Rarely does any major effort worth the making beget instant results. Yet it seems you’re feeling under pressure to produce them. Try to rest a little easier. Even professional magicians, who literally do pull rabbits out of hats, train for a while to perfect their skill. This week there’ll be a further change, which will probably come through as a piece of the puzzle you perhaps didn’t realize you were missing.
This week, a rare alignment between Jupiter in Scorpio and Pluto in your birth sign presents some unusual opportunity for success. You’ve had a taste of this the past week to 10 days, and you may already be on a roll. Think in terms of what biologists call a symbiotic relationship. What works for you must work for others, and what works for them will work for you.
Up and at ‘em, Capricorn! With all the activity in your sign, you must surely be buzzing with energy, feeling completely rejuvenated and…wait, why are you shutting yourself in your room and turning on the mood music? Actually, it is true that you’re probably in an unusually fertile moment, and receiving a lot of attention.
Your sign is somewhat famous for a priggish attitude toward sex. That’s funny, since you’re probably one of the more sexual people you know, even if you veil that with proper attire and an insistence on seeming prim, at nearly any cost (including resisting fun that might appear in any way untoward, or revealing your true desire). It’s time to throw that approach and all the theories that support it into a bonfire.
With your ruling planet Saturn now firmly in your sign, hopefully you’re beginning to feel considerably more like yourself. This week looks to present a fair few opportunities to rock this new you out on the town and dazzle (or at least entertain) your friends. Just remember that this is territory you’re still exploring, and don’t rush into anything if you feel too uncomfortable.
Stop yourself every time you notice yourself saying, “But what would my [mother/father/family] think?” This may be subtle; it may be below the level of tangible inner dialog, though the message will still come through. It might relate to any aspect of your personality from work-related choices to the fun you want to have to your most intimate relationships.
Saturn has returned home to your sign, which will feel good for at least three reasons. You’ll get some relief from your anxieties, which reached a peak in late 2017. Next, a missing part of you is now present and accounted for. Last is that you’re on track for completing many unfinished tasks — and letting go of the ones you don’t need to do. Get that bit out of the way.
On Monday Venus joins the Sun, Saturn, Pluto and an unusual point called Quaoar (associated with family patterns and personal creation myths) in your birth sign. You might say this represents the formation of a brand new you, with a whole new mission. At this point of commencement, some basic information will help. First, your mission is to be accountable to yourself.
Saturn’s return to your birth sign describes a sense of completeness you have not felt for a very long time, if ever. Take a moment to collect yourself: a week or two of reflecting on your goals and preparing your mind; and get ready to face the challenges you’ve been avoiding. You now have the perspective and the strength to step up to your life as a full participant.
Most of this week’s astrology is focused on your sign, and there’s quite a bit. Three interesting points: Saturn leaves Sagittarius after nearly three years, Mercury stations direct, and there’s a New Moon conjunct the Galactic Center. All of these symbols describe renewal, release, and expansion. It’s as if you’re being set free to experience a taste of your future.
As we’ve all experienced, when you open a pressurized container, the gas or liquid inside rushes to come out. It’s an apt metaphor for a decidedly common human trait: cause a person to feel trapped in some way, or forbidden to do a specific thing, and the desire to break the bonds becomes a powerful drive. Saturn finally leaving your sign Tuesday night is likely to feel like a momentous release.
The astrology in your sign isn’t just the magic teacup ride. It’s not the double-loop roller coaster. It’s not the fun house or the tunnel of love. It’s the whole darned amusement park, in all sincerity, outstripping anything I’ve ever seen (and Sagittarius, for whatever reason, always puts on a fantastic show). However, two elements stand out.
