Mars and Venus are the day to day significators of your love life, and your ‘luck,’ in finding someone special depends upon their placement in your chart. During the times of your life that major transits
and progressions promise a date with destiny, you can bet Mars and Venus will be involved, and during these times when your social life picks up you can rest assured the dynamic duo is dancing through your chart whether it is a match for a few months or the match of a lifetime.
Mars and Venus bring the greatest opportunities for love when they are both in the signs that are compatible with your Sun sign. It is a rare occurrence that both Venus and Mars occupy your sun sign or even better still your the house of love at the same time.
It is so rare for them to occupy the same sign, during 2010 Mars and Venus will occupy only three lucky signs together. They team up in the sign Virgo July 10-25. This means Virgos will have opportunity at this time to meet someone significant, or an existing relationship can soar to new levels. This combination is especially exciting for those born under the sign of Taurus as the planets of love, sex and affection will occupy their fifth house of love affairs. The combination is also potent for Capricorns, and good for Cances, Scorpios, and the dazzling planetary combination will transit through the seventh house of marriage and relationships for those born under the sign Pisces.
Mars and Venus meet up again in the sign Libra for just over a month from August 7-September 8, 2010. This creates opportunities for love and romance if you are a Libra, and works especially well for Aquarians. It creates opportunities in love for all other Air and Fire signs; Sagittarius, Aries, Geminis and Leos. If you are an Aries or Aries ascendant this means the planets that attract love are in your 7th house of marriage and close personal relationships.
Scorpio’s get lucky in the fall as Mars and Venus transit through their sign September 15-October 27. Scorpios have every opportunity of meeting that special someone, as do Cancers who have the two planets together in their fifth house of love affairs. This works well Pisces as well, also with the Earth signs: Taurus, Virgo and Capricorn. This month however, there is a twist: Venus retrogrades in Scorpio from October 8-November 6, and re-enters the sign Libra from November 8, going direct again on November 18 at 27 degrees of Libra. If this degree is close to a personal planet in your chart you will be certain to be effected. Venus re-enters lucky Scorpio for a second time November 30- January 7, 2011.
When Venus goes retrograde love energy intensifies, but matters concerning love can sometimes seem to be put on the back burner. If you meet someone with Venus and Mars in Scorpio, during the period that Venus retrogrades, the relationship will have to withstand the test of time to know whether or not it is a ‘keeper.’ During the retrograde period, manipulative tactics sometimes increase, and bad relationships can often break off, altogether. If your relationship is solid it will withstand the test. If you meet someone during the time Venus is going direct the love energy is profound and can sometimes be referred to as love at first sight. If you begin a new relationship on a retrograde Venus the feelings of love and affection are not so easily expressed.
Venus and Mars can individually bring love and romance into your life as well. Venus entered Aquarius on January 19, where it will remain until February 7. Aquarians will look and feel their best during this period and Venus in the first house is when the opposite sex is most likely to find you attractive. Venus in Aquarius works especially well for Libra as it transits through the fifth house of romance. It can also bring opportunities for Aries, Gemini, Leo’s and Sagittarius.
On February 8 Venus enters Pisces until March 7, bringing the desire to improve health diet, dress and creating romantic opportunities. All Water and Earth signs will be favorably effected, especially Scorpios, and Cancers will benefit as will Taureans, Virgos and Capricorns.
From March 8-April 1, Aries will have their day in the Sun as the planet of romance transits through the first sign of the zodiac. This is an especially beneficial period for Aries as Venus’s partner, Mars goes direct on March 10 in Aries fifth house of romance through June 6. Aries have every opportunity during this time to meet a special match or improve an existing one. The planets are working in your favor, so if you are looking for love, make the most of this rare opportunity! It is especially likely you will meet someone if Mars goes direct on a personal planet in your chart at 0 degrees of Leo!
Taureans have a wonderful spring to look forward to as the planet of love enters their sign April 1-21. Capricorn is favorably affected by this placement as Venus transits their fifth house of love. This is positive for Cancers, Virgos,, Scorpio, and Pisces as well.
Venus enters the sign Gemini from April 25-May 19. Aquarians benefit as Venus transits their fifth house. Leos have a chance at love with this placement as do Libras, Sagittarius, and Aries. This is an extra positive time for Geminis, Aries, Leo, and Libra, as Mars is still in the compatible sign Leo.
May 19-June 13 is a perfect time for Cancers to shine as Venus enters their sign. It is also good for Scorpio and Pisces and the earth signs:Taurus, Virgo and Capricorn.
June 14-July 9 Venus is in the sign Leo, and those ruled by the sign of the Lion should fare well. It also works for the other fire signs, Sagittarius and Aries, as well as the Air signs Gemini, Libra, and Aquarius. Aries will get another boost when Jupiter, the planet of expansion enters Aries from June 6-September 8 for a few months. It will be especially favorable if your personal planets are being touched by Jupiter at 0-1 degrees of Aries.
Mars can also bring favorable periods for love, especially when it goes direct in Leo on March 10. Leos will start to move forward in life with a bang, and it will be beneficial for Aries, Sagittarius, Aquarians, Gemini,, and Libras.
Mars will transit through Sagittarius from October 29-December 7 creating new opportunities for those born under the sign of the Golden Archer. Leos will benefit the most as the planet of sex and action transits their fifth house of love and romance. Other fire signs are favorably effected as are the Air signs: Gemini, Libra, and Aquarius.
December 7- January 15 ,2011 Mars travels through the sign Capricorn, creating new opportunities for the sure footed goat, and is especially favorable for love transiting through Virgos fifth house.
Others benefiting from Mar’s trip through Capricorn will be Taureans, Scorpios, Pisces, and potentially Cancer, depending upon which planets are being aspec ed in their charts.
