Sagittarius season finds you unusually serious this year—and ready to make some power moves as you prepare for the new decade. That’s not to say you’ll skimp on the festivities, though! After all, the Sun is in Sagittarius (#BirthdaySeason) until December 21, morally obligating you to double down on the revelry since you were born during holiday high season. But this year, you’ll bid adieu to your ruler, Jupiter, who’s been making its once-every-12-years visit to YOUR sign since November 8, 2018.
On December 2, the red-spotted gas giant will move into Capricorn and your second house of work, money and security for a full year (until December 19, 2020), joining structured Saturn, transformational Pluto and at the end of this month, a “ring of fire” eclipse. Get ready to shift into a more intentional and practical mode—for the foreseeable future!
Truth be told, you’re probably ready for life to get a touch more predictable. No matter how it played out, 2019 has been one wild ride for the Archers! With expansive Jupiter in your sign all year, you kicked off a fresh 12-year chapter of your life. Even for a sign as adventurous and up for anything as yours, it’s been equally dynamic and disorienting! All year long, you’ve been experimenting with a new approach, identity or way of life. You’ve tossed metaphorical spaghetti against the wall to see what sticks and gambled on several ventures, some of which panned out and others that didn’t.
Now it’s time to sort the crops and pick a few winners—or even to whittle it down to just one. Focus on that mission and build, build, build. Jupiter in your second house of productivity and profit is a year to hustle and lay down some bricks. What will bring the most ROI for your time, money and energy investment? Embrace the “less is more” ethos as you move into 2020, even if it’s counterintuitive to your astro-DNA. While you’re at it, infuse some of the “slow” movement into your lifestyle.
Jupiter was last in Capricorn from December 19, 2007, to January 5, 2009. Scroll back to that era, and you may see some repeating themes. Did you change jobs or shift career paths? Was it a prosperous year or a time when you got into a stable relationship? Did you discover the adventure and joy in the simple things or ways that security could also set you free? Between now and late 2020, you could relocate or travel for work, get engaged (or into a healthy relationship pattern) and make more money than you’ve seen in years (what recession?). But you may need to make a few adjustments as Jupiter is in “fall” (i.e., its least comfortable position) when it visits Capricorn. It makes sense! Jupiter is all about expansion and go-with-your-gut risk-taking while the Sea Goat’s M.O. is to be cautious and discerning.
On December 15, Jupiter will form a rare trine to innovator Uranus, which is in Taurus and your sixth house of daily tasks, wellness and helpful people. With this dynamic duo in earth signs, your material world is up for an exciting shift. Ready to revolutionize your work processes, blast into a new pay grade or revitalize health kick? Jupiter and Uranus are the two most liberated planets, and their joint campaign for freedom could catapult you far outside ANY boxes. Wear protective gear today, because that glass ceiling is about to be shattered, hardcore! If you’ve got self-imposed barriers, prepare for a “mindset makeover.” Self-defeating habits will be powerless in the face of any excuse or limiting belief. Obstacles: out of the way!
And you won’t have to do it alone, either. The Jupiter-Uranus trine arrives in the wake of the December 12 Gemini full moon, which lands in your partnership house. A major relationship could be sealed—whether that’s a holiday proposal to make a romance official or inking a business collaboration. This full moon is the culmination of events sparked at the June 3 Gemini new moon and that have been building to this crescendo all summer and fall. Full moons can also bring turning points, so it’s possible one relationship will end or change its terms over the next two weeks. Stay open.
With a Mars-Neptune trine in your serendipity sectors on December 13, the universe is definitely operating on your behalf. Forcing an outcome will be a mistake. If a situation doesn’t flow with ease and grace, consider that it might not be the right thing for you. That said, you should also consider where your own stubbornness is the culprit. Are YOU the reason for blocks or uphill battles? Try to step back—the illuminating full moon will help!—to see where your own denial or avoidance might be causing confusion and delays. The middle of December is THE moment to clean up messes with other people and pivot into more effective ways of communicating your needs.
You’ll get your feet planted on terra firma starting December 21, when the Sun moves into Capricorn and your stabilizing second house for a month. Talk about a Sea Goat Summit! El Sol will join Jupiter, Saturn AND Pluto in this grounding sign for the rest of the year. You should get pretty clear-eyed about your 2020 resolutions in short order.
On Christmas, the moon moves into Capricorn, too, culminating in a solar eclipse on December 26. Talk about a powerful note to close out the decade! This will be an annular solar eclipse—also known as a “ring of fire” for the flaming outline of the Sun that’s visible around the passing moon’s shadow. Where have you been hiding YOUR fire, Sagittarius? Expect it to peek out as the year draws to a close. On December 27, the Sun and auspicious Jupiter make their once-a-year meetup, which some astrologers consider the luckiest day of the year. For you, it’s an invitation to take a leap of faith around your financial or material future. Are you expressing your highest potential…and getting paid accordingly? If not, where can you lean in to Jupiter’s gifts of honesty and outspokenness and prepare to make that big ask?
The multi-car Capricorn train continues chugging along as the calendar turns. On New Year’s Eve, the Sun, chatty Mercury, Jupiter, Saturn and Pluto are all aboard. If there was ever a moment for a luxurious celebration where you dress in your finest—or just enjoy a simple, grounding ritual and set some powerful intentions—this is it. Your second house rules the five senses, so delight all of yours with great music, tantalizing tapas, an unforgettable outing and indulgence on every level. There’s a new decade to usher in, and you deserve to do that with style! With the moon in Pisces and your cozy, domestic fourth house, you could find yourself hosting this first-class fete at Chateau Sagittarius—or adorned for revelry at someone else’s well-appointed home. If you’re flying with a plus-one, book a boutique hotel, make reservations for the chef’s tasting menu and enjoy all the indulgent earthly delights your pleasure-loving sign can handle! There will be work to do in the new year—lots of it—so get your playtime in before the ball drops at midnight…and everything else starts going up!
December 11: Venus-Saturn meetup
Just in time for the holidays, the love planet holds a private conference with stable Saturn in your grounded second house. You can get confirmation, commitment—and as a result of that, confidence—by having a loving discussion about what you both want in a relationship. Solid couples can initiate productive conversations about money and long-term plans. Single? If you’re seeking a keeper, don’t settle for a player.
