So, gee, what could it possibly mean when the two planets that rule pretty much everything having to do with relationships are both so strong and so powerful? It means that if you haven't been getting any good lovin' in 2010, now's the time. And no matter your relationship status – whether you're single and dateless or married and miserable – Venus and Jupiter can help. BUT WAIT...THERE'S MORE! 1. Venus will be retrograde from October 7th until November 18th. 2. Jupiter is already retrograde (and has been since July 24th) and stays that way until the very same date – November 18th. When planets are retrograde, they become stronger for developing the skills and insights of what that planet's about – doing the work on the inside to get the lessons to change our lives for the better on the outside. So a retrograde Venus and a retrograde Jupiter – both in high dignity by being in such powerful signs – is absolutely the ideal time for a woman to learn how to make her dreams of love come true. Think of it like you've now got not one, but two fairy godmothers helping you find your prince and magically transform your life from dreary to dazzling! ...Or make that guy you once thought was your prince feel like he's royal once again – and not just a royal pain! So if you're single, it's now time to mingle. And if you're already part of a couple, it's now time to ramp up your connection. HOW TO USE THIS TIME TO INCREASE YOUR MOJO. Since Venus rules relationships, and Libra is the sign of partnership, you can make big improvements in your love life these next four months – no matter what your relationship status. And since Jupiter is the most spiritual of all the planets – bringing higher wisdom, faith, and answers from "on high" – and Venus is all about romance and pleasure, this magical combination is best for learning about spiritual love. Spiritual love is that kind of connection where you and a man “just know” you’re right for each other – the kind of love that makes him feel you’re “it” in his soul...so that he never wants to let you go. In my free love and astrology newsletter, I share the unique insights of Vedic astrology along with real-world relationship advice to help you discover your romantic destiny and make the most of it. I’ll teach you how to recognize spiritual love and how to give a man that “meant to be” feeling.
