Libra Monthly Horoscope

December 2021 Libra Love Horoscope

Cozy up for the holidays? Your ruler, romantic Venus, is continuing its extra-long visit to Capricorn and your fourth house of home, family and emotional foundations. From November 5 to March 6, Venus will bring a gracious and sensual touch to this sector of your chart. Time to meet the parents, bring someone home for the holidays or just get extra cozy with your favorite plus-one?  

It all sounds lovely, but with Venus going retrograde (backward) from December 19 to January 29, some of your exciting plans to swap keys, expand your family or plunk down a deposit on a cute little Victorian might get delayed. Venus retrograde is a notoriously bumpy time for love, a six-week disruption that comes along every 18 months. And since Venus happens to be your ruling planet, there’s a good chance you’ll feel it more intensely. 

Here’s the silver lining, Libra: Retrogrades are times to reflect and strengthen your foundation. During Venus retrograde, you may end up reviewing what’s most important to you on fundamental levels within a relationship. Or if you’re single and looking, you can spend some introspective hours thinking about what kind of relationship will help you plant deep and abiding roots. 

In the meantime, passionate Mars splits the month between Scorpio and Sagittarius. Until December 13, Mars in Scorpio will heat up your practical-yet-sensual second house. Money stress can add tension to a relationship, but you’ll be equally tempted to throw caution to the wind and go big on your gifting and holiday indulgences. After all, what’s more romantic than drinks at a gorgeous hotel bar done up with all the lights and garlands, or a prix-fixe dinner? No need to break the bank for love, Libra. Maybe you’ll score a quick freelance gig or money-making opportunity so you can boost your budget and have some extra cash to enjoy the seasonal spoils.

When Mars visits Sagittarius and your communication house from December 13 to January 24, sparks could fly with a friend and you might even enjoy a no-strings fling before the year ends. With the red planet here, you could be extra flirty, but also prone to bickering. Careful: This can be especially dicey during Venus retrograde, especially if you have the famous Libra contrarian streak that likes to play devil’s advocate. Stay away from snark and even subtle button-pushing now—and perhaps avoid controversial topics around the holiday dinner table just this once? We’re not saying you shouldn’t stand up for your beliefs, Libra, but under these fraught skies, timing is everything.  

All your biggest love days, revealed.
