December 2022 Taurus Love Horoscope
It's getting hot in here! Magnetic Venus is moving through Sagittarius, your eighth house of intimacy, sex and bonding, until December 9. This seductive starmap heats up your one-on-one encounters. Pass on any boring cocktail chatter and small talk. Prepare to get familiar fast—if you use words at all! A holiday proposal or pregnancy could also be in the stars for some Bulls.
Meantime, the other love planet, sizzling Mars, is making an extended trip through Gemini and your stable second house from August 20 to March 25. However, the red planet is in stressful retrograde from October 30 until January 12, which could find you feeling nostalgic about a past partner over the holidays or longing for easier times.
Mars retrograde can fuel conflict and stress. Bills and finances could be a heated topic for couples, and you might be feeling pressure to lavish your loved ones with gifts Turn fiscal sparring into a strategy session and get on the same spending page. You or your partner might also be consumed with work deadlines and have less time for romance. Figure out ways to support each other, like offering your problem-solving skills or surprising your love with their favorite dinner after a particularly grueling day. Life can be hard enough as is, so no need to turn your relationship into a tension den.
On December 9, you start to crave more breathing room when Venus moves into Capricorn and your liberated ninth house. If you're traveling for the holidays, you could meet someone en route to your festivities. Sparks could fly with a love interest of another culture or background, even a different set of political beliefs (a trickier proposition these days, but it can happen).
For coupled Bulls, traveling together and learning could keep the fires burning for the rest of the year. Don't assume you know everything about each other—there's always another layer of discovery to make. Just bear in mind that Mercury will be retrograde for three weeks starting December 29, so try to plan your adventures on the earlier side or for after January 18. Silver lining: The moon is in Taurus this New Year’s Eve, which will hopefully offset any of Mercury’s disruptions!
