Aries 

MAR 21 - APR 19 

Oh Aries, your love life is definitely kicking into high gear this week! Venus moves into your partnership sector on Monday, suggesting that you want commitment and harmony with someone and you're willing to do whatever is necessary to achieve it -- just not this week. You're guarded this week about relationships -- especially on Thursday when Venus squares off with Saturn. There's something you're afraid of. Why? Adding to the mix is a Solar Eclipse in your true love sector on Saturday. This eclipse touches retrograde Mercury, also in the same part of your chart. You are very likely to reconnect with an ex-lover ... and fall in love all over again.

 

Taurus

APR 20 - MAY 20 

You're as unsteady as they come this week, Taurus, which is so unlike you. Nothing will be stable in your life -- especially your love life. Here's the thing: Uranus, the planet of shake-ups and shake-downs will turn retrograde in your sign on Tuesday. With Uranus changing direction you're likely to express the most radical parts of this energy. That means a sudden turn of direction about something in your life. In terms of relationships this can mean a sudden break-up or a sudden hook-up. In some cases, both. Never say never, Taurus. With Uranus in your sign, nothing is out of bounds ... or out of reach.

 

Gemini 

MAY 21 - JUN 20 

If you're single, you've got something to look forward to this week -- after a short delay. Venus will move into your true love sector for her annual visit on Monday, and remains here through September 9. Usually, this is an amazing indicator of romantic potential. This week, however, not so much. Venus will square off with Saturn on Thursday, triggering your insecurities and vulnerabilities about intimacy. You might meet someone, but you're guarded. So guarded. Don't write this person off just yet. Next week you might change your mind or realize that you've created unnecessary blocks to love. The potential is there. Be open.

  

Cancer 

JUN 21 - JUL 22 

Your partner might be raining on your parade when it comes to you enjoying all the goodies that are currently happening in your family life. Maybe your love isn't as optimistic as you are about whatever this is, or maybe he or she is just being a stick in the mud for no reason at all. Whatever the case, you're not interested in entertaining your mate's negativity when you are clearly seeing the blessings all around you. Hopefully, by the end of the week, some of your positive vibes will rub off on him or her. If not, just hang out with your clan. They have the right attitude.

 

Leo 

JUL 23 - AUG 22 

There are cosmic forces at work in your life that are truly life-changing. A Solar Eclipse in your sign on Saturday will usher in an entire new energy for you. This eclipse is dramatic and will absolutely push your soul to its next level of evolution and growth through remarkable changes. The thing for you to realize, however, is that before you can take advantage of this massive opportunity, you need to clear the decks of outworn thought patterns that are mucking up all the potential for your greatness. Yes, this includes your love life. Especially your love life.

  

Virgo 

AUG 23 - SEP 22 

You are quite a negative Nelly this week when it comes to love. You seem absolutely convinced that love isn't in the cards for you -- that true love just doesn't exist. Sure, maybe you have had more than your fair share of disappointments in the past. Maybe you have been in relationships with people who completely took advantage of you and all that you have to give. But guess what: That doesn't mean you should automatically discount the power of one genuine connection to turn your world around. Stay open. As for your broken heart? It's the lover, not the love.

  

Libra 

SEP 23 - OCT 22 

You've got it going on this week, Libra. Unfortunately, everyone else will know this except for you. Venus moves into your sign on Monday and remains in Libra through September 9. Whether you're single or attached, you'll notice more attention from others. Why? Because you're giving off a magnetic, beautiful vibe. Well ... just not this week. This week it seems as if you are feeling more like an ugly duckling with a deflated attitude about love. That's because Venus will square Saturn on Thursday, bringing you down and filling your heart with doubt and insecurity. Don't worry, it won't last. Try not to feed this insecurity. Besides, it's not even true!

  

Scorpio 

OCT 23 - NOV 21 

You might feel like you're a prisoner when it comes to love. Maybe it's because you've gotten yourself involved with someone you know you can't be with. Sure, this can be an actual affair, but it might also be another type of situation you need to keep secret such as dating someone you work with when you are both risking your jobs to do so. Whatever the details, this week the burden of your love connection might outweigh the benefit. You're tired of being secretive or confined when it comes to your love life. So, what will you do to change it?

  

Sagittarius 

NOV 22 - DEC 21 

Your friends can definitely help you when it comes to your love life woes this week. Make no mistake: you will have love life woes. Whether they are real or imagined, however, is another story. You might be making a mountain out of a molehill, or it's possible that you have a genuine problem. Your friends will be able to help you sort it out. Most likely, if you are stressed, it has to do with feeling as if you're the one always giving in the relationship and your lover is the one always taking. Reciprocity is a must. If your friends think your relationship is out of balance, listen to their advice. And do something about it.

  

Capricorn 

DEC 22 - JAN 19 

You've got it going on in your career, but this week it won't make you feel any better when it comes to your "meh" love life scenario. You are probably in the mindset that you're great at everything else in your life except for relationships. This is because your approach to everything else is strategic and ambitious. You are someone who will never stop climbing the mountain until you reach the top. Unfortunately, love doesn't work the same way as your professional life does. Strategy and romance simply don't mix. You know this is true.

  

Aquarius 

JAN 20 - FEB 18 

Your love life is about to move to a whole new level. But first, you'll have to mentally prepare. A Solar Eclipse falls in your commitment sector on Saturday, which will absolutely bring in a fresh start for you and your mate. You might make a stronger commitment to someone you're dating such as deciding to move in together, get engaged or even get married. If you're already hitched, there's a new dimension coming in your relationship. It's good. The only hiccup is that Mercury is retrograde in your partnership sector at the time of this eclipse. So either the goodness will be delayed or you have to get your head on straight before you can enjoy it.

  

Pisces 

FEB 19 - MAR 20

Your desire for intimacy with another soul might be overpowered this week by your fear. You're in a place where you genuinely want to forge a deep, erotic, and psychologically rich connection with someone. The problem, however, is that you may also feel terrified of the very thing you heart craves. Talking to your friends about this inner demon of yours isn't likely to help much. In fact, they will probably only reinforce it. Instead, take a timeout and evaluate your fears on your own. The monster in your closet when it comes to love isn't really a monster. In fact, it's nothing.
