Your Weekly Horoscope for December 19–25, 2021: Venus Goes Retrograde!

December 18, 2021

A week filled with karmic shifts has arrived! At the very onset of the week, Venus goes retrograde. Our sweet planet of love, beauty, and profit will begin a retrograde phase in Capricorn on December 19. This will continue until January 29, 2022. Venus retrograde phases happen once every eighteen months—but take place in the same zodiac sign once every eight years. Because of this, we will be reviewing everything around what Venus rules during that period in time.

On one hand, Venus retrogrades are lovely because they bring people, projects, and matters from the past into our present once again. We are able to rekindle the connection and give it another go—or else find closure, release it, and move on once and for all. In Capricorn, Venus has been telling us to revisit how fulfilled our ambitions and careers are making us and if we want to change the way that we present ourselves to the world. Reconnecting with old professional contacts is ideal now. It would also be auspicious to return to a previous job, career path, or project if we are so inclined. In general, this is also one of the best periods to get back together with an old friend, colleague, or ex.

A Lucky Day

On December 19, the sun in Sagittarius will sextile Jupiter in Aquarius. Prepare for happy news, high-spirits, and good fortune to smile down upon us! This is an especially lucky time, where our previous efforts are likely to pay off. This is a great moment to start new projects, relationships, and endeavors, as joy will likely come from them.

On December 20, Mercury in Capricorn will trine Uranus in Taurus. Exciting ideas and news are likely to manifest. Flashes of insight will appear. This is an excellent vibration to use toward any communications, brainstorming, or socializing. With both planets in earth signs, professional and financial matters especially shine.

Capricorn Season & The Winter Solstice Arrive

Capricorn season arrives on December 21. In the month to come, we will focus on what we have built in the year past and if it is paying off how we’ve hoped for.

Yet, the dominant energy that will overrule this entire week—and likely be felt weeks before and after—will be the third and final square between Saturn in Aquarius and Uranus in Taurus on December 24. This has been a main theme throughout 2021, and will linger on into 2022—with it most notably being felt again in October 2022, despite there never being an exact square all year. During this time, we will thirst for freedom and change, but feel restrictions imposed upon us and adding hardship to our lives. With Saturn being direct and Uranus being retrograde, our Great Taskmaster’s energy will overpower the Great Liberator. Restrictions will cage us, despite our hope for change.

To end the week, Venus retrograde will again cozy up to Pluto in Capricorn on December 25. This will have a profound effect on our relationships, as we crave companionship, passion, and unity. Healthy connections will enjoy more affinity, yet toxic ones will feel a hissing tension. Listen to what your heart is telling you.
