Mercury, Uranus and Corruption
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Putting people on pedestals is bad for everyone. For starters, at some point, the elevated person is going to have to come down, whether by fall from grace, gradual decline or purposeful humility.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You'll be asked to weigh in, though it might not be smartest thing to do. Try asking this magic question instead: What do you think you should do?
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Though it seems that everything has a price, in today's case it's an emotional price that will matter more than a dollar amount. It's not about the money; it's about what the money means .
TODAY'S BIRTHDAY (Jan. 27). People can relax and be themselves around you, and that's why you have so many friends and fun times over the course of this solar return. You'll attract a like-minded partner next month, and by April you'll have a whole team. Making money will be your specialty, starting with a training in May. Virgo and Sagittarius adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 5, 30, 44, 2 and 18.
ASTROLOGICAL QUESTION: "I've been overworked for decades. I feel like life keeps beating on me. I can't get ahead financially. I have family. People are depending on me. I get almost no enjoyment from my position." -- Weary Capricorn
It's not the work you do that makes you weary; it's the work you don't do. Weariness is the sense that there's too much to get to and that even if you were to handle it, it would shortly come undone. Weariness is a matter of perspective that settles into your physicality like a virus, weakening you and making you a victim of life's process instead of a co-creator in it. But there is hope. Weariness is an attitude that becomes a sickness, not the other way around. And an attitude can be changed.
Are you willing to be playful and experimental in your approach to changing your attitude? One way to combat weariness is to change the scale of your goals -- make the game much smaller. Pretend you're in a box with only a few achievable goals you can easily reach. Do what's there, and then move to the next box. Your focus on the work (and not the overwhelming work beyond the work) will help make you a winner in your own eyes, which are the eyes that matter most in this journey.
