August 2 - August 8, 2021
Another week and there is even more focus on matters of the heart, as Mars joins Venus to spend his first full week in your romantic sector. Last year Venus didn't return until late October and Mars didn't return at all but three weeks before the Sun is due to turn the solar spotlight onto matters of the heart the planets of love and passion are already on the job. It was over the weekend and into the early hours of the new week that the Moon is not only helping to boost your romantic confidence but is amplifying a mix of nostalgia, romance, passion and adventure that is a taste of things to come. It was the Moon's return to Taurus over the weekend, friendly aspect to both Venus and Mars and then to Pluto, in retrograde motion in an adventurous part of your chart before leaving on Monday that mirrors what lies ahead but on a much larger scale. On Tuesday a friendly aspect between Venus and Uranus in Taurus sets the scene for serendipitous moments and/or encounters.
