On Friday, social butterfly Venus also lands in Sagittarius, its home until January 10. While some people might hate the holiday crowds, you’ll revel in the crush of friendly faces, seeing the possibility in each person. As a matter of fact, Aquarius, you might just be awarded Life of the Party status from Friday onward, a title you’ll wear with pride. A chance to collaborate with an exciting group of people could be a gift of this new moon too, so open yourself up to the idea of a joint venture. You’ll be the great harmonizer on any team you’re participating in, capable of uniting disparate factions and figuring out how to make a motley crew of people work together like a well-oiled machine.
Venus affects love, and while it’s in Sagittarius, you’ll be more of a romantic idealist than ever. Rules were meant to be broken, as your sign well knows. Choking down the “2.5 kids, house and a car” model of love is not your thing right now. How can you author your own love story, Aquarius, so that you actually want to play a starring role in it? Some heady talks lie ahead for coupled Water Bearers…let no subject be off-limits. Focus too on the friendship aspect of love. Have you forgotten to actually LIKE your sweetie, grown a little too accustomed to auto-piloting through your habitual ways of interacting with one another? Get out of the “lather, rinse, repeat” mode and treat your honey with the same courtesy you’re extending to all of your new friends. In other words, actively listen and drop the assumptions. Believe it or not, there’s always more to discover about another, even if you’ve been together for years. Taking a class or workshop together can stimulate new growth in a relationship that’s been in sleep mode. Bonus points if traveling is involved with this quest! Get sporty together, too. That weekend ski trip might be the fresh powder your relationship needs to regain momentum.
On Wednesday, your planetary ruler Uranus wakes up from a five-month retrograde and powers forward once again. Your ability to communicate clearly and effectively will be restored…but watch out for the choppy transition. This could be an “open mouth, insert Manolo” kind of week if you aren’t careful. Uranus rules electricity, and your words will have an extra charge. Slap on the proverbial circuit breaker so you don’t short out a promising connection with your high-voltage intensity. An unconventional partnership (likely a platonic one) could be struck this week, and it has “dynamic duo” written all over it. Look for ways to “pair and share,” stretching resources in clever ways and teaming up with another person to expand your reach.
