Make time for love.

On November 9th when we experience Venus trine Mars — with Venus in Libra and Mars in Aquarius — this event in astrology will create the balance and desire to simply enjoy the love we’ve built with our partners. That's good news for our zodiac signs and love horoscope, but there's more to it than that.

After the tumultuous energy of the past month, this transit will breathe a sigh of relief into all of our lives, and while perhaps everything isn’t figured out, enough has been discussed so we will all be able to enjoy the person we love. While this transit lasts for just one day, the loving energy of Venus and Mars will linger with us for the remainder of the month.

These two planets are known as the celestial lovers, always have a great effect on our personal relationships. Mars is known to rule the masculine and Venus the feminine, so whenever we have these two planets meeting in the sky we know there will be an important moment in our romantic connections.

Sometimes it creates conflict or moments of upheaval, but this time around these two planets are trining one another, which means they are within sixty degrees of one another and are working to bring out the best possible qualities of both.

At the time of this transit, Venus will be in docile and loving Libra, a welcome change from the intense Scorpio energy that dominated October’s relationship atmosphere. Libra wants to work together, to find common ground, balance within the relationship, and will work for whatever she sees as being worth it.

In this case we are focusing on the love and the deep connection that we share with our partners. It’s been a rocky past few weeks and many of us have been through very difficult times with our partners, even thinking that things were over for good with them. But sometimes we experience those moments of difficulty not to break us up but to make us all that stronger.

We are meant to constantly be traveling and growing within our relationships, to be challenged and to be able to become better because of what we experience together. Difficult times are not excluded from this, and that is why this transit is so necessary for many of us; we simply need to remember why we love someone, why they stole our hearts in a way that no one else was able to, and why it’s worth going through the hard moments with them.

Mars rules the masculine and while this is a trine with his feminine counterpart, he is in Aquarius which can often be seen as a more independent sign than Libra; however, in this situation, because both planets are working together to bring out their strengths, it means what we could feel is a liberation in our relationships.

This feeling of freedom isn’t because we’re separating, but because we will discover the ease of the love we share with someone who is willing to go through the rough times with us and come out on the other side. We can feel our freest when we are loved and accepted for who we are.

November is set to be an important month in our romantic relationships, specifically those with a powerful soul contract like twin flames, and this alignment between the celestial lovers will set the backdrop for the action that we will see once Venus turns direct in about a week. A lot is set to change for us this month and while many of us will see things go differently than we had planned back in October, it will be a pleasant surprise.

This transit is about truly being present in the love that we share with another, but it’s also about making the time to love. It’s no shock that we get busy in our lives at times, that work, family or social obligations feel like they take precedence over the quality time with our partner. But while that can be normal, it doesn’t mean it should actually be that way.

Our romantic relationships can provide us with a great deal, from the motivation to better ourselves to being in that safe place in the world when things didn’t go as planned. What we have to remember is that what we put into our relationship is also what we get back.

We wouldn’t try to run our cars on hope alone, and the same is true for our romantic connections. If we actually want them to go someplace, we need to give them the gas they need to get there.

Venus and Mars want us to slow down, to focus on the relationship with our partner, the love, to go out for a date or send the kids to grandma's for the night, or even to make the choice to leave the office early. We all want love, but the truth is we have to make the time for it.

While most major developments this month won’t arrive until the second half, Venus trine Mars is a precursor to what we will see occurring. It will be that reminder that we really can get through anything, as long as we do it together. And we can actually fall in love and have it last forever.

The one thing to be mindful of is to not let the past interrupt this moment or even the future. If things happened during October that were difficult, don’t make this time about rehashing whatever doesn’t feel settled and don’t give up love for feeling right.

No one is perfect, no one is going to get it right all the time, but that doesn’t mean the love isn’t there; it only means we need to see that as being the most important thing instead of the wrong doings. We make time to work, to go to the gym, to have drinks with friends, and now it’s about making the time to just love the person who means the most to us.
