Jun 21 – Jul 22

If you feel like you could stay up all night dancing, why not host something crazy like a funk party? Blow off all that pent-up energy – you end up exhausted, but totally refreshed.

If you feel like holing up and putting matters of the heart on the back burner at the beginning of the week, well, why not? Recharging your batteries and getting back in balance on a personal level is never a bad idea. When you get back into the swing of things – maybe around Thursday or Friday – you should be able to respond to a romantic situation with a good mix of heart and mind, rather than overreact emotionally or get too analytical. By the weekend, you're sitting pretty; the way you're relating to others, whether you're coupled up or solo, is lovely indeed.

When love goddess Venus turns retrograde on October 5, your love life gets put on hold while you think about your next move. Romantic events that can’t be canceled might not turn out exactly the way you hoped, but you’ll just have to roll with the ups and downs if postponing isn’t an option.

Your attempts at controlling every situation fall flat during the sun-Pluto square on the twelfth, but that doesn’t mean your love life is completely unmanageable. Make a mental note of what you can and cannot change on your own.

The Mercury-Venus conjunction on October 15 is a very expressive time, but don’t expect all your outpourings of emotion to be returned promptly - or at all. Everyone works at their own pace. Because Venus is still retrograde, you might not immediately get back what you put in.

The sun spends time in kindred emotional water sign Scorpio starting on the twenty-third, so you might be more emotive than usual. Committed partners could be taken by surprise by how demonstrative you are out in public, but they have no idea what they’re in for once you’re alone together! Single Crabs are feeling passionate as well, but you require some level of commitment before agreeing to any romantic activity.
