Horoscopes For Queer Women: Solar Eclipse Season Is Upon Us, Closing 2020 With A Bang

We must all work together to create the world we want to live in, and this month reminds us of that more than ever. 

Solar Eclipse season is upon us, closing off a dramatic year with an even more dramatic ‘bang’. Our first eclipse is in freedom-loving Sagittarius on December 14th, helping us break from the need to always be right, to know everything, and to indulge our selfish desires. This eclipse will show us how and where we can be more thoughtful to those around us, give us more insight into how to make peace with uncertainty, and reveal how to stand up in support of justice, equity, and fairness. The spotlight this month is on how to change the world and make it better for everyone

When Jupiter and Saturn move into Aquarius mid-month, this alignment marks a turning point that affects us all for years to come. When the sun moves into all-business, no-nonsense Capricorn on the 21st, we’ll feel pulled to approach life with discipline, integrity, and a deeper sense of responsibility. Expect a focus on unpredictability, innovation that benefits the greater good, and sustainability. We must all work together to create the world we want to live in, and this month reminds us of that more than ever. 


This month brings with it the opportunity for you to take a greater role in establishing yourself as a leader in your community, dear Sagittarius. People will be looking to you for advice and as an example, and you’ll be feeling up for the part. Remember that this comes with great responsibility; there’s a difference between confidence and clarity, and feeling confident in your opinions is not enough. Don’t be afraid to say “I don’t know” when you need to find the answers elsewhere. Connect with your sense of inner compassion and integrity this month. You can be kind without being fake.


These past couple of years have brought major growth for you, Capricorn. And the journey — though at times has felt like it may be the death of you — has been rich and full of lessons. The pressure is easing up some this month, and a new story is beginning to unfold in your life. By mid-month, you’ll have the opportunity to shake off your more self-defeated/limiting beliefs and let go of the insecurities that have been holding you back from reaching your goals. Put pen to paper this month to name one goal you’d like to change in your life, and then take the first step to make it happen. 


Do you feel it, Aquarius? A new beginning is on the horizon for you. All of the disappointments, tough blows, and hardships that you’ve faced over the last couple of years have left a mark on you, and it’s time to take those lessons and see that you’ve come out on top. The universe is working in your favor this month, helping you gain ground as you head into a new year. The work you’ve been doing has paid off, and the coming months will find you feeling more secure and hopeful for the future. Don’t let the ease of the days make you lazy, though. Set intentions to do something that scares you and requires some energy. You may not feel ready just yet to move forward, but now’s the time for getting ready to step into new frontiers. 


Your career is a focus for you this month, sweet Pisces. If you’ve been grappling with some big questions about how to reach the next level in your professional life, get honest with yourself. You’re outgrowing parts of yourself and you have a sense of what you want to come next, so don’t let fear hold you back. This month, the universe will deliver some insights about what your next steps are. Don’t discount yourself; you’re ready for the next phase even if you’re not sure you are. Open yourself up to new ideas, new people, and new careers. Don’t be afraid to make some new connections, introduce yourself to leaders in your field, and ask for mentorship and guidance. You won’t regret it. 


Feeling clear-headed and motivated, this is your month to focus exactly on what you need to do with your time, Aries. Say no to any and all distractions and focus on your end game. Make space in your schedule to let your mind tackle what you want to have wrapped up before the end of the year. Feeling inspired? Pay attention! Listen to your inner voice that’s leading you to take up more space in the public sphere. Plant some proverbial seeds for what you’d like to manifest in your life in the coming year. Also, taking time off from so much time on social media is never a bad thing. Clear out your digital “closet” — delete those old duplicate photos, years-old messages, and DMs from your ex. This will create space in your life for what’s yet to come. 


You may be feeling particularly emotional as the month kicks off. If you’re feeling like you need more cozy days and relaxation time, take it! Now is not the time to compare yourself to what others are doing (or not doing). Focus on your mental and physical well-being. Focus on what you want in your life and don’t worry about keeping up with the Joneses. If your insecurities are coming to the surface more often than you’d like, it’s okay to sit with them for a minute before releasing them. Be gentle and patient with yourself. Unfollow any social media pages and accounts that don’t “spark joy” and instead make you feel terrible. Find new sources of inspiration and take a break from the doom scrolling for good. 


This is a big month for you, Gemini. Any decisions you make this month will have lingering effects into 2021. What are you tired of putting up with? What are you yearning to do differently? What are you ready to experience in the coming months? Take the time to put some serious thought into these questions so that you can shape the direction the next year is going to go for you. Stay open to new ideas; inspiration may hit in the strangest of ways. Spend time writing your thoughts and feelings out into a journal. Set aside time each week to connect with your inner self to find the way for your goals and dreams to become a reality. 


You’re ready for change now, so why wait to set your new year resolutions? This is time for you to build new, healthy habits that will carry you throughout 2021. Be firm not only with yourself about these new habits but those around you. Boundaries are important for you this month — though they are hard for you to set and keep because of feelings — but it is imperative to set them and hold them. Everyone needs to hear your honest truth — including you! Set new priorities for your health and happiness this month and know that everything will fall into place exactly as it should. 


This is a powerful month for you to put yourself out there, Leo, in a creative way. If you’re sitting on new creative ideas, let them out and free. This month’s astrology supports all of your creative endeavors, including sharing them. There is potential here for you to grow your audience (or build one from scratch), so don’t be shy to put yourself out there. People need what you’re offering! Let inspiration take the lead this month. Create a strategy for your creative path in the coming months. What do you hope to accomplish? How do you hope to be seen in the world? Work out your key goals and focus on those. The rest will fall into place. 


It’s time to break out of the old routines and habits that have been holding you back, dear Virgo. Make space for yourself this month. Don’t make plans if you don’t have to. Never before has there been a better time/excuse for alone time. Leave room in your life to see what shows up to fill this space; you may be surprised by what (or who) comes your way. Keep your heart and mind open and be gentle on yourself. Not every moment of every day needs to be spent being productive. This is your time to really relax and create space in your life for the new beginnings promised in the coming months.


Your life feels in flux these days, and now’s a good time to take stock of just how different your life looks now than it did at the start of the year. Let go of what’s holding you back and not lighting you up — even if it’s someone (or something) that made your whole world light up months prior. You’re going through an evolution of the soul right now, and it’s time to let go of what’s taking up space in your mind and heart that is no longer serving you. Give thanks for what you once loved but no longer, and open up space for new. Set intentions for what (and who) you want to invite in your life in 2021. 


After a year of uncertainties and holding back, you’re on fire now, Scorpio. Trust yourself and the decisions you’ve made that have brought you to this point. This year brought you many roadblocks and heartaches, but the path forward is clearer now, as are your intentions for what you want to bring into your life and build into your days. Stay determined and enjoy the journey. Remember that life doesn’t always have to be a struggle; it’s okay to take breaks to relax and enjoy some downtime. Treat yourself. Do something for you that feels completely luxurious and frivolous. You’ve earned it.
