You often march to the beat of a different drum when it comes to relationships. The need for breathing space and stimulation could trigger issues for you this month due to some contrasting planetary patterns. The adventurous Sagittarius New Moon favors the freedom side of your personality on December 2. It lands in your 11th House of Friends and Groups where it can kick up fresh connections with colleagues, through an organization or when working for a cause.
Sharing enthusiasm for an ideal or belief could make a person seem very desirable to you and vice versa. However, there may be unexpected turns on the road to romance this month as amorous Venus is slowing down in Capricorn before turning retrograde on the December 21. Her six-week reversal in this down-to-earth sign is a reminder that practical matters cannot be excluded from emotional ones now.
Making sure that you're clear about your intentions is a must if you want to avoid misunderstandings. Going the extra mile to examine your expectations and making adjustments to get along with someone else is necessary with Venus in your 12th House of Secrets. She will stay there until March 5, 2014, requiring a more mature approach to matters of the heart.
It can take more effort to get attention as well, especially during the 30-day period that begins when the Sun enters Capricorn and your 12th House of Spirituality on December 21. Happily, being a supportive friend and asking for the advice of a trusted individual can turn a potentially frustrating time into a deeply insightful one of personal growth and self-awareness.
