With a new year coming fast, it’s the time of year where focus drifts towards resolutions. In the middle of gifting, baking, and trying to find the right holiday style (coordinating which ugly Christmas sweater to wear to each party, of course), it’s time to start thinking about change! Some want to lose weight, go back to school, or change careers; and some put their focus on making changes in relationships. Well, it’s the perfect time for that with Venus entering Aquarius!

Venus moves into Aquarius tomorrow, December 20, and stays in this Air sign until January 13.

This is the energy that prevails as you think about the kinds of relationship resolutions you may want to put on your list for 2020. How does this Venus in Aquarius 2019 - 2020 transit impact your relationship resolutions?

What is Venus in Aquarius?

Let’s break this transit down a little. Venus is the planet of love and relationships, and governs the people in your life. Venus wants us all to come together and enjoy one another’s company. Venus is a pleasant planet, and helps us get along.

Aquarius is an Air and Fixed sign, so this sign is in its head (as all Air signs are), and big on communication, expression, and thinking. Unlike the other two Air signs (Gemini and Libra), Aquarius is stickier (the Fixed signs like to stay in one place). Though the natural ruling planet for Aquarius is Uranus, the planet of change, so changes may need to occur first.

If you were born with Venus in Aquarius in your natal chart, you’re someone who likes things to be different in love. You likely don’t go for whatever you feel is “traditional” or “normal”. Instead, you like quirky and weird, and are fascinated by people who march to the beat of their own drummer. That is who is most likely to get your heart!

You can seem aloof at times in relationships and dealing with others, but it’s usually only when you’re not truly invested. Because Aquarius is a Fixed sign, once you are committed, you can commit hard! And you’re a lot less likely to keep your feelings to yourself.

Venus in Aquarius 2019-2020: Tips for Relationship Resolutions

Here are a few tips you can keep in mind as you work on your relationship resolutions for 2020:

1. Be open to pushing outside of your (or your relationship’s) comfort zone.

If you come up with a relationship resolution that seems a little too out there, that may be exactly what you should focus on! Aquarius wants us to venture outside of our comfort zones and push outside of the boundaries of our lives, so be willing to try.

2. If single, make resolutions that bring totally new, different people into your life.

The more different they are, the better! Give people a try that you’ve never dated before. Venus in Aquarius is into dating people of a variety of backgrounds and lifestyles. Don’t be boring!

3. If in a relationship, make resolutions that create new experiences between you.

Venus in Aquarius wants you to shake things up in love, so focus on resolutions that give the opportunity for you to do something completely new and different with your partner. Yes, this can be in the bedroom (this article on sex positions for the signs may help with that!), but don’t box yourself in by thinking of just that! When was the last time you did something outside of your comfort zones together that was a positive experience for both of you? Think in those terms.
