Horoscope for Aries

The Moon's departure from your relationship sector yesterday was always going to leave you feeling more emotionally engaged.

Horoscope for Taurus

The Moon is not just making its first visit to your relationship sector for the year but the first since the South Node's return last week.

Horoscope for Gemini

Mars' departure from your relationship sector yesterday may have left it empty but the Moon's return tomorrow will be a chance to check in.

Horoscope for Cancer

There is a lot happening on the romantic and relationship fronts today and it comes just as a busy start to the year is finally easing back.

Horoscope for Leo

Mars' departure from your romantic sector yesterday may have left it empty but the Moon's return tomorrow will ensure his romantic passions and fighting spirit are stowed away for ongoing use.

Just as Mars is spending his first full day in your romantic sector and just three days before Venus, the planet of love is due to turn direct here, Mercury retrogrades back in for a double dip visit, 24 days after leaving.

Meanwhile, the communication and relationship gods are in harmony today. - by your best friend astrologer

Horoscope for Libra

While Mercury will normally only spend 14 to 15 days in your romantic sector each year, 24 days after returning he retrogrades back out today, promising to return next month to do it all over again. With the Sun still in his first full week in your romantic sector and the solar spotlight just starting to fall onto matters of the heart and all things romantic, this not only buys you time but as Mercury leaves, is a chance to look to the future rather than the past. - by your best friend astrologer

Horoscope for Scorpio

The Moon is crossing the lunar nodes for the first time since they began an 18 month policing of a balance between your personal and relationship needs and the timing couldn't be better.

Horoscope for Sagittarius

Halfway between the North Node's departure from your relationship sector last week and the dwarf planet Ceres' return in seven days, there is both a drop in pressure but also a growing appreciation of what you want from your relationships and what they need from you. While the focus has shifted onto having the communication lines open this is in preparation for the next phase, with words able to flow more smoothly from today. - by your best friend astrologer

Horoscope for Capricorn

Just 24 days after leaving Capricorn, Mercury retrogrades back in today and with perfect timing. Mercury returns to find that Venus, the planet of love is still in retrograde motion here and as well as putting heart and mind back on the same page, this time with both focused on the past. Venus is just three days away from turning direct, at a time when the romantic tide is already turning. - by your best friend astrologer

Horoscope for Aquarius

Having Mercury, the planet of communication in Aquarius when the Moon made its first visit to your relationship sector for the year was an advantage. While they clashed this was a chance to flush out any issues and give them a voice. While Mercury retrogrades back out of Aquarius today he will be back by the time the Moon returns next month as a Full Moon, making it important to keep the communication lines open while he's gone. - by your best friend astrologer

Horoscope for Pisces

While the Moon will return to your romantic and relationship sectors every four weeks through the year and with no planetary activity in either this is a lifeline for both, the first visits for the year have already been banked. Whether it was last week's romantically charged Full Moon or the Moon's visit to your relationship sector over the weekend, the Moon has left you with all the insight needed for now. - by your best friend astrologer
