It is no coincidence that the Winter Solstice is marked by Capricorn ringing in the holidays. Cardinal signs always mark the beginning of a season: Aries marks the beginning of Spring; Cancer, the beginning of Summer; Libra, the beginning of Autumn; Capricorn, the disciplined, goal-oriented zodiac sign, is the sign that marks the beginning of Winter.
The reason is that the cardinal signs all represent initiation. While everyone will feel the sense of urgency that accompanies a change of seasons, a privileged few will not feel that energy as much.
So while the first day of Winter will certainly make itself known in every individual’s birth charts, Gemini, Leo, and Scorpio will feel the energy of Winter Solstice 2021 the least out of everyone.
Whenever a season affects you the least, it usually means that the next season (in this case, it’s Aquarius) will affect you a lot more. The season of Capricorn only prepares you for the major changes to come, bringing your attention to a more private and secluded area of your birth chart.
While these houses in particular may not be the most fun, there is something here that needs your attention before you move into a busier season of life. Here’s what Gemini, Leo, and Scorpio can expect from the relaxed Winter Solstice on December 21:
As the Sun moves into your eighth house of shared resources and finances, this is the time for you to get serious about your boundaries with yourself and with others.
You are usually not someone who likes to limit yourself, but at the end of the year it is important to assess where you need to assert more discipline in your life.
While planets moving through the eighth house can be a bit uncomfortable, the Winter Solstice will anchor and stabilize your energy just before the ball drops on New Year’s Eve.
While this season will probably be a little uncomfortable for you, the focus is on your sixth house of health and responsibility to help you get all your affairs in order before the year ends.
Sixth house themes usually aren’t fun or enjoyable, but it’s important that you have a solid foundation in place regarding how you take care of yourself and manage your day-to-day tasks. As a fire sign, you are always looking for ways to assert your energy, and the Winter Solstice reminds you that structure is needed for you to be able to assert yourself in the best possible way.
As the Sun enters your third house of communication, learning, and skills, it might not be the most active time for you, but it will emphasize how you interact with the people around you and how you absorb information.
While this may not seem like a particularly significant period, it is important for your fixed water sign nature to stay on top of the interests that matter to you.
Now is a great time to delve deeper into the topics you wanted to learn more about, and even share what you’ve learned with a loved one. This season is preparing you for the next big chapter in your life, and you will be highly equipped once it arrives.
