Your horoscope for January 11 to 17, 2018

    1 of 1 2 of 1

      Mercury has just entered Capricorn, making for a total of five planets tenanting the reality-check sign. Getting it under better control is the imperative. Don’t take it lightly; it is serious-business time. The spotlight is aimed at matters pertaining to authority, government, and its rule; the system and how it works or does not work; the past and its reward or consequence. Is it authentic? Is it legit? Who is accountable? Also featured are all matters to do with responsibility, duty, boundaries, limits, and limitations.

      As of Friday, Mercury and Saturn, Capricorn’s ruler, meet for the third time, completing a staging cycle that has been in the works/on the clock since the end of November. As a “written in stone or written on the wall” archetype, Mercury/Saturn marks both a significant finish-up threshold and the start of the next chapter or phase.

      Timing is everything. We have been on an extended time-is-ripe moment for the past week or so. If you haven’t got yourself moving yet, then know you have not lost your opportunity. Beyond a good weekend to call your own, both Venus and the sun are gaining momentum with Uranus. You can feel it as a spark, an inspiration, or something more.

      Monday, Jupiter/Pluto makes for a productive refuel. Get yourself organized. Aim to make good use of your time and resources. Tuesday’s new moon in Capricorn supports the build-it-better agenda. Wednesday adds something new into the mix and/or sparks a fresh opportunity, trend, or impetus. Wednesday evening, sign up for a class, mix business and social, or catch up with friends.

      March 20 - April 19

      Thursday/Friday are well timed for a talk, paperwork, important decision-making, a contract-signing, a professional or official undertaking, or a wrap-up. Reestablish the boundary; set a goal. Mercury/Saturn assists you to work through the tough stuff. Saturday/Sunday revitalizes your energy and interest level. Saturday through new-moon Tuesday transitions you onto a next step or project. It’s a natural progression.

      April 20 - May 20

      Thursday/Friday can deliver long-awaited news or results, bring you to an important time line, help you get a better lock on it, or make the reality too obvious to ignore. Set the record straight; finish it off or take it on. You’ll find an intuitive knack for tackling the practical side of things. Saturday/Sunday shifts your attention or perspective.

      May 21 - June 21

      Thursday/Friday can bring you to a finish line. Belt-tightening, downsizing, and streamlining are appropriate. To enhance success prospects, write your budget target and goals down on paper. On the other hand, don’t hesitate to borrow or make a substantial investment for your long-term benefit. A relationship or commitment is well timed (perhaps it’s overdue). Saturday/Sunday, a change of pace is refreshing.

      June 21 - July 22

      You could face tough opposition, resistance, or competition Thursday/Friday. Mercury/Saturn could bring an ending or produce a tough decision or difficult news. On the plus side, professional advice or recognition is well timed. It’s a productive transit to attend a business meeting or event or to deal with a contract matter. Professional advice and recognition are bankable commodities. Saturday onward plugs you into something fresh.

      July 22 - August 22

      Five planets in Capricorn give you no choice but to get to work. Effort is required but the results will prove worth the sweat equity. Stay focused; prioritize. One thing leads to another. Thursday through next Wednesday can end the hunt or wait, put you to work, deliver test results or news, and/or set you onto a fresh track.

      August 22 - September 23

      Where there is a will, there is a way. Thursday/Friday, ambition serves you well. Stay focused on the results you want to see and/or on what you feel you deserve. Five planets in Capricorn keep you on top of your game and timing it right. Take control; push harder if you have to. The weekend adds something fresh to the mix. Wednesday does too.

      September 22 - October 23

      Wanting to downsize, reduce your overhead, or clear your clutter? Looking to get home and family matters under better control? One way or another, five planets in Capricorn will put you to work. Start now; finish off projects. Remortgage, renovate, hire a real-estate agent, or list your property. The stars are not wasting any time and neither should you.

      October 23 - November 21

      Use Thursday/Friday to get it said, signed, bought, sold, or done while the stars set your timing, smarts, and talent to optimal. On the job, tending to personal projects, or taking a break in favour of pleasure and play, Saturday/Sunday expectations are well met. Monday begins another full-steam-ahead action week. Each day adds something new to the list.

      November 21 - December 21

      In the works since the end of November, a key circumstance, inner dilemma, or relationship matter has now run its course. Bringing you to a well-timed finish line as of Friday, Mercury/Saturn cements it for you in some significant way. Despite residual emotions, once you make up your mind, or it has been said and done, you’ll hit an immediate upswing.

      December 21 - January 19

      Your new reality begins! New phase sun/Venus/Pluto, new phase Mercury/Saturn, and Tuesday’s new moon in Capricorn are all in undeniable accord; you’ll feel it in your bones. While there is still an overlap between where you’ve been and where you are heading, that 50/50 threshold will soon be in the rear-view mirror. Destiny/your future is on the gain.

      January 20 - February 18

      What is meant to be will be. Potentials are now taking on more concrete shape and form. Mercury/Saturn takes the guesswork out of it for you and gives you something more substantial to go on. It’s a good weekend to socialize or call your own. Too, Saturday/Sunday can provide fresh insight or stimulus. Monday begins an upswing week.

      February 18 - March 20

      Thursday/Friday can see you reach a goal post, a milestone, or a finish line. Mercury/Saturn could deliver important news or a result, a contract end or renewal, or see you say goodbye to someone. One way or another, Saturday/Sunday keeps you well on the go. Monday/Tuesday, take charge, get organized, prioritize. Do the work; get it done.
