Mercury and Mars are your principal planets of romance and love, ruling your seventh and fifth houses respectively, with Venus ruling your 11th house of friendships and social activities.
Mars, your planet of love and romance transit your fifth house in January 28 and form some powerful aspects firstly to the sign on February 21, Pluto in February 22 and Uranus on February 27, all pointing to very intense interactions with those you love or are attempting to have relationships with. There’s something fated about these combinations and occasionally, the love which burns brightly, can die out just as quickly, and with the Mars and Uranus combination, perhaps even explosively at that.
When Venus transits your fifth house of love affairs on February 4 you can expect an upswing in creativity, fun, the company of your children and perhaps even new lovers. As the fifth house also regulates your creative activities, you should see this part of your personality thrive under this transit. You will be able to express yourself not just creatively but romantically as well and there are definitely opportunities to meet someone who fits the bill of soulmate at this time. This is even more pronounced when Venus transits your seventh house of marriage on July 5. This is a stronger placement for true and lasting love and continues up until August 1. Sexual activities are pronounced with the transit of Venus in your eighth house and continue up until the 26th.
Between April 21 and June 5, Mars transits your significant marital sector. Although Mars is a likely planet and rules your fifth house of love affairs indicating that you may feel an intensification of your emotional desires, we mustn’t forget that Mars still carries with it its inherent volatile qualities which may lead to differences of opinion, argumentation and in the worst case scenario, physical abuse. On May 12 particularly you may feel completely confused and possibly even paralysed to make decisions or to move in a direction that you want to in your relationships.
Those of you who are already married may feel that this is a critical point in the development of your partnership. The high strung conjunction of Mercury to Uranus on May 10 doesn’t help matters however on the 12th and 15th of May, Mercury forms favourable aspect to Saturn, the North node and then on the 16th making this a more stable combination. Using the energy of Mercury you will be able to communicate your way through some of these difficult patterns.
On May 20 Venus opposes your ruler Jupiter from the fifth house and this could be a problem-either through exaggeration, wasteful expenditure or simply wasteful feelings on a cause that has no good end. You mustn’t be impulsive during this transit even though on May 24 Venus trines the Sun bringing with it more popularity. The square of Venus to Pluto on the 26th indicates some big lessons in your love life and if you are too obsessed by someone you may be missing some of the finer details of their personality and also of how in fact the relationship actually is.
Fiery and maybe even sexual discussions take place during the transit of Mercury when it is in conjunction with Mars on June 29. Mercury is transit through your eighth house up until July 6 we didn’t get down to the nitty-gritty of what psychologically bothering you with your partner and vice versa. The eighth house is not just about sex and physical intimacy but covers a whole range of topics including psychological complexes, shared resources which may be mutual love as well, and so these are the areas that need to be addressed during this transit.
August is an active time for romance with Mars trining the Sun on August 17, Saturn on the 22nd and then Uranus on 2 September. You will be physically driven until take the initiative to actively meet people you and to develop those relationships in a very strong way. Mars will be transiting through your ninth house of travel so it is likely at this time you may venture out into different localities and perhaps even out of the country to connect with possible romantic partners.
Venus moves into its own sign of Libra in your 11th house of October 14 and remains there until November 7 bringing with it some wonderful social opportunities. Unfortunately Venus rules your sixth house of health issues and it is during this period that someone of your friends may fall unwell or have some problems generally in their lives. You may be called upon to assist them, advise them and generally be emotionally supportive of them.
There may be some sudden alliances formed when Venus trines Uranus on December 21. This is a classic aspect indicating great excitability, newfound friends and a twist in your romantic affairs indicating something quite unusual about those you will need at this time.
