Your sharp mind usually helps you make smart decisions that you are able to stick to. But when it comes to matters of the heart, you can be swayed by emotions just like everyone else. The need to respect your feelings is especially important from February 6-28, when your brainy ruling planet Mercury is retrograde.

What makes this particular Mercury Retrograde cycle so important is that it starts in dreamy Pisces and your 7th House of Partners. This can be a complicated period when making up your mind about relationships might be difficult. And while clear thinking is an asset, don't forget to consider your heart instead of letting your head run the show.
Pride comes before the fall
If you're not happy with a current alliance, talking yourself into it won't overcome your feelings, which is why they need should not be ignored. Don't let pride get in the way of changing your mind, if that's what you need to do to get back on track.
Another important period is from October 26 until December 4, when assertive Mars is in ambitious Capricorn and your 5th House of Romance. This is an excellent time to go after who and what you want. You might even be ready to try out new forms of fun and to be more in control of your social life.
Interestingly, 2014 begins with alluring Venus retrograde in Capricorn, which could find you pining for someone from your past. But if you're on the fence about love, Venus' forward turn on January 31 should start putting you in a more decisive mood.
