Listen up everyone, the paradigm shift is upon us! Not to be overly dramatic, but December is a portal. The astrology of this month is setting us up for what’s to come in 2021 and the years to come. 2020 taught us that the only way out is to dive in headfirst, and now it’s time to embrace the change it takes to get there. It’s still Sagittarius season as the month begins and Mercury moves into the archer’s sign on the 1st, encouraging us to not only dream the impossible dream but to tell the whole world about it. There’s no limit, word count or filter that can get in the way of what needs to be communicated.
Things really start to get juicy at the solar eclipse in Sagittarius on the 14th. Solar eclipses are the catharsis that comes with a fresh start, and in Sagittarius, we can look forward to embarking on an unexpected adventure or philosophical pursuit. Venus joins the party in Sagittarius on the 15th bringing some much-needed amusement to our relationships. When’s the last time we truly had fun?
On the 17th comes a major shift as Saturn—planet of structure and discipline—enters Aquarius, where the ringed planet brings rapid improvements to technology and structural change to our communities. Those born with Saturn in Aquarius are known as innovative leaders from Yoko Ono to Kamala Harris to Cardi B. Jupiter also enters Aquarius on the 19th, and the two planets meet on the 21st for their rare Great Conjunction. This once-in-20-year aspect represents a cultural reset. It’s finally time for a blank slate and a fresh start.
Also on the 21st is the winter solstice as the sun enters Capricorn—happy birthday to our responsible yet kinky sea goats. The full moon in Cancer on the 29th is a sweet culmination to all the upheaval of 2020. Full moons illuminate a situation and this one is the light at the end of the tunnel. We made it!
