Capricorn (December 22nd to January 20th)

Last week, Venus went into your sign and it’ll be where she’ll stay until March 2014. That lays the ground to continue some of the interpersonal/relationship building work you’ve been doing, off and on, for the last several months. Right now you’re on than off, so, of course, that’s going to push more emo buttons for you than you usually like pressed.  Your emotions are what inspire you, believe it or not; but you’re the sign that teaches us that inspiration must also be matched with perspiration and having another “-ration” on deck—rationality itself. This doesn’t always go over with some folks, so keep your cool and your patience.  You will see that firming up relationships, whether personal or business related, does pay off in material and immaterial ways in the not too distant future.
