Welcome to December, Gemini! At the end of November, you started getting creative about socializing, since COVID-19 is still a serious concern and the typical parties this season brings are pretty much off the table. On Tuesday, December 1, your ruling planet, chatty Mercury, enters Sagittarius, leading you to feel optimistic and resourceful. Take the lead on planning even more safe events with friends and family.
2020 has been one of the most stressful years on record, but even a pandemic struggles to dent a Gemini's self-esteem. However, when the sun in impulsive Sagittarius squares Neptune in flexible Pisces on Wednesday, December 9, you should take extra care of yourself physically and emotionally. This transit can affect your sense of confidence, so use this day to take it easy and catch up on some of the shows you may have been too busy to watch as of late.
Whether it's a virtual date or meeting up outside with a friend, have some fun on Monday, December 14, during a new moon and solar eclipse in expressive Sagittarius. However (you'll love this) don't make any major commitments. This vibe, which is all about being in the moment, continues when the lover planet Venus enters joyful Sagittarius on Tuesday, December 15. Casual flirtations and affairs may be your thing, but you're a heartbreaker, Gemini. Have your fun, but be sure to be honest with partners about what you're looking for.
One of the reasons this season is best for focusing on a good time rather than getting super serious is that the comet Chiron, known as the wounded healer, goes direct on Tuesday, December 15. You're becoming more aware of your trauma and how to heal, and it's important that you have the space you need to focus on yourself. While astrology can't control or predict everything, the world is likely to shift to a more modern, future-oriented point of view when Saturn re-enters revolutionary Aquarius on Wednesday, December 16. This forward-thinking theme continues when lucky planet Jupiter also enters Aquarius on Saturday, December 19.
You're smart, great with words, and incredibly creative, but sometimes — especially under stress — you have a hard time concentrating and focusing on your goals. When hardworking Capricorn season begins on Monday, December 21 (which also happens to be the winter solstice) you get a hit of cosmic energy and feel motivated for the first time in weeks. Take advantage of this and finalize any creative or professional projects you've been working on. A full moon in caring Cancer on Tuesday, December 29 also helps you focus on yourself. This month is about being selfish, Gemini, but with the purpose of becoming a healthier version of you. 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.
