Happy New Year! Welcome to YourTango's monthly love horoscope column from astrologer Ellen Whitehurst! Look up your astrological sign to see what kind of love and romance January is bringing your way. Please note: the predictions provided here follow Western astrological dates.
ARIES (March 21 to April 19)
Mercury the Messenger will turn tail and go retrograde on January 5. While many people think this is a tense astrological time, I'm here to tell you that this is really just a time to review and revise. As such, you might see an old love come back into your life. And, it does look as if this could happen in an unusual or even a surprising way. I suspect you two will feel like not a day has passed, no matter how much water is under that bridge. The Sun will pack up — heading into this sign and house on January 20, so get out and about. Place social activities at the top of your to-do list!
TAURUS (April 20 to May 20)
GEMINI (May 21 to June 20)
Venus, the Goddess of Love will spend most of this month in your 7th House of Partners and One-On-One relationships; all of this will take place in adventurous Sagittarius, a sign that shares your own sense of restlessness and curiosity. This bodes very well for your encounters, especially if you're single (which could certainly change around January 12). Keep an eye out for a new admirer who could come telling stories that delight and entertain you.
CANCER (June 21 to July 22)
Aggressive Mars is in intense and sexy Scorpio this month. So, if you're currently not seeing anyone, that could certainly change if you get out there, wearing your heart on your sleeve.
You might get lucky (wink) on January 17, 18, or 19 and you just might meet someone who occupies all the space in your heart and head. This special someone will fascinate you in a major way, so make sure that you take the time to get to know anyone who catches your eye ... before you spend serious time batting your lashes at them.
LEO (July 23 to August 22)
VIRGO (August 23 to September 22)
The sizzling Sun, Venus (the Goddess of Love) and Mercury will all spend a little time in your 5th House of True Love this month! So get ready for a lively and lovely social life. The thing is, with Mercury set to go retrograde from January 5 through January 25, an old lover could come back into your life asking for a second chance to romance you.
Just a word of caution, think long and hard before you get involved again, unless you're positive that you have new answers to old problems — problems that plagued you in the first place. Otherwise all systems are GO!
LIBRA (September 23 to October 22)
SCORPIO (October 23 to November 21)
SAGITTARIUS (November 22 to December 21)
CAPRICORN (December 22 to January 19)
AQUARIUS (January 22 to February 18)
Venus, the Goddess of Love, will stay on duty in fiery and funny Sagittarius until January 23, and since this puts her magnetic energy in your 11th House of Friends and Groups (+Hopes, Wishes, and Dreams) at no time this month will you feel lonely. In fact, I would put money on you attracting admiration and attention of a friend-of-a-friend who is just ga-ga over you. This could be someone who lives in another state, even if it's a state of mind to win you over hook, line, and sinker.
PISCES (February 19 to March 20)
Lovely Venus will spend her time in Sagittarius and your 10th House of Professional Recognition and Reward, as well as dealing with people in power and/or authority figures. This energy will swirl all around you until January 23, giving you a good three weeks to show off all of your charms and promote yourself ... both in your personal life and in your professional one, as well.
Trust me, with Sagittarius on board it won't be hard to get that promotion, bonus, raise, or even a new love. If you're already attached you will see your current love life heating up in different (wonderful) ways.
