Remember back in February when Venus was in retrograde and our astrological goddess guide Ambi Sitham told us we had a lot of relationship work to do before the 鈥渟ummer of love鈥 came knocking? (Ugh, how many of us went through crucial breakups this spring?) Well, the hot season is (finally, gloriously) upon us, and we鈥檝e got the taco recipes and bucket lists to prove it. Of course, we needed to know just how this summer is cosmically connected to our love lives, so we chatted with Sitham to find out exactly what sort of partnership karma we should expect through September.

Jupiter Stations Direct in Libra 鈥 June 9

Jupiter is 鈥渁ll about cosmic abundance, rules, peace, and harmony, and governs committed relationships,鈥 Sitham explains. The planet has also been in retrograde for months (which means its energy has been murky) and will station direct in Libra on June 9. This means that we can expect 鈥渢he clear, harmonious energy of Jupiter鈥檚 power to infuse our one-on-one relationships for the next four months.鈥 Additionally, Libra is the sign of balance, partnership, and harmony, so with the planet and sign working together, you can expect a lot of 鈥渨e energy鈥 that blends peace and partnership. Sitham suggests 鈥渢aking the hard lessons of the last few months and bringing the romance back into your life 鈥 you鈥檝e got the cosmic assistance to make this a summer of fun!鈥

New Moon in Leo 鈥 July 23

The moon has two nodes; the north node rules future destiny while the south node rules past karma. On July 23, the new moon鈥檚 north node will be in Leo, so Sitham says, 鈥淚t鈥檚 all on!鈥 Leo rules the zodiac鈥檚 fifth house, which is all about children, pleasure, love, and creative self-expression. Basically, Sitham continues, this means that our collective 鈥渄estiny is moving into children, love, and romance.鈥 It鈥檚 a time to expect pregnancy announcements, engagements, and, of course, lots of weddings. With Leo in our fifth house, it鈥檚 a wonderful time to focus on having fun and being creative with those we love. For single gals, it鈥檚 the perfect time to push yourself outside your comfort zone and meet people the old-fashioned way 鈥 consider a backyard BBQ or pottery class.

Solar Eclipse in Leo 鈥 August 21

The total solar eclipse on August 21 is a major cosmic event for astrologists and astronomers alike, and everyone is suggesting those of us in the US get ourselves to the 鈥減ath of totality鈥 to truly experience its intensity. But even if you can鈥檛 make your way to Missouri to check it out, you can set some serious manifestations for the following six months during the second new moon in Leo of the summer. Sitham shares that a new moon eclipse holds even more powerful 鈥 and long-lasting 鈥 energy than a regular new moon, so this is a perfect cosmic window of opportunity to think about what you want for your life (and relationships) for the rest of 2017.
