Your birthday season may be weeks away but start dolling yourself up now, Capricorn! Glam girl Venus enters your sign on Friday, urging you to put your best foot forward. If you need an “image upgrade” now’s the time to get going! Freshen up your makeup, your hairstyle or color and buy yourself some new clothes. Your life is moving forward in big ways and you need to look the part of a winner. The saying “fake it till you make it” applies here if you’re not exactly feeling self-confident. That will change, though, as we get closer to Christmas time and the annual period of the goat.
Venus does govern plastic surgery and minor “tweaks”, like Botox and fillers, so if you want to indulge in such treatments, go for it. On Monday a happy Sun-Pluto meeting will help you focus on all of your big goals for the next year. Since the Sun is the orb that douses you with authority, and Pluto is all about metamorphosis, the next year promises to be a game changer.
Here’s another early birthday gift for you: the entry of dynamic Mars into your income sector on Wednesday. This is terrific news as Mars hasn’t visited this part of your chart in over two years. Take some of the ideas that you’ve been mulling over for increasing your earnings (and savings) and start putting them into action. Considering that Venus has just entered your house of self-image, you couldn’t ask for a better time to look for a new job, ask the boss for more responsibility or research starting your own business.
Just beware of going on spending sprees in the weeks ahead as Mars in this part of the sky can ratchet up your buying patterns. Next week’s full moon in Taurus is all about enjoying life and having fun, but do so responsibly.
A present that you can give yourself is the gift of serenity. When Mercury enters your twelfth house of the subconscious mind on Saturday, you will be motivated to become more centered and content. While this may mean ridding yourself of old mental baggage, it’s worth it to put in the effort. If you need to speak with a licensed professional, such as a therapist, do so. Otherwise find peace through meditation, long walks in nature and by studying metaphysics.
