Your love life might be extra confusing this month. Mercury will turn retrograde on January 5 in your sign and this may lead you to mess up your words more than usual. What you intend to say and how you end up saying it are likely to be two very different things so be aware of how this potential may impact relationships.
Even after Mercury slides back into Capricorn for the rest of his retrograde (January 8 through January 25), you still won't be out of the woods. That's because Mercury is the ruler of your true love sector. As a result, his retrograde phases always seem to bring up issues around the past for you to resolve in matters of the heart. This cycle won't be any different. A Full Moon in your relationship sector on January 23, will heighten emotions between you and your partner, for better or worse.
