Welcome to December, star babies; it's the last month of 2021. December kicks off with the dreamy planet Neptune ending its retrograde, where it's been since Friday, June 25, on Wednesday, December 1. During Neptune retrograde, all signs had to identify the illusions or fakes in your life and then be okay with letting them go to make room for loyal friendships and healthier relationships.
During the new moon and solar eclipse in Sagittarius on Saturday, December 4, you may experience remaining shakeups if you held tight to unhealthy relationship patterns. Or, if you know who is worth your time and energy, spend the eclipse with them. Yes, it's a potentially messy time, but the stars are dropping surprise messages of good news during this transit. During the end of the year and holiday season, it's more important than ever to pay attention to good news and give thanks.
If you can, get meaningful conversations surrounding love and money out of the way during the first half of the month.
The skies are busy on Monday, December 13. First, the warrior planet Mars enters bold Sagittarius, putting everyone in an adventurous mood. While we're still living in a pandemic, travel is much easier this year. With Mars in Sagittarius, remember to mask up and practice safety precautions, but by all means, have fun and see family, chosen, blood, or both. Also, on Monday, December 13, the messenger planet Mercury enters responsible Capricorn. Again, this transit reminds us to protect ourselves and our loved ones during the holiday season.
A full moon in busy Gemini creates a night of manifestation on Saturday, December 18. This potent night helps up wrap up professional projects so that we can spend much of the remaining year with friends and family. If you can, get meaningful conversations surrounding love and money out of the way during the first half of the month. On Sunday, December 19, Venus, the goddess of love, money, and beauty, goes retrograde, where it will be until Saturday, January 29. While Venus is retrograde, it's also not a good idea to make significant changes to your appearance, such as dying your hair, getting a new tattoo, or having plastic surgery done.
On this same date, Sunday, December 19, the comet Chiron, known as the "wounded healer," ends its retrograde, where it's been since Thursday, July 15 goes direct. While Chiron was retrograde, the universe asked everyone to examine your old trauma that's getting in the way of your joy. Following in the themes from Neptune earlier this month, this transit once again asks you to spend time with those who deserve it and end relationships built on unhealthy attachment patterns.
Tuesday, December 21, brings the Winter Solstice, the shortest day of the year, and the start of the ambitious Capricorn season. But, before you get back to work in 2022, your last assignment of 2021 is to have as much fun as possible safely. The lucky planet Jupiter enters compassionate Pisces on Tuesday, December 28, bringing the perfect mixture of emotions and cheer to ensure that you have a great end to 2021. See you next year!
