December 21st ushers in Capricorn season, the Sea Goat, and Tarot Card Key 15, The Devil.
Check out these astrological highlights during Capricorn season:
12/23 New Moon in Capricorn - This is a good time to set intentions around establishing long term goals, areas in your life that require a methodical approach to solve the problem, organizing and streamlining, establishing and enforcing boundaries and guidelines, and taking care of family and personal business loose ends.

1/2/2023 Venus in Aquarius - This is a time where intellectual prowess is at the forefront, smart is sexy. When it comes to our relationships, we want breathing room, freedom and yet the ability to use our open mindedness to formulate common goals for the future. A friend may suddenly be seen with whole new eyes, but this is not about emotional attachments, it’s about what’s intellectually stimulating and exciting. Abstract or unique art and styling may suddenly become more appealing; maybe buy a new piece of art, make one or do something dramatic with your appearance that's outside of the box.
1/6 Full Moon in Pisces - This is a good time to reflect on where you may have allowed things to slip through your fingers or fail to manifest as a product of wishful thinking or not taking action; how nostalgia can cloud the mind and judgment; where there is a need for deep spiritual and emotional healing; and the way in which you relate to others. Watch for psychic and intuitive hits, and attend spiritual based gatherings with like minded people.
1/12 Mars goes Direct
1/18 Mercury goes Direct
Here’s a look ahead at what Capricorn season will bring or how each zodiac sign can work with the energy this season. To get a more well rounded picture, look at your Sun, Moon and Rising zodiacal signs.
Aries - Page of Swords - Hello new ideas, an untamed sense of curiosity, and different ways of analyzing your world. The ideas will be coming in swift, make sure to have a pen and paper handy, and don’t be surprised if you change the way you think about something swiftly and often. You may have an important message come in this month. Learn all the things.
Taurus - Ten of Swords - This month may leave you feeling rather defeated and ready to throw in the towel. You may find yourself faced with having been betrayed or backstabbed by someone you trust, including undermining yourself. A deep psychological loss, crisis or battle that leaves you mentally battered, bruised, and weighed down. This can also signal the ending of a previous situation of this nature. So however it comes to you this month, know that the end is not only near, but there is the promise of the dawn of a new day just on the horizon.
Gemini - Page of Wands - This month brings a whole new journey, where inspiration and limitless potential become the driving force. This is often the card of stepping onto your life path purpose, to truly step into alignment with Divine will and venture off into the sunset. If you have something burning in your soul, a passion that drives you, and have been waiting for the right time or a sign, this is it. Get it.
Cancer - The Fool - Don’t think too hard, just do and let Spirit and your gut be your guiding force to propel you in the direction you are intended to take. Sometimes the best plan is to not have a plan, to go merely by instinct. HOWEVER, you will have to step out of your current element to prevent fear and anxiety from past experiences from holding you back and taking chances.
Leo - Knight of Cups reversed - This month is about checking your emotions, filling your own cup, self-love and self-care, and being your own Knight in Shining Armor. Evaluate what you feel and how you are expressing it, watch for instability and being crabby! Make sure that you are taking care of your own needs before you try to take care of others; no one drinks if the well is dry. You may also find yourself no longer interested in or moving towards something you once had high hopes for.
Virgo - Eight of Pentacles - Now is the time to focus on your work, the rest of the world will have to wait as you have important work to do. This isn’t about just getting the job done, it’s about honing your skill and perfecting your craft. Practice doesn’t make perfect, perfect practice makes perfect; so if you’re going to do something, do it to the best of your ability.
Libra - Three of Swords - Your heart will be tender, please make sure to give yourself grace during this time and to not lose hope. Know that everything, good and bad, is not permanent so it is imperative that you view this emotional turmoil through the lens of knowing healing will come. Be mindful not to beat yourself up or let things unjustly weigh on you.
Scorpio - Six of Cups reversed - During this time you find yourself releasing something or someone from your past; perhaps you have outgrown this thing, or see it with a new set of eyes, specifically those without rose colored glasses. This could also be a time where there is a breakdown in a parent-child relationship or you are put in a position where you have to face an unresolved issue between the two. Creativity, feeling generous or being of service towards others may take a nosedive, so be mindful if it’s a necessity.
Sagittarius - Four of Swords reversed- This season it’s time to turn thoughts and words into action. You’ve had ample time to meditate and contemplate on the situation or circumstance, and now it’s time to take action. Some people go their entire lives holding their tongue and never really speaking their truth, some have fanciful ideas they never act on, don’t be one of those people. If you haven’t sought wise counsel, this is a good time.
Capricorn - The Star - look to the stars, for all things are possible. Strip away the doubt, fear, despair, wounds and hurt, this is a time of profound healing, rejuvenation, faith and hope. It’s time to lay yourself bare before Spirit, to tend to the body and soul, be ever mindful that we are co-creators in our lives, and seek answers far beyond the mundane through our five senses. Ask and you shall receive, trust and know that you are guided.
Aquarius - Five of Cups - This month brings about a situation or circumstance that brings about emotional turmoil often as a result of setbacks, real or perceived failure, unmet expectations, doubt, and grief. The 5s in tarot are representative of challenge, check out The Truth About Living a Spiritual Life & Tower Moments for how to better navigate this challenging energy as it comes to you this month.
Pisces - Strength - This season is about tapping into your inner strength, to either recognize or remember who you are and the immense power that resides within you. It’s easy to get so caught up in the hustle and bustle of the outside world and trying to dominate or tame it by force, that we forget that the true power is in our ability to break it down, analyze it and sway it subtly in our favor. Pay attention to the details and move mindfully rather than forcefully.
