January 2021 Virgo Love Horoscope

Ready for a break from the intensity, Virgo? On January 6, a transformational six-month cycle comes to an end. Lusty Mars has been in Aries and your intimate eighth house since June 27, 2020, staying four times longer than usual. You’ve had a front-row seat to your rawest emotions, and at times, there was no avoiding those vulnerable feelings. 

On the upside, the eighth house rules sex and sensuality, and with intensifier Mars here, some Virgos made the most of this cycle behind closed doors. But with the pandemic thwarting your mojo and meet-cute opportunities, you may also have experienced some of the red planet’s frustrating tendencies, especially while Mars was retrograde from September 9 to November 13, 2020.

On January 6, Mars finally moves on to a new sign and won’t return to this part of your chart for a couple years. Until March 3, Mars will blaze through fellow earth sign Taurus and your expansive ninth house. While Taurus moves at a more cautious pace than Aries, this is still a time for growth and movement. New opportunities could come out of left field, and for some Virgos, a long-distance attraction could heat up. 

The other love planet, Venus, has been a bit moody too—at least since December 15, when she started a visit to Sagittarius and your emo fourth house. But by January 8, that will become a dim memory as Venus sashays into Capricorn and your passionate, playful fifth house until February 1. The rest of the month will turn up the heat, and while we know pandemic precautions are a must, you can certainly flirt like a champion, even if it’s from afar. Get the Valentine’s Day celebrations started a month early.

A red-hot day arrives on January 9, when Venus and Mars form their annual harmonious trine (120-degree angle) in these expansive and open-hearted zones. You can finally feel adventurous and playful enough to express your desires without being attached to any outcomes. In other words, flirt for flirting’s sake...and let Cupid’s chips fall where they may.

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.
