Welcome to December, the final month of the hell-storm that has been 2020. The holiday season tends to be stressful anyway, but this year is unlike any we’ve ever experienced, as many of us are changing up our holiday traditions to accommodate for the pandemic. Thankfully, when communication planet Mercury enters optimistic Sagittarius on Tuesday, December 1, it becomes easier to find joy despite the disruptions. You may start to feel ready to plan safe ways to see one another.
But don’t work yourself too hard trying to make everyone happy, because the last thing anyone needs is more stress. When the sun in stubborn Sagittarius squares Neptune in dreamy Pisces on Wednesday, December 9, you may be feeling a bit insecure, so lay low. Marathon a new TV show, cozy up with a mug of tea, and get enough sleep. Make sure you’re taking care of you, above all.
If Sagittarius could be summed up in one word, it’s “fun.” During the middle of the month, there’s a new moon and solar eclipse in Sagittarius on Monday, December 14, encouraging us all to do what we can to let go of our worries and make room for some joy. Try and focus on having a good time without making any major commitments; you don’t need to take on any new responsibilities right now.
Hardworking Capricorn season begins on Monday, December 21, the same date as the winter solstice. Capricorn isn’t just all work; this sign also goes all-in on play when they’re off the clock. Yes, there’s a pandemic going on, but you can get creative about how you spend your time. Set aside the caring full moon in Cancer on Tuesday, December 29 to catch up on sleep and turn up the self-care. New Year’s Eve is extra special this year, because on Thursday, December 31 the moon in bold Leo opposes both Jupiter and Saturn in revolutionary Aquarius, sending signals of hope that 2021 will be a more uplifting year.
