2021 has been a wild race, and because astrology never rests for too long, the year will end on a particularly dramatic note. December is here and it’s packed with volatile astrological activity. It begins with a Solar Eclipse in Sagittarius at 22 degrees on December 4th, pointing you towards an expansive and soul-enriching shift.
The last month of 2021 could very well lead you down a path you didn’t expect to take, and if you’re one of the unlucky zodiac signs that are going to have a challenging December 2021 then you probably feel the cosmic chaos more than most.
This month might reveal some deeply buried truths about your relationships. After all, romantic Venus will join forces with revelatory Pluto on December 11, encouraging you to face the darker facts about how your relationships work.
When Venus retrogrades in Capricorn on December 19, you may even find yourself facing unfinished business with someone in your life. This retrograde will likely encourage you to have an honest conversation with yourself about how you deal with conflicts and the boundaries you’ve set with others, especially since Venus joins forces with Pluto again on December 25th.
The holiday season can also coincide with frustrating but inspiring challenges. As rigid Saturn squares off with unpredictable Uranus on December 24, you may feel particularly torn between following what you’ve been told and embracing your instinct to make things happen.
You might feel stuck between a rock and a hard place, but this rock could easily turn into a diamond under the right pressure. Here’s why the following zodiac signs may be struggling this month:
You may feel frustrated with anything that is holding you back. You might be feeling a little off this month, Taurus, and this is all because Venus, your ruling planet, is stationing retrograde on December 19th.
It might leave you a bit confused or out of touch, forcing you to become a bit more resourceful and flexible. As the month continues, you may feel that certain situations in your life are becoming more and more emphasized and intensified.
You may even feel that some walls are closing, forcing you to either respect their barriers or knock them down. As Saturn squares off with Uranus in Taurus on December 24, you may be about to rebel against anything that has limited your potential.
You might experience more relationship drama than usual. This month, you might feel like you and your loved ones are stepping on each other’s toes, Cancer. Venus will go retrograde on December 19, stirring drama in your seventh house of partnerships.
This might rekindle some latent conflict, finally encouraging you to discuss the elephant in the room and get answers. If you don’t get along with someone you love, try to stay positive.
You learn so much about what kind of partner you are and what kind of partner you need. Work on the tough stuff as it could bring you and your partner a lot closer.
Venus, your ruling planet, will be retrograde on December 19, which can leave you feeling more vulnerable and sensitive than usual. This retrograde is also happening in your fourth house of home and family, which can shed light on deep-rooted emotional issues.
However, those issues may have always been there, simmering just beneath the surface. This retrograde could be a great opportunity to get through them in a way you’ve never experienced before.
