Capricorn [December 22nd to January 20th]
#MeTime: After months of retrograding, Mars finally goes forward in your sign of wisdom, Virgo. So it’s only natural to wonder what could be some of the possible lessons you learned from Mars going retrograde and culminating with a face-off with Neptune, the planet of spirituality and inner illumination. For this pearl of wisdom, perhaps we don’t have to go any farther than a quote from fellow Capricorn, Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. He says, “Take the first step in faith. You don't have to see the whole staircase, just take the first step.” The best of plans (Virgo) won’t let you see the whole staircase, Capricorn, but faith eventually will. Work on remembering that lesson.
#Heartstrings: Your week is likely to find itself going from grindin’ to feeling grounded in your body. That highlights more pleasure for you to experience at the bottom half than the top. Just don’t get into any silly internal arguments of whether the glass is half-full or half-empty. It doesn’t matter: water’s in the glass for you to drink, if you want it. With the Moon languorously strolling into Taurus for a new moon, it suggests that you may be imbibing from life’s glass heartily and delightfully.
#MoneyMoves: The Sun in Aries faces off with Saturn in Libra at the top of the week. The face-off between these two can be a significant head-on collision in your psyche if you let it. The Sun wants to run off and do whatever the hell it wants, but Saturn presses you to “sitchyoazz down” and for you to keep your obligations to your fundamental intentions, to your roots. In other words, it’s a moment when you could be tempted to settle in a very subtle way—to shrug off your commitment to the work needed to get what you set out to get (ever so slightly) and shirk off the mantle of the destiny you know you’ve earned the right to wear. My advice: don’t settle.
