On the love front the year starts slowly; nothing special one way or another – a static kind of period. But, as we mentioned, on August 11 Jupiter enters your 7th house and things start to warm up. You enter one of the most socially active periods in your life. The last time Jupiter was on your 7th house was twelve years ago, so it’s been a while since you’ve had this kind of aspect.
As our regular readers know, Jupiter in the 7th house is a classic love indicator. In many cases, it shows a literal marriage, but not always. Sometimes you enter a relationship that is ‘like’ a marriage: something committed and serious. In general, there will be more parties, weddings and social invitations happening.
What I like here is why you are meeting influential kinds of people, people above you in social and professional status. This seems a romantic turn-on in the year ahead. Love is more practical now. You want the good provider, the person who can help you career wise, the person of power, and there is nothing wrong with that. However, one has to be careful not to get involved in marriages or relationships of convenience. Love should be the main consideration.
Aside from love, the year ahead seems more sexually active than usual. Perhaps too much so. Access, not black, is the problem here.
If you are single, working towards your first, second or third marriage, marriage or a serious relationship is placed on the cards. If you are now married the marriage should be more romantic than usual.
Romantic opportunities happen at work or as you pursue your health goals, with co-workers or people had an affair with your health. You have the aspects for an office romance this year. As we mentioned, love is more realistic this year. Love is shown through being in the interests of the beloved – doing for the beloved. This is why you show love; this is how you feel loved.
Romance can also happen in religious or educational settings (especially after August 11) – at your place of worship, or college or graduate school. Elders, parents or parent figures and bosses are playing Cupid in the year ahead.
Your love planet is Mercury. Only the moon moves faster than him. Thus there are many short-term love trends in the year ahead, depending on where mercury is and the aspects he receives. These are best addressed in the monthly reports.
