Power plays could bring passion (but also stress) to your love life when this week begins. On December 28, the moon in your sensual second house opposes affectionate Venus in your possessive eighth house, which could lead to you play emotional games with your partner. While these games can certainly spice up your sex life and turn each other on, make sure you keep it all as lighthearted as you can before it becomes too much.
In fact, these power plays could follow you to the thirtieth if you’re not careful. Venus squares sensitive Neptune in your eleventh house of community, and if your lover is introducing you to their group of friends for the first time, you might feel like you’re getting lost in the mix. If you don’t feel like you’re fitting in or your partner isn’t facilitating a warm welcome, be fair and direct about it instead of passive-aggressive.
However, you might have a beautiful change of heart by January 3. The moon in your expressive fifth house forms a trine with innovative Uranus in Taurus, coaxing you out of your shell and helping you dazzle the room (and your lover, too).
