Is it getting hot in here—or THERE—Capricorn? Solo Goats may be kicking up their hooves in anticipation of a passionate spring fling on Monday, April 22, as the confident Sun hooks up with venturesome Uranus. For the past eight years, this merger has been happening in Aries and your home zone, so those transformative moments may have affected your living circumstances or familial relationships. Now, for the first time in your life, this alignment is taking place in sensual Taurus and your fifth house of lust, passion and romance. The Sun wants what it wants when it wants it, and with unpredictable Uranus in the picture, it’s hard to know what might happen—which can be a double-edged sword. On the one hand, it’s good for your cautious sign to be spontaneous and let love rule (even if it doesn’t lead to a forever thing). But you don’t want to throw the baby out with the bathwater and lose your head as you fall into the arms of a smooth-talking Casanova. Speaking of bambinos, the fifth house also rules fertility, so if you’re trying to get pregnant, this could be your moment! Heads-up to Caps NOT interested in that outcome: You’re just as susceptible, so take all necessary precautions. Because things could shift on a dime with your sweetie—one way or the other—stay awake and pay attention to what you say and how you react since you can’t control THEIR behavior.
On Wednesday, transformative Pluto, which is trooping through your sign from 2008 to 2024, swings into its annual retrograde, flashing the reminder that life’s only true constant is change. Over the past eleven years, you may have consciously been modifying anything from your personal style of expression to how you pursue your goals. For some Caps, these shifts have been subtle while for others, they’ve been nothing short of radical! Retrogrades, which are annual occurrences for most planets, can bring back elements of the past or give you an opportunity to reflect, review and reinvent anything that’s not in alignment with your current vision of where—and WHO—you’d like to be. This year’s reversal is in effect until October 3, and during that five-month period, Pluto's intensity should lessen enough to offer some mature perspective. But don't do anything rash. While there may be moments when you feel like it would just be easier to start from scratch, find the valuable parts and keep them. Rule of thumb: Go slowly, checking in with, and exploring, your own emotions and limiting beliefs every step of the way.
Good luck trying to gather all the facts or clearly articulate your needs this Saturday. Impromptu Mars is locked in a signal-scrambling square with nebulous Neptune in your sixth house of precision. Normally you’re clear-headed, but you might find yourself struggling to decide what to have for breakfast! Limit your stimulation by not multitasking (IRL and online) and focus your attention on one thing at a time. Even then you may be more disoriented than usual. The best use of this energy may be to do something creative or just brand-spanking new, like stepping up to a physical challenge or taking a ceramics class. Or grab a BFF or bae and wander, sans direction, and savor the surprises!
