As we said in our monthly horoscopes, December is a portal. But are we ready for it? Since the beginning of the month, we’ve been sitting in a bit of cosmic muck: rehashing past bad decisions and realizing we aren’t where we thought we’d be. But this week, we finally get not only forward momentum, but a fresh outlook on the biggest problems we need to solve. There’s a lot happening, but the main events are the total solar eclipse on the 14th followed by Venus, Saturn and Jupiter all changing signs.
The total solar eclipse on the 14th is in Sagittarius, the sign that dreams the impossible dream. And though this eclipse might cut through some of our delusions, it also empowers us to know what we actually want. It’s time to ask for that raise, take that relationship to the next level and move into that fabulous new apartment. At the same time, we must let go of toxic situations and relationships that keep us from thriving. If a bridge needs to be burned, let’s burn it. Venus moves into Sagittarius on the 15th which has us feeling more joyful and optimistic about what’s to come. Artists who aren’t afraid to make a splash (or roll with a joke) like David Bowie, Katy Perry and Nicki Minaj all have Venus in Sagittarius. This holiday season is going to be weird, but we might as well make it fun!
Disciplined Saturn moves into Aquarius on the 17th and opportunistic Jupiter follows its lead into the fixed air sign on the 19th. There will be more to say about these two planets next week, but this is a paradigm shift. Aquarius is socially driven, a humanitarian. 2020 was all about acknowledging what wasn’t working and closing out the past. Now, it’s time to face the future.
(Horoscopes follow for each sign. If you know your rising sign, reading for that will provide further insight.)
