2006 LOVE FORECAST- BY TIM STEPHENS
Until December Jupiter, the planet of weddings and good luck, wades through
Scorpio - the sign of deep, mysterious sex, of sex that binds, of secrets and
lover's trysts, of pregnancy and births and deaths, of huge, sometimes
cataclysmic changes - to lifestyles, to power structures, and, yes, to
marriages. It's a serious, down-in-the-trenches year for love. We either put up
or shut up. Actions speak louder than words, and needs and desires will be more
powerful than ideals and "rules." Forget fair courtship; this is necessity,
reality, grit and gusto. Some try to seduce the boss or other "power" figures.
We'll be practical in romance, yet sentimental. Love this year can lead to a
shared mortgage, business or lifestyle.
That lucky Jupiter in sexy Scorpio promises more physical urges than usual
(and a trumpeting of sex in the media). But sensual love faces two big
challenges this year. Those who commit now - before December - will have to
shoulder some burden for love. This could be stepchildren, or an extra career
duty, perhaps a reduced income. In addition, though sex binds, it might lead to
a relationship in which you'll eventually worry about your security, your
attractiveness, and your sexual prowess. Or about your partner's ultimate
fidelity. Clearly, we need to temper animal attraction with emotional, social,
and moral considerations. Be honorable, and demand it from another. Be with a
person you respect, and make sure he/she respects you.
In December, lucky Jupiter jumps into Sagittarius - suddenly, love demands no
sacrifices, and its sultry, simmering intensity is replaced by a cheerful
camaraderie. It's goodbye lust, hello friendship. Love now has a better chance
of life-long lastingness.
- (March 21-April 19)
blossoms in 06. Sex, lust, boudoir trysts pop up everywhere.
Yet romance (respect, courtship, and social bonding)
progresses v-e-r-y slowly. Slow romance has an advantage,
though: from December onward it can bring a durable, deep
and strong marriage - perhaps with someone higher up the
economic ladder. Lust is fine, but don't commit your future
If you're married, involve your mate
in a financial, investigative or lifestyle project - and
reject that sexy outsider! Young couples are very fertile
now. (A baby born December 06 through August 07 will have a
lucky birth chart).
In general, avoid wedding and
divorcing before July.
March/April's flirtation lifts your
spirits. Your physical attractiveness glows in May. Your
romantic courage soars in June/July, and sensual pleasures
knock on your door! Cautious romance pulls you quietly in
August. Autumn brings a commitment decision - do you fight,
or join? November climaxes a year of lustful urges -
careful! December starts a whole year of gentle, true, sweet
back to top
- (April 20-May 20)
You've just entered one of the
finest love periods of your life, Taurus! Now through
2008 you'll meet a parade of exciting, desirous - and
challenging - love prospects. If you're happily
married, 2006 brings a bouncy new optimism. But if
you've been stifled, you'll strike out for freedom.
Love might involve a
foreign-born person, or travel to another country.
You'll meet attractive prospects in social and sports
clubs, libraries, law offices, church or school
Through November, career or
domestic duties - long hours, single parenting, etc. -
might interfere with amour. But potential lovers you
meet from December onward will consider your
career/home situation an attractive asset.
February heightens love
between sweethearts. March brings an old but
unreliable friend, May a sexy and reliable new friend!
Late summer's streak of romantic intensity will climax
in November/December, confronting you with a crucial
choice - the right one will usher you into a new
world! December through February 2007 brings deep,
mysterious intensity - you're playing for keeps -
- (May 21-June 20)
For the last 10 years the cosmos
has tossed and kneaded your love life like pizza
dough. Opposition, sadness and struggle have molded
you into a wiser, more compassionate person. By
December/06 onward, you'll be ready for a real,
vibrant, healthy relationship with no illusions and no
self-delusions. If you're married, you and your spouse
will grow into a rock-solid couple by late 2006 into
2007 - if not, you might separate in 2007.
Before December, you'll wrestle
with themes of truth, acceptance, loyalty and
abandonment. Ordinary conversations with your lover or
spouse take on deeper meanings. Sometimes, the right
words will elude you.
Your sex appeal and friendly
charm soar mid-February into April. This summer you're
tempted to grow intimate with someone you know would
not fit with your life. September/October bring "true
December begins a twelve-month
bonanza of love prospects -- at last! You could meet
your future life mate - an exciting, bright,
travel-loving person. Be willing and ready!
- (June 21-July 22)
The biggest romantic wave in over
a decade swells through November. It's certain to
bring you a major chance at love's elevated joys!
Romance could occur with a co-worker or colleague - or
while you're traveling, publishing, arguing a legal
case, researching or attending school. Love is studded
with "lucky coincidences" - yet it also demands
sacrifices, or major financial, intimate or lifestyle
adjustments. Study these carefully before implementing
them. You could wed impulsively.
If you're married, your mate
grows more intimate and more intent on building your
family fortunes. Take him/her on a vacation to
far-flung places, or join a sports, fitness, or
pleasure-oriented club. Your children please you very
much this year.
March, July, November - and
February of 2007 - could bring a quick invitation from
an old flame. Your ambitions surge in April/May -
somehow this makes you glow with sex appeal! Late
summer travels create amorous opportunities. November
brings an intense romantic surge. Wait until December
(or 2008) to totally commit your future.
(July 23-Aug. 22)
Until December, Leo, life offers
you a domestic, private, secure, nurturing love. You
can embrace this, or you can opt for a quiet,
rejuvenating single state. Staying single keeps you
eligible for December and 2007's superbly lucky
you're married, intimacy and family affection
regenerate, and your children bless you. Unhappy
couples face the best year in a decade to end a
relationship in a healthy, freeing way.
All year (and into 2010)
you'll attract sexy but indecisive, dreamy, elusive
people. Be sympathetic (rather than stern or
mistrustful) but reject anyone who overindulges in
drink or drugs.
A chatty friend offers
intimacy February through April. This friend isn't as
certain as he/she appears. Weddings trigger joyous
hopes. Your romantic courage surges in June, bringing
sweet, promising flirtations. Your natural confidence
attracts a "worrier" in August. All relationships
climax in November - commit or split! (Be patient at
December starts a 12-month
wave of adventure, beauty, creativity and pleasure -
love is imminent!
- (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)
2006 offers a parade of exciting,
unpredictable, challenging and swiftly moving love
prospects. But by the time you're halfway through
analyzing one relationship, it's gone and another
appears. It's difficult to settle down and commit. So
why not go with the flow? Accept the adventure, have
fun, and know that from 2008 onward you're going to
start finding true love. The one exception exists for
Virgos who fell sweetly in love during the past six
months. For you, 2006 will reveal a hundred
undiscovered complexities in your loved one's
personality - observe, analyze, and adjust!
2006 won't lack friendship,
flirtation, or physical gratification. You'll find it
easier than usual to chat with someone new. A friendly
yet sexy affair could develop anytime, especially from
mid-April through May, and when old flames appear in
March, July and November. (November strikes sparks at
every turn!) Your sensuality lures others in
December into 2007 brings a
renewed desire for domestic bliss - and perhaps a
- (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)
Your social life fades in 2006,
but intimacy deepens. If you entered a powerful sexual
relationship last year, test it now for "marriage
qualities." 2006 brings you easy, casual sensual
relationships, but not ones that necessarily fit your
long-term needs. Don't feel you have to accept a
deeper bond with anyone.
Now through April, a chirpy,
smooth and elusive person could introduce you to a
gentle but vast realm of feelings. If you first meet
in April, wedding bells could ring! March features an
"old lust" - and consequent indecision.
June/July brings a whirl of
outings. You could meet a proud, generous prospect at
a social function. Don't let August's casual fling tie
up your future. Your determination to meld with
another this autumn could either succeed - or leave
you embarrassed. Be cool; act slowly. November's
powerfully sensual, but dicey: others have hooks to
snare your future.
A friendly, fresh romantic
trend arrives in December - it begins a lucky year of
fun and travel!
- (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)
A six-month storm of fiery
emotions ends abruptly in February. You'll be more
cheerful in 2006 than you've been in a decade, and
that cheerfulness will attract many admirers!
Late February and March
present a sweet dilemma. An old flame could reappear,
or you might grow indecisive about a special person.
This phenomenon - indecision and old attractions -
also occurs in July and November. You're in a period
of transition, of exciting but unstable romantic
"adventuring" - it's preparing you for the huge "true
love" phase of 2011 onward.
If you don't want the
insecurity of adventure, you can easily establish a
deeply domestic love tryst, one that holds many
mysteries_perhaps too many mysteries.
You'll attract a lot of
attention from the opposite sex in March, July, and
November. Someone feisty wants to marry in May.
November heightens your sex appeal, and brings love
matters to a hot peak. Decide carefully whether you
really want someone!
December into 2007 features
easily sensual, almost casual affairs.
- (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)
Through November, you'll be drawn
toward meditation, healing and spiritual progress -
romance might not even interest you!
But you'll face multiple
opportunities for excitement, should you want them.
Late February to April brings a challenging,
fascinating individual - true "mate material." Don't
let arguments block desire. If you first meet in
March, this relationship's vigor might be hobbled by
The spring brings sexy and
intimate love - and demands commitment. If you can't
commit, you'll separate. In June, you might fall
gently for someone whose mind you admire. July brings
sexual puzzlement and/or an old lust. You'll spy an
intriguing person at a social function in
September/October. In November, shut the door and
December begins a year of huge
optimism, determination, cheerfulness and luck. You're
going to change your attitude - and perhaps your whole
life! Your surging enthusiasm and energy makes your
sex appeal soar in December/January - a fitting start
to a year of happiness. A wedding might await you in
- (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)
If you attracted a thrilling
person in the last few months, keep the love fires
burning - this affair could lead to marriage! If
you're already married, engage in financial and
lifestyle projects together. Design your children's
future before July.
Your social life expands this
year: many calls, trips and emails will offer a parade
of contacts, new faces, and mini-adventures. Deep
beneath this bouncy social surface, you're studying
your future, deciding whether to make a life-altering
commitment to someone.
Don't be discouraged if
intimacy is slow to develop. A reluctant person only
reflects your own caution. Once closeness is achieved,
it will grow deeply.
An old flame might appear in
March, July or November. May's exciting, challenging
stranger could represent deep domestic bliss. June
through August trigger deep sexual desires - and some
indecision. Avoid "co-worker lust" in June and
October. November's intense social whirl creates
December begins a year of
quietude. January/February could bring someone who
wants to share your private world.
Life turned serious last summer.
You're no longer satisfied with light, playful
romance. You want depth and commitment - and your own
depth and loyalty will be tested. You'll have to make
multiple approaches to win someone's heart. You might
woo a much older or younger person.
Or, you might decide to put off
the search for ideal love - until December, when more
attractive, viable and lucky prospects appear.
Your heart could go zing late
February to mid-April - someone's sexiness radiates,
and your romantic courage soars. Don't let March's
indecision bog you down. Sweet affection drifts into
your thoughts in late May - this could lead to an
exciting, challenging, even feisty back-and-forth
between you and another all summer. October brings
sweet, gentle love, but it's probably not strong
enough to survive the press of November's career
December starts a year of
popularity and social delights. You could meet love of
a happy, practical and long-lasting kind at a group
function, perhaps right in December/January!
- (Feb. 19-March 20)
Love and travel join hands this
year, Pisces. Fly to foreign lands with your mate. If
you're single, look for love in airports, foreign
countries, colleges, libraries, law offices,
philosophy or sports clubs, places of worship, and
publishing or media firms. You're electric,
unpredictable and a bit impatient this decade. If you
want love to blossom, show your soft side!
Wedding bells will ring for some
of you this year. Ceremonies scheduled for December or
the first eight months of 2007 will promote a marriage
of stability, depth, and financial and practical
An ex-mate could trigger
nostalgia, confusion, and domestic tension in March.
Old flames also snag your thoughts in July and
November. Your romantic courage surges in May: speak
up! Late summer brings a challenging person - it could
be love or hate! It's all or nothing this autumn: deep
commitment, or separate paths. December into next
February brings a prestigious love, or the dawn of
career and business success - or both!
