Love Horoscope for the Week of January 11

What an interesting, complicated, and strange week it is in the zodiac for love and romance! In some ways, it’s like being invited to the best and tastiest buffet in town, but your jaw is wired shut. Or maybe it’s like going to the buffet and finding it’s closed. Or maybe… (Can we have a moment of silence for the buffet? We lost a lot in 2020, and I’m sure I will miss buffets for a long time yet. ) So rather than try to make sense of all this in the form of a standard linear narrative, let me just provide you with all the evidence. Then you can decide what to do with it all. THE GOOD Venus trine Uranus is exact on Wednesday. This aspect can add additional sparkle and shine to an existing relationship, or possibly bring in something new, exciting, and diffe...

Love Horoscope for the Week of November 29

After some very challenging weeks, with difficult Mars aspects to first Saturn and then Uranus, I am pleased to report that this week’s romantic outlook is actually pretty darn good. And once again, this is because of an emphasis on (among other things) Mars in Scorpio… which is playing nicely with the other planets for once. Mars in Scorpio is trine Neptune this week, with the exact aspect happening on Monday. This will make the entire week a generally good and happy time for getting things done, whether we are talking about long-standing projects that requires a gentle touch, or “getting things done” in the bedroom. If you’ve been reading my work for a while, you know that I sometimes provide some caution when the sexual energies are as ramped up as they w...

Love Horoscope for the Week of January 25

“Have you thought about having a nice shag in your living room?” – pickup line at a 1970s carpet store Congratulations everyone on surviving the potential mayhem that came with Mars conjunct Uranus, square Saturn and Jupiter! Nice work. I was worried about things there for a while. Now, can we get back to the love and romance? Mars conjunct Uranus may be past the exact degree, but it is still in full effect this week without the discomfort that Saturn was causing to that combination. One of the more obvious effects of Mars conjunct Uranus is a sudden uptick in sex drives. Of course, that is a vital component in romantic relationships, but there’s more to it than that. Mars has been under a lot of stress and strain recently, and its energies haven’t been able...

Love Horoscope for the Week of February 1

The week starts under the influence of Sun square Mars. This aspect can certainly lend some punch to your personal relationships and boost some egos. Just make sure that your ego, or that of someone close to you, doesn’t lead to someone getting actually, physically punched. Mars loves expressing itself through direct action. Venus enters Aquarius on Monday. Whenever Venus changes signs, it usually represents a bit of a tonal shift as to where and how romance plays out. Venus in Aquarius doesn’t normally get a whole lot of press for being either being a “good placement” or a “bad placement.” As with all things Aquarius, this placement often gets filed away under “interesting but a little unusual.” …Not this week, though. Venus is gett...

Love Horoscope for the Week of February 8

Have you noticed recently that even a good week sometimes feels like it’s standing in the shadow of something bigger and more ominous? That sort of thing is to be expected, given the current state of the world. But there is an astrological reason for that, especially this week. Although the exact aspect doesn’t happen until next week, Saturn square Uranus is now very close to the exact degree. Don’t be too surprised if you feel it breathing down your neck particularly strongly this week. Putting things together will be more difficult than average, and breaking free of patterns will be more of a challenge. Well, that was cheerful, wasn’t it? Now on with better news… When it comes to love, sex, and romance, we generally look to Venus and Mars first. Both of those p...

Love Horoscope for the Week of February 15

Even though this is a weekly horoscope, this week it is going to be impossible to talk about what’s happening without discussing the biggest single aspect of the year. Saturn square Uranus makes its first exact hit on Wednesday. This will fill the entire week with disruption, confusion, and an inability to get things done in a sane and sensible way. But really, take a look at the state of the world. Hasn’t that already been the case for all of 2021? On Thursday, the Sun enters Pisces. Pisces has a reputation for gentleness and kind concern, and frankly couldn’t we all use a little more of that lately? Fortunately, there is other good news coming along for love and romance. And let’s be honest here: sometimes finding refuge with a loved one is exactly the right way...

Love Horoscope for the Week of November 22

This week’s planetary energy, although not perfect, should prove to be a nice change of pace from previous weeks. Mars is done butting heads with Saturn and Uranus. Mars is slowly building towards the square with Jupiter, but there’s not too much reason to worry about that until a couple of weeks from now. And of course, how can we have a love horoscope without looking at what condition Venus is in? Venus is in some pretty interesting shape lately. Capricorn, which I’ve argued previously is a much better placement for her than most people give it credit for, is ruled by Saturn in Aquarius — which is the sign that Saturn traditionally rules. Overall, this could lend some strength to your bonds. You may have heard that Venus is approaching a retrograde. That’s...

Love Horoscope for the Week of November 15

I’ve heard in several different places that the best way to start a difficult conversation is with something positive, or a compliment. Hey, you look great today! Okay. Now we need to talk about the Mars aspects that are going to make this week so challenging. Yes, there is other good news, and I will get to that later. But for the entire year, Saturn square Uranus has been an ongoing challenge and nuisance for too many of us. It’s been a year of a lot of shouting and little listening. That aspect is coming together for its final exact hit end of December. But the jangling it has called has been amplified lately by Mars in Scorpio. This week begins with us still shaking off the challenging and difficult energy of Mars square Saturn. Many of us will continue to find our propos...
