December Love Planets

December 2011 is a hot month for love if you are revisiting your affection for your long-term partner or feel like going out with an old flame for a year-end fling. Mercury’s retrograde pattern makes most of the month a time to avoid new starts in all affairs, including love affairs! The little planet of communication straightens out near month’s end in time for some zodiac signs to see a favorable matchup with a new romance interest.

Every zodiac sign has a planetary ruler. Love is favored on some days more than others. These special days tend to be when there is harmony to your ruling planet from Venus (the planet of love), the Moon (ruler of our emotional nature) and when there is harmony to a planet in your zodiac sign. Read below for your sign and prepare to break out the incense, wine and candles on the dates that December’s love planets are working for you.

  • Aries March 21 – April 19

    Mars, your sign’s ruling planet, is in Virgo all month long. This is a relaxed place for passion. Instead of being intent on pursuing a partnership, wait around until something comes your way. December 16 and 17 are the days that make you look good. Luckily that is a Friday and a Saturday!

  • Taurus April 20 – May 20

    Your ruling planet happens to be the planet of love, Venus! This planet is in Capricorn until December 20. This is a great time to make the move on the one you want, especially in the last few days before Venus switches signs into Aquarius. December 18 and 19 are potent in passion.

  • Gemini May 21 – June 21

    Your crazy ruling planet Mercury is acting up again for most of the month. It is retrograde until December 13 and not moving at a normal speed until after December 20. A fling with an ex might make you miss more than one holiday party but by Christmas Eve you are a free agent for the future.

  • Cancer June 22 – July 22

    The two days after Christmas, December 26 and 27, are primed for passion with the planet of love meeting up with your astrological ruler: the Moon. While Full Moons usually are a great time for the Crab, December 10 sees a lunar eclipse stunt your romantic ambition until after Christmas.

  • Leo July 23 – August 22

    The lunar eclipse on December 10 saps your mojo in a big way, as it involves a challenge to the sun, the astrological ruler of your zodiac sign. Earth’s shadow being cast across from you might create some suspicion and paranoia. December 28 sees a love interest renewal in your favor.

  • Virgo August 23 – September 22

    Another zodiac sign ruled by wild and crazy Mercury, Virgo is adversely affected in beginning new love affairs. After December 20, you come out of your shell and can wow them at some holiday functions. Christmas Eve and Christmas Day sees the extended family bringing a love recruit along for you.

  • Libra September 23 – October 22

    Your Venus ruler is tense with your sign for most of the month as it moves through Capricorn. The sign of the Goat is not the best placement for Libra. However, biding your time by getting ready for the holidays allows you to produce a New Year’s Eve on behalf of the one you love.

  • Scorpio October 23 – November 21

    Scorpio’s ancient ruler is Mars and the red planet’s visit to Virgo throughout December is a blessing and a curse for your sign. The good news is that a high profile lover is coming your way. The bad news is that privacy might be in short supply. The Moon is in your sign during the December 21 Solstice, a powerful indicator of long-term love.

  • Sagittarius November 22 – December 21

    The Moon is in your zodiac sign on December 22 and 23. While everyone is doing some last minute shopping, you can be trying on a new lover for size. December 5 and 6 see the Moon near your Jupiter ruler, doubling your December love. Jupiter ends a retrograde on Christmas Day, giving you some year-end possibilities as well!

  • Capricorn December 22 – January 19

    There is a New Moon in your sign on Christmas Eve that signals something quite intense. An early birthday present might be something you unwrap somewhere besides under the tree. If December 1 doesn’t rock your world, December 24 and 25 will ring your bells. December 19 sees your Saturn ruler get plenty of love, which should trickle on down to you.

  • Aquarius January 20 – February 18

    When Venus enters your zodiac sign on December 20, a chain reaction passion emerges, and it is headed your way. On that day or Wednesday, December 21, Venus harmonizes with your ruling planet, Uranus. This makes you an intense, irresistible attraction. You are the December favorite to have a life-altering love affair!

  • Pisces February 19 – March 20

    The Moon visits your zodiac sign twice this month and also lines up with your ruling planet, Neptune, two times as well. On December 1 and 2 as well as December 28-30 you can send out your love desires like a mysterious smoke for the man of your dreams to inhale. Watch as he floats your way, and ring in the New Year together, perhaps forever.
