It could be time for you to declare a social moratorium, so you can temporarily retreat from non-essential activities. Being in the company of people is often quite exhilarating, but eventually the noise begins to take its energetic toll. Don’t burn any bridges as you withdraw into your shell today, since nothing will be gained by blaming others for your emotional exhaustion. A generous dose of rest will replenish your soul. Irish novelist Laurence Sterne wrote, “In solitude the mind gains strength and learns to lean upon itself.”

Weekly Love Horoscope

If you're in a relationship, it's very likely that you and your partner are feeling drained. Fortunately you're in luck, because the universe wants to give you and your lover a break. Starting Wednesday, and through February 10, you'll find it easier to get away with your mate and fly under the radar. You might want to look into a secluded couple's retreat that will not only recharge your spiritual batteries but fortify your love connection. If you're single, this will be a great time to talk to a therapist about any blocks or unhealed relationship wounds you might have that are getting in the way of your next great love affair.

Monthly Horoscope

As 2018 begins you'll be feeling all the feels -- even the ones you didn't think you had! Don't worry: it won't be the kind of situation that drains you. In fact, you're likely to experience one of the most joyful and satisfying months thanks to a gorgeous Full Moon on January 1. This lunation will land right in your true love sector, helping you easily release your love out into the world to those who have a place in your heart. You'll also experience a sense of romantic gratification that might have eluded you lately -- and yes, that also means sexual gratification! If you have any children there might also be good news for one (or all) of them. Depending on their age, this can be anything from an educational to a career milestone but whatever the details, there will be plenty of reason to celebrate. You might also be ready to release a creative endeavor that you've put a great deal of heart and soul into. This will be something deeply personal and a reflection of your life and experiences. It'll serve as a work of art, but your deeper goal is to have it somehow inspire others -- maybe even provide a little healing. Your social life will ramp up near the New Moon in your 11th House of Groups and Friends on January 16. You can look forward to several opportunities to meet and mingle with new, like-minded people. The only problem with all of this socializing is that it's likely to make a pretty big dent in your wallet. Do whatever damage control you can in order to keep it manageable. You might also have an opportunity to schedule one or more speaking engagements or workshops, or initiate a major technology-related project that is connected to your business. Again, it will be an expense -- and might be more than you originally anticipated -- but if you keep focused on the end game, it's likely to all be worth it. Last but not least, a secret love might tempt you after January 17. Yes ... even if you're in a relationship.
The new year begins with a golden opportunity for love. On January 1 a delectable Full Moon in Cancer will land right in your romance sector, providing you with deep awareness connected to your feelings for someone special. If you have recently started to date someone, this could be the lunation that hits you over the head with the realization that you are, in fact, truly, madly, and deeply in love with this person. Even if you thought you were only casually dating, it's clear that the two of you have an undeniable emotional and sexual connection. In fact, it's palpable to anyone who sees you together. As a result, pay attention to any negative vibes you might get from a jealous friend around this time. He or she might be so caught up in their own romantic misery that they come across as a complete negative influence when it comes to your own love life potential. And if your friend tries to convince you NOT to listen to your heart but to listen to his or her reasoning instead, steer clear: this might be a direct manipulation tactic that will speak volumes about your friendship. If you find yourself completely single as the year begins, take heart: a supportive New Moon on January 16 might bring dating prospects through the internet, a dating app, or social media. Keep your options open. After January 17, whomever you're with will want to keep you all to him or herself. Make sure you schedule plenty of quiet, romantic, alone time to explore the treasures your lover wants to reveal.
