December 2022 Virgo Love Horoscope
Cozy up, Virgo. As the month begins, you're feeling sentimental and domestic, thanks to love planet Venus moving through Sagittarius, your tender and emotional fourth house, until December 9. Venus has been burrowed into this uber-personal zone of your chart since November 16. As holiday season kicks into full swing, you could be ready to set up house with your mate or even start a family.
Ramp up the self-care, too: Splurge on a spa day or bond with your friends over a heartwarming pre-holiday potluck. Taking impeccable care of yourself and honoring your emotions is an important step in attracting the right mate. Since your home is a hub for lovin' at under these skies, you might even Feng Shui your bedroom to set the amorous ambience.
Meantime, sultry Mars is in Gemini on an extended trip from August 20 to March 25, heating up your tenth house of career and long-term goals. However, the red planet is in stressful retrograde from October 30 until January 12, disrupting the holiday cheer. On December 1, Venus and Mars will make an exact opposition to each other, which could make you feel uncomfortably pulled between your personal and professional demands. Stress from both areas could spill into your relationship if you’re not careful.
Fair warning: Mars will be retrograde here until January 12. High-pressure deadlines could cut into quality couple time or distract single Virgos from romance altogether. The holiday season might also bring up some old intimacy fears or pressures to pair off. You can't fathom that nosy relative asking you yet again why you're still single. Coupled Virgos could also feel at odds about what you both want for the next chapter of your relationship. It's a good time to have frank talks about your future together, but make sure you discuss other things, too. Otherwise, your one-track mind could spiral into worry, making drama where there need not be any. Sometimes, taking things one day at a time is best.
The moody vibes begin to dissipate when Venus swings into Capricorn and your fifth house of passion, lust and self-expression on December 9. Now you're feeling more like your bold, beautiful and bawdy self. Magnetic Venus puts romance back on the agenda. Slide into something silky, glamorous or body-con. For single Virgos, the rest of this year is a feisty, flirty and passionate beauty pageant, so enjoy it! Couples might have a romantic rebirth, too, spending more time being festive and fun (as opposed to, say, worrying about whose turn it was to pick up the toilet paper.) You'll both shine at holiday soirees, so get all dolled up and hit the town together.
Exercise caution at the end of the month, though. On December 29 Mercury turns retrograde, which can stir up tension, reactivity and explosive disagreements. Channel any of that intensity into bedroom spice, especially when Venus and no-taboos Pluto unite on New Year’s Eve.
