CAPRICORN (December 22–January 20)
With ruling planet Saturn just peeking into the beginning degrees of Aquarius this month there's hope of alleviating the heaviness of the interminable cluster bomb of planetary energy in Capricorn. The Jupiter-Pluto conjunction in your sign April 4 giganticises Capricorn's power to initiate creative manifestation. Pluto's retrograde beginning April 25, reminding you it's not over until the fat lady sings—and the final notes won't sound until mid-December with the Jupiter-Saturn conjunction in Aquarius. The explosive booms of Jupiter/Pluto, which repeat again in June and November, are the sounds of the battle of the barricades guarding the status quo.
