Sagittarius Monthly Horoscope

December 2021 Sagittarius Love Horoscope

Turn up the heat or tone it down? You’ll want to do a little (or a lot) of both this month. On the temperature-rising side, lusty Mars is making its biennial visit to Sagittarius from December 13 to January 24. Not only will your confidence and charisma go through the roof, but you’ll find yourself turning heads without trying. Your sexy swagger is back—and it looks good on you, Archer!

Tempering that feisty fierceness, however, is the other love planet, Venus, which is in Capricorn and your reliable second house for an extra-long trip from November 5 until March 6. Don’t overturn everything you’ve built in a flash of lust or anger—or just impulsiveness. Abandoning a solid, promising connection for a hedonistic weekend can prove disastrous to the kind of stability you’re also craving. 

On December 21, Venus turns retrograde (backward) until January 29, a once-every-18-months disruption that can create chaos in your love life, bring back an ex or force you to confront unresolved issues. Venus will be retrograde in Capricorn, which can spark some conflict about money. Perhaps your partner is reckless with the credit cards…and that doesn’t feel good when you think about whether or not this is someone you want to buy a house or raise children with someday. Or maybe you’ve racked up expenses slowly but surely through the daily demands of modern life: smartphones, gas bills, dinners out. Since the second house rules values, you might also find that your self-worth needs a little sprucing as old confidence issues flare up. When in doubt, speak up. This is not a time to brush things under the proverbial rug. Besides, when you admit your insecurities or concerns, they have less of a grip on you. 

You and your fellow Sagittarians might benefit from doing a little personal inventory around your love life. Heck, you might be due for a full-blown audit, especially as Venus retrograde meets up with penetrating Pluto on Christmas, forcing you to look within as limiting beliefs and self-worth issues you may have blamed on a partner. The cosmic lesson? “Know thyself” (and own it). Do you tend to play the helper or give advice to everyone while not exactly walking your own talk? That tendency could actually be an obstacle to real love and intimacy. 

Fun fact: Venus retrogrades through the same sign every eight years. If you can remember back that far, reflect on Venus’ last retrograde through Capricorn in December 2013, as you may see similar themes come up now. 

All your biggest love days, revealed.
