Capricorn [December 22nd to January 20th]
#MeTime: You build your net worth through networking efforts for the first half of the month. Or you just socialize. There’s a pullback at the 2nd half of the month after Saturn and Mercury retrograde in the same week. Ease into that pullback so that it’s not too jarring for friends and associates.
#Heartstrings: Enough is not said about the “secretive” nature of Capricorns. Capricorns often don’t tell because they may not exactly know what’s going on. It’s not as planned or clear as the secrecies of other signs. So be sure to say “I don’t know” when you don’t know. Otherwise, people may take your pullback a lot more personally than they should.
#MoneyMoves: New initiatives at work are well favored during the first week of February, especially after the Aquarian new moon at the top of the month. The wonkiness of Mercury’s retrograde on the 23rd may affect communication a little more than usual, but don’t be too dismayed by the adjustment. Mercury retrogrades mean you have to change up how you communicate, or in this case, to communicate with a little more empathy in mind than efficiency.
