Capricorn your january guide
1st-8th: Plan of action. Now that the holidays are over, you will be excited and energized to create a plan of action you can follow, Capricorn. On the 4th, Mercury conjoins Pluto in your sign, followed by Venus entering that area on the 8th. Review activities you may have placed on the back burner last year, and consider moving some of them to the top of your “to do” list.
9th-16th: Closer together. Venus in your sign forms a trine to Mars in your solar 5th on the 9th, so make time for a romantic dinner or weekend getaway. If you are in a committed relationship, do something exciting and different to bring the two of you closer together. If you are unattached, this is a great time to discover a singles group that shares your intellectual and creative interests.
17th-23rd: Listen and learn. With the Sun entering your solar 2nd on the 19th, your income stream should be steady. Continue to save more and spend less, keeping an eye out for financial opportunities you may be hearing about from friends. As a practical and frugal person, you can easily distinguish between a get-rich-quick scheme, and a potentially profitable offer.
24th-31st: Informed decision. The Full Moon makes its presence known in your solar 8th on the 28th, followed by the Sun conjoining Jupiter in your solar 2nd on that day. Friends may continue to regale you with business plans that may sound tempting. If you find one that requires minimal investing, talk to a financial adviser, and make an informed decision.
