Reconsidering your options
The Sun arrived in Capricorn on Dec 21. Two days earlier, Mercury turned retrograde there. He'll backtrack over old ground until January 8. In plain English, the last half of December and almost all of January will bring a time of rethinking, refocus and new decisions about career directions, professional efforts ... and the whole question of "what do I want to do with my life in general" -- for everyone.
Recent changes in the world -- and in your world -- have muddied the waters in some areas, brought new clarity in others. (What one hand takes away, the other gives back equally -- and more. It's a metaphysical law.)
Your options hinge now on this question: "How do I best present myself, my views and ideas, my beliefs and my talents, to gain an audience of helpful allies ... and acquire the respect I know I deserve?" Your answers will decide your future course.
An unexpected discovery about the power of words, the power of information itself, will bring answers and shape your choices. Adopt the quiet voice of authority and assurance ... and stand your ground. This alone gives you stature and status. The rest will follow naturally. Because it must.
Finding new freedoms
A new spirit of freedom settles into your financial interests and partnerships. Insights arrive in bursts of intellectual brilliance. Problems seem to magically solve themselves. The value of your partners builds daily in transactions great and small.
Friendship and the common ground of mutual goals make your alliances substantial assets. Even working independently, you still pull together ... in the same direction, toward the same target.
Surprising sources of income and revenue, or revised budgeting that hands you more discretionary money could be another bonus. Stronger together is actually a solid truth. And you don't have to be joined at the hip to make that happen. Chalk it up to a change in values. That's where the credit belongs.
Just do it
Ideas, information, knowledge and communication are "where the action is" this month. There's a smooth link between making a decision and acting on it. Ideas are visionary, exciting, intuitive and full of imagination. They bring actions that are generous, compassionate, sensitive -- in line with your spiritual principles, and surprisingly selfless.
Usually, actions, of all life's features, have a clear component of self-interest. This month is a big exception. Maybe it's the holiday spirit. Maybe it's the tenuous doings in high places that prompt such charity. Maybe it's all those messages about sowing seeds of good Karma coming home finally. Whatever the cause ... let it happen!! You have everything to gain. Prove it to yourself.
