Why November’s Venus in Sagittarius Transit Makes Us Optimistic About Love Again

Who will we fall for, and how, during the Venus in Sagittarius transit from November 16 to December 9? Hint: It’s not what (or who) you think!

Venus, the planet of love, beauty and luxury, lends its decadent energy to every zodiac sign for three to five weeks each year. When Venus visits worldly, optimistic Sagittarius each year, it makes us all a lot more adventurous in the game of love.

When is the Venus in Sagittarius transit?

Venus bounds into Sagittarius on Wednesday, November 16, 2022, at 1:09 AM EST. The Venus in Sagittarius transit lasts until December 9, 2022, when the planet of amour floats on to Capricorn.

What does the Venus in Sagittarius transit mean?

When ardent Venus swings into worldly Sagittarius, it stirs up attractions across every aisle. Sagittarius is the zodiac’s gambler and over the next few weeks of the Venus in Sagittarius transit, we could all take a Vegas-sized chance on romance. Candid confessions come spilling out, blowing covers on lovers everywhere. After weeks of covertly strategizing and quietly obsessing while Venus simmered in Scorpio, we’re ready to live and love out loud.

Pro tip: If you’re wondering what your love interest is really thinking, stop playing guessing games and find out what’s up. (Okay, okay, and do their chart.) Better to discover sooner than later if your affections are reciprocated—and the annual Venus in Sagittarius transit is the time.

Feeling shy about asking? Step up to the plate, even if you’re not 100% sure you can knock it out of the park. Sagittarius is the zodiac’s optimistic gambler. During this happy-go-lucky circuit it will be easier to brush off a rejection and keep on swiping.

Sagittarius is also the global nomad and while Venus tours this sign, cross-cultural connections simmer with extra spice. There couldn’t be a better time for couples to take a baecation—or singles to have an irrefutably hot fling while on vacation (or off at that work conference, shhhh). Not able to get away? Find your romantic and artistic stimulation, anywhere BUT the usual places.

How does the Venus in Sagittarius transit affect me?

When Venus vectors into broad-spectrum Sagittarius each year, we all love without limits. This can take people to either end of Cupid’s continuum. We may be wildly adventurous (read: generally non-monogamous) or hopelessly devoted to a mate. Does a relationship feel like a growth opportunity? That may be all it takes in order for us to sign on during the Venus in Sagittarius transit.

This energy is pure idealism. Can the two of you build something world-changing together? Expand, evolve and learn into your sunset years? If you sense endless possibilities from a merger, you might cliff-dive right in—even if you have no tangible proof of concept (and have known each other for like, a week).

Hope springs eternal with the Venus in Sagittarius transit; we become gamblers in the game of love. With this lucky sign shielding our hearts, we understand that fortune favors the bold. And if it doesn’t work out? Well, follow the Mae West principle: The best way to get over one (person) is to get under another.

When Venus visits a fire sign

Boredom is the enemy when Venus sashays through a fire sign (Aries, Leo, Sagittarius). Invite your love interest on a spontaneous adventure date, packed with surprises. Introduce yourself to someone who intrigues you. Know when to set the right mood—and how—with the power of a Sagittarius Venus.

Love knows no bounds or borders beginning November 16, Aries. As amorous Venus decamps to your adventurous ninth house until December 9, romantic possibilities outside your comfort zone—or country code—could emerge. Single? Keep an open mind.

Gemini

Time to get off the fence, Gemini! Love planet Venus sizzles through your relationship sector from November 16 to December 9, shining a light on your seventh house of important partnerships. If you’ve been waffling about a romantic or business union, get out of your head and tune in to your heart. That inner wisdom won’t lead you astray during the Venus in Sagittarius transit.

Be it cohabitation, walking down the aisle or co-signing a mortgage, don’t ponder things too long, or you might miss out!

With Venus in your corner for the next four weeks, there’s no better time to establish fresh health and fitness resolutions.

Studies show that it only takes 21 days to establish a new habit, and this Venus cycle can help you kick off routines that are decadent enough to be categorized as rituals.

Leo

New day, new ‘do, Leo? “Me so pretty” Venus decamps to your glamorous fifth house from November 16 to December 9, green-lighting some style upgrades. Get thee to the salon. Whether long and layered or closely cropped, your hair has always been your sign’s crowning glory. Slip into your favorite store during your lunch break. You could score a lovely addition to your wardrobe on the sale table. The four-week cycle of Venus in Sagittarius is passion-filled, so take full advantage—and the lead. Attached? Dress up power-couple style and arouse some envy with your hot arm candy.

Virgo

Goose-down pillows, batik textiles, Eames chairs: Yes, please! From November 16 to December 9, beautifying Venus launches her annual tour through your domestic fourth house, making you reach for the Roche Bobois catalog. What will it take to make your space feel more like the sweet sanctuary it should be? If you have all the right pieces, break out the bagua map and see what’s holding court in your love corner. (Oh, the hamper? No wonder you keep attracting people with dirty laundry!)

Before you start adding new items to your current scheme, give Chez Virgo a decluttering treatment and deep-clean. You can’t help but be in a grounded headspace when everything is in its proper place during the Venus in Sagittarius transit.

Libra

Don’t fold up those social-butterfly wings of yours, Libra. Your cosmic guardian, Venus, settles into your garrulous third house from November 16 to December 9, putting you in chatty spirits. Set up coffee dates and make dinner plans with friends and relatives you couldn’t squeeze into your packed holiday season schedule. While you’re at it, warm up those right-swiping fingers. You could set Tinder ablaze!

For coupled Libras, love planet Venus lends a hand in the communication department. Express your affection with sweet notes, tributes and some naughty texts (just not during your honey’s big meeting, k?).

Scorpio

Money matters take center stage from November 16 to December 9, courtesy of value-driver Venus decamping to your second house of finance. If your bank balance took a hit from the holidays, the four-week Venus in Sagittarius transit helps you get back on track.

Question: Does your day job really fulfill you, Scorpio? If you’re craving more personal expression in how you make a living, consider how to make self-employment (part-time or full-time) a reality. Take advantage of social Venus’ influence to advance your dream, remembering to mix and mingle in the right circles. Coupled Scorpios should use the next month to align on budgeting—a big key to staying happily attached.

Sagittarius

Love is in the air, courtesy of Venus’ annual tour through your sign, from November 16 to December 9. If you’re single, you could fall head over ankle boots for a fresh face—or even flip a friend into a lover. Already attached, Sagittarius? Over the four weeks of the Venus in Sagittarius transit, make it abundantly obvious (just a hair shy of being obnoxious, that is) if you’re feeling someone. You don’t need to hire a skywriter to profess your amour.

But hey, if you think it will go over well…even the smallest of gestures can make a big impact. That said, don’t put your independent interests on the back burner in the process. An even balance between “me” and “we” makes for a happy Archer.

Capricorn

Truce time, Capricorn. Beginning November 16, peacekeeping Venus decamps to your healing twelfth house until December 9. If you’ve been at odds with your partner or someone close to you, this Venus in Sagittarius transit helps ease the tension, making things easier to discuss and resolve. Even if all relationships have been smooth sailing, an old issue could re-emerge. See this as a chance to finally have an honest conversation about it and leave it in the past. Unattached? Beware codependent dynamics. If you’re giving so much it hurts, take a huge step back during this cycle.

Aquarius

Flutter, flutter, social butterfly. On November 16, amiable Venus moves into your social eleventh house for the next four weeks. Mixing and mingling with new and old friends will be high on your priority list until the Venus in Sagittarius transit ends on December 9. If you want to warm up your winter socializing, consider hosting a bash or tapping Venus’ creative powers to rally your squad for some group travel. (Destination birthday celebration, anyone?) If you’re attached, heading out on the town with a crew can give your union extra oomph. Fresh conversations are bound to get your love light burning bright, Aquarius.

Pisces

As Venus kicks off her annual four-week visit to your ambitious tenth house on November 16, you could have a love affair with your career, Pisces. If you’re collaborating with savvy people, you won’t mind burning the midnight oil. Just try not to abandon your friend circle or S.O. for dinner meetings with your work wife!

Until the Venus in Sagittarius transit ends on December 9, the aesthetic planet encourages you to embroider more creativity into your work, from dreaming up an innovative project to giving your desk a makeover. In love, you may become more goal-oriented. Look ahead as a couple, and align goals. Single? Swipe left on the dreamers and drifters. You need someone who is fired up about the future.
