December is your birthday month. The Sun remains in Sagittarius until the 21st, the day of the Solstice. If you’re a typical Sagittarius, you’re a hedonist at heart and it’s fitting that you celebrate your birthday during one of the most festive months of the year.
For many Sagittarius individuals, the run up to the holiday season is the perfect excuse to celebrate and enjoy yourself.
Talk planet Mercury is also in Sagittarius up until the 13th and action planet Mars enters Sagittarius on the same day that Mercury leaves your star sign. Therefore, the focus is firmly on you and your personal goals and aims throughout the month ahead.
This is about your image and profile, how you come across to other people and how the world sees you. Find your voice and ensure you’re heard. The key dates for celebration and speaking up are the 11th & 20th when Mercury and the Sun in your star sign align with Jupiter, your ruling planet. Jupiter’s in Aquarius and one of the most social sectors of your horoscope.
Plus, it’s always going to be an important month when you have an eclipse in your star sign. The eclipse date is the 4th when there’s a New Moon Solar Eclipse in Sagittarius. This eclipse is part of a bigger eclipse cycle that began in June 2020 and completes this month on the Full Moon in Gemini on the 19th.
This eclipse cycle cuts across the axis of your horoscope which represents you on the one hand, your identity, your image and profile, your personal goals and aims. The other axis represents your one-to-one’s, your close relationships, both personal and professional.
As eclipses often coincide with change, it’s unlikely that your relationships are going to be the same as they were at the start of this eclipse cycle 18 months ago. Plus, you’re unlikely to be the same person, especially if you’re being called forth to reconsider what’s important to you and where your values lie.
Tend to these key areas of your life – identity & relationships – and look at where change is needed or where change may happen. Have you lost sight of who you are or do you play a role that no longer suits you in a significant one-to-one?
Also, notice who comes into your life on or around the eclipse. Eclipses are often turning points, moments of destiny, linked to endings and new beginnings.
The Sagittarius Solar Eclipse could be super turbo-charged for you and lead you into the limelight. Take advantage of any chance to shine.
Money is also under the cosmic spotlight this month thanks to planets moving through Capricorn and your personal money sector. Mercury is here from the 13th and is joined by the Sun on the 21st.
Most importantly, Venus is in Capricorn throughout December. This is because the planet linked to love and money turns retrograde on the 19th and remains on go slow until January 29, 2022. This could signify a shift regarding finances or money matters. You may have to play a waiting game if you have money that’s owed to you.
Also, Venus switches direction conjunct Pluto in Capricorn and this adds an extra level of intensity to events. Venus and Pluto conjoin in Capricorn on the 11th & 25th. There may be an edge to money that comes your way, whether it’s via an inheritance or via a company that’s closing down. There can be a theme of endings and loss where Pluto’s concerned.
If you are entering into a new relationship this month, dig deep before doing so. There’s a theme of secrets or a potential cover-up with Venus & Pluto side by side. Do your research, demand a pre-nuptial agreement. Whatever works for you. Be savvy when it comes to money especially if there are invisible ties that connect you and someone close.
If you want to have a serious conversation with someone in your life around money or sexuality, choose the 29th when talk planet Mercury teams up with Venus.
Jupiter Enters Pisces
At times this month – key date 7th & 12th – you may feel unsure of where you’re heading and why. Yet, come the end of the month, things could quickly change for the better. This is because your ruling planet Jupiter is on the move into its other sign of rulership.
On the 29th, Jupiter returns to Pisces, the star sign at the base of your horoscope. It remains here until May 10, 2022. Jupiter’s already been in Pisces from May 13 to July 28, 2021. Look back to this period for clues.
Jupiter’s move into Pisces turns the spotlight towards your home and family, your past and your roots. When Jupiter’s in this sector of your horoscope, it’s a classic time to move home or expand where you live.
With Jupiter’s foreign theme, you may be planning a move abroad or a meeting with family who live in another part of the country. There might be a family celebration. Or, you catch up with people from your past and remember your roots and where you come from.
This may be a time when you expand your family, whether via your children, an adoption, the addition of a step family or community living. And, as Jupiter rules freedom, you can’t rule out someone in your family fleeing the nest.
Jupiter works in synchronous ways so it’s important that you put yourself in its path. Say yes to any new opportunity that opens up when Jupiter begins its new journey through Pisces. Look out for signs and coincidences on or around the 29th.
