Venus/Mars conjunctions are the most romantic stellar combinations you can have — except for when they come together in Aries. The passion tends to be all physical, a touch mental and almost never emotional. That's because Aries is a fire sign, so the love burns hot in the moment like a match and goes out just as quickly. Nevertheless, spring flings are fun and if you don't take things too seriously, you can wind up having the time of your life.
ARIES (March 20-April 18)
You think like a guy. That's why you get along with them so well. However your guilty secret is that you love like a guy, too, which explains your take-it-or-leave-it attitude about relationships. This will be in full force during the run up to the Venus/Mars conjunction in Aries on Saturday. Ironically it's the guy you're seeing who will want to talk about his feelings while you glance about nervously. It's OK if you're not that into him, but let him down gently.
TAURUS (April 19-May 19)
It looks like you're pretty angry — and with good reason. But you don't want to do anything retaliatory. The planets can take on the character of schoolchildren in a playground when they gather together in one corner of the sky like this — riling you up and egging you on to do something that you'll regret. Resist the impulse to get back at someone who did you wrong on Tuesday and you'll be able to look at yourself in the mirror on Wednesday morning.
GEMINI (May 20-June 19)
You enjoy his friends, you really do. They're lively, engaging people and you always have a fun time when you go out. But do you really have to do everything in a group? Obviously you don't want to compete with them for his time and attention (you'd lose), but you can start setting up play dates of your own where it's just him and you. Start with this Thursday night. It could become a regular night if you play your cards right.
CANCER (June 20-July 21)
You keep saying that you want someone in your life, but what if you don't? Looking for love in all the wrong places is just as much a strategy of avoidance as trundling out all of your anxieties and insecurities on your first date and watching him turn pale. You might be better off admitting that you don't know what you want and then see what the Universe delivers? You could be pleasantly surprised.
LEO (July 22-Aug. 21)
On Saturday night, Mars and Venus will form a conjunction at 19 degrees Aries which is the exact degree of the sun's exaltation. Translation? It doesn't get better than this when it comes to finding the love of your life. Chances are you already know who it is. And chances are it's complicated. Don't let that stop you from being together because he wants it as much as you do.
VIRGO (Aug. 22-Sept. 21)
You caught a tiger by the tail and are being taken for the ride of your life. Enjoy it while it lasts because it all comes to a scintillating climax on April 6. This is when you will come back down to earth and will be ready to return to life as "normal." However, you may be surprised to hear from him again on the 10th. Is it withdrawal or something more? Couldn't hurt to see.
LIBRA (Sept. 22-Oct. 21)
You were born in the zodiac sign of marriage, so you will do everything in your power to keep your relationship together. But sometimes you can get so caught up in your idea of what that's supposed to be that you lose sight of him — and you — in the process. You need to have a heart-to-heart talk with your partner on the 4th and 5th. He wants to help shoulder the burden, not add to it.
SCORPIO (Oct. 22-Nov. 20)
You say that it takes time to build trust, but in truth, those deflector shields were lowered a long time ago. What you're trying to figure out is who's going to wear the pants in the relationship. You want him to — and you'll even make him feel like he's in control — but let's face it: You're never going to let go of that veto power. There's nothing wrong with that as long as you don't flaunt it or try to pretend otherwise.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 21-Dec. 20)
You may be surprised to discover that there's more to your fling than you thought. In fact, he may throw you for a loop on Monday with his talk of future plans. Listen and smile, but don't say anything. People are still promising more than what they can deliver with the current lineup of planets passing through the passionate sign of Aries. You'll want to wait until April 19 before you begin to take any of this seriously. Meanwhile have fun!
CAPRICORN (Dec. 21-Jan. 18)
Is what they're saying true? Is that cute colleague or hot client really interested in you? Being a staunch Capricorn, you never mix business with pleasure, but seeing as you're at the office practically 24/7, where else do you think you're going to find love? It's time to remember that your career doesn't require that you take a vow of celibacy. Yes, things might get complicated should the two of you hit it off, but then again, that is what falling in love is all about.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 19-Feb. 17)
If that fellow is "in love" with you, then he sure has a strange way of showing it. Unfortunately guys tend to act like spazzes when there's this much fiery energy coursing through the heavens. Mars in Aries always bumps it up a notch with the sabre rattling, the bluster and the machismo. This also includes acting like he doesn't care when he does. Give him the cold shoulder this week and you'll find him warming up by the weekend.
PISCES (Feb. 18-March 19)
It took a while to get to the place where you feel ready to take a chance on love again. You've done your healing and you're ready to go. This is why you may be surprised by the sudden case of cold feet on Tuesday. You have the Moon occult Pluto to blame for the unexpected wave of insecurity. The Moon (known for its changing moods) is also the quickest moving planet in the sky so you'll feel better by Friday. It's time to get back into circulation.
