Aside from this, this month, we will also be wrapping up the last eclipse of this year with a total solar eclipse in Sagittarius on December 4th.

To follow, we then have a full moon in Gemini making its way into our space on December 18th, followed by a retrograde in Venus hours later, which could stir up an uncertain but powerful time for cleansing and release in our relationships as we become more in touch with ourselves, our worth, and our values. And finally, this is then topped off by the Winter Solstice as well as the start of the Capricorn season on December 21st-22nd, marking the beginning of winter, pushing us to bundle deep within ourselves as we go through a powerful period of reflection.
