You don’t need to have been cheated, mistreated, lied to or made blue to want some real, honest to goodness love and romance in your life.
If you keep meeting the wrong kind of partner, or no partner at all, and you’re tired of leaving things to chance and want to take control of your love life, you’ve come to the right place.
This book aims to show you not only when you’ll meet your true love, but also where you’re likely to meet him or her, as well as what he or she will be like, so you’ll recognize your partner-to-be as soon as your paths cross.
You might be wondering how can this possibly work as isn’t astrology all down to fate? In fact it’s all down to cycles which repeat over and over again, with slight variations that make things more (or less) favorable to achieving the romantic outcome you want.
For instance Mars, the planet of passion and one that’s very helpful in working out timings for relationships, is in exactly the same place only once every two years for about eight weeks, so miss that and it could potentially mean a two year wait until your next window of opportunity for romance.
But there are in-between times when the quest for true love all works out beautifully.
With a few easy-to-follow guidelines, you can pinpoint these to help put you in the right place at the right time to meet your love match.
There’s the potential for love in everyone’s future, but it can take a while for circumstances to be just right. There’s no point simply sitting at home waiting for love to come knocking on your door. That might just happen, and you might well fall for the TV repair man or the person who delivers your pizza, but it’s much more likely to occur if you pursue some of the options outlined in the chapters for your sign. These will put you in the perfect place and the right mindset for the right person to connect with you when the timing is also spot on.
So in the meantime you need to get in touch with what you love. Dress up, put more effort into your friendships and personal pleasures, and fill your life with beauty and happy experiences each day. Nothing is more attractive than a person who’s already fulfilled. Who would you rather date: Someone who’s waiting for someone else to come along to make them happy, or someone who’s genuinely in love with their life and radiating joy?
Live your life to the fullest. Be interesting, be interested and you’ll be working with the planets to help you meet your ideal partner. Putting your life on hold if your ideal astro love time is months away is letting yourself down and not taking advantage of the planetary energies that want you to develop to be the kind of person your ideal partner is looking for too.
Sometimes this will mean stepping out of your comfort zone and trying something different, or finding yourself in a place you’d never normally consider going to, but that’s how the magic happens. If you always do the same thing, the same way, you’ll always meet the same kind of lover, so you’ll go through the same kinds of situations you’ve always been through, leaving you frustrated, loveless and back where you started.
Now’s your chance to take control of your love life.
And if you think you must be getting a little desperate or crazy to consult the stars to find true love, think again. Back in the day (we’re talking 16th century) astrology was highly regarded and almost exclusively for society’s elite, for royalty and for the important decision-makers of the time. The finest minds in the land would use their knowledge of the movements of the planets to select the most beneficial timings for major events.
Queen Elizabeth the First’s coronation date was specifically chosen by the Royal Astrologer, Dr John Dee, to take place on 15th January 1559, and she went on to become one of the most powerful and revered monarchs of all time. There wasn’t a lot of romance for Good Queen Bess, the virgin queen, however, as her specially chosen day was all about her career. But your special days will be all about your love life.
While the key point here is that each sign of the zodiac has opportunities when love and the chances of meeting that special someone are higher than at other times, it’s worth also realizing that your true romance might not be with the kind of person or Sun sign you’d normally fall for, so keep an open mind.
You may have read that if you’re an Earth sign, pleasure-loving Taurus for example, you’ll get on best with the other Earth signs, meticulous Virgo and sensible Capricorn. The same goes for the Air signs and it’s true there are compatibilities for quick-thinking Gemini, stylish Libra and quirky Aquarius. If you’re a Fire sign you’ll share certain qualities with action-oriented Aries, limelight-loving Leo and adventurous Sagittarius. And if you’re ruled by Water you may have an emotional connection with nurturing Cancer, mysterious Scorpio and intuitive Pisces. Certainly you’ll have something in common with those signs who share your element, but that doesn’t necessarily mean they’ll be a match made in the heavens.
There’s so much more to it all than just your Sun sign and your element, and you’re about to see how loving Venus, passionate Mars and lucky planet Jupiter’s influence will improve your chances of finding true love too.
Using this book you’ll be activating your romance zone (or 5th house), which in the world of astrology relates to romance, engagements and taking a risk or a gamble, in this case, on love.
It’s easy and more effective than you can imagine. And you don’t need to be an astrology expert to understand it and make it work.
Think of it as the love equivalent of being on a diet without having to eat less or exercise more!
And don’t worry either if you’ve loved and lost before. You may have thought that he or she was ‘the one’, but at different times in your life a different kind of partner can suit you more than someone you thought was just your type, or even your soulmate. Be open to new experiences and again you’ll increase your chances of finding someone who’s right for you, right now and forever.
So does this really work? I tested the theory on myself and was amazed to find that the most important and long-lasting relationship I’ve had was with a Gemini guy I met while producing a book, working in the offices of a former school. Gemini rules literature (books) and education (school), and my Venus sign is Gemini. The day we met we were both in a strong Venus cycle (an age that’s a multiple of 7) and Venus and Mars were close together (or conjunct) in the skies, which is one of the best times of all for a relationship to start. We were together for 14 years and are still very good friends.
I looked into this further and found that each key relationship in my life started when Venus and Mars were locked in an astrological embrace.
Astrology worked for me and I’m going to show you how it can work for you. So let’s get started, as timing is everything!
