Capricorn - January 2018
Happy Birthday, lovely goats! The Sun is joined in your sign by a whole host of heavenly bodies in January, so this really is the time of year to focus on what you want to achieve in 2018! Venus is meandering through this area until the 18th, and she will connect with the new Moon of the 17th, a time for thinking about your physical appearance and making the best of yourself. You may go for a brand new image at this time, although with Venus in square with Uranus, family members may not be happy about the changes you are making. This is about you and how you can feel energised and more comfortable with the way you look, so do what you have to do. With the Sun and Venus in conjunction with Pluto during the days up to the 17th, the general mood will be of transformation, so these changes could significantly alter your outlook on life. Connections with Mars and Jupiter from the 5th to 16th may also take you to a new social club or group, you will be particularly interested in meeting people now who are on a similar spiritual journey to you.
The full Moon on the 7th illuminates your house of relationships, and this is a good time to step outside your own thoughts and look at how your reactions are influencing your love life. Relationships which have struggled over Christmas could end, but with the Moon in trine with Mars, there is a good chance that you will part on good terms, and eventually you may even manage to create a casual friendship out of that left over emotion. We also see a second full Moon this month on the 31st, and this will be a powerful lunar eclipse. Money matters are your focus here, most notably money that you borrow from others, such as mortgages, loans and credit cards. Financial plans to pay off a debt which began around the last solar eclipse in summer, should reach a finale now. If you’re struggling, you will find support from unlikely sources.
Uranus turns direct in your domestic area on the 3rd, therefore those unexpected twists and turns in family life will be back on the agenda! There are some positive vibrations around to help turn unwelcome shocks into tolerable surprises. Mercury and Uranus in trine between the 1st and 11th will bring exciting and eccentric visitors to your house and the atmosphere will be one of originality and intelligence. Your interest in gadgets and electrical equipment for your home will increase, and you will be looking for something modern and clever to accessorise your surroundings. Psychic influences around your family will be strong and you will have a natural instinct for what they need. Just watch for disputes between the 9th and 18th when Uranus squares the Sun; young people will feel particularly rebellious now and managing everyone’s feelings could be tough.
Once Mercury hits Capricorn on the 12th, you will feel like communicating your ideas to the world, and it’s important that you are around like-minded others with whom you can share opinions and have intellectual conversations. Mentally, you will be firing on all cylinders, and it’s a good time for categorising, analysing and processing data. Administration tasks will also be easier to complete. Mercury and Saturn connecting from the 12th to 19th could make you rather cautious in conversation, so these aren’t the best of days for socialising. You will want to ensure your facts are right before you speak, so this may slow down your reaction times too. Have a great January!
