Life feels scattered, as if everything is moving at warp speed. The Lunar Eclipse in Scorpio doesn’t help your cause, it only magnifies what you’re giving too much attention (or angst) to.

It’s beneficial for you to express yourself honestly, partners will be amused and attracted to your unfiltered chat.
♒️ Aquarius: January 20 – February 18
You’re not into conventional paths. You’d rather satisfy your own heart and soul, than that of the masses.

In love, its best to keep the faith. Give people the chance to surprise you.
