The Solstice Gateway to 2020: Astrology Forecast December 15 – 22, 2019

December 16th, 2019

By Lorna Bevan

Contributing Writer for Wake Up World

Last week’s Venus/Saturn/Pluto conjunction felt quite oppressive and distinctly mood flattening, but just in time for the festivities to begin, everything shifts. On Sunday 15th, a Jupiter Uranus trine sparks inventiveness, hope and faith in a better future, then on Tuesday and Wednesday the Sun and Mercury merge with two of the karmic black holes, the Galactic Centre and the Great Attractor. Suddenly, the clouds part and we glimpse the bigger picture putting everything back into perspective.

The Solstice on Saturday 21/22 is more charged this year than ever before as it falls only 5 days before a Solar eclipse on December 26th with the Sun joining a huge star gathering of Quaoar, Jupiter, South Node, Ceres, Saturn, Pluto and Chariklo in Capricorn.

Stay open and aligned with the New as it presents by gently releasing past distortions – so that in January 2020 a fresh cosmic wind can blow through the halls of your own mind, heart and experience, shifting you out of past entanglement towards seeding an entirely different future

Ask yourself with curiosity, not judgment:

what’s heavy, weighing me down?

what am I tolerating, putting up with or settling for?

what am I fantasising about leaving or radically changing?

 what would I love to never do again?

what is chronically inflamed?

what is dead in the water?

 what no longer has traction?

what am I going to stop doing?

What’s the one thing I’m afraid to say about my life and what am I going to do about it?

The Chandra Symbol for the Solstice – Capricorn 1:

A canopy bed with curtains.

“Standing on the inside of life. Protected and guarded, guided and led. Held fast. The Witness empowered to prevail–able to see, to realise, to comprehend the mysteries. Clairvoyance. Keenly sensing and viewing meaning and value, purpose and spirit backbone. So very strongly and steadily directed from within that there is no outer, there is nothing to do. Instead, you centre yourself and align with who you truly are and stalwartly remain in the place of authority and power and inward truth as your statement and the only thing you know.”

Aries Weekly Forecast: December 15-22, 2019

It’s time to reflect on what your role really is in the outside world. Just like everyone else, you have a purpose, unique gifts and attributes that only you can contribute. And right now, with no fewer than 7 planetary points gathered at the pinnacle of your chart in practical strategic Capricorn ahead of a New Moon eclipse and January’s rare Saturn/Pluto merger, what you offer really matters. Whether you have a career ,volunteer for a charity ,are self-employed or retired, there is something bigger with your name on it and it’s asking you to stand up, step up and be counted .Watch for clues and insights on Sunday when Jupiter aligns with Uranus bringing one of those lightbulb moments of absolute clarity.

Adding value.

Taurus Weekly Forecast: December 15-22, 2019

Are you feeling bored, stuck and increasingly restless? If so, don’t stick your head back in the sand and hope it will go away -it won’t. Awakener Uranus is now electrifying Taurus until 2026 and won’t let up until you’re ready to leave your comfort zone behind and live a bigger life. On Sunday 15th, Jupiter the expansionist aligns with Uranus, sparking insights and light bulb moments that have the power to light your way ahead. It’s not about throwing the baby out with the bath water but more about finding interesting ways to shake yourself free from boring habits and routines. The same goes for anyone who drains your spirits instead of lifting them. You need people who share your passion for life and can show you a bigger more exciting world out there.

Trust your instincts.

Gemini Weekly Forecast: December 15-22, 2019

After last week’s Full Moon in your sign, along with Venus and reality planets Pluto and Saturn bringing some home truths, you may be in need of some me-time. All the events of the last year ,when Jupiter crossed your opposite sign bringing a radical changing of the guard in partnerships and friendships, may have left you feeling overwhelmed. The welcome news is that on Thursday your personal planet Mercury meets Pallas archetype of wisdom and insight, giving you some important realisations about what really matters to you. It’s time to refuse to allow people and events to buffet your confidence and to follow the beat of your own drum.

A handmade life is the only one that works.

Cancer Weekly Forecast: December 15-22, 2019

It’s that time of year, Cancer, when the Sun is at its furthest away from yours at the Solstice Point, when the Light appears to stand still for up to three days. For everything there is a season and now is the season to be still, be reflective and to allow your batteries to slowly re-charge. Traditionally in the Northern hemisphere, people gather round fires and gather their tribe-whether that’s family or friends. But you also need to set aside time to withdraw into your own sanctuary, to think about the highs and lows of this last year and to allow new shoots to germinate. On December 26th ,a New Moon eclipse will re-arrange events again-knowing this let the chips fall where they may.

Keep reminding yourself of Cancer’s mantra: ”I build a lighted house and therein dwell”.

Leo Weekly Forecast: December 15-22, 2019

If last week’s Full Moon with Venus, Pluto and Saturn put a damper of your festive spirit, take heart-the energy is about to lift. This Sunday December 15th, planet of expansion Jupiter aligns with planet of surprises Uranus, sending a jolt of electricity across the pinnacle of your chart. Expect positive news about your career, possibly a job offer,a promotion or a chance to work on a bigger stage. If it doesn’t manifest immediately, events surrounding the New Moon eclipse on December 26th will change circumstances around you to open doors. Meanwhile, with Mars in your 4th House, grab the chance to de-clutter your home, take unwanted possessions to the charity shop or to do much needed repairs. Think of it as a clear out ready for an eventful New Year.

A sense of momentum.

Virgo Weekly Forecast: December 15-22, 2019

All your astrology suggests a welcome sense of everything falling into place. This Sunday December 15th, Jupiter aligns beautifully with Uranus gifting you with valuable and applicable ideas, insights and inspirations. From now until the end of 2020, your creativity knows no bounds and this is just the starting point. So please don’t let those lightbulb moments fade away. Capture them as valuable resources to build on and from. Meanwhile, watch for synchronicities such as meeting someone who could become an important mentor or teacher or even publish your work. An old hobby left by the wayside could rekindle your enthusiasm for a new course of study and exploration. All of it is seeding a new pathway which will become clearer during 2020.

Finding your voice.

Libra Weekly Forecast: December 15-22, 2019

The week begins with a wonderful link between generous Jupiter and planet of surprises Uranus in your 8th House of finances and resources, so be alert for offers and opportunities. From December 21st, as the Sun moves into Capricorn to join 7 other planets, you experience some sort of homecoming-either literally or metaphorically. Your family and tribe are highlighted as you realise their meaning in your life and want to show them you care. This promises to be an extra special festive season for you. The New Moon Eclipse on December 26th brings a definite ending-someone might leave, you might decide to sell up or move across country. Whatever happens, it’s making space for a much happier year ahead.

A true sense of belonging.

Scorpio Weekly Forecast: December 15-22, 2019

The good news is that it certainly looks as if it’s going to be an extra festive season for you. Your personal ruler Mars in your own sign is giving you a much needed buzz, setting you up to be the life and soul of the party. Then at the Solstice next weekend, harmonious Venus lights up your home and the stage is set to invite your family and friends to celebrate the heart of winter. Make the very most of time together, creating strong bonds and mutual support. With a New Moon eclipse conjunct expansive Jupiter on December 26thheralding big changes in January, know that whatever is leaving is making space for something much better.

Heart warming.

Sagittarius Weekly Forecast: December 15-22, 2019

As the Sun leaves your sign for Capricorn at the Solstice on the 21st, a whole new chapter opens. Last year was all about taking a leap of faith by following opportunities just to see where they would lead. You surprised yourself by all you achieved, survived and created and you’ve emerged stronger and more resourceful. From this week through 2020, the practicalities and underpinnings of your life are the priority. An unprecedented gathering of planets in your 2nd House of income-including hard hitting change agents Saturn and Pluto-mean business, literally and metaphorically. It’s time to look at the bottom line and ask if you’ve been undervaluing or underselling yourself. If you owe money, find a way to pay it off and if someone owes you money, call the loan in.

Time to invest in yourself.

Capricorn Weekly Forecast: December 15-22, 2019

Hopefully you spent last week nurturing your wellbeing and re-charging your batteries. If so, you’ll be ready for the energy boost as the Sun -our Light-returns to Capricorn at the Solstice on Saturday 21st.This is the start of your personal New Year and with expansive Jupiter returning to Capricorn for the first time since 2007 amplifying the wild card New Moon eclipse on December 26th,look for the gifts.2020 is set to be a never to be repeated year when you truly come into your own, so don’t just sit and wait to see what happens but take time out to laser focus on your most heartfelt desires. You need the Will and intention to make radical permanent changes instead of tinkering at the edges.

An old life is going dark….

Aquarius Weekly Forecast: December 15-22, 2019

The week gets off to a gentle start on Sunday 15th, when Venus lights up Aquarius, making you more attractive and nudging you to shift your self-care and wellbeing up a notch. Then both Venus and Jupiter align with Uranus in your 4th house of home and belonging, expanding your sense of what could be possible. Watch for sudden light bulb moments when you see how you’ve been limiting yourself, keeping your life -or your walls! -in a muted colour palette. Start where you are and beautify your personal space, creating a welcoming haven for the festivities. From Saturday’s Solstice when the Sun joins 7 other planets and points in your deeply intuitive 12th House, ahead of a New Moon Eclipse here on the 26th, open yourself to a much more spacious and loving reality than the one you’ve inhabited so far.

“The greatest personal limitation is to be found not in the things you want to do and can’t, but in the things you’ve never considered doing” Richard Bandler.

Pisces Weekly Forecast: December 15-22, 2019

Set yourself free and let your intuition run wild, Pisces-it’s time to unleash that super power of yours, that uncanny ability to see round corners. As both Venus and Jupiter align with awakener Uranus in your angle of connection and communication, it will feel as if you have a hotline to the Cloud. With both Mercury and Pallas-archetypes of wisdom and insight-crossing the pinnacle of your chart, use your voice for the greater good. Work on behalf of a charity, look after your neighbours, offer your time and experience for nothing, stand up and be counted. And call in friends, family members and colleagues as collaborators and sponsors. Talk to as many people as possible to create practical support for your passion.

People are your currency.
