Monthly Love Horoscope For January 1 - 31, 2022


Monthly Love Horoscope For January 1 - 31, 2022

Your monthly love horoscope for January 1 - 31, 2022 is here with an astrology forecast for all zodiac signs.

The biggest transits when it comes to love and romance in January are Venus retrograde and Jupiter in Pisces, and this energy will also be affected by Mercury retrograde.

Venus retrograde is known for bringing past lovers back into your life, although since this Venus retrograde is also conjunct Pluto to varying degrees, it can be a little more intense than usual. Pluto can exacerbate things making them bigger than they need to be, or appear to be, but it can also remove or destroy things when it comes to love.


The dynamics of Pluto and Venus can be one of power struggle, control, and possession when it's manifested in unhealthy ways. Although it can also manifest a desirable and seductive vibe, which can help you to attract passionate partners into your life.

This can mean that you may have fun with someone during Venus retrograde, but that once it's over you discover that your relationship was based more on fun than something real and/or long-lasting. Jupiter will officially be in Pisces all of next year which started on December 28, 2021, so this may calm the energies of Venus retrograde a little.


Although with Mercury being retrograde for about two weeks of Venus retrograde, you may find yourself oscillating between having fun and engaging passionately, and having misunderstandings and miscommunications.

Taking things slow, steady, and not rushing into anything at this time will be very important if you want to be able to hang onto or maintain any new relationships. For those who are already coupled, it may be best to watch things that are said at this time or to watch out for things like slipping into old cycles in your relationships.
