Well Virgo, as December begins you have a plethora of planets in the two houses that govern love! Pluto, Mercury and Venus are all in your fifth house at the top of the month and romantic Neptune is in the seventh. Neptune had been retrograde for five months, possibly causing confusion. Singles may have wondered if it was even worth it to be involved with someone, and attached Virgos may have been unsure as to what was going on in their relationship. The watery planet finally went direct on November 19th, which means that clarity should be returning to matters of the heart.
Better yet is that candid Mercury, planet of communication, enters your house of romance on December 2nd, a blessing when it comes to holding serious talks with someone you love. This includes children as well as a lover, so if you need to work out issues with a kid, even if they’re an adult at this point, the next few weeks are good for doing so.
The 10th is a stellar day for romance as Mercury forms a sweet angle with amorous Neptune. This is a s Saturday, so plan a special date night with your honey. It just so happens that the sun and long-term Saturn also form a glorious aspect the same day in your domestic sector, making this an excellent day for taking about home and family related matters. Such as: moving in together, meeting the parents, starting a family, buying a place or working out a custody arrangement. Even if you’re single this is a positive day for any home-related change.
Break out the mistletoe, because lusty, assertive Mars enters your seventh house of commitment on the 19th, its first visit there in two years! Many Virgos could get engaged for the holidays or make a decision to solidify their relationship, However…and this is an interesting twist…Mercury retrogrades the same day (dammit!) in your fifth house of romance.
What’s a Virgo to do? Well, before you say, “I do”, make sure that you’ve resolved any outstanding matters that could creep back into your romance down the road, possibly creating waves. Mercury retrograde can actually be your ally right now as it ensures that the two of you will get everything out in the open, and that includes you married folks. Issues like having another baby, problems with your in-laws, when you both are going to retire—all of these are open for discussion. Singles could meet a keeper, possibly someone from their past, as Mercury retrograde is (in)famous for taking a backward glance.
But is that a good thing? All Virgos, single or committed, need to be aware that an ex may slither out from underneath their rock over the next few weeks, something that may not be welcome. Forewarned is forearmed, however, so get out your snake repellent.
When the Sun moves into your fifth house of fun, frolic and amour on the 21st it kicks off a highly romantic phase, although there could be a bit of confusion with Mercury in a backward spin. However, Christmas Eve and the entire week afterward is superb for making progress in love. With Venus in Aquarius you’ll be yearning for stability, and talks can go exceedingly well with a spouse or a new person you’re dating every single day from Christmas through New Year’s.
A new moon in your romance sector on the 29th bodes well for enjoying more quality time with a lover, conceiving a baby, meeting a new honey and moving in together. Uranus goes direct the same day in your house of deep emotional bonding, ending a period of ups and downs in which you may have been unsure as to what a lover was thinking or feeling.
But December won’t be all about stolen kisses and looks of love. Career matters will come to a head on the 13th as a full moon in the most ambitious part of your chart asks you to make some major decisions about your next step. As a matter of fact, all of your key goals will be under a microscope, from health to finances to family matters. The good news is that Saturn is close by, lending its stability and rational thought to your decision making process. Your income—or lack thereof—may be an issue at this lunation as Jupiter opposes Uranus.
Perhaps you’ve been hit recently with unexpected expenses, or you’re not happy with the amount of money you’re earning. If that’s the case you’re in an awesome spot to find ways to earn more, and with the Moon trining Jupiter a raise may be easier to land than you may expect. Whatever you do, don’t settle. From the looks of it you could score a higher income but not necessarily better perks, such as health insurance or a good retirement plan. Keep this in mind before you make a major decision. Believe it or not, Christmas could be a highly productive time for you in business, so don’t assume that everyone’s on vacation and that you should wait a few weeks to make inquiries.
New Year’s Eve brings a sizzling conjunction of sexy Mars and amorous Neptune, in your house of commitment no less! This could be an extraordinarily hot smokin’ evening, but make sure that you don’t let negative emotions, such as jealousy or mistrust, get in your way. Single Virgos, don’t stay home—the cosmos is trying to find you a keeper!
