The Sun enters the sign of Sagittarius on November 21st at 7:52 p.m., Mountain Time. Sag is a fire sign and is associated with the largest planet of them all, Jupiter. That combo is perfect for the adventurous and enthusiastic Sagittarius. This sign is the best traveler of them all, which has been put on hold during this last year. How is Sag going to travel now? In their minds. Sag loves to learn and expand their horizons, no matter what. Typical occupations for this fire sign are college professors, broadcasters, explorers, translators and publishers.
We are in an Eclipse season now, which happens twice a year. There will be a Total Eclipse of the Sun on December 4th, which will only be seen in southern Australia and Antarctica. Even if we don’t see the Eclipse, we all feel it. During a Solar Eclipse, the Moon moves in between the Earth and the Sun, blocking the light of the Sun. I have been lucky enough to have seen a Total Solar Eclipse, which was life changing for me. I just saw the solar system differently after that amazing experience. This is the time to reevaluate your life and see what is no longer needed. Often big changes occur exactly on the day of the Eclipse, so be prepared. There are always patterns to release, which is quite freeing actually. Plan for a release.
Venus will be doing a retrograde that starts on December 19th and doesn’t end until January 28, 2022. Unlike Mercury, who does a retrograde three times a year for three weeks each time, the Venus retrograde is much less frequent. Venus only does a retrograde every year and a half and it lasts for six weeks each time. In addition, the domain of Venus is about relationships, art, beauty and love. It’s much more sensitive than a typical Mercury retrograde, which is mostly about logistics and not affairs of the heart. All retrogrades are here to give us a new perspective on that area of life. What do you want to change? Now is the time to think about it.
The first week in December will be powerful since both the Moon and Venus will be joining Pluto and are all in the sign of Capricorn. This will be a great time to have a holiday party with your close friends and family. If the weather is good, have it outside. Capricorn is an earth sign and loves the outdoors.
Also, if you are in the mood, this is a good week to Feng Shui your house and yard. Move things around and open up the space. Even though it is the holiday season, you can still focus on your home and surroundings. See it as an end of the year house cleaning to prepare for the new year of 2022!
Regarding the visible planets, we are in for a treat. Venus is still the brilliant “evening star” above the western horizon after sunset. Just above Venus is bright Jupiter and dimmer Saturn. Take out your friends and family and show then this beautiful array of planets right after sunset. The only planet in the predawn sky is Mars, who will be above the eastern horizon just before sunrise.
See you for Capricorn!
