December 20/21st is the Total Lunar Eclipse

A Total Lunar Eclipse will be visible after midnight Eastern Standard Time on December 21 in North and South America. The beginning of the total eclipse will be visible from northern Europe just before sunrise. The end of the total eclipse will be visible rising at sunset for Japan and northeastern Asia.
It will be the first total lunar eclipse in nearly 3 years, the last being on February 20, 2008.

During a Lunar Eclipse, the Earth gets between the Sun and the Moon, casting its shadow on the Moon. Solar eclipses occur during New Moons, and Lunar Eclipses occur during Full Moons. The eclipse of the Moon, when the light of the Moon mysteriously darkens at the luminous height of a Full Moon, has traditionally been viewed as a bad omen as it can awaken distinctly irrational responses.

A Solar Eclipse affects people on a more outward, public level. A Lunar eclipse will cause he Moon governs the emotional personality, rather than leadership, domestic matters so one can expect a deeper, more inward shift with this upcoming Lunar Eclipse.

Wherever an eclipse falls in your chart is an area of life that is going to undergo some change, or at least require more of your time and attention than usual for the next five months or so.
