It's a wild, wild world inside of you these days, Capricorn. While still continuing to shine at outer world pursuits, you are feeling the queasiness of instability running through your sector of home and family. You are being rocked to the core. Mercury is retrograde in this area of your universe as well, so that you are busy reviewing familial arrangements which will continue to shift as the month wears on. You may be striving to hold on, but change in inevitable, perhaps dramatic and certainly surprising, and part of a larger cycle of transformation that has held you in its grip of tough love for the past year or more. Newfound possibility will eventually work its way into even your professional life, but there is no need to be afraid. Fore-warned is fore-armed.
As the month begins, you are definitely still out for success in the material world of professional commitment and acknowledged reputation, but with a distinct twist. Something is gnawing at you from deep down inside, affecting your sense of emotional security. There could be a series of startling revelations in the offing that provide you with important and timely information that might help you to reach a better concept of integration of all your various parts. With Mercury retrograding through your sector of home and family, it is in any case a great time for reflection and not such a good one for jumping out with brand new endeavors. The New Moon of Sunday, April 3rd, gives you plenty of energy for these more or less internal tasks. You have a naïve sense of optimism now that is also countered by an extreme dose of practical thinking which is totally at odds with it, and which yet gives you a hint of grace unfolding. Your ongoing transformation is far from complete, since with each height ascended, new vistas emerge, together with new challenges. You are beginning to see how the events and accomplishments of your life reflect your inner truth. The First Quarter Moon of Monday, April 11th, brings important partners into the picture as well, although not without a certain amount of bumpiness. It is just perhaps so difficult to allow for any strongly expressed viewpoint that is not your own. You are taking a strong stand at this juncture and might need to ensure that in interpersonal conflicts that may arise you stay calm and address your inward reactivity before speaking out. Communication can become confused at this point in time as well, so that it is good to adopt principles of "active listening" in which you repeat back to an interlocutor what it is that you thought you heard, before responding. The Full Moon of the following weekend, taking place on Sunday evening, April 17th, makes for a more peaceful time, although perhaps still one that is highly charged energetically. There remains loads of enthusiasm to be making important moves although much of it is directed internally. Then the Last Quarter Moon of Easter Sunday, April 24th, after Mercury has changed to direct motion, constitutes a terrific time to mull everything over that has happened in the first three weeks of this cycle. You are learning as you go, that is the beauty of this life, as long as you can stay open to the information that is streaming into your consciousness with every passing moment.
