Monthly Love Horoscope For All Zodiac Signs For January 2023

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

It's a brand-new month and year; the stars align to show you how patience and love always go together.

January is always known as the start of a new year, but as the month known for fresh starts progresses, motivation may be lacking—why?

We look to Mars, the planet that rules motivation and action, but currently, Mars is retrograde in Gemini, delaying changes in our relationships due to problems in communication, both personally and collectively.

As a result, many of us left 2022 feeling frustrated and impatient; there have been great moments, but didn't it seem like the universe was blocking big changes?

The truth may be that we were being blocked in various ways because practicing patience teaches us to love in genuine and selfless ways.

So many of us needed this time to clarify our priorities and motivations to make choices that align with our deepest desires. Now that January is here, it will feel like the beginning of a different chapter of your life.

Romantic days for January 2023:

Monday, January 2nd

The year starts with a completely new romantic energy as Venus, the planet of love, shifts into the air sign of Aquarius. Aquarius is the rebel of the zodiac, preferring to make up their blueprint for love and for life. This energy will have you walking in the direction of your true north regarding relationships.

It may be towards what feels like absolute true love or away from what you can no longer fool yourself into believing in. Air signs like to talk, so communication will be highlighted this month which is perfect for making plans and figuring out where you want to take your relationship this month and in the next year.

Friday, January 6th

The Full Moon in Cancer occurs today opposite the Sun in Capricorn. This draws themes around the work and life-balance that is often a major part of romantic relationships. The Cancer Moon encourages you to focus on your home, your committed relationship and your family.

At the same time, the Capricorn Sun reminds you of your responsibilities and obligations to the outside world. There will be a feeling that something important was overlooked around this lunation which will urge you to focus more on what you truly value and what adds to your life. Uranus and the North Node, which govern unexpected changes and fate, will figure heavily into this event, signifying that an important realization is in store.

Thursday, January 12th

Finally, after a couple of long, frustrating months, Mars, the planet of action, turns direct into Gemini. Mars first entered this air sign at the end of August and has been giving you time to reflect on your motivations for your choices, specifically in your romantic life. Once it turned direct at the end of October, forward action felt impossible.

It was the feeling of being stuck in a difficult situation as you knew what you wanted but still had no idea how to start creating it. Usually, the holidays can be challenging to create changes within your relationships, especially if a separation is in store; however, this year, it proved impossible.

More options will open up now that Mars is direct. Life will seem to resume once again. The only thing to remain aware of is that Mars will now revisit the same degrees of Gemini that it moved through at the end of last year, but this time, you have learned what you were meant to do so that you can finally move forward.

Mercury turns direct today in Capricorn after its first retrograde of the new year. Mercury retrograde is a time to review past events and plans so that you can make better decisions that are more in alignment with your own needs. In Capricorn, you review the stability of your plans and what you had hoped your relationship would develop into. As Mercury turns direct, you have had time to review and make changes, which means it is also time to put your plans into action.

Friday, January 20th

The Sun moves into Aquarius today, beginning Aquarius Season. Aquarius Season is a time to tune into your inner voice and reflect on what you need from love and what kind of relationship genuinely reflects your desires. Aquarius will go to any lengths for what it believes in and may even purposely try to do things differently just to be seen as unique.

Honoring your partner’s specialness around this zodiac season becomes important so they can feel you fully see them. Use this season to bring in some unexpected dates or quality time together. Focus on what makes you who you truly are and what makes your relationship unique.

Saturday, January 21st

New Moon in Aquarius is a positive omen that deep transformation is occurring within yourself and your relationship. Aquarius can detach from the intense emotionality of a situation and see things as they are, and this energy will be especially true around this New Moon.

Expect opportunities for deeper healing and release of the past around this moon. Although the New Year will be in full swing by this point, it seems that there is something that you are still carrying or that is weighing on you, which is affecting your romantic future. This lunation alongside abundant Jupiter and transformative Pluto helps you clear the path ahead in a new and exciting way.

Sunday, January 22nd

The planet known for shocking and awe-inspiring events, Uranus, turns direct into Taurus. This planet has been retrograding since August of 2022, helping you to understand where you still feel restricted within your life and what changes you would make if you knew without a doubt that you would be successful.

Although Uranus retrograde is a wonderful time to reflect on the changes you would like to make, it rarely proves to be a beneficial time to do so. This ties in with the Mars phase that also ended earlier this month. You have been feeling blocked or restricted by the universe in making changes within your romantic life; however, as January progresses and Uranus finally turns direct, it means that with all planets direct, there is no longer anything holding you back.

Thursday, January 26th

Venus, the planet of love, moves into Pisces today, reminding you of what love is truly meant to be.

During this time, love becomes unconditional.
