Reading time: just 3 minutes that may make your week easier.
06-01-2020 to 06-07-2020
This week, you’ll get to do “quality control” in a few key areas of your life—and the best part is, anything that’s not up to snuff can be brought up to par. Start with this all-important question (to a Capricorn, anyway): Do you have enough creative freedom in your job? And…does it leave you enough time for other vital pursuits, like your own wellness, fitness and self-care? Don’t be afraid to be brutally honest this Wednesday, June 3, as the illuminating Sun merges with aesthetic Venus in your sixth house of work, service and well-being. Just check in with yourself to see what “grades” you’d give your own level of satisfaction. If any area is coming up short—whether because of work or self-induced—see what you can do to turn that around. If you’ve been working from home and loving it, could you make that a more permanent thing, or at least build in more flextime when you do go back to the office? If you’ve dropped the ball, don’t beat yourself up; just get back on the wellness wagon with video classes or perhaps a virtual trainer or coach.
Earlier, on Tuesday evening, love planets Venus (retrograde) and Mars lock into a tense square, which could drive up your energy and motivation while also leaving you depleted. The thing NOT to do is swing to extremes. We’re not saying finding a point of equilibrium will be easy, but you CAN hold it as a goal, even as your emotions and passions surge like a storm-tossed sea. Under this complicated mashup, your logic and good judgment may be MIA—at a time when you need them most. Of course, for your normally buttoned-down sign, giving in to these “moments” can be liberating. But with Mars in your flirtatious third house and Venus in your traditional sixth, you'll need to exercise self-restraint so you don't get totally overwhelmed. This goes double for coupled Caps. Even if your solid union has slipped into a state of doldrums, take that as a sign that it needs a little relationship Rx—not as an excuse to go on a “fishing expedition.”
Friday’s skies are an altogether different animal, Sea Goat! This marks the occasion of the year's only full moon in Sagittarius—also a lunar eclipse, the first in a two-year eclipse series on the Gemini-Sagittarius axis. While this might SOUND stimulating and exciting, for you, Sagittarius rules your twelfth house of healing, rest, surrender and release. You may sense that you’re still hanging on to something that’s preventing you from feeling truly free, but only you—or a good therapist or coach—can help you access that. The thing is, you probably know it’s time to move on. So the issue might be not looking at WHAT you’re clinging to but WHY. If you're consciously ready to walk away from a person, behavior or limiting belief that's blocking your growth, this lunar lift can shine a light on the path forward. Ripping off that Band-Aid won't be the easiest thing you've ever done, but it may actually be the most cathartic.
