January 2021 Gemini Love Horoscope

The first week of 2021 finds you in the tailwind of the holiday season, and even all the #canceled celebrations won’t bring you down. With romantic Venus in Sagittarius and your partnership house until January 8 (where she’s been since December 15), the season may have come with a deepened commitment or even a proposal. For single Gems, a spark could carry long-term potential. 

And with lusty Mars completing an extended six-month lap through Aries and your friend zone, this new love connection may have started out as a casual fling or with a platonic pal who suddenly became “something more.” 

It’s equally possible that you just haven’t felt in the mood for anything too serious ever since Mars first entered Aries in late June 2020. This passion plateau could have started as far back as mid-May, with Venus retrograde in your sign for six weeks, a challenging time for Geminis and love. Let’s face it: 2020 was quite an obstacle course when it came to creating and maintaining relationships. 

On January 8, Venus will swing into Capricorn and your sensual, sultry eighth house for the rest of the month. And on January 6, Mars will finally exit Aries and slip into Taurus until March 3, activating your twelfth house of fantasy, healing and closure. This could draw in a person who’s intoxicatingly attractive, even addictive, but you may not be sure of their trustworthiness. A clandestine affair could spark up with ardent Mars in this secretive sector. 

If you’re dealing with a loss or ending, use this time to heal and feel all your emotions, from anger to grief. The silver lining? Mars will head into Gemini on March 3, and you’ll have a clean slate to start on.

Key Dates:

January 9: Venus-Mars trine
Bring on the lasting love! As affectionate Venus and passionate Mars harmonize in stable earth signs, you could have true romance with all the trimmings—sensuality and stability. Skip the “come here now go away” players and their mixed messages. A partner who makes you feel secure is suddenly the most attractive catch in town. Coupled? Mark a long-term relationship with a thoughtful gift to let your mate know how much you cherish them. 

All your biggest love days, revealed.
