Capricorn (December 22nd to January 20th)

After the full moon on Wednesday, Pluto’s the planet to watch because he’s in your sign now. Forget what astronomers say about Pluto; astrologers still see it as a planet, and a very important one. Pluto basically gets us to beauty and truth by making us look and endure ugly stuff first. I was writing with a Capricorn buddy of mine recently and he couldn’t put his finger on what bothered him about the café we were in. He talked about the feng shui of the place, the service, etc. He wasn’t getting any work done. Then it hit me: the place was ugly, replete with industrial gray walls. We resolved never to write there together again. I know you like to attend to the bottom line, Cap, but also pay attention to “ugly” subtotals, too. You might be able to add a little more to make things more beautiful and truthful. Or figure out a good time to take stuff away.
