Ready to own the new decade, Aries? December starts on a buoyant yet businesslike note. The Sun visits Sagittarius and your exuberant ninth house until December 21 while a cluster of Capricorn planetary activity (including Jupiter and one grand-finale eclipse!) hits your goal-focused tenth house with a serious agenda. Bring the Sagittarius spirit of expansiveness and wide-eyed curiosity to the office, or take a leap of faith on a grand goal that will carry you into 2020 and beyond.
But (power-) suit up, Ram: There’s major work ahead! On December 2, Jupiter, the planet of expansion, growth and good fortune, will launch into Capricorn and your ambitious tenth house until December 21, 2020, kicking off a year of sweet success. This could be one of your loftiest career years in more than a decade because Jupiter only visits each sign every 12 years. From a big-deal promotion to a leadership opportunity to greater clarity about your life goals, Jupiter has you in it to win it.
And that’s not all! Jupiter will join up with pragmatic Saturn and transformational Pluto, which have both been in Capricorn all year. You’ve been working so hard in 2019 to break ground on your intentions. But with cautious Saturn in the mix, it’s taken longer than you like. On top of that, Jupiter’s been in Sagittarius and your visionary, globe-trotting ninth house since November 2018. It’s been hard to stay disciplined—much less in a single geographic location! Rather than gain traction, you’ve been in a state of dis-traction! Well, now that Jupiter’s in the mix, your “shiny object syndrome” gives way to focused, aspirational adventures.
Is it time to take that traditional job or settle into a groove? While the tenth house tends to be more corporate and “C-suite” traditional, you don’t necessarily have to be stuck in the stuffy corner office. You’re a pioneering Aries, and we have no doubt you’ll redefine “running the world.” The tenth house also rules men and male-identified people, especially father figures. A guy in your life could assume an important role, or you may evolve into a new, more adult relationship with your dad over the coming months. This new Jupiter phase will be all about stepping into your own authority.
One day to watch is December 15, when Jupiter will form a flowing trine to disruptor Uranus in Taurus and your second house of work and money. An amazing opportunity could come out of left field, so stay alert. This one could be big and world-changing, just the way you like ‘em! Jupiter and Uranus are two of the most liberated and individualistic planets in the solar system, so one of your original concepts could get supersized now.
Prior to that, on December 12, the Gemini full moon beams into your third house of communication. Got a message to deliver? La luna hands you the megaphone and the entire PA system. News you’ve been awaiting might finally come. A sibling, coworker or neighbor may figure into events today, or there could be lots of activity locally. Got something to promote or an initiative to spearhead? Tap your community as a resource. From a pop-up appearance or trunk show to an impromptu day of volunteering, this full moon sets the perfect stage for a mission-driven neighborhood event or an email blast that spreads the word about a worthwhile cause.
Your empire-building drive kicks into high gear starting December 21, when the Sun shifts into Capricorn for a month, joining Jupiter, Saturn and Pluto. Christmas celebrations may have a more traditional twist since this sign is all about spinning the classics rather than making a remix. And on December 26, the decade’s final eclipse arrives—a solar (new moon) eclipse in Capricorn that will supercharge your goals and send you rocketing to the top in the next six months. If you haven’t been totally clear-eyed about what’s next, expect your vision to come together fast! This one is an annular solar eclipse, also called a “ring of fire” for the blazing outline of the Sun that appears as the moon passes over it. And it’s aptly named, considering the internal trial by fire you may go through as your freedom-loving sign fully and deeply commits to your loftiest goals!
The stars will incentivize you to do that even more as the year closes out. December 27 features the annual Sun-Jupiter conjunction in Capricorn, which many astrologers consider the luckiest day of the year. The blend of solar-powered confidence and can-do Jupiter’s enthusiasm empowers you to take a (calculated) leap of faith. Make that audacious ask. Summon the courage to really think big!
Wrap that all into your midnight wishes on New Year’s Eve, when the Sun, Mercury, Jupiter, Saturn and Pluto (wow!) all convene in Capricorn and light your ambitions on fire. As they gather in this VIP sector, you might love a public black-tie celebration or a private party somewhere exclusive. Plus, you’ll have a side of manifesting magic to tap into with the moon hanging out in Pisces and your twelfth house of enchantment.
With la luna hovering close to mystical Neptune, there’s an “ask, believe, receive” energy in the air. Your concrete desires combine with a splash of Law of Attraction-style mojo under this starmap. If ever there was a night to do a vision board or an intention-setting ritual before you paint the town, this is it! The twelfth house rules closure, so consider what you DON’T want to drag into the new decade—and perhaps ritualize that as well. Say farewell to all that no longer serves you so you can truly make a fresh start in 2020!
