On December 21, Autumn will fall away and make room for Winter, ushering in three months of freezing temperatures and snow to replace the red, yellow, and orange leaves of the previous three months.
And with that comes a new zodiac sign season, as the Sun will move to Capricorn on the same day, making it the perfect time to find out which zodiac signs will be most affected by the Winter Solstice 2021 (aka the first day of Winter).
Everyone will be affected by the lack of heat and Sun in one way or another, but there are actually four lucky zodiac signs that will primarily benefit from the motivating energy that accompanies the Winter Solstice.
These happen to be cardinal signs (Aries, Cancer, Libra, and Capricorn). As a cardinal sign, Capricorn energy is initiator, goal-oriented, and productivity-driven.
There is a desire to shake things up and take off during this time, so it only makes sense that this quartet would feel this energy the most out of everyone. Here’s where Aries, Cancer, Libra, and Capricorn can each expect during the Winter Solstice 2021:
As the first sign of the zodiac, the Capricorn season aligns perfectly with your ambitious and action-oriented nature, and as the Sun enters your tenth house of career and public image on December 21, you will feel this energy quite strongly.
While you are always eager to try new and exciting things, your professional life is the one area where you tend to really buckle down and exercise discipline, and it will be even more relevant now.
Now is a great time to assess last-minute career changes before the end of the year, especially as Venus stations retrograde in this same area on December 19. While retrogrades don’t often tend to be times where you see much rapid growth, it’s time to assess where you’re heading professionally.
Are you happy with the way things are going or is it time to make some changes? As the planet of oneness,
Venus transiting through your tenth house probably puts professional relationships at the forefront as well, so be sure to think about these dynamics as you head into 2022. They should help, not hinder you.
As the sister sign of Capricorn, this energy will affect you almost directly, especially in the area of dating and relationships. With the Sun moving through your seventh house, your connections and bonds with others are probably your top priority right now.
This is a great time to assess the stability and security you receive from your partner, and possibly make any necessary adjustments if the relationship is falling short in any way. You need a little stability in your romantic endeavors, so be sure to communicate that clearly to your partner during this time.
Since Venus retrograde is also in effect here, don’t be afraid to get real with yourself about this dynamic. Can you see this relationship going somewhere, or is it time to reevaluate?

As the cardinal sign of the zodiac ruled by Venus, Libras feel the energy of Capricorn differently, since Capricorns are all about discipline and structure, and Libras are all about connection, but you will still be feeling this difference quite heavily as the Sun makes its way through your fourth home of home and family.
There is probably something going on behind the scenes that demands your attention now, and with Venus, your governing planet, also retrograde in Capricorn since December 19, you will be invited to review and revise your life situation or relationship with your loved ones just in time for the holidays.
While it can be quite an uncomfortable time for you, it will give you a sense of security and stability that you may not often find.
It’s your season and all eyes are literally on your every move as the Sun makes its way through your first house of self, Capricorn. You are used to exercising an incredible level of discipline, and this season will completely align with that.
Just be sure to stick to your own pace, as you and the other cardinal signs tend to get exhausted quickly. Since Venus will also be retrograde around the time of the Winter Solstice, don’t be surprised if you feel a little uncomfortable during this season.
There may be a few things that need your attention outside of your personal goals, but as always, you’ll manage them effortlessly. Remember that rest and relaxation are just as productive as tackling a long list of responsibilities, and your relationships are also worth investing as much as your career.
