Monthly Horoscope: Gemini, December 2021

Welcome to Sagittarius season, dear Gemini!
Sagittarius and Capricorn
Robin Eisenberg

The sun in Sagittarius lights up the relationship sector of your chart, making it an exciting time to meet new people and connect with established partners! Partnership is a big theme this season, and you’re figuring out what you want in a relationship and learning more about your partners’ perspectives. 

You’re feeling especially creative on December 1 as Neptune ends its retrograde in Pisces! Though you might feel confused about the direction you want to take your career, you’re also inspired to explore new possibilities and eager to express yourself artistically. The solar eclipse in Sagittarius arrives on December 4, marking an important turning point in your relationships. You may be entering a new partnership or renewing a commitment with someone you love or a person you’re in business with. A shift could also take place with a competitor! Emotions are high and you may be especially tired, so make plenty of time to rest. The shifts taking place right now could feel totally life-altering and things might never be the same! So, treat yourself and others with kindness and consideration, and be open to new possibilities…clinging to the past is the worst way to work with this energy.


Mars in Scorpio connects with Pluto in Capricorn on December 6, empowering you tackle the most annoying items on your to-do list! Your ruling planet Mercury, currently in Sagittarius, squares off with Neptune on December 7, which could bring some confusing conversations about your relationships or career, especially when it comes to boundaries. Be clear about your limits. Avoid gossip. If you read something or receive a message that doesn’t sound totally based in truth, trust your instinct and do a little more research. If someone is trying very hard to sell you on something, ask yourself: What’s in it for them?

A highly productive energy flows as Mars squares off with Jupiter in Aquarius on December 8, but watch out for impatience and short tempers. On December 11, Venus and Pluto meet in Capricorn, which could find you having an important realization about what investments of time, effort, or money you expect from your partners, whether the relationship is personal or professional. Intense feelings about desire, jealousy, or greed may surface. People want what they want at this moment, and folks who lack maturity may have a difficult time, while those who have patience and self-awareness can explore intimacy in a deep and transformative way. 

Also on December 11, Mercury mingles with lucky Jupiter, bringing an open-minded atmosphere that’s lovely for discussing things with your partners. People may be in a lazy mood on December 12 as the sun squares off with Neptune; it’s a fine time to daydream, but don’t let your imagination run away from you, and avoid having serious conversations if you can.


Mars enters Sagittarius and Mercury enters Capricorn on December 13, bringing a shift in energy. Your partners may be more straightforward or even blunt as Mars enters Sagittarius. You may be connecting with someone confrontational or someone who is extremely motivated. Your ruling planet Mercury in Capricorn could find you discussing issues concerning money, especially themes like debts.

There is a full moon in your sign, Gemini, on December 18, bringing many deep emotions to the surface. Sagittarius season is so much about relationships for you, but this full moon puts you and your needs in full view. An important culmination takes place in your partnerships as you make your feelings known. Venus retrograde begins in Capricorn on December 19, which will find you feeling especially frustrated if you’ve repeatedly been the one left with the tab when you go out with friends. You’re raising your standards in your relationships, and don’t want to be the only person giving your all! Financially, Venus retrograde could find you reworking how you approach debts, taxes, or even inheritances. 

Also on December 19 the sun mingles with Jupiter, bringing some lucky opportunities your way. You may be connecting with someone abroad or discussing travel plans. Surprising news or an emotional breakthrough arrives as Mercury connects with Uranus in Taurus on December 20, and Capricorn season begins on December 21, bringing your focus to financial concerns, especially money you share with others. 

Saturn squares off with Uranus on December 24 for the third and final time this year until 2043! Saturn is the planet of tradition, but Uranus is all about progress: This square means rules are being rewritten. For you, dear Gemini, your long-held ideas about the world may be transforming in a deep way. Philosophies you’ve held dear may seem outdated to you at this time. You’re ready to explore new ways of thinking. A creative rut can end as you open your imagination to new possibilities and it’s a brilliant time to explore new places and ideas.

Venus retrograde meets Pluto on December 25, finding you in a serious, intense mood as you reconsider what you expect from your partners. Mercury mingles with Neptune on December 26, inspiring an open-minded, imaginative atmosphere, and Jupiter enters Pisces on December 28, activating the sector of your chart that rules reward and recognition! Lucky opportunities—especially concerning your career or reputation—come your way. 

Mercury meets Venus retrograde on December 29, bringing an interesting realization about what you desire from your partnerships. A fresh start in how you communicate your wants arrives, and you may be expressing yourself in a more intense or business-like fashion. Mars connects with Saturn on December 29, finding you and your partners discussing plans and commitments, and Mercury and Pluto meet on December 30, finding you exploring a sensitive topic, perhaps money or intimacy. 

Good luck this month, Gemini, and see you in 2022!
