You can be focused on love later in the month with the Sun, Mercury, and Jupiter in your love sector, and you express the love you feel, want to connect with loved ones, and let our your romantic side, but the Venus retrograde at the end of the month can throw a monkey wrench into your plans. If single, watch for the return of an old flame. If in a relationship, try to reconnect and make it feel like it did when you first met, perhaps even recreating old romantic moments.
You want an emotional connection in love for most of the month, and if single, you seek someone who understands you emotionally, while if in a relationship, you try to strengthen your emotional ties. With Venus turning retrograde later in the month, things can get tricky for you as we end the month, and you care less for that emotional connection, just wanting to get attention from others and make the focus all about you, ignoring them.
The full moon on the 1st in your intimacy sector makes you desire strong bonds and a strong emotional connection with others, so if in a relationship, you try to become closer to your partner. If single, you want someone who will be serious about the relationship, and have no patience for superficial people. The Venus retrograde at the end of the month can make a mental connection harder to come by, and you might find that you don’t have much to say to each other.
The full moons this month tackle your relationship sector on the 1st and your intimacy sector on the 31st, making you take stock of your relationships, your commitment, your intimacy, and your bonds with others. If in a relationship, you want these to be stronger, and can work on making them last a lifetime. If single, you only want someone if they’ll have the same approach. At the end of the month, the Venus retrograde can make passion a hard thing for you to find.
You can be loving early in the month with Venus in your sign, and want to share your affections with others freely. Things can change toward the end of the month though when Venus turns retrograde, and with her quickly retrograding into your sign, you can find that a love connection is difficult. If in a relationship, you can feel more distant with your partner, and if single, you just don’t find anyone that is really appealing. An old flame could creep back in with the full moon on the 31st in your relationship sector.
The full moon on the 1st occurs in your love sector, and you can take love more seriously then. If in a relationship, you want there to be passion and a deep connection between you, and if single, you want someone you feel you have a soul mate connection with. The Venus retrograde later in the month can bring things behind closed doors, and you have a harder time showing your feelings, wanting to keep them to yourself and not wanting anyone to see your intentions.
The full moon on the 31st in your love sector can be a make-or-break moment for a new relationship, especially with Venus retrograde at that point. Are you in, or are you out? Uranus turning retrograde in your relationship sector on the 26th might leave you feeling like things need to be changed, but you’re unsure of what changes exactly need to be made, so nothing new happens. Love is mostly intellectual this month, and you keep emotions out of it.
You want to keep things casual in love during the first half of the month, and if single, can make it passionate but don’t want anything beyond that. If in a relationship, you can spice things up and make it fun again. During the second half of the month, you can be at a standstill with what you want, and aren’t sure of the responsibilities you have. Love just doesn’t feel like a big priority, and you get distracted by other things that get in the way and keep you occupied.
You can be more serious in love this month, wanting strong bonds and close ties, especially earlier in the month. If single, you want someone serious, with depth, and who understands you emotionally. If in a relationship, you want to grow even closer and learn more about them. Later in the month, you might feel a little bored and want changes that can’t happen, and become lazy with passion. You might think you have the answers now, but not yet.
Relationships can get tested with the Venus retrograde that begins this month, and you feel it coming early. You may want to focus on your relationships earlier in the month to make sure they can withstand the heat, and the new moon on the 15th in your relationship sector can help. You’re distracted once the Venus retrograde begins, and know that your intimate relationships can be on the edge going into next month, so try to keep your composure.
Venus retrograde can play with your intimate relationships this month, and all relationships next month, so you have to have some patience and not let it get to you. The Sun and Mercury enter your relationship sector this month, bringing some focus and shining a spotlight on your relationships, and Jupiter is already there with his expansive energy, but Venus has other things in mind. Remember that whatever passes may not be permanent, so don’t fret.
You try to be practical in love early in the month, and don’t turn up the romance until the new moon in your love sector on the 15th. If single, someone new can come around that grabs your attention, and if in a relationship, you can inject some fun into the relationship. Venus turns retrograde later in the month, and you can have some issues in your relationships then. The energy is over fast, gone by next month, so don’t do anything that can’t be reversed.
