Take advantage of the boost in social energy early in the week. Leading up until Friday, it’s possible you and your partner will enjoy a party or other event with mutual friends. There’s a good chance you’ll meet up with pals who share a similar interest that is somehow “out of the box.” Your mind will enjoy a boost of stimulation, which will help you keep things interesting in all aspects of your life — especially romance!
You may not feel as if your mate is fully supporting you with a career decision that looms ahead. He or she might have the perspective that you’re pushing your luck and threatening your security by making the next move you plan to make. While this might be a valid point, don’t allow pessimism to deter you. Realize it’s also possible that your sweetheart is projecting his or her own fears onto you. Pursue what you know is right for you.
Set your sights on an adventure with your lover this week — or at least plan to talk about one. A brilliant opportunity to expand your horizons is possible, and of course you’ll want to include your sweetheart. You might decide to take a class together that allows you to explore an offbeat topic that interests you both. You may also talk about planning that exotic vacation. Keep talking, but don’t commit just yet — wait until after Venus turns direct on January 31 for any big ticket purchases.
If you feel tightness in the romance department this week it’s not your imagination. As a matter of fact, you and your sweetie might endure a stressful conversation — especially near Saturday. This will likely have to do with shared resources, such as your partner’s income, insurance benefits or even shared debt. You might realize that taking a vacation together or spending extra cash isn’t a smart idea right now. Taking a mature and responsible approach in handling your joint finances won’t feel fun. But it is necessary.
Domestic responsibility might squeeze the romance out of your life this week. You might need to take care of an elderly relative or attend to another family obligation, and if so it’s likely to take your attention away from your mate. What might make this more unsettling is that your partner isn’t likely to support you while you carry this extra family weight. In fact, he or she may resent the fact that you’re focused so much on your clan. A happy medium may not be possible … push through.
A serious conversation about who’s pulling more weight in your relationship may be called for. If you’re still feeling resentment about doing more of the everyday work to keep the nuts and bolts intact around your love nest, you may finally voice your frustration. Try your best to approach your mate in a way that won’t put him or her on the defensive. If you express how you feel honestly, and without reproach, a resolution is possible. In the end, however, it’s you who might need to draw boundaries. Did your lover really insist that you clean every nook and cranny of space you share? Probably not … that’s a “you” thing. Own it.
Your love life will be on fire this week — at least in your mind. The good news is that your ability to talk to someone special will be incredible — especially if you act by Friday. Go ahead and ask out someone who isn’t usually “your type.” You may be pleasantly surprised to learn the two of you have so much in common and plenty to talk about. Just remember that your ruler, Venus, is still in retrograde motion. Starting a new relationship isn’t ideal under this condition. Even so, there’s nothing wrong with talking and getting to know someone. Just take it slow.
Talking to a relative about your love life might not always appeal to you, you might make an exception this week. There’s a strong possibility that someone in your clan understands more about what you’re going through romantically these days than you might ever have guessed. In fact, you’ll only know just how startling the parallels in your love life are if you have the courage to talk about your own first. It’s OK — go there. You won’t regret it.
Time with friends might prove beneficial for you in more ways than one this week. If you and your partner attend an event with a group of pals, you’re likely to find it renews sparks between you. Stimulating conversation in a group setting will likely lead to extra-curricular romance behind closed doors later on, when it’s just the two of you. Unfortunately, your ideal social time this week will be before Friday. The weekend will be a dud, so plan accordingly.
Your love life might remain in a fragile state for just a little bit longer. Venus is still traveling retrograde in your sign — a phenomenon that will continue to test relationship and your lovability factor until January 31. This week, you might feel as if you’re making progress when it comes to courageously talking about what you know you’re worth. Remember, you’re a rare and beautiful find and anyone who loves you should treasure that fact. Don’t sell yourself short!
A heated debate between you and your sweetheart might send sparks flying all over the place this week — especially between the sheets! Don’t be worried about adamantly defending your stance on a particular subject, even if your mate doesn’t agree with your perspective. For most of this week you’ll have a remarkable ability to sound sexy and informed all at once. Use it to your advantage. Go after your lover by seducing his or her brain first!
A deep and meaningful conversation with your partner this week might help you forge a greater bond, physically and spiritually. Don’t worry about freaking out your mate with wild or eccentric thoughts now. Sharing what’s really on your mind is what your lover craves from you and what he or she will respond to most. Even if it’s a silly fantasy or an irrational fear, talking about it will help you feel more connected to your mate. Open your mind and your heart.
