2021 sure has been a long year, but without further ado, December is here, and it brings with it quite a mixed bag of events.
The month is characterized by a Venus and Pluto conjunction happening in Capricorn. This is happening in your 6th house of health, routine and service. There's no better word to describe a Venus and Pluto conjunction than an obsession. Venus transiting through the 6th can make us enamoured with a sense of duty, and it could also symbolize that you may be extra focused on physical appearance and overall wellness. Pluto will make that interest intense to the point where a skincare routine can turn into an endless quest for perfect skin. While navigating this transit, it would be wise to be aware that perfection is unattainable. Building a healthy relationship with your body comes from accepting some of its flaws as well. There are workable conditions, but some other details we just have to learn to love—as hard as hyper-photoshopped media might make it for us to achieve that.
The last Eclipse of the year and New Moon will be happening in your 5th house in Sagittarius. The 5th house is a place where fun and creativity run wild. Especially with the focus and will that comes from Sagittarius, this is the place where your ideas manifest. Still, this new lunar cycle might make it challenging for some of these creations to come to fruition. Mercury, also being involved in this equation, might make it difficult for you to find the right words to express yourself. That being said, this could mean that now is time to take things lightly and not be so focused on the outcome. Sometimes all we need to get rid of these creative blocks are a few moments of silence. Quietude itself can be enjoyable if we allow ourselves to see the value in it.
Later down the month, Mars will be square with Jupiter. This will be happening between your 4th and 7th house.
The focus here is family and intimacy. Especially around the holidays, the topic of the family can be a little tricky. It can be when all the drama that everyone avoided throughout the year comes out of nowhere, making some awkward moments. This transit is a sign no of being overly eager to bring everybody together. There's almost a sense of aggressively trying to solve everybody's problem in the pursuit of a flawless family reunion. You have to remember that sometimes it's essential to agree to disagree and open the space for contrasting views to coexist. Try to avoid trying to be the family's therapist or the load of everybody's emotions can get to you and will make the experience much less enjoyable.
After Mars is done with its square with Jupiter, it will change signs entering in Sagittarius. When that happens, the red planet will also be briefly conjunct with Ketu, the South Node of the Moon. With this happening in your 5th house, the drive for excitement may dwindle for a few days. Ketu tends to diminish any planet's power that comes within its grasp, so the planet of action and vitality being part of this conjunction can signify a general sense of low energy. This doesn't have to be bad. After such a long, challenging year, it's good to take some time to have fun doing nothing. Sagittarius is quite a spiritual sign, so it may be useful to connect with the pleasures spirituality can provide.
The Last Saturn and Uranus square of the year will be happening between your 7th and 10th house. Chances are, throughout the year, there have been some significant changes to how you approach your career and how you're perceived in the public eye. There's a sense of sudden new beginnings, and that might be taking a toll on some of your close relationships. Especially if you're somebody who works with a business partner, there's a chance that you will be put in a position you're not so used to in that work dynamic. This could include having to work through the holidays or having your job impede your enjoyment of this break in general. It will be crucial to set boundaries to not let your work take over your life. Remember, you also deserve some rest.
The Full Moon this month happens in Gemini and your 11th house. This brings chatty and friendly energy to the last bit of the month. There's a sense of regaining stamina and wanting to spend time with friends, exchanging ideas and making plans for the year ahead collectively. This Full Moon is very social, and it encourages you to get touchy and express your love for the people you appreciate verbally, even if it's through jokes and friendly disputes.
Adding to the good vibes of the Moon, Jupiter will finally ingress into Pisces, bringing prosperity and luck to whatever house it will be transiting through the next year. This is happening in your 8th house of other people's resources and sudden changes. There's a good chance of receiving some unexpected goods in the coming year. This could be money and the clearing of debt, but it could also mean resources to help you manifest success into your life. The 8th house is often associated with transformation, so expect positive change ahead.
