Your lovely leader Venus is retrograde in stern Capricorn as the new month and year begin, giving you some pretty concrete and unrelenting ideas about someone you dated or were married to in your past. Are you being too hard on them? It might be time to let them tell you their side of the story or at least officially apologize.
A new moon arrives, also in single-minded Capricorn, on January 2, but you can use this focused energy to really zero in on some of the goals you set last year but weren’t able to reach. Don’t overthink your failures, Libra, look at them as learning experiences.
Technology-driven Mercury enters its first dreaded retrograde cycle on the fourteenth, but it might not be as bad as you think. Mercury is in innovative, future-minded Aquarius now, which gives you a lot of really interesting ideas about how to get yourself out of whatever jams the retrograde leads you into. Use technology to your fullest advantage.
Lovely Venus goes direct while still in reserved Capricorn on January 29, so while issues related to love and money get better, you’re not totally out of the woods just yet. Don’t treat a personal relationship like a business one. If love is involved, don’t be afraid to show your emotions.
