The echoes of late November’s lunar eclipse encourage you to stay home and, forget about work and your public life for a while. You are hungry for home comforts and family time and will benefit from wandering in your own inner world. There are fascinating stories, if only you’d stop to listen.
With Mercury zipping through your career sector from 2nd Dec, your mind will wander back to work time and again. If writing and communicating part of your job description it could be a good time to publicise your work. Even a casual natter at a work Christmas do could help further your broader career ambitions. Venus follows Mercury through Sagittarius from 16 December further enhancing your popularity and reputation on the job.
Mind you, it’s those are very ambitions that are being cleansed and purified by the solar eclipse in mid-December. There are important questions to ask about your career aspirations and how to balance those goals with your private life and broad spiritual framework.
Your best work is being done behind the scenes, not in public. There’s serious long-term oomph being injected into your professional life as Jupiter and Saturn simultaneously moves into Aquarius. You won’t find the recognition and meaning you seek ‘out there’; meaningful sustained growth comes from within.
You must take care of the structures you are creating. There is a real risk that what you are building end up feeling like a gilt cage. Focus on sustainable growth within clearly defined limits. Limitations can be helpful, supportive, safe. Rewards will flow from contemplative time alone.
This taps into the broader theme of 2021. There is tension brewing between being alone (perhaps feeling isolated at times) and the desire to express yourself. Set aside structured time in your ivory tower to meditate, must and write. You are blessed by the muses and will channel for amazing ideas from beyond, but working this into your everyday life will be challenging.
Don’t worry too much about this until January, particularly as the full moon in Cancer on New Year’s eve encourages you to have some fun. Push those serious thoughts to one side and play – with a kid, like a kid – it doesn’t really matter as long as you enjoy yourself.
When Mars moves into your communication sector from 7 January, it’s action stations. Well, inside your head it is. Lots of mental activity and perhaps some lively debate. This isn’t the time to pick a fight with your neighbours or a sibling. Red rag, bull, you know how that goes. If conflict does spark up, your best bet is to stay calm and take a lot of notes.
Mercury’s meeting with your ruling planet, Jupiter, on 12th Jan (just before the new moon in Capricorn) suggest your best outcome will come from time alone to think quietly. It’s a reflective time the lunar cycle and the new moon stimulates a degree that was incredibly sensitised in 2020. You could do worse than look back on the year that was and let it all go.
Work those big ideas steadily in the second half of January to get a project over the line. There’s shocking news or technological breakthrough via your communication sector on the 23rd Jan. It’s a surprise that could blow your mind wide open to new possibilities. Or you drop your laptop at the local library. Mars-Uranus is unpredictable like that.
January comes to a close with a dramatic Leo full moon as the sun connects with Jupiter. Again, this has a strong work vibe. You picking up the theme? You’ll be doing a lot of thinking about the decisions you made in the past and the ones you’re making right now as Mercury retrograde begins in Aquarius. Listening to your ancestors and guides is critical.
