The astrology forecast for the week of December 20, 2021 thru December 26, 2021 features four major aspects (Mercury trine Uranus, Saturn square Uranus, Venus Rx conjunct Pluto, and Mercury sextile Neptune) and the beginning of Capricorn season.
Since a lot is going on, let’s get on with the show.
The cosmic overview’s focus is something we have covered for the past year – Saturn square Uranus.
This week we have the final showdown between Saturn and Uranus. But keep in mind that planetary aspects have orbs, and Saturn square Uranus will continue to be active throughout 2022. However, they will never reach an exact aspect again until 2032, when they will conjoin in late Gemini.
In astrology, Saturn symbolizes the structures in our lives, whether that be the government, our careers, or our station in life. Saturn seeks stability, so he likes to hold onto things and doesn’t like change. On the other hand, Uranus likes progress, is rebellious, and likes to shake up the system. He finds the ‘establishment’ boring and, at its worst, corrupt. Since this aspect is a square, there is enormous tension between these two planets. If you lean towards the Saturn side of the square, change can be seen as suspect, disruptive, and chaotic. If you lean towards Uranus, you will see structure as limiting, restrictive, and only concerned with the selfish need to hold onto power and authority.
So, this gives you a whiff of the reason why the political landscape is currently so toxic!
Working with this aspect is not easy. It’s tough work, and it requires a lot of reflection and honesty. So naturally, based on our personal charts, we will gravitate to one side of the aspect or the other. However, the way to work with Saturn square Uranus proactively is to look at the areas of your life that need change and devise a plan to enact those changes in a way that you feel comfortable. A quick way to look at what needs to change is to look at the houses Saturn and Uranus are transiting in your chart. Here is a cheat sheet that will help you with the keywords.
Just remember, the more you work with the planets, the easier they are to manage. It’s when you deny giving them attention and pretend they do not exist; they become troublesome.
Now, on with the forecast…
Monday, December 20, 2021
We start the week with a beneficial trine between Mercury in Capricorn and Uranus in Taurus. It’s an excellent day to think outside the box and develop new solutions to old problems. You will find your intuition increased, which will help you make decisions. New ideas will be tantalizing and may lead you down a new path of discovery.

Happy Yule! On Tuesday, we leave Sagittarius behind and settle into the season of the sea-goat. Capricorn is a cardinal sign that likes to make things happen. So, it’s not surprising that we make New Year’s resolutions or start new things during Capricorn season. To put it more simply, Capricorn season is about taking care of business (personal and professional), and to achieve a prosperous New Year, you must plant the seeds. Just make sure what you plant will be fruitful.

The Moon spends its first full day in fiery Leo. During the morning hours, the Moon trines Mars, and if used correctly, this will give you a much-needed energy boost. However, expect frustrations and unexpected surprises during the afternoon as the Moon activates the upcoming square between Saturn and Uranus. Be proactive, not reactive.
Thursday, December 23, 2021
The Moon continues its trek through Leo, and you may need a ‘do you’ day before the holiday madness begins. So, have a bit of fun and enjoy yourself. Also, a bit of pampering and self-care never hurt anyone.
Friday, December 24, 2021
Besides Saturn squaring Uranus (see above), the Moon moves into diligent Virgo during the early morning hours. The Moon forms a lovely trine to the Sun in Capricorn, which is a harmonious aspect for getting things done. However, get all your holiday shopping and chores done as early as possible, because this evening the Moon squares discordant Mars.

Merry Christmas to all that celebrate!
I feel like the Grinch that stole Christmas, because the cosmic energy is problematic and tense. Today, Venus retrograde conjoins Pluto in Capricorn. Relationships that are strained may experience the brunt of this aspect, because Venus conjunct Pluto signifies the need for change in relationships. Your emotions may be intense, and you may need to manage them cautiously. Moreover, ignoring relationship problems out of fear of change could lead to further complications. Avoid manipulation tactics even if you feel justified.
Sunday, December 26, 2021
We close the week with a harmonious sextile between Mercury in Capricorn and Neptune in Pisces. After an intense holiday, you may need a break to get in touch with your personal thoughts and feelings, and Mercury sextile Neptune can provide deep insight and understanding. If need be, go to your quiet place and listen to your gut; it will not misguide you.
See you next week!
