Don’t be surprised if you’re positively brimming with desire as the week begins. On January 4, the moon in Virgo forms a trine with brainy Mercury and dramatic Pluto in your romantic fifth house, encouraging you to express your idea of romance. Whether this means planning a sexy date with a lover or simply lighting incense and writing love poems, go for it.
However, by the seventh, you may be making promises that you’ll have trouble keeping. The moon moves through your clever third house as it squares off with Saturn and Jupiter in your sixth house of action. You could say one thing and do another, leaving your lover feeling confused about your intentions. The next day, the truth might get lost in translation as Mercury squares intense Mars in your expansive ninth house, so be patient. You may not have all the answers right now.
Luckily, loving Venus in your passionate fifth house forms a trine with Mars on January 9, keeping the flame alive. By the time Mercury and Saturn join forces in your partnership sector later that day, it could be time to decide how serious this relationship is and whether you’re ready to take it to the next level.
