The week begins with a mixed blessing. Monday’s New Moon in Leo brings fresh energy to romance, but a troublesome encounter involving Venus, Jupiter, Uranus and Pluto can cause extreme behavior in relationships, especially at the start of the week. Fortunately, harmony, cooperation and passion reemerge by the weekend. Best days for socializing: Friday, Saturday and Sunday.
Aries: As Venus takes a hit from Jupiter and Uranus in your sign, the urge to expand your vistas, in love and in other areas, can make you antsy for an adventure. This can either heat up passion or upset your partner, depending on your situation. This weekend, a delightful mix of love and lust energizes you from Friday through Sunday!
Taurus: You may find yourself questioning and analyzing the future of your love life this week as your Venus ruler collides with some abrasive planetary influences. Working through issues from the past can help clarify your needs and desires concerning love. During the weekend, your allure draws admirers on Saturday, and a rendezvous turns hot on Sunday!

Your artistry inspires romance on Saturday. Feelings are steamy but complicated on Sunday.
Cancer: Your emotional security may feel shaky at the start of the week. A family member may get on your nerves, too.

Leo: The New Moon in your sign can bring a cycle of personal fulfillment, but first you may need to handle a prickly encounter that leaves you feeling misunderstood.

Pisces: The mess of conflicting influences this week might actually produce a breakthrough for you concerning an issue that keeps you from enjoying a deep emotional and sexual connection with someone special.
