The month -- and the New Year -- opens up with you fully immersed in all your feels. Don't worry; this will be a good thing, especially as it connects to love and relationships. You'll have complete awareness at this time when it comes to how you truly feel about the current trajectory of your love life, thanks to a rich Full Moon in Cancer on January 1. If you're single, it's time to get real about what you have to give someone emotionally, and make a decision to go after it without your protective hard candy-covered shell getting in the way. If you're in a relationship, this will be an illuminating time as well. You'll be able to pinpoint precisely where your lover leaves you feeling fulfilled and inspired, but you'll also have your pulse on what you might still be craving in this relationship. Fortunately, with the lines of communication open, you'll be able to reveal your needs -- and hopefully that will make your love life even more gratifying. After all, if your lover doesn't know what your needs are, how will he or she ever be able to meet them?
Later in the month, on January 17, Venus moves into Aquarius. Until February 10 you'll approach romance through a more detached lens where you're easily able to honor your lover's need to express his or her individuality. Friendship will be an essential component behind any potential new love relationship.
