If you’re wondering who you may smooch under the mistletoe this season… options are aplenty, as the planets move around for what looks to be an action-packed end of 2022.
We begin December with Venus, the planet that rules our love life and desires, and Mars, the planet that rules over conflict and action in direct opposition, says Donna Page, an Atlanta-based professional astrologer with a graduate degree in counseling psychology. This can translate to some serious tiffs if you let it.
“This energy can definitely create arguments, especially quite petty ones,” says Page. “But it’s more about what someone believes is the truth. You know how that goes… but remember, in the long run, does this really matter? Is the bickering worth it?”
So maybe hit backspace before you send that paragraph-long text message to your S.O., and harness the good energy of the month for some introspection, which there’s also plenty of opportunity for, according to Page. Jupiter, the planet of expansion, is in fiery Aries starting on 20th, followed by the winter solstice and Capricorn season on the 21st. And oh yeah, did I mention the new moon is in our favorite worker bee of the zodiac (Cap) on the 23rd as well?
Overall, expect a real pull to return to the people and things you love this month and to take stock of what works and what doesn’t, especially when it comes to romance. What does that mean for your zodiac sign? Page breaks down her December 2022 sex horoscope predictions below:
Aries (March 21–April 19)
Single: Emotions are running high for you, especially around the full moon on the 7th—so, perhaps not the best time to pop out on a first date! Stay home and give yourself some TLC, Aries. By the end of the month, you’ll be looking to expand and examine your legacy, so save your energy for any flirting when you’re in a better head space.
In a relationship: With the planet of expansion, Jupiter, moving into your sign on the 20th, when it comes to your sex horoscope: your long-term legacy is top of mind. And, of course, that could lead to some impactful conversations with your S.O. Take the time to learn about their plans for the future, and whether they align with yours.
Taurus (April 20–May 20)
Single: Keep your eyes open, Taurus, because there are plenty of opportunities for a winter fling in front of you. Get clear on who you’re looking for and what obstacles you might be putting in your own way. When you clear your mind, you never know who may pop into your orbit!
In a relationship: Prepare for a lot of push and pull at the beginning of this month. You may examine the balance of power within your partnership and whether you are getting what you need from your S.O. and vice versa. Don’t be afraid to have tough conversations. The insight, and the makeup sex, will be worth it! By the end of the month, you and your boo will be vibing as you head off into productive Cap season.
Gemini (May 21–June 20)
Single: When Venus moves into Capricorn on the 10th, your sex horoscope says you may find yourself craving intimacy, Gemini. The question is, how can you get to a place where you’re comfortably vulnerable? Take the time to journal, and see what is on your mind right now. If it feels right, share your innermost thoughts with the people you love. You never know what special someone might be paying close attention.
In a relationship: It’s possible you’re not feeling really seen and heard by your partner, which can cause all sorts of problems. Now, armed with Mars and the Moon in your sign, it’s time to tackle this ish. Let it all out, and tell your partner how you feel. You’ll enter Capricorn season (and that pesky Mercury retrograde) in better alignment if you do.
Cancer (June 21–July 22)
Single: If you know who you are and where you are going, it won’t be difficult to find someone, Cancer. So get clear on your goals and identity! With Capricorn season (and your half-birthday) upon us, now is the perfect time for reflection. Push aside the old patterns, and you will be rewarded! Just keep your eyes open… the person you are looking for might be right in your usual coffee shop.
In a relationship: You and your S.O. are straight vibing at the beginning of the month, and you can thank Venus in Sagittarius for that. The two of you are improving things around the house right and left and just running through your to-do list, which is awesome. Take the second half of the month to enjoy your hard work! Life, like most other things, ebbs and flows.
Leo (July 23–August 22)
Single: Venus is in your house of romance for the first third of the month, so take advantage of your good love energy! Throw on your Freekum dress and your favorite party shoes, Leo, because you are feeling more social and attractive than ever. By the time Venus moves into Capricorn on the 21st, you may feel like settling down… so keep your eyes open for those potential suitors.
In a relationship: There is no better time for you and your boo to get dressed up and hit the town! With Venus, the planet that rules love, in your house of romance for the first third of the month, you will feel the love and adoration you crave from your partner. Pick a fun restaurant or club, and prepare for an epic date night. Then, by the end of the month, Venus will move into contemplative Capricorn, so expect some deeper convos.
Virgo (August 23–September 22)
Single: Venus, the planet of love, is now in a part of your chart that deals with your personal space. So take some! Don’t be afraid to spend a night (or three) on your own, especially at the beginning of the month. When the sun moves into Capricorn on the 21st, your house of romance will get its time to shine (and that will only be more powerful with the new moon on the 23rd). Do what you love with whom you love, and the rest will fall into place, Virgo.
In a relationship: You may be craving some alone time at the beginning of this month, Virgo, and that is encouraged! Even the best partners need time to recharge. With Venus in a part of your chart that deals with your inner world, you may need some time to process your place in life. Bust out the journal and write about the state of your relationship for a few minutes. If you feel like it, share it with your partner! You may be surprised by the insights you gain.
Libra (September 23–October 22)
Single: The person you’re looking for is closer than you think, Libra. You’re just passing over them. With Venus (your ruling planet) in fiery Sagittarius this month, things are heating up. Take the time to talk to that cute barista or the guy you always see at the dog park. You never know where you may find a meaningful connection!
In a relationship: With the holidays in full swing, it can be tempting to focus on all you have to do. But don’t let your boo fall to the bottom of the list! Carve out some time to hit one of your favorite restaurants, or have a night out at the theater, if you’re feeling extra fancy. It’s important to ensure your partner knows they are valued, even in the hustle and bustle of the holidays.
Scorpio (October 23–November 21)
Single: Your blunt side is showing in this month’s sex horoscope, Scorpio, which isn’t a bad thing! Just, ya know, be aware of it. Take note of how you’re treating the people around you—both your loved ones and strangers. You are under some stress right now, with the full moon bringing up all sorts of money insecurities, but that doesn’t mean you need to push people out. Keep your eyes open to your behavior and for someone special you may be attracted to this month.
In a relationship: The push and pull highlighted in your financial house this month may bleed into your relationship, but you can use this energy to your advantage. Are the finances in your partnership even? Or are you always paying for cocktails, coffee, dinners, and the bills? If it’s the latter, speak up. Oh, and Mercury retrograde on the 28th will make you bold and ready to take on difficult things. So go for it!
Sagittarius (November 22–December 21)
Single: The full moon in Gemini is in your house of partnerships, so definitely keep your eyes peeled, single Sagittarius! The opportunity for love and connection is aplenty. And with Venus in your sign for the first 10 days of the month? You couldn’t ask for a better time to bring a special someone into your life. Get your flirt on, and ask your crush out on a date! It’s time to go after what you want.
In a relationship: You may find yourself examining the different partnerships in your life this month, which makes sense as the full moon highlights this part of your chart. Take some time to review your intimate partnerships, as well. Are you feeling connected to your S.O.? Or is there some strain in the relationship? Make sure to air out any grievances so you can enter the new year on a clean slate!
Capricorn (December 22–January 19)
Single: While you’re running through all of your to-do lists, and making way for your epic birthday celebration, your sex horoscope says keep your mind open to possibilities, Capricorn. Is there someone at work you’ve been passing over because they don’t seem exactly like your type? Maybe give them a closer look. If you want to find love, it’s important to understand who and what you’re looking for. Take the time to do that this month!
In a relationship: You and your partner are in need of an escape this month, Cap, so go for it! Even if you just put your phones on ‘Do Not Disturb’ and cuddle up under your very own blanket fort for the night, you’ll be surprised by how rejuvenated and connected you feel after some QT. Venus, the planet that rules over our love life, enters your sign later this month, so the sweet energy will continue to flow. Enjoy it!
Aquarius (January 20–February 18)
Single: There’s strong party energy for at least the first 20 days of the month, so enjoy it! Get out there in your favorite dress or pantsuit and mix it up, Aquarius. If you’re not big into going out and drinking, take the lead and make a party of your own. Sign up for a salsa class or a paint night. Someone life-changing might pop up!
In a relationship: It’s the end of the year and a great time to reflect, especially for the Aquarius in a relationship. How have things been going with you and your beau this year? If you have the time for it, go on a little couples retreat this month. Look at how things have been going and the balance of power in your relationship. With Mars in fellow air sign (and notorious chatterbox) Gemini, there is no better time to communicate your needs!
Pisces (February 19–March 20)
Single: Venus, which is the sign that rules your love life, is highlighting your house of friendships for most of the month, Pisces. Your sex horoscope says this is a great time to ask your network to fix you up with someone! In a world of endless options online, it can be nice to go on a good old-fashioned blind date. Communication is key, and with the full moon highlighting your house of family, you are feeling very comfortable in your own skin and your standing in life: There’s no better time to go out there and meet a special someone.
In a relationship: Communication is key in any relationship, and with the full moon eclipse highlighting your house of communication, it’s time to have some tough conversations. The holidays are coming up, which can be a little bit stressful, to say the least. So, clear up any lingering issues within your relationship—you and your partner will only come out stronger.
