Venus Leads The Way
Your ruler Venus begins the month in your fellow earth sign of Capricorn where it remains until the 20th. This is a good time to work on your long-term goals and line up some new adventures for the year ahead.
Venus in Capricorn is about the bigger picture in life and travelling far and wide to seek fulfilment or knowledge. It’s about discovering your purpose or what gives your life meaning. Once Venus moves into Aquarius and your career & vocation sector on the 20th, you might be ready to take some new steps in your life.
This would be an excellent time to draw up a wish list or consider your qualifications and what you want to learn or know more about. It’s a period of inner growth when you want to better yourself in some way and make the most of all that life has to offer.
Jupiter Goals – Travel & Study
This theme is intensified because there’s a major planetary shift taking place which is great news for you. This involves Jupiter, the planet of opportunity, which enters your fellow earth sign, Capricorn, on the 2nd where it remains until December 2020.
If you’re travelling or planning a big trip this month, you’re in sync with your stars. And, it’s one of the best months of the year to invest in a course or learning programme.
Jupiter takes approximately one year to journey through each sign of the zodiac so the last time Jupiter was in Capricorn was 12 years ago. Jupiter rules travel, study, philosophy, spirituality and any activity that expands your horizons and broadens your experience of life.
If you want to travel abroad or live in another country, if you want to take a sabbatical from work and explore a new direction, it starts with believing and knowing that anything’s possible. Set your intentions as Jupiter’s year of exploration begins and let the universe hear your voice.
This is a wonderful opportunity to think globally, expand your network and reach out to other people in different countries and cultures. You may want to see the world or save the world as Jupiter is closely linked to philanthropy and charitable actions. Jupiter rules publishing, the Law, truth and humanity. Stake your claim and begin your voyage of discovery.
The key dates this month to embrace this new dynamic energy are the 15th and the 27th. In fact, the 15th could be an outstanding date for you as Jupiter in Capricorn teams up with Uranus in your star sign, Taurus. This is a positive planetary aspect which links the two planets representing freedom and risk-taking.
There’s a feeling of fate or destiny about what may transpire, as if someone else opens the door for you and leads you down a new and adventurous path. This is not a time to stay stuck in a rut or hang on too tightly to your comfort zone. Allow yourself to be open to inspiration and all that’s new.
It might be that a last-minute change of plan works out for the best. Go wherever life leads you and welcome the diversions that appear in front of you.
The 27th is a stand-out date because it’s the annual Sun-Jupiter conjunction in Capricorn. This brings with it a feel-good vibe. Look out for a teacher or the chance to learn something new that opens up a new path ahead. Be visionary and entrepreneurial. Send some arrows high in to the sky to see where they land.
Capricorn Solar Eclipse
Admittedly, the Sun-Jupiter conjunction falls one day after a powerful New Moon or Solar Eclipse, again in Capricorn. This is where the planetary energy dominates this month. Eclipses are shadowy and sometimes they reveal a new picture once the shadow lifts.
This eclipse is part of a Cancer/Capricorn eclipse cycle which began in July 2018 and completes in July 2020. In your horoscope, this is primarily about communication and education.
Cancer rules your communication sector, both the written and spoken word and eclipses bring change. You might be going back to school, decide to drop out of university or a course, or have a specific issue with qualifications or learning that’s personal to you.
Capricorn represents higher education, also life experience. This sector of your horoscope is about travel, living abroad, your philosophy on life, your beliefs and religion. See what transpires late December. And, if you’re celebrating the festive season in a different country or amongst a different culture, you’re in tune with your stars.
Love & Passion
Love and relationships could also prove exciting this month with Mars, your partner planet, moving through Scorpio and your relationship sector. Someone new could breeze in and jazz up your life or you rediscover your passion. If you’re married or in a long-term relationship, do something adventurous as a couple, have fun together and put the spark back into your sex life.
Events on or around the 3rd could prove pivotal in a partnership when Venus and Mars unite. You may be ready to expand your horizons because of the person you’re with. Or perhaps, your partner lands a job abroad, or you’re being encouraged to take a sabbatical to do what you love.
Joining together with other people this month will not only bring happiness and fulfilment your way but could be truly blissful. Stand-out dates are the 8th and 13th. Throw yourself into the festive activities and find meaning through group connections. Come together with other people to sing, celebrate and give back to the community.
This is where joy can be found this month. It’s not about money or expensive presents. Instead, favour thoughtful gifts and offer love, care and friendship.
