The 3 Zodiac Signs Who Need A Break From Love During Mercury Trine Uranus On December 17, 2022

It's December 17, 2022 and we're tired. Yes, that's right. We are pooped. It's been a long year, and we've all gone through a lot. We are tapped mentally, emotionally and physically.

Something's gotta give, as they say because we do not have a good time finding any relief here. And now that the holidays are upon us, it's time to let those stress banners fly high in the sky. "We are tired!" "We need some downtime, please!"

Here's the thing about being tired: it also spills over onto our love lives. That doesn't ordinarily go over well, as both parties tend to become insulted by the idea of their partners needing a break from love.

A break from love? How could it be? Well, it could be, friends, and on December 17, during the Mercury trine Uranus transit, we will want to sleep more than we want love and affection. Yes, it's that bad.

The fun part is that just because we want a break from love doesn't automatically mean we'll get one. Nor does it mean that our loved ones will understand our request for a short, teensy-weensy, wee little break.

What makes this day a pain in the neck is that we aren't trying to offend anyone; we want one day in December when we're not about to explode with stress and the expectations put upon us. The worst part? We will express this need to the person we need most to understand us, and they will likely not. Oy!

The three zodiac signs who need a break from love during Mercury trine Uranus on December 17, 2022:

1. Taurus

(April 20 - May 20)

It's OK, you want a break from love, and if you don't get it, you'll probably sink into bed and sleep for three days straight. You feel like you have the most incredible love life of 'em all.

You and your partner understand each other; you can read each other's minds, and so you had better hope that they get with your program on December 17, during Mercury trine Uranus, as your unspoken feelings are those of needing to be left alone, to think, to process, and to sleep.

You trust in your partner, and they'll live to tell you this isn't some grand break-up. What this is, is you need time to yourself for no good reasons other than to BE. You need some undefined-by-a-relationship time to yourself, and because you DO have that fantastic partner, they will understand your needs and grant you your request for a break.

2. Sagittarius

(November 22 - December 21)

When you need a break in love, you need your own space and private time. You are not the 'double dutch' person who enjoys going out with other couples. No, you are a one-on-one person who can only enjoy an outing if there's only one other. And, should you want to get together with a close friend who is NOT your lover, then that get-together has to happen privately — your partner will not be invited along.

This is you, and it's always been you. Today, during Mercury trine Uranus, you'll feel that natural inclination all the more, and you will demand your loved one the space to be away from them. It's not personal, and you have no reason to be away from them other than that this is who you are. You are the person who needs a break from love. Take it or leave it.

3. Capricorn

(December 22 - January 19)

You'll be doing a little of that Capricorn 'explaining' today, as you need to convey an exceptional message to your romantic partner. Today's message is: "I need my space; please leave me alone." You aren't trying to be mean, nor are you trying to shut them out. You cannot stand another day of stress, and the only way you see getting out of it is by demanding time for yourself.

You need a break from love and all that comes with it, as it never really comes alone, does it? There's always drama or a personality clash of some sort. The idea of drama makes you want to fling yourself off a mountain, so you walk away from it instead of BEING the drama. You'll do fine today, Capricorn. Your partner, on the other hand, will be a shaky, dramatic, hot mess.
