There’s a lot to love about some of the major planetary activity happening over November and December, including and not limited to the luckiest day of the year, according to some astrologers.

So, winter can suck. Especially if you live in a city and are public-transit bound (we see you, city-dwellers). However, the cosmic weather is looking BRIGHT this winter. There’s a lot to love about some of the major planetary activity happening over November and December, including and not limited to the luckiest day of the year, according to some astrologers. If you want to clear out the clutter and start upgrading your life (what better time to get on THAT than just before a new year), then this winter’s cosmic vibes can help you. Here are some key dates to take note of.

Jupiter in Sagittarius (Nov. 8 – Dec. 2, 2019) invites us to expand our horizons.

For the next year, Jupiter, the planet that rules luck and growth, is at home in the optimistic sign of Sagittarius. This planet / sign duo wants to open up new doors and expand our experience of life. Jupiter grows everything it touches and depending on where it is in your birth chart, it’ll go to work on a specific part of your life. However, this is a big, resonant vibe (think: butterfly effect), so you could harness it’s expansion to grow your own specific intentions, whatever they may be. If you’ve been considering going international in your business, or if you’ve wanted to devote some time to travel, this could be your year. Make a bucket list. Dream big. Ditch the word fear. It’s time to spread those wings.

Mars in Pisces (Nov. 15 – Dec. 31) can help us make headway on our creative dreams.

With Mars, the planet that rules desire and combat, in the intuitive, dreamy sign of Pisces, the way we take action shifts. We can actually get more done during the holiday season by being less competitive or focused on ‘winning at all costs,’ and being more collaborative and compassionate. Mars in Pisces wants us to think about how our actions affect the people around us, and how we can make the experience of life better for EVERYONE, not just us. In a way, it can help us think really big. If there was ever a time to take action on a wild creative dream, or a spiritual or healing mission you might have, Mars in Pisces can help you make progress in those realms.

Mercury retrograde (Nov. 16 – Dec. 6) is an opportunity to release the bullshit.

This notorious event may be associated with communication breakdowns and travel shit-tangles, but ultimately, this planet’s backspin wants to help us release the bullshit. It highlights the areas where things just aren’t working so we can eliminate the clutter standing between us and our fully aligned life. So when emails get deleted, phones smash, and buses take forever, pause, step back from what’s happening, and ask yourself: ‘is this really working for me?’ This schedule? This living situation? This relationship? If it’s not? THANK YOU, NEXT. Don’t let Mercury retrograde’s lessons pass you by – they can be really life-changing – and positive!

The sun moves out of Scorpio and into Sagittarius, which means the start of Sag season (Nov. 22 – Dec. 21), which is a time to GET EXCITED ABOUT LIFE.

Where for the past month, Scorpio season had us diving into our deepest feels and considering what it all means (v. intense energy to this one), Sagittarius season takes over and says, ‘let’s all lighten up and just have a really good time.’ Sagittarius thrives on adventure, learning and experiencing what the world has to offer. Now, right before the holidays, we have this beautiful 4-week opportunity to remember: we only live once! Plan an epic holiday party or outing for your office or pals, splurge on a romantic getaway for you and bae, or get an exciting personal project off the ground. Whatever makes you feel like you’re living to the fullest, do it now.

On Nov. 26th, the sun and Jupiter gift us the luckiest day of the year.

According to some astrologers, the day the sun and Jupiter meet up in the sky every year is a day dreams can come true. The sun rules our innate strengths, and Jupiter rules luck, so this is a day to be confident and shine our light on the world around us. Is there something you’ve been wanting to do all year? Save this date for it.

Let’s end off 2018 with a bang, right? Here’s to laying a solid foundation for a bright 2019.
