The year gets off to a good start for friendship and relationship building, both collectively and individually. Venus, the planet of love will spend the first two weeks of January in your friendship sector and at a friendly aspect to Juno in your relationship sector. It is that friendly aspect the will ensure the year gets off to a good start when it comes to friendship and relationship building. Yet individually this is also a good start to the year on both fronts. It is on the relationship front that you begin the year with a secret weapon with Juno, queen of commitment and especially commitment to your relationships in your relationship sector until September.
After months of planetary activity on the relationship front in the second half of last year, this has left you with a good sense of what you want from your relationships and what they need from you, leaving you with something to commit to. At the same time, while Venus will be supporting Juno and your relationships, for her your friendship sector is also a social and serendipitous part of your chart. With the laws of attraction and synchronicity in effect during the first two weeks of the year, Venus will be doing her best to create serendipitous moments and/or encounters. While this is a legacy that will continue even after Venus has left, from 14th January the planet of love will be taking things in a very different direction.
It is then that Venus will return to a nostalgic and reflective part of your chart, beginning a nostalgic trip down love's memory lane that will end with her return to Aries next month. This is much earlier than you would normally expect but creates a month of two halves. In the meantime, the Moon's first visits to your communication, romantic and relationship sectors for the year will also be a valuable chance to check in. This will all happen in the first three weeks of the month.
