The week begins on an intimate note. On February 1, the moon in your nurturing fourth house will form a trine with the sun in your eighth house of merged energies, encouraging emotionally-driven connections with a lover. However, as the sun squares off with Mars in your eleventh house of friends, you may feel confused about whether this intimacy means you’re headed for a serious relationship or that you’re nothing more than friends, which may cause you to pull back.
On February 3, falling in love may leave you feeling vulnerable. The moon in your fifth house will square off Venus in your intimate eighth house, stirring the juxtaposition between wanting to be loved and feeling afraid of being hurt. Luckily, by the fourth, the moon will form a trine with Neptune in your ninth house of faith, reminding you that love is worth the risk. If you jump, the universe will find a way to catch you.
However, by February 6, your defense mechanisms may flare up as the Venus-Saturn conjunction inhibits your emotional eighth house. This will encourage you to learn how to swim in the sea of love without sinking. As Venus square Uranus, you may strike deep connections with surprising people.
