How Winter Solstice 2021 Will Affect Your Zodiac Sign

There is nothing more divine than experiencing the seasonal shifts of Mother Nature. It’s like a visual backdrop, awakening our senses while evoking a series of emotions. This is exactly what you can expect from your Winter Solstice 2021 horoscope, as it will introduce new vibrations of transformation and spiritual renewal for each sign of the zodiac.

The first day of Winter, which happens on December 21 at exactly 10:58 a.m. EST, marks the start of the Capricorn season, which also happens to be a symbol of hard work and discipline. If you have Capricorn placements or loved ones born under this sign, you are probably well aware of their pragmatism and “no funny business” mentality.

The passage of the Sun into this cardinal earth sign gives us the opportunity to hibernate and reflect. Going inward is almost inevitable when you consider the astrology of this year’s Winter Solstice.

The Moon will not only pass through its home sign, Cancer, which is naturally inclined to make us more sentimental, nostalgic, and hypersensitive with emotions, it will also be opposite Pluto and Venus retrograde in Capricorn.

So if feelings run deep with the Moon in Cancer, you can definitely multiply this energy times 10. Whether you are single, taken, or secretly crushing, the emphasis is on relationships during this time.

In other words, Venus is the planet of money, pleasure, romance, and values; Pluto transforms, destroys, and regenerates. This shadowy synergy can be as karmic as it is life-changing.

Either way, remember that the universe always has your best interests at heart, so be gentle with yourself during this time. And most importantly, lean on the people you care about. Here’s what this year’s Winter Solstice has in store for you, according to your zodiac sign:




Aries purpleYou are ready for a well-deserved vacation. It has been a busy year for you, and it is time for you to relax with your loved ones, Aries. So if you are wondering if you should take an extra day off, this is your cosmic signal to do it.

The Moon’s transit through your fourth house of home, family dynamics, and innermost feelings is more than enough reason to take a personal break, but the Moon’s opposition to Pluto and Venus retrograde could leave you feeling torn at the same time.

Self-reflection is necessary either way, so make yourself a priority.





Taurus purpleYou are called to explore the unknown. You’re not the type to be indecisive, but there is a first time for everything, Taurus.

The Moon’s transit through your familiar third house of immediate surroundings has “stay where you are” written all over it, but your governing planet, Venus, would not agree.

Venus will be retrograde via your adventurous ninth house and close to Pluto, which means you are thinking a lot about your next steps. Everything from your traditional values to your current belief systems will be a priority.





Gemini purpleYou are being frugal with your energy and your money.

You are taking a stand, Gemini. As the Moon transits through your second house, it will directly oppose Venus retrograde and Pluto, via your eighth house of mergers, shared resources, and soul mate connections.

Single or taken, you might be thinking deeply about your financial and romantic investments during this time. Whether it’s a lover or an employer, you might feel like you’re being pulled in two different directions.





Cancer PurpleYou follow your intuition when it comes to your relationships. One step at a time, Cancer. Capricorn season is usually tough for you because it’s your polar opposite sign, but your growing pains are almost over. The challenge?

In the midst of the Moon’s transit through your sign, it will oppose Venus retrograde and Pluto through your seventh house of agreements, contracts, and significant others.

Is something coming to an end? Don’t cling to people, places, and situations you’ve already outgrown.





Leo PurpleYou are being conscious of your health and your daily routine. The Moon’s journey through your twelfth house immediately validates your feelings of uncertainty and lethargy, so try to rest, Leo.

This is especially true when you consider its opposition to Pluto and Venus retrograde via your sixth house of due diligence. What needs to be restructured in this area of your life? Where are you investing your time and energy?






Virgo PurpleYou are looking for balance in your personal and social life. Who says you can’t have the best of both worlds?

It sounds like a scam during Capricorn season, but you could be emotionally invested in one thing, while still feeling completely drawn to another during this time.

For example, as the Moon wanders through your eleventh house of society, it will directly oppose Venus retrograde and Pluto through your fifth house of affection, creativity, and fame. Your passions speak louder than words, and you know it.





Libra PurpleYou reconnect with your past and do some healing. You break family patterns, and all is well Libra.

Your governing planet, Venus, is retrograde through your domestic fourth house of home, family, and emotional foundations, and close to Pluto.

Have you wondered if you should reconnect with a distant relative? Your feelings are deep, but you are also pragmatic.





Scorpio PurpleYou come home, but you are bringing a new perspective. Winter break with the family, Scorpio? The Moon’s journey through your ninth house of travel might suggest that you return home to visit family and friends.

However, the Moon’s opposition to Venus retrograde and your modern ruler, Pluto, could be where the potential challenge stems from.

For example, you might consider a trip back home, but have no choice but to cancel your travel plans; others may contemplate bringing a lover and/or friend along for the ride. There is a change in perception either way.





Sagittarius purpleYou take a closer look at your values. Sagittarius, it’s hard to make room for another person’s emotions when you’re so determined to go your own way. Maybe that’s why the cosmos presents you with this mini-challenge.

Either way, you have plenty to think about with Venus retrograde and Pluto hovering over your second house of comfort, money, and value systems.

This is especially true when you consider its opposition to the Moon via your intimate eighth house of shared resources.





Capricorn PurpleYou put yourself in other people’s shoes. Happy birthday, Capricorn.

While this is the official kick-off of your solar return, the Moon’s journey through your seventh house of significant others brings emphasis and intuitive clarity to themes surrounding your one-on-one partnerships.

The Moon will also make a direct opposition to Pluto and Venus retrograde in your sign, which will create friction between your personal values and those of your partner. Something is shifting.





Aquarius PurpleYou take a step back and do some introspection. Happy solstice, Aquarius. With four planets hovering over your twelfth house of closure, dreams, and all things behind the scenes, you probably feel the urge to retreat during this time.

However, in the midst of the Moon’s journey through your sixth house of daily due diligence, health habits, and acts of service,  it will directly oppose Pluto and Venus retrograde. Something is clicking and you are ready for change.





Pisces purpleYou are wearing your heart on your sleeve, but wondering if it’s welcome. No new friends, Pisces? Despite being a mysterious water sign, you pride yourself on your fluid nature and your diverse group of friends.

However, as the Moon transits through your fifth house of gratitude, it will form opposition to Venus retrograde and Pluto through your eleventh house of community.

You take a closer look at your sense of belonging to the world and challenge yourself to be authentic in the process. It’s time for a relationship upgrade.
