HOROSCOPES

Love + Relationship

Horoscope for Aries

The whole of September is being dominated by a battle between romantic and relationship forces, each trying to get your attention and there is very good reason why both are pulling out every trick in the book, realising that they have some fierce competition. Venus, now in her second full week in direct motion in your romantic sector is feeding off Mars' romantic passions and fighting spirit and due to leave next week there is a new sense of urgency in the air. Venus, Mars and the spirit of romance have a huge amount of momentum behind them and with Venus leaving next month a massive romantic chapter is now coming to an end. Yet with Mercury turning retrograde in your relationship sector on Friday and the Sun returning next week your relationships are only now coming into their own. - by your best friend astrologer

Horoscope for Taurus

Until the Moon leaves your romantic sector on Monday the weekend's solar eclipse is still in effect and the consequences game changing. The first solar eclipse in your romantic sector with Jupiter on board since 1968 has unleashed the elements of fate and luck and with the last real roadblock having also been cleared, there is likely to be a new sense of confidence and determination in the air. While you might not realise it at the time what you have as you move into the new week is the beginnings of a major new romantic journey. However, with Saturn leaving your relationship sector on Friday and not returning for another 27 years, even without the Moon's return midweek there's also a need to make your relationships a priority, though here too it's all about the journey from this point on. - by your best friend astrologer

Horoscope for Gemini

Due to turn retrograde in your romantic sector on Friday, the same day that Saturn returns to your relationship sector Mercury is in need of a helping hand and gets it, with the Moon's return on Monday. The Moon will play a vital role in developments on the romantic and relationship fronts this week, seeming to show up at the right place at the right time. Returning to your romantic sector on Monday and leaving on Thursday, Mercury's last full day in direct motion, this will ensure the spirit of romance and your heart's emotional responses are paying attention as the doors open to second chances, especially to giving your heart, the past and unsaid words a voice. The Moon's return to your relationship sector will ensure your emotional responses are engaged as a major new journey begins. - by your best friend astrologer

Horoscope for Cancer

While this is an important week for matters of the heart, especially when it comes to the decisions that will impact your approach to love moving forward, something special is developing on the relationship front. With Saturn leaving your romantic sector on Friday and not due to return for another 27 years there is no doubt that this is a week for making matters of the heart a priority, but his job is to lay down the foundations for your approach to love moving forward, both in terms of what you expect from love and what love expects from you in return. With plenty of support on the way, the romantic journey will continue, just with different captains at the helm. In the meantime, a turnaround begins on the relationship front this week, with some major support from communication forces. - by your best friend astrologer

Horoscope for Leo

From the get go there is likely to be a sense of romantic confidence and anticipation in the air with Venus in her second week in direct motion in your sign as Saturn returns to your romantic sector on Friday to kick off some of the most powerful years for matters of the heart and all things romantic in decades. Yet in the early days of the week there's a chance first to give your relationships and emotional responses a voice as the Moon returns to your communication sector to help Mercury, planet of communication out in his final days in direct motion, before turning retrograde here on Friday. With relationship forces coming back into play next month, having the communication lines open is essential. Yet by the weekend it's matters of the heart that will want your full attention. - by your best friend astrologer

Horoscope for Virgo

There has been a real breakthrough over the weekend that has finally got any relationship tensions out in the open, in a way that leaves you with a clear sense of what you want from your relationships and what they need from you. With both planets in your relationship sector here for the long haul and both in retrograde motion, key now is working to ensure the communication lines remain open and with Saturn leaving your communication sector on Friday, that has to happen now. While this is something you're in control of and having real and authentic connecting is a choice, on its own volition a romantic turnaround is taking place, beginning with Ceres' direct turn in your romantic sector on Tuesday. This is just the start of a real romantic comeback over the coming weeks. - by your best friend astrologer

Horoscope for Libra

While the Moon's return to your sign on Monday may put some pressure on your relationships, with the Moon moving into opposition with Uranus, in retrograde motion in your relationship sector, the timing couldn't be better nor the outcome. This will see the Moon team up with Mercury in his final days in direct motion, with a chance to ensure the communication lines are open before the third and final Mercury retrograde phase of 2015 begins. Mercury is turning retrograde before he can move into opposition with relationship forces, with a real clash between personal and relationship forces not coming until a total lunar eclipse in your relationship sector later in the month, but what the Moon does is flush any issues out, at the very time that you'll find it easiest to find your voice. - by your best friend astrologer

Horoscope for Scorpio

Both your romantic and relationship realities get a boost this week, though in a subtle way that is more likely to present as a sense of confidence that comes from nothing you can put your finger on. It was late last week that the Sun brought some brutal wakeup calls to romantic forces with an opposition with Chiron, planet of healing, in retrograde motion in your romantic sector likely to have pushed some old buttons or released some painful old memories. Yet this is already easing, leaving a sense of healing in its wake that has allowed you to lay some old ghosts to rest. What your heart and the spirit of romance can sense is that this was the last of the harsh wakeup calls. At the same time your relationships get a boost from Ceres' direct turn in your communication sector on Tuesday. - by your best friend astrologer

Horoscope for Sagittarius

With the help of Mars as she moves into her second week in direct motion in an adventurous part of your chart Venus is filled with a new sense of enthusiasm. While Venus won't leave until the 9th October and due to play a special role in supporting romantic forces during a total lunar eclipse in your romantic sector later in the month, Mars leaves next week and it's his passion for adventure and a hunger for life's richer experiences that is giving you the confidence and courage to start taking some bold leaps of faith. With life becoming even more professionally focused and your professional star on the rise, keeping the spirit of romance and adventure alive is a must. Yet even now Venus and Mars are preparing for their departure, bringing home a reminder that it's all about the journey. - by your best friend astrologer

Horoscope for Capricorn

With all the planetary activity in your relationship sector for the year behind you and a clear sense of what you want from your relationships and what they need from you, the relationship gods are not only focused on the journey itself but on keeping the communication lines open. While a lunar eclipse in your communication sector later in the month will bring a chance for a communication breakthrough there's a practice run in the early days of this week, with just enough pressure to force you to work that little bit harder. In the meantime, the main focus of the love gods is on fuelling your romantic passions, with Mars leaving a passionate part of your chart next Friday and Venus early next month. Until then Venus and Mars are committed to lighting a bonfire under your romantic passions. - by your best friend astrologer

Horoscope for Aquarius

As she moves into her second week in direct motion in your relationship sector Venus, planet of love is starting to gain some speed, but any urgency is coming from Mars, who is due to leave next Friday and not return until 2017. Your relationships have been on an incredible journey since Jupiter first returned in July 2014 and as the last planets standing Venus and Mars, the planets of love and passion are determined to put your relationships on the track they will continue on. You've had the reality checks and the relationship gods have invested enough over the last 14 months to leave you with a clear sense of what you want from your relationships and what they need from you. It was the Moon's visit late last week that has left you with a clear sense of what you're fighting for. - by your best friend astrologer

Horoscope for Pisces

You'll not only move into the week with the Moon in your relationship sector but until leaving on Monday the weekend's solar eclipse is still in play, with a chance to draw a major new line in the sand. This is the first solar eclipse in your relationship sector since 2007 and while as an eclipsing New Moon this was always going to be an opportunity for a fresh start, new beginnings and a chance to commit to your relationships, the future and the journey ahead, it's been 47 years since Jupiter has also been on board. The weekend also saw personal and/or relationship tensions come to a head, but in a way that has finally got everything out in the open. With the Sun in his last full week in your relationship sector, Mars returning next week and Venus early next month the journey continues. - by your best friend astrologer
