Get prepared for a whirlwind of a month, Virgo, especially when it comes to sex and love. Mercury, your ruling planet, spends the first 6 days retrograde in your communication sector, making it a bit challenging to fully get your point across when it comes to your sexual and romantic needs. The reason why you’re often mistakenly labeled as a prude is because you actually have such high standards and sexual desires that you don’t even know where to begin. If the setting and overall energy of the environment doesn’t feel right, you won’t want to engage in the act of sex, or you just won’t feel as turned on and into it as you potentially could. You’re the sign of the zodiac that pays most attention to detail, and you want to feel like both you and your partner(s) have taken the time to cultivate a setting and vibe that will help you both break out of your shells and have amazing sex. But with Mercury being retrograde these past 3 weeks, you may have felt a bit underwhelmed sexually due to all the distractions going on around and within you. Life felt more chaotic and messy than usual, and you may have placed having consistent sex on the back burner, or put it off altogether.
Luckily, the Sagittarius New Moon on the 7th of December takes place one day after Mercury goes direct, and this catapults you into a whole new way of thinking about your sex life. Instead of letting your insecurities consume you, take time between the 7th and 17th of December to soak up the New Moon magic and remind yourself how lucky people are to be able to merge with you in any way. If you’re single and seeking a romantic and sexual partner who just “gets” you without judging you or making you feel inadequate, take time during the New Moon window to write down specific intentions for what that would look like. The ideal candidate will get to see your inner freak when you do let down your guard and eventually let them into your bedroom. It may take up to six months to manifest the lover and sexual partner of your dreams, but this is the time to plant those seeds.
If you’re in a relationship, the Sagittarius New Moon will help you lighten up and release expectations that you may have been holding too deeply onto. All that pressure may have previously caused friction or drama in your union, so use the Sag New Moon to establish a new normal in your partnership. Be open to discussing your fears, inhibitions, triggers, secret longings, turn-ons, desires and fantasies when it comes to sex and intimacy. Sagittarius energy is bold, upfront and in your face. As a Virgo, you’re often much more modest and reserved. But this New Moon — combined with Mercury, your ruling planet, entering Sagittarius on the 12th — will boost your self-esteem and help you spill the beans when it comes to what it takes for you to feel sexually fulfilled. Be sure to listen to your partner’s needs too — it goes both ways.
Mars, the Planet of Action, spends all month long in Pisces, activating your partnership and marriage sector. If you’ve been in a long-term relationship with someone, you may end up having discussions of “what’s next”, or you may even end up getting engaged or married this month. Discussions of moving in together are also a high possibility. But before any huge decisions, take time to intuitively assess the quality of your sex life. You’ll want to feel happy with how things are going before committing to anything more serious. If you’ve felt bored in bed, or you haven’t been as present as you could be, you’ll want to use the energy of Mars in Pisces to get to the root of why there’s resistance when it comes to your sexual exploration. Are you truly turned on by your partner(s) or are you just going through the motions?. Is there someone else on your mind, and you’re allowing shame or guilt to cause you to deny or suppress those desires? Or have you pushed away true intimacy and sexually explosive experiences because of fears of the relationship not panning out in the way that you hoped? Only you know what the potential blockages and limiting beliefs may be, and it’ll be essential for you to do the work when it comes to revealing those roadblocks to all parties involved. While they may not be able to address them as honestly on the first try, they’ll be inspired by your ability to get to the root of the situation in order to make room for the sex life you deserve.
By the time Capricorn Season begins on the 21st, followed by the Cancer Full Moon on the 22nd, you’ll be in a completely different headspace, Virgo. Your social network and friendship sector is activated by the Sun in Capricorn, so if you’re single and haven’t had sex in a while, look out for an electrifying connection that comes from within your inner circle. One possibility is that a long-term friend that you’ve had a secret crush on will reveal their intentions, and you could end the year having such wild and irresistible sexual encounters that you end up dreaming about it for months to come. Or you may simply be doing your own thing and end up meeting someone through a close friend. Even if you attempt to take things slow, the blend of the holiday cheer, Venus in Scorpio and Mars in Pisces will make you extra sexy and attractive. Don’t rule out the possibility of getting lost in the moment and just doing it, particularly during the final ten days of the year. If it feels right, then indulge in safe sex with the person who takes your breath away. It may very well turn into a long-term sexual and romantic relationship that you explore throughout 2019 and beyond.
