After the deep transformation of Scorpio season comes the expansive and wise Sagittarius.
Sagittarius is symbolized by the Archer in Astrology, with his bow pointing upward pointed
towards the broader vision for humanity. This is the season to integrate the shadow work you’ve done during Scorpio season, and step forward with a higher perspective, using your past challenges as wisdom. Keep this in mind for your December monthly mantras.
A Brief Examination
On December 1st, Mercury, the planet ruling over our communication and thought moves into
the expansive sign of Sagittarius, joining the sun. This can push us to face our limiting beliefs
and old thought patterns that have been holding us back. There is also a heavy focus on our
locality and immediate surroundings due to restrictions on international travel and movement.
We can feel energized and ready to charge forward and ask questions later as we move
towards the middle of the month. On December 10th, the Sagittarius sun will form a
harmonious aspect called a trine with Mars in Aries, and there is a powerful solar eclipse in the
sign of Sagittarius on December 14th. This will anchor in new beliefs, giving us the ability to see
above our current realities. Expect clarity in terms of the long-term vision in your life.
Shortly after on December 16th, Saturn, the ruler of lessons and tradition moves into the
radical sign of Aquarius as well as Jupiter on December 19th. This is one of the most pivotal
planetary shifts of the year, culminating in the Jupiter and Saturn conjunction on December
21st which also marks the start of the Winter Solstice and shift into Capricorn season. A
conjunction occurs when planets make a direct connection in the same sign. This
unprecedented planetary shift will trigger societal, cultural, and structural changes to occur for
the world for some years to come.
