Retrograde & Capricorn Season
We spent most of our December in the all glorious Mercury retrograde. Man if that isn't a detox for the new year I don't know what else could be. While this retrograde brought on usual tendencies it was also an extra special cycle, sparking the mood of "fu<k IT". We were pulled to purge our old ways of thinking and being and encouraged to move forward in our future with decision and direction. Boy what a time to have a retrograde, holiday shopping, traffic, visiting family and friends. All while letting go of the things that no longer need to be in our lives. *mixed in with technology issues, communication problems, and a whole lot of emotional release.
We left retrograde and headed full on into Capricorn season, and I mean full on! Not only are we in the season of Capricorn but; Mercury is going into Capricorn on the 10th, Venus is currently in Capricorn until the 17th, Saturn is currently in Capricorn, and Pluto is in Capricorn. We also will be having a New Moon in Capricorn on the 16th, all the Capi energy! This is a great time to gain clarity on your new ideas and move forward with ease and confidence.
Capricorns are great at delegation, ambition, and are natural born leaders. They are the father sign of the zodiac and take that role very seriously. Powerful and persistent, but yet extremely caring. We can pull on this Capricorn Goat energy to help bust through blocks and obstacles. Capricorns are powerful individuals but also have a hard time relaxing and letting go. They may need to feel busy all the time to avoid their internal chatter as well as their feelings. So don't be surprised if you find some internal conflict going on durning this period. Leaving retrograde and diving into Capricorn might cause ambition but with insecurities. Remember you've got this,
Holidays & Road Tripping
The holidays were filled with the usual madness and drama, but also filled with lots of love and plenty to be grateful for. This trip was more than visiting friends and family it was also a way for me to let go of so much that I was holding on to. And I was able to use the time spent in the car (holy hell Kansas), to reflect on everything that I encountered. Retrograde had me letting go of a whole lot and Capricorn season has me ready to take on a whole new world. I feel as if the excuses I was giving myself the past few years are no longer valid. I now see that in order for me to move forward and to achieve my dreams I have to do this even when I am afraid. The more and more you think about how far you've come, and see the sides of you that have overcome struggle you will suddenly realize you can take on anything.
Staying Magical through it all
Remember staying and being magical doesn't mean that you can wish things to be different. It means you have faith in yourself and the universe while also being brave enough to do the work. You have to be willing to see the opportunity in the struggles and using that to your advantage. Honing in on your power and focusing it towards your goals. Keeping in mind the whole time that you are being lead to your destiny, so be open to the mystery and unknown.
