This December there’s powerful dynamic energy going on as Venus aligns with Pluto forming a conjunction. Your Inner Goddess of Love (Venus), and the Inner Sovereign of your Underworld (Pluto) have to get right with each other. When the pure light of Love shines, anything in your heart-field that is other than pure love . . . casts a shadow. This December calls you to do the inner work of recognizing whatever dwells in your heart-field and is unexpressed, or buried in your Underworld . . . and to find an authentic way to let your light of loving awareness shine through the very things that seem too weighty and dark to bring to light.
New Moon + Total Solar Eclipse
December also starts off with a New Moon and Total Solar Eclipse in Sagittarius occurring on December 4th. An eclipse of the sun occurs on New Moons when the Moon passes in front of the Sun and covers the Sun’s disk from our point of view (sometimes totally, other times partially). New Moons alone are like a reboot for our internal life force and life processes. Adding in the eclipse, gives more energy and power to this New Moon cycle.
We can never really predict what will happen for you when an eclipse occurs, however, looking at where this eclipse is occurring in your birth astrology chart can give you more information and what house and area of your life the eclipse might have its effects. Sometimes it brings clarity for New Beginnings and or other times it can force the energy of a necessary ending. The energy of the eclipse may not necessarily happen all in a moment on the day.
This December's New Moon + Total Solar Eclipse is occurring at 12 degrees Sagittarius.
I recommend taking some personal time on Dec 3 and 4th with this Sagittarius New Moon Solar Eclipse and reflect on where you’ve been in the last month (since the last new moon). Notice what’s transforming into new beginnings for you, what new truths (Sagittarius) are coming in for yourself? What needs to shift for you to come more fully in alignment with this?
This eclipse will be visible over Antarctica; the effects are global. The time of the Eclipse begins on Dec 3rd at 9:29 PM PST with maximum coverage at 11:33 PM PST and ends on Dec 4th at 1:37 AM PST.
Venus conjunct Pluto in Capricorn
Strongest on 11th - 14th
When Pluto and Venus come together, through most of December and beginning with the Solar Eclipse on the 4th, relationships may intensify with an opportunity to transform them to new levels. If there’s healing that needs to happen or a possible inevitable ending - December may bring this energy to light.
Venus influences the aspects of life that have to do with relationships and love, a sense of beauty and aesthetics, and the flow of resources and money. There’s a welcoming softness to Venus energy that brings forth feelings of warmth and connection with others.
Pluto’s presence intensifies energy and offers deep levels of transformation to whatever aspects of our lives it touches. If there are unresolved situations from the past or something buried in your subconscious, Pluto has a powerful and insistent way of bringing those things up to the surface to be looked at and dealt with. These hidden things in your psyche may be difficult to see, which can account for why Pluto’s energy can also feel dramatic and intense, but ultimately... Pluto’s challenges can help you come into a new refreshed place once you’ve made your way through it. The important piece for this process is that these things have an opportunity to be worked through, healed, and transformed so they can no longer have an unconscious hold over you.
Venus + Pluto may also get you focused on finances. If there’s anything you need to get real with, this is a good month to bring unconscious patterns around money habits to light.
Look out for December 11-14th and 25th-26th, when Pluto and Venus will have their strongest point of joining up together this month.
