As a 9-to-5 girl-on-the-job whose weekdays are all work and no play, I really, really, really, really, really look forward to romancing my way through the weekends.
Weekend’s typically are the only time I have a chance to go out on “real” dates with my boyfriend, sleep in and cuddle and just spend quality time together that isn’t possible during the busy work week.
And so, because I place so much importance on our weekend time together, I always read the Weekend Love Horoscope with a bit of trepidation. I don’t ever want to hear that the cosmos has anything in store for us that doesn’t include passionate kisses, hand-holding and gazing into each other’s eyes with matching idiotic grins.
Well, I guess I’m partly in luck this weekend. Friday’s planetary alignment gives the weekend a wild start, with the Moon in Scorpio and the Sun making stressful aspects to Pluto and Uranus. Basically, this is emotionally intense and it could definitely lead to that passionate kissing I spoke of.
But there is some dangerous energy here, too. I’m going to need to be very careful about not penting any frustration because feelings are at risk of exploding on Friday night. I’m going to do my best to avoid discussing anything too heavy while there’s a chance my words could misfire.
See, this is why the horoscope is so helpful. Now I know to wait until the Moon moves into happy-go-lucky Sagittarius on Saturday to mention that he forgot our anniversary. Wish me luck with that.

Love planet Venus went direct in my personal Sun sign of Gemini yesterday, and that means we’re all going to want to make plenty of mental connections when it comes to romance.
This is likely going to affect me and my Gemini brethren the most, but pretty much anyone in love with love is going to want to talk for hours, flirt and giggle and ask lots of questions. Venus in Gemini is a lighthearted transit when it comes to love, and I’ll take it!
Of course, in my own birth chart, Venus is in earthy Taurus, which means my personal preference when it comes to romance is much more grounded.
Venus in Taurus is sensual and affectionate, and very practical. We take our relationships seriously, and we also take our need to cuddle up in bed with our partner seriously — especially if a pizza is involved.
When I learned I have Venus in Taurus, it was like a love lightbulb going off in my head — OF COURSE, I thought. This is why I’m not as flirty and lighthearted in love, and I’m more interested in developing long-term relationships than some airy Gemini can be.
See where Venus is in your birth chart and study up on it! It’s fun to find out if you’re the kind who likes love filled with passion and fire (hello, Venus in Aries!) or if you’re more on the nurturing side, like Venus in Cancer.

My favorite planet is making news today. Venus, the planet of love, relationships and beauty, is going direct after a month and half in retrograde motion.
Matters of the heart have been complicated during this time — feelings were conflicted and nothing seemed to move forward. There was a lot of over-thinking and analyzing and churning and fretting. Do I really want to be with this person? Are they right for me? Do I deserve more?
I’m not speaking of myself, per se. This indecisiveness in love is universal when Venus is retrograde. But now that Venus is going direct, we’ll be able to see our relationships clearly for what they are so we can decide — finally — what to do.
At least I hope so. Limbo is lame. And don’t forget, Saturn (which was also retrograde from February 7 to June 25) went direct this week, too, and that planet is also a key decision maker.
With serious Saturn and loving Venus both moving direct now, I can’t help but think that we’re going to start taking our love lives more seriously — and if our partners won’t, we might just call it a day.
Of course, I also think of Venus as “The Planet of Hair,” so it’s likely we might also call the hairdresser and get a killer new ‘do. Some decisions are easy, right?

Saturn, which has been retrograde since February 7, finally went direct yesterday (Monday, June 25), and frankly it’s killing my buzz — but just a little.
Saturn is known as the planet of karma and life lessons, so whenever it’s retrograde we get a little break from taking life too seriously. So I guess the fun is over. That’s the not-so-good-news.
The good news is that Saturn is going direct in the loving and balanced sign of Libra this time, so our life lessons now will at least be gentler.
We may not notice Saturn’s forward-moving energy dramatically. But we can expect to feel a little bit more urgency about our issues and our life’s direction than we have in the past few months.
I think it’s especially interesting that Saturn is going direct just before love planet Venus also goes direct on Wednesday, June 27. The combined effect of the karma planet and the love planet both beginning to move forward again will certainly put a focus on relationships.
For couples who’ve been working through issues or deciding whether to stay together or separate, the decision could very well be made this week!
