Love Horoscope for the Week of January 11

Listen to this article

What an interesting, complicated, and strange week in the zodiac for love and romance! In a way, it’s like being invited to the best, tastiest buffet in town, but your jaws are closed. Or maybe it’s like walking up to the buffet and finding it closed. Or maybe…

(Can we have a minute’s silence for the buffet? We lost a lot in 2020 and I will definitely miss buffets for a long time.)

So instead of trying to understand all of this in terms of a standard linear narrative, let me just give you all the evidence. Then you can decide what to do with it.


Venus trine Uranus is exactly on Wednesday. This aspect can add extra shine and shine to an existing relationship, or possibly bring in something new, exciting and different. Stay open to unusual possibilities from unexpected places and you may discover a treasure trove of potential romance and affection. And since Uranus ends its retrograde evolution and goes straight the next day things can be particularly unusual or unexpected. And that doesn’t have to be bad either.


Mars square Saturn is also exactly on Wednesday. Mars rules aggression and sex drive. This aspect has been in effect for about a week. Have you noticed any signs of frustrated, confused, or misdirected anger lately? If not, congratulations on avoiding American politics entirely. Although this energy can (theoretically) be put into a nice, boisterous sex round or two, in practice it is a very difficult aspect to manage. Whether it’s relationships or not, please try to calm down and take a chill pill. This is not the week to suddenly enter or leave a personal situation. Or public buildings armed with a brick.


As if it wasn’t bad enough on Sunday Jupiter square Uranus is accurate. On the one hand, this could give you the momentum to free yourself from a challenging situation. On the other hand … well, we’ve all seen recently how “getting out of a challenging situation” can get really ugly very quickly. What makes this transit particularly difficult given the Mars and Venus situation is that you are likely looking for some sort of higher order or stability. And guess what? We’re fresh out this week!

Whatever you do with your personal life this week, think about it and be careful. In addition, the week starts with Mercury conjunct Jupiter, then Mercury square Uranus: If you are making the wrong decisions in your life, don’t expect to be able to easily or eloquently talk your way out of them.
