This week, Neptune begins its annual five month retrograde, inviting us to be more introspective and to take the time we need to connect to our more spiritual side. The Summer Solstice arrives on the 21st—the first official day of summer! The only tricky part to the week comes from a Venus/Mars opposition that day, making relationships potentially a bit testy.
On Saturday, a Mercury/Pluto opposition could add fuel to the fire, so be sure to stay in the Neptunian "live and let live" mindset as much as possible.
To see what the week has in store for you specifically, here’s your weekly love horoscopes courtesy of astrologer Suzie Kerr Wright.
Aries (March 21-April 20)
You'll be a bit more reclusive than usual this week, so if you're in a new relationship you might want to give your partner a heads up that it's nothing personal. By the end of the week you'll be back to your energetic self, but if you've ignored someone, you might feel their wrath. Keep communications open and friendly.
Taurus (April 21-May 20)
Duty calls and you're more than happy to answer. Work is productive and you'll find you have more energy if you consider it something you get to do, rather than have to do. Friends may not be the most reliable now, so plan a get together on Sunday that might let you blow off some steam.
Gemini (May 21-June 20)
Some things are just not in your control, but know that you've already set the wheels in motion. Have patience and focus on tying up loose ends on home projects. The correspondence you've been waiting for will come through by the end of the week. Try to plan a simple date night with no phones allowed.
Cancer (June 21-July 22)
Metaphysical subjects will grab your attention now. A retreat or class in spirituality or even planning a dream vacation will bring you a tremendous sense of connection and peace. Even if that's not your thing, allowing yourself to speak from the heart is more important now than ever before. Loved ones are listening closely and will support you.
Leo (July 23-August 22)
You've got your mind on your money and your money on your mind! This is a good week for Leos to seek out a new position or a way to increase income. Those in charge are watching closely to see how you handle major problems or projects, so keep your frustration level in check. Try challenging yourself to come up with out of the box solutions.
Virgo (August 23-September 22)
A difficult talk with a loved one comes more easily than you expect this week. You'll get to the bottom of an issue that's been just beneath the surface for some time. Don't overthink how you'll approach it. Instead, just carve out some time alone with them and let the conversation flow naturally.
Libra (September 23-October 22)
It may be a bit hard to keep up with your regular visits to the gym or yoga class with all that is distracting you this week, and you may feel you don't have much to give to your partner either. It’s okay to give yourself permission to take a break. Your boss may be giving you a guilt trip about needing you to stay late, but spending time with your sweetheart is more important now.
Scorpio (October 23-November 21)
You'll feel like you're goofing off, but you're not. Conversations with your closest friends and loved ones help you get off of the hamster wheel of being busy all the time and into a more creative space. Ideas will be flowing as you listen more than talk now. A date to a museum would be perfect to bring you and your beloved even closer and to find a shared interest you'll discuss for years to come.
Sagittarius (November 22-December 21)
It's a tug of war between wanting to be responsible and wanting to play this week. But that’s kind of a typical Sag dilemma. This week, though, it's punctuated by some real world concerns for finances due to some unexpected expenses. You can have a good balance of work and play, it just takes practice. Oh and worry? It does nothing to help the situation. Tap into that Sagittarius optimism and know that it will all work out in the end.
Capricorn (December 22-January 19)
Mercury opposing your Sun draws you out your inner extrovert , though it may suddenly appears when you least expect it. You'll find you have just the right words to soothe a family member's troubles and you'll receive the same kindness from anyone close to you—even if you just need someone to listen as you vent about your day at work. Speak your mind. A lovely, creative surprise from your partner will melt your heart.
Aquarius (January 20-February 18)
An old financial wound may come back to haunt you, but briefly. Before lashing out at your loved ones or blowing things out of proportion, celebrate recent financial gains and know this is just a checkup or check in to measure your resilience against future mistakes. Resist any temptation to spend the way you used to and make sure you are talking with your partner in terms of shared ideas for the future, rather than looking to place blame. You can do this!
Pisces (February 19-March 20)
You'll finally see the light about someone who's been taking advantage of your kindness and good nature and will realize it's okay to set a strong boundary now. If you are in business, you'll want to be clear about your prices, et cetera as misunderstandings are common at this time. It's also just one of those weeks where you may feel imposed upon or not fully appreciated, so stick closely to those you know love you unconditionally. Let them spoil you, and don't worry about the others!
