December 2: Jupiter enters Capricorn
WINTER AND SPICE
At 10:20 a.m. on the west coast, Jupiter makes his entrance in tropical Capricorn… to mixed reception. Jupiter will spend a year in his most uncomfortable sign after spending a year in one of his favorite signs, so we have to anticipate some change in fortunes, political and economic shifts, and a process of contraction inevitably following the sins of our excesses.
Today we see challenges arising and continuing in heart matters, and yet a good omen from Mars in Scorpio in sextile to Venus in Capricorn, suggesting friendly help or a strong will to confront challenges with a determination to reach a positive outcome. If no such outcome is present, Mars and Ketu (south node of the moon) are likely to act in a cutting fashion, separating us from business or interpersonal opportunities that are no longer a part of our best path of growth and development. It’s okay if the process makes us feel anxious, creative focus or chemistry with others wins the day.
