Jan. 20-Feb. 18
It's time to be more open to embracing outside ideas. Your therapist might want you to break up with your partner because of some abusive undercurrents, or your parents could be worried about your current boyfriend.
Feb. 19-March 20
Mercury is creating some emotional angst. You'll confess that you're dying to get married, even if you just met that cute guy three weeks ago. Or you'll tell your girlfriend all about your last disastrous relationship.
March 21-April 19
You're probably getting tired of butting your head into a brick wall. Venus is making it harder than ever for you to find peace in your relationship.
April 20-May 20
Your honey wants something from you, and you're not sure if you can deliver it. Your wife wants a kid, and you're still partying with the boys every night. Your guy wants you to move in, but you hate his apartment.
May 21-June 21
As Mercury, your planetary ruler, goes retrograde, you could become obsessed with the one who got away. Even if the guy you left was a loser, you're wondering "What if?" Stop being so clueless.
June 22-July 22
Intense Saturn is urging you to express your passion. If you're hung up on somebody, make sure that the object of your affection understands your feelings. Boldness will pay off.
July 23-Aug. 22
A sun opposition has you questioning your sexual style. If you're in the habit of pouncing on the first date, maybe you should take your time getting to know that potential sweetheart.
Aug. 23-Sept. 22
Be patient over the next few weeks. Mercury will be in retrograde, making it harder for you to judge where you stand with that certain somebody. If you're in love, don't get engaged. If you just met somebody, keep your options open.
Sept. 23-Oct. 23
You like to stay friends with everybody you've ever dated, and sometimes, this works against you. The moon is reminding you that it's normal to feel possessive of your honey.
Oct. 24-Nov. 21
Your partner could surprise you. Maybe that guy you're dating wants to move in. Perhaps that sexy lady is interested in taking things to the next level. A moon opposition could increase your tension and doubt.
Nov. 22-Dec. 21
A bouncy moon is making it hard for you stay focused. You'll want to date 10 people at once or travel to several exotic locations in one weekend.
Dec. 22-Jan. 19
Moody Mercury is making it harder for you to believe in true love. Suddenly, you can't stand the way your husband chews, or you detest the way your girlfriend squints when she's concentrating. Don't freak out over the small stuff.
