A personal dream involving matters of the heart might die for you this week—but it doesn’t have to be completely devastating. Perhaps what truly needs to end are your overly self-driven expectations. If you’re in a relationship, then you could realize that you can’t maintain a life focused exclusively on your desires without considering your partner.

While you shouldn’t take too many risks, feel free to take just enough to keep you on your toes.
You might not be interested in communicating fairly with your partner. If there is anything you need to compromise about, or a mutual decision you have to make that requires you two to see each other’s points of view, try to hold off. The Full Moon in independent Aries will fall in your 9th House of Beliefs on Sunday.

Fortunately, now that Mercury turned direct in your sign, Virgo, you can remind yourself about who you are and what you want. If there is someone you’re crushing on, you’re capable of logically deciding whether this person is worth the pursuit or if they’re simply a waste of time. If you’re in a relationship at this time, you’ve probably got important ideas to share with your mate. They had better listen up! Then, on Saturday, passionate Pluto turns direct in your romance sector. Get ready for some mysterious sensuality.
Your love life is about to be a major focus and a potential sore spot! The Full Moon in Aries on Saturday lands in your partnership sector. This lunation is not about connection, but rather individuation. It’s calling attention to where you and your mate need to go in independent directions in order to be fulfilled. Unfortunately, as you pursue this, it might take away energy that was once reserved for your love connection. You’ll do what you can to balance things, but it might not be easy—that said, remember that few worthwhile things are. If single, you might realize that this isn’t the right time for love. The prospects you meet likely appear too selfish.
“Uncomfortable” conversations may now be right within your comfort zone, Scorpio! Powerful Pluto, your ruler, turns direct in your communication sector on Saturday. If you are interested in getting to know someone romantically, you’ll go right for the heart of things in your dialogue. You want to know immediately if you’re wasting your time or if this will be a connection worth pursuing. Let Pluto empower you to ask necessary questions that should quickly help you figure out whether or not this person is trustworthy and genuine. And for those already in a love connection, your partner might get the same dialogue. Inquiring minds want to know!
This could be a “make it or break it” kind of week for you. Even if you and your lover don’t reach a breaking point, you’ll probably feel extra emotional regarding any of your needs not being met. Try talking to your sweetheart about it before you cut ties. Drastic action might be regrettable later on. That said, Sunday’s Full Moon in your romance sector is both illuminating and self-serving. If you’re not getting what you want, you might feel like there is no point. Single? You might want to try asking someone out on a date. Assertive action can be rewarded. Just remember, when it comes to relating, it definitely takes two to tango.
It’s amazing when you feel like you’re standing tall in your power and can confidently take the driver’s seat of your love life. This week, this is likely to be your overall vibe—thanks to empowering Pluto turning direct in your sign on Saturday. It’s time to make the moves in your life that you know will serve you best. A love connection that makes you feel less than strong needs to be addressed. Whether single or attached, you can have razor-sharp focus as you attack any of your unresolved authority or relationship issues that are getting in the way of a healthy love connection. You’ve got this!
Any romantic confusion may finally settle down over the course of this week. Suspicion about future or present lovers can either serve as a warning signal for something that is wrong or make you unnecessarily paranoid about someone—particularly if you end up feeling sensitive due to trust issues from your love situation in the past. Uncertainty regarding whether or not you can trust your own judgment in this matter has likely been driving you a little batty, but fortunately, you’re now able to discover, once and for all, what is truly going on and how you should act, according to the facts.
Partnerships should start to make sense again—especially if you and a current or potential love interest have not been seeing eye to eye lately. Mercury turned direct in your relationship sector last Sunday, and this week will be moving forward through its post-retrograde shadow period. As a result, you may find it easier to make decisions with your mate and have conversations without any mishaps. If you’re single, you might feel a strong sense of clarity about your relationship needs, particularly when it comes to what you will and won’t tolerate in your next love connection. Knowing what you don’t want is just as important as knowing what you do want!
