Happy birthday Libra, it’s finally your time of the year to shine! Just for you, we’ve put together a love forecast for the next 12 months. Scroll down to learn what this year holds.
There’s a lot of exciting things in store for you over the next year, and romance is definitely in your stars. Jupiter will be bringing good luck and positive fortune to your sign for the most of the year, along with some other very positive planetary transit and aspect working in your favor.
This year long forecast outlines when the very best times for romance are, as well as when you would probably just stay in. Really, it’s like your handbook to love for the next year. Well, what are you waiting for? Let’s take a look at just what you can expect!
September is just about over, Libra, and it sure has been a busy month for all of us. The final days of September actually kick off your personal year in a really awesome way with the New Moon happening in your own sign on the 30th.
This marks the time of year where you can start something new and fresh that will be beneficial to you and will allow you to grow in the direction you desire, you’ve just got to take the initiative and make good use of the positive lunar energy.
At the same time, Jupiter is here acting as a sort of cosmic fertilizer to whatever things you decide to set forth. This great energy can help you in growing and turning small things into big opportunities and fosters new relationships and positive interactions. In your sign, this aspect can signify new partnerships and relationships, growth for existing relationships, and even marriage—If the time is right, of course.
Also, rounding out the end of September, Venus and Neptune will be positively aspecting one another and infusing some magical intensity to romantic situations. Commitment may be what you are wanting right now, and if you know what, or who, you want, now’s a time where your dreams can come true.
As October gets underway, your ruling planet, Venus, is making her way through Scorpio in your 2nd house of finance and stability. You want a partner who is reliable and whom you can count on for anything, but you are also craving something exciting and romantic. Public displays of affection aren’t really your thing early in the month, but you wouldn’t mind getting close to someone special in private.
As the month moves on, you want to strengthen your emotional bond with a partner. If single, you’ll probably find that you have good luck with meeting someone new or just getting to know someone a little better around the 11th.
If it’s a new relationship you are looking for, encounters with intense, quirky individuals could prove to be quite positive, so don’t turn someone away just because they don’t seem to be your typical “type.” You really never know whether you’ll click until you give them at least a few minutes of your time to get beneath the surface.
On the 16th, The Aries Full Moon occurs in your 7th house of relationships and partnerships and with this fiery lunar energy comes a sense of urgency to make a choice about some aspect of a relationship or partnership, as well as unpredictability. This Full Moon will be making a direct connection with the slightly chaotic Uranus, which always ads a bit of excitement into the mix.
The question is what kind of excitement will this be? You may suddenly choose to end a relationship that isn’t working for you, or your partner could surprise you in some way that brings the two of you much closer. Evaluate where you’re at and decide how to move forward from here. The best piece of advice I can offer with Uranus energy is to resist the urge to fight it. Roll with the punches and do your very best to go with the flow around this Full Moon.
Venus makes her way into the lighter and less intense Sagittarius on the 17th, making romance a bit easier to handle. You’ll notice your outlook on the future of your love life become a bit more optimistic and that PDA you hated earlier in the month might not seem so bad after all.
You want more than just passion, though, it takes someone who can stimulate your mind to really catch your attention under this Venus transit, but conversations seem to flow pretty easily between you and those who hold your interest.
You are a natural when it comes to socializing anyway, but something about the energy you’re feeling as the month of October comes to a close just makes it easier to articulate yourself and convey your thoughts. Be careful, though, there is the possibility of finding yourself in the middle of a love triangle with you in the middle now. Choose wisely but allow your heart.
November is a month of transformation for you, Libra, and you’ll be feeling a need to make some positive changes in your life. It’s past time to shed that emotional baggage you’ve been carrying around and make room for what’s ahead!
This whole process can feel quite liberating and will make you feel more capable of taking on the world and winning in both life and love. Romance may feel a bit stifled in the first few days of the month, but this is fine, as it gives you a little time to think and regroup.
Unusual characters will catch your eye early this month and you would do well to try a date night that’s outside the realm of what’s your “norm.” Sudden changes to your pans may come up, but instead of getting frustrated about it, see where the little holdups and changes take you.
Sometimes it’s that little nudge from the Universe that places you right where you didn’t even know you wanted to be. Don’t be surprised if you find yourself being pursued more heavily than usual, either, especially after the 10th when Mars shifts into your 5th house of love ad romance.
The Taurus Full Moon mid-month will perpetuate this need to transform some elements of your life and can help you in figuring out how to regain the stability in your love life you’ve been looking for. Venus will be making her way into the earthy Capricorn right around this same time, and you could actually find yourself wanting to spend more time at home with your love than out on the town.
Now is the time for a little relationship R&R and time to focus on strengthening your plans for the future. The plans you work toward don’t have to be life changing, just something you can work toward together that puts you on the same page. This may sound a touch boring, staying in and planning for future fun, but trust me, there is passion headed your way as the month moves along!
As you move toward the end of November, emotions may run high and love or romance can become kind of intense. You may start to feel like there is just too much going on, or not know how to handle certain situations that come up.
Don’t let yourself become overstressed, take a few minutes to breathe and then revisit whatever issue has come up. Power struggles are possible now, but only to an extent. Your partner sees you as a powerful, sexy lover, so take this opportunity to demonstrate just how right they are.
December gets off to kind of a rough start romantically, but it won’t stay this way for too long, so don’t worry. It isn’t that things are bad, it’s just that there are so many different things happening at once and you aren’t quite sure which direction to turn your attention toward first.
Excess can become a problem now, and all of the passionate energy flowing through your chart makes it very possible to get carried away. Things will start to level out after the 7th of the month when Venus joins Mars in your 5th house of romance and brings a better sense of balance to your love life.
As the month moves on and things calm down a bit, you’ll find happiness in indulging your creative side. Your partner, or potential partner, will see that little sparkle in your eye once again and life will just feel nicer.
As Venus comes to the point of making a very positive aspect with Jupiter, which is still in your own sign, you’ll feel this buildup of positive energy and excitement.
The holidays are creeping up, giving us some great feelings ad love is definitely in the air. Really, what could be any better than that? If you are already in a relationship, things could become more committed or you may level up, so to speak, or if single, this is a prime time for starting something fresh. Don’t be afraid to flirt a little and let your crush know how you feel, the odds are very good that if you’re feeling the vibe, so are they.
Uranus comes out of retrograde in your 7th house of relationships on the 29th, a shift in energy that will help you to find what it is that makes you happy on a soul-level.
You can’t fake it, love has to be real and genuine now, and if you’ve been following your heart that’s right where you should find yourself—Embracing a love that is genuine, and perhaps unique. If you aren’t attached right now this will all help you in finding the one you’re in search of and remind you of why you never want to settle.
The new year gets off to a great start with your ruling planet of romance moving into the dream-filled waters of Pisces. Venus is exalted here, and your sensual, romantic energy is able to come out more freely.
There’s a genuine desire to love and be loved. Romance can feel like a fairy tale as the month goes on and the connection between you and your lover or partner will be feeling more intense, almost as if you share a psychic connection that only the two of you understand. You can find magic in even the most mundane day to day tasks and your sense of compassion is at an all time high.
If you’re single, it’s possible during this time to strike up a romance with a co-worker or someone you come into contact with on a day to day basis. Does that hot guy at the vet spark your interest, or maybe the one with the super cute pup who you’ve spoken with a few times at the dog park?
If so, this could be the time that something comes of that unspoken attraction. A stolen glance here and there could possibly turn into much more, just make certain that you aren’t fantasizing about what this other person could be more than you are seeing them for what they really are.
Later in the month, on the 27th, the New Moon in Aquarius brings opportunity to start something new in your love life. Occurring in your 5th house of romance, creativity, and happiness, this New Moon is rather special with regard to your romantic relationships.
You may decide to add something new and different to the relationship you have now, or you could use this window of opportunity to solidify a brand new relationship. This also marks a great time to begin a creative project, either alone or with a partner, and your general demeanor will be one that’s light and airy. Life is meant to be lived happily, so if you haven’t been embracing this motto, it’s time you started!
With all these feelings of romance and general happiness floating around, you could find yourself in a position where you feel like committing to someone and making things more official.
Mars moves into Aries, right where this fiery ball of passion is most comfortable and at his strongest, on the 28th, and with this shift you may notice either you or your partner giving signs that it’s time to get more serious about where things are headed.
This also brings potential for arguments to arise, but everyone argues from time to time—In fact, a little arguing is actually healthy as long as things don’t get too crazy. The cosmic energy ending out this first month of 2017 says it’s time to lock it down and stop playing around when it comes to love. Trust your gut.
February is an exciting month for your love life, Libra, and it’s not just because of Valentine’s Day. Venus makes a move into your 7th house of relationships and partnerships on the 3rd and brings a really positive boost of energy to this area of your life.
Mars has been here staring thing sup a bit, and with this added Venus touch you’ll have all the makings of shared love and passion. In Aries this can feel quite forceful and you will want to just go after whatever, or whomever, you desire, so go ahead and do it! Don’t hold back if you know what you want.
Communications with that someone special become easier as the month moves on with Mercury making a move into your 5th house, where we saw so much energy in the months prior.
This gives you a bit of an edge when it comes to making conversation and sharing your thoughts with your mate, especially when the planet of communication and the planet of growth make a positive connection on the 21st. Spend some time really getting to know one another, even if you think you know everything about your partner, there is always more to learn.
Speaking of Valentine’s Day, you’ve got some amazing things happening around the 14th with the Sun and Jupiter creating a lot of opportunity for personal growth within your relationship, as well as on your own.
Your luck seems to be pretty amazing right now, but don’t take too many unnecessary chances. Take whatever opportunities are offered up and build on them, in both love and otherwise. Communication will be a big thing you’ll want to focus on during this time.
Mars, still in your 7th house of relationships, will be making a connection with Uranus and adding some fuel to the fire of chaos that this big blue planet holds. Prepare yourself for whatever may come of it, and know that arguments or disagreements are possible toward the end of the month.
It’s not even the type of issues you could ever imagine coming up that will get to you, either…really, it’s crazy stuff that just pulls the rug out from under you in one final swoop. These conjunctions act like a lightening bolt of crazy, meant to grab your attention.
They aren’t life threatening or relationship ending, and really, they aren’t even predictable enough for me to give you much of a heads up—Just know, something will come up and it may be incredibly amazing, but you may be left saying WTF just happened?! Do your best to roll with it and move on. Like a duck, just let the little things roll right off your back. Be a duck.
As we end out the month of February you may notice there’s a weird kind of feel to romance and relationships. This is due to the impending Venus retrograde period that’s coming in just a few short days.
You’ll actually feel this retrograde more than most, being that Venus is your planetary ruler, and it will almost certainly impact your love life in one way or another. Don’t do anything just yet, for now, you’ll do the best feeling out the situations forming around you.
March is a weird month for love, and it’s all thanks to a little thing called Venus retrograde. Just about everyone has heard of Mercury retrograde cycles and what a pain in the butt those can be, but not everyone knows that other planets have these retrograde periods too.
Venus doesn’t turn retro nearly as often as the others, but when she does it can cause quite a disruption to your love life, as well as your finances.
With the Venus retrograde starting on the 5th of this month and lasting through until the 15th of April, this is a good time to step back from romance a bit. Now, of you are in a relationship, by all means, don’t just walk out because Venus is retrograde, that’s not what I am saying at all!
The thing is, new romances begun under this kind of retrograde influence tend to kind of fizzle out with the transit, so while it may be fun, anything started this month is not likely to be something that lasts. You also want to avoid making any major purchases while Venus is doing her retrograde thing or you’ll probably regret them in a few weeks.
One thing that does seem to happen a lot during these transits is the return of lovers from your past who try to make a reentrance into your life.
Now, this is totally up to you, but just remember that there’s usually a pretty good reason someone is no longer a part of your life—Sometimes taking back an old flame, no matter how good heir game is, can be sort of like taking old trash out of the garbage pail and trying to make it new again. It usually just doesn’t work.
As the month moves on and you have some time to think about what you want to do with your life, there’s a lot of energy moving into the relationship zone of your chart. This is going to place a lot of emphasis on partnerships past, present and future. The Sun lights up this area, while connecting with your ruler, Venus, and gives you that feeling you tend to get sometimes where you just feel like you need to have a partner to go on happily.
The New Moon in this same area of your stars will have you wanting to start something or do something different, and it could have a positive result, the main thing is that you proceed with caution and that you acknowledge that this retrograde Venus is hanging around (also in your relationship zone).
Meanwhile, as all of this has been transpiring, Jupiter, still in your sign, and Uranus have been opposing one another and, no doubt, creating some interesting situations in your life. This can create a mindset where you think you want a lot of something or someone, but in reality you really don’t know what you want.
You’ll be attracted to things or people simply because they’re different from what you are used to and this could create some unique problems for you in the future. And not even long into the future…like next month or next week. Do what makes you happy, but take all of this into consideration before you actually pull the trigger on any major relationship issues this month. It may actually be more fun to sit back and just observe how other people handle this crazy whirlwind month!
So Venus comes out of retrograde this month, but not until the 15th. From the standpoint of his this transit can affect your finances, April 15th seems to be a rather appropriate day for things to go back to normal.
Before this happens, however, there’s going to be a Full Moon in your own sign on the 11th. This will bring you to a point of completion of some lift cycle that you’ve been working through and will reap whatever rewards you are deserved at this time.
This Full Moon has less to do with romance and more to do with some elements of your life that are all you, but even so, I think it’s worth mentioning.
Now, if you’ve let Jupiters influence take the wrong road and cause laziness over the last 6 months you probably won’t like the results of your labor. If, however, you have stayed on track and been moving in the right direction toward attaining your personal goals this can be a great and rewarding period for you. And even if you could stand to work on your methods a bit, it’s never too late to get back on track!
Romantically speaking, you could be feeling some frustrations in the two weeks leading up to Venus turning direct—Not to mention the fact that Mercury is going to be retrograde in your relationship zone from the 9th of this month until the 3rd of May— The planet of love will square Saturn twice, dredging up frustrations and then rolling right back over them again once she gets going in the proper direction.
You may find that you feel stifled in romance with this transit, you may even experience a little bout of some depressive emotions—Just know that if you are reading this and you are feeling that, that it’ll get better over the course of the rest of this month. Not every day can be amazing, not even every month can, but that’s what makes the truly amazing times so incredible. Remember that.
To add to this crazy month you’ve had, the Sun is going to be passing right over Uranus, once again unleashing the unpredictable, yet sometimes brilliant energy stored here. I actually like to refer to Uranian energy as a sort of brilliant chaos. You never know what you’ll get with these transits, but if you can find the brilliance in whatever the situation is, it can be kind of magical.
Conversations with your partner could take unexpected turns with Mercury getting in the mix and also sparking the flames of Uranus in Aries. Things may come out of you or your partner’s mouths that make you both step back and say, “Excuse me?!” Just breathe, carry on, and know that this, too, shall pass.
Things finally start to feel a bit more normal on the romantic front this month with Venus out of retrograde and back in your relationship zone.
This second go around will be a lot more positive and less stressful, thankfully. You can make some headway in romantic relationships throughout the month with a better sense of balance within your partnership.
There’s a bit of an inner struggle here, though, between wanting to be independent and wanting to have someone you can depend on. This is a good time to work on those relationship boundaries and determining where you draw your lines in the sand, as well as working to understand where your partner’s lines lie, as well.
Mercury has been in retrograde in your relationship zone since the 9th of April, but this particular cycle comes to an end early in the month, on the 3rd of May.
All this retrograde energy has kind of brought your love life to a frustrating slower pace. Things may have been going wrong and you’ve just not been able to figure out why all of the little things that have gone wrong have done so I won’t sugar coat it, Libra.
This past month or two has been a real douse for your love life, but if you are in a relationship that survived all that you should be proud and know that you’ve got a keeper.—I suppose that finding being able to test the strength and realness of your bond is the upside to all this retrograde madness.
Your passion this month is for getting away and exploring new things. Perhaps a nice vacation holiday for you and your mate is just what you need right now. Plus, who doesn’t love vacations?
There is a positive for of energy between you and your partner where you both want to be able to give the other person something that can add value to their life.
There’s also a lot of potential for laziness here, and I’m not saying you don’t deserve a break, but it is important to remember that it takes the efforts of two to make relationships work. Be honest and don’t promise more than you know you can give.
The Scorpio Full Moon on the 10th can bring a final conclusion to some financial dealings you’ve been working on. This could be paying off a debt or simply getting your finances into better order after the Venus retrograde. Avoid overspending and consider putting some away for a rainy day now.
June starts out with Venus, still in your relationship zone, making a direct connection with Uranus. You’ve had quite a lot of Uranian energy infused into your love life in the last several months, so you probably have become pretty adept at handling this kind of craziness.
You may find yourself attracted to someone who could be described as being eccentric, or you may find independence to be more important than ever. Whatever the case may be, know that your relationships are not going to be any modicum of boring now, or really for the next few years, as long as Uranus is transition through your relationship zone.
The thing about these Uranus transits is that they come into our lives to help us reach and push for what we truly want in life. The cycle for Uranus to travel through an entire sign is approximately 7 years, and you’ve got about 3 and a half years left.
Many dealing with this energy will end their current relationship to go it alone for a bit and learn what they truly want, while others will experiment with different types of partners.
However you are handling this Uranus transit through Aires and your relationship zone, know that you’ll eventually find the partner right for you. If you’ve already found this perfect person, this is the time where you’ll really come to know and understand one another’s quirks and weird little habits. If you make it through this, you’ll make it through anything!
After the 6th, the general energy felt in your love life will be a bit heavier and you’ll feel things more deeply than you have been. You want a partner who is either all in or all out.
There is no in-between area for you now and you need to know that if someone wants to be with you, they will be with only you. Jealousy is possible now, but don’t let this get the better of you. Enjoy the intense connection that can be made when you take the right approach to love in the month of June.
As the end of the month rolls around this intimate connection, you share with your partner can become deeper than ever when Venus in Taurus activates Pluto in Capricorn.
Don’t hold back, embrace the heightened intimacy between the two of you and let yourself have what it is you got into this relationship for in the first place. If single, you could find yourself in the company of someone who sparks your fires and with whom you feel a natural kind of connection with.
The Capricorn Full Moon happening early in the month of July will be felt intensely by everyone due to the conjunction between this lunation and Pluto.
There may be some changes to your home environment, and if you live with your significant other this could flow over into changes in you relationship dynamic. This is not a negative kind of change, however, and actually, if you aren’t living together yet this could help that idea become a reality.
Love just seems to flow around the 18th of the month and you feel more optimistic than usual about your future and the future of your relationship. Balance is the key to maintaining peace and harmony within any relationship, especially romantic ones, and this balance is easier to reach for the days surrounding the 18th.
Travel is very possible now, especially if you are in a long distance relationship. It’s difficult enough to not be in the same area code as your sweetie, especially with all of this Uranian energy flowing through your relationship zone, so kudos to you if you can make it work out. —As a side story that may make you feel a bit better about any long distance relationships causing you stress, I actually married the man I had a long distance relationship with and he had Uranus transiting his 7th house the entire time.
In fact, we were married for about a year, living 1,300 miles apart, before we lived in the same house. It wasn’t always easy but it did work and now things are just grand.
Expect for things to feel pretty peaceful around the 10th and 11th of the month. Your focus will be on general happiness and should spend time with those you enjoy spending time with the most. The 10th in-particular will be a day where you feel a positive connection with your partner. If single, you a use this celestial energy to get a little bit closer to whoever you’ve had your eye on. Don’t be afraid to flirt and put yourself out there!
August starts out with some excitement with the Aquarius Full Moon happening in your 5th house of love and happiness. This lunation also involves your 11th house of wishes, hopes, and dreams and makes a positive aspect with Jupiter, still in your sign.
You may decide to bring an end to some element of your romantic relationship, or you could become much closer and get much more intimately involved with your someone special.
The involvement of Jupiter in such a positive way leads me to believe that this will mark a really positive event in your life, almost certainly having to do with your love life. Enjoy this great energy and make good use of it! Don’t wast the nigh inside all alone, spend it with your current love or get out there and see what, or who is in your path.
A little later in the month there is some potential for disagreements, displays of personal power, or some type of domination over either you or another person you have close ties with.
This can infiltrate your romantic involvements and is something to watch out for when it comes to dealing with your romantic partner. Never sacrifice too much of yourself just to appease your mate, as this will only lead to eventual feelings of resentment.
You may find yourself attracted to a friend or someone who’s a member of a group you are involved with around the 26th. This attraction could potentially lead to something positive, so see where it takes you. Warm feelings of love and a creative, new approach to love could soon enter your life, so pay attention to all those little cues and don’t ignore your feelings now.
As autumn approaches you find yourself wanting something more stable in your love life. You’ve dealt with all of the instability and chaos Uranus has brought to your relationships over the last year and now you want to solidify something with someone special.
You need someone who stimulates your intellectual side, while providing a stable base camp of emotional support and remaining romantic. Really, you just want it all—And you should never forget that you do, in fact, deserve it all!—This could be the time when you decide to settle down with a partner, and it’s very possible this partner is that friend you fell for last month.
Lunar Eclipses fill this month with an intense kind of energy that has everyone searching for something, for you this something is love and emotional stability.
Don’t be afraid to tell your partner what you want. You won’t be feeling like socializing too much, not like you do normally anyway. Take the time to figure out what exactly you want and then, once you feel sure about things, go after it. Let love in and don’t deny the intense feelings that are almost a certainty this month.
The Sun moves into your own sign later in the month, right around the 22nd, and your energy levels become heightened. You’ve made it through another yearly cycle and you’ve probably had your love life turned upside down in more than one instance.
These experiences have brought you to a new level of knowing what you want, though, and now you are ready to take on and embark upon a new yearly cycle, full of love and passion.
Luckily for you, this next year will be one where your finances will have the opportunity to grow incredibly as Jupiter leaves your sign and moves into the depths of Scorpio and right into your 2nd house of disposable income and personal finances for the next 12 months.
Uranus will remain in your 7th house of relationships for the entirety of another year, but with this transit comes knowledge of what’s right for you. Avoid making any rash decisions regarding your relationships that you may later be less than thrilled about.
Enjoy the love and romance that the Universe sends your way and, as I’ve said many times, don’t be afraid to put yourself out there and go after what you want and desire. The fact is, we don’t always know what love will bring into our lives, and it won’t always be incredible or amazing, but as long as you are happy and you’re following your heart you can’t really go wrong.
