Mars is in Taurus, and when in Taurus it brings our passionate emotions toward things that make us feel comfortable.

But if you grew up in a difficult family environment or got into a few relationships that hurt you inside, passion can get twisted.

This can be one of the confusing things about Mars, the masculine form of passion renders while conjunct with crazy Uranus in Taurus.

On Sunday, things can remain cloudy as the Moon in Pisces speaks with Mars, perhaps causing confusion for some.

The Moon is conjunct with Neptune in Pisces, too, so this can create a sense that what is angry is love when in fact it is not. 

It's a good time to check your emotions, especially if you've felt like love was lacking or if things have been tense and you just want to make it all disappear by people-pleasing.

Sunday is a good day for looking into your own astrology for where Chiron, Mars is located to see how on a personal level you feel this the most, after reading your love horoscope for Sunday.

What today's love horoscope has in store for each zodiac sign on Sunday, January 17, 2021:



Mentally prepare. Mars gets challenged by dreams and illusions while the Moon and Neptune are in Pisces.
