Your December 2020 Horoscope for Health, Love, and Success

Here's what the planets have to say about every facet of your life in the month ahead.

It's hard to believe that a year like 2020 — which felt like it simultaneously flew by and dragged like no other — is finally coming to a close. And now, it's December, and a holiday season unlike anything we've ever experienced. While it's *cue groan* an unprecedented time, there are some familiar themes: like every year, December is filled with an urge to reflect, celebrate, connect, and turn attention to visions of how to fill up the blank canvas that is a whole new year.

It's unsurprising that the last month of the year features two go-getter signs. From November 21 to December 21, the confident sun makes its annual trip through gregarious, jovial, adventure-loving Sagittarius, urging people to bond in a big-hearted way while standing up and speaking out about close-held beliefs. And from December 21 to January 19, it makes its way through driven, pragmatic Capricorn, which strengthens a sense of responsibility and tradition while fueling step-by-step efforts to achieve your personal best.

Sagittarius and Capricorn seasons — the first primed for getting out of your comfort zone, the latter for taking grounded steps to achieve your loftiest goals — join together to make December a month of embracing the moment and plotting ahead. This is a season for reveling in and appreciating all that you have while training your eye on what you want to achieve moving forward, mapping it out, and committing to putting in the work to make it real.

But the sun's trip through free-spirited Sag and industrious Capricorn is far from the major headline this month; 2020's second eclipse season is now in full swing. In turn, you'll want to think back on any musings or key life changes that occurred around June 5, when the lunar eclipse fell in Sag. The December 14 solar eclipse is happening in the same zone — and will offer you a path to take action on any emotional experience you had that's been brewing for the last six months.

The next day, on December 15, relationship-oriented Venus enters Sag, where it'll remain until January 8. Given that the fire sign is driven to explore and philosophize, you could find you're more open to — or even craving — eye-opening experiences, especially in Venusian areas of life, such as love, romance, art, beauty, and money.

On December 17, taskmaster Saturn moves into progressive, tech-savvy, humanitarian Aquarius, and fortunate Jupiter follows on December 19. These slower-moving planets will both dance through the fixed air sign for most of 2021, creating opportunities for society to learn and grow through Aquarian themes, like science and community-building.

On December 20, communicator Mercury enters Capricorn, where it'll remain until January 8, making our interactions more down-to-earth and steady, if not a bit aloof and business-oriented. That cool, standoffish vibe is something you'll want to consider around December 29 when the full "Wolf Moon" occurs in Cancer, likely bringing a lot of deep feelings to the surface and urging reflection on how you care for others — and yourself.

(Pro tip: Be sure to read your rising sign/ascendant, aka your social personality, if you know that, too. If not, consider getting a natal chart reading to find out.)
