February 14 is a long time to wait for Cupid’s arrival—and lucky for you, Aquarius, he’s winging in on an early flight. This Monday, January 2, love planet Venus sashays into your sign, blessing you with a galactic glow-up until January 26. If you’re single, you’ll have an almost unfair advantage over the other signs during this three-week glamour spike. Pull out the stops and flirt, swipe, date (and whatever) with abandon. Venus only visits your sign once a year, and you want to make the most of this juicy transit. But no need to rush into anything that smacks of commitment. This is a time to dabble and consider your options. Besides, taking it slow and not showing all your cards will make you more enticing—AND can reveal things about the other person that takes time to come out.
Couples can look forward to a romantic revival, especially if the once-fiery flames have been fading to embers. Venus can help you talk through your differences or gripes with compassion, which is a good first step. Of course, you don’t want to kill the sizzle with TOO much analyzing. Head OUT of the house often, treating each other like you’re back in your honeymoon phase.
Visits from fashionista Venus can inspire a seismic style change, but easy does it, Water Bearer. Nothing wrong with bookmarking hair and tattoo artists on Insta, but wait until Mercury turns direct on January 18 before making any extreme changes. If nothing else, take a trip to your storage unit and go on a dig for any Y2K or retro pieces that are ready for a 2023 refresh!

Friday brings the first full moon of 2023—in nurturing Cancer and your salubrious sixth house. This timely lunar lift will launch your wellness goals into high gear. Over these next two weeks—the full moon’s “harvest time”—say yes to sweaty workouts and a nutrient-dense meal plan. You don’t have to go to extremes to see big results. But if you do decide to try a short-but-intense cleanse, first talk to a health practitioner who knows you and your body. It might be better to slowly add more fresh organic produce and healthy oils into your diet. While you’re sprouting new leaves, choose foods and exercise you love enough to incorporate into your life. Build in realistic but challenging goals to keep you pumped. COULD you finally be ready to run a half marathon or take a 30-day “boot camp” challenge? Buddy up with a motivated friend who can hold you accountable. Acknowledge the small milestones along the way, whether that’s rebooting your gut health or being able to lift more weight than you ever have before.
