This week, the universe conspires to slow you down so that you can build greater stability and security within yourself and your romantic relationship. At the start of the week, Mercury in Taurus will help you formulate plans, talk things through and feel like you can be more logical and thoughtful when approaching romantic themes. Mercury rules communication, and in Taurus, persistence and patience are two important qualities within your relationship.


This will set the tone for the days ahead as you are encouraged to take your time to not only build what will last but to make any decisions that you are considering. The Libra Full Moon highlights partnerships and reciprocity within your romantic life. While Libra is peace-loving and seeks harmony, sometimes at all costs Sun, Jupiter and Chiron will all be in Aries. Aries is Libra’s sister sign and helps to bring in a sense of balance where you can honor your truth and needs and not sacrifice yourself for the expense of another, especially in a relationship. As Jupiter and Chiron sit together, there is an enormous opportunity for healing as you evaluate how your wounds prevent you from showing up in the healthiest way possible within your relationship.

With Mercury in Taurus here, there is a sense that what arises will have to be worked through at your own pace but that it provides an opportunity for a deeper and more stable connection – of course if it is a healthy one that exists. Later in the week, two sextiles will occur, which will help create the opportunity for sensuality, joy and important conversations as Mercury in Taurus will align with Mars in Cancer and Venus with Taurus with Neptune in Pisces. Not only is the week ahead one that holds healing and growth but also moments of simple joy.

Mercury in Taurus


Mercury, the planet that governs and rules communication, joins Venus in Taurus today. Mercury in Taurus is an expert at practicing patience to achieve its desired results. Plans take longer to come together under this energy, but that is only because they are being built in the most stable way possible. Mercury in Taurus is also highly committed to its plans and anything it feels deeply connected to. In relationships, this becomes a grounded and long-term energy that will help create a more profound connection and sense of intimacy. Alongside Venus in this sign, this week is about committing to the relationship you want to continue nurturing long-term.

The Full Moon in Libra

The Full Moon in Libra rises today opposite the Aries Sun, focusing on which relationships you choose to invest within and how you show up for that process. Libra rules relationships, specifically those that feel like balanced partnerships. At the same time, Sun, Jupiter and Chiron in Aries will help you heal as you see the truth of your choices and give you the power to choose differently. 

In relationships, the wounds you carry can affect your decision about who you partner with and how you show up for the relationship. However, Chiron also teaches that your wounds need not be why you feel unhappy or loved. Instead, you have the power to heal yourself and your relationship. Jupiter is a magnifier of what already exists, whether it is an amazing relationship or one your more wounded self chose. During this Full Moon, you will have all the information necessary to align yourself to the person and life you are growing into, allowing you to shed unhealthy relationships and step more deeply into those that align with your soul.

Mars in Cancer

Mars in Cancer will sextile Mercury in Taurus, creating the feeling that two are truly better than one and helping you focus on how collectively you are better within your relationship if it is a partnership. The second is Venus in Taurus, will sextile Neptune in Pisces. This transit brings sensuality, romance and even a greater appeal of attraction. Normally, it may also bring some idealistic views as Neptune only wants to see what is hopeful; however, with Saturn in Pisces, much of this is moderated. You should be able to keep your feet on the ground even if your heart wants to sail into the clouds.
