Get ready, Gemini -- you're about to enter one of the most potent cycles for relationships. You'll start the month with a Full Moon in your sign on December 6, making you painfully aware of what you need most in a relationship. Are your current emotional needs being met by your mate? Are you afraid to reveal your deeper self to him or her? These are questions that might come up around Full Moon time, and your level of awareness will help you gain a helpful perspective on what you most require for emotional fulfillment.

The headline news for you in terms of love and partnership, however, occurs on December 23. On this day, Saturn, the planet of limitation -- but also commitment -- will enter your 7th House of Relationships for the first time in nearly 29 years. With the exception of a few short weeks in 2015, Saturn will remain in this part of your chart until December 2017. So, what does this mean for you and your love life?
If single, you'll feel a much stronger urge to partner up with someone long term. You might feel attracted to someone older, more mature or more responsible now, because Saturn rules these types of traits. You want to be in a relationship that has substance -- one you know can endure the test of time.
As such, you'll find that if you've been casually dating someone or enjoying a "friends with benefits" scenario, this may no longer work for you. If you love the person you're with, you might push for a commitment now. If he or she is on the same page as you and can see a future together, you may very well be on your way down the aisle. If, however, you can't seem to create anything solid between you, then you'll know it's time to move on.
If you're married or already in a committed relationship when Saturn moves into your 7th house, then you and your mate will need to assess your union realistically. If there are any weak areas you've tried to sweep under the rug, Saturn will expose them and force you to work through them, or pay the price.
In the end, however, this transit has the potential to open you up to the most substantial and reliable relationship possible. You want to know that whomever you're with is someone you can count on. Because in the end, that's exactly what you deserve.
