Your Love Week – Air Signs:
Ask yourself what you learned from this current upset. This seems to be a repeat love offense on your part. It’s a new week and time for you to be true to yourself. Is he or she really what you’ve been dreaming of or simply someone to fill a void? Regardless of your charm, she or he can see right through your façade and will notice your indifference hidden behind smiles. Remember, “to thine own self be true.” If you’re single, this week brings good opportunities to meet someone new. It’s in your best interests to ask friends to introduce you to a potential match. They’ve been bugging you about this for months anyway, so why not? What do you have to lose? But if this person has certain traits that haven’t jived with you in prior affairs, it isn’t time for selective memory, regardless of whether or not you’re feeling desperate. Never act desperate with something as precious as your love. Value it, treasure it, and love will come, Soon!
Aries, Leo, Sagittarius
You are usually bursting with energy, Fire Signs, but this week your vitality sags a bit and you’ll need rest and relaxation to shore up your stamina. On Tuesday the Sun enters Libra, and brings the Fall Equinox, and you’ll begin to go about your life more slowly than you normally do. This is a good time to take steps to take care of your health and recharge your mental, emotional, and spiritual batteries a bit. You’re in need of some encouragement as your week begins, Fire Signs, but you’ll have to be the one to give yourself a pep talk and a pat on the back! On Tuesday Mercury retrograde conjuncts stern Saturn in Virgo, and you’ll feel a bit distant from your social circle. This is a great time for you to weed through your engagement and address books and make sure you only have listed the names of people with whom you have good rapport and want to interact. On Wednesday the Moon in exuberant Sagittarius sextiles the bright Sun in Libra, and you’ll be ready to make new contacts and broaden your activity schedule. You may decide to sign up for a club or organization that will allow you to have fun and meet new friends. Watch that you don’t become too overbearing with a close friend or family member when Mars, in caring Cancer is quincunx excessive Jupiter in Aquarius. You mean well and want to help guide your associate in dealing with personal issues. That’s great; however, your loved one will view your good intentions as meddling and bossiness if you push too hard, and you don’t want that to happen. You might scout around for a new place to live over the weekend, as the Moon in Capricorn sextiles restless Uranus in Pisces. You’re ready to change the scenery outside your window and bring new energy and experiences to your life. Sunday is the best time to express your love for your family and to get together with relatives you haven’t seen in a while. You’re often so caught up in your busy life that you don’t have a chance to connect with the people who mean the most to you.
Your Love Week – Fire Signs:
You may find that you and your lover are apt to work on rekindling what seems stagnant. Take a deep breath, light a fire, and snuggle up this week. “Exciting” is an understatement! Sparks are flying and will continue to soar. You’ll want to choose your words carefully this week because your lover may be a bit on edge. There’s a fiery aspect that could become explosive if you aren’t careful. This energy will wane throughout the week, and it could be hot if you play your cards right! But take no one at face value; everything has an underlying meaning. The attention that you’re getting from that special someone won’t be consistent, so relish it. That’s no reason to pout, however; just enjoy it for what it is.
Cancer, Scorpio, Pisces
Water Signs, you’ll find it hard to concentrate this week, and your mental energy will be extremely scattered. Your personal power is very important to you, even though you don’t always want to admit it! This week you’ll get in touch with your inner drive to take control of your life, as the Moon in perceptive Scorpio sextiles Pluto on Monday. You have a tendency to repress your more adventurous and daring dreams, and you often hesitate to fulfill all your deepest desires and goals. Now you’ll be ready to push your own hot buttons and emerge from your comfort zone. Hurray for you and your bold new spirit! Wednesday, Mercury retrograde in Virgo opposes erratic Uranus in Pisces, and you’ll undergo a whirlwind of conflicting needs, wants, and desires. You may find it impossible to stay on course in your daily life, and you’ll find yourself rushing around in an effort to be in two places at once.

Conflict with a close associate may loom on Sunday, as the Moon in Capricorn is opposite volatile Mars in moody Cancer. Your friend communicates how he or she feels and thinks in a different way than you do, so keep that in mind as you try to unravel the issues that keep you and your companion apart right now. Remember, your friend believes he or she is being diplomatic, while you feel your associate is beating around the bush and talking in circles. Your friend may not be in a positive frame of mind, and it could be your best bet to simply leave him or her alone for a while.
Your Love Week – Water Signs:
Place all your orderly logic on the back burner this week and take a risk. Make that call! The stars are in your favor. Perhaps a few days away from the daily grind will prove to be very therapeutic for you. Don’t choose the easy way out this week. Remember that challenges build strength. Avoiding the inevitable will only make that certain someone cling to you even more. Be honest! If you don’t want the attention, then say something. Silence is cowardice, and your intention will be misconstrued. It’s best to postpone any serious love discussions. You’ll need all the energy that you can get because at the close of this week, love sweet love is in the air. Enjoy it!
Taurus, Virgo and Capricorn

Hold fast to your inner determination as the Sun in Libra squares powerful Pluto in Capricorn. You may be trying to lose weight or overcome a bad habit, and right now you aren’t seeing the positive results you wanted.

Your Love Week – Earth Signs:
In retrospect, was it all worth it? This is the week to ponder that, because you tend to be a bit wishy-washy about recent affairs of the heart. Remember that those are hearts that you’re toying with, yours and theirs. Also, you reap what you sow. So be kind and honest. The rewards will far outweigh the intensity of the moment of truth. It’s make it or break it time. The wind is blowing, the Equinox brings in Fall, and there is a hushed feeling of anticipation cradling the earth this week. It’s time to let go of all mundane worries and celebrate. Sharing, kindness, and forgiveness prevail, so use this all to your advantage and ask that cutie out. It’s party time! Put on your finest attire and enjoy the camaraderie and cocktails, love and be happy, but at the end of the night remember to call a cab!
