How to Be More Productive During the Capricorn Moon

May 3, 2018

Under this weekend’s responsible Capricorn moon, you may feel unable to relax and enjoy yourself until you’ve checked off at least a few items on your to-do list. But don’t stress—use Friday and Saturday’s industrious energy to your advantage! 

With Mercury in Aries, you might be eager to start new projects—but you should probably finish a few old ones first. And be warned: Saturday’s Mercury-Jupiter quincunx will test your patience but promises rewards if you follow through.

By Sunday, you should be ready to enjoy some well-earned downtime, when a sextile between the sun in Taurus and Neptune in Pisces invites us all to open up to the creative inspiration that comes in quiet moments. 

Below, tips on getting to the good times fast this weekend.
