Love has improved over last month. Your love planet Mercury was retrograde last month (until January 8) and now he is moving forward – and very quickly. Perhaps the problem now is your changeability (fickleness?) in your love needs. On the other hand, love opportunities happen in different places and different ways this month. Until the 7th love opportunities happen as you handle your financial goals – and perhaps with people involved in your finances. Material wealth is the romantic turn-on. (This was the case all last month too.) From the 7th to the 25th you gravitate to those who have the gift of the gab. Good communication is a romantic turn-on. Intellectual intimacy is as important as the physical side. Your love planet in Aquarius shows that you gravitate to very brilliant kinds of people – scientists, astronomers, astrologers, inventors and innovators. Romantic meetings can happen online. After the 25th you crave emotional intimacy (though you still like the intellectual side). You also gravitate to spiritual kinds of people.

Mercury’s fast motion shows good social confidence. Probably you’re dating more. You seem to cover a lot of territory.

We have two eclipses this period. This is guaranteed to shake things up. The Lunar Eclipse of the 11th (in the Americas it’s on the 10th) occurs in your 9th house and impacts mostly on students at college level. There are dramatic changes to their educational plans. It is not advisable to be on the road or in the air over that period. It will bring shakeups in your place of worship and a testing of your religious and philosophical beliefs. They get ‘reality therapy’. Some will have to be revised, some discarded altogether. The eclipsed planet, the Moon, is the ruler of your 8th house and this gives many messages. The spouse, partner or current love is forced to make important course corrections in their financial life. Most likely the thinking and strategy is unrealistic. The eclipse can bring encounters with death – close calls, near-death kinds of experiences, dreams of death, etc. The cosmos sends a gentle reminder to get more serious about life – it can end at any time. Avoid dangerous kinds of activities this period.

The Solar Eclipse of the 26th affects you more strongly. Reduce your schedule. (You should reduce your schedule from the 18th onwards anyway, but especially during this eclipse period.) This eclipse also impacts on college students, on your place of worship and on your religious and philosophical beliefs. The Sun is the ruler of your 9th house and these areas of life are getting shaken up by the two eclipses. But this one also impacts on the home and family, and especially one of the parents or parent figures in your life.
