2011 winter love forecast

A chill pervades the winter months and may even linger until March. Although there is plenty of celebrating around the Winter Solstice, New Year’s Eve and Valentine’s Day, chilly days and nights are truly delightful when you’re in love. Will that flame last until the spring thaw?

Venus, the planet of love, begins winter in Aquarius and moves to Pisces in mid-January, heading into Aries on February 8 and then making its way to Taurus before the Spring Equinox. This variety means a dynamic series of love attractions and challenges for every sign.

When the planet of love slows down and stays in a sign for a long period, some will be blessed and others will lose in the game of love. But this winter, few will escape the balance of harmony and tension where Venus rules. Love, art and beauty will tempt, taunt, flirt, fly away and then fall into your lucky lap; but not necessarily in that order.

Read below for your sign’s forecast to see when love’s warmest gifts will be bestowed by the touch of a lover.

  • Aries March 21 – April 19

    If you can wait until Valentine’s Day, patience will pay off. Your love forecast hinges on Venus getting into your zodiac sign as you look around for a man who really matches the values you have in this world. Staying true to your ideals is important in a partner.

  • Taurus April 20 – May 20

    You might just be getting started with a lover. The holidays and New Year can be a blinding blur of passion and getting to know your partner with an exciting intimacy. Late January could bring some challenges as �too much too soon� gives way to certain constraints and realities.

  • Gemini May 21 – June 21

    Mercury, your ruling planet, is out of its retrograde before the start of winter, so the chaos of the late autumn will not be a hindrance for you in your quest for passion. The pleasures of the flesh are inviting, but conversation gets weary. Intellectual companionship leads to fulfillment in early February.

  • Cancer June 22 – July 22

    The most important part of winter for your partnership pursuits is between December 21 and January 20. The Sun’s visit to Capricorn coincides with your best opportunity to get close to soulmate material. A person who understands you needs a chance to get to love what he already likes.

  • Leo July 23 – August 22

    The ultimate holiday cheer might mean less to single Lions, but late January gives you something to roar about. Passionate exchanges with potential partners will leave you wishing you had an identical twin with whom to enjoy the best of both worlds. Early March, on the other hand, demands you make a choice and keep it.

  • Virgo August 23 – September 22

    Hunger for a lover may appear to be desperation. Playing it cool and casual makes them beg for a date. Hone in on the one who seeks commitment. A little poetry should go a long way as your practical choices in love start to yield results. The New Year will be warm indeed.

  • Libra September 23 – October 22

    As always, Love hangs in the balance for Libra. The speed with which Venus moves through so many zodiac signs this winter reflects many love possibilities for you throughout the season. But understand that running to another partner with a new hope may be no better than sticking with the love you have.

  • Scorpio October 23 – November 21

    Things are a little less private these days. Everyone seems to know your business. The possibilities of dating an intense extrovert are tempered by his over-sharing of what you consider to be intimate details. Pace yourself with discussions of what can be done to make you both happy.

  • Sagittarius November 22 – December 21

    You are unusually practical when it comes to things these days, and love is just another thing to be less flippant about. You have a great structure this winter, a carryover from lessons recently learned, and if a great one stops by, you will work things out. If not, friends and family have never been nicer.

  • Capricorn December 22 – January 19

    The birthday coincides with a new level of passion and trust in your relationship. The days of wild experimentation and risk are over. The security you two have in each other’s arms is reinforced with an enmeshing presence in your community. Being a model couple carries responsibility.

  • Aquarius January 20 – February 18

    The fun might never stop as this winter sees you regularly being the center of attention. A casual holiday season leads to your New Year’s resolutions being bold and earnest. Focus on what can actually be accomplished and you will do well. Partnership passion is the icing on the �all-winter-long� cake.

  • Pisces February 19 – March 20

    You are under the spell of a strong and seductive force. This person takes you to levels of passion that you might never have imagined. There is nothing cold about this winter at all, besides perhaps your attitude to everyone else in your life as you orbit ever closer to this powerful love god of yours.
