December 2022 Scorpio Love Horoscope
Slow and steady, Scorpio. Until December 9, alluring Venus is in Sagittarius, your stabilizing second house, grounding your love life in the here and now. Are you and your partner on the same page when it comes to spending and finances? Get aligned before the holidays arrive. Can you tweak your routines to make dinner at home a few nights a week to save money? If single, you're focused on attracting a secure partner (quality over quantity)! Since the second house rules sensuality, indulge in a massage or shop for some chic holiday outfits now that parties are a thing again.
Meantime, sultry Mars is in Gemini on an extended trip from August 20 to March 25, heating up your eighth house of sex and intimacy. Sounds awesome, BUT…the red planet is in stressful retrograde from October 30 until January 12, disrupting the holiday heat.
Mars retrograde can incite jealousy and possessiveness, which you already have a reputation for, Scorpio. Watch your suspicious tendencies—and your obsessive ones. Deep down, a controlling streak may reveal where you're afraid of being vulnerable or abandoned. Instead of clinging tighter, find the courage to breathe through your fears.
Trust is like a muscle: It only works if you exercise it! Of course, if you have legitimate concern or an unresolved betrayal, there’s no sweeping that aside. Use Mars retrograde to hash things out, perhaps with the help of a neutral third party. Conversations could get raw and uncomfortable, but open dialogue is the only way through. A tempting but toxic ex could also resurface over the holidays. While a reunion hookup could be the physical encounter you’ve been craving, consider the ramifications of getting emotionally attached. Be especially careful on December 1, when Venus and Mars lock horns in a testy opposition.
Luckily, some lightness will offset this Mars intensity. On December 9, Venus sashays into Capricorn and your flirty, social third house until January 2, lightening the romantic mood. This playful injection will be a welcome shift that can carry you through the holidays. From now until the end of the year, you're quite the charmer—so get out and mingle. You're the life of the party at holiday gatherings and feel more casual when it comes to love. You might even cross the romantic threshold with a friend!
Couples will enjoy mingling together—there's no time like the present to hit the holiday party circuit or host a casual gathering at your place. Maybe don’t do it on New Year’s Eve though. With Mercury turning retrograde in Capricorn from December 29 to January 18, your social groove could go awry.
