However, this can be a very productive energy, exciting and satisfying, but be careful not to assume it will let you off the hook from meeting your responsibilities and duties. They'll still be waiting for you after the wild ride is done. But it might help to get you started on new projects that can breathe new life back into you especially if you've been working too hard lately and return you back to earth feeling refreshed with more breathing space.
Venus forms a Wedge aspect pattern with the Mars-Uranus opposition. Venus is the apex of the Wedge triangle, which can provide a creative outlet for the tension of the opposition. She is also Out of Bounds and less likely to be overly confined by convention—in all, a very powerful combination! Jupiter is also at the apex, and although a tad on the wide side in orb, Jupiter still has a very strong presence in the Wedge pattern.
Venus, with Jupiter bringing up the rear, is therefore capable of bringing a creative and inspirational, yet productive and stabilizing, focus to the Mars-Uranus impulsiveness and recklessness. The question is: what would you like to do with this firebrand energy? A surprise getaway with your sweetie that can bring your relationship back into balance?
Move forward with an exciting but long-term project that you've been putting off? Follow your impulses to find ways to bring a little joy, happiness or contentment into someone's life? This could be a great energy under which to do holiday shopping, if you follow your instincts and also listen the Capricorn side of Venus warning you not to blow your budget. The visions we offer our children shape the future. It matters what those visions are.

Often they become self-fulfilling prophecies. Dreams are maps. This can be a time of great excitement and inspiration. Jupiter is riding high in his own sign and is also conjunct the Galactic Centre , which amplifies his revelation that all things are possible if you just have enough faith.
The New Moon is also in Fiery Sagittarius, giving a renewed sense of meaning and significance to your ability to focus your faith. Whatever you put your faith in, that's what's likely to come back to you. This could be a magical kind of process something that just happens to you , but it can also be because that's what you're expecting and are therefore more open to seeing and acknowledging the things that fit your expectations.
This can feed either positive or negative expectations. For example, if you believe the only way life can get better is to purge everything you aren't comfortable with from your life, you might become more judgmental toward people who disappoint or disagree with you, and thereby experience an increase in people who annoy or trigger you.
Jupiter's shift into Capricorn might then seem to confirm your more discouraging expectations. That said, you feel what you feel, and if you're feeling down or disappointed or weary, the last thing you'd want to do is double-down on a gloomy state of mind.
At the same time, you can't just make yourself feel up and cheerful without risking the suppression of feelings that could rebound in subconscious ways. Try this on for size: acknowledge how you feel and know that it's okay to feel what you feel. But it's not mandatory to act on those feelings.
Instead, take your feelings and perceptions as a possibility of what could happen or what might continue for a while, but reserve final judgment to see how it turns out. Everything changes, and even when things get worse it's often because there's a process unfolding that needs to play out before something better can emerge. Yes, there's some hard work ahead in order to manifest your dreams and hopes.
Yes, some of the glitter will rub off that vision of the future in the process of manifestation. That's usually how it works, and it doesn't mean the result isn't a good thing.
Sometimes having faith is little more than "wait and see. Capricorn offers the ability to reserve judgment and have patience to see what develops. Act according to your hopes and highest expectations, and remember that the Universe still has a say in how it manifests, so it might look different from what's in your mind's eye.
And that's okay. Capricorn at its best says, "It doesn't have to be perfect. It's okay to be good enough. Light precedes every transition. Whether at the end of a tunnel, through a crack in the door or the flash of an idea, it is always there, heralding a new beginning. You may feel a bit like you're in a catch no-win situation , where the more you try to find balance and harmony, the more you feel like you're chasing your own tail around in circles.
This is a time when healing in relationships and financial problems may be difficult to obtain. Harmony in these areas can seem impossible or blocked, yet it is still necessary to keep trying. By trying anyway, it may be possible to find a solution that meets your needs, even if it may not be what you wanted, hoped for or expected. Strive to find a creative solution that draws on your best side.
Capricorn is about dealing with reality, which can seem lacklustre, harsh, oppressive or disappointing to the normally optimistic Jupiter. September 23 — Autumn Equinox : The leaves may be falling and cold nights are on their way, but there's nothing to fear, as with death comes rebirth. This sign loves to be the life of the party, which can definitely be wonderful but is best balanced when those who know you best are there to help ground you. Be generous. Owls have always symbolized cool, detached wisdom.
Neptune now turns direct after being retrograde for about 5 months. For up to a week before and after this date, you might feel a bit dreamy, disconnected, depressed, sluggish or scatter-brained. The Neptune energy takes you into a non-rational, intuitive place and can stir up feelings and issues from the unconscious. Vivid dreams could give you insight into situations you have been wrestling with, and your intuitive sensitivity might seem to come out of nowhere.
Or you might experience the opposite—your dreams elude you and you feel cut off from your usual intuitive sense. What is happening is that your "right-brain" intuitive, creative, non-rational, faith-oriented is passing the torch to your "left-brain" rational, logical, linear, practical , and you can get caught in the whirlpool of transition. Try not to control the process, but allow it to carry you and point you in a different direction.
The learning you have gathered over the last five months or so—related to spirituality, longing, inspiration, creativity, imagination, fantasy, divination and intuition—can now start to be applied more directly in your life over the next few months. It may be possible to channel your experience into a creative form—possibly artistic, but definitely creating something new out of what has been, which can ultimately be healing and uplifting. Mercury reaches its greatest elongation from the Sun today, meaning it's as far away from the Sun as it's going to get from Earth's perspective.
Mercury is the Morning Star, meaning it is visible in the Eastern sky just before sunrise, which occurs after Mercury has turned Direct and a few days before it leaves the Retrograde Shadow. Thoughts, awareness and decision-making tend to be clearer, and your path ahead may be easier to see.
It can be a good time to reflect on the information and awareness you've gathered in the last couple of months and finalize plans for how best to act on these. If you were feeling confused or frustrated during the retrograde period, things can make more sense now.
Let this be a time of fresh perspective and awareness. Your mind is very open to imagination, dreams and compassion under this transit. This can be a very creative time, when ideas flow like a magical river.
It can also be easy to get caught up in yearning and fantasizing about your hidden wishes, although it is possible to channel this into creative expression. Listening sympathetically to others' problems may come easily now, and you are more likely to get a compassionate response from others about your own problems. However, it may also be difficult to draw clear and firm boundaries with others, since you are more susceptible to the emotional gravity of others.
It is ultimately a time for optimism, hope, creativity and intuition, although it's wise to keep at least one foot on the ground. Spontaneity and liberation burst into your relationships, finances, resources and pleasures. You might feel compelled to try something completely different that shakes up the "same-old-same-old" routines you're used to. The upside is that you have the opportunity to break free of some old habits and breathe some fresh air into your life.
But the downside could come in the form of impulse spending beyond your budget, or recklessness in your interactions and relationships. Strive to break free of what holds you back from being your true self, without destroying the structure of order in your life. It can be easier to take a logical, practical approach to problem-solving and decisions now. It's a good time to make plans and work out the logistics of how you're going to get from "here" to "there" in pursuing your ambitions. Or, you may find it's time to bring closure to finished goals, by distilling and systemizing what you've learned in the past several months.
This will probably require a bit of effort on your part to make it happen, but the opportunity is there if you choose to take it.
This transit can bring mental stability and the ability to apply your mental focus in a practical and grounded way. It may be easier to see things realistically and objectively. Creative energy can become productive and rewarding, if you use it methodically or logically. Today, and up to a few days before and after, you may find that all the lights seem to be green for you to move ahead and take action. This might be a spontaneous impulse to seize the moment, or it could be about taking the next step in a project or process that you've been planning and carefully considering.
It could also be a time when your emotions are more easily expressed. There may be someone who is urging, inspiring or rousing you to take this action. It's up to you to decide if this is wise and in your best interest, and if so, the best way to make this happen. In Capricorn, Jupiter must make hard decisions, limit its scope and work with concrete conclusions and answers.
Since Jupiter is in its Fall in Capricorn opposite the sign where it is Exalted , this is not an easy job description for Jupiter, which prefers to work with possibilities, speculation, adventure and expansion. Under Jupiter in Capricorn, your leading edge of growth is likely to be aimed more at manifestation than exploration. At best, this transit can inspire you to bring a visionary, principled, compassionate or optimistic perspective to the way you do business, deal with limitations, assume authority, and make decisions and plans.
