Welcome to January and a whole new year, Libra. At the end of 2020, you started to do the hard work on healing some of your unresolved trauma to become the best version of yourself. Now that you have a better sense of what you need when it comes to all types of relationships, it’s time to vocalize those needs. On Wednesday, January 6, warrior planet Mars enters loyal Taurus and your 8th House of Sex, Death, and Transformation, which asks you to shed your old skin like a snake. Any sub-par romantic interests must go to make room for those that are new and exciting.
Shortly after, on Friday, January 8, your ruling planet, Venus (the goddess of love), enters hardworking Capricorn and your 4th House of Home. You’re an infamous flirt, Libra, and often have a few crushes or a secret sexting buddy. However, this transit, and perhaps the political stress of 2020, has you wanting someone you can settle down with. If you’re already partnered, you may be ready to level up the relationship.
On this same date, Friday, January 8, communication planet Mercury enters logical Aquarius in your 5th House of Pleasure. The rational air sign energy encourages you to speak up about your needs, so go ahead and tell your crush or partner what you want from them. The stars bode well for a response in your favor.
If you are ready to ask someone to move in together or even just out on a Zoom date, the dark new moon in responsible Capricorn on Wednesday, January 13. This lunation is the ideal time for fresh starts and new beginnings. Then, Aquarius season begins on Tuesday, January 19. This energy is detached yet logical, which helps make the first Mercury retrograde of the year go a bit more smoothly when it starts on Saturday, January 30 in Aquarius.
While this sign’s intellectual energy will make it easier to handle typos and technological mishaps, beware of acting overly aloof, especially toward the people you love. Don’t undo any of the work you did earlier this month when it comes to your most important relationships. That means no getting involved with exes! Be smart, Libra, and see you next month.

We know many of you may be feeling worried, frightened, or isolated right now.

We urge you to donate to one or all of these organizations if you’re able to. If you can’t, we created a guide to ways you can support the BLM movement other than financially.
