It’s a frustrating start to the week for some as Mars squares Saturn on Monday. Mars = action and energy; Saturn = blocks and limitations. As a friend said on Facebook recently, this is the planetary equivalent of “driving a fast car into a brick wall” and is not advised to do so.
In a nutshell this combination suggests that force of will can’t overcome everything and if you face any obstacles in your life, it’s wise to slow down, take a step back, and think outside of the box. You achieve more by using brains not brawn with this combination.
Capricorn is the sign of the moment and a constructive and orderly approach to life produces results. You gain the most when you focus on the long-term future so start by taking small steps towards your big goals for 2013.
Venus, planet of relating, enters Capricorn on Wednesday and all relationships benefit when you work at them. Favour reliability over excitement, loyalty over spontaneity. Capricorn words are patience, persistence and contentment.
Capricorn is one of the earth signs so being grounded produces results. You can achieve this through meditation, walking the dog, gardening or any other activity where being still allows insights to emerge naturally. This ties in with the dark side of the Moon, the quiet time before a new chapter begins.
Life shifts on Friday when the New Moon in Capricorn signals the beginning of a lunar month and is an excellent date to start over or to launch any new project. It’s a fresh surge of energy.
Don’t forget to make a wish when you first see the crescent moon in the sky over the weekend. The beginning of any new year is perfect to dream and envision what you want for yourself and your loved ones in the year ahead. The planets in earthy Capricorn help you take a practical approach to turn those dreams into reality.
