Weekly Horoscope: December 20-26, 2021
Can you guys hear that? Those sleigh bells jingling? ‘Tis the season — and still Sagittarius season for a day more — so savor the chaos before Capricorn comes and lays waste to the fun. But even after the season changes — both the Capricorn and winter — consider giving yourself the gift of rest and release this Christmas — whether or not you celebrate.
In addition to marking the first day of Capricorn season, December 21 is also the shortest day of the year, so try to maximize your sunlight today and for the next few months. A vitamin D deficiency is the last thing you need this season.
While you all partake in the festivities, do consider that Venus (planet of love) conjoins Pluto (planet of transformation) in Capricorn on Christmas Day, bringing some intensity to an otherwise light day. Otherwise, feel free to heave a sigh of relief at the last full week of 2021. Here’s to hoping that 2022 is a little kinder!
