Monthly General Horoscopes - December 2020
2021 will be a very different year to 2020 but it won't be on the stroke of midnight on New Year's Eve that everything changes. Instead, change is happening in two ways. The first is a more gradual change that has already begun with Mars' direct turn in Aries last month. By the beginning of December Mars is just starting to pick up some speed, buoyed by the support he is getting from a parade of planets moving through an adventurous part of your chart. This will see your energy and motivation levels increase and also a need for action. A lack of motivation for fitness or physical activity could also return, either already or gradually over the course of the month. The other kind of change will happen more dramatically and over a three day period between 17th December and 20th December. Until then, Saturn and Jupiter are in their final weeks in your career sector and as well as a drive to bring this professional year home there will be a push to succeed that could be construed as pressure. Especially as Saturn has been here for the last three years and Jupiter for the last 12 months. That push to make the most of these final weeks is something that you can channel Mars' energy and motivation into, though you might be feeling a bit jaded or ready to hang up your battle spurs. A very different energy and one that will define 2021 as a very different year to 2020 will be the shift that begins when Saturn leaves your career sector, a professionally charged and competitive part of your chart and returns to your sector of friendship, teamwork and networking on 17th December. Saturn will be followed by Jupiter, the planet of luck and expansion just three days later on 20th December, ushering in a new era where it is less about combatting the world on your own and more about being a team player.
There are two layers to this month, the mundane and the big picture and while that is always the case, the difference this year is that the big picture will change, changing the dynamics of life itself. The big picture is dominated by a partnership between Jupiter, Pluto and Saturn, the planets of luck, change and structure who have come together in your sector of adventure, travel, learning and discovery to open up a world of possibilities. The more mundane picture is that the Sun will always put the focus on money matters in the first three weeks of December, while Venus and Mercury are putting the focus on your relationships. Or at least that is the picture at the start of the month. The faster planets rarely stay still and there are constant shifts and changes, with Mercury in your relationship sector until 2nd December, Venus until 16th December and then no more focus on your relationships after that. This is when the planets that rule the heart and mind will join with the Sun to focus on money matters, which Venus will continue for the rest of the month while the other two will return to an adventurous part of your chart on 21st December, where they will end the year. Jupiter, Pluto and Saturn don't move, with Pluto in an adventurous part of your chart since 2008, Saturn since 2017 and Jupiter since 2019. However, the latter two do move this month and this creates a seismic shift in the dynamics of the year itself and in the process will make 2021 a different year to 2022. The shift begins with Saturn's departure and return to your career sector, a professionally charged and competitive part of your chart on 17th December, followed just three days later by Jupiter's return on 20th December. With Saturn here until 2023 and Jupiter working to make 2021 as expansive as possible, this is a major sea change. However, the faster planets are working to ensure life doesn't become all work and no play.
Change is usually gradual, especially when it comes to the slower planets that can spend years in an area of your chart. It is a different story for the faster planets and their more immediate but less life changing impact. Any month is always full of the latter, though for several months of 2020, with so many planets in retrograde motion it might have felt like life had become stagnant. However, what you have this month is a lot of change on the more mundane aspects of life and a fairly sudden and seismic shift when it comes to the big picture. On the more mundane level, you have a good month for personal and professional networking, friendship and relationship building as well as on the job and career fronts. Mars, in both his first full month in direct motion in your sector of friendship, teamwork and networking and his last before leaving early next month, is getting a lot of support from the planets in your relationship sector. The Sun will always spend the first three weeks of December in your relationship sector but he is joined by Mercury, the planet of communication on 2nd December. The Sun and Mercury will both leave on 21st December but Venus' return on 16th January will keep the planet of love here over the Christmas, New Year and the holiday period. Until they return to your relationship sector Mercury and Venus will be working to make their final days and weeks in your work sector count, working with Neptune in his first full month in direct motion in your career sector. The major sea change comes when Saturn leaves your financial sector on 17th December, wrapping up a three year financial boot camp and Jupiter wraps up his 12 month visit just three days later on 20th December. The Sun and Mercury will return a day later to keep your financial situation and money matters on track but by then Jupiter and Saturn will be in your sector of adventure, travel, learning and discovery, where they will dominate 2021.
There are two stories in play this month and both are exciting. The first is the dance of the faster planets and the opportunities, challenges and also compromise this requires and second is a major sea change. The faster planets are working to create a balance between work and play, which they should manage to achieve, with a little help from Venus, in his first full month in direct motion in an adventurous part of your chart. While Mercury will leave a playful part of your chart on 2nd December and Venus on 16th December, the spirit of adventure will help to defend the boundaries between work and play. And there will be a need to defend those boundaries, with Mars spending both his first full month in direct motion and his last full month in your career sector. Back in direct motion and buoyed by planetary activity on the job front, this could be the most defining and the busiest month of 2020. The Sun will always spend the first three weeks of December in your work sector but he will be joined by Mercury on 2nd December while a total solar eclipse on 14th December could act as a catalyst or a major trigger for both job and career matters. Venus will be in her final days in a playful part of your chart by then, but even she will return to your work sector on 16th December. This is just a day before a major sea change begins, starting with Saturn's departure from Capricorn on 17th December and then followed by Jupiter's departure three days later, on 20th December. Capricorn is both your opposing sign and the ruler of your relationship sector and their departure will take the pressure off you and your relationships while leaving you with a powerful legacy. It is then that they will return to your financial sector, setting the scene for a major opportunity to take your financial power back in 2021 and beyond, with Saturn here until 2023.
As much as Saturn and Jupiter's final weeks in your busy work sector does mean that this is likely to be a busy month, there are some safety measures to ensure life doesn't become all work and no play. With Saturn in your busy work sector since 2017 and Jupiter since 2019, this has been a busy year and there is no reason to expect any different this month, except the pace could increase or at least the pressure to increase the pace. For after three years Saturn will leave your work sector on 17th December, not to return for another three decades, with Jupiter leaving three days later on 20th December, not to return for another 11 years. There is urgency and some pressure but not to complete anything, for with the Sun and Mercury both returning on 21st December they will not only take over but take things down to a more mundane and practical level. Any urgency is to pay attention as Jupiter's sense of what's possible merges with Saturn's determination to do whatever it takes for as long as it takes in their final weeks. Saturn and Jupiter's aim is to leave you with the confidence, motivation and momentum that the faster planets can manage once they leave. It is then that Saturn and Jupiter will turn their focus onto your relationship sector, where it will remain throughout 2021 and in Saturn's case, through to 2023. Meanwhile, because the Sun will always spend the first three weeks of December in a fun, playful, romantic and creatively charged part of your chart, there is a total solar eclipse here on 14th December and Mars is in his first full month in direct motion and his last full month in an adventurous part, there are safeguards to ensure life doesn't become all work and no play. While the Sun and Mercury will leave and return to your work sector on 21st December, Venus' will not only return to a fun, playful, romantic and creatively charged part of your chart on 16th December but will spend Christmas, New Year and the holiday period here.
There is a major sea change coming this month, one that there is reason to be excited about but also time to prepare for. That sea change is when after three years in a fun, playful, romantic and creatively charged part of your chart Saturn not only leaves on 17th December but will return to your busy work sector. What makes this an even more significant shift is that after 12 months Jupiter will make that exact same step, from a playful part of your chart to your busy work sector just three days later, on 20th December. This is good news professionally and after starting the month on the back of an eclipsing Full Moon on the career front, there is a lot to be excited about. This is a major sea change and these are the planets that will define 2021 and make it such a huge year for both job and career matters. However, this is also something that you have time to prepare for and especially when it comes to future proofing your life against becoming all work and no play. That is unlikely to happen, not with the Sun and Mercury returning to a fun, playful, romantic and creatively charged part of your chart on 21st December, a day after Jupiter leaves and Pluto, the planet of change and revolution is staying on until 2024. However, all the rest of the planets in the solar system combined don't match the size, power and weight that Saturn and Jupiter bring so this is going to shift the balance of power. Right up to the very last day before that shift happens, Venus is working to make the most of the time before a busy wave begins, leaving your communication sector on 16th December. Until then Venus is working to give your heart and your relationships a voice and will be working with Neptune, in his first full month in direct motion in your relationship sector during her time here. It is then that Venus will join the Sun and Mercury in your home and family sector, where they not only have the focus on home and family matters but are working define the right work/life balance.
Venus' departure from Libra late last month finally brought all planetary activity in your sign to an end, allowing you to fully embrace the journey that this new solar year will take you on. However, this has also had other positive implications and especially on the relationship front. Venus was the only planet to clash with Mars, during his longest visit to your relationship sector in 32 years but she was the last. With so much focus on your relationships this year and especially since Mars' return in June, the planets moving through Libra have had to push back, battling to maintain a balance between your personal and relationship needs. Venus' departure doesn't mean that Mars has won or that it has now become all about your relationships and less about you, for this has left you with a sense of what you want from your relationships and what they need from you that has empowered both. Venus has now turned her attention onto making the final weeks of 2020 as lucrative as possible. Until leaving your income sector on 16th December Venus is working closely with Neptune, in his first full month in direct motion in your work sector to make the closing weeks of this year as opportune as possible on the income and job fronts. It is just a day after Venus leaves and turns her attention onto giving your heart and your relationships a voice that a major sea change begins. It is on 17th December that Saturn will leave your home and family sector, where he has been since 2017 and just three days later that he is followed by Jupiter, who has been here since December. With the Sun and Mercury returning the next day, home and family matters will still be well supported by they will no longer be the dominant force. Instead, Jupiter and Saturn's return to a fun, playful, romantic and creatively charged part of your chart is not just changing the focus and dynamics of this year but of life itself.
There are both major changes and the more mundane and expected changes that we see in any month, making December the month that has a foot in two years. This is a month when the major themes of 2020 are slipping away and the major themes that will dominate 2021 are already starting to emerge. There is no doubt that 2021 will be a very different year to 2020 but there won't be a harsh line in the sand on New Year's Day and more an overlapping of the two and it begins over a three day period, from 17th December to 20th December. It begins with Saturn's departure from your communication sector and Jupiter's just three days later. Both will return to your home and family sector, where together they will put a major focus on home, family and/or property matters in 2021 and Saturn's case, through to 2023. On the more mundane level, the pace is starting to pick up and after months of having the majority of the planets in the solar system in direct motion, they are moving forward. The last planet to turn direct was Mars, whose direct turn in your work sector last month is likely to make December a busy month, whether at work or with the things that keep you busy. Fortunately, with the Sun and Mercury in your income sector until 21st December and Venus from 16th December, this is also likely to be a lucrative month. A total solar eclipse in your income sector on 14th December should help with that. Meanwhile, while Jupiter and Saturn will both be gone from your communication sector the Sun and Mercury, the planet of communication will both return on 21st December, just a day after Jupiter leaves. This will ensure that the communication support continues and with Mars returning to your relationship sector in the New Year, this couldn't be more important.
Whether you are a November or a December born Sagittarian, this is your month, with the Sun always spending the first three weeks of December in your sign. This is far more than just a chance to celebrate your birthday month and is a chance to push the 'reset' button, with a new solar year offering an opportunity to change things up. It is fitting then that the two significant and defining events happen in the closing days of your birthday month. It is on 17th December that Saturn will leave your income sector and return to your communication sector, followed by Jupiter on 20th December. With the Sun leaving Sagittarius on 21st December, the last full day of your birthday month will witness a major sea change and the birth of the energy that will define 2021. Your communication sector is the 'Swizz army knife' of your chart, with a tool for every purpose. Yes, this puts a lot of focus on communication but every aspect of your life will benefit from Saturn's mental discipline, the power to push through mental and communication barriers and from Jupiter's ability to expand your mind, allowing you to think big. This is the start of a lucky year for communication, talks, ideas and anything the mind can create and it comes into life in the final days of your birthday month and as you are setting your expectations for your new solar year. Jupiter and Saturn will leave behind quite a legacy on the income front but the income potential and momentum created won't leave with them. The Sun and Mercury will both return to your income sector on 21st December, Venus early next month and with Mars returning to your work sector just a week into 2021 the best is still to come on both the income and job fronts. Until then, in his last full month in a fun, playful, romantic and creatively charged part of your chart, Mars is on a mission to ensure life doesn't become all work and no play.
By the time the Sun returns to Capricorn on 21st December to begin your birthday month and new solar year Saturn, your ruling planet who has been here since 2017 will be gone. So too will Jupiter, who was in the early weeks of a 12 month visit when the Sun returned to Capricorn last December. It is in the closing days of this old solar year that two massive journeys end and two new journeys begin. The journeys ending are Saturn's three year mission to lay down the foundations for a new three decades long Saturn cycle and of Jupiter's 12 month mission to the same for a new 12 year Jupiter cycle of expansion. Saturn will leave Capricorn on 17th December and Jupiter on 20th December, just a day before the Sun returns to begin your birthday month and new solar year, where he will do the same, this time spending a month laying down the foundations for a new 12 month solar year. This is a lot of new beginnings. Saturn and Jupiter will both return to your income sector, where Saturn will remain until 2023 and where Jupiter, the planet of luck and expansion will begin a mission to make 2021 as lucrative as possible. Both are playing a long game but when the faster planets begin returning in January, they will be able to exploit this with real time benefits. In the meantime, Mars is working to make this last full month in your home and family sector count, finally wrapping up what should have been a six week visit that began in June. As the month progresses you will find the energy, drive and motivation to get things done and make things happen, which could expand out to full blown projects around the home over the holiday period. Meanwhile, pay attention to the playful, creative and romantically charged lunar vibes over Christmas. The Moon will move through a fun, playful, romantic and creatively charged part of your chart from 24th December to 27th December but with Mars returning in the New Year, this is a taste of things to come.
This is the month that you have been waiting for and while 2021 is the year that everything until now has led up to and everything from now will lead on from, the shift doesn't happen on New Year's Day it happens before Christmas. With the Sun always returning to Aquarius in January and with your birthday month and new solar year always starting three weeks into any year, you have been subconsciously programmed to end the year waiting for a fresh start in the New Year. With a new calendar and solar year starting within three weeks of each other, December is more a month for wrapping things up and for completing this year, ready for a fresh start next month. However, the future will come calling much sooner than that, when Saturn returns to Aquarius on 17th December and Jupiter just three days later on 20th December. You begin a new calendar and solar year every 12 months but you only begin a new Saturn system every three decades and a new Jupiter cycle once every 12 years yet you have these two major life cycles beginning within days of each other. This dwarfs the new beginnings in the New Year and opens major new doors before Christmas. Saturn is in Aquarius until 2023 but Jupiter will spend 2021 opening as many new doors and creating as many options as possible. This is the first time that Saturn and Jupiter have been in Aquarius at the same time in decades but their alignment here from 20th December to 24th December is their first and only alignment in Aquarius in our lifetime. The two most powerful planets in the solar system will come together in the days leading up to Christmas to put their combined weight into opening new doors. Ironically, it is just a day later that the Sun will return to a nostalgic and reflective part of your chart to begin the wind down of your current solar year. However, as this is where Saturn and Jupiter have just left, this will be more a case of tying off loose ends without having to wait to embrace the future.
The money and professional gods are not only working to make the final weeks of this financial and professional year as opportune as possible, they have a good chance of pulling it off. The Sun will always spend the first three weeks of December in your career sector but a total solar eclipse here on 14th December could be a catalyst or trigger for either immediate developments or a flow on effect into next year. This is a direct result of having the South Node in your career sector since May and is equivalent to an earthquake releasing pent up energy. Once dispersed, this can take on a life of its own. However, with Mercury in your income sector from 2nd December and Venus from 16th December, there is plenty of support to run with whatever this might trigger. This includes from Mars, with the warrior planet of the cosmos working to make the most of both his first full month in direct motion and his last full month in your income sector. Mars will leave your income sector on 7th January but with Venus, the planet of money in your career sector from 16th December to 9th January, she will cover him during his final weeks and they will work together to help each other out. Meanwhile, while the Sun and Mercury will both return to your sector of friendship, teamwork and networking on 21st December and this is where they will spend the rest of the year, this comes just a day after Jupiter leaves. Saturn will leave your friendship sector three days earlier, with his departure and return to a nostalgic and reflective part of your chart leading the way for Jupiter to follow three days later. This is when Saturn begins the nearly three year wind down of your current three decades Saturn cycle while Jupiter will return for a more speedy wind down of your current 12 year Jupiter cycle of expansion, with the planet of luck and expansion returning to Pisces in May.
