Mars is your romance ruler, and during this period, romance is more likely than not to be working in your favor – you’re in the driver’s seat.
Venus is in your sign from October 18-November 11, 2016. This is a time when the world seems to be speaking, or at least appreciating, your “love language”.
Mercury, your partnership ruler, is in your sign from November 12-December 2, 2016.
This is a generally strong period for attracting partnerships or when partnerships seem to be going in your favor.
Until then, you are certainly a more serious version of yourself, and this is particularly the case with Saturn in your sign until December 2017.
While this is an important time for bringing more order to your life, there can be times, of course, when the people you love (and the people you want to love) may feel a little alienated, left out, or downright intimidated! Try not to communicate your stress or negativity if that’s going to be others’ first impressions.
Mercury’s retrogrades during this period occur from Key Periods July 2016 to July 2017: Mars is in your sign until September 27, 2016, and your animal magnetism is very strong.
You tend to go after what you want without apology.
When Mercury is retrograde, your close relationships are particularly vulnerable.
These are periods when a partner is reflective, there are communication problems, or when relationships are confusing.
It can be an especially impulsive, dynamic, and flirtatious time when creativity blossoms, feelings are ripe and insistent, and desires come on powerfully.
In many ways with serious Saturn in your sign these days, circumstances are such that your more responsible side is called upon, so take advantage of this period for expressing your more playful side.
However, these are also important periods for slowing down and looking at things in new ways.
