It's sex for sex sake and you can forget about dressing it up in romantic hopes, soul mate wishes and fairy tale endings. Cynical maybe? Perhaps. But Venus' opposition to Jupiter in Cancer (which will take place this week and then again on Feb. 1) shows that even the most jaded heart carries inside its secret chamber the soul of a closet romantic. How this emerges and the way that it will go on to transform your life is a story that only the next nine weeks can tell.
LEO (July 22 – Aug. 21)
You are feeling wildly romantic with the sun moving through that part of your solar chart that pertains to affairs of the heart. If you haven't found someone new by now, then you will by year's end, so you'll want to be out and about. It's been a long time since you felt this electrifying, excited and exhilarated. And there's every reason to hope for the best with Jupiter giving this flush of romance more staying power than would usually be the case. This will prove to be a magical holiday season.
