December 2021 horoscope: let go of unhealthy habits this Sagittarius season

TextGrace McGradeIllustrationGabrielle Rosenstein

Sagittarius season promises us a higher perspective, where we take all of the hardships, break-ups, and transformation we underwent in Scorpio season and choose a brand new direction

We’re closing out 2021 with a firework display of astrological configurations, as we enter Sagittarius season, undergo another eclipse, and then catapult into Venus retrograde. This promises to be an eventful holiday season. Neptune, planet of psychic insights, the imagination and dreams, stations direct at the beginning of  month, adding a dreamy air of unreality to December. Sagittarius season promises us a higher perspective, where we take all of the hardships, break-ups, and transformation we underwent in Scorpio season and choose a brand new direction. On December 4th, a Solar Eclipse in the sign of the Archer encourages us to pick a new perspective, and truly lean into new experiences. As always with eclipses, they are astrological wild cards that incite lasting life changes, and this one promises a fresh start – as long as we can pick a positive outlook.

Sagittarians are known for their appetite for adventure and eagerness to experience life as a perpetual journey. We can be steadfast and eager to restore faith an optimism to areas we have previously been cynical about. On the 13th, Mars enters Sagittarius, giving us itchy feet and making us vocal about our opinions. On the flipside, we have to watch out for a propensity to overshare and dish out unsolicited advice, believing that our opinions outweigh our fellows. It’s a time to adopt a more inclusive perspective, and set our sights on a new domain.

A Full Moon in Gemini on December 18th can shed light on hidden information, and amplifies our desire to communicate. Remember, in 2021 we had four retrogrades in air signs, encouraging us to speak our truth, even if we are hesitant to reveal our perspective. In the sign of the twins, we are curious, animated, and chatty – and encouraged to air out old emotions by processing them verbally.

Shortly thereafter, on the 19th, pleasure planet Venus stations retrograde in Capricorn. When Venus is in Capricorn, we are concerned with the longevity and practicality of our connections, our finances, and material achievement in the world at large. Here, we may be revisiting old flames to check if they have matured, and we are given a reality check on our financial habits. No-nonsense Capricorn has little tolerance for unfair power plays and time-wasters, so we may find ourselves having to reinstate boundaries with both our loved ones and our pocket books. As Venus conjoins Pluto towards the end of the month, expect for hidden information to come to light, as we deepen our psychological insights into our fellows.

On the 21st, the Sun enters hard-working Capricorn, and we are ready to harden our resolve for growth and let go of the unhealthy habits (some of which were procured by overindulgence in Sagittarius season.) Thankfully, the month ends on a calmer note, when Jupiter, planet of belief and abundance, enters dreamy Pisces. Here, we are able to surrender old emotional material and anchor in spiritual support.
