Capricorn (December 22nd to January 20th)
This could be a golden week for you, but only if you’re willing to give it your all and veer slightly off the beaten path. One of the darker myths surrounding goats in Western culture is that of the scapegoat. The scapegoat was to take the sins of ancient Hebrew people into the desert as a sacrifice. That definitely sucked for the goat, and we have no proof that this improved things for the people. But the idea behind making something a sacrifice by letting it roam free is worth noting, especially this week. You may have to let yourself dip a bit into something wild or some kind of wilderness, whatever that represents for you, to draw your success closer to home. I can smell it on you, and it doesn’t smell like wet mohair. It’s sweet, Capricorn.
