The planets move into different areas of the zodiac every year, with each planet bringing its specific characteristics to whichever house it鈥檚 in during that year. Jupiter is the planet of love, blessings, hope, growth, opportunity, miracles, healing and harmony. Libra is the zodiac sign that dominates our one-on-one relationships. Put the two together and, as Ambi says, 鈥淗oly greatness! This is the year of love.鈥

She says to expect quick proposals, sudden engagements, lots of babies and, conversely, lots of breakups. 鈥淭here鈥檚 often a purging process that has to happen first,鈥 she explains. 鈥淭hink of this period like a garden: First you have to till and clear the ground before the seeds can be planted.鈥 She says this is a time to create harmony in your relationship with yourself, 鈥渃lear up old relationship karma鈥 and work out any baggage you may be toting around from your past.

And while the universe always has your back, Ambi says you can鈥檛 just 鈥渟it back on your bum鈥 and wait for Jupiter to deliver your soulmate to your doorstep this year. She suggests writing down what you most need and want from your partner and to also seriously think about what you can offer your future bae. In other words, manifest your ideal relationship.

Additionally, if you鈥檝e been giving your Tinder account a major workout lately, Ambi suggests being 鈥渁 bit more discerning鈥 this year. If you鈥檙e newly single or have been shy to swipe, she encourages you to 鈥済et out there and invite love back in.鈥 She explains that 鈥淟ibra is the sign of the scales, so it鈥檚 all about balance. This is the time for an equal partnership in your life.鈥

Jupiter will be in Libra until October 10, 2017, and with all the new singles on the dating scene (Brad Pitt, are you reading this?!), it feels like we鈥檙e in for quite a dramatic and positive year. 鈥淭here鈥檚 an opening in the universe鈥 and it鈥檚 an amazing time for better relationships,鈥 Ambi says. We鈥檙e ready!
