The year is about to end, and as we sit down to reflect on the events that transpired this year, the planets get ready to deliver an exciting grand-finale.
Venus and Pluto will be conjunct in Capricorn, bringing passion and desire to a month already full of events. However, the fact that this conjunction is happening in a sign ruled by Saturn can be quite enjoyable. Capricorn is not usually a sign associated with fun and extravagance. Much contrary, here is where hard work and perseverance are exalted. This could symbolize that the luxury that Venus desires is one that we will have to achieve through hard work and patience. This could manifest within the collective a sense of restlessness and trying to sneak around to do what we wish. There's a certain air of teenagehood thrill to this transit.
The Solar eclipse in Sagittarius invites us to cultivate our will to manifest the adventures of our dreams. Additionally, the eclipse will be closely conjunct with Mercury, hinting towards a need to have a humble attitude going forward. Though Sagittarius embodies the concepts of certainty and conviction, Mercury is here to remind us that truth is more complicated than it may seem. It's important to remember that we do not know all the answers yet, but that doesn't mean that the mind's darkness is perpetual. Keeping an open mind and being receptive to other people's truths without judgement is what we need at the moment.
The ruler of this Eclipse (Jupiter) will also be squaring Mars shortly after the lunation. This transit symbolizes our need to grow free of the things that have been tying us down. Recklessness and disruptive behaviour might be distinct aspects of this cycle. With that being said, we must think before we act. This is a transit of emotional aggression and disregard toward authority. Navigating these energies with care and patient will be crucial in avoiding unnecessary discord as the year ends. On a positive note, this transit is also here to break many barriers, especially as Jupiter is almost out of Saturn's restrictions and boundaries. It has been all of 2021 as the planet transited through Saturn's own sign: Aquarius.
After Mars is done wreaking havoc with Jupiter, it will change signs and enter Sagittarius. As the red planet enters the Fire sign, it goes conjunct with the South Node of the Moon. There's a karmic significance to this transit, and all of the power struggles, violence, and anger that Mars can bring gets negated by the South Node, Ketu's firm grasp. Though anything involving the nodes is always a double-edged sword. Having these energies suppressed doesn't mean that they cease to exist. As a collective, we have to try our best to channel all this fire energy towards positivity and inspiration instead of rage and destruction.
The Last Saturn and Uranus square of the year brings some resolution to the many revolutions (metaphorical or otherwise) that happened in 2021. Barriers continue to be broken, and a general sense of defiance is still in the air. Yet, since Mars is not involved in Saturnian matters anymore, the aggression the red planet brings to the table is being channelled somewhere else. The good news is that without a hothead, this transit allows for strategizing for the future. Aquarius brings mental energy that helps the collective look at the flaws in the ways things are currently running to fix them. With Uranus being in the mix, these solutions may be unorthodox. Still, it points towards innovative ways of building a future.
The Full Moon of the month happens in Gemini. This is all about duality and reconciling past disagreements. There will be a general sense of needing to debate and get the facts straight. The Full Moon might drive this quest to go to extreme downloads of information that may overwhelm some unprepared to have their views challenged. The best way to navigate this Moon is to expect the unexpected and be playful and accepting of whatever comes our way. There may be a sense of needing to pick sides, but the victorious will be those who will be holding the space for dichotomies and paradoxes to be as they are.
The year comes to a close on an excellent note with the long-awaited Jupiter ingress into Pisces. This is a transit that will last for most of 2022, and it will bring positivity to mitigate some of the damage that happened in 2021. We can all get a hint as to how this transit will affect us in the year ahead by revisiting memories from Spring/Summer this year. Jupiter entered Pisces briefly before it went retrograde and went back into Aquarius. You can interpret this as a foreshadowing of some sort. Try to think about how you grew and gathered blessings throughout those months, as those will become much more significant in the year ahead.
