Capricorn - December 2018
How are you, Capricorn?! It’s time to let the world know you’ve arrived in December, as Mars spends the month fighting for air time in your communication sector! This is a time to say exactly what’s on your mind, and you will be quick to defend yourself and others in topics of conversation that are close to your heart. Supporting vulnerable people to communicate their needs will also be a strength during this transit, you will be especially conscious of their plight when Mars conjuncts compassionate Neptune between the 1st and 17th. This sensitivity to others’ needs will enhance your spiritual and psychic awareness, so it’s a great time to work on this aspect of yourself and fine tune your intuition. These two planets do square the new Moon of the 7th, however, a time when highly confidential revelations from someone you know could make you feel a little uncomfortable. You may also discover a secret about a neighbour or in-law around this time, and this will considerably alter your opinion of them.
Uranus is back in your domestic zone this month for a brief interlude which will last until early March. That feeling of unrest which seemed to permeate family matters for the first half of 2018 might hit you again for a while, along with a desire for freedom from the constraints placed upon you by family responsibilities and domineering relatives. There is more work to be done before Uranus can let you off the hook here; think about what in domestic life is making you feel so restricted, and whether pushing against these restrictions may be hindering rather than helping. Are you fighting a battle which doesn’t need to be fought?! Uranus and the Moon’s nodes continue their confrontation across the heavens for the remainder of the year, and with the south node now embedded in your sign, you will need to try really hard to consider other people’s points of view.
Friendships will be easier to manage as we reach mid-month, with Mercury turning direct here on the 7th before leaving for pastures new on the 12th. This first fortnight of December is all about putting right any wrongs which were unintentionally created by Mercury’s retrograde spell in November. Plans or promises which were made during the last week in October and seemed to unravel last month will also be back on track at this time. Saturn connecting with Venus between the 7th and 24th continues to send some very responsible and considerate friends into your social circle; people seem to be cropping up all over the place now who have something important to teach you or tell you. You may not realise it but they are learning from you too; make the most of these new and intense friendships and listen carefully to what the universe is trying to say.
The full Moon on the 22nd lights up your house of relationships, illuminating all those difficult issues that you had hoped you could sweep under the carpet and forget about! This is a time for dealing with relationship problems, and it’s a good idea to get these problems out of the way before you head into the festive week. The north node will help you here, pushing you to work on your partnerships with others and spend more time sharing ideas and feelings. You may feel at this stage that all you ever do is focus on your loved one’s needs, but there is more work to do here, as you continue to work on co-operation and compromise. You can do it! Have a fantastic December!
