Now that the love planet Venus is moving direct once more in your romance sector, you may think that your love life is in the clear. Not so fast. Although it's true that you'll have greater support overall when it comes to matters of the heart, there's a wrinkle in the month of February that even you won't be able to iron your way out of. That wrinkle is good old Mercury Retrograde.
On February 6 he'll begin his backtrack and will remain in hibernation mode. Since Mercury is your ruler, when he's out of phase you tend to feel it quite personally. Conversations just don't go the way you intend, despite your best efforts. Decisions made during this time ultimately require some type of reorganization and you might feel a greater sense of mental fog than usual. From February 6 until February 12 in particular, this may affect you in the partnership domain.
If you're in a committed relationship with someone, you won't want to initiate vital new conversations about the status of your partnership. You also don't want to sign important documents with your mate -- especially if they pertain to your alliance in any way. Avoid signing pre-nups or joining forces as business partners until Mercury has regulated his orbit -- after the February 28.
In the meantime, you'll have a phenomenal ability to nurture the spirituality of your relationship on February 23. On February 24 you'll also enjoy a positive boost in the love department thanks to strong and direct Venus embracing Saturn. Expect a conversation that makes you feel more secure in your relationship.
