It's a truth universally acknowledged that life never goes according to plan. Try as you might, there will always be external forces that lead you down a path you weren't expecting to take. As exciting as surprises may be, change is never easy; sometimes it can downright suck. Nevertheless, your December 2019 solar eclipse horoscope is here to remind you that the universe knows what it's doing, even if you haven't got the slightest clue.
In astrology, eclipses are more than a remarkable phenomenon in the sky. Eclipses can be the harbinger for major drama and abrupt revelations that alter the course of your life. Instead of a new moon, there will be a solar eclipse in Capricorn on Dec. 26 at 12:13 a.m. ET. I know an eclipse was definitely not on your Christmas wish list, but that's the thing about eclipses: Like it or not, they arrive to speed you up toward your ultimate destiny by provoking the most unexpected things to happen. Sometimes these things are everything you could have hoped for. Other times, they're the last things you wanted to happen. Either way, there's much to be learned from the lessons an eclipse tries to teach you, so embrace it.
This eclipse is part of a series of eclipses that are occurring on the Cancer-Capricorn axis. The last new moon solar eclipse took place six months ago, so take a moment to think back to where you were in July 2019. What was going on? What issues were you grappling with? What was on your mind? By the time this solar eclipse takes place, you may start to understand what this adventure has all been about. However, the journey is still far from over.
Every eclipse affects everyone's birth chart differently, but this one in particular is quite the loose cannon. For one thing, it forms a conjunction to expansive and exaggerating Jupiter, which means that whatever drama it erupts in your life should be quite the explosion. It also forms a trine to unpredictable Uranus while Venus — planet of love and luxury — forms a square to the same planet. This sends waves of unsteady energy to both your relationships and your finances. All you can do is ride these waves out.

The world might not feel like it's changing, but you certainly are. You cannot deny what your intuition is telling you. Your inner voice is getting louder and louder and it's pushing you to acknowledge the truth. Come to terms with what you already know.
