Your Love Horoscopes for the Week of July 17th
You might not be able to hide the emotional connection and chemistry you feel for one of your friends any longer. At the same time however, he or she might not know how to react to it. If you do reveal an attraction for your pal, be patient if you don’t receive an immediate response. Give your friend time to process it. Overall after Friday, you’ll spend the next several weeks re-evaluating everything and anything about your love life. Ultimately, this will be a good thing –even though it might feel draining at times.
It’s time for you and your mate to take care of any unresolved domestic issues that are getting in the way of your romance. Perhaps one of your relatives — or even a child has demanded a great deal of your focus lately due to a hard time that he or she is going through. You’ve been an incredible source of strength and support but while you’ve been the rock for your family it appears that your love life may have suffered. If single, you might have lost an opportunity to date someone special and if attached this situation has clearly put a dent in your personal life. Between now and September 6 you’ll need to resolve it.
Decisions about love and money will come to the forefront this week. Although you might feel pressured into solving any dilemma immediately, that won’t be the ideal course of action. Instead, take your time to process information and options carefully over the next few weeks. If you have a life changing decision to make about a relationship or with your partner this will be especially important. The two of you might go back and forth about your options for a while, but after September 6 you’ll have the answers.
A growing sense of dissatisfaction in your life might relate directly to the lack of appreciation you feel from the most important person in your life — your mate. It’s possible that he or she hasn’t been expressing just how amazing you are — at least not in any way that you’ve noticed. In fact, in some cases there might be a situation where your partner is devaluing you altogether. The next few weeks will be an interesting time for you to remember what you’re really worth. Without or without your partner’s agreement.
A Full Moon in your relationship sector this Friday will certainly put your emotional focus on your love life. What’s even more compelling is the fact that on the same day, Venus will retrograde back into your sign, and will remain retrograde until September 6. This will be a key time for you and your mate to re-evaluate whether or not each of you is giving and receiving love in a way that nourishes your relationship and individual selves. Love can become deeper than ever if you’re willing to put in some work on yourself first.
Venus will retrograde out of your sign this week and into your 12th House of All That’s Hidden on Friday. Matters of the heart are still up for review and will continue to require your careful consideration until after September 6. Now that Venus is in the most private part of your chart and moving backwards, you might notice that any unresolved traumas connected to romance are coming up to the surface. Attempting to bury them now will only rob you of the future happiness in love that you deserve.
If you’re dating someone this week it will likely bring a defining moment between you and your lover. Either the two of you will exchange those intimate words of love as you deepen your bond or you’ll decide that it’s time to move on. There really isn’t much room for anything in the middle — it’s an all or nothing feeling that your romantic situation will leave you with. If you do find yourself single after this week you may seek the solace of your friends as you lick your wounds. Avoid a rebound romance during this time or any “friends with benefits” situation.
Demands between home and career might leave little time or energy for romance. You’re likely to be at a crossroads professionally and while your family and partner requires your emotional support, it might feel impossible to deliver now. In fact, you might not be capable. The boss might have recently made it clear that you’re not as valuable as you thought you were. A wounded ego might lead to a major revision of your personal and professional goals. Try to include your partner in this process rather than shut him or her out.
A growing sense of discontent in your current relationship situation might require serious changes in the coming weeks. You might feel as if your lover is cramping your style and your need for personal freedom. The more you try to assert your desire to experience life the more he or she may try to hold you down. If this happens, it’ll be the kiss of death for you. Do your best to help your partner understand your need for expanding your horizons. If he or she is still not “getting it”, you’ll have a decision of your own to make.
Finances will be a priority this week and somehow it’ll tie in themes of love and relationship. If you and your mate are sharing resources, it might be time to assess exactly what is “yours, mine and ours.” Venus will retrograde into your 8th House of Joint Finances on Friday emphasizing this theme until September 6. You might have a situation during this time where one of you leans more on the other for financial support. Or, it’s possible that you’ll decide it’s a good time to re-evaluate your portfolio together. An excellent plan!
With a Full Moon in your sign this Friday, there’s no doubt that you’re more emotionally in tune than usual. Use this to your advantage and do what you can to connect deeply with your partner. He or she might be more responsive to your sentimental side than you think. In fact, it’s possible that your love is troubled by an unresolved situation in your relationship. If you show that you’re emotionally open rather than defensive, this will be an excellent time to iron out whatever wrinkle this is.
Although you might spend most of this week working through a rough patch with your partner, it appears that by Friday, the two of you will have either agreed to disagree or resolved the situation. Alternatively, if you have been struggling with growing romantic feelings for a coworker, things could begin to get messy by Friday. Will you pursue this or will you refuse to mix business with pleasure? That’s the million dollar question that only your heart can answer.
