This month is the final eclipse in the Gemini/Sagittarius eclipse cycle, which we won’t see again until mid-2048-49. The last time around in this cycle (2000-2001), we saw the destruction of our self-perception as a safe and inviolable country. This time we see the exposure of a dangerous disunity, further eroding what’s left of our mythic national identity. How you choose to invest your time, talents, passions, and resources going forward must be informed by lessons learned during this long and often painful transit.

The New Moon in Sagittarius accompanies a Total Solar Eclipse December 4, followed by a powerful sextile between Mars and Pluto. Light is hidden and then revealed: What you see in the illumination empowers you to vigorously pursue your agenda December 8 with Mars square Jupiter. The Full Moon in Gemini December 18 engenders curiosity and compassion, with the chance to learn something new and enlightening about yourself in relation to others.

Venus, planet of love, beauty, money, and partnership, is traveling through Capricorn until early 2022, including a retrograde period from December 19 through January 29. This transit is an important cog in the wheel of the huge tectonic changes of the coming years. Venus conjuncts powerful, destructive, and re-creative Pluto twice this month: direct on December 11, and retrograde on December 25, with Last Quarter Moon in Libra December 26. If the Venn diagram of your values and your valuables is not a perfect circle, adjustments will be made—by your own will and choices, or by societal force.

The final of 2021’s three Saturn-Uranus squares December 24 is an opportunity to invest in progressive structure-building and innovative security. Jupiter enters Pisces December 28 at the Sun’s square to Chiron. Empathy and compassion take ascendancy as we bid farewell to 2021.
