The skies are ushering in a bright new chapter on all things love and relationships. With Venus and the Sun dancing together all week before taking a monumental bow next weekend, you’ll be asked to consider where we’re at, and where we’re going. What’s working for you right now? What are you ready to release? And how do you want to move forward? Whatever you’ve been carrying that’s been throwing you off balance – emotionally, materially, spiritually – now is the time to let it go, and move on. Facing the truth may be momentarily scary, but ultimately you’ll feel lighter, long term.

ARIES AND ARIES RISING

When it comes to your other half (or potential other half), there’s been no shortage of developments – maybe even drama – recently. This week you get the chance to wipe the slate clean and begin again. Do you need a relationship reset? A Hinge profile overhaul? A little romantic spring cleaning will help reboot for a fresh romantic chapter. Don’t miss your opportunity to start with a new intention.

TAURUS AND TAURUS RISING

With your ruling planet (Venus) starting a brand new cycle this week, there’s the chance for you to say a fond farewell to something – or someone. Take stock of your health and the way you manage your calendar for clues on what you should be letting go. Prioritise balance in your day to day life and treat your body like it’s your best friend.

GEMINI AND GEMINI RISING

Ready to start again? There’s BIG makeover vibes this week around your sex life. If you’re single, Friday’s skies mark the beginning of a brand new chapter. It could be a new hook-up or a new perspective on who you choose to get close to. Regardless of your marital status, lash out on some outrageously impractical lingerie to celebrate your sexy new chapter.

CANCER AND CANCER RISING

This week the sky is inviting you to turn over a new leaf. If you’ve been playing go-between or worse, surrogate parent, in a domestic drama of late, now is the time to figure out if this is a role you want to continue. Set a new goal for how you want to express yourself in relationships with family, and envision what a new “normal” that feels healthy and balanced might look like.

LEO AND LEO RISING

How often do you take stock of the way your inner critic. This week as Venus meets up with the Sun, you’re being guided to reflect on the way you speak to – and about – yourself. Maybe you’ve got a habit of saying “sorry” without realising, or maybe you’re hard on your appearance. Taking time to notice, and set an intention on how you can show yourself a little more TLC on a daily basis will be time well spent.

VIRGO AND VIRGO RISING

There’s been plenty of action around your finances recently and this week you’re getting the chance for a do-over. Does your spending align with your values? Does your spending make you feel valued? They’re big, somewhat esoteric questions, but they’re worth considering as Venus begins a brand new cycle and presents an opportunity to put your money where your values are.

LIBRA AND LIBRA RISING

You’re hard wired to worry about what other people might be thinking, but how are you feeling about your body right now? This week try to complete one simple yet symbolic act to show your body you care. Mirror work (reciting affirmations in front of your reflection) could be especially healing. If the thought of saying something nice to yourself in front of the mirror terrifies you, consider it an alarm bell that there’s some healing to be done.

SCORPIO AND SCORPIO RISING

When it comes to holding a grudge, you’re up there with some of the zodiacs most adept. This week consider how letting go of some deeply held, maybe not even conscious, resentment could make you feel more balanced. With the planet of diplomacy and relationships getting a reboot, like it or not, you’re being prompted by the sky to play nice with the people you like the least.

SAGITTARIUS AND SAGITTARIUS RISING

Whether you’re building bridges or making new friends, there’s a sense of social swagger about this week. With the sun and Venus signalling a fresh start around your platonic relationships, there’s never been a better time to let bygones be bygones. Reflect on what needs to be said or done to instil a greater sense of peace in your social life.

CAPRICORN AND CAPRICORN RISING

In the wise words of Khloe Kardashian, you meet the same people on the way up as you do on the way down. If there’s healing, forgiveness or moving on to be done in your work life, this week is the moment to quit putting it off. Who do you need to start afresh with? While it may not seem as important, learning how to manage up is just as important as learning how to lead a team.

AQUARIUS AND AQUARIUS RISING

Are you ready to get out of your comfort zone? This week, the sky beckons you to set a goal to explore something – or maybe someone – totally out there. No need to skip town just yet but make a pact with yourself to broaden your horizons Seeking pleasure, connection and understanding through travel, or by exploring something totally foreign will refill your cup in more ways than one.

PISCES AND PISCES RISING

It’s time to even the playing field. How you share your space, your energy, even your cash is up for negotiation this week as the sun and Venus encourage you to lean in and renegotiate your territory. Getting what you need without being pushy is entirely possible. This week, subtlety over bulldozer tactics will help you secure your most precious resources.
