The month of December begins astrologically-speaking late evening of the 3rd or early morning of the 4th, with a Solar Eclipse New Moon in Sagittarius, corresponding to your career sector. This brings your focus to your outer world statement and performance, for a significant fresh start in this area of life, which also indicates how you manifest in the world in general, how you do what you do. The emphasis of this important lunation brings an awareness of the deeper changes occurring regarding your family participation and also brings fresh energy for key relationships in your life. This eclipse is actually the last one of a series of eclipses that occurred on the Gemini/Sagittarius axis since the beginning of 2020.

From the 5th to the 7th, Mars in Scorpio sextile Pluto in Capricorn could help you find the right people to support your ideas. You could feel unusually ambitious during the first week of December with also Mars squaring Jupiter in Aquarius on the 7th and the 8th.

Venus is thus closely conjunct transformational Pluto for nearly all of the last 2/3 of December, which may unearth some deeper truth about your social circles and your feelings of belonging. Your goals and your future plans are in deep transition at this time, and there will be a noticeable connection to your communication skills and also your spiritual evolution in general.
On the 11th and the 12th, the Sun in Sagittarius squares Neptune in Pisces , which creates some confusion as to where things are heading so best not to draw a hard conclusion at this time.

The Venus retrograde of the 19th in conjunction with Pluto emphasizes your transformations in the area of your prospective planning, and is also announcing a longer trend that could play out for the next three months relating to this are of your aspirations, your dreams and your community participation. Venus occupies the sign of Capricorn right up to March of 2022, re-conjuncting Pluto early in that month. Your perspectives and social values are also likely to be changing at this time so be on the lookout for this might ultimately mean for you in your life.
During the Full Moon weekend also, Mercury in Capricorn squares Chiron as it stations direct in Aries which may bring up inner wounding and issues of self-worth, including significant conversations on these subjects. These will have a healing aspect to them, and you benefit from focusing on that side of what goes on there. There may be a new element introduced at this time that changes how you approach a situation. Venus in retrograde until late January makes this period from now until February an excellent time to discard stale value systems or relationships that do not fit with who you are becoming.
