AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 – Feb. 17)
There’s often an undeniable attraction when Venus conjoins Mars in the sky (February 22d) . Yet what should be a romantic encounter can easily turn into a game of one-upmanship when they come together in Aquarius. That’s because each planet is trying to impress the other with their intellect and worldly experience. Since neither is willing to play the appreciative audience, it can turn into a standoff. Be the first to praise the other person – even if it feels like you’re fanning their ego – and you’ll soon see that the reason they wanted to impress you was in order to get you to like them.
