Been hoping to hit the romantic reset button? Your moment arrives on Friday, December 20, when vixen Venus vamps into Aquarius and your eighth house of intimacy and eroticism. From now until January 13, 2020, you have a cosmic permission slip to put your desires and fantasies front and center. The catch? You need to be straightforward about what your heart wants! If you’re in an LTR, your partner would probably love to pander to your sultriest urges—but no one’s a mind reader, Cancer. If you’re uncomfortable saying what you want, try just a live demonstration, complete with props, toys and costumes. Sometime over the next three weeks (with the amorous planet in this seductive sector), find a way to ask them what THEY have been dreaming of. This is a perfect opportunity to talk about your goals for a shared future, even if at first you seem to be chasing different objectives. Single? This could be a fruitful few weeks while the sultry planet is in Aquarius, ruler of the digital universe. Although your charms are most palpable IRL, don’t rule out dating apps. Be more engaged, not just waiting for people to find you. You may feel more empowered to make the first move, even if said “move” is just a flirty and forward comment on their profile or photos. The holiday-party circuit could be teeming with intriguing options, but you might need to break the ice. Glam up when you do go out, and don’t be too quick to write someone off because they don’t meet your normal criteria. With your mysterious eighth house lit up, digging beneath the surface could yield gold!
If there’s something you’ve been hoping to do on your own, do it before the weekend. You may not be getting much time to yourself starting this Saturday, when the Sun commences its annual four-week tour of Capricorn and your dynamic-duos zone. You could get swept up in the festive holiday spirit, with friends and a love interest (or several) pulling you to various parties and events every night. If you’re in a relationship, make time to be alone in your couple bubble. Just an hour here and there can solidify and deepen your intimacy. Single? Whether you’re feeling family pressure to couple up or just an organic urge to merge, your thoughts will turn to promising people or perhaps an old (but hardly dead in the water) relationship with the potential to be revived. Before you reach the “point of no return,” get clear on what you truly desire and need and what your deal breakers are. If you’re in an LTR but currently going through a rough patch, decide whether this has the potential to make you happy in the long run. If the likelihood is high, it’s worth rolling up your sleeves and doing your emotional homework.
Keep your weekend calendar as open and flexible as possible, Crab! Venus slams into a rare mashup with unpredictable Uranus on Sunday, and you may regret locking yourself into too many commitments (or ANY). People and activities you normally love may feel a bit restrictive, and the last thing you want is anyone taking offense at your need for freedom. Let friends know you’re a “maybe”—and that they shouldn’t take it personally. If you’ve made a firm commitment, on the other hand, suck it up and honor that promise. What goes around really does come around.
