Having lucky Jupiter in your career zone square off with Pluto in your sign over the last year has been lucrative at best, but maddening at worst. On the 4th, the last of these squares marks the end of the upheaval. It’s a major professional accomplishment, and the Aquarius lunar eclipse on the 7th delivers big financial returns! A few days later, Mercury retrograde in your adventure sector cranks up the dial on your wanderlust, giving you a sort of “senioritis” for the foreseeable future. Have fun in small ways, but don’t shirk your responsibilities. (Of course, a Capricorn would never really do that!)

The main event is the massive Leo solar eclipse on the 21st. If you’ve been working on something in secret, like a court case or seduction, it finally comes to fruition, and in dramatic fashion. Saturn (your ruling planet) direct in your secrets sector on the 25th sets everything out in the open. Jupiter in sync to Saturn on the 27th gives you some kind of satisfying conclusion to the way everything’s played out. With any luck, Mercury retrograde back into Leo from the 31st will help you tie up the last loose ends.
