Reading time: just 2 minutes to win the month (but stay as long as you like!)

January 2021 Libra Love Horoscope

January is a hugely significant month because Mars leaves Aries and your relationship realm after an unusually long half-year transit. Since last June 27, there’s likely been an intense focus on your partnerships—sometimes stressful and conflict-filled while other times passionate and mind-blowingly hot!

Mars will move on from Aries on January 6, plunging into even deeper waters as it visits Taurus and your intimate, erotic eighth house until March 3. You might feel a sense of urgency around permanent plans, like moving in together or making a joint investment, neither of which is lessened by the pandemic surge. This cycle can bring even more sensuality and intrigue—but it also drives up trust issues, jealousy and possessiveness. For single Libras, this could be an internally focused time of doing some healing around trust and deeper feelings—or to find someone you connect with on the levels of mind, body AND soul.

You’ll still be in the mood for flirting and lighter chitchat until about January 8, when Venus exits Sagittarius and your breezy third house and moves into Capricorn and your emotional fourth. Paired with Mars in Taurus, this could make you feel sensitive and vulnerable. While you’ll enjoy the nostalgia, you may also be mercurial, thin-skinned and quick to react. 

Make sure you have adequate support and self-care to see you through. Talk about your feelings instead of holding them inside, even if you first process them with a caring confidante instead of your love interest.

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.
