December 2022 Aries Love Horoscope
Keep an open mind, Aries. Until December 9, love planet Venus is in Sagittarius and your ninth house of growth and expansion, where it's been making lusty waves since November 16. Open your mind to people different than your usual "type." In a relationship? A horizon-broadening trip for two could cement your bond. Put that on your gift list—or among your prominent 2023 resolutions.
A cautionary note, though: Mercury retrograde will mess with travel from December 29 to January 18. If you’re heading out of city limits over the holidays, try to do it on the early side—and plan ahead for potential delays and SNAFUs. The last thing you need is to take your stress out on each other.
Meantime, sultry Mars (your ruling planet) is in Gemini on an extended trip from August 20 to March 25, heating up your communication house. However, the red planet is in stressful retrograde from October 30 until January 12, disrupting the holiday cheer.
This Mars cycle makes you flirty and frisky—and even more outspoken than usual. Careful with that, Aries. What you think is witty banter and sexy repartee could land as overly aggressive or worse. Not every thought that goes through your head should be said aloud. Take extra precautions on December 1 when Mars opposes peaceful Venus, and on December 7, when Mars aligns with the potent Gemini full moon, making people extra testy.
In the best-case scenario: Solo Rams might feel sparks with a casual acquaintance or platonic connection (perhaps someone from your past), or simply win a slew of admirers with your playful personality. With Mars inciting a devil’s advocate streak, couples might argue more, but you can also spice up your pillow talk by confessing a few fantasies and desires.
On December 9, Venus marches into Capricorn and your tenth house of structure, turning the tenor of relationships more practical between now and January 2. Where IS this partnership going, anyway, Aries? If you’re partnered, you may want to dial up the commitment—perhaps buying a home together, talking marriage, or making a long-term plan.
Single? You could find yourself trading your carefree margarita nights for realistic fireside chats about the future. With Venus in your traditional tenth house, pass on the fly-by-night flings and seek out stable partners. You could also be drawn to someone who's older (or younger) than you.
Mercury, Venus, Pluto AND the Sun are all in Capricorn from December 21 on, and that energy could find you feeling ready to settle down. But please don’t rush: Mercury is retrograde in Capricorn from December 29 to January 18, which could give you second thoughts or make you think more deeply about your values and what you both want for the future.
