Woo-hoo! Birthday season is here, Capricorn. The mighty Sun rolls into your sign on Wednesday, crowning you the celestial favorite for the next four weeks. But before you leap into any new plans or start chasing dreams, you might want to engage in some serious reflection first.
It just so happens that Mercury is already in Capricorn and starts to go into retrograde motion on Monday, two days before the Sun arrives. So even though the focus is now on you in a big way, it’s wiser to really hold off on any major initiatives until you are sure what steps you want to take next.
Mercury will be moving backward through your sign until January 4th, at which time it reenters Sagittarius, a place where it was last month. Your thoughts will become even more focused then as you take a mental assessment as to what needs to stay and what (and whom) should go.
For now, consider your options carefully, and that goes for all areas of your life: health, love, money, fitness, friendships, volunteer work, pets, hobbies, your relationships with family members, travel–when planets are in your sign, they encourage you to take a complete inventory.
Spend the rest of 2016 quietly thinking about your next move, but hold off on major announcements and launches until around January 12th when Mercury has resumed direct motion again in your sign.
Helping matters along is a rare meeting on Saturday between Saturn and Uranus. This is a highly cathartic vibe, as these two planets are in houses that govern our emotional health. Perhaps this Christmas the best gift you can receive is peace of mind. How many people do you know who truly have it?
