When it comes to astrological transits that are in play to fulfill wishes, manifest dreams, attract opportunities, and turn desires into reality, we are going through one right now. Consider this your Christmas miracle from the universe. This is the magic of Venus in Capricorn, arriving on Christmas Day, December 25.
The magic may not happen this day, but you’ve got four wonderful weeks to play with this gift. Today we are talking about how to capitalize on this magic, in both love and work. Here’s how to jump start 2018 and use the holiday gift of Venus in Capricorn to your fullest advantage.
What is Venus in Capricorn?
Venus is the love and money planet who’s as attractive and sizzling as she is stabilizing and luxurious. Venus loves her money and beautiful things, and she will do *almost* whatever it takes to get it. When Venus is in your corner, she’s trying to make sure you get those things too!
Capricorn is the stable and secure one of the zodiac signs. Ever the cardinal sign of the earth signs, Capricorn is your favorite CEO, police office, lawyer, investor, or the like. When you think of the structure and rules and safety nets those professions enjoy and provide, those are the themes that Capricorn manifests.
Venus in Capricorn is the planet of attraction attracting the highest levels of success for you. In love, or money! There is no better holiday gift than that. This transit is the literal translation of “thoughts become things” as stipulated by the Law of Attraction. What a wonderful transit to launch on Christmas Day, as you will get no better transit to launch your road map to success in 2018.
Are you excited yet? Now you want to know exactly how to do this in your own life, am I right? Well let’s make that list, you can check it twice, Venus is ready to reward those who are naughty AND nice! That’s just how she rolls.
Your Venus in Capricorn Success Checklist for 2018
It sounds exciting to be involved in a transit from astrology that manifests your deepest desires, but you can find yourself in some hot water if you wish for the wrong thing. Venus doesn’t “do” toxic relationships or self-serving work matters. Yes, she can be a little naughty, but she’s never on the dark side.
You want to stay in the light of Venus to attract those wonderful things you are hoping for. Trying to get something the sneaky or short way just isn’t going to work. Hoping for a big promotion? Make sure you know your commitments before you sacrifice your quality of life.
Longing for the next commitment in love? Make sure it′s the right person before you side track your life with love that isn′t good for you. Are you worried about making the wrong wish or making the wrong choice? Capricorn won′t let you do that, so long as you keep it real and get it done. Here′s how!
• You will get to be the boss in love for a change! Want more in your current relationship? Want out of your current relationship? Want more FROM your current partner? Ask for it the way you would ask for respect in work, like cardinal sign Capricorn, and it will happen. You′re in the driver′s seat!
• Boundaries with key partnerships will be stretched, bent, and pushed to their limits. The best way to get what you want from partners, in business or in love, is to not act so desperate. Engage with partners with an air of openness, availability, and transparency, but without an air of desperation. Now THAT′S sexy! Single white female equals “NOT sexy.”
• Relationships will be more serious now, whether you want that or not. Earth signs don’t mess around – they play for keeps. If you are the kind that prefers things casual, this will be an uncomfortable time for you. Just ride it out. Cherish the people in your life and respect them, or you will lose them to someone who takes them more seriously.
• Women going through this transit become more serious in love and business than ever before. The men around her will wonder what happened to her that made her so….bossy and confident, even a bit of an ice queen when it comes to playing by her rules. In any other transit this will turn men off. In this one? It is sexy sexy sexy.
Don′t be afraid to go after what you want, girls, this transit is all yours. Own it, and if he doesn’t rise to your standards, well then, Venus will find you someone who can.
• Become authentic and vulnerable. Have you been waiting for that time either in work or in love where you can let your guard down a little bit? This is the time. Open up that heart and just be real. It is time to ask for what you want, and be realistic about it. You will find this both uplifting and grounding at the same time.
This is a powerful chemistry to inject into any partnership, and with stable and secure Capricorn in play, this chemistry injects magic that is committed, and secure.
• Expect commitments to come out of the blue, whether you want them to or not! This will be especially true for those that have been laying down the groundwork for something real to manifest in their lives. Waiting for the next big step in love or work? Someone will approach you on this out of the blue! Remember, Venus is attractive, and attracts.
This is a very powerful period of the Law of Attraction for you. Use it!
• Put your best face forward every day because Venus in Capricorn is very polished, very serious, and…simply stunning. This is a simple and understated style that packs a big punch. You will be able to turn heads by putting just a few extra minutes into your grooming routine every morning, and accomplish more goals as well!
Adding lip gloss or a new tie to work one day could lead to a career-making moment. Don’t believe it? Try it, then try the yoga pants and sneakers look, then report back. Let us know how you were treated by other humans in life, strangers that you don’t know, when you put your best self forward, versus your yoga pants self.
Hey, I’m not knocking yoga pants. Love ‘em, but not many people win Academy Awards wearing them, get my drift? When it’s time to get down to business, Venus gets her bling on and so should you in your own special way.
• This is not a period about quickly making the first move. This is because Venus in Capricorn will not make bold moves until she knows for sure she will be successful. Patience will be your Venus virtue during this aspect. Capricorn is calculated and strategic. You’ll know when to make that boss move, whether that is in work or love.
• Boundaries and self control will be highlighted. Think about how you perform in business and work. You are professional, serious, and take your responsibilities seriously most of the time, right? That′s because that is the mentality that will reap rewards in work. The same mindset applies to love when Venus is in Capricorn.
Serious, responsible, self controlled, all of these professional mindsets will reap the miracles hiding behind your innermost desires.
• Sensuality versus sexuality, tactile passions rather than social passions, demonstrating romantic actions versus verbally expressive experiences are all ways to manifest the power of Venus in Capricorn.
There you have it friends! Know of course that this list is not all encompassing, there is so much more to this exciting transit in astrology than meets the eye. You can use this list to help you navigate your daily life in both love and work.
Stay tuned here and with our daily horoscopes and weekly horoscopes to find out more about Venus in Capricorn through the zodiac signs and how to make wishes come true in your own life! Until then, tell us more about what wishes YOU want to come true during this period, and I will tell you how to do it! How can we help?

Have you been considering getting a Tarot reading done? Or maybe you are a seasoned Tarot reader, interested in becoming more “in tune” with your Tarot deck?
If you have been on the fence about Tarot readings, getting your own cards, or having a reading done, one thing you really want to think about are the many benefits to the Tarot. Whether you are getting a reading or getting cards for yourself, there are enough benefits to Tarot that will have you thinking about including them in your life too.
Even if you just pull one card a day, you will see how it’s guiding light will benefit you and those around you.
Learning more about Tarot does not necessarily mean there is a conflict with your current belief system. No matter whether your cards are upright or reversed, the Tarot will act as one more tool in your toolbox and complements any belief system you may already have.
5 Benefits of Tarot Readings
Unlike any other system, the Tarot gives you immediate answers. And that’s just one of the many benefits of the Tarot that not many people really appreciate until they start using it. Let’s dive into five more!
1. The Tarot Tells You the Truth
The Tarot never lies!
If you really want the absolute truth about any situation, you can usually get it in as quickly as one card draw. For one card draws, it’s a little bit better to ask “yes” or “no” questions.
For more complex answers, you want to do a more detailed spread or reading to find all of the factors related to your question. Additionally, it can help you find your own truth by showing you what you don’t want. Say you want to know whether you should quit your job, if you ask the tarot and it says ‘yes’ but you feel this isn’t right, you’ve found your answer. The Tarot works in mysterious ways!
So if you are looking for an immediate answer to a burning question that will be the absolute truth, there is no quicker or more accurate way to get that than the Tarot. Period!

2. The Tarot Reveals Key Issues
Whether you are getting information about something going on in someone else’s life, or something going on in your own life, the Tarot always has room for a card in every spread called “Environmental or External Influences.”
These are forces happening within your situation that you don’t know about, so it is really and truly kind of like having a crystal ball on the situation you are consulting the Tarot over. You get to see everything. Say you are asking the Tarot “When will he propose?” and in the “Environmental or External Influences” you see a work card show up, then your answer is going to be related to his work situation. Maybe he needs a promotion, maybe his boss needs to give him a raise, whatever that detail is that has nothing to do with you, will be found in the Environmental Influences position.
This is an awesome position to have in every reading because when problems occur in our lives we often think we are the cause. This benefit to the Tarot will often help you realize that this situation has to do with external influences that are actually beyond your control. And, even if that answer isn’t the answer you wanted, at least you leave those readings with some peace and less stress because now you know it’s not you that is holding him back from proposing. This brings us to our next benefit!
3. It Relieves Stress
This is one of the greatest benefits to the Tarot! Tarot is a great tool for removing the stress of decision making or not knowing, when we do a tarot reading about a specific situation we start to see ourselves become more certain in our surroundings.
You can ask if you’re on the right path, what you need to focus on, and more. All of this can recenter you and allow yourself to breathe a bit more. Often people will use Tarot as part of their wind down time before bed, meditation, or even morning ritual – it helps set a balance within our days.
We get so wrapped up in our own Ego, and there’s nothing wrong with that by the way it’s called being human, we often create problems that are never there. The Tarot helps you weed out what is going on, from what is not, and that is such a tremendous stress relief in your daily life that you don’t want to live without.

4. It Validates Your Intuition
Just like the Tarot can tell you that you are way off on something, so too it can and it will tell you when your instinct is bang on. It will also even tell you how many degrees your instinct might be off! Ever have a big decision looming, and your gut was saying one thing but your brain a totally different thing? That’s the beauty of the Tarot. It weeds that out for you too. You can ask a simple one card question like, “Is my instinct right about this one?” and you will get an immediate yes or no answer, especially when it comes to love and romance.
We always say, follow your heart, which is also your instinct, and follow your gut because it will never lie. Guess what the Tarot does for you? It validates that.
So if you ever questioned your gut instinct, or questioned whether or not what you felt was right was right, you can always go to the Tarot to have those instincts validated, or not. And that is an incredible benefit to Tarot, because who doesn’t want to have that tool in their daily life? And, since you’ve now decided to start enjoying the benefits of Tarot that validate your hunches, this leads us to our next and final, and most exciting benefit of using the Tarot!

5. It Sharpens Your Instinct.
It is true that you can actually become more psychic, just by using the Tarot. Not only do you now have the advantage of seeing the answer right in front of you, but the secrets to using the Tarot wisely and well are to trust the first impressions that you get in your gut when you see the cards. It helps you prepare for big changes in your life.
We also can begin to see patterns and proper paths in front of us, allowing us to guide ourselves and others to abundance and happiness.
The cards are very specific and detailed and standing alone will give you a lot of information about your situation, but using them regularly will begin to show you when your instinct is bang on when it is not, and this then becomes something like a psychic skill.

Tarot Readings Will Change Your Life
How? Well, you have gut hunches and instincts about life in general, and go to the Tarot to learn whether or not those are validated. The true instincts in your life will be validated by the Tarot, and the thoughts that are not an instinct but that might be fear-based, will also be shown to you as well.
So, when you begin to see this on a regular basis, you actually begin to trust your instinct more, because the Tarot is teaching you what is, and what isn’t the truth. And what happens when you trust your instinct more? You get more information from the universe that allows you to use it more wisely.
In so doing, you become more in tune with the Universe and, with practice, Tarot will become a part of your life that you will never go without.

When any of the karma planets like Jupiter and Saturn are retrograde, it’s always a good time to review the laws of karma, and how to manifest karma in your own life. Karma is not just a belief or a lifestyle. It’s the oxygen that fuels life into one’s day to day living.
Are you breathing in, and breathing out, the right karma? Is your karma credit in good shape? Or does it need some work? Maybe you want someone else’s karma credit to come due to find peace? Hey. It happens. We are all waiting for that “what goes around to come” moment. It’s called being human.
The truth is, we all need a little work on our karma credit. And it’s always a good thing to keep your karma credit score in good shape. Once in a while, we’ll even have transits that bring with it extra luck to those whose “karma credit scores” are in good shape.
When “karma planets” go direct again, the rewards are there for the taking, no matter what your zodiac sign is. This is why it’s important to review the “laws of karma” and keep them handy for when retrograde transits arrive.
Whether you are waiting for karma to come around to somebody, or to yourself, here are the only five ways to manifest karma in your every day life.
5 Ways to Manifest Good Karma in Your Life
1. Be a Lover
We’re not just talking about romantic love. Love everyone and anyone you encounter all of the time. This is the Golden Rule of every spiritual and religious tenet on this planet, because it works. It is a simple concept that when used, will reward you with good karma.
That being said, this is, of course, difficult to practice some days. It can even be easier for some zodiac signs than others.
Sometimes Saturn just gets our gears going, and there’s nothing we can do about it. But Albert Einstein discovered this rule (and law of karma) through the scientific principle of relativity.For every action, there is a reaction. And that reaction is the product of the action.
If your actions and thoughts are constantly negative, and you are treating the people around you with some attitude, guess what your reactions are going to be? Being a lover is simple to say, but hard to do, but you can do it. Do unto others as you would have them do unto you.
2. Be a Creator
Don’t wait for life to just happen to you, because it won’t. Every New Moon we tell you to plant seeds. Are you? Every Full Moon we tell you to close chapters. Do you? You accomplish these things by being a creator in your life.
Create your destiny, and the rest will follow.
This means creating endings during Full Moons (and eclipses sometimes), and rolling with it. That means creating beginnings that terrify you, and rolling with it. When you show the Universe you know and believe you are the master of your own fate, you manifest good karma in your life.
Remember, for every action, you get a reaction. So are you creating super awesome actions? If so, then wait for the karma to come rollin’ in baby. In a good way!
3. Be Responsible
Owning your own “stuff” is a very difficult thing to do, but you need to take responsibility for your life, actions and choices if you want a “good karmic score.”
Nobody is perfect. We all mess up sometimes, and that is perfectly okay. What isn’t okay is pretending you are flawless, and have nothing to work on.
The true definition of karma is that you correct your own faults, and you can’t do that if you don’t own it. Or, as Dr. Phil says in Dr. Phil’s Life Laws, you can’t change what you won’t acknowledge. How can you do this? Simply by being honest with yourself.When you do, the road to healing and peace comes faster.
Your actions may have at one point created negative reactions that you did not intend. Own it, correct it, and love your way through it.
When you do this, you create karmic energy that reaps enormous rewards. The area of your life that you need the most miracles in, is the area of your life that you need to own it the most. What is your role in where things stand right now? You can change things. But not until you first own it, and answer that question honestly.

4. Be Patient—Baby Steps, Baby
Rome was not built in a day. If you want that kind of success, all zodiac signs need to take baby steps. But, you need to be taking these baby steps every single day. Are you doing something every day to reap fantastic karmic boomerang?
If so, you are a living example of the definition of karma. Keep doing that! And if you aren’t, start today.
Make it your mission to take one baby step, every day to own your destiny. This could be as simple as paying for the person in front of you in the Starbucks line.
This karma law is about connection. Karma depends on one thing connecting to another, one action creating a reaction. Build connections in your life, between your baby steps, every single day, and you will build your own Rome in time.
5. Just Be
When we want our karmic rewards, we expect them to happen right away. But one of the most fundamental laws of karma is that …that isn’t going to happen.
Patience is the key to all karma being paid forward, no matter what zodiac sign you are. Some zodiac signs, like the Fixed signs Scorpio,Taurus, Leo, and Aquarius are really good at just being and focusing on the moment. Other zodiac signs need some help with this. It takes practice (no matter what zodiac sign you are), and you can start experiencing the rewards of this patience today.
This is why Universe gives us cycles like New Moon cycles and Full Moon cycles. Plant seeds, and wait for them to grow. While you do wait, fill your life with awesome things, and relish in the principle of just…being. And that means, instead of being antsy because your karma hasn’t panned out yet, just…be.
Enjoy this moment. Enjoy this day. And enjoy this process. When you do, you send the message to the Universe that you love and accept the here and now, and are ready to see how the Universe responds or reacts. Sometimes doing nothing, and just being, is doing something.
How Will You Embrace Karma?
Whether you are waiting for your twin flame or a big promotion in your life, by practicing these five simple things you can create the destiny of your dreams. Are you waiting for a karmic boomerang to hit someone? Or are you hoping to reap some of your own?
Make sure to take time to reflect on your intentions, and always ensure that you are trying your best to throw positive energy into the Universe. You never know when this positive energy is going to come right back to you.

We’ve all heard the pickup line “what’s your sign?” Although this is a rather cliché way to get a date, there actually is merit in using the stars to find “the one” for you.
Did you know that astrological love compatibility is a real thing? Yes! There are certain zodiac signs that actually work together well, and some that don’t work together at all. There are even different ways to attract different zodiac signs when it comes to love.
So, how exactly might you attract a Capricorn? Or an Aries? We’ve got you covered.

How to Attract Your Soul Mate, Based on Their Zodiac Sign
As we mentioned, the way to go about attracting a Capricorn love interest and attracting an Aries love interest are really two completely different things.
What one zodiac sign loves and admires, the other may not appreciate at all. Let’s take a look at how the different signs look at love and companionship, and how to win over that someone special based on their zodiac sign.
How to Attract an Aries
Aries is a fiery and intense zodiac sign. If you plan to win over someone with this Sun sign, you better buckle up for a wild ride!
Don’t be timid when approaching an Aries for a date. Be confident when expressing your feelings for them, and layer on the compliments. When deciding where to go for a first date, you can’t go wrong with a sporting event. The constant action will keep them engaged and excited the entire time.
One thing to avoid is trying to dictate what Aries should or should not be doing. This won’t go over well, and you likely won’t get a second chance with them.
How to Attract a Taurus
When it comes to attracting a Taurus, you will have to be the one to make the first move. This zodiac sign tends to be slower when it comes to them making up their mind, and rather analytical when it comes to relationships. Thoughtfulness is something this sign appreciates, so if you are taking them out to dinner, make sure it is a top-notch, highly recommended restaurant with their favorite food.
Taurus is very concerned with comfort and security, and with that comes monetary security. If your date suspects that you are a poor money manager or that you don’t have a responsible head on your shoulders, they might be turned off.
Show that you genuinely enjoy their company as being aloof will drive them away. Make good, intelligent conversation, and you are sure to win over your Taurean love interest.
How to Attract a Gemini
Gemini is all about communication, philosophical thinking and great conversation. One of the most cerebral signs of the zodiac, you can quickly impress a Gemini mate with wit and wisdom. If you can come up with enough topic to discuss that they find interesting, you will have their attention all night!
If you find that your Gemini is flirtatious with others, don’t sweat it too much. Gemini is simply a social butterfly, and trying to clip their wings will not end well.

How to Attract a Cancer
Cancer is a rather vulnerable and sensitive sign. You must always be sincere when talking to your Cancer love interest, and do your best to be romantic. Walks along the beach, deep conversations about the future, and, of course, mentioning things you find attractive about them will win over this love interest.
Being crass or rude will get you nowhere when it comes to this union. Show your sensitive side! If this is something you’re not super comfortable with, a Cancer might not be the one for you.
How to Attract a Leo
Leo is another one of the more vivacious and fiery signs of the zodiac. To impress a Leo, you have to show that you enjoy things of quality. If you come across as being cheap, you won’t get too far with this Sun sign. When going out to dinner, spare no expense. Leo likes to travel in the first-class section.
A Leo just wants you to be yourself, so if they think you are being fake or disingenuous, they will not stick around for long.
How to Attract a Virgo
Virgo is reclusive and private by nature. When getting to know your Virgo, don’t be put off if they seem cold or uncaring at first. They simply have a bit of a harder shell that just needs to be cracked!
If you can respect that, they will respect you, and open up to you more quickly. Virgo is also extremely practical and down to earth, so trying to be flashy will turn them off quickly. They want you to be raw and real with them.

How to Attract a Libra
Libra is all about being social. They like to travel in big social circles, so if you can make nice with their friends, you can earn their trust and love quite quickly.
This zodiac sign is very intelligent by nature. If you show Libra that you appreciate this, and show that you also are intelligent about the things you are passionate about, you will easily win them over.
Intelligence equals respect here so study up before your next date!
How to Attract a Scorpio
Scorpio is a rather unpredictable zodiac sign, and also likes their privacy. When talking with a Scorpio love interest, you will need to listen intently to what they have to say. Faking it will not win you points here.
This sign also enjoys being in social situations, so don’t be afraid to surprise them with something fun and unique to do for a date night. Scorpio loves spontaneity, and the experience will mean far more to them than any gift ever could.
How to Attract a Sagittarius
Sagittarius loves the outdoors and talking about anything and everything that they find interesting. Strike up a conversation about current events, outdoor sports, or pets, and you will hold their attention for hours. You will know that you have a Sagittarius hooked when they said confiding in you, or asking you for advice.
What will turn a Sagittarius off faster than anything else is by infringing on their freedom or independence. This will have them running for the hills! If this is something that isn’t ideal for you in a partner, than a Sagittarius might not be the one for you.
That being said, you will always have fun and adventure with your Sagittarius lover, so live in the moment, just like they do.
How to Attract a Capricorn
Capricorn is a rather cautious sign of the zodiac, so earning their trust is a big part of their relationship compatibility. They love to listen and learn new things so if you have something new and interesting to discuss, or something amusing to add to the conversation, you will have them eating out of the palm of your hand.
Although this sign appreciates luxury, they are also very practical, and splurging on gifts to impress will only give the impression that you are financially irresponsible. This could set off red flags that you don’t respect the value of a dollar, which is a huge turn off for Capricorn.
One tip to be sure you take note of is always to be on time. Capricorn cannot stand tardiness and this will definitely start you off on the wrong foot!
How to Attract Aquarius
Aquarians are highly analytical, so it’s best to start off this relationship with some in-depth conversation. They also have many humanitarian interests, so showing your humanitarian side will surely grab their attention.
There are many, many things that Aquarians find to be fascinating. Don’t be surprised if the conversation jumps from one topic to the next, and make sure you can keep up.
One thing to avoid when dating an Aquarian is never to nag about their mistakes. Keep things lively and interesting and you will win over your Aquarian love interest.
How to Attract Pisces
When you consider your relationship with a Pisces partner, you need to be ready to discuss things of the mystical realm. Pisceans are known for their interest in the supernatural, spiritualism, astrology and things of this nature.
They make great listeners and are genuine in their replies.
Being very sentimental, Pisceans love things like birthdays and anniversaries so don’t miss any of those! They show a great appreciation for the arts as well, so a first date to an art exhibit will delight your Piscean date.

Were you born between September 19 and 25? Do you often feel torn between the horoscope section, vacillating between Virgo and Libra? You may be a Virgo/Libra cusp, a unique blend of the two signs with its own set of personality traits and aspects.
While being born on the cusp can make your journey into astrology feel more confusing initially, learning more about your cusped sign will help you learn even more about yourself! People born on the cusp of two signs may exhibit some of the personality traits of each sign, but this blend also creates a personality all its own.
When you’re born on the cusp of Virgo and Libra, you’re likely to gather strength from both the grounded Earth energy of Virgo, as well as the loving, social, Air nature of Libra. You may benefit from this balance, as the Virgo part of your being helps you stay focused on hard work, while Libra helps you dig deep into your center of creativity.
Learning about your Sun sign is enlightening and illuminating, particularly for those who may not have realized that their personality gathered energy from each sign surrounding their birthday!
Cusp signs are often overlooked because they are considered taboo by many astrologers. But, at Astrology Answers, we appreciate the unique charm of these signs.
So, if you want to know more about the Virgo/Libra cusp, keep reading to find out what makes this cusped sign so unique!
Virgo & Libra Personality Traits
Every zodiac sign under the Sun possesses its own individual personality traits, and to understand the Virgo/Libra cusp, it is useful to take a moment and explore each sign on its own.
The Virgo/Libra cusp gets a good portion of its traits from each sign.
Virgo Zodiac Sign Traits
Virgo Positive Traits
Virgo Negative Traits
Libra Zodiac Sign Traits
Libra Positive Traits
Libra Negative Traits
- Emotionally detached
As you can see, each sign has both positive and negative aspects – and some are shared by both signs, like intellect, creativity, and emotional detachment. You may not identify with each and every trait on this list, but pay attention to any that jump out at you.
One of the best parts of being a cusp sign is the blended personality they are fortunate enough to share with the world each and every day!
Make sure to catch up on: The Leo/Virgo Cusp: Fire & Earth Collide
The Virgo/Libra Cusp
Virgo is an Earth sign, ruled by the communicative planet Mercury. Earth encourages Virgo to be more grounded and focused on hard work, while Mercury stimulates the mind and guarantees that Virgo always has something to say.
On the other hand, Libra is an Air sign ruled by the social planet, Venus. The element of Air helps Libra tune into its intellectual, intelligent mind, while Venus encourages the social, flirtatious behavior that is often associated with this sign.
Mercury and Venus are in charge of different areas of life, but they flow well together and create an individual who enjoys time spent with others, someone who likes to express themselves creatively and share their thoughts and ideas with the world.
What do these signs share?
Both of these signs share the gift of creativity and a sharp, witty mind.
They’re more connected to their ideas than their feelings, which can make it difficult for a Virgo/Libra cusp to dig into and share their emotions. While both signs love deeply, they may have a harder time expressing it than a Fire or a Water sign.
When these two signs are joined in a beautiful union, you’re met with a smart, witty, social individual who deeply values their freedom – but when they make a commitment to someone, you can count on them to be loyal.
The Virgo/Libra Cusp Personality
Here we have a case of Earth meeting Air – of the carefree wind blowing atop the Earth’s crust and planting seeds. Virgo’s ability to get things done makes it easier for Libra to follow through on their creative ideas.
These are two signs that may need to work on their connection to the emotional realm, however, and when Virgo and Libra meet, you may experience a personality that loves deeply and values loyalty but isn’t quite sure how to say it aloud.
Creativity can help you begin to release your emotions in a safe manner that doesn’t make your feel vulnerable or frightened. You may wish to try new forms of art or creative expression to see what flow most naturally from your aura – this creative endeavor may even bring abundance into your life if you follow your heart.
You are loyal, but your individuality and freedom are extremely important to you, as both Virgo and Libra are independent signs. You need a partner who gives you space when you need it, allowing you to take a step back and spend time with your thoughts when you’re feeling overwhelmed.
Mercury gives you the ability to share your thoughts and ideas, while Venus is dripping with charm and social grace. You have might have the most fun when you’re around people you enjoy, especially when you’re able to engage in deep conversations.
Libras adore beauty and sometimes go overboard on luxury items or decorations, but Virgo’s earthiness tampers that desire for Libra to go wild with the credit card. Virgo also encourages hard work, resulting in disposable income that allows for your appreciation of fine art and delicious food.
Overall, this is a well-balanced cusp, especially if you can find a way to embrace your emotions and share them with the people you love and care for, rather than keeping them to yourself.
Be vulnerable with those your trust to build stronger, deeper bonds.
Dig that Dual Personality
It’s time to celebrate the blended personality that makes you so unique, that fills your spirit with celestial creativity and harmonious energy.
Both Virgos and Libras are talented superstars – think about the magic energy that Virgo Beyonce brings to the stage while picturing the star-quality that Libra Kate Winslet brings to the silver screen.

Are you ready for the upcoming solstice?
Both the Winter and Summer Solstice are always special times of the year.
In the Northern Hemisphere, we will be experiencing the Winter Solstice on December 21st, 2020, while in the Southern Hemisphere, we will experience our Summer Solstice.
Spiritually-speaking, both the Winter and Summer Solstice are times of great change. The Winter Solstice marks the longest night and the shortest day; the Summer Solstice marks the longest day and the shortest night.
The Winter Solstice is a time of the rebirth of the Sun.
It is also a time to celebrate the energy of the Moon. It is a powerful time for renewal and self-reflection. With the Winter Solstice comes the need to rise from the ashes and begin afresh.
The Summer Solstice is a time of being alive and refreshed.
We are ready to take action after the deep contemplation and renewal of the Winter Solstice. The concept of rebirth is powerful with both solstices – think of a phoenix bursting into flames and rising from the ashes again to get a better idea of the cycle of the solstice.
The Solstices & the Chinese Zodiac
When it comes to how the solstice affects the Chinese Zodiac, we have to look at the different elements of each sign. Each sign of the zodiac is represented by one element naturally, but depending on the year you were born, you will have another element influencing you.
For example, the Tiger is represented by Wood, but if you were born in 1986, you would be a Tiger also represented by Fire.
The solstices have a profound impact on your element. Read on to find out what the Winter and Summer Solstices have in store for your Chinese Zodiac sign!

Have you ever viewed the splendor of a glistening meteor shower?
Meteors are space rocks that sometimes enter our atmosphere, causing a visual spectacle of lights that resemble shooting stars. But have you ever thought about the effect this natural phenomenon might have on us astrologically?
While meteors are much smaller and have less influence over us than planets, they still create energy in the atmosphere that has the potential to affect us – especially those meteors that recur on a regular basis.
Meteor showers may not have a traditional place in astrology as we know it today, but they were considered particularly powerful to ancient astrologers.
Today, we’re going to take a deeper look into meteor showers, their meaning, and how they tie into the world of astrology.
What Are Meteor Showers?
Also known as a meteoroid, meteors are those zooming chunks of space dust that we often refer to as shooting stars. When there are many meteors dancing around our atmosphere, we refer to that as a meteor shower.
The Astrological Significance of Meteor Showers
While we tend to look at large or fixed stars and planets in astrology, most anything that occurs near our atmosphere or within our solar system is likely to shift or at least influence the energy down here on Earth.
One of the astrological meanings of meteor showers is change and transformation. Much like a New Moon or Lunar eclipse, meteor showers bring in new energy and encourage us to look forward to new and exciting experiences in life.
That means that not only is a meteor shower a good time to take a blanket and a bottle of wine outside and watch the spectacular view, but it is also a good time for manifestation and dreaming up new desires for your future self.
Why Do We Wish Upon a Star?
Have you ever wondered why we wish upon a shooting star? Now that we know that a shooting star is actually a meteor, we can see why this celestial event may be more significant than we knew.
Ancient Greek astronomer, Ptolemy, suggested that meteors were the result of the gods peering open the veil between their world and ours to look down upon us, allowing shooting stars to fly through the gap.
Other Ancient Greeks believed that there were human souls trapped in the vessel of shooting stars and that wishing upon them was a lucky act.
There are many myths and superstitions surrounding shooting stars. For instance, it has been said that a shooting star appearing to the right of your body indicates good luck approaching, while a shooting star on the left may signal a more negative omen.
It is also thought that the first shooting star spotted during a meteor shower is infused with a unique kind of magic, making it the most potent star to make a wish upon.
There are even nursery rhymes dedicated to the tradition of wishing upon a star:
Starlight, star bright,
First star I see tonight,
I wish I may; I wish I might,
Have this wish I wish tonight.
Next time you see a shooting star, be sure to make a wish!

Recurring Meteor Showers
It is thought that the meteor showers that recur on a regular basis have more influence over our daily lives, meaning these are the best meteor showers to make wishes and practice manifesting.
Perseids Meteor Shower
The Perseids meteor shower occurs each year between July 17th and August 24th, when the Earth glides through a path of debris left behind by the Swift-Tuttle comet. Records of Perseids date back to 36 AD, but the Swift-Tuttle comet wasn’t discovered until 1862.
During this shower, one can see anywhere from 60 to 100 meteors in a single hour. This meteor shower is named after the constellation that the meteors appear from, Perseus, the ancient Greek who killed Medusa, the snake-headed monster.
This particular meteor shower encourages you to let go of fear and move on from past trauma. During this shower, it’s a good time to wish for your mental and emotional wellness.
Draconid Meteor Shower
The Draconid meteor shower takes place each year in the month of October. While it doesn’t provide nearly as many meteors as the Perseids, it still possesses powerful energy for change and transformation.
This meteor shower is named for the constellation Draco the Dragon, and the meteors themselves are the result of debris leftover from the Comet 21P/Giacobini-Zinner.
Draco is connected to the dragon of Hesperides, who guarded the garden’s golden apples. Draco provides artistic, creative energy, but it is also rather somber energy.
During the Draconid showers, this is a time to gather your fierce strength – breathe the same fire that the dragon breathes. Even if you’re feeling melancholy, make a wish for your true and courageous nature to be revealed.
Do Meteor Showers Affect Your Birth Chart?
While meteor showers, or shooting stars, are a good time – astrologically speaking – for making wishes and manifestation work, they don’t have any influence over your birth chart.
Because meteors take place in the Earth’s upper atmosphere, they do not inherently connect to the archetypal significance of your natal chart.
However, that doesn’t mean that shooting stars don’t hold their own astrological significance in our lives. There’s a reason why we wish upon shooting stars – it’s a time of promise, of change, of new beginnings, and of manifesting our deepest desires.
When is the Next Meteor Shower?
If you’re ready to start attracting your dreams and wishing on the stars, you’re probably wondering when you can catch the next meteor shower.
The next meteor shower with wishing potential will be the Geminids, occurring from December 4th to December 17th – with peak nights being the 13th and 14th of the month. This is the time to take a cozy blanket and a notebook outside, sit down with your wishes, and wait for the shooting stars to appear.
Don’t Forget to Make a Wish!
Each speck of space dust is connected in our Universe, and the beauty of astrology is learning how these events affect us. Meteor showers may not be considered a big deal in most astrological circles. They are nevertheless a time for making wishes and setting intentions.
The next time you see a shooting star, remember its significance, close your eyes, and make a wish.

In a move, you probably wouldn’t expect from 2020, December 2020 is all about finding the calm in the chaos. As a 7 Universal Month (1 + 2 + 2 + 0 + 2 + 0 = 7), this month, self-reflection and self-care are on the cards.
That’s some exciting news!
Between Christmas and endless present-buying, December isn’t typically known for its chilled vibes. But what does “typical” even mean in 2020, am I right?
December 2020 could be the biggest plot twist of 2020 yet (but this time, that’s a good thing!).
This month, an air of quiet will wash over the collective. In a Cosmic U-turn of epic proportions, the madness and stress of this year are about to end!
Don’t forget to check in on your free daily numerology reading throughout the month!
December 2020: Ask Big Questions
Firstly, let’s get one thing straight; calm and quiet do not mean stop!
The Universe’s message is to slow down, but she’s not telling you to switch off completely. In fact, just the opposite. The slower vibes of this month are giving you the space you need to look at the bigger picture.
The number 7 is all about your inner truth, your life’s purpose, and your higher wisdom. This year, you’ve likely gotten caught up in the chaos of your “day to day,” with no opportunity to stop and think about where you are on your life’s journey.
- When was the last time you checked in with yourself, your spirit, your soul?
- When was the last time you nourished yourself from the inside out?
- When was the last time you reflected on whether your outer world aligned with your inner world?
The month asks you to embark on a soul-searching journey.
The break from the chaos that the number 7 affords you is not so you can sit back and do nothing all month; it’s so you can look at your life, your path, and your purpose with the clarity you need.
As you gaze into your inner mirror, you may have to spend a little more time alone. This is the perfect time to create a solitary retreat that nourishes and supports your physical and mental well-being. Even if you’re not typically a meditator, you may find it does something for you this month that you’ve not experienced before.
As a practical step, try to improve your private space’s ambiance with things that signify peace to you. Try incense, meditative music, and soothing artwork, or whatever works for you.
Listen to Your Intuition
Your intuition will be on fire this month, so make sure you listen to what it is telling you. As you reflect inwards, the messages from your mind’s eye will likely come through thick and fast, so you might have difficulty listening to what they are saying.
Embrace the #7s ethos, and take it slow. Accept the messages you can and trust that you will hear the ones that matter most to your higher purpose. Act when your gut tells you to.
Choose Your Friends Wisely
While this will largely be a solitary month, if you need to reach out to people, make sure that the time spent with them is positive, authentic, and mutually nourishing. Now is not the time to deal with the toxic people in your life.
Your Personal Look at December 2020
While what you’ve read will be the theme that the collective will feel as one, it’s vital that you also understand how your personal numerology affects your December 2020 for you too.
By understanding your Personal Month number, you will gain a deeper insight into how this month looks for you. So, calculate your Personal Month number and skip to your personal December 2020 numeroscope forecast.

How to Calculate Your Personal Month Number
To calculate your Personal Month number, you’ll need to add your Personal Year number to the current month number (that’s the calendar month number – which for December is always 12 – and not the Universal Month number we’ve just described!).
Then reduce this to a single digit, and look it up below to read your forecast for the month ahead.
First, let’s find your Personal Year number:
- First, reduce your day and month of birth to a single digit. If you were born on June 23rd, your calculation goes like this: 6 + 2 + 3 = 11 and 1 + 1 = 2.
- Next, reduce the current year to a single digit. For 2020, this is 4, because 2 + 0 + 2 + 0 = 4.
- Lastly, add these two numbers together and reduce to a single-digit
- So, for the person born on June 23, 2 + 4 = 6. They’re in a Personal Year number 6.
Back to the Personal Month number:
Simply add your Personal Year number to the current Month Number (which for December is 12), reduce if necessary. And voila, you have calculated your Personal Month number.
So, our friend with the birthday of June 23rd would work out 6 + 12 = 18, and 1 + 8 = 9. For her, October 2020 is an 8 Personal Month.

Sometimes the thought of buying presents for your nearest and dearest just makes you go “Eek!”
It’s no surprise, really.
How many times has someone got you that bar of soap or gadget you’ve never used, and you’ve done your absolute best to feel appreciation (which is just as well – it truly is the thought that counts, remember?) only to experience that inevitable heart-sinking feeling at the realization it’s something that will never see the light of day again after it gets stuffed away in your drawer for all eternity?
It happens to us all!
However, there is a way to gauge what your loved one would want without frantic worrying – and the answer lies in numerology!
Some Numerology Basics
Suppose you’re bad at math (like me). No need to get anxious. It’s easy!
Numerology is an ancient science of numbers that gives you information about a person’s personality.
You do it by applying a number to each letter in their first and last name, and the numbers of their birth date, if you know it. Then you simply just add up all of those numbers, condense the final number into a single digit by adding two digits together, and bam. You’ve got a Life Path number!

Your Gift Guide, Based on Life Path Numbers
Life Path 1: One of a Kind
Ones like anything one of a kind, unique, or new.
As such, they’ve got pretty happy souls now that we’re transitioning into the Age of Aquarius. They love anything which is different and which nobody else has.
Try the latest gadget from an electronic store or a one-of-a-kind creation from Etsy.com. Something vintage wouldn’t be out of the question either, so make sure to explore your latest thrift shop for some quirky finds.
Life Path 2: Sentimental
The 2s on your list wants something personal or thoughtful. A poem you’ve written, tickets to a show you’d enjoy together, or a framed picture of the two of you (if you’re close) would make their day.
A lovely gift idea for them is a personalized mug, which always goes down well with them. Be prepared for the heart-melting reaction.
Life Path 3: Luxury
When shopping for a 3, think either entertainment or pampering.
A spa day, cozy robe and/or slippers, or scented bath oils are perfect. These people love indulging in pampering and love anything that makes them feel good. These lavender bath salts will work wonders on them.
Life Path 4: Practical
Don’t even think about getting a 4, something they can’t use. They want something functional or from the Earth, so they’d love an organizer or bag with lots of pockets.
They’re money savvy, so they’d even be happy with plain old cash or a savings bond, and because they understand the value of money, they’re not expecting some big extravagant gifts.
Something nice and simple does the trick. This set of kitchen tools would be highly appreciated!
Life Path 5: Sensual
If you’re shopping for a 5, consider that they might prefer an adventurous activity or a trip to a new place, even if it’s local.
But if you do get them an item, know they are very sensual, so they’d want anything they can taste, touch, or feel. These people need grounding, so it’s a good idea to get them something to connect with their spiritual side.
These yoga flashcards are a great way to get them in touch with their spiritual selves.

Life Path 6: Cozy & Intimate
6s particularly enjoy music, food, and cuddly things. Dinner and a show would make their day (if possible).
They also love flowers and cozy home decor.
Remember, these are the great romantics of numerology, so they’re all about the heart-melting and the swooning. These crystal bowl candle holder sets, or something similar, are sure to please their aesthetics!
Life Path 7: Brain Food
They are learners and sleuths. Move on, Sherlock – 7 has arrived. Educational books, an enticing podcast subscription, or anything involving mystery would make a 7 smile.
Gift certificates, antiques, or something historic would work great too.
Just remember they’re particular about quality. This selection of criminal mind puzzles is guaranteed to entertain them for days on end!
Life Path 8: All the Things!
8s just love gifts. All gifts. Especially cash or gift cards! They’re impressed with brand names or anything signed by the creator.
Overall they’re easy to please.
If you want to make an 8 really happy, though, give them something that fires the imagination. This set of fragrance oils will take them all around the world while still in the comfort of their own home!
Life Path 9: Personal
A 9 just wants to know you care.
Something personalized or custom made just for them would make a big impact. A small surprise trip or a virtual concert would mean a lot to them too.
What they really need is relaxation. This neck massage pillow can really help them after a long hard day.
What Will You Buy This Holiday Season?
Wasn’t that easy? Who wouldn’t want to gain more insight into the people they care about using numerology-assisted gift selection? Choosing presents based on numerology can be both rewarding and accurate!
Now instead of racking your brain for the perfect gift, you can have fun shopping quickly and with more confidence. So go ahead and rock your holiday shopping this year!
Oh, and pass this article along to those you know so they know what you’d fancy as a gift this year too. It’s only fair, after all – plus, it may mean you won’t get lumbered with so much soap this year.

Born between November 21st and December 20th, the Sagittarius man is a charming traveler who attracts many and falls for few.
His traits might include his love for travel, his compassion towards strangers, and his desire to expand. Being ruled by Jupiter, they are always looking for opportunities to seize the day and learn new enlightening perspectives. They read, study, explore, and dive into new topics like a ferocious animal, but their kind and bubbly demeanor makes them personable and likable.
They often seem to be blown by the wind being a Mutable sign, giving them a short attention span.
Mix that with the Fire element that they are, and you get a passion that is more likely to have a one-night stand with an idea than stay stuck on one topic (or person). The Sagittarius sign has many admirable qualities being archer of the zodiac archetypes.
He is wise, optimistic, a scholar, an artist, and a friend to all. He is known for his bravery and his goodwill for the planet and all the creatures in it. But some can certainly get frustrated that he’s so independent that he doesn’t need you to feel complete.

Personality Characteristics of the Sagittarius Man
The Sagittarius man traits are unmistakable. This sign will always choose to be outside when possible.
They are inspired by epic scenery and often find themselves in the depths of the wilderness. This also means they are a lot of fun and will always have great ideas to break the monotony. They are seldom idle and always on the move, both in where they live and work.
This also goes for who they love, as their passions are just as varied in love as in the rest of life. They want to know about many things, people, and places. They crave endless experiences.
A Sagittarius man’s personality’s spontaneous nature can add stress to their lives if they aren’t aware of just how strong their own wanderlust is. If you want to spend time with them, suggest a hike, an obscure restaurant, or a bus ride to an unknown destination. They are the ones who love to blog about their travels and derive insights from the different cultures they immerse themselves in.
They are very philosophical and always looking for ways to help humanity evolve. The archer’s arrow aims to evolve humanity’s soul, which is why this big picture man will not settle for the typical nine to five life.
A Sagittarius man needs a purpose more than a high income.
They are tremendously good at meshing with every person as they find “the positive” easily. It’s easier for them to see what they have in common instead of what they might differ on.
The Sagittarius man is direct, communicates well, and excels in positions where his job is to be the inspiring catalyst like a teacher, travel agent, or writer. It’s hard to keep track of what they are doing, but you can keep track of their emotions with the Sagittarius man horoscope.

The Sagittarius Man in Love
The Sagittarius man in love is going to doll his affection with grand gestures and real creativity.
He is a confident lover who will make you feel drawn to him with his charismatic demeanor. But dating a Sagittarius man can be short-lived and lead to heartbreak if you’re looking for someone who only has his sights set on you. That is the not so ideal truth about what Sagittarius man is like in a relationship.
His idealistic nature makes him addicted to the chase, but he doesn’t often romanticize commitment. Be sure to ask him what he wants before getting too attached. A Sagittarius man secretly wants to find their soul mate, but their standards are high. They want a worldly partner who thinks outside of the box, is informed about the world and truly takes action from a caring place.
There’s no secret about how to attract a Sagittarius man. It’s written out in the stars. You must be a person of high ideals, courage, and honor.
They admire someone who is tenacious, and they find both a spiritual soul and an intelligent mind sexy. They are also drawn to people who seem to be exotic or know about exotic cultures. Now you know how to get a Sagittarius man, but make sure to understand their intentions before deciding they are “the one.”
There’s no use falling for a man if they only plan to be in town temporarily unless you’re wanting to jet set with them and give up the luxury of knowing what each day brings.
If you’re trying to impress them, give them a poem in another language that means something to you, find a store with authentic artifacts from another country, and know what the artifact means to that culture. Take him on a trip or get him tickets to go somewhere. That’s how to make a Sagittarius man fall in love, explore the world with him, and allow him to dream without boundaries.
Keep up on love with the Sagittarius love horoscope whether you are a Sagittarius or are dating a Sagittarius!
Sagittarius Compatibility & Communication
As a Fire sign, the Sagittarius man communicates with clarity and gumption.
He has a spark to his words that motivates people. The ruling planet of Jupiter adds to that energy because he really seems to have a blessed life, and his optimism for life is shared with others when he speaks. He appreciates someone who will be real with them and cut through the pleasantries to talk about deep topics. He will avoid negative people, gossipers, and people who are in the habit of complaining.
No matter if you’re a lover, a friend, a boss, or a neighbor, if you’re an Aquarius, Aries, Leo, or Libra, you’re hands down the best match for a Sagittarius man, even if you’re different ages.
However, if you’re Pisces or Virgo, your core personality is going to be more at odds. Don’t panic! You don’t have to throw away the opportunity to have a relationship with a Sagittarius just because your Sun signs are not compatible. Compatibility is determined by the entire birth chart and not just the Sun sign.

The I Ching is a book of wisdom based on ancient Chinese scholars’ philosophical writings and musings, namely Confucius. It is the oldest of all the classical books on divination and wisdom, written around 1000 BC.
It is not an easy read, nor could this form of divination be a simple pick for a parlor game – the I Ching is a masterwork of philosophy that requires patience and a mind for profound interpretation.
And while it could be considered a metaphysical “game” to be played in the way one might throw a Tarot card and divine a fortune, the answers and guidance provided by the I Ching are best left to the seasoned reader for interpretation.
Today, we review your most burning questions about the I Ching to better understand this ancient book of wisdom!
Can the I Ching Predict the Future?
If one asks a question that pertains to the future, then yes, the I Ching can respond to that question with truth and wisdom.
However, the I Ching is not a “yes” or “no” form of mystical divination. In fact, you will never get a straightforward answer from the I Ching – it is meant to utilize your thought process, your intelligence.
As for predicting the future, it can give profound advice for how one should proceed in life, and depending on the hexagram you throw and the lines that accompany that hexagram, with patience and effort, one can behold a wonder of information that is strictly and specifically related to the question.
How is the I Ching Used?
When we inquire of the oracle that is the I Ching, we toss coins to get a result. I use pennies, but Chinese coins can be used as well.
The coins have two sides and depending on how they fall, they display either heads or tails.
Heads have a numerical value, as do tails, and after we toss the coins six times, we build what is called a hexagram based on the numerical outcome of the coin toss. It may sound complicated, but it’s quite easy to catch on to once you’re involved.
When we finish tossing the coins, we add up the lines and numbers, and we get “our” personal hexagram — the hexagram that holds the information we need and the answers we are looking for. There are 64 hexagrams within the I Ching, and it is through the tossing of the coins that we come up with the correct guidance for our particular situation.
If we are inquiring about love, we concentrate on our question while we are tossing the coins. The coins are picking up on our energy, reflecting us, taking on our concerns; they are building an answer for us.

How Does the I Ching Relate to Divination?
Anything can be considered divination if a seeker wishes to know what is unknown and uses a physical method to get their answer.
The I Ching is a book of wisdom; one could potentially flip through the pages and place their finger on a page and get an answer – that is divination. The I Ching has so much to offer if one has the curiosity to find out more. If we ask, we receive – that is divination. We “divine” an answer by asking it of the oracle, and the “oracle” is the I Ching itself, also known as The Book of Changes.
In the same way, one thinks of a “divining rod” as an object that can lead us to water, so it goes with the I Ching. Within its pages are words of divine wisdom. We use the hexagrams for specificity and individual guidance.
Does the I Ching Relate to Astrology?
It does not relate to astrology. However, it can, if astrology is mentioned in the original inquiry.
It is not based on the Chinese Zodiac, nor is it based on any astrological predictor. However, it is based on common sense and real-life matters of the heart.
The I Ching will not talk about the Year of the Rat, nor will it mention historical dates in time, but it most definitely can help understand the Chinese Zodiac. If you were to find out your Chinese Zodiac animal, you could then bring that knowledge to an I Ching reading, where the Book of Changes would further on that knowledge.

What Are the Hexagrams of the I Ching?
There are 64 hexagrams in the I Ching, which also have within them changing lines that give the reader a second set of hexagram meanings to interpret.
The I Ching’s hexagrams cover the gamut of human experiences, and each hexagram can be found in the book, written with flourished prose and insight. As mentioned, this is not a walk in the park – this is a study, a spiritual scripture that demands devout practice and skillful intuition.
Each Hexagram consists of two parts, an upper trigram and a lower trigram. The sides on a coin determine which hexagram is ours to discover, and that determination happens when we toss the coins six times.
Each hexagram has a message that is unique to each question asked of the I Ching. And while many of the hexagrams’ names seem archaic and outdated, the wisdom inside is rich and relevant – that is, the miracle of ancient wisdom is always relevant.
Try the I Ching
We have learned that the I Ching is a book of wisdom based on the ancient-yet-relevant teachings of Confucius, that is accessed through the tossing of coins, which give us a count of lines that make up what is known as a hexagram.
When we arrive at our given hexagram, we look it up in the book, and there we find our advice-answer-guidance. We’ve learned that the guidance is intense, specific, and needs analyzation – that is what interpretation is all about!
The I Ching is not a quick fix for divining an answer, but rather an investigative journey into the issues that concern us, with a common-sense approach to fixing them. Asking the I Ching a question is never a bad idea, but be prepared to receive an honest assessment and a workable outcome.
If you are looking for knowledge, the I Ching is the most comprehensive divination form.

Here we are at the beginning of 2021 with all its possibilities, and we can sense the excitement and hope for the future that we’ve all been waiting for. A new year brings a feeling, a freshness, and a chance to start over again – mirroring the refreshing energy of each month’s New Moon.
Every month, we experience a New Moon that wipes the slate clean and gives us the momentum to start new projects and try different things. This month, that New Moon is occurring in the sign of Capricorn, whose season we are currently benefiting from.
Just after the start of the new year, we get an opportunity to revive that sense of rejuvenation and take on a renewed sense of hope for the future. This is a time to make New Moon wishes, work on manifestation, and await your magical results.
If you want to know everything you need to about the New Moon in Capricorn, what it means for you, and how to make the most of this fresh, fantastic energy, keep reading! Your New Moon wishes are waiting for you.
Don’t forget. The January 2021 Astrology Calendar is here! Keep track of everything from New Moons to retrogrades and so much more.
What is the New Moon in Capricorn?
Each time a New Moon rolls around, you have the opportunity to make wishes and manifest the things you want in your life for that month – or even further into the future.
We often start to see the results of these New Moon wishes by the time the following Full Moon makes its appearance, which is why we recommend making a list of your New Moon wishes each month to sharpen your manifestation skills and begin building your dream life.
This time around, the New Moon – which takes place on January 13th, 2021– will be spinning through the Earth sign, Capricorn. Earth signs are grounded, responsible, and they have a good head on their shoulders.
This may be why we get so motivated to make changes during January, near the beginning of Capricorn season. And a New Moon in Capricorn has a similar motivating effect, encouraging us to begin looking toward the future and making plans to reach our goals!
Capricorn also rules over the 10th house in astrology, the house that deals with careers and finances. You can expect a wave of ambition and excitement regarding your career during this New Moon in Capricorn as the skies flood your mind with brilliant new thoughts and ideas.
You may feel more concerned with financial security and abundance, which you can and should address when making your New Moon wishes! As the New Moon in Capricorn is the first New Moon of the year, it’s the perfect time to start building manifestation habits and New Moon rituals that you can carry with you throughout the year.
Finally, Capricorn is ruled by Saturn, the planet connected to responsibility, discipline, and karma.
Saturn teaches us the tough lessons we need to learn in life to become better, more evolved versions of ourselves. And while those lessons may sometimes be challenging or even painful, they’re necessary on your journey to help you blossom into the person you’re meant to be. This energy may present itself during this New Moon, and you may feel like focusing more on your karmic duties and responsibilities than usual.
This is the perfect time to check in on your free daily money horoscope and your free daily career horoscope!
The New Moon is invisible to the naked eye, and that literal darkness is sometimes carried into our lives on an emotional level. While emotions aren’t quite as heavy as they can be during a Full Moon, you may feel more introspective than usual.
On top of that, Capricorn is one of the more serious signs of the zodiac, thanks to its ruling planet, Saturn.
You might feel lost or like you’re “in the dark,” which is why it’s so important to focus on New Moon rituals that lift your spirit and help you connect to the energies of the Universe.
Themes of the New Moon in Capricorn
Each New Moon takes on the energy and themes associated with the sign that it’s in – and with this lunar transit occurring in Capricorn, we can expect to see Capricorn themes popping up in our lives for about 48 hours before and after the New Moon takes place.
Let’s take a look at the energy you might experience during this part of the lunar cycle:
- Financial stability
- Family values
- Hard work
Looking at these aspects associated with the zodiac sign Capricorn, you can see why the beginning of each new year – which takes place all cozy in Capricorn – is accompanied with resolutions and a desire to buckle down.
But even if you’ve already broken a resolution or two, you can count on the New Moon in Capricorn to revamp your energy and help you find your focus again!
Who Will the New Moon in Capricorn Affect the Most?
While everyone will feel and benefit from this energy, it may come on like a wave for certain signs of the zodiac.
For instance, those with strong Capricorn placements – like a Sun, Moon, or Capricorn Rising – are likely to be jolted by a bolt of energy during the New Moon in Capricorn. These folks need to remember to make time for relaxing rituals during this New Moon, as all this momentum may cause you to overextend yourself.
Other fellow Earth signs – Taurus and Virgo – are also likely to feel a surge of this energy rushing through their body. Taurus may be more goal-oriented than usual, while Virgo may choose to use this energy to organize their surrounding spaces.
Water signs – Cancer, Scorpio, and Pisces – can expect a bit of relief from the typical dark emotions associated with New Moons, as the grounded energy of Capricorn helps them detach from their emotions. Air signs – Gemini, Libra, and Aquarius – will find it easier to focus on their chores and projects. And Fire signs – Aries, Leo, and Sagittarius – will finally be able to turn that passion into action during this New Moon.

How to Make the Most of the Capricorn New Moon
Now that you know a bit more about what to expect during the New Moon in Capricorn, you might be wondering how to best utilize this energy. The following tips and tricks will help you ensure that you’re making the most of this fresh, motivating energy.
Re-Evaluate Your Goals
While the New Moon in Capricorn may encourage you to work hard towards your goals and dreams, it’s an even better time to reconsider those goals and make sure that they align with your spirit currently.
The Great Conjunction that took place on December 21st is shifting many things around, including our philosophies, ideals, and spiritual energy. You may be working your fingers to the bone toward a goal that no longer fills your soul with delight and passion.
So, take this time to sit down and truly consider your momentum, your path. Are you working towards something that aligns with who you are, who you want to be? If not, this may be the time to start considering other options.
Look for Signs
Let’s say you’ve re-evaluated your goals and found that you might want to shift your path – but you’re not quite sure where to go next. Fortunately, the New Moon is a time when signs from the Universe are flowing like water, and those signs may be exactly what you need to make your next move.
To amplify and focus your intuition, spend some time balancing and opening the Third Eye chakra, the chakra associated with your intuitive center.
Imagine healing, indigo light surrounding your body, and penetrating the Third Eye. Working with labradorite and moonstone is fantastic for healing this chakra and aligning your spiritual energy with the Universe.
Pay special attention to flashes of insight or overwhelming emotions you have right now, as these may also be celestial messages meant just for you. You can also try this New Moon in Capricorn Tarot spread to gain even more insight right now.
A New Moon in Capricorn is associated with the concepts of hard work and responsibility, but that doesn’t mean you can forego your self-care routine. This is an excellent time to pamper yourself, allowing your body to regain the strength it needs to keep up the hard work.
Draw yourself a bubble bath, complete with a glass of wine, your favorite album, and a fizzy bath bomb. Take a long stroll through your favorite park, soaking in the sunshine and crisp air. Pop some popcorn, put on your pajamas, and cozy up in front of the fireplace with your favorite book or movie.
Taking care of your body and mind is essential, especially when making your dreams come true.
Organize Your Space
This momentous energy is great for taking care of things around the house, like organizing and decluttering your sacred space. And as this is the beginning of the year, it’s the perfect time to make space for all of the experiences and new things to come into your home this year.
Take a day to purge anything that you haven’t used in the last six months. Taking these items to your local donation center will not only help your space feel lighter and more refreshed, but it will also help those in need!

Focus on Your New Moon Wishes
The New Moon is always a great time to make New Moon wishes and work on manifesting your goals and dreams because this is the beginning of a new lunar cycle – a chance for new beginnings and transformation. The things you manifest now can begin to show up in your life in as little as two weeks – when the Moon is full – so now is the time to start bringing these wishes into existence.
Try lighting a candle, burning some incense, and sitting down with a notebook and your favorite crystals on the night of the New Moon. Begin by breathing deeply and settling into a comfortable position. When you feel aligned with the celestial energy surrounding you, make a New Moon list of all the wishes you wish to come true in your life, big or small.
When you’ve finished compiling your list, thank the Universe for beginning to make way for your dreams to come true.
When is the Next New Moon?
The next New Moon will take place on February 11th, 2021, in the sign of Aquarius. Get ready for progressive thinking and humanitarian vibes!
Use the New Moon in Capricorn to Your Advantage
This is the start of a new year, and the New Moon allows you to set your intentions for the year to come. Don’t sell yourself short by overlooking this magical energy; take the time now to start bringing your dreams into your reality. The New Moon in Capricorn sets the stage for you to manifest the things you truly want in life.
What will you wish for?
Tarot cards like The Tower or Death regularly can turn heads and stop our hearts when they appear in a spread. Sometimes, the “scary” Tarot cards or darker cards in a Tarot deck can even scare us out of reading cards altogether or prevent people from wanting to get a reading. However, at the end of the day, Tarot is not meant to scare you but to illuminate the truth.
This means that even some of the “scariest” Tarot cards actually can contain a positive twist or bubble of insight in the darkest of times. After all, life isn’t always as black and white as “good versus bad.”
If you’ve just encountered a “scary” Tarot card and are hoping to see what positivity you can glean from the experience, read on!

6 “Scary” Tarot Cards That Are Actually Positive
1. The Tower
When things are stagnant for too long… you may just need to have your castle crumble to ash.
The Tower is typically a scary Tarot card because it represents the destruction of everything we know. Relationships end, jobs come to a finish, and perhaps even our sense of self and identity gets flipped on its head. Without a doubt, change is scary, especially when it involves a complete collapse of what’s familiar.
However, this isn’t necessarily a bad omen, no matter how much you dislike the idea of losing what you know. At the end of the day, Tower moments are often necessary and only create space for something new and better suited for you.
This scary Tarot card often spooks most Tarot beginners, as the image often looks like someone is lying in their death.
However, those familiar with the card’s meaning will recognize the 4 of Swords as a card of rest, not death! This mysterious card often meets us when we need rest and rejuvenation, especially if you’ve been working too hard or just finished a long path or journey.
See — the suit of Swords isn’t always so ominous! It’s here to offer some regular, much-needed self-care advice too.
Death is an understandably concerning card at first glance, but like The Tower, it only arrives to help.
Rather than physical or literal death, the kind of death that this “scary” Tarot card brings to the table is more of an internal transformation. The Tower cuts out the excess of what we no longer need and leaves a space, but Death moves us more obviously from point A to point B.
We find Death when we require something different, and often Death delivers by bringing us more in alignment with our true soul’s desires and goals.
After all, within the death of anything, there is the opportunity for rebirth as well!

4. 5 of Cups
Heartache and loss are never fun, so having the 5 of Cups in your forecast can be a real damper on your day.
This scary Tarot card definitely points out disappointment, sadness, and loss in your life, one that cuts an emotional wound thanks to the suit of Cups. However, the positive meaning in the card is inherent to everything the 5 of Cups represents.
The figure in the 5 of Cups gazes sadly at the spilled Cups, completely missing the two full ones right behind them.
Ultimately, it’s a reminder that there is actually so much good and beauty waiting for you once you’re done healing.
5. 9 of Swords
This one might seem strange, as we know the 9 of Swords is a particularly daunting beast to deal with when it arrives.
Deep anxieties, our darkest fears, and rampant nightmares are all present in this gloomy card. However, the struggles that the 9 of Swords represents are always internal ones, meaning that they often do not actually hold any weight in our realities.
In other words, seeing the 9 of Swords is a validation that your anxieties about what bad thing may happen is rooted nowhere in reality. That doesn’t make it any less real for you as you struggle with your fears, of course — an internal battle is still a battle.
But know that the 9 of Swords itself can come to negate what you fear will happen. And sometimes, that’s all we need.

6. 10 of Swords
Like all 10’s of Tarot, the 10 of Swords represents an ending.
However… it’s not a happy one. Undoubtedly, the 10 of Swords is quite the fright when it comes up in a spread unexpectedly, as we might take it to mean that our relationships are going to end in heartbreak, or that the job we like very much will be coming to an unexpected close.
And yet, there are many times in our lives that we know moments like this to have happened. It’s very likely that you have already experienced the 10 of Swords multiple times in your life, and guess what — you’re still here!
The 10 of Swords’ real meaning indeed represents an ending, but it doesn’t mean that a new beginning isn’t right around the corner. Sometimes this card arrives to help us dodge bullets, or we need to learn to let go.
Positive Thinking & Tarot Readings
A Tarot reading or Tarot card is about as scary or negative as we allow it to be.
Of course, we shouldn’t just ignore the negative things or only focus on what we want to see. On the contrary, Tarot is about seeing the full spectrum of experience. In acknowledging everything that our cards could be trying to communicate, we are more likely to glean all kinds of insight from a reading — positive and negative.
This is why not letting a Tarot card you perceive as “bad” scare you immediately is important! Rather than holding preconceived ideas about how exactly a card might manifest in your life, be open to all the beautiful unknowns that even a little darkness can bring.
Soon, you might even find new comfort in seeing some Swords pop up in your spread!
