This is a very important month for establishing new relationships and you could easily find yourself magnetically drawn to someone, yet this person may be elusive and unavailable, so the relationship could start with a lot of complications. However you shouldn't be deterred from pursuing new relationships just because on paper they look difficult, confusing, or there are a lot of obstacles. It is certainly true right now that the path of true love is never smooth so you should anticipate a long, winding road but you should be ready to grab that with excitement, not trepidation.
A new person that comes into your life can be both annoying and exciting, they trigger you in good ways and bad ways, but they are also a spur that allows you to understand more about yourself, and they may just be a catalyst to help you embrace new ways of thinking that set you on the exciting path of adventure that is 2023.
This is an excellent month for research, investigation, and showing determination and courage in pursuing a goal. If you are very dedicated to the job you do and have a great deal of desire to excel, you can become quite obsessive and fixated this month, but you should see some stunning results. You tend to work very hard and nothing deters you if there's something that you believe needs to be done, you will do it despite criticism or doubt from others, and you will be proven to have had the right approach.
With Mars and Venus affecting your sphere of marriage, what's important this month is communication and renewed understanding. So whatever happened last year, it's time for you and your partner to reopen the channels of communication and begin getting used to sharing with each other. Often last year things got in the way of effective communication, but at the beginning of this year, it's time to show each other you care by being understanding and by sharing a genuine interest in what the other is going through.
So the question you should both be asking each other this month, is, 'How are you? No really, how are you?' You guys don't want to be asking rhetorical questions that don't bring about meaningful replies, it's very important for you to set aside time to have conversations that are productive, and that you both work to walk away from feeling emotionally satisfied and feel that you've been understood, at least partially, or that cooperation is returning to the relationship.

"I am the most independent of all. Call me analytical, observant and reliable. I can be your good friend, a great business partner. My Straight thinking and logical problem solving will make you wish to be around me. Be with me, I’m calm and helpful. "
Virgoans are modest, self-effacing, hardworking, and practical on the surface, but are often earthy, warm, and loving beneath that surface, as befits their zodiac symbol, the Virgin, a composite figure of ancient goddesses of the earth and the harvest. Quick thinking and analytical, Virgoans have so much excess mental energy that they often are subject to stress and tension. Their pertchants for perfection and hard work also incline them towards being over-critical at times. The planet Mercury (the planet of communication) rules Gemini and Virgo. Virgoans are excellent and persuasive communicators who use their keen intellects to win arguments and win over people.
