Whether they're moving up from casually dating, or even taking their relationship a step further by becoming engaged, there are quite a few zodiac signs who are likely to make things official this holiday season. The winter is a great time for pretty much anyone to get comfy with a partner. With all the holiday plans, traveling, and family time, it makes a lot of sense to take a relationship to the next level, and enjoy it all as a couple.
But when you add in astrological factors, this time of year can be extra commitment-y, particularly for a select group of signs. "Usually certain astrological signs veer toward commitment when there are potent transits to their 7th house," Lisa Barretta, an astrologer and author of Conscious Ink, tells Bustle. "This house rules making the partnership legal," which means they may naturally veer towards commitment.
The planets also play a role when it comes to determining what's next for a zodiac sign and their relationship. "Having good Venus, Mars, and Moon placement in a relationship chart are vital indicators of the love, passion, money, and emotions of a relationship," Barretta says. And that all seems to be the case for the zodiac signs listed below. Over the next month or so, these four will likely see their relationships become official, according to astrologers.
