Capricorn The Goat (Dec. 21-Jan. 19)
Mercury travels rapidly through your sign until Jan 27. During this period, there likely will be greater emphasis on communications, errands and other short distance travels. Your mind will be quick and your attitude persuasive. Your mind is loaded to the brim with intensity of purpose.
For All Signs: Venus, known to the ancients as the goddess of love, makes an unusual number of aspects to the other planets this week. This suggests that many of us will be preoccupied with issues and interests concerning our involvement with others. Venus rules not only romantic love, but also the principle of relatedness among people, whatever that relationship may be. The free-flowing aspects of Venus this week favor nonsexual friendships. The tenser aspect is connected to our closest intimates, the ones with whom we share our sexuality or our money and material resources. These two human interests, sex and finances, lend themselves to overt and subtle issues of control. During tension aspects of Venus, we are more easily drawn into battles over power, unless we consciously circumvent the impulse to manipulate others.
Aries: New Year's resolutions concerning health and fitness are going well. Keep it up! Your reflexes are on target, too. You will prevail in almost any competition. This is a good time to make adjustments in your life routines so that they will reflect what you really want to accomplish. You can easily stay on target with your goals now.
Taurus: Social and romantic life is favored this week. You may be mixing business and pleasure in a pleasant combination. This is a good time to discuss issues within a relationship because you are of steady mind and likely to be realistic, in relation to yourself as well as others. You intend to keep your promises.
Gemini: You are experiencing a major change in the areas of shared resources, investments, alimony or inheritance. At this time, you are mentally quarreling with yourself or with others over finding a solution to the problem. You want things as they were and that is not possible. Ask your Supervising Self for a perspective change.
Cancer: It is possible you will feel a sense of fatigue this week. Maybe something has caused you to be disappointed with yourself. Don't take the blues seriously or worry about yourself. In a few days you will feel much better. It is a temporary mood swing. Get some extra rest. Stay in touch with good friends.
Leo: You have a sense of physical strength at this time that will be especially beneficial if you are exercising or in any type of competition. This is also a particularly good time to organize your desk, closets, drawers or files. Eliminating waste of any kind will give you a sense of refreshment.
Virgo: You want answers and you may insist on having them right now, in spite of the fact that you are irritating the person who has the answer. Alternatively, you may be brooding over a child or a lover. There is an element of obsession here that may be beyond the norm. Do not let it take over your good sense.
Libra: You are bringing a creative work to a favorable conclusion now. It may be symbolic of all the work you have done on yourself in the last three years. For some Libras, this may be a time of positive culmination for one of your children. You have several aspects that favor romance, the arts and things of beauty.
Scorpio: It is of paramount importance that you control your mouth this week. Although you have an opinion about whatever is happening, let it go and say nothing unless asked for it. Being "right" is not as important as maintaining human relations. Later, you can take action to correct what you perceive is wrong, but now you will be challenged to a fight.
Sagittarius: You are in an especially cordial frame of mind at this time, and likely to invite people to your home, or to share whatever you have to offer. Your spirits are high and you have a need to be social. You are interested in whatever feels luxurious, looks beautiful or tickles the senses. Going overboard would be all too easy!
Aquarius: That which has been a joy in the past is coming to a close during this period. You recognize that its time is over and you are accepting about it, but a bit sad. This could be a person departing your life, or a last fling with an artistic pursuit. It might even be a special treasure that you feel the need to give away.
Pisces: Your attitude about yourself is not altogether accurate right now. You may think way too much of your ideas, or alternately, you may see yourself as lower than scum. Neither one is accurate and you should probably not make decisions of any importance this week.
