If you’re trying to buy love, that tactic will likely blow up in your face now, leaving you struggling with feelings of worthlessness. You’re meant to learn that you are good enough to love and be loved without all of the fanfare, bells and whistles. This may not be an easy lesson but if you’re able to work through it you might find on the other side an opportunity for true, meaningful love. Mars enters your sign on August 8 and remains there until September 24, giving you the courage to pursue love in a way you might have been too afraid to in the past.

Virgo Horoscope (Aug. 23 – Sept. 22)

Are you struggling with a romantic relationship that, for one reason or another, you feel must be kept under wraps? If you’re involved in a secret affair or, if you’re pining away for someone you know you can’t truly be with, then this summer has a few lessons in store. On July 25, love planet Venus turns retrograde in your sign and on July 31, she’ll slide back into Leo and your 12th House of “All That’s Hidden.” Until September 6, you might have a bit of soul searching to do connected to a romantic relationship that’s either unhealthy to be in or more of a fantasy than reality. If you’re caught up in a situation like this, it’s time to ask yourself why you think it’s good enough for you. Don’t you deserve a relationship that has substance? A relationship that you can shout out to the world you’re actually in?

Perhaps there’s a deeper issue at work that you’ll need to muddle through. Maybe, your fear of love and of being hurt in love is so overwhelming that you put yourself in a position where you are always loving someone from a safe enough distance, thinking you’re protecting your heart. You’re only fooling yourself if you think that’s the case and this summer, you’ll need to face these issues head on. The good news is that a Solar Eclipse in Virgo on September 13 will be your personal fresh start in all areas — including relationships.

Libra Horoscope (Sept. 23 – Oct. 22)

The summer will kick off with plenty of thrilling potential for romance and pleasure! Social opportunities will be abundant. If you’re single, you’ll have an excellent chance to meet someone special at a party, or other fun event. Pay attention to June 29 for sparks to fly if you’re in a relationship. On that day, love planet Venus will be at a gorgeous angle to the electrifying Uranus. Make the most of this stimulating aspect and dare to do something with your partner that takes both of you out of your comfort zone.

Until July 18, you’ll enjoy opportunities to make a romantic connection with someone through your social life. Pay close attention to developments on July 1, when Venus and Jupiter embrace.  A friend may offer to set you up with someone and it’s also possible that you’ll entertain the prospect of going from friends to lovers with a close pal. If you do make a move in this direction however, expect some re-adjustments between July 31 and September 6 when Venus moves retrograde through your friendship sector. Another possibility, is that one of your friends will meddle with your love life so much that it threatens to damage it. If a situation like this arises you might end up breaking up with your friend.

Mercury will also retrograde in your sign as the summer draws to a close. After September 17, be especially careful how you communicate to your partner. Messages can easily be misconstrued.

Scorpio Horoscope (Oct. 23 – Nov. 21)

With Saturn moving through the final degrees of your sign until September 17, getting things right in the relationship department has a certain sense of urgency. You know that time is running out and if things have been rocky between you and your partner, something must change this summer or else the relationship may no longer be salvageable. A specific problem that you might have with your mate, is feeling a lack of support as you pursue a professional goal or re-evaluate your career prospects entirely. He or she might not be doing much to boost your ego during a time when it may be quite fragile. Insecurities about your future career path might prompt you to put up higher walls — walls that only frustrate your partner even more. Decisions need to happen near July 14 and again on August 5 when Venus squares off with Saturn. You might be in a position where you have to deal with something professionally out of financial necessity. Resentment in your relationship may continue to build throughout the summer if you aren’t able to take a step back and untangle the knot that somehow complicated your love life.

If single, a Full Moon on August 29 might bring feelings for someone special to a new level of awareness. It’s possible that a romance could blossom once you acknowledge your spiritual connection with this person.

Sagittarius Horoscope (Nov. 22 – Dec. 21)

From June 24 until August 8 you may feel a strong urge to go deeper in your relationship — both physically and psychologically. You and your partner might have a great connection but intimacy is a delicate process that continues to unfold over time. This summer, it’s likely that you will make it a priority to go where you have not dared go before. This might also have to do with a drive to explore a more taboo or erotic side of your sexuality with your partner. If you’ve feared doing this in the past, thinking it would scare off your mate, now you may change your mind. One thing is certain — your sex life will have a significant opportunity for enrichment!

Pay attention to romantic opportunity on June 29 and again on August 19. If single, it’s possible that someone who is not your usual type will completely enthrall you. Also, on July 1, a delicious love connection is possible as you embark on a new adventure that will expand your horizons. If you miss the boat on July 1, you’ll have another opportunity on August 4. After September 17, don’t bother talking to your friends about your love life. They might only offer unwanted, confusing advice.

Capricorn Horoscope (Dec. 22 – Jan. 19)

If you’re married or in a committed relationship, things are about to heat up this summer! On June 24 and until August 8, Mars will move through your partnership sector. This event only happens once every two years and during this time you’ll be motivated to spice things up in your love life. There’s a good chance that you’ll stir the pot more and initiate arguments. It’s also possible that you’ll come across as more selfish during this time which may infuriate your partner.  Still, the good news is that if there’s anything you and your partner need to work through it will not be swept under the rug. And the makeup sex? Off the charts! A New Moon in the same part of your chart on July 15 will stimulate a fresh start in your relationship. Or, if you’re dating someone, it’s possible you’ll decide to make it exclusive.

On July 8, you’ll have a rare and incredible capacity to be on the same page spiritually, intellectually and physically with your mate. Don’t waste it! Pay close attention to Venus as she retrogrades through your 8th House of Joint Finances between July 31 and September 6. It’s possible that you and your partner will have to re-evaluate money matters that have to do with sharing resources, debt or investments. Don’t make new investments together during this time and if you’re newly dating someone wait until this phase is over before you make the decision to move in together or start sharing bills.

Aquarius Horoscope (Jan. 20 – Feb. 18)

It’s time to seriously re-evaluate where you are in your marriage or committed relationship and to patch up any holes there might be in your union. Also, if you’re dating someone you might have second thoughts (or cold feet) about whether or not you should commit. Love planet Venus will turn retrograde on July 25 and between July 31 and September 6, she’ll move retrograde in your 7th House of Partnership. This is a significant opportunity to figure out whether or not you’re going through the motions in a relationship or if you’re truly connected with your mate on a heart level.

It’s possible that you’ll experience a test during this time that leaves you wondering just how strong your bond is. The thing to remember, is that if the two of you truly have love and mutual respect for one another you will not only get through this time, but you will come out of it stronger than ever. Remember, you’ll also have Jupiter continuing to help ameliorate any potential difficulties in this area of your life — and that is true until August 11. Use this to your advantage. You’ll have both of the lucky planets in the zodiac supporting your relationship potential! Even if Venus is retrograde it doesn’t have to symbolize trouble. It may actually symbolize the resolution of a situation that the two of you didn’t know how to fix in the past. August 14 is a gorgeous new beginning for you in your relationship. Also, be sure to take advantage of Venus and Jupiter embracing in your partnership sector on July 1 and again on August 4. Love can and will conquer all!

Pisces Horoscope (Feb. 19 – March 20)

This will most certainly be an eventful summer for you when it comes to love and relationships. First, whether you’re single or attached, get ready for passion! Mars, the planet of assertiveness, will enter your 5th House of Romance and Pleasure on June 24. He remains there until August 8 and during this time your number one priority will be having FUN! Your sex life will become much more eventful. If you’re partnered up, expect to have much more fun in bed. If single, there will be no shortage of opportunity to “get your groove back.” A New Moon in your true love sector on July 15 might bring someone special into your life if you are currently unattached. Make the most of social opportunities!

The major headline news for you however, will happen on August 11. That’s when Jupiter, the planet of gifts and blessings, will enter your 7th House of Partnership for the first time in twelve years! For the next year, you will enjoy a special dose of protection and happiness potential in your relationship. If things are already going well between you and your partner you can expect them to get even better. You might decide to move in with someone, get engaged or even marry under this influence. If, however, you’re not in a good place in your relationship, this transit won’t heal what is already broken. On a positive note, if a relationship ends during this time it will most likely end peacefully. Pay attention to the Solar Eclipse in your 7th house on September 13. A whole new world might open up for you in your relationship. Wow!

June 2015 Love Horoscope

The greater meaning

By Maria DeSimone


Your views on the greater meaning of life will come into focus near the Full Moon on June 2 and along with that you may begin to wonder if your love shares your most core beliefs. On certain matters, it’ll be ok to have a difference of opinion but if it’s about something deeply meaningful you may second guess your long term compatibility. Be honest. The good news is that with some real communication, the two of you have every possibility of sharing the joys of couple hood even if you have opposite views on religion, spirituality or some other major philosophy. Again, the key is communication — something you’re both more than capable of after Mercury turns direct on June 11.

On June 5, love planet Venus enters Leo where she’ll remain until July 18. Pay close attention to what begins to happen in your love life — especially near the end of this cycle. Venus will turn retrograde in July and by August she will be back into Leo. She’ll ultimately travel back 14 degrees of Leo before turning direct. It is critically important to notice what develops in your love life starting June 21. When Venus reaches this degree she will later turn direct at after her retrograde phase is complete. Developments that occur starting the second half of this month into next month, will give clues as to what you and your sweetheart may have to work on during the impending Venus retrograde cycle.

Having said this, during most of June, matters of the heart should be a joyful combination of stable and invigorating. Look to June 6 for heartwarming security in romance. If single, pay attention to June 29, Venus will trine Uranus and someone special might sweep you off your feet.

Weekly Astrology: June 1 – 7, 2015

Going above and beyond

It’s a week to open your mind, your heart, and your faith! Things are happening on a grand scale now … are you ready?

Tuesday, June 2: Full Moon in Sagittarius

Are you willing to ask the big questions in life, even if you don’t find an answer? That’s the theme of Tuesday’s Full Moon in Sagittarius. Remember that in your life it’s the journey that matters, not the destination. Still, your internal GPS might be slightly confused thanks to this Full Moon being square Neptune and opposite Mercury, now in retrograde. Old belief systems and modes of thinking are likely to come up for review, and it’ll be time to discard what’s no longer working in your reality.

Friday, June 5: Venus enters Leo; Mars in Gemini sextile Jupiter

On Friday, love planet Venus enters Leo. Venus in Leo promises romance on a grand scale so now, you’ll settle for nothing less than lavish expressions of love. Mars will be at a supportive sextile to Jupiter on the same day giving you the ability to put your optimism to work for you. This will definitely be a sexy day!

Saturday, June 6: Venus trine Saturn

On Saturday the tone goes from carefree romance to relationship substance. Venus will trine Saturn and if you’re attached, you’ll feel quite secure in your union. Financially, a cautious gamble looks like it’ll pay off, and a creative gift put into practice can be financially profitable for a long time to come.

Your Weekly Love Horoscopes

May 11th, 2015

by Maria DeSimone

Are you ready for some high quality cerebral stimulation? Well, ready or not, here it comes! On Monday, Mars will enter Gemini where he remains until June 24. During these next few weeks the fastest way to turn you on will be through your MIND. That’s right, intellectual attraction will be of prime importance, so if your lover can’t keep your interest during a conversation, the last place you’ll want to be with him or her is in the bedroom. Then on Saturday, love planet Venus will be at a gorgeous angle to Neptune. This is a five star day for romance — one where you’ll be certain that fairy-tales do come true. Enjoy your happy ending!

 

Aries Horoscope
Aries Horoscope (Mar 21 – Apr 19)

You might feel an undeniable attraction to one of your neighbors. He or she might have only recently moved into your neighborhood and if so, you’ll have the perfect excuse to introduce yourself as the welcoming committee. Go ahead — there’s every indication that you’ll end up talking for hours. If you’re in a relationship, then you and your sweetie can expect an extra sweet day together on Saturday. You might do nothing special, but it won’t matter — you’ll feel especially spiritually connected.

 

Taurus Horoscope
Taurus Horoscope (Apr 20 – May 20)

A double date with one of your friends this week will go amazingly well. Or, if you are at a party or other social event, you could meet someone who literally puts you in a trance right from “Hello.” Venus, now in your message sector, will be at a gorgeous angle to dreamy Neptune on Saturday. This will affect all conversations with your lover in the most positive way — you’ll truly be on the same wavelength. A spiritual and mental connection — what more could you ask for?

 

Gemini Horoscope
Gemini Horoscope (May 21 – Jun 20)

Congratulations — you just became the sexiest sign in the zodiac! Mars, the planet of motivation and libido, will enter Gemini on Monday and remains in your sign until June 24. During this time, you’ll have an exceptional level of stamina and courage to go after anything you want. You won’t take “no” for an answer, and this will help you succeed wildly. Although you might feel a bit of opposition from your partner on Friday as you start something new, don’t be deterred … you’ve got this.

 

Cancer Horoscope
Cancer Horoscope (June 21 – Jul 22)

Don’t be too hard on yourself if you feel as though you’ve lost your sex drive. You might need to spend more time taking care of your emotional or physical health in order to get your sexy back. Consider that a low libido is often a symptom of something else that’s going on. It may be hormonal but it could just as easily be emotional. Talk to your doctor and figure out options together. After June 24, you’ll be raring to go again!

 

Leo Horoscope
Leo Horoscope (Jul 23 – Aug 22)

If you’re considering a “friends with benefits” situation, you might want to wait another couple of weeks before initiating it. Overall, with Mars moving into your friendship sector, there is a good indication that you and a pal will share extraordinary mutual chemistry. The problem however, is that on Friday, Mars will oppose Saturn and there will be circumstances beyond your control that may put the kibosh on any plans for a good time. Hang in there!

 

Virgo Horoscope
Virgo Horoscope (Aug 23 – Sep 22)

This weekend you will have serious romantic potential. Make plans as early as possible to enjoy a dreamy date night on Saturday with your mate. Attend a movie, art show or concert. Or, do something that arouses your spiritual and compassionate side together, such as attending a charitable event. There will be a feeling of unity that is simply unbreakable between the two of you. Together, you’ll be the personification of unconditional love.

 

Libra Horoscope
Libra Horoscope (Sep 23 – Oct 22)

Overall, this might be an uneventful week when it comes to romantic potential. You’ll derive much more pleasure if you focus on career prospects. That’s because a professional dream can materialize, much to your delight. If, however, your sweetheart is connected to your work, then you can expect matters of the heart to have more of a presence. In this instance, your soul mate will add incredible support as you pursue your aspiration.

 

Scorpio Horoscope
Scorpio Horoscope (Oct 23 – Nov 21)

Your erotic side will become even stronger than it usually is. The difference, however, is that you won’t be so caught up in keeping this part of you under wraps. In fact, until June 24, it will become a priority to get your relationship needs met — both physical and psychological. In other news, you might have a financial standoff with your partner on Friday, but things will get resolved by Saturday. You’ll be sure by then that love can conquer all.

 

Sagittarius Horoscope
Sagittarius Horoscope (Nov 22 – Dec 21)

You might become more argumentative with your partner than usual. In fact, there could be an ugly standoff between the two of you on Friday that results in a frustrated impasse. Your partner might react in a fiery way at your attempt to control a situation. In your eyes, you’re simply trying to contain things and make a plan, but in your partner’s eyes, you’re bursting his or her bubble. Talk it out.

 

Capricorn Horoscope
Capricorn Horoscope (Dec 22 – Jan 19)

You might be on a relationship high this weekend — and you should be. On Saturday, Venus, now in your relationship sector, will be at a perfect angle to Neptune, now in your 3rd House of Communication. A conversation with your partner about your dreams can make you feel extra hopeful about their coming true. That’s because your mate will make it clear that no matter what, he or she has your back. Yes!

You’re about to become too hot to handle! On Monday, sexy Mars will enter your 5th House of Romance and Pleasure, where he’ll remain until June 24. During this once-in-two-year transit, you can expect to have more fun than you have in quite some time. You’ll prioritize sexual delights and might enjoy physical escapades to the hilt. The only exception to this will be on Friday, when a friend may try to sabotage your plans. He or she might be jealous.

 

Pisces Horoscope
Pisces Horoscope (Feb 19 – Mar 20)

You have every indication of a glittering romantic weekend, but first you may have to contend with a frustrating situation at home. You may become caught up in a fight between relatives and if so, you won’t enjoy being in the middle. Do your best to either remain neutral or help your family hash it out so everyone can clear the air and move on. By Saturday, it’s all about love and you don’t want anything to get in the way of your fairytale happy ending.

Venus in Cancer

Romance turns sweet with the love planet in cozy Cancer

Our love lives have been light and carefree — but also fairly non-committal — since love planet Venus moved into Gemini, but finally romance is about to get sweeter.

That’s because Venus moves into caring Cancer on May 7, 2015, to touch hearts in a much more sentimental way. Get your personal Big Picture Love Forecast to see how this will affect your own love life!

Venus is the planet that rules beauty and affection, and Cancer is the most nurturing zodiac sign, so this transit is all about taking care of our closest romantic relationships and putting our partners first. Oh right, and lots of hugs.

While Venus was in Gemini until June 5, 2015, we were more likely to go out on the town and flirt, but with Venus in Cancer it’s much more intimate. We’ll want to stay at home and bond, cuddle and kiss and talk about our feelings. Yes, men, even you!

This is a great time for building up relationships, so if your love life has been stalled or if you’ve been dating a commitment-phobe, things may take a turn for the better now.

The only downside to Venus in Cancer is that sometimes we are so sensitive about matters of the heart that our feelings get hurt easily. Cancer’s self-protective nature is to withdraw, withhold, hide or pout when hurt, so you may need to watch for such behavior from your partner now.

But for the most part this is a sweet time that’s rich with feeling, to be spent gazing into someone’s eyes and saying “I love you” without using words.

Ah, Why not? Let’s See What the Planets Have In Store During The Week of 11 – 17

 

Weekly Astrology: May 11-17, 2014

All the planets are coming out to play!

Maria DeSimoneMaria DeSimone on the topics of Venus, Scorpio, moon, full moon, astrology

The sky is so busy this week you might not know which energy is affecting you or when. Thankfully, this handy-dandy overview should help you keep those planets straight.

 

Mars is still traveling retrograde in Libra, and Venus is now in fiery Aries. There may be tension in your love life because you want what you want, thanks to Venus, but you can’t seem to get it because of Mars.

On the same day, Mercury will square off with Neptune. This is the most significant red flag aspect for communication matters. Information is nebulous, at best, and deceptive at worst. Your mind is prone to fantasy and idealization, and you might want to believe in something so much that you ignore the whispers of your rational mind. Avoid signing contracts or making major decisions near this day!

Monday, May 12: Mercury in Gemini trine Mars Retrograde in Libra

Communication energy lightens up on Monday, when Mercury moves to trine Mars. You’ll think quickly and be ready to act on your thoughts, but this aspect is too close to the tail of that fuzzy Mercury-Neptune square. Resist the temptation and wait until later in the week.

Wednesday, May 14: Full Moon in Scorpio and Venus in Aries square Pluto in Capricorn

Wednesday may bring a day of emotional reckoning. An emotionally severe Full Moon in Scorpio will link up closely to karmic Saturn. Letting go of a deep dark secret or personal demon is called for, but Saturn demands you make sure you’ve learned the lesson you are meant to learn  relating to this situation first. Emotions will be intense, that’s for sure!

On the same day, Venus will square off with Pluto, the planet of power and control. Perhaps you need to let go of one of your more obsessive love tendencies so it will no longer eat you alive? Or, if there are unsavory financial happenings in your life, it’s possible you’ll have to pay the piper now.

Thursday, May 15: Mercury sextile Venus and Uranus, and Venus conjunct Uranus

Thursday is the best day of the week, by far. Mercury will be well-behaved, as he’ll link up to Venus and Uranus in a favorable way. Your decisions will be revolutionary, but gracefully executed. Also, love planet Venus will connect to Uranus. Romance should sizzle! On Sunday, cosmic lovers Venus and Mars will oppose one another.

 

Your Love Horoscopes for the Week of April 28th

After a month of tension at every turn, you might breathe a sigh of relief to know there will be much friendlier energy in the cosmic sky this week. On Tuesday, a Solar Eclipse in Taurus will remind you how much you enjoy the physical trappings of love. Explore a new beginning with your mate that relates to one or all of the five senses. Supportive communication links between Mercury, Pluto and Jupiter on Tuesday and Wednesday will make it easy to ask for what you crave. Then, on Friday, love planet Venus enters Aries, where she’ll remain until May 28. Expect a hot pursuit!

You’ll receive exceptional support and encouragement from your lover during this time as it relates to you cultivating your talents. How wonderful!

Your Love Horoscopes for the Week of April 21

Love can be downright explosive this week. On Monday, we’ll experience yet another exact hit of the now infamous Uranus-Pluto square. This rare alignment is cause for upheaval in many areas of life, and for some it’ll go straight to the heart. In addition, another rare lineup between the planets Mars, Jupiter, Uranus and Pluto will lead to massive pressure and change for the Cardinal signs (Aries, Cancer, Libra and Capricorn). This Grand Square will be especially tense for the love lives of Cardinal signs, but for others Friday’s beautiful link between Venus and Saturn might emphasize the security in your relationship. Where do you fall on the love spectrum this week? Read on…

 

Aries Horoscope
Aries Horoscope (Mar 21 – Apr 19)

Love is not exactly easy for you these days, Aries. You’re in a major process of deciding what’s worth fighting for in many areas of your life. When it comes to relationships, you might be ready to wave the white flag if you haven’t already done so. An attitude of “Whatever is meant to be will be” might actually do you some good this week. You’re used to grabbing life by the horns and making things happen, but lately that approach isn’t getting you far. Don’t instigate a partner this week; lay low and see what happens.

 

Taurus Horoscope
Taurus Horoscope (Apr 20 – May 20)

Romance continues to be kinder for you than others, Taurus. This week, a beautiful, reassuring link between love planet Venus and stabilizing Saturn will help you feel more secure than ever in your current relationship. If you’re thinking about a commitment, it’s possible you’ll be ready to say “yes” on Friday. In addition to this, your partner might be a strong supporter now, helping you to build a solid foundation around a personal dream you want to pursue.

 

Gemini Horoscope
Gemini Horoscope (May 21 – Jun 20)

You might feel ready to throw in the towel completely when it comes to your love life. Take heart, Gemini, because after this week things will begin to improve dramatically. Still, on Tuesday and Wednesday there might be more tension in the love department. If you’ve recently ended a relationship, it’s possible the break-up will not be as clean as you’d hope. Another possibility is that you will have an argument with your ex this week about who gets what. Splitting things down the middle sounds fair, but it might not work. Do your best.

 

Cancer Horoscope
Cancer Horoscope (June 21 – Jul 22)

If you’re single or newly dating, this week might prove to be a happy one in the romance department. Your sweetheart might be your rock during an otherwise tense time. Conflict at home might become overwhelming and you may turn to your lover as a source of support. Fortunately, he or she will not only rise to the occasion, but you may also realize this affair might actually have substance. If you’re married, the tension at home might continue to affect your relationship. After this week it’ll begin to wind down.

Leo Horoscope
Leo Horoscope (Jul 23 – Aug 22)

Your partner may come to the rescue this week and help out financially in a domestic situation. Perhaps someone in your clan is having money trouble and doesn’t see a way out. You and your mate might decide jointly to offer assistance. Or, it’s possible your partner will just jump in and help on his or her own. You’ll be so amazed at this act of generosity that it’ll only deepen the love you already have. Also, if you’re looking to purchase real estate together, this might be your lucky week.

Virgo Horoscope
Virgo Horoscope (Aug 23 – Sep 22)

Your love life will continue to remain intact, despite the difficult Astrology happening in the sky. It won’t be you who is directly hit, rather your Cardinal sign friends (Aries, Cancer, Libra and Capricorn). In your case, Virgo, love planet Venus will continue to move through your relationship sector, offering exquisite support in partnership matters. On Friday, Venus will embrace Saturn, now in your communication sector. You’ll have a conversation with your mate about the future of your alliance, or you’ll make a decision together that will affect you both for the long haul. It looks promising.

 

Libra Horoscope
Libra Horoscope (Sep 23 – Oct 22)

Hang in there, Libra! Admittedly, this has been a difficult month for you so far, both in matters of the heart as well as other crucial areas of your life. This week everything might seem to come to a boiling point — particularly if you’re married or in a committed partnership. On Monday, Uranus will square off with Pluto, and yet another sudden, unexpected development may wreak havoc on your love and family life. The changes now will ultimately empower you, although you’re not feeling that way at the moment. Keep the faith.

Scorpio Horoscope
Scorpio Horoscope (Oct 23 – Nov 21)

Despite a tense week overall for many, there’s promising news for you in the romance department! Love planet Venus will continue to move through your true love sector. On Friday, Venus will link up in a positive way to Saturn, the planet of stability, now in your sign. If you’ve recently met someone, you might have a real shot at turning this new love affair into something real. Or, if you’ve been dating someone for a while now, you might be ready for a declaration of love.

Sagittarius Horoscope
Sagittarius Horoscope (Nov 22 – Dec 21)

This won’t be a boring week for you in matters of the heart — that is for certain! On Monday, Uranus, the planet of revolution, which is now in your true love sector, will square off with Pluto, the planet of deep, transformational change. If you’re not “feeling the love” with someone special, you won’t hesitate to call him or her out on it. If you’re feeling unappreciated, it’s likely you’ll lay some new ground rules about how your lover needs to treat you going forward.

Capricorn Horoscope
Capricorn Horoscope (Dec 22 – Jan 19)

Hang in there, Capricorn! After this week, life will calm down immeasurably. You and your partner might have been through quite a battlefield lately, navigating unexpected changes in your domestic life and in career. On Monday, it’s possible you’ll need to endure one more round of this, but if so, by next week you’ll be singing a much different tune. Lie low this week if possible, and avoid confrontations. If single, you’ll definitely want to fast forward to next week’s forecast!

Aquarius Horoscope
Aquarius Horoscope (Jan 20 – Feb 18)

Angry communication is possible between you and a lover. You might lash out and say something you’ve been keeping to yourself because you know that if you mention it, you’d only hurt your sweetheart. If you’re tempted to reveal this information, ask yourself what your motive is. Is it so you can control or manipulate your love? Obviously that won’t be a smart move in the long run. Consider the effect your words will have on the one you love and if speaking your truth will harm or help. Then, act accordingly.

Pisces Horoscope
Pisces Horoscope (Feb 19 – Mar 20)

Matters of intimacy between you and your partner might be a bone of contention. Perhaps you’re not in agreement over how to use your joint financial resources, or maybe there has been a recent feeling of betrayal about money, or perhaps even problems relating to your sex life. Whatever the case, tread lightly and consider if a spiritual advisor can help the both of you move past whatever is getting in the way of you each fully opening up to one another again. You can get through this if you’re both willing to meet each other halfway

Your Daily Horoscopes for Saturday, March 29th

Conflicting emotions lead to complicated personal interactions today. Romance is favored as Venus and Mars align harmoniously, but Venus, the planet of love and money, also dynamically squares serious Saturn, isolating us from the sweet things in life. The imaginative Pisces Moon offers a temporary escape route through fantasies, but we eventually must face practical issues and take action once the Moon shifts into assertive Aries at 9:53 pm EDT.

Aries Horoscope

(Mar 21 – Apr 19)

You wake up and are out the door today before you even know your exact destination. But later on you may feel the need to pull back and reassess your direction. You intuitively know that something isn’t quite right and you are correct to trust your instincts now. It’s okay to socially retreat until you are ready for more involvement. Don’t make a big deal about your change of heart; just let everyone know your current uncertainty won’t last long and you’ll be back to your old self before they even know it.

Taurus Horoscope

(Apr 20 – May 20)

Paradoxically, you may be acting in a confident manner today while being hesitant at the same time. Your key planet Venus is under tense pressure from austere Saturn, and you might temporarily feel quite alone, even undeserving of love. Thankfully, Venus also forms a sweet trine to energetic Mars, empowering you to overcome your self-doubt. Switching your focus to others and spending some time with your friends ultimately helps you feel better about yourself.

Gemini Horoscope

(May 21 – Jun 20)

An uncomfortable feeling may be gnawing away at the edge of your awareness today and you cannot shake it off. Although you’re often quite lighthearted, relationship dynamics might not seem in sync now. You don’t feel as if you fit in the way you usually do, and being alienated on your home turf isn’t fun. It seems like the problem is external, but closer analysis could reveal that the emotional discord is connected to your fears. A change in your attitude can improve the chemistry quicker than you think.

Cancer Horoscope

(Jun 21 – Jul 22)

You might want someone’s shoulder to lean on today, but you may not be completely satisfied with the support you receive. There’s no need to put on a smiley face if you’re not feeling it. However, initiating an inner dialogue with your own subconscious can help to uncover the source of your loneliness. Establishing temporary boundaries around your heart protects you from being hurt, but withdrawing emotionally could be isolating. Take care of your needs without shutting down your heart in the name of fear.

Leo Horoscope

(Jul 23 – Aug 22)

The dynamics of a partnership seem so good and feel so bad all at the very same time. Circumstances appear to be going your way at first, but things might not end up according to your plan. You feel as if you don’t want to be here today, but here you are, nonetheless. The good news is you are fully responsible for creating pleasure in your life. Whatever you do, don’t give up on making positive change. You may be pleasantly surprised with how quickly things turn around in just a few short days

Virgo Horoscope

(Aug 23 – Sep 22)

Current responsibilities may create complications today because you can’t spend much time with those you love. Others might be getting the wrong idea as they feel a distance between you, but you’re not really trying to push them away. Nevertheless, they will likely react negatively as if you are shutting them out. Letting people know about your time constraints in advance keeps the expectations to a minimum.

Libra Horoscope

(Sep 23 – Oct 22)

You’re well-known for your ambivalence, which can make your life more difficult than necessary. Although magnetic Venus is visiting your 5th House of Love and Money, she travels through some tricky territory today. You might even want to run and hide instead of facing the music. However, making a decision can’t be forced. Thankfully, your willingness to be patient ultimately brings the satisfaction you seek.

Scorpio Horoscope

(Oct 23 – Nov 21)

You are entering into a period of transformation, but first there is this eye of a needle for you to squeeze through. Unfortunately, it’s not large enough for you to take all your emotional baggage with you. Although it might not feel good to leave some of your attachments behind, lightening your load puts your most intimate relationships on more solid ground. Although this is a sobering time, keep in mind it’s preparing you for something wonderful just around the corner.

Sagittarius Horoscope

(Nov 22 – Dec 21)

Today’s recipe entails mixing two tablespoons of unbridled optimism, a heaping tablespoon of caution and a tiny dash of unpleasant memories. Shake it all up until you are really unsure of which way to go. Then, spend some time pondering whether or not a current relationship is really worth the sacrifices you are making now. Even if you’re confused, your romantic life will emerge stronger in just a day or two if you’re willing to face the truth.

Capricorn Horoscope

(Dec 22 – Jan 19)

You take your commitment to love quite seriously today and want to share your perspective with anyone who will listen. But the reflective Moon in your busy 3rd House of Communication can create logistical cross-currents as everyone distracts you from your agenda. Don’t change directions now; just temporarily operate on blind faith. Your unwavering devotion should bring you closer to your goals sooner than you expect.

Aquarius Horoscope

(Jan 20 – Feb 18)

Relationships may feel strained today because it seems unlikely that you can find the peace and quiet that you seek. Perhaps money issues have crept back into your life and place a negative spin on your personal interactions. Unfortunately, there might not be a quick and easy way out of your current dilemma. Instead of running away, face the situation with confidence. Learning to trust your instincts takes practice, but there’s no better time to start than now.

Pisces Horoscope

(Feb 19 – Mar 20)

Figuring out the best course of action is tricky and you may need to proceed before you make a decision. Naturally, moving forward before you are ready is neither fun nor easy, yet it can be a life-altering experience. Ironically, Saturn creates enough resistance to act like a catalyst, temporarily pulling you into uncharted emotional depths. Luckily, you have nothing to fear and everything to gain on this magical journey.

Our Daily Horoscopes for Wednesday, March 5th

Although our basic needs might not drift too far from the norm, a cosmic shift stimulates unusual desires today. The grounded Taurus Moon helps us remain practical; her harmonious aspects to powerful Pluto and the willful Sun further reward us with stability. However, sociable Venus enters eccentric Aquarius, inspiring us to dream about a new relationship between vulnerability and intimacy. Unconventional ideas free love from its restrictive box.

Aries Horoscope

(Mar 21 – Apr 19)

A thick layer of resistance starts to clear as you are released from a previous commitment. Thankfully, you can visualize some free time on your calendar, so start making plans now to be with your friends. But be careful not to put too many events on your schedule or you might just feel restrained again. Too much social activity is just as oppressive as too much work. Allow a little room just for yourself with nothing to do at all.

Taurus Horoscope

(Apr 20 – May 20)

You may feel more passionate about your job while your key planet Venus travels through your 10th House of Career. Simultaneously, this transit could also stress your romantic life. If you’re struggling now between fulfilling your personal needs and your business responsibilities, don’t shy away from the difficult issues just because they are more complicated. Remember, your public life has little meaning if you don’t also attend to your heart.

Gemini Horoscope

(May 21 – Jun 20)

You are blown about by some unexpected winds of change today as whimsical Mercury connects with radical Uranus. Your attractions are growing more diverse and you are losing patience because you’re not content to wait and see where you land in the next few years. This is not just idle curiosity at work; you have a genuine desire to expand your horizons now. Don’t resist the shifting currents; instead, imagine your destination in your mind’s eye, and then let it go.

Cancer Horoscope

(Jun 21 – Jul 22)

You might feel unsettled today, as if your emotions are out of sorts. However, your concern is not likely strong enough to make you do anything drastic. Be careful that you don’t become too possessive in a relationship since the presence of Venus in your 8th of Intimacy entices you with the notion of assuming more control. Unfortunately, tightening your grip could backfire quickly if you let your fears get the best of you. Open your heart and let love in.

Leo Horoscope

(Jul 23 – Aug 22)

You want more out of life now but aren’t prepared to sacrifice your freedom to get it. Venus is tripping through your 7th House of Partners, turning your attention toward a variety of relationships this month. It may be easy these days to earn adoration, but being in the spotlight can make your life more complex as you strive for greater independence. Remember, compromise is tricky; there’s no reason to give up too much to get something you don’t even want.

Virgo Horoscope

(Aug 23 – Sep 22)

You have decisions to make today, yet you may be feeling ambivalent as you’re pulled simultaneously in two different directions. Instead of looking for one long-term solution, focus on the satisfaction you can derive from helping others now. Being of service reminds you of what matters and motivates you to do your current job as compassionately as possible.

Libra Horoscope

(Sep 23 – Oct 22)

You’re in the mood to play today, even if you must finish your work first. Your desire for self-indulgence is high throughout the month as your key planet Venus luxuriates in your 5th House of Spontaneity and Pleasure. Lighthearted fun takes precedence now, but it’s still wise to concentrate on your boundaries so you don’t eat, drink or party more than you should. Maintaining a healthy balance means more time to enjoy yourself in the long run.

Scorpio Horoscope

(Oct 23 – Nov 21)

Idealizing the past could make you feel nostalgic today, giving rise to tension about a current situation. You are more attracted now to creature comforts at home, but might be overly hard on yourself as you fulfill your needs instead of resolving a problem. However, you are not just taking the easy way out by being kinder to yourself. You are also building a foundation for the big changes that are already on their way.

Sagittarius Horoscope

(Nov 22 – Dec 21)

Your love light could undergo changes as you trade common sense for greater independence over the next month. You have a more mental attachment to pleasure now that resourceful Venus is visiting your 3rd House of Communication. Although someone might think you’re pulling away, you are just less concerned with expressing your passion. Don’t let anyone else’s reactions put you off. Revealing your unconventional needs to a trustworthy friend doesn’t mean your freedom is at risk.

Capricorn Horoscope

(Dec 22 – Jan 19)

Contrary to what your heart is saying, it makes more sense to build on what you have already started over the past few months. Sweet Venus enters your 2nd House of Possessions today, where she triggers all your delicious cravings. Although you Goats know that stability is more important than fleeting gratification, sometimes you deserve to indulge. However, be careful about putting yourself in a financially precarious position as you strive for emotional satisfaction through the material world.

Aquarius Horoscope

(Jan 20 – Feb 18)

It may take a few days for an energetic wave of good feelings to wash over your life after lovely Venus dances into your sign. However, someone else might notice a change in you right away. You have a twinkle in your eye now, making you even more alluring. Take advantage of this time by upgrading your image any way you can. Wanting to present yourself in a positive light is not shallow; it’s simply a reflection of your healthy self-esteem. Real beauty shines from within

Pisces Horoscope

(Feb 19 – Mar 20)

Feeling compassionate places an uncharacteristic strain on you now because you want to establish clear boundaries between you and others. Paradoxically, it may be this sense of separateness that enables you to be so empathetic, since you don’t need to be concerned now about being swallowed up by your own sensitivity. As long as you accept the fact that you cannot save the whole world, you can certainly help some deserving people along the way — including yourself.
