As much as a romantically charged lunar eclipse last month was an important event for matters of the heart and all things romantic, it came at a time when there was a lot of pressure and even challenges. Fortunately, unlike an ordinary Full Moon, what is triggered on an eclipsing Full Moon has an extraordinarily long shelf life and only fully reveals itself weeks or even months later. With a solar eclipse here over Christmas and lucky Jupiter in his early weeks in your romantic sector by then, it could be that this lunar eclipse had implications you’re not aware of and won’t be until later in the year. As Saturn and Pluto spend their last full month in retrograde motion in your romantic sector they may be feeling a bit battered and bruised. For during the period from mid June to the latter part of July, one by one the Sun, Mercury, Venus and Mars all moved into opposition. This wasn’t as challenging as it has been for some of your cosmic mates, but there is a chance that your romantic confidence took a hit, in which case the first half of August is a chance to lick your wounds and reflect. If you knew how short this period actually was you wouldn’t be so afraid to wallow a little, with something wondrous set to happen. However, with Venus in a nostalgic part of your chart until 21st August, this is also a chance to take a nostalgic trip down love’s memory lane. The turnaround begins with Mars’ return to Virgo on 18th August, followed by Venus, the planet of love’s return on 21st August, the Sun’s return on 23rd August and Mercury’s return on 29th August. Apart from getting your birthday month and new solar year off to an empowered start, this has huge romantic implications. For these are the same planets that moved into opposition with both Saturn and Pluto in your romantic sector over the course of June and July. With Saturn turning direct in your romantic sector next month and Pluto in early October, as each planet returns to Virgo they will eventually move into a friendly aspect to both, kicking off a powerful rebuilding.
