There is strength in numbers once again, as communicator Mercury effectively ends a three-week retrograde this Tuesday. It hasnt been all roses on Team Capricorn, especially since November 14, when retrograde Mercury slid back into Scorpio and your house of collaborative efforts. Youve likely weathered some infighting since then, or maybe witnessed a perfectly cohesive unit of peeps start to unravel at the seams. Before you dismantle the group of bail for greener pastures, take the reins on peacemaking efforts. You might call a summit (with clear ground rules, like one person holds the talking stick at a time and no personal jabs allowed) giving everyone a chance to air feelings and chime in about solutions. All is not lost here, Cap, and theres a good chance youll all be back in sync like a finely tuned machine before the week is through. That said, Mercurys direct turn signals the need to recruit some fresh blood. Holiday parties will double as networking events for the next couple weeks, so keep the little black dress at the front of your closet. Go easy on the brandied eggnog and socialize with the added purpose of scouting out prospective collaborators. With Mercury powering forward, a stalled online venture could take flight again. If you have a website, blog post, or other techie project thats ready to share with the world, its safe to hit the launch button after Tuesday. Still in the development process? Do a little crowdsourcing and let the general public (or at least your Twitter followers) give you their candid feedback by sharing a link or tossing out an idea for critique. Youre strong enough to take whatever comes back at you. Even if the reviews arent all glowing, consider this a golden opportunity to sharpen your angle and perfect your next pitch. Plus, youve probably just saved yourself a pile of money with this focus group. On Thursday, tape this note to your forehead: the only thing constant is change. Your carefully crafted Capricorn routines could get a mighty shakeup by the lunar (full moon) eclipse in Gemini. You may be forced to think on your feet, scrambling for a solution for a situation you thought you had locked down. As irritating as this process may be, its an incredible opportunity for you to mine the reserves of your own slumbering creativity. What you dream up in the last minute will be pure genius. Have faith in your ability to improvise! If youve been slacking on self-care, this eclipse could bring a wakeup call, and even a bout of unexpected anxiety. Man cannot subsist on espresso alone. Overindulging in coffee or sugary foods could leave you shaken or skittish under this lunar spell. You may realize that youve pushed yourself past your natural limits with work and other commitments. Scale back and simplify, STAT! The two weeks following the eclipse would best be used for streamlining your schedule, restocking your fridge with healthy, warm food ingredients (think stews and soups), and getting back into a regular groove with your fitness routine. On the flip side, this eclipse could also herald a best shape of my life moment for some Caps, especially those of you who have been working hard in the gym or yoga studio since the corresponding solar (new moon) eclipse in Gemini this past May 20. The same holds true for work: if youve been busting ass to prove your mettle since May, stellar results may come, courtesy of the eclipse. Hello, holiday bonus, promotion, or offer of a dream job!
