This is a great week for sharing secrets with the right person. If you are in love, secretive Pluto gets two harmonizing visits: from Venus, the planet of love, and the Sun, ruler of the ego. Harmony with the dark underlord planet, Pluto, allows you to reveal a secret in a sensitive and accepting atmosphere.

Meanwhile, chaotic Mercury ends its retrograde on Wednesday, delivering chaos all around. But chaos can be a good thing. After all, love at first sight can be chaotic, right? More about that next week!

This week ends with a New Moon in Virgo. A new start is coming and this is the week to wrap up old business.

Find your sign below and get ready for the week ahead!

  • Aries March 21 – April 19

    The first half of the week is a bit of a downer as your Mars ruler builds tension to Saturn. This is a limiting force. You will feel boxed in by a lover who seems to want to dominate you. If you are single, there will be a feeling of being shut out in your pursuit of happiness. Fortunately, the Moon mingles with Mars on Thursday and ushers in a relaxing weekend..

  • Taurus April 20 – May 20

    A strengthened partnership feels great! You are walking on air because you've built you're love life over a solid foundation. If you are a single Bull, a serious partnership pursuit arises on Thursday, but it may seem so casual and easy that you don't realize the love-life-altering potential that is right there.

  • Gemini May 21 – June 21

    Your Mercury ruler is changing direction and trying to get your life back to normal. But, is that what you really want? Has some crazy flirtatious passion recently been your reason for getting up in the morning? The chaos will subside by Sunday, so you may want to schedule some time for affection. Saturday night's meeting of the Moon and Mercury is your best bet for a memorable final summer fling.

  • Cancer June 22 – July 22

    Your lunar ruler is waning this week, and your commitment to a bossy partner may be on shaky ground. The Moon enters your sign on Wednesday and by the afternoon you will be ready to tell someone who is too pushy that you are done being shoved. A retreat to the arms of an ex may be in store for the weekend, if only for a temporary sense of security.

  • Leo July 23 – August 22

    Now that your solar ruler is in organized Virgo, prepare for a few stern lectures from a lover. Since the Lion hates to be criticized, try to catch yourself being evasive. The best thing to do would be to simply listen to what someone has to say and digest the bad news quickly. Sunday's New Moon wipes away tears and cleans your slate.

  • Virgo August 23 – September 22

    With the Sun in your sign and a birthday here or at least looming, information overload will manifest as a disorganized mess. Your Mercury ruler ends its retrograde on Friday, but you can bet the mess will accumulate into the weekend. The New Moon in your sign on Sunday is a big blessing. It is like the starting bell for a new approach to love and affection.

  • Libra September 23 – October 22

    Your Venus ruler has such a fun week in store for you. There is a pleasant transformation happening in your relationship to the outside world. Wednesday and Thursday bring insight into changes you can make to maximize your romantic pursuits. A challenge on the job front may force you to remain realistic, but a brush with greatness keeps you idealistic in the long term.

  • Scorpio October 23 – November 21

    Your Pluto ruler kicks off the weekend on Thursday night with a lustful dose of satisfaction. Whether you are on the giving or receiving end of this is less important than your conquest of a partner for whom you have longed. It will come quite easily and you may wonder what took so long when all is finished and you are quietly washing the bed sheets on Sunday afternoon.

  • Sagittarius November 22 – December 21

    In matters of the heart, this is basically a quiet week with some pleasant cuddling. Beyond affection, though, the next seven days are dominated by career matters. These will take you away from being too involved with your lover. It might be nice to purchase a gift and send some flirtatious text messages to reassure that you will be there soon for some making up and making out.

  • Capricorn December 22 – January 19

    If your Saturn ruler can survive tension from Mars on Thursday, it can survive anything. A disagreement with a lover might seem intractable midweek, but by Saturday it will all be forgotten. Love blossoms when the Moon harmonizes with Saturn on Saturday morning. Did someone say breakfast in bed?

  • Aquarius January 20 – February 18

    The feelings of togetherness with a lover may peak on Monday as tension with emotional Moon on Wednesday is exacerbated by that negative alignment of Mars to Saturn on Thursday. It is back to smooth sailing with a sweetheart after that, so plan ahead and schedule things to minimize your exposure to harsh midweek conditions.

  • Pisces February 19 – March 20

    The week gets off to an intense start as your ego is bruised when the Sun opposes your Neptune ruler. Would a lover not compliment you and hurt your feelings with silence? Are you deluding yourself about the direction a relationship is going? Tiptoe through the fog and see what clues about the likelihood of a partner committing to you arise with the New Moon in Virgo late Sunday night.
