Happy December, Sag! You’re nearly through 2021. This year stretched you in ways you didn’t think possible, yet here you are. The month kicks off with a new moon in your sign — finally, some harmony in your personal sphere. Make the most of it by gathering your chosen family for some festive activities.

On December 18, there is a full moon in Gemini. Spread some cheer around within your friend group. On December 21, we enter Capricorn season and celebrate the Winter Solstice simultaneously. This is a great period to be reflective.

What made your year? What was the toughest thing you overcame? Write it down. Your ruler, Jupiter, is in direct motion this month and enters Pisces on December 28. Spend the dwindling days of 2021 making good on any promises you’ve yet to fulfill — including those you made to yourself.

December strain: What better choice for a December pick-me-up than the aptly named December Nights OG. When everything is getting dark, spark up a bowl of this hybrid for a balanced mix of body and cerebral effects.

This celestial pairing offers us a chance to focus on those closest to us. Call up your friends just to have a chat. Send some snail mail to a family member.

It doesn’t have to be fancy, your heart just has to be in it. On December 18, there is a full moon in Gemini. The glow of the full moon in this Air sign can make many emotional. Don’t give any negative self-talk the time of day, it will pass.

Aries

December is here, Aries! Things start off with a new moon in Sagittarius on December 4. Hunker down at the beginning of the month. This celestial combo is great but almost a little too sanguine. Don’t go counting your chickens before they hatch.

Your ruler, Mars, is direct this month. It enters Sagittarius on December 13. You’ll be craving new scenes, new food, new people for several weeks. Again, don’t over-commit to big events, especially if you have holiday plans. Kick back, drink some cocoa, take in a light show. New Year’s Day is right around the corner. Use all this optimistic, adventurous energy to plan something big for yourself in 2022.

December strain: December Nights OG is a timely hybrid for this time of year. When everything is getting dark, spark up a bowl of this hybrid for a balanced mix of body and cerebral effects.

On December 4, there is a new moon in Sagittarius. This is a great time to try some new foods, a new style, or a new friendship.

Happy Solstice, Gem! You’ve made it to the final stretch of the year. On December 4, there is a new moon in Sagittarius. A happy occasion to begin making plans for the new year. On December 13, your ruler — Mercury — enters Capricorn. You can look forward to feeling grounded and energized.

Speaking of Mercury, it is flying direct the entire month! Finally, some calm in your personal sphere. On December 18, there is a full moon in Gemini. This is a great time to wrap up any holiday planning or buying you may be doing. The New Year is lurking just behind the corner and the more you plan, the more prepared you’ll be. Yes, that sounds obvious but it’s amazing how easy it is to abandon the planning phase when things get tough. Don’t do it this month, Gem! You’ll be so glad you stuck to it.

December strain: The weather outside is frightful, but the weed is so delightful. Get in the winter mood with the help of some Snow Mountain this month. This indica strain has a delicious, herbal taste and smell and will keep you cozy through all your winter endeavors.
