Welcome to December, Cancer! The holiday season is near to your heart, as it gives you many opportunities to cook and care for family and friends. But at the end of November, you may have felt a bit down due to the pandemic getting in the way of plans. This holiday season is hard, but you'll likely get a mood boost when messenger Mercury enters fun-loving Sagittarius on Tuesday, December 1. Use this energy to reach out and call or text friends and family. Everyone can use more connection and cheer right now.
Then, you might want to stay in and nest on Wednesday, December 9. The sun in outgoing Sagittarius trines Mars in bold Aries, and the meeting of these two fire signs may make you think more about your health and self-esteem. It's best to stay in and stay safe right now. Lean into your introvert tendencies and cook your favorite comfort food, snuggle with pets, and don't feel bad for prioritizing your health. Continue to lay low during the solar eclipse and new moon in bossy Sagittarius on Monday, December 14. Eclipses are infamously erratic and messy, and tempers will be high.
Your libido will also feel high when lover planet Venus enters horny Sagittarius on Tuesday, December 15. Use this day to play with makeup or whatever else makes you feel sexy enough to take some hot selfies. Send them to your partner or crush, and make sure to masturbate. On this same day, the comet Chiron, known as the wounded healer, goes direct, triggering a deep healing process in us all. If you have heartache or a body that needs some extra love and attention, now is the time to confront these themes. Giving yourself pleasure, whether it's through a hot bath or a new vibrator, definitely counts as healing.
It's impossible not to let the events of the outside world affect you, and unfortunately, astrology can't predict how leaders will act. However, there are some positive cosmic shifts this month to look forward to. On Wednesday, December 16, Saturn re-enters progressive Aquarius, nudging us all to let go of old-school ways of thinking in favor of a more modern approach. Then, on Saturday, December 19, Jupiter also enters revolutionary Aquarius, helping societal structures evolve. Some of the activism of 2020 many of us engaged in is continuing to pay off.
Hardworking Capricorn season begins on the winter solstice, Monday, December 21, and may be the push you need to get some momentum. You'll feel motivated and ready to tackle projects and prepare for the new year. You're going to enter full power mode on Tuesday, December 29, during the full moon in your sign. Remember that you are in control and you deserve to have what you want. You just need to be ready to fight for it. Good luck and see you in 2021!

We know many of you may be feeling worried, frightened, or isolated right now. Although the stars don't have answers to the multitude of questions running through all of our minds, astrology may at least provide some comfort during times of uncertainty. We urge you to donate to one or all of these organizations if you're able to. If you can't, we created a guide to ways you can support the BLM movement other than financially.
