Practical or whimsical? You’ll take a helping of both, thanks. The decade ends on a social and experimental note, but one that’s trimmed with an edge of sensibility. Cementing your feet to the ground is the Sagittarius Sun, which is anchored in your second house of work, money and security until December 21. But a confluence of cosmic forces is gaining momentum in Capricorn and your expressive, clever third house—including Jupiter AND a solar eclipse. There are people to meet, conversations to have, and much flirting and flitting about to do! Getting in the zone with a single task could prove nearly impossible given all the distractions. Get those action items handled in bite-sized bursts, whether that means being intentional (try a Pomodoro Technique timer app to set a clear start and end for every to-do) or outsourcing so you can mix and mingle. Heading into 2020, it’s truly about who you know, Scorpio—so prioritize people!
All month long, you’ll have heaps of can-do fuel from energizer Mars, which is making its biennial visit to Scorpio until January 3. The red planet, which is your sign’s minor ruler, rocketed into your sign on November 19, giving you a triple-espresso shot of energy to power through the end of the decade. On December 13, Mars will form a gilded trine to magnetic Neptune, which is in Pisces and your passionate, expressive fifth house. This could draw somes buzzworthy fame or a sexy mistletoe encounter.
The main event occurs when Jupiter, the planet of luck and growth, swings into Capricorn on December 2, staying until December 19, 2020. All year long, Jupiter’s been in Sagittarius and your financial second house, keeping you extra-busy at work and hopefully revving up your revenue! Your expenses may have increased along with your earnings, but it’s been a banner year of growth. If you took a risk, kudos! This month, you could finally see it pay off. Since the second house also rules self-worth, this Jupiter cycle probably boosted your confidence and gave you a true sense of security—inside and out.
Now it’s time to take what you created in 2019 and share it with the world. Start spreading the news! Jupiter is in your third house of communication and community for the next 12 months, meaning you’ve gotta let the world know what you’re up to here. Stir some local excitement with a pop-up or another live event. Get the word out through social media, teaching and writing. For most of 2020, your mission is to market yourself and spread a message—and connect with kindred spirits. Collaborating will take your ideas to new heights, especially with someone whose synergistic skill set complements yours. You might start exploring new hobbies and neighborhoods, perhaps starting the hunt for the next place you’ll hang your fedora. Don’t rush to the real estate listings, though. Take short trips to cities you feel drawn to and stay for a couple days to see what it’s REALLY like to live there.
Jupiter takes about 12 years to complete a trip around the zodiac and return to each sign (it was last here from December 19, 2007, to January 5, 2009). In Capricorn, Jupiter is said to be 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 you take calculated risks and aim your ambitious arrows at achievable targets.
With Jupiter in this expressive zone, you won’t be an under-the-radar Scorpio for long. In fact, you might become the unofficial mayor and de factor party planner wherever you go. A fun and vibrant year awaits, especially if you open up to new people and ways of thinking. Shift your mindset and suspend those snap judgments. Unlikely new friends will enter your orbit—and they might be the people you’d normally write off at first glance.
Sparks could fly on December 15, when Jupiter forms a rare and electrifying trine to changemaker Uranus, which is in Taurus and your seventh house of relationships. A friendship or casual acquaintance could rocket into official terrain when you least expect it. Or, since both these planets rule freedom, a rock-solid commitment could suddenly become more fluid. Have things gotten too close for comfort? One or both of you may need a little extra breathing room. Let’s get real here, though: Too much of that and you’ll start to get anxious. Find a way to incorporate more independence into your bonds while still getting the intimacy you crave.
Speaking of intimacy, the December 12 Gemini new moon will beam into your eighth house of merging, joint ventures and sensuality. This could bring a sexy moment under the mistletoe—but not a lighthearted one! The eighth house is all about the mind-body-soulmate click, and this full moon wants it all. A sizzling connection that’s been building over the past six months could come together now. Shared financial endeavors are also in the spotlight. You could receive a payout or a large lump sum within two weeks of this lunar lift, one that will carry you into the new decade. Thinking about investing, buying or selling property or earning passive income? The Gemini full moon could present an opportunity to make your money work a whole lot harder for you.
The Capricorn extravaganza really kicks in on December 21, when the Sun enters this sign and activates your communication zone for a month. Get out and circulate, Scorpio! The social swirl gathers momentum and there won’t be too many quiet moments, especially with Jupiter, Pluto and (starting December 28) Mercury all in the Sea Goat’s domain.
On Christmas Day, the moon is hanging out in Sagittarius and your grounded second house, which is a great time to keep it simple. Keep the guest list closed (maybe just save a seat for the person with nowhere to go) and aim for an elegant dinner that’s nourishing and calm.
You’ll be glad you conserved your energy because the next day (December 26), the decade’s final (solar) eclipse arrives (https://astrostyle.com/learn-astrology/solar-and-lunar-eclipses/) 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. Exciting news could arrive, or you could have a conversation that changes the course of events in the coming six months. Out of the blue, an idea could strike—and if it does, be sure to jot it down. This could go much farther than you even imagine!
On December 27, the Sun and Jupiter make their annual conjunction (meetup), considered the luckiest day of the year by some astrologers. It’s certainly a powerful moment to speak your truth or get a message out. A sibling, neighbor or local project could be in the spotlight today.
New Year’s Eve will feature five planets in this convivial zone, so you’ll definitely want to get out and circulate! And with the moon and enchanting Neptune in Pisces, your fifth house of romance is also on fire. A midnight mistletoe moment, maybe—or one that rocks you all the way into the new decade? Under these spirited stars, you might just want to dance the New Year in. Surround yourself with uplifting and fun-loving people and leave the drama queens at home to watch the ball drop on TV. The skies are calling for celebration! No matter what’s going on in your life, there’s always something to be grateful for. For added power, speak your 2020 intentions aloud with a few close friends or someone who you know will fully support you in making them a reality.
