Relationships dominate the agenda this month, and they’re only getting deeper! Not only is the Sagittarius Sun heating up your partnership house until December 21, but a flurry of Capricorn activity—including a major Jupiter transit and a “ring of fire” solar eclipse—will end the year on a note of intensity and intrigue. Skimming the surface is no longer an option, Gemini. Heading into the new decade, you want the whole package or nothing at all, and you’re playing for keeps!
It all begins on December 2, when growth-driven Jupiter plunges into Capricorn until December 19, 2020, making a yearlong visit to your eighth house of intimacy, shared finances and merging. It’s an energy that’s quite different than your natural vibration—denser, heavier and more intense. You may be happier behind the scenes, especially since Jupiter will be joining structured Saturn and transformational Pluto in Capricorn. Your time may be spent doing serious research, for example, or engaged in a significant relationship that requires your undivided attention. Adventurous Jupiter in this sensual sector could bring a reawakened sexual appetite and a lusty attraction to match! You’re also growing emotionally, learning to be more transparent and to connect on a deeper, more vulnerable level.
Savvy investments fall under this domain. With roll-the-dice Jupiter here, you might just take the plunge and buy (or sell) real estate or put your money into a joint venture that yields hefty returns. Perhaps you’ll be the one backing a promising company or raking in passive income through an affiliate venture. The eighth house also rules large lump sums of cash, and this year you could receive a windfall through a loan, commission or an inheritance. You could also get serious about paying down debt, possibly with the help of an adviser. In the coming year, you may spend more than usual, but you can also make more. This is the domain of “other people’s money”—the kind you borrow, inherit or pool collectively—rather than the income earned by the sweat of your brow.
In order to multiply and maximize—whether that’s your money or your mojo—you’ll need to (mindfully) relinquish some control. That could happen quite unexpectedly around December 15, when Jupiter forms a rare trine to radical Uranus in Taurus and your twelfth house of healing and surrender. This could bring a major spiritual or emotional moment, or a time when you release a HUGE block that’s been keeping you spinning your internal wheels. Get ready for a lightning-bolt epiphany or three! You may be struck with an amazing idea that helps people and also brings in sustainable pay (why not do work that helps others, Gemini?).
A couple days prior, the stars throw you a cosmic coming-out party. On December 12, the year’s only Gemini full moon illuminates your first house of self, bring a passion project or birthday intention to fruition. The spotlight is on you and one of your solo endeavors. If you head to a party, don’t be surprised if you draw lots of attention with your witty words and powerful presence since this full moon makes you, well, full-on. This is a great day (and upcoming two weeks) to book any big-deal pitches or presentations as you’ll have no problem selling yourself!
Just make sure you can actually deliver what you promise. A T-square between the Sun, full moon and foggy Neptune could compel you to overdo it. You won’t be as aware of limits and boundaries today, so be careful about raising people’s expectations—and go easy on the hyperbole. Don’t tell someone that you feel lukewarm about that you’re “obsessed” with them, for example. They might just take your words literally, which will leave you with some awkward explaining to do.
The next day (December 13), Neptune will glide into a lovely trine with go-getter Mars in Scorpio and your sixth house of wellness and service. It’s a perfect moment for a holiday gathering that benefits a cause or to do some volunteer work before you head out for a glamorous event. You may also have a soul-stirring vision about a project or work venture that could make a big impact on the world at large.
On December 21, Capricorn season begins, and we may start to see less of you about town! As the Sun dives into the private and smoldering eighth house of your chart, you’ll be reserving your best attention for high-quality one-on-one encounters. Superficial and casual hangs aren’t really doing it for you now. You could also be deep in concentration with a detailed project.
Christmas and the days following carry strong partnership energy, in which things may become REALLY official! Not only are the Sun, Jupiter and Pluto in Capricorn on Christmas Day, but December 26 features a Capricorn new moon (solar) eclipse, which brings a turbocharged new beginning to this intense zone of your chart. This grand finale to the decade is an annular eclipse, also known as a “ring of fire” for the flaming outline the Sun leaves around the moon’s passing shadow. And on December 27, major expansion of your emotional, financial and sensual realms ignite as the Sun makes its once-a-year conjunction (meetup) with Jupiter—considered one of the year’s luckiest days by many astrologers.
New Year’s Eve continues on this intimate note as communicator Mercury joins the Capricorn confab. With the moon hanging out in Pisces and your status-driven tenth house, a small VIP soiree might be just what the stars ordered. The tenth house rules long-term goals, and with mystical Neptune hovering nearby, your manifesting powers are extra potent! Radar in on what you’d like to achieve in the coming year (and decade)—and be specific. With all that energy in your precise eighth house, you’ll want to define your target and strike! Cleaning the slate is also crucial. The eighth house rules death, rebirth and transformation, and sometimes a part of your life has to “die” for your soul to emerge in its highest form. As the calendar turns, you may make some definitive choices about the people, projects and processes that you leave behind in 2019 and which ones will usher you powerfully into 2020.
