December opens with the washup of the lunar eclipse. You likely to speak your mind without much forethought. It’s one of your superpowers as an Aries but does come with certain responsibilities. The lunar eclipse emphasises the hidden/ subconscious factors of communication, particularly from early childhood education. You may realise there’s a gap in your learning/understanding or be driven forward by an insatiable curiosity
Led onwards by an accelerating Mars, you pick up the pace as December progresses and race towards the end of the year. There have been plenty of delays and frustrations, and now it seems there’s not a moment to lose. You feel the momentum and really want to get things done before 2021.
It’s a wise decision. You have a lot of energy and confidence that you can harness towards a specific goal – most likely the project or situation that has been a source of ongoing review and false starts since August. Back yourself on this and go for it!
The oomph of having your ruling planet in your own sign lasts until 7 January when Mars moves into Taurus. This turn things down for a boil to a simmer and turns your attention to your money. Your motivation to make money increases significantly in 2nd week of 2021 (preferably fast money). You might need to watch impulse buys in the January sales as you have a weakness for luxury – especially if they throw in a free set of steak knives. Financial risks are particularly tempting on the 21st Jan.
Mid-December brings an important solar eclipse that reboots your escape plans and opens fresh avenues for study, travel, and spirituality. This eclipse clears lingering dreams of travel or study and clears the way for a more inward-looking spiritual journey. The answers to your questions will be found within yourself, rather than the external world. Empty out and become a receptacle for unknown wisdom to flood in. On this blank slate, new stories will be written.
Another seed moment occurs on the solstice with the auspicious meeting of Jupiter and Saturn in your friendship sector. You are keen to grow serious long-term friendships and work with collective understanding towards shared goals. If you felt adrift in a sea of faces, this alignment is a wonderful omen for meeting people that both challenge you and help you grow.
Your relationship to your friends and groups you’re part of are a key theme of 2021. At times, you will experience the values clash with your friendship circle. While you may be tempted to agree to disagree (or perhaps even walk away), these relationships are ultimately supportive of what you want to achieve in the year ahead.
The Cancer full moon on New Year’s Eve sees the year out on an emotional high. Family or real estate matters come to a head and there is a release of subconscious intimacies. If you like to party, there may be a few tears as you farewell a memorable year.
Mid-January offers a bit of a lull inactivity, which may be welcome, or trigger flashbacks to the frustrations of Spring (or Autumn/Fall, if you’re in the northern hemisphere). You may feel more stable and resolute as Mars, your ruling planet, completes the third of three squares to Saturn. The difference now is that there’s not the same sense of urgency and you view the situation from a more grounded perspective.
There is also a new moon in Capricorn at this time, which offers a quiet strategic energy and a rebirth of your approach to career matters and your reputation. Use this new moon to let go of 2020, acknowledge the lessons, and plant the seeds the future growth.
The new moon in Leo at the end of January puts a social spring in your step. You’re hungry for ideas and knowledge and willing to work cooperatively to reach a collective goal. It’s creative and positive and encourages you to honour and contribute your own unique gifts.
