Romance is inspiring you as the week begins. January 11 is when Mercury and Jupiter create a love potion in your fifth house of fun and pleasure, encouraging creative and poetic thinking. Now is a beautiful time to pull out all the stops on a sweet date or let the dirty talk lead you right to the bedroom if you’re feeling kinky. However, you might not be sure whether this intimacy is based on true emotion or mere lust as Mercury squares Uranus in your passionate eighth house the next day.
If your heart is in the right place and you’re feeling where this is going, it might be time to introduce them to the parents at the new moon in Capricorn on the thirteenth. Sending love to your fourth house of home and family, this new moon can allow you to build something with a lover that lasts. It may not be a match made in heaven immediately, as Mars in your eighth house of merged energies collides with Saturn in your effervescent fifth house, but stick with it.
By January 14, the sun-Pluto conjunction in your warm fourth house proves that if you don’t give up on love, you’ll eventually grow a love that endures.
