2015’s “Summer of Love” will play out something like this…
A few weeks go by, and she begins to notice certain things about him that she didn’t notice before. He can be too distracted by work, and his courtship efforts wane. Meanwhile, he’s noticed that she has become more distant and detached – her affections have cooled and he feels unloved. The height of passion first experienced is no longer palpable. The two lovers start to question if they are, in fact, meant to be. Contemplating the big picture of what they truly desire in partnership, they wonder if it can be found in one another. What happens next for the lovebirds isn't revealed until fall.
As the planets Venus and Jupiter stay linked over the next few weeks, love will definitely be in the air. But this energy playing out in the romantic sign of Leo might lead us to revel in the idea of love, blocking out the image of what is actually in front of us. Once Venus dips into the nitpicking sign of Virgo for a brief stint on July 18th, the kinks of a union will come to light as we begin to pick a part the things that were missed. When this occurs, take it as your queue to reevaluate where you stand with a significant other. The love of your life may very well just be your love for the summer.
Venus turns retrograde a week later on July 25th, and will continue to backtrack in the sign of Leo through September. This represents a time to consider the workings of a partnership, in order to get back to the basics of love for the sake of longevity. Don’t be surprised if a former “the one” comes back for another round, and try not to throw in the towel if a current “the one” begins to act differently. The universe is encouraging us to consider if our affections are real and can stand the tests of time; relationships will be tested. We should be prepared then, to act in accordance with what we value most in matters of the heart.
