Weekly Love Horoscopes For January 2 - 8, 2023

In the first full week of the new year, you are being encouraged to move past any obligations or restrictions and truly create the love and relationship that fits your own needs.

Venus, the planet of love, changes signs early in the week giving the first month of the new year one that will inspire you to break free from the rules of love that have held you back.

Venus in Aquarius is committed and emotional, however, it also does not care if it ruffles a few feathers by following its own heart.

During this time, you will break away from anything that has felt restrictive and instead is in the place to create whatever kind of relationship truly feels fulfilling for you.

While last week we held themes of healing, this week is all about freedom.

The Cancer Full Moon occurs this week as well, and though Cancer is the sign of home and family, it is also about making sure that where you are is truly a place that nurtures your own soul.

Cancer must learn to care for itself as much as it does for others, and this week is your chance to see how much you have grown in this area.

By caring for your needs first, you also give yourself permission to do what is in your best interest, even if others may not approve or even understand.

Most romantic days this week:

Monday, January 2nd

Venus, the planet of love, shifts into free-spirited Aquarius today, shifting the way you look at relationships. While Aquarius is most known as an air sign that prefers to rebel against norms and find its own way of doing things, this sign is still very committed and loving, just in a unique way.

When Venus is in Aquarius, you are more likely to make up your own version of a relationship container that suits you best rather than thinking it must look a particular way. During this time you can practice greater independence both with your partner and with each of you separately as well. It is time to discover what nonattachment means in love and how it can lead to an amazing relationship.

Friday, January 6th

The Full Moon in Cancer occurs today bringing romantic themes surrounding self-love and home to fruition. Whatever has been happening for you in these areas since the New Moon in Cancer on June 28th, 2022, will now reach a point where you can see what has come full circle, what has grown, and even what has not improved.

It is an opportunity to see if you have tended to your own needs primarily and if the energy you have been receiving from your relationship has been reciprocal or not. During this lunation, emotions will be high because of the influence of sensitive Cancer so it is important to give yourself and others space to feel what may arise.

With Uranus and the North Node, both in Taurus, influencing this Full Moon, there may be some surprise awareness popping up about how to bring in greater balance to your home and relationship.
