A lot happens in a month and therefore, there is a lot to pack into your Monthly Love Horoscope Forecast…First up, there are the Moon’s phases, secondly, there are planets moving into different signs, known in the trade as ingresses, and then of course there are retrogrades, when planets ebb backwards. Now to pick through all this to get to the nuggets that are really important to Love and Romance, takes quite a bit of weighing things up. In fact, weighting is a very real process in astrology, deciding which influences have the greater impact.
Aries 21 March - 20 April
This is going to be a month when your desire to have everything running in a very exact, precise and efficient way is going to be challenged by the more ethereal and dreamy influence of Neptune. Now, you may wonder what this has to do with love, but the reality is that there can be a lot of subtle distortion around communications. Greater clarity is though possible from the 23rd.
Taurus 21 April - 21 May
The Full Moon on the 6th of this month sees a conjunction with Neptune. This is going to arouse your romantic aspirations in a very powerful way. If you're single, expect to do a degree of dreaming about the type of ideal partner or lifestyle you'd like. But if you do encounter someone you really like, from the 5th to the 12th is a fabulous opportunity to transform your situation dramatically.
Gemini 22 May - 21 June
The great news for you Gemini is that your ruler Mercury goes direct on the 5th. Venus also continues in a spectacular location through to the 20th, one which can see you use your word skills to great effect. But for all of this month there is going to be the potential for what we say to be misinterpreted. So whilst charm will come easily, it's going to be important to be very precise too.
Cancer 22 June - 23 July
You're known as the zodiac sign of emotion due to your ruler, the Moon. Your sensitivities, which are very much part of your being, are going to be amplified hugely on the back of the Full Moon on the 6th. Your creativity and artistry can flourish on the back of this, though you may find more mundane parts of life more challenging. A huge step forward can be made in the last week, however.
Leo 24 July - 23 August
The first week of September can see you a little bit frustrated. And however much you seek clear information, it may be in short supply. The Full Moon on the 6th also asks you to proceed with caution for the rest of the month when it comes to finances and certainly joint monetary affairs. But don't underestimate your sex appeal which is going to radiate out strongly. Life speeds up from the 23rd.
Virgo 24 August - 23 September
As Mars joins your zodiac sign on the 5th, and the Sun in Virgo links brilliantly through to the 12th with Pluto, on the face of it you can take a firm grip of your life direction. The last week can also be highly significant in thrusting forwards. But to truly make progress you both need to be highly sensitive to others, but also paradoxically not be too affected by what they say to you Virgo.
Libra 24 September - 23 October
Your ruler Venus remains in a truly magnetic zone through to the 20th, and this is going to help you to interact with others, and potentially through social situation or friendship, see someone new emerging. However, if you're in a relationship which is less gratifying to you at the moment, the little things that you have been tolerating could seem to become much more burdensome.
Scorpio 24 October - 22 November
You can be quite a wary individual, and don't necessarily easily let your guard down when it comes to getting to know people. But this part of you may set up some kind of dilemma this month. Why? Well, because someone could be impacting on your senses more and more, but you may find yourself going from a desire to be open to this, to a concern of how real it may be.
Sagittarius 23 November - 21 December
What do you really want from your love life Sagittarius? That's going to be the telling question this month. If you're someone who is closely in touch with how you feel about things, this will be less of a challenge, but if you're more orientated towards your career and ambitions, it may be possible to lose sight of what's really important in terms of intimacy and closeness around a relationship.
Capricorn 22 December - 20 January
Communications are going to be incredibly important this month Capricorn, not least with the Full Moon of the 6th dancing with the nebulous vibes of Neptune, a planet which has huge influence throughout September. You may find yourself tripping the light fantastic in some sensual conversations, but it will be the last week when your influence and energies will be at their most potent.
Aquarius 21 January - 19 February
Venus continues in a gorgeous location through to the 20th. This is asking you to stay as open as possible to the possibilities of building new alliances or improving on any bond you have. There is also a very passionate backdrop beyond this, but this may call upon you to let go of your more logical control. This is not necessarily easy for you to do, but the rewards could be awesome.
Pisces 20 February - 20 March
The Full Moon in your sign on the 6th is going to make you think very carefully about what you want from relationships. But with the thrusting energies of Mars moving into your sector of relating just the day before, there's little doubt that the reactions and attitudes of anyone you are closely involved with are going to be at the heart, quite literally, of your happiness or otherwise this month.
