It’s time to come out from that corner you retreated to after your heart got broken. Maybe you buried yourself in work, launched into a flurry of short-term affairs or quietly assumed a monastic lifestyle of early morning swims, afternoon jogs and evening yoga that effectively closed off any opportunity for anyone to get to know you. The retrograde Venus/Mercury conjunction on Jan. 7 shows that you and a certain someone who’s been hanging around on the periphery have more in common than you think. He has more than just a passing knowledge of what you’ve been through because he’s experienced it himself. This shared history of sorts can do a lot to bring you closer together if you’re willing to give it a try.
