Are you asking the impossible of yourself? Figure out what's realistic when it comes to your romantic life. It's also a good time to establish a boundary between other people's expectations and your own.
AriesMar 21 – Apr 19
This week starts off slowly—not your favorite speed—but just hang in there until sometime Tuesday afternoon, when your love life can jet ahead. Put the pedal to the metal through the middle of the week by flirting all you like. Online or in real time, you're an extra smooth talker now (and extra funny, which equals extra sexy). Save the traditional big date nights, Friday and Saturday, for more low-gear activities (bonding with friends or family looks good). Set a rendezvous for Sunday, though. You're revved up for romance.
Your intuition is your biggest romantic ally when the moon is full in psychic Pisces on September 1. Rely on your instincts and other messages from your subconscious to direct you toward happiness. Your dreams play an important role; don’t ignore the recurring symbolism in them.
Mercury enters beauty-loving Libra on the fifth, and your written and verbal communication becomes more graceful and eloquent. If you’ve been trying to find the right words to tell someone how you feel, they come to you now.
Powerful Mars, your home planet, goes retrograde in your sign on September 9, and you might feel as though you’re losing some of your superpowers. This energy is a lot less forceful than you’re used to, so you’ll have to learn to use charm and finesse rather than sheer force for the next couple months. Luckily, you only have to feel this way once every couple of years!
Mercury leaves gracious Libra for intense, secretive Scorpio on the twenty-seventh, at which point you feel confident and alluring. If you’re trying to get to know someone new, you know exactly the right questions to ask to get them to open up. When they try to do the same, however, it’s a different story. You’re much more of a closed book now than usual.
