Capricorn [December 22nd to January 20th]

#MeTime: You may be more pensive than usual around your birthday. It’s likely that you feel the need to proceed cautiously with plans, but you don’t have any clear reasons why you would feel this. I would say your intuition is correct, but you might think you need to be cautious for longer than you do. After the 2nd week, you’ll be able to move forward with more glide in your step.

#Heartstrings: You’re well practiced in standing your ground, but this month you’re asked to help others stay firm. It’ll be a delicate balance helping someone be capable, but at the same time feel unconditionally supported. That’s not your usual style. You might fear that someone might lean too hard on you. Well, that’s where you may have to give a demonstration of standing your ground,

#MoneyMoves: I always felt that the cliché “patience is a virtue” was missing a rejoinder, like “but too much of it is just laziness.” But I don’t think the cliché really needs a rejoinder when motivation is matched with striking at the right time. You can be a virtuoso with timing, so just make sure you stay motivated.
