Upcoming Transits to Pay Attention To
When it comes to finding love, Venus is the planet to pay attention to because it is the planet of beauty and love. And this month, there are a few Venus transits that will allow you to find love of your own!
Venus & Neptune
On December 5th, 2020, Venus is in a positive aspect to Neptune, the dreamy planet of compassion and intuition.
This transit encourages you to fantasize about what your ideal lover would be like, which is a perfect visualization for attracting that person into your life. This is the day to manifest your ideal partner!
Venus & Pluto
On December 14th, 2020, Venus is in a pleasant aspect with Jupiter, the planet of expansion, and good fortune.
This transit indicates both good luck and romantic vibes. This might be a day of surprise encounters or chance meetings! Make sure you’re prepared and receptive to what the Universe may bring your way today.
Venus & Saturn
Finally, on December 15th, 2020, Venus is playing peacefully with Saturn, the karma planet.
New relationships may blossom today, especially if the two of you share a karmic connection. Soul mates are those with whom we have a history of past-life connections, so romantic feelings you experience with someone today would be a great indication that you two are meant to be.
While romance can flourish on any day, these are days that will be dripping with celestial, whimsical energy that you should take advantage of if you’re looking for your soul mate this Christmas!
How to Attract Your Holiday Soul Mate
No matter what or how you celebrate, there are ways that you can begin attracting your soul mate now. Let’s take a look at the most important things you should be doing now if you want to attract them by the holidays!
Make a Manifestation Board
One of the most powerful tools of manifestation is the vision board.
The concept is simple enough: Take a poster board and cover with images and phrases representing what you want to manifest into your life. Looking at the board each day helps the visions stay imprinted in your mind, making your intentions even more potent and powerful.
Another bonus of the vision board is that it gets your creative juices flowing, and when your creativity is flowing, the creativity of the Universe picks up speed as well. Self-expression is an important part of manifestation – being able to say what you want out of life. And creative self-expression allows you to play with the tools you already have.
Throw in a splash of red to represent the romance you desire. Sprinkle flakes of gold glitter to represent the wealth and abundance you want to attract. The sky is the limit, and the dreams are yours to create.

Look for Coincidences
While we use the word coincidence here, there really isn’t such a thing as a coincidence – everything that happens in the Universe happens for a reason. But you may start to notice certain signs and synchronicities when your soul mate is just around the corner, waiting to meet you.
For instance, if a large number of your friends or family begin suggesting that you try a certain new take-out place or you keep running into the same cute hunk on your morning coffee run, pay attention. There may be a lesson in there for you or someone you’re meant to meet and interact with.
While we’re spending more time than ever indoors and separated from people, that doesn’t meet that meeting your soul mate is impossible right now. You might even meet them in an online chat room or on a forum for a certain interest or hobby.
So, if you’ve been drawn to a new hobby or activity, take that as a sign to go for it!
Incubate Your Dreams
You might think that your nightly dreams are random or that there’s no controlling them. But with some effort and a little bit of time, you can actually plant dreams into your subconscious. And when you dream about your deepest desires, you’re projecting those desires into the astral realm and amplifying the effect of your manifestations.
The more relaxed you are before bedtime, the better your results will be. That means avoiding caffeine, alcohol, or screen time before you settle in for the night. Try having a nice, relaxing bath or shower with lavender essential oil to promote deep, restful sleep.
Before you close your eyes for the night, you might open your journal and write about what you want to dream. Write about how you want to meet your soul mate, where you want to be, and what you want your surroundings to look like.
Do you meet them at a carousel, watching the spinning horses on their golden beams? Do your eyes meet across the train station on a cold, winter morning?
Imagine how you feel when you meet them.
Do butterflies start flittering about in your stomach? Does your heart thump hard and loud? Do you have to stop and catch your breath?
Write down words and phrases like, “I want to meet my soul mate.” “I want to dream about meeting my great love.” You can also do little things to remind yourself of your intentions. For instance, try writing the word “remember” on a sticky note and placing it on the glass of water on your bedside table to help you remember your dreams when you wake up.
You can also use that same journal to write your dreams down as soon as you wake up to forget them. Bringing your desires into your dreamscape will help solidify your intentions within the Universe.
Hold Out for What You Really Want
You are a fantastic person who is deserving of the exact love they seek, so this is not the time to think about settling, even for a second. Even if you feel lonelier than you ever have, this is not the time to go for relationships that don’t fill you with a sense of excitement, passion, and wonder.
Hold strong to your desires and keep your eye on the prize. When you practice patience and refuse to settle for less than what you really want, you can be sure that any relationships that form right now are based on an actual spark and not just the holiday blues.
Keep that image in your mind of the perfect romance, the lover or partner that makes you feel comfortable, secure, in love, happy, silly, and head over heels all at the same time.
It’s also a good idea to take this time to focus on yourself and your surroundings, taking care of your health and self-care needs. Make sure that you’re in the healthiest, most grounded place ever so that you can accept the love flowing into your life with open arms.
Preparing to meet your soul mate takes time and patience, but it’s important to stay strong right now. Hold to your most genuine desires, and don’t settle for anything less.
Try Something New
People often get stuck in certain ruts, especially when we feel bored or lonely. It’s easy to order the same Chinese takeout and watch your favorite TV show for the fifth night in a row when you feel like there’s nothing better to do.
But you’ll likely never meet your soul mate sitting on your couch and watching TV, so this is the time to try something new.
While we can’t be as adventurous and connected as we usually are this year, there are still ways to try new things safely, opening your eyes to new possibilities and opportunities. And while you won’t meet your future love watching TV, you may be able to swing meeting them from the comfort of your couch.
Many people have turned to online dating this year, especially due to the global health pandemic we’ve been facing. With the advent of online dating applications, you can get to know someone from the safety and comfort of your own home.
If you haven’t tried online dating before, we understand that it may feel scary or intimidating, but there’s really nothing to it. Post a few of your favorite pictures of yourself, write something snappy and interesting in your bio, and start talking to potential matches!
If you hit it off with someone, you can discuss how you’d like to move forward safely with the dating process.
The point is, trying something new like online dating might be exactly what you need to boost your confidence and bring you that much closer to your soul mate!
Make Room for Love to Come
Even when you’ve met your soul mate, it may be hard to recognize that if you’re clinging to the past or bogged down by baggage left over from your last relationship. It’s time to clear the negativity and make room for the new love to enter your life!
Declutter your home, making sure to rid yourself of any trinkets or t-shirts left over by your ex. Cleanse your space with sage and incense, crystals and candles, to infuse your home with positivity and openness and let the negativity of the past fade away.
Write in your journal to clear your thoughts and encourage yourself to heal from past tension or heartaches. It’s important to move on from those who have let you down in the past to make sure that you aren’t bringing those heavy emotions into any future relationships just around the corner.
Remind yourself that you are strong and independent, and while you don’t need anyone by your side, you’re ready to open up and let love come into your sphere.
Welcome Love With the Holiday Season!
The holidays can be even more exciting and enjoyable with a lover by your side, so it’s no wonder that we all feel a stronger push to meet our soul mates during this time. But try to remember that you are enough on your own, and you can have a wonderful time this Christmas season with friends and family!
Keep these special dates and tips in mind to begin attracting your soul mate into your life. At the end of Christmas day, however, make sure to be grateful for yourself. After all, you’re the best gift you’ve ever received!
