The best relationships rest on first-class communication and fortunately as 2017 starts, we find the planet of love, Venus, transiting into your third house opening the way for more meaningful discussions, connectivity and reciprocal affection as a result. Your idealism is strong when Venus makes conjunction to Neptune on the 13th but it’s a bit of a roadblock on the 28th with the square to Saturn which could very well cool affections down on both sides of the equation. Keep up that communication to smooth things over.
With Venus going retrograde on March 4, you could find your relationships in a tailspin and this continues up until April 15 when you can get your romantic relations back on track. The unexpected may happen during this period so don’t be at all surprised if you’re surprised by the behavior of those you consider to be usually reliable.
With a new Moon on April 26 transiting your fifth house, these two months should see the commencement of new friendships and also possibly new relationships. This is also shown by the fact that on June 6 Venus moves to your amorous fifth house of love affairs, bringing with it loads of opportunity to engage with the other sex and if you are single, to really entertain the idea of meeting someone who is fit to be your soulmate. On the 24th, Venus makes excellent aspects to powerful and transformative Pluto and also the Sun highlighting your ability to trust and share your feelings with those you feel a worthy.
The New Moon of July 2013 in your eighth house signals a keen interest in deepening your understanding of the psychology of yourself, your partner in the relationship as a whole. This precedes another excellent transit is that of Venus in the seventh house and this happens on August 1 and continues through until August 26. This is the time to make your ideals a reality and this can happen with the beautiful trine aspect of Venus to Neptune on the 12th which although giving you the ability to make your dreams come true, still cautions you do not float off the ground when meeting someone new.
As there’s an opposition to Pluto and Sun on the 15th and 17th respectively, this could challenge you in your relationships but more from the fact that you’re looking at the world through rose colored glasses rather than accepting people for who they are and making decisions based on empirical evidence rather than airy fairy, whimsical nostalgia.
Venus transiting through your house of sexuality from August 26 to September 20 adds some sizzle to your life and gives you the opportunity not to just enjoy your relationship physically but to genuinely become more intimate with your partner. The Venus trines Saturn aspect that takes place on September 13 and the trine aspect to Uranus on September 18 allow you to maintain your stable relationship while at the same time exploring some new avenues that can bring you closer together. For singles this is a time when unexpected meetings can also bring sexual satisfaction.
More fun times await you during October with the planets Jupiter, Mercury and Sun transiting your 11th house of sociability on October 10, 17 and 23 respectively. Mercury Sun and Jupiter provide great opportunities through your communication skills and although our focal point here is your relationships, the Sun and Mercury are often involved in business and other professional activities so your social life and work may indeed overlap during this interval and will continue into November and December when both Venus and Mars also transit this highly laudable place in your horoscope.
The 11th house brings fulfilment and on November 7 when Venus transits this area of your horoscope until December of 1, you’ll find an upswing in your social activities, new friendships being formed and possibly some sense of achievement in your relationships. This is also highlighted on November 13 when Venus moves to the highly auspicious conjunction of Jupiter which indicates gifts, good fortune and opportunities in love and romance. This would have to be one of the highlights of the year romantically speaking.
December could be a somewhat confusing time when Venus moves to your 12th house. There may be secrets or some dissatisfaction you have with your relationship at may not want to share that with others, least of all with the person you may not be happy with. On the 10th Venus squares Neptune and leading up to the 26th when it makes conjunction to Saturn, you could feel somewhat isolated and mustn’t allow that to disrupt your Christmas festivities.
