Although it's not easy to surprise you, today will prove the exception to that rule. There's at least one major surprise en route in the department of communications. Routine conversations and encounters won't be quite so routine right about now. That goes for any conversation, whether it's in person or via phone, email or snail mail. If you expect it to turn out one way, it could quite possibly end up in an entirely different direction. Ready or not, here it comes!
CapricornDec 22 – Jan 19
Get out your calendar and start making those vacation plans – this week is a great time to do all the research, fact-finding and bargain-hunting you'll need for a great trip. You'll get a lot of work off your plate early in the week, but by Thursday your empty inbox will once again be flooded. You may spin your wheels a bit, but by the end of the week, key decisions will get you more organized. You'll gain power at the office and prestige in the eyes of your friends.
A new moon in fellow earth sign Taurus on May 15 brings the energy level down a bit, but that doesn’t mean you can’t make the most of this downtime. You’re always looking for a way to work more quickly and efficiently, and some brilliant brainstorming helps you come up with useful tactics. Moneymaking ideas and investment strategies are particularly profitable right now, so follow your financial instincts.
Your home planet of Saturn isn’t a major player this month, but it does make some significant appearances. A Mercury-Saturn (retrograde) trine on the eighteenth brings communication up a notch, especially when it comes to catching small details like typos and math errors. Grammar and calculations come under scrutiny, and any mistakes you find and correct will be greatly appreciated.
There’s a Venus-Saturn opposition on May 26 that leads you to question whether you’re responsible for relationship difficulties, and there are no easy answers. Sometimes trying to make things better only makes things worse, and that leads to some major disappointments and regret. Finding a way to apologize and show you care might be the best you can do right now.
