In the Time of Capricorn

By Holiday Mathis

December 17, 2017 6 min read

This week brings two momentous astrological moments involving the energy of Capricorn. First, Saturn, the sign ruled by Capricorn, returns to his homeland, an entrance that hasn't happened since 1988. Saturn takes 28 to 29 years to circle the sun and generally spends an average of 2.5 years in a sign. The second Capricorn happening of note is the winter solstice of Dec. 21. May your days be merry and bright.

ARIES (March 21-April 19). While your daily life is always changing with the new people, places and patterns you connect with, the essence of your soul is timeless and unchanging. This week will get hectic. When it all goes too fast, or seems too uncertain, remember what's inside you. At your core is a pure, perfect power source.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). With the number of coincidences that occur this week you may begin to get the idea you're some kind of undercover angel on a mission to affect destiny. Your activities will definitely have an impact on the timeline of others, featuring events that could never have happened were it not for you input, however small.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Psychic leaning is much like physical leaning. The support has to be strong and willing, or you all fall down. This is an excellent week to do a psychic structural review. Check your "beams" to make sure you're counting on the right people. Better yet, don't lean. Increased self-sufficiency will solve many things at once.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). The dilemmas abound, and there are controversial circumstances in your periphery, too. You're not the direct cause, and yet your mind will be wrapped up in it for the better part of the week. You might wonder about your approval rating, though such things are becoming less and less important to you.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You don't have to interact with someone in the usual ways — a conversation or real-world meeting — to have a meaningful experience. This week it's more about what a person represents to you. You will interact profoundly with an idea of another person and be changed for the better by a symbolic encounter.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). So, once again you'll find yourself in the position of not knowing where you're going or how to get there. But hey, you know people! And you know how to talk to them to find out what they want that you might be able to provide. That's the knowledge that will take you anywhere in the world.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You've experienced the many benefits that spring from being an amenable person with a stellar attitude — and you weren't even working on that at the time. The good vibes were a natural extension of your position and excitement for the task. Now older and wiser, you'll be tasked with conjuring the same fervor.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Finding happiness isn't always your top priority. There are complex issues at play. You're accountable to people who need you. But when it's your turn, and you do deem your own happiness as the most important factor, you'll attain it by either changing a circumstance, or changing your thoughts about it.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). In the presence of the extremely fascinating, it's not necessary to make a conscious choice to give full attention. In fact, it's hard to look away. There are many deeply fascinating aspects to what you're doing this week, though you should know that not everyone will understand the special context the way you do.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Sometimes you're the onion; sometimes you're the chef. This week you'll be both. In one instance you'll be an agent of taste who makes the whole thing work through some sacrifice of your being. In another instance, you'll be a magic maker who causes change and brings it all together... perhaps with a teary eye.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Your success this week will be determined by two things: first, your ability to set up the right expectation in the hearts and minds of others; and second, your ability to deliver on it. Keep in mind that the right expectation is one that accurately reflects what you'd like to give while serving the appetite of the recipient.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). People who are living inside fairy tales hardly ever realize it. You'll be the exception this week. There are many who, if they magically landed in your shoes, would feel that their wildest dreams have come true. You will vividly, gladly experience the force of your own lucky circumstances.

THIS WEEK'S BIRTHDAYS: You'll impress people by just being yourself, so there's no extra effort to make. They'll celebrate you for reasons you never even think much about. Your relaxed confidence inspires something magical. Next month your heart's music does a key change. You'll be drawn to new interests and the people who can boost your knowledge and skills. There's a financial spike in the first part of the year that you can reinvest in your project. A blending that is mutually beneficial happens in March.

Venus, Love and Masks

Venus, Love and Masks

By Holiday Mathis
We wear masks for a reason. Hiding is a protective defense. Just as it would be unwise for the catcher to go on the field without a mask, it is sometimes unwise for us to put our full sense of self on the line in environments that will not celebrate, reward or even tolerate our individuality.
