CosmiTec's Love Letter, Issue #049 -- Styles of Love
December 21, 2008

While the Holiday Season is coming upon us with fast speed, we're doing anything we can to get our 2009 forecasts for the 12 zodiac signs up on our web site before January 1.

We're trying to bring more "individualized" forecasts and are going the extra mile to make sure the forecasts are more in-depth and take into account the Ascendant (and Sun sign) degrees again as we've done in the past.

We had to make choices though as we cannot do everything all at once. The workload is just heavy. Because our priority goes out to the 2009 forecasts, we were not able to write a very long article in this Love Letter.

Anyway, this does not mean the short article about astrological styles of love is not worth it (on the contrary!). If everything goes well, you should be able to read the forecasts before January 1.

Our resolutions for 2009? Bringing more and more content in this Love Letter (and online on our web site). Also, we'd like to change the look and feel of our web site which now contains hundreds and hundreds of pages so that we cannot do this alone conveniently anymore.

It would possibly take a whole year to transfer everything. This spare time we have not at all.

Fortunately, our site management is planning some novelties and if the features can give our site a more modern look and a better feel, we sure will make use of it. We will keep the background light yellow though because it reads better than a white background and is not so hard on the eyes.

Hope the end of the year may bring lots of positive energy and some kind of love generously to all of you.

Love Forecasts for January 2009

Around January 1 Mercury of communication enters the air sign Aquarius in which it will feel quite comfortable, though unpredictable. Aquarius can be shocking and disruptive so that sudden breaking news is likely to occur during its passage in this zodiac sign.

Venus enters compassionate Pisces around January 3 and becomes artistic and creative with an eye for all things beautiful. Love becomes idealistic, eventually platonic, and very gentle too. Enjoy cozy moments with some romantic music and a well-balanced atmosphere.

Around January 4-5, Venus and the Sun build a very nice and auspicious configuration that will bring favors, luck, money and/or love if you're born around October 9-10, November 22, January 6-7, February 19-20, April 4-5, May 21-22, July 7-8 or August 23-24.

By the way, it's an auspicious moment to marry or propose.

Around January 5, Jupiter enters Aquarius, adding to the joy and favorable moments most Aquarians will experience. Actually, most Aquarians will find protection and help the whole year long as Jupiter will remain in this zodiac sign the year long. With Jupiter representing Fortuna Major in Aquarius, this zodiac sign now can have all the benefits.

Around January 9, Venus is in a "photogenic configuration" denoting that you will be able to live harmonious and (visual and visible) beautiful moments. It may be a flirtatious time for some of you too, especially if you are born around February 25-26, May 26-27, August 30-31 or November 27-28.

Around January 11, love's sorrow is part of your life if you're born around January 12-13, February 26-27, April 11-12, May 28-29, July 14-15, August 30-31, October 15-16 or November 29. Also, you may not feel too good, feel not in the mood at all and illness is possible/likely.

Around the same day of January 11, Mercury stations at 7° Aquarius and turns retrograde. This is clearly not too good a day as it may bring all kinds of separation, clashes, harsh disputes, dissatisfaction and, eventually, juridicial issues.

Don't forget that 7° Aquarius is a degree of love's separation too so that it confirms or even adds to the possible relationship issues...

Mercury joins Jupiter at 3° Aquarius around January 18. Don't exaggerate and don't indulge too much now. However, it's still a very good time to propose in a grand and unforgettable manner. You can gain much public appeal, especially if you are born around January 24, April 23, July 26, October 26.

If you are a pregnant woman and have to give birth around this day, expect twins.

Around January 20, the Sun enters Aquarius and conjuncts Mercury which now retrogressed at 0° Aquarius too. There's a lot of tension and, eventually, breaking news in the air.

Venus conjuncts Uranus at 20° Pisces around January 23, breaking up relationships (in a broad sense) and putting quite some stress and strain upon your (love) life too. This is especially so if you are born around March 10-11, June 10-11, September 12-13 or December 11-12.

Around January 24 the Sun conjuncts Jupiter at 4° Aquarius while Venus at 21° Pisces opposes Saturn at 21° Virgo. If you're having your birth day around this day (give or take a day), please don't propose or marry during your (solar return) year that starts now. The Venus-Saturn opposition will indicate love's separation and the need to feel and be free.

There may be issues re an older female in your environment too.

The same holds true if you're born around March 12, April 24, June 12, July 27, September 14, October 27 or December 13.

The Venus-Saturn opposition is not only devastating to your love life, it will also severely restrict your financial situation. Indeed, shortage of money is possible.

January 26 brings us to a Solar Eclipse at 6° Aquarius, the influence of which will last 6 months. The meaning of this Solar Eclipse is one of a "dam crack." Why so?


  • the Solar Eclipse is at 6° Aquarius, a degree that is very often found in situations in which things crack, break, burst, suddenly collapse. It's also found in horoscopes of attacks and assassinations (on VIPs or otherwise).

  • the Solar Eclipse is in the midpoint of Saturn/Uranus (in the 45° dial, orb 1°) and Saturn-Uranus is a combo that indicates a very sudden change, a sudden disruption, collapse or rupture. It breaks up stable (and traditional) situations. Saturn is all about authorities, stability, formal things and structures. Uranus is all about breaking up, disrupting, shocking and CHANGE etc.
This Solar Eclipse will work out on a mundane level (bringing an assassination of a VIP among others but this is beyond the scope of this monthly love forecast) and on an individual level in which relationships (in a broad sense) may break up very suddenly from now on within 6 months.

Around January 27, Mercury joins Mars at 23° Capricorn, making for some oral and verbal discussions or tests. Disputes are likely too. Mind your words as you may speak faster than you think.

Because this conjunction happens around the Solar Eclipse, lots of talks, speeches and verbal attacks will mark the coming 6 months too.

The Sun joins the Moon's Node around January 29 while Venus builds some very difficult midpoints denoting that some bonds will be questioned. There's trouble because of a beloved one.

If you're born around January 31-February 1, May 1-2, August 3-4 or November 3-4, expect stress, a lot of tension and a possible physical separation from others around January 31. Some of you may encounter enforced changes, some others will encounter very hard work and difficult tasks to accomplish.

If your zodiac sign is Cancer or Leo, this month of January can be rather difficult for you.

Styles of Love

It's quite obvious love is not the same for everyone.

Different astrologers have analyzed the zodiac signs and delineated the signs according to archetypal and traditional principles to identify how each zodiac sign defines love.

Some astrologers interpret the zodiac signs on the horizon (Ascendant-Descendant axis) to find styles of love, resulting in six styles of love.

Other astrologers interpret the fixed signs (the fixed cross) (Taurus, Leo, Scorpio and Aquarius), resulting in four styles of love.

Let's take a look at the first group of 6 styles of love delineated from the zodiac signs on the Ascendant-Descendant axis first:

  • Aries/Libra: this is Eros, the erotic lover, representing the most physical style of love. Often, there's love at first sight. These signs live for love.

  • Taurus/Scorpio: this is the possessive lover and the most passionate style of love. There's a lot of intensity in love. After the passion, material comfort sets in and is necessary to sustain the love relationship.

  • Gemini/Sagittarius: this is the playful lover with flirts and seduction here and there. Freedom is extremely important in these love relationships.

  • Cancer/Capricorn: this is the pragmatic lover, traditional and the most ambitious. The career drives and family roots/background are important to start the relationship and keep it going.

  • Leo/Aquarius: this is the friendly lover, often growing from friendship. It's the most affectionate style of love resulting in talks and shared interests. Both need fun and pleasure/amusement.

  • Virgo/Pisces: this is the unselfish lover, often detached and likely to be celibate. It's the most compassionate and self-sacrificing style of love. Love grows when both partners are familiar with each other, resulting in care.
Now, let's take a look at the second group of styles of love delineated from the fixed cross:
  • Taurus (2nd house): it's about fixed earth, the most physical sign of the zodiac meaning that love is about the physical body. Love is purely a physical thing/expression.

  • Leo (5th house): this fixed fire sign is about love-making, children and romance. It's sexual love or Eros.

  • Scorpio (8th house): this fixed water sign is emotional and spiritual and goes very very deep in love. It's often called Agape.

  • Aquarius (11th house): this fixed air sign is about friendship, brother- (and sister-)hood. It's non-sexual love or Philos (as opposed to Eros).
