One last victory lap before you go into celebration mode? December’s planetary lineup is looking festive, and a long-overdue lightness awaits. It’s time to wrap a year of accomplishments and hard work, and to give yourself major props for what you’ve achieved. Throughout 2019, expansive Jupiter has been in its home sign of Sagittarius, bringing rapid growth to your tenth house of career and long-term goals. Translation: most Pisces have been BUSY! You may have risen into a leadership post or a prominent role, whether at work or in your family and community.
Jupiter’s presence made for an ambitious 2019 that also came with major responsibilities. Whew! As an empathic water sign, you need restorative breaks, and those may have been in short order. On December 2, Jupiter will exit the Archer’s court (more on that in a minute), but the Sun will linger here until December 21. Got a few milestones to hit before the decade ends? Use this “final countdown” to pursue those goals like you mean it. Jupiter won’t return to Sagittarius again for another 12 years. Knock one last home run out, then let the victory fest begin!
And here’s some great news: You don’t have to be lonely at the top anymore, Pisces. The main event occurs when Jupiter, the planet of luck and growth, swings into Capricorn on December 2 for just over a year, staying until December 19, 2020. Jupiter will join structured Saturn and transformative Pluto here, igniting your eleventh house of groups, technology and social action. Moving with a powerful crew, aligned around a common mission—that’s what will give your life meaning in the next 12 months.
You’ve grown up a lot in the past year, but let’s face it: too much “adulting” can wear down your soul. Have you felt chained to your desk or saddled with duties that zapped your creativity? No mas! Now, as Jupiter moves into your collaborative eleventh house, it’s time to lighten that load. Teaming up and sharing responsibilities will be so much more rewarding now, not to mention effective. Besides, you really shine when you adopt the role of compassionate catalyst (instead of the iron-fisted authority). Jupiter in Capricorn invites you to get in front of the pack and let that eleventh house idealism shine.
Jupiter takes about 12 years to complete a trip through the zodiac and return to each sign (it was last here from December 19, 2007, to January 5, 2009). In Capricorn, Jupiter is in “fall,” or its least comfortable position. It makes sense: Jupiter rules expansion and abundance, while cautious Capricorn sets up boundaries and limits. But once they settle their fundamental differences, these two forces can work well together, helping us take calculated risks and aim our ambitious arrows at achievable targets.
While Jupiter’s in Capricorn, you could get involved in a community project or something that involves media and technology. And your first taste of that could arrive on December 15, when Jupiter swings into a galvanizing trine with radical Uranus, the planet of sudden change and progress. Both of these freedom-seeking luminaries love to shake up the status quo, and with Uranus in Taurus and your communication sector, you could drop a viral message on the masses. Your words and ideas are powerful, even world-changing—and during this rare transit, we suggest you regard yourself this way.
You won’t be touching down at home base much until later in the month, Pisces. But a prime domestic day arrives on December 12, when the year’s only full moon in Gemini beams into your home and family zone. Use this lunar lift to square away final holiday preparations—or to enjoy some rest and bonding with your loved ones. Wrap presents, finish shopping or throw an intimate cocktail party chez Pisces before everyone disperses for the holidays.
Just manage people’s expectations—and don’t overdo it. The full moon will be locked into a tense square with your ruler, hazy Neptune, so it will be hard to keep firm boundaries with friends and family. Before you know it, you could get talked into hosting a fleet of out-of-town guests or organizing the Secret Santa exchange. Think twice before you sign up for that, Pisces!
The next day, December 13, Neptune glides into an auspicious trine with energizing Mars, which is in Scorpio and your expansive ninth house. It’s an amazing day to take a leap of faith or put your message out into the world—in a big way. You could be inspired to travel or sign up for a workshop. With impulsive Mars and fantasy-spinner Neptune united, you won’t feel like looking before you leap. Go for it, Pisces!
The Capricorn extravaganza really kicks in starting December 21, when the Sun enters this sign and activates your social and future-oriented eleventh house for a month. Now, you’re ready to hold court at the holiday gatherings. Set the work aside and go commune with the people!
On Christmas Day, the moon will hang out in Sagittarius, which could put you in more traditional spirits. Your mind is on the future, and you might set aside a little time to write intentions or map out a few plans. The next day (December 26), the decade’s final (solar) eclipse arrives along with the Capricorn new moon. This one is an annular eclipse, also known as a “ring of fire” for the flaming outline of the Sun that appears behind the moon’s passing shadow. This could bring a major shift to your inner circle, or a new alliance that becomes a defining association in the year ahead.
Pay attention to the people you’re around as 2019 closes out—and the ones you meet! On December 27, in the tailwind of the solar eclipse, the Sun makes its annual meetup with expansive Jupiter—a once-a-year connection that some astrologers consider the “luckiest day of the year.” A virtual friendship could turn into something bigger, or you might be invited to participate in a collaboration that gets your pioneering ideas out into the wider world.
New Year’s Eve is yours for the taking, as the moon and your ruler Neptune are both in Pisces! Put your personal goals and dreams on the front burner when you set intentions. And while you’re at it, no going along with plans that don’t excite you. This decade-turning NYE, you’re in charge of entertainment. Don’t worry—you’ll have plenty of eager friends happy to join along, as FIVE planets—the Sun, Mercury, Jupiter, Saturn AND Pluto all cluster into Capricorn and your convivial eleventh house. With this humanitarian sector energized, you might put in a couple hours of volunteer work before heading out, or combine do-gooding with celebration by attending a benefit party as you ring in 2020. Whatever you do, adopting a communal spirit will prepare you for the team-spirited energy that will usher in the new decade. The more the merrier, Pisces!
