High expectations motivate us to share our feelings today as the proud Leo Moon joins buoyant Jupiter and trines the radiant Sun. However, sensual excitement and intellectual adventure take a back seat to social etiquette and common sense until January 3 while romantic Venus remains in earthy Capricorn, the sign of the practical Mountain Goat. Although we are attracted to the idea of unrestrained freedom, we’re happiest now when we know the rules.

You’re ready to hit the accelerator and show the world what you can do now, but a more rational voice advises you to be responsible. Although you see new possibilities everywhere, consider the relationships you have already created before running off in search of something else. Even if the grass on the next hill appears greener, remember that unexplored territory often seems more colorful when viewed from a distance. Slowing down for a few weeks is a small price to pay for the potential of finding lasting satisfaction.

There’s no need to be greedy now; even modest gains in any of these areas can substantially enhance the quality of your life.

Beware of unnecessary detours when it comes to relationships, since you may have a few weeks of complications ahead. You naturally prefer splashing around in the surf, but are now left unsatisfied unless you consciously tread into deeper waters. The problem is that diving into serious emotions can make you uneasy. Even if you’re eager to explore your feelings, they might not easily give up the wisdom you seek. Don’t wait for a push from reality; get ahead of the curve now, while you can.

You might think romance should be like a walk in the park with charming Venus now strolling through your 7th House of Partnerships. However, it’s not sunshine and roses because the Goddess of Love demands more structure while within conservative Capricorn’s domain. This cosmic conflict creates a bit of a problem, since you may be offered the emotional security you want, along with too many restrictions. What price are you willing to pay for a relationship? Whether it seems like it or not, the decision is all yours.

It’s not that the party is completely over yet, but you might catch glimpses of a more serious future. Although all good things must come to an end, you can stretch the fun for a while with your attention to detail and commitment to work. But lighthearted play won’t come easily today unless you make time for something more practical. Paradoxically, you may not be fully satisfied now unless you have a particular goal in mind.

It’s not always easy to let someone get to close to you, but resourceful Venus now rides to your rescue as she travels through your 5th House of Love and Romance. This won’t remove every stop sign you’ve carefully erected around your heart, but it can help you to be more emotionally expressive. Let your feelings flow, even if some interactions seem too scripted for your own taste. A few sprinkles of spontaneity are sufficient to spice up the stew.
(Sep 23 – Oct 22)
You’re in for a round of self-criticism as you examine the reality of your feelings, your home and those structures that cannot easily be changed. Your emotions become subservient to the everyday responsibilities of your life. Fortunately, you can still be creative and have your share of fun. Nevertheless, you must make your life work within the restrictions that are currently being imposed. Paradoxically, accepting that which cannot be changed bring a new sense of freedom.
(Oct 23 – Nov 21)
Your professional trajectory may not be progressing as you wish. Fortunately, you’re quite willing to jump in and deal with the issues. One thing is for sure: denial will not get you anywhere now. Situations that have appeared impossible in the past begin to transform and evolve right in front of your eyes. Communication is the key to your success. Start slowly and proceed with unwavering determination if you want to move mountains.
(Nov 22 – Dec 21)
You may be somewhat unsure of your emotions today, even if you thought you knew how you felt yesterday. You normally lead with your heart, inspiring yourself and others with your passion. But, perhaps you now begin to realize that you created a relationship situation that seems to be growing too restrictive. Take responsibility for your feelings before making any moves you might regret.
(Dec 22 – Jan 19)
In your heart of hearts, you might not believe that money and love should come without a cost. You’re accustomed to working hard for what you receive and, luckily, your efforts will be rewarded. As sweet Venus moves through your sign for the next few weeks, you notice that it’s easier to get along with others. In fact, it’s even easier to get along with yourself. Your newly found optimism is the main theme of the month ahead. Spread joy wherever you go and enjoy others as they enjoy you.
(Jan 20 – Feb 18)
You’re more attracted to fantasy than to reality now that Venus is hiding out in your 12th House of Escapism. Nevertheless, your desires are quite real so put up whatever walls are necessary to function in your mundane world. Ultimately, your current tendency is to lock up your needs within the recesses of your subconscious while playing caretaker to someone you love. But avoid falling into the role of martyr. Push your heart into the open and build a stable foundation for your future.
(Feb 19 – Mar 20)
Even your most meaningful encounters now take on an air of casual friendship. Passions are subdued with Venus the Goddess of Love visiting emotionally conservative Capricorn. In fact, this is a wonderful time to schedule a variety of social engagements, but the current planetary signs don’t singularly emphasize romance. Whether you are a solo act or part of a duo, make time to enjoy the company of others while the cosmic energy is on your side.
