If you’ll that your love life has gotten dull, that’s about to change! Put on your seat belt, Cancer, because this week brings a number of aspects that will energize your romantic future—maybe in ways you’re not expecting.
First off, lusty Mars enters your house of adventure on Monday, its first visit here in two years. Needless to say this is one smokin’ hot aspect. Romantic Neptune is already there, so the weeks ahead could be amorous indeed. But there’s one teeny-tiny hitch: Mercury goes retrograde the same day in your house of commitment.
This means that issues from your past may rear their heads, which could result in volatility. For example, if you and a lover haven’t been able to agree on getting married, the subject can return now, with all of the drama that surrounded it before. More, actually, with Mars in Pisces, as emotions like jealousy and resentment could bubble to the surface. Your freedom may start becoming more important to you if a relationship is rocky.
With Mercury retrograde old lovers could reappear on the scene. Listen, the holiday season makes a lot of people yearn for some kind of a connection with a lover, but it’s not your responsibility to take back exes who weren’t right for you before. If you want to be charitable give money instead to the Salvation Army.
To make matters more dramatic, the Sun enters your commitment sector on Wednesday for four weeks. So you have a situation in which El Sol may make you anxious to either find a serious partner or get closer to an existing one, just as Mercury is telling you to slow down and reflect first.
The smartest thing that you can do is to take your time before you make any major decisions about love. Resolve issues from the past that need to be settled for good. Don’t rush into a new relationship. With Mars in your highly independent ninth house, the temptation to walk away from a relationship if things aren’t working out could be strong; don’t be too hasty.
And despite the fact that the holiday season usually brings a big slow down in business, this year the cosmos delivers an action packed week from this Saturday, the 24th, all the way through to the 30th. This Friday or Saturday you could hear about a job opening, get a call from a potential client, or send your resume to someone who could be interested in talking with you about your talents. This could pop up very quickly, so don’t ignore your e-mail account between now and New Year’s.
