Aries Love Tarot Reading
Tarot Card for January: The High Priestess
The High Priestess is a card of depth and feeling -- not romantic feelings, but a very deep sense of awareness. Her appearance as your love card for January implies that all is not what it seems in your love life as you start the year. You see what's happening on the surface, but the High Priestess reveals that other influences are occurring -- things you can't see, but you can feel. You may experience many moments of something feeling "off" this month when it comes to your partner or your relationship. Trust your gut and follow up with your concerns; your subconscious mind knows more than you think. On the other hand, you could also "just know" this month that the romantic situation you're in is really going somewhere special ... trust your intuitions!
High Priestess love powers: intuition, revelation, depth
Taurus Love Tarot Reading
Tarot Card for January: Three of Cups
The Three of Cups is a warm card of closeness and friendship. It implies that there is much love in your life as you begin the year, even if it's not romantic love. There are people in your life who will be there with you no matter what, side by side, and will support you through all the ups and downs of your love life. If you're starting the year with a heavy heart, turn to these friends -- they know you better than anyone else and will lift you up. If you're a Taurus who's eager to find love, get a group of close friends together to go out and have a good time -- the happiness you radiate when you're with "your people" will be irresistible to onlookers!

Gemini Love Tarot Reading
Tarot Card for January: Strength
In terms of love, the Strength card could mean a few different things for you in January, Gemini. The obvious message is that you may face a romantic hardship this month and will need to call up your own strength in order to work through it. If this is the case, Strength is a positive indicator that you will be able to overcome whatever emotional setback you face. But Strength is very much a card of support, too, and its presence this month could imply that your romantic partner is actually the one who is struggling and needs your help. This will require you to put aside yourself and your needs for a while, but it's these sacrifices that directly reveal your level of love and support to your partner and solidify your bond.
Strength love powers: support, power, courage
Cancer Love Tarot Reading
Tarot Card for January: The Moon
As a Tarot card for love, The Moon can represent fears and falsehoods. Though it is connected to your subconscious, it's more associated with its shadow side... The Moon's appearance this month implies you may be starting the year with worries about the future of your love life. A new year is supposed to feel like a fresh start, but when you're still working through painful memories from the past, it's hard to begin anew. This is your gentle reminder that the past does not equal the future. Your fears are not truths. If you take a chance on love, there's no guarantee you won't experience heartache, but if you don't take the chance, you will certainly miss what may have been...
The Moon love powers: overcoming, fact & fiction, intuition
Leo Love Tarot Reading
Tarot Card for January: Four of Swords
What a wild few months its been! With the holiday season in full swing and you being the party animal you are, your dating and social life has probably been filling up the calendar. But the festivities are dying down and so is your energy, Leo. You are such a giver, it will hurt you to feel like you have nothing left to give to those you love ... but the Four of Swords arrives this month as a message to you to TAKE A BREAK. No, that doesn't sound very fun or romantic, but if you keep going hard without any rest, your heart will suffer. A little recuperation will give you an energy boost and, more importantly, an attitude boost that will get you more attention when you're back out on the scene.
Four of Swords love powers: re-energizing, self-love, solitude
Virgo Love Tarot Reading
Tarot Card for January: Six of Cups
It's the beginning of a brand-new year, but you still may be focused on the past, Virgo... The Six of Cups is a sweet card of nostalgia, yet it holds real lessons for the present moment. Its appearance here reveals you may be reminiscing about young love and days gone by ... about the time in your life when you trusted everyone and you'd never been hurt. While these are idealistic memories, you are far more experienced now, and have grown tremendously as a person since then. The magic of this card comes when you can live in the present with all the lessons you've learned, but hold on to that young innocence that makes you willing to open your heart again and again.
Six of Cups love powers: nostalgia, innocence, vulnerability

Scorpio Love Tarot Reading
Tarot Card for January: Four of Pentacles
The Four of Pentacles is a card about having a tight grip ... something you know very well, Scorpio! While the Pentacles cards tend to be more about money, they also have to do with what makes you feel safe and secure. As your love card for January, the Four of Pentacles reveals you may be clinging to a person or relationship because it makes you feel comfortable, even if it's not really what you want or need. Perhaps you feel that if you were to let go of the romantic situation you're in, it would be too scary to be alone or too difficult to find another available partner, so you stay where you are because it's safe. Take some time this month to consider other people and situations in your life that give you a sense of security and wellness, so you can approach your relationships with less dependence and more potential.
Four of Pentacles love powers: conservation, safety, release
Sagittarius Love Tarot Reading
Tarot Card for January: Five of Pentacles
The Five of Pentacles is a somber card to start out the year... It implies that your normally upbeat attitude has taken a hit lately due to feelings of loneliness or financial worry. You may be feeling very isolated, or you could be in a relationship where you feel you're no longer being taken care of. It could even be that too much holiday spending means you have no money to put toward going out or dating for a while. Either way, this month you are probably feeling like everyone has love except you. Don't fall into this trap. Reach out to those you've always been close with. With the Five of Pentacles present, loving support is available to you, but you will have to ask for it.
Five of Pentacles love powers: support, self-care, impermanence

Take a snowy winter hike with someone special or cozy up by an outdoor fire together -- nature will nurture your love.
