Do you need a bit of focus and a sense of calm to get things done this week? Then the stars are here to give you what you need, just in time for the holidays!

We have only one major transit to discuss this week, and that is the beginning of grounded, responsible, focused Capricorn season on December 21st! The stars are happy where they are, leaving the Sun to dance into Capricorn and bring all of that motivating energy with it.

Capricorn is an Earth sign ruled by the element that provides stability, grounding, and the ability to remain down-to-Earth, as its name would suggest. Capricorn takes this sense of maturity and concentration even further with its ruling planet, Saturn – the planet of responsibility, discipline, and time.

It becomes easier to complete tasks during Capricorn season and stay on top of your to-do list. There is also an increased desire to achieve success, meaning that you’ll be able to take certain steps toward the career path that you truly desire.

You might even have to force yourself to slow down and take a break once in a while. However, one thing to remember is that it may feel more challenging to connect with others on an intimate or vulnerable level, especially as Venus – the planet of love and relationships – will be retrograde in the sign of Capricorn until January 29th, 2022.

During this time, it’s important to balance your Heart chakra and maintain connections through compassionate interaction and vulnerability.

What Can You Expect for the Week of December 20 - 26?

Find Direction, Make Plans, & Take Action

Capricorn season brings an enormous sense of concentration, motivation, and grounding, as well as rationality and logical thinking, that make this the best time of year to get reorganized and refocused.

Have you ever wondered why we’re so focused on resolutions around the New Year? It’s that Capricorn energy encouraging us to turn over a new leaf and get to work!

Reevaluate your goals, determine the steps you can take, and start enacting the plan. Maybe your previous goals no longer align with your current spirit, or perhaps there are new and interesting ways to push forward with your plans.

This week is the perfect time to evaluate and determine what you want so that Capricorn season energy can help you achieve it!

If you’re not sure where to start, a personalized astrological reading can help you determine where your focus should rest for now!
