I thought I would change things up a little bit for December this year and some joy and playfulness to this month’s astro. Sagittarius season officially started the week of November 20th but as December begins, we see the potent new moon in Sagittarius taking the energy up a notch. 

This new moon is in combination with a solar eclipse which means it potentised the energy that is already strong. New moons are generally about starting things, seeding plans for the month ahead and the beginning of a cycle, yet when combined with an eclipse it brings with it an energy that is about releasing and letting go of the things that no longer serve you. Sagittarius is the wanderer, explorer, and storyteller of the zodiac so when we combine this energy of the Sag new moon with an eclipse, it is inviting us to surrender and let go of all that is no longer serving our higher purpose, be it friends, things, ideas, and bigger picture dreams. This doesn’t mean we have to let go of our useful and big dreams but just the stories and plans that we may have outgrown and no longer need to be striving for. 

Sagittarius also brings in a jovial, expansive energy that we can ride till the winter solstice and Capricorn energy emerges on the 22nd of December. This is a great month to plan big, search for meaning and wisdom in all that you do, look for the coincidences and insight that the universe is sending your way. With the planet Jupiter, ruler of Sagittarius making us all feel inspired and expansive, it is a wonderful time to treat yourself or those you love to some playful healthy gifts and experiences. 

I thought it would be fun to do the astrology this month as a gift guide for each sign so that you know how to pick just the ‘right’ thing.
