Next year is already shaping up to be a year of big changes and new beginnings and December brings us the perfect balance of energies that we need to help us finish off the remainder of our year of lessons and embrace 2020 with open arms. December is full of cosmic alignments that will help us gain the clarity that we need to help us prepare for all that’s to come.
On December 2nd, Jupiter moves into Capricorn for the first time in 12 years. As it moves out of its home territory of Sagittarius and moves into Capricorn, we may feel at odds at first and as though we too are not in our natural habitat. We may be more cognizant of our surroundings and may have some slight dissociation as we enter new territory. However, this feeling won’t last long as Jupiter in Capricorn actually gives us some good luck and protection. As Jupiter spends the next year in Capricorn, it will help open new doors for us and present us with new opportunities. This will be a time for major self-growth as we develop our characters and make major strides towards becoming the people we’ve always been destined to be. Jupiter in Capricorn also offers us guidance towards our personal and career objectives. This lunar transition will reveal to us the answers that we’ve been seeking and will propel us to new heights. Use this strong cosmic energy to take a leap of faith and start that project that you’ve been contemplating for quite some time.
We will also see Saturn and Pluto move into Capricorn and while we won’t feel the bulk of this energetic shift until January, if we tune in to the subtle vibrations of the Universe, we can start to feel this energy brewing. This major alignment of Saturn and Pluto only happens every 35-38 years and no one alive has ever experienced these two planets together in Capricorn. This will create major waves in our lives as we begin to see the end of things that no longer serve us. Those people and things that we have been clinging to and refusing to let go of despite knowing that they are remnants of our past and hindering us from truly letting go and moving forward, are about to make their exit. The Universe is giving us the push that we need to take action on what we know in our heart of hearts needs to be done. Once we learn to let go, we create a space in our lives to welcome in the energy that will help us reach new heights. We are being asked to make the changes needed to welcome 2020 with open arms and open hearts and embrace the abundance that this next year will bring. We are being asked to break away from those things in our lives that are limiting or restricting. We are being asked to climb higher than we ever have before while staying balanced and grounded. We are being asked to stretch our limits and challenge ourselves in new ways. This is the time to start thinking about what you want your intentions for 2020 to be and begin taking the steps towards actualization.
On December 12th at 12:12am EST, we are showered in the glowing moonlight of a Full Moon in Gemini. This will be a slightly challenging Full Moon as it will focus on us being truly honest with ourselves. Those truths we have not faced head on, the ones that we have had the “out of sight, out of mind” mentality on, will come to light. While it is sometimes difficult to face our innermost truths, it is only in doing so that we can truly do the work that is needed in order for us to ascend into our next level. That which we do not address only serves to hold us back from realizing our utmost potential.
This is a great Full Moon for doing internal work and connecting to the vein that pulses through the Universe. Things like meditation and journaling will help us to process the truths that come to light and will allow us to make amends and process any remaining trauma that may be stirred up. We have a deep desire to realize our Higher calling and break free of any chaos that we experience. By working through past difficulties and realizing the truth within ourselves, we create a refuge in which we can let gratitude flow. When you thank misery for its place in your life, you will be amazed at how quickly it flees. This Full Moon will allow us to feel this deep gratitude for all of the ups and downs of life and will bless us with a wiser perspective on life than we have ever had before.
With the December Solstice on the 21st at 11:19 EST, we usher in the turning of the Sun, as the days in the Northern Hemisphere begin to grow again and our Moonlight begins to shrink in anticipation of the June Solstice next year. Depending on where in the world you live, the December Solstice is the official start of winter or summer. Regardless of your location in the world, this Solstice is a time to begin thinking about what goals and intentions you want to set for the months and year ahead. This Solstice also marks the beginning of Capricorn season, ushering in an incredible energy for setting long-term goals and resolutions. The Earth sign energy that Capricorn brings means ambition, persistence, and practicality will be abundant, allowing you to make a game plan for what you want to accomplish. Use this energy to help you do the work needed to help your dreams and goals come to fruition.
This month, we will also experience the major celestial energy of the Capricorn Solar Eclipse on December 26th. With the Moon passing between the Earth and the Sun, we will be showered in powerful Moon energy that will open a portal for us to a new wave of consciousness. This Eclipse will be intense and we will feel the energy radiate throughout our lives and within our beings. This energy can sometimes feel overwhelming, so make sure to take the time to break away from the hustle and bustle or the holiday season and find calmness. Visualize yourself aligning with your Higher self and in turn raising your vibration. Use this bountiful Eclipse energy to honor where you are in life, how you have grown and changed, what you are continuing to work on, and the person you envision yourself continuing to become. Relaxation and wellness are the two most important things to embrace. We have had a busy year full of ups and downs, we have overcome some difficult challenges and obstacles, and we have emerged through it all stronger than ever before. Enjoy this prolific energy as this year comes to a close and awaken your higher consciousness as you set your intentions for 2020 and continue on your journey of spiritual growth and awakening.
December is a month of closure but is also here to help us welcome new beginnings as we get ready to enter into a new year of endless possibilities. Remember where you were at this time last year and see how far you’ve come and just how much you’ve grown. No matter where you are in your journey, take a moment to thank your mind, body, and soul for all of the hard work that they have put in this past year to help you get to where you are now. Remember the things you used to pray for and realize what has come to fruition and how much progress you’ve made towards all of your goals and intentions. It is easy to get bogged down by thoughts of that which we have yet to accomplish. This is the time of year where we have to focus on being kind towards ourselves, respect the progress we’ve made, and embody complete gratitude. It doesn’t matter if you’ve made mistakes. It doesn’t matter if not all your goals have been realized. December is a time to celebrate and honor where you are in life and radiate love and kindness towards yourself and others.
The Universe is guiding us this month towards a final push for the year to let go of that which no longer serves us, make peace with our innermost truths, and have the confidence to take the steps towards realizing our dreams. Trust that whatever is no longer in your life was never meant to enter this new chapter with you. Trust that whatever has come into your life is here for a purpose to help you level up, raise your vibration, and enter 2020 with abundant energy. 2020 is your turning point. This past year may have been difficult, but we made it through and are stronger than we have ever been. You are about to experience a huge transition and awaken your Higher self. You are about to step into your most incredible year yet and December is here to give you the tools that you need to go into this new chapter with open arms, profound love, and deep gratitude.
