Your love life has been in flux since 2011 thanks to Uranus, the planet of chaos and liberation, moving through your relationship sector. Over the last several years, if you’ve been in a committed partnership with someone, you’ve likely felt a seismic shift in terms of the status quo connected to your life as a couple. In fact, looking back, if you and your mate are still together, then your relationship is no longer recognizable compared to how it used to be.
That isn’t necessarily a bad thing. In fact, you’ve had an opportunity to liberate yourself from all of the outworn patterns of relating that you may have thought you had to hold on to in order to keep love alive. Much to your surprise, this might have woken you up to an exciting world of new possibilities in matters of the heart — even if the journey rattled you.
In some cases, you had to deal with a sudden breakup in order to reach a much-needed breakthrough in relationship matters. Although it hasn’t been easy, it has certainly taught you a great deal about balancing love and partnership in a healthier, less attached way.
Now, in 2018, the universe will give you a taste of calm from May 15-November 6, while Uranus leaves your partnership sector. These months will allow the dust to settle just enough for you and your current partner to know where you stand. It’ll allow any existing chaos to subside, allowing you both to decide what’s next — and if the next chapter includes each other.
If you’re single, a Solar Eclipse on February 15 might bring new romantic opportunity. Beware of the Lunar Eclipse on July 27, however … it might lead to an abrupt ending based on feeling betrayed or unable to forge the intimate bond you’d like. Also, from June 26-August 27, you might fall into the arms of an ex-lover and convince yourself that this time around it’ll be better. It may or may not be true, but this stretch of time will not be ideal for you to make any hasty decisions or reckless moves. If you happen to meet someone new, don’t begin a sexual relationship with him or her during this time. Mars will retrograde through your romance sector, and a new sexual relationship won’t be as fulfilling as you’d hope
