Until the last week of December, this is one of the most private, withdrawn periods of the year for you, dear Capricorn.

By the second week of the month, your energy for furthering professional and worldly ambitions is strong, and you could be especially interested in accomplishing practical goals. There is increased satisfaction in taking care of your more basic concerns and a stronger sense of pacing and timing. You may find yourself taking on the role of consultant or advisor this month, or you could benefit from assistance from someone. Good publicity may come your way. There could be news or even a setback regarding financial or emotional support from others around the 17th, but you soon discover that it’s a blessing in disguise. Stronger awareness of your intimate needs figures strongly as well. Courage is stronger from mid-month for making changes on the home front, with family, and personally, as you may be especially interested in freeing yourself from the more negative early conditioning. Independence is sought now. Financial matters pick up speed as well, and you’re likely to be very motivated to make more money. Venus is in your sign all month, bringing out your natural charm for all to see. Venus turns retrograde on the 21st - a cycle that lasts through to the end of January. during this retrograde cycle. When Venus occupies your sign, you tend to enjoy special attention from others and from love interests - you tend to have the upper hand. But when Venus turns retrograde, there can be some cooling off in love relationships, or this could be a period of review or confusion. Venus will continue to move through your sign after the retrograde period, from February 1-March 5, 2014, and you are likely to enjoy the attention as well as the time to get more comfortable in your own skin. Even with Venus retrograde, in the last week of the month, your time spent on reflection begins to pay off, and you’re ready to tackle life with a new game plan.
