There might not be much playful romance this month, but you and your partner will surely be paying attention to your bottom line. Joint finances are a certain focus thanks to a flurry of planetary activity across your 8th House of Shared Resources. Until January 17 you'll have Venus moving through this part of your chart, so it's possible that your partner will receive good financial news about his or her earnings -- especially near January 3. A generous raise or bonus is possible, and if that happens, it'll surely be mutually beneficial.
From January 11-13 you and your sweetheart will have a realistic conversation about money. This might initially be uncomfortable since it will require you both to recognize your limitations and also come to an agreement on long-term financial goals. The tricky part will be navigating past one of you having a more frugal or even hoarding mentality, while the other appears quite the opposite. Again, reconciling these extremes might be tricky, but it's not insurmountable. A powerful New Moon on January 16 will help.
Single? After the 17th you might meet someone at school if you're studying for an advanced degree or, it's possible that you'll encounter someone who captivates you through spiritual studies (literally meeting someone at church or other place of worship) or as you travel abroad. One way or another, romantic possibilities are much more open by the end of the month. Someone might even declare his or her feelings for you on the 31st. You'll love what you hear!
