If you're married or in a committed relationship, romance may finally come back into your life this month, much to your delight! From December 21-January 31 love planet Venus travelled retrograde in your partnership sector. During this time it was likely that you and your mate spent time re-valuating the efficacy of your union. If it withstood the tests then you have now come out of that phase stronger than ever. In fact, you'll likely feel especially secure and in love with your significant other around February 24.
If you are single or dating someone new, it's possible that you'll have a bit more struggle in February. That's because Mercury will turn retrograde on February 6. Love will feel especially difficult to obtain around February 11 and again on February 19 because you will have a harder time asking for what you want from someone you are attracted to. As a result, you may feel tempted to isolate yourself and go it alone rather than risk potential rejection. While it's true that you're feeling a greater amount of caution when it comes to protecting your heart, remember that love is always a gamble on some level. If you aren't willing to take a risk, you'll never win the jackpot.
Certain Cancers may decide to give a lover (not a marriage partner) a second chance this month. If so, it's possible that you'll spend most of February questioning your judgment. Take things slow. After February 28 you'll have all the clarity you need to make an informed decision about your relationship status. One thing is clear: you're not interested in casual affairs these days. When it comes to love … it's all or nothing.
