The month begins with mystical Neptune stationing direct in your sign – Pisces on December 1st. Neptune Direct is all about showing you how far you’ve come in your life journey, and trusting that it’s OK to make mistakes. Over the past few months, you had a chance to understand your authentic self better. Now you are ready to move into the next phase of your life.
The South Node Solar Eclipse in Sagittarius on December 4th turns your attention onto your goals, career and public image. Possible changes in career direction or a shift in your career role is possible now due to the pressure from the important person/people in your life. Alternatively, the company you work for may go through major changes. Whatever the scenario, during this eclipse season, you are fully aware of your reputation and you want to do the right thing. Whether material or emotional, you strive for success, and you don’t want to waste any of your valuable time.
Mars enters fire sign Sagittarius on December 13th where it will remain until January 24th. This transit activates your career and professional development area, increasing your desire for others to notice you. This can be a good time to either start a new business or gain more authority over a specific matter that allows you to show off your leadership skills. Be cautious when dealing with people in authority as under the influence of Mars, you may jump too quickly to conclusions or appear overconfident, pouring more energy into self-promotion.
The Full Moon in Gemini on December 18th, turns your attention onto your domestic sphere, illuminating the things that you didn’t see before. Your need for establishing emotional inner safety and security is highlighted at this time. It’s when matters concerning your home, family or security come to your awareness.
Venus turns retrograde in Capricorn from December 19th until January 29th. This retrograde stimulates you to re-evaluate your friendships, groups, and organisations you belong to and your long-term plans and goals. During this retrograde, you may either let go of toxic friendships or organisations or devote yourself more deeply to the existing ones which you realise are the right fit for you. The goal of this retrograde is to review your social networking skills and re-define your long term plans and goals. If you feel unsure about the future, and resist change, this will limit your ability to take advantage of opportunities that come your way. Watch out for the 11th and the 25th of December. This is when Venus will conjunct with transformational Pluto. This blend of energies can bring out some obsessive and compulsive behavioural patterns concerning your future or an important friendship in your life. Alternatively, one of your friendships may turn into a deep romance.
On December 23rd, Saturn and Uranus square, the third one of 2021, may stimulate you to implement significant changes in your life, especially in the areas of life where you have been unhappy or felt restricted due to other people’s negative influences or external factors out of your control. Initially, this can be a frustrating time, where tensions can arise due to unexpected changes; however, you can face these challenging energies and ultimately turn them into new opportunities with an open-minded and flexible mindset. The best way to deal with this transit is to let the events unfold without forcing anything. Eventually, it will become apparent to you which area of your life is not working anymore.
Jupiter moves into your sign for the second time this year on December 28th, where it will remain until May 10th 2022. This transit increases your optimism and self-confidence, helping you see life from a more open-minded perspective. What happened in the past may not be very important to you now, as your primary focus is the future. This is an excellent time for self-improvement, as furthering your inner drives and goals comes more easily during this period. With Jupiter in your 1st house, you will likely feel considerably more outgoing and free to be your true self. I will discuss this transit further in the yearly horoscope, which will be released in the second part of December 2021.
