Winter solstice and rare great conjunction brings ‘Christmas Star

Monday, December 21, 2020, beginning at 5:02 AM ET, the Winter Solstice occurs in the Northern Hemisphere. This marks the shortest day and longest night of the year, as well as the official first day of winter. But 2020 also brings a rare astronomical event called the Great Conjunction of Jupiter and Saturn, also called “the Christmas Star.” These two planets will appear so closely aligned from our vantage point on Earth that they will appear as if a single star. This conjunction will be easily visible with the unaided eye for the next two weeks.

The last time this conjunction occurred was 400 years ago, but it was not visible from Earth then. The last time it happened in the night sky was nearly 800 years ago, according to NASA.

Horoscopes for December 21:

Astrologer Aria Gmitter of Your Tango, gives her love forecast, writing: “The Sun moves into Capricorn, and so we are dedicated and determined to make things in life work, in love and life all around. The Moon shifts from fickle Pisces into Aries. In Aries, we can see how love or a mindset can turn on a dime. But, this can be a great thing for relationships. A little spark can be reborn for some zodiac signs.”

Astrologer Patrick Arundell writes: “The Sun moves into practical Capricorn from today for a four week stay. It’s time to take stock and consider our plans for the coming year. Plus, a Quarter Moon in Aries can indicate a decision concerning a new project. Should we continue? If it is going well, yes!”

Astrologer Nadia Gilchrist of Ruby Slipper Astrology explores the implications of the First Quarter Square between the Aries Moon and Capricorn Sun. Gilchrist writes: “The First Quarter Square triggers discomfort which demands action – bold new scenarios challenge what’s established. The old structures are crumbling, although taking that first step forward will feel difficult…Nonetheless, if you stick with the old plan it simply won’t work.”
