The almighty dollar is calling your name, Capricorn, as energetic Mars blazes a path through your income sector for the first time in two years. Truth be told, when Mars enters this part of a person’s chart it can spur over-the-top spending. But this time the red-hot planet is tempered by disciplinarian Saturn, telling you to save money for your future needs. Venus will also be working on your behalf. What many people don’t realize is that Venus is one of two planets that governs profits (Jupiter is the other) and it joins Mars on Wednesday for a three-week stay.
As a result this is one of the best times in 2016 to make financial progress, holidays be damned. Venus is known for bringing things to you rather than you having to hunt them down, so it’s possible that a job offer or raise could come your way. Hey, this is no gift from the cosmos. You’ve worked hard for this and you’ve earned it. Likewise, bright ideas for making more could pop into your head, so jot them down and don’t dismiss anything as foolish.
Because Venus is such a social planet, and Neptune is in your house of mingling, one of the best ways to score more dinero right now is to network at industry events, seminars and holiday parties. Home based businesses are also a smart idea, and on Tuesday you might get hit with sudden inspiration for a profitable business you can run from your abode.
Friday is excellent for making discreet inquiries about a job at another company or the possibility of moving to another department where you work now. Self-employed people should be working hard behind the scenes, keeping major initiatives away from the eyes of competitors.
Saturday is interesting as it brings two contrasting aspects. For over a year now, you have hosted serious Saturn in the house of your subconscious mind. This can be a draining position as you are forced to face your demons: fears, guilt, sorrows and negative thought patterns, to name a few. Toxic habits and ties need to be cut, to be replaced with happier alternatives. Well, the Sun and Saturn meet up on Saturday, with El Sol shining its light on what needs to be excised. But despite the fact that this can be sobering, to say the least, it can also be a game changer. If you want to travel to distant lands you have to leave the shore, the saying goes. As a result, if you long for serenity and contentment you need to cut out the crap from your life first.
But Saturday can also be highly social, even romantic, as chatty Mercury in Capricorn shows off your best side to the world. It signals glamorous and amorous Neptune, so expect to be admired and to enjoy the company of others.
