What’s in store for your love life in the week ahead? With the love planet Venus taking a time-out starting Saturday and this spring’s upcoming Venus Retrograde, there’s a lot to keep straight. Be prepared with our weekly love horoscope, courtesy of the Love Astrologer, Kathryn Andren.
Aries (March 21–April 19)
The good news for you, Aries, is that your relationship region is expanded in 2017. The largest planet, Jupiter, focuses on creating balanced partnerships now through October. You may take a step back this Saturday, however, when love planet Venus retrogrades March 4 through mid April. Let your defenses down and remember that the only way out is through.
Taurus (April 20–May 20)
Taurus, this spring is a good time to take care of old business (a spring cleaning of sorts). Close the door on the past starting this Saturday, March 4, when love planet Venus goes retrograde in your region of completions and closures. Reconsider what is really important and say goodbye to people, projects, or plans that no longer serve you.
Gemini (May 21–June 20)
Next weekend will start a time of reflection when the love plant Venus retrogrades in your area of associates. Be sure to keep the company of the friends who lift your spirits. Saturn supports commitment in your region of relationship this year, so consider who truly stands the test of time. With friends or lovers, this is the time to be more serious about your personal partnerships. Remember who matters most.
Cancer (June 21–July 22)
Balancing your public and private lives is especially important for you this spring. The love planet Venus is in retrograde on March 4 in your career zone until mid April. You make your life work for you when you take time to create clear boundaries with work and play. Remember, power planet Pluto has been creating transformation in your region of relationships for years now. Align with powerful partners and let go of people in your life who no longer serve you.
Leo (July 23–August 22)
Travel and making new connections are in your future, Leo. Good-luck planet Jupiter continues to move through your area of connections and communications. If you are looking for love, reach out to friends, neighbors, and even siblings to support you. This weekend, love planet Venus activates your area of travel and philosophy, so carve out some time for an extravagant journey in early spring!
Virgo (August 23–September 22)
Cha-ching! You may experience some unexpected income this spring. There is extra energy for you as the planet of love and money moves through your area of intimacy and inheritance for most of March and April. The cycle called Venus Retrograde starts this Saturday, March 4, and it’s especially important that you don’t keep secrets from your special someone, and vice-versa. Stay aware and awake to discern truth from illusion.
Libra (September 23–October 22)
This week, take one step back before moving two steps forward. Your ruling planet, Venus, retrogrades this weekend, energizing your area of marriage and relationships. Keep your cool as passion-planet Mars meet unpredictable Uranus. Reassess who is really important to you and what matters most with your loved ones. The good news is, you are lucky in love right now, as the planet of good fortune expands equally conscious partnerships.
Scorpio (October 23–November 21)
Perhaps your quest for perfection is holding you back from getting the love you desire. Take extra care starting next Saturday, March 4, when the Venus Retrograde energizes your area of work and daily routine. Be sure to focus on exercise and healthy habits this spring and the love planet Venus will support your living a life you love.
Sagittarius (November 22–December 21)
Ready for romance? The love planet activates your area of children, creativity, and romance for most of March and April, during the Venus Retrograde cycle, starting March 4. Remember to have fun if you are taking yourself too seriously. Potent planet patterns happening this week focus on the future, so consider what you really want in both life and love.
Capricorn (December 22–January 19)
You may need more privacy or “me” time right now. Embrace it; just be sure to let your sweetheart know if you need some space this spring. Love planet Venus highlights your home life during its retrograde cycle, starting Saturday, after all. Get cozy on the couch with your special someone, or enjoy some family fun, but be sure to take some quiet time just for you.
Aquarius (January 20–February 18)
Ready for blast-off? Your area of travel remains expanded, and you may have an itch to take off and hit the trail sometime this spring. The Venus Retrograde starting March 4 energizes your area of connections and communication. If you are single and looking for love, be selective with your choice of words when asking for what you want. It’s important to say what you mean and do what you say.
Pisces (February 19–March 20)
Take your time this week, Pisces. You may feel more inward since last Sunday’s solar eclipse fell in your sign, activating your area of individual expression, and that’s OK! Pay attention to the messages you receive from your dreams also. Taking time out to reflect in a dream journal can inspire life and love. This Saturday, the love plant Venus retrogrades through your zone of dream time and completions. A blast from the past may also resurface in the coming weeks, or you may get the message it's time to say goodbye to an old flame.
