In Your Element
There’s more than one reason to be happy in December as earth sign energy begins to dominate with key planets changing star sign. Being a Virgo, you are one of the three earth signs. When planets are in your element, there’s a natural flow in your astrology.
Also, your ruling planet, Mercury, is in sync with what’s happening. Mercury moves swiftly through the zodiac in December, spending most of the time in Sagittarius and your home and family sector from the 9th to the 29th. This suggests that you’ll be happiest getting together with your family or opening your doors to other people over the festive period.
The big news this month, however, is the planet Jupiter on the move. Jupiter is the planet of joy, luck and good fortune. Wherever you find Jupiter in your horoscope, happiness isn’t far behind. Jupiter remains in each sign of the zodiac for approximately one year. And, since November 2018, Jupiter has been in Sagittarius, ruling your home and family.
You may have moved home or changed your living conditions over the last twelve months. Family may have been your number one focus and your protective instincts will have been high. Trying to find a healthy balance between work and home life and dealing with extra challenges in your family won’t always have been easy, either for you or your loved ones.
This month’s stars urge you to let go of what’s old and outdated and focus on what’s new and innovative. Being self-employed, running your own business or trying to make ends meet is a challenge when you also have to pay the bills but reinvention is the name of the game.
Jupiter Goals – Good Times
On the 2nd, Jupiter enters your fellow earth sign, Capricorn, where it remains until December 2020. This is brilliant news for you and a breath of fresh air. The focus turns to what you want out of life rather than relying on others or having to think of other people before yourself.
Capricorn rules creativity, love affairs, entertainment, fun and children in your horoscope. It’s the playful sector and it’s about doing what you love. Therefore, if you’ve felt trapped or been slowed down recently, here’s your opportunity to turn your life around and embrace passion and desire.
Plan some fun events on the run up to the festive period with friends and family and make entertainment, laughter and socialising high priority. Focus on the positives in your life and view the glass half full.
Jupiter is the planet of luck so trust your luck and have a flutter, enter a competition or buy a raffle ticket when you’re out and about.
There is a popular saying in the UK, ‘you have to be in to win’ and this can apply to life as well as the lottery, e.g. if you want to meet someone new, join a dating agency or let your friends know you’re keen for an introduction. This will serve you better than sitting at home alone waiting for the phone to ring.
Same goes if you’ve always wanted to write a book, paint a portrait or play a musical instrument. While Jupiter’s in Capricorn, revisit your childhood dreams and take the first step towards turning a dream into reality.
Jupiter’s move into Capricorn isn’t going to sort out all the nitty-gritty boring stuff of life but it is going to move play and pleasure higher up your life barometer and that’s got to be a good thing.
This month, Jupiter’s in action on the 15th when it teams up with Uranus in Taurus and on the 27th, when there’s the annual Sun-Jupiter conjunction in Capricorn. The Jupiter-Uranus connection could highlight a spontaneous trip, adventure or new experience. Mid-month is ideal for embracing the new and doing things differently.
Both dates feel lucky for you, including the 27th when the Sun and Jupiter come together. This could bring good news for a child or grand-child or an exciting project, one that allows you to express yourself fully.
Capricorn Solar Eclipse
There is, however a New Moon or Solar Eclipse in Capricorn on the 26th and this adds an extra dynamic to events. Eclipses tend to be dramatic and are closely tied to the wheel of fortune. They bring what’s hidden to light, when your life path can change instantly. Sometimes, you experience an ending which is necessary before you can turn to a new page.
You may find that the Jupiter influence boosts your happiness potential on or around the 26th/27th. For some of you, it may not even feel like eclipse season. Stay positive and philosophical about life and make the best of your current situation, whether you’re riding the highs or lows of life.
Jupiter is your partner planet so events over the festive season could be linked to developments in your partner’s life and there’s a passionate vibe to December’s stars. If romance is on the agenda, you won’t want to hold back, but instead will dive in head first. This isn’t a month to be flaky on the love front. Instead, make clear decisions.
Take note of what happens on or around the 3rd, 8th and 13th when Venus in Capricorn, Mars in Scorpio and Neptune in Pisces are upping the emotional and romantic vibes. These planetary connections are about turning dreams into reality and how you can bring more creativity or passion into your everyday life. There’s definite romantic potential and love benefits when you share your emotions openly.
These combinations highlight caring connections too, being there for others or taking on a caring role. You might choose to step in and adopt or mentor or help in some other way.
Finally, you have action planet Mars in Scorpio and your communication sector. Throw yourself into life close to home and reach out and connect with old and new friends alike.
This is the time to blast through any fear or doubt and make your mark. This is good news for public speaking, sales and marketing, finding your voice and sharing what you know. You could choose to go back to school and educate yourself or gain new qualifications, or perhaps you prefer to start a blog or podcast or write for your local paper. You might be leading the carol singing this year.
Scorpio is the sign that likes to go in deep so this is ideal for self-analysis and working hard to gain fresh insight and understanding into the ones you love, especially children.
