The week begins with flirtatious vibes in the air. On January 4, the moon moves through your clever third house as it forms a trine with the smoldering Mercury-Pluto conjunction in your seventh house of partnerships. This encourages long, enticing conversations in which you get to know one another and ask each other pressing questions. By the fifth, the moon is in your warm and compassionate fourth house as it forms a trine with Saturn and Jupiter in your intimate eighth house, which will deepen your bond if you’re willing to be vulnerable.
However, by January 7, you may feel unsure of whether you’re just friends or something more. The moon in your romantic fifth house opposes Mars in your platonic eleventh house, stirring your instinct to keep a lover at arm’s length. The next day, messenger Mercury in your fearful eighth house squares off with Mars, encouraging intimacy issues to consume you.
January 9, however, is when loving Venus in your relationship sector forms a trine with Mars. If the passion is there, you can’t let your fears get in the way of something that could potentially be amazing. Just make sure to take it slowly.
