Jun 21 – Jul 22

You need to plan a trip. It could be a quick road trip with friends or a full-on international cruise, but there's nothing like a vacation to reinvigorate your romantic prospects when you get back. You might even meet a new crush abroad!

If your hermit instinct kicks in on Monday or Tuesday, don't force yourself out of your shell. Your heart may need time to mull something over – even if you have to figure out what it is first. In the middle of the week, you may find your sweetie (or a potential sweetie, or the world at large) irritatingly rational about what's clearly (to you) an emotional issue. Make an effort to detach yourself – at least for a minute – to get a different perspective. Then, from Friday through the weekend, learning and exploring are in order – whom will you study and where will you go in the realm of romance?

When Mercury retrograde reverses into Scorpio’s intense sign on December 1, you become a lot more suspicious of potential lovers. Can you believe anyone’s story or should you do your own research? Cover all your bases.

You’re well aware of the kind of person you’re looking for during the Mars-Neptune conjunction on the seventh, but is it possible you’re being overly optimistic? Finding your soul mate is possible, but the odds that they’re perfect are low. Perfect for you? Maybe. But no one is without faults.

A thrilling sun-Uranus retrograde trine on December 20 puts new possibilities on the table, but you’ll have to come out of your shell to capitalize on them. Now that you know what you want, figure out what you must do to get it!

Communicating is fuzzy during the Mercury-Neptune square on the twenty-fourth, so misunderstandings are a given. Do your best to differentiate between what you wish were true and what’s actually happening.

The moon spends time in balanced Libra from December 28 to December 30, allowing harmony via compromise. You’re already good at taking other people’s feelings into consideration, and this moon phase helps you transition into the new year in a peaceful, harmonious way.
