Capricorn season begins on the darkest and shortest day of the year, the Winter Solstice. This year it also marks the exciting Grand Mutation. Big changes are ahead after a long period of strife. Sagittarius season opened our eyes to situations and patterns that no longer serve us or have left us feeling unfulfilled. This new season provides an opportunity to detach and move on.
This opportunity comes through the Son of Swords, who asks us to live in alignment with our beliefs, to be bold enough to speak the truth, and to create our own future. To do this we will need to balance this exciting energy with that of the Father of Cups. He is compassionate and wise and relies on both his heart and mind to guide his decisions. By finding ways to center and ground ourselves during this time, we can hone our own emotional maturity and act passionately from a grounded place.
To meet the expectations of this season, we should rely on our Ace of Pentacles spirit. As we close out 2020 and enter a new year, we can use this fired up energy to our advantage to dream far and wide. We have the power to manifest our heart’s greatest desires — emotional stability, security, material abundance —but we must be ready to put in the work. We must also try to release any conflicted Five of Wands tendencies. Detach from past tensions and disagreements, let go of the negative thought patterns and habits. It’s time to move on.
As a result, we can embrace the energy of the Ace of Cups. An abundance of love, inspiration, and creative potential are ours for the taking. This may be a great time of spiritual or emotional growth. Old wounds can heal as we step into the future and embrace the expansiveness that this season is providing us with.
