December 2011 Gemini Love Horoscope

Meeting your needs

December opens with the Sun in your 7th House of Partnerships, which usually increases your chances of connecting with someone new or adding spice to an ongoing alliance. Yet playing fast and loose is not likely to help you fulfill your personal needs. That's because the love planet Venus begins the month in serious Capricorn and your 8th House of Deep Sharing. This is likely to test your commitment to the one you're with or the one you want. If you're single and looking, though, this could attract an individual who may be more into control than having fun. Either way, it's best to know what you want and have a good idea of what you're willing to do to get it. This is especially true on Dec. 1 when alluring Venus joins the dark planet Pluto, which can push you to extremes.

The Full Moon in your sign on Dec. 10 could be an eye-opener. This event is also a Lunar Eclipse, reminding you to stop stretching yourself so thin and to set your personal and professional priorities. Passionate Mars' stressful square to the Sun and Moon could trigger conflict that starts over a petty detail and grows into World War III. Obviously, it's better to avoid getting entangled in an argument unless you're willing to take it all the way.

Happily, Venus enters fellow air sign Aquarius on Dec. 20, which could provide you with more emotional breathing space. Still, don't lose sight of long-term consequences when the Sun moves into responsible Capricorn and your intimate 8th house on Dec. 22.
