Snuggle up and relax because this is the calmest week of cosmic weather we’ve experienced in a long time. Venus connects with dreamy Neptune on the 28th, emphasizing our sensual, romantic and caring sides. Then on the 29th, Mercury stations retrograde in practical Capricorn, and meets up with sweet Venus—an aspect found in the chart of singers with refined voices and lyrics like Laura Marling, Feist and Rita Moreno. With Mercury retrograde, there will be communication, tech and transit delays through January 22. Though it’s annoying, the hold ups are meant to slow us down so we can reflect on what is and isn’t working, especially in our relationships. Whatever feels urgent can wait.
