Now that we’re safely inside of 2021, I hope more of us are feeling optimistic. There’s no need for nail-biting since this month’s planets are much more tame than last. December’s total solar eclipse in Sagittarius, Grand Conjunction of Saturn and Jupiter in Aquarius, and full moon in Cancer (at the tail end of the month) wore us out! January brings a new moon in Capricorn on the 13th as well as a Mercury Retrograde in Aquarius beginning on the 30th and ending on February 20th. As I’ve said before, back up your electronic devices, steer clear of signing contracts if possible, and double-check emails before you send them out. Retrograde is always a period of review, not action.
Late December ushered us into the sign of Capricorn, an earth sign symbolized by the stern goat with horns. Capricorn is ruled by Saturn and enjoys rules and regulations more than a school crossing guard does. While that may seem a bit boring to some, Capricorns don’t mind climbing that long ladder to the top. In fact, their steadfast determination will surely get them there. These ambitious individuals have no problem achieving their goals because they work steadily towards them. On the negative side, their practicality and laser focus can sometimes read to friends and loved ones as coldness. They can also be excessively stubborn. But if you’re going to let anyone manage your money, let it be a Capricorn. They have a knack for balancing budgets, investing in stocks, and all things having to do with stacking that cheddar.
