Timing is everything in romance. Astrologically speaking, there are favorable romantic times when you should circulate more, knowing that the odds are higher for you to find love and romance. ...Here are some of the most promising periods of all in the months ahead for members of your astrological sign when Venus, the planet of love, will be in either in your sign, in your solar fifth house of romance, or in your seventh house of partners. If you know your rising sign, consult that sign also. Depending on your individual chart and the placement of your natal planets, there may be other periods when romance is highlighted. You'll learn more about that in my book.
