Welcome to the first month of 2019, Taurus. With Venus, the Planet of Love, in your partnership sector as the month begins, you will be in your feelings in regard to recent sexual or romantic connections that have been on your mind. Venus in Scorpio energy is very passionate, obsessive, controlling, and sensual. You’ll start off the month thinking about the person that you most want to have sex with, and it’s important for you to not allow this to simply be a fantasy. If you can visualize it in your mind’s eye, you can bring your vision to life. Your sex drive will be higher than usual so it’s best to have an outlet that’s fulfilling and satisfying. That can mean engaging in your own self-love through masturbation and/or it can mean out to the person you been dreaming of, and being bolder and more direct in your sexual pursuits.
The Solar Eclipse New Moon in Capricorn on January 5 activates your expansion sector, and all of a sudden you may find yourself seeking more freedom in your sex life. If you felt like you could’ve explored more sexually in 2018, this is your year to break free of her comfort zone, and fully indulge in your naughtiest and freakiest thoughts. This eclipse can lead to you getting an unexpected text message from someone that you would love to be with. If you’re already in a relationship, this has the power to be fresh start for you both, and activate more sexual satisfaction for all parties involved. Prepare to have soul-stirring conversations about sex and intimacy around this time. It could start off with you or your partner(s) stating some fact about yourselves such as not being a big fan of cuddling or of a certain sexual position, and then next thing you know you’ll start unpacking what the root of that feeling is, and the effect it has on your sexual relationships. Major change takes place between January 5th and 15th, so address any insecurities, resentments, frustrations or desires that you have during this eclipse in a fellow Earth sign. The more you speak your truth, the more likely the Universe is to supply a sexual situation that suits your deepest needs.
By the time Venus enters Sagittarius on the 7th, your sector of depth, intimacy and merging is highlighted and allows you to have greater ease when expressing your deepest sexual fantasies. If you’re already in a relationship, you may seek to better understand your partner psychologically in order to feel most attracted to them in the long-term. If you’ve been holding a grudge because of something your partner did — and therefore withholding sex or intimacy to prove a point — Venus in Sagittarius will help you forgive and move on. You’ll realize that no one’s perfect, and that you may have been a bit too extreme during Venus in Scorpio, By making the conscious decision to relax anger, the makeup sex will be phenomenal and deeply fulfilling.
Whether single, dating, or in a relationship, Venus in Sag will make you aware of times when you pushed away love, sex, or even casual flirting just because you have a specific idea or expectation about what it should be like. Use the more adaptable energy of Venus in Sag to be less rigid when it comes to your sexual experiences. Once Aquarius Season begins on the 20th, your romantic and sexual satisfaction will be more directly connected to your success and joy at work, because your partnership sector is activated. It’s therefore important to focus on balance this month. Don’t get so absorbed in sexual fantasies that you neglect your responsibilities, but also don’t neglect your sex life because you want to focus on work. Realize that living out your passions in the day to day will naturally lead to you feeling more confident and therefore being more attractive to others. Also watch out for sexual connections that may take place at work, especially around the Leo Eclipse that takes place on January 21. Either someone will come on to you out of the blue, or someone that you’ve been eyeing and crushing on for a while will try to get with you. Think back to what your sex life was like in August 2018 — the date of the Leo Eclipse New Moon. Chances are, whatever intentions you set around love and sex will most likely manifest by month’s end. Emotions will be running high, and your sex drive will be too, so use the Saturn-Neptune alignment to end the year sexually liberated.
