If you’ve been dealing with codependent relationship patterns, this week will call attention to that. On January 27, the moon transits your obsessive eighth house as it opposes the Venus-Pluto conjunction in your possessive second house. If you or your partner is tempted to exert control over the other, it might be time to establish boundaries and discuss how to better respect each other’s space and freedom.
On the twenty-eighth, a full moon pulses through your adventurous ninth house, inspiring you to experiment with fresh attitudes toward love and try new things that reinvigorate your partnership. However, communication issues might reveal that your perspectives differ, encouraging you to try to overcome blockages so that you can finally see eye to eye.
Mercury retrograde commences on January 30, and you may experience an uptick in awkward conversations, so be mindful of how you communicate your thoughts and feelings. People (and lovers) from your past might decide to reach out to you and ask for a sense of “closure,” but remember that closure comes from within. Often, these requests for closure are just an opportunity to leave you feeling even more confused about why this relationship ended. Sometimes no response is the right response.
