Asteroid of romance, Amor, is moving from sweet Pisces to take-charge Aries soon, and will be in-and-out of Aries until April 2024. How does this impact us?
About Amor in Astrology
Amor is an asteroid in astrology, and there are tens of thousands of asteroids, and each connects to something different. Many are simply names, but some like Amor connect to specific energies.
In the case of asteroid Amor, this is the asteroid of romantic love. Amor shows how we express love and romance, and in transit, we can see this via the Zodiac sign Amor is touring, and the natal house it's touring in your natal chart.
Asteroid Amor in Aries 2023 - 2024
With Amor in Pisces, love has been more dreamy, romantic and lovey-dovey. In Aries, it's a bit more fun and free.
Amor in Aries puts Amor in the take-charge sign as Aries wants to take the initiative with everything. Instead of letting romance come to us, we're the ones chasing it. If you're a hunter by nature, that gets amplified now, and your natural hunter instincts can turn up. If single, you can be on the prowl, and enjoy chasing and being chased as it's all a game of love for you. If in a relationship, you may want to make it fun again in some way, and you can be willing to take a chance on romantic gestures.
This can be a challenge when Amor is retrograde in Aries though, and this occurs July 19th to August 24th in Aries (Amor goes back to Pisces at that time, where the retrograde ends November 7th 2023). We may be a little too aggressive in romance and need to be more considerate. We may want to be loose and free and avoid strings of any kind. We may need to become more aware of romance issues and baggage.
Amor tours Zodiac sign Aries from June 13th to August 24th 2023, then comes back January 30th to April 21st 2024.
Conjunctions for Amor in Aries:
Amor in Aries won't make any conjunctions in 2023 since it turns retrograde early in Aries (4 degrees). In 2024 Amor in Aries will conjunct the Sun on April 17th at 28 degrees, and this is just before Amor leaves Aries. The Sun shines a light, and we can be more focused on love and romance at that time, and want to enjoy it.
Amor in Aries conjuncts Chiron on March 22nd 2024 at 18 degrees. Chiron is the wounded healer, showing our greatest wounds, but also how we can heal and grow. Amor conjunct Chiron can bring opportunities for healing from past love and romance trauma and baggage, and we can be more understanding. But, it can also bring potential for more wounding if we don't have good boundaries.
Amor in Aries conjuncts Mercury twice, first on March 19th at 16 degrees, and then again on April 8th at 24 degrees while Mercury is retrograde. Mercury is the communication planet, so we may be more expressive in romance and more willing to voice interest. We may think more about romantic plans, and find the right words to say what we feel. With Mercury retrograde, there can be some old issues to work through first, and past life or early life baggage may be addressed.
