December 2011 Virgo Love Horoscope

Making improvements

It doesn't take long for relationship issues to come up in important ways this month. On Dec. 1 Venus, the planet of love and attraction, joins powerful Pluto to intensify your feelings. This union occurs in your 5th House of Romance, which can raise the stakes in the game of love. You might be passionate with desire and express emotions with uncommon strength. But you could also dive into the depths of self-doubt as jealousy or rejection lowers your self-esteem. There is, fortunately, a way to work with this, rather than accepting fate's hand. Be prepared to change how you look as well as your values and expectations in matters of the heart. Holding on to the past is the least desirable way to go, even if it's understandable to avoid openly expressing yourself. Still, you have the capacity to transform how you approach others to make yourself more appealing to them. Of course, you have to be honest with yourself since integrity and truth are among your best qualities.

The Full Moon on Dec. 10 can be another significant period because it's also a Lunar Eclipse. Aggressive Mars in Virgo forms challenging right angles to the Sun and Moon that can easily trigger conflict. Try not to get hung up about little things than can undermine a partnership. If you have any issues, constructive criticism is a positive way to deal with them, rather than simply pointing out problems without suggesting reasonable solutions. On Dec.22 the Sun enters Capricorn and your 5th House of Romance, which encourages you to be the initiator in personal matters.
