As we mentioned, the past two years were very powerful love and social years. Many of you married or became involved in serious love relationships. Thus there’s no longer a concentration on romance. You seem content with the status quo. Thus married couples will have a tendency to stay married and singles will tend to stay single.
Romance and social activities might not be prominent, but the sex life seems hyperactive. As in most things, you’re experimenting in this area.
The Sun is your lovely planet and he is a fast-moving planet. In any given year, he moves through all the signs and houses of your Horoscope. Thus there are various short-term trends in love, depending on where the Sun is taken at and the kind of aspects he receives. These are best dealt with in the monthly reports.
There will be for two solar eclipses this year. These will have a tendency to shake up the love life and current relationship. You pass through this every year, so it doesn’t necessarily mean the end of a relationship. It only shows that dirty laundry is produced out to be washed, to be corrected. Hidden flaws in the relationship make themselves known so that corrections can be done. Robust relationships tend to be survive and get even better. It’s the shaky ones that are at risk. These solar eclipses are on March 9 and September 1, and we will discuss them more fully in the periodic reports.
Sun as the love planet shows that you like strength in a lover – someone renowned such as an athlete, celebrity or entertainer. You can be ‘star struck’ when it falls on in love with. You like authority figures, and you like to rebel against them. It is as if some rude romantic dance that you have. Attract the authority figures, and then defy the authority.
The area of friendship also seems less enthusiastic than usual. We have been considered earlier. Your trend is to attract myriads of friends. Nevertheless, every now and then there is a need to prune them. To separate the real ones from the unreal ones. This is what’s going on now. (It started last year.) Better to have fewer friends, but good ones, than hosts of lukewarm friends.
In astrology, we have a simple definition of a genuine friend. This is someone who wishes for you in your ‘fondest hopes and wishes’ and is willing to assist in the process. This will get you back in the coming year. I have heard another useful definition of a friend –, but it’s not astrological. ‘A true friend is someone who rushes in when everyone is rushing out.’*
It is fantastic to be involved in groups and organizations. Networking is part of your natural strengths. Nonetheless, here too some pruning is necessary. You can’t be involved in every group. You are to become more discerning. You have to separate the significant from the unimportant.
