As you begin a new year, you mean business when it comes to love and partnership. That's because Venus, the planet that rules love, will be moving retrograde through your relationship sector until January 31, prompting you to reassess the viability of your union. In addition, a harsh New Moon on January 1 may set into motion a "do or die" attitude with your mate about keeping things genuine and getting it right.
Don't allow this serious Astrology to intimidate you. The truth is if there are holes in your relationship, it's not a surprise. You've known for a long time that you and your mate need to give a little TLC to couple-hood. The question is: Do you want to? If the answer is yes, then this is the month to start dating and flirting with your partner again. What drew the two of you together in the first place? Reconnect from that level, even if the years have taken you so far from that initial stage of your lives. You might make exceptional progress on January 7.
A Full Moon in your sign on January 15 will make you aware of what's truly in your heart. Are you fully committed to each other and working through any rough patch, or are you ready to move on?
If single, an old flame may come back into your life around January 11, and you may find yourself entertaining thoughts of reconciliation. By January 25, however, a conversation with this person may remind you of why things didn't work out the first time. You may second guess the reunion after all.
