You might have your eye on someone, someone you might love to be in a relationship with or someone you only want to deepen your relationship with. However, you could find yourself enjoying your independence so much early this week that it leaves you feeling confused. On December 28, the moon in your first house of the self opposes affectionate Venus in your partnership sector, creating an imbalance in your love life. Remember that a relationship does come with sacrifices, but they’re sacrifices you should be happy to make.
By the thirtieth, try your best to focus on what you know about your relationship, not what other people are trying to tell you about it. Venus squares disorienting Neptune in your tenth house of reputation and hearsay, and it could leave you with a sour taste in your mouth about your lover. The world doesn’t know them like you do, so trust in your own knowledge.
If you need to clear the air with your partner, January 2 is a beautiful day to do it. The moon in your communication sector forms a trine with Venus in your relationship sector, making you both especially receptive to hearing about your feelings. Focus on what you each have to say.
