Enough making excuses for people already, Capricorn! The moon aligns with your stern cosmic ruler, Saturn, demanding that you hold the slackers accountable. If someone has wronged you or hasn’t been pulling their weight, you don't have to make it all better (or quietly distance yourself). Stop carrying other people's burdens. If you don't, Saturn will remind you of the impact on your happiness and mental health. SO not worth it!
What's the big idea? Go ahead and answer that, Capricorn—really! Today's visionary alignment of clever Mercury and inspirational Jupiter could inspire you to make a huge career move or get honest about your financial situation. Struggling? Ask for the support you need. If someone solicits your opinion at work (and even if they don't), speak up. Your insightful comments could nab the attention of a VIP, or you could be tapped as an "influencer" in your field. If you've been tight-lipped about money or your professional aspirations, start talking. You have so much to offer, but if you don't tell people, how will they ever know?
Is someone trying to clip your wings? The moon in Capricorn has you itching for some solo adventures. But just as you're about to take flight, a square from Venus, Mars AND Mercury could find you facing off with an overbearing or anxious woman in your world. She's keeping you grounded for a reason, Capricorn. Yes, her antics are irritating, but take the time to find out why. Perhaps she simply needs some reassurance—or needs to clear the air on a pending issue. Talk it out and become aligned again. When you do, she'll become your most devoted ally and always have your back.
Getting cold feet? Under today's stars you could suddenly feel cautious about a situation that you were recently excited to explore. Pay attention to your instincts and do your homework before jumping in with both feet. Once you do that, it may be easier to give people the benefit of the doubt. Look within and ask: Does this opportunity, no matter how great, align with your values and priorities?
Self-care is the order of the day. Today's gentle angle between the moon and indulgent Venus flashes the cosmic green light to pamper yourself after a long week. Smooth out some of the rough edges at work with a few drops of peppermint oil on your temples. Rebook any obligations for the evening, and nurture yourself at Chez Capricorn. Treat yourself to home-cooked comfort food, and then soak away the day's stressors in a lavender salt bath. And then silence your phone, curl up with your Kindle and make it an early night.
Let the dialogue begin! Your stoic sign could morph into a total chatterbox under this weekend's expressive starmap. On Saturday, talkative Mercury enters your third house of communication, sparking synergies and light-bulb epiphanies for the next couple weeks. But the epic moment arrives Sunday, when a Pisces solar (new moon) eclipse brings page-turning news, an eye-opening conversation or a burst of inspiration. Since the third house rules neighborhoods, you might get more involved in local events or move to a new part of town. (“Mayor Capricorn” has a ring to it…) Your social life ignites—but watch for tension at home. Sunday features an angsty Mars-Uranus meetup in your domestic fourth house, provoking tension with roommates, relatives or a difficult woman. Your emotions could flare up out of nowhere, and anger could topple your normal composure. Ramp up the self-care so you don't lash out.
