Matters of the heart will be your focus for most of the month, starting with a Full Moon in your 5th House of Romance on December 6. If you recently started to date someone, now you'll have complete awareness about how you really feel about this person. If you're falling head-over-heels in love, this will be the time you let your sweetheart know. If, on the other hand, you realize that this is merely a casual affair with no lasting potential, you'll make a decision about how comfortable you are with the situation.
In some cases, you might find yourself in the midst of a secret love affair, or you might struggle with feelings for someone you know you can't be with. Venus moves into your private 12th House of Seclusion on December 10, and remains there until January 3. If you're in a situation of loving a person only from afar, ask yourself why you're not open to dating someone with whom you can have a true, physical relationship with. Of course, if you're in a relationship and things are going well, this phase might simply be a time you and your love want extra privacy together. In that case, enjoy it!
Saturn moves into your 11th House of Groups and Friendships on December 23. From then until December 2017, you'll be more discerning about the company you keep. You'd rather have fewer friends and know that they are the real deal than many acquaintances you have no true bond with.
