For you, the year may seem like it gets off to a clumsy start when it comes to romance. For instance, Venus in Capricorn squares Mars in Libra on January 16, causing even the most promising pairing to stall. But this isn't even close to permanent.
Venus enters Aquarius on March 5, just before Jupiter turns direct, portending a forward direction to your romantic life that may bowl you over. New friends with unique interests are suddenly in your thoughts all the time. Your way with language helps to keep the evenings long and rewarding!
Increased Fire Sign activity later in the summer, particularly in August and September, can only help new relationships along. However, be mindful of expecting too much too soon. Flames can't burn steadily all the time, and if you try to fan them too hard, you could get hurt. You might have to settle for short periods of relative inactivity. But that's all right, as the valleys of life help make the mountain peaks feel even higher than they already are!
