The week’s astrology overview kicks off with the sacred winter solstice on the same day the Sun moves into the Earth sign of Capricorn. Capricorn season promises a time of family, friendship, and enough energy to get your work done.
On that day, we also have a rare celestial event that hasn’t happened since 1623, the Great Conjunction of Jupiter and Saturn.
The feeling of coming home to yourself will fill you with inspiration, and the solstice can help you reawaken your spark, while the Great Conjunction helps you feel motivated to expand your horizons and be more of your true self.
For the rest of December 2020 astrology, the planet of romance, Venus, is in the Fire sign of Sagittarius.
This gives you the confidence to say how you’re feeling and the courage to get out of your comfort zone and meet someone new. This week is leading up to the last big changes for your 2020 forecast, and those changes could be finding true love if you keep your heart open and put yourself out there.
What else can I expect this week from the stars?
A Christmas miracle may arrive a few days after December 25th because the Full Moon will be in effect starting December 28th.
Knowing that the planets affect the energy of the Universe, really use this week to focus on your heart’s deepest desire. Trust that it will show up and direct your energy towards making it happen.
Overall, this week has lots of creative energy to help you get where you want to be, lots of magic to fill your heart with joy, and perfect planetary placements to help you enjoy the holidays!

Monday, December 21
Capricorn – Slow and steady energy helps you feel stable as you start your week. You are inclined to take your time if you’re making last-minute gift choices because you want to make smart financial choices.
Pisces -We want to take time to notice the little moments of joy today. We might find joy in unexpected places if we are open to experiencing life as it unfolds.
Sun enters Capricorn – The Sun moves through Capricorn until January 19th. During Capricorn season, we are given a jolt of motivation to stick to our long-term goals. We put more energy into long-term relationships and nurture our big dreams and plans.
Be careful not to burn both ends of the candle, and if you need help, don’t try to be the hero.
Winter solstice – This is officially the shortest day of the year, and from this point on, the days will start to become slightly longer, helping us emerge from the cocoon of winter, where we were able to rest and transform.
Traditionally, this is a mystical time where our spirit is reborn, and we can feel hope come alive in the collective once again. We bring this hope with us into the coming cycle of 2021 to continue to evolve on our soul’s journey.
Jupiter in Aquarius conjunct Saturn in Aquarius – This Great Conjunction will only happen once in our lifetime. During this moment, the two largest planets will be 1/10th of a degree apart, lighting the sky and awakening a new grounding into the expansion of technology and innovative ideas for your life in the year ahead.
Expect to feel a mixture of wanting to expand and needing to make sound judgments that will allow you to reach your biggest goals. This will likely kick off a new theme of positive growth for you in 2021 and usher in more positive shifts in society.
