December 2022 Cancer Love Horoscope
'Tis the season for giving! Acts of service is one of the five "love languages"—and likely the one you'll be speaking for the first week of December. Romantic Venus is in Sagittarius and your supportive sixth house until December 9, putting you in a helpful mood. A mistletoe moment is lovely, but right now you care more about being there in grounding and practical ways for your partner.
With Venus in this health-conscious zone, you might initiate a clean eating regimen for the two of you, or get going on a joint fitness goal. You're also adept at problem-solving, and nothing makes you feel happier than listening and offering counsel to your S.O. as they sort things out. Solo Crabs might meet someone special while engaging in healthy pursuits, like stocking up on turmeric and flaxseed oil, or sweating it out in a rigorous yoga class.
Just watch for a critical or codependent streak. Pointing out areas where someone could do better is fine up to a point. But too much nitpicking and fussing could really kill the mojo. Your self-improvement kick could veer into body image issues or unrealistic standards. 'Tis the season to enjoy some treats. Trying to abstain from sugar, wheat and dairy during the height of eggnog-and-fruitcake season is a setup to fail. Make moderation your method.
Meantime, sultry Mars is in Gemini on an extended trip from August 20 to March 25, heating up your twelfth house of fantasy, healing and escape. This sounds potentially dreamy, but the red planet is in stressful retrograde from October 30 until January 12, which could make stormy waves. Passive-aggressive behavior and paranoia could arise.
Since the twelfth house rules hidden information and the subconscious, you might struggle with trust issues during this phase. Be honest, Cancer: Have you ignored your boundaries and allowed them to be crossed? You could feel resentful or used if that is the case. Don’t waste your time seething in anger—just make your limits clear. Maybe you've been overly consumed with a loved one's "issues" and the codependent enabling has reached its limit. You might also be drawn to a clandestine arrangement—and you’ll want to think twice before playing with fire that way.
On December 9, Venus slips into Capricorn and your partnership house, emphasizing the magic of twosomes for the rest of 2022. Commitments could turn official (holiday proposal anyone?), or you could start thinking specifically about what you want in a partner. The clearer your vision of love is, the more likely you'll be able to manifest that. When Venus unites with all-in Pluto on New Year’s Eve, relationships get extra deep! But fair warning: communication planet Mercury is retrograde in Capricorn from December 29 on, which could give you second thoughts about love interest or cause one of you to send mixed signals. Try not to react before you get the facts—this could all be one big misunderstanding.
