If you’ve been hustling through the holidays or dealing with heavy feelings, here’s some news you’ll love: On Monday social butterfly Venus traipses into Aquarius and your flirtatious, fun-loving third house until January 26. Any self-imposed hibernation urges will be out the window quicker than you say, “Meet me at the karaoke bar at 9!” And before you get a chance to extend the invite, your phone could be blowing up with requests for a piece of your Sagittarius-off-duty time. Since this realm also rules neighborhood happenings, check the calendars at nearby venues. Maybe it’s time to become a regular on the trivia night scene or to start expanding your musical repertoire by checking out local artists.
Romantically, this Venus phase could signal some out-of-the-blue attractions and no-strings flings—quite possibly with someone you friend-zoned prematurely. Single? Fire up the dating apps. You’ll be the high priestess of Hinge between now and January 26. Attached Archers should focus more on having fun and being each other’s BFFs. The couple that plays together slays together, so scroll through the cultural listings ASAP and reserve your first pair of tickets, hopefully of many this month!
Your powers of seduction could hit their first high note of 2023 this Friday, January 6, thanks to a potent full moon in Cancer and your erotic eighth house. A brewing attraction that’s been gaining intensity could culminate in a passionate hookup. One catch: You may be up for a no-strings fling, but the emo sign of Cancer generally plays for keeps. As long as you’re honest about your intentions, it’s fine—but make sure you’re not kidding yourself about what you want out of this, for BOTH your sakes (and your karma). And if you’re the one who wants “more,” don’t play it off under the guise of being casual. That’s a recipe for hurt.
If no one’s on your sensual radar screen, take strides to remedy that situation in the two weeks that follow the full moon. Add some well-lit new photos to your dating profiles and get out of the house to socialize more often. Already attached? Up the erotic quotient by mixing some fresh moves into your repertoire. Even when you’re home just the two of you, dress up a little and make flirting a priority. They say familiarity breeds contempt, so use the element of surprise to catch bae pleasantly off guard. If resentment’s been bubbling, you may need to clear the air in order to reboot the attraction. Never underestimate the power of a nakedly honest conversation—or the ensuing makeup sex!
