Monthly Love Horoscopes - December 2017
There is a historical event this month that is set to change everything, and that is Mars' departure from your relationship sector on the 9th December. This isn't just Mars wrapping up his last visit until 2019, but bringing all planetary activity on the relationship front to an end. This is the end of an era and an end to the pressure on both you and your relationships since Jupiter first returned in September 2016. It was that on again, off again tension between planets fighting for your relationship needs and Uranus and Eris defending your own needs that is coming to an end. But in the process, this leaves you with an authentic sense of what you want from your relationships and what they need from you. The turnaround begins before Mars leaves, with the potential for a breakthrough in the early days of the month. This is thanks in part to Mars' opposition with Uranus on the 1st December, which is the last hurdle to cross. This might see the month start with personal and/or relationship tension still running high, but a Full Moon in your communication sector on the 4th December will very quickly turn this into an opportunity for a communication and/or relationship breakthrough. Each day that passes will see Mars and Uranus move further apart and any tensions drop back, before his departure on the 9th December pulls the plug. This is when you will start to enjoy the benefits. In the meantime, with less focus on your relationships, there is more a chance for romantic matters to blossom. This allows you to take advantage of the doors open to the past and second chances and to an opportunity for a do over, from the 17th December.
While Venus will leave your relationship sector on the 1st December, just to start the month with the planet of love and guardian of your relationships on board is a gift. Held back by a retrograde phase earlier in the year, Venus should have been long gone. Venus might leave in the first 24 hours, but like a bell that can't be unrung, she'll leave you with a clear sense of what you want from your relationships from the get go. If this were the only advantage that you and your relationships have this month, this would still be an advantage. But as Venus leaves, she will leave lucky Jupiter behind and here until November 2018, this is when the real journey begins. With the Sun and Mercury been and gone and with Venus' input, you're able to start that journey with a clear sense of what you want from your relationships and what they need from you. However, the relationship gods still have one more wildcard up their sleeves, with Jupiter spending just eight days on his own before things heat up again. On the 9th December Mars, the planet of passion and the warrior planet of the cosmos returns to your relationship sector, teaming up with Jupiter for the first time since 2006. With Mars not leaving until late January, they will see out the year together and spend the first four weeks of 2018 fighting for what you want and need from your relationships. The Moon will move through your romantic sector from the 9th December to the 11th December, with romantically charged lunar vibes adding to the magic when Mars returns to spice up your relationships.
Ever since Jupiter returned to your romantic sector in September 2016 there has not only been continuous planetary activity but a friendly rivalry between romantic and relationship forces. Even when Jupiter left in early October and things started to become more serious on the relationship front, romantic forces refused to drop back and only became more impassioned from late October. In a massively important month for relationship matters, it is not that romantic matters are getting in the way and more that they finally run their course with perfect timing. Yet until leaving your romantic sector on the 9th December, Mars will be doing his best to fuel your romantic passions and fighting spirit, making sure that the spirit of romance is robust as possible. Mars' aim is to ensure that you can continue without having the love gods on call 24/7. While you want to keep the romantic flame and Mars' romantic passions and fighting spirit alive, this is when the focus really shifts to your relationships. All hands are on deck as you move into the final weeks of a three year relationship boot camp, one that will come to an end when Saturn finally leaves your relationship sector on the 20th December. With the Sun and Mercury, the planet of communication already on board and Venus returning on the 1st December, you have all the resources needed to take Saturn's final weeks seriously. You even have Mercury, the planet of communication in retrograde motion here from the 3rd December to the 23rd December. Mercury is on hand to not only ensure the communication lines are open but the past and unsaid words as well. The Sun, Saturn, and Venus will all be gone by Christmas, with Mercury staying on over the New Year, to keep the communication lines open and the wheels moving.
This is a month where the full implications of what is developing on the romantic front are revealed, but also where there will be a major relationship shift before Christmas. December is a month when all the planetary activity on the romantic front has usually just ended or is just ending for the year, while the Sun will always turn the solar spotlight onto your relationships just before Christmas. This year you can throw away everything you have come to expect from the past, with the love and relationship gods taking you into a whole new era. Venus' departure from your romantic sector on the 1st December should bring all romantic activity for the year to a close. Instead, with lucky Jupiter staying on and Mars arriving on the 9th December to fire up your romantic passions and fighting spirit, this is when the real journey begins. And with Jupiter here until November 2018, it really is then all about the journey. With Mars not leaving until late January, you can expect a romantically charged holiday and New Year. Yet it is what is happening on the relationship front that is stunning, with Saturn returning to your relationship sector on the 20th December, for the first time since 1991. Arriving two days before the Sun's return on the 22nd December and with Venus arriving on Christmas Day, this brings you to the start of a major three year relationship journey. Teaming up with Pluto here for the first time in our lifetime, there is both change and commitment ahead. What kicks off in the days leading up to Christmas will take three years to play out.
This is not only a big month for love and matters of the heart in general, it is a transition month. Since December 2014 Saturn has brought a need to take matters of the heart seriously, but also to take responsibility. Saturn gets us to learn, for his ultimate aim is growth, and for that reason, he is known as the hard taskmaster of the cosmos. With his three year boot came ending on the 20th December, his serious hand at the wheel is coming to an end, yet at the same time, he is giving you the power to move mountains if you have to. Saturn's final weeks are some of the most important, so it is only fitting that he is surrounded by support. Venus' return on the 1st December kicks off what will often be the most romantically charged weeks of any year. Here until Christmas Day, Venus will stay on after Saturn's departure on the 20th December and the Sun's on the 22nd December. The planet of love will also be on hand throughout Mercury's retrograde phase here from the 3rd December to the 23rd December. By the time Venus leaves Mercury will be back in retrograde motion, the Sun and Saturn will be gone and a three year boot camp will be over. But Venus knows that this is not the end of the story. With your luckiest year for love in over a decade starting next November, Venus knows this is just a stepping stone, but closer than that she knows Mars' return later next month will help you capture all the potential created over the last three years. Mercury will stay on over the New Year and not due to leave until the 11th January, will keep things ticking over into 2018.
It is not that the month starts with a false impression of what kind of month to expect and more that this is a month that will under promise and over deliver. In saying that, what it promises at the start is still looking like a good deal. With Neptune in his first full month in direct motion in your relationship sector and Chiron turning direct on the 5th December, the time is turning on the relationship front. Yet, more importantly, it comes with the full support of Venus, in your communication sector until the 1st December and Jupiter, there until November 2018. That support will continue with Mars' return to your communication sector on 9th December. With the Sun always returning to your romantic sector just before Christmas, with things looking good on the relationship front and the promise of romantic developments ahead, no wonder the month starts with your confidence high on both fronts. What you can't see coming is the degree of that romantic shift and just how game changing this will be. It starts with the Moon's return to your romantic sector on the 19th December, and by the time it leaves on the 21st December, everything will have changed. It is with romantically charged lunar vibes in play that Saturn will return to your romantic sector on the 20th December. Last here from 1988 to 1991, Saturn returns to kick off the most powerful three years on the romantic front in decades. Yet teaming up with Pluto, the planet of change and revolution for the first time in our lifetime, the kind of change he has been working towards for years, will finally gain the power to move mountains. The Sun's return on the 22nd December and Venus' on Christmas Day will provide this new romantic chapter with all the support it needs.
There is good news for your relationships this month, though it might not seem so to start with. In fact, with the month starting with Mars and Uranus in retrograde motion, it might feel like anything but good news. What you see is yet another opposition between a planet in Libra and the planets in your relationship sector, with another wave of personal and/or relationship tension. This time is different, with Mars' opposition with Uranus on the 1st December the last. When Mars leaves Libra on the 9th December, this will bring nearly 16 months of planetary activity to a close and in the process will take all the pressure off your relationships. Yet in its wake you're left with a more authentic sense of what you want from your relationships and what they need from you. With your own and your relationship needs no longer in opposition, both sides are free to benefit. However, what will really turn things around is the massive amount of support on the communication front. This includes Venus, the planet of love's return to your communication sector on the 1st December, right in the middle of the final standoff and Mercury, the planet of communication's retrograde turn on the 3rd December, just two days later. With both Uranus and Eris spending their last full month in retrograde motion in your relationship sector, support from communication forces creates the potential for a major breakthrough. With Mercury in retrograde motion until the 23rd December, there will be a three year period where the doors are open to the past and second chances on the communication and relationship fronts. This is a rebuilding month, where you can start to enjoy the benefits of what you've had to fight for.
To move into the month with Venus, the planet of love still in Scorpio is a real gift, for she is usually long gone by now. Held back by a retrograde phase earlier in the year, you get to move into the final month of the year with the planet of love on board. More importantly, with Neptune having turned direct on the romantic front late last month and Chiron turning direct on the 5th December, Venus is on board to make the most of a romantic turnaround and the doors still open to the past and second chances. Venus might leave Scorpio on the 1st December, but she starts the month here, and that is enough to give your heart a clear mandate from the get go. With both planets in your romantic sector continuing to enjoy the support of lucky Jupiter and from Mars, when he returns to Scorpio on the 9th December, there is every reason to trust that your romantic confidence will continue to rise at the same time that the pace and momentum increases. While there is no direct planetary support on the relationship front, there is a lot of indirect support from the communication gods. With communication the key to keeping your relationships on track, they will then benefit from a major shift in communication support just before Christmas. By the time the Moon moves through your relationship sector from 28th December to the 30th December, you'll have a stunning line up of communication support. Not only that, this is support that is here to stay.
While the month starts with a strong sense of romantic nostalgia, it will weaken within the early hours of the month, but will not drop away completely. The month begins with both planets in your romantic sector in retrograde motion, but also with Venus, the planet of love in a nostalgic part of your chart. This is what has strengthened a sense of romantic nostalgia last month, along with a boost in romantic confidence. Venus will leave a nostalgic part of your chart and return to Sagittarius on the 1st December, and that will see some of the romantic nostalgia drop back. With Venus no longer taking your heart on a nostalgic trip down love's memory lane, you're able to start looking to the future. Yet with both Uranus and Eris spending their last full month in retrograde motion in your romantic sector, there will still be a strong sense of romantic nostalgia, and the doors will remain open to the past and second chances. This will see the lines between the past, present and future become even more blurred. While there is focus on matters of the heart all month, it is in the early and final days of the month that your relationships will get their turn. The Moon will move through your relationship sector from the 3rd December to the 5th December, with this visit creating a Full Moon here on the 4th December. The Moon will then come full circle from the 30th December to the 1st January, seeing out 2017 and welcoming in 2018 here. So while there is less focus on your relationships and more on matters of the heart, the Moon is managing to create two important pockets of focus.
With no planetary activity in your romantic or relationship sectors, there is a lot more focus at this time of year on both the Moon and Venus. The Moon because it will always visit both at least once a month and this month your romantic sector will get two visits. The focus will always be on Venus, for regardless of what is or isn't happening on the romantic or relationship fronts, the planet of love has to be somewhere. And in the final month of the year, Venus will spend the majority of the month in a nostalgic part of your chart, taking your heart on a nostalgic trip down love's memory lane from the 1st December until leaving and returning to Capricorn on Christmas Day. Venus will then see out 2017 and welcome in 2018 in Capricorn, with the planet of love singling you out for her full attention. The Moon's two visits to your romantic sector will highlight the two sides of Venus this month. Moving through from the 1st December to the 3rd December, romantically charged lunar vibes will be in play when Venus begins her nostalgic trip down love's memory lane. Yet by the time the Moon moves through again from the 28th December to the 30th December, Venus will be in Capricorn and looking to the future and not the past. The Moon will make its last visit to your relationship sector for the year from the 5th December to the 7th December. While your relationships have less direct support, there is a lot of support from the two planets on the communication front. With communication the key to keeping your relationships on track, your relationships have just what they need.
While neither your romantic nor relationship sectors are dominant areas of your chart this month, what is happening is enough to give both sides what they need. The North Node and Ceres, who have been together in your relationship sector since September, finally aligned late last month and will remain aligned until the 5th December. With Ceres turning retrograde here on the 17th December, the forces that are bringing a lot more depth and a more authentic sense of direction to your relationships, are quietly strengthening their position. With Uranus and Eris spending their last full month in retrograde motion in your communication sector, Ceres' retrograde turn will not only see the doors open to the past and second chances on both fronts but remain open for the rest of the year. This coincides with a sense of romantic nostalgia that will kick in on Christmas Day and continue into the first three weeks of January. Until then, the love gods are saving their focus for a few select pockets. It starts with the Moon's move through your romantic sector from the 3rd December to the 5th December. As well as creating some romantically charged days, this will create a Full Moon on the 4th December. This Lovers Moon is the last Full Moon of 2017 that will allow the love gods to play any final wildcards up their sleeves. However, the love gods have a few more surprises. Apart from Venus' return to a nostalgic part of your chart on Christmas Day, the Moon will come full circle from the Full Moon on the 30th December. This means that you will not only end one year and start the next with a sense of romantic nostalgia in play but with romantically charged lunar vibes on board.
With December such a professionally charged month and even more so than is normally the case, there could be a danger of your love life being squeezed out. Yet while this is something you can't afford to take for granted, romantic forces do have friends in high places, and it might be easier to keep the spirit of romance alive than you think, but in a roundabout way. The month begins with Venus, the planet of love in her final hours in an adventurous part of your chart. While Venus can't follow you into the month, by then she had spent over three weeks bringing the spirit of romance and adventure together. In that time she not only aligned with lucky Jupiter in an adventurous part of your chart, but she enjoyed a special relationship with dreamy Neptune in Pisces. Both have taken Venus' agenda on board, and as both are staying on, the key to keeping the spirit of romance alive is to keep your dreams and the spirit of adventure alive. This will make it easier to not only find a balance between work and play but keep the romantic flame burning. Apart from the Moon's visit to your relationship sector from the 9th December to the 11th September, there is no direct support for your relationships. However, with the Sun, Saturn and Venus all returning to your sector of friendship, teamwork, and networking in the days leading up to Christmas, there will be plenty of support for friendship and relationship building. The love and relationship gods have invested enough throughout the year to leave you with a clear sense of what you want from love and your relationships.
