the faceless structures that you appeal to?

Scrutiny is helpful only to a point.
Saturday and Sunday, remember to look up and not get bogged down with the shadow cast by the seeming importance of it all.

You’ve been trying to make it alright on all the levels at home.
The tenacity that requires will need to be maintained.

Your capacity for play just skyrocketed.
Yes the diplomatic efforts will ramp up, trying to soothe the interplay between routine/habitual tasks/check-ins and the control you do or don’t have over what’s happening in the work life of your body.
Fun and playfulness are what supports your sense of self and well-being this week.
You tried things a certain way with key family members or within your literal home-space, an experiment that came into its trial mode either with the last new moon or since October 11th.

By next weekend, an inspired-yet-honest viewpoint gets the most support.
Your routines are undergoing an evaluation.
There are only so many things that are truly worth doing and here you are trying something that feels authentic and necessary.
Be reassured: you’ve been thrown so many twists and turns and curveballs that you may be losing sight of how magnificent your adeptness truly is.
It’s very easy to see things that aren’t there in the people you are closest with for example.
This tends to paint a rosier picture than reality, but this weekend Saturn is here to assist you in clearing away some of the mist.
The questions around value, rules and structure at home, and your uncertain hopefulness around work all conspire to create a mounting clarity.
As the moon encourages us to keep keeping on, you’re ready to introduce some sparkle to the daily tasks of life.

Action has been happening to cause you to exert effort in your more unconscious places.

Your control over your daily habits may feel over-sensitized.
The truth is that there is a recent boon in the area of resources that you have in your possession.
The spotlight is on you this season.
Much of the action is now coming from others or is a natural result of your previous accumulated patterns.
It’s just more in your face now.
If you’ve been dabbling in many creative endeavors without clarity or focus, this weekend could help you ground your impulses in structures and habits that would make a more consistently possible foundation.
There is support for rapid learning.
As you integrate the events since October 11th, take advantage of the reflection it gives you.
It’s worth going into the differences you might see between who you thought you were being and the messages you were sending; how you were absorbing life vs how you see it during this process.
The caution here is about balance.
How can you learn about yourself in an accountable yet helpful way that empowers you as well as the people you are accountable to going forward?

What are you putting that Capricorn drive into?
The topics may be different than in other years but it’s still a mountain to climb.
This week it may be a vulnerable mountain of feelings, but you’ve taken its measure and are getting plenty of data from your extended networks.
There are productive moments to integrate these conversations as you go about your routine.
Some vulnerabilities are best faced with the optimism of rosy glasses.
That way you whittle down to the truth instead of having to add hopefulness in later.

Take it all as the penetrating data that it is and know that you’re justified in taking the time to integrate.
Your early weekdays help to maintain the forward-thinking structures that you began at the last new moon.
Wednesday turns this re-commitment into momentum.
Yes, you’ll be aware of the sensitive power dynamics but in general this is not as chaotic as last week.
It is just as productive to describe events of the heart as it is to describe events of the material world.
It’s just that the second one is more suited to the vulnerable privacy of trusted friends.
With a little flexibility and some grounded input from those you consider your mentors, this is a steady and productive experiment.
Your public persona is in a full-on retrospective party this week.
This can assist with some dark humor around whatever conflict is seeming to require an abundance of negotiation.
Even when you feel conflict continuing to simmer away, there’s some wisdom to be had in the lead-up to the weekend.
You aren’t expected to have it all figured out in order to show up with a valid opinion.
Honor the habit-breaking that is happening as you go along.
