October 4, 2015
The Moon transits Cancer all day, and the Last Quarter
Moon is exact today at 5:06 PM EDT, when the Sun in Libra forms a square with
the Moon. A Last Quarter Moon phase points to some sort of crisis of
consciousness. After basking in the awareness symbolized by the full light of
the Moon at the time of last week's Full Moon, we disperse our knowledge and
come to a point when we need to sort out what works for us--and what doesn't--in
preparation for next week's New Moon, when something new is born once again.
This is not the best time to start a major project, as the decreasing light of
the Moon symbolizes a descent into unconsciousness. It's time to begin finishing
up the details of that which was conceived at the last New Moon. The Cancer Moon
holds much healing potential. Our feelings run deep, making it an ideal time to
get in touch with what motivates us.
Life is really picking up pace for you this month, dear Capricorn, in a most enjoyable way. You seem to be balancing work and play well right now, with opportunities emerging on both personal and professional levels. There is good energy for applying your knowledge and skillset in practical ways and to good feedback, particularly from the 9th forward. For some of you, your ideas are reaching a larger audience and gaining recognition, or publishing, learning, and teaching are in strong focus. Combining business and travel can be rewarding for some. You might be enjoying an exciting new project or a revival of one already in progress. Personal magnetism is strong and is only set to increase. You'll find that moving outside of your normal bounds and routines improves your opportunities. There can be great hunger for new experiences and knowledge that feed your mind and spirit. Many of you could be feeling that you bounce back much more easily from minor stresses and problems. Teaching or guiding can be in strong or stronger focus in the work you do. Opportunities for travel, friendship, learning, and love can emerge. Jupiter connects with Pluto in your sign, and this can stimulate a real sense of meaning and purpose. There may be some issues with instability on the home front to deal with three weeks in, but you're in a good position to manage problem areas.
Mercury's forward motion on the 9th and the New Moon on the 12th both can help
to boost career efforts and reputation. There can be a sense that you can start
anew. The Full Moon on the 27th is strong for love relationships, romance, and
creative pursuits. The lines of communication open.
In 2015, you're likely to do a lot of probing into your inner world, dear
Capricorn, with great rewards. There can be much interest and motivation to
explore life more deeply and richly, and a strong desire to merge and make deep
connections with others. Even so, there's also some room for a bit of adventure
and excitement this year. Some of you could be deeply involved in research,
writing, and study this year, and the process is enriching. You're not very
content with living life on the surface. While career is important in 2015, it's
not a major headline in your life, as you're likely to find more reward in inner
exploration and discovery. An intimate relationship may take up a lot of your
attention, and you'll find that it's on your mind much of the time. Particularly
from April to June, there can be financial improvement and opportunity, although
it would be wise to watch how much you take on with regards to debt, as support
tends to be more available to you. There can be creative merging this year, and
this may relate to a business partnership. Some will benefit through a partner's
increased bottom line or a merging of resources.
The last week of January through to the end of February is strong for
starting fresh with money management. This is an important period for getting
yourself back on track with your finances. In March, you could be motivated to
ditch a current line of interest or study, or a project, and start fresh on a
new one. Alternatively, you might choose to do an overhaul and symbolically
start fresh. For some of you, this can be a writing project that is released or
reaches an important turning point later this year. After March, there is less
direct pressure on and from family. In fact, home life feels lighter and easier.
Living arrangements may be unusual and non-traditional now, but highly
successful. April through early May is one of the strongest periods of the year
for romance and fun/entertainment. There can also be very positive feedback for
a creative project at this time. For some, children are in strong focus and
bringing a lot of joy. This summer, you may be clearing up some outstanding
problems with friends or group connections. A friendship may very well end at
this time, but strong connections will endure. July is an animated month for
partnerships. Love is rocky but exciting. A partner may be acting out in unusual
ways or vying for attention. Venus' retrograde from July 25-September 6 is an
important period for reviewing recent developments and attachments. Finances can
benefit from a review process as well. For some, an old lover could resurface,
stirring up powerful feelings during this period.
You'll begin to feel impulses to seek out more life experiences, adventure,
and knowledge - things that truly feed you body, mind, and spirit - from
mid-August forward, but it's around the Solar Eclipse mid-September that you may
decide to really get going on this. There will be times when self-restrictions
hold you back during this cycle that stays with you until September 2016, and
periods when instability on the home front tie you down, but all in all, this is
an influence that builds your confidence and gives you the right attitude to
take life's problems in stride. New knowledge and connections can open you up to
different ways of looking at your life and the world that truly benefit you. You
can feel that you're growing, and you're likely to thoroughly enjoy sharing your
ideas with others and possibly teaching as well. Some of you will publish your
work or ideas, reaching a larger audience. You may be writing about your
personal past, restrictions, and trials, in ways that help others. There can be resolution
to long-standing problems, possibly a positive legal outcome, discoveries of
personal strengths and talents, or a new and exciting project. The last week of
October can bring exhilarating opportunities for love, travel, and learning. The
second half of the year is stronger, in general, for friendships and networking.
Pressures you've been feeling in your social life tend to dissipate and
inhibitions are released, allowing you to enjoy yourself more. Even so, there
can be a retiring or withdrawn and private element to your personality now with
your ruler, Saturn, spending much of the year in your solar twelfth house. There
can be a lot of work done behind the scenes and less daily contact with others.
Some of you could be connecting with studies and interests of a more spiritual
nature in 2015 and beyond. This is all very important work, but be sure to
reassure important people in your life that you're still very much a part of
Until August 11th, Jupiter transits your intimacy sector, which can help
boost the intimacy level of a relationship, or even with yourself, as you learn
to open up and discover new ways to express your desires. This is a time for
embracing your desires and needs. It's
a time of learning about a partner, about yourself, and about the myriad ways of
expressing your affection.
The summer of 2015 can be up and down for partnerships, but the bigger theme
revolves around sorting out friendships. In August especially, you may be on the
fence about an intimate relationship, uncertain of your feelings or a partner's
From August 11th, 2015, to September 9, 2016, Jupiter transits in harmony
with your sign. While this is not a transit that directly affects relationship
houses, it's a good time for enjoying yourself and for managing the usual
stresses of life better.
From October 2015 to June 2016, this Jupiter transit gets a nice boost and
impacts you even more deeply. Jupiter forms a healthy aspect with Pluto, which
is transiting your sign for the long term, and this encourages you to express
and enjoy the more positive aspects of the sometimes complicated Pluto transit!
Speaking of the Pluto transit, this year it affects those born January 4-7
most directly (this also applies to people with a Capricorn Ascendant of 14 to
17 degrees). Pluto is the planet of
transformation and stimulates deep personal changes. Loved ones will need to be
patient as you get in touch with your deeper needs, and perhaps your "dark" side
as well. You are learning about trust, faith, fear, and courage--really big
issues. Some of you are being tested, so to speak, and might be dealing with
betrayals or other intense experiences that get you more deeply in touch with
yourself and your needs. You are learning this year to get more control over
your life, and it is not without its challenges. As your energy fluctuates and
you go through many personal ups and downs, partners need to be patient and
understanding with you.
With Jupiter helping out Pluto for most of this period, you're in a better
position to embrace your deeper needs and wants, to understand and acknowledge
your passions, and to find ways to channel this important energy. Discovering
what makes you tick is part of this. Using it to make positive changes in your
life is vital now.
A big theme during this period of your life involves deeper introspection, and
it will be important for people in your life to give you the leeway to explore...more
