There's a feeling in the air caused by Pluto at the end of a sign and Mars and Saturn both retrograde that it's time to bring things to completion. Let that be the theme of the next two weeks: are you finished and done with certain things you've been doing or will your enthusiasm return? Do you want this to be the last time you go to a place or do certain kinds of work or do you want to continue on?

It's the last full day of Capricorn so you may feel like working. There is a potential for male-female friction tonight.
