This is a wonderful year for love! Not only is Jupiter’s recent move into Sagittarius giving your heart a jolt of optimism, but the two planets that drive your love life, Mars and Venus, will NOT be turning retrograde in 2019. Normally, there are several weeks out of the year when at least one of these planets travels backward, causing us to find ourselves in a tragic love funk. We don’t connect with our partners, we question the entire relationship, or we may even call up an ex despite the fact that their contact name has been changed to “Don’t Do It.”
This year, the universe is giving our hearts a break — and an opportunity to make progress in your love life. Whether you’ve been with your sweetheart for 30 years or are still in the honeymoon stage, you can expect fun and adventurous things to happen in your relationship in 2019.
When Venus is retrograde, we tend to think long and hard about our past relationships and the people in them. It wouldn’t be out of the ordinary to reach out to an ex and try to reconnect — or for them to reach out to you. Sometimes this can bring you closure and actually help your new relationship grow. But normally, this only leads to trouble and can diminish the trust and progress between you and your partner.
Thankfully, with Venus stationed direct all year, the urge to rekindle an old flame will be seriously dampened! You’ll have a chance to soak up all your lover’s attention without any ex drama getting in your way. The past is in the past, and the future is bright for you and your partner.
We have your extended love horoscope for this wonderful year of Venus and Mars direct. Enjoy!
