Even though a brand-new year is nearly upon us, the love planet, Venus, continues its reverse motion until January 30, meaning that romance may be delayed as you roll into 2014. Rather than start a new romance or begin a new chapter with someone you love, there's a good chance you'll be drawn to reconnect with a former lover or perhaps revisit old relationship rituals.
It may be difficult to escape the ghosts of relationships past now, but you don't necessarily have to go back to the way things were. As you reminisce about bygone love, think of it as a way to learn from the past. If you made a mistake, forgive yourself and look to the future; if you didn't get what you wanted, reflect on what you could do differently next time.
