The month begins with Neptune turning direct in water sign Pisces, in your sphere of creativity, children, romance and entertainment, increasing your inner desire for self-expression. This is a great time for reconnecting with your inner child, for following your heart and approaching life in a more carefree way.
The South Node New Moon Solar Eclipse in Sagittarius on December 4th activates your 2nd house of income, resources and self-esteem. Issues of finances and self-worth come into focus at this time. Someone or something may motivate you to use your skills and talents to change how you earn money. You may also get in touch with your deepest values as feelings of self-worth might stimulate you to discover and understand your strengths and weaknesses. This is a great time for reviewing your financial situation and for making plans that could help you to ensure financial stability in the long term. You may want to become more financially independent especially if you had to depend on someone else in the past.
Mars enters Sagittarius on December 13th where it will stay until January 24th/25th making you more driven and motivated to work on your financial sphere. This can be a very active time when you make the most of what you have. Under the influence of this transit, there is a tendency for over-identifying with what you have and own. If conflicts occur during the duration of this transit, they are likely to be over ownership issues. This is a time when impulse purchasing is at a peak and for this reason, you probably should be mindful when using credit right, solely because your spending habits may be excessive and maybe even careless.
The Full Moon in Gemini on December 18-19, falls in your sphere of transformation and intimate matters. During this time, you might form a deep relationship with another or get involved in healing activities. Alternatively, you might become more interested in metaphysics or topics concerning death and the afterlife. If you feel like your life was on the wrong track, then this full moon may help you to return to your true self and move away from any blockages that stand in the way towards personal empowerment.
Venus turns retrograde from December 19th until January 29th in earth sign Capricorn. Capricorn rules your sphere of communication, siblings and short distance travel. With Venus retrograde here you might be prompted to re-assess your relationship with people from your immediate surroundings as well as your siblings, but at the same time how effectively you communicate with others might also trigger your thoughts. You may also experience possible transportation issues and your siblings may go through change, or alternatively, you may have to deal with more paperwork than usual. While Venus stays in Capricorn, it will form two conjunctions with Pluto on December 11th and the 25th, dramatically increasing your need for expressing yourself in a form of a written or spoken project. This blend of energies may also intensify your desire for studying, reading, writing and getting involved in the life within your community.
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 water sign Pisces on December 28 until May 10, at which point it will travel into fire sign Aries for a few months before returning back into Pisces on September 15 until the end of 2022. During the time when Jupiter stays in your sphere of creativity, children and romance you are going to approach life in a more carefree way. Your need to express yourself creatively is likely to increase and you may also decide you want to break away from old routines, outlived life patterns. You may see the romantic side of your life from a very different angle and you may attract influential people into your life who may help you to move up the ladder of success. I will discuss this transit further in the yearly horoscopes, which I will release in the second part of December 2021.
Thank you for reading, have a pleasant December!
