As you get older, you tend to realize that Christmas isn’t all about leaving milk and cookies for Santa and waking up at 6 a.m. to open presents because you’re too excited to sleep. It’s a time that allows you to focus on all your loved ones and encourages you to take stock of what you’re truly grateful for.
Sure, the sparkling fairy lights and nostalgic holiday music are enough to put a smile on your face, but truthfully, Christmas can be a heavy experience. It tends to remind you of the passing of time and the people you might miss, and if you’re one of the zodiac signs that’s having the worst Christmas 2020, it might be especially difficult this year.
After all, Christmas takes place during an emotionally charged time in astrology. The season of eclipses is over, bringing abrupt endings and changes. The Saturn-Jupiter conjunction (aka The Great Conjunction or “Christmas Star”) had also taken place a few days before, which was a momentous occasion in astrology that sparked a new beginning in the entire collective.
And, as with all new starts, getting started is always the hardest part. In fact, this year’s Christmas might seem heavy for that reason alone. However, there is still a long way to go. The Moon will move through the comfortable, luxurious, and loyal Taurus, a zodiac sign the Moon loves to be in.
Not only will this anchor the energy of Christmas, but it will also invite an innovative and electrifying excitement into the mix by partnering with the unpredictable Uranus. Mercury, the planet of communication, will also form a trine with Uranus, encouraging conversations to take on a beautifully intellectual and inspiring tint. However, air signs might have a hard time, here’s why:
You feel like you exist in a dream world. During Christmas this year, the Moon will transit through your 12th house of the subconscious, and you might feel more connected to your mind than to reality. In fact, putting a lot of pressure on yourself to do a lot of things or to socialize with a lot of people will only make you feel exhausted.
Try to relax and enjoy the melancholy of the holidays. You can endure unexpected emotional outpourings as the Moon connects with Uranus and releases the truth within. Give yourself time to process everything and the experience won’t necessarily be bad. In fact, it might even be beautiful.
Your emotions can be intense and overwhelming. You have a lot of things going on in your heart this Christmas. After all, the Moon will be moving through your eighth house of death and rebirth, forcing you to think about the passing of time and understand the fact that so much is ending this year.
Even if you don’t literally experience an actual ‘end’, you might be grappling with the end of a perspective or mindset you had before, because, let’s be honest, everyone would feel changed after the type of the year 2020 has been.
You may be feeling nostalgic for a different time. As the <oon moves through your fourth house of home and family this Christmas, you are in the perfect open space to spend time with loved ones (maybe virtually) while snuggling next to the glittering tree.
However, that doesn’t mean that you don’t also think about all the other Christmases that have passed and the difference between this one and the others.
With Mercury and the Sun passing through your 12th house of spirituality, you feel particularly connected to the past and to your memories. Try to find beauty in the present moment as much as you can.
