Dear Sagittarius, this is your love horoscope for 2017:
While you will have to wait until the 1st December for Venus, planet of love to return to Sagittarius, her influence has helped shape the year before it even began and she will be hard at work long before then. Moving through Sagittarius from the 1st December to the 25th December, this will be more a chance to sum up what is likely to be an extraordinary year, with 2017 one of your best years for love and romance for a very long time. To start with you might need some convincing that this is the case, as you may have experienced some roadblocks or just a crisis of confidence in the later weeks of 2016. Yet from the get go it is likely to feel like something has shifted, with the love gods having given you a chance to lay old ghosts to rest. It was only in the final 48 hours of 2016 that you finally had a chance to turn your back on the past and look to the future. While there will be a new sense of romantic confidence and anticipation from the get go, the first evidence will come in the later days of January. It starts with Mars’ return to your romantic sector on the 28th January, but really gets exciting when Venus, planet of love returns on the 3rd February. While Mars will spend until the 10th March fuelling your romantic passions and fighting spirit and then moving on, it is Venus who is up to something special. The 24 days that Venus will normally spend in your romantic sector each year will be the most romantically charged in any year, except this year she’ll spend over three months. Venus will initially move through from the 3rd February to the 3rd April, but having already spent two months here, will retrograde back into your romantic sector for a double dip visit from the 28th April to the 6th June. Venus will spend half of her first visit in direct and half in retrograde motion, with the doors open to the past, second chances and untapped potential from the 4th March to the 3rd April. From Mars’ return to your romantic sector on the 28th January to Venus’ departure on the 6th June, they and the support crew there at the time, will make these some of the most romantically charged months in decades. Meanwhile, while your relationships will share the same attention, starting with Mars’ return on the 21st April and ending with Venus’ departure on the 31st July, she won’t return until the 5th July. Together Venus and Mars are having a huge impact on both matters of the heart and your relationships in the first seven months of the year. By the time Venus returns to Sagittarius on the 1st December, you’ll have a lot to reflect on.
