Here's What The December 4 Solar Eclipse Means If You're An Earth Sign

Welcome to Sagittarius season! Just as those born under this fire sign are known to be great adventurers, creative storytellers, and people who marvel and wonder at all the beauty in the world, this season inspires the same feeling of possibility and hope in all of us (via ArtNet). Interestingly, as we enter into this passionate, joyful season, so does Mercury, the planet that rules communication and mental clarity (via Bustle). This creates even more opportunity for meaningful introspection and insights into what is truly calling you and how best to chase your dreams.   

A major celestial event happening early this season is the solar eclipse, which will peak on December fourth. Interestingly, this will coincide with the new moon. Normally, new moons are an ideal time for manifestation and seed-planting, but those looking to get the most out of the energies this time around should approach this eclipse and new moon differently. This is the time to expect and be open to sudden shifts in your perspective, sudden bolts of lighting that create clarity, and new doors opening. Take this time to be introspective and consider your deepest-held beliefs, plans, and dreams. What is still serving you? What isn't? This is the perfect time to take bold action toward change. 

What to expect if you're an earth sign

While there are some general effects of this solar eclipse that we are all likely to feel to some degree, how we each individually will respond to it will depend greatly on our respective astrological signs. If you're an earth sign, here's what you should know (via In Style):

If you're a Taurus, born between April 20 and May 20, this eclipse will most heavily affect your emotional bonds. Where it comes to your closest relationships, you'll find yourself newly inspired to ask for exactly what you need and want to feel most supported, seen, and heard by the people who matter most in your life.

If you're a Virgo, born between August 23 and September 22, this new moon solar eclipse will bring up some deep, old stuff. We're talking wounds and traumas that have been left unhealed and maybe even unrecognized for a long, long time. It's time to face these head on, heal them, and finally step through a new door into a brighter future. 

If you're a Capricorn, born between December 22 and January 19, this celestial event will touch upon your spirituality. Regardless of your beliefs or religion, you'll be able to reach inward with more clarity, and connect with your higher self and your intuition with unusual power. This will allow you for seeing the best next steps to chase your brightest dreams.
