LIBRA (September 23–October 23)
The opposition of Venus to Retrograde Mars in Gemini and sextile to Saturn on December 1 brings you a huge step closer to maturely acknowledging your needs without shame or artifice. Though you have a secret horror of the not-so-pretty parts of hard, cold reality, the square of Venus to Neptune December 4 allows you to see beauty in otherwise bleak circumstances.
Practicality presides over passion when Venus enters Capricorn and squares Jupiter December 9; you're looking for a life-partner, not a drive-by encounter. Don't compromise your uniqueness for the sake of harmony when Venus trines Uranus December 22.
