Love Horoscope for the Week of February 1

Listen to this article

The week starts under the influence of Mars square of the sun. This aspect can certainly add some clout to your personal relationships and strengthen some egos. Just make sure that your ego or that of someone close to you is not leading to someone actually being physically beaten. Mars loves to express itself through direct action.

Venus enters Aquarius On Monday. Whenever Venus changes her signs, it usually represents a tone shift of where and how the romance is playing out. Venus in Aquarius doesn’t usually get a lot of press because she is either a “good placement” or a “bad placement”. As with all Aquarius, this placement is often filed under “interesting but a little unusual”.

… Not this week, though. Venus gets a lot of action, and it’s not exactly pleasant. Exciting? For sure! Comfortable? No!

Although the two main aspects that Venus forms this week pile up towards the end of the week (especially both exactly on Saturday), they affect the entire week. First, Venus is in conjunction with Saturn. While this particular aspect sounds cool and unpromising for your love life, it is not necessarily the case. This can be a time to build something that is both romantic and comfortable, but has some solidity that romantic endeavors are often lacking. Please keep in mind that Venus and Saturn are great friends in Vedic astrology. This means that the Venus-Saturn conjunction can often turn out to be a lot better than it sounds on paper.

Regardless of whether or not Venus conjunct Saturn is good or bad for you personally, this time around we have an important element of disruption to bring in. Saturday is also the day on which Venus square Uranus is accurate. Any planet that gets a square of Uranus inevitably gets excited. Sometimes you can use it, and sometimes it’s like drinking one espresso too much: everything you try becomes shaky.

These two aspects of Venus taken together on the same day also imply that Saturn’s square Uranus is nearly exact. This is a wild and devastating combination that will work well beyond your personal relationships, and that aspect will affect much of the year. Like … how is your GameStop stock doing today?

No matter what happens in your love life or in life in general this week, expect the unexpected. Yes, I know I’m an astrologer and it’s my job to predict the future, and yet I had to rely on this old cliché. Let me loose a little here, will you? Mercury is retrograde for me as much as it is for you, and you may have trouble finding the right words at times.
