New Moon Solar Eclipse in Sagittarius, December 3-4, 2021

Flying by the seat of our pants is not the best idea on this New Moon Solar Eclipse at 12° 22’ Sagittarius 3-4 December 2021, 11:44PM PST. More than the other signs, Jupiter ruled Sagittarius is willing to lean on luck and enjoy taking the occasional risk. On this lunation the Sagittarius Sun, Moon and Mercury are widely sextile Saturn in Aquarius and tightly inconjunct the ever unpredictable Uranus in Taurus. Saturn does help stabilize the situation but it doesn’t provide enough ballast to offset Uranus. We must focus on the basic practicalities that we need to make our own luck. Either that or call our favorite person with plenty of earth in their charts for advice! Remember Mercury is still close enough to the Sun to lack perspective.

The planet for making things happen is Mars, and it is currently in competent Scorpio. Mars in Scorpio represents the earth and water contingent on this lunation as well as being the most aspected planet. It is sextile the Venus-Pluto conjunction in Capricorn, trine Neptune in Pisces and square Jupiter in Aquarius. This gives us enough tools to forge ahead. The Venus-Pluto conjunction in Capricorn practically defines the ability to determine accurate value at a deep level, and when hardworking Scorpio and Capricorn team up, no stone will be left unturned in the process of uncovering the truth needed for making smart choices.

The Mars-Neptune trine is perfect for smoothing out the rough spots on our path as long as we go with our intuition and exercise compassion. When we have to deal with the fallout of Mars square Jupiter, we’ll need all the help we can get. The Mars-Jupiter square is another example of why being as thorough as possible (Mars in Scorpio) instead of skipping important steps is necessary. Jupiter in Aquarius is very idealistic and so eager to leap into the future, it can overlook things such as why an in depth cost analysis is critical for our projects working in the long term.

We’re at the point in time when Saturn in Aquarius is making a waxing square to Uranus in Taurus, exact at 11° on December 23-24 for the last time. This aspect will be an active presence in lunations from now until the end of January. Perhaps it is time to redefine what freedom means. It certainly doesn’t mean abdicating all responsibilities to the other people living within our collective. In the end, finding a balance between being our own autonomous person and yet taking an active role in supporting our fellow travelers is necessary. Expressing care and compassion for others is part of what keeps us real.

New Moons are traditionally a time to look to the future and start making plans accordingly. On this New Moon Solar Eclipse in Sagittarius with its Uranus in Taurus twist, we might want to take extra care to plan for as many contingencies as possible rather than trusting to luck. Think of it as traveling when Mercury is retrograde! Being prepared and flexible is the way to go. There are bound to be frustrating moments in the days ahead, so please remember to practice patience, kindness and tolerance. Peace and love to all.

Pisces Horoscope December 2021

Pisces, aurora

As December begins, the Sun is in Sagittarius, the star sign at the peak of your horoscope. Talk planet Mercury is here too up until the 13th, lighting up your career & vocation sector. Plus, action planet Mars takes over from Mercury in Sagittarius on the 13th where it remains until January 24, 2022. One way or another, December could turn out to be a busy and significant month for you.

This part of your horoscope rules your status and reputation too. You may be adding letters to your name, tying the knot or making your mark in your chosen profession.

Solar Eclipse

There is another major planetary event which you need to factor in. On the 4th, there’s a New Moon Solar Eclipse in Sagittarius.

This eclipse is part of an eclipse cycle that began in June 2020 and completes this month at the Full Moon in Gemini on the 19th. This is significant for you because Gemini & Sagittarius are the star signs which represent the foundations of your horoscope and, therefore, your life.

Gemini is at the base of your horoscope ruling your home and family, your past and where you come from. Whereas, Sagittarius is at the peak of your horoscope ruling your career and vocation, your future path and where you’re heading.

As eclipses symbolise change, it’s likely that you’ve been in transition in either or both of these key areas of your life. In fact, it would be unusual to be in the same place or the same job you were in at the beginning of this eclipse cycle .

Think about the symbolism playing out and look at what’s changing in your life. It may be that you have a major decision to make about where you live. Or, a tense situation to deal with concerning a parent or member of your family. Alternatively, your next steps may be changing and shifting as work could take you elsewhere.

Traditionally, you’re wise to wait a few days after an eclipse before taking action. Allow the shadow of the eclipse to move away to reveal a new picture.

With lucky Jupiter in the mix on the 11th & 20th, these could be ideal dates to take a risk and play big. Jupiter is your traditional ruling planet so see what opens up in your life and where you might be ready to trust your luck and be spontaneous.

Jupiter Enters Pisces

The big news for you this month is the fact that your ruling planet Jupiter, the planet of luck, opportunity and good fortune is on the move.

This is always significant for you but this year especially so, because Jupiter returns to your star sign Pisces on the 29th. Jupiter will remain here until May 10, 2022. And, you’ve already experienced Jupiter’s move through Pisces from May 13 to July 28, 2021. Look back to this period to see what you started.

Jupiter is the biggest planet in the universe and represents all that’s expansive in life. This is the planet of freedom, encouraging you to let go of the ties that bind and anything or anyone who holds you back in life.

When Jupiter’s in full flow, you want to see the world and save the world. Jupiter rules travel, education, spirituality, philosophy and philanthropy. It calls you out into the world and reminds you of your global connections.

What’s not advised when Jupiter is strong in your horoscope is to play small or stay close to home. Jupiter rewards bold behaviour and loves the free-spirit, the explorer, the entrepreneur, the lover of life.

Jupiter in Pisces will expand your caring and compassionate nature, your kindness and generosity. Jupiter is linked to truth and humanity so be true to your beliefs.

Do something special towards the end of the month to mark Jupiter’s return to your star sign. It might be a social event or taking part in an online global conference or workshop.

Notice where you feel out of sorts mid-month – key dates 7th & 11th – and whether Jupiter’s energy brings more light and faith back into your life by the end of the year.

Venus Retrograde

Mid-month brings a shift in energy too as an important planet turn retrograde on the 19th, Venus. Venus is the planet of relating and currently in Capricorn and your friendship and group sector.

Don’t go it alone now. Instead, share your workload or reach out to other people. The Sun joins Venus in Capricorn on the 21st, the day of the Solstice and talk planet Mercury is here from the 13th.

This is where to shift your focus, ask friends for advice, join a network or group and make connections online and offline. Work alongside people you care for and respect, work in an environment you love. Or, do work that benefits others.

Venus’ shift of direction coincides with a powerful conjunction with Pluto. These two planets meet on the 11th & 25th. This combination could flag up an ending or loss, perhaps a club closing or a friend who moves away. Whatever happens in your life, be aware that feelings are likely to be intense, even obsessive.

Notice whether you feel jealous of others or where you’re holding on to tight to acknowledgement or appreciation. If you sense that your motivations are out of balance, take a step back and view your friendships or relationships from a more distant perspective while Venus is on go slow until January 29, 2022.

Venus Retrograde Do’s & Don’ts

  • Venus is retrograde from December 19, 2021 to January 29, 2022
  • Traditionally, it’s not the best time to marry, invest or have cosmetic surgery when Venus the planet that rules love, money & beauty switches direction.
  • Put off major love & money decisions until Venus turns direct late January.
  • Use this Venus retrograde phase to wait, be patient, consider your love or money options, go into couples therapy, learn more about yourself and what you want when it comes to love & relationships.
