Monthly Career Horoscopes - December 2020
January and February are always the most important months of any professional year for you and not just because one gets the professional year moving and the other brings it home. Instead, it is because the Sun will always spend the last 10 days and the first three weeks of every year in your career sector and that has always and will always be the case, regardless of what else is going on. Since 2008 you ended each year with Pluto in your career sector, for the last three years with Saturn here and with Jupiter here since last September. However, while you begin the month with all three here only Pluto will be left by the end of the month. Saturn has spent three years giving you the power to move mountains and while the price you have had to pay for this was facing challenges, with mountains thrown in your way and calls for courage, these have earned you badges that will serve you well for years to come. At the same time, while having Jupiter, the planet of luck and expansion in your career sector is creating the potential for professional growth and expansion, much of what his time here will manifest are seeds planted in the ground that will bear fruit over the coming weeks, months or even years. Saturn will leave on 17th December and Jupiter on 20th December, with their final weeks more about investing in the future than anything you might or might not do this month. That is because less than 24 hours after Jupiter and Saturn leave, the planets that play a short game and are more focused on the here and now will return. The Sun and Mercury will both return on 21st December, with Jupiter's seat still warm and with no time for his momentum to drop back. With Mercury here until 9th January, the Sun until 19th January and Venus not even returning until 9th January, they will work to bring this professional year home and to use everything harnessed over the last three years to give your 2021 professional year the best possible start. Until they leave, Saturn continues to ask much from you while Jupiter asks that you continue to believe in what's possible.
At the start of the month, there is nothing to suggest the massive sea change just a few weeks away or just how game changing this will be. You begin December with no planetary activity in either of your two professional houses, as is normally the case this late in the year. However, the difference is that Venus had just left your work sector towards the end of last month and the dwarf planet Ceres had just left your career sector a few weeks earlier. Just having planetary activity on the job and career fronts that late in the year would allow you to begin December with the information and resources to bring this professional year home. While that is still the case, this is likely to create a sense of anticipation, especially as Ceres had retrograde back into your career sector after leaving in order to update your professional desires and expectations. That sense that you are preparing for something is likely to become stronger as the month progresses, until on 17th December everything changes. It begins with the Moon's return to your career sector for what should be an ordinary monthly visit, which it is, designed to fuel your professional instincts and imagination. However, it is what happens next and while the Moon is here that changes everything. Also on 17th December and just a few hours behind the Moon, Saturn will return to your career sector and it is just before it leaves on 20th December that Jupiter, the planet of luck and expansion will return. Within the span of the Moon's ordinary monthly visit to your career sector, the two most powerful planets in the solar system will return to take up residence, Saturn for the next three years and Jupiter to create as much professional growth and expansion as possible over the next 12 months. Until the Sun and Mercury return next month there is a chance to first adjust to having these giants of the solar system here.
While the final month of any professional year is a time for bringing things home this is also a transition month, with a handover taking place between the planets on the job and career fronts. In your career sector from 2012 to 2026, Neptune is playing a long game and because of that will spend from June to November of each in retrograde motion. Neptune only turned direct in the closing days of November and as you move into December has been in direct motion for less than 48 hours and is still at a standstill. The planet of dreams is in no hurry for he has until the Sun returns in February to get back up to speed. With Jupiter, the planet of luck and expansion returning to your career sector in May and meeting up with Neptune here for the first time in our lifetime, his job is to have a dream ready for when they meet up. And meet up they will, with the planets of luck and dreams coming together on the career front three times over the course of 2021 and 2022. It is that long game that takes away any urgency and instead, puts the focus on Mercury and Venus' final days in your work sector. That there is still planetary activity on the job front this late in the year is because of retrograde phases for both at different points in the year. Mercury will leave until 2nd December and until leaving, his focus is on giving you the intellectually savvy edge and articulation needed to work smarter, get your head in the game, ideas on the table and the communication lines open. As the planet of money, until she leaves your work sector on 16th December Venus will work to fuel your job confidence, attract opportunities and steer things in a lucrative direction. With both working closely with Neptune, the last month of this professional year will be especially good for work and job matters while giving you a head start for your 2021 professional year.
The Sun will always spend the first three weeks of December in your work sector, which is just one reason why this is often the busiest time of any year for you. The other is that where the Sun is you will find Venus and Mercury and while the Sun will always leave on the December solstice and will be gone by Christmas, one or the other will often stay on. That is the case this year but in addition, you also have Mars in the last full month of his longest visit to your career sector in 32 years and on a mission to gain as much traction and momentum as possible. Mars returned in June for what should have been a six week visit but a two month retrograde phase means he is still here. Mars only turned direct last month and was just starting to move forward when the Sun returned to your work sector. A combination of naturally reaching a point where he was ready to bring career matters home and the Sun returning to crank things up on the job front makes them natural allies. It is while the Moon is in your work sector from 13th December to 15th December that it will converge with the Sun and the South Node to create a total solar eclipse on 14th December. With all three at a friendly aspect to Mars, this could be a major catalyst across the job and career fronts. With the Sun and Mercury, who will return to your work sector on 2nd December both leaving on 21st December and Mars leaving your career sector in early January, they will be keen to harness everything this eclipsing New Moon can trigger. However, thanks to Venus' return to your work sector on 16th December and position here until 9th January, Mars will not be without support from planets on the job front, something he only gained late last month. With Mars leaving your career sector on 7th January and Venus your work sector on 9th January, they will work as a team to bring this professional year home and to get your 2021 professional year off to the best possible start before leaving.
While there is continuous planetary activity in your work sector all month, as has been the case for every other month this year, this is a month of two halves, with the whole dynamics of this professional year shifting. Since his return to your work sector in 2017 Saturn has dominated things, asking much from you but in return giving you the power to move mountains. Since Jupiter returned in December 2019 he has been working to promote job growth and expansion, planting seeds that you can continue to harvest for months if not years to come. Both Jupiter and Saturn are playing a long game and that includes right up to their departure this month. Jupiter's aim is to leave you with a sense of what's possible and Saturn the determination to do whatever it takes for as long as it takes. These are resources that the faster planets, who aren't focused on the long game and want to see things happen now will use to their advantage and this is why this changes the dynamics and the focus this month. Saturn is the first to leave on 17th December, while the Moon is here but before they have a chance to align. The Moon is in your work sector from 15th December to 17th December, with Saturn leaving on the same day and Jupiter three days later on 20th December. However, the faster planets won't waste any time with the Sun and Mercury returning just a day later on 21st December. Both will remain here for the rest of the year and will be here when Mars not only returns to your career sector on 7th January but Venus to your work sector two days later. Much of the opportunities and movement that is possible on the job and career fronts in the early weeks and months of 2021 is a result of what Jupiter and Saturn are investing. Until 20th December the focus is on the long game and on investing in the future while from 21st December that future is here and it is time to make things happen. The holiday period will be a valuable time to regroup before hitting the ground running in 2021.
Just starting the month with the Moon in your career sector is an advantage, ensuring your professional instincts and imagination are fuelled from the get go. Even more so as until leaving on 2nd December, the Moon is wrapping up the eclipsing Full Moon this created shortly after returning on 30th November, with the full force in effect as the doors open to the final month of this professional year. This is a direct result of having the North Node in your career sector and as a lunar eclipse has a lot more force behind it than an ordinary Full Moon gets the month off to an empowered start. This late in the professional year and with the returning to your work sector in January each year, this should be the last event of any real significance. The Moon will return to your career sector from 27th December to 29th December but this will be to compete or to wrap up what the eclipsing Full Moon started. However, by then the whole dynamics of not just this professional year but every year through to 2023 will have changed. The change happens on 17th December, starting with the Moon's return for its last visit to your work sector for the year. However, it is what happens next that turns this into something a lot more than a chance to get a better read on work and job matters. It is just hours after the Moon's return that Saturn will return and it is just a few hours before it leaves on 20th December that Jupiter, the planet of luck and expansion will also return. Saturn is playing a long game and until leaving in 2023 will slowly plough the field, creating structures, building resolve and providing resilience and the power to move mountains if you have to. Jupiter, on the other hand, is playing a much shorter game and until leaving in December 2021 will work to create as much job growth, expansion and opportunities as possible, especially in the first and the last five months of 2021. With the North Node in your career sector until January 2022, providing a constant sense of direction and purpose this is a major game changer across the professional landscape.
While not a game changing month, the professional gods are delivering what should be a good month for both job and career matters which in turn is a stepping stone to bigger developments next year. Especially on the job front. While the Sun left your career sector last month, as it will do at the same time every year, Venus and Mercury are still here thanks to retrograde phases at various points in the year. It was Mercury's retrograde turn that has kept him in your career sector for months rather than weeks, while a retrograde phase earlier in the year means Venus was late to return and therefore late to leave. Mercury will leave on 2nd December but not before leaving you with the intellectually savvy edge and articulation needed to keep your head in the game, ideas on the table and the communication lines open. While Mercury will leave you with the means to finalise your professional game plan and resolutions, until Venus leaves on 16th December you are likely to be updating and adjusting this. Until she leaves, Venus' focus is more on fuelling your professional confidence, attracting opportunities and steering things in a lucrative direction. Meanwhile, in his first full month in direct motion in your work sector, Neptune is looking rather than moving forward. Neptune only turned direct at the end of last month and has been in direct motion for less than 48 hours as you move into the new month. Support between Venus and Neptune will create confidence on the job and career fronts and especially when it comes to a wait and see approach to work and job matters. It is the Sun's return to your work sector in February that gives Neptune time to build up speed and momentum but also time to work on your dreams for the future. It is when Jupiter returns to your work sector in May that he will use those dreams as his blueprints. This makes this a month for exploring and exploiting what you can on the career front now but while preparing for the future on the job front.
While it could feel like you have caught your second wind just as you are running out of year, this is more a chance to start revving your engines so you can shoot out of the gate in January. Mars has been in direct motion in your work sector for just over two weeks by the time you move into December but after two months in direct motion, he is both starting to pick up speed and fighting the drag from his retrograde phase. This has received a boost from the Sun's return to your income sector and even more so when Mercury returns there on 2nd December and Venus on 16th December. All will at some point during the month, form a friendly aspect to Mars, at the same time that his pace will steadily increase over the course of the month. Some of the best days of the month across the income, work and career fronts are likely to be from 5th December to 7th December, when the Moon makes its last visit to your career sector for the year. As well as fuelling your professional instincts and imagination, as the Moon moves through your career sector it will form a friendly aspect to the Sun and Mercury in your income sector and to Mars in your work sector. While the Moon is just passing through, this last visit for the year will be enough to energise the final weeks of this professional year. Meanwhile, the Moon will make its last visit to your work sector for the year and before Mars leaves from 22nd December to 24th December. With Mars leaving your work sector on 7th January and Venus leaving your income sector on 9th January, the Moon's interaction with both just as they are drawing closer there will be time over the holiday period to reflect on the valuable clues, hunches and insights delivered on the income and job front. This will give you time to prepare to hit the ground running when you move into 2021.
In every sense of the word, December is the waiting room for your 2021 professional year, the 'green room' where you wait while you prepare to go on stage and it has nothing to do with the fact that this is the final month of the year. Instead, it has everything to do with the fact that everything is set to come alive in the early weeks of January, with work and job matters firing up and then dominating the early months of 2021. It is a coincidence that this will coincide with the start of a new professional year, with a chance to push the 'reset' button in the early days of January. Mars returned to a playful and creatively charged part of your chart in June, something that should have put him six weeks away from your busy work sector. Instead, a two month retrograde phase has kept Mars here. Mars is back in direct motion, is picking up speed and is back on track to finally return to your work sector on 7th January. By coincidence, Uranus, who has been in retrograde motion in your work sector since August will turn direct on 14th January, a week after Mars' return, with Venus returning to your income sector on 9th January. This is when the dam will burst, with everything that has been held back set free and this is what you have a chance to prepare for in the final weeks of 2020. This also makes the Moon's final visits to your two professional houses for the year especially important. The Moon will make its last visit to your career sector for the year from 7th December to 9th December. This is also the Moon's last visit before Jupiter and Saturn leave your income sector and a friendly aspect to them and to Uranus in your work sector will make these some of the most important days of the month across the income, work and career fronts. The Moon will make its last visit to your work sector for the year, while Uranus is in retrograde motion and before Mars returns from 24th December to 27th December. This will give you time over Christmas to listen to your intuition, instincts and imagination.
Starting the month with the Moon in your work sector is always an advantage, especially as this comes just days after Venus not only left your career sector but ended all planetary activity on the career front for the year. At the very least this will allow you to begin the month with an intuitive read on work and job matters from the get go while in a 31 day month, this will give the Moon time to come full circle for a second visit. This means that this is not the Moon's last visit for the year but it could be one of the most significant. For the Moon doesn't just start the month in your work sector but as an eclipsing Full Moon. The lunar eclipse was technically on 30th November, in that this is when the shadow moved across the face of the Moon to create a supercharged Full Moon but until it leaves on 2nd December this is still in effect. A Full Moon can act as a trigger but a lunar eclipse even more so, mainly because it is a release for everything that has been building behind the scenes. The Moon itself is only here for a few days but the North Node, the force that turns this into a lunar eclipse, has been here since May. A lunar eclipse has a lot more pent up energy and momentum to release than an ordinary Full Moon. This gets the month off to an empowered start but by the time the Moon returns for its last visit to your work sector for the year, from 27th December to 29th December, it is in for a pleasant surprise. The Moon will not only return to find Saturn and Jupiter in your income sector but will make the first of many friendly aspects over the coming months and years. This will be the first sign of the positive income and job opportunities and developments that 2021 holds. Meanwhile, the Moon will make its last visit to your career sector for the year and since Venus left from 9th December to 11th December, bringing a valuable chance to check in.
While it is not unheard of to move into December with Venus or Mercury still in your career sector, to have both still here is more unusual, having last happened in 2012. Unlike the Sun, who maintains a steady and constant pace Venus and Mercury retrograde and that keeps them in the same part of the sky at the same time. When that happens, Venus and/or Mercury can lag behind. However, while Mercury retrogrades' three times a year Venus only retrogrades once every other year. Venus turned retrograde earlier in the year and Mercury last month and this is something that you get to benefit from in the closing weeks of this professional year. Mercury will leave your career sector on 2nd December but not before spending months rather than the 14 to 15 days he will normally spend here. This leaves you with the intellectually savvy edge to make these final weeks count while continuing to work on your professional game plan and resolutions for 2021. Venus, on the other hand, is here until 16th December, squeezing as much out of this professional year as she possibly can before leaving. As the last planet to leave your career sector in 2020 but also the first to return in 2021, Venus is working to fuel your professional confidence, attract opportunities and steer things in a lucrative direction. The Moon will make its last visit to your career sector for the year from 11th December to 13th December, ensuring your professional instincts and imagination are fuelled during Venus' final days. The Moon will move through your income sector from 2nd December to 5th December, creating what could be some auspicious days across the income, work and career fronts. By the time the Moon returns for its last visit to your work sector for the year, Venus will be gone from your career sector, but here from 29th December to 1st January, this will allow you to end 2020 and begin 2021 with an intuitive read on work and job matters.
Because the Sun will always spend the first three weeks of December in your career sector, this is always a professionally focused point of any year, with the solar spotlight on your career and professional situation, matters and options. However, because the Sun always leaves on the December solstice and is always gone by Christmas, this is often a time for tying up the loose ends of your professional year, ready to take your professional hat off over the holiday period. The bad news is that there won't be a chance to take your professional hat off this year but the good news is that it is for all the right and opportune reasons. The Sun will be joined by Mercury, who having being held back by a retrograde phase will finally return to your career sector on 2nd December. Mercury gives you the intellectually savvy edge and articulation needed to work smarter, get your head in the game, ideas on the table and the communication lines open but also to make choices, decisions and plans. The Sun and Mercury will both leave your career sector on 21st December, making this a focused period, where it is about exploring options, making decisions and approaching career matters in an objective and strategic way. This will help you prepare for the Moon's return from 13th December to 15th December and the total solar eclipse this will create on 14th December. This can generate a wave of new energy, momentum and potential but it can also act as a wildcard, opening doors where you didn't know there were any. With the Sun and Mercury leaving just days later this doesn't give you much time to explore what this might trigger but this is when the good news/bad news mentioned earlier comes it. Just two days later, held back by a retrograde phase Venus will finally return on 16th December and here until 9th January, will stay on to exploit anything the solar eclipse might trigger and take this with her into 2021.
