The holiday season can be such a happy time of year, but it can be full of a lot of heartache, too. The expectation that we're supposed to be carefree and celebrating with loved ones adds so much pressure if we're already feeling a lack love or are struggling in a relationship. But this festive month is also a time when many happy lovers will meet their sweetheart's family for the first time, get engaged, or even married. So, what type of love energy is in the cards for YOU this December? Look up your zodiac sign below to find out!
JUMP TO YOUR SIGN:
Aries Love Tarot Reading
Tarot Card for December: Eight of Swords
You may not be feeling so festive as you process what's been happening to your heart this year -- or what hasn't been happening. The Eight of Swords implies you are stuck in a negative cycle in love, but there's a secret message to this card that's actually positive: The Swords suit is connected to the mind, which implies that this negativity is happening more in your head than in real life. This doesn't mean you haven't experienced some truly difficult feelings or circumstances, it just means that, with a shift in your thinking, you'll be able to see that you aren't trapped and you aren't helpless. Perspective is key here -- negativity attracts more negativity, but a positive mindset can break the cycle.
Eight of Swords love powers: perspective, control, breaking free
Aries love mantra for December: "I will not be a victim of my own thoughts and fears."
Taurus Love Tarot Reading
Tarot Card for December: Three of Pentacles
The Three of Pentacles is a card of collaboration and learning. Making a partnership last takes more than just romance -- it takes effort and teamwork, and that's what the Three of Pentacles is about. This month you and your partner may be working on a project together. This card sends an obvious message that if you listen to each other, remain flexible, and play to each other's strengths, not only will your project find success but your relationship's bond will strengthen as well. If one of you tries to squash the other's ideas or thinks they can do things better on their own, nothing will come together in the end. Don't let your ego get in the way.
Three of Pentacles love powers: teamwork, building, listening
Taurus love mantra for December: "Together we can do more than I can do alone."
Gemini Love Tarot Reading
Tarot Card for December: Death
Don't freak out -- the Death card doesn't automatically mean the death of a loved one or a relationship. The Death card is about change. As we near the end of the year, it makes sense that you take stock of where you are in your relationship or dating life and compare that to where you wish to be. If you're stuck in a relationship that's not going where you want it to go, then maybe this relationship does need to end in order for something new to grow. But it doesn't have to be that extreme -- it could be the death of a negative mindset or an unhealthy habit which will help kick off a new, happier phase in your love life. Decide what needs to end this month so you can start the new year with a light and hopeful heart.
Death love powers: endings, change, release
Gemini love mantra for December: "One door must close so that many may open."
Cancer Love Tarot Reading
Tarot Card for December: The Hanged Man
As your love card for December, The Hanged Man signifies a standstill is happening in your romantic situation. This temporary halt may come from outside circumstances, like a separation instigated by your partner, but it could very well be you who puts on the brakes. You need some time to assess your love situation and the direction it's going, and you can't do that when you're completely immersed in it. This doesn't mean you have to end a relationship or retreat into total solitude, but you do need to create some extra time and space to see your situation from an outside perspective.
The Hanged Man love powers: contemplation, pause, direction
Cancer love mantra for December: "The truth will only come if I am open to receive it."
