Happy December, Scorpio. Are you ready to say goodbye to 2022, or do loose ends need tying up? Last month, one of your ruling planets, warrior Mars, went retrograde. When Mars is retrograde, you may feel a bit sluggish and more interested in Venusian activities, such as lovemaking and snuggles, rather than fiery sex, heated debates, and other Martian expressions, as it is the planet of f*cking and fighting. Because Mars is one of your ruling planets (the other is Pluto, ruler of the underworld), you are affected by this retrograde more than others, and there’s only one way to survive it: lean in. When the sky goes bright with a full moon in flirty Gemini on Wednesday, December 7, treat yourself to sensual activities other than sex, such as glam time playing with holiday makeup looks, a bath ritual, or a massage

As you probably know, many people associate Scorpios with sex. While most Scorpios delight in this risque reputation, even Scorpios can get nervous or uncomfortable discussing pleasure, fantasy, and what turns them on. The stars align this month to help you with that. First up, before the aforementioned full moon, the communication planet Mercury enters Capricorn on Tuesday, December 6, lighting up your 3rd House of Communication, creating accessible and non-judgemental communication in all areas of your life. Then, on Friday, December 9, Venus also enters Capricorn and your 3rd House of Communication. 

Mars may be retrograde, but romantic Venus is so powerful that with her on your side, you should feel confident to discuss love and sex, and of course, the two are often inherently intertwined. You don’t need an official end-of-the-year bucket list or New Year’s resolution, but this is an epic time to enjoy any sexual fantasies you’ve kept on the back burner. With Mercury and Venus in your corner, discussing desires with partners comes easily, but remember, you can feel satisfied sexually all by yourself. Sometimes, when it comes to kink, BDSM, or whatever you’re into, the most challenging part is admitting your desires to yourself, Scorpio. (FYI, did everyone hear that sex toys are available at Ulta now? Perhaps treat yourself to the gift of orgasms and a new skin-care routine this holiday season.)
