It's supposed to be the most wonderful time of the year, and yet a strange gloominess fills the air. Could it be the thought of starting a brand-new decade? Or are you struggling with the idea of saying goodbye to yet another year? Perhaps it's both, but your winter solstice 2019 horoscope is here to give you a powerful prelude of what's to come in 2020.
Winter starts on Dec. 21, upon the sun's shift into serious Capricorn. Capricorn is a symbol of structures, foundations, government, institutions, and authority figures. Its energy is stern and pragmatic, but in the end, it teaches you the meaning of hard work and discipline. Despite this being a zodiac description of the Capricorn archetype, its personality is still very much aligned with the winter season. Dark and cold, this is a season for hibernation and self-reflection. It's when you look back at everything you've learned and how much you've matured within the past year, in hopes of making things better in the upcoming year. Life is cyclical and this is the end of a chapter.
