Welcome to 2021!
Thank you. THANK YOU.
Of all the zodiac signs, you bore the brunt of 2020's heavy demands and (ahem!) subdued energies.
You've been under a personal raincloud for so very long that you may not realize how much light is available and how much darkness has finally left your world.
Let's take a moment to remember just how much you accomplished - the mountains you moved.
Ever since 2008, when Pluto stole into your zodiac sign in the dark of night, you've been under a heavy program of personal renewal. Pluto, tiny yet mighty, put you on the fast track toward destroying everything that no longer serves you (or whose time simply had come) to create a level field from which you could build a new foundation - and a very new you.
In 2018, your ruling planet, Saturn, joined the action. You couldn't get away with ANYTHING. And you couldn't put off your assignments any longer. Time to get serious, get real (and practical), and just get on with it.
Then, at the end of 2019, (usually jolly) Jupiter blew into Capricorn, where his talent for supersizing everything he touches served to magnify hard work, possibly some gloom, and everything connected to your health, vitality, and personal improvement efforts. If you weren't at your best, Jupiter showed that clearly and demanded that you fix your thinking and beliefs to fix your wellness so you could finish what you simply HAD to do.
Combine all that with eclipses that hit you personally in Capricorn (and affected your spouse from across the way in Cancer), and you faced an uphill time of it.
It's been a long, arduous road, and you had to go slowly and take it one step at a time.
But you did it, Capricorn! I'm so impressed with your fortitude and dedication.
No matter how tired you feel, please take a moment now to feel proud of yourself. Go to a mirror and take a bow, for I'm applauding you. (And so are many others, even if you're not aware of it.)
When any of us step up and "do" anything associated with Saturn or Capricorn, we earn a reward. It doesn't come until all the shouting is done and the heat of the battle subsides, but it does come.
YOUR reward? You've been tested and found worthy. You now wear the face of leadership, authority, and gravitas. You're an elder in the tribe (whatever your chronological age), and you're aligned to integrity and the greater good. Others know they can depend on you to come through, no matter what. And with Pluto still in your sign (through 2024), that gives you POWER.
How will you use your power and hard won status?
Most likely on the job or via your public role and influence. (Of course! Your sign is so strongly associated with career and recognition!)
At the end of 2020, your planet, Saturn, finally freed you by moving into Aquarius. His "I'm in charge of society!" pal Jupiter joined him days later. With their grand conjunction on the December 21, 2020, Solstice, they signaled the start of the new Age Of Aquarius. For REAL.
SO exciting! Especially for you because of Saturn's role in seeing to it that humanity builds a new foundation for a just, altruistic, idealistic culture that brings everybody into the loving circle of belonging.
Sounds like a tall order? Yep - just the thing for an ambitious Capricorn like yourself.
Your part in all this will play out - for the rest of this lifetime - in Aquarius, which oversees your second house. That's the place where you earn money from a regular paycheck, go shopping, and create a budget. It's also where you reckon with things of value (fine art, the family jewels, antiques) and your values (as in what's dear to you).
It it love? Or money? Nope, not really. (Despite how career focused you are.) It's friendship. Selfless help for others. Standing up to authority so you can express your hopes, dreams, and wishes - and make them come true. Mentoring the next generation…so THEY can manifest their hopes, dreams, and wishes.
You'll have excellent support this year to get started on your Age Of Aquarius cosmic mission.
All three Mercury retrogrades will happen in air signs, which happen to be the ones governing your money and work zones (second, sixth, and tenth houses). These retrogrades will uplift your thoughts and redirect your professional potential toward idealism so you can invent a way to change the world through the work you do in the world.
Isn't that fantastic?
The universe had this special Aquarian style job opening, and you are PERFECT for it!
The first Mercury retrograde will start January 30, so get ready for three weeks of mulling over your new cosmic assignment and re-evaluating your work life to pinpoint areas that have to come into alignment with the new you and your huge new job.
Also, get your calendar and mark these dates NOW so you're primed to use their potential to leverage all you bring to your Age Of Aquarius mission:
You're one of the stars of this new Aquarius show! I'm looking forward to what you're going to do, and I know it's going to make all the difference in creating the very best version of an Age Of Aquarius we can muster as a species.
Thank you, and happy 2021!
