DEC 22 - JAN 19

Fresh Adventures

Capricorn, the sun in down-to-earth Taurus until May 20 puts you in the mood to enjoy life and take time out to kick back and relax. It’s time to indulge in your favorite hobbies and other activities, take a romantic break, or simply get away from it all. You don’t need an excuse to have fun. Instead, just go all out to enjoy yourself.

The big news this month is the very active focus on your home zone, which could inspire new projects and activities. Creative Venus moves into Aries on May 2, which could coincide with a desire to create greater harmony in your domestic environment or redecorate in bold, beautiful colors.

Next, sassy Jupiter moves into Aries on the tenth, encouraging thoughts of expansion. Could it be that you need a bigger place to live? Are you thinking of starting or adding to your family? Big ideas are swirling in the ether, and you will be busy chasing them.

Dealmaker Mercury turns retrograde in your lifestyle sector on May 10, so expect some delays. Back up important files and documents on your computer and check that your antivirus software is up to date.

There might be quite a showdown in your social circles, because the lunar eclipse in Scorpio on the fifteenth could push you to end a toxic association. Doing so can leave you wiser and happier.

You’ll be eager to streamline your affairs when the sun moves into Gemini for a four-week stay on May 20. Use this time to consider your priorities and find a way to create balance. Make taking time out nonnegotiable and you’ll soon begin to flourish.

Are you ready to start new initiatives? The new moon in Gemini on the thirtieth is an excellent time to go ahead. Whether you want to kick-start a habit or begin a project, do it now.
