Horoscope for Aries

From the get go romantic and relationship forces are fighting for your attention and each with very good reasons why they should come first. Moving into the week with not only Mercury, planet of communication in your relationship sector but the Moon in your communication sector gives you a chance to get out of the gate with the communication lines open from the get go and with the Moon leaving on Monday this has to be a priority. This is when Venus will call foul, for Monday just happens to be the planet of love's first full day in direct motion in your romantic sector, with the tide having turned over the weekend. This is the point where romantic and relationship forces only get better, yet they face a common enemy in that with life getting busier work/life balance becomes an issue. - by your best friend astrologer

Horoscope for Taurus

From the get go the love gods are lining up for a solar eclipse in your romantic sector over the weekend, an event that in itself is a taste of things to come. In the early days of a huge year for love and all things romantic the love gods are starting by challenging your excuses and as it's been so long since you've had luck and the love gods so active, they're patient as you work to make your life as love friendly as possible. At the same time that you're lining up for the weekend's opportunity to draw a new line in the sand, the early days of the week provide an opportunity to ensure the communication lines are open, especially on the relationship front. With a clear sense of what you want from your relationships and what they need from you, it's now about giving that a voice. - by your best friend astrologer

Horoscope for Gemini

Whether it's Mercury in your romantic sector or Venus and Mars, the planets of love and passion in your communication sector the love gods are on a united mission to give your heart a voice and ensure the communication lines are open, something that heats up this week, for very good reason. With Saturn returning to your relationship sector next week, beginning a relationship journey that will run through to the end of 2017, you're on the brink of a major new relationship journey, something you had a taste of during the first half of the year. While Venus turned direct over the weekend Mercury will turn retrograde next week, between them working to give your heart, relationships, the past and unsaid words a voice. Across the romantic and relationship front it's all about communication. - by your best friend astrologer

Horoscope for Cancer

While the Moon's monthly visit to your sign may create some personal and/or relationship tensions and push some emotional buttons in the early days of the week, the timing couldn't be better. As the Moon moves into opposition with Ceres on Tuesday and with Pluto just before leaving on Wednesday, with both in their final days in retrograde motion in your relationship sector, this provides the right wakeup calls at the right time. In the lead up to not only a New Moon in your communication sector over the weekend but a solar eclipse and with both the Sun and Jupiter focused on communication, this sets the scene for a real breakthrough. With Ceres turning direct next week and Pluto the week after, this is the last wakeup call while the doors are still open to the past. - by your best friend astrologer

Horoscope for Leo

There is a whole new sense of romantic confidence and anticipation in the air this week and a sense that the tide is turning. While it was Venus' direct turn in your sign over the weekend that has shifted your heart's focus onto the future and has seen the tide turn, it's the view she gets that is really getting your heart excited. When Venus first returned to your sign in early June Saturn was in his final days in your romantic sector and retrograded out just 9 days later, yet as she shifts her focus onto the future he's just days away from returning. Due to return next week Saturn will begin some of your most powerful romantic years in decades and a journey that will take until the end of 2017 to run its course. After looking to the past for so long it's time to look to the future. - by your best friend astrologer

Horoscope for Virgo

While it may appear to be another week and another round of personal and/or relationship tension, this time it comes with an opportunity for some real healing. That your relationships are even under pressure in the first place is for all the right reasons, with the birth of a powerful new solar year raising the bar on your own expectations and therefore forcing your relationships to do the same. It's an opposition between the Sun and Chiron, planet of healing that will once more create personal and/or relationship tensions just as you're moving into the weekend, just as the first solar eclipse in Virgo since 2007 brings a chance to take your power back. This is a chance to clear the air in a healing and cathartic way, ahead of a romantic turnaround that begins next week. - by your best friend astrologer

Horoscope for Libra

While still in a social and serendipitous part of your chart where she has been for much of the last 3 months Venus' direct turn over the weekend means that she, the laws of attraction and synchronicity are now focused on the future. Continuing to keep the spirit of romance alive until Ceres returns to your romantic sector next month and still as committed to creating serendipitous moments, there is now new experiences that Venus and the love gods will be focused on. Yet don't be surprised if there is a sense of deja vu in the air, with Venus now travelling the same ground for the third time. Where fate may have tried and failed in the past you're more likely this time around to read the signs. While your romantic focus is now on the future your relationship focus remains on the past. - by your best friend astrologer

Horoscope for Scorpio

The professional gods become even more active and this is the start of a trend that will only intensify, making finding the right balance between work and play essential. The love gods have been challenging your excuses, but it's the Moon's move through an adventurous part of your chart in the early days of the week that brings a sense of romance, adventure and nostalgia together, reminding you that it's all about the journey. Meanwhile, while the Moon's visit to your relationship sector last week and the last opposition with Saturn in your sign for another 27 years is likely to have brought personal and/or relationship tensions to a head, they are unlikely to follow you into the new week, though the opportunity to give your relationships, the past and unsaid words a voice will. - by your best friend astrologer

Horoscope for Sagittarius

As much as Venus' first full day in direct motion should make Monday all about embracing a sense of romance and adventure, which it still is, there is also a need to remain intuitively plugged into your relationships. With the Moon leaving your relationship sector on Monday there's a chance to grab the tail of a visit that dominated the weekend and all the emotional responses this may have triggered. While you don't know it yet, that visit is the last before Saturn returns to your sign and therefore the last until early 2018 that would come with strong personal and/or relationship tensions and wakeup calls. The messages will get much stronger over the coming months, with a need to pay attention while it's still a whisper, but without creating challenges where there are none. - by your best friend astrologer

Horoscope for Capricorn

While Venus' direct turn in a passionate part of your chart over the weekend and her first full day in direct motion on Monday should and will grab your attention from the get go, the Moon's return to your relationship sector will see your relationships also fight for your attention. The danger is that with the Moon likely to be pushing some buttons and Venus offering a chance to embrace your romantic passions with a new sense of enthusiasm, it could be easy to escape into Venus' world and stick your head in the sand when it comes to relationship matters. Yet almost a month to the day after Mars left your relationship sector, where the relationship gods left you with a clear sense of what you want from your relationships and what they need from you, they're back to check on things. - by your best friend astrologer

Horoscope for Aquarius

While romantic and relationship forces will be fighting for your attention from the get go, it's for all the right reasons and together they're able to fight a common foe, with the professional gods beating their drums. Monday is the day for seizing the moment on both the romantic and relationship fronts, with Venus spending her first full day in direct motion in your relationship sector just as the Moon's monthly visit to your romantic sector is wrapping up. It's been nearly 2 months since all the planetary activity in your romantic sector for the year wrapped up and with the Moon leaving on Monday Venus is happy to let relationship matters come second, knowing she has the whole month to get your attention. Yet there is no doubting the tide has turned on the relationship front. - by your best friend astrologer

Horoscope for Pisces

While it's your relationships that have been stealing all your attention and the attention of the love gods of late and that will remain the case for not only the rest of this year but most of 2016, romantic forces get their turn in the early days of the week. The Moon will return to your romantic sector on Monday but will leave on Wednesday, a month to the day since Mars left, wrapping up all the planetary activity for the year. This makes the early days of the week the most important for embracing the spirit of romance and for listening to your heart's emotional responses. Hold onto the spirit of romance once the Moon leaves, for with a solar eclipse in your relationship sector over the weekend it won't be long before your relationships are once more demanding your full attention. - by your best friend astrologer
