The love planets Venus and Mars come together, a union that happens only once every two years. The most important thing about this current conjunction in my view is that it’s serious. Virgo is not associated with being flighty or insincere. New relationships started at this time, especially if there’s been a long running attraction with one or both parties being super cautious, carry the hallmark of success.

Jupiter can work in disguise in the classic “clouds with silver linings” way. Even a rock bottom moment can actually turn out to be a liberation, the thing that makes us wake up and decide on change for the better. In terms of progress and results, and getting things back into manageable proportions, we can expect to see definite movement this week.
Venus and Mars together are known as the love planets – women are from Venus, men are from Mars! There are times when the differences between the two sexes are more obvious than others and this week is one of them.
Mercury/Venus combinations are generally very positive and are great for love talk, money talk, heart to hearts of any kind, making connections or finding answers, but the actual effects or outcomes may yet be delayed a while.
This week we have to expect even the minor hassles of life to be accentuated as the path that Venus is now treading is strewn with rubble and does rather feel like an obstacle course, especially as her first aspect of the sequence is followed by the Lunar Eclipse.
