Welcome to December, Leo! At the end of November, you fought your outgoing nature by laying low to avoid eclipse drama. As this hectic year comes to a close, stress levels are high. When communication planet Mercury enters bossy Sagittarius on Tuesday, December 1, people will not be afraid to say how they feel, even if they’re less tactful than they should be about it. You can keep your side of the street clean, Leo, and bite your tongue when haters get under your skin, but you can’t stop others from acting like assholes. Just try to remember that if someone is salty it probably has nothing to do with you, and try to let it go.
With your charismatic nature, you tend to be rightfully confident, Leo. However, when the powerful sun (which rules your sign) in Sagittarius squares Neptune in Pisces on Wednesday, December 9, your signature confidence is shaken. This transit can also affect our immune systems, and stress is known to weaken immunity. Spend this day doing things that make you feel good, like taking a bath, masturbating, or snuggling up to watch TV.
There is a new moon and solar eclipse in fellow fire sign Sagittarius. Usually, astrologers tell you to lay low during eclipses, because they can be dramatic. However, there is a trine, which is a favorable aspect, between your sun and Sagittarius’s sun. This energy can provide you a much-needed ego boost. If you find yourself compelled to reach out to crushes or partners, go ahead and make your move. New moons are a time for new beginnings, so use this powerful eclipse energy and that swagger of yours to make shit happen.
2020 has been one of the hardest years on record, but let’s be honest, the pandemic is likely not the first traumatizing experience that you’ve lived through. If underneath that great head of hair is a lifetime of hurt, much of it may have bubbled back to the surface in some way during this stressful year. A comet called Chiron, the wounded healer, goes direct on Tuesday, December 15. Trying a new form of therapy may very well be your best resolution because this transit encourages you to heal old wounds as we enter the new year.
On this same date, Tuesday, December 15, lover planet Venus enters confident Sagittarius, adding heat to your sex life. This could mean exploring new genres of porn or trying out a different role-playing scenario with your partner.
