Amorous Venus begins its journey in communicative Gemini today. This is a great time to make the acquaintance of a romantic interest. A stimulating talk could pave the way for a fun date. Established relationships can also benefit from stimulating conversations. Gemini, Libra and Aquarius may be particularly good at making romantic inroads. Right now, the fastest way to the heart is through the brain. In addition, Venus will oppose combative Mars. Getting into an argument about religion, politics or culture could pave the way for a passionate romance. Opposites attract under this influence. Don't be afraid to challenge assertions and contradict opinions. Looking ahead, driven Mars will enter passionate Scorpio. This could be a good time to settle a score or resolve an outstanding grievance. A show of aggression may be necessary to meet an objective. If you're celebrating your birthday today, the year ahead invites you to travel, write and study for pleasure. Instead of trying to further your career, try feeding your intellect instead. Devoting time to your favorite hobbies will give you an attractive glow that is hard to resist. You'll set the pace for a budding romance.
