Capricorn brings Love, Abundance and Stability to your Goals

We will be able to bring love, abundance, and stability to the goals, work, and strategic planning...

As we move into January, we will be going forward into the second decan of Capricorn, and that means we will be able to bring love, abundance, and stability to the goals, work, and strategic planning that we implemented over the last several days. It should be easy for us to do, as the celestial energy is decidedly masculine and therefore action taking with all planets except Neptune in a masculine or Mars oriented sign.

With transiting Jupiter conjunct Mars in Scorpio, the will and drive will be present to overcome obstacles. They trine Neptune, so a level of perspective and magic will exist as we move through our day. Today's configuration starts with Uranus and ends with Mars, so don't be surprised if there are sudden starts and stops, but understand that you must finish anything that comes your way. This is an action planet in an action-oriented sign, even if it does not seem that way at first. 

Concerning prominent Saturnian energy, completion is critical. You may have to take a Spartan approach to various areas in your life: cutting out what is unnecessary, learning to implement healthy processes and stick to them until they become habits, and understanding how to be fair with yourself and others in your life.

Fairness is essential with Uranus, because many confuse being nice with being fair, or putting self over Soul or the well being of others (Uranus had his eldest sons locked away for fear of losing power to them). Being able to discern between individualization for the sake of it and being unique in bringing fresh, constructive ideas for the good of all is one of the main themes of Uranus. Creativity is essential to this planet (Uranus did give birth to the Giants and the Titans). This time brings opportunities for creative solutions to dilemmas concerning money, personal potency, and truth, Self-love, sensuality, and sexuality, as well as communication and your family or sense of nurturing.

Capricorn brings nurturing to others in a salt-of-the-Earth kind of way, with its natives making sure that they are competent at work as to lessen the probability of getting fired, the bills paid, everyone has their flu shot, the fridge stocked, and that the house is heated. While this is typical of natives with Mars in Capricorn, this is how many with Moon in Capricorn, Moon aspecting Saturn, Venus in Capricorn, and Venus aspecting Saturn may feel most at home. 

These may not be the most exciting expressions for other signs or aspects as there seems to be less emotion involved, but the dryness, or "lack of emotion" is crucial: over emotion interferes with calm execution. Imagine if every NBA player second thought every shot? There would be no game. For those who have this energy, there is a joy in being able to cover the "basics" so that attention can be freed and placed on different more enjoyable areas if needed. These behaviors are not the detachment you see in other signs. It's a postponement, even showing signs of clinical depression. For this reason, Capricorns and those with Saturnian energy must take the time to play, journal, or take a walk, even if the "shoulds" in your mind say otherwise.

One day, Saturn decided to reintroduce himself to her and she has honed this interest for the last ten years. Riya lives in San Diego.
